Faculty salary hike predicted

(Continued from Page 3)
HOWEVER, the Administra-
tion followed, in November, with
a proposed 13.23 per cent em-
ployment compensation increase
which was subsequently ap-
proved by the Board of Regents.
Although Hymans does not ex-
pect a faculty salary increase
in the double-figure range, he
said, "I'm not as pessimistic
as those who thought that the
total increase wouldn't be over
two or three per cent."
He supported his optimism by
indicating that the University
has fiscal autonomy and regard-
less of what the state allocates
in its upcoming bill, the Uni-
versity has full authority in
dispersing the funds.
"PRESIDENT F l e m i n g as
well as other administrators are
consistently arguing for the
13.23 per cent increase," Hy-
mans asserted.
The S e n a t e Appropriations
Committee is, according to Hy-
mans, "satiated with adminis-
trative suggestions." He views
the fact that the committee
would like to hear more recom-
mendations from the faculty as
an encouraging indication in the

faculty's favor.
"We are falling behind in be-
ing able to attract and keep
first-rate faculty . . . faculty
quality will deteriorate and with
it the excellence of the aca-
demic aspect of this University
as well," Hymans concluded.
ALSO AT the Senate Assem-
bly meeting, Fleming reiterated
the same defense of the Admin-
istration's actions during the
Cobb affair that he delivered
to the Board of Regents last
Declaring, "I prefer that this
subject disappear in the fu-
ture," Fleming appeared to
want to close the case that has
fueled so much controversy
during the last five months.
In his defense, Fleming hit
the findings section of the Af-
firmative Action Committee's
review of the Administration's
treatment of black woman edu-
cator Jewel Cobb for the literary
college (LSA) deanship last
COUNTERING the report's
suspicion that neither he nor
Academic Affairs Vice Presi-
dent Frank Rhodes seriously
considered Cobb's candidacy,

Fleming argued that at least
three Regents had criticized
him for not stating his prefer-
ence for acting LSA dean Billy
Frye strongly enough.
Fleming indicated that a De-
partment of Health, Education
and Welfare (HEW) investiga-
tion of the Cobb affair prompted
him to break his long silence
on the case. He declared his
refusal to allow HEW to exam-
ine the findings section as truth
THE CHICAGO Civil Rights
Office of HEW has requested in-
formation on the Cobb affair as
part of its ongoing monitoring
of the University's affirmative
action plan. However, it is not
specifically investigating t h e
Cobb case, according to high
Washington HEW official Barry
Anderson. According to Ander-
son, the employment discrimin-
ation complaint filed in Feb-
ruary by the Black Faculty and
Staff Association and the Wo-
men's Commission has been re-
ferred to the Equal Employ-
ment Opportunity Commission.
