English professors may put in the
same number of hours per week as
engineering professors, but faculty
salaries at the University don't reflect
that.
Faculty members in the medical,
law, business, and engineering schools
are consistently paid more on the
average than their peers in the
humanities and fine arts. It's all a mat-
ter of supply and demand, University
officials say - high salaries are
necessary to lure and retain faculty
members with a high market value in
the business world.

Student activists

end lab

blockade

Defens resach os
vow future actions

by JIM SPARKS
A 48-hour blockade of Prof. Thomas
Senior's radiation laboratory ended
yesterday afternoon when 25 activists
marched out of the room chanting "We
shut it down."
In the sun for the first time since
Monday, the Progressive Student Net-
work hugged each other in front of the
East Engineering Building and flashed
peace signs.
"I'M GOING TO take a shower,
change my clothes and go get my bail
money," said LSA junior Lee
Winkelman.
Winkelman and the other group
members filed into the basement room
at 1:30 Monday, demanding an end to
defense research on campus.
Sitting in tight clumps at the entrance
to the lab, the protesters refused to let
graduate students in, although they
agreed to let University Safety Officers
in Tuesday night, after the officers for-
ced their way through the blockade
Monday night and again Tuesday mor-
ning.
As the group left the lab yesterday,
they walked through the Engineering Ar-
ch singing "We shut down Senior's lab,
down by the riverside."

An hour later, back at the lab, the
pink rose on the file cabinet was gone,
the masking tape peace sign was off the
locked front door, and a large bag of
.trash stood in the middle of the room.
"We're just back to business as
usual, I guess," said research assistant
Steve Pennock.
SENIOR, AN electrical and computer
engineering professor, who performs
research for NASA, the Air Force, the
Army, and Dikewood Industries (a
defense department subcontractor)
said his assistants performed
theoretical work while they were
denied access to the lab.
"In all honesty it-was not as disrup-
tive as they probably thought it was,"
he said. "We could, quite frankly, have
stood it out fora month."
In the lab, Senior exposes hobby shop
models of airplanes to microwaves
meant to simulate the electromagnetic
pulse given off by lightning. Senior said
he is trying to develop sensors to gauge
the impact of lightning on aircraft in
hopes of protecting their equipment
during thunderstorms.
THE demonstrators said the real
purpose of the research is to enable air-

research rise 20 percent,

by JACKIE YOUNG
Department of Defense-sponsored research at the University
increased roughly 20 percent this year to $6.2 million, putting
the University back to 1974 levels, a top University official
said yesterday.
Assistant Vice President for Research Alan Price said
DOD-sponsored research at the University is "pretty close"
to $6.2 million; which he said is "still much below the volume
of defense department research dollars given to the Univer-
sity in the early 70s.
Last year Pentagon-sponsored research climbed 14
percent to 5.2 million and made up close to 4 percent of the
total University research budget.

Marlene Konnar Bunch, a University information officer,
said the $6.2 million of defense department research money
this year is 4.7 percent of the total University research
budget. Research allocations from all sources at the
Univesity totalled $133 million this year, Bunch said. This in-
cludes private sources as well as state and local government
funding.
BUNCH SAID she received the research statistics from the
director's office of the University's Divison of- Research
Development and Adniinistration (DRDA).
She said Dennis Cebulski, an assistant to the director of

Asked if the administration is taking
them seriously, members of the
Progressive Student Network (PSN)
had only one collective answer at
yesteday's Meet the Press forum:
"They'd better!"
Only three hours after 26 PSN mem-
bers ended a three-day sit-in at a Un-
iversity laboratory to protest military
research on campus, approximately 15
members of the group declared the
protest a success. "We sent out a
message to the students and America to
work for world peace," said sit-in par-
ticipant Tom Mendelsohn.

PSN MEMBERS fielded questions
from 50 audience members that focused
primarily on the sit-in and PSN's views
on military research.
"The University's goals are to meet
human social needs and enhance life.
Military research cuts that off and
must be abolished," said Lee
Winkleman, who acted as the group's
informal spokesperson, and stated that
PSN is a "non-hierarchical
organization seeking programatic, not
ideological unity."
PSN members said the catalyst for
this year's frequent large-sclae

TODAY-
Defensive donation
HILE UNIVERSITY students are discovering
it's no easy thing to keep Department of Defen-
semoney away from Ann Arbor, other people in
thenatoare finding out it's no easier to put money
into the huge bureaucracy's coffers. Mike Whitesides of Phoenix,

Rudd's press secretary, George Clarke, said he has been
trying to deliver the money for the past week to a specific
fund. "It's a complicated procedure, believe me," he said,E
involving the Defense Department, Treasury, IRS and the
')ffice of Management and Budget. Whitesides .said heI
1dould throw a party at a local base if officials can't figure{
c what to do with the money. "And I'm a hell of a cook,"
the 35-year-old chef said.

into the air. "I want to be able to give her the best that I
possibly can. This is just a start," said the 29-year-old
public relations worker for the Boy Scouts of America. Fit-
zgibbon said he went to Band Director Nathan Judson to see
if he and the band members would agree to march down the
street and into the house to surprise Malloy. "I thought it
would be something different," Judson said. "The kids
thought it was romantic. Their first reaction was, 'Aw, isn't
that sweet.' " Malloy, 24, said she knew something was
going to happen but didn't know what to expect." I knew
