Can ham dampens

'M' Band fund hopes

By BETH ROSENBERG
University Athletic Director Don Canham
said yesterday his department would not
allocate additional funds needed by the Mar-
ching Band for travel to away football games.
The decision puts a damper on the band's hope
that it will somehow be able to scrape together
enough money to travel to the Notre Dame, Ohio
State, and other away games.
Canham charged that an article that appeared
in a local newspaper last summer was used to
pressure him for more funding.
'/Someone planted a story in the Ann Arbor
News to pressure us," Canham said. "We don't
pressure easily." .
THE ATHLETIC Department gave the mar-
ching band $15,000 this year for travel to the Ohio

'We don't pressure easily,' he says

State game-a $5,000 increase over last year, ac-.
cording to Canham.
In an interview last week, Music School
Associate Dean Paul Lehman said the allocation
was "not enough to take the band to any of the
games."
The band is in trouble this year because
private donors have failed to contribute as
much as in past years. The reduction that some
say is caused by the recession has forced the
band to search for additional money from other
sources.
EACH YEAR the athletic department gives

the band money toward expenses to either the
Ohio State or Michigan State away game. Last
year, ,'Canham said, the band received
$70,000-$50,000 for travel to the Gator Bowl and
$20,000 for the Purdue and Michigan State
games.
Canham said he has had no recent contact with
the Music School and "I don't intend to."
Music School Dean Paul Boylan was
unavailable for comment yesterday, but Leh-
man said no verdict has been reached on travel
to South Bend and Columbus. He said he was not
aware of Canham's funding decision.

Former Michigan Marching Band Conductor
Glenn Richter said in a telephone interview
yesterday from Austin, Tex., that the issue is not
the amount of money needed by the band, but
whoshould supply it.
"THE GREATEST PROBLEM now is lots of
buck-passing over who's responsible," Richter
explained. "I'm just speculating, but I'm sure
Canham thinks he has given enough money. It's
a hot potato situation and the band is caught
without any money."
Richter, the new director of bands at the
University of Texas, said one of his con-

siderations for leaving the University last sum-
mer was lack of band f nding.
"There was a pretty bleak picture," he said.
"You can't have a program survive in its ex-
cellent tradition and maintain it without proper
funding. I didn't see any solution from Canham
and didn't have any hope."
CANHAM LONG HAS taken the view that the
athletic department is not responsible for fun-
ding the band. "It's not our problem," he said.
"We raised $400,000 to $500,000 last year. They
have to raise their own money."
The athletic department, Canham maintained,
cannot and should not give the band money for
every away game. If the band decides not to go
to Columbus on November 22, Canham said,

debate;

Carter reluctant

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON-The League of
Women Voters yesterday voted
unanimously to invite John Anderson to
its presidential debates, but President
Carter immediately refused to par-
ticipate in a three-way session.
The decision by the board gave An-

derson a significant victory. But Car-
ter's dedision to "respectfully decline"
left the fate of the Sept. 21 debate in
Baltimore up in the air.
Robert Strauss, Carter's campaign
chairman, said the president is
prepared "to debate any and all can-
didates." But Strauss said Carter was
insisting on an opening debate that
would be limited to himself and Ronald
Reagan, his GOP rival.
STRAUSS SAID Reagan had been of-
fered at least three other opportunities
for two-man debates with Carter and
had refused each of them. He said
agreeing to the League's three-man
format would preclude any chance for a
head-on debate between Carter and
Reagan.
Ruth Hinerfeld, who heads the
League's Education Fund, said late
yesterday the organization was
prepared to go ahead with the initial
debate-with or without Carter.
Strauss told a news conference "the
president is prepared to debate any and
all candidates that Governor Reagan or
the League of Women Voters can

suggest if Governor Reagan will first
meet the president in a one-on-one
debate.
"SINCE GOVERNOR Reagan and
the League of Women Voters has
refused to even discuss the scheduling
of a one-on-one debate, we are convin-
ced that acceptance of this invitation
would preclude any chance of such a
one-on-one debate, and therefore, we
must respectfully decline," the cam-
paign chairman said.
White House Press Secretary Jody
Powell said the Carter camp was told
by the League that "even at a later
date" they would not be prepared to
sponsor a Carter-Reagan debate.
"It confirmed our worst suspicions,"
Powell said, adding "we'll just have to
wait and see" about the possible
political impact.
POWELL SAID he still believes
something will be worked out before
Nov. 4 and "we'll end up with debates."
Carter previously had shown great
reluctance to debate Anderson and
Reagan together on grounds it would
mean climbing into the ring with two
Republicans.
Anderson immediately accepted the
League's invitation, and Reagan, cam-
paigning in Chicago, said "I'm going to
be there." He said he would debate An-
derson alone if Carter declines the
debate invitation.
CARTER HAD renewed the doubt
over chances of a three-way debate
when he said earlier yesterday that An-
derson "is primarily a creation of the
press" who has never won a primary
even in his own home state.

RENOVATION IS BEING completed on the front steps of the Union and the rest
of the building may also experience a facelift. A renovation plan was approved
by the University's executive officers yesterday and is expected to get the nod
from the Regents next week.
Union renovations
cear another hurdle

Late hours at,
UGLI restored

By JULIE SELBST
A long-awaited facelift for the
Michigan Union is one step closer
today as the University's executive
officers approved a plan for im-
provements to the building at a
meeting yesterday.
University President Harold
Shapiro and the five vice presidents
agreed to send to the Regents a
detailed program statement that
outlines proposed improvements to
the Union. At their meeting next
week, the Regents are expected to
give their approval to the plan, at
which time architect interviews and
a feasibility study will be initiated.
THE APPROVED statement lists
six items as the most important
elements of the renovation project.
They are: a student-oriented food
service, a bookstore, programming
space, multi-purpose rooms,
lounges, and a commercial concour-
se.

According to the statement, the
ground floor of the Union is to be
transformed from its current "tun-
nel-like atmosphere... (to) an open-
shop marketplace which is friendly
and inviting."
Approval of the program
statement does not necessarily
mean all changes to the Union
suggested in the document will ac-
tually take place. The architectural
firm performing the feasibility
study will advise on the prac-
ticability of items in the statement.
EXPLAINED UNION Director
Frank Cianciola: "We're asking for
permission to interview the ar-
chitects for a feasibility study right
now. Hopefully it will be someone
with experience in renovation,
someone with experience in ' food
services and student centers and
student oriented facilities. We also
want an organization that works

No decision reached
on North Campus
bus hours extension

The University's executive officers
yesterday reached no immediate
decision on extending the hours of the
North Campus bus system.
But, according to Vice President and
Chief Financial Officer James
Brinkerhoff, the transportation depar-
tment is studying the problem and will
report to him by 8 a.m. today.
"It (the bus situation) is a very sim-
ple question, but it takes the research of
those who have the data down in tran-
sportation," he said.

president would have no comment until
today.
On Monday, 13 North Campus
residents met with Shapiro to propose a
single North Campus "loop" bus that
would run from Central Campus to
Bursley, Baits, and Northwood Apar-
tments between midnight and 2 a.m.
Sunday through Thursday.
The proposal also called for Friday
and Saturday bus service similar to
that of last year.
Earlier this summer, the University
cut back the North Campus bus service
hours, citing low ridership and in-
creased costs. But protests raised by
many of the residents brought the issue
to the administration's attention.

In response to several student com-
plaints, the head of the Undergraduate
Library decided yesterday to restore
the UGLI's traditional 2 a.m. closing
time Sunday ,through Thursday nights
starting September 28.
Head Librarian Rose-Grace Faucher
had originally moved up the closing
hour to midnight in an effort to save
money because the library's budget is
especially tight this fall.
SEVERAL STUDENTS, however,
complained on the library's suggestion
board about the shortened hours, and
many protested the cuts to Michigan
Student Assembly President Marc
Breakstone.
"I was outraged (about the cuts),"
said Breakstone. On Monday,
Breakstone said he called Faucher and
asked about why the cuts had been
made.
"I told her that if students were sur-
veyed there might be another set of
hours students would prefer to be cut,"
he said. "I also told her we would un-
dertake an intense effort (to restore the
late night hours.)"
YESTERDAY, FAUCHER said she
re-evaluated her decision in light of
Breakstone's call, student complaints
and an article in yesterday's Daily
about the library cuts.

"The feeling is that students need a
place to study late," Faucher said.
Although, she had estimated Monday
that approximately 50 students used the
library each night from 12 to 1 a.m. and
fewer from 1 a.m. to 2 a.m., she said
yesterday that her records show an
average of 166 students studying in the
library at 12:30 a~m.
Faucher said she ,did not know how
the library would absorb the 'cost of
restoring' the closing time until mid-
night. The Undergraduate Library was
told to cut 5,000 part time service hours
this year, she said, and closing two
hours earlier would have saved 722 part
time hours.
A DAILY SAMPLING of students
studying at the UGLI showed that while
many did not realize the hours had been
cut, they were pleased to have the late
night hours restored.
"I like the opportunity to study (past
midnight)," said Law student Mike
Hainer. He said while he personally
wouldn't study much past midnight at
the UGLI, he though many law students
would take advantage of the extra
hours.
The move back to the old hours will
begin Sept. 28. The library will be open
8 a.m.-2 a.i. Monday through Thur-
sday, 8 a.m.-midnight Friday, 10 a.m.-
midnight Saturday, and noon-2 a.m.
Sunday.
