Regents hear complaints on Cobb

(Continued from Page 1)
Charlotte Sebastian, also of the
Women's Commission, Fleming
said only, "Thank you very
much."
MOST OF the Regents have
withheld comment on the con-
troversial 46-page report of the
University's Affirmative Action
Committee,
Meanwhile, there were new
developments in the contro-
versy:

mittee geared up to form a new
deanship Search Committee, act-

ing on the Regents' order to
take that option instead of re-
opening talks with Cobb. But
the Committee, in choosing 30
names from which to select the
new panel, appeared to ignore
its charge to begin an "unpre-
judiced" dean search.
* Regional officials for the
department of Health, Educa-
tion and Welfare (HEW) said
they may have a response to
the Affirmative Action Commit-
tee's "Cobb report" by early
next week. HEW is blocking ap-
proval of a $485,000 University
research grant p e n d i n g the
agency's probe of the Cobb af-
fair for possible violation of
federal discrimination guide-
lines.
0 HEW also indicated its in-
vestigation may hold up other
federal research grants to the
campus - conceivably snagging
as much as $3.5-4 million in
funds for each month of delay,
according to University Re-

search Vice President Charles
Overberger.
Associate LSA Dean Sam
Krimm said, "We're doing the
best we can" to name a search
panel from the faculty that will
seek deanship candidates "with-
out prejudice" towards Cobb or
Acting Dean Billy Frye, whose
candidacy got strong support
from Fleming and Rhodes in
January.
BUT KRIMM acknowledged
that "prejudice for or against
Dean Frye was not discussed"
by the college's Executive Com-
mittee when it met to iron out
search panel selection proce-
dures earlier this week.
Many LSA faculty members
expressed strong support for
Frye during the negotiations
with Cobb, and blasted the Re-
gents for naming Cobb, who is
presently dean of academics at
Connecticut College.
When asked if LSA would take
measures to prevent prejudice

in favor of Frye, Krimm said in
an interview yesterday: "That
thoughtdid not occur to the Ex-
executive Committee."
HE suggested that checking
potential search panel mem-
bers for prejudices toward Cobb
or Frye would he "virtually
impossible," and said he knew
of no public communications
from professors endorsing Frye
or opposing Cobb.
Krimm noted that members of
the Zoology department's ex-
ecutive committee, which play-
ed a crucial role in rejecting
Cobb by voting to deny her a
tenured faculty position, had
all disqualified themselves from
search committee candidacy.
THE ZOOLOGY department
blocked tenure for Cobb, a cell
biologist, in a hasty decision
that included procedures termed
"manifestly inadequate" by the
Affirmative Action Committee's
report.
Krimm said the faculty will
