Richard Kennedy, vice presidenr
for government relations for th
University, agrees with Sederbur:
that the proposal is more rationa5
than past requests.
"By using this joint partnership
approach, we are not saying to the
state, 'this is our need and you pro-
vide it all,"' said Kennedy.
"We are saying 'this is how much
we're prepared to put in and you put
ln x-amount too.'"
Kennedy plans to stress to the
Legislature that the University is in
the bottom third of state funding for
higher education in the country.
"In the so-called age of competi-
tion, if we are in competition for
brain power and if we expect to be
able to hold our own in the fifty
states, then we need a system funded
in the top third and not the bottom
third," said Kennedy.
At their monthly meeting in Oc-
tober, the Board of Regents
approved the request for a $13.5
million increase in state appro-
priations, which would boost the
total state funding to $261 million.
-The request will be reviewed by
the state budget department until
January, when Governor Blanchard
ivill make his recommendations for
the state's operating budget. The fi-
nal decision on the proposed budget
will be in July.

U.S., S. Korea to ease trade
WASHINGTON - The Reagan administration is expected to relax
some diplomatic and trade restrictions against North Korea to ease
tensions on the peninsula, according to U.S. officials.
Although modest, the moves are believed to be the most extensive the

Citizens prepare for pranks
DETROIT - About 20,000 citizen volunteers, twice the number
deployed in the past few years, joined city employees and officials yester-
day in patrolling Detroit streets to snuff out what has become an esca-
lating battle against annual Devil's Night arson.
A 6 p.m.-6 a.m. curfew for children 18 and under took effect Sat-
urday night and would continue through tomorrow night. Police picked
up 278 youngsters Saturday night on curfew violation charges, Buck said.
Last year, police arrested 496 youths who defied a similar curfew to
wander the streets. They were held at precinct stations until their parents
or guardian, police Lt. Philip Foster said.
The Detroit Fire Department handles between 65 and 70 fires on an
average Saturday night, said Robert berg, a spokesman for Mayor
Negative ads appear to work
WASHINGTON - No one admits to liking them or even being influ-
enced by them, but they work. That's why.candidates from the presidency
down are running negative campaigns.
"It's sort of like television. Everyone deplores it yet people watch it,"
says Andrew Kohut, president of the Gallup polling organization. "They
don't like negative campaigning. But they have to take their cues about
these candidates from what's being offered."
Negative campaigns are nothing new, but the television "attack ad," a
media tool that reinforces and magnifies a candidate's campaign rhetoric,
is relatively new.
These ads sometimes allow the campaigner to be a soft-spoken
candidate while impersonal narrators trash his rival in 30-second spots on
the TV screen.
Cars, warming trend linked
DETROIT - Automakers here are keeping a close watch on the so-
called greenhouse effect, saying if the earth's temperature continues to
rise, they may be forced to redesign their vehicles.
Automakers say they fear a national or global policy could be enacted
to slow the Earth's'warming trend, and that policy could require lighter,
smaller and slower cars powered by cleaner-burning engines that pollute
"Suppose Congress arbitrarily required 40 miles per gallon? You'd put
a lot of us out of business," said Al Slechter, federal government affairs
director for Chrysler Corp.
Carbon dioxide, found in automobile exhaust, is responsible for about
49 percent of the global warming, according to the Environmental Pro-
Honest student gives up
million-dollar bank bonus
KANSAS CITY, Mo. - A computer glitch gave a 21-year-old student
a rare chance to get rich quick, but a spell of honesty stopped the man
from withdrawing thousands of dollars from an instant cash machine.
Although Neil Martin had not applied for money machine priviledges,
two new cards arrived in the mail last week. He tried one - inappropri-
ately named Safecard - and was amazed when the screen told him
$999,999.99 was in his account.
The second card registered another $999,999.99 available for with-
The DeVry Institute of Technology student considered the situation
overnight, and returned to a machine the next morning, where he with-
drew $10 from each account. The balances did not change.
"Now don't make me out to be a criminal," Martin said. "I just think
it's so hilarious. It's such a blunder I can't believe it happened. I never
applied for these cards."
Apparently Martin wasn't the only Home Savings Association cus-
tomer who became an instant millionaire last week, said Jerry Gentry, a
regional vice president of the savings and loan.
"It's just a little fluke," Gentry said, attributing the glitches to a new
computer system that was being installed last week.
