REPORTER: John Chancellor

(Columbus, Ohio) Gilligan plan calls for students to repay $3,000 now put up by state; payment begins after graduation, when student's salary reaches $7,000 per year [GILLIGAN - in response to reporter question, says critics of plan changed once plan understood better.] [Board of Regents member John MILLETT - asks why students pay for education twice.] [State Representative Charles KURFESS - says plan appears unworkable; difficult to keep track of graduates to see money paid back.] [State Representative Bob LEVITT - doesn't think much chance of bill passing state legislature]
