THE TUITION freeze will result in
the University running a budget deficit
of $1.4 million.
Regent Deane Baker (R-Ann Arbor)

said the regents had an obligation not to
operate the University on a budget

Nederlander was referring to a
request from ,Gov. James Blanchard,
that all state colleges and universities
which froze in-state tuition levels would
receive in exchange a 10 percent in-
crease in state aid. The state
legislature vetoed this plan, but still
applied political pressure to keep costs

Both Hart and Jackson have refused to drop out of
the race and will make major speeches at the con-
vention even though Mondale is comfortably over
the 1,967 delegates needed for a first-ballot victory.
But Mondale has more to contend with than Hart
and Jackson to make the convention run smoothly.
Yesterday, in a move toward more control of the
Democratic party, Mondale ousted party chairman
Charles Manatt. Party sources have said former
Budget Director Bert Lance is his likely successor.
Lance would strengthen the Mondale campaign in
the South where it is weak. The former Carter ad-
ministration budget director also has been the key
player in trying to make peace between Mondale
and Jesse Jackson in the campaign.
Robert Beckel, Mondale's campaign manager,
said Mondale would meet with Lance in South Lake
Tahoe, Calif., to discuss his role in the Democratic

Two hundred miles from Lake Tahoe, the band in-
