But it hasn't dropped yet. Yester-
day at their monthly meeting the
University's Board of Regents ex-
tended their practice of billing
graduate student assistants for the
taxes - rather than withholding
them from paychecks - through the
fall term. And for now, students who

do not pay the taxes won't receive
hold credits or other penalties.
THIS PRACTICE is the Uni-
versity's temporary solution as it
waits for Congress to decide whether
to re-enact the student tax exemp-
tions that expired last winter. But
the waiting is almost over.
If the exemptions are not rein-
stated before Congress adjourns in
October, said University Interim
Provost Robert Holbrook, the Uni-
versity will work with the GEO to
find an internal solution to the tax

problem. "We are looking with an
eye to modify the contractual rela-
tionship," Holbrook said. The 1750-
member union will begin bargaining
on a new contract this winter.
Indeed, members of both the GEOC
and University administration seem
doubtful Congress will take action
on the issue. "Realism suggests...
people are simply unwilling to open
up (the Tax Code) to amendments
now," Holbrook said, although Uni-
versity Vice President for Govern-
ment Relations Richard Kennedy

"In the last two years the Univer-
sity has seen what organized student
movements can do," Levy said. "And
the administration is preparing its
army and training it well."
"To make major change, we must
become more militant and more
united in our struggle for an anti-
racist and anti-sexist institution,"
she said. "Workers have the strength
and the power to shut this university
down."

UNIVERSITY PRESIDENT
James Duderstadt said security offi-
cers were not deputized to repress
campus protest but to help stop ris-
ing incidents of campus crime.
"The action taken has nothing to
do with protest," he said. "Rather,
the issue is crime on the Diag at 2
a.m. You can't use two deputized
officers to control hundreds of
protesters."
"Bullshit!" said Michigan Student
Assembly President Michael
Phillips, an LSA senior. "Our
statistics don't show it. There is
nothing on our campus that calls for

deputization. The Ann Arbor Police
Department patrols the campus
enough to keep the campus crime on
an equal level of all campuses."
Duderstadt said that, to his
knowledge, "(We're) the only uni-
versity in the country where there is
not deputization or campus police."
REGENT DEANE BAKER
(R-Ann Arbor) instigated the policy
changes at the May regents' meeting
when he asked former Interim Uni-
versity President Robben Fleming to
propose a plan "to assure the peace-
ful functioning of University schol-
arly, and other, activities."

able compensation," Holbrook sa
Similarly, granting residency to nc
residents isalsoconsidered comp

Abortion ads may mislead
LANSING - Commercials by the committe To End Tax-Funded
Abortions are deliberately misleading and conceal the real agenda of anti-
M. abortion crusaders, the League of Women Voters of Michigan complained
yesterday.
s. The 3,000-member organization, which never endorses candidates but
some-times takes sides in referendum compaigns, takes issuewith the
pro-Proposal A compaign primarily because of what the television
commercials say and what the campaign isn't saying.
The Committe To End Tax-Funded Abortions is trying to focus voter
atten-tion on the issue of money rather than the real issue of abortion.
An abortion typically costs the government little more than $300
compared to about $7,070 on a hospital delivery and the first two years of
care for each baby born to a welfare mother.
Strike jeopardizes MSU
football game broadcast
EAST LANSING - Striking clerical and technical workers at
Michigan State University got support yesterday from television network
employees covering the MSU-Notre Dame football game.
The National Association of Broadcast Engineers and Technicians"
(NABET) sent a telegram to the university expressing hope for a
settlement before Saturday's matchup, scheduled to be televised nationally-
by ABC.
"I want to make you aware that ABC's NABET members have the
right to honor the picket lines of the striking clerical-technical employees
of Michigan State," said NABET president James Nolan in a telegram'
received by the strikers yesterday.1,
"Hopefully, the existing dispute between the parties will be resolved
by this weekend and will make it unnecessary for the NABET members
to exercise their free choice of respecting the picket lines at Michigan
State," Nolan said.
