Nominees sought for

two LSA dt
By BETH ROSENBERG
LSA Dean Billy Frye will accept
nominations through February 8 for
two associate dean positions in the
College of Literature, Science and
the Arts.
Any individual or group can
nominate full-time tenured LSA
faculty members for the deanships,
which will be left open when
Associate Dean for Curriculum John
Knott and Associate. Dean for
Student Academic Affairs Judith
Bardwick vacate their positions at
the end of the winter term.
FRYE SAID he has no fixed
deadline for choosing the new deans,
but said he hopes to know who the
successors will be by the end of the
month.
Although the positions can be
renewed, appointments are usually
limited to two years, Frye ex-
plained, because a long term and its
accompanying administrative load
can combine to make it difficult for
faculty members to keep up with
outside academic work.
The Associate Dean for
Curriculum has the task of
stimulating curricular development,
evaluating and modifying
graduation requirements, suppor-
ting interdisciplinary studies, and
chairing the Standing Committee on
Curriculum.
"(THE CANDIDATE) needs an
interest in working with faculty and

eans hips
department chairpersons," Knott
said. "Imagination and energy are
needed to do a good job," he added.
"We are looking for vital, active
members of the faculty," Frye said.
A broad scholastic background and
an interest in improving the quality
of teaching and the undergraduate
program are important qualities for
the associate curriculum dean, he
added.
Implementation of all academic
policies and procedures affecting
faculty and students falls upon the
Associate Dean for Student
Academic Affairs, Frye said. Ad-
ditional duties for this position in-
clude financial and administrative
responsibility for the College's
academic counseling programs, the
Office of Academic Actions, and
LSA Checkpoint. The dean also
chairs the Administrative Board, a
faculty-student committee that
establishes policies regarding the
academic counseling programs.
Frye said someone with experien-
ce in academic counseling and a
broad perspective on the academic
world would be particularly suited to
this position.
In addition to consulting with the
LSA Executive Committee, his of-
fice staff, and department chairper-
sons when considering job applican-
ts, Frye will conduct personal inter-
views with the applicants. The final
choice will be made by Frye subject
to approval by the Regents.

AGREE TO CONTRACT CONCESSIONS:
Chrysler workers

DETROIT (UPI)-Voting to save their jobs,
Chrysler Corp. workers overwhelmingly ratified a
renegotiated contract providing $446 million in con-
cessions to the troubled company, the United Auto
Workers (UAW) union said yesterday.
After three weeks of balloting, the UAW said it
counted 38,865 votes in favor of the new agreement
against 8,017 "no" votes-a victory proportion of 79.4
per cent.
THE UNION said the vote in favor of the pact
among hourly production and maintenance workers
was greater than that cast for the original
agreement, which contained fewer sacrifices.
The contract covers 111,000 active and laid off U.S.
Chrysler workers in four separate units.

Nuclear plant demonstrators to
appeal after denial of jury trial

By ELEONORA DI LISCIA
. The attorney representing 14 people
convicted of trespassing , at the
Charlevoix Big Rock nuclear power
plant during a 1978 demonstration, said
the group members will appeal their
case to the Michigan Court of Appeals
next Wednesday.
The protesters pleaded "no contest"
last year before District Court Judge
David Fershee, who ruled prior to the
pleas that the defendants had no right
o a jury trial because nuclear power is
too complex an issue for a jury to un-
derstand.
'IT SEEMS apparent that this type of
case is not the kind that deals with sim-
ple issues relating tp :factual matters
that a laypersonsitting gas a juror would
be competent to Jecide," Fershee
wrote in his ruling.
''I think that crystallizes the attitude
throughout the country, "said defense
attorney James Olson. "We maintain
that laypeople can decide. The purpose
of the; appeal 'is to! break this
technological idolatry. The
ramifications of Fershee's ruling is'
statewide. It is a dangerous precedent
to human and civil rights."
The "Big Rock 14" took part in a
Dec. 2, 1978 protest against the nuclear
plant following a minor radiation leak.
The demonstrators were arrested after
entering the plant property and being
asked to leave.
ACCORDING TO Olson, the Big Rock
plant is reputedly among the most
dangerous in the country. "Ralph
Nadar spoke in Traverse City and
labelled Big Rock so dangerous, it
should be shut down," Olson said.

The plant was originally licensed as
experimental. It was built in the late
1950's before current regulatory safety
standards went into effect. Because of
this the plant's containment shell may
not be thick enough to contain gamma
rays should a Three Mile Island type
accident occur, claimed Olson.
A spokesman for the Big Rock plant,
Phil .Loomis, said the plant could
withstand a 10 per cent core meltdown,
ten times as intense as the accident at
the Three Mile Island plant. The plant
has a history of minor problems and
was shut down and reopened several
times in 1966.
OLSON HAS maintained that his
clients acted out of the common law of
necessity or "choice between two
evils." In other words, if a defendant
broke a law in order to avert a greater
danger they would be excused from
criminal responsibility provided they
had no alternative.
Robert Pollard, a former member of
the Nuclear Regulatory Commission,
indicated that the NRC was not an ef-
fective means of action concerning the
plant's safety. "Like the Atomic
Energy Commission, the NRC con-
tinues to put the health of the industry
above the safety of the public. The NRC
is fond of saying that their method of
regulation is open to participation, but
the rules make it impossible for the
public to participate."
Prosecuting attorney Scott Beatty
said that he is concerned with the
plant's safety, but "the thought of a
nuclear plant being trespassed by a
group of people doesn't make me feel
any better.''

ACCORDING TO Beatty, the
criminal justice system is not the ap-
propriate place to raise questions of
nuclear safety since the legal system is
"bogged down enough." Beatty also
said the necessity defense applies only
to a situation where danger is eminent
and action must be taken im-
mediately.
"If there are other avenues the
necessity defense is invalid. Michigan
has turned control of nuclear power to
the federal government. An alternative
avenue would be the political system,
the legislature," Beatty said.
Fershee ruled against the necessity
defense, apparently not satisfied that it
was appliable.
FCC to
rule on
future

and the Office of Student Services have
both offered $4,000 for the venture.
TONY MATTAR, budget director for
WCBN and its AM affiliate, WRCN,
said the FCC decision calling for in-
creased wattage was an attempt "to
consolidate and rid the highly sought-
after frequencies of stations that emit
weak signals."
WCBN, founded in 1972, sends out a
signal that is sustained for only 2.5
miles, at which point it begins to
weaken significantly, Schwartz said.
Because of the present limits, few
potential listeners living on the outskir-
ts of town can receive WCBN
programming clearly. According to
Schwartz, the wattage increase would
double the station's signal strength.
Located in the basement of the
Student Activities Building, WCBN is
used as an educational tool for many
students pursuing careers in com-
munications, Mattar said.
LOCUST SWARMS
ROME (AP)-During the past two
years, favorable climatic conditions in
the Arabian Peninsula, Ethiopia and to
some extent in the Iran-Pakistan area
have lead to the growth of swarms of
desert locusts each numbering in the
hundreds of millions.
The migrating swarms threaten the
rich crop and grazing areas in East and
Central Africa. Consequently, the U.N.
Food and Agriculture Organization has
allocated more than $8 million for
aerial and ground spraying.
As an indication of the seriousness of
the problem, FAO experts point out that
in Ethiopia in 1959, swarms which
ultimately came together to form a
single one of 400 squre miles ate enough
food in six weeks to feed a million
people for a year.

Nang in September 1965. He spent
nearly 14 years in Vietnam before
returning to the United States last Mar-
ch.
MAJ. T. B. Hamilton Jr., a military
judge, recommended that Garwood be
court-martialed on the basis of eviden-
ce presented at a hearing, which ended
yesterday.
Former American POWs testified
they encountered Garwood in com-
munist prison camps in the late 1960s.
Witnesses said Garwood carried guns,
helped guard other Americans and
claimed to be a lieutenant in the North
Vietnamese army.
Defense attorneys contended at the
hearing that Garwood was a pawn of
the communists and one of many POWs
who cooperated with their captors out
of fear.
DERMOT FOLEY, Garwood's
civilian lawyer, said later that
Hamilton's remarks held few surprises
for him. He added, however, that he ob-
jected to Hamilton saying Garwood
should face the same possible fate as
POWs who suffered and died in the
camps because "that sounds like the
U.S. should do what the Viet Cong did to
those guys.'
