$6 Fee Raise Proposed

$6 Fee Raise Proposed

Student Association fees will be raised 56 to a total of $19 if recommendations from Executive are accepted by the SGM at 7 pm tomorrow night.

Two dollars will go to the general maintenance fund, said the president of the Students' Association, Gerald Curry.

This account which provides funds for he running costs of the Union, ran at a light deficit last year.

"The increase will mean no review will be necessary for about five years," Gerard said.

The other $4 of the increase will go to the capital building fund which will now receive $7 of the total fee.

"It is an arbitrary figure," Gerard said, "but it is very hard to arrive at a precise figure."

Gerard said costs for buildings had risen sharply since the Sub was completed in 1958.

"The cost was $560,000 while the present extensions will cost $380,000," he said.

"The extension won't be paid for until 1971."

"We tried to work out the amount of the increase in terms of what facilities would be needed in 10 years time.

"There has been a demand for things like a swimming pool, squash courts, an increase in the size of the Memorial Theatre as well as scope for cultural activities like a pottery room."
