PIRGIM survey
According to the Public Interest Research Group
in Michigan (PIRGIM), State Senator Gil Bursley
(R-Ann Arbor) and State Rep. Perry Bullard (D-
Ann Arbor) voted consistently for the "public
good" during their term in office. Tabulating a
"public interest quotient" by analyzing the voting
records of lawmakers on such key issues as politi-
cal reform, consumer, environmental and human
rights issues, the PIRGIM survey shows Bullard
as supporting public interests 100 per cent of the
time while Bursley supported them 77 per cent of
the time. About half of all legislators ranked above
50 per cent in the survey.
Guv endorsements
The state's two largest newspapers, the Detroit
Free Press and the Detroit News, have endorsed
Gov. William Milliken in his bid for re-election this
November. At the same time, three police organiz-
ations - the Detroit Police Officers Assoc., Police
Officers Assoc. of Michigan, and Wayne County
Sheriff's union local - pledged their support for his
Democratic Party opponent Sander Levin. The
law enforcement groups backed Milliken four years
ago, when he also ran against Levin.
Student loans
State Rep. Perry Bullard (D-Ann Arbor) yester-
day requested an investigation into the state's guar-
anteed student loan program to determine why
more banks are not participating. Bullard, who is
running for re-election, said that less than half
of the institutions eligible to provide the guaran-
teed loans during the past year actually did lend
students money.
A meaty issue
An Ingham County judge yesterday halted en-
forcement of a new strict state law banning the
use of, de-fatted tissue in hotdogs. The ruling sig-
naled another blow to state meat standards,
which are stricter than federal rules. A Novem-
ber 11 hearing on the law was ordered by the
judge - at which time the measure will be
grilled, so to speak.

TUBAC, Ariz. (/P) -- Mexican
President Luis Echeverria blunt-
ly told President Ford yester-
day that if the United States
wants a share of Mexico's newly
discovered oil deposits, it will
have to pay the current high
world market price.
Concluding a day of border-
straddling summit talks, Ford
and Echeverria appeared at a
joint news conference at a
country club dining room and
made these other disclosures:
* Mexico has given up hope
of negotiating a new treaty
with the United States on mi-
grant farm workers, but in-
sists that the Mexican workers'
rights be observed while they
are in the United States.

recognition of Cuba remains MEX

Compromise order
restricts documents
WASHINGTON O)-A federal judge issued an order
yesterday temporarily blocking the White House from giv-
ing former President Richard Nixon custody'of his White
House papers and tapes but allowing him to look at them
in the meantime.
The order by U.S. District Judge Charles Richey was
isued in response to competing motions asking him on
the one hand to force the White House to stop giving
out the materials and to ship them to California and on
the other hand to order them held in government custody.
RICHEY ordered a little of both, directing the White House to
hold onto the papers at least until the broader questions of the

Faculty revises 2 LSA

The controversial Graduation
Requirements C o m m i s s i o n
(GRC) report moved forward
last night as the literary college
(LSA) faculty definitively voted
to revise undergraduate resi-
dency and distribution require-
The review of the undergradu-
ate degree had been stymied for
months by lengthy debate, fre-
quent lack of quorum required
for voting, and general faculty
apathy, but LSA Dean Billy

Faye's suggestion that the fac-
ulty begin voting officially last
n i g h t on recommendations -
rather than tentatively, as in the
past-revived the report.
THE FACULTY supported the
report's proposal to stiffen the
present residency requirements:
Students will now have to earn
at least half their total credit
hours on campus. While stu-
dents can currently enter the
University with 75 credits from

Negotiators for the Graduate
Employes 'Organization (GEO)
will present their total list of
economic demands, including an
average 25 per cent pay hike, to
the University tonight as bar-
gaining between the two groups
enters its fifth month.
The demands-which are like-
ly to meet stiff competition from
the University-include the re-
vised pay scale, increased fringe
benefits, and free tuition for
teaching fellows, research and
staff assistants.
ALTHOUGH the University
has yet to see the specific de-
mands and wants to withhold
comment until they do so, GEO
expects stiff opposition.
"Tension will rise a little bit
as they begin to question us on
our economic package," GEO
spokesman David Gordon said
yesterday: "Frankly, we're ex-
pecting a lot of 'no.'s' We're go-
ing to end up large distances
The central demand in the
CEO package is for free tuition
for all teaching fellows.
GEO FEELS that tuition is a
"tax on employment," since all
TP's must take classes in order
to teach.
"It's just a reasonable de-
mand," chief GEO negotiator
Michele Hoyman said last night.
"The other Big Ten and some
of the Ivy League that have
good grad programs give slight-
ly more than what our wage
demands are, in addition to
tuition waivers."
The union demands would also
eliminate the present pay scale,
which divides teaching fellows
into three large groups on the
basis of seniority, with varia-
tions according to the amount
of time spent on the job.
What the union seeks is a

would mean a pay increase of
about 29 per cent from $1820 a
semester to $2365.
Those on the top end of the
pay scale would receive the
same amount, an increase of
around 14 per cent, while those
on the bottom end wouldbe get-
ting an increase of 30 per cent.
GEO says the rates are
"eminently reasonable" a n d
that since they include earlier
an 8 per cent hike granted to
other University staff, the ef-
fective hike is only 17 per cent.
"THE RATE is corensur-
ate to what the faculty asked
for and the pay rate is lower,"
CEO spokesman David Gordon
said. "An 18 per cent pay hike
for a professor amounts to more
than most of our constituency
is making already."
Earlier in the negotiations,
the University offered the union
an 8 per cent pay hike promised
last year on the condition that

other schools, under the new
plan only 60 hours will be
counted towards the degree.
While the residency require-
ments were made more restric-
tive, additional new clauses lib-
eralized the rules according to
LSA counseling chief Charles
Morris. The faculty voted in
favor of suggestions that at least
30 hours of residency must be
earned in the last two years
and that no more than 60 credit
hours may be earned by ad-
vance placement, credit by ex-
this represent the t o t a 1 eco.
nomic package. The union de-
clined the offer, but has since
filed unfair labor p r a c t i c e
charges, claiming that they
were then legally entitled to 8
per rent.
THE UNION is also asking
cost of living increases of 2 per
cent for every one point rise in
the cost of living and increased
fringe benefits, which include:
--full Blue Cross-Blue Shield
protection instead of the partial
coverage now offered;
-a dental care plan;
-a University paid life insur-
ance policy;-
-a transferable retirement
fund equal to 5 per cent of
teaching fellows' pay.
GEO IS expecting a quick re-
sponse to the demands, possibly
as early as Nov. 12, after which
the union will set a strike dead-
line. Organizers feel this could
come in early February.

AFTER LONG, intense de-
bate, the faculty voted in favor
of the report's revised, inno-
vative distribution require-
ments. Describing the present
distribution requirements as
"like taking inventory," the
commission had recommended
that students discuss a plan of
distribution with an advisor by
the second semester of study.
After approval, the plan would
be filed as a contract between
the student and the college.
Morris described the plan's
concern for innovation: "Stu-
dents can now have a voice in
the structure of their own pro-
According to the faculty's re-
vision, candidates for the B.A.
and B.S. degrees must fulfill the
distribution requirements by
taking at least eight courses of

to a plan of their own design or

ences, social sciences, and the

But he ordered that Nixon can
have access to the materials
from his administration "for the
sole purpose of preparing to
testify in the Watergate crim-
inal trial" and that if he can-
not physically come to Washing-
ton to look at the materials he
can have copies made.
Pichey, who held a hearing
on the matterearlier yesterday,
said his order should not pre-
vent the turning over of ma-
terials in response "to a validly
issied subpoena in any civil or
criminal case," or to producing
s'ich materials for the Water-
gate cover-up trial now going on.

for a temporary restraining or-

The agreement about the
