the University of Michigan, said she also supports a re

"The subcommittee under Senator Schwarz has been v
ing very hard to making sure that corrections does not c
spend education," said Smith, the ranking Democrat or
Senate Appropriations Committee and a member of the hi
education subcommittee.
After several years of budget surpluses, the state is expe
see a 0.5 percent revenue increase in the General Fund
this year's budget, Chesney said. The projected rev'
increase would amount to only about $43 million, out o
$36 billion budget. "There will not be a great deal of gr
in this budget," Chesney said. But she said, the budget
tinues the governor's commitment to education."
Engler has ordered all state programs, with the ex
tions of K-12 and higher education, the judiciary and
Legislature to slash 0.5 percent off their budgets by Apr
"My guess is that based on the economic projection
cannot expect much more," said Rep. Chris Kolb (D-
Arbor). "Some representatives want to cut taxes more. I t
need to seriously think about making increases in hi
education spending."
Schwarz said the appropriations process will likely en

school football, but in terms of future predictions, I
qn't know that they necessarily mean a lot, but
ey're certainly part of the reason our class is
ranked high," Carr said.
Nine players from the state of Michigan signed
with the Wolverines, including highly-touted running
back Kelly Baraka from Portage Northern High
School. Despite missing two games this season, Bara-
ka scored 28 touchdowns and over 1,610 yards.
"I think it's a great choice," Portage Northern coach
Pete Schermerhorn said. "It's really exciting."
Schermerhorn, who also coached linebacker recruit
Joey Sarantos, described Baraka as "kind of a complete
*dayer. He gained a lot of the yards he gained between
e tackles. He possesses a lot of different weapons."

CODE
Continued from Page IA
There were 105 written complaints submitted
to OSCR in the 2000 calendar year, Elkin said.
"This is not superfluous window-dressing," he
said of the changes. "Everything we want to
emphasize really is on students and student
learning."
University spokeswoman Julie Peterson said
SRAC's use of public sessions to hear the opin-
ions of students on potential revisions set the
"underlying theme" for the Statement.

"Students are the heart of this," Peterson
said. "The Code is a living document. Stu-
dents were a part of these changes and they
can work with MSA and the committee if they
want further changes."
According to a University Board of Regents
bylaw, proposals for changes in the Code must
come through MSA, the Senate Assembly or
University executive officers. SRAC must
review the proposals, consult with the other
groups, and recommend a proposal to the Uni-
versity president, who makes the final deci-
sions.

CELL PHONES

brain cancer development," said
Laura Dawson, a lecturer in the
University Radiation Oncology
Department.
Research on the possible effects
of cell phone use continues to
advance with the growing number
of cell phone users.
Accordinrg to the Cellular
Telecommunications Industry
Association, there are currently
about 107 million cell phone sub-
scribers in the United States.
NCI said the Food and Drug

Administration will provide scien
tific and technical guidance for
studies which evaluate the health
effects of cellular phone use.
Gerald Jenkins, an LSA senior,
stressed the importance of being
conscious that there still might be
possible risks in using a cell phone.
"People should be aware that using
a cell phone is exposure to radiation. I
am being conscious in my use of my
cell phone" Jenkins said.
Jason B. Johnson, an Engineer-
ing senior, said, "The key is to use
in moderation. However the bene-
fits of a cell phone outweigh the
costs."

J the "It's undeniable at this point in the trial that
il. race and racism are fundamental in higher educa-
s we tion," she said.
Ann "College GPA is not a race-neutral merit crite-
hink rion for law school applicants because grades
gher reflect profound racism, discrimination and bias

Baraka was also a state champion in track and an
excellent basketball player while at Portage Northern. p
"He's an outstanding athlete," Schermerhorn said. h
"I think he's going to a great staff." t
With quarterback Drew Henson returning for his
senior year and backup John Navarre entering his c
sophomore year this coming season, the position was
not too high of a priority. 0
But the Wolverines signed sophomore Spencer i
Brinton, a transfer from San Diego State. Brinton is
currently on a two-year Mormon mission to Johannes- o
burg, South Africa, and will return in June. s
Defensive back Markus Curry and defensive line-
man Dave Spytek will find the transition to the team N
to be a bit easier - their brothers, Julius and John, t
respectively, currently play for the team.0
The younger Curry is already at the University tak- f
ing classes and will join the team for spring practice. N

feel great," she said. "For a year I'd been
blaming myself, and there's actually an expla-
nation."
But, she continued, "I feel really bad. It's a real-
ly big problem ... and it's institutionalized." But
James also said she felt empowered by being able
to tell her story as a warning against ending affir-
mative action.
Allen will retake the stand today to face
cross-examination from CIR lawyers. The
intervenors plan to continue their case with
testimony from Columbia history Prof. Eric
Foner and Eugene Garcia, dean of the Univer-
sity of California at Berkeley Graduate School
of Education.
"I think the fact that he gets to work out, he gets to
participate in the winter programs and spring practice,
he'll have a very good foundation by the time we start
raining camp in the fall," Carr said.
When asked to describe the class in one word, Carr
chose "tall," as only one signee is listed under 6-foot.
But one of the biggest assets to the class is the size
of the offensive linemen, with two 300-plus-pounders
n Leo Henige and Matt Lentz.
The four new offensive linemen have the heady task
of replacing one of the best classes at the position in
chool history in Steve Hutchinson and Jeff Backus.
While the football team starts spring practice
March 17 and plays the annual spring game April 14,
he only recruit that will join the current Wolverines
on the field will be Curry. The rest of the class will
irst hit the stage Sept. I against Miami of Ohio in
Michigan Stadium.
