Shairotells House of'U budget woes
(ContinuedfromPage 1)recommendation for an increase in recommendations on financial aid of the state and helps promote the
higher education spending, including spending, calling the creation of the state's economic development.

budget. The measure has already
passed the Republican-dominiated
Senate, but it. is expected to face op-
position in the House.
"I am not going to vote for a tax roll-
back," announced Rep. Dominic
Jacobetti (D-Neguanee) at the
education subcommittee hearing
Jacobetti, who is not a member of the
subcommittee but chairman of the
House Appropriations Committee, said
that "we cannot afford to raise tuition
anymore. Soon, only the rich kids will
be going to school. All the taxpayers
are going to have to contribute, not just
the poor kids."
JACOBETTI'S remarks followed
testimony by University President
Harold Shapiro that "there is no way
(for the University) to freeze in-state
While praising the governor's

$14.3 million more for the University,
Shapiro pointed out that increasing pay
for the University's employees by the
projected 5 percent inflation rate would
cost the University $15.6 million.
"This leaves no money for anything
else," he said, adding that money is,
needed to increase minority recruit-
ment and retention programs and make
up for the University's $1.4 million
budget deficit last year.
THE UNIVERSITY is currently
looking at two budget models in which
tuition would be increased by 5 percent
and 9 percent. Without any state funds.
in addition to those recommended by
the governor, a 5 percent increase
would result in a $4.4 million deficit, ac-
cording to University Vice President
for Academic Affairs Billy Frye. A 9
percent increase would result in a slight
Shapiro praised the governor's

Michigan Work Study Program and the
Michigan Com petitive Scholarship
Program "things we definitely need."
Shapiro criticized a plan by House
Democrats to increase financial aid
spending by taking money out of an in-
stitution's general funds.
"OBVIOUSLY WE'RE in favor of more
financial aid spending, but when the
money has to come out of the in-
stitutions, we're opposed to it," said
Shapiro. "Access to low-quality
education is a hoax."
Shapiro also raised the proposed $25
million research excellence fund,
which would support the four "research
institutions" in the state: the Univer-
sity of Michigan, Michigan State,
Wayne State, and Michigan
Technological University.
"It solves two problems," he said. "It
helps support the research universities

When asked by Rep. Bob Emerson
(D-Flint) whether he thought the
research fund would be better spent to
cut the University's budget deficit,
Shapiro replied that it would be "inap-
propriate. It's time we start doing
something to support the research in-
stitutions of this state."
Shapiro said the deficit would be bet-
ter eliminated by modest increases in
tuition of 4 to 5 percent.
Yesterday's was the second of three
hearings held by the subcommittee to
discuss the state's public colleges and
universities. The subcommittee, after
deliberations, will release its budget
sometime in April. After the Sente goes
through a similar process next month,
a joint committee of the Senate and
House will iron out the state's budget in

'U' claims Picozzi set fire to gain Yale admission

"He didn't seem any different than he
normally did. He didn't seem
preocupied or depressed," Cronin said.
SAM DIMON, a former law student
who was associated with Picozzi
through the Christian Law Students
group, also testified that he was with

Picozzi on March 7.
He said that in the afternoon, he and
Picozzi talked about a panel on abortion
that was to take place on March 10. "I'd
say he was upbeat. He gave the im-
pression of being interested in the topic
and looking forward to the panel," said
Edward Weise; an investment
manager with the Baltimore firm
Tiroe-Price who was a close friend of
Picozzi's during his undergraduate
years at Yale, was the last person to
speak with Picozzi before the fire. At
12;11 a.m. on March 8th, Weise
received a call from Picozzi that lasted
14 minutes. he could not remember
what was said.
IN CROSS-examination, Davis asked
if it was unusual for Picozzi to call him

at that hour and Weise said no.
Davis asked Weise if Picozzi was
"crestfallen" when he was rejected
from Yale Law School as an un-
dergraduate. "He was unhappy. 1
wouldn't say crestfallen," Weise.
replied. He also said that Michigan was;
not Picozzi's first choice.
Two additonal medical experts also
testified today.
DAVID SMITH a plastic surgeon
from the Detroit Medical Center,
testified for the defense. He said that
the photos of Picozzi's burns were con-
sistent to a reasonable medical certain-
ty with what Picozzi said happened the
night of the fire.
Irving Feller, the director of the
University of Michigan's burn center,
testified that Picozzi's burns could have

been compatible with the type of flash
fire tha the University's arson expert
said occurred when Picozzi ignited
gasoline in his room.
Feller examinied Picozzi while he
was at the University Hospital after
falling from a window in the burning
After testimony today, Davis said
that it was a good day for the Univer-
sity. he said "Mrs. Picozzi was ob-
viously lying."
Davis also said that the defendants
medical experts contradicted their ar-
son experts.
Defense attorney Alan Silber said his
medical expert showed that the burns
that Picozzi suffered were more con-
sistent with what Picozzi said occurred
on the night of the fire than the Univer-
sity's theory.

Senate approves funds for MX
WASHINGTON-The MX missile easily cleared its second and final
Senate ih urdle yesterday and the struggle over the multiwarhead weapon,
shifted to the House, where opponents conceded President Reagan's powers
of persuasion are as "awesome as the power of the weapon itself."
The Senate, which Tuesday voted 55-45 to authorize $1.5 billion for 21 of the
10-warhead missiles in fiscal 1985, voted by an identical margin yesterday
afternoon to appropriate the money to the Pentagon, which can actually get
the money if the House also approves the missile next week in two similar
The was less than three hours of Senate debate yesterday, and most of the
talking was by oppenents,
The focus now shifts to the House, where President Reagan already has
begun his lobbying effort in anticipation of floor votes to authorize the money
on next Tuesday and a vote to appropriate the money the next Thursday.
Ohio S&Ls may reopen today
COLUMBUS-Gov. Richard Celeste and officers of 68 closed savings and
loans agreed yesterday on emergency regulations they hope will permit
them to begin reopening today-with some account holders permitted to
withdraw only up to $750 a month.
Thomas Batties, state superintendent of savings and loans, said that limit
would apply to institutions that want to open but are unable to satisfy the
state that they have obtained enough insurance to cover all deposits.
Institutions that apply for federal insurance or otherwise demonstrate to
state officials that they can meet depositors' demands would be allowed to
open on a full-service basis, with no limits on customer withdrawals or
deposits, he said.
Celeste and the thrift officers met to put finishing touches to the
regulations only 10 hours after the state Legislature approved a bill, and the
governor signed it, requiring the closed state chartered institutions to apply
for federal deposit insurance, or equivalent coverage before reopening.
Celeste ordered the institutions closed Friday after mass withdrawals by
depositors at a few institutions following the collapse a week earlier of the
Home State Saving Bank of Cincinnati.
Court upholds injection death
WASHINGTON-States may continue to use deadly drugs to execute con-
demned murderers despite arguments that such lethal injections may cause
slow and painful death, the Supreme Court ruled yesterday.
In a 9-0 decision the court said the Food and Drug Administration is not
required to test the drugs. The ruling overturned a 1983 decision by the U.S.
Circuit Court of Appeals here that ordered the FDA to ban lethal injections
until it determined they kill quickly and painlessly.
The lower court's ruling was suspended by Chief Justice Warren Burger
last year,' allowing states to 'use the injections while the Supreme Court
reviewed the case.
The lethal injection case stemmed from a lawsuit by death row inmates in
Texas and Oklahoma who said the FDA should have to make sure drugs used
in executions do not "produce excruciatingly slow and painful death."
Lawyers representing the condemned inmates said the FDA showed more
interest in protecting "dogs and horses" by testing drugs used in mercy
killing of animals.
Rebels continue fight mnBeirut
BEIRUT, LEBANON-The leader of a revolt against President Amin
Gemayel's policies took over as commander of Lebanon's largest Christian
militia yesterday and the mutineers clashed for a third day with government
troops in the port of Sidon.
Prime Minister Rashid Karami said army commander Gen. Michel Aoun
and chief of state Maj. Gen. Mahmoud Tayy Abu Dirgham were summoned
to a Cabinet meeting and told to take "all necessary measures to end the
dangerous developments" in Sidon.
Red Cross officials said 10 people have been killed and at least 40 wounded
in the provincial capital of south Lebanon since fighting broke out between
government troops and Christian militiamen on Monday.
A communique read to reporters at the rebels' headquarters in east Beirut
said Samir Geagea, whose fighters seized Christian areas north of the
capital last week, had been named chief of staff of the Lebanese Forces.
Geagea's-name headed a 10-man executive leadership, which the com-
munique said had been elected to govern the militia independent of
Gemayel's Phalange Party. The party had dominated the coalition of
Christian factions formed in 1980 to fight Moslems.
Army subdues Bolivian strike
LA PAZ, Bolivia-The president mobilized the army against rampaging
strikers in the streets of the capital yesterday. Troops and tanks drove away
thousands of demonstrators who blocked traffic, forced shops to close, and
set off dynamite charges on the 13th day of a paralyzing general strike.
Armored units, soldiers, and national guardsmen took up positions on
roads leading to La Paz and near the presidential palace. Troopers fired
shots into the air and lobbed tear gas cannisters into crowds of strikers. Air
force planes flew patterns overhead.
No injuries were reported. Most military units returned to their barracks
by yesterday afternoon, the strikers were gone from the streets, and
national guardsmen patrolled the city without resistance.
The general strike continued in an effort by major unions to obtain huge
pay increases as compensation for 2,700 percent inflation and to drive

President Hernan Zuazo from office in favor of a socialist state.

Douvan, who was joined by LSA
Dean Peter Steiner, commented briefly
before being quizzed on the state of the
college and her views of it by four panel
members of students and faculty.
Tom Weisskopf, an RC professor,
asked Douvan how the college could
better involve faculty outside the RC.
"Part of the original vision was that
people would rotate through the
Residential College," Douvan said. The
influx of new faculty was supposed to
promote continued growth, but that
policy has failed, she said.
publicity for the RC, or "getting the
dean to lean on the departments" may
be ways of getting more LSA faculty in-
to the Residential College, Douvan ex-
RC professor Matt Rhone wondered if
the influx of new faculty would displace
the "non-traditional" faculty that had
formed the base of the college. The core
faculty would be retained, Douvan said,
but "you cannot project who is going to
make the next great innovation."
Douvan advocated a pattern of study
in which students supplement their
major with a variety of courses.
"I THINK inter-disciplinary
studies... is a wonderful guard against
arrogance," she said. Such a pattern of
study raises valuable issues and gives
the student a better perspective on his
or her field, Douvan said.

Douvan also said she subscribes to
the theory that there is value in the non-
traditional education. "I'm a great
supporter of experimental education,"
such as field study, writing and
producing a play for a thesis, she said.
The response of students and faculty
was enthusiastic and favorable. "I'm
absolutely delighted," said Susan
Wright, a science professorsin the RC.
"It's always good to have new ideas...
She would bring that but be sensitive to
the present needs of the students as
well," Wright said.
"I FEEL very positive," said Cynthia
Sowers, an arts professor. "I think she
is very poised and has some very in-
teresting ideas about education."
Sower is impressed by Douvan's com-
mitment to the undergraduate program
and her respect for quality and inter:
disciplinary education.
Douvan, currently serving on the RC
review committee, admitted she does
not know everything about the college.
But that does not worry students.
"If she isn't quite aware about what's
going on in the Residential College, she
is going to find out. She seems
motivated to understand what this is all
about," said RC senior Chris Culliton.
"I think she's the right person," said
RC senior Jake London. "If she wants
to do it, we'll be very happy."
Douvan is currently the co-director of
the Center for Women's Studies and
holds the Catherine Neafie Kellogg
Professor of Psychology Chair, one of
the highest honors at the University.
She earned her undergraduate degree
at Vassar College and has a Masters
degree and Ph.D from the University.
Cash taken
A small amount of cash was taken
from the Continental Deli at 315 South
State after someone had pried open the
front door sometime before the
restaurant opened on Monday.
Auto damaged
A car stereo was ripped out of the
dashboard of a car parked in the
Catherine Street parking structure
Monday evening. The thief had ap-
parently broken the front window of the
auto and made off with the radio after
causing over $455 of damage to the
Campus thefts
A student in Angell Hall reported the
theft of a wallet containing $35 late
Monday night, and a purse valued at $45
was taken from a student in the C.C.
Little Building on the same night.
