President Reagan's proposed budget
for 1990 would deal Michigan's
finances a $200 million blow
through revenue reductions and
increased responsibility for
programs, state Budget Director
Shelby Solomon said yesterday.
Reagan in his final budget set
federal spending at $1.15 trillion but
included in his proposal a host of
cutbacks that Solomon said would
have great impact on Michigan.
Federal funding for criminal
* justice assistance, student financial
aid, school nutrition programs and
services to seniors would all be
reduced should Congress accept the
Reagan spending plan, Solomon

JERUSALEM (AP) - Yesterday
for the first time Prime Minister
Yitzhak Shamir opened the way for a
United Nations role in the Middle
East peace process, but he again re-
jected the PLO as a negotiating
In the occupied territories, an al-
leged Palestinian collaborator was
killed, reportedly by other Arabs, and
10 Palestinians were reported
wounded in clashes with Israeli
Shamir told representatives of the
European Parliament that Israel
would accept U.N. involvement in
Middle East peace negotiations. The
Parliament has been pressing Israel
to negotiate with the PLO.
Shamir said any peace talks must
be held directly with Arab parties to
the conflict and ruled out the Pales-
tine Liberation Organization's sit-
ting at the bargaining table.
"Such negotiations can be
launched under the auspices ofathe
great powers (the United States and

the Soviet Union) or the United Na-
tions, providing they refrain from
any involvement in the substance of
the talks," Shamir said.
Shamir has contended until now
that a U.N.- sponsored forum would
be biased against Israel and force'
concessions from the Jewish state.
The Arab states want an interna
tional conference attended by the five
permanent Security Council mem
bers - the United States, the Soviet
Union, China, Britain and France~-
who would play an active role in

Lord Plumb said the Europeanr
Community supported an interna,

He said European Community
members also believe the conflict
could not be resolved unless Israel
withdrew from the occupied territo-
ries and recognized the Palestinian
right to self-determination.

important to come out with the facts
and truth whether he's guilty or not."
Some assembly members felt the
report was politically motivated, and
felt it violated the constitution
because the assembly had not
authorized it.
Phillips defended the legality of
Belcher's report, likening it to the
equivalent of a personal letter
between Belcher and himself. "I
don't agree with the alot of things in
the report," he said, but later added,
"I think Zack broke the rules."
Law Rep. Kevin McClanahan
was elected to chair the committee.
McClanahan said he wants "to make
sure that an MSA rep. has a fair and
impartial investigation." Four other
assembly members were chosen

Kittrie said Phillips was choosing
to emphasize "petty politics over
issues. He is criticizing me for
working too hard."
Calling Phillips' tactics
McCarthy-like, Kittrie said "this is
nothing less than a witch hunt." He
said the official investigative
committee was "better than having
political henchmen investigating
me." The report, he added, "treads a
fine line between being an
investigation and being nothing at
Many assembly members
questioned whether or not the report
itself constiuted an unauthorized
investigation by Phillips.

LSA Reps. Heidi Hayes and Matt
Manisfield attempted to introduce a
resolution to vote on creating a
committee to investigate Phillips'
conduct. They cited the Kittrie report
as being possibly biased and
slandering Kittrie "for possible
reasons that may not be conducive to
the intention that justice be done."
The assembly, however, defeated
the motion to discuss the resolution.
Phillips dismissed the resolution as
"just politics."
McClanahan also was critical,
saying to Phillips, "If you're going
to be political at least be a little more
under-handed about it because this is
just blatant."

WAND works for.
end to arms race

Bank settles affirmative action case

The money required to provide
adequate food, water, education,
health and housing for everyone in
the world has been estimated at $17
billion a year - about as much as
the world spends on arms every two
weeks, according the campus
chapter of Women's Action for
Nuclear Disarmament.
WAND is concerned about these
and other issues. Since the group
formed in fall 1987, it has been the
only organization on campus to ac-
tively educate and lobby for the end
of the arms race.
"The average woman doesn't feel
qualified to speak on the issue of
nuclear arms," said organizer Julie
Berkley, an LSA senior. "So we
have a dual purpose - to educate
ourselves while educating other stu-
dents on campus."
Campus WAND, part of a na-
tional group that unites women and
men in an effort to reverse the arms
race, spent last term evaluating the
goals of the group and how it should
reach out to the campus.
In an attempt to inform the cam-
pus community of the dangers

surrounding the arms race and hove
the University is involved in arm*
research, WAND members are cur-
rently planning educational events
and demonstrations.
The first event of this term will bi
a demonstration on Jan. 20, where
WAND members across the country:i
will ask President-elect George Bush,
to reverse the current escalation of
the arms race.
The group plans to march to the
Federal Building on East Liberty t(J
hear speakers and then march to the
Ann Arbor News building, where the
group will protest what WAND sees
as the the unfair treatment its posi-
tion has received in the media.
As another project, the grou
plans to distribute a pledge for all
graduating students to sign. This
pledge would ask students to "use
their talents for humane and
ecological reasons" and "consider all
social and environmental conse-
quences of their actions" when they
Tobi Hanna-Davis, Director of
Washtenaw WAND said, "You
don't feel powerless when you
belong to WAND."

WASHINGTON (AP) - One of the nation's
largest banks agreed yesterday to pay a record $14
million in back pay to women and minorities it
employed from 1973 to 1988, but refused to
concede that it had discriminated.
Harris Trust and Savings Bank of Chicago,
40th among the nation's banks in assets last
year, said it was agreeing to settle charges
originally filed by the Labor Department in 1977

to avoid "more legal and statistical wrangling." A
Chicago group that had supported the
government's complaint said up to 5,000 people
could share in the award.
Under the agreement, Harris Trust must revise
its affirmative action program for women and
minorities seeking promotions to professional
and managerial posts, and tell the department
periodically over the next three years how well it

is complying with the agreement and anti-
discrimination laws.
The agreement did not set any quotas or goals
The settlement brings to a close a 1977 case
that charged Harris Trust with discrimination by
promoting white men at a significantly higher
rate than women and minorities with comparable
skills and was paying white men more for
comparable work.

"Diversity Day is to enlighten peo-
ple so they can see that to have a
multicultural University is one of
Dr. King's challenges."
Despite the varying opinions on
the name given to King's Day ev-

erybody agrees on the fact that the
programs scheduled for the day are
related to King's struggle and hope
that the sentiment of the day contin-

,s throughout the year.
"I hope everyday would be a di-

King's birthday," said Moody.

make Blacks or make women feel

However, Jackman said, "I've
talked to (Farley) myself on issues
concerning sexism and racism, and
I've always found him to be quite

sensitive about these issues."
United Coalition Against Racism
members Tracye Matthews and
Kimberly Smith criticized Jackman
in a letter to the Daily. "Mary Jack-
man's testimony regarding her per-
sonal relationship with Farley is
quite irrelevant to the issue at hand."
Toni Caldwell, co-chair of Soci-
ologists of Color, declined to com-
ment, but said her group would re-
lease a statement about Farley within
a few days.
