ECONOMIC WOES PLAGUE STATE BUDGET PLANS
Lawmakers face fiscal policy difficulties

LANSING (UPI) -Unexpected bad economic.
news at a time when the state's fiscal future was'
supposed to be looking.up will make it harder for'
lawmakers to-.pass a 1980-81 budget next month,
state Budget Director Gerald Miller said yester-
day.
Political and economic problems forced
lawmakers last month to abandon plans to pass a
id, 12-month spending plan in favor of the 90-
day budget.
It was hoped that the state's shaky fiscal
future would be settled by the time lawmakers
return after next month's election. But Miller
said that will not be the case.
"THE PROBLEM in November will be much

more serious than in September," Miller said.
While state officials thought Michigan's
recession had hit bottom, September figures
showed an unexpected three percent drop in in-
come tax receipts. Collections were up two per-
cent in August.
"We thought September would be better than
August. This is not a good sign," Miller said. He
noted that sales tax receipts are slightly better.
TAX COLLECTION figures are one indication
of the state's economic climate. A drop in those
figures was one factor prompting Gov. William
Milliken's $97 million budget-cutting executive
order last spring.
Miller-who has long predicted an upturn in
the third quarter of 1980-said it is too soon to tell

whether the September figures are the start of a
trend or are just a fluke,
To compound the problem, Miller said a
package of "revenue augmentation" measures
backed by Gov. William Milliken will not raise
the money needed to make up the $165 million
budget shortfall.
MILLIKEN HOPED to raise $100 million
through an increase in the cigarette tax and
levies on capital gains and military pay, with the
rest of the deficit covered by spending cuts.
But the capital gains tax is now dead because
income tax forms have already been printed,
and the other levies will raise only $70 million,
Miller said. The only idditional option is a com-
plicated $50 million liquor deregulation bill

strongly opposed by the industry and many
legislators.
It none of the bills' are approved by the
legislature, the budget director said the spending
plan may have to be sliced from $4.68 billion to
$4.57 billion.
MEANWHILE, THE state Department of
Social Services continues to have severe
problems under the interim budget. Miller said
the Medicaid program' will run out of money
Nov.26.
However, he said funding for the state Depar-
tment of Corrections and state police will last un-
til the end of the year and will not run out as -
predicted earlier.

Actress'son s,'hoots himself'

HOLLYWOOD (UPI)-Mary Tyler
Moore's 24-year-old son killed himself
with a shotgun blast to the head early
yeterday at the home he shared with
tWQ young women near the University.
of Southern California campus. Police
were trying to determine if the death
was suicide or an accident.
' ichard Meeker, son of the television
std by her first marriage, was repor-
tedly "playing with a sawed-off
shotgun" after talking on the telephone

with a girlfriend in Fresno, Calif. ,
ONE OF MEEKER'S two room-
mates, Judy Vasquez, 21, a student at
California State University, Los
Angeles, said Meeker was "loading and
unloading" the gun when it discharged.
Meeker was taken to Western Park
Hospital where he was pronounced
dead 20 minutes later.
The coroner's office said results of an.
autopsy would not be immediately
released.

By coincidence Moore plays the
mother of a son with suicidal tendencies
in her latest movie, "Ordinary People."
Two years ago, Moore's 21-year-old
sister, Elizabeth Ann, died of un-
specified causes. She had superficial
slash marks on her wrists and prescrip-
tion drugs were nearby when her body
was found.
MEEKER WAS AN employee of CBS-
TV. Vasquez was with him when the in-

cident occurred. The other roommate,
Janet McLaughlin, 23, a student at
USC, was in another room of the house.
Police reached television producer
Grant Tinker, Moore's estranged
husband, who in turn notified Moore
in New York City. He said she returned
to Los Angeles immediately.
He said the news of the shooting "ab-
solutely destroyed her."

yM ILWAUKEE--John Anderson,
losing ground to the polls, has given up
weeks of fruitless efforts to borrow $18
million ,from banks for an intensive,,
campaign-end television advertising
blitz. Instead, he'll borrow a fraction of
that from*individual supporters.
On a day of generally bad news for his
independent presidential campaign,
Anderson, who campaigned here and in
Seattle, learned yesterday that he
dropped from 15 percent to 8 percent
nationwide in the Gallup Poll.
The survey has Republican Ronald
Iran clai

positions of the Iraqis trying to
;penetrate Abadan. "One Iraqi MiG was
downed in a dogfight with an Iranian,
plane and its pilot was killed."
Iraq told the United Nations Security
Council. yesterday ,that Iran provoked
the Persian Gulf war. Iran said Prime
Minister Mohammad Ali Rajai would
eome to New York to present his coun-
try's case to thecouncil.
At a brief council meeting on the 24-
day-old war between the two Moslem
neighbors, Foreign Minister Saddoun

Reagan with 45 percent and President
Carter with 42. In mid-September, the
Gallup Poll had Reagan at 41,percent,
Carter at 37 and Anderson at 15.
THE POSSIBILITY of a Carter-
Reagan debate, once thought dead for
the year, was reborn yesterday when
the League of Women Voters said An-
derson's qualifications will be
reassessed this week. The league from
the start has insisted Anderson must
have 15 percent of more in the polls to
qualify.r
Although Anderson was unable to
persuade a number of banks in New

York and Uicago to lend him funds,
campaign manager Michael MacLeod
said a drive for loans from individuals
had netted more than $1 million in 11
days. He said another $1.5 million to $2
million is expected before the Nov. 4
election.
Carter and Republican presidential
nominee Reagan each get $29.4 million
in public funding to run their own cam-
paigns just because they are nominees
of the two major political parties. In
addition, the Democratic and
Republican parties are permitted to
raise and spend a maximum of $4.6

million each for campaign purposes.
IN PENNSYLVANIA yesterday, Car-
ter depicted Reagan as a foe of social
programs, the minimum wage and
medical care for the aged. "Those of
you who are interested in the Social
Security system should be deeply con-
cerned about the four different times
when my opponent has called for a
voluntary system.. .," Carter said. The
president said that would destroy Social
Security.
He also said that Reagan began his
political career campaigning against
Medicare.

ims victory in air attack on Iraq

Hammadi said Iran incited the conflict
by attempting to export its Islamic
revolution and destablize the Persian
Gulf region.
IRANIAN SPECIAL envoy Ali Shams
Ardakani asked the council to postpone
further deliberations until Rajai
arrives. The council adjourned until
Friday.
Ambassador William J. vanden
Heuvel, deputy chief U.S. delegate to
the United Nations, hailed Rajai's im-
pending arrival as a signal of Iran's

"willingness to come back to the com-
munity of nations."
The American envoy indicated the
United States would not ratise. the issue
of the 52 American hostages during the
council debate on the Iran-Iraq conflict.
The issue, Vanden Heuvel said, "would
be handled carefully at the highest level
of our government" so as to avoid
jeopardizing the hostages.
Yesterday's council meeting, which
lasted little more than an hour; marked
the first Iranian appearance before the

body since the seizure of the American
hostages last November. Iran has
ignored council calls to free the
Americans.
Hammadi outlined to the council
what he described as 46 years of
treaty violations by expansionist Per-
sian regimes in Tehran.
He contended Iran's revolutionary
government violated the 1975 Algiers
agreement setting borders and
regulating navigation on the Shatt al-
Arab waterway, which forms part of
the Iran-Iraq border.

Letter from hockey team confirms freshmen hazings

(Continued from Page 1)

According to the three players who
brought the release to the Daily last
night, three players returned to
Markley Monday to check on the
freshman.
THE HAZED freshman continued to
remain silent about the incident.
"I don't want to talk about it. It's over
now, I want to forget it," said the
hockey player, who asked to remain
anonymous. He refused to comment-
any further.
"He told me he did not want to
prosecute the players involved because
he 'has to play hockey with them for the
rest of the season,"' said Steve
XKrahnke, a resident adviser in Markley
Hall where the player lives.

MEANWHILE, University Athletic
Director Don Canham said the three
team captains sent a letter of apology to
the University, the (athletic depar-
tment, and to the players who were
hazed.
"The letter said there would never be
any hazings again and the players in-
volved were considering some type of
community service to make up for their
act," he said.
Canham said that "if the players talk
about the incident, it might complicate
the issue."
"When you have 25 players, coaches,
and staff speaking out, who knows how
many versions of the story you'll get."
ACCORDING TO Canham, some
faculty members of the University sent
him letters saying he should cancel the
hockey season.

"Don't these people take the time to
think that the freshman who have been
hazed want to continue playing
hockey?" he noted. "Some people have
said the players involved in the hazing
should be sent to Sing-Sing. That's
ridiculous!"
"It was a serigus incident," Canham
continued, "but it wasn't murder, no
one was hurt," he said.
Canham also said the disciplinary ac-

tion taken against the players involved
in the incident has remained private
"to protect the players from further
embarassment."
He added that the athletic depar-
tment plans to take further disciplinary
action.
He also said the public has no
business knowing how the athletic dep-
partment disciplines University
athletes:
