Fall term
dorm rate,
in creases
approved
yRegents
By JANET RAE
It will cost a bit more to put a roof
over your head and a desk under your
books next term when the new rates for
University dormitory housing approved
yesterday by the Regents go into effect.
Traditional residence halls will
charge 9.55 percent more for their ser-
vices next fall while rates for Oxford,
Fletcher, and Baits will increase by 12.5
percent and family housing units will
charge 12.2 percent more..
DIRECTOR OF Housing Robert
Hughes told the Regents the increases
were necessary because of rising utility
costs and continuation of the new ex-
tended meal hours and breakfast plan
*t Bursley, Markley, and West Quad
dormitories.
Hughes estimated utility costs would
increase between 22 percent and 24 per-
cent by next year.
"Utilities are becoming the single
biggest determinant of our rate struc-
ture," Hughes said. He said some
savings are already being made
because of recent window replacement
ndinsulation projects. Dorm rooms
are being equipped with individual heat
control valves so residents will not have
to open windows to regulate heat.
The increase in residence hall rates
for most dorms is slightly less than the
10.25 percent hike originally proposed
to Hughes by the Student Rate Commit-
tee last month.
Under the new rates, a traditional
ormitory double room which costs
$2,281.29 for two terms this year will
run $2,499.72 next year.

Labor and Industrial Relations,

Mental Retardation

By BARRY WITT
and JANET RAE
Two of the first University programs
targeted for review under the ad-
ministration's five-year plan are the
Institute of Labor and Industrial
Relations (ILIR) and the Institute for
the Study of Mental Retardation and
Related Disabilities (ISMRRD), mem-
bers of a key University budget com-
mittee confirmed yesterday.,
The two institutes will be reviewed by
special committees for possible budget
cutbacks in excess of 15 percent.-Vice
President for Academic Affairs Billy
Frye will announce the list of those
programs to be reviewed within 1Q
days, he said.
THE REGENTS yesterday approved
"in principle" the five-year plan, which
calls for shifts in the University's
budget of at least $20 million over the
next five years.
The review of the two institutes will
be similar to those conducted last year
on four non-academic University units,
said psychiatry Prof. Sylvan Kor-
nblum, a member of the faculty-student
Budget Priorities Committee.
Last year's reviews resulted in cut-
backs in various University programs
ranging from 20 percent to 90 percent.

VICE PRESIDENT Frye, inter-
viewed after yesterday's Regents'
meeting, refused to confirm that the
ILIR and the ISMRRD were two of the
programs to be reviewed. But last
night, members of the Budget'
Priorities Committee (BPC), with
whom Frye previously discussed the
plan, confirmed the two institutes were
among those up for review.
Frye received the endorsement of the
budget committee on Saturday to move
ahead with the review of the two in-
stitutes, said committee member

Lrgeted
Jamie Moeller.
"He presented us with the
background information on the in
stitutes and asked if it was responsible
(to review these institutes). We said
'yes,' " said Moeller, who is a student
member of the committee. "The next
step will be to appoint subcommittees
to review (the institutes)."
INCLUDED IN Frye's presentation
to the budget committee were analyses
of the units' purposes and performan-

reduced the budget of several non-
academic units by as much as 90 per-
cent, officials said yesterday.
The budgets of the Recreational Spor-
ts Department, the Extension Service,

the Center for Research on Learning
and Teaching, and Michigan Media
were all drastically reduced after un-
dergoing reviews by faculty and
student committees one year ago.

reallocation. Two University institutes have been targeted for review in the
first move toward implementing the plan.

MSA calls for tax on seas

By BETH ALLEN
A new plan calling for a tax on all
season football and basketball tickets
has been proposed by the Michigan
Student Assembly.
Money made from the'tax, according
to MSA members, would be turned over
to the Office of Financial Aid to offset
potential student aid cuts currently
proposed by the Reagan ad-
ministration.
THE PROPOSAL, which has been
backed by both MSA and LSA-Student
Government, would add a 50-cent
charge 'to each season football and
basketball ticket - a total of $3 per
student on football tickets and $7 per
student for basketball tickets.
In addition, the two student groups

are advocating the reallocation of an
extra $47,000 in student tuition fees.
This tuition money goes to the Univer-
sity's athletic department. The depar-
tment then uses the money for the
upkeep of Crisler Arena, LSA-SG of-
ficials claim.
The problem lies in the fact that the
fee was implemented in 1967 when the
arena was built. Students were charged
to pay debts owed on the original con-
struction costs of Crisler.
Fees charged in the 1981-82 budget
totaled $363,670, but, according to LSA-
SG member Jamie Moeller, only,
$315,985 was actually paid by the depar-
tment. That leaves $47,000 unused,
Moeller said.
MOELLER AND MSA President Jon
Feiger said planners behind the

proposal would like to see the differen-
ce between the revenue from the fees
and the cost of the debt payment go
back to students.
Currently, the money is used to pay
for heat, lighting, and maintenance of
Crisler under an agreement made when
the arena was built, according to.
University Chief Financial Officer
James Brinkerhoff.
But the tax and the reallocation of
funds face several roadblocks before
they could be implemented.,
THE PROPOSAL will have to be
cleared by the Baord in Control of In-
tercollegiate Athletics before advan-
cing any further, according to Moeller
and Feiger.
The Board in Control of Inter-
collegiate Athletics is the ruling body of

ion sport
the University's athletic department..
The board is made up. of faculty mem-
bers, administrators, and alumni.
In addition, the University may not
be able to implement the ticket tax un-
der Big Ten conference rules, accor-
ding to Vice President for State
Relations Richard Kennedy, a member
of the athletic board.
"WE DON'T know if there's any
problem from the conference stan-
dpoint," Kennedy said. r
University Big Ten conference
faculty representative and Political
Science Prof. Tom Anton said he was
unaware of any conference sanctions.
against a proposal, but said the matter
would need further exploration.
Brinkerhoff said the tax and the
proposal to move the funds from the

athletic department to financial aid
would need the approval of the Regents.
UNIVERSITY President Harold
Shapiro said the plan raises issues that
"will really have to be thought
through."
"I have reservations about the sup-
port of academic programs from
athletic programs," Shapiro said. "It's
a relationship that's not altogether
healthy."-
Sports teams may not always be as
successful as-they have been recently,
Shapiro said, and it would not be
bgnefitical to have other University
programs depend upon the athletic
department for funds.
THE PROPOSAL is similar to one
that appeared on the ballot during last
November's LSA-SG elections.

College presidents attack
cutbacks in financial aid

By GEORGE ADAMS
The presidents of more than 40
Michigan colleges and universities met
yesterday in Ann Arbor to discuss the
future of higher education and to voice
opposition to cutbacks in financial aid
to students.
The: meeting was 'the first to bring
together the presidents of the state's
public and private, four-year and
community colleges in, more than a
decade. It was called by University
President Harold Shapiro, who sought
to show the presidents' unity in asking

for more government aid to higher
education.
THE PRESIDENTS, who were ac-
companied by the financial aid direc-
tors of their respective colleges,
discussed the Reagan administration's
budget proposals and predicted what
the effects would be on college students
in the state.
Most of the officials agreed that if all
of the cutbacks in aid backed by the
White House are approved by Congress,
the effects would be devastating to
Michigan students. The administrators
said enrollment in all their schools

* would most certainly decline as a result
of the cutbacks, if they are implemen-
ted.
THE PRESIDENTS and about 60 of
their staff members, most of whom
were financial aid officials, attended
the. meeting held at the Gerald Ford
Presidential Library on the Univer-
sity's North Campus.
The officials passed a resolution (see
text, Page 8) that warned of the poten-
tially disastrous effects of the Reagan
cutbacks in aid to higher education. The
document argued that access to higher

Cager Dietz hits 2,000 mark

By LARRY MISHKIN
Diane Dietz made the big basket, but
then came up one free throw short of
winning as the Michigan women's
basketball team dropped a 68-67
decision to Saginaw Valley last night in
Crisler Arena.
A layup midway through the second
stanza gave Dietz 2,001 points as she
became only the third player in

Michigan history to reach the 2,000
point plateau.
THE BASKET also put the
Wolverines up by one point and gave
them their first lead of the night, which
they clung to until the Lady Cardinals
went back up on top with two minutes
left. Michigan stayed within two and
while the Wolverines played for the last
shot, Dietz was fouled with one second

left. The newest member of Michigan's
2,000 point club sunk the first shot
before watching the second one bounce
off the back of the rim.
"No one is 100-percent from the line,"
said Michigan .coach Gloria Soluk.

but I was confident in her ... This game
