ILLIKEN LETTER:
State wage cut may affect 'U'

DAILY

Approved: That University of Mich-
igan Youth for Understanding R e.
OFFICIAL turnees be recognized as a student or-

By MARK DILLEN
Daily News Analysis
request Monday by Gov. Wil-
d Milliken asking for cuts in
e increases for state employesl
ears to be another indication
t the University will not receive
substantial increase in statej
ds next year.,
i an unprecedented letter to
e legislators, Milliken askedl
t the 8.1 per cent average wage
e, effective July 1 and approv-

- ed by the four-man state civil
service commission (SCSC), be re-
duced to 6.5 per cent.
Though such action would tech-
nically affect only the 47,000 state
employes, the SCSC's recommen-
dation is commonly used as a
guideline for evaluating budget
requests from various state de-
partments.
This recommendation, accord-
ing to Sen. Gary Byker (R-23rd
District), acting chairman of the

case, and presented the jury with
different versions of the incident,
disagreeing on questions about
where the defendant and the po-
licemen were and what they were
doing at the time of the incident.
Bunten claimed that the man
who threw the brick was not wear-
ing a hat. However, a photograph
submitted by the defense showed
that Harrison wore a hat during
the incident.
It was also charged that Har-
rison had been holding a brick
when he was wrestled to the
ground by police officers prior to
his arrest. Defense photographs
seemed to refute this allegation.
Other prosecution testimony de-
scribed the man who threw the
brick as appearing to weigh about'
165 pounds. Harrison, according

Harrison has claimed that dur-
ing the incident he was the victim
of police brutality.
City Attorney Jerold D. Lax tes-
tified about a committee he was
on that investigated allegations by
several witnesses who claimed that
Harrison was beaten with a night-
stick after he had already been
pinned down by another officer.
The committee recommended
that no action be taken against
the officer, citing the "extenuat-
ing" situation surrounding the in-
cident, including the hostility of
the crowd toward the police, and
the tense atmosphere.
The report also denied that Har-
rison was actually hit with the
nightstick, claiming that the of-
ficer, Patrolman John Pear, missed
him, and hit the ground.
A news film of the incident was
presented to the court by the pro-
secution as evidence. The film
showed Corporal Gary Geer on
top of Harrison when Pear took
two swings at Harrison with his
nightstick.,
The first swing was deflected by
Geer who appeared to be attempt-
ing to protect Harrison.
The second swing showed Har-
rison jerk his head away as the
club came near his head. It was
not clear whether Harrison had
moved his head to avoid the club,
or if he was recoiling from the
blow.

Senate Appropriations Committee,
serves as a "pattern" in deter-
mining incr eased allocations
among other wage groups.
State university faculties and
public-school teachers are among
these groups. If they were to be
included in an average wage in-
crease limit of 6.5 per cent, Milli-
ken said, it would save $26 mil-
lion in next year's state budget.
The University, still feeling the
effects of self-imposed cuts and
austerity measures made in order
to meet this year's expenses, has
asked for $22 million increase in
state appropriations for fiscal
1971-72.
While University officials did'
not expect to receive the full
amount, Milliken's request indi-
cates a bleak outlook for a sub-
stantial increase.
Just how much Milliken and
the Legislature will trim from the
University's request of $95.6 mil-
lion remains unclear.
However, the appropriations re-
quest made by the Regents last
September and due to come before
the Legislature in early February.
earmarks $10 million of the pro-
posed increase for salary hikes-
far over the governor's eight per
cent figure.
Generally, t h e University's
spending habits are directly re-
lated to those of the state. With
both fighting to avoid threatened
deficits this year, both are like-
wise planning conservative for
'71-72.
The University has ordered each
of its departments to prepare a
budget with cuts of at least three
per cent, according to Vice-Presi-
dent for Academic Affairs Alan
Smith.

faculty member was a defendant.
The committee that drafted-the
proposal recommended that both
plans for the presiding panel be
incorporated in the final judicial
plan, with each being used for
half of the one-year experimental
period of the new judiciary.
Other changes proposed by SGC
include altering the composition
of the proposed Court of Appeals
from equal numbers of students
and faculty members to 90 per
cent students and 10 per cent
faculty.
Council also urged the elimina-
tion of the section of the draft
which grants the president of the
University clemency power, and
proposed that the power be given
to the president of SGC, for con-
victed students, and the chairman
of Senate Assembly, for convicted
faculty members.

In effect, by bracing for cuts in
state appropriations, and making
cuts of its own, the University
hopes to have a margin that will
guarantee substantial raises for
faculty regardless of the state's
contribution.
