The Campus Recreation Center
asked the Committee for Fees
Allocation for a nearly $ 1.32 increase
each semester for student fees, but
Tuesday CFA recommended about a 13

CFA members said they were look

the large increase in student fees, stem

Unions’ budget request
Matt Eickman, CFA member, said
it was ‘“wise for students’ interest to
wait another year.”
The increase in funds is mainly for
administrative costs and utilities, which

Members also said those increases

clerk pulled out his own weapon and
chased the two boys off firing a shot
in the air outside the store.
After the boys fled, police caught
up to them near the scene. They were

Description aids request
A clerk’s calm disposition and
good eye helped catch the man who
robbed the Tanning Zone on North
66th Street just before 10 p.m.
The robber waited in front of the
store until the last customer left. Then
he went inside, threatened the clerk
and left with the money, Beam said.
Using the clerk’s description of
the suspect and his vehicle, police
tracked the robber to the Days Inn on
Northwest 12th Street by 1:30 a.m.
Matthew G. Birchett, 21, of
Dewitt, was arrested for robbery.
