Mssing person
According to Michigan Student Agembly (MSA)
bylaws, December-elected Stewart Mandell may
be expelled. Mandell missed his third consecutive
MSA meeting Tuesday night, reason enough to be
kicked out. He explained that he is a varsity de-
bater and didn't know about the recent experi-
mental weekly (rather than the usual bi-weekly)
meetings because he was out-of-town at debate
touritaments. The governing student body will vote
on Mandell's status at next Tuesday's meeting.

The Gerbil Magazine makes its debut in the

goodies for 25 pennies. Also on sale in the Hop-
wood Rm.
Co-ed johns
Residents of East Quad's Hinsdale, Greene, Pres-
cott and Tyler Houses were reminded and mildly
reprimanded yesterday in a memo by Lee Kirk, in-
terim housing coordinator at the dorm, that "john
sex designations are to be adhered to." Mean-
while University President Robben Fleming seemed
to take reports of co-ed johns in stride, saying:
"This problem comes up once or twice a year, and
it is not confined to the University, but is a na-
tional phenomena." The situation generally
straightens itself out, he noted.

Funny Father
We've seen the Flying Nun, we've heard the
Singing Nun, so how about the Funny Father? It's
true, garbed in clerical collar and all, Illinois
priest Father Matt Rudden moonlights as a stand-
up comedian in the Maroon Raccoon, a spot in a
Chicago suburb for aspiring comics. Rudden's main
ambition, in fact, is "to have some agent think I'm
good enough to take me as a client." Contributing
his late night earnings to a center for mentally
retarded persons, Rudden says he gets the biggest
laughs when he tells "true experiences in my
priesthood." Hardly in the Lenny Bruce or Don
Rickles tradition.
Oh deer

A school business discussion in Stevenson, Wa.sh.,
was rudely interrupted Tuesday when a black ail
fawn came crashing through the office window,
landing right in front of principal Ron Daron. The
deer, unhurt, then made itself at home on the prin-
cipal's couch. Meanwhile, Daron related, "The as-
sistant principal said this was no place for him
and left. I said. 'Close the door behind you., ,
Coaxed by officia's out of the principal's sofa, the
deer was shoved along the school corridors. It then
made a more traditional exit out the door back to
its home on the range.

Citing "major academic weaknesses" and a predicted mil-
lion. dollar deficit within the school, the Dean and Executive
Committee of the School of Public Health have recommended
thait the Regents consider termination of that school's Popula-
tion Planning Department (PPD).
The Regents, however, are not expected to make a final
decision on the issue until March.
FACULTY AND STUDENTS in the 11-year-old graduate de-
partment have called the February 2 announcement a "bomb-
shell." Department chairman Leslie Corsa agrees it came "out
of the blue."
Of ten full-time professors in the department, eight are ten-
ured and would be shifted to other departments if a closing
becomes necessary. Sixty-one students are working toward gradu-
ate degrees, and School of Public Health Dean Richard Reming-

ton foresees a "tailored program for each one" so they can com-
plete their studies.
In making the recommendation, the Executive Committee
took into account both financial concerns as well as the report
of the Population Planning Review Committee, submitted in
August 1976.
RON HOLROYD, one of two students on the nine-member
committee headed by Remington, says since "the Dean thought
it would be chaotic if the word got out" during deliberations,
he "just used the review finding " in making his decision
about the department.'
Holroyd defended his vote to discontinue the PPD, stressing
the financial problem. "In the '60s there was money to ex-
pand, but now we have to consolidate things."
He also recalled that the Review Committee had criticized
the department's course selection for being "too concerned with
foreign problems instead of national ones."

SINCE THE ANNOUNCEMENT, the member* of the depart-
ment have bitterly protested the proposal.
"The procedure was unethical anld unprofessional," charges
Diana Gurieva, a graduate student rand president of the PPD
Student Association. "Although the evaluation process was open;
he (Remington) has 'Sbifted the whole situation into a budget
matter." The students and faculty complain that Remington
"wouldn't discuss monetary figures with us."

Ricky Wayne Wilson, the 20-year-old Kentuckian
whose gunshot slaying of University freshwoman Jean-
nine Boukai last Sept. 30;in the Arboretum cast a pall
over campus, was sentenced yesterday to a 20 to 40 year
prison term at the state facility in Jackson.
"The prosecuting attorney makes the recommenda-
tion that I imprison you for life," Circuit Court Judge
Patrick Conlin told Wilson. "lie considers you to be noth-
ing more or nothing less than a hit man."
THE JUDGE TOLD Wilson that "no matter how you look at
it," Boukai's "contract" offer of $50 and a motorcycle played a
role in the slaying.
But seconds later, Conlin said, "I'm not going to give you life

wages and benefits.
AFSCME has set next Tues-
day as its negotiation deadline.
The deadlock was broken yes-
terday when the University of-
fered union representatives a
new proposal on promotions and
transfers, accqrding to AFSCME
negotiator Art Anderson.
"We took a look at it. We
chose our terms and they met
us," Anderson said. "We got all
that we asked for."
NEFF CALLED the agree-
ment a compromise.
"The University was able to
meet a number of the unions
interests and still maintain
enough priorities for our own
needs," he said.
The dispute centered on pro-
cedures to be used by the Uni-
versity when filling vacant posi-
tions among workers.
AFSCME contends the current
contract makes it too easy for
the University to hire from out-
side' the union when filling va-
cancies. University negotiaors
have maintained that the na m-
ber of non-union people hired
has been exaggerated by
Negotiators believe that once
wages, benefits and other econ-
omic topics come under discus-
sion the bargaining' pace will
pick up considerably. Just the
same, some officials are cau-
tious to avoid saying whether a
settlement can be reached on a
complete contract before the
present deadline.
AFSCME HAS already noti-
fied the University that its first
economic stand was "totally un-
ac'entable," but serious bar-
gaining on the matter has not
yet begun.
