sity finds money so fast. I be-
lieve he (Ford) is a document.
I believe in buying documents
for the library, but I don't be-
lieve in hiring them to teach."
Literary college (LSA) Dean
Billy Frye defended the invita-
tion to Ford, and said that ques-j
tioning Ford's qualifications
showed a "pretty narrow-I
minded point of view."
"SOMEONE who has been
President of the 'United States
certainly has something to of-
fer to students," Frye con-
tinued. "I don't think the ques-
tion here is whether he has the
n or m a l credentials of a!
scholar."
Prof. Harold Jacobson, chair-

man of the Political Science
department, also defended the:
invitation. "He's spent his life
in what we study," he said.
Jacobson said that Ford wouldj
not be teaching classes on a
regular basis, in class every?
day and grading student's work.
Jacobson does not see the ad-
dition of Ford to the faculty as
a strain to University funds.
Ford's salary, according to'
Jacobson, would not be compe-j
titive with the rest of the fac-!
ulty's salaries.I
Jacobson, hopes that Ford,
will contribute to both graduate
and undergraduate courses on
the presidency and Congress.
He also mentioned the possi-:
bility of Ford working in the
University's Institute of Public

Policy.
Meanwhile, the New York
Daily News reported in its
Thursday edition that the Uni-
versity of Maryland-Baltimore
County is taking steps to offer
Ford the school's chancellor-
ship.
