In a meeting marred by early reports
of yesterday's shootings, the Regents
passed by a 6-2 vote a 40 percent in-
crease in health service fees.
Students will be required to pay a $47
per term Health Service fee, up from
$33.50, but will be provided most ser-
vices free of charge. Under the current
system students are charged
separately for many services.
REGENT DEANE Baker (R-Ann Ar-
bor) protested the hike, saying the
University would be making "a
philosophical change" in its approach
to providing health care for students.
Regent Thomas Roach (D-Saline),
the only other member of the board to
vote against the increase, said there
was a limit to how much student fees
can be raised this year, alluding to the
proposed 16 percent to 19 percent
Adding the health service increase to
a tuition hike could push the total in-
crease for students close to a 22 percent
hike, Roach said.
BUT UNIVERSITY President Harold
Shapiro defended the proposal,
claiming the average student will save
money in the long run through the
elimination of most current fee-for-
The Regents' also authorized yester-
day the start of work on renovations for
the Michigan Union. The $4.6 million
project may add another $6 assessment
to student fees, but the Regents asked
administrators to look into the
possibility of charging current students
less for the renovations - from which
they may never get any value - and in-
creasing the amount students will pay
in future years.
Construction on the project - which
will increase space for the University
Cellar bookstore, provide a student-
oriented food service, and add room for
specialty retail outlets - is expected to
begin this fall.
In other action, the Regents approved
the appointments of University
Economics Prof. Peter Steiner to the
deanship of LSA and Rhetaugh Duam,
deputy director of the National Institute
of Mental Health, to head the School of
Nursing. Both of the new deans will
take over July 1 for five-year terms.
The start of construction for the
Replacement Hospital Project cleared
one more barrier as the Regents ap-
proved phased construction strategy.
Instead of having a single general con-
tractor take responsibility for the entire
project, the University will seek
separate contracts for each stage of

Several University officials said
yesterday there is no effective means of
enforcing a policy that bans students
from storing guns or ammunition in
their dormitory rooms. Their commen-
ts followed yesterday's slayings of two
Bursley Hall residents, who were shot
with an illegal sawed-off shotgun.
"I have serious doubts that we could
identify all the persons in dorms who
might have guns," said Thomas
Easthope, assistant vice president for
student services. "If we knew how to
prevent people from getting guns into
dorms, don't you think we would
THE UNIVERSITY'S standard
residence hall' lease contains a
provisionthat prohibits the use or
possession- of firearms or other
dangerous weapons by dormitory
residents. But Easthope and other
University officials said there is
nothing to prevent dormitory residents
from violating that regulation.
"Guns in dorms have never been an
overwhelming concern of, ours in the
number of years that I've been here,"
according to Vice President for Student
Services Henry Johnson. "If a person
wishes to violate the law and University
regulations, we can only enforce that
regulation after the fact. Otherwise, we
would be getting into the business of
According to University Housing
Security Services Manager David
Foulke, "The residence hall (gun)
policy is difficult, if not impossible, to
enforce. It can only be enforced if
someone sees the weapon and reports it
to the dormitory staff. We certainly
won't start entering rooms once a term
to check for guns, or anything else like
BURSLEY HALL, the North Campus
residence hall where yesterday's
slayings took place, was the site of
another recent shooting incident. A non-
University resident was arrested on
March 9 following a party in the dor-
mitory's cafeteria. The person was
taken into custody by Ann Arbor police
after allegedly shooting a gun outside of
the dormitory during an argument.
Foulke said the March incident
"didn't raise our concerns because it
was related to an outside group that had
rented the cafeteria. We had no
problems with the group, just this non-
University person hanging on the
fringes of the party."
The University included the firearms
provision to its dormitory leases to
protect students, according to Foulke.
"We thought we'd prevent accidents
due to horseplay and the handling of
supposedly 'unloaded' guns," he said.
"We were also concerned that persons
with guns in their rooms might become
the target for burglars."
FOULKE SAID more than a decade
ago students were allowed to bring hun-
ting weapons with them to the Univer-
sity. The rifles and shotguns were han-
ded over to dormitory resident direc-
tors, who locked the weapons up in
"That policy was ended because we
thought we were setting up RDs for lar-
cenies," he said. "Now, when persons
call to find out about our gun policies,
we tell them to make outside
arrangements with commercial
storage companies in town."
