move fails im
18-19 decision
LANSING (P) - The s t a t e
Senate has, by one vote, killed
an abortion reform measure.
The 19-18 vote late yesterdayF
afternoon rejected a move by
supporters of abortion reform!
to reconsider an earlier defeat
of the bill.
Only 'a majority of those sen-
ators voting was required for re-!
consideration. The measure failed
to pass last week by a 19-17 vote.
Sen. Gilbert Bursley (R-Ann
Arbor), sponsor of the bill, said
he was disappointed but refused to
call the state Senate action a de-
feat. He noted that it had taken
the California legislature six years
to reform abortion law. This is
Michigan's third year.
Yesterday's vote was the third
in two years on abortion reform
in the state.
Sen. Lorraine Beebe (R-Dear-
born), who is the state's only
woman senator, charged the men
who voted againstvthe reconsider-
ation had been voting on their
personal moral convictions rather
than the wishes of their consti-
Bursley pledged to continue the
fight for abortion reform next:

area quiets.
Police called the situation at the Eastern Michigan Uni-
versity campus last night "relatively quiet," reporting only
a few scattered incidents of bottle throwing.
Eleven arrests were made, 10 for violating the curfew
imposed by Gov. William Milliken, raising the number of
arrests to over 150.
EMU spokesman Curtis Stadtfeld said in a radio broad-
cast last night that students arrested for charges larger than
violation of the curfew will be suspended, and those charged
with violation of curfew will be put on probation. Dean of
Students Thomas Aceto said later the decisionf was "not

suspension of seven students Wednesday, finally shouted him down and then moved into the down-

gas. Later yesterday, Ohio Gov. James Rhodes ordered more than 1,000 National Guardsmen into
Athens but said they would not be used unless called in by the university administration.

President Harold Sponberg re-
affirmed his commitment to keep

"The University cannot be sac-

Economic report on

A report on the economic status of the faculty, including
for the first time specific recommendations on faculty com-
pensation, has been approved by Senate Assembly.
In the past such reports have been statistical surveys

According to law Prof. Stanley Siegel, chairman of As-
sembly's Committee on Economic Status of the Faculty, the
change was made because of "a catastrophic falling off of the
economic status of the profession."
Siegel said the committee believed the specific recom-
mendations could be helpful by serving "a valuable function
in communicating faculty de-
sires to the administration."

report was not a move toward

making various charges against
County Prosecutor William Del-
hey, Sheriff Douglas Harvey, and
District Judge Henry Arkinson for
their conduct in handling the
EMU student arrests.
The petition charges Arkinson
with not allowing the arrested
students their right to post 10 per
cent of the bond and with setting
unreasonable bond. Instead Ark-
inson would allow posting the 10
per cent only if Delhey approved
Delhey is charged with impeding
the setting of reasonable bond and
Harvey with interfering with the
right of those arrested to have
phone calls "and otherwise exer-
cise their constitutional rights."
Arkinson has set $1,000 bail for
those charged with the misde-
meanor of violating the curfew.
Students charged with felonies
have received up to $2,000 bail. A
spokesman for the Ypsilanti Legal
Services said that the usual bail
for curfew violations is $50 or 30
days in jail. She added that maxi-
mum is $500 or 90 days in jail.
Most of the 48 arrested Wednes-
day evening, primarily for violat-
ing curfew, were arraigned in court
yesterday. Charged with violating
the curfew, they pleaded guilty
to the charge, and received a sen-
tence fining them $50 or 30 days
in jail.
Many of the students complain-
ed that they had not had time to
reach an attorney before the ar-
raignment, and pleaded guilty on-
ly because it was cheaper than
raising the necessary bail of pre-
ferable to waiting out the time
for a trial in jail.
"Most of the students were con-
fused, and had not seen counsel
before they appeared before the
judge," said Defense attorney
Peter Steinberger. "Either the
sheriff didn't allow them phone
calls or they didn't have someone
to call."

to organize
Members of the University Em-
ployes Union began taking pre-
liminary steps this week to or-
ganize University stenographers,
secretaries a n d clerical workers
into a union.
A spokesman for Local 1583,
which currently represents only
maintenance workers, said the un-
ion would like to encourage at
least 50 per cent of the estimated
3,000 office workers to authorize
the American Federation of State,
County and Municipal Employees
(AFSCME) to represent them.
Given this authorization, AFS-
CME would petition the State La-
bor Mediation Board to conduct a
referendum among University of-
fice employes. If two - thirds of
those voting cast ballots in favor
of union representation, a bar-
gaining unit would be established.
T h e members themselves would
then negotiate their own contract
and dues structure.
"Office workers need bargain-
ing power a n d grievance proce-
dures," said Mrs. Neva Middleton,
chairman of the organizing com-
mittee. "These are skilled and ed-
ucated people and yet their min-
imum wage is $1.93 - 27 cents
less than that of maintenance
workers," she asserted.
Mrs. Middleton, a University
housekeeping employe, anticipates
two problems in organizing office
personnel into a union - fear of
being f i r e d and opposition by
short time office employes such as
students and wives of students.
"Workers have got to get over
fear of losing their jobs," Mrs.
Middleton said. "Under Michigan
law employes are assured their
right to collective bargaining,"
If the office workers opt for
AFSCME representation, the un-
ion would be their exclusive rep-
resentative in negotiations with
the University on all matters per-
taining to wages, work hours,
terms and conditions of employ-
ment, and grievances arising un-
der these terms and conditions.

sity office employes of the oppor-

The outlook for University jobs is equal-
ly as dismal. "University jobs are almost
non-existent," says P. R. Zobian, an em-
ployment representative in the part-time
personnel office. He says one of the ma-
jor problems is a lack of money.
"It's not a general lack of dollars," Zo-
bian explains, "but because June 30 is the
end of the fiscal for the University, var-
ious departments do not know what their
budget requirements will be for the new

writing from members of theI
board that they are seriously in-
terested in discussing the idea.
"I'm convinced they will" return
a firm commitment to discuss the
matter, Morrony says.
While a detailed proposal has
yet to be drawn up and approved
by the GA, Morrony says that a
formalized proposal will be sent to
members of the board by June.
Although the board does not
meet formally during the summer
fmonths, board member Prof. Hen-
ry Pollock says the issue of stu-
dent representation will "probably
be the first thing we take up in
I the fall."
