'U' deficit

to result in cutbacks

(Continued from Page 1)
enrollment is down a slight amount,"
Shapiro said, but he pinned most of the
blame on the fact that students are
electing fewer credit hours.
When the budget was approved by the
Regents last summer University ad-
ministrators were alerted to the fact
that $1.2 million would have to be pared
from various areas of the budget. The
additional $1.5 million deficit created
by the drop in tuition, however, came as
an unexpected surprise.
"WE DIDN'T fully anticipate that
this could happen," Shapiro said.
Shapiro added that budget projec-
tions are approximations subject to
change--such as reduced tuition in-
come-and said the deficit figure could
change again.
Shapiro said some of the deficit will
be made up by a surplus of funds the
University has from its energy budget.
He did not say how much the surplus
amounted to.
James Lesch, director of research

development and administration, does
not anticipate his area of concern will
suffer and crippling cutbacks despite
Shapiro's claim that the area will
probably be affected by cuts. "I don't
see a major impact on research," said
Lesch. "A good amount is sponsored by
outside sources.'
LESCH SAID no more than $8 million
of the University's total research ex-
penditure of $76 million comes from
general fund.
Assistant Financial Aid Director
James Zimmerman was also optimistic
about the effect of the deficit on his
"We haven't been notified of the
amounts (of budget reductions) yet,"
said Zimmerman, "but I don't think it
will affect any of the aid programs this
year. .
Shapiro said that even though the
deficit was caused largely by a tuition
shortfull, tuition rates will not
necessarily be increased as compen-

assessment, he said, "we'll know how
they really write, rather than how
they're reputed to write."
"The quality of writing has definitely
slipped in the past ten to fifteen years,
said History ProfessoraLouis Orlin. He
feels the new program will "force
departments to take a look at the paper
writing in their courses."
Jay Robinson, chairman of the

English department, says he feels this
will "put pressure on school boards to
adequately prepare students at the high
school level."
Although the final vote was nearly
unanimous-there were only three
dissenting votes out of approximately
250-some faculty members raised
Physics Professor Alfred Hendel said
there is "no evidence that it will work,"
adding that the whole program is based

on "wishful thinking."

would be obtained. Members of the
English Composition Board explained
that most of the work load will be
shared by current senior faculty mem-
bers, but that graduate students will be
made available to assist.
Student government representatives,
also expressed fear that'the professors
in some departments may not have the
necessary experience to teach English.
"I think they overestimate the com-
petence of the faculty," said Jim
Sullivan of LSA Student Government
(1nA-SG). Hendelnsarcastically
suggested that faculty. members and
teaching assistants be required to take
the entrance assessment along with en-
tering freshpersons.
Some reaction tothe new set of
requirements was extremely
favorable, however. LSA Dean Billy
Frye called the program "tremen-
dous," saying he is "very, very
pleased." LSA-SG President Dick
Brazee lauded it as, "the most positive,
most unified effort this college has
made in three years."

the new requirements are "very hear-
