S. African firms
following 'U' policy

BY JOHN SINKEVICS
University Vice-President and Chief
Financial Officer James Brinkerhoff
said yesterday that he has met with
representatives from G.D. Searle and
Company, and that he is satisfied that
they are complying with the Regents'
South African policy. Searle is one of
two firms doing business in South
Africa from which the Board nearly
divested last month.
Brinkerhoff reports that "in general,
their (employment) policies (in South
Africa) are in line with the Sullivan
Principles and the University's stance
on the issue."
The Sullivan Principles include en-
dorsement of desegregation of working
facilities, equal and fair employment
practices, and equal pay for equal work
in companies doing business in South
Africa.
IN ADDITION, University Counsel
Roderick Daane said his report to the
Regents on alternatives to divestment
will not be completed in time for next
week's Board meeting. However, he
said a status report outlining the finan-
cial considerations of such alternatives
actions will appear on the May 17-18
agenda.
Representatives from Black and
Decker Manufacturing Company - the
other company whose employment
practices in South Africa have been
questioned by the University - have
not met with University officials,
although Brinkerhoff said such a
meeting is being arranged. A report
analyzing results from this planned
discussion will be presented to the
Regents at their June meeting, accor-
ding to Brinkerhoff.
IN MARCH 1978, at the request of the

Regents, 47 letters were sent to cor-
porations in which the University is a
stockholder asking the companies to
define their commitment to the Sullivan
Principles and endorsement of
"political, economic and social rights
for all of the corporations' employees in
South Africa."
All but two of these corporations -
Searle and Black and Decker -
responded in what the University said
'Basically, I now feel
Searle has an equiva-
lent policy to the Sulli-
van Principles.'
-James Brinkerhoff
University
Vice-President
was a satisfactory manner.
Searle and Black and Decker gave
tardy responses, and initially
Brinkerhoff recommended the Regents
prudently sell common stock shares of
both companies.
However, at the April Regents
meeting, Brinkerhoff suggested the
University only divest from Black and
Decker, whose response to University
inquiry was vague and did not indicate
that the corporation had "within a
reasonable period of time taken
reasonable steps to effectuate the pur-
poses" of the University policy, as is

Correction
In an article in yesterday's paper, Mayble Craig,

nursing at University Hospital, was quoted as
saying she doesn't have problems as a minority.
