Poet Czeslaw Milosz, recipient of an honorary doctorate
from the University of Michigan, won the 1980 Nobel Prize for i
Milosz, 69, is the ninth American-and the third writer in
Polish-to win the prestigious literature prize.
MILOSZ was awarded a Doctor of Letters degree here in the
spring of 1977. He has spoken in Ann Arbor several times, and
a 400-page compendium of Milosz's poetry-the only complete
anthology of-his poety-in print-was published by the UniverT1
sity Department of Slavic Languages and Literatures in 1976.
Milosz will come to Ann Arbor in January in connection
with the East European Festival of Arts and the Humanities,
sponsored by the Center for Russian and East European
' Born in the Lithuanian village of Vilna, which became
part of Poland in 1923 and later became part of the Soviet
Union, Milosz emigrated to the West in 1951 and has been a
director of the education division of the
state budget office.

The administration will present a
plan that outlines how the University
will cope under the new, unexpected
reduction in state funds at next week's
Regents meeting, University President
Harold Shapiro said yesterday.
. . (IF) THE GOVERNOR'S
recommendation were to be enacted by
the legislature, that would represent a
more severe budgetary outlook for the
University than we had anticipated in
our worst case' presentation to the
\Regents in July," Shapiro said.
The "worst case" budget plan in-
cludes an allocation of $144 million in
state funds for fiscal year 1981-the
same amount as the University
received in fiscal year 1980. The
University's fiscal year ends in July.
Freezes on hiring, and maintenance
and equipment accounts are in affect
under the "worst case" plan.
ADDITIONAL CUTS WILL have to
be mde if the governor's recommen-
dation is approved by the state
legislature. University officials have
said that such drastic cuts would not
allow the University to maintain the
number and quality of programs.
"It is clear that the financial accom-
modation that is required (under
Milliken's latest recommendation) will

MILOSZ'S POETRY HAS not been published in Poland
' In announcing the $215,000 award, the Swedish Academy
said "the world that Milosz depicts in his poetry and prose
works and essays is the world in which man lives after
having been driven out of paradise.",
A reading of Milosz's poetry in Polish and in English tran-
slation is. scheduled for Thursday, Oct. 23, in the Rackham
Amphitheater at 8 p:m. Both the poetry reading and, the lec-
tures by Milosz in January werle scheduled before the an-
nouncement was made that Milosz had won the Nobel prize.
"PEOPLE LIVED IN close contact with still primitive
nature. This country and this culture, and most of its people,
no longer exist," the academy said of Milosz's homeland.

SPITZBERG ALSO said faculty
layoffs and a dramatic increase in class
sizes could result if Proposal D is ap-
proved. This will result in a drop in
teaching quality, he added.
University President Harold Shapiro,
reached later yesterday, said if the
head lam basts
proposal is adopted, doubling or
tripling tuition rates for in-state studen-
ts is one remedy that may be con-
sidered. But if out-of-state tuition is in-
creased at that rate, he explained, it
would be impossible for many out-of-
staters to attend the University.
"It's still too early to say what we're
going to do," Shapiro said.
SHAPIRO NOTED tuition provides
$70 million to the University's $230
million general fund. Proposal D would
result in a $80 to $120 million decrease
in state allocations to the University,
thereby reducing the. University
general fund considerably.
"Revenue could be raised by in-
creasing tuition," he explained, but we
may also have to consider dropping
enrollment by 50 percent, which would
reduce our expenditures and allow us to
continue with a smaller budget."

THE MAIN THRUST of the cam-

"Ronald Reagan is putting out an
illusion of dreams. Carter has to ex-

Carter volunteers want to stress
Reagan's viewpoints on ERA, abor-

the Supreme Court. "Not many
people know that the next president
will likely appoint at least five
justices to the high court. The
Supreme Court has always been the
guardian of individual rights. With
Reagan appointing a majority of
justices those rights are in jeopar-

Those hospital scrub suits may not look terribly elegant,
but to some people, -they're all the rage. Around campus,
for instance, the green clothes make comfortable study

of the drawbacks of high fashion. The suits don't cost the
wearer much either. Thefts of the suits by hospital em-
ployees have been rising at various locations around the
country. The thefts have reached such epidemic propor-
