PRIDE PROM i

'U' hospital director resigns

40 years ago (April 12,1974)
University Hospital Direc-
tor Edward Connors resigned
following an audit of his travel
expenses, which revealed misuse
of expense account funds.
The funds were considered
misused because Connors had
allegedly charged the expenses
twice - once to the University
and again to outside organiza-
tions.
A. B. Hicks, director of Univer-
sity Audits, refused to comment
on the case beyond telling The
Michigan Daily that he'd rath-
er not explain the University's
auditing policy at that time.
In a written statement, Con-
nors said his actions represented

a serious mistake in judgment,
and that he planned to fully repay
the University once the exact
total of misused funds was deter-
mined.
30years ago (April 10, 1984)
A series of arson incidents in
South Quad continued, marking
the fifth fire in less than a month.
Resident Adviser Eve Skirboll
told her residents at a special
house meeting that they need to
start moving faster in response,
even if they think it isn't serious.
"I'm one of the last ones out
of this building and I don't want
to burn," Skirboll said. "So when
that fire alarm sounds I want you
moving."

10years ago (April 8,2004)
A large number of graduate
student instructors cancelled
their classes in solidarity with
protesting members of the Lec-
turers' Employees Organization.
LEO's protest was focused on
certain demands they wanted the
University to meet during their
ongoing contract negotiations,
such as a revision of their health
benefits package and measures to
increase job security.
GSI Leanne Powner, who can-
celled her office hours, said she
supported the strike because the
issues LEO members were fac-
ing could affect her in the near
future.
