4$95.6 MILLION REQUEST:
Regents Dunn (front), Huebner, and Cudlip
By DAVE CHUDWIN
The annual battle of the
budget began yesterday as the
Regents asked for an increase
in state funds of $22 million
for the University. The r e -
quest for 1971-72 state appro-
priations totals $95.6 million.
The budget proposal now goes
to the Bureau of the Budget in the
governor's office, where, if past
experience is an indication, it willI
be cut before being presented to
the Legislature in January.
No tuition increases are in-
cluded in the budget plan, which
forsees the University spending
$143.6 million for general expens-
es in 1971-72. The present gen-
eral fund budget is $121.2 million.
"The figures in the original re-
quests from the schools and col-
leges were drastically reduced, but
the remaining figure is still large."
Vice President for Academic Af-
fairs Allan Smith said at the Re-
Smith explained that the $22
million hike is necessary to offset
inflationary effects on salaries,
equipment and supplies as well as
to provide more funds for select-
More than $10 million of the
requested increase would go to-
wards higher salaries and wages.
"Our salary program has not kept
pace with inflation, civil service
wages and pay in private indus-
try," Smith said.
Another $1.4 million of the
additional funds asked for by the'
Regents would be used to increase
student aid money, especially the
Opportunity Awards Program for
Thz remainder would pay for'
items such as library materials
and services, computer services,
and other non-salary needs.
Since the Legislature has ap-
proved increases in University ap-
propriations of only $4-5 million
in the last few years, observers
doubt the Legislature will give the
University anywhere near $22 miil-"
lion in additional funds.
"Our job is to outline what we,
think we need" Smith explained,j
acknowledging that the requested
increase might not be granted.
"It's no secret that the state is
not going to have that kind of
, He denied, however, that the
University asked for more money'
than it needs, anticipating cuts by
governor's office and the Legisla-
ture. "I don't think universities
asked for more than they need, al-;
though they might ask for more
money than they expect," he said.

The Regents yesterday reaffirmed conditions set by Pres-
ident Robben Fleming for use of University facilities by the
Gay Liberation Front for a midwest conference on homosex-
However, Vice President for Student Services Robert
Knauss said afterwards that some accomodation with GLF
could probably be worked out. "My own position is that the
group has demonstrated good faith and should be able to use

Fleming said the decision on the matter would be left to
Knauss but that Knauss' determination w ou 1 d likely be
