student fee* money each KMU program, such as the KMl

should he used, and the Clark Dot union!, which is the
University's official in< identnl fee guidelines, has been
under review since last summer

review the present ini idental fee system. Moseley said

not lie part of the prtx ess. and the li t'. i ou t dictate con
