Sex queries heard
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This regular question-and-answer column on mat-
ters of sexual concern is being published in co-operation with Counsel-
ing Services, a division of the Office of Student Services. It will appear
on the back page of the Daily each Friday. Questions may be mailed to
Box 25, The Michigan Daily, 420 Maynard Street, or phoned into 76-GUIDE,
the Counseling Services' 24-hour counseling and referral service.)

Q. Please give an example of what you do when it's the start of a
new semester, you've answered all the questions from last semester,
and there are a lot of new people on campus who've never read your
column before. - R.K.
A. Certainly, R.K., and let me say that Im glad you asked. First,
I give a brief introduction of myself, this column and the service we
offer. Then I publish a directory of places where members of the Uni-
versity community can receive help of one kind or another with sex-
related concerns or problems.
The amount of misinformation on sex that's running around this
country (and this community) is pretty amazing. And it's pretty hard
to know whether information you pick up from friends, books or even
doctors is accurate and complete.
It's my job to change that.
I'm not a doctor, I'm not even an expert in most senses of the
word. What I am is an explainer, a researcher and a skeptic.
What I do is this: When I receive a question, by mail or phone, I,
go to my library on sexual issues and try to find a clear, unambiguous
answer. Most of the time I don't. Authorities disagree or seem to agree
to confuse me.
I take what I can, though and then take my questions to an expert
in the field-a doctor, a population planning expert, a psychologist or
whoever. When I'm confident I understand the question, the answer
and what's behind them, I write it up.
That's not all: The written answer goes back to the expert who
checks it for inaccuracy, ambiguity and omission. When she or he is
satisfied, and I'm satisfied, I pass the asswer on-either in the col-
umn or in person or by mail to the questioner.
For quick answers: Call 76-GUIDE. Questions they can't answer
will be referred to someone who can. Me, for example. 76-GUIDE is
staffed 24 hours a day.

the number of female professors
at the University from 47 in the
1970-71 school year to 78 in the
1973-74. The number of male pro-

At the present time, the wo-

However, an analysis of the
University plan submitted to HEW
by the Women's Equity Action
League, a national organization of
professional women, found the Tni-

The current national average of
female professorships was placed
at 8.7 per cent while the Univer-
sity's projected average for 1973-
74 was 6.6 per cent.
Also, according to a University
statement,; much of the change in
instructional positions projected in

turnover in current staff" an I in'f
most schoolsand colleges there
would be "no increase in instruc-
tional positions for the next three
years because of the budget crisis."
