meter running, and pieces of equipment
being used that cost thousands of
dollars an hour," Porterfield said.
PORTERFIELD HAS written cover
stories for Time on everything from
England's royal wedding and Brooke
Shields to cocaine. Arts reviewing is
currently his main interest.
"There is a certain sense in a review
that a reader reads and a critic writes.
It is like a continuing conversation, or
even of an argument," Porterfield
Porterfield' admitted that Time and
its rival Newsweek were very similar,
but blamed the similarity on the special
constraints of journalism.
"COMMON GOALS and the fact that,
deadline applies to both of us" accounts
for the likeness, Porterfield explained.
Porterfield predicted that the future
will bring a domination of video over
print in media.
"I think video has a very strong
future. It is persuasive in ways we
hadn't thought," Porterfield said.
BUT PORTERFIELD said
newspapers and magazines would still
thrive. "I don't think video's growth
will be at the expense of print. Print
media will always find a way of adap-
ting and responding," he said.
Print media has an advantage over
television in "bringing a focus that is
sharper and in more depth than you can
find in the visual media. You can't get
that richness of information and the
nuances on television," Porterfield ad-
Porterfield left the University's
prospective journalists with a final piece
of advice. "I would certainly say have
faith in print and in the vitality of writ-
ten language. And have faith the
people are always going to needt
curiosity, judgement, and inter-
pretative skill that journalism prese..
Porterfield said he enjoyed his term
as a University professor, but regretted-
that his tenure was limited to one week.
"Perhaps if I come back, I'll stay
longer," he added.
Daily Classifieds Bring Results
MORE THAN 3,000 marchers streamed past the Alabama State Capitol in Montgomery yesterday to show support for
an extension of the Voting Rights Act.
Voting rights march completed
From AP and UPI
MONTGOMERY, Ala. - More than
3,000 people completed a 15-mile-long
voting rights protest march yester-
day, taking a detour for the last few
miles of a historic 1965 route rather
than risk arrests.
THE MARCH, which began in num-
bing cold in Pickens County on Feb. 6,
ended at the Capitol beneath brilliant
skies and mild, spring-like tem-
peratures. The marchers - most of
them blacks - sang, waved and
raised fists of unity, their ranks
swelling dramatically as the route
wound through Montgomery.
The marchers chanted, "Reagan,
Reagan, he's no good, send him back
The threat of mass arrests hung
over the demonstrators barely an
hour before the last day's walk began
as they vowed to ignore the route
specified in their parade permit.
AFTER LENGTHY negotiations, a
compromise was reached between
black leaders and Police Chief
Charles Swindall and the trek was
completed without incident. Some 100
police, including uniformed blacks as
well as whites, provided escort.
A dozen police cars moved ahead of
the marchers, clearing the streets,
while hundreds of spectators lined the
parade route to watch one of the
largest such demonstrations since the
heyday of the civil rights movement
in the 1960s. Many of the spectators
fell into ranks with the marchers as
This march also was inspired by the
voting-fraud convictions of two black
women - Julia Wilder, 70, and
Maggie Bozeman, 51 - who had been
active in civil rights work in Pickens
County, where the march began.
Placards and banners honoring them
were carried by marchers.

assess the impact of sharp budget cuts
on these programs.
Each of the BPC's subcommittees
held public hearings to get a com-
mumity reaction to the proposed cuts.
When the review process had been
completed, only the Recreational Spor-
ts Department wound up with a smaller
reduction than Frye had originally
The subcommittee reviewing the Ex-
tension Service recommended the
complete elimination of the unit, which
formerly had provided college-level
courses at a number of locations across
THE UNIVERSITY'S executive of-
ficers decided it was necessary to keep
at least one of the Extension Service's
programs, and a 90 percent reduction
The most controversial budget cut of
last year concerned the elimination of
the geography department, which was
the only academic unit presented for
review by the administration.
A four-member faculty committee
conducted the review of the geography
department. Although its recommen-
dation was to eliminate the depar-
tment, a later LSA faculty vote asked
the University to save the program.
The University's executive officers
and the Regents opted with the earlier
committee recommendation and it was
decided that the department will be
eliminated by July 1.
The process for reviews of non-
academic units begins in Frye's office.
After receiving approval from the
faculty and student Budget Priorities
Committee to initiate a formal review,
a subcommittee is created to in-
vestigate each unit.
The Budget Priorities Committee
then considers its subcommittees'
reports and passes them on to the
executive officers. If an entire Univer-
sity unit is to be closed down, the
recommendation must be approved by
