The vote is of symbolic importance. It should be somthing that we work for in the future. It's very symbolic for the student regent to bave that vote. The real impact the student regent has is being able to talte what is decided at the regent meetings to the students ,and explain the significance of those decisions. 1 also inform the rest <>f the board of student opinion on decisions before IMy are made. I'm conducting open forums on camp11S, lite the one we had today, prior to each regent meeting. Students talk about whatever they want, IMn I present a su.mmarized version of that forum to the regents. A.t the forums 1 can e:~plain the board 's function.

'Ibe budget allocates more than $110,000 for a " radio upgrade" including a power increase from 10 to 10,000 watts for KAXR, NA.U's FM radio station. The increase complies with new Federal Communications Commission regulations requiring FM stations not using at least 100 watts to open their frequencies for bid to another station, said Dale Hoskins, the station ·s faculty adviser. Station manager, Chris Czachowski , senior telecommunication major , said the upgrading would involve the addition of a new radio tower, studio transmitter and studio facilities. Czachowslci said the funds from instruc· lion and public service categories would be used with federal money. "I don't know if it would be cheaper to go with 100,000 watts or not. It might be cheaper than going flve or 10,000 watts since we would get more federal money for the higher wattage," he said. Czacbowski said 100,000 watts would cover most of northern Arizona. governor. the joint legislative budget committee and the state legislature for final approval. Regent Dwight W. Patterson reprimanded U of A for over-use of in-state travel expenses. He said U of A.'s in-state travel allocation of $1.2 million is 11p 26.t percent from last year's budget. Patterson said U of A's travel is " beyond the realm of reason" ami added bas failed to meet the energy crisis. He suggested a study be made of travel expenditures for all three universities . Funds for m-state travel at ASU increased almost SO percent aU302,SOOand :10 percent at NAU for reore than $160,000. NA U also was granted authority by the board to lease purchase, using Lumberjack advertising revenue, a typesetter to be used by The Lumberjack staff and journalism students. The typesetter, a Compugrapbic Trendsetter, will be leased for 60 months at $28 .117. The board also approved $53 ,926 for an agreement between NAU and the A.nzona Department of Education to assist them in identi fying special needs students and develop ways to help them succeed in their regular academic programming. A contract of $S6,341 was awardeo to the Ar izona Border town 1 ndian Education Committee. The contract will allow the ABl EC to provide services , including counseling i nstruction and other educational services, lor Indians not living in dormitories attending Flagstaff , Holbrook and Winslow public schools.

Students find establishing credit difficult by Angela Yearta Students with no credit history may find themselves ina predicament when planning major purchases such as homes or cars and then finding that they must bave credit to pay for them. The credit establishing process may be particularly bard for students new to the credit rating game. " It's always tough for young people to get started witbotit previous credit to checl:. We generally give them loans if they've been on a job for a-;vbile and maybe they are buying merchandise such as a car," said Jack Richards, manager at Valley National Bank's university branch. Richards e•plained that 75 percent of all loans applied for are approved because most students realize that they cannot walk into a bank and borrow $500-$1 ,000 on the spot. Mark Strivings, a married NA U senior, said, " It 's a real hassle to get credit, but once yoo get it started, it's fine, as long as you keep up the payments." Strivings had no credit until two years ago when be toot a loan oot for a public addreu system. He said that it is difficult to get a loan unleu parents or other already established people CC»igD. The bank maaa,er said that " It '1 real bad for a lt1ldent Lf we overload him with big paymenll aud lie sWtl Otlt life with 1 bad credit ntinc, becaae when be ;ret. oat of ICIIool, lie Will delillitely need credit to get a llorne, ~ or get establilbed. If we have done him 1M injustice of creating bad credit IMn be has got a problem." Many students turn to the alternative of Federally Insured Student Loans (FISLI which have a seven percent interest rate as compared to a 12 percent or higher rate on a reg11lar lear •. Sue LaBaido, NA.U senior, bas a FISL. " It's good (FISL)because you don't have to pay until nine months after graduation." Most banks try not to treat students differently than non-students , said Richards. In fact , they lite to make as many loans as possible because that is their business. Peggy and Jack Hounsell, married NAU seniors, have received student loans and feel that these help establiJb credit. " Getting a cbecking account and a banting card also belp, '' said Mrs. Hounsell, who was an out-<>f-state student. She also said that one of their smartest moves was to pay for a cookware set on a monthly payment plan because that created a credit record. Banb look for three main characteristics in loan applicants: permanency on the job, good income, and tbe need for a loan. Although loans are usually tough to come by, cbectinc accounts are easy ta &ef. However, a Valley Bank card requires that a pareat CHien for it.
