A city planning study that calls for a
decrease in the number of housing units
in student neighborhoods where
housing space is already scarce is just
another example of the city's disregard
for student interests, Student Legal
Services attorney Paul Teich said
yesterday.
"Decisions like this are harmful to
students," Teich said. "The city should
realize the student body is the raison
d'etre of this town-this administration
can't continue to ignore student in-
terests if they want to remain in of-
fice."
The Ann Arbor Transitional and
Vacant Land Areas study, undertaken
in January by a Detroit consulting firm,
would establish guidelines for future
city development.
THE STUDY is currently under con-
sideration by the city Planning Com-
mission and,will face no action until
January, 1981. At that time a revised
version will be adopted by the com-
mission and sent to City Council for
final approval.
In the central campus area, for
example, the study calls for the
replacement of old, deteriorating
homes that have housed generations of
students with housing units designed
for fewer occupants.
Robert Swarthout, vice president of
Luedtke and Associates, the firm that
conducted the study, explained that
precautions must be taken to preserve
transitional neighborhoods from
deterioration, a problem that often oc-
curs when older homes are converted
into multi-family units.
"THIS (STUDY) might result in a
lower density than desired by some,"
Swarthout acknowledged. But he added
that the study allows for further
housing development at many of the
transitional sites investigated.
City areas or structures that are con-
sidered under the plan for conversion to
multi-family residences are: The old
St. Joseph Hospital located at
Catherine and Inglis Streets; the

to balance
From staff and UPI reports
Further cutbacks in state funding for
the University are one part of a grim
budget-balancing plan unveiled by Gov.
William Milliken last night in his
second televised address in five weeks.
Milliken said he would ask
lawmakers to balance the state's 1980-
81 budget through $300 million in "ex-
tremely painful" cuts instead of tax
hikes.
THESE CUTS, Milliken said, would.
include $60 million from higher
education.
University President- Harold Shapiro
said last night that this would probably
mean a decrease of about five per cent
from last year's state allocation to the
University. University administrators
recently have been planning on only a
four per cent budget cut for 1980-81,
which was worse than the original
"worse case" prediction, in which state
allocations were expected to remain at
1979-80 levels.
With inflation rates over 10 per cent,
Milliken's proposed cut "will be a very
tough blow for us to respond to,"
Shapiro said.

SHAPIRO SAID the University vi

has been this year, despite the setback.,
"The full impact of the cut will-be
more noticeable in the 1981-82 budget;
Shapiro said. He explained that this
year, the University will be able to rely
somewhat on its reserves to offset the
cuts.
Flanked by American and Michigan
flags on a public television studio set,
Milliken grimly outlined cuts in all
facets of state government - including
education, welfare, state police and
local revenue sharing payments.
ABOUT 1,000 additional state
workers - including 125 state troopers
- likely will be laid off while some state
parks might have to be closed as a
result of the proposed cuts.
Iegislative leaders got the bad news,
from Milliken earlier in the day in a
closed-door meeting.
Referring to a text instead of using a
teleprompter, Milliken said he gave:
"careful consideration" to raising:
taxes to avoid further cuts but discar-
ded the idea - in part because of the;

Hoffman iicules Reagan

High anxity
Program seeks to help,
students under pressure,

By STEVE HOOK and MAUREEN FLEMING
Activist Abbie Hoffman went on two trips yesterday.
First, he appeared before the New York State Supreme
Court to face charges of selling cocaine. His hearing was
postponed, however. Second, he flew to Ann Arbor to ap-
pear at the Michigan Theater as part of the Viewpoint
Lecture series.
During his two-hour address to about 550 people, Hof-
fman spoke bitterly, if not mockingly, of the decade ahead
in the United States. His ridicule of President-elect
Ronald Reagan provided assurance that, if he is not im-
prisoned on the drug charges, he will continually
challenge the new administration.
"It's like being a genie and coming out of a bottle after
seven years (of exile in the U.S. and abroad)," Hoffman
said, "you've got a lot you want to talk about."

"KNOWN FOR his clowning and exhibitionism while
publicly denouncing government policies ("I've been
thanked for putting fun into activism," he boasted), Hof-
fman's address was at times a bawdi, George Carlin.
esque comedy monologue, and at others, a somber
description of what he sees as a society gone bad, with
serious trouble ahead.
"It would all be a joke if it wasn't so sad," Hoffman
declared after a laugh-filled description of what he called
"Reaganomics."
"Ronny the Roughrider," Hoffman joked, "he fell off
more horses than any TV cowboy in history." Hoffman
predicted that Reagan will "stroke out" within a year,
"and then it'll be President Bush, David Rockefeller's
boy."

The student stared blankly at his
exam paper while a fat bead of sweat
rolled ever so slowly down his neck,
working its way along his tensed back.
Sweat was also beginning to cover the
palms of his cold, trembling hands and
his furrowed brow.
He had entered the examination room
anxiety-ridden minutes before, a con-
dition that intensified soon after he en-
countered that first perplexing question
on the sheet. Now, none of the questions
seemed to make any sense at all.
The tension mounted. He might get a
lower grade on the test, he anguished,
or worse, blow it completely. How could
he face himself, his friends, and his

family knowing his grade point average
had plumetted to an abyssmal 3.8?
THE NERVOUSNESS that accom-
panies midterm and final examination
weeks is a condition that many students
learn to cope with. But for some studen-
ts the anxiety can build up to a point
where it seriously affects their grades,
social lives, and even their health.
The condition may be especially
common among students in various
University honors programs, according
to Tom Morson, a counselor at the
University Office of Student Services
Counseling Services.
Morson has designed the Anxiety
Workshop to help honors students over-

Students query Canham

By SARA ANSPACH
and BARRY WITT
Couzens Hall residents last
night had a rare opportunity to
talk with the University's best-
known promotional and financial
wizard - Athletic Director Don
Canham.
Invited by a Couzens resident
advisor to speak to dormitory
residents, Canham was warmly
received by a crowd of more than
50 students.
With post-season bowl bids
coming out this weekend, football
dominated the conversation.
CANHAM WAS reluctant to
make any predictions on the out-
comes of the Purdue and Ohio
State games. He did, however,
hypothesize on the post-season
bowl picture, saying that if
Michigan were to lose either of its
last two games (and therefore
forfeit its chances of a Rose bowl

bid), it is unlikely that the
Wolverines would be invited to
any of the other New Year's
bowls (Cotton, Orange, and
Sugar).
. Canham said that after those
four games, the Fiesta Bowl and
Gator Bowl are considered to be,
the most prestigious, but it is
unlikely Michigan would attend
the Gator Bowl in view of its par-
ticipation in last year's game.
When questioned about the
much-publicized hazing of a
member of the hockey team,
Canham said the event was blown
out of proportion by the media,
and he condemned reports of the
hazing from the resident advisor

in Markley who had originally
contacted the media about the
story.
Canham called the hazing an
"initiation rite that got out of
hand. They (the hockey players)
had a party and got drunk.. . It
was stupid, but that's what hap-
pened," Canham said.
ALTHOUGH several students
asked about sanctions taken
against the players, Canham told
them it was "nobody's business."
The recently-completed Title
IX review of the athletic depar-
tment went well, Canham said.
Although he said he didn't know
what the findings of the Depar-
tment of Education will be, he

told the students: "I don't see
how it can be anything but good."
Canham said the University
does as well as any school in the
area of providing equal oppor-
tunities to male and female
athletes.
A student then asked if that
meant women's and men's teams
were given exactly equal treat-
ment at the University.
CANHAM QUICKLY replied
that no, men's and women's
teams were "not even close" for
several reasons. He said that
men's athletics has been around
for at least 100 years, and that
women have quite a bit of cat-
ching up to do.
For example, he said, curren-
tly there are not enough qualified
women athletes to justify gran-
ting the same amount of scholar-
ship money to women as is given
to male athletes.

ODAY
Want to graduate?
LL STUDENTS planning to graduate May 2 are
reminded that tomorrow is the deadline to submit
graduation materials for a guaranteed audit
confirming all requirements have been met.
Candidates who do not comply with the deadline cannot be
guaranteed that a University auditor will check his or her
records to compile missing credit hours, concentration
classes, and cognates in time for the student to reorganize

murders was to have fraternity members escort women
home. She explained that it was time women took this
problem into their own hands and gained control of the
situation. The rape site information was compiled from
newspaper clippings and oral reports, the spokeswoman
said.
Touchy business
A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, and a
bordello by any other name is still thought of as a place of
business. Even though Patti and Frank DiNunzio disman-

"There would be knocks on the door as soon as the lights
went on," Patti DiNunzio said. "In the first month after we
had moved in, we would get an average of 10 cars a day and
as many as two dozen on Sundays." Evidently the sex-
seekers won't take the hint because the family has posted
signs in the front yard, on the garage, on trees down the'
long driveway, and on the front door telling people that the
home is a private residence. Patti DiNunzio said her
husband is getting kind of touchy about the problem. "A
young man came up and refused to believe the prostitutes
were gone. He looked past my husband and saw me. 'What
about her?' he asked. My husband let go the dog and hit the

been denied the right to return following earlier tran-

younger brother Ken intervened by shoving her and using

Mayor Schlee, who denies the barmaid's version of. the
