SYRACUSE U BOYCOTT SPURS 79 LAYOFFS

Syracuse University administrators, faced with a week-long student protest of a proposed tuition increase of nearly 10 percent, have laid off 79 dining hall workers due to a slowdown in business.

If the tuition increase is approved by Syracuse trustees at their meeting Friday, the cost of undergraduate tuition, room and board will be $17,558 for the 1990-91 academic year. Last week, student leaders organized a boycott of the Schine Student Center's cafeteria and bookstore to protest the increase. It is due to end Monday.
