Regents approve '71-72 budget

Off-campus housing situation:
Available, though expensive

eek of events planned
to promote environment



The Regents yesterday tenta-
tively adopted the University's
1971-72 general fund budget which
will total $131' million - up $10
million from last year.
The additional money will come
from an increased state appropri-
ation, this fall's 15 per cent tuition
hike and the re - allocation of
money within the University.
The budget, however, is not of-
ficial until Governor William Mil-
liken signs the higher education
bill sometime next week.
The most controversial cutback
was the University's traditional
subsidy to the city of Ann Arbor
for police and fire services. This
year, the city will only receive
$350,000, as opposed to almost
$1.1 million last year.
Both Governor William Milli-
ken and the State Senate had in-
dicated they wanted these pay-
ments ended-pointing out that

Ann Arbor is the only city in the the Regents received letters from

state to receive such a subsidy
from a college it houses.
The budget also provides $1.6
million in new funds for student
aid, most of which will be used
for reaching the increased minor-
ity enrollment commitment made
during the Black Action Move-
ment (BAM) strike in spring 1970.
Shortly before the start of their
public session yesterday morning,

even if voters approve a 1 per cent

maintain the current level of ser-
vices in 1972-73.

While improving the food, the
housing office has also taken steps
to improve dorm security. In re-
cent years the dorms have wit-
nessed a sharp rise in petty
thievery and outsiders wandering
through the buildings.
To combat these problems, ad-
ditional guards have been hired
and equipped with walkie-talkies.
This will enable students to call

In addition, the housing office
is maintaining two of last year's
security systems and plans to ex-
pand one of them to another dorm.
One of the systems, started last
year at Mary Markley, provides
each dorm resident with a special
card. When inserted in a special
device, the card unlocks the jorm's
front door. All the outside doors
can then be locked, denying access
to outsiders.
Mosher - Jordan residents, sim-
ilarly, have been given keys which
unlock the front door late at night.
Due to a typographical er-
ror, The Daily yesterday quoted
President Robben Fleming as,
saying that faculty and staff
salary increases for 1971-72
"will not be implemented." The
president said the increases,
"will now be implemented."

Also highlighting the week's ac-
tivities will be a bike-hike through
Ann Arbor and several informa-
tive discussions and displays.
Sunday's Main St. closing will
include a Children's Center, re-
cycling display. a farmers' market,
and a bicycle clinic.
Marianne Meaa, one of the
week's organizers, hopes that lo-
cal people will bring their arts
and crafts, their musical talents,
and cooking skills to the closed
pedestrian mall. Music groups will
perform that evening.
Would-be pedestrians may en-
joy the 12 mile Walkathon the fol-
lowing Sunday which "will pro-
vi de participants an opportunity
to walk through their town and
help raise funds for the Ecology
Center." according to Pat Tay-
lor of the Ecology Center. "Each
walker will solicit sponsors to back
them at a given rate per mile."
Bicyclers will roam the city on
