Funding system
to hurt education?

By MAUREEN NOLAN
Formula funding - a method
for appropriating funds for
state institutions of higher
learning - could be detrimental
to maintaining the University's
present level of education, ac-
cording to Richard Kennedy,
University vice president f o r
state relations.
Speaking at Monday's month-
ly Senate Assembly meeting,
Kennedy asserted that the me-
thod "doesn't give enough con-
sideration to the uniqueness of
our institution."
THE MODEL under discus-
sion at the meeting - and the
model proposed recently by the
state's Senate Appropriations!
Committee - consists of three
parts:
-Part A determines on a
systematic, mathematical basis'
how much money an institution
should get, depending upon stu-
dent credit hours, class size, fa-
culty load and salaries, and
support personnel and services.
This is where the University'
would, in Kennedy's words,
"lose out," because of being
lumped in with other state insti-
tutions.
PARTS B and C of the model

he says.
Kennedy also said, "I think
the most positive thing that has
occurred is recognition that the
state has underfunded higher;
education in the state."
HE FEELS that the formula
funding model has not been an-
alyzed thoroughly enough forta
final decision to be made on its
value.
I Associate Professor Frank
Whitehouse spoke to the As-
sembly about the possibility of
a State Board of Higher Edu-
cation, stemming from the need
-owith a stringent budget -
for effective planning.
He stressed that planning at a
federal and state level has
"profound implications for fa- -
culty," adding that the faculty
is not as aware as it should be
of the importance of planning.

HEALING
Restoring health, wholeness, harmony, justice
In our culture, healing of mind, body, spirit and community are most
often considered separately, for instance, through psychology, medi-
cine, religion, and politics. Are there principles, processes, images,
forms on which seemingly diverse kinds of healing are based?
Canterbury House invites you to a series of discussions this term on
"The Connections Among Physical, Psychological, Spiritual and Politi-
cal Healing."

ALVIN NEFF, the magazine man at Nickles Arcade, has been on the job for 45 years
Arcade magazine salesman:
A part of Ann Arbor tradition

By LANI JORDAN
Each weekday morning at ten1
o'clock his neighbor brings him
to the Nickels Arcade on State
St. He unlocks the blue wooden1
chest that holds his magazines
and organizes them neatly in
the rack.
AlvinNeff has been selling
magazines in the Arcade for
45 years. The stand, started byt
his brother in 1931, has becomex
an institution in Ann' Arbor. r
"I'VE ONLY MISSED a cou-t
ple weeks in all these years,"!
Neff said proudly.1
Born and raised in Ann Arbor,'
61-year-old Neff began helpingt
his brother when the standi
opened and took over runningt
t in 1942. When asked why he:
has stayed here all these yearsI
he replied, "I had polio whent
I was 14. This is all I can do."j

Although he has one gnarled
hand and a slight limp, Neff
manages quite well. He takes
his work very seriously, remain-
ing at the stand even during
his lunch.
BEING OUTSIDE all day
doesn't seem to bother him at
all. "It's good for me," he said.
"Keeps me healthy." The only
thing which annoys him is "peo- I
ple coming and throwing the
magazines around, messing
things up."
According to Neff, students
haven't changed much over the
last forty-five years. "They used
to dress up (for class). Now'
it's all jeans and overalls At-
titudes are still the same."
"Some of the people who were
here a long time ago come
back to see me," he said. "They
say 'hello' and shake my hand."1

A STATE board of Higher

planning and coordination of

leges, ideally being able to do
a better job of it than the pre-I

Meanwhile, the assembly un-
