Emphasis
on grad
studies not
decreasmg
Frye says
By BARRY WITT
The upcoming review of the
Rackham graduate school should not be
interpreted as a decrease in the
University's emphasis on graduate
studies, the University's top budget
administrator said yesterday.
In the first official acknowledgement
of the latest in a series of budget
reviews, Vice President for Academic
Affairs Billy Frye said the review will
look for savings through administrative
changes and through eliminating
program duplications. Frye's com-
ments were part of a statement issued in
response to yesterday's report that
Rackham will be added to the list of
schools to be reviewed for major budget
cuts.
FRYE SAID the University's com-
mitment to graduate programs is "s
tronger than ever before" and that in-
creased support for graduate students
has been designated a "high priority"
need.
The Rackham review, which
probably will not begin until fall, is a
part of the University's five-year plan
for shifting $20 million of the general
fund budget to certain "high priority"
areas.
The Schools of Art, Education, and
Natural Resources will soon be
reviewed for major cutbacks or
elimination as a part of the five-year
plan. Elimination of the graduate
school is not a possibility, Frye said.
"The Rackham school's review five
years ago by a committee headed by
Prof. Gardner Ackley made a number
of recommendations, some of which
were implemented and some were not.
We ought to take another look at that
review to see if a greater degreeof
eficiency can be achieved in the
- University's programs and services,"
Frye stated.

N BRIEF
Compiled from-Associated Press and
United Press International reports
Teenager may be tried as adult
in Port Huron murder case
PORT HURON- Prosecutors said yesterday they will seek to have a 16-
year-old boy tried as an adult on first-degree murder charges in the slayings
of a mother and her four adopted children.
The boy,,,described as a "troublemaker," was taken into custody' Wed-
nesday hours after the five bodies were discovered at the victim's home
south of Yale. It was the third mass murder in Michigan in less than two
months.
Because he is a juvenile, the boy's name cannot be released unless he is
bound over to stand trial as an adult.
Authorities had to decide yesterday whether to charge the youth or release
him as required by law. Permission to keep him in custody was granted
during a 2 -hour hearing in juvenile court that was closed to the public and
news media.
U.S. deficit will top $100 billion
WASHINGTON- President Reagan conceded yesterday the federal
deficit will escede $100 billion for the first time this year and hit $101.9 billion
in 1983 under his embattled budget plan-assuming there is a strong
economic recovery this summer.
In a report updating budget estimates made just two months ago, the ad-
ministration raised its deficit estimates through 1987 by as much as $11
billion a year.
Officials said unforeseen costs, including payments to farmers suffering
Depression-like conditions, forced them to revise upward their projections of
the deficit-already a prime source of political trouble for the ad-
ministration.
The deficit for fiscal 1982, which ends Sept. 30, was re-estimated at $100.5
billion, up from a $98.6 billion estimate in February. The estimated deficit
for 1983 is $10.4 billion higher than February's forecast of $91.5 billion, and
the deficit for 1984 grew by $10.9 billion to $93.8 billion.
The worsening deficit outlook, prepared by the Office of Management and
Budget, was still optimistic relative to internal government forecasts. The
administration decided not to take into account recent negative economic
indicators that many economists believe could push the 1983 deficit above
$120 billion.
U.S. delegation warns rightists
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador- A U.S. congressional delegation warned
Salvadoran rightists yesterday that El Salvador's new government must
remain moderate if American aid is to continue. House Majority Leader
James Wright (D-Tex.) denied the United States was dictating terms to the
politicians trying to form the Central American country's next government.
However, Salvadoran rightists who met with the Americans said their'
closed-door sessions were full of "arm twisting and hard hitting,
Wright told reporters at the end of a two-day visit that the new government
to be created by the constitutional assembly elected March 28 must take four
steps to continue receiving U.S. aid for its battle against Marxist-led
guerrillas:
" Bring together, "proportionally," all parties in the election.
" Hold presidential elections in less than two years.
" Support a- program of human rights iinprovements and liberal changes;
such as the nationalization of large farms and banks, adopted by the-;
military-Christian Democratic junta in early 1980.
" Offer "a sincere amnesty" to guerrillas and their political allies.
U.S. offers to restore aid.
WASHINGTON- The United States is, offering to reinstate economic aid
to Nicaragua if its leftist Sandinista government cuts the flow of arms t.
guerrillas in El Salvador, U.S. officials said yesterday.
The eight-point plan for normalizing relations was presented in Managua
on Thursday by U.S. Ambassador, Anthony Quainton as part of U.S. effort to t
get a dialogue going between the two estranged governmnents.
Details of the proposals were provided by a State Department official who
said that the first point-cessation of Nicaraguan support for armed in-
surgencies in neighboring countries-is the most important to the United
States.

Reinforcement has been continuous
since the April 2 occupation, and
newspapers quoted military sources as
saying 9,000 soldiers would be in place
by the time the main part of the British
fleet arrived in 10 days.
BRITAIN HAS hinted some of its
nuclear submarines already are in the
area, and said advanced elements of the
40-ship convoy, now reported bucking
heavy seas off the West African coast,
probably would near the Falklands
sometime this weekend.
Some of the estimated 120,000 Argen-
tine reservists mobilized earlier this-
week began rejoining the ranks, with
urgent orders to report going to those
from a mechanized infantry brigade
base in the capital and an artillery

regiment in Buenos Aires province.
Authorities in Mar del Plata, on the
Atlantic coast 25 miles south of here,
broadcast air raid instructions. They
said residents, upon hearing the siren,
should keep calm, "get under a bed or
table away from windows and near the
wall, lie face own covering your head
with your arms and keep your eyes shut
tight."
THE FALKLANDS are home to 1,800
people - the great majority of them
British-descended - who over the
years repeatedly have expressed their
desire to remain British.
A spokesman for the Bahai faith in
Chicago, Douglas Moore, said 21
American Bahais, including nine
children, are on the islands.

Haig said in London Thursday he was
"impressed by the firm determination"
of the British government in the
dispute. Britain insists on compliance
with last week's U.N. Security Council
resolution calling on Argentina to with-
draw its forces.
Costa Mendez has said everything is
negotiable except sovereignty," but a
unilateral Argentine withdrawal
without British recognition of Argen-
tina's right to the islands is considered
virtually impossible.
"The;government is not willing to
falter and renounce its historical rights
to the Malvinas nor withdraw from its
own land, reconquered at the cost of
lives of the nation's sons," Galtieri said
earlier this week.

College book ranks 'U' classes high, social life low

(Continued from Page 1)
JULE GROVE, another LSA junior,
agreed that the guide is fairly accurate
- in its review of the University, but said
it's misleading about student access to
professors "It talks about how
prestigious the staff is, but you rarely
get taught by them. You really don't
reap the benefits of these professors un-
til you are a junior or senior," she said.
z Chris Bego, an LSA senior in Coma
:puter Science, said she too thinks
students have to work hard to receive
any of the benefits mentioned in the
guide. She said the guide is better
though than most. "All they give you is
statistics, kut when you choose a
" college, you're choosing a lifestyle for
the next four years-and statistics don't
have anything to do with that, she
b said.

But the University's Director of Ad-
*missions, Cliff Sjogren, said that
although the University did come out
looking reasonably well, he thinks the
guide did a great disservice to many
colleges. "I really question his ap-
proach and research methods," he
said. "'m going to discourage my staff
from using it as a reference with any
potential students. This lowers my
opinion of the Times. It's really unfor-
tunate because they've always done
such excellent reporting on education,"
he said.
IN FACT, the Times' publisher has
announced that he will be taking the
-Times' name out of the title. "The name
will still.be on the cover of the book, but
will not be part of the title," said,
Leonard Harris, director of corporate

relations for the Times.
Harris said the Times wants to make
it clear that the Guide is Fiske's opinion
and not that of the Times. "It became
clear that the star rating system was
being highly emphasized and is con-
troversial. It's a book that nobody is
neutral about," he said.
The publisher has received complain-
ts from about six colleges so far, said
Harris, and some of them are about fac-
tual errors.
THE REVIEWS of Syracuse University
and Michigan State University con-
tained faulty information, and officials
at the two schools are upset. Professor
David Bennett, in the History Depar-
tment at Syracuse, said there are
errors about the size of the library, the
teaching of classes (the Guide says that

T

(tutb txrbp 'eruioai

students usually deal with teaching-
assistants and not professors), and the
type of student body attending the
school.
"He knows little about the univer-
sitites that he writes about and the book
would be dismissed as a bad joke if it
didn't have the Times' name on it," he
said. Bennett wrote a letter to the
publisher, and the errors will be correc-
ted in the next edition. Harris said
tearsheets have been sent to all of the
universities so that errors in fact and
judgement can be corrected.
1Michigan State University didn't fare
too badly in the star ratings - with
three for academics and quality of life
and four for social life - but it received'
what one MSU official called a
"derogatory and inaccurate" review.
Moses Turner, vice president for
student affairs, said the MSU review is
full of factual errors as well as unflat-
tering remarks.
"THE BOOK is way off base. It
represents little effort to get the facts
and it's unfortunate that it carries the
name of the Times because that gives it
clout that it would never carry on its
own," Turner said.
The guide states that MSU's nursing
and humanities departments have been
phased out and that the veterinary
school is suffering. In fact, the schools
have been slated for cuts, but were left
intact. Turner said the guide's claim
that freshpersons and sophomores have
very little access to professors is also
false. "For an institution our size, the
freslipersons have vey good access to
professors. It's greater here than at
other universities," he said.
MSU WASN'T the only university to
receive a critical assessment, however.
The University of Kentucky, Univer-
sity of Rhode Island, and Auburn
University didn't receive very
favorable reviews either. Kentucky got
one star in academics, and according to
the Guide is "a wise choice for anyone
who wants a college education without
working to hard to get it. If you like
basketball, then you're in clover as well
as blue grass." The Guide says the
"students are looking for a good time at
this school. An education along the way
is a welcome bonus."
