$5 million Rot orders i
Soff request
o By JIM O'B IEN P 7

' The State Senate yesterday
approved a $341.5 million high-
er education bil including a
drastically reduced appropria-
tion for the, University.
The measure, an amended
form of Gov. William Milliken's
original budget proposal, calls
for a $5.6 million funding in-
crease for the University next
Milliken's plan had originally
provided $10.2 million in new
funds for the University, still
far short of the $11 million in-
crease the University had re-
quested from the state.
The present form of the bill
requires cuts in the area of sal-
ary increases and added finan-
cial aid to students, both cruc-
ially necessary next year, ac-
cording to Allan Smith, vice
president for academic affairs.
The University had asked for
$2.7 million over last year's al-
lotment to financial help for
students, and faculty salary in-
creases averaging 11 per cent.
Milliken revised the figures
downward to $926 thousand for
student aid and 6.5 per cent as
an average pay raise.
The amended version of the
bill passed by the House cut
them still further to $152 thous-
and in student aid, and raises
averaging 4.8 per cent.
If the budget is not revised,
money for these projects will
have to be taken from some
other area of the .University,
according to Smith.
The average increase in fund-
ing for state colleges was 11
per cent over last year with the
University listed as receiving a

"We hopeto get some consid-

the bill will be discussed next
week before any final action is
taken on it, Fauri said.

ceiving a 48.8 per cent raise
in their budget. The figure rep-

pared to the static enrollment
level here, Fauri pointed out.
Other features contained in
the measure include an "ac-
countability" clause, requiring
schools to keep track of facul-
ty work loads, and the num-
ber of students taught, in an
attempt to more accurately as-
sess the financial needs of the
various colleges.
Funding for new law schools,
to be started at Michigan State
University, Western Michigan
University, and Grand Valley
State College was also pro-
vided in the bill.

DETROIT (-Desegregation of schools in Detroit and
53 suburbs was ordered yesterday by U.S. District Judge
Stephen Roth, in a decision involving a 300-square-mile
area with 750,000 school children.
It was only the second time that a federal judge has
ordered desegregation on an areawide basis. An earlier
decision, consolidating three school districts in theRich-
mond, Va., area, has been overturned by the 4th U.S.
r{ Circuit Court of Apppeals.
The head of the board of education in Detroit, where
} the school system is 60 per cent black, said Roth's decision
would be appealed.
Roth did not order any particular desegregation plan

yesterday. Instead, he out-
lined the desegregation area
and created a panel of nine
education experts to draft a
plan within 45 days.
The panel is ordered to draw
an interim plan involving some
grades for implementation this
September, with a complete plan
for all grades to take effect in
the' fall of 1973.
Roth issued several specific
guidelines for the panel:
-Within each "cluster" of
schools and districts, the racial
makeup of each school and class
-' is to reflect the racial balance
of the cluster;
-The faculty of each school
should be at least 10 per cent
black, with biracial administra-
tive teams preferred; and
-Busing of children should be
kept to the minimum consistent
with complete desegregation.
Roth's order results from
nearly two years of hearings and
trials which began when the
NAACP filed suit charging De-
troit schools were segregated.
The case eventually was ex-
panded to include the state and
the State Board of Education as
Roth ruled last fall that De-
-Associated press troit schools were segregated as
the result of official government
actions, and ordered metropoli-
tan busing plans to be drawn up.
In March, he rejected all De-
troit-only integregation plans,
saying full desegregation of the
Detroit public schools could only
3e . come through the inclusion of
suburban students.
Roth's decision, while not un-
expected, is expected to intensify
the storm of anti-busing protest
which has swept the Detroit
area since the judge first pro-
posed areawide desegregation

VP post
By The Associated Press
Sen. Edward Kennedy ( -
Mass.) said yesterday that he
would consider running for vice
president on a ticket headed by
Sen. George McGovern (D.-S.D.),
if that was the only way to beat
President Nixon in November.
Kennedy said later, however,
that he would not take the job.
"I can't foresee any circum-
stances under which I might ac-
cept," he said. In an interview
with the Boston Globe, Kennedy
had said that he might consider
