Depressed economy could put
a damper on affirmative action

ner, are often sloppily kept or
incomplete. In any event, there
is the feeling that they do not
supply enough information for
the Affirmative Action office to
determine if a good faith effort
is being made.
C A R O L Y N COPELAND,
an administrative aide to acting
Dean Billy Frye, admitted that
"It may well be we are going
to have to ask for more specific
information."
Another key factor to be ex-
amined is exactly where the
college is presently acquiring
its instructional staff. Asso-
ciate Dean Mueller says the
college's prime source of fac-
ulty are the Ph.D programs of
so called "peer institutions" us-
ually meaning the top dozen
or so schools in the country of
which the University is gener-
ally included.
According to Mueller, "Some-

body who applies who has gone
to a small black college in the
south isn't a serious applicant
because you know that that per-
son has not had the necessary
training."
THIS NETWORK of peer in-
stitutions, referred to by some
as the "old boys network," has
tended to perpetuate the domi-
nance of white males among
the faculty of major colleges
and universities. The question
then, it would seem, is how to
make the old boys network
work for minorities.
"When we are the old boys,"
said political science chairman
Harold Jacobson, "we make ev-
'STAGE SETTER'
HELPS STUDENTS
KENT, Ohio I) - Albert
Miles of Akron says he likes to
help students.
One way he does so is by
holding the price of candy to 10
cents a bar in his vending ma-
chines at Kent State Univer-
sity, though the wrappers say
15 cents. Another is by sponsor-
ing the Mary Miles . Scholar-
ship, given quarterly to a Kent
State music student in mem-
ory of his daughter, who was a
Kent State music student.
"Smiles," as he is known,
says he has been in candy all
his life, eating it as a child,
nmaking it as a young man
working his s'ay through col-
lege and now selling it. He is

"There are people on the
stage and there are those who
set the stage," he philosophi-
zes. "I'm in the background; I
provide the sweets."

ery effort to bring good minor-
ity candidates to the attention
of other schools."
"When you get down to the
reality of it," Mueller summed
up, "it comes to the size of
the pool and the number of
qualified applicants."
0 T H E R problems, not
surprisingly, find their roots at
the matter of dollars. LSA de-
partments are limited to pro-
viding travel funds for only two
candidates per position for an
interview. A February memo
from Frye to all departments
offered to provide additional
funds for two additional minor-
ity or women candidates those
departments might want to
meet.
But clearly, this is only a
small part of a badly depressed
economic climate which will
prohibit LSA from hiring any-
where near the rate it was a
few years ago. The boom years
are over for higher education,
and affirmative action will suf-
fer along with other programs.
"Actually, we felt pretty
good about what we did in 73-
74,' said Carolyn Copeland, re-
flecting on the college's affirm-
ative action efforts during that
period.
P R E L I M I N A R Y in-
dications are, however, that the
1974-75 progress report, due to
be presented to the University's
executise officers toward the
end of the summer, will be even
bleaker.
"We were only able to hire
one black," said Copeland.
"But its not because we haven't
tried."

The basic problem, according

ly, nobody seems to know exact
ly what will be dome to currt-
the situation.
"We s tertounder the impre
sion that corrections would be
made," Starring said Tuesday,
"and that they wouald be made
by the installers."
BUT Leo Pelletier, a shop
foreman at the Huron Valley
Glass Company, said his people
have "no plans" to effect ast;
changes with the perilots por-
tll. He added that the glass
company in installing the doors,
simply did what the architects
told them tao do and can not be
held responsible for smashed
toes ore sore foreheads.
"I don't know what will he

In the meantime, library-go-
ers might be wise to approach
the Grad doors with more than
the usual amount of caution-
and wear thick shoes.
