outside their dorm due to the Ann
Arbor City Council's defeat of a
proposal which would have allowed
the restaurant Red Hot Lovers to
sell hotdogs from a converted van
parked in front of residence halls.
The restaurant has been mobile
since March, selling lunch at the
Mary Markley residence hall on
Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and

Affairs, headed by Biology Prof.

Rackham, provides information to

y In response to the need for
improved financial aid, the
University has created the Michigan
Minority Merit Fellowship, which
awards an annual stipend of $7,000
in addition to full tuition for 50
minority students.
IN ADDITION, the Uni -
versity has provided funds for
minority recruitment. But Jones
said money is not the only issue.
"The problem (at the University)
is not dollars, it's being denied
opportunities," said Jones.
Jones' survey of minority
graduate students showed that their
two chief concerns were financial
support and isolation, both
academic and social.
"WE CAN do internal things
in Rackham to deal with the first
(problem), but as far as isolation is
concerned we're much more
limited," he said.
"There has to be a continuing
effort to keep in the consciousness
of our faculty and administrators the
fact that these (minority) students
are in many ways the same as any
graduate student and ought to have
the same access to opportunities
and be as much a part of the
academic fabric as other students."
Faculty involvement is esp -
ecially needed in making students
feel comfortable in graduate school.
"THE PROBLEM a number
of minority graduate students have
is not all of their professors see
them as part of the department...
and seem to forget them. But these
students need a mentor to work
with," said Gordon.
Some students are entering new
environments in graduate school,
having come from backgrounds in
which they did not consider earning
doctoral degrees until late in their
education, Gordon said. Applying

and attending graduate school can be
"threatening and confusing," for
such students, he said.
"Minority graduate students may
require some special treatment, but
special doesn't mean the same as
preferential. We must realize the
problems these students will bring .
.will be unique," Jones said.
CURRENTLY, enrolled stu -
dents are also helping in re -
cruitment and retention of new
minority students.
i "A lot of the thrust to make
things equitable is coming from
students themselves rather than
rvfaculty or administrators," said

strong opposition from area
restaurant owners, who feared street
vendors would deter customers from
sit-down meals. They were also
concerned that it would increase
litter and parking problems and
decrease business in Tally Hall mall
on E. Liberty.
Although the ordinance's defeat
brought no changes to city codes, it
has apparently spurred new
awareness of the current code.
Employees of Red Hot Lovers say
that since the matter went before
city council, they have received
several citations and tickets from
the police for selling food while
parked on streets.
Assistant City Attorney Mel
Laracey said the van could not be
ticketed while on private property.
"They can park anywhere on
University property. On the city

THE DEFEATED ordinance
would have amended the city code
to allow motor vehicles to sell food
under the following conditions: that
the vendor obtain a permit from
city council, obey parking time
limits, and park at least 100 feet
from other businesses. The last
clause was added to limit a mobile
vendor's competition with area
"Right now the principle rule for
selling on streets is basically for
pushcarts," said Allen Canter,
owner of Red Hot lovers.
Canter said he had hoped the
council would approve the
ordinance because the idea of a
restaurant on wheels was consistent
with the free-enterprise atmosphere
of Ann Arbor.

the presence of minority faculty

students to further their own
But putting more minority
students in graduate schools today
may not guarantee an increased
number of minority faculty
JONES SAID the way to
ensure that enough minority faculty
will be available in the future is
"by intensifying efforts now, and
not just basing it on the notion
(of) putting students into the
(educational) pipeline."
"One of the ways in which this
University and others ought to
augment their Affirmative Action
programs is by putting the same
amount of effort into recruiting
minority faculty as we're beginning
to put into for minority students,"
Jones said.
Recruitment of minority faculty,
however, is not a centralized or
structured procedure either. Vir -
ginia Nordby, director of Aff -
irmative Action at the University,
said, "It's school by school. Deans
in different departments determine
how they choose faculty."
"Affirmative Action works with
deans; we provide them with advice
and information about (potential)
minority faculty," she said.
Nordby said goals for recruiting
minority faculty vary in different
schools, and are based on the the

number of students completing
doctoral programs.
Sudarkasa said, "We would have
to be agressive. We could easily say
there's not enough [minority
faculty] to 'go around,' but we have
to be determined to attract those
faculty of the caliber that we want
at the University, even if it means
some other schools 'will not get
their share."'"
"Every bright minority faculty
member should be looked upon as a
treasure, a gem. Every possible
effort should be made to polish him
or her, and every effort made to
keep them."
