Educational conference
"Schooling in Corporate America," a weekend con-
ference sponsored by a number of local and state organ-
izations interested in educational reform, continues
through today in Modern Language Building Aud. 3,
beginning at 9:30 a.m. Today's workshop will focus its
discussion on "Where do we go from here?" Speakers
will include authoress Miriam Wasserman; Wells Keddie,
speaking on the role of teachers; and Al Hurwitz, who
will discuss racism in schools. The conference is being
sponsored by Youth Liberation, PESC, Detroit's From
the Ground Up, and the LSA Student Government.
PESC papers
"The PESC Papers on Education," a 64-page analysis
of American education in general and at the University
in particular, is now on sale for a buck at the U Cellar
and New Morning stores. "All the people who wrote for
this spent one to three-and-a-half years working for
educational change and were largely unsuccessful," said
one of the booklet's authors, Ron Alpern. "This booklet
is an effort to understand why." The booklet-produced
by the Program for Educational. and Social Change
(PESC), focuses on educational structure andideology.

Black mayor airs ire
Atlanta Mayor Maynard Jackson called on delegates
to the National Black Political Convention to "stop
fussing and stabbing at each other." The convention,
being held in Little Rock, Ark., is aimed at initiating
discussions and organizing for polteal power. Jackson
clamed that until blacks could influence the Mississippi
and Georgia state legislatures, joining the call for
President Nixon's impeachment or resignation would be
like "spitting into a hurricane." Jackson also said that
present employment "has left us with a median income
of slightly over $6,000 nationally while the annual median
income for a white family exceeds $10,000." He further
charged that blacks are "the last hired and first to be
ROTC dwindling
What a decade of demonstrations can't do, the dollar
will. The Pentagon now claims that continuing ROTC
training in many colleges and universities is economically
unfeasible. Richard Rose, deputy assistant for defense
secretary for education, said at a news conference yes-
terday that the armed services are alarmed by the
large number of colleges where ROTC courses enroll
fewer than 15 seniors. At some of these schools, the low
enrollments have jacked the costs of training up to
$22,000 per student. If the cadet corps is not brought up
within a few years at these schools, Rose said, the
courses may be dropped.
Connally in 76?
John Connally has given a definite maybe to rumors
that he may seek the Republican nomination 'in '76.
Claiming that he is "keeping a toe in the door," the
former Texas governor and one-time Nixon treasury
secretary said Friday night he doesn't want to be ruled
out of the race for the Republican nomination, but he
doesn't want to be ruled in, either. The former Democrat
took this non-stand while speaking at a banquet in Salt
Lake City, Utah, held in honor of retiring Sen. Wallace

Tricia speaks
Tricia Nixon Cox has once again defended her father
in connection with the Watergate scandals, this time in a
copyrighted article in the April issue of Ladies' Home
Journal. "I think that history will record that Watergate
was a politically motivated matter that used the mis-
takes of a handful of foolish people to try to force out of
office, by resignation or impeachment, a man who was
innocent of all the fiction, not fact, of which he was
accused," said the President's daughter, who went on
to add, "The rumor that has to be one of the most
ridiculous is that (her husband) Eddie and Daddy don't
like each other, that they can't stand to be in the same
room alone together.

Although Police Chief Walter Krasny terms it a "serious problem,"
he admits that city rape cases "are not being handled adequately due
to lack of manpower."
BETWEEN 1968 and 1972, the number of reported instances of
rape and attempted rape in the city skyrocketed nearly 300 per cent-
surpassing even Detroit's rate of growth for this crime.
Meanwhile, convictions dropped to almost zero.
Charging that the city's present policies regarding rape are "inade-
quate," the Human Rights Party (HRP) is proposing a resolution to
City Council tomorrow night which is aimed both at preventing rape
and offering medical and emotional assistance to the victim.
ACCUSING THE CITY of having made only "token commitments"
towards the problem of rape, HRP is calling for the formation of an
all-female rape squad, free medical treatment fo raIl rape victimss,
and free self-defense classes.
The HRP proposal also calls for round-the-clock free transportation,
higher intensity lighting for city sidewalks, alarm systems in public
bathrooms and a direct free line to the police using a universal emer-
gency number.

According to police statistics for 1972, nearly 90 per cent of all rapes
occur in the late evening and early morning hours. Approximately
one-fifth of the victims are attacked while out on the street.
"PROVIDING HIGHER intensity lighting and free public transpor-
tatipon would greatly increase a woman's safety at night-especially
low-income women who cannot afford transportation and who are most
often the victims of rape," said HRP member Diana Autin.
During 1972, more than 70 per cent of all rape victims were between
the ages of 17 and 23, and over 30 per cent of all rapes occurred in
the area surrounding central campus, making this also an issue of
"vital concern to students."
Autin feels that the most effective way to combat rape is for "all
women to learn how to defend themselves adequately."
"THE HRP PROPOSAL emphasizes prevention rather than prose-
cution," she said. "However, we do encourage the victim to press
lhe proposal also calls for an overhaul of the present Michigan
rape statute which was adopted in 1857 and has been subject to only
slight revisions in the intervening years.
HRP recommends that the state legislature adopt a rape statute
with the following provisions:

-that the facts concerning the personal behavior or sexual habits
of the victim not be considered as evidence bearing on either her
possible consent to the act or her activity as a witness;
-that degrees of rape be established to include incidental injuries;
-that any standard of resistance be regarded in terms of the
danger the victim was subjected to; and
-that general penalty provisions be lowered and scaled to the
system of degree.
HRP CONTENDS that many of the questions asked the rape victim
are both "embarrassing and irrelevant."
The police are required to include in their case report information
such as the reputation of the victim, prior sexual experience, her
relationship to the suspect, length of acquaintance with the suspect
and how recently she had sexual contact prior to the rape.
IF THE HRP proposal is passed, a Women's Crisis Center inter-
ventionist would be immediately called in to help protect the victim's
physical and emotional. needs

mented:. "Rape is the only crime in which the victim is duly violated,
first by the attacker, and then by society. .
"In rape, society tends to blame or accuse the woman."

THE PROTEST was part of a
larger national effort to boycott all
stores which sell non-UFW grapes
and lettuce. While Wrigley's does
sell union produce, it is supplied
by the Teamsters Union rather
than UFW. According to a spokes-
person at yesterday's demonstra-
tion, the Teamsters Union does not
represent farmworker interests.
As cars turned into the Wrigley's

Michigan simply never got un-

Marquette went to work on Mich-

Chi cano
A Chicano Awareness Week fea-
turing speakers, movies, "tea-
tros," book exhibits, and music
will be sponsored tomorrow
through Friday by the Movimiento
Estudiantil Chicano De Aztlan (M-
ECHA), the Chicano umbrella or-
ganization on campus.
The University's Housing office
is providing much of the funding
for the week's events through its
Project Awareness.
ACCORDING TO Arturo Nelson,
Chicanonadvocate, the University
has been negligent toward Chica-
nos up to the present. "The Chi-
cano Awareness Week will accom-
plish two things, Nelson says.
"First, it will sensitize the Univer-
sity to Chicano needs at all levels;
second, it will reinforce the cul-
ture of a gr6up of students who are
institutionally and geographically
alienated from their backgrounds."
One of the goals of the confer-
ence is to point out the stereotypic
treatment of Chicanos in the mass
media. Chicano movies will be
shown, and teatros (theatres),
which provide a cultural vehicle
for satirical treatment of daily
problems and frustrations, will also
be featured.
Monday the movie Yo Soy Chi-
cano will be shown in Markley's
Angela Davis Lounge at 8 p.m.,

She attributed this to counselors

Most of the women advocated
compromise in solving the conflicts
arising between jobs and marriage.
"You have to work out a set of
compromises that hopefully will
last," said Marcia Jablonski, di-
rector at the U-M Television Cen-

Women slowly gai
in engineering field'-
Traditionally attended almost exclusively by men, the University's
School of Engineering has experienced steadily increasing female en-
rollment since World War II, according to Dean David Ragone.
However, despite recent efforts to attract women to the field, the
engineering school still has only 126 female students out of a total
enrollment of 2,942.
According to Ragone and Assistant Dean Robert Hoisington as well
as several female engineering students, women's lack of interest in
engineering is simply due to sex role stereotypes.
"SETTING A quota for the Engin School would be highly unrealis-
tic because most girls are just not interested-girls prefer arts and
literature rather than science and math," one female student claims.
And although many University divisions are presently setting per-
centage goals for female and minority enrollment, engineering school
officials claim such policies are not feasible in engineering.
"A quota is reasonable only if there is an adequate number of
women who possess these qualifications, and this might very well be
reasonable in about 20 years or so," Ragone maintains.
SIMILARLY, Ragone and Hoisington say quotas for employment
of women in the engineering school would be unworkable due to the
shortage of qualified faculty.
The engineering school presently employs three women as full
"professors: one in Aerospace Engineering and two in Humanities for
