:i *.?? :J i CENTRAL MICHIGAN UNIVERSITY, ML PLEASANT,.MICHIGAN ^Friday, January 10,1969 WRESTLERS Hosf DUAL MEET SATURDAY Student Senators approYed a plan to finance through student fees the proposed multi-purpose stadium facility, at their regular meeting Monday night. President William B. Boyd presented the proposal to Senators at the request of student government leaders, ■ At the meeting he said student fees would be increased from $5 to a maximum of $18 per student per semester to finance construction-of the multi-purpose facility. No Referendum Senate leaders indicated there are no plans to conduct a student referendum on the increase in fees. Boyd will seek approval from the Board of Trustees to ask permission from'* the state legislature to sell self-liquidating bonds that will finance construction of the stadium. ■ President Boyd said he will seek authorization for $5 million in bonds in order to provide leeway for the proposed domed stadium even though construction costs are not expected to exceed much more than $4 million. Planning Leeway Needed "We need a little leeway in planning the stadium," Boyd said. "If construction totals less than $5 million then we will seek only what it will really cost. But if a definite limit were set and the construction bid exceeded that limit by only $50,000 or so we would be hindered," Boyd explained. If approval is granted by the state legislature to sell liquidating bonds student fees would be increased a minimum of $5 per student for the fall Heavy Snow Fall Adds to" Carnival Pi Kappa Phi's third annual Winter Carnival officially began last night with the Mitch Ryder concert in Finch Fieldhouse. The all-university event, which includes, winter games and a snow statue competition, was blessed this year with many inches of snow and the completed statues will be televised by WW-TV Channel 9 in Cadillac. •-...-, Students are invited to ice skate at Island Park tonight and to participate in, or view, the various games that are scheduled to begin at noon tomorrow on the football field. Snow Princess Kris Skingley and her court will be presented tomorrow night at the Winter Carnival dance which starts at 9:30 in Finch Fieldhouse. Winners of the statue contest and games will be announced and trophies awarded during the dance. Dress for the dance is informal. semester. Based on this proposal the income from the 11,500 students currently enrolled would total approximately 57,500 per semester. If fees were increased $10 per student the income for each semester would total approximately $115,000. The bonds would self liquidate after 30 years. Other Financial Sources The stadium would be financed by other sources of revenue Boyd said. He indicated additional funds will come from gate receipts, convention and rental fees from use of the enclosed stadium. He also said additional funds would be raised through the Alumni Development Fund. Once the multi-purpose events building is built Boyd said a policy board would have to be established to govern the uses of the facility. He said students should have a majority membership on such a policy board. Boyd said the policy board probably would have responsibility for scheduling all events except inter-collegiate athletic events and certain other university events such as commencement. At lummy Commencemeftf In other action student senators also learned plans could be finalized for a proposed carrier hanced through revenue saved when classes were dismissed a week earlier due to a flu-like epidemic which hit Central just before the scheduled Christmas vacation. ' ■ "The carrier current station can be financed through raw food savings" Boyd said. "We will move as fast as it is technically possible," Boyd said. . Student Government Guidelines > Student government will be requested to recx ommend guidelines for governing the proposed new student radio station. Rick Kedzierski, Barnard senator asked Boyd if students would have any control of the carrier current. Boyd answered that, "Control would be analogous to CMU Life's privileges." The carrier current will serve only the dormitories. Boyd mentioned that money made through advertising would possibly go to an elaboration of the carrier current system.
