31% o Boo
didn't earn
Copyright 1982, The Michigan Daily
Almost one-third of the players who carried the
pigskin for Michigan football coach Bo Schembechler
failed to earn a sheepskin before moving on to the
pros, University records reveal.
Schembechler last month lashed out at a published
report that said 40 percent of former Wolverines who
play in the National Football League ne-Ter earned
degrees. Schembechler and other athk ic depar-
tment officials believe that the figure is ci ser to 15
BUT UNIVERSITY records show that both Schem-
bechler and Sports Illustrated, the magazine which
published the original figure, are wrong. Of the 26
former Wolverines presently in the NFL, 8 (31 per-

s pros
t degrees
cent) haven't earned degrees.
But Schembechler yesterday disputed the Daily's
findings. The coach said that three players who left
the University only a few credits short of earning
diplomas should be included among the group of
"I think it's unfair to say a guy hasn't graduated if
he's only got to make up an incomplete," Schem-
bechler said.
SCHEMBECHLER admitted that a 31 percent non-
graduation rate would be unacceptable. But because
he calculates the figure differently, he said, "I don't
feel bad" about the Daily's findings.
By the coach's count, former Wolverines Mike
Jolly, who now plays with the Green Bay Packers,
Stan Edwards, a rookie with the Houston Oilers, and
William "Bubba" Paris, of the San Francisco 49ers

President Reagan and French
President Francois Mitterrand, reac-
ting to the massacre of hundreds of'
Palestinian refugees in Beirut, announ-
ced yesterday that America, France
and Italy will send their peacekeeping

They made their announcements
simultaneously in Washington and,
Paris. In Rome, the Foreign Ministry
confirmed that Italy again would con-
tribute troops to-the three-nation peace-
keeping force.
IN THE two ravaged refugee camps
in Moslem west Beirut, Red Cross
workers continued their grisly task,
,ollecting 120 bodies and preparing a
mass grave for many of the victims.
Estimates of the number of-people slain
in the weekend massacre ranged from
at least 300 by the U.S. government to

1,400 by the Palestine Liberation
Virtually all the victims were
Palestinian or Lebanese Moslems, and
the slaughter has been blamed on
Lebanese Christian militias. Many
world leaders have said Israel must
share responsibility because it sent
army units into west Beirut last Wed-
nesday, the day after President-elect
Bashir Gemayel was killed in a bomb
blast. Gemayel headed the Christian
Phalange Party.
Meanwhile in Beirut, Amin
Gemayel's main challenger withdrew
from the presidential race yesterday,
all but ensuring the election of the 39-
year-old lawyer-businessman as leader
of this shattered nation, succeeding his
slain brother.

reviewing the natural resources school
and administrators studying the
futures of the other two programs will
listen to a full roster of students, faculty
members, and other professionals.
Most of the speakers will argue against
major budget cutbacks or elimination
of the targeted programs.
Although School of Natural Resour-
ces students are trying to make the
hearing a major show of support, some
of those scheduled to speak are worried
they will have little effect on the even-
tual decisions about their future. Some
claim the hearings, which are required
by University review procedures, are
little more than a formality in the
process of cutting a program.
IF THE professors and ad-
ministrators were truly concerned with
what the public had to say, said one
student, they would have allowed more
opportunities for public discussion
throughout the review, and would not
have so restricted the time allotted
speakers at the upcoming hearings.
"Ten minutes apiece-that's a joke,"
said Karen Herr, a junior in the School
of Natural Resources. "It's like a little
gesture that they gave us. It's too bad
they couldn't have had more feedback,
but four hoursh(the time allowed for the
hearing) is bullshit."

Non-tenure promotions in schools

under reN
The recent promotion without-tenure
of professors in schools currently under
budgetary review has stirred up con-
siderable controversy among Univer-
sity faculty.
Responding to the recent action, the
faculty Senate Assembly yesterday
unanimously endorsed a letter drafted
by the Senate's Advisory Committee on
University Affairs (SACUA) opposing
the promotions.
THE LETTER, addressed to Vice
President for Academic Affairs Billy
Frye, protests the promotion of four
assistant professors to associate
professors without the customary
benefits of tenure.
Three of the professors, Hiroko
Pijanowski and R. Dwayne Overmeyer
of the Art School, and Timothy White of
the School of Education, have been with
the University for four years. The four-
th, Prof. Patrick West of the School of
Natural Resources has taught here for
five years.
Tenurereview usually comes after
seven years of teaching at the Univer-




sity, although it can come before.
THE LATEST promotions are con-
troversial, however, because even
though the professors were recommen-
ded by their departments to be
promoted with tenure, the ad-
ministration chose not to give it, said
Prof. William Stebbins, chairman of
SACUA's Tenure Committee.
"You're not strictly violating the
Regents bylaws so you can do that
(promote faculty without tenure),"
Stebbins said, but added, "It's not a
good precedent to set.. . It's contrary
to the system."
Frye defended the administration's
decision to withhold tenure. "It's not in
any way against University policy," he
said. "It is unusual," he added.
FRYE EXPLAINED that while the
administration wanted the professors
to know they were considered qualified
for tenure, budgetary matters had to be
considered. "We're simply trying to
keep these open until the reviews are
The professors' recommendations for
tenure will be re-evaluated once the

reviews are completed, he added.
"I'm not supporting the ad-
ministration's move to do this," Steb-
bins said. "It's something they haven't
done before. It could lead to
FOR EXAMPLE, Stebbins said, the
administration might continue to defer
tenure for professors from schools that
might be under review in the future.
Frye also said he believed 'the
decision had set a precedent. "I think if
we do have departments or schools un-
der review (in the future), the
likelihood is that we would not like to
make final tenure decisions."
Other faculty members say this
method of promotion will weaken the
University's tenure policy. "It would
really undermine the tenure system,"
said Prof. Wilfred Kaplan, president of
the University's chapter of the
American Association of University
Professors and a Senate member.
. THERE IS still some legal confusion
surrounding the promotions. "It's a

television, but most University students polled said they
watched the Sunday Night Movie instead. Of those that.did
