The Joint Confererifce Committee on Higher Education granted the state Department of Management and Budget's request to remove the word "equal" from the approved appropriations bill. The JCC originally agreeded to pay public universities and community colleges 12 months of appropriations in nine equal payments from October to June. It Colbert's attorney asks for trial delay By Mary Church LIFE Staff Writer . .. An._<Jsabella .County - judge , received a third request Monday to postpone former CMU student Terrance Colbert's trial on • a third-degree criminal sexual conduct charge to an indefinite date. Bruce Havens, Colbert's attorney, filed the motion in Circuit Court stating "as a result of acts by the prosecuter, the District Court, the University and others it is impossible to be prepared to proceed to trial on Oct. 21." Earlier this month Judge Paul O'Connell changed the jury-trial date from Sept. 23 to Oct. 21. In the motion to adjourn, Havens stated the first notice he received of Isabella Courity Prosecutor Larry Burdick's plan to call expert witnesses was Aug. 23. On Sept. 18 the prosecuter's office provided Havens with a supplemental police report containing additional information which Havens stated will require . See COLBERT Paqe 2 ELLERTSON SCOBY has since deleted "equal" from the bill. During an earlier interview, DMB budget analyst Bob Endriss said removing the word was a preventative measure waiving legal guarantees about the monthly size of funding in case of future state cash-flow problems. ' Removing the legal safety net . leaves CMU administrators guessing the size of each upcoming month's appropriations, and the University's investment' capabilities up in the air. "We simply can't invest money we don't have." said Kim Ellertson, Vice president for Business and Finance. "We can call up a bank and invest money for as little as two days — but we would earn a lot more interest if we could afford to leave it in there a month," he added. CMU already is feeling the squeeze of the state "deferral" of $4.7 million. Approved July 3, House Bill 4078 canceled the fourth-quarter appropriations payment to higher education institutions but stated an intent to make up the funds in its fiscal 1992, which begins Oct. 1. The deferral accompanies an appropriations plan which dictates universities will record all state funding in the year for which it's appropriated, imposing a cash-basis system for recogniz ing state funding. This rewording of the plan's language make the deferral "harmless" to CMU, said Greg Rosine, associate director of the House Fiscal Agency. Rosine said the deferral was a "one-time gimmick" the state used to take advantage of the state and university fiscal-year overlap to help balance the state's budget. CMU's fiscal year spans July 1 to June 30, while the state's runs Oct. 1 to Sept. 30. CMU administrators agree the See MONEY Page 6 LIFE Photc/Nile Young GET PHYSICAL: Jane Norris.

FTE cuts causing concern If enrollment projections are off, backlog may occur By Crystal Harmon LIFE Assistant News Editor Cutting the equivalent of 58 full-time faculty positions for the 1992-93 academic year has some campus community members concerned about the future. There will be problems if enrollment does not drop as predicted and full-time equivalents, or FTE, are cut, said Francis Molson, English chairman. "If the same amount of students show up, either class", size will go up or fewer sections will be offered," Molson said. "Students will not find classes to take, a backlog occurs, and the (English) program suffers." One FTE equals one full-time or two half-time positions or any other combination of hours that equals one full-time position. Provost Robert Franke announced Tuesday that 58 FTE will be cut for the 1992-93 school year if preliminary enrollment projections are accurate. Student credit hour projections, usually made the preceding November, determine the number of FTE needed for the upcoming academic year. Although projections made last November indicated that 38 FTE should have been cut for the current year, President Edward B. Jakubauskas decided to delay the cutback. The enrollment projections for 1991-92 were more than 99 percent accurate. Director of Institutional See FTE Page 2 Broadcast union near settlement with CMU By John Mulvaney L'PE Staff Wnter ROTC discrimination question still a hot issue across nation KxW* &&*& By Mary Church LIFE Staff Writer The Academic Senate may have temporarily silenced last semester's controversy over a possible elimination of ROTC at CMU, but similar debates remain heated around the country. Illinois Gov. Jim Edgar vetoed a bill Sept. 20 which would have prevented a public college or uni versity from banning the program on its campuses. Ohio passed similar legislation in July, which is now in the state budget. The issue stems from the U.S. Department of Defense policy prohibiting homosexuals from military programs, including the Reserve Officers' Training Corps. A CMU student who encouraged the removal of ROTC from campus last year, disagrees with such legislation. "When whole state legislatures are saying institutional discrimination is OK, it says a lot about our society," said Paul Emmett, Mil ford senior. "It says there's justice for few, not everybody." He said gay and lesbian groups across the country will continue See ROTC Page 2 ^University and Public Broadcasting bargaining teams negotiated into the night Thursday and at press time were nearing an agreement, according to a union official. j*3f Details of negotiations have yet to be released. "fcThe National Association of Broadcasting Employees and Technicians Local 412 bargained all day Thursday, said Linda Hyde, union president and public information director for Public Broadcasting, h '''We are in mediation right now," Hyde said Thursday night. .^Things are going well; we are optimistic." £,,The union represents 25 Public Broadcasting employees. The .union's contract expired June 30, but was extended indefinitely. ?r?The Policy Officer Association of Michigan, representing 15 Department of Public Safety officers, also is negotiating contractual , issues. ^V Although the contract does not expire until 1993, union officials are discussing economic openers in the present agreement. ;g£ *It*s important that both sides understand what the agreement '. says." said Therm Looman, president of CMU's branch of POA. "It ^shouldn't be too long, whenever both sides can reach a compromise."
