Gov' still considering


Michigan for nuke dump


COLUMBUS, Ohio (UPI) - The
federal government still considers
Michigan a potential site for a nuclear
waste dump despite a two-year-old,
legislative ban, says a top official of the
U.S. Department of Energy.

John Mountain of- the department's
office of nuclear waste isolation said a
freeze in relations between his agency
and Michigan officials is "beginning to
thaw," and scientists soon may resume
studies of the state's salt beds.


and state of Michigan are moving
toward a mutual agreement on the need
for a study," Mountain said at a nuclear
waste disposal conference Tuesday
night in Columbus.
The Michigan Legislature in 1978
adopted a resolution forbidding the in-
stallation of any nuclear waste disposal
operation in the state. Mountain said
that resolution has been under review
this year.
Last June, a draft report released by
Gov. William Milliken's Committee on
Nuclear Waste cited the state's "moral
responsibility" to aid in the search for a
disposal site and recommended the
legislature "reconsider" its ban.
Various bills under consideration in
Congress would allow the federal
government to overrule any state bans
like Michigan's anyway, Mountain

Band- reserves to miss Bowl

"but it would be nice to see all the foot-
ball players go, too. But there are rules
that we have to follow."
Verge Lubberden, this year's
manager of the Rose Bowl, said the
limits are placed because of physical
constraints within the stadium.
"There's only space on that field for 225
people per school," said Lubberden,
who is also the associate athletic direc-
tor at the University of Southern
California. "You'd have to see the
space and see what is available."
Money for the trip will be provided by
receipts from this year's Rose Bowl,
with a maximum of $72,600 according to
the contract. Additional profits from
the game are divided among all of the
schools in both athletic conferences.
THE BUDGET for this year's trip,
which is within the ceiling set by the
contract, was approved by University
Athletic Director Don Canham, An un-
disclosed amount of money was
allocated by Canham for the marching
band's 26 flag-bearers, but not for the
reserve rusicians. In response to
Canham's allocation, Becher had each,
of the band members write a letter of
appreciation to the athletic director.
For the marching band reserves, the
announcement that they would not ac-
company the others brought mixed
reactions-among them, confusion.
"First, you're disappointed," said
one reserve, who asked not to be iden-
tified, "you' also feel a little left out.
You've made friends on that band who

will be going without you. You also feel
a little embarrassed-they say "you're
not going with us" and you feel bad
about it."
marching band director now serving as
a music school professor, said that he
was able to bring reserves to Pasadena
during his tenure as band director
because of "generous" private con-
"We got that money from interested
people who knew the budget was not
enough," he said. During the five Rose
Bowl trips Cavender escorted the band
on, the reserves performed at the Tour-
nament of Roses Parade and other
events, but watched the game from the
Cavender attributed the holding back
of this year's reserves to rising travel
costs. "The basic villain in the whole
thing is this astronomical increase in
transportation costs, which are pricing
them (marching bands) right out of the
BECHER, however, refuted the
notion that financial considerations
were not dominant in the decision to
keep the reserves home. He said that
the contractual rules afforded no op-
tions. "It has nothing to do with the
music school, the athletic department,
or money," he said. "(It is) strictly
rules-there are limitations we have to
abide by. We could find the money, but
we have to follow the rules."
John Dewey, an associate director of
the Big Ten conference, said yesterday
that there is "no limit on the number
that the band takes or how many march
in the Tournament of Roses Parade.

"If he (Becher) wants to take 500 to
march in the parade, he can, but he has
to find the rest of the money himself."
The expenses provided by the 'Rose
Bowl Committee, Dewey said, are for
the 196 players only. .
Although confusion seems abundant
concerning these regulations, one fact
is clear: 19 of the 23 reserves will not
accompany their fellow musicians to
Pasadena. Some of these reserves have
complained that they were given the
impression at the beginning of the year
that they would be with the band
wherever its post-season activities took
"They never mentioned that anyone
might not be going," said the unnamed

band reserve. "After we beat Ohio
State, everyone was very excited,
saying 'California, here we come.' If
they knew at the beginning that we
weren't going, I wish they would have
told us; they'd really lose my respect.
But ifit came up recently, I could un-
derstand. Either way, I'm not planning
to disown the marching band or stop
going to concerts."
Becher denied misleading the reser-
ves, saying that he "made no
promises." When asked how the four
reserves who will go to Pasadena were
chosen, Becher said that "we pick the
best people-the decisions were based
strictly on quality."

ference administrative assistant, said
that the athletic director of the Big Ten
team which plays in the Rose Bowl is
required to submit a detailed budget for
the athletic department staff he intends
to send to the Bowl game. Jessup ex-
plained that the list of persons must be
approved at a Big Ten Conference
meeting: She added that the athletic
director is responsible for giving an
. "indication of the intended function of
each player."
Big Ten regulations specify that for
each team member, no more than one
souvenir or award, not to exceed $50,
shall be provided, Jessup explained.

She added that players are not allowed
more than $5 per day for incidental ex-
penses, and no more than $10 per day is
allowed for each of a maximum of 20
coaches and staff members.
University Athletic Director. in
Canham said he expects about 25
athletic staff.personnel who have been
assigned duties will-also make the 10-
day Rose Bowl trip. Appointed person-
nel also may bring their spouses and
any children under age 1 who still are
living at home.
Jessup said that the funding for the
Bowl game trips made by the official
party, the team party, and the athletic
department staff members will come
from the Rose Bowl game receipts.

CHICAGO (AP) - A wealthy Chicago
businessman and his wife who loved
cats have willed $1.5 million and shares
of Chicago Cubs baseball stock to 13
animal organizations from coast to
coast, a lawyer handling the estate said
Thomas Swaney, a Chicago attorney,
said Harry Curran Jr., who died a
year ago at age 67, and his wife, Mable,
who died in 1964 at age 66, left an estate
of $3 million.
"Both loved cats, and one in par-
ticular named Smoki, who they had for
years," said Swaney. "The couple was
childless, Half of the estate went to
relatives and the rest to the 13 animal
groups. None of the cats is living now."
SWANEY SAID the money and 97
shares of Cubs stock were pro-rationed
to the 13 organizations on a percentage
basis. How the percentage was derived4
by Curran was not known.
Two Chicago animal welfare
organizations - Lake Shore Foun-
dation for Animals and the Illinois
Citizens Animal Welfare League -
received the biggest bequests, each 15
percent of both the baseball shares and
the money, Swaney said.
