By FRANCIE ALLEN
The Board of Trustees at Central Michigan University
has appointed Arthur Ellis as the university president.
The board, however, made that appointment without
consulting the screening committee that had been set up
to nominate candidates for the position.
ALTHOUGH Ellis, who was acting president since July,
was not one of the screening committee's five nominees,
the board chose him because members were impressed
with his performance as interim president.
Ellis has been at CMU since 1970, when he became vice
president for public affairs. Before that, he was director
of budgets and government relations at Eastern Michigan
University for two years.
"Art appears to be getting along with both the board and
the faculty, and I think that's a nice change," said
Pamela Weaver, chairperson of the university's
academic senate. She added that previous university
president Harold Abel often did not get along well with
WHEN ABEL resigned from the presidency last July,
he received $315,000 severence pay package. Controversy
arose when students and state lawmakers disputed the
package. The state legislature threatened to cut state fun-
ding for the university as a result, but never carried out
Weaver credits Ellis with improving the university's
relations with the legislature. She said he recently ob-
tained $40 million from the state to fund an industrial
education technology building and a science building ad-
Maria Reiser, a student member of the screening com-
mittee, said although the board ignored their
nominations, the committee has not yet planned any ac-
tion against the board.
REISER said the committee submitted a list of five
nominees to the board on Dec. 14. At that time, she said,
board chairman Raymond La Bounty said the board
would evaluate the nominees' qualifications.
Reiser said that she and other committee members
thought the board would contact them around the first of
this month to discuss the candidates. The board, however,
held a closed meeting on Jan. 30 and announced its
decision to the committee Tuesday.
The decision "was a surprise to us," Reiser said.
ELLIS "has done a fine job for us in the past seven mon-
ths," Reiser said. "However, I think the problem is that
the Board of Trustees and the faculty have different
opinions on what the criteria should be for a president."
Reiser said she was worried that the manner in which
Ellis was chosen would discourage future candidates, thus
affecting the quality of the university. She said that future
candidates may think the Board strongly favors can-
didates from within the university.
Russ Herron, an assistant to Ellis, said he doesn't think
Ellis will be blamed for the controversy. "It's more of a
problem between the screening committee and the Board
of Trustees," he said. He added that Ellis would try to
mend the rift between the board and the committee.
Ellis could not be reached for comment.

ALTHOUGH satisfied with the
team's progress so far, members
predict they will do better in the
future. For the second consecutive
year, they will sponsor a high school
debate workshop on campus this
summer. Coaches from Harvard and
the University of Kentucky will assist
with the workshop, Speta said, adding
that the workshop is part of an effort
to recruit outstanding debaters for
their own team. This spring the team
may sponsor a campus tournament to
give University students a taste of the
Despite their efforts, the debaters
insist that they need more money for
coaches if the quality of the team is to
improve. The team, however, has no
definite fundraising plans yet.
THE SECRET to the team's success
so far lies in its strong background.
Loshbough qualified for national
debate tournaments three times in
high school, while Green won a high
school tournament sponsored by Har-
vard University. Speta was a top
speaker at several high school tour-
Although current team members
have solid backgrounds, Speta and
Mancuso say hard work, rather than
experience, is more crucial for suc-
cess on the team. During the week
before a tournament, each member
devotes over 20 hours to research and
practice. They polish their speaking
style, practice reading evidence
quickly and clearly, and work out
arguments so that they are not con-
Debate involves a substantial
amount of work, but participants say
it is worth the effort. Laumann says.
"the thrill of winning an argument" is
important to him because he is "a
very argumentative person."
"(Debate) lets people who aren't in-
terested in physical sports to do
something challenging - to compete
intellectually," Mancuso said.
