John Gronvall said the program
had -lost its accreditation which
was provisionally restored after
two appeals.
In addition, Gronvall said the'
Medical School Executive Com-
mittee reviewed the 1973 report
and concluded:
0 The program was not es-
sential to, the central mission of
the Medical School.
0 It would be inappropriate
to fund a program not central to
the mission in lieu of. depleted
finances.
" Increased funding would be
necessary to improve the' qual-
ity: of the program to an ac-
ceptable level-and the funds
are not available.
Acting Director of Speech and
Hearing Sciences Donald Sharf

took exception to Gronvall's'
clain that the section had lost
accreditation.
IN AN UNPUBLISHED letter
to the Daily, Sharf said SHS did
not lose its accreditation. He
said there was only one appeal
to withhold accreditation by the
Education :and Training Board.
Sharf said accreditation was
extended until Sept. 1, 1978
rather than provisionally re-
stored.
Sharf said a letter from the
Chairman of the American
Board of Examiners in Speech
Pathology and Audiology said
the reason for extending accred-
itation rather than reaccredit-
ing was "to allow for clarifica-
tion of the administrative pic-
ture at your institution."

The Chairman was referring'
'to the absence of a permanent
director for SHS. Sharf has been
acting director since 1974.
THE MEDICAL School has
halted the section's efforts to
get a new director until a Chair-
man can be found for the De-
partment of Physical Medicine
and Rehabilitation.
When contacted about the dis-
crepancy between Sharf's and
Gronvall's statements, a spokes-
person said Gronvall did not
disagree with Sharf's claims,
but viewed the information dif-
ferently.
Shaf said the recommenda-
tion to discontinue the program
was based on outdated informa-
tion contained in the 1973 report.

He said upgrading the program
was a difficult task because he
wasn't allowed to see the re-
port. But Sharf said he felt the
program had improved greatly
nonetheless.
The Medical School appointed
a review committee to update
the 1973 report, but SHS faculty
members said the review was
not under the guidelines set by
the Office of Academic Affairs
to deal with discontinuing pro-
grams.
"It is a question of whether
the review committee appointed
by the Medical School wouldn't
be influenced by the decision (to
scrap the p r o g r a m)," Sharf
said.

He said Ford "knocked every
one of (the questions) out of the
ballpark. He was in. the slo-pitch
league."
Singer said, however, that
Ford has "a number: of saving
graces." But he said he still had
doubts about lbe worth of theI
ex-president's visit.
"DESPITE THE real advant-

ages and gains, there were some
problems," he said. "We can't
overlook them."
Bill McGee, a political science
teaching. a s s i s t a n t, said he
"wasn't that impressed" with
Ford's appearance before an in-
troductory p o 1 i t i c a 1 science
class.
"I don't think there's a great
deal to be learned from 50-min-

ute question and answer ses-
sions."
HE SAID A seminar format
might have enhanced the value
of the visit.
McGee said he thought the 300
students in the introductory
class enjoyed the visit nonethe-
less. But he added, "In terms of
what they learned,, I don't think
it was that extensive."
Students, too, had mixed feel-

"IT WAS worthwile," junior
Jeff┬░ Lieberman said, "but it
wasn't spectacular. I kind of got
caught up in the aura of the

"I wish he could have been
more inspiring," said Rachel

Solom, former president of the
literfry college (LSA) student
government, dined with Ford
and. student body presidents.
"THERE WAS a very pleas-
ant dinner with a world leader,"
she recalled. "(I was) really
looking into his eyes, seeing his
realness.
"Maybe that is why I was so
depressed afterwards-the inter-
action was so smooth, he was

Solom said Ford. was "pleas-

saults, and so the crimes-at
least officially-remain unsolv-
ed.
Though it is difficult to pin-
point exactly when the rash of'
related attacks began, the con-
nection between them came to
light in early Noyember. In that
month alone, ten assaults took
place, including two rapes..
The attacks followed little
semblance of a pattern, ranging
from muggings to rapes at knife-
point.'
However, one similarity emer-
ged in each instance which led
police to link the crimes. The
description of the assailant -
Slack male, about :5'10", stocky
)uild, usually wearing some
kind of head apparel - repeated
itself in every case.
After the rash of attacks be-
ian, the University provided an
escort service, first to residents
)f Oxford Housing, where sever-
al of the assaults took place,
later to the entire University
ominunity. University security
officers were taken off their reg-
ular patrols to drive women to
.heir homes.
In late November, four days'
after the second Oxford resident
In three weeks was raped at
South University and Oxford, the
University resurrected the ,Nite
awl bus service.
Buses ran every day on the
ialf hour from 7 p.m. to I a.m.
\fter 1 a.m., students were to
tse the escort service.
The Nite Owl buses had run
uring the time of the "Co-ed
.illings," a series of murders
hich took place in 1969 and 19-

70, but were discontinued when
ridership dwindled. The' Univer-
sity is unsure of the service's
future for this fall.
Rumors of attacks ran ram-
pant. One freshwoman recalled
an evening when several women
on her dorm floor were gathered
in her room discussing the dif-
ferent "mad rapist tales" like
they were ghost stories.
By the time the group broke
up, some of the women were
afraid to go to the showers alone
that night.
"There were stories going
around that were just too hard
to believe," said one junior..
Police now have in custody a
man they believe could be res-
ponsible for the attacks. The
man, Robert Finklea, was ar-
rested last January and charged
with the unarmed robbery of a
woman at South University and
Oxford, and with the rape of a
woman who knew him intimate-
ly.
Shortly after his arrest, . he
was also charged with another
count of sexual,. misconduct for
allegedly assaulting another
man in jail.
Finklea was convicted of the
unarmed robbery charge, and
still faces trial for the other two
charges.
Aside from the robbery, Fink-
lea has not been charged with
any of the fall attacks, nor is it
likely that he will be. None of
the women who were assaulted
have been able to identify him
as the man who attacked them.
Although he would not confirm
that he believed Finklea was
still a suspect, Major Raymond

Woodruff of the Ann Arbor Po-
lice Department detective divi-
sion noted, "There have been
no reported rapes of that type
since his (Finklea's) incarcera-
tion."
Prosecution attorney William
Delhey said last May that Fink-
lea was still a suspect in the ser-
ies of assaults.

The University's largest col-
lege, the literary college (LSA),
is affected most by the change-
over.
In February, Ernest Zimmer-
man, assistant to the vice-presi-

dent for academic affairs, said,
"Most schools other than LSA
could handle the (old) appoint-
ment process well because of
the limited number of students
involved. C-┬░rtain schools could
give specific students priority
over others for various reasons.
"LSA, however, simply could-
n't handle it effectively with 13,-
000 students grinding through the
system," Zimmerman said.
