Rep. Carl Pursell (R-Plymouth) called charges that
he has supported cutting federal student loans
Pursell, a five-term incumbent United States con-
gressman, was referring to statements which appear
on the campaign posters of Democratic challenger
Dean Baker. According to Baker, Pursell's support
of the controversial Gramm-Rudman budget
balancing act has directly resulted in cuts in
financial aid to University students.
"The way to cut the federal deficit is to reverse the
way it was created. If we cut military programs, we
could slash the deficit significantly without harm-

ing our national security," Baker said.
PURSELL, who has made deficit reduction his
primary campaign issue, argues that every program
must take cuts. Pursell said a budget that he wrote in
1985, along with a group of other Republican con-
gressmen, would balance the budget in five years
because it would "hold the line in spending on
student aid and military and domestic programs."
But Pursell denies supporting legislation which
specifically cuts aid to students and claims that the
Baker posters are misleading.

Association of Financial Aid Administrators,

Jewish holidays clash, with classes

Two important Jewish holi-
days- Rosh Hashanah and Yom
Kippur- coincide with classes
this month, creating an incon-
venience for many University
Rosh Hashanah begins this
evening and is celebrated for two
days. Yom Kippur begins on the
eve of Sunday, Oct. 12, and
continues until the next evening.
Although students commonly
have to miss classes and
reschedule exams to observeathe
holidays, the University has no
set policies for the such students.
ROBIN Jacoby, assistant to the
provost, said, "Faculty are
encouraged, as a courtesy,nto
adjust schedules. They are not
expected to cancel classes, but if
an exam is scheduled, they are
encouraged to change it."
Jacoby noted that many deans

on campus issue memos to
remind the faculty when the
religious holidays are and to
encourage courtesy if students
need to miss classes.
In 1983, Rosh Hashanah fell on
the first two days of classes.
Memos, such as the one Jacoby
described, were issued to the
faculty to encourage them to keep
their wait lists open longer than
usual. They also requested that
students not be penalized for
missing the first few days of
classes. Assistant Vice
President of Academic Affairs
Robert Holmes the University did
not want to appear "callous." The
University, he said, is sensitive to
these issues, and tries to handle
them in the best way possible.
