Faculty urge salary
By SHARON SILBAR
The University's top faculty committee urged the
University's regents to place faculty salaries as a
high priority - "perhaps second after fixed costs" -
when they made their annual salary request at the
regent's monthly meeting yesterday.
"Faculty overall, have demonstrated forebearance
as the University has undergone serious fiscal trials
during the past several years," said Cheryl Easley, a
nursing professor and member of the Senate Ad-
visory Committee on University Affairs (SACUA).
"It is however, discouraging to perceive faculty
compensation to be a residual item of budget plan-
ning," she added.
after fixed costs'
THIS YEAR, faculty salaries rose an average of
about 5 percent - a figure higher than the inflation
rate but not enough to make up for deficiencies in
previous years, faculty members say.
A report released earlier this week from a SACUA
subcommittee said that University faculty members
only make 93 percent of what professors do at peer
institutions - both public and private.
"The implications of these trends for faculty
quality and morale are, we believe, quite serious,"
the report concluded.
Easley also requested administrative attention to
the problem of eroding fringe benefits. Although in th
past, fringe benefits have compared favorably to
other institutions. Easly said those benefits hav
decreased significantly in the past few years, and
they no longer make up for comparatively small
Regent Thomas Roach (D-Saline) acknowledged
SACUA's request, but said they could not be oblivious
to the obvious attempts made by Billy Frye, vice
president for academic affairs and provost, in the,
area of faculty salaries.

Economy zips past predictions
WASHINGTON - Government figures indicated yesterday the economy
grew at a brisk 7.9 percent annual rate in the third quarter, retaining more of
the previous quarter's zip than most analysts envisioned. President
Reagan's spokesman said "The economy has moved out of the recovery
phase and into expansion."
The Commerce Department, in its preliminary estimate for the July-
September quarter, said growth came from the rebuilding of inventories by
businesses and from all categories of final sales except foreign trade.
Secretary Malcolm Baldrige said "we are seeing a normal, healthy
recovery" that is in no apparent danger of stalling or heating up inflation.
At the White House, spokesman Larry Speakes was even more upbeat,
saying the third-quarter figure "surpasses the peak quarter of production
before the recession. We have made up for what we lost, and reached a new
high in national economic output."
Army orders curfew in Grenada
BRIDGETOWN, Barbados - Scattered gunfire broke out in Grenada yes-
terday, a day after the army killed Prime Minister Maurice Bishop and top
leaders of his faction in a power struggle that ruptured the Marxist ruling:
The army placed the island under 24-hour curfew and warned that
violators would be shot on sight.
In Washington, White House spokesman Larry Speakes said the turmoil on
the Caribbean island - where there are some 1,000 Americans, many of
them medical students - "has raised our concerns to the highest level."
State Department Officials, who spoke on condition they not be identified,
said "there are suspicions" but no evidence that Cuba mighthave played a
role in the upheaval.
The gunfire crackled in the early morning, said sources in Grenada's
capital of St. Georges, but no one ventured outdoors because the army led by
Gen. HudsonAustin threatened to shoot anyone judged to be disturbing the
McDonald's seeks liquor license
LOS ANGELES - The McDonald's Corp., the nation's fast-food giant, has
applied for a license to sell wine and beer at one of its California stores, the
first attempt in. the United States to put booze under the Golden Arches,
company officials said yesterday.
Spokesman Steve Leroy, from McDonald's headquarters in Oak Brook,
Ill., said the owner of the store in the Sierra resort community of Mammoth
applied earlier this month for a beear and wine license from the state.
Alcohol Control Board.
"Basically, the application was made in Mammoth because of the unique
demographics in the area," Leroy said.
"It's an adult recreation location and a large number of tourists are in the
But Leroy said there are no implications at this time" that the same ser-
vice might be offered at the chain's other 6,000 restaurants nationwide.
"There is no similar service in the McDonald's in the United States, but
outside the U.S. we hve served both beer and wine in our restaurants in
Germany and France since we began operations in those countries."
Company documents disclose
GM warned of faulty brakes
WASHINGTON - General Motors Corp. test drivers and internal company
documents repeatedly warned of brake locking problems on 1980 X-body
automobiles before the cars went into general production, according to GM
files made public yesterday.
The papers showed key GM executives were warned of the seriousness of
the problem just before production at a Dec. 10, 1978, meeting in Phoenix,
Ariz., that included GM President F.M. "Pete" Estes.
The documents were ordered unsealed by U.S. District Judge Thomas
Jackson, who is hearing a suit brought by the Justice Department, seeking a
recall of 1.1 million X-body cars.
The department also is asking that GM be ordered to pay $4 million in
damages, alleging the manufacturer failed to act on the braking problem
and later withheld informaton from federal officials.
Among the documents released were test-driver logs from 1978 that show
drivers in at least 35 cases complained of brakes locking and causing control
GM has denied the allegations, saying the company did not know about the
X-body brake problem before production. GM has said it will vigorously
defend itself against the suit.
