By LAUREL ADELMAN
Michigan's industries are only hur-
ting themselves by opposing
automation, the director of a local'
technology institute said last night
If the state is to become a leader in
high technology fields such as robotics,
people must become less concerned
with the problem of displaced workers,
according to Jerome Smith, director of
the Ann Arbor-based Industrial
"THE FAILURE to automate will be
worse for labor than automation," he
told an audience of about 30 gathered Peter Eckstein, executive director of Go

Non-members will be able to vote on
the contract if they fill out the ap-
plication to become a union member
that will accompany the ballot. The
deadline for voting is Saturday, Nov. 12
at 1 p.m. Members can vote by mailing
the ballot back to the union or by
placing it in a drop box in the lobby of
the LSA building by Nov. 11th.
UNION MEMBERS can also vote
from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Nov. 12th at

Elections Committee will begin coun-
ting the ballots after 1 p.m.
The contract, which would run
through March, 1985, calls for a 5.1 per-
cent pay hike, a 7 percent reduction in
tuition payments, and a guarantee of a
net gain between salary and tuition in-
creases. The pact also widens
provisions for grievances by graduate
assistants in disciplinary actions.
Currently, grievance proceedings are
only set up for terminations.
The contract also will give teaching
assistants a voice in departmental
policy concerning class size. Where no
policy exists, the University would "ac-

MOST STUDENTS who took prep
courses agreed that the programs were
helpful. Mike Mithen, an LSA senior
who took the Dental Admissions Test
(DAT) after enrolling in a Kaplan cour-
se, said the preparation definitely im-
proved his score. "I think I did better
than if I hadn't taken the course," he
Paul Morton, an LSA senior, said he
was pleased with his results on the Law
School Admissions Test (LSAT) after
taking the Kaplan course, but he
thought the high cost involved made the
system unfair to some students.
"These courses should not exist. But if
they are to exist, they should somehow
be made available to everyone," he
Spearin-Hurst responded that
scholarship programs are available to
tively encourage" departments to
develop one, according to Abraham
Ehrlich, a GEO negotiator.
THE LAST contract agreement bet-
ween GEO and the University was
defeated by the membership in October
1982. At that time, a group of GEO
members lobbied heavily against the
contract, calling for better pay
provisions, exemption from tuition, and
substantive affirmative action plans.
There has been no organized opposition
to the current proposal thus far.
Ehrlich called the latest proposal "a
reasonable first step. We get enough in
terms of initial things. (Provisions of
the contract)set precedent and they set
the stage for future negotiations."
A summary. of the contract, which em-
phasizes pay, tuition, and class size
issues will accompany the ballot,
The Elections Committee's in-
structions for voting includes the
following message: "Whether for or
against ratification, the vote of every
member is needed. Without a contract,

tuition waiver, benefits, etc., won for
TA's and SA's (Student Assistants) are
students based on financial need and
academic status. "We have never tur-
ned away a student who has come to us
for help," she said.
Cost for the programs range from
$250 to as much as $600.
NOT EVERYONE agrees that the
courses are worth the money, though.
Victor Valentino, another LSA senior
who took the LSAT, said that if he had
to do it again, he wouldn't have spent
the money. "The test is based on skills
you have picked up," he said. "It is
hard for (the prep courses) to coach
you on that."
Valentino said that if he had to do it
again he would buy a preparatory book
and study the material on his own.
Although Spearin-Hurst would not
discount the content of such books, she
said, "How many people are going to sit
down and really study them?"

Paris to consider their response to Sun-
