Monday, NOV. 7, 1 983 Th Post-Crescent, Appleton-NMnah-Menasho. Wis. A-7 InWisconsin Animosity reigns between Earl and Maier Look at last two years, Proxmire says of aid ( MADISON (AP) - Sen. William Proxmire, D-Wis., says state government should look at the bright side of the $1.9 billion in federal aid which Wisconsin received last year, not the fact that the decrease from 1981 was proportionally larger in only one other state. Proxmire said one reason federal aid to Wisconsin fell 17.6 from 1981 to 1982 was that it had risen $300 million a year in each of the two previous years. 1 "Nobody said anything about that," he told an interviewer. "There were no stories. It wasn't even back among the furniture ads. The only time news about these things surfaces is when it's bad." Proxmire said federal aid to Wis-, consin is really holding its own when 1981's peak is disregarded. Gays Mills honors Marine bomb victim GAYS MILLS, Wis.

UW 5th in number of foreign students MADISON (AP) - The UW-Madi-son campus ranked fifth nationally last year in foreign student enrollment, according to the International Institute of Education. The recently released report said UW-Madison had 2,680 foreign students registered for the 1981-82 school year, making up 6.3 of the total fall enrollment of 42,230. Nationally, people from other countries comprised 2.7 of about 12.4 million total students. Miami-Dade Community College in Florida had 4,186 foreign students to lead all schools. There were 6,166 foreign students in the state last year, a 14.8 increase from the previos year, ranking the state 15th in the U.S., the report said. It said California had the largest foreign student population last fall with 49,715. Asian students makeup most of the foreign student growth, the institute said.

Earl says his relationship with Milwaukee Mayor Henry Maier couldn't get any worse, but that if it could, it probably would. "Of all the people and all the groups, I guess the only one where the relationship is totally broken is with Henry. I have just about given up on that," Earl said in an interview. Maier and other city officials have accused Earl of reneging on a 1982 campaign promise concerning state aid to municipalies. The 1983-84 budget actually provides municipalities with more than they got last year, but not as much as Maier says Earl promised when he was shopping for election votes. The mayor has also expressed outrage with Earl for insisting on building one and perhaps two penitentiaries in downtown Milwaukee over the protests of property owners. The Democratic governor said he has good relations with some persons on Maier's staff, "but with the person at the top, there is no relationship." "I don't go out of my way to pick confrontations because I don't think it is fitting that the chief executive of the state's largest city and the governor do battle over everything," Earl said. "But sometimes it seems that I can't say anything but that Henry will react negatively," he said. Earl said some of Maier's animosity may stem from the fact that he supported Dennis Conta against Maier in the 1980 mayoral election. The governor said he would not campaign against Maier next spring if the mayor runs for re-election as expected. "I don't feel about Henry as he apparently feels about me. I don't think any purpose would be served by 'getting rid of him,' and frankly I don't even think it's my province to consider such a thing," Earl said.
