*Students
face tight
job market
By KATHLYN HOOVER
As if holding down a full time job and going to
graduate school aren't enough, Dan Kaller is looking
for a second job to help him scrape by and pay his
tuition bills.
Gary Johnson, an undergraduate, cut his course load
in half this term to take a full time job to pay for school.
Now, Johnson says, he is looking for a part-time job to
pay for next year.
Kaller and Johnson are only two of an increasing
number of students who have had to take on extra jobs
in order .to stay in school. And as more and more
,.tudents enter the race for jobs, employment is
oming increasingly elusive in Ann Arbor,
according to both University placement officials and
many local employers.
OFFICERS AT THE University's student em-
ployment office are blaming shrinking financial aid
and the state's generally sluggish economy for the in-
creased pressure on students to finance their
educations by working part-time or full-time jobs.
Carolyn Nuber, a University student employment of-
ficer, also explained that more students are qualifying
*or and accepting work-study jobs.
"Three years ago we couldn't find enough students to
}fill the jobs," Nuber said. "This year we need more
jobs."
NANCY LONGMATE, coordinator of student. em-
ployment for the University's Office of Financial Aid,
said there is a definite increase in the number of
students working this year.
She said in the past several years about 50 percent of
students who qualified for work-study positions turned
them dqwn. This year, however-though there are no
definite statistics-it appears that fewer students are
declining their work-study job offers, she said.

Leonard
TKOs.
ilearns,

in

14th

By LARRY FREED
It was billed as the showdown bet-
ween the boxer and the puncher. Unfor-
tunately for former WBC welterweight
champion Thomas Hearns, Sugar Ray
Leonard possessed the latter quality in
their title unification bout last night in
Las Vegas.
Leonard scored a TKO against Hear-
ns in the 14th round after knocking the
Motor City Cobra twice to the canvas in
the previous round. Leonard, who en-
tered the 13th round trailing almost
irreversably, picked up from the mid-
dle rounds and landed a solid hook to
the chin of Hearns, sending the
Detroiter to the canvas for the first
time in his professional career.
SMELLING THE kill, Leonard then
unleashed multiple combinations to the
already sore midsection of Hearns.
This sent the Hitman reeling to the
ropes as the bell signaled the end of
the round.
IT WAS JUST a matter of time in the
14th round before the referee signalled

an end to the contest.
The victory was Leonard's 31st
win-22nd by knockdown--against only
one defeat. It was Hearns' first defeat
in 33 professional bouts.
Hearns seemed to be fighting his way
out of an earlier predicament and ap-
peared to be coasting to a victory.
HEARNS' TACTICS in the later
rounds surprised the standing-room
only crowd oif 24,083 that had gathered
in the sweltering night air at Ceasars
Palace in Las Vegas.
In the 10th and 11th rounds, Hearns
listened to cornerman Emmanuel
Steward's strategy to recapture his
earlier form which enabled him to take
a surprisingly easy lead over Leonard
in the first five rounds.
Before the stunning conclusion of the
welterweight fight Leonard's success
was only evident in the middle rounds
where he abandoned his earlier clowning
and All-type dancing and fought toe-to
toe with the overpowering Hearns.

Legislators reject cuts in U' aid

By BARRY WITT
Governor William Milliken's
executive order to cut the proposed
state appropriation to the University
this year by $6.1 million was
unanimously rejected by state house
and senate budget committees yester-
day.
Maintaining that the latest proposal;
cut too deeply into the. educational
system, the legislators voted down the
executive order only one hour after
receiving it.
IN SPITE OF the favorable vote,
University Vice President for
Academic Affairs Bill Frye said last
night he is convinced the future for this
year's state appropriations remains
bleak.
The governor still must find ways to
make up the state's $135 million deficit

There

is

n o reason

to believe

(yesterday's vote) improves our
outlook, it just increases the uncertain-

ty

-Bill Frye,
vice president for academic affairs

by Sept. 30, as the state constitution
requires a balanced budget at the end of
each fiscal year.
"There is no reason to believe
(yesterday's vote) improves our
outlook, it just increases the uncertain-
ty," Frye said.
BUT STATE legislators, while ex-
pressing some doubt that the situation
will improve, were more optimistic
than the University administrator.

Rep. Thomas Mathieu (D-Grand
Rapids), chairman of the House sub-
committee on education and a member
of the appropriations committee who
has been outspoken recently in his op-
position to further cuts in education
budgets, said yesterday's vote was
"nothing to cheer about, but at least
we're still in business."
Mathieu said most of his colleagues
on the committee who spoke before the

vote supported saving education from
more deep cuts:
TWO-THIRDS OF the reductions
listed in the executive order came from
K-12 schools, community colleges, and
the state's four-year universities,
Mathieu said. 1
The legislator said he realizes some
cuts will have to be made. "The
pleasure of the victory today is a little
bit shallow because we know that
within a couple of weeks we'll be
dealing with a property tax proposal
(that could decrease government
revenues further),"Mathieu said.
Milliken is expected to propose
property and business tax cuts to aid
the state's ailing economy in his ad-
dress to the legislature today.
Having anticipated reductions in the
state's original promise to increase the

Orr, 'U' defendants
in $15 million suit

By JANET RAE
A former Detroit high school basket-
ball star is charging that the University
and former Michigan basketball coach
Johnny Orr, among others, "con-
spired" to push him through high school
and junior college so that he could play
basketball for Michigan, causing him to
suffer severe mental disabilities.
The suit, which seeks $15 million in
damages, was filed on behalf of Curtis
Jones by his mother, Henrietta, more
than 10 years after Jones suffered a
mental breakdown while attending
school at North Idaho Junior College.
THE SUIT alleges that Jones, who
was labeled a "slow learner," was

Faculty irked by 5.5 percent salary hike

By ANDREW CHAPMAN
University faculty members, facing a
salary raise that will not come close to
the current rate of inflation, expressed
anger yesterday at the administration's
proposed budget plan.
University administrators will go
before the Regents today to ask for a 5.5
percent increase in the salaries of
University faculty members for the
current academic year.
"WHEN WE START cutting back in
higher education then I think we're
doing a disservice to the University and
to the whole country," University
political science Prof. Arthur Miller
said of the modest pay raise.
"Our standard of living cannot be
maintained on salaries of that type,"
Miller said.

'Our standard

of living

cannot

be

maintained on salaries of this type.'
-A rthur Miller,
political science professor

Miller said that he believed
professors may begin to leave the
University in significant numbers to
find higher paying teaching jobs
elsewhere.
The American Association of
University Professors local President
Robert Weeks said he also believes
faculty members may begin defecting
to universities that offer higher
'salaries.

"If we get out of step with our peer in-
stitutions, that's a danger (of losing
faculty) that we'll have to reckon
with," Weeks said.
University economics Prof. Daniel
Fusfeld said he thinks the University
will begin to have problems recruiting
new faculty members.
"THE INFORMATION on who keeps
up with the inflation rate gets around
quickly," Fusfeld siad. "This will com-

pound staffing problems that the Un-
iversity already has."
The University will have the smallest
percentage pay raise among state
schools this current academic year.
Wayne State University leads the state
with a 9.1 percent raise in faculty
salary. Western Michigan University
has the second smallest salary
program in the state with an 8 percent
pay raise forfaculty members.
Last year the average pay raise for
University faculty members averaged
9 percent. Salaries of the University
president and six vice presidents
ranged from 3 percent to 9.5 percent
last year.
"OUR SALARY program looks
bleak," Weeks said. "One wonders why

given an unmerited diploma from Nor-
thwestern High.School so he could enter
the junior college and improve his
academic record to become eligible for
admission to the University.
Special Assistant Attorney General
Peter Davis, who has been assigned to
represent the University in the case,
said the University should not have
been named as a defendant because it
had no official involvement with Jones.
Roderick Daane, general counsel to
the University, said the case involved
an "issue of timeliness." Since most of
the material cited in the suit dates back
to the late 60s, "it makes for some pret-
ty stale stuff," Daane said. He said the
University intends to pursue a statute
of limitation defense.
ACCORDING TO the suit, Jones, who
just turned 33 years old, was
hospitalized for a breakdown he suf-
fered while at the Idaho college because
of "unrelenting razzing, insults, and
taunts" from other students who
discovered that he could not read or
write.
Eight defendants were named in the
suit, including the University, Orr,
former high school coach Fred
Snowden, the Detroit Board of
Education, and North Idaho Junior
College.
JONES' LAWYER, Jerome Quinn,
said the suit was compiled from infor
mation provided by Jones, his mother,
variou~s documents, 'and "other wit-
nesses." It outlines the complexchain
