Another look at the University's rather
bleak financial picture dominated discussion
at yesterday's Regents meeting, as the
University's governing board heard the
reasoning behind the proposed 16 percent to
19 percent tuition hike.
Vice President for Academic Affairs Bill
rye said while tuition for each school and
ollege may vary somewhat, the average in-
crease will most probably fall in the 16 per-
cent to 19 percent average.
The need to maintain a competitive salary
program for the University's faculty in ad-
dition to the state's inability to meet all of
higher education's financial needs
necessitates such an increase, Frye said.
The lack of an adequate salary program
would "Threaten to contribute to the loss of
some of our distinguished faculty," he said.
Frye said more budget reductions at this
time would be "extraordinarily destructive to
the University," but added further retrench-
mpent will likely be inevitable.
"An underlying fundamental objective" of
keeping the University among the top five in
the country prevents the University from
trimming its budget too much, Frye said.

WASHINGTON (AP)-The Interior Department an-
nounced yesterday it intends to speed up offshore oil.
leases on four sites off the Alaskan coast that it views as
having high potential.
The announcement brought an immediate complaint
from one environmental group, but Interior Secretary
James Watt said "stringent environmental safeguards"
will be imposed in the leases.
The announcement of the five-year program added
details to a joint statement last week by Watt and Energy
Secretary James Edwards calling for faster leasing of of-
fshore oil sites to help end dependence on foreign oil.
THE NEW SCHEDULE calls for 42 leases in 1982-86, an
increase of six over the most recent plan for a five-year,
In addition to the Alaska changes, the plan calls for
adding one lease off the coast of California and dropping
five in the Gulf of Mexico. No decision has been made on
offering four more leases off northern California, which
are opposed by Gov. Edmund Brown.
The new schedule increases by one the leases in 1982 and
1984 and calls for nine sales in 1986, which were not in-
cluded in the previous five-year plan.
CATHY SMITH of the Friends of the Earth said the
faster pace did not allow adequate time for environmental
assessment of the sensitive Alaskan areas.
"Alaska is the area where the least is known," she said,
adding that present technology is not adequate to judge
the effect of drilling on deep-water and ice-impacted
Ms. Smith said one lease would be in an area near
Unimak Pass, which she called a major area for salmon

Economics background will aid new dean
By SUE INGLIS
Newly named LSA Dean Peter Steiner, an
economics and law professor, said in an interview
yesterday he doesn't think it's an accident that the
college has asked an economist to be dean.
"I don't think it's an accident that the president of
the University is an economist," Steiner added,
referring to Economics Prof. and University
President Harold Shapiro.
STEINER, 58, SAID his background in economics,
30 years of teaching experience in large universities
and his ability as a "good listener" will be effective
tools during his five-year term as LSA dean which
Wegins July 1.
"I understand this kind of university," Steiner
"The University can no longer say 'Let's all hold
our breath and tighten our belts a notch and it will
go away,' " he added, citing the University's
current budget troubles.
Steiner, economics department chairman from
1971 to 1974, will serve as dean to more than 16,000
students and 850 faculty members.
THE LSA DEAN IS ONE of the most influential
administrators in the University. - The individual
who holds the position takes responsibility for mat-
ters of curriculum, hires and fires faculty mem-
bers, works with department chairpersons and
directs the college's budget.
The official announcement of Steiner's appoin-
trient came yesterday morning during a special
LSA faculty meeting called by Vice President for
Academic Affairs Bill Frye. The Regents are expec-
ted to give final approval to the new dean today.
Frye told the faculty Steiner's "understanding of
and commitment ot the college's participatory role
of governance, courage to make tough decisions,
high standards of excellence, and very pleasant
forcefulness of his personality" make him an ex-
cellent choice for dean.

These students are helping others and
getting credit for it through Project
Outreach, Psychology 201.
OUTREACH OFFERS STUDENTS a
chance to link their academic
knowledge with experience in the field,
explore different career fields and get
on-the-job training, according to Ad-
ministrative Director Georgie Ferris.
She stressed that while Outreach
benefits the community, its main pur-
pose is to teach students.
Senior psychology major Jackie
Pearlman says she benefits from being
able to use her research-oriented
background to watch how theories work
in the Ypsilanti Psychiatric Hospital
Forensics Center. Pearlman says most
of the patients at the maximum-
security Center are eager to talk with
someone and play cards or pool.
LSA sophomore Debbie Peckham,
student coordinator in the Forensics
Psychology program, says some
students have trouble at first adjusting
to the mental patients, most of whom
have been accused of committing
felonies-robbery, rape, or murder.
Peckham says the patients sometimes
verbally "test" or even try to scare the
students, to see how they react.
PEARLMAN SPENDS FOUR hours
or more each week doing "field work"
at the Forensics Center. Each Outreach
student, in addition to completing the
field work requirement, must also at-
tend weekly group discussions and lec-
tures. The Outreach course is divided
into nine project areas, with various
field work settings in each area.
Dale Horowski, a junior psychology
major and student coordinator of Tran-
sition, one of the settings in the Mental
Health project area, says students
learn t"practical things about
psychology-how a hospital runs, drug
use for patients-all the cold, hard

And speaking of pigs...
Carroll Barnard, a farmer in Amelia, Va., says his pig
farm may not smell like a bed of roses, but he thinks a
recent court decision against him stinks. He was ordered by
Amelia County Circuit Judge Thomas Warren to pay $1,500
in damages to three neighbors who charged that odors and
flies from Barnard's 137-acre farm were a nuisance. Bar-
nard maintained the only time his pig operation smells is
when the manure is taken from the pens-which have con-
crete floors-and buried in a nearby field. "With the

walk, each player places a hand between his legs so the
person behind can hold on. "We felt this was not consistent
with practices at Notre Dame," Roemer added. The dean
said he met with each of the 30 players involved and told
them if they ever paraded in the nude again they would be
dismissed from school. Roemer said he would consider
