Duderstadt said the AAUP statistics
maybe skewed because all universities
do not have the same areas of study. He
: said it would be more accurate to com-
pare salaries within the individual dis-
ciplines instead of averages.
"Our most accurate data suggest that
we rank first at the assistant, associate
and full professor level among the pub-
lic universities; roughly in the top five
_ among all universities at the assistant
. and associate professor level, and in the
top 10 among all universities for full
professors," he said.
University professors earn more than
R professors at any other institution in the
state. At Eastern Michigan University,
the top faculty earned $59,000, while at
Michigan State University, they earned
Machen said it is not accurate to
compare the University to other state
"Our faculty are not compared to Cen-
tral Michigan (University),"he said. "They
are compared to Harvard, Yale, MIT."
Although Duderstadt claims the Uni-
versity ranks eighth among private
schools, he said its faculty members are
still "subject to occasional raids."
"We have been remarkably competi-
tive during the past decade," said
Duderstadt, who has served as Univer-
sity president for the past eight years.
"We have lost some outstanding people
to very attractive offers from peers, but
we generally have won more recruiting
battles than we have lost."
Machen said LSA currently has 18
faculty members contemplating higher
salary offers from other institutions.
"Ithink it is areality. Everyyearwe have
a large number of faculty at the U-M who
receive salary offers from these schools,"
Machen said. "We lose good faculty in
certain cases when this happens."
Sometimes the University provides
counter-offers, said Machen, who came
from the University of North Carolina-
Chapel Hill. These incentives often
come in the form of increased research
Dunn said the salary discrepancy
between public and private institutions
is due to the various sources of funding.
While public universities must rely on
strict allocations of state funding, pri-
vate schools have more leeway.
"Let's face it, we area public univer-
sity. That means the finances come out
of money from Lansing and tuition,"
Dunn said. "This is not true for the
private universities. They can co-mingle
accounts if they want to."
Dunn said the University - which
receives more research grants than any
public or private institution -provides
benefits in other areas. He cited the
current health and retirement benefit
packages as variables that should be
weighed in the competition.
Dunn also said many University pro-
fessors "come up through the ranks" to
full professor status. The University
generally does not lose members of that
group to schools like Harvard, he said.
"It is not to say they wouldn't go to
Harvard," Dunn said. "But the majority
won'tget an offer from Harvard or Yale."
Two GOP reps. to leave House
WASHINGTON - Rep. James "Jimmy"Quillen (R-Tenn.)
said yesterday he would not run for re-election this fall, ending
a 34-year House career.
"I'll be 81 at the end of this term and my wife needs me," said
Quillen, who is tied with Rep. Joseph McDade (R-Pa.) as the
most senior House Republican. Quillen's wife, Cecile, has
been ill for several years.
In addition, Rep. Bill Zeliff (R-N.H.) said earlier this week
he would not seek a fourth House term in order to run for
governor this fall. Last week, two-term Republican New
Hampshire Gov. Steve Merrill unexpectedly announced that Quillen
he was leaving politics to spend more time with his family.
The two retirements bring to 45 the number of lawmakers who are not trying tc
return to the House this year, as 27 Democrats and 18 Republicans have said they
will not seek re-election. Ten of those lawmakers are running for the Senate while
two, Texas Democratic Reps. John Bryant and Jim Chapman, were defeated it
their bids for their party's Senate nomination.
In addition, Rep. Greg Laughlin (R-Texas), a former Democrat, lost a primar'
race Tuesday, becoming the first incumbent to be defeated for re-election thisy ,

Brown's American life'
WASHINGTON (AP)-Ron Brown
was laid to rest yesterday after Presi-
dent Clinton celebrated his "truly
American life" in a funeral that re-
flected the commerce secretary's up-
beat style. "He would have loved this
deal today," the president said.
The funeral produced an outpouring
of respect unusual even in pomp-loving
Washington. High-ranking bureaucrats
and government clerks shared pews in
the stately National Cathedral,crowded
to capacity. Thousands filed by his cof-
fin overnight in the Commerce Depart-
"Ron Brown's incredible life force
brought us all joy in the morning," the
president said. "No dark night could
ever defeat him.... This man loved life
and all the things in it."
Brown, the first black commerce sec-
retary, was killed along with 34 others
a week ago in a plane crash while on a
trade mission to Croatia. His son,
Michael, began by thanking the
Croatians who climbed the hillside to
bring down the bodies.
The son smiled during his tribute
to a father so close that they still
kissed on the lips until last week. He
brought on laughter when he told of
hearing him described as smooth as
a swan, and graceful under pres-
"And then I said, 'Wait a minute,
these people have never played golf
with him before,"' Michael said. "He
has problems with about 2 1/2-foot putts,
and grace under pressure I would not

FDA: Youth should
WASHINGTON - The govern-
ment moved yesterday to curb sales of
an herb offering Generation Xers a
"natural high," telling consumers not to
buy such dietary supplements as Herbal
Ecstacy that contain the stimulant ephe-
The supplements are advertised to
young people - sometimes as a "natu-
ral" alternative to illegal drugs-prom-
ising euphoria, heightened sexual
awareness and enhanced athletic per-
formance. They're found everywhere
and in various forms - from tablets in
health-food stores to special fruit drinks
sold on California and Florida beaches.
The supplements are "aimed directly
toward youth for the express purpose of
catching a buzz," said FDA spokesper-
son Arthur Whitmore.
The FDA has learned of 15 people who
died after taking ephedrine-containing
supplements and has received almost 400
other reports of side effects, from heart
attacks and seizures to psychosis.
So the agency warned consumers not
to buy or use the supplements, and is

Arafat lashes out at
RAMALLAH, West Bank - Never
known to have a great stomach for
democracy, Palestinian leader Yasser
Arafat looked downright bilious at the
Palestinian Legislative Council meet-
ing yesterday as he lashed out at mem-
bers who dared to challenge him pub-
Arafat accused four of the elected
legislators of belonging to the militant
Islamic group Hamas and participating
in a secret plan to destroy his govern-
ment. He threatened to withdraw their
congressional immunity, and when an-
other legislator came to the defense of
his four colleagues, Arafat threatened
"Our immunity was not lifted and
will not be lifted," said Imad Falougi,
one ofthe four Council members whom
Arafat accused. "There is no legal basis
for it. I do not want to read too much
into what the president said, but this is
a dangerous precedent."
Arafat has pressures of his own, in-
cluding concern about the future of his

evidence in an effort to take regulator
action against manufacturers.
Hokey Pokey creator
dies at 83 years old
While every school child in America
may know the Hokey Pokey, what 9
might not know is who wrote the song
Larry LaPrise, aka The Hokey Pokey
Man, died last week at age 83 in Boise
Idaho, aftera career that brought him nc
fame, modest fortune, and a job witi
the Postal Service.
For many baby boomers and thei
children, the Hokey Pokey is simply
part of the national legacy, right up
there with Mother Goose and Twister
"I just assumed it had been around
forever," said a shocked Leyah Strt@
of New York. Even before LaPrise's
death, Strauss had been planning tostage
a mass Hokey Pokey-in at some Nev
York locale like Grand Central station.
LaPrise, a Detroit native whose ful
name was Roland Lawrence LaPrise
concocted the song along with two fel
low musicians in the late 1940s for
nightclub in Idaho. The group, the Ran
Trio, recorded the song in 1949.
