Carter plan may hike 'U' student aid $5.5 million
By RON DeKETT
The University could have its student
financial aid funds increased by more
than half the present $9.97 million
amount if President Carter's proposed
$1.2 billion student financial aid subsidy
' meets U.S. House and Senate approval,
' according to Harvey Grotrian,
associate director of student financial
The Carter proposal could possibly
give the University an additional $5.52
million in financial aid monies,
x Grotrian said.
THIS MEANS between 5,000 and 8,000
students currently not receiving any
form of financial assistance because
their family income is too high would be
eligible for some form of fiscal aid.

Eligible students often receive more
than one award.

WASHINGTON (AP) - To ensure
that snow tires provide the maximum
margin of safety, the Tire Retread In-
formation Bureau (TRIB) has recom-
mended some tips for winter tire care:
Snow tires should carry the same in-
flation pressure as conventional tires.
For every 10-degree drop in tem-
perature, a tire may lose a pound of air
pressure. Underinflated tires can cause
erratic steering, excessive wear and
make an engine use more gas, advises

figure is high because Carter's proposal
raises the family income ceiling from
$16,000 to $25,000 and entitles the
student whose parents earn less than
the $25,000 ceiling to an automatic grant
According to Grotrian, the automatic
grant is unique in the philosophy of
financial aid because, "It is the first
departure from the sole-need concept."
UNDER THE sole-need concept, the
student must demonstrate financial
need before a grant is awarded.
In addition, the grant portion would
make substantially more money avail-
able to low-income families. In a press
release issued last week, Grotrian said,
"Parents with an annual income of
$12,000 and two children, one in college,
would be eligible this year for $716 un-
der the Basic Educational Opportunity
Grants program. If the President's plan
is passed, they would be eligible for
Between $70 and $90 million in finan-
cial aid monies would be channelled
through Guaranteed Student Loans.
The family income ceiling would be
raised from $25,000 to $40,000, making
96 per cent of the families in the U.S.
eligible for government subsidized
GROTRIAN ALSO said there is an ef-
fort to eliminate the ceiling limit from
Carter's proposal in the case of guaran-
teed loans. The elimination of the
ceiling would make only four per cent
more families in the U.S. eligible for the
loans, and as paper work to determine
need would be reduced, the time bet-
ween application and receipt of a loan
would most likely be shortened.
Under the plan the Work-Study
Program would receive approximately
$150 million and create jobs for 280,000
more students throughout the nation.
Reaction to the proposal has been
mixed. The Michigan Student Financial
Aid Association (MSFAS), made up of
financial aid officers.from the state's
universities and colleges, which held its
winter session in Southfield last week,
could not reach a consensus over Car-
"SOME MEMBERS of the financial
aid community strongly endorse the
proposal, others take a more conser-
vative view," Grotrian said. Grotrian is
the president of MSFAS.
MSFAS will conduct hearings in East
Lansing beginning March 9th before it
determines its position.
However, the National Association of
Student Financial Aid Administrators
has gone on record supporting the
In the press release following the
MSFAS meeting, Grotrian said, "What
we find most encouraging is that-the
President's proposal represents an in-
crease over the $3.8 billion already
recommended, with the new money
going largely to students who, because
of the current income restrictions, have
been almost entirely out of the grant,
loans and work-study programs."

Supreme Court e nies appeal
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Supreme
Court, denying an appeal from Ken-
tucky, said in effect yesterday that the
federal government does not have to
help pay the costs of court-ordered
busing to achieve racially desegregated
The justices rejected without com-
ment an appeal by Kentucky Gov.
Julian Carroll seeking permission to
ask for federal help in paying for busing
in the Louisville area, one of hundreds
of school districts across the nation
carrying out court-ordered busing.
THE COURT'S action bars, at least
for now, any hope other state and local
school districts may have had to get
such federal help.
A racial desegregation plan in effect
since 1975 for schools in Louisville and
surrounding Jefferson County, Ky., has
made necessary the daily busing of
some 23,000 students.
"The drain on state and local funds . .
ilfunding of busing
. is quite real and devastating," In other matters the court:
Carroll's appeal said.
THE GOVERNOR had challenged
the constitutionality of three federal
laws prohibiting federal funding of
busing for desegregation. A federal
judge in Louisville and a federal ap-
peals court already had upheld the
In urging the court to turn down Ken-
tucky's argument, the Carter ad-
ministration argued that the federal
government is under no obligation to
help defray desegregation costs.
"Indeed, states may well be less
likely to violate a citizen's rights today
if it means paying the costs of making
good those rights in the future," the
Justice Department told the court.
"THE UNITED States did not violate
the constitutional rights of the children
in Jefferson County; the county and the
state did," government lawyers said.
