Mich 48859 Fraternity allegedly involved in bar incident by PAUL MASON UFE Managing Editor Police are investigating an incident at the Cabin early Wednesday morning in which about 30 individuals wearing Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity apparel allegedly threatened a bar employee and threatened to "blow up" employee cars in the parking lot.

Stevens, Larzelere Hall president, said since the barn's construction last December he has received many complaints. The lot serves five residence halls: Larzelere, Trout, Calkins, Robinson and Barnes. Many commuters use the lot also, he said. "We had a parking problem before the bam was built. A lot of people are getting hot under the collar about the situation," Stevens said. Department of Public Safety officials also see a parking problem in the area. "I'm around there all the time — parking is scarce. It was even before the barn was built. The residents have a legitimate complaint," Sgt. Ronald Griffiths, of the Department of Public Safety, said. There were several locations considered for the barn, Bob Ringel, director of plant extension, said. The Northwest lot location was chosen because a large area was needed for auctions and it was close to the grounds area, he said. The spot also was inconspicuous, sort of of f-campus and not very visible, he said. The parking lot also provided an asphalt floor for the barn, Ringel added. To make up for lost, parking space, tbe lot waa re-striped, Ringel said. Tl» lines were made perpendicular and the parallel parking was changed to angle, he said. Spaces were added to the east side of the lot also. Because the lot is intended for the residents, DPS also proposes to keep commuters out of the lot to ease the space problem, |See "Pole Barn"—page 2 it We are aware of It (the Incident).

"A recent poll by our department showed that one third of all high school seniors don't know who to contact about financial aid," Engler said. Students should be able to take advantage of financial aid available from private as well as public sources, Engler said. "This hotline is important because last year $1.2 million in terms of private scholarships was unclaimed by high school students who could have qualified," Engler said. "We want to make sure they are used." Funding for the hotline, which will be based in Lansing, has been tentatively included in the 1985-86 budget for the Department of Education, Engler said. It will be considered by the Legislature during the spring. The hotline will cost approximately $100,000 to implement. The proposal includes the addition of two full time and one part time staff people, Engler said. The hotline will be connected to a computer system which will give a print out of all available scholarships. Students will be able to call and get the assistance they need, Engler said. "I think it's an excellent idea," said Donald Breckon, associate dean of the school of Education, Health and Human Services. "Anything we can do to provide financial assistance is beneficial." "It's an interesting concept," Robert Walling, director of Financial Aid, said. "I can't imagine it being anything but a good thing." "I think a more intriguing idea would be to establish a scholarship bank," Walling said. "Then maybe have direct access from the bank to computer systems in high schools so students can do a search and find available scholarships they would qualify for." Thursday's misty and rainy weather prompted Jill Ruble, left, and Tricla Stickle, both Bay City juniors, to take cover from the day under their umbrellas while strolling down tbe path near the Park Library pond. County jail waiting list scaled down by TOM W1CKHAM UFE Staff Writer About half of the 164 misdemeanor offenders wailing to serve time in the Isabella County Jail probably will not have to serve time due to a recent scaling down of the jail's waiting list. Lt. Thomas Recker, jail administrator, said a review of the waiting list determined 83 people had completed the terms of their sentences except for jail terms. In effect, he added, their jail sentences have been suspended. However, 76th District Court probation officer Mary Cannon said she and fellow probation officer Raymond Klosowski reviewed the waiting list but were unsure what would happen to those found eligible to forego jail terms. "To my knowledge nothing has been implemented to remove people from the wailing list," Cannon said. "The one's that were on the waiting list were sentenced to jail." "All we were asked was to go over the list. If there were going to be any alternative programs, see if they (offenders) were eligible," Klosowski added. "It was not right to allow people to wait three years to serve " About 81 people were prion tized by the probation officers as "must serves" who will be required to serve jail time, Recker said. And in an effort In move Ihem through the jail in a timely fashion.

Monday night. This honorarium is given to the executive board every year, Hudson said. Last year each executive board member received $110 for the year, this year they will receive $150, he said. "I was very surprised that the assembly voted to increase the honorarium. The amount really does not matter to me," Hudson said. The executive board is comprised of five officers. A total of $750 will be subtracted from the Residence Hall Assembly treasury to pay the board members, RHA chairman Bill Hudson said. The treasury is supplied by the University housing department. One dollar is subtracted from each resident's room and board payment each semester and put in the treasury, George Jennings, director of Housing and Food Services, said. The amount is "pretty minimal," Jennings said. The honorarium is intended to be a compensation for the time and money the executive board members put in to RHA. Hud son said. Many universities grant Iheir RHA chairman free room and board, he said. "With free room and board, the idea is the chairman has more time to devote to the organization; they do not have to worry about a job." Hudson said. Sharon George, coordinator of Student Activities, said the honorarium was justified. "With no stipend, you limit the organization to people who do not have to work to go to school. CMU is definitely under-rated in this area," she said. Hudson said RHA has no kind of petty-cash account systems Many times RHA executive board members must pay for phone calls, postage or supplies out of their own pocket, he said. The positions are volunteer positions, so the money should not be a reason for running for executive board, Hudson said. ♦See "RHA" — page 16 In Brief Students have until today to pay any outstanding tuition and fee debts before the University starts involuntary withdrawal.
