Canham may give USFL the boot

The Michigan football program's top
two officials said yesterday that they
may follow the lead of other colleges
and ban the United States Football
League from campus as a result of the
USFL's signing Georgia's junior
tailback Herschel Walker to a contract
last week.
Athletic Director Don Canham, who
just returned from a trip to Florida, and
Head Football Coach Bo Schembechler,
who will return to Ann Arbor from the
same state today, will meet to decide on
the new football league's future on
"WE ARE NOT welcoming them, but we
haven't discussed it since Bo and I have
both been out of town," said Canham.

Anthony Carter starts
workouts with the USFL's
Michigan Panthers tomorrow.
See story, Page 9.
"But it's a possibility that we might ban
them from campus. But I don't think
there's any way to fight it. If they want
to scout you, they only have to sit in the
stands. So I don't know what tools you
have, except public opinion."
Schembechler told the Associated
Press yesterday, that he has not ruled
out the possibility of banning the USFL
from campus.
"I don't want to work unilaterally,"

he said. "I'll go back to my conference
and see what they think, but that
doesn't mean I won't act alone."
Schembechler said he is more con-
cerned with the potential effects of
Walker's signing than the actual
signing itself. "We're not talking about
Herschel Walker per se,", said Schem-
bechler. "He's one guy. We're talking
about the effect an early signing has on
other kids and how it's opened the door
for every fly-by-night agent. That's why
we're in the position we're in in college
athletics - because someone says,
'We'll only do it once.' It's about time
someone said no. Your word is your
bond; when that's gone, what's left?"
CANHAM IS also worried about the
precedent that Walker's signing sets.

"It causes anybody in intercollegiate
athletics some pretty hefty concerns,"
said Canham. "Legally, they can do
what they want. But where are the
ethics? That's what concerns me.
We're concerned they'll cause the NFL
to do the same. If they take Walker and
now they're after (Oklahoma freshman
running back Marcus) Dupree, how
long can the NFL be ethical? Where
would USC be if O.J. Simpson were
drafted early? We're concerned with
the precedent this sets for the NFL and
CFL (Canadian Football League)."
Canham wouldn't say where he heard
that Dupree was being pursued by the
USFL, and Oklahoma officials yester-
day disputed the athletic director's

opens new
station in
the Union
A new computing facility designed to
ease overcrowding at other campus
computing centers opened its doors for
the first time yesterday.
The center's terminals won't be
available for use until tomorrow, but
that didn't stop about 40 University of-
ficials - many of whom helped develop
the center - from turning out for the
ribbon-cutting ceremony dedicating the
station known as UNYN (Union).
The station, housed in the basement
of the Michigan Union where the
student bowling alley used to be, is
about the same size as the one at North
University Building Services (NUBS).
AS HE CUT the ribbon strung across
the center's doorway, University Vice
President for Research Charles Over-
berger said that UNYN is evidence of
the University's commitment to
students and computing.
"I think it's an indication of the
priority of computing at the University
of Michigan when times (financially)
have not been easy," he said.
THE STATION is expected to lessen
the congestion at NUBS, which is the
only other major computing facility on
central campus.
"It will at long last relieve some of
the terrible overcrowding conditions at

WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Reagan yesterday asked for a $60
million boost in weapons aid to El
Salvador and a senior White House of-
ficial said the administration is eyeing
an expansion in both the number and
role of American military advisers in
that nation.
The official said Reagan has ordered
a full-scale review of overall U.S. policy
in gentral America, including a
possible buildup in the team, now
limited to 55 members and barred from
combat, that advises El Salvador's for-
ce against a leftist insurgency.]
The disclosure, made to reporters
traveling to California with the
president on Air Force One, came only
hours after Reagan told congressional
leaders that $60 million in new U.S.
military aid. is needed for the
Salvadoran army to cope with the
growing conflict.]
Howard Baker of Tennessee said
Reagan told the congressional leaders
that the Salvadoran government will
have trouble surviving without ad-
ditional support.
"The president made it clear there is
a serious problem' in the Central
American region, that the national in-
terests of this country are deeply in-
volved in the outcome of that struggle,"
Baker said.

Baker said the "immediate problem"
is "whether or not the government of El
Salvador can sustain itself" based on
the current level of U.S. support. The
president's view, Baker said, is that "it
would have a difficult time doing that."
THE SENIOR official who joined the
president aboard Air Force One spoke
only on condition he not be identified.
He said Reagan had ordered the policy
review four weeks ago and that no
decision had been reached yet.
He said the review "is far broader
than just funding" and could include
raising the self-imposed limit of 55
American advisers and expanding their
role, which is now limited to training.
The official said Reagan was con-
sidering increasing the number of ad-
visers "in the face of the Soviet threat"
in the region. He said about one-third of
Soviet military aid went to Latin
America while only two percent of U.S.
aid did. Much of that Soviet assistance,
however, goes to Cuba.
A DEFENSE Department official,
who spoke only on condition he remain
anonymous, said last week that the
situation facing the Salvadoran army
was increasingly serious and that the
$26 million in military aid approved by
Congress for 1983 had already been
He said the army was "about to run
out of ammunition" and needed a fresh
infusion of U.S. military assistance.

Crowfoot says cuts too deep

The new dean of the School of Natural
Resources told the Regents last week
that the school agrees in several sub-
stantial areas with a proposal to pare
down its budget, but that the proposed
33 percent cut goes too far and would
force the layoff of tenured faculty.
Dean James Crowfoot also said that
administrators have to reestablish the'
school's tenure promotion process -
which has been on hold throughout the
review - and provide the funds

necessary for the school to cope with
the overhaul it soon will go through.
"I BELIEVE we are establishing
positive progress and have some sub-
stantial areas of agreement with ad-
ministrators," Crowfoot said, "(but)
we are going to need substantial help."
Bargaining between Natural Resour-
ces officials and the central ad-
ministration has given the school a
temporary reprieve in the review
process. Rather than going ahead with
a budget committee's recommendation

that the school's budget be cut by one-
third, the administration will allow the
school to study the effects of budget
cuts-of 20 percent, 25 percent to 28 per-
cent, and 33 percent. Vice President for
Academic Affairs and Provost Billy
Frye will then pick the level of reduc-
tion he feels is appropriate. (Frye was
given his new title of provost in other
action at the Regents meeting.)
Natural resourceds faculty members
have said that a cut of 20 percent is the

Bicentennial leftovers
HENRY MYERS of Carrollton, O., has tools in his
workshop that will cut through almost anything except
the government red tape that left him holding 17,000
American Bicentennial fireplace shovels. The northeastern
Ohio tinsmith did not receive his Bicentennial license until
two-thirds of the way through 1976, even though he applied
for it in August 1975. "I just wanted to put out a com-
memorative that was nostalgic but still useful," Myers
said. "Something besides T-shirts and spoons." But Myers
also had the misfortune of being the last of the 133 licenses
