ROTC

board

By GERI SPRUNG
Engineering Council last night withdrew its representa-
tives from the committee which will oversee ROTC programs
at the University.
After a lively hour-long debate, council members voted
24-12 to rescind a motion passed two weeks ago which had
complied with President Robben Fleming's request for a list
of student nominees for the new committee.
According to Engineering Council President Sonny Co-
hen, the motion was reconsidered last night because "a
number of members felt debate was cut off last time with-
out giving everyone time to express their views."

State
rejects
By JIM McFERSON
The state House Appropria-
tions Committee yesterday re-
jected Gov. William Milliken's
proposed emergency budget
cut-a proposal that would
have left all state appropria-
tions to the University for the
current fiscal year intact.
The budget cut-$58.5 million-
was proposed by Milliken to meet
an expected loss in state revenue
due to the strike against General
Motors, and to the national eco-
nomic slowdown.
Milliken's proposal would have
trimmed nearly $2.7 million in
appropriations to five other state
universities, but would not have
cut the University's appropriation.
However, it appeared that both
the Senate and House Appropria-
tions committees favored some
across-the-board action to cut the
appropriations to all state colleges
and universities.
The S e n a t e Appropriations
Committee, with a majority of
Republicans, indicated general ac-
deptance of Milliken's proposal. 1
But Sen. Charles Zollar (R-Ben-
ton Harbor), chairman of the
Senate Appropriations Committee,
noted that a $3.5 million gap was
left by the governor for later ac-
Ltion, and sugested it be financed
by a "freeze" on hiring and staff
travel allowances at the major
universities.
This suggestion was concurred
to by Rep. William Copeland, (D-
W y a n d o t t e) chairman of the
HousenAppropriations Committee.
But unlike the Senate committee,
the House committee favored ad-
ditional cuts from the budgets of

The spiritual message of his

,Most University students who have gov-

be eligible for federal subsidies if President
Nixon's proposals on the subject are ap-
pl-oved by Congress next year.
Under the guaranteed loan program, the
government pays the interest on loans bor-
rowed from banks by some 2,000 Univer-
sity students.

Nixon has proposed that the interest sub-
sidy be scrapped, as part of an effort to re-
direct federal aid programs to lower in-

The money made available through sav-

.The declared aim of the Nixon propos-

to pay college expenses as students with

Supporters of the Nixon proposals argue
that with the limited resources available
to aid students, more money should be
spent where the most need is, rather than
