A snip here, a snip there, a little
off the sides. Envision Ball State
President John Worthen playing the
role of the barber: standing over the
University's budget, clipping any
long or out-of-place hair — cutting
as close to the scalp as he possibly
can, but still very careful not to nick

the education.
The cuts, which will be reallocated into a pool for the salaries of staff,
faculty and administration, will
come from each
of the 11 major
budget units: the
president's office,
the four vice
offices and the
six academic colDispute
"We're going
to have to find ways to do more with
less," said Worthen. "We must continue to increase productivity and

reduce expenses if we are to maintain the quality of education and the
creative momentum which faculty
and staff have developed."
Although it is still early in making cuts, many departments have
just begun talks and leaders admit
they are anxious about the cuts.
"I don't know how we're going to
make these decisions," said Carl
Warnes, Biology Department chairman. "To cut anything is going to
create some hardships. It's not
inconceivable that the cuts can cut
into the education — I hope they do
not. It's just that something has got
to give."

Harry Macy, Social Work
Department chairman, questioned
the priorities of the university.
"I'm very much in favor of compromising with the university, but I
don't think that across-the-board
cuts are the right thing at this time,"
Macy said. "I'm very concerned
about the priorities of the university.
Across-the-board cuts do not reflect
the priorities of the university."
Donald Whitaker, Math
Department chairman, said he is
going by the assurances of the president, who said that education will
not be affected.
"The president has indicated that

it won't hurt the education and we're
using that as a guideline," said
Betty Brown, Business Education and Office Administration professor, said she believes the university is doing what it has to do.
"When you hit a crunch like that
you have to look at the alternatives,"
said Brown. "I have confidence in
President Worthen that he has
looked at all the alternatives and has
made his best possible decision.

Ball State added 28 points to its

Saturday at Ball State Stadium.
This comeback surpassed the

Bad weather
cancels parade
Groups which were scheduled to
participate will be reimbursed after
parade was canceled because of rain.
by Andrea Hill

Chief reporter

"It's Homecoming Day 1993. I'm not here right now.
Have a good day and hope the rain stops by 9 a.m."
This message on Homecoming Adviser Charlotte
Shepperd's answering machine summarized the feelings of the Homecoming committee and Alumni
Association Saturday. Bad weather caused the parade to
be canceled.
"When we heard the state police reports that thunderstorms and heavy rains were in the area, we decided
to cancel the parade," said Doug Beddome,
Homecoming chairman.
Shepperd said the cancellation was out of the committee's hands because "it was due to nothing other
than the weather, which we couldn't control."
This year's parade would have been the largest ever
for a Ball State Homecoming. Lori Shepperd, Charlotte's
daughter and parade committee chairman, said there
were plans for "floats, bands, equestrian displays, batons
and a separate band contest during the parade."
There were also plans to break the world record for
the largest marching band in a parade.
