Naming of Israeli to U. of Texas
M.E. Studies Center Stirs Dispute

NEW YORK (JTA) —
The American Jewish
Committee said it is closely
watching a dispute at the
University of Texas at Au-!,
stin over the proposed ap-
pointment of an Israeli-born
historian to the university's
Center for Middle Eastern
Studies this fall.
The squabble, which has
been going on for a month,
started when the univer-
sity's history department
recommended that the cen-
ter appoint Abraham Mar-
cus, a 31-year-old Tel Aviv
University graduate now
completing work on a docto-
rate at Columbia Univer-
sity.
The proposal calls for
Marcus, whose field is mod-
ern Arab history, to be ap-
pointed jointly to the his-
tory department and the
center.
The center rejected the
proposal saying that
Marcus is not qualified
for the position which in-
cludes supervision of ad-
vanced graduate stu-
dents and running the
center's freshman pro-
gram.
The history • faculty,
which was asked by the cen-
ter to find a historian, main-
tains that Marcus is a qual-
ified scholar of great prom-
ise.
This view is shared by Ira
Silverman, who, as director
of the special programs for
the AJCommittee, heads a
project urging American
colleges and universities to
establish guidelines in ac-
cepting grants and other
funds from foreign coun-
tries. The University of
Texas Center is partially
supported by funds from
Arab governments.
Silverman said that it
would be "shocking" if Mar-
cus or any other qualified
applicant was denied an
academic position because
of national origin.
He said he believes Mar-
cus "is well qualified" for
the position. At the univer-
sity, a compromise is being
mentioned which would
have Marcus appointed to
the history faculty but not
to the center. Silverman
said that while this could be
acceptable it would "high-
light the moral bankruptcy"
of having academic deci-
sions made for political rea-
sons.
He added that if the
university fails to ap-
point Marcus it would be
"selling out cheap." He
noted that the University
of Texas is one of the
richest universities in the
country with 'a steady in-
fusion of Texas oil
money. The center repor-
tedly receives about

$100,000 a year from
Arab governments.
Silverman stressed that
Marcus has not engaged in
the public controversy over
the appointment and is
waiting for it to go through
"channels."
In proposing guidelines
for schools receiving foreign
money last March, Silver-
man said that some pro-
grams displayed an anti-
Israel slant, were funded
with the provision that
Middle East studies not in-
clude Israel, or that Jews be
excluded as instructors or
students.
The
AJCommittee
guidelines, which were
aimed at preventing ,uni-
versities and colleges from
agreeing to discriminatory
practices or biased courses
when accepting foreign
money, went to 187 schools,
including the University of
Texas.
Silverman said the
University of Texas had
not approved the
guidelines as yet but has
been approached by AJ-
Committee chapters in
the area.
However the situation is
resolved, it raises questions
about how the realities of
international politics affect
the internal politics and
academic affairs of a major
university. And in this case,
the university is the major
state institution in a state
with extensive oil industry
ties to the Middle East.

So far, the squabble has
not surfaced in a political
context within the state, al-
though some history profes-
sors and Jewish groups
have given some thought to
filing a lawsuit if Marcus is
rejected.
Inside the university,
the situation has pro-
voked a closer examina-
tion of the ties between
the Middle East study
center and Arab coun-
tries.
The center r,eputedly has
been scrupulous in observ-
ing guidelines involving the
Arab money. The guidelines
say, essentially, that no
strings should be attached
to the grants, and that they
should. be made for specific
academic purposes.
