Cost of 'U' hospital
will not be appealed
Fans dish out to see
major boxing bout

The cost of building the new Univer-
sity Hospital will remain at $285
million, as the regional health plan-
ning agency voted yesterday not to
appeal the hospital's budget hike.
By a resounding no vote, the
executive committee of the Com-
prehensive Halth Planning Council of
Southeastern Michigan decided not to
appeal the $75 million budget increase
according to Della Goodwin, commit-
DESPITE THE PLANNING agen-
cy's recommendation to keep the
hospital's cost at $210 million, the in-
crease had been approved by the state
Department of Public Health last
"We're weary after two years,"
Goodwin said, "we've fought a num-
ber of battles with the University
Hospital." Agency President Terren-
ce Carroll promised, however, that
the agency would continue to keep an
eye on the hospital's progress.
Scheduled construction for the five-
year project will begin Oct. 1 with
demolition of the North Outpatient
building. Groundbreaking for the 11-
story main hospital is planned for Oct.
UNIVERSITY President Harold
Shapiro has said that construction
costs will not exceed the $285 million
limit, although state guidelines would
allow costs to escalate by $43 million
without prior state approval.
The planning agency has con-
tinuously fought for a reduction in the
size and cost of the new hospital,
which was originally approved in 1978
by University Regents at a cost of $310
million. A $210 million cost ceiling was
imposed by the public health depar-
tment in 1979.
THE HEALTH department en-
couraged the University to seek an in-
crease when hospital planners said
the cost ceiling would necessitate
dropping portions of the project.
Gov. William Milliken, the state
legislature, and budget director
Gerald Miller gave approval to the
hike earlier this summer, before the
health planning agency reviewed the
proposal last month.
The state legislature has authorized
the sale of $102 million in hospital
revenue bonds to cover the increased
cost, in addition a $33 million increase
in appropriations to the hospital-for
a total of $173 million in state funds.

In one corner stands the popular guy
who sips 7-UP on TV with his cute son.
In the other corner stands someone
nicknamed the "Hit Man," who has a
knack for knocking people out.
Tonight in sold-out Hill Auditorium,
about 4,000 boxing fans, e ach having
shelled out $25, will watch Sugar Ray
Leonard and Thomas "Hit Man" Hear-
ns fight to determine who will be
crowned the number one Welterweight
THAT'S RIGHT, a whopping $25
each, and they're not even going to see
the bout live. They'll be viewing the
match on a close circuit movie screen.
Expensive? That all depends on how
thick your wallet is.
"IT'S A ONE SHOT deal for me, said
LSA sophomore Mark Ruzzin. "I'd only
spend this much money for this fight."
Larry Desjarlais isn't so sure he'd
pay $25. "For $10 I'dgo to a major fight
like this one or to the NFL playoffs, but
anything else isn't worth it," said the
"The fight has been too hyped up,"
says Engineering sophomore Steve
Martin. "It's a waste of money."
Besides, Martin asserted, the fight
won't last long enough because Hearns
will win in the fifth round.
Hype or no hype, Leonard and Hearns
will step into the ring at Ceasar's
Palace in Las Vegas tonight, will battle
it out, and in the end, God willing each
will go home several million dollars
