some have speculated that the
president may refrain from making
an announcement this week due to the
extensive publicity concerning his
FLEMING'S DESIRE to let loose the
reins of his presidency, which he has
held since Sept. 1967, has been no
secret. In a Daily interview in May,
Fleming said he planned to seek other
employment by 1980. His decision, he
said at that time, was based on his
feelings that an administrator could
become ineffective if a decision-making
post were held for more than a decade.
"I have long said that a University
should turn over its top leadership
regularly," Fleming reiterated

Fleming's announcement is expected
to come as no surprise to the faculty.
The faculty Senate Advisory
Committee on University Affairs
(SACUA) established a committee
during the summer to establish
guidelines for the selection of a new
away, Fleming would also be able to
take advantage of the University
pension plan which administrators
become eligible for at the age of 62.
Fleming will be 62 in December.
But the 61-year-old president has said
that he intends to remain active when
he leaves the University. Throughout
his career here he has received
numerous offers from both the private.
and public sector.

"THERE'S A WHOLE slew of things;
I might do," Fleming said. "It depends
on who approaches you first."
One source said that Fleming was
"kicking around" three possible job
opportunities, but the source declined
to comment on what those opportunities
might be.
In addition to various committees
and panels Fleming currently serves
on, he is a board member of John Deere
and Chrysler, board chairman of the
American Council on Education and a
member of the National Archives
Advisory Council.
Fleming's first years at the
University were dominated by
continuous and sometimes violent
student unrest. He became president
January 1,1968.


EPA: PCB not threat t4

(Continued from Page 1)
Sprague said the danger presented by
the metals in the soil varied with a
number of factors.
THE DANGER levels of the metals
depend on the soil type, crop, specific
metal present, and the amount of water
in the soil and in the sludge.
Franks said the metal content does
not "exceed federal guideline values."
Food and Drug Adminsitration
(FDA) technologist Pasquale Lombar-
do said no definitive safe figures have
been arrived at for metal content in
sludge for farm application.
FRANKS ALSO said PCB has been in
fertilizer for years and a level of 5 ppm
is acceptable to the human body.
Curtis Coker of the FDA's complian-
ce division said the maximum
allowable content of PCB in finished
animal feed is .2 ppm.
Coker concurred with Franks,
"Evidence shows PCB doesn't tran-

slocate into crops, but when cattle eat
grass (with PCB in it) it gets into their
BOTH MEN acknowledged the poten-
tial danger of the PCB becoming con-
centrated in water resources through
rainfall runoff, but could not suggest
measures to prevent it.
Sprague said the DNR approved
either putting the sludge in a clay-lined
Ann Arbor landfill or shipping it to
"We did not prejudice which decision
would be most acceptable," he said and
added the crucial factor should be cost.
He sid it was suggested that the city
employ the alternative "most accep-
table for agricultural use."
SPRAGUE ADDED, "It's a good
sludge - it will work in an agricultural
program very easily.
In mid-July the EPA ruled that the
city must award the contract for
getting rid of the sludge to the lowest

bidder. That bidder was Spence Bros.
Construction Co. Spence Bros. in turn
awarded the contract to Ny-Trex.
Shipment of the sludge is being paid
for by a federal grant, according to
Sayers. He said the grant was awarded
in two phases, but he could not recall its
total amount. The first phase of the
project has been underway for sev'eral
years and the second phase has begun
with removal of the sludge, Sayers said.
THE SECOND phase includes the
construction of incinerators which will
burn the sludge removed from the raw
sewage. They will be located on the
present site of the lagoons holding the
sludge. Thus, this will not be a
recurring disposal problem.
Sayers said the water will be much
cleaner once the plant is completed.
However, it is scheduled to take three
years to build the facility. The new
plant will employ an additional
cleansing process called tertiary

treatment. This treatment incorporates
an extensive filtration process and
should rid the water of suspended
solids, as well as put an end to Ann
Arbor's pollution of the Huron River.
Director of the Ann Arbor Public
Works Department (DPWi Joe Price
said air pollution permits to incinerate
the sludge in the future have already
been secured. Price added that Ny-
Trex is trying to secure sludge

farmers now, specifically in Lenawee
Originally the DPW tried to spread
the sludge on sites in Ann Arbor

sters Union yesterday charged NBC
with "wanton" disregard of known
"facts" in news stories the network
reported concerning the disappearance
of ex-Teamsters boss James Hoffa.
The book "The Teamsters," by
Stephen Brill, includes a section on the
Hoffa case in which Brill, quoting what
was described as an FBI affidavit,
theorizes that Hoffa's body was
disposed of at a Hamtramck, Mich.,
sanitation firm.
BRILL ALSO explores the alleged
role of Teamsters President Frank Fit-
zsimmons in the case.

professor, we lose one also," he
What worries Frye most about his
present faculty is the increasing age of
many members, he said. "Our faculty
is characterized by older and older
professors and their ideas - which
aren't getting any younger."
TWENTY-THREE per cent of the,
1973 faculty members were younger
than 35, but now, only 15 per cent are
that young.
Another indicator of age is tenure, he
said. Presently, 81.6 per cent of LSA
professors are tenured, while only 71.8
per cent were five years'ago.
"Older faculty members simply can't
maintain the pace of 18 hours a day that
they did when they were younger," he
said. "And in scientific fields, it's hard
to keep up with the new technology."
He said, however, that age may be a
plus in some fields, such as linguistics,
where mastery may take a long time.
