A call from Cleaver

By LINDSAY CHANEY
The U.S. Dep ar tm ent of
Labor was asked yesterday to
investigate the University for
alleged discrimination in the
admission, training and em-
ployment of women.
The request came in a complaint
filed by the Ann Arbor Focus on
Equal Employment for Women
(FOCUS), which charges the Uni-
versity with violation of an Execu-
tive Order issued by former Presi-
dent Lyndon Johnson. The order
forbids discrimination by federal
contractors on the basis of sex.
Last year, the University held
$62 million worth of federal gov-
ernment contracts.
The comp 1 a i n t by FOCUS
charges. the University with dis-
crimination against women in sev-
eral ways, beginning with the ad-
mission of freshman.
The complaint q u o t e s Gayle
Wilson, executive associate direc-
tor of admissions, as saying that
the University adjusts admissions
requirements to prevent an "over-
balance" of women in the fresh-
man class.
Wilson, however, last night de-
nied that he ever made such a
statement. "I can't recall ever
saying such a thing," said Wilson.
"The requirements for admission
are the same for everyone," he
added.
Patterns of employment of wo-
men in teaching positions at the
University are also described in
the complaint. According to a
study sponsored by the National
Science Foundation, the complaint
says, over 11 per cent of the
Ph.D.'s in the United States were
women, a figure which is not re-
flected by the University faculty.
The complaint cites figures from
the Office of the Vice President
for Academic Affairs which show
that only 4.3 per cent of the full
professors, 10.8 per cent of asso-
ciate professors, and 7.2 per cent
of assistant professors were women
in the fall of 1969.
The complaint by FOCUS also
asks the Labor Department to
investigate r e p o r t s that many
highly-educated women are em-
ployed by the University in clerical
positions but are expected to do
administrative a n d supervisory
work without higher pay.
The complaint by FOCUS says
that although men tend to do less
well academically in high school

To assume new 'U'jo
after year's absence
By MARTIN HIRSCHMAN
After only two years in the post, William L. Hays will
leave his post as dean of the literary college this summer,
informed sources confirmed yesterday.
Hays will leave the University on a year's sabbatical, and
will move into a new post in the office of Vice President for
Academic Affairs Allan F. Smith when he returns, the
sources said. The precise duties of his new job have not yet
been defined.
No firm decision has been made on the question of Hays'
successor, but sources speculated that the Regents will appoint
an interim dean until a search committee can come up with
a list of nominees.
The Regents are expected to announce Hays' departure

DEN TON HEARING:
Grad panel postpones
BAM disruption case
By ANITA WETTERSTROEM
A Board of Inquiry in the graduate school yesterday
postponed a preliminary hearing on charges against Peter
Denton, Grad, for his alleged participation in the disruption
of a computer science class last March during the class strike
supporting the demands of the Black Action Movement
(BAM).
The hearing was postponed indefinitely when the Board
of Inquiry ruled that it was "illegally constituted," because
the two student members of the board had not been nomi-
nated by Graduate Assembly (GA).
The charges against Denton had been filed by mathe-
matics Prof. Bernard Galler, who accused him and Marc Van

at their June meeting.
Hays will spend the coming aca-
demic-year with the psychology
department at the University of
California at Santa Barbara. His
research field is applications of
mathematics to psychology.
Sources at Santa Barbara said
Hays will be resting up and doing
research during his stay there. He
will not teach any courses.
This was consistent with the
dean's departure suggested by lo-
cal sources-that Hays is worn out
from the grueling and often un-
satisfying work that the deanship
of the University's largest unit
entails.
There was no indication that
Hays' departure was ordered by
higher level, University adminis-
trators. Sources said, however,
that his request for sabbatical
leave has been discussed by the
Regents and the executive officers
-President Robben Fleming and
the vice presidents.
There was not thought to be
any single issue over which Hays
felt compelled to leave the dean-
ship. However, he has received
strong faculty opposition to cer-
tain reforms he has attempted to
initiate since he took office.
In January 1969, during a stu-
dent drive for an end to language

Hays came under sharp criticism
for public statements he made ad-

University. Council (UC), a tri-
partite body created by the Re-
gents to draft University-wide
regulations, met for the first time
yesterday.
Although the student-faculty-
administration body did not begin
the task of formulating rules at
the meeting, UC did appoint a
three-member subcommittee to
compile all existing sets of rules
used by various segments of the
University community.
A rule proposed by UC would
be submitted for ratification to
Student Government Council and
Senate Assembly, the faculty rep-
resentative body. If both bodies
approve the rule, it would then be
submitted o the Regents for
adoption.
The Regents have already adopt-
ed a set of interim rules which
pertain primarily to cases of dis-
ruption by students. In adopting
the interim rules, the Regents
said they allow them to be re-
placed by UC-drafted rules if the
UC rules were as "acceptable" as
the interim rules.

"guerrilla theatres" after the
North Hall takeover earlier this
month.
"We wanted to have more con-
tact between the two-groups," ex-
plained GLF member Mike Jones.
For one of their skits, the troupe
acted out an "interrogation" in
which a female village was cap-
tured, and a simulated rape by
all the soldiers was enacted.
In the rape scene, the soldier
who helped the villager escape
was called a "commie, pinko fag-
got" by the rest of the troupe, and
then killed.
A brief talk on "your gun as a
friend-it makes you a man and
brings you joy and success "-was
delivered next. A short mock drill
followedwhere the soldier learned
the importance of the word kill."
"About face and present arms,"
the narrator ordered the "sol-

attention and presenting their
weapons for inspection, the "sol-

into one another's arms. The com-
manding officer then "shot" all of
his men.

By HARVARD VALLANCE
In response to predictions from urban
specialists of an exceptionally high unem-
ployment rate among black youths this
summer, the local Model Cities program,
and city, state and federal agencies have
embarked upon a program to help curb the
projected job shortage.
As part of the program, City Council
voted Monday to appropriate $20,000 of
the remaining $35,000 in the city's emer-

city and federal government agencies will
be able to employ about 125 of the jobless.
The remainder, he says, would have to be
employed by private businesses in the city.
Sumpter adds that he is optimistic that
private employers can generate nearly 150
jobs for those not employed by government
agencies.
City Administrator Guy Larcom Jr. says
that the unusual use of the city's emer-
gency fund was necessitated by the ab-
normally tight city budget this year and

ter, will be provided through the city's
recreation department, which works in
conjunction with the Model Cities pffice
in much of its hiring.
The recreation department has already
listed over 70 full and part-time summer
jobs granted to black youths.
Joseph Dimento, a Model Cities staff
member involved in the summer employ-
ment problem, says that the city expects
to receive funds for the local neighbor-
hood Youth Core program to help finance
