600 MSU students
protest proposed
major budget cuts


proposed elimination of Michigan State
University's nursing and social work
schools sparked an angry protest
yesterday by about 600 students and
faculty members chanting "We want
MSU President Cecil Mackey!"
The demonstrators picketed in front
of the MSU administration building to
emphasize the "devastating" impact of
budget slashing measures MSU is con-
sidering to relieve a severe financial
AN ADVISORY committee appointed
by Mackey suggested Monday that the

College of Nursing and School of Social
Work be eliminated along with MSU's
two residential colleges, along with a
series of other economy moves. MSU
must trim $30 million from its budget
for the fiscal year beginning July 1.
"I just think Mackey is very unfair.
He's given no justification for his
reasons," said Anne Ingalls, a junior in
the nursing college, the second largest
of its kind in the state.
Mackey will review the committee's
advice and make his own proposals to
the MSU Board of Trustees.

WASHINGTON (UPI) -Comptroller
General Elmer Staats said yesterday
President Reagan's economic plan
misses several opportunities to save
billions of dollars and that proposed
savings at the Pentagon are just a
"commendable beginning."
Staats, in his final congressional ap-
pearance after 15 years in office, urged
Congress to consider areas that Reagan
missed and to look closely at proposed
cutbacks in capital improvement
programs, such as highway construc-
HE SAID THE cuts may have been
proposed "without awareness of the
future consequences" to economic
Staats told -the House Budget Com-
mittee tlie administration's plan in-
cludes many suggestions made by his

office in the past but that it omits
several, such as acting on audit fin-
dings and improving federal debt
"I am convinced these areas.
represent missed opportunities which
warrant further examination by the
Congress in its efforts to reduce spen-
ding, taxes and the deficit," he said.
HE GAVE THE panel an almost inch-
thick compilation of General Accoun-
ting Office reports and recommen-
dations on possible budget savings,
many of which have been raised
Staats,ywho heads the congressional
watchdog agency until he retires this
week, said the administration made a
"commendable ' beginning" by
proposing $3 billion in Defense Depar-
tment savings through reduced
overhead and personnel costs.

United Press International reports
State legislature considers
2-year budget timetable
LANSING-House Appropriations Committee Chairman Dominic
Jacobetti wants the state to switch to a two-year budget, but has drawn op-
position to the plan from leaders of both parties.
The powerful Negaunee Democrat said the state's uncertain economy has
created "a real urgency" to explore the idea, which has been floated several
times, but never adopted.
However, House Speaker Bobby Crim (D-Davidson) and Republican Floor
Leader Michael Busch of Saginaw disagreed yesterday.
"We're in enough trouble trying to fit together a one-year budget without
worrying about a two-year plan," Crim said. Busch said lawmakers might
end up spending all the money in the first year.
" Among the advantages to a two-year plan, Jacobetti sasid, is cost con-
tainment. "There is much less opportunity for negative build-up by pressure
groups "said Jacobetti.
Jacobetti also said the appropriations committee subcommittees' work
would be cut in half, with savings to the legislature and to citizens who travel
to appear before the committee.
Soviet Politburo re-elected
MOSCOW-In an unprecedented endorsement of his leadership, Leonid
Brezhnev and the entire 22-member Politburo he dominates were re-elected
unanimously at yesterday's closing session of the Communist Party
The 5,002 delegates packing the Kremlin Palace jumped to their feet and
shouted "Glory to communism" when the 74-year-old Soviet president
brought the congress to an end after eight days of unbroken praise for his
The gathering, which occurs once every five years, was highlighted by
Brezhnev's call for a summit meeting with President Reagan, an invitation
which Brezhnev's chief spokesperson reminded reporters still required a
"proper response" from the White House.
Mardi Gras parade floats
strike, kill 2 children
NEW ORLEANS-Surging Mardi Gras crowds pushed two children under
parade floats in separate incidents yesterday, killing both youngsters and
turning the riotous street celebration into the most tragic in memory.
Two-year-old Margaret McKinzie of New Orleans was with her father
when she was pushed under a float at the disbanding point of the Zulu
Eight-year-old Christian Lambert also of New Orleans, was knocked off a
ladder by a crowd as it fought for favors tossed by float riders in the Elks
Krewe of Orleans parade.
Spectators each year put boxes atop ladders along parade routes for
children to sit on and view the festivities.
Pakistani jet hijacked
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan-A hijacker holding 141 people hostage on a
Pakistani jetliner in Soviet-occupied Afghanistan threatened yesterday to
blow up the plane unless his demands were met for a flight to Iran and the
release of 80 political prisoners.
All 130 passengers and 11 crew members were safe but remained aboard
the Pakistan International Airlines Boeing 720 for a second day at Kabul air-
port while Afghan officials attempted to negotiate theirrelease,
The hijacker, a Pakistani identified as Alamgir, said he was prepared to
release the women and children hostages if the government of Pakistan
apologized publicly for saying he belonged to the outlawed Pakistan People's
Officials first said there was only one hijacker but airline officials said
there were more than two and reliable sources in Islamabad said as many as
11 hijackers boarded the plane as it left Karachi for a two-hour flight to
Peshawar on the Afghan border.
ACLU seeks to halt
execution of Indiana man
INDIANAPOLIS-The American Civil Liberties Union said it will file a
petition today seeking to halt the execution of Steven Judy, 24, condemned
killer of a mother and her three young children, in the electric chair.
The ACLU's action is contrary to the wishes of Judy, who has repeatedly
said he would prefer to die as scheduled next Monday rather than spend the
rest of his life behind bars.
The petition will seek to change the death penalty to a maximum term of
imprisonment, said an ACLU spokesperson.
' We just do not believe in capital punishment," said Henry Schwarzschild,
director of the ACLU's capital punishment project.
"The killings were horrible and appalling but that is precisely why we
don't think the state should be in the same kind of business," Schwarzschild

If the execution takes place, it will be the first electrocution in Indiana in
two decades and the fourth execution in the United States since 1977, when
Gary Gilmore, 36, was shot by a Utah firing squad.
