WOMEN
Continued from Page 1
exception of the level of Deans and
Associate Deans, the proportion of
women still decreases at each suc-
cessive level of the University's aca-
demic pipeline.
"In light of increasing numbers of
women Ph.D.s we should have seen
corresponding increases of faculty
appointments. ... Unfortunately,
Michigan's performance is relatively
poor even in relation to that of other
research universities. Of nine peer
institutions surveyed, six had a
somewhat larger proportion of
women faculty, two were the same
and only one had a smaller propor-
tion of women faculty."
University President James
Duderstadt acknowledged in a letter
that "many inequities are obvious
and must be addressed."
"We've made progress, but
particularly at the higher ranks,
there's still a distance to go," said
Shirley Clarkson, director of
presidential communications.
"That's the main reason why the
provost instituted his new program
to increase hiring of faculty."
Under the February
implementation of the Special Hiring
and Recruitment Effort - SHARE

program - the Office of Academic
Affairs will fund the difference to
upgrade a junior-level faculty search
to the senior level in order to in-
crease senior faculty hiring.
Stebbins said departments with
problems achieving parity should
follow the psychology department's
avid recruitment of graduate Black
students.
"That's a good model to go by
and the reason they've been very
successful is that they've been very
active in their recruitment," Stebbins
said. "It sounds corny but that's
what you have to do - reach out."
Although Clarkson admitted to
the dearth of women administrators,
she pointed to such high-level
female officials as General Counsel
Elsa Cole and newly-hired Vice
President for Student Affairs
Maureen Hartford.
She added, in the past, the
University could create new posi-
tions for women, but this practice is
not feasible anymore due to financial
and personnel constraints.
"There's been progress. It's just
at the executive administrator range,
there are fewer (women)," she said.
"Partly now we're not in a period of
expansion, and it makes it harder to
address inequity."

"We maintained the quality of
services, made the choice of which
services simply had to be curtailed
and learned how to live within re-
duced revenues," he said. "That's
going to be a problem here in Ann
Arbor and I think my experidnce
gives me an understanding in how
this council can assist in reducing
the cost of services and keeping the
quality within an acceptable range.
"Government is the way you
make it possible to have a civilized
society," Michener said.
"I see the council's role not to
run the day-to-day activities of the
city, but rather to set policies for the
major programs and set goals and
objectives," Michener said. He said
the City Council should keep in
contact with the administrator and
city employees and later conduct an
"operations audit."
However, Fink said he
disagreed.
"I don't think the city should be
run that way," Fink said. "It drives
the city employees crazy."
"I don't think the council people
should be there 50 hours a week,"
said Fink, who said he feels the
council should act as a board of di-
rectors. "That may be the biggest
difference between Republicans
and the Democrats."
Schrodel said Libertarians also

feel the council should take a
hands-off approach to governing.
"Government does not need to
be a full-time job," he said.
But, Michener said, "A council
fails in its responsibility simply by
acting as a board of directors and
appointing a city administrator."
Fink said the City Council needs
to focus more on long-term plans
'Government is the
way you make it
possible to have a
civilized society.'

2nd Ward candidate
and less on partisan bickering over
small issues.
"I would be strongly in favor of
a joint caucus," Fink said. "When
you've got people sitting on one
side of the street and some sitting
on the other side of the street,
literally plotting over issues and the
two go to a meeting and try to sort
things out ... that just isn't a good
atmosphere for resolving
problems."
Schrodel said he has made other
accomodations in case he does not
win the election. He said he will en-
roll at the University of Dayton this
fall.

He said as a senior citizen, and a
person with experience in state
governments and in administration,
he could help "establish long- and

short-term policies which help all
of us."
Michener said he headed a state
Department of Public Institutions in
Nebraska that had a budget approx-
imately the same size as Ann
Arbor's. He added he lead the de-
partment through the recession of
1980.

"It's been a good turnout. Most
people have been really interested,"
Tjoelker said. "One problem we did
have was on one ballot the parties
were not listed next to the people.
Students wanted to know who went
with what and I couldn't tell them."
Many students said they voted by
party - not candidate.
"I'm voting because I'm in favor
of a few issues the Progressive Party
is promoting and I wanted to make
sure they got my support," RC junior
Matthew McDermott said.
"I like to stick with the
Conservative Coalition because I
trust someone more conservative be-
cause they can get done what they
say they can get done," said LSA
senior Paul Savage.
"I voted because it is our civic

duty," said LSA senior Craig
Robison. "I support the Conservative
Coalition because it is the only rep-
utable party on the ballot."
Other students said they voted for
the Progressive Party because they
were concerned about the fight that
erupted at last week's assembly
meeting when LSA Rep. Bill Lowry
called a woman speaking during
MSA constituents time "a bitch."
"I voted namely because of the
incident that took place at the MSA
meeting last week," School of
Education first-year doctoral student
Yvette Jenkins said. "I think we
need a change in leadership. I
haven't been paying attention to the
assembly but obviously we have a
problem when one of the leaders
refers to a woman as 'a bitch."'
Rackham graduate student
Courtney Atlas also said she voted
because of discontent with the cur-
rent assembly.

"If there was an incident of call-
ing someone a derogatory remark
than obviously they're not fit to be
leaders," Atlas said. "Hopefully, if
nothing else, there will be a defeat of
the people in power. I'm looking to
get rid of the current
administration."
Other students said they voted
simply because they had the extra
time.
"I had 15 minutes to kill before
classes. I know practically zero
about the candidates. I'm voting to
kill 15 minutes before class," said
Engineering junior Dave Woldring.
Some students refused to vote
because they said it did not make a
difference.
"I've been here five years and
MSA hasn't done anything while
I've been here," said first-year law
student Dominic Cianciolo.
MSA polling sites will be open
throughout the day today.

Fourth Ward Democratic
candidate Peter Nicolas, a University
graduate student, is the only
Democrat candidate to receive more
contributions than a Republican
opponent - $7,315 compared to

$3,725 received by his opponent
Franz Mogdis.
While Republican 5th Ward
candidate and LSA senior Jeff Muir
has taken in less money than
Nicolas, he has received more than
twice the amount of his opponent,
incumbent Councilmember Thais
Peterson (D-5th Ward).
Muir claims to have received
$5,965 to Peterson's $2,847. Muir
has spent more than four times the
amount of Peterson's expenses on
his campaign - $5,692 compared to
Peterson's $1,301 in expenses.

ELECTION
Continued from page 1
6th District.
Carr first was elected to Congress
in 1974, lost in 1980, then won back
his seat in 1982.
While Carr talked about eco-
nomics being the top issue in this
year's elections, Wolpe talked about
his plan to stay involved in public
policy.
"I do not know at this point ex-
actly what I will be doing next year,
but I am excited about the opportu-
nity I will now have to step back a
bit, to do some reflection on how we

can get beyond the ugliness and cyn-
icism of this election so that we can
begin the task of rebuilding this state
and nation of ours," he said.
"I have no intention of leaving
public life or abandoning the strug-
gles in which I have been engaged
these past two decades."
Wolpe became the second mem-
ber of Michigan's 18-member U.S.
House delegation to retire because of
reapportionment.
Congressional district lines are
redrawn every 10 years after the
census to reflect population shifts.
Michigan will lose two of its 18
seats this year.
