Student Costs hfiard a variety of views Mon day about how the state should re ct to rising college costs They included suggestions to keep tuition at current levels to close the gap between public and private colleges tuition and to authorize a marketing study on college costs A j The meeting was jthe second of tm Scheduled public hearings a Seventeen persons testified Including representatives of the budget bureau state school supt Michael Bakalis student group spokesmen representatives of public and private universities and spokesmen for state business and labor groups The testimony which seemed to generate the most interest was that of Richard Carlson the state budget bureaus assistant director for education The budget bureaus under direct control of Gov Daniel Walker Carlson said that Illinois tax payers and students often get a poor return for their invest ment in higher education Carlson also made these contentions The money the state spends on higher education is spent in equitably because students at the public senior universities pel from the state the dollar equi Budgef bureau official raps nonpolicy on financial aid valent of a Pontiac Porsche or MercedesBenz while students at the public junior colleges private colleges and persons who do not attend college get very little from the state It is unwise for taxpayers to invest their money and for students to invest their time in expensive programs when there are few job openings in many of those fields That of taxpayers mnney that goes into training a doctor at public universities is wasted every time a new MD leaves the state which he said happens quite often Illinois current tuition and financial aid policy is really a nonpolicy since it is not ra tional consistent or non discriminatory Carlson said he was not argu ing for any particular tuition and financial aid policy Spokesmen for student groups and some public senior universities asked the com mittee to hold the line on rising tuitions to ease the crunch on middle income students Gail Holmberg a sophomore at Illinois State University and a member of the higher board student advisory committee said Financial aid cannotbe used as an excuse to raise tui tion The bureaucracy ineffi ciency and red tape of the present aid programs are get ting in the way of students She also said Requiring a student to acquire heavy debt to get through college too clearly resembled ind eritured servitude University of Illinois President John Corbally Jr said Low tuition is the most efficient form if scholarship aid Those who say low tuition subsidizes the wealthy ignore the fact that its benefits are available to all Corbally added that he did not think current tuition rates are as massive and oppressive as has been said Southern Illinois University sent a written statement asking that the board explore a step bystep transition to a tuition free system It also asked for a review of the current levels of state aid to private colleges Representatives of the states private colleges and universities asked the committee to lessen the gap between public and private sector tuitions Father John Contelyou presi dent of DePaul University and chairman of the higher boards NonPublic Advisory com mittee said All public in stitution students are subsidiz ed while only the needy ones at private institutions are All students should be able to attend freely the institution of their choice without the influence of artificial prices or inequitable subsidies The subsidy should be centered in the student not the institution Bakalis said that because the committee lacks enough hard data on which to base financial aid decisions it should approve a marketing study on the effects of costs on college costs Bakalais said While I realize that the decision to enroll in an institution of higher education is not quite the same as a decision to buy a tube of toothpaste there are valid techniques and tools in the field of marketing research that could well be applied to these matters Stanley Johnson president of the state AFLCIO told the committee We would be ap preciative if you would hold the line on costs Robert Beckwith of the Illinois State Chamber of Commerce said that public sector tuition actually has decreased hi recent years because Hhey have not been raised fifkeep pace wiih tuition He urged that tuition at state universities be comparable at similar Midwestern institutions ;
