He added, "This year we just
have to sustain the same level of
support as last year ... It's going to
be a struggle to keep our funding at
the same level."
Truscott said that in light of the
current state of economic duress,
keeping the education budget at the
same level as this year is fair.
"We feel that the universities
have been treated very well, and
most university presidents are appre-
ciative of what we try to do," he
Whitaker said he believed the
state would provide additional funds
if money were available. In the
meantime, Whitaker said University
officials are currently considering
strategies for managing with a

tions at the moment," he said.
"We're talking to (University offi-
cials) school by school to see what

but so we can understand what their
Engler's office has recommended
a July 1 deadline for the state
legislature to pass the budget.
Truscott said that state adminis-
trators are hoping for quick action.
"The budget as a whole that we in-
troduced we feel is a good, solid
budget. It's one that the legislature
shouldn't have much trouble pass-
ing," Truscott said. "There's really
no excuse for this to be dragged out
because all the work is before them."
However, not everyone agrees
with Truscott's assurance of a
speedy budget approval. In particu-
lar, Democrats claim that they are
willing to fight for increased funds
"There's a ton of work that has to
be done. I'm a little concerned about
the state's commitment to higher ed-
ucation," said Rep. Kirk Profit (D-
Ypsilanti). "As the state withdraws
its commitment at U of M, tuition
Profit has repeatedly said he feels
the state is reneging on its obligation
to public universities by not provid-
ing adequate funds for projects such
as building maintenance.
Mary Dettloff, spokesperson for
Speaker of the House Lewis Dodak
(D-Montrose), said the Engler ad-
ministration has adversely affected
the quality of education in the state,
citing specifically that high costs are
beginning to preclude access to
persons desiring higher education.
"We're very concerned that edu-
cation be accessible to everyone who
wants a college education," she said.
"The Engler administration has not
really done anything in reference to
that ... I think it was unrealistic to
keep all the universities' budgets at
these levels because the cost of
doing business is going up."
Dettloff added that tuition would
increase at double-digit rates if more
money is not provided. "Without
increases in the budget, you're look-
ing for 10 to 15 percent tuition hikes,
and that's not acceptable to the
Democrats," she said.
Sen. John Schwarz (R-Battle
Creek) asserted that the state simply
does not have additional revenues to
provide educational institutions with
"There's no extra money.
Period," Schwarz said. "It may be
difficult to hold it at this level."
Schwarz added that while uni-
versities may be forced to make cut-
backs, daily operations would still
continue. "Some universities will
have to make cuts, and plans for
those contingencies have been made.
The university will be there and
students will be there."
Whitaker admitted that the
University has little choice but to
adjust tuition to make up for a
shortfall in state appropriations.
Money from the state budget consti-
tutes 45 percent of the University's
General Fund, with the rest accrued
from tuition and other fees.

Harkin and former California Gov.
The first-term senator was an
uneven campaigner who alternately
impressed and bored audiences. He
seemed to move weekly from one
theme to another - trade, health,
shaking up government, patriotism,
electability. He was blunt about his
prospects and his plans, to the point
of saying he would raise taxes to
pay for health-care reforms and

Kerrey supporters have consis-
tently identified health care as the
issue most important to them in a
variety of polls. Kerrey had pro-
posed a comprehensive national
health care system, and Sen. Tom
Harkin (D-Iowa) endorses a similar
Semetko said that Kerrey's sup-
port is likely to go to Harkin ini-
tially, "if anywhere," but after that
it is unclear.
But with Harkin's campaign in
trouble, and speculation rising that
he too might drop out, the question
remains as to what candidate will
get the votes that Kerrey would
have had. Among the candidates
likely to continue through to the
Democrats' New York convention
this July, only Jerry Brown pro-
poses as radical a plan as Kerrey.
But, as Semetko points out,
Brown is not identified strongly
with health care.
"When (Brown) did well in
Colorado, it was mostly because of
the environmental issue," she said.
"Voters may not know his plans for
"I don't think it'll go to Jerry
Brown. It'll go to whoever else is
left in the race," she added.
Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton and
former Massachusetts Sen. Paul
Tsongas both support economic
platforms that are distinctly more
conservative than Kerrey's, particu-
larly on health care. The two favor
a "play-or-pay" system that relies
on employers to "play," by provid-
ing health care on their own, or pay
into a fund for government-pro-
If nothing else, however,
Kerrey's withdrawal has pointed
out the importance of winning early
"Here we are, aweek before
Super Tuesday, with Bob Kerrey
dropping out of the race because of
a lack of money and a lack of abil-
ity to win primaries and caucuses,"
Candidates who do not seem vi-
able after the early primaries do not
last long in these races. The cam-
paigns are driven by contributions,
and the harsh reality of our system
is that losers just don't get them.
The Kerrey withdrawal is ex-
pected to have little effect on the
campaign. But with the winnowing
process begun, the election picture
is likely to become clearer in the

Doreen Poupard, assistant super-
intendent for curriculum and in-
struction for Ann Arbor public
schools, said passing out condoms
goes against the message public high
schools tell students.
"We do not distribute condoms
because it is contradictory to our
curriculum, which teaches students
abstinence with education," Poupard
said. "It is a philosophical position,
not a problematical one."
Poupard also said Maurer could
not distribute the condoms in part
because of school safety rules. "Can
you imagine what would happen if
we let anyone distribute whatever
they wanted?" she asked.
But ACT UP members said it is
vital that teenagers receive
comprehensive AIDS education.
"The education in high school is
minimal, and that is really scary,"
Bejian said. "Fifteen- to 24-year-
olds is the age group where AIDS is
spreading the fastest.
"We don't just hand out con-
doms. There is a card attached with
information and phone numbers for
anonymous AIDS testing," Bejian

Regent Philip Power (D-Ann
Arbor) concurred, "I think it's a le-
gitimate concern and I agree with it,
but state law requires us to hold pub-
lic comments in public places, which
are large and intimidating."
Power added, however, that he is
personally always willing to speak to

Harrison said, "One way to im-
prove communication is for students
to learn to use the administration to
their advantage. It they have issues
they wish to bring to the regents,
they need to do so through the vice
president for Student Affairs."
Hartford said the exclusion of,
students in decision-making pro-
cesses disturbs her, but she does not
feel that it is a deliberate decision on
the part of the board.
She added that she has already
begun trying to improve the
