The Regents seeking re-election say
they look at the possibility of budget
shortages and other University
problems with experience and objec-
tive judgments.
"We will have reduced funding at
least over the next three months,"
Regent David Laro (R-Flint) said. But
he "would not vote again for a tuition
raise unless the administration had
done alf it could do to reduce the
Arbor) said many of the decisions con-
cerning budget cuts will be made by the
faculty and the administration, "Con-
flicting questions come to the 'fegen-
ts," he said.
Commenting on the possibility of
severe budget cuts for the University
over a long period of time, Laro said,
"If we cannot command quality in all
areas, then we must reduce some
programs to insure the quality in
others. It is premature to say what we
will drop. More importantly, the
process (of program cuts) must be a
fair process. We must involve all parts
of the University-the faculty, the
students, the alumni."'
Despite the reduced budget, Laro
said, "We will maintain our adherence

to affirmative action. I have always
advocated affirmative action, and I will
continue to do so."
BAKER SAID he also supports affir-
mative action policies.
One of Baker's primary concerns is
the independence of the University
from government control. "We are
responsible to the public and the gover-
nment," he said, "but the university
system has to guard its particular
freedom to seek the truth." He said, for
example, the "government has called
upon universities' medical schools to
admit a certain number of . foreign
medical students.-Again, it's a univer-
sity function to admit these students (or
Laro said he thinks the presence of
three tax proposals on the November
ballot "is a sign of the public's loss of
confidence in the legislators to
legislate." He and Baker voted with the
rest of the Regents to officially oppose
the Tisch tax cut proposal at the last
Regent's meeting.
On divestment, Laro said he thinks
the strict application by the University
of the Sullivan Principles, an anti-
discrimination policy he helped to im-
plement a year ago, may be harmful to
the University. The Regents will vote at
their next meeting whether or not to sell
bonds in firms in South Africa that do
not adhere to the Sullivan principles. If
they do sell, the University will lose
$50,000 because of it.
"I feel that that (the policy of in-
vesting only in companies which obey
the Sullivan principles) was incorrect,"
he said.
Baker said he thinks the University
should not get involved in political mat-
ters, but investments should be only
made in companies that adhere to the
Sullivan principles.

In addition to the major party candidates, two Liber-
tarians and two American Independent Party candidates are
running for seats on the University Board of Regents.
Libertarian Kurt O'Keefe advocates a society free from
government interference. "We (the Libertarians) see
taxation as coercion. Each individual is entitled to keep what
he earns," O'Keefe said. For this reason he and others in his
party favor the Tisch amendment.
O'KEEFE'S FELLOW Libertarian Claudia Dechow
believes Tisch "can be implemented without harm in this
state." She said she advocates a fuller use of student workers
in clerical and secretarial positions in the University to save
money and to help the students earn the necessary funds for
attending college.

The two Libertarians disagreed over the issue of the
Graduate Employees Organization's right to collectively
bargain with the University. Dechow ,said she thinks
anything that will use more of the taxpayers' money should
be resisted. O'Keefe, however, said he believes, "people have
the right to organize. Bargaining and strikes are not coer-
