women for key
'U execui ve post

For the first time at the Uni-
versity, a woman may be ap-
pointed to a permanent execu-
tive post. According to an in-
formed source, the names of four
women, including two blacks,
have been submitted to Presi-
dent Robben Fleming for the key
position of affirmative action
The officers will monitor t he
University's affirmative action
programs for minorities a n d
women. President Robben Flem-
ing is expected to make a final
choice by September from the
four recommended by a selection
The candidates include Carolyn
DeJoie, Eleanor Lewis, Virginia
Davis Nordin, and Natalie Tate.
Tate and DeJoie are black.
De Joie is the director of the
Human Rights Council at the
University of Wisconsin. She acts
as executive aduministrator of af-
firmative action programs for
the University system.
Lewis, an employe of the De-
partment of Health, Education
and Welfare (HEW), has worked
in HEW's Civil Rights Office
overseeing the affirmative action
programs of universities.
Nordin heads the University's
Commission for Women, the
watchdog of the University's af-
firmative action program.
Tate is the director for t he

Office of Equal Opportunity at
Wayne State University. H er
duties involve developing affirm-
ative action programs to deal
with discriminaticn against aca-
deunic and non-academic employ-
The selection committee. ac-
cording to Chairwoman Shirley
Pyke, interviewed "six or seven
people at most" before making
their choices.
HED's Revised Order No. 4 re-
quires that private federal con-
tractors appoint a single officer
to oversee affirmative action
plans. Since the University is a
public institution, it is subject
to the ''spirit" and not the "let-
ter" of the order, according to
John Hodgdon. director of HEW's
regional civil rights office.
But it is unclear whether t h e
appointment of an affirmative
action officer will mean the dis-
solution of the University's Com-
missions for Minorities and for
"The issue has not been re-
solved. It's still up in the air,"
says Pyke.
Fleming is not bound to choose
one of the recommended candi-
dates. Pyke says, "We have no
reason to believe our recom-
mendations won't be recognized.
but, on the other hand, we have
no reason to think that they'll
be final either."

Election results?
Area residents' next concern, after today's election results are known, will be how to remove all the
campaign paraphernalia from signs, windows, and telephone poles.

American and Vietnamese intel-

has suffered an estimated 70,000
casualties-30,000 killed and 40,-

to Quang Tri province last April

sources claim. Most losses have
been the result of American
B-52 and tactical bombings.
But during the same period,
an estimated 37,000 North Viet-
namese replacements have mov-
ed down the Ho Chi Minh trail
into South Vietnam or into
staging areas in southern Laos
and Cambodia, sources add. An
estimated 7,000 more NVA are
expected to come down from the
North by the end of July, as
compared to almost no move-
ments on the winding trail one
year ago.
American sources here esti-
mate that North Vietnamese
forces in and immediately
around South Vietnam totaled
120,000 at the outset of the
fighting last April. The same
sources say that between 80,000
and 100,000 NVA--with their
