dealt a virtual death blow yesterday to
Gov. William Milliken's $451 million
executive 'budget cut, and- Budget
Director Gerald Miller said anything
that "gets the votes" may be part of a
revised proposal.
Majority. Democrats on the House
Appropriations Committee voted to ad-
journ their joint meeting with their
Senate counterparts shortly after
Miller delivered the record cut for their
consideration.
MILLER LATER agreed the adjour-
nment was tantamount to a rejection of
the $451 million cut in virtually all state
spending areas.
"I'm not disturbed by it," he said,
noting House Republicans had said they
were prepared to vote against it."I ex-

pect as part of the negotiations process it
will be changed. I do expect to issue
another order."
The executive order and a proposal to
increase in the stae income tax from 4.6
percent to 5.3 percent are Milliken's
plan to deal with a $567 million deficit in
the state's current 1981-82 budget.
MILLER SAID suggestions by
lawmakers that welfare benefit reduc-
tions and some form of property tax
relief become part of the total program
will be taken to Milliken although he is
"uncomfortable" with them.
The budget cut proposal, the second
this fiscal year, was nearly identical to
the plan Milliken suggested on
statewide television last week. It in-

ntruders'
By ROB FRANK
When a noise in freshperson Janet Feldman's Mark-
ley dorm room woke her up one December morning,
she expected to see her roommate returning from an
early morning exam. Instead, Feldman faced an in-
truder on his way out of the room with her backpack
and several other items.
Early last month, an intruder tied a female
resident of Baits Housing to her bed, and sexually
assaulted her at knifepoint.
LATER IN THE month, occupants of two rooms in
Markley Hall slept undisturbed as burglars made off
with cash and a tape recorder.
Housing administrators and residents, worried

about the growing number of rapes, attempted rapes,
and major thefts across campus, are stepping up
secuity measures in and around ithe residence halls.
"Most of the crimes within a dorm occur because a
door has been left open," said Gerry Bradshaw, a
University housing security officer. Often an in-
truder enters a room intending only to steal, officials
explained. If a woman is sleeping inside however,
assault and sometimes rapedean and do occur.
ROOMMATES OFTEN are more concerned about
locking each other out than they are about the risk in-
volved with open doors, according to Feldman, the
victim of Markley's first reported break-in this year.
"It's like camp," she said. "You think it's no big
deal to leave your door open for two hours." But the

robbery has had-tn effect on her, she said, explaining
that she had nightmares about the theft, and that the
sound of a door opening wakes her now.
"Students have to be more willing to challenge
suspicious persons and regard the halls as theirs,"
said Mary Antineau, South Quad's building director.
Antineau has organized several programs to educate
dorm residents, including presentations by security
officers, self-defense workshops, and safety slide
shows.
"I DON'T KNOW what more you can do, unless
you start playing mommy and daddy," said Kevin
Doria, Markley building director. "I can't go around

rights
By HARLAN KAHN
American Indian activist Russell
Means is still fighting for his rights as a
native American, and yesterday he
brought a bit of that war to the Univer-
sity.
Means, who spoke yesterday at Hut-
chins Hall in the Law School, addressed
the nation's "arrogance of human
rights," as part of a two day seminar
sponsored by the American Indian Law
Students Association.
MEANS SAID he ,wants freedom
from exploitation and manipulation for
all people, but only in the context of
natural rights. There are three types of
rights, Means explained, human, civil,

Monkeyshines
Brookfield Zoo in Illinois is having problems with their
primate residents. Sampson, a 450-pound gorilla on loan to
Brookfield Zoo from Buffalo, N.Y., attempted to swat a
small female talapoin monkey. The attack forced the
smaller monkey to jump into a frigid pool in the zoo's new
primate exhibit area to escape. A zoo worker was lowered
into the pool by a rope to rescue the monkey named Abbie.
Joyce Gardella, a zoo spokeswoman, said the monkeys
