More trouble

LANSING- In the wake of the $22:4 million executive or-
der reduction in state appropriations to higher education,
state officials say the long-term outlook for increased funds
to state institutions is bleak, but the situation is not hopeless.
"We may have to look at new, cheaper ways in which lear-
ning can take place," said Fred Whims, state budget director
of higher education.
"'"Decisions have to be made for the future," he said, adding
"We are thinking about them right now."
THE STATE HAS overbuilt its system of higher education,
Whims said. "There is a large crunch coming, no matter
what is done about the immediate budget problem," he said.
The state will probably experience a major decline in the
enrollment over the next decade, said Thomas Clay, state
budget director. Enrollment in state schools peaked in 1958
and has been dropping steadily since then.
Because the state has so many schools now, Clay said, of-
ficials believe the option over the next five years will be bet-
ween concentrating programs in a smaller number of schools
or allowing weaker programs to survive in a larger number
of schools.

budget. cuts
Committee vote axes
$4.6 million in 'U' funds

By ANDREW CHAPMAN
Special to the Daily
LANSING- The state legislature yester-
day overwhelmingly approved an executive
order from Gov. William Milliken, cutting
this year's state budget by $270 million, and
axing the state's appropriation to the Univer-
sity by more than $4.6 million.
The state House and Senate appropriations
committees, meeting jointly yesterday mor-
ning, easily passed the order 22-6.
THE EXECUTIVE order outlined a
package of cutbacks in a number of areas, in-
cluding higher education, state ad-
ministrative services, and natural resources.
But the hardest area hit by the order is social
services in the state, with a $152 million roll
back in funds.
The state's director of Management and
Budget, Gerald Miller, said the reductions in
state social services, of whichwelfare and
health care took the biggest blows, would not
mean that the state would offer sub-standard
services.
Miller added that while an additional
executive order cutback would of course be
undesirable, he would not rule out the
possibility of a future cutback.
MEANWHILE, state Rep. Gary Owen (D-
Ypsilanti) speculated that there would be
another executive order issued by Milliken
later this fiscal year in the range of $100
million to $200 million.
If another order comes, "it will be almost

catastrophic ... the next cut will hit the social
services and higher education very hard,"
said Owen, who is higher education chair-
man of the House Appropriations Committee.
Rep. Perry Bullard (D-Ann Arbor) also
said that he expects another executive order,
though he would not speculate on its probable
size.
BULLARD SAID that the passing of yester-
day's executive order was "a real tragedy."
Bullard claimed that it came at an especially
bad time because the state's universities and
colleges are already reeling from past budget -
cuts.
"If we don't realize the need to look for new
taxes, we're going to find that we've failed the
people of the state," Bullard said.
In Ann Arbor, University President Harold
Shapiro said the executive order reduction
had forced the University to "maintain our
programs only through massive tuition in-
creases and an embarrassingly meager com-
pensation program:'
SHAPIRO SAID these were only short-run
solutions, and that the University will be
"again left with a budget in deficit and the
prospect of yet another reduction in the mon-
ths ahead."
"I only hope that the elected leaders of this
state realize that any notions of immediate
tax reductions in the face of the current
deterioration of state services will destroy the
foundations on which we all hope to build
Michigan's future," Shapiro said.

Police prmgrm
teaches women
.rape prevention

By ANNM tmk; r AGI
One of the most effective methods of preventing
rape is also the most obvious: Make sure you realize
it can happen to you.
The "self- exception theory"' is a belief held by
many potential victims, according to Ann Arbor
Police Detective Jerry Wright. "They think the other
person- will be the victim, not them;. take
precautions," he warns.
WRIGHT DIRECTS a program, sponsored by the
Crime Prevention Unit of the Ann -Arbor Police,
Department, educating women on how to reduce
their vulnerability to rape. He conducts home safety
surveys and self-protection workshops.
In the past several months seven rapes have been.
reported to police, the most recent occuring Sept. 27
in a home on the 500 block of Lawrence. Despite a
door-to-door canvassing effort by police, no suspects
have been apprehended.
In five of the seven rape cases, the assailant gained
entry to the victim's home through a door or window
that wasn t properly secured. In one case, the rapist

entered through an unlocked door, police said.
BASIC SAFETY precautions, such as locking doors
and securing windows, seem to be ignored by many
people, Wright said. Wright, who 'analyzes the risk
factor in a home and then suggests ways to reduce it,
says a window can be properly secured by placing a
nail in the side of the frame, allowing the window to
be raised just high enough for ventilation, but not
enough for entry.
Sliding glass doors, he said, can be secured by
placing a bar in the bottom track or a pin in the top
corner through the frame, thus preventing the door
from being opened from the outside.#
The best type of lock, he said, is a deadbolt with at
least a one-inch throw. Home security can also be
enhanced by a wide-angle lens or peep hole. Another
simple way to increase your safety at home is by not
opening your door to strangers, he said.
AT NIGHT, a woman should remember to walk in a
confident manner.

James' jazz comes home

for homecoming,

benefit

By IEE LEVINE
Three years ago, jazz pianist/com-
poser Bob Jam'ies returned to Ann Arbor
for the first time since he'd graduated
Wfrom the University-with bachelors,
and masters degrees from the music
school-in 1963. "It was ""e:
emotional-going back the first time ..
playing in Ann Arbor is a great sen-
timental thing for me, because when I
was in Ann Arbor, jazz was pretty much
taboo."
In light of these sentiments it is not
difficult to understand why James is
returning to the Hill stage this Saturday
at 8 p.m. In fact, his second Ann Arbor
reunion will be a special benefit per-
formance for the student-operated
Eclipse Jazz organization. James' visit
will be part of a "Bob James Weekend"
in conjunction with the University's
homecoming festivities.
THE WEEKEND AGENDA will in-
clude a free public workshop conducted
by James today at 2 p.m. in the Pen-

dleton Room of the Michigan Union,
where he will discuss the New York
music industry. The artist's next stop
will be Schoolkids Records, where he
will sign, autographs starting at 4:15
p.m.
At 6 p.m. James will ride in the
Homecoming Parade. And, as if these
activities were not enough, he will then
receive a special citation from School of
Music Dean Boylan during a dinner
scheduled for 8 p.m.
Tomorrow's activities will include
James conducting the University mar-
ching band in a pre-gamerendition of
his hit "Touchdown." Of course, one
musn't forget James' half-time inter-
view with Bob Ofer. And then, it's
"show time" at Hill Auditorium. In tow
will be an all-star aggregation
featuring saxophonist Mark Colby,
trumpeter Mike Lawrence, and
guitarist Hiram Bullock. Drummer
Idris Muhammed and bassist Gary
King will anchor the rhythm section,

along with vocalists Yvonne Lewis and
James' 15-year-old daughter Hilary.
THE ADDITION OF vocalists may
come as a surprise to long-time Bob
James listeners. But on his new bullet
album, Sign of the Times, he utilizes
vocalists for the first time-a result of
his first collaboration with a brilliant
young composer and vocal arranger,
Rod Temperton.
Having previously worked with more
"popular" acts (including the group
Heat Wave, George Benson, and
Michael Jackson), James said Temper-
ton welcomed "the opportunity to stret-
ch without a lead vocal" in a more jazz-
oriented milieu.
Pointing to Duke Ellington, Count!
Basie, and other big bands, James1
declared that it is not new or unusual
for vocalists to be utilized in jazz. "I
wanted to treat the vocals like another
instrument in a real ensemble ap-
proach," he explained.

conference
From AP and UPI
CANCUN, Mexico - President
Reagan gave conditional approval
yesterday to negotiations intended to
narrow the gap between the world's
richest and poorest nations but also
defended the U.S. "track record of suc-
cess" in international economics. He
said it was achieved without "flashy.
new gimmicks."
%Reagan's remarks at the opening of
the North-South summit conference of
22 nations in this Yucatan Peninsula
resort were the first indication sincehe
arrived here Wednesday that his ad-
ministration would take part in "global
negotiations" favored by many of the
participants.
But he said the talks must be based on
"four essential understandings."
