The University's president still
m~akes more money than the football
caah, but another official has slipped
in as the highest paid administrator in
this year's faculty and staff salary
race.
President Harold Shapiro is making
$86,877, just $1,800 more than Coach Bo
Schembechler ($85,030). Schem-
bechler's salary skyrocketed 40 percent
over his $60,000 salary last year, largely

1 due to the threat that he would take a
coaching job at high-spending Texas
A&M University in January, 1982. The
southern school reportedly had offered
him a package worth more than
$225,000 per year.
SHAPIRO AND the other University

But med prof tops
all- with $130,000

executive officers - the six vice
presidents - all received a three per-
cent salary hike in January, along with
the rest of the non-faculty staff of the
University.
The University's newest executive of-
ficer, Vice President for University
Relations and Development Jon
Cosovich, makes $90,000 per year, to
put him at the top of the central ad-
ministration's pay ladder. Shapiro said
the new vice president's high salary is
due to pressures from other univer-
sities. "We must remain competitive if
we want to attract and keep top-caliber
executives," Shapiro said.
Salary hikes for University deans
ranged as high as 15 percent this year.
The medical school's acting dean,

Peter Ward, tops all the school and
college chiefs at $96,120. Law School
Dean Terrence Sandalow received the
15 percent pay boost to $87,430.
THE DEANS of the Schools of Art and
Education - two of three schools slated
for major budget cuts - received the
lowest pay increases this year. Art
Dean George Bayliss received a 4.4
percent raise to $50,217 making him the
lowest paid dean. Education Dean Joan
Stark gets $61,528, placing her 13th out
of the 17 deans.
James Crowfoot was recently named
dean of the School of Natural Resour-
ces, which is the other school under
review for major budget cuts. His
salary as dean was unavailable, but as
a professor, Crowfoot made $32,700.

Critics of the University ad-
ministration ,often say that the
executive officers are paid too much
and that they should make personal
sacrifices during the University's
present budget crunch.
ADMINISTRATORS polled this week
gave the idea of pay cuts for themselves
mixed review.
"Sure I'd consider it," said Richard
Kennedy, vice president for state
relations, who is the second lowest paid
executive at $58,890.
Vice President for Student Services
Henry Johnson, who at $55,960 is the
lowest paid executive, concurred with
Kennedy, "but the president would
have to ask me."
PRESIDENT SHAPIRO said that he
has considered the idea, "But in the
long run, that would be detrimental to
the University." He said the gesture
might have some "momentary sym-
bolism," but added, "We cannot attract
top-caliber administrators who think

Billy Frye, vice president for academic affairs and provost says he is "per-
sonally offended" by the suggestion that adminstrators be singled out for
pay cuts.

Research'
key to
y~ .
faculty pay
By LISA CRUMRINE
"Publish or perish" has long been the motto of the
academics world, and professors say the maxim is
nowhere so true as with faculty pay increases.
Research is considered the most important factor in
determining faculty salaries, followed by teaching
quality, University service, and work with graduate
students. These are the main ingredients in the magic
formula used to calculate pay raises under the Univer-
sity's merit-based salary program.
WHILE EMPHASIZING faculty achievement, the
merit system downplays seniority and administrative
positions within a department or school.
The merit-based system allows the University to justify -
giving large pay increases to faculty members who excel
in their field, thus keeping the University competitive
with peer schools in the quest for top professors.
In order to maintain a top quality institution, many
deans and professors say the University must reward
faculty members who help achieve that quality.
"OUR WAY OF recruiting faculty depends on

Art school
dean vows
to fight cuts

By GLEN YOUNG
School of Art students and fac-
ulty have decided they are not going
to take the recommendation for a 25
percent budget cut lying down. At
least that was the mood conveyed at
yesterday's mass meeting of the
group at the Chrysler Center on North
Campus.
MORE THAN 300 people filled the
building's auditorium to discuss the
proposed $350,000 cut in the school's
$1.5 million budget. The recommen-
dation of the University's top budget

plan, was released earlier this week.
THE committee's recommendation
also suggested the school cut it's un-
dergraduate enrollment from the
current 571 students to about 300
students, cut the number of faculty
from 37 to 22, and move to enroll more
non-art majors in the school's classes.
"They want to cut our budget by 25
percent and cut our faculty by nearly
40 percent. Now any rational person
looking at this would see their
calculations have a large margin or
error," said School of Art Dean
George Bayliss.
He said the school would willingly

Meeting for pot law
draws token response

By HALLE CZECHOWSKI
As the battle heats up over Ann Ar-
bor's $5 pot law, groups favoring the
law are having a hard time mobilizing
students against repeal efforts.
A mass meeting last night of the
Committee Against Recriminalization
drew only 10 supporters to the Michigan
Union's Pendleton Room.
COMMITTEE COORDINATOR Scott
Prosterman said he was disappointed
with the low turnout, "but I think it
gives us a good nucleus to work with."
Ann Arbor voters will decide April 4
whether or not they want the law
changed: repeal of the ordinance will
be proposed on this year's city election
ballot.
Prosterman said he was not worried
that the poor attendance indicated a
lack of interest on the part of students.

"And I think there is a sufficient basis
in the Progressive Student Network (a
student activist group) to put on an ef-
fective campaign."
THE COMMITTEE decided it was
too late to start a successful voter
registration drive, as citizens must
register by March 7 to be eligible to
vote. Prosterman added that much of
the committee consists of people
already active in a campaign to force
weatherization of Ann Arbor housing.
The combined efforts of both groups
have registered nearly 1,000 students,
according to one voter registrar.
Prosterman said the committee will
direct most of its efforts toward fun-
draising. They will be asking for direct
donations and selling buttons which
read, "$5 is FINE with me."
"(The buttons) are a real hot item,

especially with people out of Ann Arbor
- people in Detroit," said Prosterman.
The committee also hopes for a good
crowd - preferably a button-wearing
crowd - at this year's April 1 Hash
Bash. But the group will encourage
people not to smoke at the annual event.
THE HASH Bash "is just bait for the
other side," Prosterman said. "The
fact that the Hash Bash is three days
before the elections is an unfortunate
coincidence."
Prosterman said the committee is
concerned that it won't be able to
motivate students against repeal until
it's too late. "Once the law is repealed,
and (a new law) is arbitrarily enforced,
the people will get excited. We need to
get them excited now," said Proster-
man.

Strangers in the Night
FIFTY YEARS AGO today Robert Choate,

special date blossomed into a happy marriage

disgruntled non-smokers. Thomas Templin said he inven-
ted the device to give smokers a dose of their own medicine
- smelly air. The product, called "Revenge," is small
enough to fit in a pocket. It contains 75 squirts of a pungent
pine-smelling spray. Although the spray is non-flammable,
it does irritate the eyes. "You're not supposed to spray it on
the cigarette to extinguish it or in the face of a smoker,"

$350 for the registered 9-month-old Doberman, and the ac-
cessories accounted for the rest of the loss. The animal was
trained to take food only when Scaward approves, so he
doubted that it could be lured away with food. "And if a
stranger came around, he'd let you know about it. He'd go
as far as he could on his chain to try to get to the fence," he
said. Scaward has offered a $200 reward for return of hte-
