that these are challenges that can be
Economically, "we can't always rely
on the state legislature," Shapiro said.
Instead, University administrators will
have to be somewhat more creative,
and develop alternatives to help them-
selves. Private Universities are always
faced with this dilemma, Shapiro poin-
No single department will be immune
to cuts, Shapiro continued. "It's a dif-
ficult thing to decide where to cut," he
said. Review committees will be
established to decide on cuts, and these
will have student as well as faculty and
"Students have important perspec-
tives on these issues," Shapiro said.
"Excluding them from the decision
could lead to making the wrong
Criteria for program cuts "depend on
value judgements nd how you relate
them to each other,'' he said. Deans of
the various schools and colleges will

The problem comes when you ac-
tually go to restrict something, Shapiro
said. Then personal questions about
dealing with faculty who have been at
the University for years come into play.
If it comes down to the point where
the positions of tenured faculty are on
the line, the decisions may have to
made centrally rather than in the in-
dividual departments, said Shapiro. "I
don't think it's going to come to that."
Areas of research will probably not
feel the effects of the cuts as strongly,
since they are often federally funded
and do not depend on state allocations,

The studies must go through a num-
ber of channels before they are acted
upon, according to Sunstad. First, they
go to University Housing Director
Robert Hughes, who then consults with
Vice-President for Student Services
Henry Johnson about the committees'
recommendations. Finally, Hughes will
present the reports in their original
form, along with his recommendations,
to the Regents at the board's February
STUDENTS ON BOTH committees
said they felt that although their
recommendations may be voted down
by Hughes or the Regents, their par-
ticipation was significant because it
allowed for student input into decision-
"We do the legwork and participate
in extensive discussion so those (ad-
ministrators) above us won't have to
deal with it," explained Tina Spengos, a
sophomore Engineering student from
Martha Cook who was on the Single
Student Rate Committee.
"Maybe someone could say our effort
was fruitless because the director of
housing could look at our report and
say, 'Forget it.' But we put time into it
and people know we put time into it,"
"I FEEL IT (our input) is worth it
because Hughes is such a responsive
guy," said Engineering student Andy
Miles, a Mosher-Jordan resident. "He
has to live with wfiatever is done, and
our opinions give him insight into how
students feel about things."
Hughes said he has only departed
from the report once during his presen-
tation to the Regents. "That was last
year, when I cut the recommended rate
increase back slightly," he said.
"The committee reports, as the
committees see them, go to the Regen-
ts," Hughes continued. "If I choose to
differ from the report, it's incumbent
on me to explain why I did it."
THE STUDENTS expressed some
concern, however, that the statistics on
inflation, housing expenditures, and
other revenues and expenses given to
them are all prepared by the Housing
"Some of the stuff we did is pretty
much cut and dry," said Spengos. "The
housing staff showed us some documen-
ts from. Washington about inflation, and
Norm (Sunstad) gave us a table
recommending a 9.8 percent increase
(the figure that was eventually decided
upon). IT was pretty evident that dorm
rates had to be increased by at least
that amount to keep up with inflation."
But Carol Williams, a University
Terrace resident and member of the
Family Housing Rate Committee Study
Group, said she wasn't uncomfortable
with looking at only figures prepared by
the Housing Office.
"I don't have any qualms with that,"
Williams said. "My impression is that
they do a darn good job."

Reagan calls for cuts
in Cabinet expenses
WASHINGTON-President Reagan ordered government bureaucrats
yesterday to cut back on equipment purchases and travel and instructed his
Cabinet chiefs to save taxpayers' money by not redecorating their offices.
The order does not apply to Nancy Reagan's plans to refurbish the family
living quarters in the White House.
Reagan said his ban on ofice redecorating and other actions were a
second step in his campaign to "bring the runaway budget under control."
As his first act he ordered a freeze Tuesday on government hiring.
"No single action as far as I know will get our economy back on the road o
full recovery, but we must begin," Reagan said in announcing his latest
More Reagan Cabinet
WASHINGTON-The Seante moved rapidly yesterday toward confirming
the rest of President Ronald Reagan's Cabinet, including the controversial
nomination of James Watt to head the Interior Department, who won ap-
proval by an 83-12 vote.
The Senate also approved:
" William French Smith as attorney general, by a vote of 96-1, with Sen.
William Proxmire (D-Wis.) the only dissenter.
" John Block as secretary of agriculture, 98-0.
" Malcolm Baldrige as commerce secretary, 97-1, with Proxmire voting
" Samuel Pierce Jr. as secretary of housing and urban development, 98-0.
" Andrew Lewis Jr. as secretary of transportation, 98-8.
Sens. Paul Laxalt (R-Nev.) and Sam Nunn (D-Ga.) were away from the
city and did not vote.
Times sale generates fear
LONDON, England-Australian press magnate Rupert Murdoch, whose
newspaper empire includes several U.S. publications that thrive on sex, sen-
sation, and scandal, made a "conditional agreement" to purchase the ailing
Times of London, the Sunday Times, and their three supplements, the
owners announced yesterday.
No price for the package was disclosed, but newspaper industry sources
estimated it could reach about $115 million. Included with the two papers are
literary and educational supplements.
Brunton said Murdoch had agreed formally to uphold the editorial in-
dependence and quality of the newspapers, keep them free from party
political bias and give the editors full editorial freedom.
He stressed the conditional deal was reached only after Times editor
William Rees-Mogg, editor Harold Evans of the Sunday Times, and the
directors of the Times group agreed that Murdoch would "satisfy the
criteria" for the sale.
IRA takes responsibility
for Protestants' deaths
BELFAST, Northern Ireland-Guerrillas of the Irish Republican Army
claimed responsibility yesterday for killing aged Protestant politician Sir
Norman Stonge and his son James amid a resurgence of "eye-for-an-eye"
Police said they believed the attack was in reprisal for the attempted
assassination by Protestants last Friday of Roman Catholic civil rights
crusader Bernadette Devlin McAliskey and her husband, Michael.
Authorities said the terrorists shot Sir Norman, 86, a former speaker of the
Northern Ireland Parliament, and his 48-year-old son Wednesday night and
set off fire bombs that gutted their 230-year-old ancestral home.
Kremlin strips Soviet
authors of citizenship
MOSCOW-Dissident authors Lev Kopelev and Vasily Aksyonov were
reported stripped of their Soviet citizenship yesterday while on trips to the
West, apparently the latest victims of the Kremlin's purge of defiant cultural
A Soviet official said that the Presidium of the Soviet Parliament passed
decrees amounting to banishment from the country of the two authors, who
had both expressed the desire to return home after their time abroad.
Stripping cultural figures of their citizenship while abroad has been one
tactic used previously by the Kremlin to rid the country of influential critics.
Court says couple can seek
damages in severed hands case
LANSING-The Michigan Court of Appeals ruled yesterday a couple may
sue a funeral home for allowing a medical examiner to cut off their
daughter's hands and hair without their knowledge.
The court reversed a Menominee County Circuit Court ruling, saying the
couple can claim the funeral home breached its burial contract by not in-
forming them of the action.
