Expansion of the Educational Op

funded by an increase in student tui

Chalmers 'G. Norris, University

University of 581,205,000.
The proposed appropriation. which

Norris did not say how

budget submitted to Shapp by the

by the Governor.
This request, however, reflected
a reimbursement for budget increases

1969-70 appropriations by the state
were not changed for the current fiscal
year, disappointing University officials

Norris said that the increase in ap
propriations. if passed by the legisla
ture, would be used primarily for in
creased expenses necessitated by new
students. He said he expects an addi

enrolled at University Park during the
coming academic year.
Norris said the increased enroll
ment would necessitate approximately
$4 million in direct salaries for addi
tional teaching faculty. Maintenance
and operational expenses resulting from
opening of new buildings to accommo
date the larger student body would re
quire approximately $2 million.
An increase in state retirement
benefits for faculty and staff would re
quire $1 million in the next fiscal year,
Norris estimated, and an additional SI
million would be used for increases in
unemployment compensation tax, insur
ance and legal costs.
S 4 Million
These expenses, totaling roughly $8
million, would leave less than s•t mil
lion for new programs. - We must either
find the money (for these new pro
grams) or not do them," Norris said.
Among the planned- programs
which may have to be reappraised is
student aid. A request for $l.B million
specially earmarked for EOP expansion
was not included in the budget appro
priation released by Shapp.
The University's request was to
