'U' urges ii
By J.M. FIRST
University administrators and student government
leaders recently have been circulating the telephone
number of the White House Comment Line in an ef-
fort to stimulate staff and student input on President
Reagan's budget cut proposals.'
Morton Brown, chairman of the Senate Advisory
Committee on University Affairs, said last week he
was distributing the phone number to the deans and
the heads of departments within thi University to en-
courage them to participate in the federal budget
process. He said that he was not, however, "leading
the fight against the president's proposed budget
cuts."
HE SAID HE thought the Comment Line was par-

n ut to Whi
ticularly valuable oecause it allows a person to speak
freely and to be accounted for individually.
The Comment Line, (202) 456-7639, is a service
which allows individuals to voice their opinions to
White House staff members in Washington.
According to Joan Decain, supervisor of Presiden-
tial Inquiries, the calls on the line are taken by volun-
teer aides. Decain refused to say whether the volun-
teers need any special training or experience to ob-
tain the position.
SHE SAID each day a chart is prepared with
columns for the most popular local, national, and in-
ternational issues. She said the volunteers listen to
each caller's opinion, then place a mark on the chart
indicating the caller's position.
The marks in each category are totaled at the end

te House
of each day, and a report of the results is sent to the
president.
She said the aides are not required to speak with
the callers on the comment line;
DECAIN ASSERTED that most callers approve of
President Reagan's programs and policies. One
volunteer aide said that the president had received
support on the line even on controversial issues such
as the president's economic program, El Salvador,
and Saudi Arabia, She said that while President
Reagan is pleased with the response on those issues,
he is very concerned with the negative responses
which are received.
Last week, the Michigan Student Assembly ap-
proved a plan to finance a poster campaign to en-
courage students to call the Comment Line.

Women gather for Detroit convention

By ALISA RAY
Thousands of women turned out this
weekend to speak with corporate
representatives and listen to women
leaders in industry, academe, and the
media at the first Women's Career
Convention in Detroit.
The massive convention, held in
Renaissance Center on Detroit's water-
front, was dotted with representatives
of at least 50 area and national cor-
porations, who met with convention-
goers, many of whom were University
students, about the future of jobs for
women.
"WE HAVE THE cream of the crop
- company presidents and senior
executives - telling individuals exactly
what they're looking for," said conven-

tion promoter Harriet Brumer.
Many of the firms at the convention
used the opportunity to recruit prospec-
tive employees, Brumer said. "Of
course, if impressions are made, there
will be the option for future appoin-
tments."
A wide range of corporations were
represented at the convention, Brumer
said, including Burroughs, Coca-Cola,
Ford Motor, Hewlett-Packard, and
Rockwell International. Also present
were officials from the University,
Michigan State University, and
Oakland University, who offered
information on various academic
programs offered at their schools.
THE SCHEDULE of the convention,
held Friday and yesterday, was made

up of a number of hour-long seminars,
panel discussions, and clinics focusing
on development of job-hunting skills,
resume writing, what to expect from an
MBA degree, and how to dress for the
business world. "We're covering every
aspect of the working woman," Brumer
said.
A special focus of the convention was
on women's careers in high-technology
industries. This reflects -a shift in the
traditional job market for women,
Brumer said, adding, "Women can go
into anything from glamour to robotics
now and shouldn't be afraid of
anything,"
Representatives from a number of
area and national high-tech firms were
present, including Sam Irwin, an Ann

Arbor businessman and a member of
the governor's special High Technology
Task Force. Irwin's task force is
charged with encouraging. high-tech
firms to locate -in Michigan and has
been coordinating an effort to build a
$200-million robotics research center in
Ann Arbor.
Other seminars at the convention in-
cluded women in health care,
engineering, the news media, public
relations and advertising, computers,
and the future of cable TV.
Jessica Savitch, an anchorwoman for
NBC news, delivered the keynote ad-
dress at the convention. And Kate
Rand Lloyd, the editor of Working
Woman magazine also spoke. to the
crowd.

Gargoyle f
By JANICE DE MAGGIO
One of the campus area's many public-
ations has pulled off quite a coup: Its
next issue, to be released tomorrow, in-
cludes a submission by Playwright Ar-
thur Miller. No, it isn't one of the local
highbrow literary magazines.
It is a periodical available not at
newsstands, but from hawkers on the
Diag. It offers off-beat humor, and has
dreams of becoming the nation's next
National Lampoon.
IT'S NO JOKE. The Gargoyle is run-
ning an authentic piece by Miller in
tomorrow's edition.
Miller wrote the article for the Gar-
goyle in 1937, when he was a student at
the University, and staff members say
they have the copyright - in case
Miller tries to deny it or threatens to
sue.
The Gargoyle has been around the
University - off and on - since 1906.
The sporadic history of the magazine is
the result of fluctuating interests
through the years, according to current
staff members.
THE LATEST revival occurred three
years ago when recent University
graduate Gil Borman stumbled across
several issues from the humor
magazine's heyday.
At first, things were rough. Hundreds
of unsold copies of the first several
issues still clutter the Gargoyle office.
"Do you want some firewood?" asks
Karen Goodburne, art editor for the
magazine. "Roll them (the extra issues)
up and use them as logs.''

eatures Arthur Miller

There used to be a stigma attached to
working for the Gargoyle, according to
senior editor Bill Smith.
"PEOPLE WOULD say it was racist
and sexist, and it was," explained artist
Terry LaBan. When he started selling
the magazine three years ago, people,
were "hesitant. Our reputation was
non-existent or not good," he says.
Now, according to LaBan, the
Gargoyle received criticism only "from
people who like to criticize and would
criticize anything anyway."
Sales have, in fact, turned around for
the last several issues. The biggest
problem lately, according to Business
Manager Susan Kling, is keeping
enough quarters ready for change. The
Gargoyle's last issue, which contained
the "The Real Men of Michigan" calen-
dar, sold out in two days.
ACCORDING TO Kling, the key to the
Gargoyle's recent success has not been
an improvement in quality - it has
always been good, she said. The reason
for skyrocketing sales is a new
marketing approach and better
organization in general, she says.
People are less likely to get lost in the
shuffle than they were in the past
because writers and artists are respon-
sible for every phase of their work,
right up to laying out and copyreading
the articles.
In fact, each staff member is listed as
some type of an editor in tomorow's
issue - from Misspelled Editor, to
Econ Fire Black Humor Editor, to
Editor in Charge of Pasting the Page

Numbers on the Bottom of the Pages.
ENTHUSIASM and "a certain level
of energy" is what keeps the Gargoyle
going, according to the staff. Ross
Lipman, as LSA freshman, wrote two
pages of the last, issue because the
magazine ignores hierarchy. People
can devote as much time as they want
to the magazine, but no one is ever paid.
The only reason the Gargoyle staff
might have trouble perpetuating the
magazine has to do with business not
enthusiasm or creativity, according to
Kling. There is a problem getting ad-
vertisers.
"Most local merchants are not openly
offended (by the Gargoyle's sometimes
no-holds-barred humor)," Kling. says.
But "because of the economy, they say
they have to budget several months in
advance, and they don't have the
money to advertise."
Kling said the Gargoyle desperately
needs some "business-types" to help
keep the magazine running. "They
don't even had to have a sense of
humor," she added.

Ford, UAW reach accord
aimed to save auto industry

(Continued from Page 1)
THE CONTRACT, to last 31 months
until September 1984, reportedly will
save Ford more than $1 billion.
The union also won an automatic
reopener of the contract in the event of
a major upturn in Ford sales.
The new agreement with Ford, which
says it lost more than $1 billion in 1981,
will be reviewed by the UAW executive
board at a meeting today in Detroit
before going to the union's Ford coun-
cil, which is scheduled to meet in
Chicago on Wednesday.

THE COUNCIL will vote whether to
recommend that Ford's 170,000 UAW-
represented rank-and-file ratify the
pact. Union officials say any such vote
likely would be completed in about two
weeks.
Economic portions of the agreement
were settled Thursday. Non-economic
issues, such as plant closings and the
company's practice of subcontracting
work to non-union plants, were left for
the final bargaining sessions on Friday
and yesterday.
