SGC

Half-Fiscal

Year

Fnancial

Statement

OR, HERE'S WHAT'S HAPPENING TO YOUR MONEY .. .
A REPORT TO THE STUDENT BODY, BY ELLIOT CHIKOFSKY, Treasurer of Student Government Council

For the first time in the recent history of mankind, fi-
nancial statements of Student Government Council, the long-
time bastion of fiscal irresponsibility and student apathy,
have been published for student body inspection.
SGC receives 75c per student per term via an assess-
ment on the tuition bill. 30c per student per term (40%)
is committed to the SGC Legal Advocate Program. SGC elec-
tions currently draw about 1,200 student voters who elect
"representatives" to decide how to expend (or most often
waste) over $50,000 a year contributed by UM's 36,000 cur-
rent students.
Simply, this money belongs to all of us and we deserve
a proper accounting of every penny and some sort of repre-
sentation in deciding how it's spent. These statements re-
present the state of SGC finances for the first half of the
1974-75 fiscal year. For the first time in a long sordid his-
tory, SGC is financially "in the black", and (believe it or
not) spent less in the last six months than it took in! (Better
look quick before it disappears! Historic miracles are few
and far between at this University.)

UNDERRATED MICHIGAN wrestler Bill Schuck (left), who specializes in coming out on the
long end of short scores, gained one of his biggest triumphs in this m a t c h last February
against Oklahoma's Brian Beatson. Schuck's 3-2 decision over his Sooner foe, who later earn-
ed all-Ameria ranking for finishing sixth in the NCAA tournament at 142 lbs, was indispens-
able in a narrow 17-15 Wolverine win over the eventual national champions.

By RICK BONINO !
The man in blue dropped
the man in yellow to the mat
amidst a flurry of cheers from'
the Crisler Arena faithful. Mid-
way through the third period,
the first takedown of the in-
tense match gave the man in
blue his first lead. And al-
though the opponent escaped
his grasp nearly a minute later,
the takedown proved decisive.
BILL SCHUCK had won an-
other big one, perhaps the big-
gest of his career. He had tak-
en on Northwestern's Midlands
tournament champion Andre
Allen, a superb 142 - pounder,
and won, 4-2.
It was a big night for Bill
Schuck. It was also Schuck's
I most recent appearance. Side-
lined with torn rib cartilage,
courtesy of Allen, Schuck has
watched and waited for three
weeks.
Friday night, when top-ranked
Iowa hits town, the aggressive
142-pounder can take another
step toward establishing Big
Ten supremacy.

as they come up."
"I try thinking more in prac-
tice. You go over situations and.
think about them so when they.
pop up in a match it's more re-
action than thinking."
Schuck's practice attitude
has changed greatly this sea-
son.
"My first three years, I liked
wrestling but I didn't enjoy
practice," Schuck said. "Team
captain Dave Curby inspired
me - he enjoys working, he
gives 120 per cent all the time.
I got into that routine, too."
SCHUCK'S CAREER has

the championship.
This year could be different.
Lawinger is gone, and Allen
vanquished. Schuck's final re-
venge can come against Iowa's
Brad Smith, who with Schuck
and Allen forms the Big Ten
elite at 142.
Smith, who defeated Schuck
in this year's Midlands, knows
who he'll be wrestling Friday
night. No one walks away from
a match with Schuck without a
lasting impression.
"SCHUCK'S AN extremely
physical wrestler," said Michi-
gan coach Bill, Johannesen.

- NOTES -
( 1) Parentheses indicate negative figures.
(2) 75c per student per term with 30c (40%) committed to the SGC
Leaal Advocate Program.
(3) SGC can allocate its funds to anyone by a motion with 2/3 roll call
vote of the members in favor upon second redoing. Any constituent
may presentma motion for "first reading" at 9 p.m. at the SGC
meeting any Thursday night of the term.
(4) SGC received a credit from Michigan Bell for phone calls by former
officers on an SGC telephone credit card. Such cards no longer exist.
(5) The SGC Legal Advocate Program contributes to general SGC office
expenses at a rate of 40%. the same rate at which it receives funds
from the tuition assessment.
(6) This represents the lowest cost of an SGC election in years. Recent
elections ranoed in price anywhere from $7,000 to $25,000. At
$2,700. the October 1974 election (with about 1,200 student vot-
ers) reflects the cheapest recent election while overoainq over $2.25
per vote cast.
(7) SGC subsidizes campaians of SGC candidates to up to $30 per can-
didate with a maximum of $1 50 per slate. I consider this a waste of
student money to finance the compainns of candidates running in an
election where hardly anyone votes. For the second vear in a row, I
have introduced a motion to delete compaian subsidies.
(8) SGC is incorporated as a non-profit corporation under the laws of
the State of Michiaan.
(9) SGC maintained, until recently, computer accounts for tabulation of
SGC election results. Charges listed were the cost of maintaining the
file for the ballot counting program. These computer accounts no
longer exist. Current controversy surrounds the closing of the ac-
counts and the. ooenina of a new one by the SGC Executive Vice
President. apoarently without the knowledge or consent of SGC or
other officers.
(10) This represents insurance aaoinst financial rip-offs by current
or future SGC officers. Only the President and Treasurer iointly may
disburse funds, and both are covered by bond.
(11) This transoortation expense reflects the fact thgt, at the decision of
the SGC officers present durina the summer. the chairperson of the
Student Organizations Board was flown back to Ann Arbor during
summer vacation to coordinate student oooosition at the July Re-
cents meetina to an administration prooosal titled "Guidelines for
Use of University Facilities" which, as presented, would have meant
almost total control of the finances of student organizations by the
Universitv.
(12) There it is folks! SGC spent $7,498.20 less than it received while
accounting for over $5,000 in back debts.
(13) To brina this up to date, SGC has since 1 January 1974 allocated
$4,530.00 to organizations. $30 went to East Wind, $500.00 to
Tenant's Union, and $4,000.00 to Child Care Action Center (the
only compus child care center). The child care allocation was the
result of a petition drive with over 1,000 current students signing.
(14) SGC will receive at least Z22.500.00 from the tuition assme.nt
for Winter term. 40% ($9,000) is committed to the SGC Legal
Advocate Program.

stocky, but he is well-mus-
cled and knows how to use

"Wrestling is brutal some-
times," Schuck admits. "I don't
consider myself a mean guy
off the mat, but you do what
you can to win."
"Bill is a real pounder,"
Johannesen continued. "He
just goes out and hurts people."
UNFORTUNATELY,
Schuck also gets hurt. The ribs
were just another in a long
line of college injuries. They
bother him little now, though,
and he feels ready for Iowa.
"I'm not the kind of person
who gets fat easily," Schuck
said. "I've done a lot of ex-
ercising since I've been out and
I'll be ready."
SCHUCK'S long - range fu-
tire may lie in helping others
get ready. The senior BGS ma-
jor has been taking pre-med
courses.
But for Schuck and the rest
of the Michigan squad, the fu-
ture now is Crisler Arena Fri-
day night.
"The home advantage will
help," Schuck said. "We'll be
more relaxed."
Relaxation is a luxury Brad
Smith can ill afford Friday
night. If he does he may never
know what hit him.
