THESE KITTENS, along with many other stray animals, await adoption at the local humane society. If no home is
found for them, they will be destroyed to make room for other abandoned pets.

The University Board of Regents voted
unanimously yesterday to raise tuition
for the 74-75 academic year nearly six
per cent above the Winter '74 figures,
placing the tuition at the sane levels as
fall 1973.
Tuition was lowered last Winter when
a $3.75 million surplus was discovered
in the lall '73 budget.
UNDER THE NEW hiher rates, in-
state freshmen and sophomores will pay
$400 per semester, compared with $383
at present, while in stite juniors and
seniors will pay $50.
(outofstate fresheninod splimttres
will be charged $13K) per Semester and
out-of state juniors and se:ors will pay
$1401).
The bud eprt apruivel vest,rdiy totaled
over t158.2 million in appr ti ittions for
the Ann Arbor campus, an increase of
nine per cent over this year. The budget
also includes an eight per cent:raise
slated for salary bikes for alt Univer-
sity personnel
IN ANOTHER controversial decisin,
the Regents passed 7-1 a compromise
proposal on guidelines on the use of Uni-
versity facilities for fund-raising. Regent
Gerald Dunn (D-Saranac) voted in op-
position.
The compromise reg-lations, proposed
by Regents Lawrence Lindemer (R-
Stockbridge) and James Waters (D-
Muskegon), require all groups who use
University facilities to "have sufficient
funds on deposit with the University Of-
fice of the Controller to meet all its ob-
ligations in connection with use."
If any such groups decide to withdraw
deposited funds, the University "shall
deprive said organizations of eligibility
for facility use for events for a period
of one year."
FURTHERMORE, all such organiza-
tions must certify that the funds won't
be misused. The regulations are spe-
cifically aimed at preventing the use of
revenues for political purposes or for
profit-making.
University officials say they're obli-
gated to ascertain that these groups ful-
fill the obligations of the University's
tax-exempt status."
The guidelines also provide that "fail-
ure to comply with the regulations will
result in the denial of the use of the fa-
cilities to such groups as determined by
a board made tin of two students, two

Not all people who lose their pets nec-
essarily want them back. One woman
called last week by the Humane Society
and informed that it would cost her $4.00
to get her dog back responded, "well,
kill the damn thing then."
In the United States alone, there are
10,000- puppies and kittens born every
hour. These enchanting little balls of
fur continue to swell the homeless ani-
mal population - which currently stands

at 40,000,000. The Humane Societies
throughout the country are literally
swamped with these homeless and un-
wanted animals.
TAXPAYE4,S and private organiza-
tions are paying more than $65,00,000 a
year on rescue and control work but are
unable to help but a fraction of the
homeless animals.
The Humane Society was set up orig-
inally as an organization for the preven-

tion of cruelty to animals and children.
The Huron Valley Humane Society,
which is one of the oldest in the country
was formed in 1896. Until 1935 it dealt
mainly with the investigation into cruel-
ty cases and educational programs.
In 1935, J. J. Goodyear left his farm
to the Humane Society, which was the
first animal shelter until 1951. Then,
Fred Matthai left $100,000 to the society
and the shelter was enlarged to double-
its capacity.
LEE KVARNBERG, manager of the
Huron Valley Chapter says "the worst
cruelty is that we can't do anything
legally in many cases to prevent cruel-
He says that the major problem is the
lack of concern for the birth and -welfare
of animals.
"We are basically a malign institution
because we kill animals," says Kvarn-
berg. He asserts however,. that the ani-
mals are killed out of necessity rather
than desire.
"WE HAVE ROOM for 300 animals
here and we are usually filled." Each
time a new animal comes in it must
have a cage so another animal must be
killed.
Often, he says, people will drop ani-
mals over the fence and will be found,
in the morning by staff members. Oc-
casionally, whole litters of puppies ace
dropped over the fence during the night.
Dogs that are picked up by the dog
catcher are brought to the Humane So-
ciety. Then, their owners are called and

Only one Washtenaw County Commis-
sioner district is the scene of political
campaigning for the August 6th Demo-
cratic Party primary yet even this race,
would at best be called slow.
David Copi faces Catherine McClary in
the 15th District, the sole primary con-
test. However McClary has been out of
town for most of the summer and Copi
has offered fairly inactive opposition.
LITTLE DIFFERENCE exists between
the hopefuls with both favoring the build-
ing of a new jail, establishment of a
county-wide system of bike paths, and
improvement of area health care facili-
ties.
McClary, a summer intern for Con.
gresswoman Bella Abzug (D-New York)
charges that the county's present jail is

"unfit for human habitation." She em-
phasizes the need for prisoner rehabili-
tation programs.
Copi, an attorney says he wants "a
larger jail so we don't have to build
another one in the next 10 years." He
also stresses the need for more money
for low-income family health care.
Copi's decision to enter the race was
challenged by current 15th District Com-
missioner Elizabeth Taylor who defined
Copi's previous job as "harrassing ab-
sent fathers of welfare recipients."
Copi resigned a position with Friends
of the Court on July 5th where his sal-
ary partially came from a federal grant.
Taylor had contended Copi was in viola-
tion of the federal Hatch Act which pro-
hibits federal employes from running
in partisan elections.
