The University Board of Regents, saddled
with an "austerity year" state appropriation,
gave formal approval yesterday to a widely
anticipated set of tuition increases, averaging
six per cent.
The hikes, at both undergraduate and grad-
uate levels, are effective September 1.
FRANK RHODES, University vice president for
academic affairs, told the Board, "We recognize that
the average six per cent fee increase will create hard-
ship," but defended the measure as "the lowest, most
modest increase we could recommend to the Regents."
For Michigan residents, the increase wilt bring
underclass tuition to $424 per semester, with in-state
juniors and seniors shelling out $480, an increase of $28.
The hike will jack out-of-state fees for freshpeople
and sonhomores to $1,378 per semester, an increase of
58. Non-resident upperclasspeople can expect to pay
$.1,484 come this fall.
BOTH IN and out-of-state graduate students in many
of the University's schools will be subject to fee in-
creases. Resident Rackham and law students are
slated for the full six per cent hike, as well as ap-
proximately five per cent hikes for all medical and
dental school students.
Other increases approved by the Regents include a
2.5 per cent boost for the School'of Public Health, and
a 4 per cent hike for out-of-staters attending law school
The increases come in the wake of a bleak, infla-
tion ravaged state appropriations picture for fiscal
1975-76. While the University's $109.8 million budget
package passed by the Senate still awaits final action
by the House, University officials felt the figure would
be accurate enough to present to the Board for tenta-
tive approval, with minor adjustments to be made in

HOUSTON (AP) - American and Soviet
spacemen celebrated a festival of friend-
ship aboard united ships yesterday and
proclaimed their adventure in detent as
the dawn of "a new era" for men.
"When we opened this hatch in space
we were opening back on earth a new
era in the history of man," Thomas Staf-
ford, the American commander, said
during a 30-minute news conference
THE astronauts and cosmonauts, in a
hymn of hope, talked of a vast new age
of cooperation and peace, of factories in
space, of international voyages to new
worlds, and of peace among all mnen.,
Televised views of the men during the
news conference showed Stafford and'
declare 'new era' for world
Alexei Leonov, the Russian commander,
together in the Soviet Soyuz spacecraft.
Americans Donald Slayton and Vance
Brand were grouped with cosmonaut Va-
leri Kubasov in the Apollo craft.
The conference came only a few hours
before farewells and the final closing
of hatches, separating the men of So-
yuz and Apollo for the last time in space.
The spacecraft will unlock and part on
LENOV said he viewed their joint
space flight as "only the beginning of
a great human . journey into outer
space," and called the adventure "a
great, grandiose human- effort in space.
Cooperation between men, said Brand,
will lead mankind to new and distant
- "The time will come when we'll ex-
plore planets together," he said. "It
would bring benefits back to the whole
Kubasov, who became the first welder
in space on an earlier Soviet flight, fore-
cast an age when space would create a
better life on earth.
"THE TIME will come when space
will have whole plants, factories for the
production of new materials and new
substances with new properties which
could be made only in space," he said,
Earlier experiments in space have
' raised the hope that by smelting metals
in space, where there is no gravity, they
will be stronger and more durable. Mol-
ten metals cooling on earth develop
weak spots due to the affects of gravity.
Slayton, a World War II pilot over
Europe, was asked how the continent
looked from space now and he called
"mighty beautiful from up here . I
just wish everybody down there could
have the opportunity to look at it from
space for themselves."
LEONOV was asked about his sketch-
es in space and the Coyuz commander
produced what he called-a "portrait gat-
lery in space." The sketches done in or-
bit included two of Stafford and a whim-
sical view of Slayton wearing a cowboy
