President for Academic Affairs Bill
Frye said he will recommend a tuition
increase of between 16 percent and 19
percent at the July Regents' meeting.
"I think they (the Regents) will ap-
prove it," he said.
Rising costs will probably require a
tuition increase "higher than at the
other universities," Frye said.
"All institutions are hurting," said
Richard Miller, executive director of

The state study, based on actual and
anticipated increases, projects the

unanimously approved a resolution
which "requests" the cooperation of
state officials in the registering of.

was drawn up by Councilmember
Leslie Morris and Mayor Louis Belcher

parolees to register with the city upon
establishing residency in the city and

the city can't regulate the actions of
state officials, they do request their
cooperation in establishing the

This information includes the names of
any persons assigned to the community
residential program or who has had the
limits of their place of confinement ex-
