Bartlett Hits
Fiscal Plan
"I am greatly concerned that
Gov. George Romney's fiscal re-
form program will not produce
more money," Superintendent of
Public Instruction Lynn M. Bart-
lett declared yesterday.'
Warning that-, education. at all
le eels is urgently in need of funds,,
Barteltt said that "a mere trans-
er of fundsvifajioug. Rm. -
ney proposes to maintain an ap-
proximately $580 million revenue
level while juggling taxes.
He added that he appreciated
Romney's desire to change the
state's archaic tax structure into
one .for a "modern dynamic so-
city," but he noted that the state's
universities and school boards are
preparing budgets now and must
know if they are getting any more
Cannot Wait
They cannot wait until the regu-
lar session of the Legislature for
more money; he said.
Bartlett pointed to a recent sur-
vey by his office which showed
that state support of public schools
had slipped from 52-41 per cent
in the last dozen years and noted
that the school boards had to make
the difference up.
But "something must be done
to releave the burden of the prop-
erty tax," Bartlett declared. He
said that Romney's proposed 20
per cent state! refund on school
taxes will help, but not bring in
needed new revenue.
Blue Ribbon Committee
Bartlett said that he hoped
Romney's "blue ribbon" Citizens'
Committee for Higher Education
will come up with the same con-
clusion that educators have, lend-
ing their support to the "urgent
needs" of higher education.
He noted that the lay citizens'
group had "undoubtably learned
much" in their study of the state's
higher education system and
should point out the urgency of
its needs.
Denying that recent Michigan'
Co-ordinating Council for Public
Higher Education studies of en-
rollment, faculty and capital out-
lay needs was designed to head off
the "blue ribbon" committee's
work, he said that, all the council
wanted was to inform the group.
Any other assistance the coun-
cil can provide is available, Bart-
lett added.
Appeals Case
Prof. Quin Mcboughlin of East-
ern Michigan University, the first
civil rights sit-in demonstrator toy
be tried in Ypsilanti on a loiter-
ing charge, has appealed his mu-
nicipal court conviction to the
circuit court.

the first week in October.
The capital outlay break down
includes $942,000 for campus re-
modeling and renovations and $8.1
million for new .construction. For
Medical Center facilities the Uni-
versity has requested $1.2 million
for remodeling and renovations
and $2.4 million for building.

successfully to obtain funds for

construction request. General hos-
pital renovations are included in
the Medical Center requests.

Study Group1
To Analyze
The 11-member research policy
subcommittee of the Senate Ad-
visory Committee on University'
Affairs will begin soon to organize
a study of some basic questions of
-research at the University.
Prof. Gordon C. Brown of the
public health school chairs the
committee. In an interview yester-
day he outlined some of the ques-
tions he feels the group should
The first matter is "the whole
place of institutes at the Unver-
sity"-groups such as the Institute
of Science' and Technology, the
Mental Health Research Institute,
and many others whose purpose
is to do research in a particular
field. Do they have a responsi-
bility in teaching as well as re-
search? And what is their respon-
sibility and official association in
-th~ academic structure of the
University? T h.e subcommittee
would consider such questions by
inviting institute representatives
to meetings, Prof. Brown said.
Request for Grants
Second, the group may explore
ways of enabling faculty members
who want to do* research to get
grants more easily. This would in-
clude studies of application pro-
cedures and of the Office of Re-
search Administration, which is
supposed to expedite these pro-
This also would include inquir-
ies into the problem of indirect-
costs-the administrative expenses
of a particular research project,
generally amounting to 20-25 per
cent of the project's cost. The fact
that indirect costs must be in-
cluded in grant requestsmakes
grants harder to get, Prof. Brown
Third, the group should evalu-
ate the relationship between re-
search and teaching, Prof. Brown
continued. This would include con-
sidering the potential dangers of
a "research squeeze," in which re-
search would eclipse the teaching
function; and a "teaching squeeze"
in which a faculty member wants
to do research but lacks the time
or: funds.
SACUA has authorized its sub-
committees to admit students
named by Student Government
Council as observers to their meet-
ings. Prof. Brown expressed doubt-
that many students would be in-
terested in the areas the subcom-
mittee will explore.

In the face of the expected
increased enrollment of in state
students next year, the University
will be forced to restrict the num-'
ber of out of state students ad-'
mitted to roughly the same num-
ber admitted this fall, University
President Harlan Hatcher said
Vice-President Marvin Niehuss
had tentatively outlined such a
policy earlier this month.
At a press conference following
the Regents meeting, President
Hatcher explained that although
the percentage of out of state stu-
dents on campus would be re-
duced somewhat by the influx of

in state students, the decrease
would not be a significant one.
Cosmopolitan 'U'
He reiterated his belief in the
value of a cosmopolitan university
and said the University had not
lost sight of its desire to maintain
itself as such.
He also pointed out that the
difference in ratio from this year
to next between the in state stu-
dents and the out of state students
would not be significant enough
to warrant any meaningful criti-
Vice-President Marvin Niehuss
said the Regents had discussed the
situation during their informal
meeting Thursday night.

"Theme is no disposition on the
part of the Regents to cut down
on either out of state or foreign
students," Niehuss said.
He indicated that the Regents
see the realities of the situation
and, while hesitant to enidorse a
policy which might be construed
as lessenening the cosmopolitan
appeal of the University, they are
in general agreement that there
is no other solution.
"Had a better solution to the
problem of out of state student
enrollment been offered, it would
have been adopted," Niehuss said.
The vice-president expressed
pleasure that concern about the

change had been evidenced, but
he cautioned against looking at
the situation too dramatically.
He pointed out that fluctuations
have always occurred in the in
state-out of state student ration
and that, so far, no important
changes were foreseen.
Niehuss also cautioned against
assuming that because the Uni-
versity held the line on out of
state students one year it would
automatically do so each following
year. The policy will be a flexible
one, he said.
Not Peculiar to State
The expected enrollment in-
crease is not peculiar to Michigan

but to the country at large.
view of this fact the vice-preside
pointed out that the situati
might be eased if all states agre
not to raise the barriers agair
out of state students.
"But very few jople see beyo
the first step," he said.
Surveys by the Michigan Boa
of Education indicate that the
wil be a 20-25 per cent increa
over last year in the number
graduating seniors in Michig
high schools this spring.
Assistant Director of Admissic
Byron Groesbeck said the Unive
sity expects a corresponding i
crease in the number of app
cants to the University.

By The Associated Press
LANSING - The tax plan pro-
posed-by Senate Taxation Chair-
man Clyde H. Geerlings (R-Hol-
land) is "ingenious and merits
study," according to Gov. George
Romney, who has also submitted a
fiscal reform program to the
But Romney added that he did
not consider Geerlings' program
"as adequate, clean cut and direct"
as his own plan. "It does not
assure property tax relief the way
our plan does. There is no- assured
relief for senior citizens.I
"In addition, it appears that'
Geerlings' plan would be very
burdensome administratively for
the state and for the taxpayer,"
the governor added.
Local Option PlanI
The major feature of Geerlings'
rival plan is a local-option two
per cent personal income tax. This
contrasts with Romney's plan,
which calls for a two per cent
statewide personal income tax and
a 3.5 per cent statewide corporate
income. tax.
A foe of state-levied income tax-
es, Geerlings had said new taxes
should be levied "at the option of
those concerned intimately" and
should be under their direct con-
trol at the local level.
The Geerlings plan would retain
some of the business taxes Rom-
ney's proposed $308 million ad-
justment in the tax structure
would repeal. However, Geerlings
planned several modifications of
existing levies.
Food Stays Put
Geerlings' plan would exempt
prescription drugs, but not gro-
ceries, from the sales tax, whereas
Romney's plan would exempt both
commodities. Nor would Geerlings'
plan make a 20 per cent state
payment of local school taxes.
Romney said Geerlings "sought
chiefly to do something for the
revenue needs of local government.
But I can't see that he does much
to eliminate injustice in the tax
structure to low-income families
and inequities in business taxes."
The governor added that Geer-
lings' plan to make local units
share in the cost of mental patient
care might "pretty much" force
the statewide use of county in-
comes taxes.
"We backed off the local option
idea (in the area of mental health)
because of administrative difficul-
ties," he added.

To oversee the University's
growing space program, a Space
Science Committee, chaired by
Prof. Wilbur C. Nelson of the en-
gineering college, has been set up.
The group will find and denote
the areas of space research in
which the University should con-
centrate. It will also consider ques-
tions of administration and liaison
with industry in space research,
Vice-President for Research Ralph
A. Sawyer explained.

He also announced that the

determine whether the University
will seek such a center, Heyns said.

Education Committee Plan.
May Miss October Deadline
The newly appointed staff director of Gov. Romney's Citizens
Committee on Higher Education said yesterday that there is "little
hope" that the committee's interim report will be ready by the dead-
line date of Oct. 1.
Harold Smith of the Upjohn Foundation, appointed to the posi-
tion of permanent staff director last Saturday, said that any hope
of meeting the deadline is quickly
"fading" away.
The interim report, dealing with
the short term problems of Michi-
" . gan highereducation, is presently
being prepared by a 12-man sub-
S o c ievcommittee. It will have to be ap-
proved by the full committee be-'

traineeship program, bringing the
total to 25. The students are in
engineering, astronomy, chemistry,
geology, physics and psychology.
Complete Mysis
The oceanography program was
expanded with the completion of
the 50-foot Mysis, an $86,000 ves-
sel built under a National Science
Foundation grant:
The Mysis will join two other
University ships in the $289,000
Lake Michigan project headed by
Prof. John C. Ayers of the zoology
department and the Institute of
Science and Technology. Sawyer
said the total cost of the four-year
Public Health Service-sponsored
project may be over $1 million.
"These new facilities and re-
search activities, and their scope,
are perhaps the best indication of
how the inland oceanography pro-
gram at the University has grown,"
Sawyer remarked.
Accept Boat
The Regents also accepted a 46-
foot boat from Bruce L. Simpson
of Chicago, which probably will be
added to the research fleet.
Other members of the space
committee are Professors Samuel
D. Estep of the Law School, H. R.
Crane of the physics department,.
Paul M. Fitts of the, psychology
department, Fred 'T. Haddock of
