U Requests '64-65 Appropriations
To Exceed $1600 Per Student
By LAURENCE KIRSHBAUM
The "blue ribbon" citizen's group investigating higher education
will recommend to Gov. George Romney that the 10 state supported
colleges and universities receive appropriations mainly on a money'
per-student basis.
However, there will be "definite allowances" made to account for
an institution's graduate enrollment and its level of faculty salaries,

A faculty committee is drafting
two proposals designed to give the
faculty a clearer voice in all-
University policy making.
The group, called the committee
on University freedom and respon-
sibility, is one of the working
units of the Senate Advisory Com-
mittee on University Affairs (SA-
CAU). Its chairman, Prof. Claude
A. Eggertsen of the education
school, said yesterday the commit-
tee probably will suggest:
-A new University Senate by-
law providing for SACUA partici-
pation in the selection of all fac-

with
and

University-wide problems,
75-Member Board

-The establishment of a 75-
member faculty board to express
faculty opinion between the semi-
annual meetings of the Senate.
The first proposal, which "we
hope to have ready" for the Dec.
9 Senate meeting, would have
SACUA submit a list of faculty
members from which a faculty
committee would be appointed.
Such ad hoc oommittees gen-
erally are formed to provide fac-
ulty consultation when some new

University-wide move is being con-
sidered. Prof. Eggertsen cited the
forthcoming University sesqui-
centennial celebration and the
"educational aspects" of the
Union-League merger as examples.
'Wider Representation'
The proposal "could aid in
bringing about wider representa-
tion in relation to University prob-
lems. Also, because of its part in
the appointing process, the fac-
ulty might take a greater interest
in these committees," Prof. Eg-
getsen said.
The second proposal is aimed at
another problem: because the

University Senate only meets twice'
a year, it is not always available
for consultation when "relatively
quick statements of faculty opin-
ion are needed within a short
period of time." And SACUA, the
Senate's executive organ, meets
monthly but can speak only in
behalf of its own members.
The proposed 75-member board
is aimed at filling this gap. Meet-
ing once a month, it would be
empowered by the Senate to ex-
press faculty opinion. For example,
it could speak out on the proposed
expansion of Flint College to a
four-year institution, on the in-

state vs. out-of-state student ratio,
or on University expansion policy,
Prof. Eggertsen commented.
More Intensive
Also, "it is though that a group
of this sort not only would be rep-
resentative of the whole faculty,
but that it would be able to study
more intensely than is now the
case the outstanding problems of
the University at large," he added.
This second proposal should be
ready for submission at the spring
meeting of the Senate.
Noting his committee's "broad
mandate" from SACUA, Prof. Eg-
gestsen said the group chose the

faculty-participation question be-
cause it is "basic to the whole
matter" of faculty freedom and
responsibility. It has been work-
ing on the problem for two years.
"The members of the committee
feel that the growth of the Uni-
versity and the increase in the
complexity of its problems has
meant that the Senate's ability to
deal with problems within its con-
cern is not so great as formerly."
He hopes the Senate will approve
of a change in the organization of
the faculty which will give it more
of a share in decision-making," he
said.

"Alvin Bently, chairman of the sub-
committee charged with making a
recommendation soon to Romney,
disclosed recently.
The University has asked Rom-
ney to'recommend a legislative ap-
propriation next year exceeding
$1600 per student. This is more
than $600 above the overall per-
student average for the 10 institu-
tions last year.
High Level of Salaries
The University received a per-
student appropriation of over $500
above the all-state average last
year because of its high level of
faculty salaries and the strong per-
centage of graduate students
which are more expensive than
undergraduates.
Administrators from other large
state institutions, including Michi-
gan State University's President
John Hannah, have criticized past
University appropriations in call-
ing for them to be based along
tighter per-student lines.
MSU's enrollment surpassed the
University for the first time this
year and is expected to increase
over 3000 next year. The Univer-
sity's enrollment rose about 800
this year.

Conlin Sees
Tax Delays
By THOMAS COPI
Rep. Rollo G. Conlin (R-Tip-
ton) yesterday gave two explana-
tions for Gov. George Romney's
failure to call for the bills needed
to implement the new state con-
stitution.
He claimed that Romney did not
want to confuse his tax reform
program with the implementation
program and also noted that the
preparation of the bills has not
yet been completed.
Conlin, chairman of 'the Joint
Interim Committee on Statute Im-
plementation, said that his com-
mittee 'is busy drafting the bills
necessary for the implementation
of the new constitution, but has
not yet completed the work.
Bills to Meet Deadline
"I can't say when the bills will
be ready, although I'm sure that
they'll clear by Nov. 15, the date
when the Legislature will probably
recess for the deer hunting sea-
son;" Conlin said.
"We'll have the bills printed
while we're in recess, and then
we'll be ready for the governor's
call for them at any time after
that," he noted.
The 18-man implementation
committee, which is strictly bipar-
tisan, is divided into three sub-
committees: judiciary, executive,
and elections. Conlin said that
most of the work to be done is in
elections because of the extensive
changes in election procedures
outlined in the new constitution.
70-80 Bills Needed
He also said that although a
great many bills would be needed
in the implementation of the new
constitution, the figure 200 pre-
sented by Rep. Gail Handy (R-
Eau Claire) represents some "pret-
ty wild guessing."
"Actually, there will probably be
from 70 to 80 bills-certainly less
than 100. Some of them won't take
any more than just the minimum
physical procedure to be passed,
but others may cause quite a bit of
controversy," Conlin pointed out.

For Students
For the moment, students will
not be admitted to meetings of the
University freedom and respon-
sibility oommittee of the Senate
Advisory Committee on University

said yesterday.

Seek Standard Definition
In completing its exact subcom-
mittee report this weekend to be
sent to Romney by December,
Bentley emphasized t h a t his
group will work on finding a
standard way to define enroll-
ment, called a "head count"
figure.
The difficulty in determining a
figure comes from the question
of whether or not to include ex-
tension service students, Bentley'
explained.
The University had only about
26,000 of a total paying enrollment
of 32,000 last year studying on
the Ann Arbor campus.
Despite these variables in en-
rollment figures, his interim com-
mittee will try to make per-
student costs the "major criterion"
for the governor and Legislature
to use, "since that is what they
currently use anyway," Bentley
said.
University Executive Vice-Pres-
ident Marvin L. Niehuss comment-
ed last night that he was unable
to tell "what formula the legis-
lators use, but it has certainly not
been on a basis of head count
alone."
The head count or per-student
figures are "all right as a basis if
you make allowances for salaries
and salary increases," he said.
Bentley showed that one way in
which the faculty salary levels will
be allowed as an important var-
iable in appropriation determin-
ations is to compare the levels
with salary ranges of competing
institutions.

Significant Facet
Another significant facet of the
order was injunctive restraint
against the prosecution of peace
warrants, a legal weapon which
has come into play recently in
fighting integration efforts.
Also released under bond were
a 14-year-old Negro girl and two
Negro men held since August. The!
girl had been denied bail by juve-
nile court authorities.
In a 2-1 decision, a three-judge
court issued an injunction barring
prosecution of charges under the
two statutes. The order itself went
further and set a deadline of 6
p.m. yesterday for release of all
six prisoners under bond on other
charges.

The two brothers were recap-

The suicide, according to a dip-
omatic source, took place in an

There was no official confirma-

A new government was installed.

Washington had no advance

it had no hand in the uprising.
The Ngo Dinh family had been
accused of oppressive measures
against Buddhists and was at odds
with the United States on this
question.
American officials took emer-
gency measures to protect Amer-

Stat e Favors
college Aid.
. WASHINGTON OP) - Senate-
House conferees made rapid pro-
gress yesterday toward final
agreement on a $1.2-billion five-
year, college education aid bill.
Two controversial points remain
to be settled. But Rep. Adam C.
Powell (D-NY), heading t h e
House group, and Sen. Wayne
Morse (D-Ore), leading the Sen-
ate delegation, said they believed
these could be disposed of with-
out too much difficulty.
The conferees meet again to-
day.
Both Senate and House ver-
sions of the legislation contain
grant and loan funds for con-
struction of classroom and other
facilities at four-year and junior
colleges.
President John F. Kennedy
recommended a broad college aid
program but said the construction
money should be limited to loans.
In their biggest decision yester-
day, the conferees agreed to take
the basic money figures of the
House bill which contains specific
authorizations for three years
with the final two years to be
fixed later.
Remaining to be settled are
these questions:
1) Whether the grant funds
should be for limited purpose, as
in the Senate bill, or for all types
of college buildings, as voted by
the House.
2) Whether to include a Sen-
ate amendment authorizing tax-
payer suits challenging any grant
or loan to a religious college on
the ground that it violates the
first amendment to the Consti-
tution.
