SACUA
offers 'U'
reduction
proposals

By RITA CLARK
Once again faculty members raked over the
coals the "smaller but better" concept for the
University at yesterday's Senate Assembly
meeting.
This time, the assembly and more than 50
people in the audience responded to the Senate
Assembly Committee on University Affairs' ver-
sion of the retrenchment policy proposed by
University President Harold Shapiro last June.
SACUA PROPOSED two resolutions calling
for:
* ". . a policy for The University of Michigan
of maintaining academic quality by becoming a
smaller University through selective program
reduction and discontinuance;"

* participation of faculty members in making
the program reductions.
MOST OF THE meeting was spent discussing
the first resolution. Yesterday was the first op-
portunity faculty members had to discuss
SACUA's resolutions specifically, although they
did comment on retrenchment last June when
Shapiro spoke before the assembly. SACUA has
been working since that time to develop the
proposals.
Although there was general agreement among
assembly members that the University is in
financial trouble, there was little indication as to
whether the body as a whple was in favor of
either of the two resolutions.
"The faculty was thinking very carefully,"

SACUA Chairman Arch Naylor said. He added
there was a fifty-fifty chance the assembly would
be ready to vote on the resolutions by the
February meeting. °
FACULTY MEMBERS gave diverse respon-
ses to the two proposals.
"How is getting smaller going to save us any
money or make us better?" Education Prof.
Loren Barrit asked the assembly. He explained
that if the University admits fewer students
there would be less tuition paid and less state ap-
propriations.
Later in the meeting, Barrit made a plea to the
Assembly to question whether the resolutions
were the best way to, alleviate the University's
financial crunch. "I don't think we have fully ex-

plored the options."
ELIAS BAUMGARTEN, a philosophy
professor from the University's Dearborn cam-
pus, suggested investigating the "autonomous
athletics' budget." He said that perhaps some of
the money could be transferred to other parts of
the University or used to fund some of the
recreational sports.
Bruce Friedman, a professor of pathology and
a SACUA member, said he felt those cuts that
are made must differential rather than across
the board.
LSA student government member Emerson
Baty urged members of the assembly to also
thoroughly discuss the effects the resolutions
would have on affirmative actions.

Iranians
By DAVID MEYER
The Michigan Student Assembly last
night issued a public apology to Iranian
University students for its delay in of-
ficially recognizing a campus Islamic,
student group.
In its meeting last week, MSA post-
poned consideration of an application
for official recognition by the United
Friends of the Islamic Republic of Iran
after MSA member Bruce Brumberg
voiced concern that the group might be
affiliated with the government of Iran.
Brumberg planned to investigate the
group's activities and affiliations but
later decided to drop the probe after
speaking with members of the
organization.
MEMBERS OF the Iranian student
group explained that their organization
was designed to promote cultural and
educational exchange between the
United States and Iran.
MSA granted official recognition to
the group last night and approved a
motion by MSA member Amy Hartman
to publicly apologize to Iranian studen-
ts on campus for the misunderstanding
which led to the planned investigation.
The apology expressed regret for any
unjustified implications against
Iranian students that last week's post-
ponement might have fostered.
Earlier in the meeting, a represen-
tative of the Revolutionary Workers
League presented to the Assembly a
petition demanding immediate
recognitiorif te Iranian group and an
end to MSA's "general harassment" of
Iranians ohreampus.

Burger Chef robbed
A knife-wielding man robbed the
Burger Chef on 3325 Washtenaw of
an undisclosed amount of cash late
Sunday night, Ann Arbor police Sgt.
Harold Tinsey said yesterday. The
suspect, described as a man in his
mid-20s, entered through an
unlocked rear door at about 10:30
p.m. and threatened an assistant
manager and a female employee
before locking them in a walk-in
freezer and escaping with the
money. A third employee, who was
in the basement at the time of the
robbery, discovered them in the
freezer. Burger Chef manager Don
Davis had no comment.
