Former Daily editor and warj

ERIM before the commission
meeting, attacked the institute
for "helping to develop the
electronic battlefield and aid-
ing the U. S. in their role as
international policemen trying
to stifle national liberation
movements around the world."
Bruce Cameron, organizer for
the anti-ERIM group, told thej
commissioners, "ERIM de-

the colonial Third World, term-
ing ERIM's activities "search
and destroy technology."
ALSO SPEAKING to the com-
mission, Barbra Fuller, spokes-
woman for the Interfaith Coun-
cil for Peace, said, "We are

Although not elated by the
commissioners' move, Brown
commented, "I have nothing
against going to the people." He
predicted the proposal would
have a good chance of winning.
Yet he emphasized that he
would need to raise the request
to $3.2 million in bonds to help
pay $150,000 refinancing penalty

Elizabeth T a y I o r expressed
guarded optimism over the

approve of the final resolution
to place the ERIM bond issue

that the proposal must be re-

county clerk.

to the board now that it will beI
controlled by Democrats by a
five-to-three margin. However,
he noted that the Democrats
have a majority in the legisla-
ture and said he hoped the
state would not move to slash
the University's budget for next
year by four per cent as Milli-
ken has proposed.
D U R I N G THE campaign,
Democrats tended to stress pro-
posals for ending alleged dis-
crimination against women and
minority groups by the Univer-
sity, while Republicans have
stressed financial problems.
"My main concern is that the
University must not be permit-
ted to continue its present racist
and sexist policies," says Pow-
er, the daughter-in-law of for-
mer Regent Eugene Power. She
argues that the University "has
not been meeting its responsi-
bilities in hiring blacks and wo-
men" and points out that there
is only one black female pro-
fessor at the University.
Power vows support for in-
creased minority enrollment.
She argues that the University
has been "very derelict" in
efforts to recruit minorities,
particularly in the Detroit area.
Democrats have also indicated
strong support for clerical work-
ers and teaching assistants in

their demands for higher wages.
Republican regents have de-
clined to indicate whether or
not they will support pay hikes.
ROACH AND Power have also
proposed a comprehensive stu-
dent loan plan which would
make funds available to most
incoming students, not just
those in the lowest income
bracket. The funds would be
handled through local banks and
would cover most University
tuition and room and board
According to Roach, "The
plan would help bridge the gap
between student needs and tui-
tion costs." He adds that the
proposal is "basically a zero
cost plan. There will have to be
an initial outlay of funds, of
c o u r s e, but experience has
shown that most students repay
the loans."
Nevertheless, P o w e r and
Roach have been vague on the
subject of where to cut the
budget in order to fund pay
boosts and loosen the Univer-
sity's tight financial sitaution.
