An eight month vacancy for a full-time black
representative slot in the Office of Minority Student
*Services has created a dispute between University
administrators and concerned student groups over
the need for such a position.
In June 1980, MSS Black Representative Richard
Garland was discharged for "behavioral problems,"
according to Community Services Director Thomas
Moorehead. Since that time Jemadari Kamara, Trot-
ter House director, and Greg Fawcett, student ser-
vices program analysis director, have been appoin-
ted to perform Garland's research and counseling
duties.
t However, both staffers stressed that their time
commitments are limited due to other jobs. "I assist
them in-data gathering," Fawcett said. "I am not a
replacement for Richard Garland."
Until recently, the office was staffed with four full-
time members-an Asian American, a Black, a
Hispanic, and a Native American-to coordinate per-

sonal, academic, and cultural programs for minority
students. Now there is only one full-time staff mem-
ber.
According to Moorehead, who supervises the Office
of Minority Student Services, the recent departures
of the Asian American and Hispanic representatives
are due to a combination of 6ersonal and professional
reasons.
He said Margaret Torres, the Hispanic staffer, left
the office recently to take a better job in Chicago.
Asian American representative Ann Lyons also left
her job last week, Moorehead added. Lyons could not
be reached for comment.
Moorehead said appropriate search committees
are being formed to fill the vacancies.
Meanwhile, the lack of a full-time black
replacement for Richard Garland has alarmed
student groups. Efforts by the groups have been
made since September to secure a replacement for
Garland.
"That office is supposed to assist black students on

campus,' said Regina Hunter, coorainator oI the
council of Black Student Organizations. "Everytime
I talk to them (Henry Johnson, Vice-president for
Student Services, and Director Moorehead) I get
something different."
Hunter said Johnson and Moorehead told her in
December that there was sufficient need for a full-
time black representative, and that interviewing for
the spot would begin in mid-January. "They said
there would be someone by the end of March," she
added.
BECAUSE OF THE, budget crisis facing the
University, special review committees have been
established to review MSS and all non-academic
counseling services, Johnson explained.
A number of academic and non-academic units at
the University, such as the geography department
and Recreational Sports, have been subject to exten-
sive reviews which will lead to staff layoffs, service
cutbacks, and program discontinuation.
Hunter said she called Student Services officials in

Former
*governor
Grasso
dead at 61
HARTFORD, Conn. (AP)-Ella
.Grasso, Connecticut governor for six
years and the first woman in U.S.
history to be elected governor without
following her husband into office, died
yesterday night of complications due to
cancer. She was 61.
Hartford Hospital spokesman James
Battaglio announced Grasso's death
just a few hours after he said she had
slipped into a coma and was "totally"
unconscious. The former governor, suf-
fering from cancer of the liver and in-
testine, had been listed in critical con-
dition since Sunday and had slipped in
and out of consciousness.
BATTAGLIO SAID then that Grasso
became comatose as of 7 a.m. yester-
day, and that her "family has been
called and has been with her all day."
She was not on any life-support
systems.
Mrs. Grasso, a hard worker known
for frugality who was a force in Connec-
ticut politics for some 30 years, ended
her second gubernatorial term'at the
midway point because of liver cancer.
"I make this decision with a heavy
heart but with full appreciation that the
people's business must continue at the
highest level," she said in announcing W
her resignation effective Dec. 31, 1980, for
adding "all of my life has been one of ov

The director of the Center for Research on
Learning and Teaching said he is trying to
find a way to make the 25 percent cutback in
the center's budget without losing 25 percent
of its effectiveness.
CRLT - an instructional resource center
which provides faculty workshops, course
evaluations, and placement examinations -
is one of the non-academic programs
targeted by the University administration
for sizable fnancial cutbacks.
CRLT DIRECTOR Wilbert McKeachie
submitted a preliminary outline of the cen-
ter's programs and services to be reduced
by the budget cutback in January to Univer-
sity administrative committees that will
ultimately decide in which areas the
specific cuts in CRLT's service will be
made.
According to the proposed outline, $93,350
would be cut from CRLT's budget of

choose between fighting inflation and
fighting unemployment.
"In the past we've tried to fight in-
flation one year and then when unem-
ployment increased turn the next year
to fighting unemployment with more
deficit spending as a pump primer," he
said. "So again, up goes inflation. It
hasn't worked."
Reagan's speech offered him one of
his first opportunities to use his office
as a lever on Congress, which may be
reluctant to go along with his proposals
to reduce the growth in federal spen-
ding on some politically popular
programs.
By giving the speech last night, one
day before Congress begins a long Lin-
coln's Birthday recess, he hoped to
warm up the public to his budgetary
medicine, White House aides said.
Republican congressional sources
said David Stockman, the director of
the Office of Management and Budget,
is predicting that the administration's
economic plan will bring inflation down
to a 6 percent annual rate by the end of
1982. The rate of price increases in 1980
was 12.4 percent.

WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Reagan, declaring that the nation is
suffering from its "worst economic
mess since the Great Depression," said
last night that the government must
make dramatic cuts in taxes and spen-
ding because the economic judgement
day is at hand.
He held federal policies responsible for-
"an economic calamity" and said his
remedy would begin with three years of
10 percent income tax rate reductions
and budget cuts "in virtually every
department" of government.
"WE MUST ACT and adt now," hli
said. "We must not be timid." Solemn,
seated at his desk in the Oval Office,
Reagan said in his first broadcast
report to the nation, "Over the years,
we have let negative economic forces
run out of control. We have stalled the
judgment day.
"We no longer have that luxury," he
said. "We are out of time." Reagan's
speech was studded with statistics, but
short of details. He said those will come
when he unveils a legislative program
to Congress on Feb. 18.

"It will propose budget cuts in vir-
tually every department of gover-
nment," the president said, and he
directed the Cabinet to search out and
eliminate "waste, extravagence and
costly administrative overhead."
"AT THE SAME time we are doing
this, we must go forward with a tax
relief package," he said. "I shall ask
for a 10 percent reduction, across-the-
board, in personal income tax rates for
each of the next three years." He did
not say when the tax cut would first
take effect under his plan.
Even as Reagan prepared his speech,
congressional leaders were debating
whether tax cuts should precede spen-
ding cuts. "We cannot delay" either, he
said.
"There were always those who told us
taxes couldn't be cut until spending was
reduced," he said. "Well, we can lec-
ture our children about extravagance
until we run out of voice and breath. Or
we can cure their extravagance simply
by reducing their allowance."
REAGAN, WHO earlier in the day
described his speech as "a simple
lesson in economics," decried having to

$361,143. The center's instructional
development fund, which provides grants
for faculty teaching projects, would be cut
by about 90 percent and the Evaluations and
Examinations Office would be virtually
eliminated.
Furthermore, McKeachie said about
seven staff positions would be cut, and staff
travel, utilities, and bookkeeping would also
be significantly reduced if his recommen-
dations are approved.
McKEACHIE SAID ONE of CRLT's most
widely-used services is the instructor-
designed course evaluation questionaire,
which is now used in at least 5,000 courses.
The center also conducted almost 350
teaching workshops last term to train
University teaching assistants.
The proposal, drawn up by McKeachie af-
ter consultation with CRLT staff, will be
examined by both the CRLT review com-

tbacks
mittee and the University Budget Priorities
Committee, both of which are composed of
faculty members, students and ad-
ministrators. The proposal, if approved by
the two lower committees, will then advan-
ce to the Committee on Budget Ad-
ministration, which will grant final ap-
proval or denial.
DURING A HEARING of the CRLT
review committee yesterday afternoon,
Vice-President for Academic Affairs Bill
Frye warned that the financial cuts being
made are both permanent and long range.
"I think we should keep in mind that this
(budget-cutting) is not a shoilt-run
phenomenon . . . It is really part of the
process of the University's self-scrutiny.
There are positive and elective reasons (for
making the cutbacks). It's not just a respon-
se to a deficit in the budget caused by the
state, Frye added.

more than 25 percent of its budget.

Rising enrollments
HIGHER EDUCATION is gaining in popularity
according to the current University enrollment
figures for winter term. The University enrolled
396 students more than last year, bringing the
total to 44,604. The enrollment at the Ann Arbor campus,
34,609. is 213 more than last year, officials say. Of that total,

seating arrangements at formal city ceremonies and din-
ners. Byrne said the aide will help build the image of
Chicago as an "international city" in an effort to remove
some of the crime syndicate stain from the city's reputationi
that has lingered since the Al Capone days. The mayor has
two other administrative aides, who earn $38,000 each, also
responsible for arranging lunches and dinners with visiting
foreign dignitaries. Who ever said a reputation can't be
bought? l

town's mayor who asserts the macabre grave is the resting
place of a 19th century merchant family. "When asked, I
