Each passengerdrives no further than one mileto each pick-up point."There are several advantagesto van-pooling other than themost obvious one-gas savings," said Rick Blanton, director of student life and StudentActivities.

"The cost for faculty,parking permits is 6 per month,so this is a 72 per year savingsalone, not to mention the student parking permits whichamount to 25 per semester,"Blanton said.The vans were purchasedthrough available parking fees"to get it started," according toJohn Perry, vice chancellor forAdministrative Services. Thecost of the vans is expected tobe paid off by fees assessed tothe riders.The university purchased special insurance for the drivers,who are also allowed use of thevans up to 300 miles per monthfor their own personal use at therate of approximately 20 centsper mile.Requirel!lents for the driversare minimal.

F1anakln, .",Fee should be decreasedThe UMSL administrationhas announced that it willrecommend to the UM Boardof Curators that this campus'parking fee be lowered in thefuture. If the curators followthe recominendation, studentswill pay just 524 per semesterfor the privilege of parking oncampus, rather than the current 525.A look at the university's1980-81 operating budget,however, clearly illustratesthat UMSL can afford a muchgreater decrease in the fee,and calls into question theadministration's honesty regarding how the money generated by parking fees andfines is spent.The university, according tothe budget, expected to spend5249,000 this year for parkinglot operations. Of that figure,596,000 was earmarked forsalaries and wages, 575,000for equipment, 517,600 forstaff benefits, 512,000 for consumable supplies and services, and 55,000 each forcommunications service, copyservice and repairs and maintenance.The expenditures figure alsoincludes 1,000 for computertime, 300 for rentals andleases, 5100 for travel and532,000 for "other" expenses.A rather disturbing breakdown of the parking lotaccount's salaries line itemcan be found on page 41 ofthe bUdget.There one discovers thattwo clerk typists, a policedetective and six police officers are paid their salariesfrom the fee. Donna LeeCunningham and Janice E.Mullins, both clerk typists, arepaid 8,077 and 58,373, respectively. Orbe A. Jolly, thedetective, is paid 13,331.EDITORIALMichael Abernathy, GaryClark (no longer on campus),William Thornton and FrancesWilliams, all police patrolmen,were scheduled to be paidfrom the fee. In addition, twounfilled (as of last spring,when the budget was established) patrolman positions.are financed with parkingmoney.The administration has longsaid that income from the feeis used exclusively for themaintenance and constructionof parking lots and roads oncampus. As a pamphlet published here in the mid-seventies, entitled "Why Pay forParking?" , stated: -"The revenue from parking fees goesinto a special fund and is usedonly to construct and maintainroads, parking garages andsurface parking; to rent parking space off campus whennecessary; and to pay for theprinting of parking stickers 'and regulations."Why are police being paidout of this fee? The policedepartment, after all, has itsown budget.The administration claimsthat the department's issuanceof tickets constitutes maintenance of the lots. It isdifficult to understand howthat body could have arrivedat such a determination. Itstretches the definition of"maintenance" to an illogicalextreme.It might be a little easier toswallow paying such a highprice so that patrolmen, clerksand a detective can drawsalaries if the budget didn'treveal this year's expectedincome from parking lot operations. That totals 480,000,generated from student andfaculty / staff parking fees andfines alone.The document terms the 231 ,000 not covered in projected expenditures "estimated excess income. "Students, in other words,are paying nearly twice asmuch as is necessary to mai tain the lots; if the police 'andclerks weren't paid from theparking account, studentswould be paying nearly threetimes as much as is needed.With this in mind, a 51reduction in the fee meansvery little indeed.CURRE"T'1[ 1' ,' i.'·;:\ ( )jf'.11 S()U[ -! 1EdItor . .
