The Senate Assembly, the faculty
governance body, elected four new faculty
members to its executive committee, the
Senate Advisory Committee on University
Affairs, yesterday.
Prof. Charles Olson will serve a one-year
term replacing a member on sabbatical, and
Professors Tom Lenaghan, Edward Chudacoff,
and William Dobbins will serve three years on
The four professors were chosen from eight
faculty and staff nominees SACUA picked last
month. Members are elected on a staggered
basis to fill the nine executive positions.
Although three of the nominees were
women, none were elected. Beth Reed,
associate professor of social work and
women's studies, said this may make a
difference for issues such as affirmative action.
"It's symbolically important that women
be involved in higher levels of education,"
Reed said. Next year Reed will be the only
female member of SACUA.
Olson, a natural resources professor, is

replacing Lorraine Nadelman for one year
while she is on sabbatical. When Nadelman
returns she will be the second woman in
Olsen is a member of the Research Policies
Committee and the Advisory Committee on
State and University Relations. He said he
enjoyed working on these committees but is
unsure if he will change committees once he
begins his SACUA term.
Lenaghan is an English professor who
served on the Senate Assembly from 1966-
1968. He said the two most important issues
SACUA should review are racism and the
faculty merit review system.
Music Prof. Chudacoff said he hopes
SACUA "can act as a funnel for faculty ideas
and concerns on campus." He is a member of
the Academic Affairs Advisory Committee and
the University Affirmative Action Com-
Dobbins, who is a professor of internal
medicine, said faculty governance is essential
to maintain a quality atmosphere at the

The world's largest particle
accelerator could displace 100 to
200 homes of Michigan residents if
it is built in the state, according to
Lawrence Jones, University physics
department chairperson.
Gov. James Blanchard announced
Friday that Michigan would enter
the race for the $4.4 billion atom-
smashing "super collider," which
will create 2,500 permanent jobs
and attract over 500 visiting
scientists to its host state, while
creating no pollution, according to
U.S. Department of Energy Press
Officer Jeff Sherwood.
The collider, which will smash
beams of protons into each other
with a collision energy of 40
trillion electron volts, will have a
$270 million annual budget,
Sherwood said. The project will be
awarded to a state in January 1989.
Jones said the collider will not
be dangerous to people living
nearby, and that the work would be
done too far underground to cause
any damage.
Michigan's proposed site, an
8000-acre area in Monroe and
Lenawee Counties, about 30 miles
south of Ann Arbor, "would miss

all the city limits," Jones said,
adding that the planned site is still
very tentative.
J. David Bagnall, president of
the Monroe County Chamber of
Commerce, said while he is
sensitive to those that may be
displaced, he feels the economic
benefits far outweigh any other
Bagnall said the collider, which
will shoot atomic particles around a
20-foot deep, 52-mile long under -
ground ring, would "really make
this place a tourist attraction," and
would be beneficial to the county.
University Physics Prof.
Martinus Veltman said the Univer -
sity would benefit from the collider,
because prominent scientists from
all over the world would come to
Michigan to work at the site, and
that students would have the chance
as well.
Almost every state has expressed
an interest in obtaining the
accelerator, Sherwood said, includ -
ing Illinois, which hosts the Fermi
National Acceleration Laboratory,
currently the largest particle
acceleration plant in the country.
The new collider would smash
particles with 20 times the

collision energy possible at Fermi.
University Prof. Jones, who first
encouraged Blanchard to join the
competition for the collider, said
the state has a 10 percent chance of
obtaining the collider. He said the
Department of Energy, sponsor of
the project, will formally request
proposals from states this April, to.

panel of scientists named by the
national academies of sciences and
engineering will study the
submitted sites and recommend the
top five sites to the DoE. The
decision will be made by the end of
1988, he said.
University Vice president for
Academic Affairs and Provost
James Duderstadt, however,
believes Michigan will be in the
DoE's top ten, but not the top five.

political influence to obtain the
