Students protest lack of cable TV

By PINA SBROCCA
Several West Quad residents, unhap-
,y that their dormitory is one of the few
which still does not have cable ,
television, last week sent a notice
irging other residents of the dorm to let
4heir discontent be heard.
Bob Jacobs, a resident of West
Quad's Williams House, headed the
ive urging students to complain to the
Ouilding's maintenance manager,
4ohn Schaffer, abut the delay in cable

hook-up.
"EVERYBODY else has it, we should
too," Jacobs said. "The installation of
cable television in the dorms is a
University service that comes out of a
student's room and board (fees). We
thought it was unfair that all students
pay for it and some of us can't use it,"
he said.
But according to Alan Levy, the
dorm's building director, the students
chose the wrong target. Schaffer isn't

responsible for the delay, Levy said.
The problem is that "the job at West
Quad just turned out to be a little more
technically cumbersome than the
others," he said.
The University and Ann Arbor
Cablevision have been working
together for more than a year to bring
cable -TV to all of the dorms. In-
stallation was supposed to be finished
by last September, according to Levy,
but some dorms didn't receive the ser-
vice until the end of Fall term. West
Quad, Betsy Barbour, Helen Newberry,
and the North Campus dorms still are
not hooked up.

"I CAN understand students being
upset. They've been paying for it since
last year',' said Ruth Addis, Stockwell's
building director. All central campus
dorms have been wired she said, but
failure to get the conversion boxes from
the cable company has caused the
delay.
"I understand their concern, but the
problem is that I still don't know how
many boxes are needed," maintenance
manager Schaffer said yesterday.
He said he had received about a dozen
complaints from students who were
urged to call him.

Bryant Clinic closes:
victim of federal cuts

By KRISTIN STAPLETON
One of Ann Arbor's four low-income
medical clinics has been forced to shut
its doors by a lack of funds, according
to clinic officials. The Bryant Com-
munity Clinic will close tomorrow, af-
ter providing five years of health care
service to Ann Arbor's low-income
families.
"We're another victim of
Reaganomics, so to speak," said Dr.
Michael Coffman, director of the clinic.
Coffman said shrinking funds from
federal development programs has
hurt the clinic's budget.
THE 'CLINIC has been operating in
the Ann Arbor area since 1977 but only
recently moved to its location behind
the Georgetown Mall on Packard Raod.
Coffman said the move may have
hurt the clinic. "It had been a neigh-
borhood clinic. When it moved, it lost a
lot of those patients," he said.
Poor economic condidtions in general
didn't help, he said. The patient load
had dropped because more people wait
until they are very ill before seeking
medical assistance," Coffman ex-
plained.
Even a last-ditch effort last week
City Council - allocation of $8,00 to let
the board of directors complete its fun-

draising efforts - was not enough to
save the clinic.
"THE CRUX of the issue is that we
have exhausted all our long-term fun-
ding possibilities," Coffman said.
"There's hardly a trick in the book we
didn't try."
Claire Noland, a member of the
clinic's medical staff, said the clinic did
not have enough time to improve its
budget. She pointed out that increased
publicity had drawn more patients.
"We are doing better patient-wise, and
that means more money," Noland said.
"I do feel if we had six more weeks,
we Mould have kept going indefinitely,"
she said.
PATIENTS who have been visiting
the Bryant clinic can still find low-
income medical care in Ann Arbor, ac-
cording to Coffman. "There are, for-
tunately, alternatives for those people,'
Three clinics remain open in the area. -
"Patients will have a place to go,"
Coffman said. "Although they may not
find the continuity of care that they
found here.
It looks at this point that the other
clinics will survive.",
But Bryant's fate is irreversible, he
said. "Short of someone coming out of
the blue and saying 'Here's $50,000,'
we're going to close."

WENDY RAMPSON, PIRGIM's new campus coordinator, expresses con-
cern yesterday about a lack of funds and student interest.

PIRGIM hurt by cutbacks,
says group's new director

(Continued from Page 1)
terned with Common Cause-another
public interest group-last summer.
Rampson said she plans to put a great
deal of effort into getting more students
involved with PIRGIM. "They (studen-
ts) know what PIRGIM is," she said,
"but they're not really aware of what
PIRGIM does-that PIRGIM is fighting
against cuts in student aid."
PIRGIM members will address
freshperson orientation groups on a
larger scale this summer, according to

Rampson, to increase campus
awareness. Also, PIRGIM will ask
faculty members who have supported
the group in the past if representatives
can speak to their classes at the begin-
ning of the fall terrh.
Along with Rampson,,a new board of
directors will take over at PIRGIM at
the beginning of Spring Half-Term. At
that time, the expanded 11-member
board will review PIRGIMs task forces
to see, Rempson said, "where our
energy should be put."

Robert Tisch, Michigan's most vocal
tax reduction advocate, announced
earlier this, week he will run for the
governor's seat on an independent
ticket if he can collect the 19,000 needed
to qualify for the August primary.
Tisch, who until last Monday's an-
nouncement had been listed as a
Democratic candidate for governor,
said that running as an independent, he
will have more time to promote two
proposals which he hopes to get on the
November ballot.
THE SHIAWASSEE drain commissioner
said he has been wasting time on the
"political mish mash" part of the
gubernatorial campaign, when he could
be working on his "chief objective of
getting the two proposals on the ballot."
The first proposal would change
Michigan's legislature from full-time to

part-time. The second, informally dub-
bed ',Tisch Three," would reduce state
property taxes considerably.
Fueled by Gov. William Milliken's
recently proposed tax hikes,
Tisch-with his standing reputation for
pushing hard for tax cuts-was con-
sidered one of the front runners in the
Democratic race before his announ-
cement Monday.
One 1poll, conducted by Market
Opinion Research of Detroit, showed
Tisch with 24 percent.voter preference,
only two percentage points behind
leading Democratic candidate William
Fitzgerald.
Tisch said that if the Tisch Indepen-
dent Citizen Party cannot collect the
19,000 signatures needed to qualify for
the primary by the May 3 filing
deadline, he will run in the Democratic
primary.
