Regents hear tenure review intervention request

(continued from Page 1)
"WHEN TO DO nothing is to do
something, the Regents will have to do
something," he told the Board.
Livermore, a former SACUAa
chairman, said he was disturbed by the
Marwil case, and added that the depar-
tment's decision was made within days
of the date a tenure review would have
become mandatory.
Livermore also said only two in-
dividuals thoroughly appraised Mar-
wil's work.
IN REVIEWING the consequences of
the Regents' decision, Livermore said,
"There is going to be hurt. There has
been blood let over this case already."
He said many people are outraged
over the decision not to review Marwil's
tenure, and the sense of pride, and well-
being of those who made the decision
would be hurt.
"There are going to be costs in either
event," Livermore said, "but I feel
very strongly this ought to be
reviewed."
IN OTHER ACTION, Vice-President
for Academic Affairs Harold Shaprio
reported the status of the budget and
state appropriations.
Shapiro said the University has some
indication it will receive $2.5 million
more than Gov. William Milliken's $11.1
million proposal. The University
requested a $24.2 million appropriation
in October.
He also said an increase "would
enable us to meet our objectives," but
that the executive officers still were
scrutinizing the budget carefully.
IF THE STATE increases the
University's appropriation and cuts are
made within the University's budget,
Shaprio said, it is likely tuition charges

wouild be somewhat below the rate
schedule adopted by the Regents in
April.
Shapiro and Interim University
President Allan Smith were cautious
about expressing optimism, however.
Smith reported on the status of
negotiations for approval of the new
Unviersity Hospital proposal by the
Michigan Department of Public Health
(MDPH).
THE REGENTS authorized Smith to
seek another 30-day delay in the plan-
ning process, which pushes ahead the
deadline for MDPH approval to August
8.
Dr. Hermann Ziel, chief of the Health
Care Administration bureau of the
MDPH, said Tuesay in Detroit the MD-
PH would approve the hospital plans,
but only under certain conditions.
Smith said the University will receive

a letter explaining the conditions for
MDPH approval.
ZIEL AND CHIEF University
Hospital planner Douglas Sarbach an-
noucned Tuesday that the University
had agreed to cut $3 million from the
hospital plans, originally projected to
cost $254 million.
They also said the University had
agreed to cut the number of beds plan-
ned for the new hospital from 923 to 900,
and had agreed to investigate further
any probably staff increase iri the new
hospital.
Smith and the Board of Regents ex-
pressed concern over negative
publicity surrounding the new hospital
planning process.
SMITH SAID the University had
followed the planning process
"meticulously." He called charges that
the University had avoided criticism

from regional health care planners "in.
correct."
Also during the public comments
session, 'Bob Milbrath, president of
Rackham Student Government
discussed the need for day care for
graduate students. University student
Steve Ruskin spoke of his concern for
the Michigan Student Assembly (MSA)
elections and student representation.
The Regents met in executive session
last night to discuss a potential
presidential candidate. The potential
candidate has requested confiden-
tiality.
The monthly meeting will continue at
9 a.m. this morning.

ONE KILLED, ELEVEN INJURED:
Argon gas pumped into nuclear plant

%-Ill %-- AL AL

(Continuedffrom Page1)
Argon is not a toxic gas but can be an
"asphyxiant" because it replaces
oxygen, the utility said. The workers
who were overcome suffered oxygen
deficiencies, Lein said.
Killed in the accident was Don Kin-
sala, 54, of Midland, the Babcock &
Wilcox site engineer. He died of
multiple injuries, possibly in a fall from
scaffolding within the 28-foot-deep tank,
utility officials said.
HOSPITALIZED were Sheldon
Mann, 54, of Midland, and Robert
Young, 49,'of Sanford. Both men were
Bechtel safety representatives, Con-
sumers said.
Mann, who suffered chest pains after
breathing the gas, was in serious con-

dition. Young, who suffered gas
inhalation and a fractured arm, was in
fair condition, hospital officials said.
The incident began when Kinsala and
a site manager went in to inspect the
tank. Kinsala was overcome by the gas,
as were several employees who rushed
to his aid, Consumers said.
OTHER WORKERS then entered the
tank to rescue the stricken men but also
were overcome, Consumers said. They
finally were aided by additional em-
ployees who entered with respirators.
Construction work had been halted in
the area where the accident occurred
while utility officials investigated the
accident, a Consumers spokesman
said.
The Midland plant, scheduled for

completion by 1982,,will have a total
generating capacity of 1,300 megawat-
ts.
