to pay
in fines
The Union's University Club Bar must
pay a total of $600 in fines for two
violations of its liquor license which oc-
curred when alcohol was sold to non-
club members.
The meeting between State Liquor
Control Commission representatives
and U-Club officials was a pre-trial con-
ference to discuss the club's violations.
It was held at the request of the U-Club
board yesterday.
HOWEVER, the administrative law
judge who was in charge of the con-
ference said that the penalties will be
more severe if the club should acquire
more violations.
The U-Club was cited during the
summer and again this fall for violating
its "private club" liquor license when it
sold drinks to liquor control officials.
Under this license, only members of the
University Club - students, faculty,
and staff members and alumni - are
allowed to purchase alochol.
Club members may purchase alcohol
for guests who accompany them to the

Reagan views
budget freeze
to cut deficit

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON - White House Chief
of Staff James Baker said yesterday
that a federal spending freeze is "an
option that the president is con-
sidering," and Senate Majority Leader-
elect Robert Dole indicated strong
congressional support for the concept.
Baker and Dole met to discuss what
to do about the massive federal deficits,
running above the $200 billion mark,
and afterward the White House staff
chief emphasized that "no decisions
have been made" by Reagan.
REAGAN IS more than halfway
through a line-by-line examination of
next year's budget and will make cuts
in the spending requests of each depar-
tment, spokesman Larry Speakes said
ONLY SOCIAL Security is off limits,
because of Reagan's 1984 campaign
promise not to cut the retirement
Speakes said the Department of
Education, spun off into a separate
department by President Jimmy Car-
ter and which Reagan tried to eliminate
his first two years in office, will remain
alive, although possible with less

"ALL departments will have cuts or
reductions in growth of spending than
had been planned," Speakes said.
Defense spending, part of which has
already been set in law, would continue
growing, although by how much was
still in dispute.
In their talks, White House officials
were trying to put together a budget
package for the upcoming fiscal year
that could limit outlays to the $830
billion figure projected for this year. In-
terest on the national debt, pegged at
some $130 billion, is not included in that
The budget advisers have set a goal
of slashing federal spending by $45
billion in 1986, $85 billion in 1987 and
$110 billion in 1988, but the president
has not yet adopted that recommen-
dation, one official said.
Such a plan would force the deficit
down to a range of about $165 billion to
$170 billion in 1986 and to a bit more
than $100 billion in 1988.
The 1985 deficit is projected at $206
billion, which would surpass the record
of $195.4 billion in 1983. It was $174.3
billion in 1984.

meet over

Leaders of the Michigan Student Assembly
met yesterday with the chairman of the
Michigan Union Board of Representatives
(MUBR) in an attempt to clear up the recent
controversy over the appointment of students
to the Union board.
MUBR, which consists of 11 students and
seven faculty members, makes many of the
decisions regarding the operation of the Union.
UNTIL LAST May, an MSA interviewing
committee, including two student represen-
tatives from MUBR, made the recommen-
dations to MSA on appointing students to

But an amendment to MUBR's charter ap-
proved by University Vice President for
Student Services Henry Johnson in May took
away the MSA committee's right to screen the
applicants by creating a MUBR panel-which
includes one MSA representative
to handle the applicants.
MSA protested the change saying the move
violated their rights as specified in the regent's
bylaws to appoint students to University com-
mittees. MSA vice president Steve Kaplan sent
a letter of protest to MUBR on Monday and in-
formed the assembly of his correspondence at
the meeting Tuesday night.
BUT AFTER yesterday's meeting between

LSA senior Michael Perigo, chairperson of
MUBR, and MSA leaders, the two groups ap-
peared closer to working out a solution.
"We presented out views. They presented
their views," said Kaplan, "and we came away
with a clear picture of each other's interests."
Perigo seemed optimistic about the
discussion. "It was a really good meeting. It
helped get our views out in the open," Perigo
HE SAID part of the problem stemmed from
"bad communication among the wrong
"MSA was upset that we didn't go in front of
their assembly with the amendment," Perigo

said. "We only went through their represen-
tative, John Haughton."
When the amendment was being considered
last spring, MSA didn't know the change might
actually be approved, Kaplan said. Last year's
assembly was notified of the amendment, and
the group sent a letter to Johnson outlining the
assembly's opposition, he said.
AFTER THE assembly took over, Kaplan
said, MSA president Scott Page and Haughton
spoke with Johnson, who gave them the im-
pression that he would not approve the change
without further discussion.
Controversy arose when MSA saw adver-

Asbestos concerns

University employees who work in Lorch Hall con-
tinue to remain concerned about the traces of
asbestos found in the air in that building.
The traces of asbestos left after asbestos insulation
was removed from the pipes in the building are under
the maximum amounts allowed by the government.
PROF. THOMAS Holt, director of the University's
Center for Afroamerican and African Studies (CAAS)
which is housed in Lorch, said he is concerned about
the situation.
Holt added that he was concerned because the
asbestos level tests were done about three weeks af-

ter the asbestos was removed from the building's
wing which is under construction. He acknowledged
the testing results and added, "but that of course ...
was done after the fact."
It is possible that higher levels of asbestos in the air
were present during the time it was removed.
"IT'S A big question mark," he said. "It would
seem logical to me that the levels would be higher
(during the asbestos removal)," he added. "We have
no reason to believe we were exposed to hazardous
levels but at the same time, we don't know."
Barry Johnson of the Washtenaw County Health
Department's environmental safety division, agrees.
The levels of asbestos "certainly would have been

' workers
higher at the time of the removal," he said.
No asbestos level tests were taken during the
removal because the workers who removed the
asbestos were confident that their removal method
would not allow the asbestos to contaminate the air,
said Tom Schlaff, the University project engineer
overseeing the Lorch Hall renovations.
THE UNIVERSITY'S occupational health and
safety office didn't perform any tests until Nov. 12,
16, and 20 because University employees working n
Lorch did not complain until Nov. 9, said Gary Monroe
the office's manager.

Mazda announces plant, UAW negotiations

From AP and UPI
DETROIT-Mazda Motor Corp. an-
nounced yesterday it will spend $450
million for an all new assembly plant on
an old Ford Motor Co. site, and will be
the first Japanese automaker to
bargain with the United Auto Workers
Mazda, Japan's third-largest car-
maker, said it planned to break ground
in Flat Rock, Mich., this spring and
begin turning out cars in the fall of 1987,
gradually building to a top output of
240,000 cars a year by 3,500 employees.
THE COMPANY said it was
negotiating the sale of some of the cars'

to Ford Motor Co., which would market
them under the Ford name as 1988
Unlike the three other Japanese
companies with U.S. car and truck
plants, Mazda included the United Auto
Workers union when it set up discussion,-
eight months ago with local and state.
political leaders and auto supply com-
The company and the UAW said they
had reached "an understanding" about
labor force representation at the plant.
"WE DO have a basic understanding
with Mazda about the operation at Flat

Rock and we will have moreI
about that in due course,"
President Owen Beiber said.

to say

"We are particularly pleased to
acknowledge Mazda's statement that it
is going to participate in the United
States market by producing cars
locally," Bieber said. "That is what we
have been saying, in essence, to all the
Japanese auto companies."
Mazda seated Bieber next to thei
highest-ranking member of its
delegation, Managing Director
Hirotaka Iida, during the company's
Detroit news conference. Bieber said

later, "I wouldn't be here if we didn't
have the basics put together."
Governor James Blanchard, who
visited Mazda's Hiroshima plant in
June, said supplies could generate
three to five times the 3,500 jobs at the
site. A large construction force also will
be required.
"It will reverberate throughout the
Detroit area and Michigan for years to
come, perhaps 20,000 jobs, I don't
know..." he said.
"You are witnessing, I believe, a
milestone in United States-Japanese
relations," Blanchard said.
