EAST LANSING - Phillip May,
Michigan State University's fin-
ancial vice president and treasur-
er retained his position yesterday
as a deadlocked vote of MSU's
trustees failed to carry a motion
for his dismissal.
In effect, the deadlock means
that May,, on sabbatical le a v e
since a conflict-of-interest decis-
ion against him last June, will'
resume his official duties on Mon=
day. MSU President John Hannahi
said May would return to his job :.
at the same salary and with theI
same responsibilities he had before*
the state attorney general's decis- I
ion three months ago.
Thursday, May wrote a letterE
to Hannah saying that he had di-'
vested himself of the controver-
sial business interests which .
brought about Attorney General
Frank Kelley's decision. May also
asked that he be allowed to .re-
turn to active duty."
In a closed session of the trus-
tees yesterday morning, Chairman
Don Stevens moved that May be
fired from his position. Stevens.

The Regents yesterday approved the Residential College's
request for $3 million from residence hall revenues to be used
for renovation and expansion of East Quadrangle.
The chief source of money to finance the work will be a
$2 million bond issue to be repaid out of room and board
revenue. The bond issue will be on East Quadrangle and one
other residence hall, either Alice Lloyd or South Quadrangle.
Both halls become debt-free this year.
In addition, $500,000 will be provided out of the Residence
Hall Reserve Fund, a capital reserve from residence hall oper-,
ations, and $500,000 will come,---

Research grant


Over 600 research projects at
the University are suffering a
slight case of malnutrition.
The National Institutes of
Health (NIH) and the National
Science Foundation (NSF,
which supplied the University
with $12 and $3.8 million res-
pectively for basic research in
the past fiscal year, have been
forced to reduce the rate of re-
lease of funds already allocated
for projects.
"The NSF move is not a
spending cut," stressed Vice
President for Research A. Geof-
frey Norman. "It is a spending

NSF works on a grant-by-

University is reimbursed by the
