State bill may extend

better degree."
Rigorous training schedules often
leave very little time for study, and the
illusion that athletes are given "special
treatment" is largely a false one, ac-
cording to Dries. "There are a lot of
people around the University here that
don't realize how much time we put in,"
he said.
SENIOR linebacker Mike Mallory, a
co-captain on the Michigan football
team, disagrees. "It's tough, but I think
as an athlete I'm capable of graduating
in five years," he said.
MSU All-American Ralf Mosiejenko,
a senior kicker on the Spartan football

team, was more vocal. "I think it's
stupid," he said.
Mosiejenko, a USFL draft pick, said
the proposal would hurt more than help,
because it would encourage the athlete
to remain in school longer than
necessary. "That's a bunch of bull,"
he said. "They should be able to finish
in five."
Although Senator Holmes is op-
timistic about the bill, he does expect a
fight if it is passed. "I imagine it will be
tested in court," he said.
Holmes is still unsure about what
kind of penalties should be imposed on
universities that do not comply with the
proposed law - if and when it is passed.
"I don't know," Holmes said. "I
haven't got that far yet."

Gov. James Blanchard said last night
that the University is slated to get a
"large share" of $300 million in state
education increases to be presented to
the state legislature next Tuesday.
"I hate to admit it, being a Michigan
State alumni," said Blanchard, as he
took questions at the annual Sierra Club
banquet at Weber's Inn, "but the
University wil do quite well in the
budget recommendations."
Blanchard confirmed reports that the
University will get the largest share of
a newly-proposed fund to help support
higher education research in the state.
He said the $25 million fund would be
divided up mainly between the four
major research universities in the
state: The University of Michigan,
Michigan State, Wayne State, and
Michigan Tech.
"We felt that the money would be bet-
ter utilized if it were spent on univer-
sities ready to use it rather than to start
new programs," said Blanchard.
The governor also said that the
University would receive funds to
renovate the chemistry and natural
science buildings, although he refused
to comment on reports that the Univer-
sity would get a $16 million increase in
its operating budget.

Blanchard's speech to the conser-
vation group was optimistic as was his
State of the State speech Wednesday.
He said that because of the state's
slow economic development in the past
couple of years, environmental
programs implemented in the '70s are
only now beginning to receive adequate
Blanchard cited a $24 million fund to
complement federal dollars for toxic
waste clean-up that "would never have
been plossible if we hadn't been able to
turn Michigan's bankrupt position
Because of this turnaround, Blan-
chard said that "we can now not only
fund the old programs but we should be
able to start more."
Blanchard said that he announced 27
new environmental protection
programs in his State of the State ad-
dress Wednesday, including a $10
million pilot project to develop alter-
natives to toxic waste removal by using
Blanchard also announced his sup-
port for Michigan Wildlife legislation,
which according to Marty Hurbath, of
the National Resources Committee,
would designate certain areas of the
state as wildlife preserves.
