The University's ranking for average
compensation to full-time faculty
members dropped from 23 to 24 na-
tionwide the American Association of
University Professors reports.
The drop comes even though the
University's average compensation rose
over last year.
The University's average compen-
sationrose from $15,573 for 1967-68 to
$16,729 for s1968-69. This is slightly
under the average nationwide increase
of 7.2 peg cent.
Last year, the University dropped
from 17 to 23 in the rankings.
The AAUP's ranking of universities
is based on each school's average com-
pensation for all full-time faculty
members. The compensation figures
includes salary, plus fringe benefits
such as life insurance and retirement
which the school pays in cash in be-
half of the faculty member.
The AAUP found that while the
average compensation increased by 7.2
per cent, accelerated living costs more
than offset the gains.

The average salaries for faulty mem-
bers at the University rose from
$13,682 to $14,604.
In compensation ratings which the
AAUP issued in the report, the Uni-
versity maintained its B rating. This
is also the University's rating for com-
pensation to full professors.
The University's rating for compen-
sation to associate professors rose from
an A rating to AA, the highest rating
At the same time AA ratings for
compensation to assistant professors
and instructors were maintained.
Vice President for Academic Affairs
Allan Smith said that he didn't think
the drop would hurt the University in
recruiting new faculty.
"We are still very competitive,"
Smith said. "The number of schools
who we are competitive with has in-
creased because they have come up to
"The great bulk-of recruiting is done
at lower levels," Smith said. These are
the positions where the University has
its best ratings.

y ratin
Smith added, "The professorial sala-
ry will still be high enough to attract."
"We asked the legislature for a
7 per cent increase but we are not
going to get that," he said. "We will
have to see how much money we will
get before we make any definite
Last year the University accepted the
resignations of 37 full, 11 associate
and 11 assistant professors. Charles
Allmand, said most of the faculty who
"left were leaving for personal reasons
and not financial.
Smith also said that we are still
among the leading public universities.
The report shows that the only pub-
lic universities ranking ahead of the
University are members of the City
University of New York (CUNY )
Only three schools received AA rat-
ings and these were Brooklyn College,
City College of New York and Herbert
Lehman College. All three colleges are
part of CUNY.
The grade rating given by the AAUP
for average salary is found by taking

dro ps
the lowest grade for either of the four
positions rated.
Among other universities, Harvard
is listed first with an average compen-
sation of $19,800. It is followed by
California Institute of Technology and
the University of Chicago.
Northwestern is ranked 9, while Yale
is 15, Princeton is 18, Columbia is 25.
Brandeis is 37 and the University of
California (taking the institution as a
whole) is 41.
Michigan State which had an aver-
age compensation of $14,705 dropped
from 51 to 75 while Wayne State,
which dropped from 84 to 101 had an
average compensation of $14,089.
Average compensation for other
major Michigan schools included Oak-
land University, $13,245; University of,
Detroit, $12,692: Eastern Michigan,
,12,389; Western Michigan, $12,262;
Central Michigan, $11,724, and North-
ern Michigan, $10,949.
The report is issued every year by
the AAUP.

Fires- start at
From Wire Service Reports
Fires broke out yesterday at City College of New York and
Howard University in Washington, D.C.
The fire at CCNY, described by fire department officials
as arson, broke out as the college tried to reopen after
Wednesday's bloody racial battle.
The blaze at CCNY destroyed Arnow Auditorium, once a
Jhapel, in a wing of Finley Student Center. One fire official
said a second-floor room of the student center was engulfed
in flames when the fire fighters arrived, but there were no
injuries reported. The fire followed an explosion in a closet.
As the dissarray spread, CCNY President Buell G. Galla-
gher said "adventurers in guerrilla tactics" had taken over
from responsible black and Puerto Rican students. The blacks,
and Puerto Ricans had barricaded the campus earlier this

Congressional legislation that
would cut off federal aid to
schools or individuals because
of campus disorders.
Fleming and Pusey, testifying
before the House Higher Educa-

lie with the school and, if neces-
sary, local authorities-not with

current disorders, but also agreed
that colleges will better adapt to
the situation without Congres-

versity's almost unique position of
'having "been spared" any major'
trouble "for reasons which are not
altogether clear," he conceded.
"We are under no illusions what-
ever that we are immune from the
tragic events that have taken
place on other campuses."
Fleming warned the legislators
that "despite the, presence of this
disorderly minority, it is not .
the root cause of our troubles, and
we do ourselves a disservice if we
succumb to that illusion."
iFleming cited the Vietnam war,
draft, poverty, and racism as the
major cause of disorder. The pres-
ident said he believed that "na-
tional priorities need to be re-
evaluated' in order to create a
more "viable system" for the na-
