Do you think there is a chance,
perhaps, that some of the functions of
the department could be absorbed by
other departments?
No way. Geography is a discipline as
old as any-going back to the days of
Alexander in the Third Century B.C. It
has had an independent existence. It
does not lend itself to absorption par-
ticularly well.
You've spent virtually your entire
career working with the geography
department. What is your personal
reaction to the review that could result
in the dismantling of the department?
First, it's a sadness. When one comes
close to retirement (as I do in four
years), one would like to think that the
work that one started gets carried on.
That's part of the academic world,
that's part of the university tradition.
And to think that by stroke of the pen . .
.That's not a happy thought.
What about your colleagues? Do you
detect any bitterness?
Of course. But you have to remem-
ber, it all struck us today. The first
reaction is a reaction of astonishment.
There are always rumors of impen-
ding cuts floating about. Had you heard
any rumor of the geography depar-
tment's review?
No inkling and no hint.
What will you do if the department is
I do not know, except my answer
would be: One, that I would continue to
work and publish books and articles as I
have for all these years, and two, that I
want to teach, for that, if anything, is
more important to me than my
Would you teach under the auspices
of another department?
For anybody who .will give me 'a
classroom! You can quote me on that.
Yes, because I think I have something
to offer.

There are some who say the decision
to cut the department has already been
made and that the review is more of a
formality to give people a chance to ex-
press their pleasure or displeasure ...
That's possible. That's all I can
say-it's possible.
During the upcoming review, do you
think there will be much opposition to
the proposed discontinuance?
I cannot say. I hope so.
What about the students, especially
the students who major in geography
And the graduate students. I don't
know. If this were to pass, we would cut
off more than 30 people from advanced
degrees. If it were to pass, it would be
my guess that the discontinuance would
take effect with all deliberate speed.
What do you think the criteria should
be if the powers that be determine that
there has to be some program discon-
Contribution to the University first,
contribution to the profession second . .
that is where I have a very strong case
Has there been a problem with
enrollment in recent years?
It's smaller than it used to be. . . in
some courses, keeping up in others.
How much do you think the
enrollment figures had to do with the
decision to review the department?
Not very much-but that's just a
stage sit-in
WARSAW, Poland (AP) - Thousan-
ds of students were reported yesterday
to have occupied a building at the
University of Lodz to demand abolition
of compulsory classes in Marxism,
raising new tensions in communist
The sit-in by more than 2,000 studen-
ts, reported by student sources, came
as farmers in southern Poland warned,
of new strikes if an "authorized"
government team failed to appear
today toodiscuss demands for a rural
version of Solidarity, the independent
MEANWHILE, THE state-run press
launched what appeared to be a cam-
paign against Solidarity
The Daily on Friday quoted a price of
$36 for a 12-month subscription to the
University Record. The correct price
for the publication is $15.

Steubenville workers strike
STEUBENVILLE, Ohio-Only a few of Steubenville's 350 employees
reported to work yesterday as non-uniformed workers joined police and
firefighters in a "sick-out" connected to an ongoing wage dispute.
"The city's about at a standstill as far as services go," Mayor William
Crabbe said.
Crabbe declined to call the action a strike but said "the only people
working are department heads and two directors, me, and a few union-
exempt secretaries."
No major incidents have developed since the "sick-out" began..
Arab states consider
resolution to strengthen PLO
TAIF, Saudi Arabia-Leaders of the Moslem world yesterday took up a
resolution aimed at forcing Israel to end its occupation of Arab territory and
to increase the military strength of the Palestine Liberation Organization.
The resolution's strategy was to pressure Israel's friends into forcing the
Jewish state to give up Arab land occupied during the 1967 Mideast War. It.,
spoke of "freezing" Israeli membership in,the United Nations, but did not
eleaborate on what measures might be tried short of attempting to expel
Israel from the world body-an action that would face a U.S. veto.
If approved by the 28 heads of state and top-level representatives from
nine other Arab, African, and Asian nations, the Islamic states would pledge
to give "military expertise and equipment" to Yasser Arafat's PLO.


'Buckeye 3' start new school
BUCKEYE, La.-Three white girls who defied a federal judge's
desegregation order that would have bused them 21 miles from their rural
all-white public school started classes yesterday at a private academy.
The girls, who became known as the "Buckeye Three" in a fight between
state and federal judges over their right to attend Buckeye High School,
started the spring semester at a private school founded to serve students
who refused to be bused to a racially mixed high school in Alexandria.

Austin urges government
to drop exhaust testing
LANSING-Secretary of State Richard Austin urged Washington yester-
day to let Michigan drop planned auto exhaust testing in the Detroit area,
claiming it will cost $500,000 while only marginally improving air quality.
Testing is due to begin next year in Wayne, Oakland, and Macomb coun-
ties because of a law the legislature passed in 1980 under the threat that the
federal government would freeze all new construction in the area-a
devastating blow to Michigan's already staggering economy.
In a letter to U.S. Sen. Carl Levin, (D-Mich.) Austin said imposition of the
widely disliked testing program will hasten by only one year Michigan's
compliance with federal clean air requirements for the Detroit area.
Miami riot 'trialbegins,
MIAMI-Jurors were cautioned yesterday to take into account the chaotic
situation in hearing murder charges against four black men accused in the
slayings of three whites during May riots last year.
A racially mixed jury heard opening arguments. Both prosecution and
defense attorneys used words like outrage, confusion, and chaos to describe
the rioting that left 18 people dead and caused an estinated $100 million in
The jury panel is composed of seven women and five men. Two of the men
'and one of the women are black. The prosecution said before the trial the
death penalty would not be sought.

girlfriend i jailbreak attempt
NEW YORK-Federal authorities searched yesterday for the girlfriend of
a convicted narcotics dealer whose friends tried to help him escape from a
federal detention center in the heart of New York City in a daring but unsuc-
cessful helicopter caper.
Sought was Diane Becker, 29, girlfriend of Robert Wyler, 43, target of the
escape plot Sunday. The attempt failed when Wyler's confederates, hovering
over the prison in a hijacked helicopter, were unable to break through a
heavy wire screen covering the roof.
