THE UNIVERSITY'S EXTENSION Service (foreground) faces a budget cut of nearly 90 percent, partly as the result of
a special committee's recommendation (background) to eliminate the program entirely.

concepts such as 'central to the Univer-
sity of Michigan mission' what were
never defined."
They acted in "near total ignorance"
of the situation and the service, he ad-
ded.
"IT WAS A bad, bad report," he said.
Schultz added, however, that he feels
the present budget committee, under
Frye, is "much more informed."
The director of Saginaw's center,
which will be gone as of September
30th, John Benjamin, said the commit-
tee's charges that the service isn't cost
effective were false. "Indeed, we
proved that we are cost effective," he
said.
He added that the charges that the.
quality of the programs was not high
was unfair. He said that accusation was
a charge against the Ann Arbor faculty,
because they conduct many of the
programs.
BENJAMIN, WHO has been with the
University for 32 years, said, "It was a
shock to me when the subcommittee
report came out." He said that persons
living outstate will suffer.
The director of the Grand Rapids cen-
ter, Leonard Rowe, said he was critical
of the press release sent to program
staff members informing them of the
official cut. He said the release was
stated in "antiseptic terms."
"The realities are not evident in a
press release," Rowe said, adding that
he felt the cuts show that "off-campus
learning is not zealously promoted by
the University."
HE ADDED, however, that he doesn't
believe "the extraction of the Univer-
sity (from Grand Rapids) will affect
education in Grand Rapids. The
University's role has been rather
small."
In Detroit, Schultz said the Rackham
Building won't be closed, but that staff
members are no longer pushing the
notion of a graduate center.

NEW YORK (AP)-Secretary of
State Alexander Haig Jr. flatly denied
yesterday that the administration is
dragging its feet on arms control, and
declared instead a resolve to strike a
deal with the Soviets which "truly
strengthens international security."
"The charge that we are not in-
terested in arms control or that we have
cut off communications with the Soviets
on these issues is simply not true," he
said. He added he has a "broad agen-
da" in mind for talks to begin in
November.
BUT HAIG linked any reduction in
the weapons race to Moscow's
behavior, saying, "Soviet international
conduct directly affects the prospects
for success'." Any other approach, he
said, "ends up by saying that in order to
preserve arms control, we have to
tolerate Soviet aggression. This ad-
ministration will never accept such an
appalling conclusion."
Haig's remarks, clearly part of the
administration's new drive to demon-
strate it has a comprehensive foreign
policy, came in an address to the
Foreign Policy Association.
The secretary was the target of
hecklers shouting "Money for jobs, not
war. U.S. out of El Salvador," as he

began his speech, and officials removed
one protester from the hall.
"WITH A CLEAR sense of direction
and a dedication to the serious objec-
tives of arms control, this ad-
ministration will strive to make arms
control succeed," Haig said.
But he said the United States will also
insist on building up its military
strength. "It is one of the paradoxes of
our time that the prospects for arms
control depend upon the achievement of
a balance of arms."
Haig said negotiations won't work if
they are "dominated by pious hopes
and simplistic solutions."
HE SAID THE paramount aim of
arms control "must be to reduce the
risk of war." To that end, he said, the
administration has adopted a "realistic
set of principles to guide a more effec-
tive approach to arms control." They
are:
* Arms control efforts will be an in-
strument of, not a replacement for, a
coherent allied security policy.
* Agreements should "truly enhance
security."
* Negotiations should take into con-
sideration "the whole context of Soviet
conduct world-wide."
" Agreements must be balan-

ced-"the Soviet Union must be more
willing in the future to accept genuine
parity for arms control to move
ahead."
* Agreements must include effective
means of verification and mechanisms
for securing compliance.
" All Arms control processes and
weapons systems must be taken into
account in negotiations even when not
the subject of negotiations.
Haig said the administration is pur-
suing a "broad agenda" of specific ar-
ms control efforts. The United States
hopes to begin formal negotiations with
the Soviet Union by mid-November, he
said, on ways of controlling deployment
of medium-range nuclear missiles in
Europe.
