Out-state tuition blues,
Your budge may be courting disaster if you're an
out-of-state student who's been counting on a last-
minute loosening of the residency requirements for
in-state tuition. The Michigan Supreme Court has
upheld a State Court of Appeals decision that -the
University Board of Regents have the right to
decide who qualifies as a resident for tuition pur-
poses and who doesn't. The appeal was brought
by local attorney Arthur Carpenter, who had filed
the original class action suit on behalf of students
denied resident status. Carpenter said yesterday
the effort to change the residency rules is "fin-

inent disciples. A young man and woman who say
they are followers of "The Two," have turned up
in Minneapolis to preach the new life. The couple
said "The Two" came here from the "next king-
dom, incarnate as humans, awakened, to hear the
truth, and will soon demonstrate the same proof
of overcoming death that Jesus did. You don't
have to die to make this trip, but the body has to
be changed . . . go through a metamorphosis."
The great escape
Residents of Beirut, Lebanon, have apparently
turned to sex and downers as a relief from the
day-to-day toll of violence and death in that city.
Beirut druggists, at least those who are still open,
agree: the hottest-selling items are contraceptives
and ranquilizers. "In a way, it's the same thing,"
said a salesman from the St. Charles Pharmacy.
"Keeps people's minds off what's happening."
The pharmacist said dozens of customers who had
nevercome in before were asking for tranquilizers.
"First they try two milligrams. Then they are
back asking if it comes in 10 milligram tablets,"
he said. It is understandable. The rocket blasts
keep them awake at night and scare them all day
when they have to stay cooped up in the house.
The pill has always been a big seller, he said
of the contraceptives, but "now it is bigger than

Milliken asks new funding cut
By BILL TURQUE
University administrators yesterday ordered an immediate
freeze on all hiring shortly after Governor Milliken proposed
a $1.6 million cut in state funding for this fiscal year.
"The freeze applies to all openings, in all job groups, ex-
cept for those vacancies that will cause irreparable damage
to our operation," said Vice President for Academic Affairs
Frank Rhodes, in a statement issued yesterday.
RHODES INDICATED THAT

comment, but Rhodes was clearly

This is the second such job freeze within the last year.
Reductions in state funding forced a similar freeze last Feb-
ruary 25. It expired on June 30.
THE PROPOSED REDUCTION, which comes to about 1.5
per cent of the University's $99.8 million state approporation,
is part of a long-awaited executive order that would pare $150
million from a deficit-riddled
The plan now goes to appro-
priations committees in both
houses, where legislators are
expected to flatly reject it, and
send the proposal back to the
Governor for redrafting.
Late last August, lawmakers
lopped a last-minute 1.5 per
cent from the University's state
appropriation, necessitating se-
lective cuts in programs and
services camous-wide, with the
excen~tion of funding for student
financial aid and utilities.
ETIWARD DOUGHE'RTY, an
assistant to Rhodes, said the
freeze wonld be reviewed on

determination can be made of

Ford promises veto
for any New York
Ford announced yesterday that
he will veto any bail-out legis-
lation aimed at keeping New
York City solvent, but he asked
Congress to help ensure police
and fire protection if the city
defaults on its debts.
However, House Democratic
leaders said later they are going
ahead with legislation to aid
the nation's largest city,, irclud-
ing federal guarantees for the
city's debts, which Ford spe-

antee authority, the city of New

chairman of the House Banking
Committee, announced the de-
cision to proceed with legisla-

IT WAS "ALICE Doesn't Day" to women yesterday and "Alice Can't" to the male workers at
Detroit's Fischer building. Among the 200 demonstrators who observed the NOW organized strike
is Reva Guich, 75 (above center), who said feminism was nothing new to her.

Greer in Detroit
By ELAINE FLETCHER
Noted feminist Germaine Greer alerted Detroit
women yesterday to the cultural gap between
them and their Third World sisters in an appear-
ance that highlighted downtown observances of
"Alice Doesn't Day."
Greer apologized to the 1000 women assembled
at Fisher Theatre for "doing" on the national
strike date called by the National Organization of
Women (NOW). "But no woman poured my cof-
fee, or worked for me this morning-a very nice
man did it all," she said.
ABOUT 200 women picketed outside the theatre
with signs supporting "Alice Doesn't Day."

MOSLEMS A DVANCE:
Gty women gather
By MAUREEN NOLAN
A group of 150 Ann Arbor women celebrated
"Alice Doesn't" Day with a party instead of the
demonstration called for by the National Organi-
zation of Women (NOW).
Anne Locksley, a member of the group which
calls themselves the Organizing Committee, said,
"We felt that most women were in a position
that made it impossible for them to strike.
"I TALKED to a lot of women whose husbands
said they'd beat them if they didn't wash the
dishes," Locksley said.
Locksley criticized NOW as "too elitist" but
said she did not directly oppose the group.
