Political internships: Who needs the'U'?
By BARRY WITT
So you want to work for Sen. Carl
Levin in Washington next summer. Or
perhaps you would like to work on a
project for Amnesty International.
These jobs, and about 170 others, may
be obtained if you're one of ap-
proximately 75 finalists in the Office of
Career Planning and Placement's an-
nual race for summer Public Service
Intern Program positions.
BUT WHAT IF you're one of the 250
students rejected by the program?

L NSING (UPI) The Senate ap-
-proved yesterday a plan to take about
$20.8 million out of a railroad tax fund,
intended in part for bike path projects,
and use it to spare state schools and
colleges - including the University -
from deep budget cuts.
A bill to abolish Michigan's $23
million railroad delinquent tax fund
and use the money to help close up the
state's $135 million fiscal 1981-82 budget
hole was approved on a 26-5 Senate

will receive action early next week.
The House action will come on the eve
of Gov. William Milliken's second at-
tempt to win approval of a $126 million
executive budget cutting order.
Milliken and the legislature must
come to terms by Wednesday when the
fiscal year ends.
THE HOUSE and Senate Ap-
propriations Committees rejected
Milliken's initial proposal last week,
saying it cut too much from state school
programs. The new plan reportedly will
ease the total cuts on schools and
colleges from about $50 million under
the original plan' to just over $20
The University, which had been
marked to absorb $6.1 million in cuts,
could be saved as much as half that.
Vice President for Academic Affairs
Bill Frye, however, warned last week
the state's financial situation remains
tenuous, and the University could
receive a bigger share of future cuts.

Harrison, an intern coordinator in
Senator Donald Riegle's Washington of-
fice. The important thing is the resume
and the qualifications, she said.
THE PROGRAM instructs its
finalists to apply for internships from a
list of Was ington congressional,
special interest, executive, and media
offices, and about six similar offices in
Lansing. But offerings which PSIP lists
are probably only one percent of all the
internships available, according to An-
ne Richter, CPP's Experiential
Education Programs supervisor.
CPP has books filled with the names
of offices that accept summer interns,
said Richter, who began conducting the
program in July.
'(The program) gives a perception that the only
students who can get internships in Washington
are those who go through the program. '

But students running through the
PSIP selection process are not infor-
med of all these possibilities, former in-
tern Dan Sichel said.

Washington," sh.e said.
PSIP "gives a perception that the
only students who can get internships in
Washington are those who go through
the program," Sichel echoed.'
Students pursuing internships in-
dependently not only have access to
CPP job listings, but also can get in-
dividual assistance in writing resumes
and completing application materials.
Since the program's inception in 1969,
more than 700 students have found in-
ternships out of about 3600 applications
received by PSIP, formerly known as
the Washington Internship Program.
THE JOB descriptions include
researching and assisting in drawing
legislation, writing speeches, and per-
forming some clerical services, said

Top University officials gathered in
an open forum yesterday to discuss a
recommendation to eliminate the
University's physical therapy program -
and to hear arguments from the public
on the pros, and cons of discontinuance,
pushing. the program one step closer to
a decision on its future.
Vice President for Academic Affairs
Billy Frye and President Harold
Shapiro listened to comments from
several officials of the University's
medical school and University Hospital
who warned that the program's
academic quality is slipping and urged
that it be dropped from the University.
BUT, PHYSICAL therapy program
director Dr. Richard Darnell 'and'
representatives from Wayne State
University defended the program, and
asked that the University make a
greater commitment to it to reversethe
erosion of its quality.
The forum is part of the University's
standard discontinuance review
process, the same process that was
employed to review the University's
geography department before the
decision was made to eliminate in June.
Frye said he would consider the input
from the forum when making his own
recommendation to the Regents on the
proposal to eliminate the program.
Frye said he hopes to announce his
decision early next month.
MEDICAL SCHOOL Dean John
Gronvall recommended last June that
the physical therapy program be
discontinued. In his remarks at the
forum yesterday, Gronvall again
stressed that the program "is not cen-
tral to the mission of the medical
Gronvall also asserted that the
University cannot afford the $150,000
expenditure he said would be required
to restore the program's quality and
that the program's elimination would
not hurt the quality ofphysical therapy
at University Hospital.
Darnell has also insisted that the
program's quality is inadequate and
thatJ if the University is unwilling to
commit itself to rebuilding the program
the department should be cut.
But he and several others who spoke
at the hearing urged the University to
maintain and enhance the program.
