Changes made • SAC budget III -By Robert Kirk Dr. Roland H. Nelson Jr., presl. dent of the college, has approved the 1967-68 student activities bud&, et with several major modifica .. tions. The budget presented to Dr. Nelson was based on the reevaluated recommendations made by the Student Activities Commit. tee this year along with the amounts recommended by last year's committee, The greatest decrease was a cut 01 $3,000 below what this committee recommended for the Dance club. The committee rec· ommended $8,000 for the Dance Club, of which Dr. Nelson ap. prov~d $5,000. Also, there was a decrease of $500 in the amount allocated for Student Government. A recommendation of $3,- 000 had been made for this activity, with an approval 01 $2,500. this money was spent, as RPI has the lowest tuition in the state. j'so we are not playing with a lot of extra cash." Dr. Nelson said <Cthese funds are not from any special student fees. They, in fact, come from tuition. What this means is they come out of instructional money, My feeling is that if we are going to take $50,000 out of instructional money we should be reasonably certain that the majority of these activities come under more in4 structional categories." Mayor invited to attend Homecoming festivities Increases made by the presi4 dent included $750 more for the lecture-concert series, $725 more for Cobblestone, and $375 more for Spectrum. Also, the budget was increased over the recommendations of $500 more for American Light Opera Company, Richmond symphony increased $600, and Richmond Public Forum given $550 over the recommended amount. "I WOULD LIKE to stress that as far as the ultimate decision, It was mine, and I do look to Dean Renneisen because in my judgment he is the expert here as to what is a wise expenditure of our money," Dr. Nelson stated. He further cited that $50,000 would hire five new instructors and this was a predominant factor in his decisions for increasing and decreasing the committee's recommendations in some fn4 stances. IN CO~1l\IENTING on the reo duction in the amount recom~ mended by the committee for Dance Club, Dr. Nelson said, <CIt seems to me this is the kind of activity the college is only eX4 Mayor Morrill Crowe will be among the guests here during Homecoming Wee ken d next week.
