exam time rolls around, Arts page features a

every commercial theatre in Ann Arbor. The con-

Avid fan
A lot of people like football (especially when it
comes to Michigan vs. Ohio State) but some people
are ridiculous. People like Rasin Tek, for example.

ring side (or field side) seat for the big event.
He's coming in from Sydney, Australia, where he
teaches at the University of South Wales. He's
on leave from the University and has been in
Australia since last July, and will probably be
there for another year. Except for the big game,
of course.

age of 82. He had been

that the old general's brain

and did not immediately an-

constitution to run the nation
until Prince Juan Carlos de Bor-

been assembled. The prince be-

it became evident Franco would
not recover.
Juan Carlos' installation -
which " must come within eight
days of Franco's death - is
expected to generate a show of
power by the right-wingers who
ran the country under the gen-
eralissimo and who fear the
new king may choose a more
moderate course.
In Washington, the Ford ad-
ministration was expected to
watch closely political develop-


ments and power alignment in
Spain following Franco's death.
THERE WAS no immediate
comment from the White House
on the news of the general's
death. A spokesperson said
Ford would probably issue a
statement later today.
The semiofficial Cifra news
agency said Franco died at 4:40

WASHINGTON - President
Ford said yesterday he will
wait until after the New York
State Legislature acts on rais-
ing taxes before deciding whe-
ther to support any bill to keep
New York City from going bank-
"The bail-out bill now before
the House of Representatives is
irrelevant because it does not
address the current situation
and I would veto it," Ford said
in a statement. But he pro-
mised to look at the situation
again next week after the legis-
lature acts.
FORD ASKED Congress "in
the meantime" to pass a bill to
facilitate an "orderly" bank-
ruptcy should New York City
} Chairman Henry Reuss of the
House Banking Committee, re-
acting to what he called "the
bombshell from the White
House," cancelled floor action
on a bill that would have pro-
vided loan guarantees of $3 bil-
lion over seven years to$New
York City.
New York Gov. Hugh Carey,
pointing to Ford's promise to
review the situation if the state
takes further steps, promptly
declared that "we're going to
take him up on it."
HE CONVENED a meeting of
the state's legislative leaders in
to Albany. to press for prompt ac-
tion on an increasein city tax-
es. A Ford administration
ra source said the President's key
he demand was that the state act
on a $200-million tax increase

for the city.
The likely choice was a one-
cent increase in the city sales
tax, raising it to a combined
state-city levy of nine cents on
the dollar. Carey, returning to
Albany from Washington, said,
"I'd like action in an hour if
I could get it," and promised
legislation by the end of the

through federal help may be
running out, however. New York
City could default on its debts

a Thanksgiving recess this week
without any aid legislation.
Carey said, however, that he
was "confident" the state would
find a source for some $150
million in borrowing needed to
keep the city afloat through
Dec. 11.

source said, however, that if
the state legislature acts on the

) ack enrollment
declines in '752 76
The University's black enrollment declined to 6.93 per cent of
all students this term, decreasing for the second straight year
and remaining short of the ten per cent goal agreed to by admin-
istration officials during the 1970 Black Action Movement (BAM)
Despite the decline, the overall minority enrollment on campus
rose to 9.11 per cent over last fall's 9.63 per cent figure, accord-
ing to a report released this week by Richard English, associate
vice president for academic affairs.
ACCORDING TO federal guidelines, "minority" includes any
U.S. citizen who is Spanish-surnamed, Oriental, Native American
or black.
Pat Wilson, assistant director of undergraduate admissions,
claimed the stalemate ip the University's effort to reach the ten
per cent BAM goal, was due to a lack of black students in the
state who meet the admission standards plus competition from
other universities and black colleges.
However, both Bazel Allen, a member of the Graduate Em-
ployes Organization (GEO) and Black Advocate Richard Garland
attributed the decline in black enrollment largely to what they
termed the University's failure to create an atmosphere attractive
to black students. They pointed out a lack of black cultural activi-
ties and facilities.
"THE BICENTENNIAL lectures are by white males," Allen
said. "This University is oriented to a certain class of people and

Regents to vote on CSSG plan

The University Board of Re-
gents tomorrow will consider a
recommendation of the Commis-
sion to Study Student Govern-
ance (CSSG) that would create
a non-voting student seat on the
Board. Comments from admin-
istrators and Regents indicate
that the proposal will probably
not pass.
CSSG was created by a Re-
gental resolution in October,
1973, to examine student govern-
ment at the University, and to
make recommendations on how
it could be overhauled.
ONE OF these proposals calls

for a "student executive officer"
to participate in Board meet-
ings without a vote, similar to
the six University vice-presi-
dents and two chancellors who
do so now.
The most frequently-cited ar-
gument against the non-voting
student seat is that, if granted,
other constituencies on campus,
such as the faculty, will want
similar representation.
University President Robben
Fleming contends that the pro-
posal is unworkable: "As a
practical matter," he said, "I
don't see how we can do it. I
don't see how we can grant this

request from the students, and
not from the other groups on
campus." Beyond the faculty,
Fleming mentioned s t u d e n t s
from the Dearborn and Flint
campuses, non-academic staff,
and alumni as groups he thought
could make claims for a seat.
dent Services Henry Johnson,
who oversaw much of CSSG's
work, supports the recommenda-
tion, but concedes that "me-
chanics" could be a problem.
He does not, however, think pos-
sible future claims for repre-
sentation by other groups should
impede the Regents from ap-

proving the recommendation.
"Students pose a viable con-
stituency on this campus, obvi-
ously the largest," Johnson said.
"Students feel that they are con-
sumers and should have the op-
portunity to participate in dialog
relevant to decisions that will
affect them. They don't want to
run the University, they just
want to give a consumers per-
spective on the discussion."
"If we could solve the problem
of the various constituencies,
then I think we ought to ser-
iously consider it," said Regent
Robert Nederlander (D-Birming-
ham). "I wish we could work it
out so that all groups had an
opportunity. T h e r e' s nothing
secret about the Board meet-
Flint)Gsaid he did not think stu-
dents as a group held a unique
claim to a seat on the Board
and argued that "the Regents
were elected to represent the
people, and students are part of
the people." Asked if he thought
the symbolic value of a student
seat was a significant considera-
tion. he renlied "it's value is
