John D'Arms, dean of the Rack-
ham Graduate School, has been
tomoted to Vice Provost for Aca-
dpmic Affairs. The University's
Board of Regents approved the pro-
niotion yesterday at their monthly
The five year appointment will
allow D'Arms, a classical studies
and history professor, to work more
closely with the central administra-
tion, said Charles Vest, University
vice provost and vice president for
cademic affairs. D'Arms will retain
his title of graduate school dean.
"What (the title) really does is

tenure, and simply reinforces that I
play a role in the central administra-
tion," D'Arms said.
D'Arms additional duties will in-
clude evaluating promotion and
tenure candidates and serving as a li-
aison between the University and
foundations which give money to
the University.
The vice provost position is a
new position which President James
Duderstadt and Vest developed as part
of a plan to restructure the adminis-
tration. Duderstadt announced the
changes, which created several new

U1111 V7+, 1C.1 . V {.l tJ\wl.

D'Arms has been a member o'
the University's faculty since 1965.
He received bachelor of arts degrees
from Princeton and Oxford universi-
ties and received his Ph.D. from
Harvard University.
In other business, the regents
voted 2-0 with six abstentions

quire President James Duderstadt to
further investigate the last Michigan
Student Assembly elections.
Baker said he was upset that Gen-
eral Counsel Elsa Cole, who Duder-
stadt delegated the authority to re-
view the elections, did not speak to
Jeff Johnson, the Conservative

was unavaiia~ f or comment.
The elections were investigated
following concerns raised by Baker
at the February Board of Regents
meeting about the validity of the
election's results.
But Duderstadt expressed confi-
dence that the investigation had been
complete. He said Cole had thor-
oughly examined the elections to see

Regents irke by president's

Daily Administration Reporter lion. The development office was moving the office had taken place for

ana i there were any inconsistencies
in those rules.
Regent Thomas Roach (D-Saline)
supported Duderstadt's explanation
and disapproved of bringing the issue
up again when the Assembly is
preparing for its winter elections.
"Let's let the students mind their
own government," Roach said.
" "
tration out of the administration
building, I think that's important to
know," he said. "There's not a
proper flow of information coming
through (from the administration)."
Duderstadt said the off-campus
office was necessary in order to im-
prove the fundraising capabilities of
the administration.

yesterday The Daily reported that the Black Student Union and the
Palestinian Solidarity Committee sponsored a videotape of a speech by
teve Cokely. Neither group sponsored the event.
In a February 22, 1990 news article, The Daily misquoted Deane Baker as
1s6ying he forged a letter from U.S. Representative Carl Pursell. The Daily
also misquoted Baker as saying he used Pursell's letterhead and signature.
What's happening in Ann Arbor today

Several of the University's re-
gents yesterday criticized University
President James Duderstadt for leas-
ing an office on liberty street for the
office of the Vice President for De-
velopment without informing them
of the decision.
The office, at 301 Liberty Street,
was leased for five years to the Uni-
versity at a total cost of $2.5 mil-

previously housed in the Fleming
Administration building along with
the University's other executive of-
"An obligation of $2.5 million...
should come before the regents," said
Regent Deane Baker (R-Ann Arbor).
"I shouldn't have to learn it from
somebody walking across the street."
Duderstadt said discussions about

approximately one year and he was
unaware leases were to be brought to
the regents for approval.
Regent Neal Nielsen (R-
Brighton) said while he had heard re-
ports on the need for a new devel-
opment office, he had never heard
about moving the office off-campus.

Attempts by Czechoslovakian
students to make changes in the
government brought the the downfall
of the Communist Party last year,
said Peter Mathern, a medical student
from Prague, yesterday at Lane Hall.
Mathern said his efforts to change
the government began in January of
1989 when he and a friend partici-
pated in the demonstrations on
Prague city square.
In the following months, Math-

ern became the spokesperson for the
Medical School Strike Committee
and a member of the All City Stu-
dent Coordinating Committee, the
two groups which organized the gen-
eral strike on November 17,1989.
"The students and the civic forum
were the main forces of the whole
revolution," Mathern said. "They
triggered the revolution and were the
creators and the organizers of all the
Although the strike was success-

ful in showing opposition to the
communist government, Mathern
said it was not known outside of
Prague because of the Czechoslo-
vakian government's complete con-
trol over the media.
The general strike, which at-
tracted an estimated one million
people, resulted in violence toward
the protestors from the Czechoslo-
vakian government forces.
Mathern said the government
feared a second general strike and

"this ultimately scared the Commu-
nist party away." The old govern-
ment was then dissolved and the cur-
rent government was formed.
Mathern said student activism
hasn't stopped since the downfall of
the Communist government.
"Students are trying to establish a
so- called student parliament," he
said. The parliament would provide a
way to express student opinion to
the government.
Mathern's speech was sponsored
by The United States Student Asso-
ciation and The Center for Russian
and East European Studies.
The cover photo of today's Weekend
Magazine was taken by Daily photo-
grapher Kenneth Smoller. This in-
formation was inadvertently omitted
from the magazine.

Professors say Michigan Mandate
focuses on numbers, not ideas

By Bob DeMayer
The Michigan Mandate focuses
solely on numbers rather than deal-
ing with ideas, said University Pro-
fessors Andrew Achenbaum and Fred
Bookstein yesterday to about 50
people in the Rackham East Confer-
ence Room.
"The Mandate just assumes,
rather than explores, knowledge.
Why not mention wisdom? "
Achenbaum asked. "Values and
knowledge are rarely even mentioned
in the Mandate."
The Michigan Mandate, imple-
mented by the administration two
years ago, is University President
James Duderstadt's plan for diver-
sity. "I am surprised that there's
been such few revisions in the Man-
date after two whole years," Achen-
baum said.
Achenbaum also said history and
geography are important in learning
other cultures.

"I was horrified in learning that
the Department of Geography was
closed," Bookstein said. "It should
have been restored to its intellectual
mode. We definitely need it back if
we are to take the matter of diversity
seriously in order to study other cul-
Bookstein said that as far as
ethnic studies is concerned, the Man-
date is bound to fail. "The way it
stands now, the Mandate will only
drive the two cultures further apart
rather than bridge them." Bookstein
said the Mandate lacks scrutiny of its

subject matter and it fails to empha-
size how the University can reach
"It is a Noah's Ark of recog-
nized subgroups. The Mandate is
group-oriented rather than knowl-
edge-oriented," Bookstein added. "It
should deal with intellectual pur-
poses, not demographic ones."
Achenbaum said University
President James Duderstadt should
not be the chief and sole originator
of the Mandate. "However, he should
attend forums like this to give him
