'U' postpones decision
By KERY MURAKAMI
University students will have to
wait until the beginning of August to
find out how much they'll be paying
for tuition next fall.
The University's executive officers
decided last Wednesday to postpone
asking the Board of Regents to ap-
prove a University budget - in-

following the legislature's progress,
said it had become tied up in non-
budgetary matters - such as in-
creasing tax revenues to help pay for
renovating Cobo Hall - and did not
expect them to meet until tomorrow.
Depending on how much work the
legislators have done informally
during the recess, Palmer said the
University's state appropriations
could be decided on Wednesday, but
cautioned that it could stretch into
