'U'regents confirm fall tuition hike

WITH REVENUE from con-
tracts, grants, and other sources,
the Regents tentatively approved
a total general operating fund
of $165,736,000. While this figure
represents an increase of nearly
$8.1 million in actual "new
;money" over last year's fund,
inflation and skyrocketing costs
(particularly in the area of util-
ities) bring it some $27 million
short of what the University
originally requested in Lansing
this winter.
"We are entering an austerity
year," R h o d e s gravely an-
nounced to the Board. "We are
now reaching the breaking point
here, and cannot continue to ab-
sorb cuts of this magnitude."
Members of the Board, who

President Fleming and other of-
ficials late into Thursday eve-
ning said they felt certain that
all alternatives to the hike had
been thoroughly explored.
REGENT Thomas Roach ' (D-
Grosse Pointe) said the Univer-
sity's officers were to be con-
gratualted for both keeping
room and board rates steady,
and holding the tuition increase
to six per cent.
"In a year of very high in-
flation, this represents a very
substantial management effort,'
Roach said.
"We're very much aware of
the student's hardship," noted
Regent David Laro (R-Flint),
"and I think we should make
it quite clear that every effort

Leonov began by showing
what he called "drawings made
a long time ago" holding up
side-by-side American and So-
viet flags.
Asked what he would like to
hear as news from earth, Brand
said "it would be nice to hear
that everything was more
peaceful over many areas of the
world, that the world is really
coming together."
A SHORT while after the
news conference the spacemen
gave their final farewells.
Stafford gave Leonov a box
of white spruce seeds, a spe-
cial variety developed for cold
climates such as the Soviet

commander's native Siberia.
There were enough seeds in the
box to plant a whole acre of
trees and Leonov said they
would do well "in the climate
of our country."
In his final remarks, Staf-
ford said: "I am sure that this
flight will open the way to fur-
t h e r cooperation a n d
friendship between our coun-
tries. Let the things that went
on in our flight be a good
thing for both our peoples."

within reason and beyond rea-
son to avoid the increase was
under consideration."
RHODES and Chief Financial
Officer Wilbur Pierpont took
great pains to point out that
student financial aid funding-
would be increased to campen-
sate for the tuition hike. Ac-
cording to Rhodes, financial aid
levels will be up $500,000 over
last year.. With a $1.2 million
increase in federal financial aid
monies, the total student aid
package will be "well over 30
million dollarS."
Midyear cutbacks in the 1975-
76 fund remain a distinct pos-
sibility. Last year, executive
orders lopped nearly $4.5 mil-
lion f r o m the University's
budget, and President Fleming
said there is "a widespread
feeling in the legislature that
it is very possible we will re-
ceive aother cutback francthe
Governor if state revenues do
not equal expenditures."
Fleming indicated that a two
per cent cut late this fall seem-
ed highly likely. Since it would
be based on the entire year's
budget, not just the amount re-
maining to be spent, "It will in
effect be double whatever the
Mail strike
(Continued from Page 3)
Two of the unions - repre-
senting letter carriers and
postal clerks - are under a
"no-contract,. no-work" man-
date from their memberships.
And union locals in several ma-
jor cities, including New York,
Philadelphia and Chicago, re-
portedly have threatened slow-
downs this weekend and wildcat
strikes Monday unless a tenta-
tive settlement is concluded.
The Postal Service presented
the unions with its first formal
contract proposal yesterday
which one union official called
"insulting."
"THERE'S nothing there we
can do anything with," said
James Iapenta, chief negotiator
for the union representing mail
handlers. He said postal work-
ers would not subsidize the Pos-
tal Service and added that the
only way the operation could
become self-sufficient was if
the rate structure was reform-
ed.
Darrell Brown, management's
chief negotiator, was more op-
timistic, saying they were
"making progress." Neither

In other action yesterday, the
Board approved a resolution by
Regent Paul Brown (D-Petos-
key) reaffirming the Univer-
sity's commitment to equal op-
portunity for women, specifical-
ly relating to the much discuss-
ed Title IX of the 1972 Omnibus

Education Act, which bans sex
discrimination in college ath-
letics.
The resolution noted that the
Regents "recognize the financial
implications of supporting wo-
men's intercollegiate athlefic
teams and support the passage
of the rules at the forthcoming
NCAA convention which will ef-
fect cost reductions in intercol-
legiate athletics."
The Regents also:
. ratified the appointment of
Helen Heneveld as a student
member to the Board in Con-
trol of Intercollegiate Athletics,
for a two year term. She re-
places Sheryl Szady.

"I haven't been watching

That's a nuisance."
But she was quick to add
that, morally, "I'm not offend-

they're funny."

Perhaps the whole issue of

explained by Roy Tanner.
"Either we're wrong or they're

ful moment, then asked 'rneto-
rically, "Where does society
