AlWillie or not?
The question still lurks in the backs of our
minds - was it really Willie or not? Early yes-
terday afternoon, The Daily received a phone call
from a person, sounding slightly inebriated, who
claimed to be Willie Horton, the Detroit Tiger
outfielder. The husky-voiced, word-slurring caller
told us that he had just been traded away to
the Texas Rangers. Just moments before, the wire
services carried a story which said that Horton
had indeed been traded, pending his approval of
the deal. The story also said Horton was in Toronto
with the team and was unavailable for comment.
The Willie on the horn, however, insisted that he
was "The Willie," and said that, although the
trade was still unofficial, "It's not up to me wheth-
er the trade goes through." If it was "The Willie,"
he took the transfer news fairly calmly, saying:
"I was brought up in Detroit. I love Detroit, but,
you know, baseball is baseball. You can't always
have what you want in life. What can you do?"
-HEW cites site
Ann Arbor may be chosen as the site of a
new Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA)
research center. City administrator Sylvester Mur-
ray told City Council Monday night that the De-
partment of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW)
has named Ann Arbor as one of five possible sites.
An OSHA center would provide 800 research jobs
in the area. Other sites under consideration are
Chicago, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and Washington,
D.C. These five cities were choser from an original
group of 12. Murray said that Ann Arbor is be-
ing considered because the University is offering the
land for the site, at Baxter and Plymouth Roads,
for free. Other considerations are the large num-
ber of scientists and researchers in the city and
proximity to OSHA clients, such as major indus-
try. The final decision will be announced at the
end of this month.

Probing the minority service maze

University officials across the campus agree
with what disillusioned minority students have
been saying for years-minority services on cam-
pus are: fragmented, confusing, and lacking in
direction for the future.
They agree, likewise, that nobody is doing any-
thing about it.
THE MINORITY attrition rate is soaring.
Between the winter and fall terms of 1975, 13 per
cent of all black students and 14 per cent of non-
black minority students dropped out of the Uni-
versity, compared to only a nine per cent drop-
out rate for white students.
Though administrators point 'to a variety of
causes for the high minority attrition, all agree
that it is due, in part, to the frustrating com-
plexity of minority services. A minority student

seeking special assistance might confront, among
others, the following offices and officials:
-Before the student even arrives, he of she
may be recruited by any number of staffers
from the Office of Admissions, who are under the
authority of Director Clifford Sjogren.
-After arriving, he or she would be encouraged

directed by Raymond Snowden, who answers to
LSA Dean Billy Frye, who answers to Vice Presi-
dent for Academic Affairs Frank Rhodes.
-For financial aid, the student would wait with
other students in an office in the Student Activi-
ties Building (SAB). Many minority students re-

University of Michigan," the report continued,
"the resultant rivalry and overlap of functions
seeking help, the choice between seemingly sim-
ilar agencies may be" confusing and frustrating."
William Cash, assistant to University President
Robben Fleming, points out the difficulty of con-
solidation: "All offices have their own adminis-
trative set-up. It gets impossible to coordinate
when everybody is responsible to other admin-
THE VARIOUS services have quite dissimilar
functions. The Opportunity Program, under
George Goodman, often is shouldered with re-
sponsibility for consolidation of services, but Is
really chiefly responsible only for referring stu-
dents to other services-the Office of Admissions,
Financial Aid, the Reading and Learning Skills
Center, CULS, Career Planning and Placement,
the Housing Office, and individual contacts in

to take advantage of Opportunity Program coun-
seling, which is under the authority of Director
George Goodman, who answers to Vice President
for Student Services Henry Johnson.
-He or she also would be encouraged, if en-
rolled in LSA, to participate in the Coalition for
the Use of Learning Skills, (CULS), housed in

ceive monetary assistance from the University.

Task Force on Student Counseling" evaluated
minority services and concluded that the many
organizations "provide a variety of complemen-
tary and indeed overlapping services.

Fall tuition may increase 8-10%

F inal
University President Robben
Fleming said yesterday that stu-
dents can expect a tuition in-
crease of eight to ten per cent
for the coming school year.
Although the Regents are not
expected to approve exact fig-
ures for a rate hike until June,
University Vicf. President for
Academic Affairs Frank Rhodes
will present them with tentative
figures-which will probably be
within one per cent of the final
hike-at their monthly meeting
University officials say the
figure of eight to ten per cent
is not final, but they are eager
for the Regents to approve the
tentative rates so that students
may prepare Fall term budgets.
The Regents are expected .o
do so.
The tuition h.he comes in the
wake of a recently approved $4
per cent increase in room and
board fees for next year. This
year's tuition was a nine per
cent jump from 1975-76.
If an eight per cent increase
is approved tentatively on Fri-
day, tuition for in-state fresh-
persons and sophomores will
rise to $1,000 per year, while
out-of-state students will pay
$3,257 per year.
THE EXACT percentage of
increase will be determined af-
ter state legislators in Lansing
approve a final budget for the
University late this. month.
Two weeks ago, F l e m i n g
made a plea to state legislators
for a $20 million increase in
funds. He was rewarded with
a $10.4 million recommendation
by a state Senate subcommittee.
As a result, the University must
find an extra $10 million in
other sources, such as tuition
hikes and budget cuts in vari-
ous curricula, according to
Frank Rhodes:
Most - of the $10.4 million in
new appropriations is already
earmarked and so will not be
available for general use. For
example, "$4 million alone will
be consumed by skyrocketing

This place is a circus
The warm weather attracted all kinds to the Diag yesterday, including the members of the Royal
Lichtensteiner Circus. At left, Kevin Duggin pleases the crowd with his juggling from his perch
atop Nick Webber. Looking on is Mitch Kincannon, who finds himself a little more tied up later
on (above). Doesn't everybody always say that the University is a circus? It just took these
guys to prove it.a



Leaders try to

refuel arms talks

WASHINGTON OP) - President Carter conferred
yesterday with Soviet Ambassador Apatoly Dobrynin
in an effort to resume discussions on a treaty limiting
nuclear weapons.
The 40-minute session at the White House was held
against a backdrop of a dispute over apparent Russian
violations of new American fishing regulations. But
U. S. officials said this was only "touched on" and that
the concentration was on arms.
"GOOD MEETING", Dobrynin told reporters after
the session.
On the U. S. side, a brief statement issued by White
House press aides said that there had been "a con-
structive and useful discussion of U.S.-Soviet relations,
'U' may allot mo
student room spa

which included strategic-arms limitation,"
Attending the session, Carter's first with Dobrynin
since the breakdown in weapons negotiations, were
Secretary of State Cyrus Vance, national-security ad-
viser Zbigniew Brzezinski, and Robert Hunter of the
National Security Council staff. Hunter took notes.
EMPHASIZING the meeting's importance, White
House spokesman Rex Granum said the two sides
"were anxious to meet" in order to update U.S.-Soviet
Dobrynin's call was arranged before the Coast
Guard seized Soviet fishing vessels off the Massachu-
setts coast over the weekend where they were in ap-
parent violation of the 200-mile U. S. zone established

last month.
Yesterday, the Antanas Snechkus, a transport ship
carrying 111 metric tons of fish, arrived in Boston Har-
bor under armed escort.
The 503-foot Antanas Snechkus was forced off the
ocean when Coast Guard inspectors found it carried
frozen blocks of cod and perch, two species prohibited
by the new 200-mile fishing limit, plus more than its
limit of river herring.
While there was no formal agenda for the Carter-
Dobrynin meeting, a possible topic for discussion was
sending Paul Warnke, the U. S. arms control chief,
to Geneva this month to renew weapons discussions
before Vance meets with Soviet Foreign Minister An-
drei Gromyko in May.

Michigan Student Assembly
(MSA) President Scott Kellman
announced yesterday that Uni-
versity officials have tentative-
ly agreed to allot up to 10,000
additional square feet of room
space next year for student ac-

further on the extra space, in-
cluding its location.
Johnson could not be reached
last night for comment.
During the meeting, MSA
members approved a revised
insurance plan to accommo-
date higher health costs and

crimination code).

A News Analysis
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa VP) - From the deserts
of western Sahara to the eastern Horn and the central copper
belt, the African continent is increasingly splintering into
squabbling and often warring camps of radical Marxist-oriented
- states and nations ruled by anti-Communists.
The trend is currently most apparent in Zaire. President
Mobutu Sese Seko claims the exiled rebels who invaded his
copper-rich Shaba province from Marxist Angola are led by
Cubans and armed by Soviets.

for Africa
China has condemned the invasion of Shaba as a further
example of Soviet "expansionism" in Africa, and Mobutu has
also rallied support from some anti-Soviet African states, in-
cluding Egypt and Sudan.
SUDAN, WHICH has a 500-mile border with Zaire and a
mutual defense pact with Egypt, says the invasion has a "direct
effect" on its security and has pledged "whatever help Zaire
needs." Egypt has reportedly sent a military team to help the
Zaire army.
Both Cuba and the Soviet Union have denied any role in the
