GOODMAN also said minority
students were selecting "predominan-
tly white institutions that are in the
same league as the University or
predominantly black schools" rather
than the University.
Because of the public nature of the in-
stitution, the appearance is that we're
competing with the black institutions,"
Goodman said. He called the situation
"ifortunate."
At the same time, it was announced
that the University's unit with the
highest black enrollment, the School of
1Education, where 15.8 percent of the
students are black, will be reviewed for
possibly major budget cutbacks.
MICHIGAN Student Assembly mem-
ber Valerie Mitms attacked the Univer-
sity's lack of minority faculty and staff
members, saying that the problem
could only be remedied through "an
aggressive affirmative action policy."
Minority Affairs Coordinator Ken
lReeves called the report "a
smokescreen," saying that the report
obscured the fact that black enrollment
has fallen by emphasizing minority
enrollment as a whole.
"The University is trying to lump
them all together and then say they've
reached their quota," Reeves said.
WHILE THERE has been an increase
in the number of Asian students at the
University, the enrollment of other
ininorities has not shown improvement,
resulting in an overall decrease of 0.2
percent in the number of minority
students at the Ann Arbor campus.

High technology conference

I6

to present a variety of

By SCOTT STUCKAL
A variety of views on Michigan's ef-
forts to attract high technology in-
dustries to the state will be presented
tomorrow in a day-long forum at
Rackham Hall.
The forum, entitled "Robots and High
Technology: A new direction for
Michigan?", is organized by students in
the School of Natural Resources and is
an attempt to show all sides of the im-
pact of high technology on Michigan.
"IT IS important that students
become aware of what's going on
because a lot of the developments have
been behind the scenes," said Glen
Chown, who helped put together the
conference. Chown and Rob Wilke,

another of the conference organizers,
stressed they are trying to establish "a
framework for a dialogue" between
students, business, and labor about
high technology and its ramifications.
"It is important to take an inter-
disciplinary approach," said Wilke.
"We want to be close to the labor side
of the issue - worker displacement ...
and we want to show that there are
some positive things too like jobs being
created," Wilke said.
The forum will begin with an in-
troductory speech by University
President Harold Shapiro at 9 a.m. in
Rackham Auditorium. Speakers in the
morning will include Arch Naylor, ac-
ting director of the Industrial

opinion
Technology Institute, and Harley
Shaiken of the Massachusetts Institute
of Technology.
"WHAT I want to do is tell people
about where ITI came from and what
its goals are," said Naylor.
In the afternoon, the conference will
hold a series of workshops beginning at
1:30 p.m. at Rackham and the Angell
Hall auditoriums.
The Robotics and high technology
forum will conclude with a discussion
entitled, "Michigan's Ailing Economy:
Is Robotics the Cure?" Speakers will
include Al Bogdan, director of the
Michigan office of Economic Develop-
ment and University Economics Prof.
Frank Stafford.

DURING YESTERDAY'S Regents' meeting, Vice President for Student
Services Henry Johnson urges the centralization of the process of minority

recruitment and retention.
minority groups are;
" Enrollment of black students at the
Ann Arbor campus dropped 5.2 per-
cent; undergraduate enrollment sank
6.9 percent and graduate enrollment
plunged 10.2 percent.
" There was no overall percentage
change in the number of American In-
dian students, but there was a 4.6 per-
cent decrease at the undergraduate
level and a 7.1 percent increase at the
graduate level.
" Overall Hispanic enrollment in-
creased 0.9 percent; the number of un-
dergraduate Hispanics dropped 2.8
percent and the number of Hispanic
graduate students increased 13.1 per-
cent.
GOODMAN said there is "no single
explanation for our inability to achieve
our goals." He said this university is
"one of the few that annually is willing
to talk about our effort, both the good
and the bad." He said this is a situation
that 'works against our own best in-
terest."
Goodman asserted the focus of the
University's efforts -to recruit
minority students by using various
projects and programs - "will not
have a short-term payoff," but in the
long run will "build a base of students."

Henry Johnson, vice-president for
Student Services, said the University
should "develop strategies to more ef-
fectively recruit minority students."
He said "there's a lot of activity going
on," but was critical about the Univer-
sity's planning of minority recruitment
efforts.
JOHNSON said one reason for the
planning deficiency was "the decen-
tralized nature of the University."
"We are not as well informed as we
could be," he said. He noted that most
of the schools and colleges do their own
admissions independently.

islature decide not to repay the fourth
quarter appropriations it has withheld
from the University.
Despite these bleak projections, Frye
said the administration is committed to
keeping the salaries of faculty members
at a reasonable level.
"Without question, this must be our
highest priority," he said. "Despite the
adjustments that must be made for the
state's fiscal crisis ... it is not tenable to
let our salaries slip further behind at
this time."
FRYE SAID the Regents' failure in
recent years to increase salaries has
caused the Univesity to fall significan-
tly far behind its academic and in-

dustrial competitors.
"We shall suffer loss in quality if we
do not respond now," he said.
But, he added, "holding down tuition
is almost equally as high a priority as is
the salary program,"
But, Frye warned, the University's
fixed costs-such as utility payments,

previous financial commitments, and
promised staff benefits-may eat up so
much of the appropriations that the
priority items of faculty salaries and a
smaller tuition increase cannot be
achieved. He added these fixed costs
have increased $11.3 million in the past
year.

Tanter loses post on NSC

that he was transferred because of his
strong pro-Israel beliefs. Newspaper
reports yesterday said Clark bowed to
State Department pressure to move
Tanter because department officials
wanted the NSC "to give Arab and
Israeli interests equal weight."
"You just don't know what all the
members of the government are

thinking," said Tanter. "My views on
Israel are the same as the president's.
I'm his man. I reflect his rules and
policies."
Tanter said rumors that he is not
pleased with the switch are false. "I
was very happy with the new position,"
he said. "This is an opportunity for
change. It's a priviledge to move up."
