While Cobb had not yet been'

learned of the selection from$
several high-level administra-;

the likeliest choice to take the
permanent position. Frye, who
had earlier indicated he would
have to do "a great deal of
thinking" before accepting such
an offer, said last night he has
heard nothing yet from the Re-
gents.
But the selection appeared
certain. One administrator dis-
closed, "It's a woman" - and
the other two final candidates
are men. They are Frye and
David Danelski, the ombuds-
man at Cornell University. Da-
nelski had not been reached for
comment at this writing.

Pilot's chances of survival at

comment.
All week long, department
heads came before the adminis-
tration's ad hoc budget review
committee and tried to describe
how bad off they would be in
the event of cuts ranging from
two to four per cent. LSA Dean
Billy Frye Thursday announced
a freeze on all new faculty hir-
ing in the Literary College.

much sleep last week - affirm-
ed that discontinuation of Pilot
is a "distinct possibility" that
hinges on two factors.
While stressing that his own
strong desire to keep the pro-
gram, Frye said a decision to
cut a full four per cent from
the LSA budget - plus a failure
to find other money sources-
would spell doom for Pilot.
Students and administrators
in the program, which is hous-
ed in Alice Lloyd Hall, were
shocked. Last night, the dorm
scheduled a meeting of present
and former program members
next Thursday to consider pos-
sible mass action aimed at pre-
venting Pilot's death. Petition
drives and letter - writing cam-
paigns began almost instantly.
Pilot director Dick Munson,
agreed with other LSA officials
that some members of the col-
lege's Executive Comimittee
might seize a chance to end the
the progressive - minded pro-
gram. And Munson reported
that in Alice Lloyd's dining
rooms, the murmur of discon-
tent over the economic situa-
tion has quickly risen to a roar.
