dent and faculty groups, who de-
manded increased representat-

Soon after, the commission
was reordered to contain four
faculty members, four students,
two executive officers and two
members of the Academic Af-
fairs Advisory Council, which
consists of the deans of the Uni-
versity's 17 schools and colleges
and the directors of the various
This settlement, however, did
not satisfy Student Government
Council (SGC). President Robben
Fleming was to receive from
SGC a list of student nominees
from which he was to select four
students to fill the posts.
SGC refused to submit the list,
maintaining that four students
would not provide the proper
representation of the student
community and that, in any
event, it should be able to 'ap-
point the four students outright.
SGC President Marty Scott
said last night, however, that due
to the urgency of the University's
present budget problem SGC will
shortly submit the list of names
to President Fleming for approv-

The burget problem which has
raised the ire of the entire Uni-
versity community began last
month, when Milliken proposed
a bare $2.8 million increase in
the state's appropriation ,to the
University for the next fiscal
year beginning July 1-a figure
falling drastically short of the
University's $22 million request-
The appropriations request pre-
sents a severe financial dilemma
for the University. With a state
austerity cut of 1.75 per cent
from the University's $69 million
allocation for the current fiscal
year, University officials were,
counting on a sizeable increase
to offset current economy mea-
Milliken's appropriations re-
quest is presently being consid-
ered by the Legislature in con-
text with the entire state bud-
get. It will probably be approved
sometime in April, .-and, if the
past several years are any indi-
cation, the Legislature will in
fact cut the governor's education
Thus, the $2.8 million increase
effectively represents the maxi-
mum which the University could
receive from the state-and it
could well be much less.
Althougn it is not yet clear just
how much clout the commission
will have in budgetary matters,
most of the members rope that
its eventual role will be signifi-
cant, believing that the commis-
sion's task has taken on a "sense
of urgency" because of the pres-
ent budget crisis.
Since it has begun meeting on
a regular basis this term, the
commission has spent most of its
time in a "learning process"
concerning all aspects of the Uni-
-p Presently the commission is
carefully going over the budget
in detail, in order to become ac-
quainted with its workings, Suss-
At its last meeting, the com-
mission met with representatives
of the Faculty Reform Coalition,
a group of over 200 faculty inem-
bers attempting to increase fac-
ulty influence in University de-
Pierpont, who says the com-
mission has a "real focus of at-
tention" in the present budget
crisis, explains that. it will
"eventually hopefully be getting
involved in actual substantive is-
sues of budget-making."

tion of the commissolon as great-

wire service in U'
By HANNAH MORRISON
Establishment of a nationwide electronic news service
to provide broader television and radio coverage was pro-
posed yesterday by Fred Friendly, former CBS News Presi-
dent, in a speech to 500 people in Rackham Aud.
"My purpose," he said, "is to stimulate a dialogue that
may result in a serious study of a more effective use of the
manpower, equipment and funds now available to broad-
cast news organizations."
Friendly described television coverage as being "over-
exposed and underdeveloped . . . due to an awkward and
often archaic system of news gathering which favors bulk
footage and costly duplication.
He suggested that the electronic new service operate
for television news bureaus as the major wire services now
do for newspapers. "J o i n t coverage of non-competitive
events would free the correspondents and cameramen to
cover the important, not merely the urgent," Friendly said.
He outlined the structure of the proposed news service
coming .. .

zations in cities throughout

Friendly suggested that a pre-
liminary study of his proposal be
financed by several foundations.
The results of the study would be
used by the television networks.
In a press conference preceed-
ing his speech, Friendly mentioned
ways in which newspapers and lo-
cal radio and television stations
might benefit from the news ser-
vice. "Local coverage would im-
prove, if reporters were able to
view the events, as well as receiv-
ing them over the wire," he said.
Friendly was highly critical of
the present handling of televis-
ion news. "It deserves an A for
effort but far less for perform-
ance," he said, blaming the Fed-
eral Communications Commission
and increased cost of air time.
"The problem," he said, "is too
much money and not enough good
programming. Right now, no one
is happy with broadcasting, espec-
ially since it has let people like
Agnew get away with intellectual

Murrow Professor of Journalism
at Columbia University.
