Turkey, an ally of the United
States in the North Atlantic
Treaty Organization, is a nation
of 4 million bordering the Soviet
Union.
Army leaves were canceled and
units in this capital c it y were
placed on partial alert, but the
country seemed calm.
The ultimatum was issued by
the country's four leading mili-
tary men in the form of a memo-
randum to the president and the
leaders of the Assembly and Sen-
ate.
As broadcast by state radio it
said: "The continuing attitude
and behavior of t h e parliament
and government has pushed our
country into anarchy, fratricide,
and social and economicrunrest."
The generals demanded a new
government "above party politics,"
and warned: "if this is not speed-

The student-faculty committee charg-
edwith finding a new deaniof the literary
college is entering the final month of
its search for a successor to former Dean
William Hays.
The committee is scheduled to recom-
mend a group of four candidates for the
position to President Robben Fleming by
April 1. Fleming and the Regents will then
make the final selection.
Since Hays' departure a year ago, Al-
fred Sussman, former associate dean of
the literary college, has been serving as
acting dean.
Trn- a hie nrt lo QtgYnxrSiivi now

Committee members are also fearful that
if the names were made public, the nom-
inees would withdraw.
"Finding a dean is not easy," Fine says.
"One has to find a man who will be satis-
factory to all the constituencies of the
literary college.
"One of the major concerns of any-
one appointed dean," he adds, "is that
he carry sufficient weight with the higher
administration. This is necessary to en-
sure that the literary college receives a
good share of the budget for faculty salaries
and educational programs."
Other qualities Fine thinks the new

job and "not limit ourselves by the per-
sons' political beliefs."
"We are gambling on a man, rather than
on a particular committed approach,"
Fine said.
Hoffman thinks that in the past the dean
has always been a politician rather than
a manyofsvision. To change this role he
says the committee is now looking for
people who have a vision of undergrad-
uate education and who have proposals
for educational reform.
Of the 90 candidates nominated, 40 are
from within the University, while the re-
maining 50 were selected from o t h e r
universities.
