and associate professor of social work at Bishop College
in Dallas, Tex., has been named director of the Coalition
for the Use of Learning Skills here at the University.

duties as director of the counseling service.
State of the Cosmos
October will bring shorter days, the Hunter's Moon,
and, two meteor showers, says University astronomer
Hazel M. "Doc" Losh in her monthly "State of the
Cosmos" message. Of special interest should be the two
meteor showers, the Draconids beginning on the 9th and
the Orionids beginning the 22nd. Overall "Doc", Losh
predicts that October skies should be among the year's
Elephant' s requiem
The Daily's Cincinnati Bureau, ably staffed by Jona-
than and Terry Miller, files the following tearful report:
Tyler the Elephant's circus career has ended in a blaze
of gunfire. The 16-year old, three-ton Indian elephant,
valued at $30,000, signed her own death warrant when she
attacked her trainer between shows of the Ringling Bros.-
Barnum and Bailey circus Sunday night. The trainer
suffered a broken leg and police were called in to deal
with Tyler. "She got out of control," a -circus spokesman
said. Police sharpshooter Donald Ritter did the deed with
two shots into Tyler's skull from a highpowered rifle. The
deceased beast, who performed in 2300 shows, was loaded
into a dumptruck by two cranes and shipped to a 16 by
35-foot final resting place at a suburban Cincinnati land-
fill site.

Segretti pleads guilty
Political saboteur Donald Segretti pleaded guilty yes-
terday to violating federal election laws during last
year's Democratic presidential primary in Florida. Se-
gretti's guilty plea was to three charges, including con-
spiracy and distributing political literature which did not
identify the persons responsible for it.
High Court convenes
The Supreme Court has begun its 1973 term, but the
five-minute opening ceremony gave no hint of the critical
constitutional questions awaiting the justices. During
the court's three-month recess, the Watergate scandal
has produced questions about President Nixon's White
House tape recordings of Watergate related conversa-
tions. Oral arguments in the cases already selected for
the court begin next week.
Petersen defended
The White House claims Atty. Gen. Elliot Richardson
has assured President Nixon that Justice Department
official Henry Petersen was not the source of a con-
troversial news leak on the investigation of Vice President
Spiro Agnew. The Veep, in a speech Saturday, accused
Petersen of being out to get him.

nat, including repre-
several student or-
as been tentatively,
accounting appeared

to raise as many questions as it
answered. While citing some fig-
ures mentioned in earlier state-
ments from University officials, the
president introduced "the addition-
al problem" of a $1.4 million "con-
tingent liability" ordered by Cir-
cuit Judge William Ager in last
April's ruling against the Univer-
sity's residency regulations. The
$1.4 million would cover retroac-
tive tuition payments for 1972-73,'
as ordered by Ager.
Ager's decision invalidated the

six-month non-enrollment rule for
out-of-state students seeking resi-
dency and lower in-state fees; the
judge further ordered the Univer-
sity to refund the difference be-
tween resident and nonresident fees
to those out-of-state students who
would have qualified for residency

six-month rule.
firmed Ager's ruling in June; the
University is appealing the retroac-

tive rebate order.
The $1.4 million figure was never
previously mentioned in any of the
several explanations offered by of-
ficials since the fee hike was ap-
proved more than two months ago.
While Fleming's report offered
no comment on the previous ab-
sence of a "contingent liability",
one University official suggested
yesterday that the figure had gen-
erally been excluded to limit the
number of students who would ac-
tively seek tuition rebates stem-

ming from the Ager decision.
THE REST of Fleming's mathe-
matical explanation follows the
same argument offered last week
by Chief Financial Officer Wilbur
Pierpont. Pierpont, however, claim-
ed the increase has a "weighted
average" of 20 per cent rather than
24; the figure affirmed by the Of-
fice of Financial Analysis. Flem-
ing appeared to sidestep that dis-
pute as neither figure was used
anywhere in his accounting.
Fleming contended that the fee
hike is needed to cover the follow-
ing budget needs:

President Robben Fleming de-
livered his tenth annual "State of
the University" speech last night
to an audience of about 250 faculty
members, their wives and families,
and a handful of students gathered
in the rust colored Rackham Aud.
The speech, while not directly
touching on the recent tuition hike
controversy, did coveruthe broader
issues of financing public educa-
tion as well as the general goals
of higher education.
FOLLOWING AN introduction by
Senate Assembly Chairman Fred-
rick Goodman which described
Fleming as'"a surfer taking on the
big waves of social reform," the
president delivered a 45-minute
speech composed largely of gen-
He spoke broadly of the probable
and justified increase in widening
of the proportions paid by the in-
diiduals and the society for public
"We still agree upon a division
(of cost), but our ideas of what
constitute a suitable proportion for
each are changing," Fleming said,
not mentioning current tuition d.s-
putes directly.
HE CITED yesterday's New York
Times story which advised that
students may be expected in the
future to carry from one-third to
one-half the direct institutional
costs incurred by the university.
He admitted that such an alloca-
tion to the student may cause "a
growing resentment on the part of
the lower middle class" toward
lower income students.
Despite recognizing the "formid-
able debt by graduation time"
faced by students in the future as
a "deterant to the educational pro-
cess," Fleming offered no solutions
or insights for solving the problem.
Watergate investigation, Fleming
spoke of the university's role in
imparting values to their students.
Calling it a "spectacle of ethical
standards gone berserk," he ob-
served that "many of the young
people who have testified to poli-
tical deceit, criminal behavior, and
unethical conduct are fully equip-
ped with degrees from distinguish-

approved several alterations in the
present Ward Boundary plan amid
long, often bitter debate and char-
ges of gerrymandering.
