Milliken to
reduce cuts
aimed at 'U'

By JANET RAE
A revised executive order from Gov.
William Milliken to be announced
tioday will reduce the amount of state
appropriations to be withheld from the
University, state officials confirmed
yesterday.
Exact figures for the revised order
were not available yesterday.
However, one official indicated a
possible reduction range of one-quarter
to one-half of the $136 million originally
scheduled to be withheld from the
state's universities and colleges.
A BUDGET balancing plan proposed
by Milliken last month called for any
withheld funds to be repaid in addition
to next year's appropriations. The
University is scheduled to receive a 14
percent boost in funding on top of that
repayment plan.
An executive order spending cut must
be approved by both the House
Taxation Committee and Senate Finan-

ce Committe before going into effect.
Last month's order was tabled by the
Senate three weeks ago.
University officials were not aware of
the plans to revise last month's
proposal. Vice President for State
Relations Richard Kennedy could not
be reached in Lansing for comment.
DAVID MURPHY, university and
college analyst for the Senate Fiscal
Agency, comfirmed that a reduction in
th executive order is being planned. He
said no details had been sent to his of-
fice as of closing time yesterday.
"They're keeping a real tight wrap on
this apparently," Murphy said. "I
don't know what number they're
floating around overbthere (the State
Capitol)."
Rep. Perry Bullard ,(D-Ann Arbor)
said he was not aware of any particular
announcement scheduled for today but
said a revised order "may be announ-
ced as part of a bargaining situation."

LONDON (UPI) - A defiant Prime
Minister Margaret Thatcher'refused to
resign yesterday, fighting off an uproar
in Parliament over disclosures her
government knew 10 days in advance'
that Argentina was going to invade the
Falkland Islands.
"No. Now is the time for strength and
resolution," Thatcher told Parliament,
shouting to make herself heard over
opposition cries for her resignation.

Carrington and two deputy ministers,

newspapers that Britain had advance
knowledge of the Argentine invasion in
the South Atlantic.

CRISP: A model for others

* Wintry weather
may be repeated

By DAVID SPAK
Third of a three part series
As little as eight years ago, students used to go to'
Waterman Gymnasium (now the empty field next to
the Chemistry Building) to run from table to table in
search of departments withcourses that would fit
their schedule.

From AP and UPI
The joys of spring were con-
spicuously absent in Michigan yester-
day.
A spring storm that howled out of the
West buried about two-thirds of the
Lower Peninsula under four to 13 inches
of snow. Wind gusts up to 40 mph piled
up hug& drifts and cut driving visibility
to zero at times.
THE BLIZZARD, which swept from
Ohio through New England, brought
travel to a virtual standstill in cities
such as Boston and New York, where a
snowstorm of such ferocity had never
hit this time of year.

The National Weather Service war-
ned that another storm of similar
proportions could be heading toward
Michigan. Forecasters said it could hit
the Midwest tonight and tomorrow if it
follows its present track in the Rockies.
The National Weather Service said New
York City had 10-inch snowfalls in April
1915 and 1975, but neither qualified as a
blizzard.
The snowstorm was blamed for the
crash of a light plane in Russell, Pa.,
that killed two people. Five had died as
the storm passed through the Midwesy
the day before, dumping snow a foot
deep in many cities.

CRISPIN.G

according to Associate Registrar for Personnal and
Operations Douglas Woolley.
When administrators at the University introduced
a new registration system seven years ago, they were
hoping to "make registration as comfortable as
possible," Woolley said.
The new system would allow instantaneous
registration, as well as course additions and drops
because it is "on-line" all the time to the main com-
puter.
SINCE ITS implementation, CRISP (Computer
Registration Involving Student Participation") has
eliminated much of the chaos, shortened the lines,
and furthered Woolley's goal of making registration
as comfortable as possible.
And very quickly, CRISP has become very popular
with administrators at other schools who are looking
to improve their own registration systems.I
The University of Iowa, Purdue University and
Ball State University, to name a few, have already
put in place systems very similar to CRISP. The
University of Minnesota and Northwestern Univer-

sity are also on their way to doing the same.
"WE LOOKED at the (University's) system and
decided to put it in," said University of Iowa
Registrar Al Cox. Iowa did, however, change the way
students go through the terminal center.
Instead of going to specialized terminal operators
as University {students do, Iowa students have
academic advisors enter the course information into
the system. "We feel we get better academic coun-
seling that way,'.' Cox said.
INDIANA IS in the midst of changing their
registration system, although they are not going to a
system like the University's, according to Indiana
University Associate Registrar Roland Cote.
Although they will use an on-line system, Indiana
will use computer scan cards and updated equipment
to handle those cards as opposed to using computer
terminals like the University uses, Cote said.
This will replace the "bear of a registration in
place since 1947" at Indiana, he said. "We use a
See CRISP, Page 2

The cards acquired from the department would be
the student's reservation for a particular course, and
when the cards ran out at the table, the course was
closed. There was no seniority system, no
alphabetical rotation scheme, and a lot of chaos.
"STUDENTS USED to camp out in front of Water-
man at about 6 a.m. every morning" of registration,

Riegle
urges
students
to fight
aid cuts
By BILL SPINDLE
Students should "mobilize" in a fight
against the Reagan Administration's
proposed financial aid budget cuts,
Senator Don Riegle (D-Mich.) said on
campus yesterday.
The connection between the proposed
student loan cuts and the massive
defense budget build-up has been
largely ignored and students should
become aware of the problem, Riegle
told an informal gathering at Good
Time Charley's Bar and Grill.
THE REAGAN Administration has
promised to cut jhe budget, but instead
has merely transferred financial aid
funds such as the Pell Grant and
workstudy to the defense department,
Riegle said.
"The Reagan Adinistration is
trying to loot programs (like

Salvador
guerrillas
launch
new attack

SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador (UPI)-
Guerrillas launched a rocket and mor-
tar barrage on the provincial capital of
San Vicente yesterday in what leftists
sources said was a drive to obscure the
political defeat they suffered in the
recent elections.
The six-hour attack capped a 24-hour
period in which rebels also raided
another provincial capital, blew up a
bridge, overran an army outpost and
cut two key highways and phone lines to
nine towns.
LEFTIST sources in Mexico City said
the attacks were part of a drive to mask
the success of the March 28 con-

stitutional assembly elections that
drew 1.2 million voters despite guerrilla
threats to kill those who cast ballots.
"The guerrillas know the elections
are being regarded as a success, so
they are trying to replace it in the front
pages with news of their attacks," said
one source with close ties to the
guerrilla movement.
The rebel Radio Venceremos denied
any rebel responsibility for the Monday
slaying of David Quinteros, a deputy-
elect from the far rightist Nationalist
Republican Alliance, and blamed it on
"fighting within the right."

The new look for spring
EY MOM, what's that naked lady from Playboy
doing in the middle of the new Monkey-Ward
catalogue? The Joseph Howard family of Min-
eapolis caught the latest in un-fashion in Mon-
tgomery Ward's spring and summer book which reveals allj
of Playboy's March centerfold playmate, Karen Witter,
tucked snugly between pages 80 and 81. "There she was,

stretch denim jeans. The Howards have a son, Mark, 16,
who missed the centerfold when he first went through the
catalog. However, son Edmund, a student at the University
of Minnesota, found the fold-out page. Mrs. Howard said,
"It's funny-looking because you open it and the last thing
you expect to see is a naked lady." Ward's representatives
went to the people's homes in the Twin Cities and offered to
make the exchange. One family accepted and the other
decided to keep the catalog, Thorne said. El

were the victims of a phone company computer foul-up. The
