The University's urban education
program-aimedsat providing for the
educational needs of the ghetto comn-
munity--is experiencing growing pains,
project director Prof. Tony Milazzo
said yesterday.
Speaking at a special meeting of
the education school faculty, Milazzo
said the program was having difficulty
coordinating the work of the principles
involved-the University, the Detroit
Public Schools and the city's com-
The $6 million, federally-funded
program included work with three-
man teaching teams, resource centers
and work at training teachers to teach
other teachers for the development of
complete "learning environments."
"The program had problems getting
started," Milazzo told the faculty. "The
time to prepare-the time for begin-
ning-was insufficient."
The program was intended to have
equal participation by the University,
the school district and the community
in teacher training, but has been at-

tacked specifically for being geared
more to teacher training rather than
serving the needs of inner-city stu-
Milazzo doted three other basic
-Not everyone who could, would or
should have participated had a chance
-The University admissions policy
posed difficulties in enrolling people
who normally would not meet the
University's standards.
--Professors in contact with the
program were not informed what ap-
propriate courses should be.
The enrollment problem was solved
by "putting people on the spot," Mi-
lazzo said, but he did not elaborate
on the subject.
Communication was another major
"We're asking people to work to-
gether when they were previously on
their own," Milazzo explained. The
problem was especially acute in cases
of communities that are wary of be-
ing guinea pigs in research projects
and tended not to be too helpful.

Milazzo said schools must be con-
cerned about the communities in which
they are located to fulfill their goals
of interaction.
In terms of the University, Milazzo
said, "To be successful there must be
interest and communication and ac-
tion involvement in the School of Ed-
ucation for those who are qualified."
"A policy-making board is being
established" to provide guidelines for
the program and create a sounder
interaction between the school, com-
munty and University, he said.
The board will include three repre-
sentatives from each of the seven
school communities, three representa-
tives from the Detroit Public Schoo'
system and three from the University.
Milazzo explained, "Each school
community is holding an election to
choose representatives for the board."
Previously the project itself had
chosen key people from the com-
munity who were known to have con-
tacts. Milazzo admits that "initially
the people were narrow in terms of
the community."

However, he adds, people have been
pulled in since the initial 25, making
their numbers reach about 80, and
there is better representation.
Milazzo said the teaching teams be-
ing instituted in the schools were led
by a local experienced teacher, aided
by both an inexperienced teacher and
another who has had no training in
Milazzo added that efforts were
made to pull all these people from the
communities themselves.
However, he said, "We didn't get the
full proportion out of the seven com-
munities, but it is better than we ex-
For the four subsequent years of the
program, all participants would be
from the communities which are being
directly affected, he said.
Both Milazzo and Education Dean
Wilbur Cohen have requested that
suggestions, criticism or help for the
program be submitted to the education
office. They believe the program can
only be efficient if a high amount of
interaction is maintained on all levels.

LANSING OP) - Two consti-

be part of Gov. William G.,
Milliken's plan for reforma-
tion to the state's educational
system likely will require the
state to operate for the next,
three years at current financ-

That estimate is contained in a
detailed memorandum being cir-
culated among House Republicans
by Rep. Martin Buth, assistant

On the question of Parochiaid.
Buth said, "The governor seems
inclined to include some assist-
ance, based on a percentage of a
certified teacher's salary for . .

amount in Milliken's plan, Buth
said, is $50 million.
House speaker William A. Ryan
(D-Detroit) leader of the once-
defeated Parochiaid backers, has
said the state would have to ex-
pect to pay some $250 million
more if a parochiaid grant were

A JUDICIAL COLLEAGUE of Judge Clement Haynsworth said
he would have avoided Haynsworth's controversial stock purchase.
Testifying before the Senate Judiciary Committee yesterday, Judge
Harrison Winter of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals indicated
that, if in similar circumstances, he would not have bought the stock
until court opinion had been filed.
Haynsworth - President Nixon's choice for Supreme Court
Justice - has come under fire because of a $16,000 purchase of Bruns-
wick Corp. stock while deciding on a case involving the corporation.
However, Winter added that the purchase had not in the slightest
degree impaired his belief in Haynsworth's integrity or ability
