        The procedure in the past on
    work permits, Chamberlain ex-
    plained, has been for the Foreign
    Student Office to process the
    applications for permits, and to
    approve them. Now, Chamber-
    lain says, the Office will have to
    send the applications to the
    I m m ig ration Service for
    approval.
       "It will be up to the Immi-
    gration Inspector to decide who
should receive a permit,"
Chamberlain said. One thing that
is currently concerning the
Foreign Student Office, he
added, is that "we don't have
any general guidelines on how
the local office will interpret the
rules, and what will and will not
be permitted," he said.
     Won't affect on-campus
    INS summer work permits are
granted on the basis on "eco-
nomic need due to unforseen
circumstances which arose after
entry into the United States."
This, Associate Commissioner
Edward O'Connor told The
Tech, applies 'only if price in-
creases and other financial
problems make it impossible for
a student to live on the resources
he brought with him -to this
country."
   "In the past, many foriegn
students have gotten summer
jobs not because of need, but
just to have something to do,"
