LANSING - The University will not
remain ranked as one of the best public
colleges in the nation unless the state
boosts appropriations for higher
education, said University President
Harold Shapiro Friday.
According to Shapiro, the state
legislature has not allocated the funds
necessary to maintain the quality of
higher education. "We are disinvesting
in education," Shapiro said to members
of the state's Senate Appropriations
Committee at a hearing in the Capitol
Building. "If this trend continues, we're
not going to remain in a leadership
position," he added.
SHAPIRO SAID the state has forced
the University to rely on jacking up
tuition in recent years to make up for
inadequate increases in state ap-

They were thousands of miles apart, but Tim McCormick
and Eric Turner reached the same decision - both will
forego a final year of basketball eligibility at Michigan to try
their luck in the NBA draft to be held June 19.
Turner, a junior, mailed a letter to the NBA from Amster-
dam on Friday informing the league of his decision. The 6-3
guard is in Europe on a 10-day tour with the Michigan
basketball team. His decision means he cannot compete in
any of the Wolverines' scheduled seven exhibition games.
MCCORMICK, a senior who sat outa year due to a knee in-
jury and thus has an extra year of eligibility, announced
yesterday that he would pass up his final season at Michigan
and enter the draft. Though a senior, McCormick could not
have been selected unless he announced his intentions to turn
professional. The 6-11 power forward/center had originally
planned to stay in school but changed his mind when the
University's graduate school rejected his application for
The players' decisions ended weeks of vacillation and
speculation. They enter a draft pool that includes other un-
derclassmen, most notably consensus college player of the
year Michael Jordan of North Carolina, Houston center
Akeem Olajuwon and Auburn's 265-pound forward Charles

41 percent of those attending the caucus
were for Mondale and that Hart and
Jackson each had the backing of 26 per-
cent of those attending.
Based on that projection, and his own
figures, Mondale claimed a "very big
win" in Texas even before any actual
caucus figures were reported.
