The Michigan Union bowling alley, a fixture in the
Union for more than 50 years, will be shut down per-
manently at the end of this term.
The decision to close the alley was made at a
February meeting of the Union's Board of Represen-
tatives. The vote of the board, which has 11 student
members, was unanimous.
RICK SLINE, director of the Office of Student
Organizations, Activities, and Programs said repetted
machine breakdowns combined with poor student in-
terest prompted the board's decision.
"We've made every possible effort to restore the
machines to working order and the investment was not
suported by the students," he said.
"It's too bad," said Sline, "but some things have to
die and be allowed to die gracefully."

WASHINGTON (UPI)- The number
of unemployed Americans rose to a
post-Depression record of 9.6 million in
February, the government reported
yesterday. But the Reagan ad-
ministration saw "relatively en-
couraging signs" the recession may be
nearing an end.
Michigan's unemployment rate rose
from 16 percent in January to 16.1 per-
cent in February with a record 684,000
people out of work, the Michigan Em-
ployment Security Commission repor-
LABOR Department data showed the
national unemployment rate returned
to a recession peak of 8.8 percent,

Gergen said, however, that
joblessness "may well go higher."

'Saturday Night's' Belushi dead
LOS ANGELES (AP)- Comedian John Belushi,
whose wayward eyebrows and bulging belly
animated his portrayal of the consummate slob on
TV's original "Saturday Night Live" and in the
movie "Animal House," was found dead yesterday at
a Hollywood bungalow.
A security guard at the Chateau Marmont Hotel
said Belushi was found nude on a bed in a bungalow
behind the hotel and appeared to have choked on
"IT APPEARS to be death by natural causes," said
Lt. Dan Cooke of the Los Angeles Police Department.
"The detectives here found nothing to make it seem
A woman, who arrived at the bungalow in Belushi's
Mercedes while authorities were there, was handcuf-
fed and taken to a police station for questioning.
Police, who did not identify the woman, said she was
a potential witness and the handcuffs werejusfstan-
Homicide detective Tony Diaz said the woman ap-
parently was the last person with Belushi -when he
became ill and she had gone for help.
"THERE DOESN'T appear to be any foul play,"
Belushi married his high school sweetheart, Judith
Jacklin, in 1967. It was not known if the woman taken
into custody was his wife.
Cooke said a heart attack was a possible cause of
death. He said an autopsy would be performed,
probably this weekend.
Tony di Domenico of the Los Angeles Fire Depar-
tment said the 33-year-old star of such movies as
"The Blues Brothers" and "1941," was pronounced
dead in the bungalow, on a winding road off Sunset
Strip, where the hotel is located.
BELUSHI, WHO made his home in New York City,
checked into the hotel last Sunday. He came to Los
Angeles to make the movie "Noble Rot" for

as Belushi's physical trainer William Wallace, found

Hollywood. Garrett Morris, a fellow member of the
"Not Ready for Prime Time Players" troupe or
"Saturday Night Live," said he was "deeply sad

"It was a great loss of a great talent," he said ii

'U' center may lose
funds in federal cuts
By FANNIE WEINSTEIN
The University's Great Lakes and
Marine Waters Center stands to lose
$200,000 from its budget if President
Reagan follows through on plans to
close down a federally funded research
program from which the GLMWC gets
some of its funds.
The fiscal '82 and '83 budget proposed
by the Reagan administration calls for
the elimination of the Ann Arbor-based
Great Lakes Environmental Research
Laboratory, which operates in
Michigan as part of the U.S. Depar-
tment of Commerce.

The LSA Executive Committee
denied Monday for a second time,
English Prof. Barbara Bono's request
for tenured status at the University.
Bono originally was denied tenure
late in February, when the committee
- comprised entirely of LSA faculty -
reviewed and rejected the English
department's recommendation that
Bono receive tenure. Some of Bono's
students, however, protested the
decision citing the professor's
reputation for superior teaching.
Marc Dann, student member of the
LSA Curriculum Committee, said Bono
was denied tenure because she was not
publishing scholarly works fast enough.
LSA Dean Peter Steiner declined to
comment on the situation.
Tenure - job security for professors
- is usually granted to "deserving"
professors after their sixth year at the
Dann expressed concern over the
decline in the importance of teaching in
tenure decisions made by the ad-
ministration. "This case is an example
of the continued conscious increase in
the importance of research in a
scholar's life at the expense of
teaching, which is contrary to the
mission of a public university."
Bono, however, feels she had made
substantial progress in her publishing
efforts. The University of California
Press has formally accepted for
publication her book, From Virgilian
Epic to Shakespearean Tragicomedy.
The book is scheduled to be released in
the spring or summer of 1983. Cornell
University has also offered Bono a-
year-long fellowship to support work on
her next book.
Bono said she understands the dif-
ficulty involved with judging tenure
cases, but she added that :the Univer-
sity's tenure review process warrants
The executive committee bases its
decisions on three primary criteria:
teaching excellence, community ser-
vice, and scholarship or research.
While Bono said she believes all of
these criteria are valid, she also
believes a balance between the three
must be achieved. Bono said these
criteria are "vitally integrated and I
have shaped my career to the produc-
tivity and achievement in those three
"Tenure committees need to be ex-
traordinarily careful," she said.
Bono won the Class of '23 Award last
year for teaching excellence.
