PIR GIM,
MSA plan
campaign
opposing
cutbacks
By FANNIE WEINSTEIN
In an effort to further combat federal
cuts in financial aid to students, several
student organizations are seeking help
from professors and students in a
massive letter-writing campaign
tomorrow directed toward members of
Congress.
"We've asked them to give five
minutes of their class time to let
students write four sentences," said
Cor Trowbridge, a representative of the
Public Interest Research Group in
Michigan.
PIRGIM, the Rackham Student
Government, and the Michigan Student
Assembly have provided faculty mem-
bers with the names of Michigan's
congress members, according to
Trowbridge, and out-of-state students
are encouraged to write either one of their
own congressmembers of the targeted
Senate and House Budget Committees.
TROWBRIDGE described the cam-
paignas "crucial," and said she hoped
the letters, which will be sent to
Washington, would have an effect on
members of Congress.
"The best we can hope for is to regain
some of the money it's proposed we lose
... and for the budget committees to
oppose Reagan's proposals," she said.
"Because of Reagan's cuts, it means
a $1 million loss for us this year and a
(possible) $5 or $6 million dollar loss for.
next year.,"
The three groups co-sponsoring the
campaign also have been working on a
petition drive opposing financial aid
cutbacks since Jan. 21.

U-Cellar to

Finding that perfect gift for your Valentine may require only a brisk departure from the confines of central campus into
the depths of "old" Ann Arbor. Although much of 4th St. may not possess the traits usually associated with areas of this
type, the display in the window of Sensually Yours caters to the less discriminating Valentine's Day purchaser who may

Students to protest defense at 'U'

By JANET RAE
After weeks of negotiating, Univer-
sity Cellar officials have signed a lease
to move the store into a new home on.
the corner of E. Liberty and Division
Streets, U-Cellar officials confirmed
yesterday. The officials said they hope
to open the new location by early sum-
mer.
Although the decision to move is
finally definite, troubles continue to
brew between the bookstore and the
Michigan Union, its present landlord.
THE NEW SITE will be shared with
Handicraft Furniture Store, the present
occupant of the building. Signatures
must still be obtained from Jack
Lepard, manager of the furniture store,
but he said yesterday what remains to
be done are "just details."
The 21,000 square feet U-Cellar will
occupy are spread over three floors.
Bookstore officials hope to open for
business at the new location before
June 15.
As preparations for the move begin,
negotiations for an equitable interim
lease with the Union continue. U-Cellar
officials have already rejected two
leases presented them by Union Direc-
tor Frank Cianciola as unsatisfactory.
THE U-CELLAR has been operating
in the Union on a month-to-month lease
since the store's last contract expired in
November, 1978.
Bookstore officials say they are
dissatisfied with Cianciola's proposal
that they begin paying $9.07 per square
foot until they move out in June. The

store presently pays $5.48 per square
foot.
"We told him (Cianciola) verbally we
wouldn't accept that," said Mary Anne
Caballero, chairwoman of U-Cellar's
Board of Directors. Since renovations
began last month, access to the
bookstore's basement location has been
limited, she said. "Some students think
we're already closed. At the only
remaining entrance, there are four
doors- two of which are broken. And
the man is expecting us to pay $9.07?
We think we should get a rent reduc-
tion."
"I know that (rent) was one of their
concerns," Cianciola said. "We're still
trying- to work out an amiable
solution."
If it (the move) works out for them
- and I hear it will - I'm happy for
them," Cianciola said. "I wish them
the bestof success."
ALTHOUGH HE has received
several inquiries from area retailers,
Cianciola said the Union Board of Direc-
tors has come to no conclusions about
how- to use the U-Cellar's space once the
bookstore moves. le did say, however,
that it was unlikely another -bookstore
would move in.
"The Board is not particularly in-
terested in getting into competition
with the U-Cellar for one thing," he
said. "We want to provide the oppor-
tunity for an exciting mix downstairs:.
we'd like a mall kind of feel."

A group of at least 50 students, con-
cerned with the University's in-
volvement with the Department of
Defense, planned last night to stage 'a
protest this morning at the University's
Institute of Science and Technology
building on North Campus.
The students were under the im-
pression that Air Force representatives
would be meeting with University of-
ficials on campus this morning to
discuss the possibility of the Air Force
financing construction of a proposed
robotics research institute on campus.
The students said last night that they
would present a list of demands to
University officials concerning the

University's involvement in research
sponsored by the Department of Defen-
se.
LATE LAST night, however, the
students, many of whom are members
of the Committee for Research on In-
telligence and Military Endeavors, a
campus political group, learned that
the Air Force representatives had
already come and gone. But, CRIME
spokesperson Liz Galst said the protest
would go on as planned.
The University's College of
Engineering has requested a grant of
more than $7 million from the Air Force
to help establish a robotics institute.
The students said they will demand that
the University include in its handling of

robotics a sludy of the impact the new
technology will have on employment in
Michigan. I
In addition, they said they will ask for
an open forum to examine the Univer-
sity's dealings with the Pentagon, and
for the formation of a committee of
students and community and Univer-
sity representativesIto study all defen-
se-sponsored research on campus.
THE CONFUSION began yesterday
when an MSA investigator asked a
University administrator when the Air
Force would be on campus. Alan Price,
an assistant to the Vice President for
Research Charles Overberger, said he
expected the Air Force to arrive in two
weeks, unaware that the represen-
tatives already had been here.

Legal fght
develops
over 'U'
professor
By HARLAN KAHN

University lawyers yesterday filed a
brief in U.S. Circuit Court on behalf of a
University professor sought as a witness
in a court battle between a North
Carolina family and the American
Motors Corporation.
The family, of Glenn Buchanan, a
North Carolina man, who died in an ac-
cident in an AMC Jeep CJ-5, sub-
poenaed Prof. Richard Snyder to testify
in the case as a highway safety resear-
ch expert.
Snyder, a leading expert in aviation
crashes and one of the few forensic an-
thropologists in the nation, has resear-
ched a variety of road crash studies on
vehicles - including the Jeep CJ-5 - at
the University's Highway Safety
Research Institute.
ON SNYDER'S behalf; University
lawyers won a ruling last Oct. 21 from
Judge James Churchill in U.S. District
Court in Ann Arbor.
AMC has appealed this decision to
Circuit Court in Cincinnati.
According to Peter Davis, the
University attorney handling Snyder's
case, the situation involves 'issues of
academic freedom and the First
Amendment."
THE SUPREME Court has ruled that

LANSING (UPI)- Gov. William
Milliken told representatives of the
radical All-People's Congress yester-
day he is "trying like the devil" to ease
the problems of the poor in Michigan.
Milliken's face-to-face meeting with
leaders of the organization capped a
day of protests over budget cuts and
demands for emergency aid.
WILLIAM Roundtree, a spokesman
for the organization, said the fact that

Milliken was willing to meet with the
group was good, but said he is not
satisfied its problems have been ad-
dressed.
Those attending the conference then
marched to the Capitol where they
gathered outside the governor's office
chanting "We want jobs!" "No utility
hikes!" and "We want food, not empty
pots!"
MILLIKEN stressed his support for
increasing welfare benefits, noting it

faces strong legislative opposition, and
his efforts to bolster Michigan's
economy.
"I wish there was a magic solution ...
We're trying like the devil to solve those
problems," he said.
He also promised to issue a statement
dealing with the Congress' program
which includes a moratorium on plant
closings, utility shutoffs, foreclosures;
evictions and new taxes on the rich to
maiNtain social programs.
