rdge bars
draft-aid law

with wire reports
A Minnesota federal judge yester-
day barred the federal government
from enforcing a law that would
deny financial aid to students who
have not registered for the draft.
Saying the law was "likely to
violate students' constitutional
rights against self-incrimination,"
U.S. district Judge Donald Alsop

issued a preliminary injunction in a
lawsuit that draft resisters and
educators viewed as a national test
THE SUIT, brought by six Min-
nesota college students, challenged
the law signed by President Reagan
last September which required male
students applying for financial aid to
prove they registered with the Selec-
tive Service before receiving any
federal funds.
"It takes no great stretch of the

imagination to discern how plaintif-
fs' identification of themselves as
non-registrants could incriminate
them or provide a significant link in
the chain of evidence tending to
establish their guilt," Alsop wrote in
his 26-page opinion.
"Enforcement of a law likely to be
found unconstitutional is not in the

Proposed cuts distress'
Ed. School professors,

School of Education professors are confused and
angry about a recent proposal to cut 40 percent of the
school's budget and eliminate almost half their
colleagues' jobs. But in many cases they are trying to
remain optimistic about the school's future.
Professors learned the outcome of the school's 10-
month review early this week when the dean allowed
them to read the confidential report just completed by a
financial review panel.
MANY PROFESSORS said they were confused and
disillusioned by what they said is a contradictory report.

"When you look at the first part of the report it makes
a recommitment to education and the achool," said one
professor, who asked to remain anonymous. "But in the
second part it is just cut and slice, cut and
slice . . . nothing about being better. It's as if folks said
they were going to send you to college and then said, 'By the
way, we are not going to give you the money to do it.'"
Many criticized the panel's report for the extent of the
recommended cuts.
"I DON'T THINK the school can do what the report
asks it to do with the resources left available," said Prof.

Michigan came from behind to pull out a 66-60 victory.

conference examines '1984'
Does Big Brother
have an eye on us?

Is Big Brother really watching you?
University poet in residence Czeslaw
Milosz told a crowd of 300 last night that
he is beginning to think so.
"1984 is a description of reality,"
Milosz told an opening night audience
at "The Future of 1984," conference
being held this week to study George
Orwell's famous novel.
MILOSZ said 1984 marked the turning

point in science fiction. Beofre Orwell's
novel, technology had been regarded as
a means to achieve Utopia, he said. But
Milosz said Orwell showed that
technology could also become a tool of
an evil government.
"Manipulation of the past and indoc-
trination have existed since time im-
memorial," Polish-born Milosz said. He
said people don't realize how much
their minds are molded by science.
The basic flaw with Orwell's book, he
said, was that Orwell's totalitarian or-
der failed to capture the basic disorder
of reality."

MILOSZ, A nobel-prize winning poet,
is the University's visiting Walgreen
Profesor in Human Understanding.
Robert Holbrook, associate dean for
academic affairs, opened the conferen-
ce in place of Vice President for
Academic Affairs Billy Frye who was
sick with laryngitis.
Law Prof. Francis Allen joined
Milosz at the opening night ceremonies.
"IT IS IN THE private world that
friendship, compassion and other life
enhancing values were first and most
strongly experienced," Allen said.
He also criticized television com-
paring it to the "telescreen," the
monitoring device that haunted the
characters of Orwell's 1949 novel.
"How great are the differences bet-
ween such a society and one in which
persons. . . can never bring themselves
to turn off the television set?"
Allen also defended freedom of the
press and attacked fundamentalist
religions as a forerunner to Big
Brother. "Fundamentalists seek to im-
pose restrictions on the privacy of
others," he said.
Allen said he was concerned by the
power of the National Security Agency.
"Any government, like our own, that
supports (an agency than can) sweep
the atmosphere and collect radio
messages in the process of tran-
smission, identifying and recording
them, has earned our serious concern."

Regent Gerald Dunn (D-Lansing) called for divestment of University stocks
in corporations operating in S. Africa at the first Campus Meet the Press

Research committee

A key faculty committee yesterday
released a report recommending the
University allow individual academic
units to administer their own guidelines
for non-classified research.
The 18-page report, which sum-
marized previous resolutions passed by
the Research Policies Committee, will
be presented to the Senate Assembly

March 21.
Three of the committee's four student
members filed a dissenting opinion with
the report, criticizing the RPC for not
recommending the formation of an
oversight group to regulate non-
classifed research throughout the
