House votes to boost student aid

By FANNIE WEINSTEIN
In an effort to restore funds that have
been cut from next year's federal
student financial aid programs, the
House of Representatives voted Thur-
sday to provide an additional $169
million to students.
In separate action, both houses of
Congress have passed a defense
authorization bill which will force male
students applying for federal aid to
prove they have registered for the:
draft.
ONE supplemental aid bill, which
was sponsored by Rep. Carl Pursell (R-
Ann Arbor), will add $29 million to the
Supplemental Educational Opportunity
Grant (SEOG) program. This will bring
the total federal SEOG allocation to
more than $307 million.
Another bill provides an additional
$140 million to the Basic Educational
Opportunity Grant (BEOG) Program.
This will bring the BEOG, also known

as Pell Grants, level to almost $2.5
billion.
Both bills, however, still need full
Senate and presidential approval.
ACCORDING to Thomas Butts, an
assistant to the University's vice
president for academic affairs, the bills
would mean an additional $50,000 to
$80,000 in SEOG funds for the Univer-
sity. It would also increase the
maximum BEOG award for University
students from $1,674 to $1,800.
The University originally expected
its 1982-83 allocations to drop more than
$260,000 from the SEOG Program and
$600,000 from the BEOG Program.
"It (the supplemental aid) would help
offset the loss of the $260,000 the
University suffered this year (in the
SEOG Program), Butts said. "We're
pleased to see it (support) take place."
HARVEY Grotrian, director of the
University's Office of Financial Aid,
estimate, that an additional $50,000 in

SEOG funds would be awarded to a
total of 50 students.
"It obviously would add to our ap-
propriations," he said, "but not im-
measurably."
Although all BEOG recipients will
benefit from the increase, students in
lower-income brackets will probably be
awarded the full $126 increase, accor-
ding to Butts and Grotrian. "In par-
ticular," Butts said, "it (the increase)
would protect the poorest students."
STUDENTS in higher-income
brackets will receive some additional
funds, but not as much as lower-income
students, Grotrian said. "The lesser the
need, generally speaking, the lesser the
benefit," he explained.
Grotrian said he was uncertain about
Senate passage of the bills, adding it
traditionally has been more difficult to
push financial aid legislation through B
the Senate.B

Layoffs and

reorganization
spark mixed
reports within
'U'med unit
By LOU FINTOR
Staff layoffs and the controversial reorganization
of a University Medical School department have
prompted .conflicting reports from the groups in-
volved.
According to staff members, two General Medicine
Unit nurse clinicians received layoff notices today,
despite assurances otherwise from Dr. Jeoffrey
Stross, head of the Ambulatory Care Division in the
Medical School's Department of Internal Medicine.
STROSS, however, said yesterday that one of the
clinicians turned in her resignation from the unit
weeks earlier and has accepted a position at the
School of Nursing. The layoff notice was an ad-
ministrative formality to ease her departure, he ad-
ded.
Meanwhile, two more General Medicine Unit em-
ployees-an office supervisor and a research
assistant-completed their final day of employment
yesterday.
Earlier reports indicated that all four would
receive layoff notices yesterday. Stross said that only
the nurses were informed yesterday, the other two
staff members had been informed approximately one
month ago. After the reorganization, the unit will
retain one full-time nurse clinician and one part-time
nurse clinician.
THE LAYOFFS are part of a reorganization plan
that will de-emphasize the role of nurses at the unit
due to reductions of a federal grant, according to
Stross.
As of July 1, the unit's name was officially changed
from the Primary Care/Community Medicine Unit to

New Beirut cease-fire set

From AP and UPI reports
Israeli jets, gunboats, and artillery hammered
guerrilla targets in west Beirut yesterday after the
United States apparently failed to get a commitment
from the Palestine Liberation Organization-to leave
Lebanon. The-attack ended three hours later under
the war's eighth cease-fire.
U.S. presidential envoy Philip Habib arranged the
new cease-fire at 9 p.m. (3 p.m. EDT). The guns fell
silent five minutes later.
Lebanese state and privately-owned radios said at
least 1,300 shells and bombs struck west Beirut;
during the three-hour bombardment.

THE AIR strikes had stopped at nightfall, about 90
minutes after they began, but the naval and artillery
bombardment raged until the new cease-fire took
hold.
In announcing the strikes, the Tel Aviv command
said: "The Israel Defense Forces does not see itself
committed to keeping a one-sided cease-fire."
It said the guerrillas had breached the cease-fire
Habib worked out Wednesday by rocketing Israeli
forces entrenched near Beirut's international air-
port.
BUT THE PLO said Israel "deliberately broke the
