The University's representatives to the state and local
board of directors of the Public Interest Research Group in
Michigan (PIRGIM) will be chosen in a campus-wide elec-

seats, with the top six vote-getters being sent as representa-

The affirmative action
plan, submitted to the De-
partment of Health, Education
and Welfare (HEW) for approval
in December, 1970, followed find-
ings by HEW of sex discrimination
on this campus.
Included in the HEW charges
as proof of discrimination was a
complaint from zoology Prof. Mar-
garet Davis.
The University recognizes a sal-!
ary misadjustment rather than sex
discrimination and the back pay
grant is not to be connected with
the University's commitment, ac-
cording to Smith.
According, to Smith, the
status of the back pay com-
mitment remains unclear for the
following reasons:
-The affirmative action pro-
gram, of which the commitment
is a part, has never been approved,
by HEW;
-The commitment was made
with the understanding that oth-
er universities would be required
to do the same, which they have
not, and
-The legal power of HEW to
enforce a back pay stipulation re-
mains in question.
According to Davis, her request
for back pay covers the period she

fessor. prior to her annointment

ARC candidates claim their
strength lies in "experience and
credentials." The party's candi-
dates, which include Margo Yellin,
Mike Peisner, William Myers,
Cheryl Hughes, Jay Tower and
Mary Viviano, have all worked to
establish PIRGIM on campus.
The Responsible Alternative
Party (RAP), which has placed
three candidates on the PIRGIM
ballot, aims to keep PIRGIM as a
politically independent institution
funded voluntarily by students.
John Yates, Bill Krebaum and
Dan Dreyer are running on the,
RAP ticket.
The Guard Against Incompe-

Can vitamins keep you on top of things?

"I take them because they're supposed to
prevent colds. When I feel like I'm getting a cold,
I toss down about five-and get acid stomach.
I don't know if they do any good or not."
Such is the reasoning of one student who takes
vitamin C tablets, reflecting the beliefs of many
Americans, especially college students, who worry
about getting "run-down."
Vitamin C became the big thing to take last
year after the publication of a book by Nobel
Laureate Linus Pauling, urging increasing daily
consumption of the vitamin to prevent and relieve
the symptoms of colds.
The latest magical vitamin is E, which is said

what they're doing." Health Service pharmacy
also has "quite a few" vitamin customers.
The vitamin pill variety is extensive at any
drugstore, but no place offers as many kinds as
health food stores, where the variety ranges from
Vitamin C on sale-two for the price of one, to
complete diet supplements.
The difference, however, between the drug-
store vitamin buyers and health food store cus-
tomers is their diets. While the average student
who eats dorm food and the typical American
diet of "worthless" food buys vitamins rather
randomly, the organic food consumer carefully
chooses vitamins as supplements to organic eating.
Health food stores scorn synthetic vitamins-
the majority sold at most drugstores-in favor of
