on Library Council

Coupon contracts may be forges

The University Library Director met
with members of the Senate Advisory
Committee on University Affairs
(SACUA) yesterday to discuss a plan
which would give SACUA the right to
participate in the selection process for
members of the University Library
.The proposal would allow SACUA to
select seven of the nine members of the
Council from the University faculty at

large. The other two members would be
recommended by Library Director
Richard Dougherty.
THE PROPOSAL also provides that
SACA be kept up to date on any library
buiness. If the full faculty Senate
Assembly approves the measure, it will
go to the Regents for final approval.
According to the present rule, Council
members are selected by the Regents
and approved by the University
president. Each member is recom-
mended by the Library Director.
Among the qualities Dougherty said
SACUA needed to look for in choosing
Council members were the need for
people who can spend a lot of time and
effort on Council work, and the
flexibility to be able to attend frequent
"Members must transcend
traditional acadmeic departments,"
Dougherty said. He explained that
faculty members can't assume that
they represent their particular depart-

chants affected are honoring the
coupons despite the fact that there are
no contracts between "The Enter-
tainer" and themselves.
LeMar explained that three salesper-
sons, including himself, solicited the
memberships from area merchants.
"I gave the other guy (the
anonymous employee) the easiest
possible ones (stores to canvass)",
LeMar said. "These were ones that
were either published in newspapers or
were published in other passbooks. I
didn't give him any that he had to be

creative on," he said.-
"I DON'T think he was trying to
defraud me,"'LeMar continued. He ex-
plained that because these establish-
ments were already in other passbooks
he felt the employee assumed that they
would sign up with "The Entertainer"
but did not '"understand the im-
plications of it."
Meanwhile LeMar's legal problems
appeared to be mounting. According to
Hughes Pottiker, president of the Bir-
mingham-based "Entertainment '78",
his company is -investigating possible

legal action against LeMar because of
the similar name of LeMar's company.
"We sent the book ("The Enter-
tainer") on to our patent attorney
because we feel it may be an in-
fringement on our name," Pottiker
POTTIKER SAYS his 17-year-old
company has a "national registration"
on the title "Entertainment."
LeMar admitted that in choosing the
name "The Entertainer" he was
"trying to get a name close to theirs to
take advantage of their advertising

without trying to fool anyone." LeMa
said that his graphic logo distinguishei
his dompany from "Entertainmeni
In a related development, LeMai
admitted he has applied for a non-profil
organization's license under the name
"University I-Board."
University I-Board is the corporation
that will be doing the door-to-door can
vassing while I-Board Inc. will be
making the profits, LeMar explained.
LeMar said that while such a practicj
is "not ethical", it was legal.

Council contemplates parking structure

THE CITY MUST purchase land
presently owned by the bank and air
rights-which Murray hopes will be
free-to extend the structure over the
existing bank building. The housing
could be complete simultaneously with
the structure, Belcher said.
The propsed structure will have
about 500 parking spaces at a cost of
$5,000 per space, according to Murrary.
Critics of the plan-in other words,
the Democrats-say the cost of the
project will be picked up by drivers who
park in other structures and at meters
around the city to compensate for the
initial cost of the new structure.
INCLUDED IN THE administrator's
memo outlining the plan was a
statement from Assistant City Ad-
ministrator Patrick Kenney, who said
monthly revenue per space would have
to be $59.30 to break even. Kenney said
in his memo, "This may-

well be a difficult task," and he stated
that the present average monthly
revenue per space is, now $29.59, and
$32.83 at the Maynard structure.
He also cautioned that it will take
several years to build a clientele for the
new lot which will fill enough to be cost
Morris challenged figures presented
in the memo that qualified Maynard as
a structure operating "filled to
capacity" at 87 per cent full between
1:00 and 2:00p.m., which the report
stated is peak use hours for lots.e
"THE HOUR studied is the period the
highest use and not the average
vacancy, nobody should be fooled into
thinking we're getting that revenue all
the time," Morris said.
Belcher and Councilman Louis

Senunas (R-Third Ward) both called
upon the Democrats to give the struc-
ture bipartisan support in vew of the
parking situations downtown. They
based their plea on the concern for the
health of the downtown business en-
vironment, which Belcher said has
been steadily improving over the last
few years.
Councilman Earl Greene (D-Second.
Ward) directed his questioning to
Murray and the burden this project
would place on the debt status of the
city. The debt service expenditures
decreases annually, and Murrary said
the increased revenue gained from the
structure should make up for the in-
creased burden provided that the
yearly cost is near 30 per cent of the
operating revenue.

i i may/

Both Councilmembers Susan Green-
berg (D-First Ward) and Greene asked
Murray if there would be a peak point of
debt cost which would make the project
prohibitively expensive at the outset.
Murray said the decreasing debt cost
and increasing revenues should bal-
ance the burden. Greene asked Murray
if the debt cost of the project rules out
the Main-Packard proposed senior
citizens housing and parking projects.
Murray said the Main parking struc-
ture cost per space were estimted at
$8,000 per space, and in his opinion the
cost is "exorbitant" and he would not
endorse it.
However, Belcher-in a stinging
attack on Morris and the Democratic
caucus-said he will fullfill his promise
to carry out the Main Street project.

waste of valuable class time), and that
exam days fall too close to Christmas
Also, irregularities in the number o
Monday classes in relation to Tuesday
classes was cited as another cause for
drafting a new calendar.
The proposals were merely a
suggested means of alleviating dif-
ficulties and were brought before the
faculty to gauge their support of either
THIS SUMMER, Professor Jones
was appointed by the Senate Advisory
Committee on University Affairs
(SACUA) as one-man task force to
come up with an alternative calendar.
In essence, his proposal would
regularize the number of days in the
Fall and Winter terms, (to 67 and 69.

respectively) thereby alleviating any
t problems caused by the irregularity of
the calendar. Although Jones' proposal
would mean an average of one more
class day in the Fall term, it would also
necessitate the starting of classes on
the Tuesday after Labor Day, and the
elimination of one study day.
His proposal would also call for en-
ding the final exams earlier than in the
present calendar.
Ernest Zimmerman, Chairman of the
Academic Calendar Committee has
come up with an alternative proposa]
which would call for increasing the
number of class days to the maximumri
allowed by the calendar. Although this
plan does not regularize the number of
' class days in a term, it does lend itself
to a higher average number of days in
each semester. Therefore, the number
of class days in the Fall term would
range from 66 to 71 days over the next
eight years. His measure would also
necessitate the start of classes on the
Tuesday after Labor Day, but would in-
clude all three study days.
FACULTY MEMBERS were not en-
thusiastic about either measure and
complaints were registered for a
variety of reasons. Many felt that star-
ting classes right after Labor- Day
would only serve to bring about a huge
rate of absenteeism among the student

body for that week. Others argued tha
f this would mean that orientation an
I lecture preparation would have to star
before Labor Day, - a condition whic
students, teachirg assistants a
professors might find unpopular.
Several professors expressed con-
cern over the legalities involved witly
teaching assistants' contracts. Sinc
these contracts start on September 1o
the academic year, they feld a change
in the calendar might jeopardize th(
training and orientation period whic
Inormally would take place in the begin~
ning of September.
Dean Billy Frye called for an infor
mal vote on the two proposals, ang
although- most faculty members
favored Prof. Jones' plan over that o
Prof. Zimmerman, the overwhelmin
majority were satisfied with th
present calendar.
Many felt that the gains of the new
proposals were so negligible that fur
ther time should not be waste
discussing the matter. Most of the
faculty members however, agreed that
having the Thursday after Labor Day
as the first day of classes in the Fall
term was an acceptable partial com-
promise to the problem.
The faculty also discussed th
progress -of the English Compositio
Program which has made changes i
the writing requirements for freshman
and transfer students. English
professor Danial Fader made a report
to the faculty which indicated that a
great number of freshpersons will be
required to take a writing workshop to
improve their writing skills.
