Art school bravely battles budget review

cinemagraphy instruction.
LARKIN, however, said he does not
believe the school was at a severe
disadvantage. "We'll work within the
boundaries that we have and do a damn
good job of it," he said.
Until 1974, the art school was part of
a School of Architecture and Design,
which no longer exists. But budget
shortages or no, the idea of combining
the entire school with another college or
reassigning its design departments to
other University schools doesn't sit well
with members of its community.
"It would diminish the quality of
what we do and what is done in ar-
chitecture," Bayliss said. "It would
take us back to where we were eight
years ago.
"The advantage of being in one
school and being able to 'cross the bor-
ders' would be lost," he said.
STUDENTS IN the school only major
in art, Bayliss explained. "We don't
have departments because we want to
encourage cross-fertilization. If design

departments were realigned it would be
harder for painting students to get into
design classes, and for design students
to take printmaking."
Bayliss argued that eliminating the
school's graduate program would not
be an effective cost-cutting measure
either. There is virtually no additional
cost in operating the graduate
program, he said.
In fact, he argued, it would mean less
money coming into the school through
The review committee has been in
close contact with Bayliss and the
school's governing board, soliciting in-
formation from members of Ann Ar-

bor's art community, and bringing
"experts" in to tour the school.
Review committee chairman John
D'Arms said all those who have been
contacted about the review have been
enthusiastic about contributing. "I
can't say how many (letters) there's
been, but there's been great response,"
he said.
D'Arms said he expects the review to
be completed by the end of Fall Term.
"We're very much aware the longer we
take, the more awkward it is for
everyone involved," he said. But
D'Arms added the committee does not
want to sacrifice quality for time.
And art school students plan to use
that time to its fullest.
"MY ADVICE to them has been not to
go beating up on people and creating a
big ruckus," Bayliss said. He has,
however, urged students to write letters
to the review committee and to contact
anyone else they feel would be influen-
tial. If they don't, Bayliss said, "it
might, in fact, be interpreted as indif-

Part of the students' effort, in ad-
dition to an MSA-sponsored petition
drive protesting the reviews of their
school as well as the schools of natural
resources and education, will be an
awareness campaign.
"We just want to let the whole
University know what Frye and the
University (administration) are trying
to do," Keenan said. "A lot of people
just don't know.
"It would be devastating if they cut
even 10 percent. I can't see any room
for that much of a cut," he argued. "It
would be a pretty sneaky way of getting
rid of the art school."
There will be a review hearing for the
school today from 7:30 to 10 p.m. at
Rackham Amphitheater.

"There's a fair amount of political
pressure in the area of biomedical
research. They're (medical research
projects) emotional kinds of things that
touch everyone very acutely."
Various health agencies and foun-
dations helped pick up the slack from
declining federal support to the Univer-
sity with a 64 percent increase over last
"We've spent quite a bit of time
cultivating that," said Juster. However,
the increase in grants from such
organizations as the Rockefeller, Ford,

and Sloan Foundations has not been
enough to make up for federal cuts, he

first time the two have been suc-

Hilliard's process also allows resear=
chers to tailor the synthetic fuel to a
standard diesel engine instead of
requiring a new engine design to ac-
commodate a new fuel.
"I'M VERY excited about it," said
Dan Cleary, one of the students who
worked on the fuel. "I think that it is
just a matter of time before the fuel will
be used."
Hilliard said the new fuel, which took
six months to develop, is superior to oil-
based diesel fuel.."While vehicles using
conventional diesel fuel emit a cloud of
black smoke, our fuel eliminates the
smoke and has a rather pleasant odor
that resembles cooking popcorn," he
"Nitrogen oxide emissions are
reduced by about one-half and the
engine operates more quietly and ef-
ficiently," said Hilliard, who moved
here from his native England in 1980
because of greater opportunities in the
United States for automotive research.
MICHIGAN'S farmers will probably
be the first to benefit from Hilliard
work, he said. The Michigan Depar-
tment of Agriculture sponsored the
project because of the potential for
cheap farm fuel.
"Farmers are the logical place to
start," Hilliard said, "because they
already have the materials, the need,
and the disposition to try something
new. In this state, agriculture is the
number one user of diesel fuel."
Jeff Alson, spokesman for the En-
vironmental Protection Agency's Ann
Arbor emissions laboratory, said he
was aware, of Hilliard's fuel only
through .press clippings. The EPA
currently is developing its own syn-


thetic fuel, and has no plans to test
Hilliard's development, Alson said.
"WE ARE NOT surprised that a car
can run on such a fuel," Alson said.
Price and performance are factors that
will determine the new fuel's
feasibility, he said.
-Because production of the fuel is
highly labor-intensive, Hilliard said,
the price is about $5 per gallon. "To
produce petroleum diesel fuel in a
similar way would cost about $20 per
gallon," he said, so the price of the new
fuel would drop dramatically if it were
Under a grant from the Michigan
Department of Transportation, the fuel
will soon be tested in diesel buses run-
ning from Ann Arbor to La'nsing. If the
experiment is successful, the fuel later
will be used in Detroit's public transit
bHilliard said his current project is to
develop a fuel that can be used in stan-
dard gasoline engines.
