Regents seek $50
million from state

mary areas of need.

FLINT - The University's Board
of Regents yesterday approved a
$50.2 million request in state
appropriations for the Ann Arbor
campus for the 1988-89 fiscal year.
The annual request will now be
sent to the state's Department of
Management and Budget, which is
expected to begin hearings on the
request in November. Governor
James Blanchard will then formulate
his own recommendations on the re-
quest and send it to the House of
Representatives and the Senate in
late January. The state legislature is
expected to decide how much money
will be allocated to the University
by July.
But University Vice President for
Government Relations Richard
Kennedy acknowleged that the state
is unlikely to allocate the full $50
million. Last year, the University
sought $45 million in state funds
but only received about $16 million.
This year's budget request is "an
accurate reflection as to our best
judgment of what the University re-
ally needs," Kennedy said. But he
added, "We clearly are not going to
meet that entire request through the
appropriations process." Tuition ac-
counts for nearly all the University's
revenues not covered by the state.
The budget request, a 19-page
document, is broken down into 11
components, each viewed by the
Regents and the University's execu-
tive officers as the University's pri-

Faculty and staff salaries are the
largest component in this year's
budget request. The University re-
quested $13.3 million in funds to
pay for a 6 percent salary increase for
faculty and highly specialized
technical staff, according to the re-
quest. The University is lagging be-
hind its peer institutions in offering
competitive salaries and therefore
must strengthen its position via the
compensation program, University
Vice President for Academic Affairs

James Duderstadt read from the re-
The second largest component is
for fixed costs, which include
expenditures on staff benefits, sup-
plies, insurance, utilities, and for
such construction as the Medical
Science Research Building II and the
Chemical Sciences Building. The
University requested $9.4 million to
cover the fixed costs.
In commenting on the budget re-
quest, many of the regents stressed
the importance of the University to
the state.

Prof. to stand trial for assault

4A University professor has been
Aicouid'of sexually assaulting a stu-
dent, according to Washtenaw
County Circuit Court records.
Thomas Rosenboom, the
University's "writer-in-residence,"
declined comment on the alleged in-
cident yesterday, and defense attorney
Leslie Seeligson was out of town
and unavailable for comment. But

Seeligson's associate, Larry Jordan,
said the accusation "is all a case of
mistaken identity."
"Rosenboom feels he is com-
pletely innocent," Jordan said.
But assistant prosecuting attorney
Larry Burgess countered, "(The
woman) says she got a good look at
him," and that there was enough
light for her to clearly see her as-
sailant, he said.

Jordan declined comment on the
possibility of filing a civil suit
against the woman, saying he would
be able to talk about it "in a few
days." But a friend of the com-
plainant confirmed the defendant re-
cently filed a civil suit against the

Special to the Daily
FLINT - State Sen. 'Joseph
Conroy (D-Flint) made an unex-
pected appearance at yesterday's
meeting of the University's Board of
Regents to discuss the state legisla-
ture's dispute with University out-
of-state enrollment figures.
Conroy said the issue was blown
out of proportion during the state
budget process last summer - when
legislators threatened to put a cap on
the non-resident enrollment ratio -
but he defended the right of qualified
in-state students to take priority in
the admissions process.
"Our tax dollars built this
school," Conroy said during the
public comments session. "We want
our children to be educated here and

stay here."
Conroy's appearance, the first
such interaction between the legisla-
ture and the board, was a prelude to
meetings by a panel of government
officials and regents that will address
the conflict next month. The panel
includes Sen. William Sederburg (R-
East Lansing), Sen. John Schwartz
(R-Mount Pleasant), Rep. Morris
Hood (D-Detroit), Rep. Robert
Emerson (D-Flint),; and an unnamed
representative of the State Depart-
ment of Management and Budget.
The board is also expected to ap-
point two regents to the committee

ICC celebrates 50 years

During the Depression, m a n y
University students were afraid they could
only stay in school if they starved or
went homeless. A group of graduate stu-
dents found a solution in 1932 by renting
a house and doing their own chores. They
cut room and board expenses to two dol-
lars a week and made house decisions
through democratic meetings.
The first cooperative in Ann Arbor was
This week, the Inter-Cooperative
Council celebrates its 50th anniversary
with a picnic, house tours, an alumni
dinner, and several other events.
With more than 500 residents and
more than 10,000 alumni, co-ops have
not lost their appeal. There are almost no
vacancies in ICC houses, said Audrey
Haberman, the council's educational
The co-op's alumni include author
Arthur Miller, who was a member of the
Wolverine Dining Cooperative, and en-
trepreneur Tom Monaghan, who lived in
Lester House.

The reasons why students choose to
live in co-ops have varied over the years.
' Since the first co-op, the Michigan
Socialist House, was founded, "The Uni-
versity itself has changed," said Jim
Jones, executive director of the ICC. "The
idea of the co-ops was less radical when it
first started."
'Everybody here is unusual,
and everybody is accepted
right away.'
- Nancy Lindquist, a
Lenny Bruce house resident
Students sought cooperatives for their
social context only during two periods,
Jones said. "In the 1930s, during the De-
pression, students were literally starving.
There was then a driving need for
cooperatives. In the early 1970s, there
was a 'cultural revolution', and the ethic
to take more control of their lives."

Today, students live in cooperatives for
many reasons. "In a big university, peo-
ple are looking for a small community.
They also enjoy the power of controlling
their rent," Haberman said.
Many also find the atmosphere of co-
operatives appealing.
"Everybody here is unusual, and
everybody is accepted right away," said
Nancy. Lindquist, a Washtenaw Commu-
nity College student who lives in the
Lenny Bruce house.
For many students, -co-ops are neces-
sary forfinancial reasons. Rent is decided
by the individual houses, and averages
about $300 a month, including room,
board, and utilities.
"The co-ops began because people
needed an affordable place to live. This
still holds true today," said Charlie Van
Boven, also a Bruce co-op resident, who
is not enrolled in the University. "A lot
of people come because of the money.
After a while, though, they like the phi-
losophy of what a cooperative is all
about," he added.
