Damages and other expenses resulting from the "Western Weekend" bash will be discussed, Martin said. "I am not at liberty to go public at this time with the names of • the groups,1* Martin said. Martin and City Attorney Bill Shirley decided to meet with the groups privately before publicly announcing which groups Drug bust would be billed. "Whether or not we go public with the bills will depend on what we come up with in the meetings," Martin said. James Hill, vice president for Student Affairs, was unavailable for comment regarding which groups would be involved in the discussion. Sharon George, assistant director of the Office of Student Life, was not aware of any progress in the party billing. The Phi Kappa Tau and Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternities, both located on Main Street, have not received notification by the city regarding the party bills. The other Main Street fraternities could not be reached for comment. denied by CHERYL JACKSON LIFE Staff Writer All of Student Government Association's programs appealed' to the Student Budget Review and Allocations Committee last week have been denied, but SGA still may receive funding for a proposed Tenants Union housing list. "It's very possible the housing list will still be put into effect, but we're looking to get it through Housing," SGA Vice President Joe Barger said. Barger said a factor in SBAC's denial of the money may be because 80 percent of the proposed budget was for operations while only 20 percent was for programs. "But, my argument to this is that we are not Program Board; we do not do programs for the students. We provide services," Barger said. Barger said personally, he has problems with the budget allocations system. "What it does is puts the control of $84,000 in the hands of a few students that may be involved in organizations or may not be involved in organizations. If you look at the SBAC, I don't think you'll find anybody in there, except for a few students who work with Sharon George (coordinator of Student Activities) that are heavily involved in the operation of an organization," Barger said. "The thing is that the experience is not there." Barger did most of the work on SGA's budget and said it was as itemized as possible for an organization such as SGA. No padding was used in preparing it, he said. The budget was the first Barger had ever prepared. SGA originally requested a budget of $16,113, a decrease of more than $19,000 it received from SBAC last year. Cuts appealed include $300 for a computerized ride board program, $400 for a computer interface, $200 for printing costs and S275 for the housing list. SBAC Chairman Rick Morat said SGA's appeal might have been unsuccessful because no recommendations were made at the appeal that were not made at the original hearing. Tbe extra money for printing was turned down by SBAC because the committee is trying to make sure that all organizations keep their operational costs as low as possible, Morat said. ♦See "SGA"—page 2 Program Board budget allocated Cocaine possession results in arrest by TIM SMITH UFE Staff Writer A West Bloomfield man was arrested Monday afternoon in Mount Pleasant for delivery and possession of cocaine. Mount Pleasant Director of Public safety Martin Trombley said. Mark D. Adams, 28, was arraigned in District Court that afternoon and released on a personal recognizance bond by District Court judge Peter O'Connell. A Mount Pleasant undercover police officer made the arrest after an anonymous tip was phoned into the Mount Pleasant City Police. The caller tr The undercover officer approached the car and completed a "transaction of a quantity of cocaine." —Martin Trombley Director of Public Safety 99 told police Adams was observed "acting suspiciously" while sitting in a parked car. Trombley said the undercover officer approached the car and completed a "transaction of a quantity of cocaine." The arrest and charges were made , following the transaction. At the arraignment. Judge O'Connell set a preliminary examination date for Oct. 18 in Isabella County District Court. Because no bond money was posted, Adams is liable for court fines if he fails to appear for the hearing. The charge ot possession and delivery of cocaine carries a felony penalty of 20 years in jail and or $25,000 in fines, a spokesman for the Isabella County Prosecutors Office said. Adams was charged with possessing less than 50 grams of cocaine, and the drug was sent to the Michigan State Police Crime lab for testing and identification, the Prosecutor's Office said. A dollar amount on the confiscated cocaine was not available. Adams was unavailable for comment at his West Broomfield home. by ROGER MORGENSTERN UFE Staff Writer Program Bnard has received one-third of their requested funds from the Student Budget Review and Allocation Committee. PB president Ann Higgins said she is pleased with the allocation of funds, which was announced Monday. PB submitted a budget of approximately $108,000 and received a total of $39,420 in SBAC funding. Although Higgins said she still believes the requested amount is needed "for the programming this campus deserves," she was pleased with the allocation. "I'm pleased with it, although I would like us to get more in allocations, but SBAC only gets so much money for funding from the University," Higgins, Ohio senior, said. During the SBAC hearing, PB provided a priority budget list totalling about $64,000. This was done to narrow down the different programs and show the most important ones, Higgins said. This year's SBAC allocation is almost $5,000 more than last year's allocation. Higgins said she believes SBAC is getting a better understanding of the programing that PB wants to presenttoCMU. A section of Student Government Association's appeal to their allocation of SBAC funds still is under consideration. SGA's appeal consisted of a proposed computer ride board for $300 and a $400 computer interface. These were defeated by SBAC. A third issue, a $275 •See "SB AC" — page 14 Committee recommends Abel not move by JAMES GEMMELL UFE Staff Writer President Harold Abel should not have his residence moved from its present location at 524 E. Bellows, an advisory commi t- tee recommended in a non-public written report to the Board of Trustees Friday. The seven-member committee appointed by the Board to find alternative housing for Abel and future Central presidents unanimously recommended Abel's house continue to serve as the CMU president's home, William Odykirk, trustee and advisory committee member, said. If the Administration and Board follow the recommendation, it will mean that the Alumni and Development Office will have to find housing other than Abel's residence to move its overcrowded staff, Odykirk said. The alumni staff are presently in Rowe 105. The Alumni and Development Office has sought larger facilities to house its staffing and equipment since the Board of Trustees recommended a new facility might be a good idea for a president's residence at a June 1 meeting. "It's my understanding that the committee had a consensus that we would not move the Alumni and Development program Into the president's home at this time," Odykirk said. "Several people on the committee spoke quite fluently to the issue that they felt that (house) was a cornerstone of the community's town-gown relationship," Odykirk said, referring to Abel's home at the northeastern-most corner of campus and its link between campus and community. The Alumni and Development staffs need for larger facilities than the president's house could provide along with the urgency of finding new housing for the alumni-development staff were additional factors weighed by the committee, Odykirk said. Originally requested by the Board to submit a preliminary report on immediate housing tor the president by Oct. 1, the advisory committee opted instead to hold off presenting its recommendations until the Board of Trustees met in session on Friday, Odykirk said. Only Board president Alfred Fortino, however, received a copy of that report, whose contents were not disclosed to the public, Odykirk said. Fortino and Abel could not be reached for comment. "The committee's consensus was that we would keep the house for the president's residency and there would be no additional allocation for funding (for presidents) to live off- campus," Odykirk said, deferring comment on specifics of the report to committee chairman Arthur Ellis. Ellis, vice president for Public Affairs, was out of town and could not be reached for comment. Odykirk said there probably will be a search both on and off ♦See "Home"—page 14 In Brief The last day for free senior portraits for the 1985 Chippewa yearbook is Oct. 26.
