The University Athletic Department
will - undergo a "thorough" in-
vestigation by the federal Department
of Education to determine whether it
discriminates against athletes on the
basis of sex, a Department of
Education official said yesterday.
Education department spokeswoman
Joan Glickman said athletic depar-
tment investigations will begin in early
September at Michigan, the University
of Akron, the University of Bridgeport
(Conn.), Cornell University, the
University of Hawaii, the University of
Kansas, and Washington State Univer-
AN INVESTIGATION of North Texas
State University, despite some reports
to the contrary, will not take place,
Glickman said, but has been replaced
by an upcoming investigation at
Oklahoma State, also in early Septem-
No University or government of-
ficials contacted by The Daily could
provide information on specific com-
plaints against any of the schools. That
information will not be released until
the investigations are actually under-
way, the officials said.
Athletic Director Don Canham,
reached at his Lake St. Clair vacation
cottage, "said the upcoming in-
vestigation does not take him by sur-
"I KNEW they were going in-
to ... some of the top schools," he said.
Canham insisted, however, he knew
of no sex discrimination complaints
filed against Michigan with the Depar-
tment of Education.
Glickman, in a telephone interview
from her Washington, D.C. office, said
a total of 124 complaints have been filed
against about 80 universities. "We have
to respond to every single complaint
with a full investigation," she said.
Glickman added that each in-
vestigation must be completed in 90
days or less.
CONTRARY TO some earlier repor-
ts, Glickman explained, no athletic
departments will be "probed" on a
superficial level. Each complaint about
sex discrimination will be followed up
with a complete investigation.
Canham praised that approach: "If
they're going to come in, they might as
well look at it all," he said.
One federal official who is extremely
close to the investigations disclosed to
The Daily a "second group" of univer-
sities where investigations will begin in
late September: Howard University,
the University of Maryland, the
University of Miami, Michigan State
University, Ohio State University, and

Los Angeles, the University of Min-

University of Wisconsin.

assessments," Glickman said of the in-

damage to a comic book store located
above the burning grocery and a
restaurant adjacent to it on the south.
Ann Arbor Fire Chief Robert Murphy
said the fire was probably accidental,
but added that the cause was under
routine investigation. Murphy said the
building was not a total loss and there
appeared to be no structural damage.
Dennis Tice, son of the store owner,
said no one was in the store at the time
the fire broke out.
