"How many assistant pro-

A decline in the quality of
laboratory equipment has also
been a problem. Voltmeters, ca-

items have become increasing-

For example, he asked, "is
it better for a monkey to starve
in the wild or to live among the
riches of the University as a
cocaine addict?"
He added that in a strict

pushing the levers. "We don't

make them into 'junkies'," he
THE ULTIMATE purpose of
this research, according to
Woods, is to develop better
drugs and to find out more
about the process of addiction

He noted that "we are never
really sure how applicable our
findings are to humans, but this

certainly wouldn't be in favor
of using people for subjects, as
others have recently done."

Former clerical
leaders give up'
initiation fee fight
Members of the former bargaining team for the University
clericals have given up their fight to force union members to
pay a $20 initiation fee.
Information from UAW regional representatives prompted
the team's concession, explained Jean Jones, former head of the
UAW Local 2001 bargaining team.
"WE WERE told that it (the fee now being levied) would be
subject to change by whatever goes into the bylaws," said Jones.
The union's bylaws are its governing regulations.
Since contract ratification last August, the bargaining team
has presided over all union business in 'spite of opposition from
a group calling itself "Clercals for a Democratic Union" (CDU),
which has demanded that. regular officers be elected immediately
to head the union.
CDU accused the ex-bargaining team of violating union rules
and demanded that an elected bylaws committee be allowed to
set the amount of the initiation fee.
"THEY DECIDED to back off because it (the fee) has begun
to cause a lot of flack in the local, and because of a possible
suit," stated Caroyln Weeks of the CDU.
She cited the Landrum-Griffin Act of 1959, which states that
the amount of the fee must be voted on and approved by the
whole membership.
"We had hoped that we could have something (money) to
assist in getting us started-it (the fee) is one way to do it,"
explained Jones in defense of the fee.
She added that one regional representative indicated "that
maybe the international (UAW organization) wouldn't mind after
all." This also prompted the change in position.
JONES SAID that even before the membership meeting Sept.
28, "We (the bargaining team) knew the bylaws committee would
have to set the fee and ours would have to be a recommendation."
However, no announcement of that 'was made.
"There was no reason to announce it," explained Jones. "CDU
had spread that information around."
-But Weeks denied that CDU knew until yesterday. "We just
found out at a lunch meeting-she's (Jones) not telling the
truth," she said.

The resolIftionsalso empower
Congress to order the techni-

safety is jeopardized or they are
no longer needed there.
The technicians would have to
be volunteers and the resolution
would require President Ford
to report at least every six
months on what they are doing
and prospects for having tech-
