Prof. Stefan SzaCol-
lege Management Shool in London presented
evidence yesterday of a correlaion beteen
race and income of players m the Euish hot-
ball League and the National ockey League
Szymanski began his lecure. tled "Market
Tests for Discriminatin: Edence from Eng
lish Soccer and the NHUiL" by decribing the
composition of the Eng-lish Foobal Leae.
The league contains 92 teams diided equaly
among four divisions. The top division is
known as the Premier I.eage, the second-
most prominent division is known as the hirst
Division.The top three ra""cams in any
division move up to the next sion bile the
three lowest ranked teams move down a divi-

The data released from these teams, Szyrnan-
ski sid, shows that the more money a team
speids the higher its performance is.
"Ninety perr.ent of performance can be
explamed by expenditures," he said.
f tene compares a team's performance -
determned by its ranking - and its total
expens es, compared to the average expenses of
all teams, teams spending more generally do
better. Teams that are above the regression line
on the giaph get better performance per dollar.
The beauty of his study, Szymanski said, was
that he does not "need earnings information
e craer" to support his claims.
It can be inf-rred, he said, that teams having
high proportions of black players that do better
than their expenditures would suggest the team
may have discriminatory practices.
But studying discrimination in North Ameri-
carn sports can be different, Szymanski said.

"Ninety percent of performance can be explained by

Professor, Imperial College Management School

"Wage expenditures in North American
sports do not indicate success as much as in
Great Britain," he said.
Szymanski said he hopes to study discrimination
in Italian soccer, where racism towards minority
players runs rampant in stadiums, he said, with
blacks the frequent targets of racial epithets.
The state of tolerance in Italy, he said, was as
low as that of Great Britain in the 1960s and
1970s, which he said has considerably
improved since then.
Szymanski said studies of discrimination in

industries other than sports can be done
although in industries such as the automotive,
"success" is harder to define.
Szymanski's lecture was part of the School of
Kinesiology's Seminar Series. He is a candidate
for the scol's sport finance faculty position.
The next seminar is scheduled for April 9.
Coe Colege Economics Prof. David J. Berri
will present "Are the Sports Media Color-
Blind?" at 2:30 p.m. All presentations are open
to the public and will take place at Bickner
Auditorium in the Kinesiology Building.

University General Counsel Marvin Krislov and
Deputy General Counsel Liz Barry met with the
Senate Assembly yesterday to discuss the affirma-
tive action lawsuits against the University, com-
mending their team of researchers and the student
Krislov told the assembly thatthe University is
still waiting for U.S. District Judge Bernard Fried-
man's decision in the lawsuit against the University
Law School's race conscious admissions policy.
During the trial, Krislov said, the defense used
"valuable research" regarding diversity in higher
education, much of which was compiled by Univer-
sity professors.
He said that out of the four cases currently in
American courts regarding "race permissible poli-
cy" - the Smith case affecting the University of
Washington Law School, the Hopwood case affect-
ing the University of Texas Law School, the case at
the University of Georgia and the case at the Uni-
versity of Michigan - the University's case uses
the research done on educational diversity most
"Ours is the first case to really comprehensively
present all the benefits of diversity," Krislov said. In
December, U.S. District Judge Patrick Duggan ruled
that although the University's current system of
admissions is legal, the "grid" admissions system
used from 1995 to 1998 was unconstitutional.
"We just felt incredibly gratified by the decision,"
Krislov said.
He added that the presentations made by the stu-
dent interveners in both the undergraduate admis-
sions lawsuit and the Law School trial, as opposed
to only hearing from those experts outside of the
body of people the trial was affecting, were espe-

cially meaningful.
"We had the opportunity to actually hear from
students," he said.
Barry said the interveners made important contri-
butions to the trials.
"In the Law School trial, the interveners really
presented the bulk of the trial. It was fascinating"
she said.
Barry said the lawsuits are especially important
because of the educational value afforded by diversity.
"We have to defend our policy based on why we
have it. Why we have it is about education. It really
is education because of the current state of segrega-
tion that exists in society," she said.
Barry said many of the students at the University
have always gone to school, church and even the
store with people who are ethnically and socio-eco-
nomically similar to themselves, and the role of the
University is in part of give a well rounded life
experience to its students.
"One of the historical purposes of the University
has been to create citizens," she said.
Krislov and Barry said they expect that whatever
the outcome of the case against the University Law
School, the case will be appealed along with the
case against the University's undergraduate admis-
sions policy in the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals in
When asked if the cases challenging the University
would go to the Supreme Court, Krislov only said that
"the sense is that these are very significant cases."
He added that a ruling on any of the other three
university affirmative action trials would back up
the lawsuits against the University.
"If the Supreme Court rules before our cases go
up, then we'll have to start over again," Krislov said.
The Senate Assembly also voted three new mem-
bers onto the Senate Advisory Committee on Uni-
versity Affairs.
