More students turn to
community colleges first

LANSING (AP)- An increasing
number of college-bound students are
saving money and still receiving de-
grees from the schools of their choice
by attending community colleges first,
"The public is beginning to under-
stand that freshman- and sophomore-
level classes are every bit as good at
community colleges as they are at any
four-year institution, and at half the
cost," said state Rep. Clyde LeTarte,
a former president of Jackson Com-
"If you're paying more than double
to go away when you can get the same
thing at home, what's the gain?" the
Republican from Horton asked.
Carmen Williams of Lansing
agrees. Western Michigan University
almost lured her with a $2,000-a-year
scholarship, but the 18-year-old el-
ementary education major said she
realized "it still was cheaper for me to
attend Lansing Community College
my first two years of college."
Williams determined it would have
cost her parents more than $100 per
credit hour for her to attend Western
Michigan University. The commu-
nity college charged only $48 per
Statewide, the average cost at a
Michigan community college is $43
per credit hour. At the state's 15 tax-
supported universities, the average is
$114 per credit hour.
So a full-time student would pay
roughly $1,333 annually in tuition at
a community college, compared with
$3,534 at a public state university.
And that's just the tuition.

in Congress are reluctant to expand

such an expansion into his budget has
not been determined.
National service was a cornerstone
of Clinton's campaign two years ago.
Following passage of the National
Community Service Trust Act, a pilot
program has been in place all summer
in various cities, including Detroit.
The program-- The United States
in Summer Safety -involved 6,000
students, primarily in inner cities.
Advocates believe the expanded
program will become a "domestic
peace corps" with young people work-
ing to rebuild American cities.
Segal said, "We're going to fall
short of some of our objectives - all
bold initiatives do, but AmeriCorps is
going to make a difference."

these areas may be included in the

only those units are involved.

MNP is a nonprofit organization
that represents business, educational,
religious, government and nonprofit
agencies in the Detroit area.
Larry Coppard, director of exter-
nal relations at the School of Social
Work, has acted as liason between the
University and MNP. He said the part-
nership between MNP and the Univer-
sity began about three years ago.
"(The partnership) exists to try to
support each other and to obtain re-
sources," he said.
Johnson said the partnership has
worked together on several projects,
however, this is the first to be funded.
She described the efforts of the
University and MNP as a collabora-
tive approach to community service.
"The idea is that the areas in need
will serve as a community campus,"
Checkoway added: "Our goal is to
give students the opportunity to serve
the community, reflect on the experi-
ence and learn from it."

"I think it will probably be revisited
by the regents if there are that many
loose ends," said Regent Deane Baker
(R-Ann Arbor) yesterday. "One would
hope that as broad a search for informa-
tion was made as could be made."
Regent Laurence Deitch (D-
Bloomfield Hills) said, "It sounds
wrong, but I'm not sure that it isn't
appropriate. It's very important to
honor a donor's intent."
Following the audit's release, then-
acting communication department
chair L. Rowell Huesmann and asso-
ciate chair Vincent Price drafted the
guidelines in consulation with the LSA
dean's office and a University attor-
ney, Cross said.
"No one from the University has
put forth a formal mechanism for ap-
proving guidelines for using gifts,"
Cross said the proposal will go
into effect pending the attorney's re-
view. "I am aware of nothing that will
prevent them from being the final
guidelines," he said.

viewed and approved these guide-
lines, and what effort they made tS

all the money and uses it for scholar-
ship research, which wasn't what it
was intended for."
Cross dismissed Maurer's criti-
cism of the new guidelines.

suspect he can't either," Cross said.

father had established," Maurer said.
"I would think that we will be con-
tacting the University to see if we can
establish an understanding as to how
the bequest was made and what Mr.
and Mrs. Weber had in mind. It seems
the University has lost sight of that."
Maurer said his family has sus-
pected for a while that the fund wa*

On Aug. 30, 1991, an attorney for
Maurer's father sent a letter to the
University questioning the use of the
endowments. After receiving no re-
sponse, the attorney sent a second
letter on Nov. 25, 1991.
In January 1992, Duderstadt sent
a letter to the Maurers assuring them
that the endowments had been use
"We requested that they give us an
idea of how the fund was being spent
and they assured us everything was
fine," Maurer said. "The audit report
indicated their response wasn't the
truth. It was certainly a letter that had
misinformation in it"
Actress Jessica Tandy, 85, dies
Los Angeles Times
Jessica Tandy, the versatile dra-
matic actress who electrified Broad-
way audiences as the original Blanche
Du Bois in Tennessee Williams' clas-
sic "A Streetcar Named Desire" and
went on to wider fame decades later
as the Oscar-winning heroine of the
film "Driving Miss Daisy," died yes-
terday. She was 85.
She died at the Connecticut home
she shared with her actor husband
Hume Cronyn after a four-year battle
with ovarian cancer. Cronyn was at
her side, the couple's publicist Leslee
Dart said in announcing the death.
Tandy died on the day she and
Cronyn were vying for Emmy awards
as best lead actress and actor in a
miniseries or special for their CBS
movie, "To Dance with the White
Tandy won her best-actress Acad-
emy Award in 1990 for her portrayal,
of a Southern Jewish dowager in
"Driving Miss Daisy," a film that
charmed audiences around the world.
But long before, Tandy had more-
than established herself by winning
three of the coveted Antoinette Perr
"Tony" awards for dramatic acting in
legitimate theater. She was a veteran
of more than 150 roles onstage, screen,
radio and television in a career that,
spanned nearly seven decades.
For 52 of those years, she was
married to Cronyn, with whom she
performed in several plays and films,
including the 1985 movie, "Cocoon,"
and its sequel "Cocoon: The Return."
