Regents pass budget,
question wage plan

s

The University Regents voted in a
record budget yesterday, but not
without some controversy, both inside
and outside the meeting.
Outside the Regents' room, about 100
demonstrators protested against the
University's budget cutting plans,
while inside, some Regents raised
questions and argued over salary plans,
defense research, and the quality of the
University's faculty.
REGENT GERALD Dunn (D-Garden
City) cast the only 'no' vote on the
$285.5 million budget plan, but more
than one Regent questioned the way the
budget's salary plan will be distributed.
Before the vote, Dunn said he wanted
'an across the board increase for the
11,500 University clerks and
techinicians, not an increase based on
the employee's performance.
When Vice-President for Academic
Affairs Billy Frye said the increase
would be from zero percent to 12 per-
cent at the discretion of each program's
administrator, Regent Nellie Varner
(D-Detroit) exclaimed: "That will
mean some will not get any increases at
all." Varner still voted for the budget.
Under the plan, 3,500 of the workers will
get $2 million from the General Fund,
while 8,000 of them will get proportional

University faculty received a $5
million raise in September.The clerical
workers plan starts in January, but
some of the employees are trying to
unionize workers for higher pay.
State funds still provide most of the
General Fund budget, but that share
has been steadily decreasing, forcing
tuition to rise by 15 percent.
THOSE STATE appropriations,
which are normally known by the time

than officials hoped for in July, and
even then, the $136,236,000 ap-
propriation is taken with a grain of salt,
because of past cuts or deferments.
"We're dealing with a house of car-
ds-monopoly money," said Regent.
Sarah Power, referring to the unstable
nature of current state support.
President Harold Shapiro granted
that the projected budget is

Student rally attacks
'U' budget redirection

A smaller but bitter crowd listens to speakers protest the University's budget policies outside the Fleming Ad-
ministration Building yesterday. Not many students showed up, but those who did threatened serious action if the
Regents don't listen to their demands.

By NEIL CHASE
Before a disappointingly small and
somewhat chilled .crowd in Regents'
Plaza, student and city leaders joined
together yesterday to call for an im-
mediate end to the University's finan-
cial redirection plans.
"Today at the University, humanities
are not important. Social studies are
not important. Students are a low
priority at this university," City Coun-
cil member and psychology Prof.
Raphael Ezekiel said to approximately

100 students standing in front of the
administration building.
THE RALLY, organized primarily by
the Michigan Student Assembly, was
planned to excite the protesters before
they appeared at the public comments
section of the Regents meeting, which
followed the protest.
Most of the students who braved the
windy afternoon chill attended the
meeting to voice their concern over the
future of the schools of art, natural

almost 300 students, faculty, and com-

hearing.
AMONG THE roughly 40 speakers
supporting the school was filmmaker

A number of past and present studen-
ts also defended the school, although
along with the other speakers most did
not address the specific questions the
review committee is asking.
Kenneth Aptekar, a 1973 art school
graduate who traveled from New York
to speak, said he is still in touch with his
former professors. "I entered the art
school here to be an artist," he said.
"The faculty was energetic, personal.
These people were important role
models for some kid who never knew
real artists."
ONE ISSUE the school's review
committee has been examing is
whether the school is isolated from the
nation's leading cultural centers.
"I transferred here and found things I
couldn't find elsewhere," said art
school senior Janet Page, who also at-
tended what she described as a "brand
name" school in New York City.
"I feel strongly about my academic
study here," she said. Page said she
has appreciated the opportunity to
study sciences and languages,
something she would not have been able
to do at an art institute.

Suspect
arrested
follo wing
bouncer's
stabbing
By DAN GRANTHAM
A man suspected of stabbing a
University student working as a boun-
cer at a local bar was arraigned yester-
day on charges of assault with intent to
do bodily harm.
Armour Ketzner, of 3460 Lasalle St.,
was arrested after allegedly stabbing a
20-year-old bouncer in the stomach at
the Second Chance bar Tuesday night,
police said. The victim, whose identity
hasn't been released, was rushed to
University Hospital, where he was
listed last night in stable condition.
DAVE URBANIAK, manager of the
Second Chance, said Ketzner had been
thrown out of the bar earlier in the
evening after he went in without paying
the cover charge. The suspect returned
at about 11:30 p.m., Urganiak said, and
was thrown out again.
Moments later, he said, the suspect
returned and stabbed the bouncer. Ann
Arbor Police Sgt. Harold Tinsey said of-
ficers arrested Ketzner after a witness
pointed him out.
Urbaniak said the stabbing was an
"extremely isolated incident," and that
he couldn't say whether the club would
now beef up its security.
Urbaniak would not identify the boun-
cer, but said he had worked at the bar
for about two years.

Polish roting claims first victim

WARSAW, Poland (AP) - Riots over
the ban on Solidarity claimed their first
victim yesterday-a young man who died
of gunshot wounds-and police fired
tear gas to disperse mourners lighting
candles for the victim at a church.
Worker anger was reported spreading
through Poland's coal and steel hear-
tland.
The official PAP news agency said
Bodgan Wlosik, 20, died yesterday in a
hospital after being shot by a plain-
clothes officer who was attacked Wed-
nesday during fierce street righting

that left nearly 100 people injured in the
Krakow steel-making suburb of Nowa
Huta.
Police fired tear gas into a crowd of
mourners placing candles and a floral
cross at a local church yesterday in
honor of Wlosik, PAP and reliable
sources reported.
IT WAS THE first officially
acknowledged death in the riots
spawned by the outlawing of the Soviet
bloc's first independent labor
federation a week ago.
The Communist Party newspapaer

warned that new riots and strikes could
extend martial law, and the official in-
formation service Interpress said
leaflets urging street protests and a
boycott of pro-government unions set
up in place of Solidarity have appeared
in factories in Katowice province.
Miners at the Jankowice coal mine
near Rybnik refused to work for one

Officially needed
F YOU SEE yourself as a frustrated politico, you need
be frustrated no longer. The student government of the
school of Literature, Science and the Arts (LSA-SG) is
currently looking for someone to coordinate their upcoming
elections. Though the job requires a significant amount of
time, a $375 stipend is provided. Interviews are also being
conducted for an assistant elections coordinator. A stipend
is available for that job as well. Interested persons should
contact Margaret Talmers at the LSA-SG office on the four-

Then the 39-year-old woman decided it must be a mistake,
and began an effort to find the bracelet's rightful owner.
Local police were no help. She tried calling the manufac-
turer, RJ. Reynolds Industries in Winston-Salem, North
Carolina. A spokesman for the company, Nat Walker, said
that if Mrs. Koester returns the pack and bracelet to the
company, he personally will reimburse her for the postage.
He said he may be able to tell from the numbers on the side
of the pack which assembly line it went through, and then
track down the owner. Walker said it was hard to believe
the bracelet could have filtered through the company's
automated production process. But a couple of years ago,
