school is going to have to ex-
pand, if it so desires."
Joint Request Possible
To cut down duplication in
planning, a concept unprece-
dented in state history may
develop-a joint capital outlay
(building and renovation) re-
quest to the Legislature from
all the state's schools.
"This is probably what we
need," Pierpont acknowledged.
"It's been talked about for
several years."
Under the plan, schools would
form some sort of central
agency to hash out needs and
priorities of each school, then
send a total request to Lansing.
Influencing Factors
In addition to the proposed
joint board, what other factors
will influence the level of the
University's request over the
next decade?
"Levels of teacher's salariea
are proportionally low. An in-
crease in salaries over the next
ten years would certainly affect
out budget request," Pierpont
noted.
The establishment of any new
programs or disciplines would
also affect the budget, he con-
tinued.
Size Relevant'
"The size of the University in
terms of students taught" will
also require more money. And if
;he state recognizes┬░ the Uni-
versity's request for more re-
search funds, the budget will
swell, he said.4
"Finally, any increase in en-
rollment will require more
buildings, for which operating
expenses will be required."
Pierpont feels the University
must continue careful scrutiny
of its needs.
"Each year a study must be
made of salary levels, number
of students-here now and ex-
pected-and possible new pro-
grams," he said. "We have to
set up a program which assures
us we're proceeding soundly to-
day.,

New Costs of Education

i

"Shall education be a publicv
service, or shall it be a commodity
to be bought and paid for by indi-
viduals able to pay?" Prof. Merritt
M. Chambers asked recently.
At a meeting of the American
Association for the Advancement
of Science, in Chicago, Prof.
Chambers predicted that operating
costs would rise at least $6 billion
dollars from the present $4 billion
a year and enrollments will double
by 1970 in the' nation's colleges
and universities.
"State governments are now ap-
propriating over $1%'A billion yearly.
Students are paying about $1 bil-
lion a year and private gifts are
about $1 billion a year. The fed-
eral government's contribution to

operating funds is comparatively
negligible. Prof. Chambers esti-
mated this amount at $500 million.
Federal:Government Able
"Only the federal government
seems capable of producing a
materially larger contribution than
at present," Chambers declared.
"By 1970, if student fees continue
as they are, an additional $1
billion will come automatically
from the doubling of enrollments.
Private gifts will probably produce
another $1 billion a year within a
decade."
Another $4 billion will be needed,
he said, which must come from
either the student and his family
or from government tax funds.
There are some people who say
thaat student fees should be raised
in public institutions from the
average of 20 per cent which they
now pay and raised from approxi-
mately 60 per cent to 100 per cent
in private schools, he said.
Families Would Pay
If ,this happened, "families
would pay for education as they
now pay for housing and hard-
goods," Prof. Chambers said. But
this plan ignores "the fact that
few students are willing- to mort-
gage their futures, that no girl
wants a prospective husband with
a long-term debt, that this scheme
is discriminative against women
and that the state universities and
colleges were originally intended
to be thet capstone of free public
school systems in every state."
