Auto aid plan unveiled


specialto The Daily
DETROIT - President Carter, ac-
companied by an entourage of domestic
policy advisers, stormed into the hear-
tland of the financially-strapped auto
industry yesterday to unveil a com-
prehensive plan aimed at reviving the
ailing corporations.
After holding an hour-long session
with the chief executives of the nation's
automakers and the United Auto
Workers union, Carter said he was
"deeply concerned" about the high
unemployment rate in the industry, ad-
ding he hoped to move a's rapidly as
possible to correct the problem.
"We have literally been working day
and night to prepare this package of
proposals," he said.
The president's announcement came
on the heels of news that Toyota and
Nissan,- Japan's top automakers, have
replaced Ford Motor Co. and Chrysler
Corp. as the number two and three
companies in the field.
The.Carter program includes:
" A call for an expedient in-
vestigation by the International Trade
Commission to determine whether the
auto industry has been injured by
foreign competition and, if injury is
found, a recommendation of ap-
propriate remedies;
o Regulatory changes concerning
emissions standards and worker ex-
posure to lead and arsenic that could
save the industry upwards of $500

PRESIDENT CARTER EXPLAINS to reporters yesterday the details of his comprehensive plan to revive the nation's
ailing auto industry. To the president's left is UAW Chairman Douglas Fraser; to his right, General Motors Chairman
Thomas Murphy.

DETROIT-Testimony in Jonathan Marwil's suit Univi
against the University continued for the second day tract
' yesterday as an attorney for the University stated in revie
no uncertain terms what many faculty members facul

grievance board has no real clout. IN
Robert Vercruysse, in an objection to part of Mar- that I
S wil's testimony, said the Senate Advisory Review Engi
h its Committee-the facully's own griev-
ance body-"is at most an advisory
committee. It makes .no binding
decisions. At -best it is a group of M a ,i vs.
faculty members' opinions."e
MARWIL, A 40-year-old former

the College of Engineering, is suing tenure reviews

rcruysse's objection came as Marwil was ex-
ing the steps he took in 1978 to appeal within the
ersity his department's decision to allow his con-

w-a privilege Marwil maintains. a sixth-year
ty member is entitled to under several depar-
tal and College policies.
NOVEMBER, 1978 SARC decided unanimously
Marwil deserved a tenure review, although then-
neering Dean David Ragone rejected the ad-
visory decision.
Vercruysse argued yesterday that
testimony about SARC's-decision
U / was irrelevant because the decision
was merely advisory in nature.
In apparent contradiction to the un-
derstandings of most faculty mem-
bers, Vercruysse further stated that
SARC is not part of the University's
designated appeal process. Marwil
"should have appealed (Ragone's)
ion to (then) Vice-President (for Academic
rs) Harold Shapiro," Vercruysse said.
TER YESTERDAY'S testimony, Vercruysse
ied that he did not believe SARC procedures
relevant to the proceedings because the
ion before the court is whether Marwil's con-
ional rights were violated. "SARC has no power
