Contract settlement
The International Union of Operating Engineers
yesterday ratified a new 18 month contract with_
the University. The union, which is the smallest of
seven campus unions, represents the 40 heating
plant engineers and boiler operators. The ratifica-
tion follows eight weeks of bargaining and the new
contract is retroactive to April 1. The settlement
gives the union members an across thetboard 20
cent an dour wage increase with additional in-
creases this year and April next year. This boosts
the average wage, as of April 1 to $6.48.
We envy DJs and news announcers a radio sta-
tions. Unlike us print media folk, they never have
to worry about misspelling names. Take WRCN's
John Sloss, for example. While John may have to
watch his pronunciations every now and then, he
probably never screws up names as badly as we
did yesterday. Our profile of him used two dif-
ferent spellings for his last name, neither of which
were even remotely close to the real thing. And
on our Arts Page, we unflinchingly changed Hop-
wood winner Cindy Leigh Hill's middle name to
Lee. We extend sincere apologies to both.
Why you're dumb
Sagging precollege SAT scores have been blamed
on television, permisiveness, and increases in fe-
male enrollment - everything, it seems, except
actual stupidity - but a University psychology
professor believes the real reasons are all in the
family. Dr. Robert Zajonc said Wednesday that
a 12-year study of the scores shows individual in-
telligence levels decline with increased family
sizes and that children born early in a family
score higher on the tests than later siblings when
the intervals between births is relatively short. He
also concluded that long intervals between births
enhance intellectual growth - especially for first-
borns - but that an only child and the last child
born into a family are both at an automatic disad-
vantage. It's because children born between 1947
and 1962 have generally tended to be stuck in dis-
advantageous family configurations that the scores
are heading downward. Zajonc says the trend
should continue until 1980. Aren't you glad it's not
your fault?

Postal "service"
Pity the poor U. S. Postal Service. None of the
gimmicks they've proposed for saving money
seems to have caught on. No one liked the three-
day-a-week delivery plan. No one like the most

recent increase. So take a guess at public reaction
to their latest bright idea: The Postal Rate Com-
mission yesterday recommended letter envelope
sizes be standardized, so the P. S. machines can
sort and route them at less cost. If the regulations
are adopted, mailers would have to pay a sur-
charge for oversize envelopes (like greeting cards)
and undersize envelopes (invitations, perhaps, or
other small notes) would be banned. If the postal
Service Board of Governors approves the plan, it
could go into effect in two years. Better send your
protests in now so they'll get there by then - if
you're lucky.

MOSCOW - Yelena Sak-
harov, the wife of Nobel
Peace Prize winner Andrei
Sakharov, said yesterday
she and her husband were
beaten by Soviet police
who detained them during
the trial of a dissident in
the Siberian city of Omsk.
Moscow friends of the
couple said she confirmed
that they had been tem-
porarily detained Wednes-
day as well as yesterday.

Yesterday it was for less, but
they beat us."

rather than stay in Moscow
for his friend's trial because he

Thitu int' the tuories
Cecil Taylor, considered by many critics to be one of the most important pianist/composers in
jazz history, made his first Michigan appearance in seven years last night at Power Center.
He was recently voted Downbeat magazine's "Jazz Critics Hall of Fame."

An impassioned plea for pres-
ervation of Waterman-Barbour
gymnasiums marked the open-
ing session of the April meeting
of the University's Board of Re-
gents yesterday.
Kathy Gourlay, a student and
Program Analyst at the Uni-
versity Mental Health Research
Institute, presented a petition
of 1000 signatures to the Re-
gents asking that the Univer-
sity reconsider its plans to tear
down the red structure and use
the site for an extension of the,
Chemistry Building.
there is a large amount of stu-
dent interest in preserving the
gymnasiums. "We were only
trying for a few hundred sig-
natures," she said, "but within
a week we collected a thou-

sand." Eighty-five per cent of
those asked to sign did so, she
Gourlay's sentiments were
echoed by University Economics
Prof. William Shepherd who
added that the reasons original-
ly given to support demolition
of the two buildings were large-
ly unfounded. "There has been
no genuine feasibility study
either of Waterman-Barbour or
the whole site," he charged.
Shepherd contends that the
University has failed to consider
"all the creative possibilities"
with relation to the buildings,
and has ignored many features
which make them "large, attrac-
tive, living parts of this Uni-
versity's life and heritage."
TO SUPPORT his contention,
Shepherd presented a report
from Robert Neumann, an Ann

Negotiations over a racial
discrimination g r i e v a n c e
against the University have
been broken off by the Univer-
sity at the third stage, accord-
ing to official statements this
The grievance was filed by
black clerical' worker Ethel
Harvell against the Staff Bene-
fits Department - which the
union charged "has removed
(her) from her regular assign-

its negotiations

ments, given her disciplinary
job assignments," and "haras-
sed her."
AN APRIL 6 letter from the
University, however, claims
that the grievance, filed
through United Auto Workers
(UAW) Local 2001, "has not
been appealed to Step Three
within the contractually estab-
lished time limits . . . and as
such will not be considered for
a hearing at Step Three."
Step Three of a grievance is
a meeting between an aggriev-
ed employe, a representative of
the department charged with
contract violations, and the Uni-
versity bargaining committee.
The appeal, according to the
union's contract with the Uni-
versity, must be filed "with-
in the five calendar day period
following receipt of the step two

answer by the Chairperson of
the bargaining committee."
HELEN KELLY, a member
of the union's grievance nego-
tiating committee, called the
'untimely grievance' argument
"complete b.s." and said yes-
terday the time delay of near-
ly a month resulted from a
"breakdown of communica-
tions between the University

versity taking full advantage of

McCarthy hi~ts De-ms, GOP
Former Minnesota Senator E u g e n e McCarthy told a
receptive crowd of 300 in the Union last night that he is run-
ning for President as an independent candidate in order to
f .fprovide voters with an alternative to the two major parties.
He predicted that his name will appear on the ballot in 45
states in November-if he can raise some $300-400,000 and
get enough petition signatures in the next few months. Mc
. Carthy needs 17,600 signatures in Michigan.
HE ADMITS that a McCarthy victory would require "the
most significant (grass roots) movement of its kind in the
history of the nation," but argues that "the time has come
for a change" from past Republican and Democratic ad
Although the ex-senator has aged considerably in appear-
ance since 1968 when he made an unsuccessful bid for the
Democratic nomination as an anti-war candidate, his style
f. of campaigning has changed little. Featuring a mild man-
nered voice and a dry wit, McCarthy was extremely critical
-; l of the two-party system.
"The arguments against the two parties are rather obvious
when you considered the fact that one party nominated
Richard Nixon three times-and the other failed to stop him
twice," he said. "You'd think that he would be enough to
discredit a party for at least 20 years."
McCARTHY EXPLAINED that "the two-party system has
been accepted uncritically as if it were written on a tablet'
but that it might be "the worst of all possible systems."
"It seems to me it would be much better if we could
choose between four or five candidates" rather than be
forced to accept the Democrats and Republicans' selections.
He charged that the system "has been formalized into
Daily Photo by PAULINE LUBENS law" so that third parties and independent candidates are

CBS pres. defends
Schorr on CIA leak

CBS news president Richard
Salant, yesterday defended CBS
reporter Daniel Schorr for
leaking classified information
to both CBS and the Village
"He was a marvelous investi-
gative reporter," Salant said.
"Through his own sources he
got a copy of the Pike Commit-
tee report on the CIA, and he
reported on the contents of the
report on CBS news before it
was decided not to release the
full report to the public."
SALANT, HEAD of the na-
tion's largest television news
organization, defended Schorr's
action in a discussion with fac-
ulty and students of the Uni-
versity's journalism department
"One of the media's primary
functions," Salant said, "is to
serve as a watchdog of the gov-
Schorr was CBS correspon-
dent at the Pike Senate hear-

ings on the CIA. Through pri-
vate sources Schorr received
a copy of the committee's final
report and was loosely describ-
ing the contents during por-
tions of the network's news.
When the Senate voted
against making the report pub-
lic, Schorr turned a copy over
to the Village Voice -which pub-
lished the findings in Febru-
ary. He is now the target of a
Congressional investigation.
SALANT admitted there may
be some truth to the report
that the CIA had once recruited
CBS journalists to work with
the agency while still working
for CBS.
"There was a time when
some of our stringers and per-
haps some others on our staff
were working with the CIA,"
Salant said. "I have seen no
evidence that they tampered
with our stories. That wasn't
what they were in it for. They
saw us as a way to help them

law go unpunished because many tenants don't

reflect badly on us."
Wiser said that the methods of collection out-

practice in Ann Arbor because the tenants know
