How MSA uses your money

Emporium: kawking hocus-pocus


(Continued from Page 1)
fact that sudents are being of-
fered the option of not paying
the MSA fee. This practice of
".volunteer funding" began for
MSA last September.
Between 1971 and 1975, various
officers of SGC-MSA's prede-
cessor-were charged with mis-
use of more than $60,000 worth
of Council funds and fraud in
almost every election. Some de-
fended themselves virulently
against embezlement charges
with such proclamations as Bill
Schaper's, treasurer in 1972: "I
rigged- elections, I screwed peo-
ple left and right, but I never,
never took money."
SGC at theendof 1975 after a
USA rose from the ruins of
string of financial and electoral
misdoings which had most of
the campus questioning the va-
lidity of student government.
ficials prepared a $33,700 bud-
get this year, based on projec-
tions of how many students will
donate their 75 cent share.
The projected total iL sent to
the University's Student Ac-
counts Office, which loans MSA
the money. When bills are paid,
the MSA loan is paid back di-
rectly through the students. If
the total of the actual income of
funds differs from the projected
total, the figures are balanced

later, according to MSA Budget
Priorities Committee Chairman
G.. J. DiGiuseppe.
DiGiuseppe points out that
MSA's revenues and expendi-
tures are not as complex as they
FOR EXAMPLE, from a $33,-
700 budget, one-third-or $11,200
-goes into a category labeled
"o'ffice." This money covers
salaries, telephone charges, sta-
tionery, equipment, postage and
6,400 dollars, or 20 percent of
the budget, is set aside for fall
and winter MSA elections.
Money is set aside for several
internal committees, such as
the Student Organizations Board
and Central Student Judiciary,
(CSJ); and for audits and ad-
channeled into "special proj-
ects" such as the MSA News-
letter and Child Care Action
Center. Funds are also used to
finance affiliation with Michi-
gan's S.A.L.T. (Students Asso-
ciated for Lower Tuition).
The remainder of the $33,700
budget, over $8,100, is available
as a surplus. MSA uses it for
"external" allocations - money
doled out to student groups qua-
lified to receive it.
The final decision on how to
distribute the MSA budget is

left to elected representatives
on the student assembly.
There are other, more direct
benefits which students may de-
rive from contributing to the
MSA purse.
Each semester, students are
offered MSA sponsored Health
Insurance. The Assembly also
arranges for voter registration,
runs personnel selection com-
mittees which place students in
positions within the University,
and funds the Student Organiza-
tions Office - responsible for
scheduling events at University
MSA HAS its own legal staff
which not only offers personal
counsel, but works on campus
discrimination cases as well.
Last year, MSA's Housing Re-
form Project produced and cir-
culated the booklet, "How to
Evict Your Landlord".
And apart from all this, MSA
reoresentatives serve as offi-
cial liaisons between students
and administration,
Desoite the availability of the
benefits, few students take ad-
vantage of them. According to
the MSA office, about 700 stu-
dents-20 percent of the student
body-utilized the Health Insur-
ance program in the 1975-76 aca-
demic year.
Still. when it came time to
pay for MSA last semester, four
out of five students shelled out
their 75 cents.

NEW DELHI, India (P)-
Prime Minister Indira Gandhi
picked a new Supreme Court
chief justice yesterday and set
off a furor by passing over the
ranking judge, who had deliv-
ered the lone dissent against her
government in a landmark civil
liberties case.
Justice Hans Raj Khanna,
whom Gandhi bypassed, re-
signed from the 13-member Su-
preme Court bench in protest
as opposition politicians alleged
he had been victimized for his
frequent independent judgments.

Supreme Court Bar Association,
which had adopted a resolution
urging the prime minister to
follow seniority and name Khan-
na, said its officers would boy-
cott the swearing in -today of
Mirza Hameedullah Beg, the
second ranking judge, as chief
Supreme Court lawers said
Beg had almost consistently
voted in the government's favor
in key cases.
Reacting to the uproar caused
by the appointment, Law Min-

ister H. R. Gokhale issued a
statement maintaining t h a t
Khanna was passed over be-
cause he was only five months
and five days from the manda-
tory retirement age of 65 while
Beg has 13 months to go.
PRESIDENT Fakhruddin Ali
Ahmed, acting on the advice of
the prime minister, formally ap-
pointed Beg on the eve of the
retirement of the outgoing chief
juitice, Ajit Nath Ray.
Gandhi had named Ray in a
similar manner in 1973, bypass-
ing three Supreme Court judges
who were senior to him. They
all resigned in protest and the
bar association boycotted the
Supreme Court for a day.
Khanna dissented last April
in a 4-1 Supreme Court ruling
that upheld the government's
contention that political prison-
ers had no right to challenge
their detention, even through a
habeas corpus petition, while
key sections of the constitution
remained suspended under the
p r i m e nminister's emergency
Beg sided with the majority
on the special five-man bench.
