GEO trial
goes on
and on.
The pre-trial hearing concerning
jharges against 44 members of the Grad-
ste Employee's Organization (GEO)
arrested last February for trespassing
while picketting near the University
last Department, continued yesterday.
Captain Kenneth Klinge of the City
i'alice Department was unable to show,
hile testifying for the prosecution, that
arl the people arrested on February 27
and 28 were present when trespass
7-rnings were issued. As defense Attor-
ny Donald Koster read the names of
the defendants, asking Klinge if they
had heard the warning being issued,
Klinge repeatedly answered "i'll have
to refresh my memory."
KOSTER continued to show that
Klinge apparently had no record of
who was present when warnings were
issued, but only a list of those arrested
to refer to.
The defense has been working for dis-
missal of the trespassing charges against
the GEO members arguing that the area
in which arrests were made is fre-
qoently used by pedestrians en route to
University football games.
Klinge testified that he had stopped
trucks when the pickets were arrested.
This was the first time both sides agreed
that trucks were prevented from leaving.
Earlier testimony had established that

'U' pledges no financial aid cutbacks

Despite an austere state ap-
propriations outlook for the com-
ing fiscal year, University offi-
cials yesterday reiterated their
intent to maintain financial aid
fonds at their present levels.
"I know that the Unversity
has made a commitment not to
cat back on student aid," said
Thomas Butts, director of the
Office of Financial Aid.
ROUGHLY A third of the Uni-
versity's student population re-
ceives some form of financial
assistance, either federal or
state scholarships, work-study
programs, or guaranteed bank

Butts said his office will be
making student aid commit-
ments later this summer predi-
cated on last year's total ex-
penditures, which were approxi-
mately $30 million.
Lawrence Fincher, assistant
vice president for state rela-
tions, explained that although
the University's total state ap-
propriation has yet to be final-
ized, the line has to be held on
financial aid funding.

said Fincher.
Although a clear assessment
of student needs and available
funds will not be available un-
til mid-July, Butts said he is
fairly certain the financial aid
office will be able to accommo-
date at least as many students
as it did last year with some
form of assistance.
"I don't see any need to pan-
ic," asserted Butts. He did ac-
knowledge, however, the fall
would be "a challenging time."

"THERE IS a precedent for BUTTS SAID the net effect of
this kind of action because stu- the state's high unemployment

Women hu
The current economic crisis,
with its high incidence of unem-
ployment and job layoffs, may
have a more devastating effect
on women than on men, accord-
ing to results of a recent survey
of Detroit blue collar working
The findings grew out of re-
search conducted by Dr. Ra-
chelle Warren of the Institute
of Labor and Industrial Rela-
tions - a joint unit of the Uni-
versity of Michigan and Wayne
State University.
IN TESTIMONY before the
New York Commission on Hu-
man Rights hearings on "Wo-
men in Blue Collar, Service and
Clerical Occupations," Warren
stated that unemployed women
report feeling more stress than
their male counterparts. War-
ren attributed this stress to the
scarcity of support systems
available to unemployed wo-

gan banks to determine their
willingness to dispense federal-
ly-insured loans in the coming
year. He added the rate of loan
default in Michigan is not com-
parable to the "horror stories"
other states have had to cope
with in their loan programs.
Butts said the most recent de-
fault rate figure he had seen for
Michigan was 7 percent.
"I think we're in fairly good
shape," said Richard English,
associate vice president for aca-
demic affairs, "even though
we are in a difficult financial
irt more
wic crunch
"Women, especially unem-
ployed women, cannot rely on
the traditional support systems
as men do, therefore it comes as
no surprise that their stress
levels are higher," Warren re-
According to Warren, the
study, entitled "Helping Net-
works Project", is unique in
that it is the first of its kind to
deal with women who are un-
employed, rather than with

"Helping Units in the Urban

for its "help giving" potential,
It sought to discover where peo-
ple seek help within their com-
munity when confronted with
the pressures of unemployment..
Warren concluded that while
blue collar women report having
more stress, they receive less
