existing programs┬░."
In addition to the $4 billion for
existing aid programs, Carter set
aside $700 million in his fiscal 1979
budget as an "allowance for contin-
gencies." Powell said this money
would be used for the President's
new program.
Powell also indicated more than
the $700 million might be included.
Referring to the "contingency"
funds, he declared, "I don't know if

they cover every penny of the
program at this point."
D E M O C R A T I C congression-
al leaders, who learned about the
upcoming announcement during
breakfast with Carter at the White
House, told reporters the program
would be substantial.
Rep. John Brademas of Indiana,
the Democratic whip, called the
President's proposal "a major stu-
dent national assistance program."
House Speaker Thomas O'Neill

said it would be. a new financial as-
sistance program that "hits the
middle-income group of Americans."
He said other programs have been
aimed at the poor or the wealthy.
A bill by Sen. William Roth
(R-Del.), to give $250 tax credits has

American Council on Education esti-
mates that one-third of those benefits
would go to families with income
above $25,000.

defensive will not substantiate Western
expectations that the Soviets would suf-
fer a diplomatic defeat,' Vlcko said.
"In fact, in Belgrade, the Soviet
Union have become the accusers, pro-
testing Western infringements of
human rights and their attempts to
spread bourgeoisie ideas over Eastern
Europe," said Vlcko.
HE DID, however, mention several
advantages that could possibly be
gained at Belgrade.
"If nothing else is achieved, at least
the real culprit, the Soviet Union and its
flagrant violations will be exposed.
Also, it will show that if the Soviets
can't comply to the Helsinki
Agreement, then their word in any in-
ternational treaty is no good," Vlcko
said.
Vlcko strongly asserted the Western
nations were extremely hopeful of
Russian compliance in the Helsinki
Agreement but their hopes were im-
mediately dashed.
"EVEN THOUGH history showed the
Russian's reluctance to abide by inter-
natioiial agreements, the Western
nations still hurried to the conference
tables in Helsinki to achieve an
agreement," said Vlcko.
Vlcko said the optimism generated

before Helsinki looks like a "false hope
of the Western nations."
"The Soviet Union only desired its
territorial acquisitions from World War
II to be officially ratified and the issue
of human rights only to be informally
discussed. Those were its aims in
Helsinki," said Vlcko.
VLCKO ALSO referred to the 1948
Universal United Nations Declaration
of Human Rights as another document
signed by the Soviet Union and violated
by them.
"The Soviet Union considered it a
paper which has no teeth and carries no
sword. Its principles were disregardIed
as having never been written," he said.
Vlcko then explained how the Soviet
Union itself and through its domination
of East Europen countries has violated
the rights advocated by the
Declaration.
"For example," he began, "the
Human Rights Declaration states the
individual's right to emigrate.
However, in Czechoslovakia, there are
barbed wire fences and security guar-
ds. Attempted escape could mean death
or imprisonment in labor camps."
In other symposium developments,
an AKTSIA spokesman announced the
Radio Free Europe branch in
Washington called and asked for tape
recordings of various lectures already
delivered This week. The spokespersons
said the tapes were relayed to
Washington over the phone and will be
broadcast in Europe tomorrow mor-
ning.

force."
THOUGH THE University ranks high
in room and board rates among Big Ten
schools, Robert Hughes, acting housing
director, said "we're pretty far down
the line when compared to our sister in-
stitutions."
He said schools that are more
academically on par with theUniver-t
sity than those in the Big Ten generally
have higher room and board rates.
Rates for schools such as Columbia,
Harvard, Pennsylvania and Cornell, for
example, average more than $2,000.
Hughes admitted, however, that most
"sister institutions," unlike the Univer-
sity, are private schools. The Big Ten
schools-primarily state-
controlled-face expenses similar to
those at the University.
"I can't say we're perfectly efficient
or provide the nearest thing to the
Lord's menu," Snustad said. "But we
are self-critical and always look for
cost-cutting alternatives."
