'U' agrees on trial
bus service extension

A one-month trial period for exten-
ding North Campus bus service was in-
formally approved at a special
Michigan Student Assembly (MSA)
meeting yesterday attended by Univer-
sity President Robben Fleming and
other University administrators.
The proposal, initiated by MSA
representative Richard Pace, includes
extending bus service three additional
hours - to 3:30 a.m. on week nights, 4
a.m. on Fridays, and 4:20 a.m. on
Saturdays. Some modifications could
occur before implementation of the one-
month trial program, which is expected
by the middle of next month.
THE PROPOSAL was the result of a
survey of University student demand
and cost research completed by Pace
during the past month.
In the survey of 400 students riding
the North Campus buses, 79 per cent
said they would use the extended bus
service. Forty per cent of those polled
said they would use the bus service
more than once a week, 39 per cent once
a week, and the remainder about once a
The" most common reason given by
students for supporting the additional
bus service was returning from Central
Campus libraries (49 per cent). Central
Campus residents returning from the
North Campus computer center and
other research facilities which stay
open all night were also reasons given
for supporting the new hours.
IN ARGUING his proposal, Pace ad-
ded current bus service hours place an

extra burden on North Campus residen-

University administrators sided with
Pace's contention that'many University
students face safety risks while walking
late at night when a bus is not available.
Pace referred to his research to sup-
port his argument that bus service on
football Saturdays "is approaching an
unsafe situation" due to overcrowding.
His data for 11 a.m. and noon bus ser-
vices from North Campus shows rider-
ship is frequently more than 100 people
on 53-person capacity buses.

THE BILL ALSO sets priorities for
cuts that may be made if the BEOG ap-
peopriation is reduced in future years.
If funding is lowered cuts will be taken
from the middle and upper income
groups first, said Grotrian.
There are currently more work study
jobs on campus than students to fill
them because of funding restraints. If
the legislation is signed by President
Carter the University may be able to
pay more students more money for
their work study employment. Grotrian
did caution, however, that inflation and
a minimum wage hike could also effect
this program.
The modification in consideration of
dependent andindependent stAents
means the portion of assets considered
spendable on education in the past will
be altered to take a more realistic view.
Grotrian said cash and collateral, such
as a house, are considered the same
when an individualis assigned a
discretionary income figure. The
provision of the bill gives a financial
break to people with dependents and
those with assets.
Currently, four per cent of assistance
allocations are used for administrative
expenses at the University financial aid
office, Grotrian said. If the bill is ap-
proved, administrative costs may in-
crease to handle the additional work
load of processing grant and loan ap-
plications, as well as increased student
counseling, he said._
Because of strong lobbying efforts,
the expanded administrative allowan-
ces for BEOG's and GSL's were cut.
Lobbyists feel that until all programs
are fully-funded, no funds should not be
taken away from students for ad-
ministrative costs, Grotrian said.


We think it speaks
for itself.
