salary program. Any reduction in either of those
would reduce the salary program even more, he said.
"Any rise in tuition would only mean we will fall less
short of the goal we should be aiming for," he said.
UNIVERSITY President Harold Shapiro said that
if this year held the same sort of disastrous state ap-
propriation, it would mean a rapid reduction of
programs. "We were hoping to give ourselves a year
to digest what (program cuts) we've already (lone,"
he said.
"We shall continue to do all we possibly can to con-
tinue a controlled retrenchment program," said
Frye, but cutting more programs now in an effort to
head off such a large tuition hike would be dangerous
and inadvisable.
"Are we making it easier for the state to cut back"
in their appropriation by raising tuition, asked
Regent Thomas Roach (D-Saline). Right now, he
said, the burden on the student is the lack of state
funds that drives up tuition.
THE REGENTS have held to the idea of "smaller

but better" and the decision should keep with the
idea, said Roach. '"I'm not sure the market is elastic
enough" to accommodate the increase, he said.
Roach noted that the proposed tuition increase
comes on the heels, of other fee hikes, such as the
mandatory health service fee, Michigan Union
renovations, and registration fees, adding that
because of these, the fee increase for the student will
actually be 19.2 percent if the 18 percent tuition hike
is approved.
Regent Baker took advantage of the opportunity
and admonished his collegues for passing the fee
assessments in the first place. "These were the
things we could have deferred," he said.
President Shapiro said he believed the increase
would not repel good students. "We want to continue
to attract the best students, and 18 percent is the
outer limit," he said.
In other business, the Regents approved the ap-
pointment of Gideon Frieder as the chairman of the
computer and communication sciences department
at the University. His appointment takes effect Sept.
1.
