Dearborn students fight
to retain March break
( ) -"" (
By JAY McCORMICK
Students on the University's Dear-
born campus sent representatives with
petitions bearing 1,071 signatures to the
Regent's meeting yesterday to protest
the shift of Spring break on the
Spring break, which is usually
scheduled for the first week of March,
has been moved back to start on Feb. 22
next term on the Ann Arbor campus
Dearborn Chancellor William
Jenkins had requested that the break at
his campus be shifted to coincide with
the calendar at the Ann Arbor campus.
He told student government president
Saul Anuzis, Michigan Journal (Dear-
born's student newspaper) editor Bill
Rapai, and ski club president Scott
Cassey he will withdraw his letter,
thereby leaving Dearborn's Spring
break at the traditional March 2 spot on
JENKINS SAID HE had talked to
Aid needed to meet
faculty andthe deans of this school, and
they had all expressed a desire for the
shift to coincide with Ann Arbor's
break. "I made one mistake," Jenkins
said. "I didn't check with the students."
Jenkins added, "In withdrawing it
(the letter), others will be inconvenien-
ced," including faculty who have
spouses working on the Ann Arbor
campus, and students and faculty who
work and attend classes on both cam-
Rapai, the first of the student
representatives to air the grievance to
the Regents, said the earlier break
would inconvenience students who had
made advance plans, or who were
planning a trip to the South. "I'll see
you-in Fort Lauderdale," he said to the
Regents at the end of his presentation.
After Jenkins told him he would with-
draw the letter, Rapai said, "With the
break held that early, you might as well
call it Winter break."
Anuzis said this may be the first time
students from the Dearborn campus
have made presentations to the Regen-
ts, but it will not be the last.

Speaking on the latest appropriation
plan, Vice President Billy Frye told the
Regents yesterday, "It's not clear that
even those recommendations can fly
THE UNIVERSITY has tightened its
belt. "We are proceeding with con-
tingency planning based on a more
negative assumption," Frye said.
Plans for little or no increase in state
appropriations include a moratorium
on hiring and a freeze on equipment and
At the same time, Frye said, the ad-
ministration will begin to look at the
responses of schools, departments, and
other divisions of the University to his
request for proposed cuts in next year's
Frye said the responses of the in-
dividual units, which he described as
"quite thoughtful," will be used to
determine whether the hiring again,
and release the funds in equipment and
Once the University has its feet back
on the ground, Frye said, more
"rational" cuts, such as program
reductions, will be evaluated.

tributions from alumni and friends of
the University. According to Bay,
donations have been coming in for the

through the alumni magazine." ,
The Alumni Association started a
direct mail solicitation campaign 18
months ago. Contributions ranged from
$5 ( to more than $200,000 from one
