The pie of flying keps getting higher. The
Civil Aeronautics Board approved a four per cent
increase yesterday in air fares for passengers fly-
ing within the United States. At the same time, it
made permanent a six per cent hike that it ap-
proved on a temporary basis last April. That hike
had been scheduled to expire yesterday. The two
actions mean domestic air fares on Nov. iS will
have risen 15 per cent since the fuel shortage hit
last winter. The board approved a five per cent
hike last Dec. 1 and the temporary increase on
April 16. The new hike, like previous increases,
was justified by the airlines on the basis of rapid-
ly rising fuel costs and general inflation.
President Ford's job rating has increased over
the hst month to 55 per cent, the latest Gallup Poll
shows. Twenty-eight per cent disapprove of the
president's performance and 17 per cent have no
opinion, according to the survey, which was con-
ducted Oct. 18-21, after Ford's appearance before
a congressional subcommittee to explain his pardon
of former President Richard Nixon. The previous
study, taken one week earlier, showed 52 per cent
approving of Ford's performance. The increase e
Ford's rating has come mainly from Republicans,
who give the P'resident a 75 per cent approval fig-
ure. At his low point in popularity, 65 per cent
of GOP voters approved.

If consumers plan to follow President Ford's aim
to cut back spending to fight inflation, the trend
did not show up in October sales reported yester-
day by the nation's leading discount and depart-
ment stores. Sales gains among the big nationwide
retailers such as Sears, Roebuck & Co. and J. C.
Penney Co., were up as much as 21 per cent
in October over a year ago. And the government
reported all retail sales for the last week in Oc-
tober rose to a seasonally adjusted $10.56 billion,
8 per cent above last year. An Associated Press
sampling of stores in several cities also showed
President Ford's Oct. 8 appeal for voluntary spend-
ing cuts to fight inflation has had little effect in its
first few weks.
A San Quentim convict scheduled to be paroled
today after 17 years in jail for murdering his wife
says he won't leave the prison. Ewing Scott, 78,
told prison authorities he won't accept freedom
because he was "illegally detained in the first
place." For Scott, accepting parole would be tan-
tamount to admitting guilt for a crime he claims
he never committed. Raymond Procunier, state
director of corrections, said it was the first time a
convict ever refused parole. "He has refused to
sign the order accepting the parole," Procunier
said Wednesday. "We'll just have to wait and see
if he is going to stick to his position before taking

To the average voter, this year's University
Board of Regents race seems to have been con-
ducted with all the publicity of a clandestine CIA
The Regents, who exercise near-total control
over University affairs, normally slip into office
barely noticed at the end of a long ballot. This
year is no exception.
THE REGENTS' contest boasts 15 candidates
who represent all shades of the political spec-
trum, from the American Independent Party
(AIP) of George Wallace to the left-wing U. S.
Liberal and radical hopefuls in the race have
stressed proposals for ending alleged discrimina-
tion against women and minorities by the Uni-
versity, while conservatives have tended to stress
"My main concern is that the University must
Capinoue on fnce
not be permitted to continue its present racist
and sexist policies," says Democrat Sarah Pow-
er. Sh'e argues that the University "has not been
meeting its responsibilities" in hiring blacks and
women, and points out that there is only one
black female professor at the University. -
BOTH HUMAN Rights Party (HRP) hopefuls,
Ellen Hoffman and Diane Kohn, pledge support
for affirmative action guidelines to hire more
blacks and women and give them increased de-
Democratic and HRP candidates indicate their
strong support for clerical workers' and Gradu-
ate Employes' Organization (GEO) demands for
higher wages. . ...
Kohn contends that it is unfair "for the Uni-
versity to pay some professors $30,000-$40,000
when the clericals in many cases are being paid
only $6,000." Hoffman argues that '"TFs (who
are represented by GEO) are simply not being
paid a living wage."
REPUBLICANS and Conservative Party candi-
dates do not indicate whether or not they would
specifically support demands for higher wages.
Republican hopeful Dona Parker admits that
most of the clerical and GEO demands are jus-
tified, but says a final decision on a possible
hike can't be reached without further study.
Parker also admits that discrimination has
occurred in present University hiring and ad-
missions policies towards minority groups and
women, but says she opposes any "quotas" in
employment or enrollment.
"I think the University should encourage mi-
nority enrollment, but to say to a certain per-
centage, I'm afraid I don't agree because it
might exclude some," says Parker.
DEMOCRATIC candidate Thomas Roach, on
the other hand, vows support for increased minor-
ity enrollment. He argues that the University
hasn't made enough effort to recruit minorities,
particularly in the Detroit area.
Recent University financial troubles have
sparked considerable debate, but few proposed
solutions in the campaign.
Last month, Governor William Milliken indi-
cated in a letter to President Robben Fleming
that state appropriations to the University may
be cut as much as four per cent next year.

President Gerald Ford urg-
ed the nation's voters last
night to defeat big spend-
ers in Congress and declar-
ed: "If some of them are
Republicans, so be it." '

WHILE repeating his charge
that Congress is responsible for
big government spending and
thus inflation, Ford .eased off
on his accusation that Demo-
cratse are to blame.
"If you are unhappy about
the handling of the nation's fi-
iiances over the past 20 years,
if you think it is time for a
change, remember next Tues-
day who the big spenders are - '
and throw them out. And if
some of them are Republicans,
so be it."
"Now is the time for re-

all political persuasions - Re-

not in an effort at political ad-

A major factor in the continuing discrimination encountered
by women and minorities is their disproportionately low employ-
ment at colleges and universities across the country, according
to retiring Congresswoman Edith Green (D-Ore.)
Green, a 20-year veteran of the House of Representatives who
will retire at the end of the current session, made that assessment
yesterday to about 50 people at Hale Auditorium in the Business
THE SPEECH FOCUSED on the Higher Education Act - a bill
designed to end discrimination on the basis of race and sex and
guarantee equal pay for equal work - which Green helped author
and guide through Congress.
The law specifically guarantees identical working benefits and
promotional opportunities for men and women in employment at
colleges and universities.
Green, however, admits the measure has not been entirely
successful and commented, "At times I would like to deny any
parentage of it." .
BUT SHE VEHEMENTLY opposed the establishment of quotas
to insure equal rights.
"I am against giving jobs to groups that have been historic-
ally discriminated against," Green said. "Everyone should be

Amid continued post - election
turmoil, Student Government
Council (SGC) last night ap-
pointed a treasurer despite
warnings from minority party
members that the vote is illegal
under Council rules.
President Carl Sandberg ap-
pears to have control over, most
independent Council members
as well as those of his own
Reform Party. After threaten-
ing to resign if his choice of
treasurer was not approved,
SGC voted 13i/-7% to okay
Elliot Chikofsky for the post.
CAMPUS Coalition (CC) op-
posed this, pointing out that
Chikofsky had been active in a
party which also ran two can-
didates currently charged with
misuse of SGC funds.

Many of the remarks con-
cerned the fact that Chikofsky
succeeded David Schaper s as
treasurer. Schaper has, been
charged along with Jacobs with
misusing $42,000 in Council
SEVERAL Council members
claimed t h a t the treasurer
should be respdnsive to the
SGC, not the pr'esident person-
ally, which would prevent the
apparent monetary mishandling
typical in the past.
After the approval of a treas-
urer, Faye announced he is fil-
ing suit with the Central Stu-
dent Judiciary against all votes
taken by Council last night.
Under SGC rules, the Council
cannot vote on any matters un-
til after its second meeting fol-
lowing an election. Last night's
meeting was the second time the
new Council has met.
