Fisher, Hunter victorious


After weeks of reviewing drafts
before advisory groups, Vice President
for Academic Affairs Billy Frye has
deemed the "Five-Year Plan"-a com-
prehensive framework for reallocation
of some $20 million in general funds-
ready for public unveiling.
Frye presented the still-rough draft
for the plan to members of the Senate
Assembly at their regular meeting
yesterday. While Frye's presentation
held few surprises, news of a com-
promise between Frye and Michigan
Student Assembly leaders signalled an
end to the student participation con-
AS THE PLAN now stands, Frye told
the faculty governing board, the
University intends to free some $10
million for reallocation by dismissing
some personnel while reviewing selec-
ted programs for' heavy budget cuts or
outright elimination.
Further savings would be made
through "variable shared reductions"
on all units not scheduled for heavy
reduction. Frye said he expects
academic units' budgets in this
category will average a five percent
reduction over the five years. Ad-
ministrative units' budgets will bear an
average ten percent cut over the course
of the plan.
Frye will present the proposal to the
Regents during their monthly meeting
at the end of this week.
FRYE SAID the funds would be
reallocated toward higher priority
areas, including faculty salaries, merit-

based support for graduate students,
improvement of research and teaching
environments and incentives, and "new
intellectual developments"-growth
and development of selected academic
The framework calls for reallocation
of approximately $4 million during each
of the plan's five years, Frye said. He
noted the process to target units for
review has already begun and that the
first round of reviews should begin no
later than March 1.
Frye added that, "to avoid creating
undue anxiety," all reviews planned for
the near future would be announced by
July 1, the beginning of the University's
1982-1983 fiscal year.
IN THE CQURSE of implementing
the plan, Frye said, tenured faculty
members may be discharged if their
program is eliminated and no alter-
native position is available for them.
"I do. not expect the University to
begin, rampantly discharging tenured
faculty," Frye said. "The damage that
would do. . . would more than offset any
benefits we expect from the proposal."
Frye said the University will attempt to
relocate or re-train all displaced
tenured faculty.
The student participation debate en-
ded in compromise late last week,
student leaders reported yesterday.
Earlier in the month,. Frye had
proposed that MSA provide him with a
pool of qualified students from which he
could select representatives for review

Regent Baker runs for Senate

LANSING (UPI) - University of
Michigan Regent Deane Baker for-
mally launched his U.S. Senate cam-
paign yesterday with a bid to occupy
middle ground in the Republican
primary field.
Speaking at a capital news conferen-
ce, Baker defined himself as less con-
servative than former U.S. Rep. Robert
Huber, but to the right of former U.S.
Rep. Phil Ruppe and former state
licensing director William Ballenger.
THE TWO-TERM regent stressed his
background as a businessman in the
construction industry, saying

"Michigan and its shattered economy
needs a builder."
The Ann Arbor Republican, who
finished dead last in the 1976 senatorial
primary, said polling data and his
strong showing in regent elections give
him optimism about his prospects. He
sought to turn his relatively modest
fundraising accomplishments to his
political advantage.
Baker announced his candidacy at
news conferences in Detroit and Lan-
sing. The soft-spoken businessman
wore a dark blue suit with a Polish
"Solidarity" button and read from a

lengthy, prepared campaign statement
before taking questions.
MICHIbAN'S U.S. senator must
provide proven economic leadership,
he said, noting that he is "a builder and
a businessman" who has constructed
housing in depressed urban areas and
worked with unions.
Baker, in response to a question, said
there is "no doubt Robert Huber is on
the right side of the spectrum" in the
GOP contest. "I think that I fall bet-
ween him and Mr. Ruppe and Mr.
Ballenger.. . who represent the further

new, stricter
GSL. standards.,

Students hoping to qualify for assistance next year
through the Guaranteed Student Loan program will
have to comply to new, stricter standards, according
to University financial aid officials.
A congressional subcommittee is restructuring the
GSL program, developing a "tighter definition of
financial need," Elaine Nowak, the University's GSL
coordinator, explained.
THE SUBCOMITTEE is expected to deliver a
revised eligibility plan late in March, just five mon-
ths after a revision restricting GSL assistance to only
those students whose families earn less than $30,000
per year was enacted.

"It's a wait and see situation," Nowak said. All
governmental financial aid programs are linked to
President Reagan's fiscal 1983 budget, she explained,
a formula expected to squeeze expenditures for
higher education.
The subcommittee is considering four proposals,
according to Harvey Grotrian, University Director of
financial aid.
THERE ARE several ways in which the gover-
nment could ease the burden of financing GSLs,
Grotrian said. One proposal being considered in
Washington would 'hike the origination fee-the
processing fee charged off the top of the loan-from 5

that this "is not a sexist urge. Nope, our
