Vice President for University
Relations and Development Michael
Radock, the administrator who led
fundraising drives that brough the
University more than $400 million,
announced yesterday he would retire
late this year.
The University's public relations
man since 1961, Radock has traveled
around the world in search of
donations for buildings, renovations,
scholarships and fellowships.
DURING THE University's last
capital campaign he spearheaded the
drive that raised $72.8 million - the
largest amount ever raised by a
public university in a single intensive
But Radock, less than two years shy
of 65 - the retirement age for Univer-
sity executive officers - decided he
should allow a new administrator to
begin the next capital campaign,
rather than making his successor
start in the middle.
Radock said he believes the Univer-
sity "must turn to greater private
support because we can only depend
on the state for smaller allocations
HIS DEPARTMENT is making a
special effort to solicit funds from out-
of-state alumni and corporations
because of Michigan's financial
troubles. In California, for instance,
Radock said he precicted Michigan's
presence and victory in the Rose Bowl
will contribute to this year's effort in
"When the football team wins or the
University is rated high
academically, it adds to an alumni
sense of pride in the school," the vice
University administrators, past and
present, expressed nothing but praise
yesterday for Radock's work.
FORMER UNIVERSITY President
Robben Fleming called Radock a
"tremendously important figure at
Michigan. The University has long
been the leader in public relations and
raising money (among all public
schools) and he's been the key figure
Fleming described Radock's fun-
draising tactics as "highly
disciplined." He built up alumni con-
tacts all over the country to do enor-
mous amounts of volunteer work for
Michigan," Fleming said.
Robert Forman, executive director
of the University alumni association,
said Radock's "record for 'harvesting
the crop' has been excellent,"
referring- to the administrator's
ability to solicit alumni donations.
REGENT THOMAS Roach (D-
Saline) credits the vice-president with
initiating Michigan Awareness a
program for "informing and ed-
cucating the public as to the impor-,
tance of higher education in the state
and what has happened to its finances
in recent years."
Roach also said he feels Radock has
contributed a tremendous amount to
making the University a "great in-
stitution as opposed to just another
But Radock credits the University's
already fine reputation as his greatest
aid in raising money. He calls the
"difference between an ordinary and
a great, distinctive university the
'Vital Margin.' "
The University ranks with the
major private institutions such as
Harvard, Princeton, Chicago, Stan-
ford, Johns Hopkins, and Yale in its
fundraising success. For more than a
decade, the University has ranked
among the top 12 schools in the coun-
try in highest gift totals.

'U' officials seek end to hash bash
By DAVID SPAK
The event may have started out as a "forum for
dissent," but the annual April 1st hash bash has tur-
ned into a "forum for vicarious thrill seekers", that
costs the city and University more than $11,000, says
Ann Arbor Police Chief William Corbett.
And, according to university and city officials,'
many members of the'University community would
like nothing better than to see the event discontinued.
UNIVERSITY DIRECTOR of Safety Walt Stevens
said the available evidence seems to support the
claim that "it is time to end the hash bash." Atten-
dance at the event has dropped from an estimated
4,000 at the 1978 Hash Bash to an estimated 1,000 to
1,200 at last year's festivities.
The annual Hash Bash began in 1972 as a local
protest organized primarily to relax or eliminate
laws restricting the possession and use of marijuana.
The gatherings on the Diag, at which many
protestors openly violated existing pot laws, helped
persuade Ann Arbor law makers to pass an ordinance
making the possession of small amounts of the drug
punishable by a fine of $5.
PERHAPS THE MOST glaring evidence of a
change in attitude among both students and Ann Ar-
bor residents is that 90 percent of last year's hash
bash crowd came from outside the area, some from
other states, according to Corbett.
"It is no longer a local get-together," said Ann Ar,-
bor Police Captain Kenneth Klinge.
In addition, the crime rate at the event has in-
creased. Arrests and violations of the law during the
Hash Bash have increased despite the large decrease
in the number of participants. In 1978, 107 violations
were reported. Last year, there were 3,000 fewer par-
ticipants and 129 reported violations.
CORBETT ALSO CITED an "alarming increase in
larcenies and breaking-and-enterings during the past
few years. Last year, there was also a stabbing.
The incidence of vandalism has also increased
during the hash bash, according to Stevens, who ad-
ded that the disruption of classes only serves to
deprive students of their opportunity to gain an
Although many residents of Ann Arbor would like
to see the hash bash come to an end, problems arise
because "there is no good answer to cause the
cessation of the hash bash," said University General
Counsel Roderick Daane. Daane added there were
many problems involving the equal rights of
everyone - not just the University community - to
have access to public properties as long as they don't
break the law.

The University had in 1979 about
$140.6 million in accumulated funds
which the state auditor general says
could be used for general operations
If the auditor had his way, the funds
could help offset the University's in-
creasing requests for state ap-
propriations. The University disagrees
with the auditor's assessment.

James Brinkerhoff sharply criticized
portions of an audit report of the

disagree with the state, is whether the

the funds should be maintained as an
