State OK's tuition grants

Divestiture question
to. be on MSA ballot

The State Legislature has approved a
bill that will provide $6 million in tuition
grants to students attending private
colleges and universities in the state.
The bill comes outside of the
legislature's annual appropriations for
higher education and provides $500 in
tuition aid to eveity full-time Michigan
freshman in an approved private
college this fall. The grants will be ad-
ded to other classes each year until all
four college years are included. 12,398
students are expected to benefit from
the aid in the next school year.

State Relations Richard Kennedy said
there is "no way of determining"
whether the $6 million will detract from
money which would have been ap-
propriated to the University and other
public schools. But, he did say the bill
"constitutes an additional drayn on
scarce state dollars and in that sense it
is competing with state education.
"It's one more drain on state resour-
ces that tends to work against higher
public education in the same way it
drains from the mental health or other

Fleming and Kennedy too questioned
the spending, when, as Kennedy said,
"By their own admission the Governor
and the legislature are short of
adequate funds to do the things they're
supposed to do."
"The troublesome fact," said
Fleming "is that the state says public
education is substantially underfunded
now. I don't know how they've related
this bill to that problem."
The state currently finances part of
higher private education by reimbur-

University students will have the
chance next week to vote on a non-
binding referendum on the University's
South African investment policy.
The question will be on the Michigan
Student Assembly ballot in its general
elections to be held April 10, 11 and 12.
The Assembly voted to put the
question on the ballot at the MSA
meeting last night. The resolution was
introduced on behalf of the Student
Alliance for Better Representation
THE QUESTION, which would serve
only as a measure of student opinion,
reads: "Shall the students of the
University of Michigan oppose any
financial ties between the University of
Michigan and the apartheid policies of.
South Africa and insist that the Regents
follow the example of the University of
Wisconsin and Michigan State Univer-
sity by withdrawing investments of the
University of Michigan from cor-
porations conducting business in South
Last month the University Regents
did not vote for University divestiture

in firms dealing with South Africa as
many had hoped, but rather adopted a
resolution shaping University policy.
The resolution called for the University
to urge corporations to adopt the anti-
discriminatory Sullivan principles in
their South African operations. The
resolution also ordered the University
to assume responsibility for votes at
corporation shareholder meetings.
The only opposition to the plan came
from MSA vice-president for personnel
and presidential candidate Irving
"I'm afraid if we put this on the ballot
it could backfire on us," said Freeman.
He expressed concern that the outcome
of the vote could be against divestiture.

voted in favor of the recruitment.

from the CIA," said MSA member G. J.
DiGiuseppe. "The CIA thing came at a
time when students were desperate for

* Tuition and fees are the items
which vary most from school to school.
At private, four-year colleges, tuition
and fees for the upcoming academic
year will average $2,647; at public,
four-year schools, the average is $651

out-of-state students.
" Dollar amounts for items other
than tuition and fees are fairly similar
from one college to another. As an
average, the College Board says
students should plan on budgeting $245
for transportation-including trips
home during the year.
