MSA offers many student services
ranging from low-cost insurance to
legal aid and acts as a liaison between
students and the administration. In ad-
dition, MSA controls $27,000 in funds
which it allocates to a number of
student groups.
Hoping to improve MSA's role as
student representatives, presidential
candidate Steve Roach and vice
presidential candidate Andrew
Zuckerman of the Joyride party said
they plan to put MSA power behind

student efforts to influence the Univer-
sity budget-cutting process.
Since the first cuts will be made in in-
dividual schools and colleges, Roach
said MSA should work to achieve a
louder student voice during that stage.
'Per student, minority
students have more coun-
seling than anyone on
campus. '
-Steve Roach
ROACH WAS critical of MSA's
allocation of funds to student groups,
proposing that students be required to
sign petitions proving a majority of the

currently an MSA concern, should not
be the responsibility of student gover-
nment, Roach said.
"Per student, minority students have
more counseling than anyone on cam-
pus," LSA junior Roach said, adding
that he believed separate counseling
services set up a segregated society by
"setting up boundaries."
SAYING THEY have "heard stories"
of students' displeasure with University
Health Service facilities, Roach and
Zuckerman said they also advocate
future investigation to "clean it up."
One service Roach would like to see
maintained, and expanded, is the of-
fering of educational clinics-such as
this year's self-defense classes-to im-
prove student awareness of campus
Roach would also like to see the Line,

THE PRESIDENTIAL candidates for this year's MSA elections are (clockwise,

Political Party; Jon Feiger, Peoples Action Coalition; and Steve Roach, Joyride.

Inflation up


jobless rate steady
From AP and UPI

WASHINGTON - Surging energy costs in the wake of
President Reagan's lifting of oil price controls and a new rise
in food prices pushed wholesale prices up 1.3 percent to an
annual rate of 16.2 in March the highest mark in eight mon-
ths, the government reported yesterday.
While national unemployment remained unchanged from
February, unemploymenft in the state fell one point last mon-
th to 13.2 percent - chiefly because of auto industry
callbacks. But, state officials were not ready to proclaim the
beginning of an economic upturn.
EVEN WITH THE improvement, Michigan's jobless rate
was the nation's highest - nearly six points over the national
Meanwhile, the national econ'omic statistics discouraged
President Reagan's top economic advisers at a time when
the administration is scoring substantial victories in
Congress in efforts to slash federal spending by more than
$47 billion in fiscal 1982.
The soaring energy prices in March, nearly twice !the 3.6
percent increase in February, accounted for the fifth straight
monthly advance in fuel costs.
INCLUDED WERE A 9 percent increase in heating oil
prices and a 7.5 percent rise in gasoline prices.
It was the highest gasoline price hike at the dealer level
since March 1980, when a price increase by the Organizagon
of Petroleum Exporting Countries was blamed for a
wholesale gasoline price increase of 8 percent.

"This upward movement reflected the impact of the lifting
of controls on the price of domestic crude oil earlier in the
year as well as the continued pass-through of the latest round
of imported oil price increases," the Bureau of Labor
Statistics said.
ED ROTHSCHILD, ,a; representative of the consumer
group Energy Action, declared that "It is clear the ad-
ministration's promise to do something about the nation's in-
flation rate is an empty one. Its policies to decontrol oil and
natural gas prices are wreaking havoc on industry and the
consumer alike. The only way to get control over inflation is
to get control over energy prices."
While the wholesale fuel inflation was generally expected,
the sudden increase in food prices was not. Finished fod
products ready for market went up 0.8 percent in March, af-
ter falling 0.6 percent the previous month. Fresh vegetables,
led by a tomato, potato and onion shortage, climbed 19.4 per-
cent in one month.
Murray Weidenbaum, chairman of the Council of
Economic Advisers, said the latest figures "underscore the
need for rapid action to turn around the economy because
quite clearly we are still suffering from double-digit in-
On Capitol Hill, William Cox, acting chief economist for
the Commerce Department, said there will be little expan-
sion in the economy through the rest of 1981.

Students join in a Memorial Service held on the Diag yesterday to com-
memorate Holocaust victims. Sponsored by Students Concerned About a
Reoccurrence, the Memorial is part of SCAR's efforts to warn students of
what they fear is a surge in the activities of anti-Semitic groups on campus.

Administration seeks
increased aid f or NATO

administration yesterday requested
$1.2 billion in foreign aid it said was
aimed primarily at strengthening
Turkey, Greece, Spain, and Portugal as
allies on NATO's southern flank.
The request, outlined by Assistant
Secretary of State Raymond Ewing
before the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee, is part of a $6.6 billion
economic and military aid package for
the 1982 fiscal year starting Oct. 1. The
proposal for southern Europe includes:
" $703.5 million for Turkey to help its
military government modernize
weapons systems and stabilize the
economy. Included are $400 million for

military credit sales, $300 million in
economic support loans and $3.5 million
for military training.
" $260 million in military credit sales for
Greece plus $1.9 million for military

training to improve the forces Greece
reintegrated last October into NATO.
" $159 million for Spain, which Ewing
said is "crucial to our own security

because of the access it gives us to im-
portant Spanish air and sea facilities."
"$82.2 million for Portugal to modernize
military forces and strengthen its
economy. The request includes $20
million in economic aid, $60 million for
military credit sales and $2.2 million for
military training.
" $7.5 million in economic support loans
for Cyprus, primiarly for relief and
rehabilitation of refugees.
Ewing said the administration plans
to provide $45.2 million in earthquake
disaster relief to Italy and has commit-
ted $600,000 in similar funds to Greece,
$20 million to Romania and $10 million
to Yugoslavia.
