New MSA funding plan OK'd

Regents approve

Informotion Research Group in
Michigan (PIRGIM).
The Regents voted five to two
to approve the proposal, which
was presented at their Thurs-
day session hy University Vice
President for Student Services
Henry .John.son and MSA Presi-
dent Calvin Luker.
Some criticism of the "nega-

tive check-off" scheme surfaced
Thursday, when a student group
spokesman claimed it was not
truly a voluntary system, as
had been recommended in a
campus-wide referendum last
month.
UNIVERSITY officials main-
tained that a negative check-off
represented a compromise be-
tween the old mandatory funding

plan and total Regental funding
of MSA. The officials reminded
the Board that the student or-
ganization performs many ad-
ministrative functions which the
University would have to take
over if a stable funding scheme
were not available.
Regent Deane Baker was not
convinced, however. "I was
against a negative check-off on
principle when it was proposed
for PIRGIM," he said. "And
I'm opposed to it on principle
now."
THE OTHER Regents, how-
ever, considered the proposal
reasonable. "Though there are
some valid criticisms of the
plan, I just can't think of any
other alternative," said Regent
Robert Nederlander.

search laboratories.
The Regents delayed their
decision for a month, against
the recommendations of the
University administration, so
that adequate criticism and in-
vestigation of recombinant
DNA research could be collect-
ed and presented to them.
"The Regents have had a
good opportunity to review the
problem," said University Vice
President for Research Charles
Overberger in presenting the
proposal to the board. "Not only
-has there been expert advice,
but a very wide discussion of
the issues."

to table the issue until next
month's meeting was made by
Regent Paul Brown (D'Petos
key) who, though he felt per-
suaded by "overwhelming"
evidence in favor of the re-
search, wished to hear testi
mony from two dissenting sci-
entists who had been unable t
address the Board.
"I think we should be will.
ing to go the last mile with
these people," Brown said.
"Then no one can say we
haven't bent over backwards
to hear both sides."
Despite Brown's protest, the
motion to delay approval was
defeated by a four to three
vote
Before accepting the Univer.
sity's proposal, the Regents
amended it in several places
"to ensure," as Regent Sarah
Power (D-Ann Arbor) put it,
"that the University community
is consulted from time to time."
The amendments provide for
review of National Institute o
Health (NIH) guidelines for the
research as they appear, require
the reporting of safety prced
ures to the Regents "at t
annually," and forbid the per
formance of high-risk expe
ments without specific approia
by the Regents.
REGENT David taro
Flint) who pronounced himsel
"strongly in favor" of appro
ing the research, asserted:-T
deny the legitimate pursuito
knowledge is to deny the spir
of this University."
The single dissentieg to
came from Regent Gerald un
(D-Livonia), who remainede oo
vinced that further public di
cussion of the issue was nece
sary. "The question of beic
totally fair in hearing all ide
of this discussion is as ipo
tant as the question of the r
search itself," said Dunn.
His fellow Regents i eple
that sufficient debate had a
ieaity taken place.
