Huts used less, losing money
RHA rejects Q-Hut changes
By JENNIFER AFFLERBACH
Battalion Stall
Proposed changes in policies for
making reservations and putting
down deposits for use of the Quonset
Huts were unanimously rejected by
the Residence Hall Association
Tuesday night.
Currently, RHA, Off Campus
Aggies and the Corps of Cadets have
the right to reserve the Huts in adv
ance of any other organizations. The
proposal from Dena Todd, coordina
tor of student services, would have
ended this priority period after the
first day of classes each semester.
Reservations would then be open to
all eligible organizations on a first
come, first served basis.
The change was proposed because
of the decline in use of the Huts by
residence halls, which has put the
Huts $700 in debt, said Tim Ryan,
Quonset Hut committee chairman.
“Out of the 25 residence halls,
only nine have used the Q-Huts this
semester,” Ryan said.
One reason given for opposing the
reservation change was that dorms
cannot have their activities planned
by the first day of the semester in
order to reserve a hut.
The group passed an amendment
to the proposal extending the reser
vation deadline to the first day of the
third week of the semester.
A proposal to charge $15 for all
reservation cancellations was also
amended. Delegates voted to charge
the fee only if a cancellation is made
within 20 days of the scheduled
event. The entire $50 deposit re
quired to reserve a hut is forfeited if a
cancellation is made within 10 days
of the event.
In other business, Ron Blatchley,
director of student affairs, expressed
concern about the lack of participa
tion in building the bonfire by both
on and off campus students.
“By no means am I advocating
doing away with bonfire,” Blatchley
said. “On the other hand, it’s not the
kind of project that we like to have to
almost coerce people into doing. ”
Blatchley suggested that RHA
form a committee to investigate the
continuation of bonfire.

W. ClampitfcHighty-two out-of-state members
; said theciiiftxas AficM’s Corps of Cadets next
ent suggeilipester will be granted in-state tui-
status as a result of a recent rul-
deportedielg.bv the Texas Coordinating Board
ing involvedn Austin.
te said polialAccording to the board ruling,
s for dep. )ut-of-state juniors and seniors
er contract to the U.S. military
considered Texas residents and
efore entitled to pay tuition and
of in-state students.
Jurrently Texas residents pay $4
semester hour, out-of-state stu-
Its pay $40 per semester hour.
VrnesenofSt: if ruling could mean more than a
of the 7-Elt DO savings per semester in tuition
itomer apps |cadet from out of state carrying a
uston Mete diour semester load,
cil’s rewaiiPThis is a significant event for at
largersimPt 82 of our cadets,” Corps Com-
dant Col. James Woodall said,
lingthat the ruling might also pro-
an additional incentive for those
isidering joining the Corps and a
itary contract.
|I would think it would be (an in-
itive) if someone could see that
could save over $1,000 a year
Is get the additional $1,000 a year
|eady granted cadets on military
tract). That’s not a bad little scho-
hip,” he said.
adets on contract receive $100
seriously t per month during their junior and
customer i>‘ w ^ars.
Id it boys ft P e re cent ruling followed a re-
easy.” She! r st ky University Registrar Don
ly shot the ! lrter ^ or an interpretation of the
red “Oh 6 toas Education Code statute which
’if dead, that: “An officer, enlisted
man or woman, selectee or draftee of
the Army, Army Reserve ... of the
United States, who is assigned to
duty in Texas is entitled to register
by paying the tuition and other fees
... required of Texas residents.”
Carter said both he and military
science department personnel pre
viously decided ROTC cadets could
not be considered “selectees or draf
tees” of the military as specified, so
the statute was determined nonap-
plicable.
“We concluded this regulation did
not cover contracted cadets because
they were not assigned to duty in the
state of Texas. They came down here
on their own and joined the Corps on
their own,” Carter said.
Unknown to him, however, offi
cials at another university in the
state, which he declined to identify,
were not interpreting the statute the
same way, and all advanced ROTC
cadets were being assessed in-state
tuition and fees.
After a Texas A&M cadet called
this to his attention. Carter said he
requested an interpretation of the
statute by the Texas Coordinating
Board, the state’s school governing
board.
The board ruled that out-of-state
cadets were selectees of the U.S.
military and thus were eligible for
the exemption.
The ruling in favor of the out-of-
state cadets, effective the spring
semester of 1981, is not retroactive,
however, Carter said.
