Frye asks grade
grievance reform

Irvene Brawer, a former Uni-t
versity teaching fellow, last<
Friday was granted unemploy-<
ment benefits for the summer
of 1973 by Circuit Court Judge
Edward Deake.
However, Deake's decisionj
was not the landmark rulingc
that many TA's had hoped for.1
The court decided Brawer's1
case was specific, clear-cut and
did not need a broader ruling.j
DEAKE stated that in Braw-
ers' case, "a clear and decisive
line did not have to be drawn,"
thus still leaving the Univer-
sity administration as the only,
group who can legitimately de-
fine who is employed.t
Although Brawer was enroll-1
ed and working for the Univer-

wins benefits

sity, she was determined by
the court as employed because
did not fit into the second re-
quirement of the employment
statute since she was not "reg-
ularly attending classes."
Brawer said that she had en-I
rolled in a six credit indepen-
dent work program merely so
that she could teach at the
University and in fact had not!
started any kind of project for
the program.
ROGER CHARD, an attorney
for Washtenaw County Legal
Aid said that when the Univer-I
sity administration determined;
that Brawer was not employed
according to the statute, "the
University was taking advan-
tage of a good thing."
The statute, which the Uni-

versity argued was "clear and
unambiguous," was declared by'
the court to be "unconstitution-
ally vague."
The court determined that
"it's meaning and applicationj
could not possibly be under-'
stood by the person of common
intelligence, for said meaning
and application would be in
constant flux both within any
one university and among uni-
versities. And, of course, the
application would have no
checks against discriminatingj
Chard explained that because
Brawer was so obviously elig-
ible for unemployment benefits
the statute would continue to
be vague, and declared, "The
University will have to be more
careful in their decisions.''

Literary college (LSA) stu-
dents with a valid complaint
about a grade can expect to
receive fairer treatment if'
grievance revisions discussed
Monday's LSA faculty meeting
are adopted.
Although no resolutions were
passed at the sparsely attend-
ed meeting, Acting Dean Billy
Frye said that present grade
appeal procedures need re-
UNDER THE present system,
the instructor has the final word
in changing a grade. The in-
formal debate focused on a sug-
gested revision which wouldI
make departmental committees
the final authority.
Frye stressed that "students;
have the right to be protected
from capricious grading."
But he emphasized that any
new provision "does not sud-
denly erode the authority of the
faculty in grading.'
ACCORDING to Associate
Dean Charles Morris, capric-
ious grading is "at minimum,
grading unrelated to a stu-
dent's work.''
Some faculty expressed fears
that students may put pressure
on them to change grades for
invalid reasons.
Of the 21 grade grievance
cases last fall, 15 were decided
in favor of the students. In two
instances, the instructors would
not consent to a grade change,


American cuisine: A

beverages were common at all
meals, even breakfast, for
many early Americans.
There were few colonials, of
course, who could afford to eat

was due in part to the fact they
could be left to simmer un-

with ease.
Almost all foods were highly
seasoned and overcooked by to-
day's standards. A 1772 recipe.
entitled "To Ragout a Piece of,
Beef called Beef A-La-Mode,"
called for cooking a rolled up
buttock of beef containing spic-
es and green onions, then let-I

habits was that meat was far
tougher than today's fare. Be-
cause of the toughness of both
wild and domestic meat, re-
cipes often required the cook to
pound a cut of meat with an
ax handle or other implement to
soften its fibers.
Benjamin Franklin once turn-
ed his attention to the problem.
In a letter to two French scien-
tists in 1773, he described a
procedure for instantly produc-
ing tender meat by slaughter-
ing animals with a jolt of elec-
tricity. He admitted that the
procedure needed further test-

despite the findings of the de-
partmental committees.
"G R A D E appeals are not
frivolous," said Morris, "most
are substantiated."
Frye quoted from a letter re-
ceived in November from the
American Association of Univer-
sity Professors which came out
in support of students' rights in
grade disputes.
Also mentioned at the meet-
ing was the new budget, which
will be only 95 per cent of last
year's. Also it was suggested
that an A-plus be given a 4.3
honor point value.
Brown's Bob Farnham of Ando-
ver, Mass., played only nine
collegiate football games last
season but he led thernation
with a 6.2 yard average in
catching 56 forward passes for
a total of 701 yards. He scored
two touchdowns for Brown.
Steve Largent of Tulsa led in
vards with 1,000 in 11 games.
He also led in touchdowns via
passes with 14.
The San Diego Chargers were
13th and last in net offensive
yards in 1975 during their ac-
tion in the NFL's American
Conference. They averaged 243.6
yards per game.
