The Michigan Student Assembly
(MSA) approved an amendment to its
Personnel Operating Procedures last
ight that would require the Permanent
nterviewing Committee (PIC) to have
at least one woman and one minority
representative as members of the six-
person committee. The change will
take effect this fall.
The PIC is the body that interviews
all applicants for external appointmen-
ts made by MSA. Recommendations
are made to the full Assembly, which
,has the final say on whether or not a
given applicant gets an external ap-
.THE AMENDMENT approved last
night also requires that "any person
who applied and was rejected for a
position must be informed of other
vacancies at the same time he/she is
being notified of the original rejection."
A third part of the amendment, that
would require PIC to interview at least
one woman and one minority represen-
tative for each opening, was tabled last
ight, but should be voted on next week.
The discussion of the third part of the
amendment centered on two points:
* What constitutes a reasonable ef-
fort on the part of PIC to recruit women
" And whether the amendment
should require "at least one woman and
one minority representative" to be in-
terviewed or should require a
"representative pool" to be inter-
ANITA EVE, Vice-President of
linority Affairs, suggested the
"representative pool" idea, and said
there is no reason MSA shouldn't follow
the same minority procedures "that
other institutions are required to abide
The amendment also provided for
two MSA members to be on PIC. This
requirement was in response, accor-
ding to Legislative Relations Coor-
dinator Jack Hall, to lack of input to
4 SA from PIC.
This lack of communication became
most apparent in the selection of
University Cellar Board members
several weeks ago.
ALSO LAST night, Vice-President for
Personnel Bob DiScipio resigned.
DiScipio said his resilnation was for
"personal reasons," among which he
cited a lack of sufficient time to devote
He said he doesn't "have the time to
o the kind of job that I'd like to do." He
aid he felt it would be more ap-
propriate to resign ,now than to resign
at the beginning of this term, even
though he has "felt it (problems with
time commitment) coming on for a

Striking Chicago teachers
demand full back pay
CHICAGO (AP) - Teachers returned
to schools yesterday to pick up partial
paychecks, but most didn't stick around
to teach as their union continued to
demand they be paid all their back
Throughout the nation's third largest
school system the story was the same
as Monday - few students, fewer
teachers and on-the-spot decisions by
principals on what to do with students
who did show up.
"CURRICULUM has to be adjusted
for the vicissitudes of the day. But
something worthwhile is going on,"
said Crescentia LeDonne, principal of
Alcott Elementary School on the city's
But Joe Johnson, an eighth grader
who has been helping in the office, said,
"I want my own techer. They're just
going over old lessons today. I like to
learn new material."
Meanwhile, Jerome Van Gorkom,
chairman of the new Chicago School
Finance Authority, warned yesterday
that unless $6 million is slashed from
the school budget, schools may close.
HE SAID that if the Board of
Education doesn't make that necessary
reduction, the group, which supervises
school finances, won't approve the
board's budget. It is expected to be
presented to the authority Friday.
"If we do not approve it, the school
board does not have an authorized
budget," he said. "Then, they will not
be able to spend any money."
School board president Catherine
Rohter said attendance was about the
same as Monday when less than five
per cent of the 25,355 teachers and less
than seven per cent of the 472,452
Teachers say they will not go back
until 48,600 school employees are paid
in full. They missed a two-week
paycheck on Jan. 18 and were paid for
one of those weeks yesterday. Other
employees also received partial pay,
some for less than a week. Another
check is due Friday.
On Monday, the City Council adopted
an ordinance authorizing the sale of
$225 million in bonds to pay salaries still
due and salary increases. Buyers were
sought for some of those bonds yester-
day. The City Council hopes to meet this
week to fill in the names of the pur-
chasers and the interest rates in the or-
dinance in hopes of paying employees
all the money they are owed on Friday.

are so good,
-they sell themselves.
