Watching over '

£,~ By R. J.SMITH
On the second floor of her dormitory, a
,tudent is taking a shower. A man enters sud-
-4pnly, and attacks her. Her screams bring
fpgeople out into the hall outside the bathroom.
They call University security.
j -,There is fortune and misfortune in this.
BY THE TIME the guard downstairs enters
Sbe hallway, the attacker has left the room.
eing bigger than the unarmed guard, the
-assailant pushes him out of the way and runs
'jwnstairs out of the building. Legally, the
"guard is powerless to stop the man.

That is perhaps the central problem withsthe
University's Department of Safety - its most
visible agent, the contracted building guard, is
nothing more than a professional door rattler,
walking through buildings late at night, ready
to call for help should anything occur.
"You could pick any college you want -
MSU, Central Michigan, Ohio State - and all of
them have a regular campus police force,"
says Fred Davids, who heads the Department
of Safety. The fact that the University doesn't
have a force is a problem Davids has to work
with every day.

WF

THlE DEPARTMENT of Safety is an
aggregate of several crime prevention
organizations, each with different powers and
duties. Involved with the department are the
Ann Arbor police, University safety officers
and building guards contracted from private
protection agencies.
There are generally around 50 guards on con-
tract with the University. They are employed
essentially to stalk University buildings, spot
fires, alert the police to intruders and other-
wise protect the University's investment in
buildings.

HOWEVER, the contracted guards are often
called on to solve many sudden problems, and
cope well in dangerous incidents. That is when'
the lack of a University police force is felt.
WITHIN University buildings, it is the con-
tracted guard who makes initial contact with
most crimes that are committed. In 1977, ac-
cording to Department of Safety reports,,
statistics for major crimes were:
* Felonious Assault (assault and robbery)
- 10;
* All other assaults -79;

" Breaking and entering -151;
" Violent Criminal Sexual Conduct -13;
" Bomb Threats/False Fire Alarms - 91;
" Violations of Controlled Substance, Act (in
cluding drug abuses) -21.
Within the past few years, there has been a
general decline in the uccurrence of many of
the major crimes, which peaked onrcampus in
the early 70's. The crimes cited here show an
overall six per cent drop from 1976, with the
greatest drop being in the number of registered
felonious assaults of which there were 37.

By RICHARD BERKE
and ELIZABETH SLOWIK
Among all the many decisions the
University Regents had to make last
year, they were also kept busy appoin-
ting new administrators to the Univer-
sity. Two new deans were chosen along
with a new housing director and library
director.
New School of Education Dean Joan
Stark and Law School Dean Terrence
Sandalow each took on their new
positions July 1. Richard Dougherty,
new University library director, step-
ped into his post officially on August 1.
IN JULY, THE Regents approved a
recommendation by Vice President for
Student Services Henry Johnson to
select Robert Hughes as University
Housing Director. Hughes had served
as acting housing. director since last
September when former director John
Feldkamp resigned.
Sandalow, who was appointed dean
after serving 12 years on the faculty,
praised the University's law school.
"We already have one of the greatest
law schools in the country," he' said.
"My main goal is to try to keep it that
way,"
But for Sandalow, retaining the law
school's quality does not mean main-
taining the status quo. He said the
faculty will conduct a major
curriculum review.
SANDALOW received both his
bachelor's and law degrees from the
University of Chicago. He served as law
clerk for Judge Sterry Waterjnan of the
U.S. Second District Court of Appeals.
He also served as law clerk for Justice
Potter Stewart of the U.S. Supreme
Court. After private practice in
Chicago, Sandalow taught at the

University of Minnesota and then
joined the University faculty.
Sandalow sees budget problems as
one of the major obstacles to higher
education today. "All of higher
education, particularly universities in
Michigan, are feeling the financial pin-
ch," said Sandalow.
He added that a tight budget affects
the law school's ability to retain
faculty, attract new faculty,- and in-
stitute experimental programs.
DOUGHERTY, presently director of
libraries of the University of California
at Berkeley, is "a vigorous man," ac-
cording to University assistant director
of libraries, Jane Flener. Flener
worked with Dougherty at Berkley for
three years.
"He is approachable, easy to talk
with. He's a great 'idea' man. He'thinks
of things to do to provide services for
the University and for persons in
general. He's energetic," concluded
Flener.
Stark joined the University faculty
after four years as associate professor
and chairman of the Department of

Higher/Postsecondary Education at
Syracuse University in New York. She
was first assistant dean, then associate
dean of Goucher College in Baltimore.
CAREER PLANNING and
Placement Director Evart Ardis, who
headed the search committee for
Feldkamp's successor, said Hughes'
familiarity with the University housing
operation was a mark in his favor.
Hughes' selection for housing direc-
tor comes at a time when the University
housing operation - one of the largest
in the country - is facing probably the
most acute space shortagehin its
history. Unlike Feldkamp, who 'once
issued a report questioning the
feasibility of added housing, Hughes
said the need exists and is the "most
pressing" issue facing him.
"We've projected the need for ad-
ditional housing since the last dorm was
built in 1968, but our plans have never
been brought to fruition," he said, ad-
ding that the University has never been
able to afford any of the proposed
housing plans.
Presently a search is being conducted

Hughes
to replace retiring Business Ad-
ministration School Dean Floyd Bond.
Search committee head Paul Mc-
Cracken said in July, "I would hope'
that this issue would be concluded in the
next few weeks. We've had several
candidates but I can't reveal identities
at this time.

professor, whose name was deleted by
the CIA, asks Ford if, despite budget
cuts at the agency, "you are still in-
terested in forthcoming graduates, and
if so in what categories."
The letter continues: "I could not fill
another agency's request for a woman
(preferably) who could read Chinese
,and handle military analysis, both per-
sonnel and strategic, this fall, so I am
not pushing people out willy nilly."
A return letter from Ford or any
other agency personnel specifically
responding to the professor's inquiry
was not included .IiV. the' doc~uments'
released by the CIA.
IN THE documents released by the
CIA, the agency used several exem-
ptions under the FOIA to censor all
names and lengthy segments from the
material. This sometimes left pages
with only the name of this University
intact.
Besides covert recruiting, the CIA
uses its several hundred campus con-
tacts around the country to gather in-
formation, write propaganda and spy
on students.
In CIA documents released to the
Campaign to Stop Government Spying,
the agency revealed its project

RESISTANCE - a sixyear program
beginning in 1967. This project used
agency campus contacts to spy on
students during the Anti-Vietnam War
era.
AT ABOUT the same time project
RESISTANCE was getting underway,
the agency took a special interest in the
University's Center for Chinese
Studies. CIA agents came to the
University in the spring of 1966 to in-
vestigate what the agents later repor-
ted as "one of the nation's outstanding
centers for Far Eastern studies."
A._ select group of University,
professors in the China center
developed secret and profitable
relationships-with the CIA.
The CIA, considered by many to be
the world's leading intelligence
organization, helped University
professors with research projects. The
CIA documents show the agency
arranged inteiviews with intelligence
sources, arranged top level seminars
involving agency analysts, government
officials and University professors, and
provided professors with, what one
source called "invaluable" research
materials.
ONE UNIVERSITY professor, who
was contacted by the CIA did not

cooperate, expressed concern about the
agency's influence on academic com-
petition and the genuine search for
truth in the scholarly world.
The professor, who asked not-to be
identified, said those few scholars who
are cooperating with the CIA have an
unfair advantage over those who don't.
And, once privy to such information,
the scholar would think twice about
saying or doing anything which might
stop the flow from the agency.
The released documents also show
that University professors cleared the
mway for CIA agents,, to work at the
University. -On Christmas ve'1968, a
University professor connected with
the China Center wrote a letter to an
Agency employee stating he was "quite
interested" in having a certain agent
join the Center staff for a couple of
years ''as a resource person."
IN 1973, ANOTHER University
professor wrote Ford at the CIA ex
pressing concern for employees who
might lose their jobs due to CIA budget
cuts.
"Would you convey my feelings to
any involved with whom I have had a
personal or professional relationsoip?"
the professor wrote. The professor also
wondered if any of those laid off would
be interested in working at the Univer-
sity. "We haven't much but we might
be able to offer a fellowship or two."
But the CIA had long before. con-
sidered placing employees at the
University. In a 1966 field report, an
agent suggested that rather than
"having the CIA engage in competition
with the universities for the relatively
few products of the-"China centers, it
seems more profitable to use the idle
capacity of such schools as Michigan
for training of agency personnel
already on duty in the CIA."
THE UNIVERSITY faculty has been
slow to adopt guidelines restricting
'relationships between the University
community and intelligence agencies
claiming such limitations would im-
pioge their academic freedom.
On the other hand, Harvard Univer-
sity President Derek Bok told the.
Senate Select Committee on Intelligent
ce Activities last July that he supports
Congressional prohibition of CIA covert
recruitment and other "operational ac-
tivities" on college campuses. He cited
the need for "trust and candor to
promote the freeandopen exchange of
ideas and information essential to
inquiry and learning."
Harvard was the first University
to adopt guidelines with respect to in-
telligence agencies.
In reference to CIA involvement on
this campus, University President
Robben Fleming has said, "I'm not
sensitive on that issue at all." He added
that he believes it is a matter for the
faculty's consideration.
