Fleming attacks funding

(Continued from Page 1)

"Perhaps more than anything
else," added Fleming, "changing social
priorities have simply shifted monies
away from higher education into other
Fleming pointed to two problems
caused by the state's present formula
funding apparatus.
"A FAIR formula which takes into
account the essential elements is likely
to be more costly than the state is
prepared to fund," said Fleming. "The
residual level of underfunding for the
Ann Arbor campus this year was 14 per

"The other problem with formula
funding, from our point of view, is that
it is enormously difficult to gain
recognition for what it is that makes a
university like the University of
Michigan great. There is a blind faith
that somehow the University will main-
tain its place in the firmament of the
world's great universities by some kind
of little-understood magic. There is no
magic in the stature of the University of
Michigan. Quality in universities, like
quality in anything else, is costly."
Fleming listed several goals that
could achieve a higher rate of revenue
flowing into the University.

FLEMING said he wanted to do a bet-
ter job of educating the people of the
state about how the University is fun-
ded and "intensify and expand our ef-
forts at private fundraising."
Fleming said that because of "urgent
financial needs" the administration is
considering the possiblility of another
major University-wide capital cam-
paign. A similar campaign in 1966
raised $55 million.
The President pointed to statistics
that show a projected rapid decline in
incoming freshpeople over the next.17
years. He said the Ann Arbor campus
could absorb the enrollment loss with
only minor cuts in the faculty.
OF THE ANTI-WAR years, Fleng
said, "To deromanticize the past
decade is not to deny its accomplish-
ments. The change in public attitudes
toward women and minorities and the
increased accessibility to them of both
the universities and career opp r-
tunities must certainly be counted, on
the distinctly plus side.
"But the fact remains that many of
the mindless activities of that period
have not only hurt higher education
badly in terms of public support, but
have also tarred education's image."

Before President Fleming entered the League to deliver his State of the University address, he was greeted outside by
-'picketing Graduate Employes Organization (GEO) members. The picketers were protesting because the University has
failed to recognize them as the sole bargaining authority for graduate employesat the University.

BELGRADE, Yugoslavia (AP) -
The United States and the Soviet
Union sit down with 33 other nations
today to review the 1975 Helsinki
accords. The two superpowers seem
anxious to avoid a clash over human
rights, but Russian dissidents are
pressing the issue.
The conference was convened to
check how the signatory nations have
complied with the agreement
reached in Helsinki, Finland, on
European security and cooperation.
The accords recognized post-World
War II boundaries in Europe, thus
tacitly accepting Soviet influence in
the East. In exchange, Western
countries obtained provisions they
view as promises of greater civil
liberties-in the East bloc.
THE REVIEW meeting is opening
amid some signs of improving U.S.-
Soviet relations. The two countries
appear to be making progress toward
a new strategic arms limitation
treaty and have taken a joint stand in
urging resumption of the Geneva
Middle East peace conference.
"Many things seem rather to be
coming together," said a European
diplomat. "Linkage with the Bel-
grade conference is not necessarily
direct but all the things are related.
Soviet-American relations are the
centerpiece of detente."
The chief U.S. delegate, former
U.N. Ambassador Arthur Goldberg,
said on arrival here he will not seek a
confrontation with Moscow. But he
promises to report that the Soviet
Union's record of compliance with
Helsinki'shuman rights provisions
shows limited advances and some
THE SOVIETS also appear eager

to avoid fireworks. In Moscow, a
spokesman for the Foreign Ministry
said Monday the Kremlin wants the
conference "to be a coistructive dis-
cussion, not a hostile polemic . . . a
boxing ring."
But the leading spokesman for
Soviet dissidents, Andrei Sakharov,
said in an open message to Belgrade
delegates that the Soviets are violat-
ing human rights as a "test" of the
West's "firmness and consistency."
"Is the West ready to defend these
high and vitally important prin-
ciples?" he asked in the statement
issued in Moscow. He called on
delegates to demand the release of
Soviet political prisoners.
According to the National Science
Foundation, the University ranks first
amongstate-supported universities in
the nation in terms'of full-time scien-
tists and engineers employed (3,041),
and first among all universities in
women scientists and engineers (732).

hon does not oppose the compromise ef-

to send Mondale to the Senate to try to
break the impasse disheartened the fili-
busterers, who previously had boasted
of White House support for their tactics.
"Without support of the administra-
tion, it doesn't seem to make sense,"
Metzenbaum said.
And Abourezk agreed, saying, "it
would have been a matter of a
'relatively short time before it would
have ended, anyway."
Earlier, Abourezk had accused Presi-
dent Carter of betraying those who
favored the administration plan. "We
have had the rug pulled out from under
us by the President of the United
States," he said.

many areas of the country, she said.
Wright echoed Toy's statement that
the decision "can be a breakthrough"
since it gives a clear statement for the
first time in years.
A spokesperson for the Gay Com-
munity Service who asked to remain
anonymous said "there have always
been, are now, and will continue to be
gay teachers, ranging from good to
bad." But, the spokesperson said,
"sexual orientation is unrelated to
teaching performance."

At Byrd's request, Mondale ruled out
of order more than 30 of the filibust-
erers' more than 200 remaining amend-
ments, one by one, until cries of outrage
from senators of both parties stopped
the process.
With Abourezk shouting, "This is a
steamroller, a steamroller," Mondale
ignored all other senators seeking rec-
ognition as Byrd began going through
the stack of amendments.
SENATORS clamored for recogni-
tion, but Mondale continued to recog-
nize only Byrd. Sen. William Hathaway
(D-Maine) unsuccessfully moved for
the Senate to adjourn, but Mondale ig-
nored that motion, too.
When other senators finally managed
to get the floor in the chaotic-session,
member after member condemned the
tactics as unorthodox and damaging to
the Senate's reputation as a delibera-
tive body.
Sen. Edmund Muskie (D-Maine) ac-
cused Byrd of "changing the rules in

Sarbanes (D-Md.) said Byrd was trying
"to establish a dictatorship in the Sen-
ate," Sen. Gary Hart, (D-Colo.) said
Byrd and Mondale had engaged in "an
outrageous act."
But Byrd, his voice breaking with
emotion, his hands quivering, told the
Senate: "I've not abused leadership,
I'm trying to keep senators from
abusing the Senate."
