MSA drafts proposal
on 'U' five-year plan
By GEORGE ADAMS
The Michigan Student Assembly today
will send administrators proposed
guidelines for the University's $20
million reallocation process under the
The proposal will be sent to President
Harold Shapiro, Vice-President for
Academic Affairs Billy Frye, Budget
Priorities Committee Chairman Mary
Ann Swain, and Senate Advisory Com-
mittee for University Affairs Chairman
It outlines MSA ideas for a three-step
process the University can follow
during its reallocation of General Fund
money to areas of high priority, an MSA
spokesperson said yesterday.
THE FIRST step of the procedure,
according to a copy of the proposal ob-
tained by the Daily, would be the
"issuance of specific definitions and
supporting rationale for the six (high)
priority areas" identified by Frye when
the Five-Year Plan was revealed
earlier this year.
MSA's proposal asks that terms such
as "an improved research environ-
ment" and "new intellectual develop-
ments" used in Frye's plan, be ex-
plained further. Step One also suggests
that definitions of the priority areas be
Step Two calls for a University-
sponsored public forum to discuss and
debate the high priority areas. The
forum, according to MSA, would
provide "ample opportunity for the
presentation of supporting rationale by
the VPAA (Frye) as well as oppor-
tunities for established representatives
of the faculty and students to present
alternative priority areas."
THE THIRD Step, the most impor-
tant one according to former student
representative to the BPC and current
chairman of MSA's redirection com-
mittee Jamie Moeller, asks that a
committee be created to determine the
amount and manner of reallocation.
The committee would be composed of
two students, two faculty members,
This comniittee would make recom-
mendations to the administration's two
budget committees on the reallocations
to each area of priority. It would also
issue a public report of its proceedings
to be examined'by the University com-
Moeller, who graduated last May
from LSA, said that the last step is the
crucial one. "Everyone's talking. about
the cuts, but where the money goes is
what will determine what the Univer-
sity looks like in the future," Moeller
THE PROPOSAL was composed by
Moeller, MSA president Amy Moore,
and MSA members Cynthia Reaves and
Cindy Phillips. Moore could not be
reached for comment.
LSA Student Government President
Margaret Talmers said the idea was a
good one, although she expressed doub-
ts over whether the administration
would take it seriously. "I'm sure all
the people in administration will smile
nicely, but won't do anything about it,"
Talmers said that Frye has been
asked to clarify the six areas of priority
on many occasions, but would only say
"they're very hard to define."
Moeller said the proposed
reallocation process would help clarify
exactly what the high priority needs of
the University are, and do so equitably.
The proposal was approved at an MSA
steering committee meeting June 3.
Maybe it would bebest to stay in bed today - the outlook is damp and driz-
zly with a high in the 60s.
D RACULA'S LUST FOR BLOOD, which made a literary legend out
of the Transylvania prince, may have been due to an allergic addiction
to protein-rich foods, an expert on allergies says. Attila the Hun may have
had the same problem, says Dr. Thomas McDevitt, a former researcher at
Idaho State University. McDevitt, who now runs an allergies clinic, said
many people who are allergic to substances also develop an addiction to
those same foods or materials. When deprived of those substances, they can
react in a "bizarre or greatly agitated manner", he said. McDevitt's studies
of Prince VIad Tepes, cruel ruler of a Hungarian province during the 15th
century who provided the basis for the Dracula legend, and Attila were
reported in an article in the Jule edition of 'Diagnosis,' a medical magazzine,
Further research on the man convinced McDevitt that Vlad "probably did
drink blood, both human and animal", and may have conmitted his acts.of
