Program supporters
appeal to Dean Frye

(Continued from Page 1)
Marty Bombeck, a graduate student
Od teaching assistant in the program,
said the rally marked an important
point in the maintenance of the
program.
She said the announcement of the
demonstration won verbal concessions
from Frye on Monday. The concessions
include an extension of current 300-
level TA-taught courses for another
academic year, the hiring of a new
associate director for the program, the
location of TA money to influence
epartmental hiring of faculty to teach
Women's Studies courses, permission
for the program to recruit faculty out-
side the college, and funding for
curricular development.
"BUT THIS IS not -nough," Bom-
beck said. "We must force the
Executive Committee to put their wor-
ds into action. We don't like the dean's
comments that the college wants to
eliminate the undergraduate
*cilitators who teach our 200 level
courses, they muststay."
Guest speaker Joel Samoff, a lecturer
in the Residential College and Center
for Afro-American and African Studies,
said the program' review committee
concluded that the Women's Studies
program has made a major con-
tribution to the University community,
but that LSA and the University is using
"tight finances" as an excuse to cut in-
vative programs that deviate from
mainstream of the academic com-
munity.
"Women's Studies is a new field that
challenges the existing order of
things," he said. "Everyone suffers
when innovative programs are cut." s

UNDERGRADUATE Valarie Mims
emphasized that far too few women are
among the tenured ranks of the
faculty, and the administration is
taking aim at dismantling not only the
Women's Studies program, but also the
American Studies and the Center for
Afro- American and African Studies
programs.
Another undergraduate, Jane
Queller, said the Executive Commit-
tee's request to increase the program's
research component by cutting back its
curriculum is wrong.
"We support research of women, but
not at the expense of education," she
said. "The University should add a
research component or create a
separate one."
Jean King, an Ann Arbor lawyer who
deals with women's issues, said the
University has a tradition of infringing
on women's rights and that women
within the University structure have lit-
tle clout on the University's policy
process. She added that female studen-
ts at the University are not supplied
with role models because there are few
female faculty members.
The final speaker, Residential
College History Prof. Marilyn Young,
claimed the Women's Studies program
is among the very best in the country.
"We are consulted and envied," she
said.
"At a reasonable university we'd
receive adequate support," she noted.
"At the University of Michigan our
resoures are threatened. Our program
is vital and fundamental to the Univer-
sity, our curriculum must be main-
tained."
