Students lobby for state funds
LANSING (UPI) - Student leaders
came away from a day of lobbying at
the Capitol yesterday with support for
their plan to study college funding woes
but no firm dollar commitments.
Jane Hershey, president of the
Oakland University student body, said
she was pleased that her group had
rade at least "a start in its efforts to
win" improved funding for higher
education in Michigan.
HERSHEY WAS one of 13 state
* college presidents who made the trek to
Lansing as part of a coordinated lob-
hying effort. All state supported four-
year institutions except Lake Superior
State College and Grand Valley State
Colleges were represented.
Michigan student assembly president
Jon Feiger, from the University, also
attended the day-long lobbying effort.
The group met with various state
representatives and senators and key
Milliken administration budget of-
ficials, pressing its proposal for
creation of a special task force to study
the problems of higher education.
THE TASK FORCE would consist of
the presidents of all 15 state colleges
and universities, key lawmakers from
the House and Senate and represen-
tatives of the administration. A student
representative might also be included.
The panel would be charged with

Scott DeKuyper, vice president of the

Gerald Miller was "very receptive to
the idea" as was a key lawmaker.

others outlining its specific proposal

CHICAGO (AP)- Seven kinds of bac-
teria have been found to cause Legion-
naires' disease and evidence is growing
that drinking water is a prime carrier,
researchers said yesterday.
At a meeting of the American Society
for Microbiology, doctors from Pen-
nsylvania and the Netherlands reported
finding bacteria in the drinking water
of hospitals where outbreaks of Legion-
naires' disease occurred.
Dr. Arthur Reingold of the Centers
for Disease Control in Atlanta said it
has not yet been proven that the bac-
teria in the water caused the disease, a
type of pneumonia, but he thinks that
such proof eventually will be found.
"We would like to find that those who
got Legionnaires' disease drink more
water or take more showers," said
Reingold. "The vast majority of people
who bathe in that water, and drink it
don't get Legionnaires' disease. We are
trying to find out why."
Millgr "did not give us a commitment
that there would not be more cuts" in
higher education, she said. The budget
director did, however, say the ad-
ministration believed no more cuts will
be needed in any area this fiscal year,
Colleges and universities lost $22.4
million in Milliken's recent $270 million.
executive budget cutting order.
Higher education "is not a special in-
terest," insisted Steve Fawcett,
president of the NMU student body.
Instead, he said, a strong college
system is "a critical issue . . . in the
future of Michigan and very important
for the economic recovery of the state."
