Newt Editor Student Bodyi President Mike Fraser found a microphone hidden behind a painting in his office while moving in Friday, his first day as president. At this time, there is no clear explanation of who planted the microphone or why. j The microphone is the type used in portable cassette recorders, according to Tim Webb, of Educational Media Services, who was called over to Student Government offices in the lower level of the UC at the request of Jerry Quick, associate director of Auxiliary Services. Quick was called by Fraser, Lansing senior, after the microphone win discovered. Black tape connected the microphone to telephone cable. The cable went through a partition in the wall of Fraser'* office, then was taped to the ceiling. From there, It was .taped to a corner of a wall in the outer Student Government offices. The cable ended underneath the desk of Media Information Services, where the eable was cut, near a telephone outlet. The microphone and the telephone cable were removed by Det. Sgt. Leslie Bonstelle of the Department of Public Safety, who is investigating the incident. Bonstelle said officials of General Telephone would be called in totjay to see j! they have any information. Webb, however, said he doubted the phone company would know anything about the "bugging". "My guess is somebody picked up some telephone cable around campus. There is a lot of it laying around. It was so amateurish job," Webb said. Fraser took over as president, following Vicki Bazan's resignation Thursday due to illness. Fraser was arranging furniture when he noticed the microphone behind the painting. "I was totally floored when I saw it," he said. Both Fraser and Baxan speculated the "bogging" was connected to events surrounding the resignation of former Student Body President Doug Thomas last semester. Thomas said he knew of no one who would have tried to "bug" him:- "Nobody' I know would stoop that low," Thomas said. Thomas resigned in February after admitting he had used money from a special student association discretionary fund for personal reasons. Former Student Body Treasurer Chuck Korn, Student Body Vice President Steve Davis, Media Information Service Director Dave Demers, junior class ■ representative Jim Cambridge, and Laura Mohl, Public Interest Research Group in Michigan (PIRGIM) representative also resigned during the same time period. Both Bazan, contacted in St. Joseph where she is recuperating from mononucleosis, and Fraser said they had theories on who placed the microphone in the office, but did not name the person because they were not sure. "It was set up for a definite purpose, but not for Vicki (Bazan) or me. My guess it is somebody no longer involved with student government," Fraser said. Both said they felt it was someone who was involved in student government. Bonstelle said there is little chance of finding who placed the microphone in the office at this time. "There is no hard evidence. It could have, been placed there six weeks ago, six months ago, or six years ago." Department opposes AP salary increase by PAM KLEIN LIFE News Editor Responding in part to the recent pay increase of University administrative personnel, the Sociology and Anthropology Department Friday adopted a resolution statingiit cannot "in good conscience" discuss ways to cut its budget as ordered by the fe> ^^Uh^jA $52,042 Donations may exceed goal by SHARONJOHNSON CM LIFE Reporter United Way Fund Drive coordinators say collection tallies from last week's Isabella County drive should exceed designated goals, but due to late returns final figures, will not be available until sometime this week. As of Sunday, $52,042.'had been collected in .Isabella County. This . figure includes about $1,121.22 in cash and pledges collected by Student Foundation (SF) in the student drive and < approximately $10,000 donated by University employes. The University, through the employe and student drives, hopes to raise £17,000 of the $82,000 the county is planning to raise. "But, again, we haven't reached our goal yet because all figures are not in," Paul Heydenburg, chairperson of die Isabella County Drive, said. "When all loose ends are tied up, we should even go over our goal with no problem." A total .of $600 was collected during SF-sponsored door-to-door solicitations in dorms, married housing and sorority and fraternity houses Thursday night. "This was the biggest fund" raising project of the week," Karen Landers, SF president, said. "We are proud of the students. They really gave a lot." An 18-hour radiothon, co- sponsored by WMHVT-FM radio on Thursday, also was successful, Landers said, although she did hot know the specific amount of money collected. Remote stations were set up in various dorms and at the - University Center, and pledges were taken by phone. SF also win receive proceeds from the cover charge at a Happy A Hour Thursday at the Alibi, 3965 W. Broomfield Road. In addition, the Alibi wili match this amount as their donation to United Way.

This figure, to be released, early this week,. cause Flu 'normal' effects should be approximately $100 to . $125, according to estimates made before the drive began. Calkins Dorm Council also pledged to match one-half of last week's pinball receipts. The Dunking Machine event scheduled for Tuesday Was can* celed due to inclement weather, and a 30-hour Dance-a-thon conducted Friday night lasted two hours because only two couples showed up. John Richardson, SF- drive director, could not be reached for comment during the .weekend because he was out of town. Landers, Ohio senior, added there still are collection cannisters in the Reservation and dorms. The cannisters will be picked up today. University. The University had asked departments to cut their budgets to cope with a projected 1976-77 budget deficit of $815,000. The statement was supported by approximately two- thirds of the department membership, according to Edward McKensa, associate professor of sociology and anthropology, Who originally submitted the resolution. "There was no single action by the administration which prompted it," McKenna said. "However, the AP (administrative personnel) increase was the straw that broke the camel's back." Administrative personnel, non-teaching professional personnel excluding CMU's top administrators, recently received an additional 2.9 per cent pay increase on their base salary, bringing the total 1976-77 increase to 8.3 per cent. The resolution states estimates of the amount of University resources and budgeting of those resources have been improperly used and "the University administration, in its political machinations, has seen fit to cut support of academic programs." The resolution continues that though the department cannot fight these policies they "resolve to avoid complicity in them." "In good conscience the Department of Sociology and Anthropology cannot submit a Program Plan document for 1977- 78; nor can we in good conscience discuss ways in which to 'absorb' any decreases in our SMCS (supplies, materials, contractural (See "Salary ..." page 8) Senate considers UP requirements Academic Senate will consider whether University Program courses should be categorically excluded from majors or minors and pre- professional requirements at its meeting Tuesday .in Pearce 138 at 3:15 p.m. Senate will discuss a report of the Ad Hoc Committee to Study the Department and Department Chairperson Review Process.
