A recent study of the country's
graduate schools had many inherent
problems and will probably be used in-
correctly to rank the schools in the
future, a University dean said last
The survey, done by a coalition of four
-national academic organizations,
ranked University graduate programs
eighth among all institutions nation-
SPEAKING before a crowd of about
30 people at the Rackham building,
Alfred Sussman, dean of Rackham
School for Graduate Studies, said many
of the people who participated in the
study objected to the section involving
the reputation of the schools.
"Reputation study achieves no con-
sensus about quality," Sussman told
the group made up mostly of heads of
the "halo effect," which causes depar-
tments to be ranked highly because
they aretpart of a prestigiousbuniver-
sity, Sussman said. This effect is very
difficult to eliminate, he added.
A SIMILAR problem arises from
"the alumni effect," according to
Sussman. This results from people
ranking the schools they attended higher
than other schools. this is also difficult
to control, he said.
In addition, Sussman said there is a
tendency for the same universities to be
ranked in the upper part of all sections
of the survey. "There is a sameness
about universities.. . of those in the top
ten," he said.
There is also concern over how long it
will take schools which were ranked
low to improve their rating since the
studies are done so infrequently,
much to help these schools improve
A SURVEYsRATING how well a depar-
tment trained its graduate students
might be more useful, Sussman
Biochemistry Prof. Dale Oxender,
speaking briefly before Sussman,
praised the University's plan to set up a
molecular genetics center that involves
about 40 faculty members from seven
different schools within the University.
Funds for the center, which Oxender
described as a "unique, University
wide" program, will come from both
the University and alumni.
The problem facing the center presen-
tly is to "make enzymes that have some
practical purpose but still have interest
for geneticists," according to Oxender.
He also stressed the need for resear
chers to persuade corporations to sup-
port their studies.

fails to meet the requirements can still
be admitted, but must forfeit his
freshman year of athletic eligibility. He
would also be denied an athletic
scholarship his first year.
"The thing that people don't realize is
this has nothing to do with admission,"
said Canham. "This has to do only with
an NCAA grant-in-aid and immediate
"The reason I'm not as upset about it
as some of these black leaders is sim-
ply, I think, that they've un-
derestimated the ability of the black
kids and their ability to accept a
challenge. This thing is going to be
phased in over four years. And if you
tell somebody that he's got four years to
prepare for a test, hell, he ought to be
able to do something about it."
IT IS DIFFICULT to predict the
possible effects of the ruling because
there are already rumblings that it will
be challenged in court, but if it stands
there is little doubt thatbsome athletes
will have to alter their college plans,
according to Canham.
"I do think that a lot of inner-city kids
are going to be inconvenienced. Some of
them are going to have to go to com-
munity colleges or junior colleges for a
year or, if they are accepted at four-
year schools, sit out without any finan-
cial aid. Now what the hell is the big
problem there? I did that myself."
A bigger problem might develop for
college coaches who may be forced to
watch as their national championship
hopes flee to junior colleges. And
Michigan, which has long frowned on
the use of junior college transfers on
athletic teams, may be forced to
change its philosophy.
"I THINK WE probably will look at
junior college kids more," said
Canham. "That's about the only effect
on us I can think of. We're going to con-
tinue to recruit the good athlete who we
think can graduate from the University
of Michigan - that's our basic
Indeed, Michigan athletic personnel
are not altogether convinced that
Michigan will be greatly affected by the
"The fellows that we go after are
aware of the situation," said Fritz
Seyferth, recruiting coordinator for Bo
Schembechler's Wolverines. "Bo is
determined to make the players aware
and make sure they graduate."
THERE IS ALSO the question of
whether or not a coach would be willing
to gamble on an athlete who he knows
will be ineligible to compete his fresh-
man year. If that athlete is admitted,
there is the added problem of financing
his first year - a problem Canham sees
opening up whole new areas of
' I think it's going to lead to a lot of
cheating. I think you're going to see
phony loan programs set up and I think
you're going to find alumni paying kids
under the table to go to school their
freshman year," Canham said.
Canham's fears echo the sentiments
of University director of undergraduate
admissions, Cliff Sjogren. "I suspect it
will be much easier to cheat now," said
Sjogren, who has publicly denounced
the ruling. "These are the things we
will have to contend with."
IF CANHAM, SJOGREN, and Seyfer-
th had their way, the whole problem
would not exist. Most people involved
with Michigan athletics support a
return to the old rule which
automatically makes freshmen
ineligible to compete athletically - a
possibility that died with the institution
of the new rule.
"In my opinion, the first step is to
make freshmen ineligible,' said
Canham, "and you wouldn't have to
worry about this.
"The dumbest thing the NCAA has
ever done was to make freshmen
eligible. How can you justify it when
you have a kid who plays in three foot-
ball games before he finds where the
CANHAM SEETHES WHEN asked
about the threat by black colleges that
they will withdraw from the NCAA if
the ruling isn't changed. "They're
whistling Dixie and they know it," he
said. "First of all, if all the black
colleges withdrew from the NCAA, the
NCAA wouldn't even miss them. That's
not the way to do things - pick up your
marbles and go home.
"I don't think it's perfect. Frankly, I
think the presidents overreacted to the
terrible publicity athletics have had.
But I do think the legislation was good.
It had to be done."
