Russian freighter sinks;

HALIFAX, Nova Scotia - Fifty-

fatalities to 119 in the storm-lashed
area in two days.

the history of offshore drilling, ex-
ceeded only by the loss of 123 men in
the capsizing of the rig Alexander
Kielland in the North Sea on March
27, 1980.
The Halifax Search and Rescue
Center said 21 bodies were
;;recovered from the freighter, 14 or
15 people were missing and five

were rescued from the 4,262-ton con-
tainer ship. A spokesman said the
exact number of people aboard the
Soviet ship was not known, but he
believed it to be 40 or 41, not 37 as
originally believed.
The center said two ships were
hunting for survivors, that another
ship and a plane were heading to the
scene but that freezing conditions
made it too dangerous for helicop-
ters to fly and that more blinding
snow was expected. . \

salary increases for faculty memi-

Recommendations are then forwar-

to the appropriate University vice-
president, Allmand said.
While criteria vary somewhat bet-
ween departments, an informal check
with several department chairpersons
revealed three basic criteria-resear-
ch, teaching, and service.
A similar set of criteria is employed
by many other University departments,
ranging from the Law School to
physical education. In fact, many other
colleges and universities use the same
standards sto decide which faculty
members get the pay raised and the
Officials from Michigan State
University, Ohio State University, and
the California university system all
cited the same three criteria: research,
teaching, aid service.
Many of the same standards used to
decide pay raises are used in the
decisions over whether or not an in-
dividual professo4 will be granted
The procedure for granting tenure is

similar to the merit salary increase
procedure, but is an entirely separate
process, Allmand said. It is ususally
granted when andassistant professor is
promoted to associate professor or full
professor. As withsmerit, criteria are
set by the individual departments.
Tenure review starts at the depar-
tment level and is tied to promotion,
Allmand said. The chairperson and
executive committee forward recom-
mendations to the appropriate school or
college. The dean then forwards a
recommendation to the appropriate
University vice president.
The vice presidential office then
reviews each tenure candidate. Final
recommendations are presented to the

Skadden called tenure review,
"an evaluation of everything an in-
dividual has done throughout his
career." He said the purpose was to
decide if an individual would continue
to remain outstanding in all areas.

affairs, said, "We have not been affec.,
ted at all, except on the cocktail cir-
cuit." He said merit pay increases for
medical faculty members ranged from
"nothing to substantial."
Although many department chair-
persons said public salaries have
caused no problems in their depar-
tments, some said the publication had
created new problems. "It made a lot
of people very unhappy and some very
bitter," said political science chairman
Sam Barnes. "It's a public status
ranking, so to speak," he said.
Terrance Sandalow, dean of the
School . of . Law,, said publication has
caused problems at the law school. "It
has certainly made it more difficult to
have disparities in merit increases," he
Echoing Barnes, Sandalow said that
people had been hurt by "a community
exposure of judgments made about
them by people responsible for salary
The officials at Michigan State
University, Ohio State University, and
the University of California-Berkeley
said public disclosures of salaries had
1not caused them any problems. Private
colleges and universities are not bound
by law to disclose payroll figures.
One thing that becomes immediately
apparent upon examining the salary
structure is the wide disparity between
professors in different departments.
Economics Prof. Ronald Teigen,
hairman of the Committee on the
Economic Status of the Faculty at-
tVibuted these differences to what he
termed "marketability."
Teigen explained that marketability.
Pefers to the demand for an individual's

services. A medical doctor, for exam-
plI, could make far more money
working outside the University than
could an English professor. "People in
humanities don't have that many out-
side options," he said.
Professors in the humanities are, as a
result, among the lowest paid. Not sur-
prisingly, they were less enthusiastic in
supporting the need for salary
disparities than those in higher-paid
fields like law or engineering.
"Some differences are inevitable,
given the market," said English
Chairman John Knott, the former ac-
ting LSA dean. "I'd like to see LSA get a
larger share, and the humanities within
LSA get a larger share. People in
humanities departments tend to be un-
der-rated," he said. Shapiro called
salary disparities "a fact of life." He
said, "The differentials are not a policy
as much as an outcome of an attempt to
put together the best quality education
and staff we can."
Sandalow agreed with Shapiro.
"Disparity is essential if we're going to
remain a major university," he said.

George Haddad, chairman of the
Department of Electrical and Com-
puter Engineering, called the disparity
"very fair. I really think we have to
take into account considerations of
market value, otherwise we won't be
successful in keeping or attracting top
faculty members. I'm all for it."
At Michigan State University,
Assistant Provost Robert Banks said
top professors probably make about,
$80,000, as compared to $120,000 at the
University of Michigan. He said,
however, that this figure does not in-
clude income from outside sources, or
moonlighting. Dorothy Jackson, a
spokeswoman for Ohio State University
said Ohio State recently rescin-
ded a $55,000 pay ceiling, but that
anyway. Most earn between $30,000 and
$50,000 she said. Again, this does not in-
clude outside income.
The 'system of universities in Califor-
nia has no disparity, according to
Aasen. He said there was a nine-month
faculty pay scale state-wide. However,
he noted that there were separate
