MSA handouts satisfy
about 25% of requests

Last year, the Michigan Student
Assembly (MSA) seemed to have more
money than it knew what to do with.
This year's a different story, and last
night MSA drastically reduced the
amount of money available to student
organizations for events planned in the
near future. Nineteen groups submitted
funding requests for October totaling
over $22,000, but since MSA's budget for
the whole year is only $24,000, the
organizations came away with ap-
proximately $5,000.
Priorities Committee (BPC) held
hearings on the requests. According to
BPC member Anne Fullerton, the
committee based its recommendations
to the Assembly on two major points.
"First off," she said, "we don't have
a hell of a lot of money to give out.
Secondly, we looked at the impact of the
events on the total student body."
Fullerton also said BPC decided to
try to limit the monthly total of external
allocations to $5,000 per month. "It
would be unfair to groups who come to
us for funding later in the year if we

allow our funds to dry up now," she ex-
THE MOTION to limit the amount of
funding to the student groups was met
with numerous questions, objections,
revisions and explanations from both
assembly members and organization
spokespersons attending last night's
In one case, the University Activities
Center (UAC) had initially requested
$2,000 from the Assembly to help defray
the cost of Homecoming events. BPC
had advised MSA to allocate $550 to the
group. General Counsel Dave Fisher
pointed out UAC received more tha1
$70,000 per year from University fund$
to sponsor events and objected to
allocating any amount of money to the
group until MSA received an account of
UAC's budget.
"This is a large organization with a
large cash flow," Fisher said, "and
there are a number of other groups
asking us for money who have no funds.
at all.
Hatem agreed, saying MSA "should not
get into the habit of funding UAC even-
ts." After lengthy discussion, the

Assembly voted to postpone allocations
to UAC until they received more infor-
mation on the body's budget. At the
same time, MSA also voted to slash the
BPC recommendation of $550 to $250
pending further discussions with UAC.
Two representatives of student
groups requesting funding were sym-
patheticto the task BPC had in deciding
which groups would receive how much
"I'm not upset," said Cinema Guild
Treasurer Tony Palermino, "but
disappointed. The amount of funding
they agreed to puts a severe cramp in,
our budget. But even without the fun-
ding we asked for, we still should be
able to put on our event."
North American Student Cooperative
Organization (NASCO) spokesperson
Jonathon Klein said after listening to
MSA debate on the funding proposals he
believed the final decisions were very
thorough and fair.
"We asked for $1,000," Klein said,
"but only came away with about half
that amount. We're short of money to
cover the upcoming speech by Ralph
Nader, but NASCO will have to pick up
the slack."

West Indian
get Nobel
in economic
STOCKHOLM, Sweden (AP) -
An American and a West Indian
who teaches in the United States
were jointly awarded the 1979
Nobel Memorial Prize in
Economic Science yesterday for
their work to improve economic
and "human" conditions, in-
cluding women's liberation, in
the Third World.
The award, which carries a
cash prize of $190,000, was the fif-
th this year received by
Americans, who have captured
the lion's share of 1979 prizes as
in past years. The award to the
West Indian was the first ever
given to an economist from the
developing world, according to'
the Royal Swedish Academy.
the University of Chicago, and Sir
Arthur Lewis, 64, the West Indian
native and British subject who
teaches at Princeton University,
"both have extensive practical
experience of development
problems and are deeply concer-
ned about the need and poverty in
the world and how to find ways
out of under-development," the
academy said in a citation.
In an interview at his Prin-
ceton, N.J., home, Lewis, who
was born on the island of St..
Lucia, said he was interested in
what happens to underdeveloped
countries as they become
wealthier and more modern.
"For example, there's a
change from working on family
farms to working in factories and
working for wages. And there's a
transfer of labor out of the coun-
tryside into the towns and ur-
banization, Lewis said.
He had been in close contact
with Schultz since 1951, Lewis
said, when the two worked on
United Nations committee
studying developing countries.

Man convicted in death of student

The man accused of striking and
killing a University archaeology
graduate student with his van last July,
Mark McCleary, was convicted of
negligent homicide by a Washtenaw
County Circuit Court jury yesterday af-
The conviction, a misdemeanor,
carries a maximum two-year sentence
while an original charge of man-
slaughter carried a maximum sentence
of 15 years.
The unanimous decision handed down
by a seven-man five-woman jury after
deliberating for a short time. The trial
began Monday.
THE 25-YEAR-OLD Ypsilanti native
was accused of striking and killing 30-
year-old Jane Sallade on North Univer-

sity Avenue near Church Street July 20
with his 1976 Ford van.
Sallade was considered a brilliant
student by colleagues. The Carbondale,
Ill. native had just returned from a field
trip in Cyprus examining land use pat-
terns and was preparing to write a doc-
toral dissertation. It would have been
the first of its kind published in this
Washtenaw County Prosecutor
Robert Cooper said he was "shocked"
McCleary was convicted with such a
minor offense compared with the
original manslaughter charge.
Cooper explained the purpose of the
trial was not to decide whether Mc-
Cleary actually killed Sallade, but "to
determine the degree of risk or
recklessness (McCleary) was engaged

in" 'while he was driving.
Ritchie said McCleary "has accepted
full and complete responsibility for the
accident ... He has not treated this at
all lightly."
One witness, whose car McCleary
passed while rounding the corner near
the University shuttle bus stop, said
McCleary was travelling between 50
and 60 mph, before his van struck
Sallade and threw her 80 feet.
Cooper said McCleary was released
on $5,000 bond and will be sentenced on"
Dec. 7.

C .reacts to quake

From AP and Reuter
EL CENTRO, California - Thousan-
ds of people slept outdoors and anti-
looting patrols roamed the streets after
a strong earthquake killed one person
and injured 100 along the U.S.-Mexican
border, police said yesterday.M
Officials said yesterday that Califor-
nia's worst earthquake in eight years-
left cracks and separations in the major
canal bringing water to this arid border
region, leaving some cities in the area
with only a two-day water supply.;

CITY AND county officials differed
on the effect of the canal damage. A
county supervisor said water flow was
"down to a trickle."
City and council officials met in the
garage of the Imperial County fire
station beneath neon lights left askew
by the earthquake. The meeting was
jarred by one of the hundreds of after-
shocks from Monday afternoon's
quake, which measured 6.5 on the
Richter scale.
