Researchers seek improvement

To insure maximum effectiveness
and improvements in the University
research environment, Vice President
for Research Charles Overberger has
asked all faculty members to ex-
cahange views, comment, criticize, and
commend present practices in resear-
The proposed exchange of infor-
mation has been divided into four
HOUSTON (AP) - Toni Frisch, who
kicks field goals and extra points for the
Houston Oilers, was a professional soc-
cer player in his native Austria. He was
schooled in pressure situations before
he came to the United States.
"I played before crowds of 100,000
people in soccer games in Austria,"
Toni said. "When I am called on to kick
a field goal in the National Football
League I have to give it my entire con-

" which demands require the most
attention in creating a favorable
research environment on campus (for
example, released time from academic
assignments, adequate lab space, and
administrative support);
*Whether the University should con-
tinue to increase local control over
University research funds and
discretionary monies;
" Whether a high priority should
continue to be placed on the develop-
ment of interdisciplinary and inter-
departmental programs which may
result in less money for research
equipment, preliminary research, or
interim support of various kinds for in-
dividuals; and
WHAT THE benefits of long-range,
planning are and how the central ad-
ministration can give more help to
departments in planning.
The exchange of views, which was
prompted by several meetings between
Overgerger and the Research Advisory

Council, a faculty group, is being con-
ducted through "The Reporter," a
monthly publication of the Division of
Research Development and Ad-
'(At our usual meetings) we never
seem to have enough time to talk about
general issues which are important to
University research," Overberger ex-
"AS A RESULT of our meetings, we
wrote up a drafted document which
poses the questions and problems."
Overberger said the research
questions are aimed at communication
between all faculty members.
Dr. George DeMuth, associate
professor of medicine who sits on the
Research Advisory Council, said a
balance between education and resear-
ch is necessary.
"This University is very competitive
nationally for research support. This
support reflects the standing of the
University and keeps us from being a
second rate University," DeMuth said.

Faculty to discuss quorum rule

Because of a frequent failure to
muster enough faculty members to
conduct business at its monthly
meetings, the Literary College gover-
ning faculty yesterday agreed to
discuss a plan to change quorum from
100 members-to the number that show
up at any meeting.
The motion, introduced at yester-,
day's meeting by Professor Edgar
Willis, came after the LSA faculty was
forced to postpone discussion on a

proposed new manual of procedures for
the college's Academic Judiciary
because of lack of a quorum. About 60 of
the school's approximately 800 faculty
members were present yesterday.
Willis declined to discuss his proposal
until he presents arguments for it at the
governing faculty's next meeting in
April. But LSA College Dean Billy Frye
agreed that the proposal carries at
least the theoretical danger that a
'small group of faculty members might
decide policy for the entire college.
Frye said if only a tiny group showed
up at a meeting, he "would probably
decline to carry on business with that
kind of a group," and would ask for a
motion to adjourn.
"I would surely hesitate to act on
significant business with less than fifty
people (present)," he said.
The faculty will discuss Willis'
motion at the April meeting, and could
vote on it then-if they have quorum.
In other business yesterday, the
governing body was also presented the
list of nominees running for spots on
LSA committees. LSA faculty members
will elect colleagues for Executive
Committee, Curriculum Committee,
Senate Assembly, Library Committee,
Ombudsman, and Joint Student-
Faculty Committee.
