THE PUBLIC IS IN VI TED

by ADRIENNE LYONS
The club is one of the nation's most
successful private donor associations.
Members must pledge a minimum of
$10,000 over a period of 10 years, or
make a bequest or a life insurance
policy valued at $1;000 in order to join.
The group is not an organization of
Mideast oil barons, but rather the
University Presidents Club, which held
its 17th annual meeting here this
weekend. Since its founding in 1961 by a
group of alumni, the 2,336 members (of
which 200 are faculty and staff) have
contributed over $59 million to the
University.
AT THIS weekend's meeting, mem-
bers took part in a variety of activities
including lectures, receptions, tea at
President Robben Fleming's house,
and finally the rain-soaked football
game on Saturday.
Many members, such as Ed McPher-
son of Bay City, come from so-called
"blue-blooded" backgrounds.'McPher-
son said, "It's (membership in the
club) been quite satisfying, a natural
culmination." McPherson has 17

University alumni in his family.
Another member with "blue-blood"
is Jack Armstrong of Pittsburgh. Ar-
mstrong, who graduated in 1951 and
received his law degree in 1955, said his
daughter graduated from the Univer-
sity last year. A member of the Alumni
Association, Armstrong has been con-
tributing to the Presidents Club since
1972.
FORMER REGENT Robert Briggs
has been a member of the club since its
creation. He designates some of his
money to the William Clements
Library. Much of it, he says, is left un-
designated to the Presidents
discretionary fund.
Robert Quirk of Westland, and Rick
Berlin of Southfield donate their money
to specific interests: Berlin, who likes

the football team, donates to the
Athletic Victors Club, which provides
athletic scholarships, and the Athletic
department; Quirk plans to contribute
to the Copernicus fund, which collects
money for studies devoted to Coper-
nicus.
"The funding of the Presidents Club
provides variety. I want to contribute to
the Copernicus fund, because he is an
individualI know something about. He
is an example of a liberally educated
man who contributed to his society,"
Quirk said.
He added, "The program (the
Presidents Club) is an outstanding one.
The president speaks, a'hd each year
there is a new aspect. The University
uses, its resources, and achieves more
results. It's strong because itss neither
solely state nor privately funded."

SCHWARTZMAN ADDED, "Not only levels because it is cheaper not to hire
do our wage increases not keep up with people and have the existing workers do
the cost of living, but our wages are more work. A union could negotiate

University-wide seniority system so first get an independent union. "We're
that people with the most seniority facing a history of University anti-

This film was made prior to the period' that Angela Davis went to jail, accused
of murder, kidnapping and criminal conspiracy. The film documents Ms. Davis'
explosive career as a political leftist. She is never ato a loss for words, and we

addresses political meetings, holds informal discussions, and finally leads a
crowd of protestors into the courtroom at San Rafael, California.

This movie, based on THE AUTOBIOGRAPHY OF MALCOLM X, is composed
