Transcript ,3 tending on our own two feet Warm summer breezes disguise stiff undercurrent Rich- During the halcyon days of summer, while most students took a much- needed respite from the rigors of study, many people were busy as bees on the UH campus. Here's a recap. * On April 29, UH President Richard Van Horn and Students' Association President Wendy Trachte signed an agreement putting the new $15 UC fee — approved by student referendum in April — into effect for the fall semester. The Students' Association Senate, during a special session June 27, passed a bill restructuring the University Center Policy Board. This body will be in charge of allocating funds collected from the fee, satisfying a provision of the agreement. * Besides the UC fee, another new charge appeared on fall fee statements — a $10 "general property deposit." A state law providing for collection of the deposit apparently had been on the books for years, but the legislature only recently made collection of the $ 10 mandatory, Vice President for Administration Sharon Richardson said. Students will be entitled to reclaim the money — minus any loss or damage assessments — after graduation, and have up to four years to do so, ardson said. *The Board of Regents ordered the deans of three colleges, Business Administration, Social Sciences and Natural Sciences and Mathematics, to vacate the McElhinney Building so that the UH-System offices could move onto campus from the Enterprise Bank Building on the Gulf Freeway. Protests from faculty and some campus admin- strators immediately resulted. Critics project that the move would cause displacement of 5,000 students in more than 180 sections scheduled for this fall; plans for relocating these sections were incomplete. Responding to the outcry, a number of campus governing bodies — Undergraduate Council, Faculty Senate and Students' Association — quickly passed resolutions asking that the plan be reconsidered. The Board of Regents appeared to backpedal for a while, claiming that the plan to occupy McElhinney was simply one option out of many being considered; nonetheless, several memoranda clearly directed the departments involved to get out of the building. At a July board meeting, regents went ahead and approved their plan to take over the building. The only concession by the board was to delay the order to vacate until the end of the Fall 1988 semester. A $4.5 million renovation is scheduled to begin in early 1989. The move onto campus was to save $400,000 a year in rent that the system office is now paying Enterprise Bank, Regent Chair Debbie Hanna said. * UH President Richard Van Horn married Betty Jane Pfefferbaum and so became the first UH president to marry while in office. Van Horn became a widower last year when his wife Susan passed away in September. Pfefferbvaum and Van Horn decided to wed on May 29 — the anniversary of his first marriage — to honor the memory of his late wife. * Vice President for Computing James Johnson resigned effective Aug. 1 for a similar position at Emory University in Atlanta. Shortly before leaving, Johnson revealed that criticism of his work — specifically a huge telecommunications project for the whole UH-System — by UH regent C.F. Kendall was a factor in Johnson's decision to quit and go elsewhere. * Vice President for Student Affairs Paul Moore 36 ■ People
