Security measures in University
r'esidence halls have been in-
creased in response to a rash of
arsons that have plagued housing
units in the last few weeks.
A small fire which broke out yes-
terday in Bursley Hall brought

to 45 the number of blazes strik-
ing University buildings in the last
month.
In addition to the two fires re-
ported in South Quad Thursday,
three more blazes were set later
that night. The fires hit a laundry

room, an incinerator room,
restrooms.

AFFIRMATIVE ACTION:

yiew procedures to pinpoint salary
inequities between male and fe-
male non-academic employes. .
The Personnel Office last montho
released initial results of its em-

pleased with the resulting tests.
Medical student John Kukora
says "the tests do not measure
what they should" in terms of
what students have learned in the
course.
Not all students favor a change
in the system, however.'
Natural Resources student Cas-
ey Sterbenz, '71, says he thinks
"there. is a lot of opposition" to
dropping finals, in his college, and
that because of class size, it is
perhaps the only adequate means
of assessing a student's level of
knowledge.
According to Herman Merte,
professor of: mechanical engineer-
ing, the engineering college pres-
ently has no rule requiring that
final exams bemheld. However,
many faculty members are un-
aware of their option.
Currently, only students taking
laboratory do not take final ex-
ams in the college.
Merte says many faculty mem-
bers are in favor of retaining final
exams. They believe that prepa-
ration for an exam gives a stu-
dent the opportunity to review
the entire course and see how
"the bits and pieces interact," ac-
cording to Merte.
Tom Beaver, a student on the
ad hoc ommittee, disagrees. Ac-
cording to Beaver, "cramming for
a final exam is not a good learn-
ing experience," and a greater
number of comprehensive tests
given throughout the semester
.might be a better idea.
Beaver says the committee
wants to set up a trial period
during*which"more instructors
will exercise -their option not to
hold exams.

job classifications. However only
13 of these women-or less than
.03 per cent-were recommended
for salary adjustment by their
supervisors.
Of the 13 employes identified,
it appears that not all will receive
approval from the Compensation
Office because of differences of
fairness concepts between super-
visors and the Personnel Office.
In addition to women recom-
mended by the Personnel Office
and identified by the women's
commission, women have received
salary adjustments as a result of
readjustments of job classifica-
tions, according to Zena Zumeta,
woman's representative.
Zumeta, who works with both
the women's commission and the
Personnel Office, cited changes in
the classification within the edi-
torial job category as responsible
for salary adjustment of 10 to 12
women.
Zumeta, who had been critical
of the initial results of the Per-
sonnel Office review, said she was
pleased with the Smith review but
added, "I'm sure if different peo-
ple looked again they could find
more names."
Comparing review of academic
and non-academic personnelZu-
meta commented, "Academic sup-
ervisors have more leewaysetting
salaries of their employes, and
also feel more leeway to readjust
the salaries. For non-academic em-
ployes, the Personnel Office sets
salary guidelines."

An official memo, issued by
Housing Security Officer Dave
Foulke, set up more stringent se-
curity precautions as a result of
the "state of emergency" at South
and West Quads. The precautions
include:
-A "locked door" policy for
South and West Quads which re-
quires dorm resident identification
for admittance to the building;
-Guest admittance only when
accompanied by a dorm resident;
-The prosecution of all persons
who refuse to identify themselves,
who forcefully gain entry to the
hall, or who fail to leave when
asked.
"Residents who tamper with the
doors or hassle security personnel
will be dealt with under the ap-
propriate civil or criminal code,"
the memo stated. Residents were
also urged to report any persons
loitering around the hall.
"The inconveniences that these
measure will present are acknowl-
edged in advance, but they are
far outweighed by the necessity
for decisive action now to prevent
loss of life or serious property
damage," the memo concluded.
According to University officials,
yesterday's Bursley Hall fire be-
gan when a broken up wicker
chair was set ablaze. The fire was
put out quickly and damage was
not serious.
Dorm officials were unsure
when the new restrictions in the
dorms would be lifted.

tions that students may have in
