night of "lying to the staff" about severing its ties with the
Central Intelligence Agency by Larry Rubin, 23, who told the
Associated Press that he is quitting as educational affairs di-
rector of the NSA.
Rubin, who said he plans to return to his studies at Antioch
College in Ohio, challenged the statement by NSA officers last
month that financial ties with the CIA had ended last July. He
said the CIA still holds the lease on the association's headquarters
building, and he declared the NSA shows "little inclination" to
make a break that would cause it to "lose government funds
and favors."_

recognized as a student organiza-

cause it has not complied with

out of the subpoenaing of mem-

A resolution opposing negotia-

Because the University has de-

cy contracts, it is bound to these
provisions. The University News
Service in announcing the recom-
mendations erroneously stated that
the authority for the review was
given under Title VII (equal em-
ployment opportunity),of the, 1984
Civil Rights Act. Contacted last
night, Greene said the survey "has
nothing to do with Title VII."
Greene said further that the
survey of employment practices is
"a normal function" of his office
and that while such studies have
in the past been primarily confin-
ed to corporations, Michigan State
University, Marquette' University,
University of Wisconsin, and the
University of Detroit have all un-
dergone similar investigations In
this area.
Using statistics compiled in
February and March of 1966 and
including 16 departments of the
University, the survey found min-

10 per cent of the total. Minority
