Civil Service Drive

LANSING, May 8.-(A')-Clarence
V. Smazel, office manager for the
Michigan Merit System Association,
said today the organization's cam-
paign to amend the State constitu-
tion to protect Civil Service from
tampering by politicians is away to
a flying start.
Michigan has been blanketed with
16,000 petitions which, if signed in
full, would bear 350,000 signatures,
he declared.
The first petition returned came
from Mrs. Craig C. Miller of Mar-
shall, former president of the Mich-
igan Federation of Women's Clubs,
Smazel declared. He added that she
received the blank petition from t o
association's offices Monday morn-
ing, and had placed it in the mails
Monday afternoon bearing its full
quota of 25 signatures.
Smazel declared Association offi-
cials have obtained promises of as-
sistance from many out-state Repub-
lican and Democratic leaders, but
that officials of the two parties in
Lansing have indicated they were
not enthusiastic about the program.

'The only decrease which ean be

Added Services
"It must be remembered that the
University Committee on Fees raised
the tuition to secure more money for
added services rendered to the stu-
dents, not to make Michigan an 'ex-
clusive school' or to keep the enroll-
ment down," Wagner declared.
Michigan State College has upped
its resident tuition to $40 per quar-

par with the University.
