A Jewel of a choice
Jewel Cobb, the black woman educator who was
the focal point of last year's controversial search
for a literary school (LSA) dean, will become dean
of Rutgers' Douglass College effective July 1.
Cobb, a Chicago native who is now a zoology pro-
fessor and dean of Connecticut College, will assume
the sixth deanship post in the 58-year history of
the women's school in New Jersey. Last year, the
University offered Cobb a two-year, no-tenure
deanship post which she turned down amid fiery
debate centering on the University's compliance
with affirmative action guidelines.
Passing up the pucks
Some dorm residents refused to eat the grilled
chopped round and shrimp creole the University
had planned for dinner last night and fasted so
the money saved could be allocated to the United
Farm Workers (UFW). Although Martha Cook and
the Lawyers Club did not participate in the fast,
Alice Lloyd Hall shut down its entire meal service
and East Quad only served one fifth of its residents.
David Super, local UFW director, estimated 3500
students agreed to sacrifice the University cuisine
for the benefit of the farmworkers' organizing ef-
forts in California and elsewhere.
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Pom-pom girls will once again grace the Uni-
versity football field starting in September. Pat
Perri, advisor to the female cheerleading squad,
said that ten women were picked Thursday on their
ability to do cheers, pom-pom routines, mounts,
jumps and perform original routines. "The tryouts
were quite stringent," Perri said. Male cheer-
leaders will be picked sometime next week, and
interested persons can attend after-dinner work-
outs in the IM gym. Perri suggested that "they
know something about what they're doing, and be
able to do flips and routines on and off the mini-
tramp." So get bouncing.
Who ever said that?
To put an end to rumors, workers at the Com-
munity Center on E. William insist that the build-
ing has locked its doors only temporarily. The
Center, which houses the Community Switchboard,
Ozone House, Creative Arts Workshop and Drug
Help services, will re-open Monday. The building
is closed this weekend while staff members meet
to discuss and re-evaluate the goals of their pro-
grams. Although the building itself will be closed
to walk-in clients, staffers will remain on duty
throughout the weekend to handle any phone calls.

The University bargain-
ing team yesterday walked out
of a negotiating session with
the Graduate Employes Organi-
zation (GEO) for the second
time in a month.
The University was protesting
the presence of three faculty
observers the union invited, and
- demanded that future sessions
be closed tothe public until
ground rules can be set.
GEO DEMANDED that all
meetings be open. When they
refused to clear the meeting of
observers, t h e administration

Mandatory funding for student
government was turned down
and campus recruiting by the
CIA and NSA was approved in
Michigan S t u d e n t Assembly
(MSA) balloting this week.
The mandatory funding re-
quest (Proposal I), defeated
1,436 to 1,341, would have con-

"We're not going to schedule
another sesison until they're
willing to meet in private," said
John Forsyth, chief University
HE INSISTED the administra-
tion would not agree to open
bargaining, although it is not
opposed to it on principle. The
University, however, demanded
that either side be able to un-
ilaterally close a bargaining ses-
sion for any reason.
GEO wants open bargaining
unless both sides agree to close
it. Spokeswoman Aleda Krause
said the issue is "whether a
public University should have
something to hide from the
Forsyth, however, pointed out
that the union, not the Univer-
sity, asked for closed sessions
during last year's bargaining.
GEO spokespersons called ad-
ministration insistence on the
unilateral ability to close bar-
gaining a deliberate attempt to
break the union.
THE UNIVERSITY is prepar-
ing contingency plans if GEO
strikes when their contract ex-
pires Sept. 1. They claim to be
confident that they can last "in-
definitely" without the services
of the teaching assistants.
Observer John Broomfield, a
history professor, said, "I was
both surprised and disappointed
that my presence in the room
provoked an immediate walkout
by the administration team.
"I found it rather amusing
that the administration assumed
me to be an agent of the GEO
rather than a member of the
University community seeking
information," he added.
Observer and philosophy pro-
fessor Frithjof Bergmann said
he attended the session in or-
der to neutralize the adminis-
tration's use of University com-
munications "to distribute false
THE PRESENT contract calls
for a "good faith effort" to
reach an agreement by the end
of this month. However, it
seems unlikely that the deadline
will be met.
The GEO then must decide
whether to negotiate during the
summer, when many of their
members leave town.

PEKING-A fierce campaign against China's deposed Vice
Premier Teng Hsiao-Ping intensified yesterday with the appear-
ance of wall posters demanding his death.
Street parades in Peking and a huge rally in Shanghai were
staged to celebrate the dismissal of Teng and the appointment of
Premier Hua Kuo-Feng to replace the late Chou En-Lai as party
first vice chairman and heir apparent to the aging Mao Tse-tung.
THE COMMUNIST Party newspaper said millions rallied yes-
terday across the country in support of the nation's leadership

posters declaring '"Hang the Culprit Teng" and "Down With
Teng." Whether the posters had been officially approved was not
Informed sources said Shanghai factories were closed .and
some areas barred to foreigners as about 200,000 people turned
out for the mass rally.
TALL, BESPECTACLED Foreign Minister Chiao Kuan-hua led
one of the groups that took to Peking's streets to voice support
for Premier Hua and hail the downfall of Teng, branded by top
leftists as a "capitalist roader."
The Foreign Minister led 700 of his department's officials down
the main Avenue of Eternal Tranquillity. In the same group were
Vice Foreign Minister Wang Hai-Jung, reputed to be a niece of
Chairman Mao, and Huang Chen, chief of the Chinese liaison
office in Washington.
City residents contacted by telephone reported lukewarm
response to the demonstrations, which they said were -obviously
staged by the government among factory workers and members
of other institutions.

However, American sources
in Washington were anxious to
point out that the agreement
reached ii Moscow is tentative
and that there will be further
and perhaps very difficult ne-
gotiations necessary before a
final treaty is signed.
In Geneva, delegates to the
35-nation disarmament confer-
ence were also cautious about
the Moscow announcement. Am-
bassador W. H. Barton of
Canada said "I would like to
think it would set a precedent
for the Geneva negotiations but
am not sure it will. We have to
go a lot further if we want to
achieve a comprehensive nu-
clear test ban."

Woman unionist urges sisters' to
organize; emphasizes labor roles
SBy KAREN SCIiULKINS
One of Time magazine's 1975 Women of the Year yesterday
called on her 'sisters' to organize in an effort to gain a "more
meaningful role in the labor unions and in our society."
Addie Wyatt, Women's Affairs Director of Amalgamated Meat
Cutters and Butcher Workmen of North America in the AFL-CIO,
said working is a "bread and butter issue" for the many women
who must help support a family with or without a husband. Wyatt
spoke with a panel of women at the Michigan Union.
"WOMEN have no choice but to stand up and cry out and
speak for themselves," said Wyatt.
