Graduate, UGLI theft reports increase

being stolen. The thieves take the
wallets, according to Heatley, remove
the money but leave the identification,
then dump the wallet. "All they take is
cash," he said.
Barbara Hoppe, secretary to the
director of the UGLI, said the same
thing happens there. "People just leave
them (bookbags) for a second," and
they disappear. "People aren't wat-
ching their bags," she added. Hoppe
added that larcenies appear to occur in
waves at the library.

"All of a sudden, people just started
coming up to the desks and reporting
thefts," Hoppe said.
According to Safety Department
records, 10 thefts have been reported
since the beginning of this school year
at the UGLI, compared with 12 during
the same period last year. But there
have been four larcenies reported in the
last three days.
"People don't read signs and then
they complain to us that their wallets
were stolen," complained one clerk at
the main floor circulation desk.
UGLI officials apparently are alar-
med enough to have posted about 22
signs throughout the building two
weeks ago, warning, "BEWARE,
thieves at work, Watch your purse,
books, and backpack." The circulation
desk clerk said the signs were posted
last term as well.
Several students said that because of
the signs and a simple fear of being rip-
ped off, they have taken extra
precautions with their bookbags and
valuables in both libraries.

Steve Holden, a senior in the College.
of Engineering, said before the war-
nings his group of three would just
leave their coats and books on the
second floor table. Now, "someone
stays with the books," he said.
LSA sophomore Gregg Thomas said
as a result of the sign, "We take our
wallets with us now. We used to leave
our stuff (wallets and calculators) un-
der the papers."
Carlos Teran, a junior in the School of.
Business Administration said simply,
"I don't leave it (his bookbag) alone."
Engineering senior Tom Oakes said
the sign's message has not affected him
much. "I'd be one in a multitude that
would be victimized and sees being rip-
ped off as practically inevitable.
MIke Iver, an LSA sophomore who
studies in the Graduate Library, said he
used to leave his books in his carrel for
hours without worrying about them.
But now, he says he takes his books
with him when he leaves. "I watch my
friend's books too when he's gone,"

Iver explained.
None of these students said they have
ever been ripped off.
To help remedy the situation,
Heatley recommends simply that
students "be aware of the people
prowling around up there and report
them. All we ask is that they (students)
pay a little more attention to where
they leave thei personal property."
Heatley said his department is trying
to help by "keeping up our patrols over
there (in the library area.)"
Stevens said they suspect the thieves
are not college students because they
have not been arrested in the past for
such crimes. "It's mainly people who
have no business being there," he
Stevens added that a pair of safety of-
ficers confronted two persons just after
4 p.m. Wednesday in the Graduate
Library who, when asked to show their
student identification cards, ran out of
the building.

Tenure not a pressing issue
on other university campuses

"It's the kind of thing where ad-
ministrators say, 'good idea, students
ought to have a say' but when it gets
right down to the nitty gritty, nothing

a group of other students at IUPUI are
trying to get students on tenure review

creased student voice in tenure is one to
which students must be more exposed.
"If you tell them that this affects the
kind of profs they get, they're concer-
ned," Kurland said.
AAUP officials estimate that very
few schools currently allow students on
tenure selection committees. A more
likely source of input is student
evaluations of professors. Even so,
however, the AAUP estimates that less
than half the colleges around the coun-
try use such evaluations, and most of
them do so on a voluntary basis. At
some of the schools, like UCLA,
booklets are published by the student
government.of the school itself, which
give students easy access to these

evaluations constitute "An essential
part of the tenure-granting process.
Students provide a lot of information
with the evaluations."

judgments is somewhat more visible.
The level of women and minorities in
tenured positions across the country
seems to get a lot of attention from both
administrators and faculty, though
schools vary greatly in whether they
should make conscious efforts to raise
the percentages of women and
minorities among their tenured faculty.

faculty around the country, AAUP's
Kurland says there's "considerable
progress on both fronts," He added that
of the two groups, women seem to be
faring better than minorities because
"they have more opportunities now."'
IUPUI's Moore says "There's no dif-
ference made between women and
men, or minorities and whites" athis
school. In contrast, however, UCLA's
Kurland says professors often admit to
taking sex and ethnic background into

it's something to look at. I wouldn't say
we always ignore it," said a professor

decisions around the country is a
propensity on the part of professors to
sue their respective university after
being denied tenure. While such cases
are still rarities.
