Israel,

agree on
agenda
for talks
From AP and UPI
KIRYAT SHMONA, Israel -
Following pressure from President
IReagan, Israel and Lebanon broke a
three-week deadlock yesterday and
agreed to negotiate simultaneously on
the withdrawal of foreign troops from
Lebanon and future relations between
Israel and Lebanon.
The breakthrough in the sixth round
of negotiations, held in the northern
Israeli border town of KIryat Shmona,
came after about three hours of private
talks among U.S. envoy Morris Draper
0and the heads of the Israeli and
Lebanese delegations.
LEBANESE officials in Beirut said
when the Israeli, Lebanese and
American negotiators get down to
business at their next meeting Monday,
their delegation would propose a com-
prehensive plan for withdrawal of all
Israeli troops from Lebanon.
Israeli Defense Minister Ariel Sharon
said he was sure the negotiators "will
arrive at security arrangements and
normalization as the first stage to
peace between Israel and Lebanon."
Through four semiweekly meetings
in Kiryat Shmona and the south Beirut
suburb of Khalde, the Israelis insisted
that the negotiators first agree on nor-
malization of relations between the
two nations, while the Lebanese
demanded priority for withdrawal of
the estimated 60,000 Israeli, Syrian and
Palestinian troops.
AT THE FIFTH meeting Monday in
Khalde, both Lebanon and Israel accep-

Faculty, students silent
on art school review

LANSING (UPI) - The announ-
cement came two weeks sooner than he
had intended, but Senate Democratic
Leader William Faust said yesterday
he stands behind his proposal that
Michigan's income tax be hiked 43 per-
cent to balance the budget.
He conceded, however, that his plan
to raise the state income tax frorm 4.6
percent to 6.6 percent probably will not
win legislative support.
IT WILL provide, he said, a starting
place for dealing with Michigan's $750
million and growing deficit. A two per-
centage point increase would raise
about $1 billion this year.
"$enate Bill 1 signifies the
significance of our dilemma," the
Westland Democrat said, noting the bill
will be officially introduced on Jan. 25.
A combination of taxes and cuts could
be used to balance the budget, he said.
The tax increase would help the state
pay back cuts from higher education,
including the $26 million deferment
held from the University earlier this
week.
FAUST HAD intended to reveal the
proposal with a news conference on that
day, just before Gov. James Blanchard
delivers his State of the State message
and after the governor's Crisis Council
announced its budget recommen-
dations.
"The timing of it is wrong," Faust
said, explaining that "communication
problems" among his staff and his own
preoccupation with Senate committee
assignments caused the premature
release of the proposal.

By FANNIE WEINSTEIN
Response from art school officials,
faculty, and students was practically
non-existent yesterday following Wed-
nesday's disclosure that a budgetary
review committee has recommended
cuts to the school of no more than 15
percent.
Several faculty members said they
would not comment on the sub-panel's
conclusions until it is released by the
University because they felt publicity
before the next step in the review
process would hurt the school. Univer-

sity administrators said the report will
not be officially released for several
weeks.
ONE FACULTY member who asked
not to be identified said he thought the
recommendation was "not
unreasonable, but not necessarily
correct or proper."
He said art school professors have
discussed areas where the potential-
cuts could be made but have made no
firm decisions.
"We've talked about every scenario
under the sun but because it's not

reality, we haven't dealt with the
(reductions) yet," he said.
ADVERTISING design Prof. Chaun-
cey Korten said he was not surprised by
the committee's recommendation. "I
didn't expect it (the cut) to be any wor-
se than that (10-15 percent)," he said.
Korten said he was more surprised
the school had been selected to be
reviewed at all. "I'm not sure the whole
process should have begun in the first
place."

An aide to Blanchard said the gover-
nor was not aware of the proposal and
continues to wait for the crisis council's
report before unveiling his plan.
STATE TREASURER Robert
Bowman noted "it might complicate
things."
So many potential budget recovery
plans have been discussed it may be
difficult for the public to accept one as a
serious proposal, Bowman said.
The Faust proposal drew immediate
criticism from Republicans.
"WHAT FAUST is proposing is ... a
little premature," said House
Republican Leader Michael Busch of
Saginaw. "It's not only premature, but
somewhat irresponsible."
Senate Republican Leader John
Engler said he wants to wait for Blan-
chard's proposal before the GOP takes
-a position on a budget recovery plan.
A crisis council official said Tuesday
a significant tax increase will be
necessary to solve, the state's fiscal
problems.
THE COUNCIL last week pegged the
state's budget deficit at $750 million and
said it has a potential cash flow
problem of $1 billion.
Michigan's grave economic circum-
stances demand that we take action to
get our house in order so that we don't
experience bankruptcy or default and
so that our bond rating doesn't
deteriorate," Faust said.
Faust said it is "unquestionably" not
possible to balance the state's budget
entirely through spending cuts.
Racismon
campus
worsens,
says 'U'
off icial
By SHARON SILBAR
Race relations on the University
campus have deteriorated so much in
recent years that attitudes among
students and professors today are much
like those of their counterparts in the
1950s, a University administrator said
last night.
University students, faculty mem-
bers, and administrators "have come
full circle in their racial attitudes, all
the way back to the late 1950s and early
1960s," Housing Program Director Ar-
chie Andrews told about 20 people
gathered for a discussion on campus
racism.
ANDREWS said the University's
poor reputation on racial matters - as
reflected in a recent college guide that
called Ann Arbor race relations "the
pits" - is a major stumbling block in
the way of decreasing racial tensions on
campus.
"The big issue in terms of improving
minority recruitment and retention is
improving Michigan's current image -
which is lousy," he said, "improving
the experience those students get while
they 'ar~e here, and increasing the

Campus-area landlords say the
"weatherization" proposal that will
appear on this April's city ballot is
flawed and will simply make it more
expensive for students to rent homes in
the city.
The proposal would require landlords
to improve their properties to meet cer-
tain energy-efficiency standards, in-
cluding adding insulation and
automatic, adjustable thermostats.
Proponents of the measure, including a
coalition of students who collected the
signatures to get it on the ballot, claim
landlords will save enough money in
lower monthly heating bills to pay for

BUT SEVERAL area landlords con-
tacted this week said that they will have
to pass on the cost of the improvements
to the tenants in the form of higher ren-
ts.
"It (the proposal) has got good
meaning," said Ed Gottschalk,
manager of Post Realities, "but over a
period of time most landlords will do it
anyway when it becomes cost-
effective."
"Landlords have already taken
measures to control (energy) costs,"
agreed Don Taylor, vice president of
McKinley Properties. "'he market it-
self dictates this."

SEVERAL landlords said that the
"weatherization" proposal might be
appropriate if most tenants paid for the
utilities they used. But since it usually
is landlords who pay the bills, they said
it should be their own decision - not the
city's - whether to convert to more
energy-efficient properties.
Dave Williams, the owner of Old
Town Realty, said he would have to
raise rents at his properties if the
proposal became law. "You can't
argue with saving energy," he said,
"but this proposal would raise as many
problems as it would solve."

FDR
ordered
space
colony
study

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Sending
refugees into space was among the
ideas that arose briefly during a
secret government study of what to do
with the people left homeless by
World War II, a privately published
book says.
Author Henry Field, an 80-year-old
retired anthropologist, said in a
telephone interview yesterday from
his Coconut Grove, Fla., home that
the idea of space colonies was aban-
doned because it would have "cost too
much."
FIELD HEADED a World War II
study group commissioned by
Presidlent Franklin Roosevelt called
"M" Project. His book on the work,
"M Project for F.D.R.: Studies in
Migration and Steelement", was
published privately in 1962 after the

material was declassified.
A copy of the book was found recen-
tly in the Temple University library
by Sandy Meredith, a clerk, and she
brought it to the attention of Mother
Jones magazine in San Francisco.
The magazine is publishing an article
about the study in its February-March
issue.
Field's discussion of space
colonization comes in the book's last
chapter.
"AMONG THE many flights of fan-
cy, the idea of sending by rocket the
Earth's surplus population looks at
the moment highly impracticable,"
Field wrote. "While temporary quar-
ters may eventually be established on
Venus or Mars, the probability of
colonization seems unlikely."

M ONOGRAMED long johns are a status symbol and
students fight the cold with an indoor beach party at
Lake Superior State College in the wind-whipped snow belt
of Michigan's Upper Peninsula. The school, some 350 miles
north of Detroit, draws many of its 2,500 students with a
tuition rate that is among the lowest in the state,$.1,320 per
year. In winter, temperatures are often below zero, but
yesterday the students got some respite-the overnight low
was a relatively warm 8 degrees. "We have two seasons
here: Winter and Fourth of July," said Todd Bieler of Whit-

star James Miller, after he falsified his records so that it
would appear that he had attended classes for the last year.
* 1915 - Engineering students invaded sororities to ask the
women what "moraturi slautamus" meant. The lucky
women who knew were asked to the Engineering Society's
dance. If they failed, it meant a dateless Saturday night at
home.
