Thomas Dunn yesterday said the
University's top budget committee is no
more than "a tool of the ad-
The remark came at a discussion on
the University's review process by
University professors, sponsored by the
American Association of University
DUNN, WHO chaired the Budget
Priorities Committee (BPC) when it
was formed 12 years ago, said "Our
colleagues on the present BPC perhaps
are not aware of the original charge to
the BPC. There has been a slippage in
the original role."
"They're not there to make pronoun-
cements," he said, "but rather to put
pressuring advice about the budget to
the administration. The Committee
now is snowed under with detail, and it
has become a tool of the ad-
Dunn said faculty can blame "no one
but themselves" for the BPC's in-
creasing ties to the administration.
DISCUSSION centered on criticism
of the current reviews of the Schools of
Art, Education, and Natural Resour-
ces. The BPC has recommended major
cuts to all three schools.
'(The review) is a painful process,"
said Natural Resources Dean James
Crowfoot, "and there's a substantial
risk that those of us in the University
are captives of the unfolding process.''
Crowfoot joined about 35 other
professors who said they were confused
about the review process and thought it
was having a divisive effect on faculty.
" IN A SENSE, we're placing
colleagues against colleagues," said
School of Education Prof. Murray
Jackson, "and perhaps this is unfair to

another as enemies - with unit Y
taking money from unit X - is very
dangerous for the atmosphere of the
"It really affects us all," Jackson
said. "If anybody doesn't understand
this, they need a guardian."
ART SCHOOL Prof. William Carter
said he was concerned about the
process used to choose schools for
"Why were we targeted for review in
the first place? Vice President Frye
met with us, and his response was 'Why
not art?"' Carter said. He said Frye
justified the review by citing questions
which had never been asked about the
quality of the art school.
"The whole process began with an
aiutocratic decision, and will end with
an autocratic decision. We feel helpless
now, having been recommended for a
25 percent cut, wondering what the
process for appeal would be," Carter
said. "We're hoping for a face-down
negotiation, just like the School of
Natural Resources had."
Med school Prof. Ronald Bishop,
chairman of the Senate Advisory
Committee on University Affairs,
defended the review process, saying
"the executive officeres are quite
aware of the devastating effecttthis is
having. They are open to suggestions. I
think, however, they'd like suggestions
on how the process could be done dif-
But Education Prof. Loren Barritt
disagreed with Bishop. "There's no
dearth of suggestions," Barritt said.
"We just have administrators who are
damn gonna go through with the
process. I just really doubt they'd back
off on what has already been decided."

Senate passes jobs bill, delays
vote on tax withholding repeal
WASHINGTON - The Senate voted 82-16 yesterday to approve a $5.1
billion jobs and recession-relief bill, sending it to conference with the House
where negotiators will be under pressure to lower the price tag.
The Senate delayed a vote on a controversial proposal to repeal the 10 per-
cent tax withholding on dividends and interest scheduled to take effect July
1. Maneuvering on that proposal had held up action on the jobs bill for a
Senate leaders gave those seeking the withholding repeal a chance to put
their amendment on another bill and promised full Senate debate on the tax
measure beginning April 15.
Reagan administration officials said that more than half the states would
run out of money to pay unemployment benefits by this weekend unless
agreement on the jobs legislation could be reached by then.
"We can't play with the fate of people who are expecting and entitled to
unemployment checks," House leader Howard Baker told the Senate.
State GOP wants low tax hike
LANSING - Senate Republicans unveiled yesterday a tax increase alter-
native 43 percent smaller and of a far shorter duration than one backed by
Gov. James Blanchard.
The GOP proposal calls for boosting the 4.6 percent income tax to 5.6 per-
cent for nine months and includes business tax cuts for 1984. It was im-
mediately blasted by Senate Democrat Leader William Faust of Westland as
"putting a baby's finger in the hole in the dike."
Faust said Democrats probably will back a plan which includes asking
voters to approve a sales tax increase that would be used to roll back any in-
come tax hike.
The Democratic leader ordered the Senate Finance Committee to com-
plete a bill by Monday night and scheduled extensive Sentate debate for next
week. A vote may come Wednesday.
Blanchard said he is pleased with the pending Senate action and appeared
confident the plan he supports will be supported.
House budget committee slashes
military spending proposal
WASHINGTON - The Democratic-led House Budget Committee slashed
President Reagan's proposed 1984 military spending yesterday and added
billions for several domestic programs, including a federal pay raise.
The committee voted to slice Reagan's proposed 10 percent real increase
- adjusted for inflation - in military spending to 4 percent.
Chairman James Jones (D-Okla.) said he believes "much of Congress is
coalescing around a level of 3 to 6 percent growth for the military."
It was the first time during the Reagan administration that House
Democrats have so quickly and easily pushed their own budget proposal
Overall, the panel set spending for fiscal 1984 at $863.5 billion and included
$30 billion more in tax revenues than Reagan recommended.
Dioxin linked to birth defects
WASHINGTON - A study of 40,000 Vietnamese families suggests for the
first time that men exposed to dioxin -- a chemical in Agent Orange - have
an abnormally high number of birth defects among their children.
The Vietnamese research - revealed to 120 scientists at a conference in
Ho Chi Minh City (formerly Saigon) - contradicts American investigations
on the same subject and lends support to the claims and fears of many U.S.
No American research has linked dioxin to birth defects in humans.
The new study, undertaken by the government of Vietnam, concluded that
women whose husbands stayed in the North during the war ran significantly
less risk of having, miscarriages, stillbirths and children with abnormalities
than women whose husbands may have been exposed to Agent Orange in the
South, the only place where it was sprayed.
Not only were 2.5 million American servicemen potentially exposed to
dioxin in South Vietnam, but the chemical has been found in Times Beach
and other places in Missouri. The U.S. government has bought out the town
of Times Beach, while health officials have just begun to study the potential
adverse health effects - including birth defects - upon 2,400 residents ex-
posed for up to 11 years.
Kremlin threatens deployment
of missiles near U.S. borders
MOSCOW - A senior Soviet official said yesterday that the Kremlin would
have to deploy missiles "near American borders" to gain equality if NATO
goes ahead with plans to place medium-range nuclear rockets in Western
Today's edition of the newspaper Pravda added that "a timely and effec-
tive answer will be given to the growth of the threat to the security of the
USSR and its allies, which the new American missiles in Western Europe
In yesterday's edition of the Communist Party paper, Georgi Arbatov,
director of the USA and Canada Institute of the Soviet Academy of Science,
"As far as equality is concerned, in that case for the sake of this equality
we would have not ony to add to our missiles in Europe, but also deploy them
near American borders." Arbatov, considered a Kremlin spokesman, did
not specify where.
