Central Michigan LIFE Vol. 66 No. 75 ©1984 CM LIFE 18 pages Mount Pleasant. Mich. 488S9 Friday, April 13.1984 Golden accepts Illinois post byMIKEMATTSON UFE Sports Editor Laura Golden had to say it to her team Wednesday at a team meeting and she knew it was not going to be easy. Indeed, after exiting a meeting with her Chippewas. Golden found out it was one of the most difficult emotional settingsofherlife. "I think it was one of the hardest to do because all of us have grown to respect and care about each other," Golden said. "It's not that I'm their coach and they're my players. 1 think we're friends. I think it's much harder to say goodbye toa friend thanan employer or an employee." At the meeting. Golden announced for the first time to her team she would be leaving friends. CMU and Mount Pleasant to accept the head coaching position at the University of Illinois in Champaign, III. Golden accepted the position Tuesday after serving as head coach of the Chippewas for three seasons. Golden said she had her first contact with Illinois following the first round of the National Collegiate Athletic Association tournament March 17 in which Central lost to Alabama. Karol Kahr. women's athletic director at Illinois, said she wrote Golden a letter informing her of the vacant position. "At the point in time the position opened, I contacted Laura and told her I'd like her to be a candidate if she wanted to be one." Kahr said. "She was the one I sought out and the one who was nationally recommended to me. "Laura has the capabilities of leading us to the Big Ten championship, and within time make it to the final four. I've known coach Golden for 10 years and have a high regard for her. It's a plcasure*to have her. She's the best coach we could hire." said Kahr, who picked Golden from a field of about 75 applicants. Golden said her ties with Kahr were a big reason for accepting the position. Kahr and Golden have known each other from the days when Golden was a coach at Colorado College in ColoradoSprings.Colo. "Herelhicalstandardsandphilosophiesof women's athletics are similar to mine as Fran Koenig's were." Golden said. ♦See "Golden"—page 2 1974-75 G*or*l»CoU*l*. 1975-76 Colorado College. 1976-77 Colorado College — 1977-78 Colorado College— 1978-79 Colorado College — y*'t—" 1979-80 Colorado College... 1980-81 Colorado College... 1981-82 Central Michigan University 1982-83 Central Michigan University. 1983-84 Central Michigan University. cMun.*u Ch* lift C44H41 Colg*" Laura Golden, CMU women's basketball head coach will no longer be carried from the court at Rose Arena as she was after the Mid-American Conference semi-final game against Northern Illinois.

The proposal, which still has to be approved to be on the November ballot, would return the state's income tax rate to the December 1981 level of 4.6 percent and require voter approval for any future tax increases. If the amendment is approved, the .5-percent reduction in state income tax would occur in the middle of the state's fiscal year and could force funding cuts. "There'd be some cuts and indeed it could be fairly severe in the first year. The '85 budget is not made up to cover it (cuts)." said Rick Willits. economic analyst with the Office of Revenue and Tax Analysis of the Department of Management and Budget. "Unquestionably, some of the cuts would have to be out of education and social services," Willits added. "...There's no way to bring a budget under control without cutting those — they represent too big of an area (of funding)." For Central, a cut in state funding could mean a tuition increase and cuts in programs, said Jerry Tubbs, vice president for Business and Finance. The appropriation cuts last year left Central with an approximately 52 million deficit. "If they started cutting again, quite frankly. I don't know what we'd do." Tubbs said. "...I would expect there wouldbeachange intuition." If Central's appropriation fell below the 10-percent increase expected for next year. Tubbs said a tuition increase would be needed, and if the ♦See "Proposal" — page 9 Senators want input Students urged to attend Senate hearing Students will have the opportunity to attend Central's state Senate appropriation subcommittee hearing today, as they are meeting on campus for the first time in more than 10 years. Central will host the subcommittee and present funding requests beginning at 10:30a.m. in the President's Room of the University Center. "If there are some students who wish to testify. I would encourage they attend." Sen. William Sederburg. Senate higher education subcommittee chairman, said. "We're there to find out what's going on. We're going to be receptive because that's what it's all about," Sederburg. R-Kast I rinsing, said. Central probably will request funding for its proposed merger with the Michigan Molecular Institute in Midland and for equipment. Arthur Ellis, vice president for Public Affairs, said. Other items of discussion will include Central's joint pre-engineering program with Michigan Technological University, developments with University Park and Central's proposed Industrial Education Technology building Friday the 13th background is surrounded by mystery by STEVE MASSIE UFE Stafl Writer Although it has no doubt been at least a blue moon or two since someone like Jason, the goalie-masked murderer of Friday the 13th horror movie fame came slashing and stabbing into town, there is considerable historical weight in the mystique surrounding Friday the 13th. The weight is by no means confined to a local scale. Ken Folkert, associate professor of religion, said. "In most universal calendars certain days have both good and bad qualities." he said. "In India Tuesdays and Saturdays aren't so hot, especially Tuesdays." Folkert said even through extensive research he has found no concrete reason why specific days are associated with favorable or unfavorable connotations. Folkert said in contemporary times, the 13th had been considered a darker day due to circumstances surrounding the crucifixion of Christ. He added however, "Friday had long been considered a bad day before the crucifixion theory. It's more of an after- »See "Friday"—page 2 Keilitz makes bid for athletic director slot byMIKEMATTSON LIFE Sports Editor If any of the final six candidates for the athletic director's position knowsab- out the functions and dealings of CMU, it most likely would be Dave Keilitz. Keilitz has served as head baseball coach for 14 .seasons and obtained his master's degree (1965) and bachelors degree (1964) from Central while living m Mount Pleasant. He believes his Central roots are worthwhile reasons for assuming the responsibility of AD. "I know this University and I know how it operates and I know the community very well." Keilitz said. "I know alumni and I know the state very well. You need great rapport with the University, with the commun ity, and around the state and with alumni and 1 think 1 ran give that." Keilitz is the fourth candidate granted an interview for the AD position, which becomes vacant with the August retirement of Ted Kjolhede. Keilitz. who serves as coordinator of the CMU Century Club, said he believes fund raising will bea critical area for the next AD. "I think certainly one of the major areas the athletic director is going to be concerned with is athletic fund raising and that is why two years ago 1 got into the Cen tury Club, to get some background," Keilitz said. Although Central is known nationally, Keilitz said it is the rapport with the community and state that is important. He foresees most of the new monies raised coming from alumni and friends out of the area and around the state. ♦See "Keilitz" —page9 Dave Keilitz In Brief The Crop Run Walk, sponsored by the CMU Chapter of Bread for the World, will begin Saturday at 11 a.m. Registration is from 9:30 to 10:45a.m. Campus Two CMU students who were displaced from their home before Spring Break, moved back into their remodeled dwelling this week. page 8 Sports The CMU Women's basketball team reacts to Laura Golden's decision. page 12 Weather Showers likely today, highs in 50s, with the low of about 40.
