Conmittee says ax Extension
(Continued from P'age 1)

fectively by separate schools and
colleges,
"NEITHER A 90 percent reduction in
the General Fund budget of the Exten-
sion Service nor the outright
elimination of this unit need have a
serious impact on either on-campus or
off-campus credit instruction," the
report states, citing support from a
majority of the University's deans for
this opinion.
"Most academic units indicated that
they would be prepared to continue off
campus credit offerings should the Ex-
tension Service be eliminated," the
report adds.
It argues that locating the respon-
sibility for off-campus instruction
within the Extension Service "runs the
risk of isolating these programs from

the academic mainstream of the
University."
THE REPORT ALSO states that
many Extension Service programs
"are in direct competition with Univer-
sity programs offered on the Ann Ar-
bor, Flint, and Dearborn campuses."
And other off-campus offerings
"duplicate programs offered by other
state institutions."
Quality control is also a problem with
the Extension Service, the report
states. The committee argues "many
studentsenrolled in Extension courses
are not capable of achieving the level of
academic achievement of on-campus
students."
The committee also says the Exten-
sion Service lacks in the "expertise
(and) experience" to effectively ad-

minister courses for the professional
schools.
ALTHOUGH THE DECISION to
eliminate the Extension Service is not
yet final, Russell Bidlack, School of
Library Science dean, speculated his
school would make an effort to provide
off-campus courses on its own.
"As a professional school, activity
out of Ann Arbor is essential," Bidlack
said.
The impact of such a switch could af-
fect 10 percent to 15 percent of the
school's budget, the dean said. But
because his is such a small school, the
cost would only be about $20,000 per
year.
HE SAID HE WOULD likely make an
appeal for additions to the school's

budget to make up the difference.
Courses for the School of Education,
however, represent a substantial por-
tion of Extension Service offerings.
Discontinuance of the service "would
have a major effect on our program,"
Dean Joan Stark said.
Should the service be discontinued,
the subcommittee's chairman said he
was unsure whether all the schools in-
volved would be able to assume support
for the programs.
"Some units could charge a tuition to
pay (for their offerings) themselves,"
said James Duderstadt, professor of
nuclear engineering. But certain others
programs may have to be eliminated if
the University decided they no longer
deserve funding, he said.

Haig denies rumors
that he will resign

WASHINGTON (AP)-Alexander
Haig declared yesterday "the obituary
is wrong" as to his tenure as secretary
of state, and he and President Reagan
remain of one mind on foreign policy
despite their dispute over George
Bush's crisis management role.
A night earlier, Haig's aides-who
asked not to be identified-portrayed
him as "very upset and sulking" and
said they were unsure whether the
strong-willed secretary would stay on
the job despite Reagan's affirmation of
faith in him Wednesday. One noted that

Haig had "pounded the table" in anger
over the Bush appointment.
HAIG DENIED that he had
threatened Reagan with resignation,
but sidestepped questions from repor-
ters as to his future. Instead, he joked
that "somebody told me I looked
'Bushed' this morning, but I'm not sure
what he meant," when he was asked
about the possibility of stepping down.
"I had lengthy discussions with the
president and we are of one mind,"
Haig said. "Foreign policy is first and
foremost a question of substance."

IN BRIEF
Complied from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
Teacher must reveal student
reporter's name, court says
BRIDGETON, N.J. - A teacher must tell a grand jury the name of a high
school reporter who interviewed a drug pusher known as the "Candy Man"
for the student newspaper, unless authorities can learn his identity them-
selves within a week, a judge ruled yesterday.
Superior Court Judge Philip Gruccio found a Millville High School
newspaper and a student reporter do not have the same rights to protect con-
fidential sources as professional reporters.
But Gruccio, seeking "less obtrusive ways" to apprehend the "Candy
Man," ordered Cumberland County authorities and school officials to first
seek out the pusher before the teacher must return to face the grand jury
next Thursday.
Jack Lee, 60, an English teacher for 24 years and adviser to the school
newspaper Tattler, said he will go to jail rather than reveal the reporter's
name.
"I'm not protecting the pusher," Lee said. "The interviewer does not do
drugs. He's under tremendous pressure. He felt proud he was doing
something for me. He trusted me."
UMW pushes new contract
United Mine Workers President Sam Church launched a whirlwind tour of
the Eastern coalfields yesterday to sell miners on a contract agreement as
160,000 UMW members prepared to strike at midnight.
In Ohio, 25 miners jumped the gun and walked out to protest terms of the
proposal.
The union's current contract was to expire at 12:01 a.m. EST today
making at least a short strike inevitable. Union members vote on the con-
tract Tuesday and Church was banking on his ability to sell the proposal to
the rank and file to keep the walkout brief.
Rank-and-file miners are to vote on the contract Tuesday at union halls
throughout the soft-coal fields.
In Canonsburg, Pa., Church spoke to a shift change at Consolidation Coal
Co.'s Mathies mine and predicted the strike would be over in a week.
House passes first of
Reagan budget cuts
WASHINGTON - The House yesterday swiftly passed the first of
President Reagan's budget cuts - a bill to skip an April 1 increase in the
price support level for milk.
Approval was by voice vote, sparing individual members from going on
record for or against the politically powerful dairy industry.
After more than a week of delays, the Senate Wednesday voted 88-5 in
favor of the bill.
The administration claims the bill will save taxpayers $147 million in the
cost of the program by which the government buys enough butter, cheese
and non-fat dry milk to keep the price of fresh milk above the support level.
Reagan won't compromise
on 30%, 3 year tax cut
WASHINGTON - President Reagan is in no mood to compromise on his 30
percent three-year tax cut legislation and will fight for it on Capitol Hill
where it faces Democratic opposition, officials said yesterday.
After meeting with Reagan, Rep. Barber Conable (R-N.Y.) told reporters:
"The president is quite anxious to fight for his program. The administration
is not in a compromising mood at this point."
Conable, the ranking Republican on the tax-writing Ways and Means
Committee, was summoned to the White House to discuss committee chair-
man Dan Rostenkowski's prediction the Reagan tax cut plan will never pass
the House.
3 'junkies' suspect in murder
MOBILE, Ala. - Police holding three white men described by authorities
as "junkie types fired up on drugs" said yesterday there was no evidence
that the murder of a young black man found hanging from a camphor tree
was racially motivated.
Police were trying to determine why the victim, Michael Donald, a 19-
year-old technical school student and part-time employee in a newspaper
mailroom, was killed.
Authoritites said at least two of the three suspects, who were arrested
Wednesday morning, were known drug users. All are life-long residents of
Mobile.
State Sen. Michael Figures, a black leader called to the scene when
Donald's body was found hanging from a tree in a racially-mixed residential

neighborhood Saturday morning, called for calm yesterday.
The slaying, he said, has created "the most volatile situation that has ever
come to Mobile."
