plan to begin
The development of 60 acres
of land adjacent to a city park
into condominium apartment
buildings will soon begin de-
spite the objections of are a
residents and ecological groups.
In a vote April 19, City Coun-
cil removed the last obstacle
preventing the development of
a tract of vacant land next to
Bird Hills Park by rezoning the
area to permit the construction
of 250 luxury apartments.
Residents have threatened to
sue the city because develop-
ment of the land, they claim,
will cause irreparable ecological
damage to the area. Though
various groups pledged $90,000
towards the purchase of the
tract by the city as an addi-
tion to the park, the city's es-
timate of money needed to buy
the land increased beyond the
original appraisal.
The $90,000 was originally be-
lieved to be the amount neces-
sary to comprise a quarter of
the purchase price of the land.
City officials said earlier if cit-
izens could raise this amount,
the city would contribute an
equal amount, with the remain-
ing half of the $360,000 total
coming from the-federal govern-

estimated that the cost of the

Interns, residents'and post-
doctoral instructors at the Uni-
versity's Medical Center com-
pleted the final step in becoming
the first group of unionized in-
terns at a university last week
by approving an official bar-
gaining unit.
The Interns and Residents As-
sociation (IRA) was approved as
the official union for the group-
all of whom have student status
yet are employed in a profession-
al capacity by the University.
The University had opposed
IRA's year-old drive for union-
ization in the courts, maintain-

ing that interns are not really
employes of the University, but
instead are involved in a train-
ing program with a status simi-
lar to students.
The Michigan Court of Ap-
peals had previously denied a
request by the University for a
stay of last week's election,
which was conducted by the
Michigan Employment Relations
Commission (MERC).
But while the Court refused to
block the election, it has agreed
to give immediate consideration
to the University's request for a
review of an earlier MERC de-
cision concerning the IRA.

SA CUA elects new chairman

Psychology Prof. Warren Norman has
been elected chairman of the Senate Ad-
visory Committee on University Affairs
(SACUA), the top faculty body.
Norman, elected by SACUA members
April 21, succeeds history Prof. Gerhard
Weinberg, who recently resigned the post
to take a year's sabbatical leave.
In his new position, Norman will also
head Senate Assembly, the faculty repre-
sentative body, and the University Senate,
which includes the entire faculty.
Norman has been a University faculty
member since 1957 and a m e m b e r of
SACUA for the past one and one-half
years. He is a member of various profes-
sional and scientific organizations and is
currently president-elect of the Society of
Multivariate Experimental Psychology.
"I think faculty government in the form

of the Assembly and SACUA has worked
very well," Norman says. "I'd like to see it
continue to do so as it provides a mechan-
ism in which both long-range and current
concerns of the faculty can be processed
in an orderly way."
"If the system can be enhanced, that's
fine, but I don't have any specific pro-
grams to change (the government) at this
juncture," he adds.
Norman says one of the primary issues
Senate Assembly and SACUA will consider
this spring is the question of whether
classified and military research should con-
tinue at the University,
Last March, following a week-long fac-
ulty-student campaign against classified
and military research, which 'included a
fast by about 50 faculty members, Senate
Assembly declined to act on several pro-
