'U' hit with drop in state support

Forty years ago this week
Republican Gov. William
Milliken warned University
President Robben Fleming
to expect at least a 4-percent
decrease in state funding for the
1975-1976 academic year.
Milliken also instructed
Fleming that "tuition increases
and enrollment decreases are not
viable alternatives" to compensate
for the lower funding. ,
However, Fleming said he
wouldn't rule out a tuition increase
and saw no other path toward
increasing University revenue.
"Our financial future is a
very serious problem and I don't
know the answer to it," he told

the University community in his
annual State of the University
speech earlier that week. "This is
the most dismal financial picture
we've faced inthe lastdecade."
Members ofthe Senate Advisory
Committee on University Affairs
asked University administrators
to form a committee to review
The request followed a five-year
study on funds distribution at the
University conducted by a SACUA
subcommittee, which led to the
sentiment among some faculty
are routinelyoverlooked.

First U.S. Ebola case leads
to travel ban consideration


Health officials
advise maintaining
open borders
(AP) - Top government health
officials said Sunday that they
are opposed to placing a ban on
travelers from Ebola-infected
countries, warning that shutting
down borders could impede
efforts by aid workers to stop the
spread of the deadly virus.
The idea of a ban gained cur-
rency this past week after the na-
tion's first case was diagnosed in
Dallas. Proponents have argued
that it would help ensure public
Anthony'Fauci, director of the
National Institute of Allergy and
Infectious Diseases, part of the
National Institutes of Health,
said a travel embargo on West
African countries that are strug-
gling with Ebola would make it
much harder for them to control
the virus.
"You isolate them, you can
cause unrest in the country," Fau-
ci told "Fox News Sunday." "It's
conceivable that governments
could fall if you just isolate them
British Airways and some oth-
er airlines have suspended flights
from those countries, and overall
traffic to and from the affected
areas has dropped.
Sen. Mark Kirk, an Illinois
Republican, has said the federal

government should gradually
halt flights to the region to pro-
tect Americans. Rep. Tim Mur-
phy plans to conduct hearings
on the policy this coming week.
He leads the House Energy and
Commerce Subcommittee on
Oversight and Investigations.
Asking travelers to report their
own activities at airports "has
been a demonstrated failure, and
it is nearly impossible to retrace
steps to try and track down ev-
eryone who has been in contact
with a carrier taking multiple
international flights across the
globe," Murphy, a ,Pennsylvania
Republican, said Friday.
Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal,
a physician, said the U.S. should
halt flights from Ebola-stricken
"The Obama administration
keeps saying they won't shut
down flights. They instead say
we should listen to 'the experts,"'
Jindal said Friday. 4In fact, they
said it would be counterproduc-
tive to stop these flights. That
statement defies logic.'
Tom Frieden, director of the
federal Centers for Disease Con-
trol and Prevention, said on ABC's
"This Week" that the administra-
tion was open to practical sugges-
tions that won't backfire.
"We don't want to do some-
thing that inadvertently increas-
es our risk by making it harder
to stop the outbreak there, be-
cause if it spreads more widely
throughout different countries in
Africa, that will be even more of

a risk to us," said Frieden, whose
agency has cautioned against
non-essential travel to Liberia,
Sierra Leone and Guinea.
Frieden has also noted that a
ban on incoming flights could af-
fect Americans trying to return
home from those countries.
"There are many other people
who have the right to enter into
this country," he said during a
Saturday briefing. "And we're not
going to be able to get to zero risk
no matter what we do unless and
until- we control the outbreak in
West Africa."
An airline passenger traveling
from Liberia to Dallas brought
Ebola into the U.S. last month. He
is hospitalized in isolation, and
public-health officials are moni-
toring a few dozen people who
may have been exposed to the
U.S. officials have empha-
sized that the United States has
a modern medical system that is
far better equipped to contain an
outbreak than the African coun-
tries where Ebola is currently
spreading. ,
Airline passengers have their
temperatures taken as they board
planes in the outbreak zone, al-
though those infected with Ebola
can go up to 21 days before they
exhibit symptoms. Passengers
are also asked about contact with
infected people, but that process
would not be useful if a passenger
lies or simply does not realize the
medical condition of people they
have encountered.

U.S. Ebola patient
in worse condition
After hospital officials on
Saturday said the condition of
the lone Ebola patient diag-
nosed in the U.S. has worsened,
the woman he came to Texas to
visit said she is praying for his
Louise Troh said thatshe was
not aware until a reporter told
her that Thomas Eric Duncan's
condition had been deemed crit-
ical and that she had not spoken
with him Saturday.
"I pray in Jesus' name that it
will be all right," Troh said in
a telephone interview from the
home where she and three oth-
ers are being isolated.
Texas Health Presbyterian
Hospital Dallas didn't provide
any further details or respond
to questions about Duncan's
health on Saturday.
Doctor treated for
Ebola hospitalized
A doctor admitted to a
Massachusetts hospital this
weekend for an apparent respi-
ratory infection after surviving
the Ebolavirus was instable con-
dition and feeling better Sunday,
but still has a fever and cough,
hospital officials said as they
awaited Ebola testing results.
Officials at UMass Memorial
Medical Center in Worcester
said Dr. Richard Sacra remained
in isolation as a precaution. He
was admitted Saturday and is
being treated for an upper respi-
ratory infection that doctors
believe is not related to Ebola he
contracted in Africa.
Dr. Robert Finberg, who is
leading Sacra's medical team,
said at a news conference Sun-
day that doctors are confident
Sacra's symptoms are not related
to the Ebola he contracted in
