VICE PRESIDENT for Academic Affairs Billy Frye discusses next year's
estimated tuition hikes at yesterday's Regents meeting.
Kelly trial sent

By BILL SPINDLE
A University administrator announced
yesterday that a tuition increase of at
least 15 percent and possibly as much
as 20 percent can be expected for the
next academic year.
The announcement, given by Univer-
sity Vice President for Academic Af-
fairs Billy Frye in a report to the
University Regents, was the first
estimate administrators have set for
the 1982/83 year tuition.
"GIVEN OUR already very high
tuition rates, and the history of the past
decade ... it is difficult to propose yet a
further increase in the student's share
of our costs. Yet, considering the alter-
natives, it appears we shall have no
other choice," Frye said.
He said that at least a 15 percent
tuition increase would be needed by the
University to make up for lost state
allocations - which have failed to rise
even close to the rate of inflation - and
to support an adequate faculty salary
to jury
said. "Just because it's a senseless
crime does not mean its a blameless
crime,' he said.
Kelly, 23, faces two counts of first
degree murder for the 1981 shootings of
Douglas McGreaham and Edward
Siwik in the 6th floor Bursley hallway
where all three were residents.
"Leo Kelly does not believe he is
mentally ill," Waterman said. "If this
man had any sense, any sanity, then or
now, he would not have presented him-
self the way he did" to the psychiatrists
and psychologists who examined him.
WATERMAN said that "Kelly was
going over the edge," at the time of the
shootings.

program for the next academic year.
Although the state has yet to decide
on the size of the budget appropriation
for higher education, Frye said that the
administration's "best estimate" was a
0 percent increase in dollars for the
University. With inflation rising at
nearly 6 percent the state ap-
propriation the same as last year's
means an actual loss of revenue for the
University.
IN ADDITION, the University has
had $1 million effectively cut from its
budget because of the lack of interest
earned from the $19 million fourth
quarter payment the state withheld
from the University. Administrators
are still concerned about the state's
ability to eventually repay the
borrowed money.
Frye said he firmly believes that a
faculty salary increase at least equal to
the rate of inflation is "urgently
required."
"There will be no better opportunity

The jury is finally out. After a month-
long trial that began more than a year
after two students were murdered in a
University dormitory, the fate of ac-
cused murderer Leo Kelly is in the han-
ds of a jury that will begin deliberations
this morning.
Claiming that sympathy toward Leo
Kelly should have no bearing on the
jury's decision, Prosecuting Attorney
Lynwood Noah gave his closing
arguments yesterday at the trial of the
man accused of last year's Good Friday
slayings of two students at Bursley
Hall.
"THIS IS A tragic case," Noah said,
"but you as jurors cannot take it
tragically. There is absolutely no

reason for you (the jury) to be sym-
pathetic toward Leo Kelly."
Before a packed courtroom, defense
attorney William Waterman, in his
closing remarks yesterday, accused
Noah of "trying to empassion" the jury
against his client. "This incident was
senseless and tragic,' Waterman said,
later describing Kelly as "a tragic vic-
tim."
In his closing address, Noah scoffed
at the claim by the defense that Kelly
was insane at the time of the shootings.
"The defense is pleading temporary in-
sanity. Thatsounds like immunity for a
day," he said.
"MR. KELLY is sane, he is guilty of
the murder, with premediation and
deliberation, and we ask you to return a
verdict of guilty for both counts," Noah

Mysterious
scholar'
arrested
at W. Quad

By GREG BRUSSTAR
A man who had claimed he was an "artist in
residence" at Syracuse University and who had sat in
on several University communications courses was
arrested yesterday in his West Qtad room. Apparen-
tly neither his credentials-nor the checks he had
written to "help out" University undergraduates-
was legitimate.
The man, who had given his name as "Dr. Donald
Clay," was arrested yesterday in Cambridge House
for passing bad checks, but not before he had
managed to give what was by all accounts a convin-
cing portrayal of a visiting professor with a warm
heart and open pocketbook.
"WE FOUND no academic credentials that he
claimed to be correct," Walt Stevens, the Univer-
sity's director of security said of Clay. "We suspect

that he's involved in questionable activities
throughout the United States." Stevens said Clay was
wanted in Florida for "violation of check laws."
On Tuesday, according to a secretary in the com-
munications department office, Clay walked into the
department office, presented a business card from
Syracuse University, and asked if he could sit in on
some classes. The secretary, Alexandra Cun-
ningham, said she directed Clay to a telecom-
munications class taught by Profs. Frank Beaver and -
Hazen Schumacher.
"Beaver introduced him (Clay) and he stayed for
the class period while I talked," said Schumacher.
"At the end of the class, I asked him if he had any
comments to make and what he said seemed to make
some sense." Schumacher also said that Clay spoke
