Regents To Hear
Recruiting Views'
Discussion Set for March Meeting '
Oi Open Forum for Interviewers
By STEVE NISSEN
The Regents will hold public discussions at their next
meeting to decide whether campus recruiters should be re-
quired or requested to participate in public foaims.
The decision yesterday followed a vigorous debate in
which Regent Alvin Bentley suggested that public forums
might "turn into sessions of expert badgering.",
"I don't seehow the student body will benefit in any way
from this," Bentley added.
University President Robben W. Fleming called the forum
discussions a "constructive proposal." According to an inform-
ed source, Fleming is "pushing hard for their adoption."
Fleming said the Regents disagreed in two areas con-

Decisions Left
To Local Boards
'Older First' Draft Rule Maintaied;
Ministry Studeitts Also Deferred
WASHINGTON (R) -- The Johnson administration refused
yesterday to allow draft deferments for graduate study in any
fields but those prescribed by law -- medicine and the minis-
try.
At the same time, the administration eliminated some
support for occupational deferments by suspending the of-
ficial list of essential activities and critical occupations used
as a guideline by draft boards.
The directive applies to incoming and first year graduate
students - including the estimated 400,000 male students re-
ceiving their bachelor's degrees this year.
From now on, each local board decides on its own, in each
individual case, what constitutes an essential or critical
activity and what doesn't.

:ional Security Council, Lt. Gen. 1i 1

When the pickets entered the
building they were asked to leave
by a man who identified himself
as one of the owners of the build-
ing. Milgrom refused, insisting the
arcade was an "open, public pas-
sageway."
'One Recourse'
The owner, who refused to
identify himself further, told the
pickets, "You realize that I have
only one recourse." He later added,
"They are going to be removed."
The owner then entered the of-
fice of Apartments Limited where
he discussed the picketing with
representatives of the firm. The
owner made no further attempts
to force the students to leave.
Shortly before the pickets left,
two men who identified them-
selves as representatives of the city
prosecutor's office arrived and dis-
-ussed the situation.
They declined comment on their
presence or the legality of the
picketing. They did say they had
not offered any legal advice on the
matter.

Mike Koeneke, '69 Bus. Ad., chair-

whether the picketing will be in-

"We moved inside today be-

cause it was too cold to walk out-

The University is worried about its
future.
Here it is over 150 years old and still
not financially secure.-
Every year, the University must petition
the state Legislature to allocate the major
portion of its operating budget. The Uni-
versity never knows for sure whether the
Legislators will come through with the
needed funds for improvement or instead
demand belt-tightening.
This year, some administrators are
preparing to tighten their belts if Gov.
George Romney's recommended budget
is not hiked by the Legislature.
Romney recommended a $64.7 million
budget, which is $11.1 million below the
University's $75.8 million request.
"I could easily compile a list of ab-

and do not come close to meeting the
goals the governor said they .would
achieve.
Said Smith, "the message and the
arithmetic just don't jive."
According to University calculations,
the governor recommended no money to
hire new faculty or supporting staff or
to purchase instructional and research
equipment.
No consideration was given to improve-
ment of student, library or plant services,
and Flint College was given no funds for
expansion.
Most importantly, the governor allowed
for only a 6.3 per cent raise in faculty
salaries. The University requested anl

its salaries in stride with its competitors.
"We lost ground last year and the six

list salaries for full professors in the "A"
or "AA" category.
Although the University tries to adhere
as closely as possible to the state's spend-
ing recommendations, it is clear to Smith
that "salary is the absolute first priority,"
on the University's list of necessary im-
provements.
"Salary and wage programs are not
going to be the low man on the totem
pole this year as they were last," Smith
added.
Lowest on the totem pole with regards
to salary is the literary college. "The col-
lege's average salary for all ranks com-
pares unfavorably with respect to such
ranks in most other units of the Univer-
sity," said Dean Willian Haber of the
literary college.
"The propsed salary increases are vir-
tualy inadequate and there is no provision

Flint College will also be hard-hit by a
lack of funds for expansion. Assistant
Dean for Academic Affairs Robert H.
Glenn explained that the college needs
more staff because it has been expanding
for the last three years from a college
for upperclassmen to a four-year college.
"The freshmen are coming in faster than
we can handle them," Glenn said.
"The colleges faces a two-fold problem.
We don't have enough staff to keep
classes small, and we are unable to in-
clude important new programs in our
curriculum," Glenn added.
Glenn said enrollment in some classes
originally conceived as seminars has
risen to 80-90 students, "forcing them out
of sheer necessity to become lecture
courses."n
