Samoff says
progress of
appeal slow,
secretive

By JOHN SINKEVICS
Assistant Political Science Prof. Joel
Samoff said yesterday that even though
he feels the review of his tenure appeal
has not been "prompt and speedy," he
does not plan to file a lawsuit against
the University until the appeal
procedures have been completed.
"The courts usually expect you to go
through the internal channels before
they will consider your case," said
Samoff. "So unless something dramatic.
happens, I will wait until the appeals

procedures are finished."
SAMQFF FIRST discussed the
possibility of bringing suit against the
University with several attorneys in
February. At that time he claimed he
had a "substantial case."
Samoff, who has been denied tenure
twice, said he is unhappy with the slow
process of his appeal review and said
the Literary College (LSA) code
specifies such a procedure must be
prompt and speedy.
"After May 31, I will be officially off

the payroll of this University and I still
haven't been told anything about the
status of my appeal," said Samoff.
HOWEVER, Computer and Com-
munications Sciences Prof. Bernard
Galler, who is a member of the LSA
Executive Committee and chairman of
the committee reviewing Samoff's ap-
peal, said he thinks Samoff is aware of
the progress of the review.
"I don't want to talk with Joel,
through The Michigan Daily," said

Cellar
board
maintains
structure
By ELIZABETH SLOWIK
The University Cellar Board of Direc-
tors voted unanimously Tuesday night
to maintain the bookstore's current
managerial structure, culminating a
four-month battle with Cellar em-
ployees over structural changes.
"We decided at this present time, it's
in the best interest to maintain the
status quo," said Nelson Jacobsen,
board vice-president.
"WE LOOKED hard at performan-
ce," Jacobsen added. "We are running
extremely well. We know there's a
problem. Us proposing a structure
would be a time bomb."
Cellar employees vehemently op-
posed a hierarchical structure which
management tried to implement in
January. The Industrial Workers of the
World (IWW) Local 660, which
represents Cellar employees, has in-
sisted a new managerial structure be
discussed during contract negotiations.
The board and the store's management
have refused to negotiate structpre.
Contract negotiations began the first
week in April.
Cellar employee and union member
Fred Chase called the board's decision
a "defensive victory" for the IWW.
"We didn't get the change we were
looking for," he pointed out. "A lack of
clarity in decision-making still exists."
ACCORDING TO Jacobsen and

Read all about it
The Daily officially stopped publishing for winter
term last Sunday. What you're holding is an extra
edition of the paper we published to cover this mon-
th's Regents meetings. Free copies of this extra can
be picked up at all dorms, Graduate and Un-
dergraduate libraries, the Fishbowl, campus
recreation buildings, and all other major University
buildings. The Regents will meet again today and
we'll be putting out another issue tomorrow, which
can also be found in these same locations.
A nod is just as good
As negotiations between the management of the
University Cellar and the Industrial Workers of the
World (IWW) Local 660,. which represents Cellar
employees, slowly plod on, a side issue has cropped
up-sexism. A notice tacked on the bulletin board
near the time clock in the Cellar relates an incident
which occured during the Tuesday negotiating
session. The notice claims that Assistant Vice
President for Student Services and Cellar board

member Tom Easthope winked at and make a
sexist comment to a female member of the union
negotiating team. In response, several Cellar em-
ployees, who view the wink as a failure to bargain in
_good faith, composed a song, which includes these
lyrics: "But Tom's not quite as cute as he
thinks/Honey, honey/With sexist comments and his
winks . . . /If they don't negotiate seriously
soon/We may start singing another tune/About
striking, oh Baby mine." Easthope would not com-
ment on the incident.

On the outside*...
All those bronze bodies that have been lying out on
Palmer Field for the past few days may be disap-
pointed today as clouds incease. But even if they're
not as bronze, the bodies will remain hot and sweaty
as the temperature soars to a high of 71.
