Although the Legislature has not yet finalized the
University's appropriation for the current fiscal year, Uni-

about next year's general fund allocation from the state.

that appropriation requests from the colleges for fiscal

collective barganing

The Senate Assembly com-
inittee studying the possibilities
of collective bargaining or alter-
native methods for the faculty
to "more decisively affect Uni-
versity of Michigan financial
and organizational policies" has
urged University faculty mem-
bers to be cautious about tak-

ing active steps towards insti-
tuting faculty collective b a r -
gaining at the present time.
In a communication recently
sent to the faculty, the Com-
mittee on the Rights and Re-
sponsibilities of Faculty M e m-
bers, 1971, stated that "well-

disqualified Vice President
Nguyen Cao Ky as a candidate
in the presidential elections,
narrowing the field to President
Nguyen Van Thieu and tetired
Gen. Duong Van "Big" Minh.
The court ruled Ky failed to
pualify because 39 of his 102
endorsements duplicated those
already given to Thieu, and thus
were invalid. Ky needed 100 to
gain a place on the ballot for
the Oct. 3 election.
Shortly after being notified of
the court's ruling, Ky said he
had made -no decision as to
what action he would take next.
Under the election law Ky
can appeal the court's decision
within the next eight days.
Such an appeal would be ruled

New sales technique
This coffee advertisement which has appeared in Sweden is a
phony, say owners of the Gevalia coffee company for which it ap-
peared. The picture, however, is not-with one small exception.
The hand is that of a swedish blosde who originally modelled for
the ad. A poster artist says he copied an official Nixon portrait
from the U.S. Embassy and coupled it with part of a Gevalia
coffee ad.
