The goal of every artist is to have his
or her art seen and appreciated by as
many people as possible. In keeping
with that goal, as well as University
tradition, students in their final
semester in the School of Art are taking
turns filling the Raekham and Slusser
galleries with their best works in a
variety of artistic areas as part of the
Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree
shows.
In most cases, the BFA show affords
students their first opportunity to show
their work. This week at Slusser
Gallery in the Art School,' six artists
have on display works in photography,
painting, weaving, jewelry,
metaismithing, drawing, and wood-
working. At Rackham, four students
are presenting exhibits in fabric and
paper sculpture.

L

THE PURPOSE of the senior
exhibition, according to graphic art
student Linda Alvira, is to give the
student a chance to display works from
a major field, and to show the "cream"
of three to four years of work in several
different areas. Alvira has represen-
tatives of her efforts in photography,
watercolor, drawing, and jewelry, in
addition to her graphics on display at
Slusser.
"We concentrate in one area, but
have to go through various studio
classes," explained Leslie Baum, a
fabric major. "The shows are usually a
real mixture."
Although prices are not posted on
displayed items, most artistsdare
willing to sell their work. Artists may
be contacted through the artist on duty
at Rackham, or located through the Art
School.

ART STUDENTS are not required to
take part in a BFA show, but, according
to sculptor Sarah Kass, there are
usually at least four shows each
semester. "Galleries are reserved
early," she said. "There's almost
always something going on at Slusser."
The BFA show currently in Slusser
Gallery will close Friday. The gallery
will reopen Monday, Dec. 9 with a new
exhibit. The Rackham exhibition will
continue through Dec. 14.
Slusser Gallery, located at the east
end of the Art School, is open Monday
through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.,
and Saturday from 9 to noon. Rackham
Gallery, in the Rackham Building, is
open weekdays from 1-5 p.m.
BFA shows as well as Master of Fine
Arts (MFA) degree shows will continue
to be held throughout the winter term.

The LSA-Student Government (LSA-
SG), in its final meeting of the term
yesterday, approved a proposal
outlining the formation of three new
student action groups and tabled a con-
troversial resolution supporting
University divestment in South Africa.
LSA-SG President Dan Solomon's
successful proposal will create three
student groups which will provide LSA-
SG with student input and opinion on
such issues as tenure, minimum
proficiency requirements of graduate
teaching assistants, and affirmative
action. Solomon emphasized that any
students interested in working on any of
the three groups are encouraged to sign
up in the LSA-SG office in the Michigan
Union.
THE GROUPS - the Curriculum Ac-
tion Group, the Affirmative Action
Committee, and the Administrative
Issues Group - will be organized as
soon as classes begin for the. winter
term in January.
The Curriculum Action Group will b
primarily concerned with researching
and reporting back to LSA-SG on such
issues as alternatives to distribution
requirements, especially those concer-

not damage the University's athletic
program.
"Thisorder won't put us out of
business," he said. Canham has just
returned from a conference of Big Ten
athletic directors, and he said Title IX
was a topic of discussion. He said the
directors were worried "about having
to spend equal amounts for women's
and men's teams."
However, Monday's ruling wiped out
that worry, saying colleges and univer-
sities will not have to make expen-
ditures proportionally among women's
and men's intercollegiate, club, and in-
tramural sports, but must only assure
tha t athletic benefits and oppor-
tunities must be distributed equitably.
CANHAM E XPLAINED that more
money is spent on men's than on
women's teams at the University
because the men's squads are larger
and the Equipment costs higher than for
female teams.
"We treat all our male and female
athletes equally," Canham added,
saying that he intends to comply with
the ruling.
Ocker said her department was
receiving adequate funds now and that
she does not expect the ruling to
dncrease her budget significantly.
Policing of the new policy may not
begin for a few months because the
newly-created Department of
Education is still getting organized,
Blamphin said. He said regional civil
rights boards will select schools to be
investigated based on chances of
having compliance problems.
"If, for example, a school's men's
teams have winning records and its
women's teams .have losing records,
that school stands a good chance of bein
investigated," Blamphin said.

ning foreign language and math, and
reviewing the proficiency and possible
training programs for graduate
teaching assistants.
The Affirmative Action Committee
will deal with issues including minority
recruitment and admissions practices,
minority student services, high
minority attrition rates and the com-
parably low numbers of women and
minority faculty.
THE ADMINISTRATIVE Issues
Group will concentrate on the issues of
tenure, counseling and promoting
student involvement on administrative
committees.
All the action groups will be backed
by LSA-SG and will be responsible for
reporting group findings and suggested
resolutions to the council. The degree of
autonomy that the groups will even-
tually enjoy was debated at length and
was eventually tabled until LSA-SG's
next meeting on January 16, 1980.
Council member Beth Lori's
proposed resolution advocating
statewide public divestment in South
Africa was also tabled after extensive
debate because council members could
not agree on the relevancy of the issue
to LSA-SG.

EDUCA TION, JOB TRAINING PR OPOSED:
Carter plans aid for poor teens

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Carter
administration is proposing a major
education and job-training program
designed to help one million poor teen-
agers avoid the prospect of long-term
unemployment.
Administration officials said yester-
day they are seeking $800 million in
President Carter's upcoming 1981
budget to start the program, which they
expect will cost $2 billion a year when it
becomes fully operational around 1983.
THE OFFICIALS, who asked not to
be named, said Carter is pommitted to

the program in his new budget, to be"
unveiled in January. But details will not
be worked out fully for about one week.
The program would target substan-
tial federal aid for the first time on
economically disadvantaged youth of
junior and senior high school age -
those in school as well as dropouts, the
officials said.
Some money would go directly to
eligible school districts to supplement
educational programs for the
predominantly urban, minority youth.
Other funds would be channeled

ACCORDING TO administration
estimates, the program would reach up
to one million young people in school
and several hundred thousand dropouts
and high school graduates.
Currently, the government has a
Head Start program, which helps poor
elementary school children. It also has
programs that help young people past
school age. But little money has been
directed at the age group in between,
said a White House official.
ACCORDING TO Labor Department
figures, one in three minority teen-
agers is unemployed.
The program likely will be the only
major domestic initiative in Carter's
budget for fiscal 1981, which begins
next Oct. 1.
The president's budget managers are
trying to keep a tight rein on new spen-
ding as part of Carter's anti-inflation
strategy. As a result, most federal
agencies are being urged to trim back
existing programs or to keep them at
current levels.
OFFICIALS AT the Labor Depar-
tment, which would administer the
youthtprogram with the new Education
Department, saidthey are hoping Car-
ter will not order a cut in other jobs
programs to offset the added cost of the
new program. The officials expressed
particular concern that they may be
forced to cut back on the number of
CETA public service jobs that will be
available in 1981.
