The Office of Undergraduate
Admissions released a document
yesterday that confirms the
University has already admitted
more minority students for the
class of 1997 than in any other
class in its history.
To date, the University has
seen a 13-percent increase in ap-
plications for the Fall of '93 from
underrepresented minorities and
increased admissions of minority
students by 11.3 percent over this
time last year.
Last fall, the University saw a
record increase in the number of
minorities, jumping from 21.8 to
24.6 percent of the student body.

Theodore Spencer, interim
dean for the Office of
Undergraduate Admissions, said
this was a "record year for minor-
ity recruitment." Among the
specifics of the increases:
The number of in-state
Black students applying has in-
creased by 92; non-residents in-
creased by 130;
The number of Michigan
Hispanic residents applying has
decreased by 26; the number of
non-resident Hispanics applying
increased by 47;
The number of applications
from Native Americans was un-
changed; and,
The number of minorities
admitted to date has increased by

155: 134 Blacks, one Native
American and 20 Hispanics.
But officials in the admissions
office caution that the final num-
ber of enrolled minority students
will be lower, since not all admit-
ted students decide to attend the
University.
The final date for students to
send the enrollment deposit of
$2(X) is May 1.
But even if there are no in-
creases in the coming weeks, next
fall's entering class will still break
existing records for underrepre-
sented-student enrollment.
Numbers are up significantly
from last year as a result of an ag-
gressive campaign to recruit mi-
nority students, Spencer said.

"We've done quite a bit,"
Spencer said. "We've seen a ban-
ner year for admitted students of
all minorities."
Outgoing Vice Provost for
Minority Affairs Charles Moody,
who oversees the recruitment pro-
cess for minority students, said the
increase is due in part to the "real"
recruitment efforts by the admis-
sions department over the last
several years.
"When recruiters go to Los
Angeles, they really go to Los
Angeles. When they go to New
York, they don't go to West-
chester. And when they go to
Chicago, they don't just go to the
suburbs," Moody said.

Rioters
could face
statement
sanctions
by Bryn Mickle
Daily Staff Reporter
Students who participated in the
recent riots after the basketball
championship games would be wise
to start watching their mailboxes.
The University plans to investigate
anyone who it believes may have
violated the Statement of Student
Rights and Responsibilities.
Lt. James Smiley of the Depart-
ment of Public Safety (DPS) said
one University student was arrested
by DPS for public inebriation and
failure to heed a police order to clear
South University Avenue.
As of today, this is the only con-
firmed student incident that will be
examined by the Office of Student
Affairs as a statement violation.
"The Ann Arbor prosecutor's of-
fice will handle the city's investiga-
tion," Smiley said.
He added that if the 'prosecutor
deems the case worthwhile, DPS
will seek a warrant to bring the stu-
dent up on charges.
"But regardless of (the prosecu-
tor's decision) we will forward a re-
port to the Office of Student Af-
fairs," he said.
It is standard procedure for DPS
to forward all reports that involve
students. Smiley estimated that each
week his department submits an av-
erage of 11 cases that involve crimi-
nal and drug-related activity by stu-
dents to Student Affairs.
Mary Lou Antieau, judicial advi-
sor for the statement, indicated the

Clinton hits Congress

WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Clinton sends Congress his first full-scale
federal budget today, a $1.51 trillion spending
plan guaranteed a serious reception in the
Democratic-led body.
The Clinton fiscal 1994 budget already is
drawing as much attention for what it won't
include as for what it will. Abortion restric-
tions won't be there. Nor will proposals for
health care financing or the president's new
$1.6 billion aid package for Russia.
It also is the first budget in 12 years that
isn't being declared "dead on arrival" by con-
gressional leaders.
The House and the Senate have already
approved budget resolutions endorsing its
broad outlines.
The budget Clinton sends Congress will
detail thousands of specific spending
decisions to help him achieve his goal of
close to $500 billion in deficit reduction over
five years.
Battles loom as congressional appropria-
tions and tax-writing committees get down to
the nitty gritty of specific items.
Republicans are expected to pounce hard
on many of the budget's proposals, as they
have on Clinton's separate $16.3 billion fiscal
1993 stimulus package.
Today's budget will put into details the
many programs and proposals Clinton
outlined in his economic address to a joint
session of Congress on Feb. 17.
Clinton's plan projected that the govern-
ment in fiscal 1994 would take in $1.25
trillion and spend $1.51 trillion. An
administration official on Wednesday said
there would be some changes from these in
the figures released yesterday, but that they
would be slight.
Clinton's budget is expected to reflect his
central campaign vows - cutting defense,

cutting the deficit, and increasing
"investment" spending on the nation's
infrastructure, on education and on
communications and other high-tech
programs.
The defense section calls for $263.4
billion in spending, $10 billion less than last
year and $12 billion short of what former
President Bush had envisioned.
Defense savings in the slimmed-down
budget come from a reduction of 108,000 in
active duty military, a pay freeze and modest
cuts in the Strategic Defense Initiative.
The blueprint terminates no major
Reagan-Bush era weapons systems. Defense
Secretary Les Aspin has called it a "treading
water" budget.
Clinton's proposal for additional
"infrastructure" spending is expected to be
seen the most clearly in the Transportation
Department budget - a 10.9 percent increase
over this year. Total outlays would be $40.3
billion, including $28.4 billion on highways,
bus transit systems, railroads, airports and
maritime development.
The Labor Department budget includes
new spending for job training and assistance.
The president is proposing $4.1 billion over
four years for such programs.
The biggest single item: $2 billion to
retrain dislocated workers who lose their jobs
because of military cuts, plant closings or the
free-trade pact with Mexico.
The administration is also calling for $2.4
billion for jobless benefits for laid-off
workers who have exhausted their state-
administered benefits.
Clinton's $590 billion budget for the
Department of Health and Human Services is
expected to boost spending for children,
women's health and AIDS research, care and
prevention.
