$P56,000 grant

4

By CHERYL MCMILLEN
Daily staff writer
The University School of Library
Science will receive $56,000 in federal
grants to train specialists to .provide
library and information services aiding
minority and disadvantaged groups.
The University received the largest
grant from the U.S. , Department of
Education program, which recently
awarded library training grants to 34
colleges and universities.
LIBRARY SCIENCE Dean Russel
Bidlack said, "This (the University
receiving the largest grant) has been
the case for six years straight."
Bidlack said he credits this accom-
plishment to his department's "track
record for attracting highly qualified
women and minorities over the past
decade," and the comprehensiveness of
the proposals for aid.

The University obtained $32,000 for
four master's fellowships to increase
the number of minorities and
economically disadvantaged students
in the library and information science
field. Two doctoral fellowships for
$24,000 will help equalize the percen-
tage of women and minorities in
management levels of the profession,
according to the U.S. Department of
Education.
BIDLACK SAID he fears the Reagan
administration will cancel the grants as
part of its budget cut plan, so he will
wait to name the recipients. However,
Bidlack says there are many qualified
applicants for the positions.
A recent poll ranked the University's
School of Library Science second in the
United States for its masters program
and third for its doctoral program.

Reagan lobbies for
tax-cut proposal

Today
Happy birthday, 1lisses
T ODAY Mr. Leopold Bloom of 7 Eccles Street, Dublin, ate with relish a
grilled kidney which imparted to his palate "a fine tang of faintly scen-
ted urine." He was also found "abusing himself" on the beach in the late
evening while watching a seductress seduce him. Later on, Bloom resued the
drunk Stephen Dedalus from a whore house. In all it was quite an exciting
wombweary day for Leo 77 years ago, 924 months ago, or 28,124 days ago.
James Joycian aficionnados get together each year to celebrate Bloomsday
-the anniversary of the day portrayed in James Joyce's novel Ulysses. The
national convention this year is taking place in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Here
in Ann Arbor, local Joycians are going to gather at the Old Town Tavern, 122
,W. Liberty,,to read excerpts from Ulysses tonight at 8:30.
Akron archaeology
WHEN BUILDERS excavate a site for a new building, they sometimes
unearth arrowheads, pottery or remnants of older civilizations. In
downtown Akron, Ohio, they find bowling halls. Construction crews, digging
the foundation for a new 12-story office tower, recently found about a dozen
of the balls, beaten but mostly intact. "I thought they were dinosaur eggs at
first," said Martin Fairley, local manager for Murdock Management Co. He
recovered a broken ball and displays it in his office. Tony Galati, a long-time
Akron bowler, said the balls may have been merchandise in one of two stores
that used to occupy the construction site. Galati, however, said he could not
remember either store selling sporting goods. The balls may have been
dumped, but Fairley said they were buried unusually deep, about 55 feet un-
derground. Galati said several bowling alleys were once within a block or
two of the site, but it is believed they all shut down before the site was
cleared years ago. Construction workers dusted off the bowling balls and
took them home. o
Today's weather
Unfortunately, we can expect today's weather to be much like yester-
day's: Hot, humid, with a chance for more thundershowers. Today should be
very humid, with a high around 80 to 83. Thunderstorms are likly in the
morning, continuing to mid day. [

From AP and UPI
WASHINGTON - President Reagan
personally lobbied for his tax-cut
proposal yesterday with House
Republicans and Senate Democrats,
while his budget director and keyGOP
congres'sman sought ways to defeat
cuts recommended by Democratic-
controlled House committees.
Reagan entered the tax-cut fight in
earnest, extolling the virtues of party
loyalty to House Republicans and per-
sonally wooing potential Democratic
allies in theSenate.
TWO MEETINGS - one with some
GOP members of the tax-writing House
Ways and Means Committee and
another with moderate-to-conservative
Democratic senators - were arranged
for the president to put to use the per-
sonal lobbying he successfully applied
in the budget battle.
"This will be the first in a series of
meetings that will continue as long as
necessary with the tax bill pending on
the floor," said acting White House
press secretaryLarry Speakes.
Reagan heard optimistic talk at the
White House from Democrats, who
predicted the Senate will approve his
tax-cut legislation. Most of the 14
Senate Democrats he met with support
his proposal.
REPUBLICAN LEADERS told
If your spouse drinks too much and
you do not, and you want to help
your spouse change his or her
drinking, please call the MARITAL
TREATMENT PROJECT to see if you
qualify to receive free professional
counseling as a participant in a
treatment research project. Call
784-342 weekdays between
10 and 3.

Reagan yesterday they are concerned
that Democratic footdragging may
delay enactment of the ad-
ministration's tax-cut beyond his Aug. 1
target date.
The president conferred at the White
House with key members of Congress in
what Speakes described as "the
opening wedge of the president's effor-
ts" to lock up the support of key mem-
bers of Congress for his tax program.
Asked whether Congress will be able
tb finish the legislation by Aug. 1, Rep.
Barber Conable Jr. (R-N.Y.), said,
"Frankly, we're beginning to doubt it,
and that's one concern that we talked
about some."
CONABLE, RANKING Republican
on the tax-writing House Ways and
Means Committee, suggested
Democrats on the committee could find
their arms being twisted if they delay
the legislation.
Should Reagan persuade all of the
Republicans to vote for his cuts in the
House, he would need 26 Democratic
converts to win passage.
