    Friday, Oct. 9, 1964 — Dr. Thomas C. Donnelly, president of Highlands University, was one of several New Mexico university presidents to protest a recommendation of the Board of Educational Finance to raise out-of-state tuition beginning September 1965. The increase for non-residents would be from $500 a year to $580. Donnelly maintained the BEF acted without input from universities and that the out-of-state increase would discourage many from applying here.
