ALTHOUGH RENOVATIONS have emptied the Union's basement, it eventually will contain such new features as a
unisex hair salon, banks, a pizza parlor, and a salad bar. The project is running a month behind schedule.
Union renovations behind schedule
By STACY POWELL
The renovation of the Michigan
Union, a project that has been under
way since January, is about a month
behind schedule, according to the
The University Club Ballroom, ex-
pected to open at the beginning of
classes, will open in October, said
Frank Cianciola, director of the Union.
THE UNION basement, which once
housed a bookstore, a barbershop and
pinball machines, now has only an Ann
Arbor Bank and Trust Readyteller,
surrounded by a cavernous set of empty
rooms and corridors.
When the project is completed, the
basement will contain a unisex hair
salon, a post office, banks, an ice cream
stand, a pizza parlor and a salad bar,
The first floor renovations are still
scheduled for completion by the fall of
next year, he said.
ALTHOUGH the University Club
ballroom is closed, an umbrella-
speckled patio bar has been open all
summer, serving alcohol and snacks.
In addition, Cianciola said the Union
plans to put a -new student computer
center in the building's basement,
where the bowling alley was once
Union management is preparing to
accept construction bids for the com-
puter center, and it could be finished by
Jan. 1, 1983, Cianciola said.
THE renovations are progressing in
stages, with some projects, taking
precedence over others, said Chet Bar-
tosik, superintendant in charge of the
project. He said the University Club is
the most important project, followed by
the Union Stop, the building's all pur-
"We're maintaining essential ser-
vices," he said, adding that all existing
operations will stay at their present
locations until new spots are ready.
In once sense, the renovations are
even ahead of schedule.
THE BUILDING'S management had
originally planned a time lag in the
project, in order to allow the U-Cellar to
move to a new location in the Union's
basement. The U-Cellar instead moved
to a new location on the corner of
Division and West Liberty Streets, thus
giving the Union six extra months for
renovations, Cianciola explained.
Because of this loose schedule, the
month delay should not cost the Union a
significant amount of money, Cianciola
In spite of the sawdust, plywood,
paint cans and other signs of cnstruc-
tion, students seem to be taking advan-
tage of the Union's services.
JORDAN Schreier, an employee of
the Campus Information Center,
located on the Union's first floor, said
"even with the U-Cellar gone, the
amount of (student) traffic is much
greater than before."
Said Heather ,Childs, another CIC
employee: "We've been crazy busy.
It's about as busy as it always is this
time of year."
Betty Torres, a clerk at the Union
Stop, said "The last couple of days
we've been very busy . . . really
packed." The Union Stop sells
Univesity of Michigan items, such as
jackets, T-shirts and Wolverine
Jeffrey Sotman, who was using the
revamped information desk, said "I
think they (the workers) are going a bit
slow. I thought they'd be done by now."
Friends of a University
psychology professor who commit-
ted suicide this summer have
established a memorial fund in his
name to help graduate scholars.
The fund, which will award out-
standing graduate work in
psychology each year, was created
in memory of Prof. Philip Brick-
man, who fell to his death from the
Tower Plaza apartments on William
Street last May.
The idea for the fund came from
Brickman's father, who worked with
psychology Prof. Jeffrey Paige to
establish the fund, said Prof. Cam-
mille Wortman, another of Brick-
man's former colleagues.
The fund, which Wortman said
was already growing, will be used to
provide grants each year to one
graduate psychology student who
prepares an outstanding Master's
Brickman, who graduated with
honors from Harvard University
and the University of Michigan, was
director of the Center for Group
Dynamics at the University Institute
for Social Research.

Senate saves aid by overriding vetof
(Continued from Page 1)4
The new - and unexpected - funds
will require the University to revise its
financial aid packages, forcing them to
renotify students who may be eligible
for more money, Butts said.
In the BEOG program, the increase
will alter the grant's payment schedule,
with most of the funds being awarded to
students at the lowest income levels,
Butts said. The additional SEOG funds
could possibly be awarded to students
entering the University during either
winter or spring/summer term.
Both of Michigan's Democratic
Senators Carl Levin and Donald Riegle
voted to override the veto.
