A look inside PESO classrooms



Physics 242, "General Physics III"
meets Tuesdays and Thursdays at 2
p.m. in the Physics and Astronomy
At the same time, Physics 400, "En-
ergy and Man" gathers across the
street in Randall Laboratories.
The main difference between the
two? The first is a traditional Univer-
sity course; the second a part of the
Program in Educational and Social
Change (PESO).
In the controversy generated by
PESC's open auditing policy, only
scanty attention has been paid to its
wide variety of course offerings and
program innovations.
PESC faculty - many of them so-
cial scientists - offer both redesigned
versions of already existing courses, as
well as a number of. totally new of-
It is two of these new courses which
have recently been threatened with a
credit review, as they are taught pri-
marily by persons not employed by
the University. f
"Community Control" is taught by
Charles Thomas and Hank Bryant,
both of the Black Economic Develop-
ment League, while "Community Con-
trol of Prisons" is taught by John Sin-
clair, head of the Rainbow People's





History Prof. Sam Warner leads PESC class

In addition, assistance is given the
teachers of these and other PESC
courses by "resource" persons. The
community course for instance relies
upon professors in the social sciences
to sponsor it for University students
and to help provide background and
supplementary material.
In other courses, students who have
experience in that field may help teach
the course or serve as consultants.
The community courses have, more
than most PESC courses, made spe-

cial provisions for local persons. A stu-
dent in the "Community Control"
class estimates that up to half the
participants at evening lectures are
"outside" persons.
She adds that the number has in-
creased since the first meeting, as pub-
licity has increased.
Community Course organizers ar
now investigating ways to solve child
care and transportation problems as

students, according to a PESC spokes-

"Community Control," according to
a statement issued for the U.S. social
history course of which it is a part,
is trying to relate general concepts and
titerature of racism, sexism and cap-
italist exploitation to the facts of daily
life in Washtenaw County.
To this end, the course has split
into task forces to explore various
profit and non-profit corporations,
organizations and governmental agen-
cies within the county. Along with this
research, history students are required

The figure represents a 63 per,
cent increase over 1970 contribu-
tions, while the number of donors
increased nine per cent to 33,163.
The Annual Giving Fund, organ-
ized in 1953, supports numerous
student scholarships, awards for
faculty members, and over 80
medical research projects through
voluntary gifts from alumni.
Reasons for last year's increase,
according torWendell Lyons, asso-
ciate director of development, in-
clude improvement in national
economic conditions, reduction of
campus unrest, and increased ac-
ceptance of alumni of recent
changes in the University.
In 1970, according to Lyons, cam-
pus disturbances at the time of
the Black Action Movement strike,
and an economic slump caused a
decline of nearly a million dollars
in fund contributions from the
previous year's level.

Both parties now have 30 days
in which to submit a written brief
to the panel summarizing the ar-
guments of the case.
After studying the briefs, the
panel may call another hearing if
they need clarification on any is-
sue, The hearing officers will then
submit their recommendation -_
or possibly two or three - to
President Robben Fleming for a
final decision.

Clark, a research associate in
the University's Highway Safety
Research Institute, (HSRI), filed
a complaint last January charg-
ing that she was receiving a sal-
ary $3,400 less than a man doing
the same job.
Her request for increased salary{
and back pay, was denied last
March. However, Clark's lawyer
law Prof. Harry Edwards, criticized
the then existing grievance pro-
cedure by which Clark's case was
reviewed, charging that it denied
a complainant due process of law.
As a result of Edwards' charges,
the Commission for Women and
the University's executive officers
drew up the new complaint appeal
procedure - the procedure under
which Clark's complaint is pres-
ently being reviewed.
Under the new process, the
plaintiff and defendant each choose
one member of the three-member
review board. The third-an im-
partial chairman - is chosen by
the other two members from a
panel of seven men originally se-
lected by Fleming.
In the Clark case, law Prof. Rus-
sell Smith acts as chairman, while

In other efforts to balance its

In another action, the govern-
