group discovered recently by an-
thropologists in the Philippines.
turn from the prop wash of a"
helicopter bearing members of a
government group who came to
study them.
The four Tasarays had crouch-
ed in the thicket with a hunter
from a tribe living near their
forest - the only man they said
they had ever known from out-
side - as a helicopter whirled
into a clearing. They had agreed
to meet what they called the
"giant bird" because the hunter
said it would bring a long-waited
god called Diwata.
All trembled and one nearly
fainted with fright as they step-
ped into the clearing to meet the
men from the Presidential Arn
cn Natienal Minorities. Its 34-
year old head. Manuel Elizalde.
Jr., a Harvard graduate who ha
spent seven years working with
minorities, greeted the Tasarays
with gifts, including rice, a metal
knife, and a flashlight.
They received Elizalde as Di-
wata.
Later. a member of the 24-
man tribe told the government
group through an interpreter that
the tribe had never seen a wheel
until last month, and that it had
no knowledge of fighting or wars.
They were uncertain even about
the moon because their rain for-
est hid it from view.

Grievance
procedure
is. changed

By P.E. BAUER
The applicability of a new
grievance procedure, designed
for use in cases involving dis-
rutes between the University and
its non-onion employes, will be
limited to cases of alleged dis-
crimmnatiOn.
The new limitations were
agreed upon yeaterdsv by repre-
sentatives of the University's
Woman's Comnission and the
Univ-r'ity executive officers.
T h e grievance precedures.
clrarn in by renresentatives of
the two grours. were originally
to be nsed in all disputes between
the Univer'ity and its non-union
staff.
University sources say that ap-
proval of the procedures by the
executive officers, appears to be
imminent. This would put the pro-
cedures into effect for a period
of one year.
Mechanisms for changing pre-
sent grievance procedures were
set in motion last January, when
members of the Women's Com-
mission cited "the inadequacy"
of University procedures used in
dealing with charges of sex dis-
crimination relating to the Uni-
versity's affirmative action pro-
gram.
That program was organized
by the University last year to
meet the demands of HEW, fol-
lowing HEW's suit against the
University on charges of sex
discrimination. HEW threatened
withdrawal of all federal con-
tracts from the University if the
demands were not met.
Significant changes in the
grievance procedure include a
change in the composition of the
committee which hears cases
involving University - employe
disputes. Under new provisions,
the committee would consist of a
member selected by the em-
ploye, one chosen by the dean or
administrative department head
concerned. These members would
select the third member of the
group.

grievance
procedure
In a letter to Sen. Philip Hart
(D-Mich. last month, Secretary
of the Department of Health, Ed-
ucation and Welfare (HEW) El-
liot Richardson expressed con-
cern over the grievance proce-
dure used in hearing the Cheryl
Clark case, the Daily learned
yesterday.
Cheryl Clark, a research asso-
ciate at the University Highway
Safety Research Institute, filed
a complaint with the University
in January alleging that a male
employe doing the same work as
she made $3,400 a year more
than she did.
University stated at that time
that the man was overpaid, and
denied her request for salary in-
crease. The salary differential,
said University spokesmen, was
not the result of sex discrimina-
tion.
The man's salary remained the
same as -it was.
Richardson stated in the letter
that, if his understanding of the
handling of the case was indeed
correct, "the procedure would not
appear to be a viable process
whereby the University can ful-
fill its obligations to affirmative-
ly ensure the equal treatment
of all employes regardless of
their sex and to eliminate the
continuing discriminatory treat-
nment of female employes."
HEW last year, threatened to
withhold federal contracts from
the University if it did not end its
discrimination against women.
With the acceptance of new
staff grievance procedures, pro-
jected to occur next week, all
cases involving alleged discrimi-
nation will be heard under a new
system.
The appeal of the Cheryl Clark
case will also be heard under the
new grievance procedures.

military, a government official
said yesterday.
South Vietnam has been get-
ting Food for Peace military aid
for many years. The program
was started in 1954 mainly to
provide an outlet for U.S. farm
surpluses and to help feed needy
countries.
Since that time South Vietnam
has received $806 million .worth
of U.S. farm products. Of that,
$611.2 million has been kicked
A back to the South Vietnam mili-
tary, under "common defense
arrangements".
The usual procedure is for
South Vietnam to pay for U.S.
commodities in its own currency.
About 80 per cent then is re-
turned to Saigon as a grant for
defense purposes. The remainder,
is available for U.S. spending in
that country.
War aid under Food for Peace
was used extensively by previous
administrations, t h e records
show. In 1966 more than $145
million was provided Saigon for
military purposes.
The use of Food for Peace mon-
ey for war purposes has prompted
heated debate in congress.
