A rent strike against Trony Associates began
yesterday with 20 housing units paying their
December rent into escrow accounts set up by
the Ann Arbror Tenants Union. AATU has receiv-
ed pledges from almost half of the company's 120
units to withhold rent. Trony's new owner, Dewey
Black, would not say how many tenants had paid
their rent yesterday. Most landlords, including
Black, allow a five day grace period past the
official rent due date.

Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus and this
year he's making house calls. On Christmas
morning, William Driggers will stick a pillow un-
der the belt of his red costume and drive to the
home of children he's never met just to wake

Get that goat!
A small white goat has taken up residence at
the new town hall in Cary, North Carolina. The
goat started grazing on the town hall lawn last
week, remained there during the weekend and
eluded officials who tried to capture him. "I can't
run the goat down," town manager Charles Wil-
liams said. "He jumps up the walls. He can be on
the ledge outside the building in one easy spring."
Williams said there's plenty of grass for the goat
to eat. "He's a conversation piece," town clerk
Annie Jones said. "We haven't done anything ex-
cept admire him."
A champion pipe smoker loves smoking his pipe
so much he won't take it ?out of his mouth long
enough to get kissed, his wife complains. North
Carolinian Dan Stephens, 54, puffed his way to
first place last weekend in a pipe smoking con-
test. He kept a pipeful of smoking tobacco burn-
ing for a record hour and 36 minutes. Stephens,
who's been smoking a pipe for 20 years, suggests
smokers use a good, clean pipe with obstruction
in the bowl or stem. Stephens puffed away at an-
other pipeful of tobacco after winning the cham-
pionship, and despite his failure to acknowledge
it - his wife, Mary, planted a victory kiss on him.

Israel agreed yesterday to
keep the United Nations buffer
force on the Golan Heights. But
the government angrily de-
nounced the U.N. Security Coun-
cil for "surrender to Syrian ex-
tortion" and declared it will
take no part in the council's
Mideast debate next month be-
cause the Palestine Liberation
Organization will be invited.
Israeli officials privately ex-
pressed concern that the United
States had failed to veto the
council's resolution Sunday or
at least abstain from the vote.
They said the government found
only "partly satisfactory" an
explanation cabled by Secretary
of State Henry Kissinger.
IN AN eleventh hour compro-
mise Sunday, Syria accepted a
six-month extension of the Unit-
ed Nations buffer force on the
Golan Heights. In return, the
council agreed to Syrian de-
mands that the PLO be includ-
ed in a debate on the Mideast
next Jan. 12.

would continue both to reduce
the dangers and to explore new
opportunities for peace.

SLASH MAY TOTAL $1.6 MILLION:
By BILL TURQUE
Governor William Milliken and legislative leaders are now
putting the finishing touches to recommendations which, if ap-
proved, will pare at least $1.6 million - about 1.5 per cent - from
the University's current operating budget.
Milliken will submit the recommendations, in the form of an
executive order slashing $125 million from the statewide budget, to
appropriations committees in both the State House and Senate
late this week or early next week. Last month, those committees
rejected the Governor's first executive order, calling for $150 mil-
lion in statewide budget reductions.
DR. GERALD MILLER, director of the Bureau of Manage-
ment and Budget said last night that "it would be fair to say
that (the University's recommended cut) will be about $1.6 mil-
lion, maybe a couple of hundred thousand more."
Miller added that he has been in close consultation with leg-
islative leaders in formulating the executive order so that its
passage through the committees will "hopefully" be relatively
An aide to Governor Milliken, who asked not to be identified,
said, however, the magnitude of the University's cut was
"fluid." Asked how high the recommended cut might go,
aide said "it could double," although he hastened to all that
was an unlikely upper limit.
MILLER SCOFFED at this estimate, saying "Somebody was
playing games with you."
Haggling between Milliken and legislators over the level of
reduction for higher education funding stretches back to last
summer, when, the aide said, lawmakers approved a budget
package which the Governor thought underfunded the Univer-
sity, Michigan State, and Wayne State University.
The aid said members of the appropriations.committees gave
preferential treatment to schools within their own districts, such
as Michigan Technological University and Grand Valley Com-
The aide said that although Milliken would like to keep the
cuts for the larger state schools as small as possible, legislators
may yet increase them to protect smaller institutions.

and the other to Michigan

minder of home yesterday,

FORD is, of course, a product
of the University where he play-
ed football in the 1930s.

LSI4 faculty hiring freeze
to have effect in classrooms

Fewer course offerings, larg-

workloads in the literary col-

year as the result of the

such measures "are ways of
constructively coping with the
problem" of dealing with the
THE campus - wide hiring
freeze was implemented about
a month ago and will continue
through next year.
This week state appropria-
tions for the current fiscal year
are expected to be cut by about
1.2 to 1.5 per cent. State legis-
lators pared 1 per cent off the
University's $99.8 million bud-
get in August.
Each unit of the University
absorbs varying amounts of

would not disclose the exact
amount suffered by LSA. The

Next year ,however, LSA ex-
pects about four per cent of its
budget to be lopped off as the
University's budget problems
grow worse, according to Frye.
University President Robben
Fleming reiterated at the fac-
ulty meeting that the Univer-
sity "will receive the same
number of dollars" (in state ap-
propriations) in 1976-1977 that
we have for this year." Stripped
by inflation, this amount of
money will actually mean a de-
crease in funds.
FLEMING noted the major
methods for dealing with the
cuts are "to lop off programs
or reduce certain numbers of
personnel" or to raise tuition.
Frye discussed Fleming's
first alternative by suggesting
several "ways of economizing"
in the freeze on hiring, point-
ing out that the cuts next year
"will be made principally in
academic positions" which con-
stitute 82 per cent of the LSA
