UJniversity President Harold
Shapiro received a proposal for a
cdmprehensive study of Ann Arbor
hAsing last Thursday, but no
ecisions have been made on how
th study will be conducted.
"A study is necessary, but we are
not, sure exactly how we will
proceed," said University Vice Pres-
ideiit for Student Services Henry
Johnson, who proposed the study to
Shapiro. Johnson said organization
of the study should begin "within
the ,next couple weeks."
.Shapiro was unavailable for
Robert Hughes, director of
University housing, presented the
study to Johnson in February in
response to Ann Arbor's severe
housing crunch. Hughes said the
study is in part designed to put
pressure on the University to build
msore student housing. He said he
hoped the study would begin this
{spring and be completed by the end
of 1987.
Ed Salowitz, a University hous-
ing researcher and housing program
director, has recommended that the
study's commission include Univ-
ersity staff and faculty, city officials
and residents, and University stud-
The study will be the first such
stu'dy since 1965, when an 11-
:member commission studied Ann
Arbor housing and made proposals
such as building more student hous-
ing, including 400 family housing
units on North campus.

Four regents
address house

Special to The Daily
LANSING - Four University
regents addressed the final hearing
of the state House Subcommittee
on Higher Education yesterday,
encouraging the legislature to spend
more money on education rather
than support Gov. James Blanc-
hard's proposed tax rollback.
Blanchard has proposed taxes be
cut from 4.6 percent to 4.4 percent.
The regents also urged the com-
mittee to continue its efforts to
make a University education more
affordable and to make the Univ-
ersity more competitive with other
each of the 15 public institutions,
including regents Paul Brown,
Thomas Roach, Nellie Varner, and
James Waters, attended the two
hour hearing the committee called
to listen to the institutions' budget
Roach (D-Saline) said Michigan
residents support strong education
programs and will probably favor
increasing funding for education
beyond receiving the "relatively few
dollars" a rollback would provide.
"I have spoken out and I per-
sonally will continue to speak out
for the use of those funds in
support of education," Roach said.
WATERS (D-Muskegon) said
besides aiding education, these
funds could also be funneled into
programs 'like the prison system
and the public health system.
"I think most citizens who are

fully informed would be willing to
sacrifice these few dollars to sup-
port quality education. You simply
cannot have excellent institutions
without paying for them," said
Varner (D-Detroit).
Brown (D-Petoskey) said a
strong education system is
beneficial not only to state residentsi
but the state's economy as well. "I
don't feel the tax rollback is
appropriate. There are severe
problems in many, many areas and
that money is badly needed," Brown
He said the funds could be used
to strengthen the elementary and
secondary education system. "I
don't think those problems will
ever be solved until they change the
means of financing a K through 12
education," Brown said, adding that
financing public schools through
millages is not working now and
never will.
Roach reassured the committee
that the board is upholding its
obligations as governors of the
University and asked the committee
to uphold its obligation to provide
needed financial support. "Our
mutual progress hasbeen strong
and steady. Let's not quit now,"
Roach said.

MSA requests student input

(Continued from Page 1)
LSA freshman Brett Miner said
he didn't respond to the survey, but
thinks it could be effective. "I
wouldn't mind filling it out, but I
don't care enough to really make a
point of doing it," Miner said. "It's
a good way to establish contact, but
I don't know if the student response

will be that good."
Several students said the essay
format made the survey less ap-
pealing. "Most people aren't going
to take the time to fill it out," said
LSA sophomore Rich Warren. "It
should be formatted in an easier
way, such as multiple choice, so
people not already interested in

MSA would be more likely to ans-
Although Warren intends to
return the survey, he doesn't think
that most people will. Most stud-
ents who returned the survey pred-
icted that the response level will be
low, due to the essay questions and
general student apathy.

Court supports affirmative action


(Continued from Page 1)
Nordby feels the ruling will
reinforce the legality of University
affirmative action goals. Many
employers, including the
University, have been wary of

establishing voluntary affirmative
action programs for fear of reverse
discrimination suits.
"We always try to operate our
program in a legal fashion ... we

have been aware of advice from
(legal) counsel." She added that,
"The law is unfolding and we don't
want to be involved in anything
