'U' study reports
less teen drug use
by Joanna Broder
Daily Health Issues Reporter
Research scientists at the Uni-
versity's Institute for Social Re-
search (ISR) in a new study on
young adult drug use found that
fewer high school seniors and col-
lege students were using drugs such
as marijuana and cocaine in 1989
than in 1979.
The study, "Monitoring the Fu-
ture," reports that about 40% of high
school seniors actively used some
type of illicit drug in 1979, and that
this number dropped to under 20% in
". ..the likelihood of a young
person in high school or college to-
day actively using illicit drugs is
only about half of what it was a
decade ago," principal researcher
Lloyd Johnston said.
Johnston, with fellow ISR re-
searchers Patrick O'Malley and Jerald
Bachman, found while 37 percent of
high school seniors surveyed in
1979 had smoked marijuana within
30 days of the survey, only 17 per-
cent had used the drug in 1989.
The number of college students
who use marijuana dropped from 34
percent in 1979 to 16 percent in
The number of cocaine users has
also dropped among both college arid;
high school populations, as has the
number of amphetamine userse
"The most troublesome findingis
that among high school seniors th&
smoking rate has not declined
through most of the eighties," John-
"The downturns that we have}
seen are a result of reduced demaid
for drugs and not reduced supply. ;
Demand has declined because peer
norms have been shifting," Johnston
said in a phone conversation yester-;t
day, after reporting the study resulis
in a national news conference in
Washington earlier that afternoon.
"Fewer peers accept drugs (and), i
more people recognize hazards of us.
ing drugs," he said.
Each year since 1975, the r .
searchers survey approximately-
17,000 seniors from 135 high
schools nationwide. They also resur-&
vey a smaller sample of the higi
school graduates between the ages of
19 and 28. The annual sample size
of college students is about 1,200.,

4U' pleased with state
education budget for '91
toy Christine Kloostra
Daily Government Reporter
y University officials are pleased
with Governor James Blanchard's
proposed higher education budget
fer fiscal year 199.1 despite the fact
tlat it falls short of the University's
Blanchard proposed a 4.7 percent
hike, a $265.3 million appropriation,
f r the University. The recommenda-
tion falls more than three percent be-
16w the University's request for an
eight percent increase.
University President James Dud-
- erstadt, however, said the proposal is
"good news for higher education."
4 "We commend the Governor for
his courageous and visionary steps
to restore strong public support for
higher education in the face of a dif-
ficult budget year," Duderstadt said.
Prior to the release of Blan-
chard's recommendations last week,
slme lawmakers were pessimistic
suibstantial increases would occur in
any area of the budget.
"The most optimistic increase for
any budget, including higher educa-
ti'on, is in low single-digit percentage
increases," said state representative
James Kosteva (D-Canton), chair of
the House Colleges and Universities
Blanchard, however, chose to
propose increased funding for
education on all levels because it is
the "single best investment we can
make," said state budget director
Although he is pleased with
Blanchard's proposal, University
Provost and Vice President for Aca-
demic Affairs Charles Vest said it
will be necessary to tighten the Uni-
versity's budget despite the increase.
"It will be a quite constrained
budgetary year for the University.
The first thing is to meet all obliga-
tions for fixed costs," Vest said.
Officials from the schools within
the University will be holding bud-
get conferences this month to priori-
tize costs other than those that are
State lawmakers will begin hold-
ing hearings over the next few
months to consider the Governor's
recommendations and requests from

Forget about bows and arrows.
Modern-day Cupid carries a bow and
"Cupids" Sonya Nagel and Ni-
cole Willeumier, both LSA first-year
students, are performing violin sere-
nades for students to send to the
sweetheart (or sweethearts) of their
choice throughout this week.
Nagel and Willeumier advertised
their service across campus.
LSA junior Rebecca Guldi saw
the ad in the bathroom of the Mod-
ern Languages Building and decided
to hire Nagel and Willeumier to ser-
enade her boyfriend tonight at their
Valentine's Day dinner. "I thought
about candy and flowers, but that
was too common. Then, there I was,
sitting on the can, and I saw the
sign. The light clicked, and I said...
That's it," Guldi said.
A post doctoral research fellow in
behavorial medicine, who wishes to
remain anonymous to save the sur-
prise, saw the ad in the lunchroom
where she works and called the sere-
naders to play for her fiance. "I
thought the serenade would send our
wedding off in a good way. Kind of
like a good omen."
Eun Jung Park, red-faced and
smiling Monday after receiving het
serenade, said "I think it's great and
that's all I can think of to say. I'nV'
The serenaders were pleased with
their first performance. "It wasat
smash. We had a great audienc
They even sang along," Willeumier
When asked Monday if she was,
nervous before their first perfor--4
mance, Willeumier replied, "This is°
nothing. Tomorrow we have to play
for a frat house of 45 guys." A
The serenaders charge $7 for Hill
residence hall visits, $8 for central'
campus residence halls and $10 fog
off-campus locations includin
Both serenaders play the violin as
a hobby. Nagel has been playing for'
10 years and Willeumier for 15. The
Valentine's Day idea stemmed from
a similar project Nagel was a part bf
in her high school. "We had people
come to the front of the room, stag
there, and turn red," Nagel said.
The serenades may cause a f,
faces to turn red, but what could bea
more appropriate color for faces a'
