The Horace Rackham School of
Graduate Studies is completely unique
among the University's schools and
colleges. Although it administers the
academic programs 'of about 6,500
students, Rackham is a school without
any teaching faculty members.
Graduate students take classes and
do independent work in the various
schools, colleges, and institutes of the
University, while Rackham watches
over the more than 100 separate
graduate programs offered.
ALL GRADUATE programs leading
to Ph.D. and M.A. degrees and some
other professional doctoral and
master's programs, are supervised by
the Graduate School.
The school's primary function is to
maintain the high quality of the
graduate programs through the efforts
of its executive board-a committee of.
faculty members, students, and ad-
ministrators who meet every week to
review the school's activities.
THE SCHOOL, which has an annual
budget of about $900,000, carries out its
functions through several offices,
which include:

colleg es
" The Graduate Admissions Office,
responsible for coordinating graduate
admissions, providing foreign ad-
missions services, and conducting
studies to contribute to admission
policy development;
" The Office of Student Affairs, which
assists students and departments by
administering the school's support ser-
vices, such as fellowships, minority and
women's affairs, and academimc ap-
* The Graduate Academic Records
Office, responsible for maintaining the
standards set by the Executive Com-
mittee; informing students, faculty,
and staff members of the school's
policies and procedures; keeping the
academic, records of all Rackham
graduate students;
* The Office of Non-Academic Career
Counseling and Placement, designed to
help students make the transition from
the academic environment into the
"real world."
It is somewhere within this
bureaucracy that the University's cen-
tral administration will look to make

- WASHINGTON (UPI) - Assistant
U.S. Housing Secretary Stephen
Ballinger enjoys a reputation as a
prankster, but even his best friends
could not have guessed he would start a
food fight reminiscent of the movie'
Animal House.
Some participants say the hijinks at a
ga thering of top federal officials
esday morning at the Department of
Jlousing and Urban Development all
Wzjs good, clean fun.
OTHERS WHO attended speculate
privately that Bollinger was venting
tensions over policy matters when he
&Anmed chocolate cake with vanila

icing into the face of Deputy Under-
secretary Dan Hughes.
Hughes promptly retaliated in kind.
Before it ended, several top officials
joined the food fight that kindled
memories of the movie antics of the late
comedian John Belushi.
Hughes, deputy undersecretary for
field coordination, joked sheepishly
that as many as half a dozen officials
"may have eaten cake" - but not on
their plates.
Bollinger and Hughes had a pleasant
meeting minutes after the party, and
insisted they were horsing around.

fight for cleanwater


WASHINGTON (AP)- Seven en-
vironmental organizations accused the
Reagan administration yesterday of
trying to cripple the national effort to
curb water pollution by seeking to gut
current law.
The groups released a copy of a
proposed bill the Environmental
Protection Agency is considering
presenting to Congress as the ad-
ministration position for the upcoming
debate, on reauthorizing the Clean
Water Act.
The environmentalists said the
measure represented a "cynical at-

tempt to undermine one of the country's
best environmental laws." They ex-
pressed particular unhappiness with a
proposal to scrap national standards to
require some 60,000 industrial sources
to treat their wastes before they are
discharged into municipal sewer
systems. '
BUT THEY also said the measure
would allow the government to delay
for several years a program for con-
trolling toxic chemicals being dumped
into the water, double the length of time
between reviews of a plant's pollution
permit and block the government from
regulating pollution from dams.

programs) at all."
The Rackham school, which ad-
ministers the academic programs for
the University's 6,500 graduate studen-
ts, is operated on a yearly 'budget of
about $900,000.
'Sauve said Rackham Dean Sussman
played an instrumental role in the
decision to review the graduate school.
Sussman, who is also a member of the
Budget Priorities Committee, "was the
first one to agree 'yes, let's have a
review now, we're better off with a
review,' " Sauve said.
SUSSMAN SAID the committee's
review would focus on the school's ad-
ministration, particularly of ad-
missions and fellowships.
Rackham is one of a number of
schools, colleges, and programs up for
review in the first round of cutbacks for
the Five Year Plan. Administrators
said they hope to cut back about $4
million of the total $20 million goalEby
July 1 so that that money can be spent
on other priorities, like faculty salaries,
research, and other, faster-growing
academic areas.
Rackham was reviewed five years
ago by a University committee under
the leadership of economics Prof. Gar-
dner Ackley. The findings of that com-
mittee, dubbed the "Ackley Report,"
identified several areas within the
graduate school that were deficient and
suggested several plans for shoring
them up.
SAUVE SAID the current review of
Rackham was proposed partly because
a number of the Ackley Report recom-
mendations have not been implemen-
ted. "The review of the Rackham
School is just to see where we've come

in the past five years (since the report)
and where we'll go in the next five
years," Sauve said. "And I think
faculty and students have a right to
know what its (the graduate school's)
role is going to be."
The Budget Priorities Committee will
be examining the recommendations of
the Ackley Report, Sauve added, to
determine "which ones have been
carried out, which ones have not been
carried out, and do we still want to
carry them out."
But, Sauve emphasized, Rackham,
unlike the schools of art, education, and
natural resources, is not being
reviewed for very major cutbacks or
