Dispute hits
Angered by what they consider excessive
budget cuts and incidents of censorship, mem-
bers of the news and editorial staff of Mich-
igan State University's (MSU) student news-
paper, filed a list of grievances with their
board of directors on Friday.
The target of'the complaints is State News
general manager Gerald Coy, 57, who has
presided over the paper's finances since 1973.
According to News editors, the grievance
package is the culmination of more than a
year of turmoil between Coy and the editorial
THE EDITORS charge Coy with attempting
to exert influence over the paper's news con-
tent, which according to the News' by-laws,
is to be exclusively determined by the studlent
News Managing Editor Steve Orr said the
actual cases of censorship were not particu-
larly numerous, but that Coy has "expressed
the belief that he could do it at anytime."
John Tingwall, who was appointed as editor-
in-chief of the News on May 1, said Coy's
budget cuts reflect a marked preference for

MSU paper
the paper's advertising department.
"WE THINK he has slighted us in favor of
advertising," said Tingwall. "We don't deny
that cuts are necessary, but in some depart-
ments there have been no cuts at all."
Tingwall contends the cuts will make ser-
ious inroads into the quality of the News'
coverage. He indicated the cut would mean
a reduction in reportorial staff from 55 to 45,
and probable cutbacks in wire and wirephoto
Coy said last night he considers the cuts
fair, and added that all of the paper's depart-
ments have taken cuts proportional to their
operational expenses.
"I ASKED the news department to take a
$475 cut in their weekly budget, and adver-
tising to take a $350 cut," said Coy. "The dif-
ference in the cuts is about proportionate to
their total budget."
Many of the grievances brought to the
board's attention date back through the past
school year, when Susan Ager was State News

sets hiring
A new program designed to
encourage more summer hiring
of University students is now
being administered by the Tem-
porary Employment Office.
This "fifty-fifty program," ac-
cording to Temporary Employ-
nent head Aaron Sellers, is
unique in that it provides half
tee wages for newly-hired stu-
tent empolyes, leaving the em-
poying deportment to pay the
stherhalf. Sellers estimated
tfat approximately 125 new jobs

ful in its aim - to create new
positions by encouraging the
departments to hire more peo-
Only students currently en-
rolled in the University are

ers stressed, and preference is

This year's funds, he said,
were nearly exhausted already
in placing students in a wide
variety of positions, from lab
assistants to custodians.
"C 0 0 P E R A T I O N be-
tween the departments and this
office has been very satisfying,"
Sellers said.
"This program has helped
the department to get the job
done, and has helped some stu-
deits who need jobs."
One such student, Victoria
Relco, echoed this assessment
of the new program. "I think
it's really super. I wouldn't
have gotten a job otherwise,"
she said.
Belco had applied to the
grounds crew for employment
last winter, but was unable
to secure a position. With the
funds from the fifty-fifty pro-
gram, however, the grounds
crew was able to hire more
people for the summer.

Gov.Milliken addresses
daughter's Law graduation

Governor William Milliken's
daughter, Elaine, graduated
from the University Law School
Saturday after hearing her
beaming father caution some
300 prospective lawyers gather-
ed for "Senior Day" cere-
monies. "We should not be
afraid," the governor said, "to
dismantle old programs and re-
peal old laws that have out-
lived their usefulness or failed-
in their objectives."
Ms. Milliken, standing almost
a head taller than her father
and strikingly similar to him
with her short-cropped hair,
commented, in an emotional
near-whisper, on her finishing
law school. "I'm very pleased,
in fact I'm thried," she said,
ROWEVER, she is stil un-
sure of exactly what she wants
to do with her law degree. For
this summer, at least, she
plans to continue her work at

Mr. and Mrs. Milhiken, re-
poiciog sver their daughter's
&dievement, are not overly

concerned with her indecisive-
ness. The governor's wife, Hel-
en, said, "I don't care what job
she (Elaine) chooses - so long
as it's a fruitful one," and com-
mented radiantly, "I'm terribly
pleased. I'm sure I couldn't
have done it (completed law
Milliken, when asked if he
wanted his daughter to also be-
come a governor, stated, "I
would not make that decision for
her, and, pausing with a
twinkle in his eye, added, "but
I could not wish it on her"
Elaine said she has no political
ambitions yet.
THE JUBILANT father made
his daughter blush when he de-
clared to the 4,00t persons at-
tending the speech in Rackham
Lecture hall, "It is a very
proud day, as parents, for both
my wife and me." The gover-
ner could appreciate how hard
Elaine has worked for the past
four years as he too complet-

But the parents could hardly
find time to express personal

LOCAL barbers present an exhibition of geometric haircutting Sunday at Campus Inn. Hair:
cutters Vaughn Hood and David Fritz demonstrate the refinement of a number of techniques
on a pair of models.
rrLoal bareremonstrations
feature geometric haircutting

During hot . summer days,
people tend to seriously consid-
er getting the hair cuts they've
been putting off from week to
week. Barbers greet this sea-
son with pleasure, trying new
techniques and styles to lure
back their shrinking clientele.
With an eye on a brighter fu-
ture, the Barberman barber
shops sponsored a hair cutting
demonstration last Sunday at
the Campus Inn.
The day-long exhibition fea-
tured geometric hair cutting,
"a form of precision hair cut-
ting," by Tom Torres, of "The
Barberman." David Fritz, an-
other Barberman, says "We
picked it up from Vidal Sas-
BILLED AS ,"ABarber Show
for Barber People," the pro-
gram was a demonstration of
the hair cutting technique for

area barbers. Although the $12
admission included dinner, a
sparse crowd of only 25 attend-
ed the show.
"I would call the geometric
style perfect hair cutting," says
Vaughn Hood, also of The Bar-
berman. "It's very refined, in-
credibly an art." Although The
Rarberman's staff considers
this cut special and unique, it
appears to be simply a refine-
ment of many past hair cutting,
A geometric haircut takes
about an hour. "With the time
and energy it takes to do," Hood
says, "it's worth any price you
put on it" The Barberman
charges $9-12 for their cut.

hair every other week or so

asks, "how could you call it
Hood claims the geometric
haircut has been popular.
"Within a month after I opened
I was booking a week ahead,"
he claimed.
Demonstration shows for
Michigan barbers occur nearly
every month, but most are-
sponsored by products sup-
pliers, who use them as a ve-
hicle to push their line instead
of their reputation.
A L T H O U G H it wasn't
the first show The Barbarman
had sponsored, Sunday's exhi-
bition was quite informal, as if
it had been organized at the
last minute.
The audience was young, and
dress ranged from the blue
jeans and work shirt of one
model to the canary tuxedo of
one of a barber.
