SACUA: Regents out of touch
with faculty issues, concerns
By ALISON HIRSCHEL
The University Regents do not understand the
role and responsibilities of faculty members on cam-
pus, members of the Senate Advisory Committee on
University Affairs (SACUA) said yesterday. Several
SACUA representatives also expressed dissatisfac-
tion and disappointment with their informal dinner
and annual meeting with the Regents last Thursday.
SACUA selected the topics of faculty salaries,
faculty grievance procedures, and the search for a
vice president of academic affairs for discussion
during their hour-and-a-half long meeting with the
MORTON BROWN, a math professor and SACUA
member said, "I thought the meeting wenty very
poorly. To a large extent, it was just wasting time."
Brown also said he thought the Regents acted con-
descendingly toward the SACUA members.
Regent David Laro (R-Flint), however, said last
night that he felt the salary issue could have resulted
ip more heated discussion, but blames the members of
SACUA for the "bland" meeting. "They went out of
their way to be nice, and they were so nice, they
didn't really say what they meant," he said.
Laro had encouraged the faculty representatives to
be more vocal about their salary demands during the
meeting, reminding them that they would not be able
to maintain their standard of living with the current
rate of inflation. Laro later said he would support
tuition hikes to increase faculty salaries. No SACUA
member, however, approached the Regents with this
ARCH NAYLOR, an engineering professor who
chaired the meeting, said he vi wed the salary
discussion as "a ritual that has to be gone through.''
He mentioned that it has been brought to the Regents'
attention annually for the past three years.
Some SACUA members said they didn't feel the
meetng was useful because few new issues were

An ABC reporter in Tehran said the

Carter:, Iran trial would
break international law
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Army
said yesterday that 427 recruiters have
been fired from their jobs in the worst
recruiting scandal since the end of the
draft six years ago.
Reporting to Congress on a six-month
investigation, officials said an
estimated 12,700 soldiers had been
enlisted , through fraud or other
irregular procedures by recruiters sin-
ce October 1977.
THE ARMY is consulting with the
commanding officers of the improperly
enlisted soldiers to see if they want to
keep them in the service, the officials
told the Senate Armed Services man-
Sen. Sam Nunn (D-Ga.), chairman of
the panel, said the Marines and the
Navy apparently had a worse problem
with recruiting malpractice than the
Army, based on discrepancies in
recruits' test results. Marine and Navy
officials did not take part in yesterday's
About 75 per cent of the Army cases
involved false information about
education records of potential recruits
who had not graduated from high
school, officials testified. Others in-
volved illegal coaching for enlistment
tests and concealment of police recor-
ds, medical problems, and other infor-
BRIG. GEN. Donald Connelly, head
of a 55-member investigative task for-
ce, said there was a greater incidence
of malpractice among seasoned
recruiters than among newer ones.
Three out of four recruiters relieved
from their duties because of the in-
vestigation had received a gold badge
or other award for meeting enlistment
goals, he testified.
"The vast majority - over 90 per
cent - of recruiters are not committing
malpractice," Connelly said.
Sen. Robert Morgan (D-N.C.)
disputed Connelly, saying the
"argument that most recruiters do not
cheat is questionable. The fact is that
many of them do, but the Army has only
been able to catch part of them."
MORGAN SAID recruiters "are
being subjected to such enormous quota
pressures from their superiors and
threats to their career that they must
resort to these tactics or be ruined for
the rest of their Army careers.".
1 The special investigation, which is
continuing, resulted in the removal
from their jobs of 324 recruiters and
supervisors in 41 of the Army's 57
recruiting. commands. Only five of-
ficers were involved.
In addition, 103 recruiters have been
relieved. because of malpractice
discovered in routine checks.
NUNN NOTED the Army's in-
vestigation was being carried out by of-
ficers from the recruiting command.
He questioned whether a self-
examination could "come up with a fin-
ding that the problem is not at the bot-
tom (among enlisted men); it's at the
He said a finding of fault among high-
ranking officers would be "unpreceden-
ted in the annals of military history."
"I am saying someone independent of
the direct chain of command needs to
look at the broader question of pressure
from the top," Nunn added.
ARMY SECRETARY Clifford
Alexander said most recruiters
"respond well to the pressures that are
part of the job."
Alexander acknowledged that the
Army, along with the other services,
failed to meet its recruiting goals last
year. He said the chief problem was
that "we have failed to commit the
resources necessary to make military
service attractive in today's economic
Alexander said he strongly opposed a
return to the draft and said that a $15
monthly pay increase for recruits - as
contained in an amendment that died in
the Senate recently - "may give some
help. I could say that and that alone
would not be enough."
WASHINGTON (AP) - The Carter
administration insisted yesterday that
all remaining American hostages in
Iran "must be released" and warned
that putting any of them on' trial as
spies would violAte international law.
In a statement issued at the White
House and the State Department, the
administration said forcing the
American hostages to stand trial wouild
be a "violation of elementary human
rights" and would heighten "worldwide
outrage" caused by the seizure of the
U.S. Embassy in Tehran.
DESPITE THE tone of the U.S.
statement, administration officials did
not rule out some discussion with Iran
at the United Natiohs or elsewhere,
providing all 62 Americans captured in
the embassy takeover are released.
Some Iranian officials have
suggested they would settle for an in-
ternational tribunal to consider ac-
cusations against the deposed Shah
Mohammad Reza Pahlavi rather than
his extradition from the United States,
which has been demanded by the
students who seized the embassy Nov.
Last week, the United States blocked
U.N. consideration of Iranian claims
against the shah, who is undergoing
cancer treatment in a New York
hospital. But Secretary of State Cyrus
Vance has said that once the hostages
are freed, the united States will not op-
pose debate in the U.N. Security Coun-
"TO THAT extent, there is something
that can flow" from the release of the
hostages, said State Department
spokesman Hodding Carter.
However, spokesman Carter said:

Physics of Music' mixes

By JULIE SELBST
If you're a mathematics major and
play the oboe, Prof. G. Weinreich of the
Physics Department may have just the
course for you.
Even if you don't know how to add
and can't tell an oboe from a bassoon,
you still might be interested in what
Weinreichteaches in a course called
"The Physics of Music." The course,
offered every winter term, is an inquiry
into the physical production of sound by
WHEN THE class was started five
years ago, it was directed primarily at
music students. But since then, it's
reputation has spread with students
from virtually every discipline electing
to take the course.
"We get everybody in here," said
Weinreich. "There are no
prerequisites, and we get people with
all different backgrounds - music
students, engineering students,
graduates, undergraduates, people who
have had only a high school math
background, and physics majors. It's
amazing the different interests we
assembly in one classroom."
The course's subject matter includes
such topics as forces on oscillating
systems, resonance, and the vibrating
string. After these components of sound
have been investigated, the course
focuses on the workings of specific in-
struments - brass, woodwinds, the
violin family, the piano, and high
