While charges of sexism and
r a c i s m were being leveled
against University administra-
tors, Frye, undaunted, quietly
carried out his administrative
duties under the tenuous title of
acting dean.-
"I wasn't as shaken by the
whole affair as people suspect-
ed," Frye says in retrospect,
"I found certain moments dif-
ficult-times when I thought the
college was being torn up by it
all-but it wasn't very unpleas-
ant for me personally."
"IN FACT," he added, "I
kind of enjoyed the insecurity
of being the acting dean. If I
didn't do a good job,, it would
have been easy to rectify."
Admittedly apprehensive to
discuss the details surrounding
the deanship controversy, Frye
is more willing to outline his
plans for the future. While
acknowledging that s e v e r e
budget restrictions will create
his biggest administrative head-
ache, he saysheaviews that
problem as a "challenge."
"I don't mean to sound eup-
hemistic," said Frye, "but I
think we will be able to reallo-
cate our resources. What we
will have to do is develop an
extremely dynamic system of
"WE'RE GOING to be scrut-
inizing every program in the
college. But because most of
our departments are quite big,
it's far more likely that we'll be
looking at sub-programs within
the departments with more of
an eye to cutbacks," he said.

However, the administration

IF GEO WERE to' affiliate,
the union dues would go up to a
possible $18.00 a term. Many
GEO members are opposed to
such a raise.
Tyma said, "We will be pay-
ing apiproximately $25,000 a year
for affiliation."
"We will loss some control
over our destiny. We have a
strong position in affirmative
action which the MFT doesn't.
They say they will pay some of
GEO's arbitration costs but only
the ones they deem necessary.
This could work to our disad-
vantage. If GEO had the money,
we could spent it in our own
way," said Tyma.

Mindes said another drawback
to affiliation is that "local au-
tonomy' would be undermined."
IF GEO were to join MFT,
they would be one of the five
largest locals in MFT. Mindes
felt that this would give GEO a
considerable amount of power.
Mindes said, "They will only
give us help if we ask for it.
We have total control over
them. 'They can't exert any con-
trol over us."

dent. said, "It's hard -to say

When someone drinks too
much and then drives, it's the silence
that kills. Your silence.
It kills your friends, your
relatives, and people you don't even
know. But they're all people you
could save.
If you knew what to say,
maybe you'd be less quiet. Maybe
fewer people would die.
What you should say is, "I'll
drive you home." Or, "Let me call a
cab." Or, "Sleep on my couch
