'U' wants state funding increase
By KERY MURAKAMI
The Board of Regents yesterday
told state officials that the University
needs a bare minimum increase of $26
million in state funds than it received
last year in order to keep up with
rising costs and keep tuition down.
In addition, the board said in its an-
nual budget request to the state that
the University needs an additional $9
million to regain ground lost during a
period of insufficient state funding in
the late 1970s and early 1980s.
THE AMOUNT of money granted
by the state has a direct impact on
tuition, faculty salaries, and program
Even during prosperous times, the
state rarely meets the University's
requests. And state officials have said
next year will be a financially tight
one for the state.
The $26 million increase request
would be a 7 percent increase over
last year's $203 million in state fun-
ding. Including the additional
requests, it would be a 10 percent in-
crease over the amount requested lat
BUT GOV. James Blanchard last
week told , student leaders that
because of slowing economic growth,
the state would probably only be able
to increase higher education spending
by the inflation rate - five percent.
If the state gives the University the
total $35 million it wants, said Robert

Holbrook, associate vice president for
academic affairs, the University
would not have to raise tuition.
Last year, the state fell about $7
million short of the $25 million in-
crease asked for by the University.
But as a result, the University had to
raise out-of-state tuition by 8 percent.
THE UNIVERSITY last year had
planned to raise in-state tuition by 6
percent. But folding to pressure from
Blanchard, the University froze
tuition for state residents and in-
curred a $2.2 million budget deficit.
Spokespeople for the state's office
of Management and Budget have said
the governor will probably not push
for another in-state tuition freeze
because of the tightness of the budget.
Holbrook, summarizing the Univer-
sity's 31-page budget request, told the
regents that the "University of
Michigan is a member of a very select
group of public universities of ex-
traordinary high quality, which is an
important resource for the people in
HE NOTED that the University has
maintained its quality, even after a
time when state support for the
University fell from 60 percent of the
University's budget in 1975 to 47.5
percent in 1983. Money from the state
now makes up a little over half the
University's general operating
"It's clear that the University has
been a bargain for the state, they
should reward us for our effective ef-
forts at cost containment," Holbrook
Holbrook said the University's
"status quo" budget request, includes
a 7 percent pay increase for faculty,
and about $500,000 for its minority
recruitment program begun last year.
THE ADDITIONAL request, he
said, would help alleviate such
"problem" areas as low faculty
salaries, financial aid for graduate
students, and to rebuilt the natural

the past several years, faculty
salaries slipped significantly. Con-
sequently, our salary scale, which
was once competitive with the best
private universities, slipped to 92 per-
cent of those peers, and is now only
modestly ahead of the public peer
university average; indeed, it is now
exceeded by some, notably the
University of California at Berkley,"
the report said. It asks for $2 million
to increase faculty salaries.
The report goes on, at the current
time, the net cost of completing a doc-
toral program at (the University) is
nearly equal to that of the best private
institutions, yet our fellowship sup-
port falls far below theirs."
"ALMOST FOUR years ago a
University study identified a need for
$4,500,000 in additional graduate
school monies. Adjusted for inflation,
that would now be close to $6 million,"
the request said.
In addition, the request says that
the natural science departments -
astronomy, biology, chemistry,
geology, math, physics, and statistics
- are "comparitively speaking,
among the weakest, and lease
adequately supported, in the Univer-
sity. None, except the cluster of units
that comprise the biological sciences,
is in the 'Top 10' of its cohorts."
"With budgets approaching $20
million, our analysis indicates these
units are underfunded by as much as
25 percent with peer or even less than
peer institutions," the request says.

student and co-chair of the council.
The council yesterday continued to
make progress in its deliberations but
became tied up with the question of
whether hazing, and other actions -

The debate yesterday was a miscr-
cosm of the larger code issue. On one
hand, some councilmembers, in-
cluding Social Work Prof. Ann Har-
tman, said the University must act to
protect its members.
BUT OTHERS, including Cohen
questioned whether the University
should have authority over the per-
sonal lives of its members.
Dan Sharphorn, assistant policy
advisor to the University's vice-
president for academic affairs, who is
serving as a legal advisor to the coun-
cil, argued the Greek system may be
perceived to be a part of the Univer-
sity, and cited a case where another
university was sued for an accident
that happened in a fraternity.
The council decided to table the
issue and invite representatives of the
Greek system to speak on the matter.
Councilmembers also questioned if
co-ops should also be included.

'Defector' details CIA plot
at Soviet news conference
MOSCOW - Vitaly Yurchenko, denying he defected and scorning
questions about his connection to the KGB, made his first public ap-
pearance in the Soviet Union yesterday and insisted he was kidnapped
and drugged by the CIA.
Flanked by Soviet officials, Yurchenko appeared at a news conference
in a Foreing Ministry auditorium packed with Western reporters and
Yurchenko left the United States on Nov. 6 in a surprise ending to what
the State Department said was a defection three months earlier by one of
the KGB's senior spies.
The Soviets frequently broke into laughter as Yurchenko derided the
CIA, its director William Casey and some of the Western correspondents
who asked questions.
He said he was abducted Aug. 1 on the steps of St. Peter's Basilica in
Rome and taken to Washington, where he was first kept in a hospital and
then in a CIA "safe house" in the suburb of Fredericksburg, Va.
Yurchenko said CIA agents gave him drugs and tried to convince him
he was a traitor to his homeland.
But Yurchenko would not say directly whether he worked for the KGB
secret police and intelligence agency. U.S. officials say Yurchenko ran
the KGB's Washington office from 1975-80 while working at the embassy
Botha proposes panel reform
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - President P.W. Botha, in what the
government calls its continuing reform of apartheid, yesterday asked a
parliamentary advisory panel to search for ways to accept black mem-
The council, which currently has 41 whites, 13 people of mixed race and
six Asians, is supposed to settle the differences among the three
segregated chambers of Parliament - one for whites, another for Asians,
and a "colored," or mixed-race chamber.
"Reform means new adaptations," Botha told the 60-member
President's Council in Cape Town. "New circumstances call for a new
Police, meanwhile, said violence flared anew in seven black areas
yesterday, killing one black and injuring two whites. And the government
reported that unemployment among whites, Asians and people of mixed-
race ancestry rose more than 130 percent in the past year.
Although the government says it is reforming apartheid, critics argue
that changes in the system have been insufficient to meet black demands
and end 15 months of riots.
Reagan signs bill raising debt
WASHINGTON - The government narrowly averted default as
President Reagan signed interim legislation last night raising federal
borrowing authority - the national debt limit - to $1.9 trillion.
The bill was passed earlier yesterday afternoon by the House and was
sent to the President to sign. The measure postpones a credit crunch
through Dec. 6 by raising the government's $1.824 trillion line of credit by
The Senate passed the measure on a voice vote Wednesday night.
Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole, R-Kan., said the action would
"relieve the president of any burden while he was at the summit" next
week with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev.
Without action, the government would have been in default. The
president had ordered federal agencies to stop issuing new checks star-
ting Friday if Congress had not increased the debt limit.
Volcano inies Colhmbian town
BOGOTA, Columbia - A volcano that had been rumbling to life for
months erupted early yesterday, melting its snowcap and sending down
torrents of water and mud that buried four sleeping towns with a total
population of 70,000.
Early estimates of the dead ranged up to 20,000.
The Langunilla River became a rushing wall of mud that destroyed at
least 85 percent of Armero, a coffee-farming Andes Mountain town of
50,000 people 30 miles from the Nevado del Riz volcano and 105 miles
northwest of Bogata.
"Armero doesn't exist anymore," Red Cross rescue worker Fernando
Duque said in an interview from the scene of Todelar radio.
A civil defense spokesman, Maj. Hugo Ardila, told a midday news con-
ference in Bogota that about 10,000 people had been found alive in Armero
up to that time.
Israeli government crisis ends
TEL AVIV, Israel - Ariel Sharon gave Prime Minister Shimon Peres an
apology of sorts late yesterday for criticizing his policies, thus ending a
crisis that nearly brought down the coalition government, other Cabinet
The prime minister said Wednesday he intended to fire the outspoken
Sharon, who is trade and industry minister, Sharon accused him of con-
ducting secret peace negotiations with Jordan and Palestinians, and
following policies that would "cost a great deal of blood."
"The affair is over since Sharon addressed all the points raised by the
prime minister," Education Minister Yitzhak Navon of Peres' Labor
Party said on Israel television. "As far as we're concerned there is regret
or an admission that he either had not meant it or retracted the position
Navon added, however, that if Sharon attacked Peres in the future,
"there'll be a dismissal notice, and that's that."
Peres walked past reporters after hours of consulations and declined
