Day care center opens at ed school



(Continued from Page 1)
"Our biggest problem was that
we had to work through so many
different administrators since no
one is actually responsible for us,"
says Nancy Ross, director of the
"Secondly," she continues, "we
had to find a place. Eventually
we came up with two locations-
one in the Women's Athletic Bldg.
and one in the education school.
The rooms in the Athletic Bldg.
were our first choice since it was
bigger, had kitchen facilities and
was accessible to the outside."
"We kept trying to get in to see
President (Robben) Fleming, who
ultimately had to okay the loca-
tion, but he was always tied up,"
Ross says. "So some of us went to
Fleming's office and just sat there
until he met with us."
"Fleming offered us the room
in the education school, even
though it would have to be re-
modeled to fit fire regulations and
we could only have it for a year,"
Ross says.
The Athletic dept. claimed its
room was too heavily scheduled
and refused to grant permission for
its use. However, center organizers

say the room was being used only
a few hours per week-and for
classes which did not use the
kitchen facilities.
Now that their immediate prob-
lems are settled, the center or-
ganizers have their eyes aimed
toward the future. In October a
plan submitted by the Office of
Religious Affairs will be discussed
by University administrators which
proposes that:

-The University provide the
center with a permanent location,
portable units and a subsidy; and
-A corporation be set up (to
include the center) which would
receive a $250,000 loan from the
University to set up different cen-
ters to suit various needs of the
community including infant care,
after school care, and increased

advisory role and the vice presi-
dent the ultimate authority.
In July of last year a compro-
mise was reached and did not
specify the relationship between
the vice president and the policy,
board, leaving that matter to be
worked out between the two.
At the same time as the bylaw
controversy was in progress, a
search committee was looking for
a new vice president for student
services. In January 1970, the
committee submitted five names
to Fleming.

But, Fleming delayed his choice
of a new vice president until a
settlement of the by-law issue
could be reached.
However, as no agreement be-
tween Fleming, SGC and the Re-
gents was forthcoming, all five
candidates either withdrew from
consideration or were rejected for
the post.
After the compromise by - law
was finally approved in July,
Fleming, in a highly criticized
move, went outside the committee
and unilaterally appointed Knauss
to the vice presidential p o s t.
Knauss had been interviewed, but
rejected, by the original search
SGC endorsed the appointment,
however, when Knauss indicated
he would accept all policy board
While the vice president for
student services is supposed to be
a spokesman for students, he is
also a part of the administration
-putting him in somewhat of a
bind if some conflict should arise
between the two groups.
Further, without explicit rulings
that the vice president must abide
by the board's decisions, these con-
flicts could place him in an even
more awkward position.
As a result, most student lead-
ers emphasize that the new vice
president must be a person who
will accept decisions of the OSS
policy board.
OSS reviewed
(Continued from Page 1)
Policy board members have
commented that one of their prin-
ciple difficulties in the coming
years will be to convince the Re-
gents that policy board decisions,
as administered by the vice presi-
dent, should have the same fi-
nality as decisions made by other
executive officers.
Another threat to the suprem-
acy of the OSS board, according
to some members, is the possibill-
ity that its members will not be
sufficiently asquainted with the
operation of various OSS units to
formulate policies, especially in
the area of determining budgets.
They fear that unless members
are willing to spend sufficient time
to learn about OSS operation, the
board will become a rubber stamp
for the unit directors and other
OSS staff members.
The OSS policy board consists
of five students, four faculty mem-
bers, and the vice president for
student services who acts as non-
voting chairman.

with 15 to 25 strikes.

is working with the city on a plan
for curbside pickup of recyclable
solid waste all over town. Support
for such a program has grown
following a successful six-week
"pilot program" operated by the
DPW and the Neighborhood Youth
Corps. Through the program,
NYC members picked up glass,
cans and paper around the city
before. regular garbage collections.
A shift in responsibility for
glass, can and paper collection and
recycling, from the Ecology Cen-
ter to the city, is the chief goal
of Pat Taylor, new recycling co-
ordinator for the center. He hopes
to work out some plan with the
city so people can recycle on a
simple, convenient and permanent
daily basis. 1

gram's glass pick-up, Taylor has

Fate of extra
funds disputed
(Continued from Page 1)
According to state law, the gov-
ernor has the power to cut appro-
priations by three per cent at any
time within the fiscal year if he
deems it expedient.
Last November, Milliken ordered
a one per cent cut in the UnivW-
sity's general fund appropriation,
and later ordered another one half
per cent cut in January.
Yesterday, however, Milliken
told reporters he is confident the
jstate "has moved to such a point
that we are near a balanced bud-
get"-and discounted the possil-
ity of cutbacks later in the year.
Only one week ago, Milliken had
blasted what he termed "a tend-
ency for self-indulgence" on the
part of the legislators, and threat-
ened to veto major appropriation
bills to prevent a state deficit this
The governor - now, h o w e v er,
seems assured that the two-and-
one-half month overdue state bud-
get can be balanced at a level of
about $2.07 billion.
Others apparently are not as
optimistic as the governor.
Sen. Charles Zollar (R-Benn
Harbor) predicted yesterday that
overestimation of revenues would
cause the governor to order cut-
backs by January.
If the full three per cent cut
were ordered on the University's
$78.1 million appropriation, it
would deprive the University %f
about $2.3 million.
