Rines said that in 1972 he

saw "a giant back come up

"We're going to find some-

In 'echnology Review, Klein,
an underwater exploration ex-

search committees report to
explain the reason for the ex-
clusion. The dean or department
chairperson may then instruct
the search committee to include
a minority or female candidate
for an interview if appropriate.
Cohen noted that search com-
mittees had a tendency to only
consider applicants from t o p-
ranked, institutions. Here, he
said, a search committee must
look elsewhere and appraise
people in terms of their poten-
tial. "Committees must reach
out into other institutions and
areas to get the best," Cohen
added.
The report further suggests
that "Procedures for screening
of candidates shouldsbe the
same for all candidates for the
same position."
IT ADDS THAT all candidates
ahould have an oral interview
to discuss their research and
accomplishments in a seminar
open to students and faculty in
the department. Cohen added
that leadership opportunities
should be established within
various departments to enable
faculty members in line for
promotion to obtain experience.
Cohen noted that those who
hold administrative positions
can play an important role by
following the guidelines and
maintaining personal concern
about affirmative action. He
said he hopes Rhodes would
evaluate the report so further
action could be taken.
Cohen's LSA colleagues rais-
ed many questions. One facul-
ty member asked who would fi-
nance the search committees.
Cohen responded that the indi-
vidual departments could pay
for it.,
LSA Dean Billy Frye suggest-
ed that the oral interview might
be improper for assessing quali-
fied candidates and "would be
generating a problem." Cohen
said he felt that all candidates
would be screened carefully and
fairly.
A STRONG ARGUMENT was
raised by another faculty mem-
ber, who said, "We seem to
think there is a pool of well-
qualified candidates. I'm skepti-
cal of this:"
Cohen said "this point was
extensively discussed by the
committee," adding there could
be recruitment through the fi-
nancial aid department. 'The
committee also recognized that
candidates could be pooled from
smaller institutions.
Proposals for further ways to
increase the pool of candidates
were also offered. Associate
Dean of Economics, Eva Muel-
ler, suggested the search com-
mittees "look 'more at the best
women's colleges, such as Vas-
sar and Wellesley."

TOKYO - The Liberal-Demo-
cratic party (LDP), battered at
the polls in the wake of the
Lockheed and other scandals,
hung on to the government yes-
terday by persuading eight in-
dependents to join its ranks. But
the party still faced a stormy;
leadership fight and the need to
placate a maverick reform
group that won strong support
from the voters.I
The pro-American LDP lost:
its parliamentary majority for
the first time in 21 years in Sun-1
day's elections.E
HOWEVER, the conservative-1
dominated LDP's loss was little
comfort to the opposition Com-
munists, who lost 22 seats them-E
selves-the only opposition party
that failed to capitalize on the
Liberal-Democrats' problems.,
The biggest of those problems
was Lockheed, which came on
the heels of the alleged irregu-
lar financial wheling and deal-
ing and "money politics" that
forced the resignation of mil-
lionaire former Prime Minister
Kakuei Tanaka in 1974.c
Early this year, it was re-
vealed in U.S. Congressional
hearings that Lockheed hadx
shelled out more than $10 million
to boost sales in Japan, includ-
ing a reported $2 million in.
bribes to government officials. r
TANAKA AND two former
cabinet ministers and a dozenf
others, including prominent busi-I
nessmen have been indicted inf
the case. U.S. officials in Wash-
ington said they are confident
the LDP's poor showing will nott
affect Japanese relations with
the United States.
One official said relations be-I
tween Washington and Tokyo are'
based on "clearly conceived
common interests" which re-

awaited by former deputy prime
minister Takeo Fukuda, Miki's
main rival and seen as the man
likely to replace him.
To fill the chairmanships and
keep control of the 16 standing
committees in the lower house,
the LDP needs 271 seats-a
figure it can't reach even if it
signs up the remaining 13 in-

CAMF's Stewart Mandell 102.599.
Three MOVE members, An-
drea Beggs with 105.175, Dan
Browning with 105.502, and Vogl
with 128.395 took seats. Cam-
pus Coalition retained its two
seats in the recount as mem-
bers Brian Laskey and Blanche
Treice (half-year term) cap-
tured 106.651 and 92.542 votes.
Holland took the Voluntary
Funding Party's single seat
with 79.335.
THE CENTRAL STUDENT Ju-
diciary (CSJ) will certify the
election Thursday night.
Fowler said he had spoken
with one candidate, Rosenthal,
who lost his seat in the recount.
"He was disappointed but we
made a mistake and there was
nothing. we could do about it,"~
Fowler said.
Another loser, Chiaravalli said,
"I'm still trying to figure out
what happened. I'm sorry there
was this kind of mismanage-
ment."
Chiaravalli does not plate toI
file suit with CSJ over the mis-
take. "If someone else had the
votes, I'm not going to finagle
any for myself," he said.

"They must see some visible

A RESOLUTION which would
have called for a referendum on
creation of an expanded city
assessment board was pulled
from the Council agenda at the
last minute by Mayor Albert
Wheeler, its sponsor.
Under the terms of the reso-
lution, city voters would be
asked in April to decide whe-

nary citizens and members of
organizations which have no
power to levy taxes (such- as
the University.)
Another resolution, calling for
approval of the proposed master
plan for Dolph Park - to be
located at Sister Lakes near
Jackson Road - was also ta-
bled, after requests from local
conservationists. Members of
the Sister Lakes Conservation
Association appeared before
Council to ask that a decision
on the plan be delayed until the
group has time to iron out some
last few differences it has with
the city Department of Parks
and Recreation.

DAY OF RE-COLLECTION
at CANTERBURY HOUSE,
This will be an opportunity for people to look back over the past
year or so-to see where the meaning has been in their lives and
where they might be going.
Ken Feit, an itinerant fool, and Andrew Foster, the chaplain of
Canterbury, will present some ways of looking at ourselves and some
ideas about personal meaning and its social consequences.
You are invited to join us on Saturday, December 11th beginning at
10 'a.m. at Canterbury House, 218 N. Division St., the corner of
Catherine and Division. A simple lunch will 'be provided and we
will end about dinner time. Please call us in advance at 665-0606 to
let us know you will be coming that day.

THE FOUR HUNDRED BLOWS
(Francois Truffaut, 1959)
AUD. A, 7 & 9
In 1957, a young film critic named Truffaut was banned from
the Cannes Film Festival. In 1959, the same Truffaut won the
Director's Award with this beautiful film of a boy unloved and
unwanted at home who withdraws to a private, then fugitive
existence. The film's ending is one of the most cherished in
cinema. "A cinema that brilliantly and strikingly reveals the
explosion of a fresh, creative talent. . .. Here is a picture that
encourages a refreshment of faith in films."-New York Times
