Vol. LXXXVIII, No. 14 Ann Arbor, Michigan-Friday, September 23, 1977 Ten Cents Twelve Pages


This is the first of a two-part
series on campus crime.
While residents of Helen Newberry casually roam about
their building, doors unlocked, confident that stereos' and
calculators will be where they left them when they return to
their rooms, residents of Bursley and South Quad are sure to
latch their doors, even when taking a quick jaunt to the
bathroom down the hall.
It's no secret that some dorms have more rip-offs than
BUT REGARDLESS of the building you inhabit, you're
likely to be mourning the loss of your tape player if you're not
"For a resident who exercises a normal amount of

rtists find
responsibility the dorms are extremely safe," University ,
Housing Security Manager David Foulke remarked. "But
anyone who's not cautious could be the victim of a crime."
The theft of small, easily portable items which are quickly
convertible to cash'-such as radios, stereos, and
calculators-are the most frequently reported stolen goods in
University dormitories.
"THE MOST COMMON occurrence is the theft of per-
sonal property from an unlocked dorm room, or (property)
left unattended other places around the building," Foulke
Unlocked rooms are a prime target for thefts, whether,
their owners are in them or not. Students have been robbed
while asleep in their rooms and while typing with their backs
turned to the door.
"Theft is a big problem," said Fred Davids, head of

dorms e
University Security. According to Davids, approximately
$200,000 worth of merchandise is reported stolen annually
from residence halls.
"OUR GREATEST PROBLEM," Davids noted, "is with
outside intruders. You still have rip-off artists going through
dorms. This presents a continual problem. Baits and Bursley
are like big hotels-anyone can get in there. Dorms like South
Quad are watched pretty good, but people slip in."
"In dorms with 1200-1300 people it's easier for strangers to
come in and not be recognized as outsiders," said Foulke.'
Dorms closest to the Diag, particularly East Quad and
South Quad have the biggest problem with outsiders, accor-
ding to Foulke.
Because Betsey Barbour, Helen Newberry and Stockwell
are smaller and are women's dorms, they tend to have the
least problems he said..

"WE ASSUME MOST of our crime perpetrators are male,
quite often high school age. It's hard for them to glide down a
female corridor unnoticed. In a dorm like Barbour with 120
residents, you recognize most residents by face. When a
stranger comes ih they stand out."
Though most thefts are committed by outsiders, Foulke
still warns dorm residents to keep an eye on their peers.
"We're not saying we don't house people who wouldn't
consider stealing from their fellow residents," he said.
THEFT IN DORMS seems to be on the decline or at least
leveling off compared to recent years, according to Foulke.
He attributes the improvement to changes made within the
University security program, the assumption of crime-
prevention roles by dorm staff and, most importantly,
changed attitudes by residents.


Future 0MB director

to facetough


WASHINGTON (AP) - President
Carter, the weight of the Bert Lance af-
fair from his shoulders, began a hunt
yesterday for a successor who is cer-,
tain to face tougher scrutiny than Lan-
ce did before being confirmed as the
government's chief budgetmaker.
As Lance, the first of Carter's Cab-
inet-rank officers to quit, left for a long
weekend at home in Georgia, the
President's advisers started eyeing his
prospective successors and the chair-
man of a Senate committee pledged to

scrutinize Carter's choice more closely
before granting approval.
WHITE HOUSE Press Secretary
Jody Powell said James McIntyre Jr.
has taken over as acting director of the
Office of Management and Budget,
which Lance had headed. McIntyre,
who was Lance's deputy, began his new
duties at once, meeting with the head of
the Civil Service Commission to talk
about budgetary matters.
"The President feels no great

pressure to move in a hasty fashion,"
Powell said about the search for a per-
manent successor to Lance. "Jim'has
been intimately involved in the budget
process and the President is quite confi-
dent of his ability to handle the ongoing
process until a considered decision can
be made."
He said Lance "has agreed to take
some time to provide for an orderly
transition ... but no one knows what
period of time is involved." Powell said
no organized proc'edure has been estab-

lished to find a permanent director. He
said he knew of no specific names under
MEANWHILE, Senate sources said
the Justice Department has requested
and received the transcript and
exhibits of the Senate hearings into
Lance's complicated financial
dealings. A source close to the investi-
gation confirmed the report.

HE TOLD the crowd, which had been
waiting for more than an hour for his
plane, that "Labelle and I can't tell you
how much this means to us today to be
welcomed back home like this."
Powell told reporters at the White
House that Lance "has agreed to take

The press secretary seemed glum as
he spoke to reporters at his regular
news briefing. Asked whether he reflec-

Powell replied: "It's my job to reflect-

mood of the White House."

anybody is very happy, and I don't
think it relates to considerations of
political impact."' The President has

Faculty seeks pay hike

but hesitates to

Just as campus service workers are
recouping from their month-long strike
last spring and the Graduate Employe
Organization (GEO) is demanding a
new contract, faculty members too, are
struggling with the University for a
wage increase.
'But unlike .bricklayers or truck
drivers, University professors are
sometimes hesitant to get down in the
trenches of organized labor. At a major
university like this one, when faculty
feel they aren't being paid well enough,
they don't strike-they leave, usually
for more lucrative posts at other big-
name schools.
RESULTS OF A recent report reveal
the University is falling behind its peer
instititions in faculty pay increases.
"We studied a number of Big Ten,
private and California institutions on
the basis of which universities we com-
pete with for. faculty," said William
Neenan, chairman of the University's
Committee on the Economic Status of
.the Faculty (CESF). "If we want to
keen the Universitv's nosition, we halve

vard, Princeton-places that are com-
petitive," Lehmann stated.
Neenan claims there is a rising con-
sciousness among professors of their
economic position.
"I think the faculty is becoming more
interested in economic matters," he
said. "In the past they took this for
granted, but in the last year there has
been rising concern among faculty for
compensation increases."

In an appeal to the Regents last
week, William Neenan, Chairman of
the University's Committee on the,

average compensation increase for
faculty be included in the Univer-'

Neenan said the "restorat
