Last year's $2.47 million budget cut from
the state did not make a large impact on Uni-
versity employees' paychecks, according to
the 1991-92 faculty and staff salary record.
Despite the budget cut, most employees
still received a 2 to 7 percent salary increase
this year. Walter Harrison, executive direc-
tor of University Relations, explained that
the yearly raises, 4.5 percent on the average,
are strictly merit-based.
The supplement also shows that 423 Uni-
versity employees will take home more than
$100,000 this year.
Unlike last year, the top ten salary earn-
ers are not all from the medical department.
Michael Tibbetts, a research fellow and ad-
junct lecturer in the biology department, has
the eighth highest salary, S182,100, and Uni-
versity President James Duderstadt is next

University employees' salaries are drawn
from the General Fund, which consists pri-
marily of tuition and money awarded by the
state. The General Fund also provides money
for financial aid, heating and lighting, and
"all the things it takes to run the Univer-
sity," Harrison said.
The $2.47 million cut made by the state
will affect salaries indirectly, by taking one
percent out of each college's budget. This
will lower the lump sum that the executive
officers of each department can use to grant
Raises are not specifically based upon the
rising cost of living, Harrison said. "On the

University President James Duderstadt
was elected chair of the National Science
Board, a policy-making council that over-
sees research projects nationwide.
The new position will take away from
*Duderstadt's time for his responsibilities
in Ann Arbor, but the appointment shows
"evidence of leadership," said Shirley
Clarkson, director of presidential commu-
"He's been prominent as a science
statesman for much of his career," Clark-
son said. Duderstadt is trained as a profes-
sor of nuclear engineering.
Duderstadt already spends about one
day a week in Washington handling other
1 responsibilities, such as introducing leg-
islative initiatives. Clarkson said his new
position will require him to spend even
more time in the capital.
"It will be time consuming, but it's a
terribly important position," Clarkson
said. In addition to other chair responsibil-
ities, Duderstadt will attend board meet-
ings twice a month.
Duderstadt was appointed to the board
in 1985 by President Ronald Reagan and
was reappointed by President George Bush
last year. Appointments require senate ap-
proval, but Duderstadt's recent shift in po-
sitions does not.
Duderstadt will complete the two-year
term of current board chair Mary Good,
who resigned to join the President's Coun-
cil of Advisors on Science and Technology.
The term ends in May 1992, and Clark-
son said she did not know if Duderstadt
would continue in the position after that
"I don't think there's any expectation
one way or the other," she said.
The National Science Foundation is the
principle source of funding for basic re-
search in the United States, Clarkson said.
In the 1990 fiscal year, the University re-
ceived $24.7 million from the foundation.
Earlier this month, the foundation an-
nounced that the University was the
largest public research University in the
country in terms of research expenditures.
Although the Science Foundation pro-
vides a large sum of money to the Univer-
sity, Clarkson said there was no conflict of
interest involved because the board Duder-
stadt will head is separate from the foun-

the policy of allocations is done," Clark-

with $180,000. None of the top ten salaries
belong to women.
Mark Orringer, section head of thoracic
surgery, holds the University's highest
salary again this year with $230,794. Five
others will make more than $200,000 this
year - Lazar Greenfield, chair of the De-
partment of Surgery, $216,913; George
Zuidema, vice provost of Medical Affairs,
$208,330; Tadataka Yamada, chair of the De-

inflation as possible, yet we try to keep tu-

went up 7.1 percent this year.
Any salary increase that goes outside of
the two to seven percent range needs to have a
written justification and be approved by the
executive officers. Harrison said this is very

What began as a peaceful
takeover waged by members of the
Homeless Action Committee
(HAC) at the Downtown Club of-
fice building ended in 10 arrests
HAC had taken over the fourth
floor of the building, located at
110 N. Fourth Ave., and claimed it
for Ann Arbor's homeless when
they were cited for trespassing. Ten
people were arrested.
A similar incident occurred
Monday, when four HAC members
were arrested for trespassing in the
HAC members entered through
a side door of the building at 4 p.m.
Friday. When asked how they
gained entry through a normally
locked door, Kyle Macdonald, a
HAC member replied, "No com-
ment, we might want to use the
Soon after, about 10 HAC mem-
bers spread out their supplies in an
empty office on the deserted fourth
floor, where they were prepared to
break any laws, like destruction of
property," said Ann Arbor Police
Capt. Branson. "We can't arrest
anyone for trespassing until they
are notified that they are trespass-
ing by the building's owners."
The exact ownership of the
building has been in question. The
building was recently repossessed
by First of America Bank. How-
ever, the redemption period of 180
days had not elapsed, and the for-
mer owners still had the option to
buy the building back during this
period. Because of this, the First of
America Bank did not take action.
First of America representa-
tives could not be reached for

Resio voted in last week's MSA

claim the seat.
