Student leaders offer,
activity center plans

By BRIAN BLANCHARD'
The Regents yesterday approved the
administration's recommendation for a
$30.7 million 1978-79 budget increase re-
quest. The hike, if approved by the state
legislature, would rocket the Univer-
sity's budget to $130 million.
The eight-member governing board
also okayed a slate of large construc-
tion projects, which likewise need ap-
proval in Lansing.
BEFORE LEAVING for a tour of the
University's Flint campus, the Regents
heard student representatives offer
seven plans for easing the student ac-
tivities space crunch.
Regent Deane Baker (R-Ann Arbor)
expressed doubt that state representa-
tives would allow the budget increase,
particularly the $21.5 million bonus to
University employes in wages and work
benefits.
Even after the boost to staff health
insurance, workers' compensation and
Social Security funds, the University
gives its staff the lowest benefits of all
Michigan state universities, said James
Brinkerhoff, vice president for finance.
After a lunch break, the Regents ap-
proved a '78-'79 list of projects to the
state that include a $40 million power
plant, an $8.5 million Center for Public
Policy Studies, and a $400,000 remodel-
ing plan for the pharmacy building.
THE CAPITAL outlay approval
finished action for the day, and the
two student representatives took the
opportunity to talk to the Regents'
about space proposals.
"The University of .Michigan is
negligent in providing for adequate
space outside of the classroom," said
Scott . Kellman, former Michigan
Student Assembly head. Kellman
and University Activities Center
(UAC) President Steve Carnevale
charged that the Union makes stu-
dents "feel like intruders" by using
"archaic" policy.
Carnevale said the Michigan Union
is mismanaged, that "everything is
charged to overhead" so that one

cannot tell what services are losing
money.C Carnevale said the Union is a
high-priced, low-volume business
that could be improved.
UNION rules, including its fire
regulations, are outdated, said Car-
nevale.
In an interview later in the day,
Union manager Stanfield Wells said
the statements were "completely un-
true." Wells said the Board of

"Two or three proposals" for reor-
ganizing the imperiled Speech and
Hearing Sciences (SHS) program
will be presented to the Regents to-
day, according to Vice-President for
Academic Affairs Harold Shapiro.
SHS and Medical School adminis-
trators, who recommended last De-
cember that the University scrap the
SHS undergraduate and graduate
degrees, expressed surprise when
informed by The Daily yesterday
that a presentation regarding the
program's fate was planned for
today's Regents' meeting.. .
"IT'S NEWS to me," said Donald
Sharf, SHS acting director.
Medical School Associate Dean
Robert Green also had not received
word about the planned briefing
before the Regents, though both
administrators were expecting Sha-
piro's office to draft a recommenda-
tion on SHS's fate by today.

4ngry backlash sweeps S. Africa

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa
(AP) - Police gunfire wounded a
black youth yesterday as disturb-
ances and protests flared across
South Africa following the govern-
ment's crackdown on the black press
and black protest movements and
leaders.
Even Afrikaaner academics joined
the wide condemnation of the govern-.
ment by opposition whites and the
opposition press. Some warned the
country is becoming a police state
headed toward bloody racial conflict.
BUT GEN. H. J. van den Berg,
head of the powerful Bureau of State
Security, declared that even tougher
action will be taken if the current un-
rest continues. He said there could be
more arrests and restrictions.
At the United Nations in New
York, the 49-nation African Group
announced it would ask the U.N.
Security Council .to take up "the
question of South Africa . . . as soon
as possible."
In its toughest action since the
early 1960s, South Africa's white
government on Wednesday banned
virtually all significant black organi-
zations, closed the two principal
black newspapers, detained more
than 50 prominent blacks and
slapped restriction orders on seven
whites.
CLOSING of the white-owned
World and Weekend World news-
papers meant urban blacks, already
living under severe government ra-
cial restrictions, lost the publications
regarded as most closely mirroring
their grievances and aspirations. The,
papers carried the most extensive re-
porting in the country of black unrest
and boycotts.
Also wiped out, at least officially,
were all black consciousness move-
ments, including black-run self-help
community programs. Their offices
have been closed, their assets frozen,

and most of their leaders detained.
The wdunding of the youth yester-
day occurred when police fired on
protesters outside Graaff-Reinet, a
town in Cape province 500 miles
south of Johannesburg. Riot police
chief Maj. Gen. Dawid Kriel said po-
lice fired after 300 youths gathered at
a primary school near the town and
began stoning cars.
KRIEL reported 13 arrests at
various disturbances across the
country.
One trouble spot was the black
township of Sharpeville, 36 miles
south of Johannesburg where in 1960
a total of 67 blacks was killed by
police gunfire in the Country's first
major racial disturbance.

Principal J. Makhokolo of Sharpe-
ville's Lekoa-Shandu high school said
students wrote slogans on black-
boards denouncing Bantu black edu-
cation and chanted nationalist slo-
gans , in the schoolyard before
streaming out to stone passing cars.
SIX YOUTHS were arrested, Kriel
said, in Pretoria's black townships,
scene of continuing unrest with mili-
tants reported by police to be intimi-
dating some high schoolers who want
to attend classes.
The government crackdown elicit-
ed foreign criticism, including hard-
line statements from the Carter
Administration in Washington.
Prime Minister John Vorster said
American criticism of his govern-

ment is "irrelevant." Speaking last
night to cheering supporters at Al-
berton, Vorster claimed full respon-
sibility for the moves.,
"I am not interested (in. what
America thinks about my moves),"
he continued. "As far as I am con-
cerned, it is totally irrelevant. The
Jimmy Carter Administration has
for 10 months now been trying to
make policy for us."
When asked Wednesday by a
television interviewer whether he
had estimated negative reaction
abroad, Justice and Prisons Minister
James Kruger said, "I am afraid
that the public image may well be
tarnished overseas."
