Tuesday some funds will be released for

He said the "speed with which the

financial problems and left his

Alter the course was created last
spring, Crist submitted a budget of
$4.M)0 per semester, to the Depji imciit
of Health Fducation. which included
compensation for his time.
Crist would not receive any additional
salary for teaching the course, but the
health education department must pay
the School of Medicine for his services.
The initial budget was rejected for lack
of funds. The course was financed last
semester through about $700 in
contributions from individuals and
schools of the University, Wilson said.
The Human Sexuality committee set a
budget of $800 for this semester but has
received only S250 thus far from the
School of Nursing.
'The facts speak for themselves," Crist
said. "We are turning away from 400 to
500 students each semester who can't get
into the course because of limited space,
time, money and instructors. Why?"
