Questions On Tuition
Proposed For Students
In an attempt to determine the
effort of a $60 increase in tuition,
a student questionnaire may be
prepared before second semester
classes begin, announced Chan
cellor Clifford Hardin in a fac

The simple questionnaire would
be filled out during registration
and would include the following
information. What effect the $60
increase would have on student
enrollment at the university?

Other tfions would determine
the numb of students who would
have to use the proposed student

their college education.
