TIT WOULD HAVE been, as the media have now
repuated too many times, a dream ticket. Unor-
thodox, unprecedented, and unconquerable. A for-
mer governor for president and a former president
for vice president.
We can only say, thank God it didn't happen.
Thark God Gerald Ford will not run with Ronald
Reagan. At least with George Bush as a running
mate, there is still a slight chance Reagan will not
be elected president; with Ford, Jimmy Carter and
John Anderson could just as well have conceded
defeat.
It's hard to believe that only a few months ago,
political pundits were still shaking their heads,
prophesying that Reagan was unelectable. How'
could the experts have predicted, however, the
wildly erratic whims of the American people?
Ronald Reagan, with his appeals to an in-
creasingly conservative, increasingly jingoistic
America, is a terrifyingly strong candidate for
president, especially when set against the inept,
indecisive Carter. Whether Ford chose not to run
with Reagan, or Reagan chose not to run with Ford,
we can now breathe a little easier knowing that
Reagan does not yet have a free ticket into the
White House.
Advertising for
a tuition hike
TODAY, IN ALL likelihood, the Regents will
approve a thirteen per cent tuition hike.
That means come September, in all likelihood,
some students will be forced to decide they can no
longer afford to attend the University.
The tuition hike has been advertised by the ad-
ministration as inevitable; it is maintained that the
high quality of education at the University will
decline if more funds are not generated through a
tuition increase.
That advertisement, while not actually untrue, is
certainly somewhat misleading. It is correct to say
that, given drastically ,'decreased state ap-
propriations and skyrocketing inflation, a thirteen
per cent increase is necessary to at least maintain
the status quo.
But what is not generally announced by the ad-
ministration is another fiscal option that could
eliminate the need for huge tuition hikes-a
narrowing of the focus of the University.
This narrowing option is certainly not a pleasant
prospect-it involves' wholesale, cutting of entire
programs or even schools.
But what the Regents should consider is what
hurts more: the brief, albeit intense, pain of am-
putating an entire program, or the slow financial
bleedj g of studentsto supporta University.that
has grown too large for its own good.
