Night Editor-JAMES T. HERALD
The Union Board of Governors, by
the proposed amendments to the
Union constitution, has attempted to
solve the question which arose last
spring as to what effect the inctease
from $6 to $10 in the Union portion of
the University tuition fee would have
on the requirements and cost of life
Life memberships which have al-
ready bsen granted would naturally
be unaffected by the amendment. In
the future, life memberships would
be granted upon the payment of four
of the present Union elements of the
tuition fee, or by payments totalling
$50. By the latter method, partial
payments on a life membership would
be credited, as - " old payments of the
increased Union lee. Upon his com-
pletion of the payment of the amounts
required to become a life member,
every student will become exempt
from paying further Union fees in
his tuition. Freshmen entering this
fall w rvld, automatically become life
members upon the completion of four'
years in the University.
A most liberal policy of allowing
full credit on life memberships for
the payment of the enlarged tuition,
as well as for partial life membership
payments, has been suggested. These
amendments are fair both to 'the,
Union and to the men of the Univer-
sity; they should meet with the im-
mediate approval of the students.
