Survey tallies student expenses

By CARL WEISER
The cost of pizza, movies, and recor-
ds are part of a questionnaire being
distributed by the Office of Financial
Aid to get a student perspective on
educational expenses.
The survey, which is being sent ran-
domly to 7,000 students, is the third
such questionnaire to be used by the
University, said Bob Holmes, assistant
academic affairs vice president. The
last was distributed in 1979 and the first
went out in 1974.
HOLMES SAID the 81-question sur-
vey will help financial aid officals to
determine the minimum amount of aid
Klansman
says FBI
informant
shot Liuzzo
By GEORGEA KOVANIS
FBI informant Gary Thomas Rowe
used Ku Klux Klansman Eugene
Thomas'.38 caliber revolver to kill civil
rights worker Viola Liuzzo nearly 18
years ago, according to a video-taped
deposition by Klansman Collie LeRoy
Wilkins.
Wilkins' deposition was presented in
U.S. District Court in Ann Arbor
yesterday in a trial involving a $2
million lawsuit filed by Liuzzo's
children against the U.S. government.
They accused FBI informant Rowe of
murdering their mother and hold the
government responsible for Rowe's ac-
tions.
LIUZZO WAS traveling along High-
way 80 between Montgomery and
Selma, Ala. on March 25, 1965 when she
was shot. She had been transporting
voters rights marchers between Selma
and Montgomery.
According to Wilkins' testimony,
Rowe ordered the car carrying himself,
Wilkins, and two other Klansmen to
pursue the car transporting Liuzzo and
fellow civil rights worker, LeRoy
Moten.
The Liuzzo car "had a white woman
and a nigger in it," Wilkins said.
WILKINS SAID Thomas, the driver
of the car carrying the Klansmen,
obeyed Rowe, adding that Thomas hit
speeds of 95-100 mph while pursuing the
car carrying Liuzzo and Moten.
"He stuck his arm out the window and
shot her," he testified. "He shot four or
five times with Thomas' .38 caliber
revolver."
WILKINS SAID they never stopped to
see if Liuzzo or Moten had been killed.
Instead they continued to travel to
Bessemer where they stopped for a few
drinks at a bar before moving on to
a local VFW hall.
Wilkins said he hated seeing white
and blacks - like Liuzzo and Moten -
together.
"We just didn't believe in race
mixing," he said. "I just don't believe
that it is right for the races to mix,
they've always been separated," he
added, saying that when the world was
formed different races were given dif-
ferent continents to live on.
WILKINS SAID he assumed people
like Liuzzo who associated with blacks
were senseless. "I just figured they
didn't have good sense."
Wilkins served time in a federal
penitentiary for 5 years for violating
Liuzzo's civil rights.
He was found not guilty of murder.
However, in his testimony yesterday, he

maintained that he never told the full
story of what actually happened on that
dark, misty evening in March, 1965. He
said his attorney at the time advised
him not to mention that Rowe shot
Liuzzo with Thomas' gun.

a student needs to make it through a
year at the University.
"We don't want (financial aid
recipients) to live below the poverty
level," he said. Officials want student
input to help determine a suitable
minimum aid figure because students
"are the people who know best," he
said.
The survey is divided into four
secitons to explore the personal
backgrounds of responding students,
their expenses and income, their
responses to possible increased costs,
and their evaluation of the financial aid
presently available to them.

BESIDES quesitons about weekly
expenses, such as pizza, movies, and
records, students are asked to estimate
how much they spend on books, room
and board, arnd clothing for a typical
year.
The survey also asks students how
they would meet unexpected increases
of $400, $800, $1200, and $1800.
Researchers in the Office of
Academic Planning and Analysis will
process the surveys and release a com-
puter evaluation of the results through
the Office of Financial Aid during the
spring, Holmes said.

"The surveys will influence the
amount of money allocated to financial
aid," Holmes said. Because of the
weight the results will carry, he saidj,
officials will be wary of the numbers
submitted by students.
"Some jokers will write that they
spend ten grand on pizza every week,"
Holmes said.
Officials will use the results to revise
their figures for each category of finan-
cial aid recipient. Holmes said a good
example would be the different expen-.
ses of a sophomore living in a house a4
opposed to a freshman living in a dorm.

MSA switchesinsurance firms

By LAURIE DELATER
The Michigan Student Assembly
voted last night to drop the company
which currently handles its property
insurance plan for students.
The assembly accepted a recommen-
dation from an insurance subcommit-
tee to change from G-M Underwriters
Inc. to National Student Service Inc.
"G-M Underwriters is a fly-by-night
operation," said Dan Plante, the sub-
committee's chairman.
LAST YEAR, the assembly decided
to end arrangements with G-M for
student health insurance policies after
claims that the company was not living
up to MSA expectations, Plante said.
The insurance committee discovered
last year that the unlicensed company
over-charged MSA for service costs, he
later said.
Other information about the com-
pany's mistakes were part of the com-
mittee's files which disappeared in the
mid-'70s. According to Plante, there is
some question about the company's
possible involvement in the disap-
pearance of those files.
G-M UNDERWRITERS in the past
had also charged different health in-
surance rates to students at the Univer-
sity's three campuses. "Students at
Flint and Dearborn were charged $5
more for health insurance protection,"
he said.

across the country, also is "a bit more
compatible with student needs," Plante
said.
The policy is available to all Univer-
sity students, unlike the current plan
which is offered only to students in
University-owned, operated, or af-
filiated housing. For an annual fee of
$32, the plan covers personal property
valued at a minimum of $2000.
,Students can increase their protec-
tion in $500 increments up to $6000 un-
der the new policy.
In addition to the $25 deductible of-
fered in the current plan, the cost of the
NSSI policy decreases by $5 as the
deductible doubles.
PERSONAL ITEMS including
clothing, television sets, stereo equip-
ment, cameras, rental refrigerators,
typewriters, and calculators are
covered under the policy. Bicycle theft,
contact lenses, and monev are not
covered, however.

Plante said NSSI is considering an
option for coverage of personal com-
puters, recognizing their growing
popularity on college campuses
"We're assuming they won't be covered
next year because they have only men-
tioned it to us," he said.
