DURING THE course of the meeting,
the Regents raised questions about the

specific allegations made by the two

Power included the athletic depar-
tment's responses to the allegations of
sex discrimination. Before yesterday's
meeting the women presented the
Regents with their replies to the depar-

disappointment that the issue had not
been resolved before the matter came
to them, and Regent Deane Baker (R-
Ann Arbor) was concerned that no one
had expressed the desire to "be in
athletics to win for Michign.. . or to win

for personal reasons."
In other actions, the Regents
authorized Smith to ask the Michigan
Department of Public Health (MDPH)
to postpone for 30 days its decision on
whether to approve plans for a new
University Hospital. The MDPH was to
have made its decision on the hospital
plans by June 8, in accordance with
state health planning law.,
After the meeting Smith said the
delay will allow the University more
time to consider changes in the plans
for a new hospital. On May 7, the MD-
PH told University officials to devise
proposals for scaling down the hospital
plans, or to face having the entire
project disapproved.
THE MEETING was held at the
University's Dearborn campus and,
consequently, the agenda included a
review of that campus. The two major
points of the review dealt with
academic support services for minority
students and an up-coming trip by
Dearborn campus students to the
People's Republic of China.
Students from that campus and
several Dearborn citizens also spoke
about campus planning, and their con-
cern for the preservation of the campus
area. The topics of concern discussed
ranged from too much campus growth,
to too much parking space.

During the public comments portion
of the meeting, the tenure case of
Political Science Prof. Joel Samoff
received a boost from two University
students. Later in the public comments
section of the meeting, Richard Cor-
pron, chairman of the Senate Advisory
Committee on University Affairs
(SACUA), requested that the Regents
take action on another tenure case (see
relatedstory, Page 1).
ANOTHER MAJOR area of criticism
concerned this week's certification of
the Michigan Student Assembly (MSA)
election by Vice-President for Student
Services Henry Johnson (See related
story below). At last month's Regents'
meeting, Johnson was given both the
authority to review the election and to
control student government funds.
Former MSA member Jim Sullivan

called the administrative action a "slap
in the face," and said it represented
"basic disregard for self-governance."
He also said that students would be un-
willing to accept "dictates of the ad-

President Fidel Castro, returning to
Mexico yesterday for the first timesin-
ce he was an exile 23 years ago, said he
did not come to ask for material goods,
but to "tighten the bonds of friendship"
with the oil-rich nation.
"We do not come to solicit anything
material nor to ask for oil or
gas ... but to satisfy the desire of
greeting you personally and bringing a
greeting from the Cuban people," the
boarded Cuban leader told President
Jose Lopez Portillo as he arrived.

In a brief arrival speech, Castro told
