Angry C
By MARK PARRENT

AdooI -'

When Viewpoint Lecture officials agreed to provide Tom
Hayden and Jane Fonda with transportation from Southfield
to Ann Arbor Monday night for their speech at Hill
Auditorium, they decided to send a staffer who had access to
a Cadillac.
But riding in a luxury car would "hurt the image" of the
millionaire husband and wife team, Viewpoint Lectures
Chairperson Steve Gools said he was told, so he sent a
Volkswagen instead.
The Volkswagen wasn't quite right either, so the two ac-
tivists rode in their own car to the lecture.
THAT WAS ONLY one in a series of headaches Hayden
and Fonda gave Viewpoint staffers, Gools said yesterday.
The student-run University Activities Center.
(UAC)-Viewpoint's parent organization-is so angry with
the couple it's considering withholding some. of the $5,000
honoraium originally promised to their agents.
"We have never had such difficulties with speakers in the
history of Viewpoint Lectures," Gools said, despite the fact
that Fonda and Hayden "came out looking like a rose."

wUmay cI
GOOLS AND UAC Public Relations Vice-President'
Patrick Day said that ever since UAC began negotiations for
the lecture last May, the affair had been plagued with
"misrepresentations" and broken verbal agreements..
"It became clear that Fonda and Hayden were only in-
terested in raising the money," Gools said.
Fonda and Hayden lectured in Ann Arbor Monday night as
a part of their 50-city, 35-day tour of the eastern portion of the
nation. More than 4,000 spectators who paid $2 each jammed
Hill Auditorium for the two-hour event. Even standing room
tickets were sold.
LISTING WHAT they called justifications for the possible
honorarium reduction, Gools and Day said:
Fonda and Hayden arrived some 45 minutes late for the
lecture, causing obvious irritation in the audience and post-
poning a news conference. "They didn't even apologize for
being 45 minutes late, which I think is outrageous," Day
said;
* Organizers for the California-based Campaign for
Economic Democracy "gave the impression that it (the
visit) would entail much more than the lecture. A lot of the
program that we had planned had to be curtailed";

I

t Hayden
* What was contracted as a lecture turned in a "political
,rally";
" Fonda and Hayden initially appeared ill-prepared for
the lecture and Fonda only spoke for 15 minutes;
" Fonda and Hayden advance people were "curt, deman-
ding, and unresponsive to our needs";
* An electronic "bomb-sweep" of both Hill Auditorium
and Alice Lloyd Resid~nce Hall (where a post-lecture recep-
tion was held) were demanded at the last minute, and;
* Advance persons continually changed their
requirements for both a scheduled press conference and
reception.
DAY SAID THAT aside from the late arrival of the couple,
it would be difficult to prove specific violations of the con-
tract because he said most of the difficulties arose from
"verbalagreements."
But the tour's national coordinator, contacted late last
night at Illinois State University in Normal, Illinois, termed
the UAC complaints "childish, silly, and petty."
"There are always little hitches and logistical problems,"
said Stephen Rivers, who has travelled with the Hayden-
Fonda tour since it began last month.

talk fee
"I'M SORRY THEY had misconceptions, Rivers said.
But "there's no such thing as an impression. We have a legal
contract."
Rivers said the "bottom line" in judging such an event
should be the'reaction of the students. "I've never seen that
level of energy, enthusiasm, and excitement," Rivers said of
the Hill Auditorium crowd.
Stephens said he regretted the late arrival of Fonda and
Hayden, but he said the couple made up for their tardiness by
staying on stage even longer than usual. He also said the ad-
vance group required the bomb search because of threats
received at other tour stops only days earlier.
ALAN WALKER, president of Programs Corp. of
America-Fonda and Hayden's booking agency-said his
company would probably resort to legal means if UAC did not
pay the contracted honorarium.
"Many times people want more than the contract
(specifies)," Walker said by telephone from Hartsdale, N.Y.,
last night.

Crowd
rallies,
marehes
against
rape
By MARION HALBERG
Last night the usually deserted Liber-
ty Street between Fourth and Fifth
Streets was crowded with more than 300
people, most of them women, demon-
strating their anger at rape.
At the Federal Building, one of the
more dangerous areas in Ann Arbor for
women, they marched and. spoke of
"taking back the night" from sexual
assailants.
"Take Back the Night" was a rally
sponsored by Women in Action, a
University group comprised of students
and area residents, which succeeded in
arousing the crowd against the problem
of rape.
"The streets are becoming a battle
ground," said speaker Bette Skandalis,
an instructor in the Women's Studies
Department. None of us is safe. I want
to take back the night as a way of taking
back some of our power. Rape is a
crime of domination, it is not a crime of
sex."
Amy Coha of the Women's Crisis Cen-
ter addressed the crowd on the
'legalities of rape and the Michigan rape
law of 1975 which states that both men
and women can be raped and that the
degree of the sexual assault is deter-
mined by how much violence is in-
curred.

FACULTY ASKS FOR116% INCREASE:

Regents discuss. salaries

From UPI, AP, and Reuter
WASHINGTON - The Carter ad-
ministration took the first step yester-
day to try to overturn a court ruling
that has thrown future U.S.-Chinese
relations into limbo.
The Justice Department told the
Court of Appeals in a one-sentence
notice that }t would appeal a lower
court ruling'made late Wednesday
night that President Carter acted im-
properly last December in ending the
1954 Mutual Defense Treaty with
Taiwan as part of, the agreement to
normalize relations with China.
ATTORNEY GENERAL Benjamin
Civiletti said the Justice Department
would appeal U.S. District Judge Oliver
Gasch's ruling "as expeditiously as
possible" to the appeals court, a depar-
tment spokesman said.
There was no indication that the ad-
ministration would seek approval for
Carter's action from Congress unless it
loses the suit in higher courts.
If the Taiwan treaty were reinstated,
it could pose major implications for
future U.S. relations with the People's
Republic of China.
SOME ADMINISTRATION officials
fear that if the Taiwan treaty is con-
tinued, Peking will close its Washington
embassy.
But Barry Goldwater (R-Ariz.), who
made the suit with 25 other conser-
vative Congress members, opposes cut-
ting off ties with America's longtime
Asian ally. He said he was elated at the
ruling - which he said stops the ad-
ministration from breaking the law.

By JULIE ENGEBRECHT
The Regents discussed faculty
salaries and toured the Flint campus
yesterday, making for a relatively
uneventful beginning to their October
meeting.
During a morning session in the Ad-
ministration Building in Ann Arbor, the
eight-member governing board heard

comments on a report from Harvey
Brazer, an economics professor and
chairman of the Committee on the
Economic Status of the Faculty
(CESF). The faculty group is asking
the Regents to make provisions in the
University's budget request to the state
for a 16 per cent salary hike.
TODAY, THE Regents will be asked
to authorize a $30.4 million request for
state funds in the 1980-81 fiscal year.
The state requires the request by Nov.
1.
The executive officers are recom-
mending an 11 per cent salary increase
because they feel a 16 per cent hike is

too much to ask from the state. The dif-
ference between the faculty and ad-
ministrative recommendations is about
$3 million.
The faculty, Regents and executive
officers all agreed that the faculty
deserves such an increae. The conflict,
however, is over the figure to present to
the state legislature.
"I DON'T TIINK the (16 per cent)
figure is too high relative to the needs of
the 'faculty," Brazer said. "The
question is of strategy in approaching
the governor and legislature."
His committee's view is that the

"It is the first time in this nation's
almost 200 years of constitutional
history that a federal judge has ruled
directly on the power of treaty te-
mination and it means that no
American, not even the president, can
break the law of the land," Goldwater
said.
STATE DEPARTMENT officials who
asked not to be identified, said the ad-
ministration is confident there will be
no interruption in relations between
China and the U.S. The officials said
they are still assessing the impact of
the decision in which Gasch declared
that Carter needed the okay from two-
thirds of the Senate or a majority vote
in both houses to end the defense treaty.

literature

STOCKHOLM - Greek poet
Odysseus Elytis, best known for his
vivid lyrics about the islands and
waters of the Aegean Sea, was yester
day named winner of the 1979 Nobel
Prize for Literature.
The 68-year-old Elytis, little known
outside the Greek language, edged out a
half-dozen internationally acclaimed
writers who had been highly touted
favorites for the prestigious honor.
THlE LITERATURE prize, awarded
by the Swedish Royal Academy of Let-
ters, was the last of the six 1979 Nobels
to be awarded. Each is worth $190,000.
Five of the 10 laureates are Americans;
including four of seven science prize-
winners. The awards ceremony will be
conducted Dec. 10 in Stockholm.
Elytis - a. pen name for Odysseus
Alepoudhelis - is the second Greek to
win the Nobel for literature. Giorgos
Seferis, a fellow poet in the surrealist
influenced Greek school of the 1930s,
was the laureate in1963.
He won the award "for his poetry,
which against the background of Greek
tradition, depicts 'with sensuous
strength and intellectual clearsighted-
ness modern man's struggle for

Anti-nuke rally to-be
peaceful, leader says

LANSING (UPI)-Anti-nuclear
activists strove yesterday to refute
reports that civil disobedience is plan-
ned at their upcoming demonstration,
fearing it could cut attendance at the
event they hope will draw 10,000 to the
capital.-
The demonstration, set for Sunday on
the Capitol grounds, is designed to
bring pressure -on the legislature and
state government to shut down
Michigan's three operating nuclear
plants and ban construction of new
ones. It also is aimed at getting nuclear
weapons facilities out of the state.
THE "MARCH for a Non-Nuclear
Michigan" will be the largest anti-atom
protest yet -in Michigan if it makes
organizers' expectations.
The event is being planned by the
"Oct. 21 Coalition"-a collection of about
30 anti-nuclear, environmental and
labor organizations including many
which were involved in last spring's

march on the Consumers Power Co.
Midland plant which drew about 5,000.
"There will be no acts of civil
disobedience at the demonstration con-

Feds offer Michigamua options
to University administrators

By TOM MIRGA
The federal government has told
University officials how it would like to
see them alter the University's
relationship with the all-male Tribe of
Michigamua to meet Title IX guidelines
which prohibit discrimination on the
basis of sex.
"In essence," said Vice President for
Student Services Henry Johnson,
"HEW (Health, Education and
Welfare) has offered the University
several options. One is that
Michigamua agree to become a co-ed
organization. The other option is that
the group remains as is but that the
University withdraw any and all sup-

port from them."~
ASSISTANT Vice-President for
Student Services Thomas Easthope
said it was unclear whether HEW was
requesting that the University evict
Michigamua from its traditional
meeting site in the Michigan Union.
"But by the wording of the conciliatory
agreement," he continued, "one would
be led to believe that's the case."
Last month the federal agency found
the University in violation of Title IX of
the Education Amendments Act of 1972
for providing "substantial assistance"
to the secret, all-male society for
University seniors. Title IX prohibits
recipients of federal assistance from

discriminating on the basis of sex.
The University's position in the com-
plaint, which was initiated in Septem-
ber 1976, has been that the question of
Michigamua's receiving significant
assistance from the University is open,
seeing that the only aid the society now
receives is a rent-free room in the
Union.
JOHNSON ALSO said the proposals
from HEW, which were received in his
office earlier this week, discounted the
possibility of Michigamua paying the
University rent for use of the room.
"The University has not decided on
how it will respond to these offers," he
