University Prof. Wilbur Cohen has
been soliciting funds for Senator Ed-
ward Kennedy's presidential campaign
and may oversee those fund-raising ef-
forts statewide, according to Second
Congressional District Democrat
Gerald Faye.
Former Second District Democratic
Party, Chairman George Sallade and
City Council member Earl Greene (D-
Second Ward), said Cohen had called
them earlier this week about raising
funds for Kennedy.
COHtEN, A former Secretary of
Health, Education, and Welfare under
former President Lyndon Johnson, and
former dean of the University's School
of Education, began raising funds and
organizing supporters Monday, accor-
ding to Gerald Faye, a second district
Democrat contacted by Cohen earlier
this week.
FAYE, ONE of a number of people
Cohen called to muster support for

Kennedy, said yesterday, "he (Cohen)
was asked to raise funds for the senator
and to my knowledge he was awfully
successful" this week.
Faye said that Cohen would direct
fund-raising efforts for Kennedy
statewide.
According to Faye, Cohen's fund-
raising effort began the same day Ken-
nedy's brother-in-law, Stephen Smith,
announced the formation of a national

campaign committee in Washington.
COHEN YESTERDAY refused to
comment on his fund-raising efforts for
Kennedy.
Faye and others met earlier this
week to discuss fund-raising but "we
decided very clearly not to make any
organization," he said, because the
group wanted to keep itself open to

CONCERNED WITH 'NON-SPONSORED' STUDIES:
Panel to review publicizing 'U' research

By ALISON HIRSCHEL
Heard about that recent University study? Neither
have most people here.
Because of that fact, a new University committee
has been formed to investigate methods to help
publicize the scholarly endeavors of faculty members.
The group is particularly interested in recent
allegations made by two faculty advisory committees
that non-sponsored research conducted at the Univer-
sity is not receiving the recognition it deserves.
ATTENTION IS OFTEN paid to sponsored resear-
ch-studies funded by sources outside the Univer-
sity-according to John Eadie, professor of history and
humanities and chairman of the informal and un-
named five-member group. But it is more difficult to
assess the amount of work done by non-sponsored
researchers-those who do not receive outside fun-
ding-Eadie said...
In addition, It is more likely tht 'outside sponsors
will fund an engineering or science study than one in
the humanities, Eadie said.
Both the Senate Assembly Committee on Academic
Affairs (SAC AAM report, released in June, and a recent
resolution of the faculty's Research Policy Committee
(RPC) indicated the need for greater public awareness
of all research work done at the University. But Eadie
explained that the group will place special emphasis on

the problems faced by non-sponsored researchers.
"WE (THE COMITTEE) have a greater concern
with people not normally considered when research is
credited, when the dollars are toted up," Eadie said.
But at least one member of the committee sees its
goal as more than merely an effort to give a fair share
to professors involved in non-sponsored research. N.
Harris McClamroch, a professor in the College of
Engineering, hopes to "make faculty research and
scholarly activity more well-known, not just to the
public, but to other professors at the University."
McClamroch said he would like to see more publicity
for faculty achievements such as Fulbright and
Guggenheim scholarships and specific research
projects in which professors are involved.
ACCORDING TO McClamroch, this information has
not been previously amassed and relased partly
because there is no central group which collects it.
"The University probably does receive notification
of faculty members receiving Fulbright Scholar-
ships," McClamroch said, "but that letter probably gets
tossed out before anyone finds out."
The committee has not yet made any formal recom-
mendations on how to gather, and publicize its infor-
mation. "I'd rather not make any comment on sub-
stantive proposals. Right now we're trying to deter-
mine to what extend faculty members have not been

given sufficient recognition," one member said.
ANOTHER COMMITTi~E member, Elaine Zim-
merman, of the University's division of Research
Development and Administration, said the group's
results might be published. She also said there are
several University publications which regularly report
on sponsored research projects and might now include
information on other research work.
If diverse scholarly efforts were reported in this
way, Zimmerman said that the committee's goal of
"fair-minded treatment of research as research"
would be achieved.
The SACAA report concluded that research at the
University is plagued by problems more significant
than the discrepancy in the treatment of sponsored and
non-sponsored research. The report states that morale
is low among researchers on campus and that many
faculty members have become disillusioned with
research conditions, here.
The report also contends that many of tloe Univer-
sity's researchers are leaving for more profitable or
satifying jobs at other universities and in the private
sector.
According to McClamroch, this problem will not be
alleviated by greater recognition of faculty
achievements. "It's not a matter of being recognized
or patted on the back," he said. "We're just trying to
have the University put its best face forward."

From UPI and AP
The nation's unemployment rate in-
creased to six per cent in October with
blacks and women hit hardest by job
losses, the Labor Department reported
yesterday.
But the Labor Department said there
were conflicting signs on whether the
slight overall unemployment increase
to six per cent from 5.8 per cent in Sep-
tember is a signal that a much-
discussed recession is taking hold.
UNEMPLOYMENT has bounced in a
narrow range between 5.6 per cent and
six per cent for the past 14 months.
The Labor Department said the num-
ber of unemployed persons increased
by, nearly 200,000 to 6.2 million in Oc-
tober.
Michigan's unemployment rate held
steady at 7.2 per cent in October, 1.2 per
cent .above the national average, the
Michigan Employment Security Com-
mission (MESC) reported yesterday.
MESC DIRECTOR S. Martin Taylor
said sluggish auto sales prevented the
normal seasonal drop in unemployment
from taking place last month.
Taylor said unemployment-across the
state rose by 5,000 in October to 315,000.
However, the jobless increase was of-
fset by a growth in employment of
11,000, which meant ,there were
4,028,000 people working in Michigan.
The October rate was substantially
above the year-ago level when the
unemployment rate stood at 5.5 per
cent with 230,000 persons out of work.

NATIONALLY, most of the increase
in unemployment occurred among
people who lost their jobs rather thin$
those newly entering the labor market;
and most of the increase was among$
adult women and blacks - traditionally,
the "last hired" and "first fired" when,
the economy slows down.
Unemployment among adult women
was 5.8 per cent in October, up from, 5.5
per cent the previous month. It in-
creased from 10.6 per cent to 11.7 per
cent among blacks.
Anticipating a, recession in they
economy, the Carter administration
has been forecasting a rise in unem-
ployment to about seven per cent next;
year. However, the recession has been;
slow to develop.

action, on-
Chrysler
loan
From Reuter and UP[
The Senate Banking Committee
agreed yesterday to speed up action on,
the administration's proposed $1.5.
billion loan guarantee for Chrysler even
though the committee's chairman, Sen.
William Proxm ire (D-Wis.), called it
"a massive giveaway"~ and said
Congress must cut the loan down.
Proxmire, originally scheduled
hearings on Nov. 19, but, yesterdayy
pushed them forward nearly a week to
Nov. 14, following intercession of Sen.
Donald Riegle (D-Mich.).
RIEGLE SAID the new schedule calls
for the beginning of drafting a bill on
Nov. 26.
A House banking subcommittee was
expected to call administration wit-
nesses next week, then proceed im-
mediately to preparing the bill's
language.
Proxmire, who opposes federal
financial aid to private firms, issued a
statement making clear the loan
guarantee package announced yester-
day by the administration will get
rough handling when it comes before
his committee.
PROXMIRE CALLED the proposal
"a massive giveaway for the taxpayers
and a massive windfall to the banks,
stockholders and others who have the
main stake in the Chrysler bailout."
The Senator, in any case, has said he
lacks the voting support to kill a
