'U' must bow to changing sex roes

sity eed-s to take. Some ndi-
vidual S choots, Such tas the
School of Engineering and the
law School, already have be-
gun to itmplemssent special pro-
grants to recruit stidents.
"AFFIRMATIVE action is re-
medial - or quasi- remedial,"
adds Power. "It is doaou b l e
pronged - there is the compli-
ance a s p e c t as well as the
imaginative side. We must open
up the system. There is a fertile
area to think about which is a
means to remedy. We can move
from there."
Kathie Eeauvais, Ilousing Di-
rector of E a s t Quadrangle,
points out one way to take in-
itiative. "If we see a deficiency
in our initial recruitment of wo-
men and minorities, we must
take more action. For example,
we should publish the opening
in the Black Scholar as well as
the Chronicles of Higher Educa-
tion. We must advertise our po-
sition as affirmative action em-
ployers by more than the af-
firmative action notice that ap-
pears in small letters on the
bottom of an advertisement or
application."
"This is the only way to de-
termine if there is a pool," con-
tinued Beauvais. "White males
are never hesitant to apply. Wo-
men and minorities have inbred
hesitancy. We mot let thena
koow about positions."
ACCORDING to Vice Presi-
dent for Academic Affairs
Frank Rhodes, the University
must exhibit a sensitivity to
those employes and students
who have chosen part-time em-
ployment or education and to
those whose careers have been
interrupted.
"The University must exercise
a willingness to eliminate two
phobias." maintains R h o d e s.

Recruitment of women stressed

''One, we must accept the fact
that it is proper to have an in-
terrupted career. Second, we
mist look towards hiring two
part-time people for one full
time position."
''For the most part, full time
professors and half-time profes-
sors do the same amount of
teaching," adds Sandman. "But
the full time person gets paid
for research. The half-time per-
attn must do it on their own.
Half time people are seen to be
not serious. Part-time people
cannot get tenure. Anti-nepotism
rules are gone but the values
still retrain."
The(enter for the Continuing
Education for Women (CEW),
the oldest women's organization
on campus, has provided a re-
source center for the return-
ing student for the past 12
years. Its services vary from
counselling a n d assertiveness
training workshops to evening
classes and scholarships for the
part-time student.
TODAY, THE center offers
counseling for both sexes, assist-
ing, for example, those who are
part of dual-career marriages.
"Dual-career marriages does
not necessarily mean that there
has to be two times as much
money earned," said Law School
Dean Theodore St. Antoine. "In
the future maybe society can-
not expect twice as much, since
there are dual responsibilities.
People can't put in the same
time commitment. Society can
expect a profound shift because
people are moving into an en-
tirely new dimension of relation-
ships."
Sandman is one man who is
devoted to making his dual-ca-
reer marriage work. He traded

his kill time job at the Univer-
sity for a part-time position so
that he could go to New York
where his wife Susan found a
teaching position at another col-
lege. He is teaching at the Uni-
versity during Spring and has
spent the last year being a
househusband,
"WHEN I GOT married in
1967 I knew about wanting to
make my family and career re-
sponsibilities equal. But no one
really knew what that meant,"
recalls Sandman. "I knew Su-
san would have a career but
I didn't know it would get in the
way of mine. I knew one should
not exploit one's spouse. I didn't
know that one had to do so to
get a career. We had to re-
evaluate our approaches to ca-
reers and find out exactly what
they meant to us."
"The University is receptive
to part-time," he adds. "My ex-
perience is a good example."
"My colleagues were perplex-
ed. They would ask, 'why are
you going to New York? You
have a job in Cornell?' Some
men came to me saying, 'What
you're doing is right. It is hard
going home to- a frustrated
wife . ..' The closer they come
to retirement, they realise how
much they have missed out"
Increasing the number of child
care centers at the University
would be another initiation the
University could take to help'
alleviate the pressure on work-
ing parents. At present, one
child care center exists and an-
other one is in the final stages
of preparation. Each unit ac-
commodates 26 children. How-
ever, cutbacks are now under
consideration for the existing
center.

"RIGHT NOW, parents must
hustle to find child care," said
Gail Resnik, Women's Program
Co-ordinator- "They find out
what is best to fit their needs.
They do constant analyses.
Sometimes, they find private
sitters. But the pay is high and
if the sitter gets ill, they must
stay home from work. It is es-
pecially hard for the single
parent."
The University is making
some strides toward helping the
part-time person. At today's Re-
gents meeting, they will discuss
reduced fees for part-time stu-
dents.
Also, there are two new grad-
uate programs which are de-
signed to aid the non-traditional
student.
One program, in the School of
Public Health, helps inexperi-
enced administrators already in
the field to sharpen their ad-
ministrative skills. They meet
one weekend each month, for 24
hours.
The second program, still in
the experimental stage, will en-
able those people who are un-
able to travel to Ann Arbor to
get a graduate degree via tele-
vision courses. There will be a
variety of courses to choose
from.
The University is demonstrat-
ing that it is open to change.
"WE ARE AT the point where
I would have predicted we'd
be," said Ann Larimore, Geog-
raphy Professor and Associate

Director of the Residential Col-
lege. "Militants who think we
conld hove changed quicker
don't realize the power of an
institution. You don't affect so-
cial change in six years.
"We must unwork the injits-
tices in the system. If not, thee
is no point in putting people wt
it.'-
"Departments complain tht
they can't find any wonmen. Thi
was inevitable, that p e o p 1
would resist change. But we
must crawl before we walk.,
"Should the University take
the lead in changing societys
attitudes," asked Dorothy Nc-
Buigan, Policy Co-ordinator for
CEW, "or should it wait till
society forces it to change? One
hundred six years ago, the Uni
versity waited."
U.S. considers
evacuation

(Continued from Page ti
U.S. naval and air units were
in position in the eastern Medi
terranean to start an evacuation
of 1,400 Americans in Lebanon

Earlier yesterday, Kissinger
told the house International Re-
lations Committee t h a t the
United States would decide by
tonight whether to carry out an
evacuation.
KISSINGER told the conimit-
tee that if American troops are
used, "it will be a very shar1

DELONIS ALSO raised the
possibility -of other individuals
taking part in the mass poison-
ing. The indictment handed
down on Wednesday mentioned
"diverse other persons" who
supposedly conspired with the
two nurses.
Delonis did caution that such
wording in the indictment may
only be serving to keep options
or additional charges open to
the grand jury should addition-
al evidence change the com-
plexion of the case.

more immediate arrests.
"Right now, our emphasis is
not on any more investigation
but on preparation for the
trial," he said.
"We're giving some thought
to jury selection and to witness
selection," added Delonis. "Alt
I can say is that we wilt call a
substantial number of witness-
es. It will be a very long, in-
volved and complex trial."
DELONIS added that a large
number of the prosecution wit-
nesses would be members of
the "medical community."
Asked if he thought he had
a strong case, he declined corn-
ment saying, "ethics don't ser-
mit me to express a personal
opinion on that."
Delonis said he expected the
trial to commence within 90
days.
