THIS WEEK A T REGENTS
PIRGIM decision due

By BARRY WITT
University Regents are expected to
decide the fate of funding for the Public
Research Interest Group in Michigan at
this week's monthly meeting.
The issue to be decided is whether the
University will continue to allow
PIRGIM to use a voluntary system of
student assessment at CRISP or at
PIRGIM's request, use an automatic
refusable/refundable assessment for
all students.
PIRGIM IS EXPECTED to ask the
Regents to consider a proposal whereby
students would automatically be
charged the PIRGIM fee each term, but
could ask for a refund.
Currently the public interest group is
under contract with the University to
request students to voluntarily add $2 to
their term assessment by checking a
box on their Student Verification forms
at CRISP.
The University executive officers hav
recommended that the Regents con-
tinue this agreement through 1984.
ALSO AT THE March meeting, which
takes place Thursday and Friday, the

Regents will receive an update on the
University's Replacement Hospital
Project. Administrators will present
Regents with plans for the first stages
of site clearance for the project -
which is scheduled to begin Oct. 1.
Regents will also hear the annual
report on minority recruitment,
enrollment, retention, and graduation
- which includes for the first time
suggestions from deans, directors of
programs, and others on ways, the
University could increase its minority
enrollment. (See related story, Page 1.)
The Regents will hear a summary of
the University's 1981-82 budget plans
from Vice President for Academic Af-
fairs Bill Frye. In his report to the
Regents, Frye states, "The degree of
uncertainty surrounding several com-
ponent parts of the budget necessitates
a very tentative approach (to budget
planning) at this time."
RETRENCHMENT PLANS,
"critical to all future actions, since they
must be in place if the general fund is to
be in balance as of July 1," are
proceeding on schedule, Frye reports.

"The review process . . . has
facilitated both timely and fair con-
sideration of the reduction proposals,"
the vice president adds.
The report also warns the Regents
that both state and federal funding for
University programs stand on shaky
ground. The 12 percent increase in
general fund allocation from the state is
expected to be approved by mid-April,
but the actual amount the University
will receive depends on an economic
recovery in the state.
"IF THE (STATE) revenue
estimates prove overly optimistic ...
then the higher education appropriation
is vulnerable to subsequent reduction
through Executive order," Frye repor-
ts.

Lacking full confidence in the state's
ability to provide the proposed ap-
propriation, budget planning will con-
tinue on a contingency basis, according
to Frye.
Frye also noted the possibility of a
decrease in research support and
student financial aid programs from
the federal government subject to
congressional approval, but says he is
unsure how financial aid cuts will affect
enrollment.
The report also contains the first of-
ficial warning of impending tuition in-
creases to keep up with expenses.
"While we are reluctant to force this
burden upon our students . . . we may
have no alternative," Frye adds.

IMiliken forecasts
slow economic upturn

LANSING (UPI) - Gov. Milliken
said today Michigan's economy will
begin recovering this year from the
nightmare of 1980, although unem-
ployment will rise slightly and inflation
remain at double digit levels.
The governor, in his annual forecast,
also stressed Michigan's economic
recovery is dependent on national
developments, including a substantial
federal tax cut and reduced interest
rates.
"I AM OPTIMISTIC that there will be
significant improvement in the second
half of 1981, paving the way for a
relatively strong economic performan-
ce in 1982," Milliken said.
"By many standards, 1980 was the
worst year for the Michigan economy
since the Great Depression; as in-
flation, high interest rates and in-
creasing competition in the automobile
industry combined to severely depress
economic activity," he said.
Real personal income in Michigan
fell 9.1 percent in 1980 - the largest,
decline since the 1930s - with wages
and salaries showing the smallest
growth in 20 years, the administration
reported.
AVERAGE unemployment was a
record 534,000 persons, with all-
important motor vehicle production
falling 38.7 percent.
Inflation raced ahead at 38.7 percent,
up from 12.7 percent in 1979 - the
largest year-to-year gain since 1920.
Consumer spending, adjusted 'for in-
flation, fell 14.5 percent.
Milliken predicted employment in
Michigan will rise 1.2 percent, but will
be more than offset by an increase in
job seekers, resulting in an unem-

ployment rate of 12.7 percent for the
year - up from 12.4 percent for 1980.
A 10.8 percent increase in personal
incsome will be wiped out by a slower in-
flation rate of 11.7 percent, resulting in
a .8 percent decline in real earnings -
an improvement over 1980. Real retail
sales also are expected to fall, although
by a fraction of last year's rate.
The administration predicted total
Michigan auto production for the year
to hit 2.7 million units, an increase of 25
percent linked to an expected im-
provement in national sales. Significan-
tly - for a state once associated with
large gas guzzlers - nearly half of the
cars produced in Michigan this year
will be compacts or subcompacts, the
administration said.
