Approximately 800 angry Bursley,
Baits, and other North Campus residen-
ts trooped into the Bursley dormitory
cafeteria last night for a strategy
meeting to protest cutbacks in the Nor-
th Campus bus service hours.
"For days I've been dealing with
University bureaucracy," Bursley
Resident Advisor Jim Gold told his
Gold advised the students of the bus
service cutbacks and suggested several
courses of action, such as having paren-
ts call University officials, writing let-
ters, and signing petitions.
"I THINK THIS method will scare
the hell out of them (University ad-
ministrators) and we won't have to go
to harsher methods," he said.
"If we don't get action within a week,
I have no qualms about storming
them," Gold said.
Michigan Student Assembly
President Marc Breakstone also ap-
peared at the meeting to inform studen-
ts of MSA's support.
The University eliminated several
late night bus runs to North Campus for
financial reasons. Last year, the buses
operated every night until 2:15 a.m.,
but the latest runs now are 12:15 a.m.
Sunday through Thursday, 1 a.m.
Fridays, and 1:20 a.m. Saturdays.
The decision was based on recom-
mendations made to the University's
executive officers by the adhoc Ad-
visory Committee on Traffic and
Parking, the members of which in-
cluded Transportation Services
Manager John Ellsworth and Assistant
to the Vice President and Chief Finan-
cial Officer Harlan Mulder.
The administration attempted
similar cutbacks two years ago, but
agreed to continue the late bus service
following a study, co-sponsored by MSA
and the Uniyersity, which indicated
North Campus residents would ride the
buses at those late hours.

University President Allan Smith told
former MSA member Richard Pace the
minimum number of weekly riders
would have to be 825 to have the service
continued. But according to
Brinkerhoff, that figure has neyer been
In addition, Breakstbne pointed out
what he called the University's
"irresponsibility" in failing to involve
students in the decision-making.
"Over the summer, when no one was
around, they went ahead and did
research (to decide on bus service). But
there was no student input in the
process," he said in an interview before
the dorm meeting. "If the question is
money, if enough pressure is put on the
University, I think they (the Univer-
.sity) can come up with it. We (MSA)
will be in full support."

In his latest revision of the state's
recession-wracked budget, Gov.
William Milliken has recommended
that the University receive $151.3
million in state funds-more than $2
million above the figure on which the
University's current-year budget is
The latest proposal is 4.5 per cent-or
$6.5 million-more than what the
University received from the state last
The new budget figures will be
released today to legislative ap-
propriations panels, the committees
that hand out the money. The recom-
mendations are based on the latest in-
formation about the state's ailing
economy and were finalized late Wed-
The .University's 1980-81 budget,
which was approved by the Regents in
July, raises tuition 13 per cent, faculty
and staff salaries 9 per cent, and
assumes a 3 per cent increase in money
from the state.
The state budget, which is usually
approved in July, has been slow in
coming because 'of the rapidly
picture in Michigan. As unemployment
in the state climbs to record levels,
welfare and unemployment payments
rise, financially straining other areas,
such as higher education, that depend
on state appropriations.
University and state officials say the
1980-81 budget will either be approved

Nearly $10,000 of remodeling work in
the president's box at Michigan
Stadium was completed this week while
a $100,000 project to improve the
heating system in the president's house
The renovations coincide with similar
work being done at Michigan State
University in East Lansing, for which
MSU President Cecil Mackey has
drawn criticism in recent weeks.
NEW CARPETING and
wallcovering, theatre-style seats,
acoustical ceiling tiles, and a television
set to be linked to WUOM football
broadcasts were among the im-
provements made to University
President Harold Shapiro's stadium
Funding for the $10,000 project came
from interest earned on monetary gifts
to the University, University Vice
President and Chief Financial Officer
James Brinkerhoff said yesterday.
The president's box, which is often
used to entertain visiting dignitaries
and alumni, measures about 12 feet
square and was first used during the
1956-57 season. No renovation work has
been done on it until this year.

electrical systems in the president's
house, located on South University
Ave., are being renovated with $98,500

Beginning with this issue, The Daily is sporting a new look designed to make
the paper more pleasing to the eye and easier to read. But more important than
the cosmetic changes are the philosophical revisions that accompany them.
We have reassessed our news coverage priorities in an attempt to make The
Daily a publication more appealing to the diverse members of the University
community. Our primary goal has always been to offer readers what no other
publication can: Extensive daily coverage of University-related issues and
events. Our virtual monopoly standing in this regard makes the responsibility
even more important.
The results of our intensified commitment to this responsibility will be seen in
all sections of the paper throughout the year. Daily reporters will be scouring
the campus and the city for the stories behind the people and institutions that
make the University and Ann Arbor the exciting, vibrant, and often controver-
sial arenas that they are.
We also want to acknowledge more thoroughly and consistently the achiev-
ments of University students and faculty. Brief announcements of awards,
scholarships, and other accomplishments will be published regularly.
To maintain our complete coverage of the news of the day, our concise
regional, national, and international coverage will continue.
With your help, we can better determine what style of coverage is best for the
market we serve. By letter, call, or visit, let us know how we're doing. We're
anxious to listen.

latest copy of the
may have noticed a
difference in the
economic reasons. "President Shapiro asked all depar-
tments to look at where they could cut their budgets ... Our
office estimates that these and other changes will save us
about $20,000 a year," Hinz explained. A major change in
the department was the discontinuation of the U-M News, a
monthly University news publication received by all non-
instructional staff members. However, Hinz emphasized
stopping publication of the U-M News will not inconvenien-
ce faculty and staff members interested in the University
news. "We will be carrying many of the News' old features
in the Record, things like listing of promotions and retirees,
Work/Study and non-Work/Study. Students can review a
list of positions available both on-and off-campus in the
office. Non'-Work/Study positions are also listed on boards
located on the second floor of SAB and in the basement of
the Michigan Union. Also, the Office of Financial Aid will
hold the annual Work/Study Job Fair September 9 in the
Kuenzel Room of the Michigan Union from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Work/Study students must present their Financial Aid
Authorization to be admitted to the fair. D

ts out, "It will look terrific on a resume."
Johnny on the spot
Final arguments were held in Detroit yesterday in a
landmark court case involving Tonight Show host Johnny
Carson and a portable outhouse firm that Carson claims is
unfairly using his name. The dispute centers on a brand of
the outhouse, which is rented out to construciton com-
panies, carnivals, and the like, called "Here's Johnny."
