Big ge.
Despite massive tuition hikes, a total of 43,160 stu-
dents are enrolled at the big 'U' this fall; 1,981 more
than last year. This figure includes all three campuses
with the largest jump coming at U-M Dearborn. Our
own campus currently has 35,14 students, which is 529
more than we had a year ago. Commenting on the
growth Vice-President for Academic Affairs Allan Smith
said, "We are pleased that our anticipation has been
realized. We also take pleasure at the continuing growth
at our two regional campuses."
Late billing
Nope, it's not the tuition strike that's been causing
the late delivery of tuition bills and the setback of the
first payment deadline. According to Student Accounts
Supervisor William Randall, you can blame the calendar,
not the University. Because the first three days of the
month fell on a weekend and Labor Day, it seems that
the office was delayed in assessing football ticket fees.
The delay, an annual event in the office, kept student
accounts a full two days behind all month with their
assessments: With the last working day falling on Sept.
28, the University decided to move the deadline to Oct. 2.
As for any late bill arrivals, the Student Accounts Office
claims all bills were in the mail by Sept. 21. Chalk an-
other one up to the postal system, and, in terms of the
tuition strike, hang in there folks
Beat the heat
A recently constructed house on North Campus has no
electricity, no running water, no toilet facilities yet it
contains an air conditioner. The air conditioner is no
ordinary one, however, for the house is constructed in
such a way as to allow the sun and wind to do all the
heating and cooling necessary. According to Edward
Kelly, the student director of the project, the system
represents 'a possible alternative to man's over-con-
sumption of gas, oil and other non-renewable energy
Nice place to visit
It had to happen-first the dorms, and then the coun-
try's first coeducational prison. But some state legisla-
tors claim that a little too much has been happening in
the Framington, Mass., reformatory. They claim there
have been "sexual orgies, wild parties and nude bath-
ing" among the incarcerated nen and women. Others
claim that the prison has become a "country club."
Massachusetts Gov. Francis Sargent toured the building
and pronounced the decorum something akin to that of
a girls' finishing school. Skeptics, however, reportedly
snickered, "What do you expect he would see? They
knew he was coming ...'

quizzes iTeming on,
Heated exchanges characterize confrontation



Universzity P r e s i d e n t Robben
Fleming yesterday told a tuition
hike forum that University officials
now expect to find the recent fee
increase will generate more than
the revenues needed to cover loss-
es incurred by adoption of the new
residency requirements.
However, Fleming refused to tell
the nearly 100 persons attending
what the University will do if such
an excess in revenues appears.
HE CLAIMED that if he prom-
ised a partial tuition rebate, "you
would regard that as a commit-
ment which I don't know if we can
keep until we see what all the fac-
tors are."

Estimates that the University
would lose S2.5 million in fee rev-
enue due to students obtaining in-
state status under the new rules
was based on an expected reclassi-
fication of approximately 1,000
graduate studen:s and 400 under-
graduates, Fleming explained.
However ,he said, only 1.600 stu-
dents have applied for reclassifi-
cation :his term, many fewer than
officials had predicted.
IN ADDITION, an expected fall-
off in enrollment due to the new
fees has failed to materialize, sig-

naling a rise in total fee income
regardless of loss due to reclassi-
fication, Fleming said.
This increase "may be a one
year phenomenon that we've got
to watch," he warned.
Fleming said repeatedly that a
statement on what will be done
with excess revenues will not be
made by University officials until
ONE POSSIBLE use of the extra
fends, he suggested, would be to
finance a campus recreational pro-
gram recently approved by the Re-

gents to be funded by a fee as

SAC spokesman Terry marn2r
and Daily reporter Dan 3id
challenged Fleming with regard to
the tuition hike's effect on tow-
middle and low-income students.
"If the University is really truly
not involved in pushing for those
same interests, then we ask them
to join with us in a general strike
until we get those funds," said

UAW hits
Ford for
delays in
auto talks
DETROIT (UPI) - The United
Auto Workers (UAW) said yester-
day that the Ford Motor Co. risks
a nationwide strike starting Oct.
22 if it does not abandon its "hard
nosed stand on everything."
The union set the Oct. 22 strike
deadline Thursday. It was the first
disclosure that the UAW had set
a negotiating timetable with the
second largest U. S. automaker.
LINGERING problems between
the UAW and Chrysler Corp. have
slowed the Ford talks, but the two
sides are continuing to bargain on
the terms of a new three-year con-
tract to cover 185,000 blue collar
Ford workers.
"Ford is being hard nosed on
everything." said UAW Vice Pres-
ident Ken Bannon, who heads the
union negotiating team at Ford.
"If Ford keeps on the table the
material they now have, there will
be a strike."
Under existing procedure, the
UAW would set Oct. 19 as the
deadline for a contract settlement
with Ford and if no settlement is
reached by that date, it would give
the three-day strike notice.
BANNON SAID, however, that
the final strike date decision - if
necessary - would come only af-
-ter the UAW resolves all its dif-
ferences with Chrysler.
The union said it wants Ford to
go even farther than Chrysler in
such issues as voluntary overtime,
extra holidays, medical and safety
benefits and retirement programs.
When Chrysler and the UAW
reached tentative agreement,
however, Union President Leonard
Woodcock said he considered their
contract a pattern for the entire
U. S. and Canadian auto industry.
BUT AT THAT time he also in-
dicated that the union "would ac-
cept nothing less" in bargaining
with Ford and subsequently Gen-
eral Motors.

Justice Dept. claims
VP lacks immunity
WASHINGTON T- Lawyers for Vice President Spiro
Agnew subpoenaed a number of newspeople yesterday in an
attempt to make them reveal the source of news leaks about
the Agnew investigation.
An unconfirmed report indicated that a subpoena was
also served on the Justice Department, ordering appearance
for deposition-taking next week. The department had no

did release a statement arguing
that the Vice President cannot seek
constitutional protection from in-
dictment and prosecution.
The statement suggested that if
Agnew is indicted by a grand jury
investigating possible violations of
extortion, conspiracy, bribery and
tax laws, trial could be delayed at
Agnew's request to allow Congres-
sional consideration of the im-
peachment proceedings.
Reporters from The New York
Times, New York Daily News,
Washington Post, Washington Star-
News, CBS. Time and Newsweek
magazines were ordered to appear
in federal court in Baltimore next
week with their notes of conver-
sations with official sources.
organizations said they will vigor-
ously oppose the action taken by
Agnew's attorneys. "We will op-
pose this step in the courts with
all the resources at our com-
mand," a New York Times spokes-
person declared.
U.S. District Court Judge Wal-
ter Hoffman, specially assigned to
handle the Agnew probe, has given
Agnew's lawyers authority to is-
sue the subpoenas. Depositions are
to be sealed and not to be made
part of any public file, under Hoff-
man's order.
Agnew has denounced news leaks
about the investigation, which in-
cludes allegations of kickbacks,
and singled out Astt. Atty. Gen.
Henry Petersen as the source of
damaging leaks.
PETERSEN AND the Justice
Department have denied the Vice
President's charges. President
Nixon defended Petersen, saying
"if I did not approve Mr. Peter-
sen's handling of the investigation
he would be removed at this time."
Prior to authorizing subpoena
power for Agnew's lawyers, Judge
Hoffman called in the grand jury
hearing evidence in the Agnew
case and warned the jurors to dis-
regard news stories involving the
inquiry because they "frequently
are wholly or partially inaccur-

As the name of the party indi-
cates, one of the campus' newest
political parties - Screw SGC

dents into realizing how their stu-

corruption," according to party
founder Matt Hoffman.
Like most of the student politi-
cal parties, SSGC aims to make

est" if they win in the all-campus
elections scheduled for Oct. 9
through Oct. 11.
UNLIKE MOST of the student
political parties, SSGC concedes
that theyshave virtually no chance
for success.
In defense ofhs party's lowx-key



effort, Hoffman says, "If it really
was going to be a fair election, we
could devote more time and energy
to run a vigorous campaign."
He says he fears "subversive"
elements on SGC will throw the

er Jim Hudler, claims discussion
of proposals is irrelevant.
"We can't talk about our party's
proposals until we clean up all the
shit lying around SGC."
Nevertheless, SSGC has definite-
ly taken some controversial stands:
they oppose the tuition strike and
want to come down hard on cam-
pus crime.

particularly irked by a Sept. 22
television report by CBS' Fred
Graham in which the reporter
said: "Petersen was quoted as
saying "We've got the evidence;
we've got it cold."
The Vice President wrote the

Mr. Graham.
"The fact remains that four
newspapers of considerable circu-

remark . . . The Justice Depart-
