"All my efforts have fallen short,"
said a School of Natural Resources
student yesterday, summing up the
frustration the school's students and
faculty feel after learning their school
could be slashed to one-third its size.
Over winter break, the University's
top budget advisory committee
recommended to the vice president for
academic affairs that the school be cut
by 30 percent, the undergraduate
enrollment slashed by 400 students, and
kraduate studies stepped up. The move
left students and faculty who had
worked since last summer promoting
the school frustrated and angry.
"I'M NOT satisfied at all with the
results of the report," said Jeff Cox, who
helped organize student support for the
school. "The report is disturbing to
me. I think all my efforts have fallen
short - it hasn't paid off much."
Karen Herr, a juinior in the school
who also helped rally students and who
defended the school at a public hearing,
said she was disappointed with the out-
.come even though she expected it.
"Nothing has really surprised me,"
she said. "I expected a 30 percent cut.
I expected that they would stress
graduate and Core courses. We're ob-
viously not going to just sit back and
,say that's what we expected, but we
were really not surprised."
OTHER students agreed that they
were not going to let the recommen-
dation become a reality without a fight.
"We have gone within the review
system for too long and it is not
working," said Jennifer Simon, a
riatural resources senior who par-
ticipated in a promotion booth at the

An apologetic Arthur Arroyo was sen-

prison for torching the Economics
Building on Christmas Eve, 1981.

days following both crimes, "I was very

a brief spell, a personality that went
totally against the type of individual I
have always aspired to be."

In an unprecedented move last mon-
th, nine publishing companies filed suit
to stop professors at a major university
from using copyrighted material in
their coursepacks without paying
royalties or obtaining the publishers'
While the case is specifically directed
at New York University, it could have
repercussions at the University of
Michigan and other schools where
professors, often depend upon cour-
sepacks as vital parts of their classes.

IN ANN ARBOR, professors and
copying shop owners are unsure of the
possible implications of the case, which
charges N.Y.U., nine of its professors,
and an off-campus copying shop with
copyright infringement.
Phil Zaret, owner of Accu-Copy on
Maynard Street, said the number of
coursepacks printed and sold might
drop if the publishers win the N.Y.U.
case. "If people get scared, there will
be less Xeroxing," he said.

that although he is unhappy with

DETROIT (UPI)- Michigan's
unemployment rate hit a 27-year record
high 17.3 percent in December with
nearly three-quarters of a million
people out of work, the Michigan Em-
ployment Security Commission repor-
ted yesterday.
MESC Director S. Martin Taylor said
the figure, up nearly a percentage point
from 16.4 percent in November, was the
highest for any month in Michigan sin-
ce the agency first began keeping
records in 1956.
TAYLOR SAID 746,000 people were
out of work last month, up 47,000 from
699,000 in November, despite callbacks
in the auto industry and gains in retail
Those gains were not enough to offset
an unusually large number of workers
re-entering the labor force, Taylor said.
"Many discouraged workers hoping
to find holiday jobs re-entered the job
market, causing a large jump in the
labor force," he said. "But most of
them did not find work."
TAYLOR SAID the labor force rose

by 65,000 from 4,262,000 in November to
4,327,000 in December. Employment
was up only 17,000, from 3,563,000 in
November to 3,580,000 last month.
Michigan's seasonally adjusted
unemployment rate for L wcember was
even worse-17.6 percent with 760,000
out of work, compared with 17.2 percent
and 732,000 out of work in November.
In December 1981, Michigan's unad-
justed unemployment rate was 14.4
percent with 614,000 out of work.
IN LANSING, assistant state budget
director Doug Roberts said the figures
indicate Michigan's economy is weaker
than expected and raise the possibility
the state may lag behind the national
recovery when it comes-rather than
lead it.
"I can only speculate. . . that it will
take a much longer time for us to
recover when the next upturn comes
nationally," said Roberts, a holdover
from the Milliken administration.
