Mondale, Hart unite

By SEAN JACKSON
Next week's visit from Democratic
residential Candidate Walter Mondale
has pushed campus Mondale-Ferraro
supporters into a beat-the-clock frenzy
to prepare the city and campus for the
visit.
But with volunteers racing around
campus passing out leaflets and posting
signs no one has really figured out why
Mondale and sen. Gary Hart (D-Colo.)
are coming to campus Tuesday.
According to Mark Blumenthal, an
SA senior, and the former state coor-
dinator for Hart's primary campaign,
Mondale's visit to campus was sparked
by University students' loyalty to Hart.
"But a spokesman for the Mondale-
Ferraro campaign said Mondale's visit
Pro rep or

used University stationery to indicate
the University viewpoint" on the
proposal.
Price wrote in an August 28 memo
that there are six major flaws with.
making Ann Arbor a "nuclear-free
zone," and listed each of them. The
Memo was sent to people who had ex-
pressed an interest in joining "Citizens
Against Research Bans," a group for-
med specifically to prevent the passage
of the charter amendment.
"OBVIOUSLY, the University has
taken a stand," Kock said.
Although Shapiro has stated that he
personally opposes the proposal, the
University regents have not taken any
formal position on the amendment.
Also at yesterday's meeting, Prof.
Beth Reed, chairperson of the Commit-

is a campaign stop in a key state. This
will be the former-vice-president's
fourth visit to the state.
"The important think is Hart's ap-
pearance with Mondale," Blumenthal
said.
Four out of five votes from the
student precincts were cast for Hart in
the Democratic primaries, Blumenthal
said. "His presence here will help (get)
his constituency to vote for Mondale."
Hart's Michigan campaign was led
by University students. "We ran the
state campaign with the U-M studen-
ts," said Blumenthal. "That crowd is
going to be college age and young
voters, those are the one that Mondale
is trying to reach," he said.
Tom Howlett, the state press
secretary for Mondale-Ferraro sees
things somewhat differently. "Ann Ar-

bor is recognized around the state, the
nation, and even the world. . . as an in-
tellectual center," he said. "It is
another attempt to reach an important
part of teh state," he explained, adding
that Michigan has been labeled one of
the five "battleground" states by the
Mondale campaign. "The effects of
Mondale's appearance will be felt
there's no question they'll last until the
election. ,
"It is exciting that Hart will be on
campus given thefact that there are a
lot of Hart supporters (in Ann Arbor)
said Howlett. It's exciting that Hart is
going to be there enforcing the fact that
he is firmly behind Mondale," which
will demonstrate the broad support of
the Democratic Party behind Mondale.
Mondale's appearance in Ann Arbor

or rally
is just another visit to a key state and
shows the committment of the
Democratic Party to just about every
part of the country, Howlett said.
"Democrats are not ruling out anyone
but the multimillionaire. Those who
supported Hart in the plrimaries will
support Mondale-Ferraro."
Mondale's itinerary has not yet been
finalized and Secret Service officials
would not elaborate on the type of
security precautions they'll be, taking
for the Mondale-Hart visit. The Secret
Service which is in charge of Mondale's
security, will also be aided by the
Michigan State Police, the Washtenaw
County Sheriff Department, the Ann
Arbor Police and the University's
security staff.

ts on faculty salary discrepancies

tee on the Economic Status of the
Faculty, reported that the University's
faculty salaries lag far behind those of
its peer institutions.
"Although we have regained some of
the ground that was lost, via tuition in-
creases, budget cuts, and reallocations,
the real salary levels today still remain
below those of the early '70s," she said.
"We are very concerned that we
develop a salary program that does not
severely compromise the University's
ability to attract and retain the best
faculty."
REGENT Thomas Roach (D-Saline)
acknowledged low faculty salaries are
a "very difficult -problem for us," but
placed much of the blame on the "great
inadequacy of state support over the
last 20 years."

According to Reed's report, the
average full professor at the University
earns about $45,000 per year, while the
average professor at Harvard earns
$59,000.
The biannual report also showed a
great discrepancy between the salaries
of male and female professors at the
University. There were only 71 female
professors at the University in 1983-84,
compared to 1,040 male professors; the
mean salary of women was $44,000, while
the mean salary of men was $52,000.
IN OTHER action at yesterday's
public comments session, LSA senior
Lee Winkleman spoke out against the
University's proposed code of non-
academic conduct. "We, the students,
feel the code is fundamentally flawed,

and there's a consensus on that," he
said.
Winkleman said the Rules of the
University Community, which were
passed in the early seventies, are suf-
ficient to deal with any safety problems
at the University.
Tension flared between Winkleman
and Regent Deane Baker (R-Ann Ar-
bor) when Baker asked Winkleman if he
was a member of the Progressive
Student Network, an activist group.
Winkleman replied that he is not
currently a member of the group, but
that he had been in the past. After the
meeting, Winkleman confronted Baker
and asked to know why his political af-
filiation was important.
Baker said he was "just curious"
about what Winkleman had been doing.

Shapiro opposes 'nuclear free' proposal

An open letter to the Academic Com-
munity on the "Nuclear-Free Ann Ar-
bor" ballot proposal.
I have been asked by many concer-
ned citizens and members of the
University community for my opinion
regarding the "Nuclear-Free Zone"
proposal which will be on our local
ballot this November. While the
University has not itself taken a
usition on this matter, the purpose of
this letter is to outline some of my per-
sonal reactions and concerns regarding
this ballot proposal.
My personal assessment is that the
proposal will not achieve any of its im-
portant objectives, calls for a peculiar
and frightening enforcement
procedure, and represents a significant
threat to the vitality of the Ann Arbor
community and, potentially, to the
:cademic vitality of the University.
hus, I am opposed to the Ann Arbor
Nuclear-Free Zone Charter Amendme-
nt to be voted on this November.

Certainly all of us share with the
proponents of this amendment a fear of
the potential holocaust of nuclear war.
Many of us were among the supporters
of a "nuclear freeze" and it is entirely
appropriate and desirable for citizens
to continue to work through the political
process to minimize the chances of a
nuclear confrontation. I believe,
however, that this objective will not be
achieved by this poorly conceived in-
titiative, which, despite its weaknesses,
may succeed in restricting thought,
writing, and acquisition of knowledge of
many kinds.
To my knowledge, all research done
at The University of Michigan would
appear to fall under the "exclusion" in
the proposed amendments, which ad-
dresses "basic research, the primary
purpose of which is not the development
or use of nuclear weapons or delivery
systems."
Yet, the amendment does not define
"basic research," and there is reason
to fear that it could be read narrowly so
as to prevent faculty and student

research on such matters as the control
of nuclear arms proliferation, im-
proved transportation vehicles or
systems for moving weapons safely
across the country, writings on nuclear
weapons and their history, and methods
to avoid nuclear war, none of which
may be considered, by some, as "basic
research." Further, prescribing jail
sentences (90 days) and fines ($500) for
each day of supposed "violation," as
this amendment does, is an intolerable
threat to open inquiry and to the First
Amendment rights of our Constitution.
Especially when the issues described
are so vague and uncertain, its impact
on our community could be quite
chilling.
I have spoken and written several
times in recent years regarding my
concern over proposed restrictions on
freedom of inquiry and openness in the
University environment. It is always a
problem when traditions of the free ex-
change of ideas and the pursuit of,
knowledge are subjected to gover-
nmental decisions regarding what kin-
ds of knowledge are "too dangerous" to

acquire. If genuine and passionately
held feelings are allowed to restrict
areas of inquiry, one topic at a time, lit-
tle will be left of the modern university.
This, of course, will not be the outcome
of this amendment alone, but since the
benefits of the proposal are so small
this potential cost weights heavily on
my mind.
Whether or not the Charter Amen-
dment passes, it will remain true that
any research can lead to knowledge
with both helpful and harmful ap-
plications. However, I am also pain-
fully aware of the dangers both to the
academy and to freedom posed by of-
ficial restrictions regarding which sub-
jects are legitimate areas of inquiry
and which are not. It is always useful to_
recall the major contributions free
inquiry has made to the advancement
of human well-being.
For these principal reasons, I oppose
the proposed Ann Arbor Nuclear-Free
Zone Charter Amendment.
- Harold T. Shapiro

Chomsky stir
(Continued from Page 1)
some controversial stances.
"A BROAD international consensus
has existed for a political settlement in
the Middle East that has included, since
the mid 1970's, the demand for a
Palestinian state," he said. He said this
consensus included Western Europe,
the Soviet Union, most non-aligned
countries, and many Arab countries.
But Israel and the United States have
consistenly blocked Arab peace efforts
with a policy of "not dealing with any
Palestinians on any political issue."
Chomsky listed as evidence separate
Egyptian and Jordanian peace
initiatives in1971 that "were dismissed
with total contempt," and several
similar proposals that were rejected by
former U.S. Secretary of State Henry
Kissinger.
"Kissinger blocked all of Anwar
Sadat's peace offers on the premise
that Egypt wouldn't sever its alliance
with the Soviet Union," he said.
He said that in reality Sadat was

,s controversy
already breaking with the Soviets, and
he ridiculed Kissinger's efforts as "a
disply of ignorance by a man who was
living in a world of incredible fantasy
and disillusions.."
CHOMSKY said the post-Kissinger
era has only produced more of the
same: The United States and Israel
have rejected Arab and Soviet
proposals for a United-Nations spon-
sored General Peace Conference. He
attributes this to American fear of
losing its unique diplomatic role in the
region.
Chomsky accused the American
press of "offering apologies for Israel
atrocities." The various American
rejections of Arab initiatives have
received "virtually no coverage in the
United States," including the
prestigous New York Times and
Washington Post.
Chomsky concluded that the cycle of
"Israeli repression and retaliation will
continue in the future," and that the
prospect of "further wars leading to a
superpower confrontation is great."

Crash kills four CIA
agents in El Salvador

WASHINGTON (AP) - Four
American employees of the CIA on an
arms surveillance mission in El
Salvador were killed early yesterday
when their aircraft crashed in heavy
rain near the capital, San Salvador, the
State Department said.
White House spokesman Larry
Speakes said the mission of the unar-
med aircraft was to "assist the gover-
nment of El Salvador by warning of in-
surgent offensives and identification of
shipments of arms and ammunition by
the government of Nicaragua to the
guerrillas in El Salvador."
SPEAKES said he didn't know the
aircraft's specific mission, but confir-
med that the airplane was "under con-
tract to the U.S. government and the

government of El Salvador."
But one intelligence source said the
plane, equipped with sophisticated
night photography equipment, was
following another aircraft suspected of
carrying arms to leftist Salvadoran
guerrillas. He said such missions had
been under was for about two months.
Speakes said, "The aircraft was
flying during heavy rains with very
limited visibility and crashed into
mountain near San Salvador."
The incident occurred one day after
the Salvadoran army launched a major
offensive against, a rebel stronghold in
northeastern El Salvador. But the in-
telligence source, who spoke on con-
dition he not be identified, said the
flight was unrelated to the offensive.
