Report calls

for

more

mnority

aid

Plan focuses on recruitment

By SEAN JACKSON
The University may propose sup-
plying all qualified in-state minority
students with financial aid awards of
$5,500 per year in an effort to increase
minority enrollments, according to a
confidential report obtained by the
Daily.
Supplying all qualified minority
students with such aid would require
the University to substantially increase
its financial aid budget, according to
the report authored by Niara Sudarkasa,
associate vice president for academic
affairs.
She is the University administrator
responsible for minority concerns.
BOTH SUDARKASA and Billy Frye,
vice president for academic affairs and
provost refused to comment on the con-
tents of the report, "I think it is going to
be a very important report," Frye said.
The report is the first installment of a
three-part series on improving
recruitment and retention of minority

students at the University.
It calls for a reduction in the impor-
tance of standardized tests in the ad-
mission process, an increase in
promotion of the University to minority
students, increased personal contact
with minority students during the ad-
mission process, and more financial aid
counseling for minorities.
THE MICHIGAN Student Assembly,
which has twice attempted to gain
copies of the report through Freedom of
Information Act requests, may file a
lawsuit against the University to obtain
the report said accompanying documen-
ts.
MSA maintains that the report is a
public document. The ideas presented
in the documents should be open to
public review, MSA says.
"There are students who are very
concerned about this issue," said MSA
President Scott Page.
THERE should be input on the

problems the report addresses said
Page, but "there hasn't been ongoing
dialogue between (Sudarkasa's) office
and students," he said. "Now that they
have completed the report they are not
going to take time to explain it" to
students, he added.
The report which was completed in
October, will be released officially
Monday. An implementation plan for
Sudarkasa's report will also be
released then in addition to the Office of
Affirmative Action's annual report on
minorities at the University.
These materials will be presented to
the University's regents at their mon-
thly meeting next Thursday.
DURING THE fall of 1984, campus
minority enrollment was recorded at
11.3 percent.
The University set a goal of 10 per-
cent black enrollment on campus in
1970. So far, they have been unable to

Ann Arbor: Film capital of the Midwest?

By DAVID BARD
Hollywood may still be the focal point
for many of today's cinema stars, but
Ann Arbor has become a haven for
filmmakers and enthusiasts alike.
When the 23rd annual Ann Arbor
Film Festival opens at the Michigan
Theatre next week, the event will draw
entries from all across the United
States and several foreign countries.
ACCORDING to communication
Prof. Frank Beaver, the festival is a
place where independent filmmakers
can express ideas in public that
wouldn't normally be shown in com-
mercial contexts. Beaver said these

Arbor. More than a fair share of atten-
tion from Hollywood is paid to the city.
One of the reasons for this, according
to Beaver, is that major industryper-
sonalities realize film audiences do not
exist solely on the WestnCoast or in big
Eastern cities. They find Ann Arbor a
good cross-section of the Midwest, and
are eager to get a response to new
releases.
Columbia Pictures will often screen a
new film in Ann Arbor before its
national release. Beaver said numerous
films have seen first light here, the
latest being The Razor's Edge. One of
the most memorable previews was

works are sometimes called ex-
perimental or underground films.
Beaver, who teaches film production,
has been involved in the festival in the
past.
"The year that I was a judge at the
Ann Arbor festival, the film that we
chose went on later to be reviewed by

Variety, right beside The Other Side of
Midnight," he said. "Sometimes the
films and the filmmakers go on to win
Oscars, even though they had their first
showing here in Ann Arbor."
INDEPENDENT filmmakers are not
the only people with their eye on Ann

Workers probe East

LANSING (UPI)-Gov. James Blanchard
yesterday vetoed legislation banning
welfare abortions in Michigan - a
widely expected move which sets the
stage for a major showdown in the
House.
It marked the 14th time since 1978
that a Michigan governor has vetoed ef-
forts to cut off state funding for the
operations.
WHILE THOSE vetoes have been
sustained in the past, abortion foes
have their best chance yet of winning.
Anti-abortion activists, in fact,
believe they will have the votes needed
when the House takes up the override -

probably next Tuesday.
Abortion rights advocates admit they
face an uphill fight, but they are not
giving up.
BLANCHARD, in his veto message,
said "I consider it wrong to deny poor
women, simply because they are poor,
access to medical procedures that are
presently legal and available to the rest
of the women of the state."
The governor waited until about an
hour and. a half before a 4:55 p.m.
deadline before vetoing the bill. Had he
missed the deadline, the measure
would have become law.

Michigan is one of only 12 states
which continue to fund abortions under
their Medicaid programs. Six of them,
including New York and California, do
so under court order.
The federal government provides no
support for the operations.
During the last fiscal year, the state
paid for 18,600 elective abortions at a
total cost of $5.9 million.
The bill prohibits the use of state fun-
ds to pay for abortions except when
necessary to save the mother's life.
The bill passed the House 77-32 and
cleared the Senate on a 25-8 tally.

Monroe said the project is part of a

The secret to getting a prize-winning tan, according to
