WARSAW, Poland- Angry workers
fought riot police in Gdansk and mar-
ched on Communist Party headquar-
ters in the Baltic port yesterday after
an estimated 10,000 shipyard workers
struck for the second day to protest the
ban on Solidarity, witnesses said.
They said police dispersed about 1,000
people who had rallied outside the
shipyard, then fired tear gas, water
cannon and smoke bombs when the
crowd regrouped and surged toward

Student govt
plans protests
of budget cuts

By ROB FRANK
Student government leaders say they
are planning the first well-organized
student resistance to University budget
plans and will unleash their offensive at
tomorrow's Regents' meeting.
A student rally outside the Ad-
ministration Building tomorrow will be
the beginning, organizers say, of a
comprehensive movement against ad-
ministrators' plans to reorder the'
University's budget.
MEMBERS OF the Michigan Student
Assembly - a major force behind the
planned protests - met last night to lay
out their strategies for combatting ad-
ministrator's plans.
Students have rallied occasionally in,
the past against the administration's

"smaller but better" budget plans, but
planners of tomorrow's rally insist it is
only the beginning of an ongoing
protest.
Already preparing for the rally, MSA
members have spent the week collecting
signatures on petitions questioning the
University's - budget plans, in which
some programs are cut back to give
more money to others. Student gover-
nment leaders said yesterday the
petitioning was planned to alert studeri-
ts to problems in the budget and to the
upcoming protests against it.
BESIDES rallying on Regents Plaza
tomorrow, students say they hope to
pack the Regents' meeting with
speakers opposed to current budget
plans. Julie Gittleman, an MSA vice

Despite persistent worries about cutbacks, Univer-
sity administrators this week unveil a record-,
breaking budget to the Regents.
The University's General Fund budget, which
Regents will be asked to approve at their meeting
tomorrow, is $20.1 million bigger than last year,
totaling a record $282,480,000.
MOST OF that new money came from this year's
15-percent tuition hike, which alone will add $12.7
million to University coffers. The budget also was
0.upped $1 million when an anticipated enrollment drop
of 800 students failed to materialize, and enrollment
fell by only 364 students.
The proposed budget includes a controversial plan

to boost the salaries of University faculty and staff
members. The budget calls for an extra $5 million in
raises to be shared by the University's 2,600 faculty
members, while its 13,000 stafftworkers would split up
$2 million. The merit-based pay plan has angered
many University secretaries and clerks, who claim
that they should receive raises proportionate to those
given to professors.
BUT VICE President for Academic Affairs Billy
Frye, who authored the plan, said there is no room in
this "stringent" budget for larger pay boosts for staff
members. He pointed out that the $136,236,000 the
state gave the University this year is actually $1.5
million less than expected.
University officials also insisted that the $20.1

million increase in the budget this year is deceiving.
They .say the budget is not really that much larger,
but that it appears so because some money-mainly
$3 million in Health Service fees-is included in the
budget this year for the first time.
Action on the University's budget, which is usually
approved in September, was delayed until this month
because the exact amount of state appropriations
was not know at the time of last month's Regents'
meeting.
Late last month, the state legislature approved a 5
percent increase in appropriations to the University,
but that just barely offset a $7.3-million cut in last
year's appropriation.

Bomb
threat
in Grad
a hoax
By BARRY WITT
A bomb threat forced about 50 em-
ployees at the Graduate Library to
evacuate yesterday morning after the
University's security department
received a note saying a bomb had been
placed in the building's basement.
The Ann Arbor Police Department's
bomb squad was called in to inspect a
suspicious box, but no explosive was
found, police said.
AT ABOUT 9 a.m. an unidentified
man handed a folded note containing
the bomb threat to a University public
safety officer outside the safety depar-
tment's offices at 525 Church St., a
security official said.
By the time the officer opened and
read the note, the man had fled, said
Walter Stevens, University safety
director.
The note said a bomb was in a box in
the library's east side basement mail
room, according to Stevens.
After University security and Ann
Arbor Police officers discovered a box
in the described location, the bomb
squad was brought in and employees in
two lower level library basements were
evacuated, Stevens said.
The employees were allowed back in-
to their offices by 11 a.m..
The officer who received the note
described thehman as a 25-30 year old
caucasian with a mustache.

Japan'spri-me minister to retire

From AP and UPI
TOKYO - Prime Minister Zenko
Suzuki, his re-election next month vir-
tually assured, bowed yesterday to
mounting criticism of his economic
*policies and announced he would not
seek a second term.
The 71-year-old politician, dubbed
"Suzuki Who" by the Japanese press
when he rose to power in 1980 from
relative obscurity, summoned top
leaders of his ruling Liberal-
Democratic Party to his office to an-

nounce his decision.
NO CHANGE is expected in the
government's foreign policy. Nor is
any change expected in the long-term
economic policy of promoting exports
and restricting imports.
Senior party leaders are scheduled to
meet tomorow to discuss choosing the
next party president. In Japan's
parliamentary system of government,
the president of the majority party is
assured of being elected prime minister
by Parliament.
Suzuki had been assured of re-

election at the November caucus. But
his approval rating with the public had
dropped to only 16 percent in one recent
opinion poll because of his gover-
nment's failure to lift the economy out
of a recession.
IN THE PAST month he was openly
attacked by two LDP faction leaders,
former prime ministers Takeo Miki and
Takeo Fukuda, a sign of strife in a par-
ty that prefers to keep its disputes
private.

finally has a new chief fundraiser.
The Regents will be asked
tomorrow to approve Jon Cosovich,
now an official at Stanford Univer-
sity, as vice president for University
relations and development.
Cosovich, 47, fills the spot vacated
by former University Vice President
Michael Radock, who announced his
resignation in January, 1981.
UNIVERSITY President Harold
Shapiro assigned a search commit-
tee to find a replacement for Radock
soon after the former vice
president's announcement.
But the list of names that panel
handed the administration late last

Early this year, Shapiro himself
took over the search process, and
Cosovich was approached for the job
only last February.
LIPSCHUTZ attributed the ad-
ministration's difficulty in finding a
replacement to a professional field
that "just isn't full of qualified
people."
Cosovich was chosen from a list of
four or five candidates who visited
campus this past summer, Lip-
schutz said. Once in Ann Arbor, they
met with the original search com-
mittee members and other ad-
ministrators.

then, he said, two bales of marijuana wrapped in plastic
floated by. The two men floated on th'e bales for another day
until they were rescued by a passing fishing boat off the
Florida Keys. Coast Guard officials and boat captains said
that this story is possible because marijuana bales are
periodically thrown overboard by smugglers near the
Florida Keys.0

" 1951-approximately four cases of empty beer bottles
were stolen from a University greenhouse in Nichols Ar-
boretum, according to Superintendent of the Arboretum,
C.J. Moody. The robbery, presumably committed in order
to claim deposits on the bottles, is only a drop in the bucket
compared to the "two or three truckloads" of bottles taken
out every Monday morning by University employees.
