dian doctoral candidate, "you

If the initial evaluation of
PPD, begun in the fall of 1975,
had come six months or a year
later, student Margaret Gorecki
said, the review would have re-
flected a marked shift in the de-


partment from international to
domestic focus. Dean Reming-
ton stated that there is no com-
parable population studies pro-
gram in Michigan.
In defense of PPD's reputa-
tion, Gorecki explained that
while she was working in Ne-
pal searching for a program
"the kind of advice I got was,
"Michigan is where it's at'."
Since PPD will lose its Aid
for International Development
and Ford Foundation grants in
1978, Remington stressed a pre-
dicted deficit in excess of one
million dollars for the SPH.
"Where's the money?" asked
Remington, referring to the
school's inability to compensate
for the $140,000 loss in outside
funding to PPD.
Facing "severe p r o b 1 e m s
within a budgetary context," the
University must contend with
the loss of federal and state
funds and "we don't know where
to go to make up that shortfall,"
Rhodes commented.
Remington added that PPD is
"not a strong research group."
He cited the program's inability
to obtain outside research
Research productivity is mea-
sured in terms of publications
reviewed by peers.
SPH's Executive Committee,
in its Feb. 2 recommendation
with -the Dean to drop PPD,
claimed that, "Research pro-
ductivity of this faculty is also
low, amounting throughout the
1970s to approximately one peer-
reviewed publication per faculty
member per two years."
But in a published response,
PPD members protested that
this only indicates journal arti-
cles. Also PPD Assistant Profes-
sor Judith Herrington said she
was one of many PPD members
preparing to publish research

Meanwhile, a pro-AFSCME
student group has, for the past
week, attempted to prevent stu-
dents from filling union jobs in
the event of a strike.
THE GROUP, called the Stu-
dent Support Committee for
AFSCME, is encouraging stu-
dents to honor union pickets
and avoid doing work normally
done by AFSCME emploves.
All campus buses will be op-
erating as scheduled during the
strike, according to assistant ga-
rage foreman Joseph Kennedy.
WHILE nurses' aides and oth-
er University Hospital employes
will be involved in the strike,
campus officials said they
doubted the student Health Serv-
ices would be affected.
Neither the University nor
the union will speculate on how
long the strike may last.
Neff said the University's
first response to the walkout will
simply be to monitor union ac-
tivities and learn the extent of
the strike. The campus can seek
a court injunction against the
strike, but before that, Neff
said, "We would have to assess

.a disagreement between the two
bargaining teams on the even-
ing of Nov. 18, the day negotia-
tions broke down. At that time,
the sides had agreed to every
item in the contract except one
-the clause determining whom
GEO trepresents.
Since GEO already had two
grievances pending on this par-
ticular clause, the University
refused to sign a new agreement
containing controversial lan-
guage, and insisted that GEO
drop the two grievances. The
administration further stipulated
that the union must sign a
memo promising not to file the
grievances again, and acknowl-
edge that the grievances were
"inconsistent with the current
and precedingmcollective bar-
gaining, agreements."
GEO refused, saying the Uni-
versity was "holding up the
signing of the contract for a
non-mandatory bargaining is-
sue." The administration dis-
agreed, and the union filed the
gued that the administration had
not presented the grievance
memo at the bargaining table
until Nov. 17, the day before ne-
gotiations were halted. Barbras
Tannenbaum, a GEO bargainer,

testified: "The University did
not bring up the memo during
the time that I was bargaining
(October through November)
until Nov. 17. At that time, it
came as a big shock to us."
The union also argued that the
matter of who was covered un-
der the contract was never dis-
cussed at the bargaining table,
and therefore was not a factor
in this year's agreements. Since
it was not an openly discussed
issue they said, the administra-
tion was committing a ULP by
refusing to execute the contract
because of that clause.
Although the University plead-
ed innocent to those charges, it
did not attempt to refute them.
"THE PROBLEM," said chief
University bargainer John For-
syth, "is that if we actually
tried to win the ULP, we would,
Our case is so clean that we
coildn't lose.
"Unfortunately." he contin-
ued. "if we win the ULP, then
MERC won't answer the ques-
tion of whether they are em-
ployes or not. If we don't pre-
sent any other defense, then
MERC has to consider that ques-
tion, which is what we want
them to do."
University attorney Robert
Vercruysse argued the adminis-
tration's stance by comparing
the University to our "peer in-
"AT BERKELEY, Harvard,
Yale, Stanford, MIT, and our
other peer institutions, graduate
student assistants are by law
not considered employes," hel
Vercruvsse cited the Leland
vs. Stanford case of 1974 as le-
gal precedent that GSAs are not
employes. In that case, graduate
student staff and research as-
sistants were determined to be
students, not employes.
After the hearing at the Mich-

S TAs'
igan Union, leaders on each side
called the other "liars".

the hearing, University attorney
William Lemmer said later.

17 as GEO had claimed. He also
claimed that the memo was
"discussed at the bargaining
table at least once during Oc-
tober and November."
MORAN admitted "that most
of the bargaining team was
aware of the memo on Sept. 30."
He also admitted that the memo
"may have been in the Nov. 16
proposal." But he denied that
the memo was ever discussed
before Nov. 17, and said all
charges of lying were "unfound-

According to DeCrow, NOW
will make a special request to
the Carter administration to sup-
port their cause. "We will ask
Carter to go on TV and say how
embarrassing it is to be Pres-
ident of a country with sex 6s-
crimination," DeCrow said. She
explained that while President
Carter is an advocate of the
ERA, he has been known only
to express his support when fac-
ing women's organizations.
DeCrow confronted objections
to the changes the ERA will
bring about. She blasted charges
that the proposed constitutional
amendment will force every wo-
man to go out and get a job, re-
ferring :rimarily to a woman
who might choose to be a house-
DeCrow said women should be
eligible for the draft: "Woman
should have equal obligations to
secure that there is no war, or
no draft. or equally participate."
The possibility is good that the
ERA will be ratified in several
states, such as Florida, Okla-
horna, North Carolina, and Mis-
zsoliri, according to DeCrow. It
lwas recently defeated in Nev-
ada, where DeCrow said, "The
Mormon church was the most
powerful force (in its defeat)."
"The most horrible part to me
is women fighting against their
own equality . .. people are ter-
rified of cbange. I always
thoaht it was embarassing to
discuss and vote on a person's
h'man rights."
TO TLLUSTRATE the need for
en1al rights DeCrow cited sev-
erql examples of sex discrimin-
ation in such places as segre-
Pated countrv clubs, where wo-
men must ralinoiiish their use of
a tennis court if a man wants
to use it.
She told another story about a
high school home economics
class, in which girls had "to

forms." To the amused but
skeptical audience, D e C r o w
