Finance Committee recommends average
cuts of student organizations 50-75 percent
By JANET OLSON
The Campus Governing Council
Finance Committee will present a balanc
ed budget of about $224,000 to the full
CGC for approval Saturday.
At a marathon budget hearing
Wednesday night which concluded
Thursday morning at about 5:45, the
Finance Committee reduced its previous
appropriations to student organizations
by about $39,000. As expected, the
reduction meant further cuts for most
student organizations. Average cuts rang
ed from 50-to-75 percent.
Committee members failed to balance
the budget during first budget hearings of
the 35 groups requesting funding. The
committee then selected organizations for
further discussion and made further cuts.
Tim Newman, chairman of the hear
ing, said that because all student
organization representatives had left by
the time the committee held its second
discussion, these groups would be con
tacted before the second proposals were
added to the budget bill.
The committee recommended no ap
propriations go to the Sexuality Educa
tion and Counseling Service.
Newman, said Thursday, committee
members decided SECS services overlap
ped with those of the Contraceptive
Health Education Clinic and Student
But SECS co-director Nancy Dorer
said Thursday she felt the committee had
acted on misconceptions about SECS.

ratification of the Equal Rights Amend

ERA. "He could change the attitude of
the Senate as lieutenant governor, but we
also need a change of the legislature's
body." Stewart is a Democratic can

Dorer said she planned to attend the
CGC meeting Saturay in an attempt to
get her organization funded, but she
feared other groups might resent her ask
ing for money which would essentially be
taken from their budgets.
WXYC also suffered a major budget
cut, as the committee voted to recom
mend the station do away with its United
Press International wire service, thereby
allowing a $4,200 cut in WXYC's budget.
Newman said the committee's justifica
tion for the cut was that WXYC could air
local and campus news rather than wire
"I don't think the station's mission
was hurt by that cut," Newman said.
"They can work the local news beat a lit
tle more instead of just ripping and
reading wire reports."
WXYC station manager Bill Burton
said Thursday the loss of the wire service
would cut the station's staff in half. The
WXYC news staff does not have time to
research news stories, Burton said. In ad
dition, staff members would not receive
a physical product of their efforts, he
said, and the experience they might gain
would be insubstantial.
"That experience wouldn't be worth

Burton said his only options without
enough student government funding
would be to find grants, raise funds or
turn the station into a radio jukebox.

Student Government refused to provide
enough funds for the station, WXYC
would be less accountable to students
because it would be using less of their
money, he said.
Student Television suffered a 50 per
cent cut in its request for Student
Government funding. STV asked that the
committee allocate $5,985 to cover opera
tional expenses. The committee voted to
appropriate $2,993 and requested that
STV raise the remaining $2,992.
Newman said committee members
decided to halve the request, because they
felt students had already voted to loan

A proposal currently before a House
subcommittee to extend the Higher
Education Act of 1965 may determine
whether college students can receive more
money from federal government Pell
Grants beginning in 1985.
If the bill passes the Post-Secondary
Education Subcommittee, Congress then
will decide whether to reauthorize the
Higher Education Act this year or delay
its extension until next year. The act ex
pires in 1985.
"It's the omnibus legislation that con
trols all federal aid to higher education,"
Marsha Wice, a staff member of the sub
committee, said this week. The bill is like
