"sham" contract offer, the two
administrators released a joint
statement defending their ac-

month brou-ha-ha began.
Fleming and Rhodes accused

THEY both maintained that
their decision to support Frye
over a highly qualified black
woman was correct in view of
his experience and outweighed
the necessity for affirmative ac-
tion.
"The real argument," said
Fleming, "is over whether ex-
perience can be allowed to play
and important role in the choice
when women and minorities
have, by; reason of our social
structure, been given fewer op-
portunities to acquire the ex-,
perience.

In addition, once all the evi-I

Fleming and Rhodes had used
their influence over the Univer-
sity through the tenure issue to
subvert the Regents' choice of
Cobb.
And in the end, the adminis-
tration took the easy way out.
The committee's report recom-
mended that the University do

THERE ARE SEVERAL day care centers like this one around the city. The centers provide
care workers, facilities, and, with their children in good hands, allow both parents to work.
However, often times the centers are expensive because the city provides few funds for their
upkeep. Last spring, voters turned down a proposal to provide centers with more funds be-
cause of a wording error in the amendment.

ATTORNEY General Frank
Kelley jumped in the heated
ring last March declaring, "This
proposed amendment is not con-
fined to one subject and accord-
ingly does not fully comply with
state law," and later refused ap-
proval of the ballot question.
Michigan law states, "Any . . .
proposed amendment shall be
confined to one subject."
However, Kelley's opinion did
not prevent the proposal from
appearing on the ballot as the
referendum received support
through voter initiative and
could only be thrown out in the
courts if passed by the people.

to accuse Murray of "conspir-
acy" for not giving a hearty
endorsement of the agreed on
contract.
Pointing out that the union
was twice assured b city nego-
tiators that the contract would
garner enough council votes to
pass, Valenti claimed that Mur-
ray publically endorsed the pact
after privately suggesting that
council members nix it during
the Monday night session.
Murray strongly denied the
charges, suggesting that Valenti
was merely using him as a
scapegoat to cover up for the
union leader's own procrastina-
tion in not filing for compulsory
arbitration in time to allow ap-
proved benefits to be retro-
active.
THE CURRENT police con-
tract expired on June 30, 1974,
and Michigan law commands
that unions file for arbitration
before their current contracts
expire in order to receive retro-
active benefits.
