assessment of $2.65 per term for
renovation of the Michigan Union.
Students again next year will
probably also be required to pay
severaladditional fees each term
$2.92 for Michigan Student Assembly
programs, 41.50 student activity fee,
and 50 cents for school and college
govern~ments.
In addition, students must pay a
Health Service assessment each
term. Since the amount of the
Health Service increase is still in
question, it was not includedsin' the
estimate. Students this year pay $17 per
term for Health Service, an increase of
70 per cent over last year's figure.
Another large increase is expected this
year as the Health Service nears its

mandated condition of self-sufficiency,
at which point it will not receive any,
more funds from the University general
fund.
THE PROPOSED range of increases
falls within President Carter's volun:
tary price guidelines, according to
University Vice President for Financial
Affairs James Brinkerhoff. Individual
University charges do not necessarily
have to fall within the guidelines, said
Brinkerhoff, but the University must
attempt to remain below an aggregate
figure of 9.5 per cent. Brinkerhoff said
charges for services not previously
provided are not covered by the
guidelines.
"We are making a specail effort to
stay within the guidelines,"
Brinkerhoff said.
Newton trial
continues
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Black
Panther leader Huey Newton was home
writing about "murderous warfare"
between blacks and the police at the
time he is accused of killing a 17-year-
old prostitute, a defense witness
testified yesterday.
Writer Donald Freed testified he was
with Newton at the Black Panther
leader's home the night Kathleen Smith
was killed on an Oakland street corner.

By RON GIFFORD
The Michigan Nurses Association
(MNA) has filed an unfair labor prac-
tice against the University, alleging the
University "interferes with, restrains
and coerces employees in the exercise
of their rights" under the contract
negotiated between the two groups last
March.
Certified as the bargaining represen-
tative for a unit of registered
professionrl nurses in February 1975,
the MNA requires in its contract that the
employees in the bargaining unit must
"tender either the uniformly required
MNA dues or the representation-ser-
vice fee ... or an objection thereto."
Failure to do this would lead to the
University being notified that the em-
ployee should be fired under the
agreements in the contract.
THE PHIRASE "or an objection
thereto" has become central to the
dispute between the University and the
MNA. An employee filed an objection to
the dues which the MNA found unac-
ceptable, and subsequently advised the
University that that employee should
be fired. The University refused,
claiming the language of the contract
specified that any objection to the dues
would be sufficient.
Univesity attorney William Lemmer
said the MNA claims that the only valid
objections to the payments are ones of
which they approve. In a letter to the

employee, the MNA stated "an objec-
tion we do consider bona fide is found in
Seciton 19 of the Labor-Management
Relations Act," which exempts only
persons who conscientiously object to
joining or supporting labor
organizations.
Neither this federal law nor any state
law applies to state institutions,
however, and the University claims
that under those circumstances, it is
the mutually negotiated provision of the
contract that governs both sides.
IN A LETTER to the MNA, a Univer-
sity lawyer wrote, "There is nothing in
the contract, either stated or implied,
which requires other than an objection
with reasons to paying the dues or ser-
vice fee. Nothing requires a 'valid' ob-
jection as determined by the
Association (MNA)."
Lemmer said he could see no reason
for filing the unfair labor practice
because the action alleges a violation of
the state labor law, which he said did
not occur. If anything, this should be a
matter for a third-party arbitrator, sin-
ce it is a labor contract dispute, he said.
A hearing has been scheduled on
April 10 before the Michigan Em-
ployment Relations Commission
(MERC) to allow both sides to present
their cases.
Regents
studying
losses
Continued from Page 1)
hasn't been discussed among the
Regents as a group.
Regent Paul Brown (D-Petoskey)
said he was also uninformed of the fun-
ds' profit-making in recent years.
"We just have got to take a look at it.
it's really about the first time that I've
been made aware of it,-" Brown said.
ACCORDING TO Herbert the funds
were much more profitable over the
last ten years. A similar NACUBO
study of"70 university endowment funds
frog 1968-1978 ranked the University
22nd. And the University even topped
the 25 per cent increase mark in the
early 1970s.
The University official added that
about 60 per cent of the endowment
funds is presently invested in common
stock, 35 per cent is involved in fixed in-
come investments, and the other five
per cent is tied up in mortgage loans.
Though Herbert admits the stock
market is the cause of much of the fun-
ds' problems, he maintains such in-
vestments are, unlike fixed income in-
vestments, "one way to ward off the
depreciation of the dollar."
ONE PARTICULAR stock purchased
by the University's funds-an invest-
ment in Government Employes In-
surance Co.-eventually cost the funds
over a $600,000 loss.
The National Bank of Detroit (NBT)
advises the. University on its invest-
ments.
Though the Detroit Free Press Sun-
day reported that the. Regents are
looking for different advisors for some
of its investments, Waters, Brown, and
Deane Baker (R-Ann Arobr) said no
specific efforts to review NBD policies
has yet been made.

GRADUATE STUDIES IN
PREVENTIVE MEDICINE AND
COMMUNITY HEALTH"
Students holding baccalaureate, master's or pro-
fessional degrees are invited to apply to the Graduate
Program in Preventive Medicine at The Ohio State
University. The program opens career opportunities
in the study of the health of human populations, the
investigation of the causes of disease, and the plan-
ning of preventive strategies. There is growing de-
mand for persons educated in these areas in com-
munity, state, federal and international organiza-
tions concerned with health and health care delivery.
Students in our program have come from such di-
verse backgrounds as the biological and social sci-
ences, engineering, education and the humanities,
as well as the medical sciences. Our Department of-
fers the M.S. and the Ph.D. degrees.
