The text of the article in Science magazine is printed
on today's editorial page.
By LYNN WEINER
University officials have described the Department of
Health, Education and Welfare's demands for equal employ-
ment of women at the University as "totally unreasonable,"
according to today's issue of Science Magazine.
The magazine says that the criticism accompanied the
University's circulation of the HEW demands to the admin-
istrations of several other universities, in an attempt to gain
support for University resistance to the demands.
The magazine also summarizes HEW's requirements for
an affirmative action plan to end alleged sex discrimination
at the University. Both University and HEW spokesmen re-
fused to confirm or deny the validity of the magazine's sum-
mary of those demands, which have not yet been officially

Summary
*Of HEW
demands
The following is a summary of
Science Magazine's description of
the demands by the Department
of Health, Education and Welfare
concerning equal employment of
women at the University:
The achievement of equal
salaries for men and women in the
same category;
The payment of back wages
to each female employe who has
received lower pay than males in
comparable jobs over the last two
years;
0 The achievement of a ratio
of female employment in academic
positions equivalent to availability
of qualified female applicants;
* The assurance that female
applicants for non-academic em-
ployment r e c e i v e consideration
comensuate with their qualifica-
tions;
t The assurance that the Uni-
versity will eliminate separate
male and female job classifica-
tions;
*0The achievement of a higher
ratio of women in doctoral pro-
grams;
0 The increase of female par-
ticipation on committees dealing
with the selection and treatment
of employes;
0 The assurance that all female
employes occupying clerical or
other non-academic positions and
who possess qualifications equal
to or exceeding those of male em-
*ployes occupying higher level po-
sitions be given primary consider-
ation for promotion to those po-
sitions;
0 The development of a written
policy on nepotism which will in-
sure correct treatment of husband-
wife teams and;
* The analysis of past effects
of nepotism and the payment of
back wages to those discriminated
in this area over the last two
years.
The University was asked Oct.
* to submit an affirmative action
plan for equal employment of
women which would incorporate
the HEW demands. The proposal
submitted by the University, how-
ever,dwas rejected by HEW last
Tuesday.

released by the University.
The demands, according to the
magazine, include:
-The payment of back wages
to female employes who have re-
ceived lower pay than men in
comparable job categories over
the last two years;
-The achievement of a ratio of
female employment in academic
positions at least equivalent to the
availability of women employes as
determined by the number of
qualified female applicants;
-The institution of equal sal-
aries for men and women in every
job category in the University;
and
-The insurance that the con-
cept of separate male and female
job classifications is eliminated
through changes in recruitment
procedures.
The federal government is cur-
rently withholding the awarding
of contracts to the University
pending agreement between HEW
and the University on the HEW
demands.
However, according to the maga-
zine, the University has chosen
to resist the demands.
University officials, the maga-
zine reports, have argued that "the
bookwork involved in determining
who had suffered discrimination
would be monumental."

of HEW's Contract Compliance

formation is clearly spelled out in

Students elected a primarily .
radical slate of candidates to
Student Government Council,
and overwhelmingly approv-
ed a referendum calling for
the seating of two faculty
members and two students as
non-voting Regents, in the
elections which ended yester-
day.
The results released last night
showed that only 11 per cent of
the student population had voted
during three days of balloting.
Seven students were elected to
SGC from a field of fifteen candi-
dates.
Chosen to full-year terms were
Paul Teich, '71, incumbent admin-
istrative vice-president, J e a n n e
Lenzer, '74, and Marnie Heyn, '71,
all members of the "New Coali-
tion," a radical alliance; the "For-
ward Party" of Al Ackerman,
'72L, an incumbent, and J e f f
Lewin, '73; and incumbent Andre
Hunt, '74. Brian Spears, '71, also
a coalition member, won election
to a half-year term.
Meanwhile, students in the lit-
erary college elected eight stu-
dents to full one year terms on the
executive council of the LSA stu-
dent government.
Elected to the eight-month old
body were Ed Roberts, '73, (613
votes); Fran Hymen, '73, (603); p0
Pete Prahar, '72, (598); B a r b A (S
Rackes, '73, (592); Rick Ratner,

Students approved by an eight
to one margin the referendum on
expansion of the University's Re-
gents.

Supt. Clarence Giarusso said in
mid-afternoon that they would re-

some change. Officials later said,
however, they would wait until

No figures were released, but
apparently more than 280 officers
were involved in the case.
Black leaders and police agreed
neither law officers nor militants
in the building had shot the youth.
Police said the shot black youth,
Tyrone Curtis, was hit in the
stomach by shotgun pellets fired
from a building three blocks away
from the barricaded headquarters.
He was hospitalized for surgery.
About 1,000 blacks, most of them
teenagers swirled around the De-

settlement, shuttled back and

Panel seeks

extremism
NEW YORK W) - Deploring
pressures from the political left
and right to get universities to
embrace their causes, 100 promi-
nent scholars formed a committee
yesterday which will seek to in-
sure that universities' central con-
cerrs is "to advance and trans-
mit knowledge."
The scholars, who are from nine
nations, include six Nobel prize
winners. The formation of the new
panel, which will be called the
International committee on the
University Emergency, was an-
nounced in a news conference in
New York, Berlin and Rome, link-
ed by telephone.
"The obvious dangers are acts
of terror," the committee said in
a statement released in the three
cities and also distributed in Lon-
don and Paris.
"But the deeper danger, not
visible in the daily headlines, is
the steady erosion of morale and
the retreat from that ordered free-
dom that makes possible compe-
tition in ideas and cooperation in
inquiry," the committee added.
"The intrinsic interests of aca-
demia are now being sacrificed to
considerations foreign to its cen-
tral concern to advance and
transmit knowledge."
