But when percentages of Black
faculty were compared, the Uni-
versity's rank dropped to some-
where in the upper-middle of all
schools surveyed. The University's
percentage of Black faculty cur-
rently stands at 3.2 percent, and in
1985 stood at 74 professors.
"Compared to everyone else who
is trying to improve their Af-
firmative Action efforts, we are
certainly doing better than most of
our competitors," Roach said. The

University's Affirmative Action
program was started in 1970, and is
reputed by the regents to be one of
the nation's best.
Nordby emphasized a disturbing
reduction of the number of senior
faculty since 1977, which
accompanies a reduction in min-
ority faculty. The number of
women faculty has remained
constant. Although the rank of
assistant professor has increased
steadily over the past ten years,
Nordby acknowledged that the

University would need to make a
big commitment in order to
increase the ranks of the associate
and full professors.
Although the Affirmative
Action gains were mostly positive,
the report triggered some sharp
debate between the regents.
"The further we go with the
logic of hiring minorities, event-
ually we will cause inequality
among others from the majority,"
said Regent Deanne Baker (R-Ann
Arbor).

'U': Wallace will speak

Ralliers seek to maintain end-use' clause

By STEPHEN GREGORY
The University will not
withdraw an invitation to CBS
news correspondent Mike Wallace
to speak at the May 2 com-
mencement ceremonies, officials
said yesterday.
The United Coalition Against
Racism is protesting the Uni-
versity's choice of Wallace because
of racist remarks he made six years
ago. Members of the coalition have
called Wallace's remarks about
Blacks and Latinos "bigoted" and
unacceptable" comments for a
commencement speaker and are
requesting the University to find
another speaker.
But University President Harold
Shapiro said, "We certainly have no
intention of withdrawing the in-
vitation, and I'm assuming Mr.
Wallace will be here."

role of the social conscience of the
University," said MSA President
Ken Weine. "We must show the
administration that they cannot
walk around students, that they
must listen to us and be assured
that they made the right decision 15
years ago."
Many students who attended the
hemonstration agreed that students
must show support for maintaining
the clause. "The more people that
show support, the more the
administration has to take an active
interest in what we say," said
Debbie Kobak, an RC sophomore.
The demonstrators also sought

to link the issues of racism and
militarism. History graduate student
Barbara Ransby, a leader of the
United Coalition Against Racism,
said that "racist propaganda fuels
pro-war sentiment" and the military
uses "an economic draft" in filling
its services.
"The University can no longer
hide behind the notion that an
academic place is separate from the
rest of society," she added.
Ann-Marie Coleman, director of
the Guild House and city council-
member (D-First Ward), said that
the University should use research

to "find ways to end hunger, racism
and poverty in Ann Arbor, in
Michigan, and around the world."
Members of the newly-formed
Voice of Freedom, a student group
which maintains that the end-use
clause is a form of censorship, also
attended the vigil. The group, with
about 10 members present at the
vigil, held up signs, passed out
fliers, and tried to speak to the
crowd.
LSA sophomore Belinda Pett, a
Voice of Freedom member, ex-
plained that "even people who do
not approve of weapons research do

not have the right to censor those
who wish to pursue it in the
University setting."
Many opponents of the clause
favor "academic freedom," the
researcher's right to research any
topic. The clause, some say, puts
unnecessary restrictions on research.

Keith Molin, director of the
University Communications, also
confirmed that Wallace is still
coming. "The University has not
nor is not considering rescinding its
invitation, and it's our under-
standing that Mr. Wallace does
intend to come," Molin said.
Wallace has not withdrawn from
attending, and he said he will
address the remarks during his
speech.
