Legislators claim 'U'

tuition

Huffman added that there
were many areas in which the
University could stand consid-
erable belt tightening. He felt
it was difficult to justify con-
tinuing increases in higher edu-
cation "when you have a pro-
fessor on sabbatical drawing full
salary and riding through Eu-
rope on a bicycle."
Owen says he "does not see
any budget reduction as accept-
able," and will use his Higher
E d u c a t i o n Subcommittee to
fight Milliken's proposals. He
feels that a severe cut would be
disasterous not only for the Uni-
versity, but Washtenaw County
as well.
"WE CAN'T be put in the po-
sition of having to lay off mar-
ginal workers such as clericals,
who would have trouble finding
other types of employment be-
cause of a lack of skills," said
Owen.
He also warned that a tuition
hike might produce a system
of higher education "for only
the very rich or the very poor,
pushing out the people whose
income makes them ineligible
for financial assistance."
Huffman, however, insisted
there would be sufficient finan-
cial aid money available for the
people who needed it.
"YOU HAVE a kid who has
gone through two or three years
of school and has made good
grades," said Huffman, "and all
of a sudden his dad gets laid
off. What the hell are we going
to do? The kid has to finish
school."

increase
Owen hinted the relationship
between the University and ap-
propriations committee mem-
hers has been something less
than, cordial over the last few
years.
"There are some_ University
people who don't seem to think
that legislators are particularly
bright," said Owen. "They feel
that they do not have to be held
to a certain level of account-
ability for the state money they
spend."
OWEN ADDED there are
many legislators who feel some
University administrators are
overpaid, and relatively insen-
sitive to their particular prob-
lems.

certain
"I'd like to see one of those
guys vote for an income tax
increase and- the go back and
justify it to their constituents,"
said Owen.
He added that despite their
"job security, they are in no
position to look down on peo-
ple." Owen cited University
Chief Financial Officer Wilbur
Pierpont as personifying this
attitude.
Owen scoffed at the idea of
administrators taking s a 1 a r y
cuts, calling the notion "irrele-
vant."
"Look at Milliken, he took a
two per cent salary cut. That's
a millionaire taking a two per
cent cut on a $46,000 a year
salary. It's meaningless."
