Gov. wants tuition freeze
By KERY MURAKAMI
Gov. James Blanchard yesterday urged
board members of the state's universities
and colleges to "do everything possible to
freeze tuition for Michigan students."
Blanchard, in a letter sent to the board
members yesterday, did not mention a
warning by state budget director Robert
Naftaly last week that the governor may
veto parts of the state higher education
budget, which was passed by the
legislature last month, if the schools do
not freeze in-state tuition this fall.
BUT TOM Scott, deputy press secretary
for the governor, said yesterday that
Blanchard is "very concerned" about the
cost of higher education in the state, and a
veto is possible.
"The University of Michigan is one of
the three most expensive public univer-
sities in the country," Scott noted.
Blanchard, in the letter, claimed that the
state's appropriations increases to the
schools, which range from between 11 and
13 percent, is more than enough to make
up the cost of inflation. The University
received a 13 percent hike this year.
University administrators, however,

"Even if people are not interested in Krishna
consciousness, people are interested in different
facets of it," he said.
"Some people take us as token and think that
looking at us is neat," he said, but "but most
people are courteous and interested."
