Black enrollment at the University's
nn Arbor campus has dropped 5.2 per-
cent since Fall 1980, and overall
minority enrollment here has fallen 0.2
per-cent, according to statistics
released yesterday.
But the same statistics also indicated
an overall rise in minority enrollment
of 2.3 percent over the entire, three-
campus University of Michigan
system. Officials said the overall in-
crease was due to more black students
nrolling at the Dearborn campus and

downlo 4.9 percent.
Minority student leaders were shar-
ply critical of the information contained
in the report, and claimed the Univer-
sity isn't trying hard enough to meet the
10 percent goal promised 12 years ago.
George Goodman, director of the
University's Opportunity Program
conceded that the University's minority
recruitment and enrollment hasn't
n as successful as he would like.
He said the University was unable to
"attract highly qualified, out-of-state
minority students." He blamed that
problem on "the high cost of attending

Art, Education
face reviews

The University administration an-
nounced yesterday that it has targeted
the Schools of Art, Education, and
Natural Resources for reviews that
could lead to major cutbacks or their
outright elimination.
It is the first time in recent Univer-
sity history that the administration has
considered closing completely one of
the University's 17 schools and
THE REVIEWS, which will be con-
ducted by committees made up of
faculty members, administrators, and
students, should begin within the next
two weeks, said Vice President for
Academic Affairs Billy Frye after
yesterday's Regents' meeting. "If we
need more time, we'll take it. We need
to do these reviews well," Frye added.
This is the first time since last year's
review of the geography department

Chapman, Julie Hinds, Janet Rae,

that an academic unit has been
targeted for a review with budget
reductions as a potential outcome. The
Regents voted to eliminate the
geography department last July.
All the schools will be treated equally

ministrators would not say why these
particular schools had been named for
possible cutbacks. Frye said, however,
that the administration has prepared a
list of reasons for why these schools
were selected, and that he may release
it in the near future.

schools totals $9,459,000, and the

compared to recent years," said University
President Harold Shapiro.
DESPITE EARLIER hopes that any tuition
increase would be announced before students
leave campus at the end of next month, ad-
ministrators said yesterday they cannot say un-
til later, probably in the summer how much
tuition will be hiked.
Administrators are waiting for legislative ac-
tion on a state budget package recently proposed
by Gov. William Milliken. Among other things,
the package calls for a slight increase in the
state's personal income tax rate and deferment
of the University's fourth quarter appropriations

for July, August, and September until the begin-
ning of the fiscal year 1983.
If the legislature gives blanket approval to
Milliken's proposal, the University will receive a
14 percent increase in its state appropriation,
minus the interest lost on the money it had to
take out of investments to cover the fourth quar-
ter deferment.
FRYE'S "BEST CASE" plan relies on ap-
proval of this deferment and the subsequent 14
percent increase; his-"worst case" plan calls for
no increase at all. Frye added that ap-
propriations might be even lower, should the leg-

oses position
on Security
Raymond Tanter, a University professor of
political science, will be leaving his post as a
senior staff member of the National Security
Council, it was revealed yesterday.
Tanter's departure from the council has
been attributed to a broad NSC staff shake-up
set in motion by National Security Advisor
William Clark. Reports have indicated that
Tanter will be transferred to a new position
,,within the administration.
"THE TRANSFER was a joint decision,"
said Tanter yesterday.
"It has not yet been worked out where I'll
be going," he said. "But I'm willing to serve
the president wherever I'm needed."
Tanter denied any knowledge of speculation

A lack of desperately needed state funds may
jeopardize completion of the University's $285
million Replacement Hospital Project, Chief
Financial Officer and Vice President James
Brinkerhoff told the Regents yesterday.
Approximately $140 million in state bonds needed
for the construction of the University's new hospital
have not yet been sold. These bonds must be sold by
the beginning of the 1983 calendar year, or construc-
tion of the hospital may be halted, according to

Anti-Nazi groups
vary in approach

Although opposition to a rally
scheduled by a neo-Nazi group
for noon tomorrow at Ann Ar-
bor's City Hall has been strong, a
philosophical debate over how to
respond to the rally continues.
Two local groups have ealled
for direct confrontation of the
Security Services Action Group
at City Hall; another coalition.is
leading a rally "affirming human
dignity and freedom" in a dif-
ferent part of the city; and still
others contend the rally should be
completely ignored.
THE Committee to Stop the
Nazis is planning a head-on coun-
ter-demonstration tomorrow, at
City Hall, but Committee
Spokesperson Al Nelson, stressed
the group is not seeking a violent
"We have no intention of
having any kind of a brawl,"
Nelson said. "In those situations,

people get hurt. Nobody wins."
At a press conference given by
the Committee yesterday, Nelson
said "The last thing we want is a
confrontation with police." The
Nazis must be opposed, he
claimed, because "if they are
successful, they will be back,
bigger and bolder."
NELSON also accused what he
called the "Ann Arbor liberal
establishment" of "Burying their
heads" in response to the march.
"The city is giving the Nazis a
platform from which they can
break out of their racist enclaves
and attack Ann Arbor and
