"very intimidating," the women were
directed to meet with the same officials
again.
It is most unfortunate that these
women exhausted every available
channel to remedy the situation, and
then the University's highest body tur-
ned a deaf ear to their cries of
discrimination. The spirit of affir-
mative action has clearly not reached
the boardroom, even though laws man-

date compliance.
It appears that these women will now
be forced to pursue avenues outside the
university to receive fair treatment if
athletic department officials do not
listen. The logical and fair response to
Title IX should be a conscientious at-
titude toward sexism and racism.
Failure to adopt this frame of mind
may invoke other units of government
to respond with more restrictions. The
Regents may then wish they had acted
on these polite requests for parity.

the Regents must insist that at least those standards are upheld.
Information on South African policies of Black and Decker, and
G.D. Searle, a pharmeceutical firm, has not indicated fulfillment
of those principles. The Regents must also scrutinize reports on
such policies to ensure responsible decisions. They must not
swallow vague rhetoric, but instead question firms' commitments
to non-discrimination.
University Counsel Roderick Danne yesterday outlined alter-
natives to divestment to the Regents. But Mr. Daane's
suggestions are not acceptable because they do not extricate the'
University from firms supporting apartheid in South Africa. They
are nonetheless in the spirit of the type of close examination the
Regents should follow.
The Regents yesterday made an important move toward en-
ding the University's ties to companies which sustain the
deplorable apartheid system in South Africa. Advocates of South
African divestment have been criticized for not supporting
divestment from companies doing business in other countries
where discrimination, overt or covert, exists.
South Africa is just the first nation to be tackled by divest-
ment supporters. Divestment from Black and Decker is just the
first stage in the University's absolution of investments in firms
contributing to the oppression of the black majority in the
Republic of South Africa.
