MSA won 't sponsor Homecoming activities

The Michigan Daily-Wednesday, October 24, 1979-Page 3

By TOM MIRGA
Voicing concern over allocating
money to an already well-funded
-organization, the Michigan Student
Assembly (MSA) last night rejected a
proposal to co-sponsore this weekend's
Homecoming activities with the
University Activities Center (UAC).
1 In addition to doubts about putting
'Assembly funds into what MSA General
"Counsel Dave Fischer terms a "well-
.moneyed organization," MSA members
also questioned UAC's willingness to
-put seed money into the event.
H "I FEEL IT'S unfqrtunate they didn't
. address the issue of the merit of
iHomecoming," John Cadarette, UAC's
iomecoming coordinator, said after
the meeting. "They looked at us as a
financial structure rather than as a
program."~
* UAC Chief Financial Officer Mike
Levitt said he could understand MSA's
concerns and expressed his hope that

UAC could continue to work with the
Assembly in the future.
"It wasn't in their allocation struc-
ture to fund a program like ours,"
Levitt explained. "Most groups come to
MSA with a single program, whereas
UAC sponsors over 50 programs per
term."
MSA FIRST confronted the issue of
funding Homecoming during their
meeting last week. After a Budget
Priorities Committee recommendation
to earmark $550 for the event was
slashed down to $250, the Assembly
decided to withhold a final decision
pending additional information on
UAC's budget.
Regardless of MSA's decision not to
fund the event, Levitt said,
Homecoming will still go on as planned.
'"Seeing that we will not get the funds,"
he continued, "UAC will have to absorb
somewhere betweeen six to seven hun-
dred, dollars by making a profit on
future programs."

The Assembly last night also
received assurances from Student
Organizations,. Activities and
Programs (SOAP) Representatives
Maureen O'Rourke and Kevin Taylor
that their office has no power to control
MSA.
"THE JIST OF MY responsibility,"
O'Rourke said, "is to work with MSA to
clear up matters of concern before the
University - or (Vice President for
Student Services) Henry Johnson sees a
need to step in."
"So you see your main role as ex-
plaining us to Johnson and not the other
way around," said Assembly member
Anne Fullerton.
"No, it works both ways," O'Rourke

reponded. "It's a lot like walking a
tightrope."
The Assembly also questioned the
legality of the administration's supen-
sion of MSA's funding capabilities in
the wake of last year's election
violations.
Taylor affirmed the University's ac-
tions, saying there was ample legal
precedent for administrative discretion
in the use of University general funds.
Assembly member Kathy Machle
disagreed with that characterization.
"I've read a number of cases," the
third-year law student said; "and it's
my opinion that the Regents could get
into a nice, messy lawsuit if they try to
withhold our funds."

NEW YORK (AP)-Several major
U.S. banks, faced with high costs of
acquiring funds, yesterday raised their
prime lending rates on business loans to
a record 15 per cent. {
Analysts expect the rest of the
nation's biggest banks to follow suit in a
few days.
ONLY TWO WEEKS ago, the nation's
major banks raised the rate they
charge for loans to their most credit-
worthy corporate borrowers by an un-
precedented full percentage point, to
14.5 per cent.
Morgan Guranty Trust, the fifth
largest U.S. bank, in ranking by
deposits, was the first of the big banks
to post the half-point rise yesterday.
It was soon joined by more than a
dozen commercial banks, including
most of the 15 largest.
BANKS USE THE prime rate as the
basis for setting interest rates on
almost all commercial-industrial loans,
Although the prime has no direct effect
on consumer loan interest rates, it is

NEW YORK (AP)-Oil companies
say their profits for July, August and
September were huge. And, as with the
previous quarter, the numbers are
raising questions about where all the
money is coming from.
Ekxon, the world's largest oil com-
pany, more than doubled its profits in
the July-September quarter to $1.14
billion. Other companies also reported
huge gains-Conoco Inc. said its profits
rose 134 per cent.
A spokesman for a union represen-
ting oil industry workers called
Exxon's earnings "pornographic."
President Carter said they demonstrate
need for a "windfall profits" tax.
The oil companies are quick to ex-
plain that most of their profits did not
come from refining and marketing

viewed as an indicator of trends in in-
terest rates generally.
Many banks in several areas of the
nation have cut back lending or raised
interest rates for consumer credit such
as installment loans or home mor-
tgages.
