Gov. James Blanchard yesterday proposed
cutting as much as $5 million from the
University as part of his plan to cure the
state's fiscal woes.
University officials, who last week feared
reductions as high as $13 million, said they
were encouraged by the'governor's decision.
RICHARD KENNEDY, the University's
vice president for state relations, said that
while "any cuts are bad," Blanchard is "cer-
tainly headed in the right direction as far as
higher education is concerned."
Blanchard proposed cutting a total of $25
million from the state's higher education
system, instead of the $60-million reduction
recommended by his Fiscal Crisis Committee
"This is an enormously encouraging drop in
the reductions the Fiscal Crisis Committee
recommended," Kennedy said.
ACCORDING TO Pat McCarthy of the
state's Office of Budget Management, $15
million of the proposed $25-million reductions
could be made through deferrals rather than
actual cuts. He said a study is under way to
determine whether that will be possible.
Kennedy said that if the reductions take the
form of permanent cuts, the University could
lose up to $5 million in state funds, though that
will depend on the "nature of the cuts."
"The pain and agony (the cuts) hold for us
will depend on a lot of factors as yet undeter-
mined," Kennedy said. "It's not going to be

presidents of Michigan's colleges and univer-
sities, including University President Harold
Shapiro, may have persuaded Blanchard to
come up with his own recommendation ins-

"It's hard to say, but we would like to think
the information we provided had some im-
pact," Kennedy said. "It appears the governor

Engineering Prof. Thomas Senior speaks on defense research at a Campus Chapel forum last night.
'U' defense research
By JIM SPARKS
Jimmy Spearow held up a model of the F-111
fighter bomber last night and asked one of the
University's leading defense researchers if the
plane isn't used for killing.
Engineering Prof. Thomas Senior, who has per-
formed research on the effect of a nuclear blast on
the electronics systems of airplanes, replied,
"yes, so what."
SPEAROW, a researcher in the University's
Center for Human Growth and Development, and
others at the forum on "Military Research and the
University of Michigan" charged that Senior's
work has direct applications to weapons systems
that would harm human life. Senior replied that
his research has no direct bearing on weapons
systems, and if it did, it would be classified.
That exchange highlights a debate that has
divided the campus for a year and a half. Critics of'
military research say projects such as Senior's
are used by the military to develop new weapons
technology, while researchers maintain they are
working on problems that have any number of ap-
plications, civilian and military.
Senior pointed out that his research has peaceful
applications, although he added, "I am not
denying there's an element of truth in your
statement, in that the Air Force may use it for

With the three-point play this year, the game is never over
until the final buzzer. But last night, it looked like it would
WITH BOTH teams staying alive due to the three-point
shot at different points during the overtimes, it was Purdue
who finally pulled out an 80-77 victory.
Eric Turner missed a three-pointer with three seconds left
that would have forced a fourth overtime. Incredibly, the
Wolverines still had a chance to tie after Purdue's Mack
Gadis missed the front end of a one-and-one. Turner's 80-
footer hit the backboard at the buzzer.
The Wolverines seemingly had the game won at the end of
the first overtime when Butch Wade scored on a dunk off a 75-
foot pass from Turner that gave'them a 62-59 lead with only
seven seconds remaining. The Boilermakers brought the ball
to halfcourt and called timeout with three seconds left. After
the break Curt Clawson took the inbounds pass and heaved a
27-foot swish for three points to send the game into a second
The two teams traded buckets at the beginning of the
second extra stanza but then it was Purdue's turn to take con-
trol. The Boilermakers had a three-point lead but Turner hit
two free throws with eight seconds left to narrow the gap to
70-69. Turner then immediately fouled Ricky Hall who sank
both ends of the ensuiring one-and-one to make the score 72-
69. See BOILERMAKERS, Page 10

projects - has no place at the University.
"The Department of Defense is primarily con-
cerned about the improvement and building of
weapons of destruction," he said. "It destroys the
fabric of an institution that appreciates culture."
Senior said efforts to control non-classified
research at the 'University strike at academic
freedom. He also said that at least in the case of

Ann Arbor will play host next
month when former Presidents
Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter
meet publicly for only the second
time since Carter left office.
The two leaders will be in town to
participate in a two-day conferen-
ce on the issues of social security
and retirement, jobs and produc-
tivity, and inflation. Conference
,participants will try to define the
public administrator's role in
dealing with these domestic policy
issues, said Don Wilson, director of
the Ford Library on North Cam-
pus, where the meeting wil be held.
THE NEWLY-formed Domestic
Policy Association - a coalition of
four national philanthropic foun-
dations - organized the Feb. 9 and
10 conference to "encourage wide-
spread public discussion of
domestic problems," said Robert

Kettering Foundation, one of the
association's sponsoring groups.

Raymond Baker of Detroit with robbing two banks and
trying to rob a third. What sets Baker apart from other
bank robbery suspects is his stick-up notes - they were
generally filled with long, rambling remarks about his need
