Library Director. John Weatherford. said.- Park Library officials had planned to terminate several student assistants currently working for the library but have "juggled" funds to a void the move. Weatherford said. "I've been able to do some juggling of funds. We will not have to layoff students for winter term." he said. News of the terminations came earlier this week, when several students were informed they would not have jobs next semester: others were told they would have to cut hours weekly, a student employee said. Students will be informed as soon as possible that they will not be terminated. The previously planned terminations were a result of an approximate $40,000 deficit in the General Student Assistant budget, he said. The deficit was caused by a few factors: too many students were hired and there were large price increases in other parts of the budget, he said. One of those increases was the purchase of a necessary cataloging computer that cost the library about $40,000. "I realized the deficit because it (the budget) has been building over quite a period of time," he said. "We didn't know until the reports came in September and then we realized we hired too many students." he said. Weatherford said provost John Cantelon authorized the department to use money set aside for remodeling to cushion the deficit until next fall when the number of General Student Assistants hired will be reduced to j0-25 percent. "We feel we can put off that (the remodeling) and use the money to soften the impact." he said. There will not be any hourly cuts but each library department will make cuts where they can operate without some students, he said. The actual departmental cuts will be decided next semester. Weatherford said if there is not an increase in the planning process, the library will begin to pay the $40,000 ba*ck next year and that should take two semesters, he said. The library was allocated $179,000 this year toward general Student Assistant Employees and $80,800 toward College Work Study employees. He said CWS employees would not see any terminations because those jobs are not funded through the library budget. GSA students are paid through each individual departmental budget whereas CWS students are paid through Financial Aids.

GONZALEZ UFE Staff Writer A promotion announcement on 91 Rock FM Wednesday for the Kinks and Tommy Shaw was probably the only time that promo will be heard on 91. No, the show is not cancelled. The concert will go on as scheduled Dec. 5. Program Board announced Wednesday WCHP is co-sponsoring the concert. WMHW personnel took it for granted Program Board would select 91 as the co-sponsor of the semester's second major concert and started airing the show's promo Wednesday, the day the contract would go in effect. Promotions director. Kelly Flynn said. Although the contract was not signed by Program Board, the AOR (Album Orientated Rock) station began plugging the gig, Flynn, Warren sophomore, said. Flynn, said 91 assumed it would land the concert, but was not disappointed with PB's decision to go with WCHP. "1 feel the incident is nothing to sensationalize. We didn't get the contract, it was Program Boards' decision, their option." Flynn said. For 91 losing the contract was not a major set-back, but for AM 65 and 106 FM cable getting the tt .. .We didn't get the contract, it was Program Board's decision, their option. —Kelly Flynn. promotions director 99 co-sponsorship was an accomplishment. "It has been seven years since this station has sponsored something like this." WCHP promotion director Pete June said. "Everyone around here is very excited about the concert and I think this is just a start," June, North ville senior, said. Program Board's promotions coordinator Sheryl Turner. Marion senior, said both stations presented promotion packages and WCHPs was chosen. "WCHP goes to six different cities and with 91 we don't have that option. We're hoping WCHP is coming back and I think they're on the rise. With their promotions and ours, it might bring our ticket sales up," Turner added. Schuette edges Albosta In U.S. House race After upsetting Democratic incumbent Rep. Don Albosta in the 10th Congressional House race. Republican Bill Schuette promised to try to gain a seat on the House Agriculture Committee. Schuette, a 31-year-old attorney from Stanford, defeated Albosta 104.977-103,805 capturing 50.3 percent of the vote. Schuette. before about 100 supporters Wednesday morning at his campaign headquarters in Midland, said he will attempt to gain a seat on the House Agriculture Committee so "mid- Michigan farmers have a voice in Washington". The attempt to gain the committee appointment was one of Schuette's promises throughout the bitter campaign. Schuette criticized Albosta's voting record on House Agriculture committee votes and subcommittee votes throughout the campaign, Albosta called Schuette a "liar" and said he was trying to distort his voting record. Albosta was critical of Schuette's spending during the campaign, saying he was attempting to buy the election. Schuette spent approximately $550,000 to Albosta's $350,000, reports stated. Schuette also said Wednesday a balanced budget is another one of his goals. He said decreasing rates and growth of the federal budget is the way to a balanced budget. * In a statement, Albosta said, "It's pretty clear there was a Reagan landslide and many people voted straight ticket, which helped sweep Schuette into office." Albosta could not be reached for comment Wednesday. Polls prior to Tuesday's election indicated Albosta had a 12 percent lead over Schuette. But Schuette maintained he had "momentum" and would defeat Albosta. Albosta, of St. Charles, was seeking his fourth term in office. Schuette's victory was the only one among challengers in Michigan's 18 districts. Democrats will hold all of the districts. — The Associated Press contributed to this story.
