Board passes 84-85 budget In a unanimous vote preceded by little public discussion, the Board of Trustees approved three University budgets Friday in the Bovee University Center. Heading the approved budgets is the general fund appropriations, totally 464,664,600. The budget is nearly $5 million over the the 1983-84 general fund allocation, stemming in part by increased appropriations from the state. By passing the general fund budget, the Board also granted President Harold Abel the authority to approve any expenditure more than $50,000 that was specifically mentioned in the budget document. Among the expenditures falling in this category are funds for limited remodelling at Kelly/Shorts Stadium — with an expected cost of $50,000 — and money for refurbishing women's softball ♦See "Board"—page 2 Phone 'bugs' exterminated by ROGER HITTS UFE Managing Editor Workers are continuing visits to academic buildings to work out the "bugs" in the recently-installed University phone system. 44 When tie phones were installed, we expected about 10 percent to cause some difficulty, and I think we came in a little under that," Telecommunications Director Ken Johnson said. The main problems have occured in the features the phone system carries, Johnson said. These problems are related to the software portion of the system, which is the responsibility of Northern Telecom — the phone's designer. Johnson said employees of Norther Telecom have been "working dilligently" to cor- tSee "Phones"—page 2 EMU football decision is nearing The clock is ticking down for Eastern Michigan. The EMU Board of Regents has scheduled a special meeting for Monday to decide whether or not the school will drop football or leave the Mid-American Conference. Eastern has until Aug. 1 to make the decision, one in which officials at the university refuse to speculate. "I really couldn't tell you what the University plans to do," said John Fountain, vice president of University Relations at EMU in an earlier interview. Both Fountain and Athletic Director Paul Shoults were unavailable for comment Tuesday. The upcoming meeting by the regents was a result of a MAC President's Council move to ammend the bylaws which would allow the conference to remove a school if necesary. Eastern was chosen because of its poor attendence average in the past few years. Last season, the Hurons could only muster 6,000 per home game. "The rationale behind the decision was based upon the assessment of the possibility of making the Division l-A criteria," said Janice Reynolds, vice provost of Academic Administration. "The conference is dedicated to maintaining l-A status." Reynolds, representing CMU at the council meeting, said Central did not support removing Eastern from the conference, but she did vote for the by-law revision. Reynolds said the fervor to remain in l-A conference is so instilled in a number of member schools, that some of them are willing to split away from the MAC "It is no secret Miami, Northern Illinois, Toledo and Bowling Green are really committed to be a part of a l-A conference," she said.
