Faster transcripts
If all goes well, you'll no longer have to wait
a month or more for last term's transcripts to
arrive. In fact, the forms should be in the mail
today in a new system that provides partial trans-
cripts listing only the most recent term's grades.
The abbreviated new reports will still contain
cumulative grade points and total credits, but
the complete records reflecting all the work done
previously at the University will be eliminated.
The schools of law, medicine, dentistry and en-
gineering will not be affected. The previous
system was changed partly because of student
criticism over the delay. The new system will
definitely be faster, and hopefully cheaper as well.
Associate Registrar Douglas Wooley said that since
the time spent copying will be greatly reduced,
costs in personnel and supplies should be reduced
as well. He could not predict how much cash the
system will save.
Student regents
It's a statewide student victory to begin the
new year: Gov. William Milliken has signed into
law a bill to permit students to sit on the governing
boards of Michigan colleges and universities. The
measure was sponsored in the state legislature by
Rep. Perry Bullard (D-Ann Arbor). Milliken said
the new act "may serve as a productive step in
improving relationships between administrators and
students." The measure also guarantees 23-year-
old Michael Einheuser a seat on Wayne State's
Board of Governors. Without the signature, Ein-
heuser would have faced a court battle to retain
his seat.
State of cosmos
As inevitably as winter, University astronomer
Hazel "Doc" Losh has issued her State of the
Cosmos report. And she reports that the weather
will get colder this month despite longer daylight
)ours, due to the "lag of the seasons." Tpays will
become "lopsidedly longer" by one hour near
January's end. She explains that the lengthening
will be noticeable in the evening. "This can be
raced to the fact that our clocks run at a constant
rate while the earth actually speeds up and slows
down in a regular, predictable pattern during its
yearly orbit around the sun," says Doc. Mean-
while, stay tuned for the conjunction of Venus
and Mercury this month. Astronomy lecturer James
Loudon reports that from January 10-27, the planets
will be so close in the west-southwest "that a fifty-
cent piece held at arm's length will cover both
of them." They will be closest January 17-18, when
they will appear to be "a spectacular, differently
colored double star," says Loudon.
Dope note
State Sen. Basil Brown (D-Highland Park) is
following the recent Washington fad of car trouble-
L trend that has all but spelled ,the demise for
Sen. Edward Kennedy and Rep. Wilbur Mills. But
Brown has added a new twist-pot. The 48-year-old
senator was, stopped Tuesday night for erratic
driving when Eaton County deputies found both
marijuana and hashish, in undisclosed amounts,
in Brown's car. Brown's arraignment in Charlotte
yesterday kept him from the opening session of
,he new legislature. But that's not his only goof:
the senate dean, who has 18 years' seniority,
already has a pending court case for driving
under the influence of alcohol.

Press officer Robert Anderson acknowledged that the govern-

TrHE ADMINISTRATION has been quietly preparing the way
to introduce a $300 million supplemental request to Congress to
restore cuts made in military assistanc.e to South Vietnam ap-
proved last month.
The figure represents the difference between the $1 billion
authorized for military aid to the Saigon government and the
$700 million which was finally ---
appropriated for this purpose.

this academic year because
worsening economic conditions
have led to an unexpectedly
