The majority of a random sam-
plirg of students said they opposed
the deputization of a University se-
curity force in a survey conducted by
The Michigan Daily,The Michigan
Re iew, and Consider magazine.

Funds for the Guaranteed Student
Loan Program could be increased by
millicns of dollars and the entire
loan process simplified if the Bush
admin istration eliminates commer-
cial banks in the loan system.
U ider the current program, which
loas $10 to $13 billion to students
each year, students receive funds
through ?ommercial lenders insured
by the ederal government.
The government then increases
the lender's rate of return on new
loains by 3.25 percent above market
in terest rates.
By eliminating the role of com-
nmercial lenders, the government
would no longer have to pay banks
the extra 3.25 percent and would
save hunadreds of millions of dollars
that would become available as addi-
t ional loan money, said Tom Butts,
d irector of the University's Washing-
ton, D.C. office.
"Money that would have gone to
the banks would be available to help
stutdents," Butts said.

different days, ballots were dis-
tributed to students from all colleges
as they exited from CRISP.
The ballots asked students
whether they agreed, disagreed, or
had no opinion about the statement
"The University should have a depu-
tized security force on campus."
Out of 3,047 students, 52 percent
(1,583) answered that they disagreed
with deputization, 29.4 percent (897)
marked that they agreed with the
measure, and 18.6 percent (567) had

"A poll will not have any effect
at all," said Regent Deane Baker (R-
Ann Arbor). "The decision has been
made, and the process is already un-
derway to establish a police force."
Walter Harrison, executive direc-
tor of University relations, said he
was not surprised by the number of
students who said they were against
the deputization plan.
He added, "We chose to have a
University police force because we
thought it was the most effective
way to reduce crime. I hope that in a
couple years more students will see
that this was the right decision."

To conserve money in light of
anticipated state funding cuts, the
University's Board of Regents ap-
proved a smaller raise for University
President James Duderstadt than for
other administrators and faculty. The
raise wa's approved at the regents'
Duderstadt will receive a five per-
cent raise, compared to other Univer-
sity administrators and faculty who
will receive a five and one-half per-
cent raise which was approved in
September. The raise will save the
The raise will increase Duder-
stadt's salary from $162,839 to
$170,981 and will be retroactive
from the beginning of the fiscal
year, Sept. 1.
"The president agreed to a less
than average salary increase with the
University facing tough budgetary
constraints," said Regent Philip
Power (D-Ann Arbor).
The regents concurred that they
would have liked to give the presi-
dent a larger raise, but budgetary
constraints prevented it.
"The level of the raise is in re-
sponse to the University's tough fi-
nancial situation," Power said. "It
does not indicate a lack of confidence
the board has in the President."

Democratic City Councilmember
Liz Brater announced her candidacy for
Ann Arbor city mayor on Dec. 18.
Brater, who represents the third ward,
will run against two-term incumbent
Mayor Jerry Jernigan (R-Fourth Ward)
in the April election.
Jernigan, who has served as mayor
for the past four years and held a seat
on the city council for five years prior
to his tenure as mayor, could not be
reached for comment.
Brater plans to focus on the city's
residents in her campaign. "I'm very
concerned that the citizens of Ann
Arbor get the best possible services
for the money they're paying," she
"The roads are crumbling; the
parking structures are held up by two
by fours... We need to take a really
hard look at what we're doing in City
Hall and find out how we can do a
better job," Brater said.
Aside from the physical condition
of the roadways, Brater said she wants
to make the streets safe in more than
one way. One of her primary goals is
to reduce crime in Ann Arbor.
Councilmember Jerry Schleicher
(R-Foun Ward) said he believed
