Vol. 66 No. 47 1984 CM LIFTS 16pages Mount Pleasant. Mich. 48859 Wednesday, January 23.1984 aw byROBISELER LIFE Managing Editor Approval is expected for a new set of operating bylaws by the Board of Trustees when it meets in Detroit Thursday. ^ If approved, the document will be sent to Kileen Jennings. University counsel, for legal review, Board Secretary Richard Millersaid. The Assessment and Development Committee has jurisdiction over revising the current bylaws and has called for a vote on the bylaws which last month were said to be "in terrible shape " by Miller. The committee received input from the Academic Senate and the Administration before the last Board meeting Dec. 2 and will focus on those changes when it meets at 9 a m. before the regular meeting at 10:30a m . Miller said The Administration's contracting authority for University goods and services will have the most attention. Miller said. "The Board has to be satisfied that when it delegates authority for contracting that it still retains the power to carry out the direction of the University," he said. "The Administration has focused its attention on being able to carry out the directions of the University without going for frequent referrals to the Board for approval." Miller said it is the Administration's intent to have the accepted practices it uses reflected in the bylaw language. Miller said that is an area the Board is especially interested in. "Right from the beginning the members of the committee have felt it was important to examine the existing policy (of contracting) and see the Board retains a working authority on University policy issues," Miller said. The Academic Senate is interested in how the new bylaws focus ontheacademicaffairsof the University. Miller said. Once the bylaws are adopted, it does not mean they will be unchanged. Miller added. "We'll havea change in membership and a change m views." he said. Miller said previously the current bylaws do not cover anv extensive ways of how to operate for the public and for the Board The new by laws are expected to establish commit tee structure- delegation of authority for the officers of the Board, dutv and authority of the Trustees and procedures for special and closed meetings. In other action Provost John Cantelon is expected to provide the Board with a progress report regarding the merger of the Michigan Molecular Instituteof Midland with CMU Miller said discussion between the two groups has been "open and constructive."

Drop/Add abusers receive bills early by PAUL MASON LIFE Ass t. News Editor Students who added 10 or more credits at Drop and Add this semester should be prepared to pay tuition bills soon Drop ami Add invoices will be sent today to students who added 10 or more credit hours to their class schedules Tuition payments must he made by next Wednesday or students will be wundrawn from the University. Deborah Barker, senior coonhnator of Receivable Accounting, said. Barker said 183 students added 10 or more credits at Drop and Adil tins semester The purpose of the early billing is to eliminate the number of students who abuse the Drop and Add system. Some students register for a few credits and then add a large number at Drop and Add to delay tuition payment. Marker said the billing is fair, even to students who added the credits because they had incomplete schedules. "If they had been able to get the classes at the regular time, payment in full would have been required at that time anyways." Barker said. Another reason for the early billing was to collect money faster from students, she said "We always try to collect money as soon as possible. Dollars were out there uncollected, and students were benefiting from the classes six to 44 We're not sure whether it's the same 180 students or a different group of people who are abusing the system. - Deborah Barker senior coordinator of Receivable Accounting _T3F eight weeks." Barker said "It's not fair to those students whodopay on time." Students who added 10 or more credits but have financial aid to cover the tuition costs will not receive invoices.

' '.nil »>cc "Airport" page 15 Cost overrun projected at library byTOMWICKHAM LIFE Copy Editor The impact of an estimated S100.000 cost overrun for the Mount Pleasant Veterans Memorial Library expansion project will not be known until const ruction bids are received in April. Originally earmarked at SI 2 million the 22,000 square foot of the exist ing building at 305 S. University St. could cost more than SI,373,055 for construction and various other fees. City Manager Tom Martin said The cost overrun was announced Monday at a special city budget work session by city and library officials Martin authorized a bonding attorney Tuesday to begin application for the SI .2 million in bonds for the project. Sale of the bonds is expected to be completed before construction begins on the expansion in April, he said. Bids will be solicited from contractors this spring. Additional revenues should come from S50.000 in interest <m the bonds and S20.000 from a library building reserve account. Martin said. "You want to have the bonds sold before the contract is set," Martin said. "After the contract is awarded we will know what the major cost factor will be." Two factors attributed to the cost overrun estimated by library officials are moving and rental fees for the library to relocate during the expansion period and planned furniture and equip ment purchases for the new addilion, Kvald Kruut. director of Library Services, said The current library building will be closed from April 16 to Dec 30 for construction No temporary location has been chosen yet by the library board, he said, but the board could pay up to S2.000 a month in rent *See "Library" — page 15 Suicide confirmed in student death The CM U student w ho died over the weekend took his own life by asphyxiating himself.
