Hood expects the senate to
support the house budget, but
doubts it will request an increase
over what the house asked for. "I
don't think that the governor or the
legislature can afford to go much
beyond $19 million," Hood said.

Petoskey) "This will help define the
type of person we're looking for."
Shapiro was chosen in 1978
after a similar evaluation of the
University's needs. According to
Regent Thomas Roach (D-Saline),
he was chosen on the basis of 19
qualifications compiled by students,
faculty, and alumni. "We thought
he was fantastic when we picked
him, and he's exceeded our
expectations," Roach said.
Shapiro's seven-year term as
president was marked by strong
economic guidance and develop -
ment. Shapiro initiated the Camp -
aign for Michigan in 1983, in an
attempt to increase alumni dona -
tions to the University.
The four-year project - running
until December 31 - has already
raised $155 million. The University
has allocated the money to student
aid, fellowship funds, and profes -
sorships as well as to building or
renovating buildings on campus.
Shapiro is also noted for his
ability to unify the administration.

The Archdiocese of Detroit has a job to do.
We know some people who are facing tough
choices in life who need good advice. We know
some people who are facing no choices who still
need hope. We know a lot of great kids who need
a place to be kids, and maybe someone to bring
the ball or the music. We know a few older people
who are going to die whether or not someone is
there to bring them peace.
All over the Archdiocese there are people who
need a place to count their blessings and share
their sorrows-people who need a hand, or a
shoulder to lean on, or sometimes just an ear.
At Sacred Heart Seminary we're teaching
young men to use the hands and shoulders and
ears and hearts God gave them. It's a great
education. A college degree. Graduate work.
We'll give you up to eight years to decide you
really want to be a priest before we ask you to
do it for good.
Sure, the hours are long. But they're flexible.
And if you come to work here, you'll get rich in
ways few people can imagine.
Not everyone can do the We Itte
job. If you think you can, call us. G d Calls
We can't call vou.-
