NASA, Sawyer explained.
An estimated 25,500 students will
be enrolled at the University for
residence credit this semester.
The figure is expected to be
down from the record enrollment
of 26,552 set last fall. The drop is
a result of the mid-year gradua-
tion and the relatively small num-
ber of new freshmen and transfer
students enrolling for the first
time at the University.
The smaller number of new
freshmen is due to the general de-
crease in the number of mid-year
high school graduations. The
shorter time between the examina-
tion period and registration ac-
counts for the inconclusive statis-
tics on transfer students.
Many transfers have just con-
cluded exams at other schools and
have not been able to have their
grades transferred to Ann Arbor.

LANSING-In a direct rebuff to
Delta College's wishes for affilia-
tion with the University, Rep.
Raymond C. Wurzel (R-North
Street), chairman of the House
Committee on Education, yester-
day introduced a bill to establish
an independent "piggy-pack" jun-
ior-senior college in the thumb
To be called Saginaw Valley
Senior College, the new institu-
tion would open its doors Sept. 1,
1964, to qualified transfer students
from Delta (a freshman-sopho-
more level college) and any other
institution, although it would
cater mainly to community and
junior college transfers.
This bill already has the unan-
imous informal support of educa-
tion committee members, who op-
pose a Delta tie-up with the Uni-
versity because they feel it would
destroy. the structure of commun-
ity colleges in the rest of the state.
Wurzel's proposal will be con-
sidered in committee next week.
Despite the introduction of his
bill, University officials said yes-
terday that negotiations with
Delta will continue, although no
agreement on a merger has been
Rep. Russell H. Strange (R-
Clare) asserted that "we all rec-
ognize the prestige of the Univer-
sity, but there is, a strong fear
that if it runs rampant up and
down the state gobbling up com-
munity colleges, the concept of
community colleges will be des-
He reported that Michigan State
University President John A. Han-
nah, in testimony last December
before a special legislative com-
mittee which formulated the
"piggy-pack" plan, had warned
that if the University-Delta mer-
ger occurred, then MSU would
also begin to make such overtures
to community colleges.
"So every other community col-
lege in Michigan would then want
to become a four-year institution,"
"But Delta is not just a local
issue; whatever is done will have
bearing on the growth and
structure of community colleges
throughout the whole state. Next

LANSING-Gov. George Romney has recommended $
million for the University's 1963-64 operating budget ii
$115.4 million total budget request for higher education.
The recommendation, $6 million under the $44.2 mil]
requested by the Regents last fall, is only $1.5 million m
than the University received last year.
Romney noted that."the greatest increases in the bud
are for higher education. I recommend this to you because

President John A. Hannah, how-
ever, was most upset. "We had
understood that the governor
would recommend holding the
current level of state support on
a per-student basis and provide
for salary adjustments of about
25 per cent. The figures in the
budget message would not do
this," he asserted.
University Executive Vice-Pres-
ident Marvin L. Niehuss also ex-
Spressed "disappointment" in the
budget. He said that the original
budget request was "tight," and
that we could cut the necessary
increase to $3-3.5 million. However
the $1.5 million boost offerred by
Romney would only provide for
a "token year-round operation"
beginning this fall.
Neither would the University be
able to increase faculty salaries
nor improve the faculty-student
ratio in 1963-64, he said.
Niehuss stated however that, .in
the past few weeks, University of-
ficials had been anticipating an
increase of only $1-1.3 million, so
that the $1.5 million was really
more than they had anticipated.
He noted that last year the Uni-
versity received only half the
needed increase, but a hike in
out-of-state tuitions filled the
deficit. So "this year, we can't
take it from the students," he
The governor also recommend-
ed $32.4 million for Michigan
State, down $7.2 million from the
$39.5 million requested, and $17.1
million for Wayne State Univer-
sity, down $5.5 million from the
request of $22.6 million.
Other recommendations includ-
ed $2.6 million for 3.erris Institute,
$3.5 million for Michigan College
of -Mining and Technology, $3.5
million for Central Michigan Uni-
versity, $3.7 million for Eastern
Michigan University, $1.9 million
for Northern Michigan College, $6
million for Western Michigan Uni-
versity, and $550,000 for Grand,
Valley College. .
It was not immediately apparent
whether other presidents concur-
red with Hannah that Romney did
not recommend the budget allot-
ments reportedly discussed at a
Tuesday meeting between Han-
nah, University President Harlan
Hatcher, WSU President Clarence
Hilberry, and the governor.
Romney also proposed $22.9 mil-
lion in capital outlay funds fora
higher education: The University,
$4.3 million for educational facil-
ities and $500,000 for the Medical
Center; MSU, $3.4 million; WSU,
$3.2 million; Ferris, $985,000;.
Grand Valley, $970,000; Tech,l
$1.5 million; CMU, $1.5 million;1
