some strange happening at the Schoch and Ostafin met with
University lately. People seem considerable vocal opposition

numbers were.
Following last night's meet-
ing, UHC President Dan Ber-
land expressed confidence that
he "can get the support" nec-
essary to persuade the Housing
Office to abandon their master

He added, "I feel we got an

ROSE WOULD not "specu-
late on the chances of obtain-
ing the injunctions, as it might
influence the judges involved."
Meanwhile, many students
and parents have begun to call
and write Regents, protesting
what they term 't'he unfair-
ness" of the lottery system.
Thomas Roach (D-Grosse
Pointe) has already received
"half a dozen calls - mostly
from residents or parents of
students in Newbury."
ROACH SEES two key ques-
tions that must be answered
before any definite action can
be taken by the Regents: "Will

there be an increase in dema
next year," and, "What is
accurate forecast in next fa
enrollment."
Roach said that there is

"But it is all a very, v

not speculate on next year's
budget situation.
Jim Weinstein, a s t u d e n t
m e m b e r of the University
Budget Priorities Committee,
claimed that the University will
increase tuition fees if there is
a further budget cut. An in-
crease of "somewhere around
five to ten per cent is my
guess," Weinstein said.
He contended that there is
"an excess $44 million in the
budget of the University."
Weinstein agrees with other
Budget Priorities Committee
members that "a lot of the
money is tied up; however there
is some amount that could be
used. We are in dire straits now
and students just can't afford

students dig into their own sav-
ings accounts but they won't
dip into their own."
Despite the proposed foir per
cent budget cut, the University
appropriations for the 197-76
academic year include money
ear-marked exculsively for a 5.6
per cent faculty salary increase
and to off-set other inflationary
costs, Fleming said.
"THE REAL essence of what
is happening," Fleming added,
"is self-financing." He explained
that Rhodes has already asked
various University departments
"to find a way to cut their
budgets by four per cent."
All additional monies the ITni-
versity receives will cover only
the effects of inflation and will
not be used to provide expanded
services, Fleming said.
