University officials yesterday gran-
ted the School of Natural Resources a
temporary reprieve from a recommen-
ded 33 percent budget cut by deciding to
extend the school's financial review in-
to the coming summer..
Vice President for Academic Affairs
Bill Frye originally hoped to have a
final recommendation on the school's
fate ready for next week's Regents
But Frye announced yesterday that
he will instead inform the board that he
has ordered a six-member "transition
team" of Natural Resources faculty
members to evaluate three levels of
proposed cuts before he makes a final



recommendation. The team is expected-
to complete their evaluation this sum-
IN A statement released yesterday,
Frye said he accepted the general
thrust of an earlier budget committee's
report which recommended a 33 per-
cent cut, but said such a loss might be
more than the school can withstand.
"We recognize that considerable time
and careful planning will be required to
develop more specific alternative
recommendations and to implement
them constructively," he said.
The decision not to accept BPC's
recommendation outright came after a
public hearing in January, said Vice
President for State Relations Richard

Kennedy. "We tend on all of these
reviews to wait until everybody has had
their say," Kennedy said. "We then put
those pieces together. (The recommen-
ded cut) got a good, healthy discussion
on the part of the officers."
AS A RESULT of meetings with both
the executive officers and school of-
ficials, Frye decided to continue the
review process by forming the tran-
sition team, to be led by newly-
appointed Natural Resources Dean
James Crowfoot,

A bill to deny all student financial aid
to universities that provide money for
draft registration resisters probably
will be introduced in Congress soon, of-
ficials in Washington said yesterday.
A spokesman for Rep. Gerald
Solomon (R-NY) said "there's a 95
percent chance" that the congressman,
who sponsored the original legislation
linking financial aid to registration, will
submit the bill.
Congress already has passed a
law to take effect this summer
that requires all males who apply for
federal financial aid to submit proof
that they have registered with the
Selective Service.

are upset with the legislation. But
University administrators are hesitant

There will be a new kid in town
among Detroit newspapers next Wed-
nesday but the Free Press and the
News are not planning a warm
welcome. The new national paper, USA
Today, will be stepping into the middle
of a raging Detroit circulation war.
The national weekday paper owned
by Gannett, Inc. is making Detroit its
twelfth major market and, to the
chagrin of editors of Detroit's
established dailies, is hoping to attract
regular readers of its own.
"IF PEOPLE buy 100 USA Todays
and 100 fewer Free Press, then USA
Today has an effect on us. That's 100 too
many," said Free Press senior
managing editor Neal Shine.
USA Today makes extensive use of
color photographs, weather charts and
graphics. Publicists tout it as having
"the largest, most comprehensive spor-
ts coverage: of any newspaper in
While editors of The Detroit News
have done little to combat any com-
petition from the new paper, the Free
Press has begun using more color and
is adding more graphics and television

Fort Collins, Colo., police declined to identify, had not
noticed that the withdrawal slip he used at United Bank had
a robbery message written on the back, said Detective
Frank Russell. The message said, "I want $10,000 in small
bills. I am armed." When the teller saw the note, she
pushed the robbery alarm button and then began handing
the confused customer the money from her cash drawer,
Russell said. The man replied, "What are you giving me all
this money for? I only want $200." By that time police had
