A new one-year residence requirement for in-state University tuition
status was approved yesterday by the Board of Regents in a special tele-
phone vote.

The new rules, effective imme-
diately, are designed to replace the
six-month, three credit hour limit
for residency establishment struck
down last month by Judge William
BASED ON requirements adopted by the
University of Minnesota and subsequently
upheld by the U. S. Supreme Court, the
approved rules set a one-year continuous
residence standard for in-state status.
Students applying for in-state tuition
rates will also be required to show that
they have established a Michigan domi-
cile, meaning they intend to make the
state a permanent home even after grad-
uation from the University.
Conditions considered to have "proba-
tive value"' in support of a request for
resident status according to the new re-
quirements include:
-Continuous presence in the state dur-
ing periods when not enrolled as a stu-
dent or reliance upon Michigan sources
for financial support,
-Domicile in the state of family, guar-
dian or other persons legally responsible
for the student,
-Former domicile in the state, and the
maintenance of contacts in Michigan while
-Ownership of a home in Michigan or
admission to a "licensed practicing pro-
fession" in the state, and,
Commitments to further education in
Michigan, indicating an intent to stay
here permanently, or acceptance of a per-
manent employment offer in the state.
THE REGULATIONS also list conditions
which will not be considered to prove resi-
dency, including local voter registration,
local automobile registration, and "a
statement of intention to acquire a domi-
cile in Michigan."
Although the Regents have not yet voted
the tuition increaseUniversity officials
predict will accompany. the new rule, out-
of-state students may establish in-state
status for summer term. -

Applications for changed tuition status
must be submitted to the Assistant Regis-
trar for Student Certification and Resi-
dence Status within 20 days of the begin-
ning of the term for which the fee adjust-
ment is requested.
"THERE IS no real way of determining
whether the new rule will be more or
less expensive to the University in terms
of decreased tuition revenues than the
old rule," University attorney Roderick
I)aane said yesterday.
However, Daane stated the University

Ypsilanti's Carolyn King will get her day in court.

Carolyn fights League
in court and Congress

Little League outfielder Carolyn King
made the big time this week, as her
struggle to establish girls on the Little
League playing field traveled to federal
court and then to Congress.
Carolyn trooped down to her lawyer's
office with her dad on Tuesday and filed
suit along with the City of Ypsilanti and
her own Ypsi Little League chapter against
Little League of America, the national
AND ON THURSDAY Congresswoman
Martha Griffiths of Detroit, a chief spon-
sor of the Equal Rights Amendment, back-
ed Carolyn up, introducing legislation
which would require the national associa-
tion to let girls in the League.
"We're suing them for my right to play
-for girls' everywhere right to play,"
Carolyn said confidently.

Back in May the Ypsi chapter - with
a little pressure from the Ypsi city coun-
cil - refused to heed warnings from na-
tional headquarters and allowed Carolyn
to play on one of their local teams, the
HEADQUARTERS didn't take kindly to
that act of defiance and countered by tak-
ing away the chapter's Little League
So there it stood. Ypsi players were
out the badges on their uniforms and the
opportunity to hold an all-star game or
compete in the Little League tournament
play-offs all because they had a girl in
their league.
In her complaint filed with the Federal
District Court iq Detroit, Carolyn charged
sex discrimination and asked for an in-
junction which would allow her and her

teammates to participate in these end-of-
;eason tournaments.
LITTLE LEAGUE of America spokes-
man Robert Stirrat refused to comment on
Carolyn's suit b e f o r e Thursday's court
With a slight giggle but no hesitation
Carolyn asserted in an interview that the
boys on the team were not angry with her.
Concerning the month and a half of
publicity which has accompanied her dis-
pute with the League, though, Carolyn
said, "I'm getting tired of it; really
I am."
THEN SHE admitted she didn't know
much about the lawsuit and deferred to
her mother for further comment.
