U' budget priorities: Seeking more

second of two parts
Vice' President for Academic Affairs
Allan Smith is sitting back in his
cushioned swivel chair, thinking about
the problems he has been having with
the most precious of University com-
modities: money.
"You know, if I thought austerity
budgets were a continuing phenome-
non, I'd try to get a group of wise
men together . . . a planning- group."
Then, after mulling over the thought
awhile, Smith says: "Yes, some more
visible planning function has to be
set up."
Had the above statement been made
two years ago, most students and fac-
ulty members would have reacted to
it with surprise. Traditionally, ad-
ministrators have had a reputation of
reacting cooly to suggestions that they
solicit help from others in decision-

making-by definition, their domain.
However, of late their actions would
seem to give proof of changing atti-
tudes, coming on the heels of three
years of austerity budgets at the Uni-
versity. Both Smith and President
Robben Fleming now seem ready to
consult more with the faculty over
budgetary decisions of consequence-
and suggestions of student input occur.
now with increasing frequency.
In fact, the administration recently
made public a plan designed to in-
crease faculty and student input into
budgetary decision making.
This plan, which seems likely to
come before the Regents after more
discussion with the faculty, would set
up three committees - each with a
special area of concern - which would
in turn report to a larger group of
administrators, faculty and, perhaps,
students. Although no real power

would be given these groups, their
recommendations "would be listened
to very carefully," assures Smith.
The main group - to be called the
Office of Budgeting and Planning-
would be placed under Fleming's per-
sonal jurisdiction "because the presi-
dent's office and its duties cross all
jurisdictional lines within the Uni-
versity, and the president's office is
the only place which has that kind of
The University's Office of Insti-
tutional Research would provide staff
assistance to the committees during
the "trial period," which Fleming says
should last "a year or so."
Regardless of how effective this
scheme eventually becomes, its initia-
tion alone indicates a new trend to-
ward more faculty involvement in
budgetary and long-range decision
making. The state's generally dismal

faculty input
Fleming plans budget unit
After several preliminary drafts and discussions, President
Robben Fleming made public last week the University admin-
istration's proposed organization plan for faculty input into
short- and long-range University planning.
In a memo to the University vice presidents, dated Nov. 22,
Fleming requested the establishment of an "informal organiza-
tion" to take faculty and student advice on matters of long-
range planning, program evaluation and priorities.
According to the memo, an Office of Budgeting and Plan-
ning would be established under Fleming's jurisdiction with a
steering committee "composed of representatives from each of
the relevant vice presidents' offices, plus faculty, and perhaps
Under this office, in turn, would be three specialized sub-
groups comprised of faculty members and a few students:

ties. Each group would receive help from the University's Office

Italy, Burundi, Somalia, Sierra Leone, Ja-
pan and Syria joined the United States in
voting for the resolution.
Through the U.S. resolution, the council
said it:
-"Calls upon the governments of India
and Pakistan to take all steps required for
an immediate cessation of hostilities;
-"Calls for an immediate withdrawal of
armed personnel present on the territory of
the other to their own sides of the India-
P4kistan borders; and
-"Authorizes the secretary - general at
the request of . . . India or Pakistan, to
place observers along the India-Pakistan
borders to report on the implementation of
the cease-fire and troop withdrawals."
The resolution said the Secretary-general,
J Thant, should draw "as necessary" on
the U.N. Military Observer Group in India
and Pakistan, long established on the Kash-
mir cease-fire line.
Pakistani Ambassador Agha Shahi, the
first speaker at the session, accused India
of "an armed attack to break up" Pakistan
and asked the 15-nation council "to find
the means to make India desist from its
war of aggression."
Indian Ambassador Samar Sen said the
issue of a cease-fire was "not between In-
dia and Pakistan, but between East Paki-
stan and West Pakistan."
The council earlier deferred action on a
Soviet and Indian proposal that a repre-
szntative of the East Pakistani rebels be

War escalates
on two fronts
From Wire Service Reports
Indian forces began a massive drive into
East Pakistan yesterday, in an attempt to
crush the 8,000-man government army there
and create an independent state. Meanwhile,
five Indian bombing raids were reported in
West Pakistan on the port city of Karachi.
Although war has not been formally de-
clared by either of the two countries, a proc-
lamation in the government gazette of West
Pakistan Friday stated, "a state of war ex-
ists." Indian Prime Minister Indira Gandhi
then accused the country of declaring war.
The Indian government claimed its forces
had captured eight border towns in the drive
into East Pakistan, which is separated from
West Pakistan by 1,000 miles of Indian ter-
ritory. Hostilities between the two coun-
tries began last month in East Pakistan,
where India has supported rebels fighting for

University officials are presently consid-
ering establishing a separate police for the
University campus. Frederick Davids, direc-
tor of the department of safety, revealed re-
cently he will submit a number of proposals
to the Regents at their December meeting.
Davids will not list any of the proposals.
The decision to move towards forming a
police force followed recent cutbacks in
funds from the state to the University. In
previous years, the University was granted
1.1 million dollars a year from the state
which was earmarked specifically to pay
the city for police and fire protection.
Governor Milliken, who is faced with a
possible deficit in the state budget in the
coming fiscal year, opposes such payments
by the'University. He feels the University is
favored and privileged because they are the
only university in the state to receive such

Most other major colleges and universities
maintain their own police force. The Univer-
sity is reducing their payments to the city
to $350,000 for the present fiscal year, and
plans to cut off all payments after this year.
The 1.1 million represented approximately
16 per cent of the current operating budget
of the city police. The city itself is also hav-
ing financial problems which may mean fur-
ther slashes to the police budget, resulting
in a reduction of police patrolling and in-
vestigating services to not only the Univer-
sity but to the entire city.
Although Davids has not revealed any of
the proposals in detail, he indicated he fa-
vored a solution where the University would
hire policemen who would be deputized by
the city with powers to arrest and carry
firearms. This force would be organized and
directed by the University, most likely by

fighting between India and Pakistan.
Meanwhile, China early y e s t e r d a y de-

of last year's disputed elections and guaran-

the massive U.S. economic aid program for
India is under review. The State Department
