THE WEEK IN REVIEW

Black enrollment dips
IT APPEARED last week that
the University had caught
itself between old promises and
new realities. As the Regents
learned Thursday, black en-
rollment has dipped from a
high of 7.3 per cent one year
ago to an even seven per cent-
despite the University's 1970
vow to seek a 10 per cent black
enrollment level by fall 1973.
The 1970 promise grew out of
the Black Action Movement's
lengthy, effective strike against
the University. George Good-
man, who directi the Opportun-
ity Program and leads the
search for new minority ap-
plicants, told the Regents he
still thinks the 10 per cent
plateau can be reached. But
that becomes more difficult to
believe after a drop in black
enrollment since the promised
1973 deadline.
Unlike last year, when the
announcement of the 7.3 per

cent figure was accompanied
only by standard short explana-
tions and vows of better ef-
forts in the future, last week's
V figures brought a round of grim
reflection from administrators.
Frank Rhodes, vice president
for academic affairs, admitted
he was "very disappointed"
with the drop in black enroll-
ment, and candidly allowed that
BAM's demands were being met
"much more slowly than any-
one expected." A crucial revela-
tion came from Associate Ad-
missions Director Lance Erick-
son, who said the University
"hasn't established a specific
deadline" for hitting the ten
per cent level.
"I AM NOT encouraged by our
overall picture," said Good-
man, acknowledging that the
income cut-off line for minority
aid recipients tends to exclude
families who have barely es-
caned the poverty bracket. He
said it is time for that cut-off
svstem to be re-evaluated.
He blamed the fall in black
admissions on inflation, saying
black families at the middle
income level-who cannot qual-
ifv for aid-are discouraged
from sending children here due
to high tuition levels. He spoke
with pride, -however, of the
program's improving retention
rate of 86 ner cent. In the past,
the commitment to BAM's goals
has been complicated by the
delayed problems of keeping
black students here once they
enrolled.
Today, a lot of administrators
mist be glad that last week's
news arrived in the placid,
apathetic fall of 1974 rather
than . the militant, volatile
springs of a few years ago.

IS THE NEW BUILDING A BOONDOGGLE? The new Arts and Architecture Building, shown above, cost the' University a wee
$8.5 million and was billed as a cheap, innovative and unusually functional structure. But don't ask the architecture experts! As
The Daily reported this week, professors and students alike are c omplaining that the building is an uncomfortable, impractical
energy waster. Architecture Dean Robert Metcalf (right) insists, "The building functions fairly well in terms of what it was
designed to do," but urban planning Prof. Allen Feldt gripes, "I t's hard to belieye that an architecture college got a building
like this."

pled the campus for several
weeks as thousands of students
boycotted classes, picketed
buildings and disrupted meet-
ings in support of the enroll-
ment demands. Times and,
people have changed; if the
latest enrollment information
sparks a new campus uprising,!
it will come as a surprise. j
The capacity of black stu-
dents and their white supporters
to pressure the University on
the demands is probably mini-
mal. As blacks scheduled a
meeting today at Trotter House
to discuss the latest enrollment
announcement, former BAM
organizer Henry Bernard Clay
wistfully predicted that the news
would reach the deaf ears of
students "interested only in
their own survival.
Pressure tactics
THURSDAY'S Regents meet-
ing had another moment of
truth for the University as
Gerald Dunn (D-Lansing) charg-

ed that some officials "clearly
violated our position of neu-
trality" during .the recent suc-
cessful campaign to organize
campus clerical workers into a
union. Dunn, considered the
most liberal Regent, blasted
the Personnel Office for passing
out subtly anti-union literature
to the University staff.
"If we were neutral," said'
Dunn, "we certainly went over-
board in pointing out the defects
of the union." As The Daily
reported last month, the Per-
sonnel Office, in leaflets and
briefings, stressed that either
of the two unions seeking to
organize the clericals have high
membership dues and supposed-
ly little influence with the Uni-
versity.
Chief Financial Officer Wil-
bur Pierpont claimed the bias
charge was only Dunn's opinion,
but as RegentkLawrence Linde-
mer (R-Stockbridge) pointed
out, it really doesn't matter
now. "If Pierpont wanted to
be biased," said Lindemer, he

didn't succeed, since the
cals voted to unionize."

Opening the files
The Regents kept hogging the
local spotlight Friday as they
voted to put a freeze on all
student records until newly en-
acted federal law takes full
effect, requiring student access
to confidential material. The
freeze warns administrators
against purging the files.
The resolution sprung from
the alarming news earlier this
week that Harvard and several
other schools are purging files
rather than allowing access.
The new law takes effect Tues-
day, but the University decided
to use the allotted 45-day re-
sponse period and hold all files
until January-leaving Congress
time to consider amendments to
the new law.

cleri-

College (LSA) Counseling Dean
Charles Morris admitted Friday
he had "heard that several de-
partments in LSA had destroyed
files earlier this term"--chiefly
graduate students' recommenda-
tion letters.
But Morris, said the purging
must have stopped after a di-
rective asking preservation of
all student records was cir-
culated earlier this fall. He did
not know the extent of file de-
struction.
