(Continued from Page 1)-
Alice Lloyd Hall and a member
of the Rate Study Committee,
y--terday claimed the Housing
Office used "questionable fig-
ures" in its February deficit
projection of $258,000.
The Rate Study Committee,
a group appointed by Feldkamp
and composed of students and
administrators, made a three-
month study on student dorm
rates relative to housing ex-
penses, culminating in a report
to the Regents which recom-
mended that housing fees be
lowered.
As a result of that projection,
the administration is planning
to cutback on a number of stu-
dent services such as the meal
rebate option, dorm desk hours,
food budget allowances, and
maintenance costs.
IN A MAY 12 memo to Feld-
kamp, Munson prepared a bal-
ance sheet itemizing dorm rev-
enues and expenditures for next
year. According 'to Munson's
figures, the dorm system will
show a $35,000 deficit next year
even if no service cutbacks were
made.
Feldkamp, who never re-
sponded to the memo, explained
"I didn't see it as relevant-I
didn't see the need to spend my
Xerox machine time on it. He
has certain beliefs as to what
expenses will be but I'm not
going to rely on those."
"It's a matter of a lot of little
things-tighter budgeting," re-
sponded Munson, when asked
why his budget projections were
at such variance with Housing
Office data.
MUNSON contends the admin-
istration consistently budgets
over the amount really needed
for any given year, in order to
finance extra, unbudgeted con-
struction projects.
"The point would be that you
plan those sort of things well
ahead of time and then budget
for them," insists Munson.
"'What happens now is that they
have a $200000 end of the year
surplus and then they go out
and spend it."
Munson said he also included
a 1,per cent reduction in this
year's administrative operating
budget, a figure also used in
the rate committee report.
FELDKAMP called the differ-
ences between his budget and
Munson's "basic differences in
philosophy. His (Mu n s on's
method of financing is that you
spend what you are planning to
spend."
He also stated that no 1 per
cent decrease in the adminis-
trative operating budget was
planned. Instead a 6 per cent
increase will be implemented
in the fiscal year which begins
July 1st.
While Munson advocates a
"spend everything you budget"
policy, Feldkamp maintains that
with his sort of planning "you're
able to show savings over a
period of time. And I've never
felt wrong about having a slight
net revenue increase."
However, Munson points out
that this method of financing
paints a deceptive financial
picture of the student dorm
lease. Funds students may think
are going towards operating
costs may actually be used for
unbudgeted and perhaps con-
troversial construction projects.
"I know Mr. Feldkamp says
it's a sign of good management,
but good management is meet-
ing your budget-if you're do-
ing more than that means you're
spending too much on projects,"
asserted Munson.
MUNSON also added that the

past f i v e years' operating
budget surpluses of $200,000 each
cost every student an additional
$27 per year in dorm fees.
But for this reason, continued
Munson, he was surprised when
as a member of the Rate Study
Committee in February, he was
told that the University would
this year collect a total of $290,--
000 less operating revenue than
projected.
"But now in June there's go-
ing to be a slight surplus," con-
cluded Munson, who then point-
ed out that this original projec-
tion came when we (the Rate
Study Committee) were making
our budget projections as far
as next year. I feel they were
insinuating that the rise in ex-
penses this year was an im-
petus for a rate increase next
year."
WHEN Feldkamp was ques-
tioned about the fluctuation
from the projected budget deficit
in Winter to a surplus in May,
he stated, "$200,000 being found
in 14 million wasn't very tough
-it (the projected budget defi-
cit) could have been a panic
button pushed for effect."
Munson further stated that he
went to the Housing Office ask-
ing to see the May budget fig-
ures in order to find out what
actually caused the change.
However, after having been
referred twice to another office,
Munson said, "I talked to Bob
Hughes and Hughes (the asso-
ciate director of housing) said
I couldn't have it-and I honest-
ly don't know why-it seems in-
herently logical. But secrecy I
think is a real big thing."

HUGHES was not available
for comment on the matter.
At the same time yesterday,
groups of students were appear-
ing before the Board at its
monthly meeting to inform the
Regents of their experiences
with secrecy in the Housing
Office.
"Secrecy in the Housing Of-
fice is a valid concern," stated
Steve Hibshman, who cited nu-
merous instances in which
Housing office records were
kept from student scrutiny. He
then called for a full, inde-
pendent investigation of the
Housing Office.
SGC MEMBER Candice Mas-
sey complained of the planned
student dorm service cuts:
"There's a disturbing habit of
decisions being made in this
room not being implemented
when they get to the outside ...
my understanding was that the
intention of the board was not
to cut proposed services.
The Regents responded by
promising to discuss the matter
further, adopting a wait-and-see
attitude on the legitimacy of the
cuts.
"We didn't mean that Hous-
ing couldn't cut costs . . . but
not at the expense of consumer
services to students would we
cut them," said Regent Paul
Brown (D-Petoskey).
Regent Tom Roach (D-
Grosse Pointe) later comment-
ed he would like to see an item-
ization of what cuts would defi-
nitely be made. "So far all the
criticism seems to be a bit pre-
mature," he said.

City, 'U' argue over
fiscal responsibilities

(Continued from Page 1)
probably be greatly amended,"
said Rogers.
Regent Deane Baker (R-Ann
Arbor) argued more abrasively
with the city representatives
than h i s colleagues, saying
Rogers' presentation was "an
inaccurate, one sided case."
Saying the report highlighted
only the "penalties" the city in-
curs because of the University's
existence, Baker listed the Uni-
versity Hospital, the $200 million
in salaries that the University
pays to city residents employed
by the institution, and the num-
erous cultural activities pro-
vided by the Univeristy as bal-
ancing assets.

IN A FINAL statement to the
Regents, Wheeler requested that
the University make an immedi-
ate direct payment of $1.5 mil-
lion for this fiscal year to cover
costs of police, fire and other
services provided by the city.
He also suggested that a joint
committee of Regents and coun-
cil members be established to
develop long-range policies re-
garding equitable fiscal relation-
ships and practices between the
two parties.
While most of the Regents
were in accordance with Wheel-
er's proposal to set up a joint
committee, none of them ex-
pressed a willingness to provide
the city with the increased
funding.
