Tuition Rise
Is Scheduled
$100 and $235
Semester Fees
Students returning to the Uni-
versity in'the fall will find that
their tuition fee has been raised-
$10 per semester for Michiganresi-
dents and $20 for non-residents.
The Board of Regents approved
the increase at.its June meeting.
Tuition for a Michigan resident is
now $100 per semester and $235
for a non-resident student.-
Last increase in fees was in 1953
when tuition was raised to $90 for
residents and $215 for non-resi-
Expect 1,250 More Students
Combined with an expected fall
enrollment of 19,750, the increase
in fees is expected to bring an ad-
ditional $400,000 to the University.
Income from student fees and oth-
er sources will be increased from
$5;824,000 in 1954-55 to $6,488,-
400 for 1955-56.
Along with a state appropriation
of $23,725,000, the increase made
possible a General Funds Budget
for University Operations of $30;-
213,400 which the Regents ap-
proved at their June meeting.
The new budget is $3,336,404
larger than the 1954-55 budget.
The state appropriation is $2,672,-
000 larger than that received from
the Legislature in 1954-55.
University President Harlan H.
Hatcher reported that 89 new fac-
ulty members will be added to the
staff next year, bringing the total
to 1,449.
President Hatcher said fees at
the University have changed from
time to time but haven't kept pace
with changes in the economy. The
University has never been the top
one in'fees, he said, but has kept
near the top in fees at state sup-
ported universities.
Condenmation Proceedings
Also at the June meeting, the
Regents gave authority to Univer-
sity Vice-President Wilbur K. Pier-
pont to proceed with legal conden-
nation proceedings against prop-
erty owners who have refused to
sell at the appraisal price proper-
ty needed for construction of the
new Student Activities Building.
Pierpont reported that nine of
the 12 'lots needed had been Pur-
chased. Total appraised value of
the property was approximately
$300,000. The property is located
directly south of the Student Pub-
lications Building.
Funds Bill
passed unanimously late yester-
day a $31,882,000,000 military
funds bill.
It rejected President Eisenhow-
er's plans for a 22,000-man slash
in the Marine Corps, and added
46 million dollars to maintain the
corps at 215,000 men.

strict control of the armed forces.
The military were instructed by
their supreme commander, Army

Reports indicated that a three-
man military junta would replace
Peron as dictator, but that Peron
would be a member of the junta.

New Parking Plan



Charges for parking in University parking lots were approved by
the Board of Regents at its June meeting.
A flexible program designed to meet divergent needs was adopt-
ed. Eligible persons may either obtain a year'$ permit for $25 or
make use of meters that will be installed on all University lots in
the campus area not requiring a permit. Rates of five cents for
each two hours or 25 cents for all day have been set.
University Vice-President Wilbur K. Pierpont was granted au-
thority to work out additional details in the program and make minor
adjustments as conditions change.
Regulations on the use of the metered lots will be developed,
this summer. They will be open to non-permit holders, visitors, stu-
dents and others.
Faculty Vote Split
A vote of the faculty taken at the May 23 F.acuity Senate meet-
ing showed 155 voting for a charge for a parking permit, 146 in favor
of meters and five who voted for neither.
Pierpont said at the Regents' meeting that some who work at
the University drive regularly while others drive but one or twice a
week. The ,parking plan recommended to the Regents and adopted.
was designed to accommodate drivers in both groups.'
Adoption of the plan was the first step in a program for improv-
ing parking facilities in the main campus area, long a perplexing
problem here and on other campuses.
'U' Plans Structure
A second step, to get under way soon, is the planning of a park*
ing structure, with construction tentatively scheduled for 1956. Rev-
enue from the permits and the meters will be sufficient, it. is believed,
to permit a start of construction during 1956.
The action followed a long study on the parking problem. A con-
tinuation of the program is hoped to allow a gradual enlargement of
parking facilities on the campus.
The charge for parking permits and the use or parking meters
will be limited to areas of the main campus. No study has been given.

F igure Hits
6200 Point'
Summer Session classes com-
menced yesterday, with 6,228stu
dents enrolled in local campus
courses and nearly 1,800 attend-
ing classes at eight summer
The figure marks an increase of
469 over last summer.
A large number of the Summer
Session students are teachers ful-
filling requirements of their
teaching certificates, according to
Prof. Willard C. Olson, Dean of
the School of Education.
Under Michigan law, students
graduating *th bachelors degrees
receive "provisional" teaching-cer-
tificates. In order to get a perma-
nent certificate, the teacher must
return to school for ten hours of
additional work.
Of ti. e two thousand or more
teachers here in the summer,
many return to school because
"four years is insufficient time
to prepare a professional person,"
Dean Olson explained. {

Construction workers of Laborf
ers Local 959, AFL, voted lasts
night to reject a nine-cent pAy
raise and resume their week-old
strike that has halted all construc-
tion in Washtenaw County.
Pickets were planned for con-
struction sites this morning. Pick-
ets had been withdrawn yesterday
after a tentative agreement be-
tween union officials and tha
Washtenaw Contractors Associa-
tion over the week-end.
A difference of three cents saep
arted contractors and workers
since the walkout last Tuesday
The contractors offered an eight-
cent raise retroactive to MayI
with another two-cent hike ef-
fective Nov. 1. But the union de-
manded 11 cents.
Vote 119 to 87 for Strike
Last night's vote, taken in an
atmosphere of heated tempers and
hot, humid air at the Labo all
at 208 W. Liberty St., showed work-
ers in favor of holding out for the
11-cent boost by 119 to 87 wih
seven ballots void.
Union officials and the contra-
tors group had come to a tenta-
tive agreement on a nine-cent raise
retroactive to May 1 and a one-
year contract in a 17hour sessie
in Circuit Court.

Among the construction proJets

Pay Raise Only Obstacle
Lone remaining disagreement
between the workers and the con-
tractors concerns the pay raise.
The contractors agreed to unin
demands for three cents in health
and welfare and a one-year con
tract. The contractors also offered
another ten-cent pay increase in
May, 1956.
Laborers currently draw $2.29 an.
hour. They are asking for $2.40.
An internal dispute ocurred n.
the union last week after a union
official had tentatively approved
the contractors' offer. Reports'
that the strike was to be settled
