Caught on the court
HENRY JOHNSON, a former starter for the University of Texas
basketball team finds basketball has been very, very bad to
him-recently he was in court for playing on the court. Johnson, whose
trouble started when he lost his academic eligibility to play midway through
the 1980-81 season, was arrested while playing in a University gym last
week and booked on misdemeanor criminal trespass charges. Justice of the
Peace Guy Herman, however, called the case "a waste of the court's time"
and set a personal recognizance bond for Johnson, who was released last
Thursday. "I don't think the legislature meant for that criminal trespass
statute to be used to give people six months in jail and a $1,000 fine for
shooting hoops ...," said Herman. School officials strictly enforce a rule
against use of the gym by non-students and Johnson did not have proper
authorization at the time of his illicit free-throws. Hubert Gill, Johnson's at-
torney, said, "It seems like a hell of a way to treat a former basketball
player." lr

expected to dr(
an uncomfortable degree of elitism,"
he added.
Both Frye and Sjogren said the
reductions are unfortunate, but
necessary, if the University wants to
maintain its high quality. "An
enrollmentsdecline is not only
inevitable, but desirable," Frye said,
explaining that a smaller student body
is necessary if the staff size is
decreased. He said it was "urgent to
protect the quality of the University."
ALSO complicating the problem, ac-
cording to Sjogren is the decrease in the
number of 18-year-olds nationwide.
Sjogren agreed that the high cost of
education is a serious problem for the
"We all get very concerned when
college choice is affected by financial
reasons," he said.
"This is the first time since World
War II that a significant number of
students couldn't attend (college) for
financial reasons.
"Before, ifsa student was the least bit
imaginative, he could do it. Today,
there are numbers of cases where any
amount of creativity ,won't help,"
Sjogren added.
IN ADDITION, Sjogren said that his
office "came dangerously close to run-
ning out of people," and almosttdidn't
fill their quota of 4,380 freshmen.
"We had more applications this year
than last, but the percentage accepted
was lower," he said.
The quota was met, but only by ad-
mitting almost all thepeople who were

wait-listed, Sjogren added. He said,
however, that the quality of incoming
students didn't fall, and, in fact, is
moderately higher, because the studen-
ts have higher test scores, though
slightly lower class ranks.
SJOGREN said the yield rate (the
number of accepted students who
decide to attend the University) for
1982-83 fell from 69 to 64 percent for in-
state students, and from 42 to 35 percent
of out-of-state students. He attributed
the decline to the high cost of attending
the University.
Frye said the proportions of General
Fund revenue coming from state ap-
propriations and tuition are "con-
verging," while tuition formerly played
a much smaller role in filling the
University's coffers.
"The portion of the General Fund
coming from the state has dropped over
the past decade from 60 to 50 percent,
while the portion coming from students'
tuition has risen from 30 to 40 percent,"
he said. "The state cannot expect us to
keep an institution of this quality if that
trend continues," he added.
"What alarms me is there's not a lot
of elasticity," Frye said. "There's just
not a surplus of qualified in-state
students, based on this information,"
he added.
According to Frye, even though the
enrollment decrease was not by ad-
ministrative design, a number of
schools and departments are
deliberately cutting back. Mims poin-
ted to the College of Pharmacy and the
School of Dentistry as examples of this.
