Researchers

control funds

BY NOELLE SHADWICK
The University's Institute of So-
cial Research has taken a year to de-
cide what color its new carpeting
should be, and as of yesterday, no
decision had yet been made.
Decisions like choosing the color
of a carpet can take a long time at
the ISR because unlike other Uni-
versity institutions, researchers have
more control over how the institute
spends its money.
Any type of decision takes a long
time, said James Wessel, assistant
director of the ISR.
The ISR differs from most other
research institutions, which rely on
external funding for support. While
other researchers give control of their

grant money to a central administra-
tor, ISR researchers maintain their
own finances.
This means researchers hire their
own support staff, pay their own
salaries, and have a say in the way

goes to the University. The ISR,
however, keeps it.
The three main centers of the
ISR: the Center for Political Stud-
ies, the Center for the Study of
Group Dynamics, and the Survey

University] we can save our money for the next year.'

money that researchers receive from The system is "probably very
foundations to cover indirect costs much like the British common-
such as those for light and heat - wealth," said Wessel, who compared

the centers to states with many state
rights.
It's a loose-knit system, because
while most institutions work from
the administration down, the ISR
works from the faculty up, Wessel
said.
If administrators put too many
restrictions on the researchers, they
can take their grants and leave, he
said.
However, because the institute is
in charge of its own money, it is
more frugal with its expenditures,
Wessel said.
"We've been more like a business
because, [unlike the University] we
can save our money for the next
year," he said.
Besides receiving grant money,
the ISR also receives some
subsidizing from the University and
some money from survey services
they provide.
Tension
remains
high in
USSR
YEREVAN, U.S.S.R. (AP) -
Authorities eased a curfew here yes-
terday, but tensions remain high in
this republic that was the site of
mass demonstrations before being
hit by a devastating earthquake in
December.
The military commander in Yere-
van, in an announcement published
in the daily newspaper Kommunist,
said the midnight-to-6 a.m. curfew
would be reduced further to 1 a.m. to
5 a.m.
On Lenin Square, there were no
tanks, although six armored person-
nel carriers and a handful of troops
were deployed at main government
buildings.

"We had someone else with
whom she shared many views...it did
not make sense to have two people
with the same views," Costello said,
adding she represents a "liberal and
socially committed" portion of cam-
pus.
The 10-15 minute panel segment
will address issues such as "racism,
alcohol abuse, national politics,
AIDS and sex, sports and proposi-
tion 42, money, and women's is-
sues," said CBS News Senior Pro-
ducer Al Berman.
The show - which will air be-
tween 7 and 9 a.m. - will also in-
clude live interviews with James
Duderstadt, President; Bo Schem-
bechler, athletic director and head
football coach; University alumni
Roger Smith, president at GM and
Tom Hayden, California state legis-
lator.
Four male students will also be
interviewed live in their East Quad
dorm room, said Al Berman, Senior
Producer.
"They are students who are repre-
sentative of other University of
Michigan students and other college
students...they tend to be outgoing,
articulate, talented, and comfortable

with the situation," said Costello.
Other segments will include a
weather forecast by Mark McEwen
in front of the Bell Tower and a per-
formance by the Michigan Marching
band for basketball games.
Most of the live broadcast will be
from the Lawyers Club, according to
Katie St. Vincent, a clerk at the Law
Quad. She said the room looks out
onto the Law quad, but that "they're
closing off the area." Berman said
the show will not be open to a live
audience.

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and staff reports
Republicans form task forces
LANSING, Mich. - House Republicans have formed seven task
forces to address issues such as taxpayer rights, environmental cleanup,
and affordable health care for the uninsured, lawmakers said yesterday.
House Minority Leader Paul Hillegonds (R-Holland) said the panels
formed by the House Republican Committee are an effort to improve the
quality of life for Michigan residents while making government more ef-
ficient.
The task forces will also address accountability in state government,
disadvantaged children, educational options, and drunken driving.
Hillegonds said the task forces are a recognition that Republicans have
been too narrowly focused in the past and have become more interested in
good schools, safe streets, and a cleaner environment.
"For Republicans, I think there really has been a shift from just
focusing on business-cost issues - which are still important - to a
broader view of the quality of life in Michigan," he said. "I think it is a
recognition that we were too narrowly focused and that the public itself
has a much broader perspective."
Hillegonds said government should be held more accountable by mak-
ing better use of auditor general reports and the appropriations process.
"We have put so much authority and responsibility with a couple of
committees of the Legislature that we can't possibly do the necessary
oversight to see that money is being spent wisely or that it's being spent
as was intended," he said.
North to have neutral jury
WASHINGTON- Oliver North
was an outlaw to some Americans
and a hero to others, but those
people with strong opinions won't
qualify to sit on the jury. The court
is looking for jurors who barely
heard of him.
A jury of North's fellow citizens
can be found and can render justice,
many legal experts say, even
without those who saw North
confessing on television that he
deceived lawmakers about selling
arms to Iran.
"Jurors are asked to bring a
certain amount of common sense
into the jury room and try to
determine whether a particular story
makes sense and look witnesses in
the eye to tell who is telling the
truth," said Phillip Lacovara, a
N o rt h former prosecutor in another
... awaits jury notorious case, Watergate.
Cental American aide chosen
WASHINGTON - President Bush is expected to name Democrat
Bernard Aronson as his top state department aide for Latin America in a
bid for a bipartisan approach toward Central America policy, administra-
tion officials said yesterday.
The selection of Aronson, a one-time assistant to former Vice Presi-
dent Walter Mondale, came as a surprise because his name had not been
on any of the long lists circulating on prospective successors to former
Assistant Secretary of State Elliott Abrams.
Aronson, 42, is best known for the help he gave to President Reagan
in building congressional support for the Nicaraguan Contras in 1986, the
last year Congress approved military aid for the rebels.
Aronson, from 1977 to 1981, was a vice presidential speechwriter and
deputy assistant to President Carter, and currently is on a Council on
Foreign Relations study group on Central America. The officials who
confirmed his appointment spoke on the condition of anonymity.
EXTRAS$
Jazzy dad was truly a woman
SPOKANE, Wash. - A jazz performer whose high notes entertained
nightclub-goers in Western states for decades was a woman, but her fans
and adopted sons never knew until her recent death, a funeral director said
Tuesday.
Donald Ball, director of Ball & Dodd Funeral Home, confirmed that
Billy Tipton, who lived as a man before dying at age 74, was a woman.
Ball said he privately informed Jon Clark, one of Tipton's three
adopted sons, that his "father" was really female so Clark would not have

to learn it from the death certificates.
"I was just trying to break it to him gently," Ball said.
"I'm just lost," Clark told a local newspaper. He said he learned the
truth last Wednesday, four days after Tipton died of a bleeding ulcer.
"He'll always be dad," Clark said. "But I think that he should have left
something behind for us, something that would have explained the truth."

$50,000 a day."
"That turns into a lot of money
in a hurry," the spokesperson said.
Gannet Co., Inc., owner of the
News, declined comment from its
Arlington headquarters.
An appeals court panel, splitting
2-to-1, Friday rejected opponents'
arguments that then-Attorney Gen-
eral Edwin Meese had gone beyond
the intent of the law in approving
the joint operating agreement. The
law allows an exemption from fed-
eral antitrust laws when one news-
paper is in danger of financial fail-
ure.
The newspapers applied for the
exemption in 1986. Meese approved
it last August, but a U.S. district
court halted the merger after oppo-
nents sued to block-the agreement.
The lower court said the agree-
ment was proper, and said they will
file a motion today for the entire ap-
peals court to rehear the case.
They argued that the appeals
panel had added to the power of an
executive agency to decide the
meaning of ambiguous laws.
