'4U places
freeze on
all hiring
anticipates
budget cut
By BARRY WITT
In anticipation of a devastating blow
to the University's budget, the ad-
ministration August 30 placed an in-
terim freeze on all hiring until state of-
ficials decide how much they intend to
cut from University coffers.
But the hiring freeze is only a minor
inconvenience compared to the poten-
tial impact of another large state
budget cut. The University's chief
budget official said yesterday that a cut
anywhere near the amount now being
considered in Lansing would thwart the
University's ability to fund its more
pressing needs.
A LARGE CUT will also mean many
layoffs in the next few months. The
University would have to cut its work-
force by 400 employees through layoffs
and attrition by July to make up for the
loss in state aid, one official estimated.
State legislators and officials from
Gov. William Milliken's budget office
presently are workihg out a plan to put
the state's budget in balance by Sep-
tember 30, as required by the Michigan,
constitution.
Milliken proposed in late August to
cut $150 million from the budget, ii-
cluding some $8 million from the
University. But a House committee

House overrides

veto
By FANNIE WEINSTEIN
A House vote yesterday overriding an
earlier veto by President Reagan could
mean an increase in federal financial
aid awards for University students this
year.
In a bi-partisan move, the House
voted 301 to 117 to override the
president's Aug. 28 veto of a $14.2
million appropriations bill which would
provide an additional $217 million for
student financial aid programs
nationally. The Senate is expected to
Vote on the bill this afternoon:
THE BILL would bring the federal
Basic Educational Opportunity (Pell)
Grant Program allocation to almost
$2.5 billion nationally and would increase

of aid
the maximum Pell Grant award for
University students from $1,674 to
$1,800.
In addition, the total allocation for the
University-administered Supplemental
Educational Opportunity Grant
Program would be increased to $355
million and would provide the Univer-
sity with an additional $250,000.
Not surprisingly, University officials
were pleased with yesterday's House
victory.
"As(Speaker of the House Thomas)
O'Neill said, it really is not a
Democratic victory. It's a bi-partisan
statement of where the people of this
country are on these programs,"

view from Washington, where he lob-
hies for the University.
"The view from a number of people in
town (Washington) is that' the hardest
job was getting it through the House,"
Butts said.
ALTHOUGH Reagan described the
bill as a "budget-buster," Butts said he
believes support of the bill was more of
a philosophical issue. "It's a matter of
where the (Congress) members' values
lie."
However, both Butts and the Univer-
sity's director of financial aid said they
cautiously optimistic about today's
Senate vote.

'U' eleared of sex bias
after remedy approved
By BILL SPINDLE-

e6

Although four areas of discrimination
were found in the athletic department,
the University has been cleared of any
Title IX sex bias violations after a
lengthy federal investigation.
The regional Office of Civil Rights
last week approved the University's
two-year plan to remedy its alleged
violations "of federal anti-sex
discrimination guidelines, thus
allowing the University to be in com-
pliance with Title IX. '
THE UNIVERSITY and the federal
vernment's OCR have argued over
e athletic discrimination issue all
summer, with each party issuing
several rebuttals to the other's
statements during May, June, and July.
In August the OCR, using a per-
missive approach, issued its report
listing the four areas of sex-
discrimination in the University's
athletic program.
According to that report, the Univer-
sity was not providing equal benefits to
men and women in the areas of finan-
cial assistance, travel allowances,
availability of coaches, and recruit-
ment of athletes.
IN A JULY response to the OCR's
preliminary report, the University ex-

violations, the University has agreed

plicitly denied violations in any of the
four areas the OCR pointed out.
The University's continuing defense
has been that the federal government
has no jurisdiction over the Athletic
Department because the Wolverines
receive no federal funds.
In addition, the University con-
tinually has questioned the OCR's
method of investigationdand the con-
clusions reached.
Even in its final report, the OCR had
some minor objections to the Univer-
sity's plan, but none of them was impor-
tant enought to put the athletic depar-
tment back into non-compliance.
THE CHICAGO OCR, conducting the
investigation as a branch of the Depar-
tment of Education, said the Univer-
sity's largest previous misconduct was
in the awarding of financial aid in

amounts disproportionate to the actual
number of men and women in theb
department.
Although women comprise 29.7 per-
cent of the athletes at the University,
they receive only 22.4 percent of the4
total financial aid, the OCR report said.
(The figures were adjusted for the dif-
ferences between in-state and out-of-
state tuition.)
The University, in its remedy, inten-
ds to remove that difference in stages,
half in 1982 and half in 1983.
THE OCR ALSO charged that the

Business
as usual
at U-Cellar
By GREG BRUSSTAR
Although the University, Cellar
bookstore's management feared its
recent move from the convenient
Michigan Union location would cause a
drop in sales, store officials say this
week has been bookrush as usual.
Follett's Michigan Book Store,
however, a U-Cellar competitor,
yesterday reported its textbook sales
are up considerably from last year's.
The U-Cellar's new location-the
corner of Liberty and Division-is three
blocks from central campus, and the
management worried that the change
would send customers to more con-
veniently located stores.
"We were nervous," said Bruce
Weinberg, manager of the U-Cellar.
"We thought it would take some time to
build up a clientele and to build up the
bookrush, but it hasn't," he said.
THE STORE has been doing roughly
the same financially, Weinberg said.
"In the Michigan Union we would have
paid more rent . . . and, the Union

kingdom" for sex, according to an article in the
October edition of Playboy magazine, but the
University ranks only ninth in a list of 20 collegiate
hot spots. The article explains that "college is both a more
conservative and sexier place today than when anarchy
reigned (in the '60s)." Based on a survey of 2,000 college
students from around the country, the article reports that
although sexual standards are more liberal at most schools
than they were 10 years ago, "virginity is not quite dead."
Students are now "cooler" about sex, the magazine reports,
and many-especially women-"claim that contraception
takes the romance or the spontaneity out of a sexual
episode." According to the "Extracurricular" chart ac-

Sorry, wrong number
Getting a new dialer this week hasn't been easy. Students
venturing to the Phone Center store at Briarwood Mall
were sent back to the Michigan Bell Building, 324 Huron
St.-just down the street from the old store, which closed
last spring. The new student-oriented office has been set up
temporarily to handle the student rush, said Ma Bell
representative Karen Waldecker. She said the Briarwood
store will take student orders, but she recommends going to
Huron St. because the office is geared toward students.
"They'll get faster and better service," Waldecker said.
The Huron St. location will be open from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Money, it's a gas
The Office of Financial Aid has traditionally given
students calling for information an earful of music while
they're put on hold, but one section of that office stands out
from the rest. Students who call for Guaranteed Student
Loan information instead hear a tape which tells them
complaints have prompted the office to stop playing music.
"Some people just don't like certain kinds of music," said
Lynn Borset, assistant director in the financial aid office.
Borset said the tapes had featured everything from rock
and roll to classical, but there were always complaints.
"Instead of trying to please everyone, we just didn't play
music at all," she said. Although the GSL line has stopped
the music, the general information line is continuing with
mild jazz for ambitious callers ready to brave the wait on
hold. Perhaps for a new twist, they might try out a Muzak
version of Pink Floyd's "Money"-just for kicks. El

Also on this date in history:
* 1966-Ex-Beatle John Lennon, considered a leader in
the "social revolution" of the '60s, was chastized by
University students for cutting his long hair for a part in a
motion picture. Many felt Lennon-was succumbing to the
wishes of the "Establishing Elders," who viewed the long
hair as improper.
* 1976-Dr Benjamin Spock visited the University to
campaign for the vice-presidency on the Socialist Party
ticket.
" 1980-Tickets went on sale for an October 2 concert
featuring Bruce Springsteen. Some diehard fans had been
in line waiting to purchase tickets for four days.
