Eighteen other organizations budgets were cut, some by more than 50%. The Committee was working with a projected $56,100 compared to the $66,300 available during the 1974-75 school year.

The center of controversy was the reduction of the 8.A.5.1.8. budget from a requested $3,300 to a proposed allocation of $1,500. The International Relations Club, WQFS, and the Guilfordian representa tives all raised questions about their abilities to continue present services if forced to sustain serious budget cuts.
