A University faculty group
has released a report calling
for an average 11.5 per cent
pay raise for its colleagues
next year - and will attempt
to convince the Regents tomor-
row that putting more money
into the pockets of professors
might not be a bad idea.
The report, prepared by the
Committee on the Economic
Status of the -Faculty (CESF),
concludes that boosting faculty
paychecks is essential if the
University desires to maintain
a level of academic excellence.
"IF WE WANT to maintain
a high quality faculty," assert-
ed CESF chairman William
Neenan, an associate professor
of economics, "we have to
make some efforts to keep themr
here. So our salaries have to
be competitive."
What the faculty considers
competitive, however, could re-
sult in hardships for a Univer-
sity segment keenly aware of
rising numbers - the students.

Speech to reveal tax
and anicmeplans
By Staff and Wire Service Reports
Before the campus settles into the doldrums of
serious studying, one more hectic day is in store, as
President Gerald Ford kicks off his election campaign
here tonight.
The President will speak before a crowd of over
14,000 students, faculty members, and others at 7:30
Y,.m. in Crisler Arena.
WHILE THE PRESIDENT promised yesterday only that his
speech will contain a few "surprises," administration sources
told UPI that Ford will unveil plans for easing home-buying
and for battling neighborhood crime.
The sources said Ford will announce plans to help persons
earing $9,000 to $14,000 a year buy a home and propose giving
higher income persons a tax credit if their house payments
are more than 20 per cent of their incomes.
Also, the President will reportedly propose stiffer penalties
as an anti-crime move - especially for persons committing
crimes with guns and for "repeater "criminals."
that Ford's Ann Arbor speech would include "new domestic
proposals," but another Ford staff members said:

"The man has inserted a
page in his speech but the sub-
ject of that page is a cross-
my-heart-hope-to-die secret."
Prior to his speech, Ford will
meet with a group of 20 stu-
dents selected by MSA Presi-
dent Calvin Luker for a ques-
tion and answer session. This
group, comprised mainly of
leaders of various campus or-
ganizations, will have half an
hour to fire questions at the
President before he leaves for
a private residence that has
not yet been announced.

The United Auto Workers
(UAW) last night declared
a midnight strike against
the Ford Motor Co. after a
collapse in contract nego-
tiations. The walkout, sec-
ond in nine years against
Ford, will idle 170,000 Ford
workers in 22 states.
UAW President Leonard
Woodcock announced the
strike at a press conference
six hours before the mid-
night deadline, saying the
company had not respond-
ed to union proposals de-
spite its "strong financial
HE SAID union bargainers
throughout the country had been
sent home and negotiations
would not resume until next
Monday at the earliest.
"We will work toward the
shortest possible strike," Wood-
cock said. Both he and Ford
officials declined to speculate

how long the strike might last.
Economic analysts say a strike
of less than four weeks would
have no serious impact on the
nation's economy.
Industry observers said the
fact that negotiators left six
hours before the deadline indi-
cated the two sides were far
apart and the strike could last
longer than the two weeks
thought to be the minimum in
the auto industry.

"We're not going to go
through any charade, staying
until midnight, there's nothing
magic -about that," a somber
Woodcock said in his brief ex-
change with reporters.
Ford was selected as this
year's strike target prior to ne-
gotiating in an attempt to force
a pattern - setting agreement
for the industry.
Citing the company's record
profits of 770 million dollars

during the first six months of
this year, Woodcock said Ford
"was in a strong financial po-
sition" to meet the union's pro-
posals for shorter work time,
higher wages and improved
fringe benefits.
vice president for industrial re-
lations, defended the conpany's
three contract proposals, say-
ing the last one, made vester-
day, was worth one billion dol-

lars over the next three years.
Earlier last night, pickets
from UAW Local 849 prepared
to stand a lonely vigil around
the Ford Motor Company's Yp-
silanti plant in response to the
strike call.
"The first night there will be
picketing, but after that there
will be no night picketing," ex-
plained Bill Leonard president
of Local 849.

Moynihian, Buckley
-in -i N.Y. primary
By The Associated Press
Daniel Patrick Moynihan, whose outspoken speeches at the
United Nations set the stage for his entry into electorial politics,
won New York's Democratic Senate nomination yesterday by
narrowly defeating the equally flamboyant Bella Abzug.
Elsewhere around the country, Sens. Edward Kennedy, Hu-
bert Humphrey and William Proxmire won primary contests
with little trouble. But Philip Noel, Rhode Island's controversial
governor, hovered on the edge of failure in his bid for a Sen-
ate seat.
MOYNIIHAN, WHO ENTERED the Senate race after quitting
his U.N. post, took a narrow lead early in the counting and
held it all evening over Abzug, who had criticized him for his
work with Republican administrations.
With more than 80 per cent of the precincts counted, he had
a 9,000-vote lead, or about 37 per cent to 35 per cent.
Trailing badly were the other three contestants: former
U.S. Atty. Gen. Ramsey Clark, New York City Council Presi-
dent Paul O'Dwyer and businessman Abraham Hirshfeld.

Mule athletes challenge



The University students have charged the Athletic
Department with reverse sex discrimination under
Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.
Under orders from Associate Athletic Director Vir-
ginia Hunt, Women's Varsity Volleyball Coach Sandy
Vong refised two students-Eric Stannard, a freshman
from Flint, and Rick Chad, a senior from Huntington
Woods-the opportunity to try out for the women's
team Monday at the Central Campus Intramural

"I like to follow my coaches in taking the position
that if an individual is ineligible to play under AIAW
rules, then he is also ineligible to tryout for the team
or to practice with it," Hunt said.
STANNARD, WHO SAYS he is interested in com-
peting on the same intercollegiate -level as women,
cited a clause from section 86.41(b) of Title IX in his
defense. The section states that educational institutions
rezeiving federal funds may provide separate athletic
teams for each sex if selection to those teams is based

explained that the Athletic Department provides the
women with: three to six, one-half grant-in-aid scholar-
ships per year; uniforms and shoes; transportation
fees; room and board away from home; and its own

no funds from the Athletic Department and their team
comes exclusively under the auspices of the Intra-
