budget cut
defers less

with wire reports
LANSING - A revised state budget-
cutting order reducing the amount of
state appropriations to be withheld
from the University was approved
yesterday, but a University official
predicted late last night that increases
in next year's state appropriation
would be "significantly less" than the
14 percent originally anticipated.
Vice President for State Relations
Richard Kennedy said from Lansing
last night that the revised order from
Gov. William Milliken will allow the
University to receive half of the $38
million originally scheduled for
deferment until October.
BUT KENNEDY added that in-
creases in next year's appropriations
are not likely to reach the 14 percent
mark originally called for by Milliken
last month.
"They are looking at revised recom-
mendations for next year that are
significantly less than 14 percent,"

Kennedy said. He said details hinged
on legislative approval of other tax
proposals presently in the works.
"There are so -many pieces to the
puzzle," he said. "At this point in time
it is just too uncertain which pieces
have to be put in place in what order for
everything to work."
Kennedy added that the State
Building Authority reaffirmed its
financial commitment to the University
Hospital 'Replacement Project yester-
day. He said, however, that planners
will continue to explore alternative
sources of financing until the outcome
of the budget package is known later
THE EXECUTIVE order cut, which
was approved within minutes of its an-
nouncement by Milliken, totals over
$308 million. While that figure makes
the order the largest in Michigan's
history, it is significantly less than the
controversial $450 million order
Milliken proposed last month.

A McGreaham-Siwik Committee was formed by
the Bursley Board of Governors last January to work
on the scholarship fund, according to Pete Collinson,
a resident advisor and member of the Board.
The fund developed with the cooperation of Brian
Barnier, co-president of the BOG, and Edward
Salowitz, director of research and development in the
University Housing Office.
"BRIAN APPARENTLY lived on one of the
corridors (of the victims) and was deeply affected by
the event," Salowitz said. "He came into the office
one day and said that he thought the students wanted
to do something long-range to preserve the memory
of Doug and Ward.

LONDON- British Defense
Secretary John Nott drew a line around
the disputed Falkland Islands and said
any Argentine warships that cross it
from next Monday on "will be treated
as hostile and are liable to be attacked
by British forces."
Nott told the House of Commons last
night the 200-mile "maritime exclusion
zone" around the South Atlantic ar-
chipelago would become effective at 4
a.m. Monday GMT-11 p.m. Sunday
EST-and "our first naval action will
be intended to deny the Argentine for-
ces on the Falklands the means to rein-
force and re-supply from the
mainland," he said.
THE DEFENSE secretary said the
exclusion zone applied to "any Argen-
tine warships and Argentine naval

Meanwhile, declaring his nation
"does not appease dictators," Britain's
new Foreign Secretary Francis Pym
vowed to use force to free the Falkland
Islands from Argentine occupation if a
negotiated settlement is impossible.
"WE HAVE dispatched a large task
force and are confident it is fully
adequate for its task," Pym said as
Conservative Party members cheered
his speech opening a House of Com-
mons debate on the crisis.
"We intend to see that the Falkland
Islands are freed from occupation and
returned to British administration at
the earliest possible moment," Pym

there is an error in Einstein's general theory of relativity.
Einstein's theory explains why there is a certain tiny fluc-
tiona, called a precession in the orbit of the planet Mer-
cury. Until now, Einstein's calculation of this precession
had agreed almost exactly with observations made by
astronomers. The Arizona reserchers say, however, that
the effect of the sun on Mercury's orbit is slightly different
from what Einstein had thought, and when that difference
is taken into account Einstein's theory no longer agrees
with astronomical observations. Philip Goode, an associate
