Silence is golden
During sports events a hush always falls on the
crowd when they anticipate some dramatic devel-
opment. The same happened in the University yes-
terday as department heads, deans and other per-
sonnel prepared for the administration's new re-
quest for a $1 million budget cut. Everyone con-
tacted indicated they did not know where cuts
would be made, saying they would have to wait
until they receive guidelines from the administra-
tion. The administration in turn is waiting for the
Regents to act on the request--and of course the
regents declined to comment until they were pre-
sented with the facts of the case. As best can be
determined the University may soon be up a
creek without a paddle or for that matter enough
Corn a la Cobb
Jewell Cobb may be a household name since it
attracted much publicity earlier this year, but
what was "J. Cobb" doing on a reserved plaque
in the Rackham parking lot? Had the elusive Ad-
ministration made another devious decision in the
deep dark recesses of Devious Decisiondom? Had
the Connecticut College educator finally found her
way into the comfort of our happy home? Alas, but
no. The parking place is reserved for one Jean
Danzer Cobb, development officer of the Gradu-
ate School. Jean won't have much need for her
parking place in the near future though. Her ag-
ing auto broke down Tuesday night and chances
of recovery look slim.
Viva la revolucion
The University usually keeps its nose out of revo-
lutions. But yesterday it found itself up to its neck
in the spirit of independence as the Spanish de-
partment celebrated the 165th anniversary of
Mexican freedom. The event was a day late but in-
ebriated students and faculty didn't seem to care
as they sipped wine, beer, and listened to music
while chatting in the language from south of the
border. The commemoration party was organized
by Walt Wilder as one of the weekly tertulia's
(social get-togethers). Over-imbibing linguists
could also indulge in (what else?) Fritos and cof-
Happenings . . .
. . seem to be popping up all over today. At
noon a Kathe Kallowitz etching exhibition will be
in the Pendleton room of the Union. Later, at 6:30,
the tenants Union will meet in room 4110 of the
Union. At 7 -the University's Journal of Social Sci-
ences and Humanities will hold an organizational
meeting in room 102 of the Econ building. If you
are good at being two places at once 7:30 is the
time for you. In the Union room 3L Paul Centel-
lela will speak about the Pine Ridge Reservation,
summer '75. Meanwhile in East Quads Tyler house
room 124 Men's raps will have a workshop on
liberation. If you still have energy left at this
point the Black Feminist Organization will meet
in Guild house (802 Monroe) at 8:00. And on this
day in history, in 1850 the fugitive Slave Act was
passed, imposing harsh penalties on anyone caught
aiding runaway slaves.
Blue law blues
Copenhagen concubines should best watch their
step. A court there has ruled that a policeman
can tell from the way a woman walks whether she
is soliciting or not. One woman -who wasn't walk-
ing the straight and narrow was fined $150. "This
is ridiculous," she said at her trial. "If police can
judge from a girl's way of walking whether she is
out to make business then they should arrest lots
of ladies all over town." Police can arrest women
for "taking up a- position" or for soliciting within
about 110 yards of their residence. But some of
the businesswomen protested that they were ar-
rested while waiting for a friend or shopping. One
nrostitute claimed the stiff fines only made it ne-
cessary for her to work harder. Well, that's the

way the Danish rolls.
Funny, she don't look .

Jordan to purchase
14 'Hawk' batteries
By AP and Reuters
WASHINGTON - The United States may give Israel
a battlefield missile system capable of delivering strikes
upon Cairo, the Aswan Dam and nearly every major tar-
get in Syria and Jordan.
Secretary of State Henry Kissinger confirmed at a news con-
ference in Cincinnati yesterday that the Administration has
"agreed to study" whether to supply Pershing missiles to the
Jewish state.


IN WASHINGTON, Israeli Defense Minister Shimon Peres said
a National Press Club appearance that his government is willing
promise not to put nuclear warheads on the missiles.

Liberty's litter
Nine Golden Retriever puppies snuggle up to their mother, Liberty, as President and Ms. Ford
along with their daughter, Susan, admire the litter. Betty Ford's press secretary said yesterday
one of the puppies will be donated to the Leader Dog School for the Blind in Rochester. The
first Family's dog gave birth last Sunday.

"If you want to, we shall give
such a guarantee," Peres said.
Only the Pershing delivery
system would be involved in the
proposed program. There has
been constant speculation that
the Israelis have developed their
own nuclear weapons. Israel's
government has neither con-
firmed nor denied it.
KISSINGER returned to Wash-
ingtonat mid-afternoon. Other
sources in the Capital confirmed
that the Pershing would be cap-
able of reaching most of the
major targets within the boun-
daries of Israel's hostile neigh-
Meanwhile, the Ford Admin-
istration yesterday prepared to
go ahead with a controversial
sale of 14 Hawk anti-aircraft
missile batteries to Jordan aft-
er assuring Congress that they
would not be used offensively.
The assurances satisfied the
leading Senate critic of the deal,
Clifford Case (D-N.J.), but were
bitterly criticized as inadequate
by opponents in the House of
UNDER A new law, Congress
could have blocked the $260 mil-
lion sale providing both Houses
voted to register an objection
by next Monday.
By allaying Senate objections
to the deal, President Ford cut
the ground from beneath oppon-
ents in the House.
But he said, "I must confess
that I'm still very unhappy over
this deal."
HE SAID the temptation to
use- the Hawk batteries for pur-
poses other than purely defen-
sive "may well, at some point
in the future, prove irresistible
to the Jordanians."
Another opponent of the deal,
Representative Benjamin Rosen-
thal (D-New York), called the
Administration a s s u r a n c e s
"meaningless and worthless."
He said the assurances were
not binding on King Hussein

12.4% BOOST:

The CESF report states the
University's assistant professors
are, by far, the highest paid
among leading institutions and,
according to Hymans, "very
close to the top in any group."
The University's associate
professors are also first, al-
though the lead is minimal com-
pared to other institutions.
However, CESF notes that at
the rank of full professor, "we
place only eighth on the list,
with a compensation level near-
ly 8.5 per cent below the first
place school (Harvard)."
FOR THIS reason, CESF has
allotted $1.9 million in its fac-
ulty compensation request spe-
cifically for bringing "the rela-
tive salary position of our full
professors to a level more ap-
propriate to the quality of the
university we wish to maintain."
These funds should also "pro-
vide our associate professors
with a somewhat firmer grasp
on the first place among our
quality peers," says CESF.

The RSC was a group of stu-
dents, headed by former Alice
Lloyd Residence Hall Director
Dick Munson, studying possible
ways to slash costs at the Uni-

According to Dan Bejesky and
Linda Lieberman, two former
committee members, Munson
determined that each dorm
dweller was assessed $2.05
through his room and board
costs to soak up the cost of the
room switch on campus. The
committee decided it would be
more appropriate to charge only
those students actually doing
the moving.
"IT'S MONEY saved," said
Lieberman. "Before, the Hous-
ing Office was putting out the
money, which was coming out
of my room and board. Now,
just the students doing the
changing are charged."

Markley Hall Director Leroy
Williams, who, along with the
other dormitory directors, was
involved in the decision to im-
plement the charge, does not
look at it that way.
He cites two reasons in sup-
port of the fee:
-To discourage moving; and
-To defray the administra-
tive costs involved in processing
a room change..
WILLIAMS adds: "I do know
that, for instance, last year the
amount of time my people were
putting in was worth more than
$5 per switch."
