High Court upholds ERA ruling

WASH4INGTON (UPI) -The Supreme Court, in a
move that cheered supporters of the Equal Rights
Amendment, yesterday temporarily blocked a lower
court decision that Congress exceeded its power by
extending the ERA ratification deadline.
At the same time, however, the justices indicated
they are not likely to settle the issue conclusively
before the new deadline passes this summer.
AND THE HIGH court refused a request by the
National Organization for Women to speed up its con-
sideration of the crucial question - whether
Congress had the constitutional authority to tack two

more years onto the original ERA ratification period..
In a brief order, the justices did stay the ruling by
Idaho U.S. District Judge Marion Callister, who had
declared Congress overstepped its authority by stret-
ching the deadline to this June 30.
Callister's ruling cast a legal shadow over last-
minute efforts to win approval for the ERA from the
three more states needed by the deadline. No state
has approved the amendment in the last five years.
NOW President Eleanor Smeal called the court's
action "a tremendous victory:" "All we ever wanted
was to remove this decision" during the final drive

for ratification of ERA, she said. "This action frees
legislators who felt they had to make a legal deter-
mination about the deadline extension."
Phyllis Schlafly, national president of Stop ERA,
also described the high court's action as "a tremen-
dous victory."
"The Supreme Court case on ERA will have no ef-
fect whatsoever on ERA itself because ERA is
already defeated." She added, "It had three fatal
blows in the last two weeks in the states where flie
proponents had the best chances to ratify, --;
Oklahoma, Illinois, and Georgia.".

New Jersey college,
explosion injures 46

The Michigan Daily

CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - An explosion
apparently triggered by methane gas
rocked the basement of a Camden
County College building yesterday in-
juring at least 46 people and shattering
windows on two floors, authorities said.
"The walls came down and the
ceiling fell down and then everybody
tried to get out," said Pamela Wilmer,
22, a freshman from Camden who was
in a basement classroom when the ex-
plosion occured at 12;30 p.m.
ODOM BARNEY, president of the
Camden College urban campus said the
explosion appeared to have been
caused by "collected sewer gas." But
he and other officials said investigators
had not officially determined the cause.
Barney said the explosion ripped
through one classroom and tore out the
partition to an adjacent reading and
writing lab.

"The panic was the reason half the
people got injured," said WilmeC, who
suffered fractured ribs. "People got
scared and trampled each other trying
to get out."
BASEMENT and first floor windows
were shattered. No other buildings in
the area appeared to be damaged.
Patrolman Jim -Rizzo said the
boiler'and heater were intact in the
basement.
The victims were taken to three
hospitals. Two were listed in critical'
condition at Cooper Medical Center,
according to a spokeswoman Robina
Phoenix.
Varnette Lee, whose age and
hometown were not known, underwent
surgery yesterday afternoon for chest
and abdomen injuries, Phoenix said.
Another person, not identified, was in
the intensive care unit for treatment of
a skull'fracture, the spokeswoman said.

Association to be in other lcoations by
late spring. "At that time we'll let con-
tractors have full reign of those areas,"
he said.
THIS WEEK the U-Cellar will move
its "buy back" service across the hall,
Cianciola said and work will begin on
the room now occupied by the pinball
and vending machines.
The pinball machines will be
relocated but Cianciola said he was not
sure where.
Less radical change are slated for the
main floor where the major visual
change will be the lighting. "We'll be
trying to capture what's there

already," said Tarapata, adding that
the lighting would create a "whole new
ambiance."
According to Cianciola, the Campus
Information Center will be moved to the
lobby and the wall now under construc-
tion will divide the room. the ticket of-
fice will move downstairs, he said.
Also on the first floor, the plans call
for the U-Club to have its original
ceilingrestored and for the terrace to
have an entrance into the main lobby.
the U-Club will stay open until com-
mencement in May, when the
renovatins will begin there, Cian'iola
said.
Cianciola expects no immediate

major disruptions to users as access
will be maintained to all areas. "We'll
communicate new routes and try to
keep inconveniences to a minimum,"
he said.
During renovation in .the next few
weeks:
" Union meeting rooms will remain
open;
North entrance stairway will be
closed during the day;
access to Alumni Association and
music practice rooms will be through
main and south doors only; and
" ground floor men's restroom will be
closed.

U' officials voice mixed reactions to state budget

(Continued fromPage 1)
Frye said that while the anticipated
14 percent increase for 1983 was higher
than planners wee expecting, the
possibility of significant cuts in that in-
crease similar to the ones taken in last
fiscal year's appropriation still exist.
Milliken's $5.2 billion state budget
represents an increase of 13.9 percent
above current spending levels. Besides
the extra money slotted for higher
education, most of the increase will go
toward aid to local governments and
welfare.
While the proposed budget will mark
the first increase in three recession-
torn years, it still will be smaller in
real, inflation-adjusted terms than the
spending plans of 10 years ago, budget
director Miller said.
THE UNIVERSITY isn't the only vic-
tim of the state's lasMiminute belt-
tightening to balance the 1982 budget;
local governments will also feel the
pinch by losing their August and Sep-
tember revenue sharing payments of
$58.1 million. Like the University's last
quarter deferment, the loss is to be
reimbursed during fiscal 1983.
"My budget proposal for 1982-83 will
permit us to move Michigan ahead once
again, to energetically meet the
challenge of economic development
and job creation and to assist those
areas of state services hardest hit by
reductions, without increasing general
fund taxes," Milliken said.
He reiterated an earlier pledge not to

raise general taxes to balance the
budget.
MILLIKEN'S PLANS for higher
spending in fiscal 1983 are based on the
prediction that pent-up demand for
autos, lower interest rates and the
federal tax cut will result in a
significant increase in auto sales this
year.
Milliken allocated other spending
hikes in his proposal. State per pupil
spending for elementary and secondary
education will be boosted by 8.7 percent
based on an expected 9.5 percent
property tax increase. The state ac-
tually will be spending less total dollars
on education because of declining

enrollment.
Community and junior colleges are
slated for average increases of 9.9 per-
cent.
Further benefits will go to welfare
recipients, who will receive a monthly
grant increase of 6.5 percent, only a
partial restoration of the cuts made in

recent years.
Community mental health programs
are slated for an $82.2 million increase
while state facilities will lose $10.6
million.
