EhEr: Senate committee adopts
a spending plan for 'U'

- By GEORGEA KOVANIS
Budget bills on the floor of the state
legislature call for an increase in state
aid to the University, but ad-
ministrators say the boost will not be
enough to avert a tuition hike.
Last week the Senate Appropriations
Committee approved a $182.1 million
allocation to the University, up from
the $163 million appropriated last year.
The House version calls for $1.8 million
less, and once the bills are passed in
both houses a conference committee
will meet to iron out the differences.
When the budget process began last
fall, the University asked for a $40
million increase in state aid. That
request has since been trimmed to $26
million, and it appears that the final
hike will be just under $20 million.
Six of the state's 13 colleges -
Wayne State, Eastern Michigan, Ferris
State, Central Michigan, and Western
Michigan Universities and Lake
Superior State College - have announ-
ced that they will not raise tuition next
year.
Tuition freezes at other schools will
"certainly be a factor we consider when
we look at tuition," said University

Kennedy
... predicts tuition hike
Vice President for State Relations
Richard Kennedy. "I'm not saying
we're going to follow suit."
Kennedy predicted that students will
face a tuition hike in September but
that it will be less than last year's 9.5
percent increase.
State aid comprises only half of the
University's general fund, and most of
the remainder of the fund comes from
tuition.

Student
* volunteers
hit the
streets to
register
voters

By THOMAS HRACH
Hundreds of college students will be knocking on doors this
summer in a nationwide effort to increase the number of
registered voters.
Organized by the Public Interest Research Group in
Michigan and similar groups in other states, the program is
designed to get students involved in politics while building up
the voter lists.
"THE EFFORT harkens back to a time when students
were active in civil rights projects," said Michael Farady, a
staff member at the National Student Campaign for Voter
Registration in Boston. "The goal .. .is to once again involve
students in the electoral process."
Voter registration has been a major issue in this year's
presidential elections. Rev. Jesse Jackson has been credited
with drawing thousands of new voters to the polls, and
organizers say the student program is designed to continue to
register those who have not voted in previous elections.
The Boston office is collecting the names of students in-
terested in working on the registration drive, and the names

will be given to local organizations which sponsor such
projects.
IN THE Ann Arbor area, volunteers will be assigned to
groups like the League of Women Voters, the NAACP, Plan-
ned Parenthood, and HumanSERVE.
"Our strategy is to offer registration to the disenfranchised
members of the community, like women, minorities and the
poor," said Roseanne Handler, Michigan coordinator for
HumanSERVE.
Signing up for the program and being placed in one of the
organizations means that the students will be committed to
becoming deputy registrars in their communities.
Organizers hope these students will help provide a strong
campus registration project in the fall before November's
general elections.
"IT'S THE DUTY of the deputy registrars to get to other
areas of the community other than around the campuses,"
said Caroline Hartman, coordinator for Pirgim's local
registration drive. "Pirgim is acting as the center for voter

Scientists examine artifacts at Custer Battlefield

CROW AGENCY, Mont. (AP) - Ar-
chaeologists and volunteers armed with
shell casings, in the first days of their
survey of the Custer Battlefield.
"We're finding 10 times as much as
we thought," said Jim Court, battlefield
superintendent.
SO FAR the only human remains un-
covered are bones from a toe. Court
said yesterday that two Park Service
archaeologists and 12 volunteers have
found 200 to 300 shell casings, the metal
backstrap from a Colt pistol and a piece
of a leather bridle strap.
Since field work began Monday, the
survey has focused on the Calhoun Hill
area, where Lt. James Calhoun, who

was Lt. Col. George Custer's brother-in-
law, and Capt. James Keogh fought to
the finish with their troops on June 25,
1876.
The hill is about a half-mile east of
the Last Stand area where Custer him-
self is believed to have died.
THE ARTIFACTS don't appear
significant in themselves, Court said,
but the numbers of shell casings and
their concentration may say a lot about
how the battle was fought.
Casings from Springfield rifles in-
dicate where a cavalry skirmish line
may have tried to hold out against
overpowering numbers of Sioux and
Cheyenne Indians, Court said.

A flattened slug found near one of the
original burial sites may have been a
bullet that killed or wounded a trooper.
"We know it hit something," Court
said.
SOME LIVE rounds, possibly left by
a fleeing soldier, were also uncovered
in the area.
Groups of Henry cartridges found in
one area indicated an Indian position.
"They found so many Henry cartridges
the archaeologists started calling it
Henryville," Court said.
It is pretty easy to tell who fired
what on Custer Battlefield, Court said,
because the soldiers used only
Springfields. The Indians used anything

they could get their hands on, including
some Henry. Even a musket ball was
found on the field, Court said.
Custer's last battle remains one of the
great mysteries of the American Indian
wars because none of the troopers who
were under his command survived. One
question the survey hopes to answer is
the fate of Company F. The bodies of its
members were never found.
Accounts from survivors of other
companies led by Maj. Marcus Reno
and Capt. Frederick Benteen indicated
that the soldiers from Company E were
fighting in a coulee near Deep
Ravine.
