University administrators said the
hike was the best way to raise the funds.
"We are on the oldest campus in
the state," said President James J.
Duderstadt. "The state has been very,
very less than diligent in helping us
keep up our buildings."
Provost and Executive Vice Presi-
dent for Academic Affairs Gilbert R.
Whitaker Jr. said maintaining Uni-
versity buildings requires about $13
million a year. But the University
does not always raise fees to pay for
"We don't ask for these fee in-
creases without reasons. We don't
believe it's always the right thing to
do," he said.
Several students endorsed the fee
increase during the public comments
portion of the meeting.
"These renovations will help us
coordinate more easily and reach
more students," said LSA junior

"Students will be much more en-
gaged in the learning process. ... I
think more and more attention is be-
ing placed on the quality of the under-
graduate experience," said Zeller, who
will be 45 next month.
Besides heading the residence hall
system at Washington State, Zeller also
was involved with students. As direc-
tor, he has overseen new student pro-
grams, aleadership education program,
Greek affairs and other programs.
"That certainly has been an inter-
est of mine - a high level of student
contact," Zeller said.
Residence Hall Association Presi-
dent Stacia Fejedelem, who met with
each of the final candidates, said she
thought Zeller was the best for the job.
"I thought all the candidates were
really qualified, but I'm glad William
Zeller was given the position," she
said. "It appeared to me that he was
really interested in what went on here
and what students want."
Hartford had wanted to have a di-
rector in place when classes began in
September. But the committee origi-
nally received only 31 applications, said
Rodger Wolf, an assistant to Hartford.
Wolf said he had anticipated 100 to 150
applicants for the post.
Wolf said last night that Zeller's
salary will be about $100,000.
Zeller holds a bachelor's degree
in sociology from Northern Illinois
University, a master's in college stu-
dent personnel from Western Illinois
University and a doctoral degree in
higher education administration from
Iowa State University.
Zeller said he was nominated for
the post by Eric Luskin, director of
the University's Family Housing.
Zeller said he met Luskin at Northern
Illinois University in the mid-1970s,
when they both served as residence

Balanced budget amendment may
go to states after vote in Senate
WASHINGTON - If the Senate approves the proposed balanced budget
amendment tomorrow, Congress will ask the states to take a historic gamble
some say will free future generations from debt and others warn could ruin the
economy, disrupt vital government services and devastate the social safety net.
For nearly 60 years, the fight over a constitutional amendment to force the
government to live within its means except in times of war has largely been ai*
academic exercise. But in the wake of the Republican takeover of Congress,
the House has overwhelmingly approved the measure, 300 to 132, and
supporters in the Senate are within a couple of votes of the two-thirds majority
needed to adopt the amendment and send it on to the states for ratification.
Republican leaders say passage of a balanced budget amendment is
essential to GOP plans to impose fiscal discipline on an unruly Congress and
put the government on a seven-year "glide path" to eliminating the deficit.
Republicans insist they can cut taxes, protect Social Security from reductions,
beef up defense and still eliminate the deficit by the year 2002.

Clinton order to help
collect child support
WASHINGTON - With thou-
sands of federal workers dodging child
support bills, President Clinton will
make it easier to track down the dead-
beat parents and collect their money,
the White House said yesterday.
Clinton, who has made child sup-
port enforcement part of his welfare
reform plan, will sign an executive
order today aimed at the 105,000 fed-
eral workers skipping out on child
support or avoiding efforts to estab-
lish their paternity.
"One of the purposes of issuing the
executive order is to make the federal
government a model employer by re-
quiring its workers to live up to their
responsibility of providing child sup-
port to their children," presidential
spokeswoman Ginny Terzano said.
The order will mainly seek im-
proved communication between states
and the federal government, so viola-
tors cannot slip through the cracks of
The Internal Revenue Service now
garnishes tax refunds of deadbeat
parents identified by states. Clinton's
executive order will require agencies
to cross-check the state lists annually
against payroll or personnel files to
identify federal workers.
