'U, 'Michiga,
Once again the annual drama has been played out-the Legisla-
ture has passed the state's appropriations bills and the colleges and'
universities have begun to prepare their operating budgets-but this
year it has taken a more serious turn than previously.
For the University, the consequences are not as apparently severe
as for several others of the nine state-supported institutions.
There will be no drastic cuts in next year's enrollment, no elimi-
nations of complete sections of the academic calendar, no dropping
of scholarships.
But neither will there be any expansion, University President
Harlan Hatcher told the Regents last week. The University will stand
still--in the midst of rapidly growing institutions. The University will
stand still-in spite of the rapidly burgeoning educational needs of
the state and of the nation.
No More Students
There will be no enrollment increases next year except in the
very few areas where new students can be added without any expan-
sion of facilities or staff.
But applicants for the freshman class are better qualified and
more numerous than ever before. The University will turn down about
as many applicants as it admits who would have met its standards
of previous years. And high-school graduates are more and more
numerous each year.





Bu dgets

V There will be no general faculty pay raises at the University next
year. The only raises will be those for promotions and those already
offered to match outside offers.
Faculty raises were the University's first priority with any addi-
tional money it might get from the state-and first within this area
were the young assistant and associate professors on their way up.
Gambles on Loyalty
The lack of raises will leave the University committed to a stiff
gamble-it is betting that "faculty loyalty" will override financial
considerations. Particularly for the young faculty with families to
raise, outside offers will become more attractive as pay differentials
get greater.
And, as Vice-President and Dean of Faculties Marvin L. Niehuss
has pointed out, professors like to take a "careful look" at the cir-
cumstances and future of any institutions offering them jobs.
Hiring Prospects Decrease
With the state refusing to grant the University added funds, and
with little likelihood of pay raises, prospective faculty members will
think twice before coming here.
And without high-quality new blood to replace faculty who retire
or are lost to other institutions in the competitive academic market,
the University will lose its faculty quality-one of its outstanding
But, as President Hatcher explained to the Regents, there is no

alternative to the University's standing still. "The University is faced
with needs that are constantly rising in a geometric progression-but1
is given a budget (by the Legislature) that is static."1
President Hatcher considered two major methods of alleviating
the University's problem, at least temporarily-a tuition boost and
cutbacks in some operations in order to finance others.
No Tuition Raise -
Tuition raises are "no longer a further resource" after last year's
increase, he said. "For 50 years, the University has had a very high;
fee structure. It has long been the highest in the state, both in total'
income and in out-of-state fees."
The University has finally reached the point where it can no
longer look to fee raises for added funds without damage to the insti-1
tution, he said.
Cutbacks Impossible
And cutbacks in side-operations to improve the central core of
University work-teaching and research-are impossible, he noted.
"For many years, the University has had a policy of carefully
controlled-restricted-growth," in which no new programs have been
added without careful consideration. Each new operation added has
been planned as a definite part of the University's central core, leav-
ing nothing outside this essential portion to be cut.
And, in fact, maintenance and other side operations were cut
back in past years, and have not yet reached the levels they were at
in 1957-58.

"The University does not have a large number of adjunct opera-
tions" whose budgets may be pared to provide funds for added facul-
ty, for pay raises, or for other expansion in the'central core, President
Hatcher said.
"Those programs already in existence need and deserve expan-
sion which we cannot give them," he said. "We cannot add any new
programs at the University next year."
But at least the University administration believes that the in-
stitution can survive on its income without cutting the central core.
This is better than many other state institutions.
WSU Cuts Enrollment
Wayne State University was forced to cut its fall enrollment
by 20 per cent across-the-board and to drastically reduce the offer-
ings of its summer session.
Michigan State University raised its out-of-state. tuition and
will slash its operating expenses by about $1 million, cutting back in
several operations.
Ferris Institute was forced to cut its enrollment for the fourth
quarter of this year to 23 per cent of normal and to completely elim-
inate the fourth quarter next year. (The quarter spreads across two
fiscal years, so that one budget can affect two quarters.)
The State Board of Education was forced to raise out-of-state
tuitions at its four institutions (Eastern. Western and Central Michi-
gan Universities and Northern Michigan College) to cease replace.

Visiting Permission
Excludes Freshmen
Say Women Need Year To Gain
Maturity, Adjustment to Campus
Off-campus housing units will still be "off limits" for freshmen
women next fall when other undergraduate women will be allowed to
visit there from noon until regular closing hours in the dormitories.
"We believe that a year's adjustment to the campus allows the
student to gain maturity," Vice-President for Student Affairs James
A. Lewis said Friday. "Freshmen will get to understand the campus
and its customs this way. Since other privileges are granted to upper-
classmen, we thought it would be more meaningful if this one were ad-
ministered the same way."
Consult Subcommittee.
The decision not to include freshmen women was made after
consultation with the University Senate Subcommittee on Discipline

The original recommendation

the same privilege as sophomores,.
juniors and seniors. The proposal
was made by a committee of Dean
of Women Deborah Bacon, Assist-
ant Dean of Men John BingleY,
outgoing Joint Judiciary Chair-
man Howard Stein, '61, and Doro-
thy Wilson, '61, outgoing Women's
Panhel member.
Miss Bacon said she hopes the
carrying out of the ruling can be
left largely to the common sense
of the students and correct educa-
tional information from various
student organizations.
Must Assume Responsibility
"Although the restrictions on
freshmen women will not apply to
many students on campus now,
she said, "not only incoming
freshmen but all other students as
well must assume responsibility for
adherence to the regulation."
The new regulation, approved
by Lewis and the Subcommittee,
on Discipline, was announced Fri--
day following a meeting of Miss
Bacon, Women's Judiciary Chair-
man Deborah Cowles, '62, Joint
Judiciary Chairman Charles Gess-
ner, '$2, and Jane Glick, '62.
Although no method of handling
infractions of the ruling has been
established yet, Miss Cowles said
a standing committee of both
Women's Panhel and Joint Judic
members will probably be formed
to hear referrals of these cases
from the Dean of Women's and
Dean of Men's Offices.

Bevel Claims Group
Holds Primary Goal
NASHVILLE (P)-The chairman
of the Nashville Student Non-
Violence Movement said yesterday
the group still plans to send its
"Freedom Riders" all the way to
their original destination-across
Mississippi to New Orleans.
However, James Bevel said It
was "hard to say" when they
would leave Montgomery, where
their arrival set off Saturday's
race riots.
"When we left it was our inten-
tion to go from Birmingham to
New Orleans, across Mississippi by
regular bus," he said. "That is still
the plan."
Twenty-one racially mixed col-
lege students from Nashville, all
veterans of sit-in or stand-in dem-
onstrations, made the trip from
Birmingham to Montgomery. The
two white girls returned to Nash-
ville Saturday.
The Congress of Racial Equality
(CORE) said last night it hopes
to begin another leg of the "Free-
dom Ride" today. CORE head-
quarters said six members ar-
rived in Montgomery yesterday
morning and National Chairman
James Farmer had tried all day to
make bus reservations for them.
Farmer went to Montgomery
Sunday night after violence mark-
ed the arrival of the biracial Ten-
nessee group.
Bevel said about 30 other Ne-
gro students arrived in Montgom-
ery Sunday and yesterday to join
the original group. He said they
were from Atlanta, New Orleans,
Washington, D.C., and North and
South Carolina.

Bacon Charts Novel Course

There is no serious question over
the legality of the federal govern-
ment's intervention in the Ala-
bama race riots, two members of
the political science department
agreed last night.
"I rather seriously doubt that
the governor of Alabama thinks so
either," Prof. John White said yes-
Helps Gain Success
"We must keep in mind that
while federal intervention in Lit-
tle Rock was successful, it also
enabled Gov. Orval Faubus to gain
great political success, and I'm
afraid that other southern gov-
ernors may attempt to follow his
example," Prof. White said.
"Southern governors, however,
are sworn to uphold the laws of
their states," Prof. Joseph Kallen-
bach noted, "and in many states
segregation laws have not been
challenged by the courts and still
remain on the statute books."
Choose Justification
The United States has chosen
to justify its intervention on the
basis of the Statute of 1871 which
clearly gives the federal govern-
ment the right to keep the peace

White claimed. "The federal gov-
