SGC fun ingd
plan restricted
The Regents yesterday approved an increase in student fees for
Student Government Council. The regental statement stipulated that
none of the money could be used to sue the University
An asaessment at 511 cents an all students ta fund school and
college governments, and a plan wherehy students could voluntarily
cantribute one dollar towards the proposed SGC grocery coope ative
were also approved.
The Regents' action increased the tuition assessment for SGC
from 25 cents to one dollar per term. Students approved this plan
by a narrow margin in last March's SGC election.

oman eans
to head law
Jane Waterson yesterday be-
came the first woman to attain
a high ranking position in the
University Law School.
Waterson's appointment as
assistant dean and admissions
director was approved by the
Regents at yesterday's meeting.
She will oversee student re-
cruitment and admissions, fi-
nancial aids for first year stu-
dents and relations with under-
graduate institutions.
"We can encourage more
women and minority students
to apply to law school," she

The assessment also provided
for 30 cents on each dollar to
go to a legal advocate for SGC.
The Regents had objected to
the advocate proposal, saying it
could be using University money
to fund suits against the Uni-
Therefore, the proposal w a s'
amended to prohibit use of the
funds to finance legal action
against the University.
Regent Paul Brown (D-Peto-
sky) who proposed the -amend-
ment explained that he feared
"we could only have gotten two
votes for the motion (to ap-
prove the assessment) if we had
not included the amendment."
SGC President Bill Jacobs, an-
gry over the decision, told the
Regents they passed the amend-
ment because they "are afraid
we will sue them"
"There is some dirty laundry
or skeletons in the closet isoe-
where in the University ."Ja-
cobs warned. "If it takes a lal-
yer or even a private detective
we'll find that dirty laundryan-
spread it across the front pages
of every newspaper."
"There is no dirty laundy
here," President Robben Flem-
ing responded. "I have not the
slightest fear of a lawsuit and
that is why I supported toe mc-
tien without the amendment -'
Jacobs agreed to another com-
promise on the proposed grccery
cooperative. Rather than ap-
proving funding from the gen-
eral assessment, the Rgesnts
established a voluntary paymcsnt
system for the project. Under its
terms, students not wishing to
support the grocery could tad-
cate their opposition to it dur-
tag registration.
"The students approved a one
dollar increase with the under-
standing that 25 cents of that
dollar would go to forming a
grocery co-op," said Jacobs.
"Our constitution forbids us
from spending that 25 cents on
