*not draft,
* students

EAST LANSING (UPI) - While President Carter's
draft registration proposal has stirred protest on
many campuses, Michigan State University students
seem more interested in regaining drinking rights
than fighting the military.
Hundreds have rallied against the draft at the rival
University of Michigan, but there has not yet been
one protest disturbing the peace of picturesque, tree-
lined MSU campus.
NEARLY 400 students responding to a phone-in poll,
conducted by the campus newspaper, the State News,
said they favored the draft while only 109 said no.
"There has been no push from students to do
anything about the military draft," said 22-year-old
Bruce Studer, president of the MSU student body.

"The move to petition.to lower the drinking age is
our main priority right now," the Shelby native said.
STUDER SAID he does, however, expect the
student governing bpdy to soon adopt a policy op-
posing the registra 'on and draft and demanding
deferments for colle b students.
The Public Intere t Research Group in Michigan
(PIRGIM), which oiganized the rally in Ann Arbor,
hopes to hold one in East Lansing next week.
Just how militant the protest will be remains to be
seen. Organizers reportedly have considered holding
the rally indoors figuring it's too cold to march
around outside.
THE CAMPUS mood is one of apathy and wait and
see, Studer said.
If the world crisis with Russia gets worse, he said,

some students will enlist or go to Canada, but most
will allow themselves to be drafted.
"There's a lot of worry out there," he said.
"Nobody wants to be drafted, but they're not willing
to fight it."
"This is not the 60s any more, its the 80s and it's too
much trouble to go out and protest," said Bill McGin-
niss, 22, from Dearborn.
Kevin Rushton, 21, a senior in foreign relations
from Grosse Pointe said, "I think a lot of people
would enlist. It's not going to be another Vietnam."
"I would allow myself to be drafted for a non-
combat position as a secretary or a nurse or
something, but really I don't think my mom and day
would let me go to war," said Carol DeNike, 21,. from

"There has been no
push ,from students
to do anything about
the military draft."

Given the current world situation, the message on this bridge in the Arb could refer to a host of ailments, from the
hostages in Iran to Michian's 21-year old drinking age. Take a pick.

r way the student would have to begin paying
erest on the loan back right away. The SSL's one
hes his advantage is that, unlike the NDSL, the
dent hs student would not have to demonstrate
t a threefinancial need to qualify for it.
t ANOTHER TYP!, of loan currently
available that would be affected by
Carter's new budget proposals is the
Guaranteed Student Loan (GSL). The
GSL is insured by the government, but
the student contracts for it through an
i intermediary such as a bank, the state,
or. the University. The GSL currently
carries a seven per cent interest rate,
and does not have to be paid back until
after the student graduates. Congress
recently passed a law that frees a
student of having to prove financial
need to qualify for a GSL.
Carter's budget proposal would
ex?, eliminate the GSL, and replace it with
loans from the new Basic Loan
cert, Program (BLP). The BLP would be
granted on exactly the same terms as
the GSL, except that students would
again have to demonstrate financial
Aud. need to qualify.
According to Zimmerman, fewer
Aud. students would apply for federal loans
under Carter's program. "It would cost
too much . . . The additional cost (of
the SSL) would be significant because
of the higher interest rate," he said.
nion RECENTLY THE University has
seen an increase in the number of loans
it has granted. University students
were given $12.6 million in loans
through the GSL program during .the
tate, last school year. The total for the
current school year is expected to ex-
ental ceed $25 million, according to Zim-
Viet- Applications for Work/Study em-
ployment have decreased recently, as
and loan requests have gone up, according
cian to Zimmerman.

LANSING (UPI) - House Speaker
Bobby Crim yesterday blasted Gov.
William Milliken's 1980-81 budget
proposals, saying they are out of balan-
ce by nearly $160 million.
In a news conference, the Davison
Democrat also predicted legislation
now in the works - plus reform of the
workers' compensation system - will
cost the state nearly $200 million more.
"THIS LEAVES me to believe we
have an unrealistic budget in terms of
what has been recommended," he said.
Crim said the state Department of
Social Services has already exceeded
Milliken's projections.
"Social service caseloads are going
up at a rate of 1,000 a month," the
speaker said. "This means a cost'of $2.3
million per thousand, and we're
already 10,000 over Milliken's
HE ALSO criticized the governor's
plan to use federal energy assistance
money to pay for increases in Aid to
Dependent Children programs.
"Number one, the bill hasn't passed
yet, and if it is, I don't know that we can

use the money in that fashion," Crim
But the speaker said he will not sup-
port new taxes unless Milliken does.
"THE VOTES aren't there," Crim
said. "It has to be a bipartisan effort."
Milliken's proposed budget for the
fiscal year beginning in October totals
$4.9 billion in general fund spending.

He labeled as "ridiculous" a proposal
by Shiawassee County Drain Com-
missioner robert Tisch aimed at cutting
property assessments in half.
"Whoever put it together did not un-
derstand the state budget," Crim said.
"It's as bad as his first one which failed
in 1978. Even the govenor's analysis
wasn't that bad."
