Business as usual
The faculty seems to have no intention of allow-
ing students a greater voice in decision-making at
the 'U.' By a 36-14 vote, the faculty's Senate
Assembly blasted a report from the Commission
to Study Student Governance (CSSG) advocating
greater student participation at nearly every level
of the University. The faculty's report to the
Regents, who will vote on the CSSG proposal next
month, expressed "sympathy for the Commission's
aims, but added that "in matters of duty, function,
preparation, appointment, responsibility a n d
authority, faculty members and students occupy
very different roles."

Dentist drilled
A Detroit dentist says he is moving his practice
after an ungrateful patient-whose tooth he had
just extracted-robbed him at gunpoint. "I can't
go on like this anymore," says Dr. George Gantz,
the victim of five robberies in the past year. "Now
I'm going to have to move." Dr. Gantz has main-
tained an office on Detroit's west side for 28 years.
After he pulled a tooth late Monday, he told
police, the patient drew a revolver and announced
a holdup. He took cash, a small handgun, and a
gold watch from the dentist. He also robbed a,
janitor and a patient in the waiting room.

Shaggy dog story
It looked like a typical case of the tail wagging
the dog: Gen. Alexander Haig, who probably has
so much fruit salad on his chest that he can't
walk straight, bowed to the canine and legal
world yesterday. He said he will reimburse the
government for the expense of taking his dog
Duncan across Germany last October. The travels
Duncan, a beagle-dachsund mongrel, were ex-
posed recently by Rep. Les Aspin (D-Wisc.), who
demanded Haig pay the army for the trip's costs-
$46.92. Haig is willing. The enlisted man who
drove Duncan across Germany said he did it
under protest, and he says Duncan didn't like it
much either: "He was scared and howling most
of the way back."

peatedly refused to comment when asked if
any decision-or reversal--had already taken
place.
"The (LSA deanship) search committee's
instructions were to turn in several names,"
Fleming told The Daily, "all of which were
highly acceptable for the deanship."
WHEN ASKED if his remarks ran counter
to earlier University confirmation that the
decision had indeed been made, Fleming
said, "I can't always control what other peo-
ple say."
Edward Dougherty, assistant to Vice Pres-
ident for Academic Affairs Frank Rhodes,
had stated Monday that the Regents held
final authority in the deanship selection.
One of The Daily's sources reported that
the Regents had voted "right down the line"

-unanimously-for Cobb.
THE SOURCE told the Daily last night
that the Regents had discussed the Daily's
Sunday announcement of Cobb's selection at
a meeting in Lansing Monday night. Accord-
ing to the source, the Board was "irate"
that the choice had been reported before
official confirmation.
Since Saturday, when the Daily learned
that Cobb had been selected in a tighvly
closed Regents meeting, Fleming, Vice Pres-
ident Rhodes, and the Regents all refused
comment on the decision. But when asked
if they were denying reports of Cobb's selec-
tion they repeated, "No comment."
The administration appeared to be making
strong efforts to close off information leaks.
One source reported being told "not to talk"

by other officials.
Speculation continued to build in LSA yes-
terday as the administration entered its
fourth day of the information freeze. While
the faculty reaffirmed their strong support
for Acting Dean Billy Frye-one of the three
final candidates-several informed professors
yesterday termed Cobb's qualifications "out-
standing."
ONE RELIABLE official said the current
controversy on the appointment of a black
women dean hinged "more on positive sup-
port for Frye than on any negative feeiing
for Cobb." The source expressed con;;ern
that mounting speculation would "make it
difficult for Cobb to accept the position."
Several faculty members asserted their
commitment to back whomever the Regents
had chosen.

WASHINGTON (Reuter) - President Ford yesterday
accepted a direct challenge from opposition Democrats
by threatening to veto a gas rationing plan they want to
substitute for his own energy saving program.
The President also announced at a televised press
conference that he would go ahead this week and impose
an increased import fee on foreign oil, defying a congres-
sional move to tie his hands.
HE PREDICTED that if Congress passed his programs, the
American people-would find the economy turning around by late
summer.
In yet another challenge to his opponents, Ford said he would
ask Congress soon to approve another $300 million in military aid

'U' POLICIES CRITICIZED:

Panel
By CHERYL PILATE
A nine-member committee has
recommended that the Univer-
sity not hike tuition in the near
future. The panel has also cri-
ticized the present fee schedule
for discriminating against part-
time students.
The Committee on Fee Struc-
ture, convened by President
Robben Fleming in September
1973, released a lengthy report
last week critically reviewing
the University's present tuition
policies.
IN ADDITION to recommend-

seeks
ing that the University curb fee
hikes whenever possible and
establish more equitable rates
for part-time students, the com-
mittee also spoke out against
further increases in the ratio of
non-resident to resident fees.
If the report's recommenda-
tions are adopted, it could mean
a significant decrease in Uni-
versity revenue. But adminis-
tration officials, who are pres-
ently grappling with a likely
four per cent budget slash in
state appropriations, insist they
will study the 40-page document
carefully during the next month.

tuition
Although altering the present
tuition schedule could prove
costly, according to Chief Fi-
nancial Officer Wilbur Pierpont,
the report will receive "careful
consideration."
"THE FINANCIAL picture
right now looks pretty rough,"
commented Pierpont. "And al-
though we can't make any real
decisions until the state appro-
priations come through, the re-
port is well worth studying."
One of the major inadequacies
in the University's present tui-
tion schedule, according to the
committee, is the rate charged

limit
part-time students. This amount
includes a hefty enrollment fee
in addition to paying for each
credit hour selected.
"Although it was probably not
designed to do so, the effect of
this policy has been to discour-
age the attendance of part-time
students," states the report. Not
only must these students pay
substantially more for their de-
grees, but they are often inelig-
ible for most forms of financial
aid because of their part-time
status."
A MORE equitable system,
according to the committee,
would be to abolish the $50 en-
rollment fee ($150 for non-resi-
dents) and to institute a straight
per - credit - hour charge for all
students-although retaining the
present differentials by class
year and program.
"We tried to put across a
certain philosophy in this re-
port," said committee member
Jean Campbell, the director of
the Center for the Continuing
Education of Women. "The ma-
jor thrust of it is a rejection of
high rates - tuition should be
kent as low as possible."
