PIRGIM's in the money!
By JIM O'BRIEN
The collection of student mem-
bership fees for the Public In-
terest Research Group in Mich-
igan (PIRGIM) during early re-
gistration was quite successful,
according to Mike Peisner, '75.
the group's state chairman.
Students who wished to join
PIRGIM and donate $1.50 for
the fall term turned i' - com-
puter card during pre-registra-
tion; those who didn't kept the
Peisner said that approximate-
ly 55 per cent of the students
at pre-registration for the fall
term, representing about $12400
in membership fees, joined PIR-
GIM. He emphasized, however,
that less than half of the stu-
dent body pre-registered, with
freshmen, graduate, and trans-
fer students still to be contact-
ed in the fall.
University reaction to t h e
membership drive in the pre-
registration process was "very
favorable," according to J o h n
Stewart, University director of
registration. He objected to an
earlier proposal to make the fee
mandatory with an option for a
refund afterwards. "When a stu-
dent is told he must do some-
thing, he balks," Stewart said
Although Peisner stated that
he would have preferred an al-
ternate method of collection, he
remarked that the system of vol-
untary contributions would
"work better here than an y-
where else in the country." The
reason for its success, he said,
was the intensive canvassing
and leafletting campaign carried
out by PIRGIM volunteers.
Money from the membership
drive will be used for a num-
ber of current PIRGIM pro-
jects, including an expanded
price survey of area stores, and
a study on abandoned homes in
Detroit's inner city, Peisner said.
