Mackey's Second pay
raise rks MSU
faculty and students
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
EAST LANSING (UPI)-The latest
pay raise for Michigan State University
President Cecil Mackey may make him
the highest paid public college
president in the Big Ten-and some
faculty groups aren't too happy about
The MSU Board of Trustees voted
last week to raise Mackey's salary to
$88,250 effective Oct. 1. The 8.5 percent
hike came on top of a 9 percent "catch
up" increase approved by the trustees
THE PAY BOOST has angered some
MSU faculty members, who were told
in February that Michigan's largest
university was in a severe financial
crisis and who are facing the prospect
,of possible layoffs.
Collette Moser, president of the
American Association of University
Professors at MSU, said the raise was
"absurd," noting students will facea 11
percent tuition increase this fall. u
"THE ACTION of the board of
trustees is particularly inappropriate
and illogical while the faculty and staff
are being'held hostage by a financial
crisis declared by the board in
February 1981," she said.
"MSU administration salaries are
among the highest in the Big Ten, while
salaries for full professors at MSU are
the very lowest."
A survey published in a student
newspaper indicates Mackey will have
the highest salary among the Big Ten's
nine public schools. -
THE SECOND highest goes to Iowa's
Willard Boyd who earns 82,500 an-
University of Michigan President
Harold Shapiro earns $75,000 per year,
sixth highest, while Ohio State Univer-
sity ranks at the bottom.
Some schools, however, including the
University of Michigan, have not yet set
1981-82 salaries for their presidents.
Northwestern University, the only
private college in the conference, will
not release its administrative salaries.
MSU trustees said Mackey's June
raise was justified since he had
foregone an increase last fall. The
second hike, they said, is only logical.
Bani-Sadr flees to
PARIS (AP) - Former President
Abolhassan Bani-Sadr shaved off his
highly recognizable moustache and
escaped Iran in a night flight early
yesterday to join the exile opposition to
the Islamic regime of Ayatollah
The Iranian government said Bani-
Sadr - who hid "in the heart of
Tehran" for 43 days - probably wore a
dress when he "hijacked" a jet and flew
to France to cast his lot with "the
united front of the counter-revolution."
BANI-SADR, impeached in June and
a casualty of the Iranian revolution he
tried to guide, was accompanied by,
Iran's top leftist in his flight aboard a
jetliner which Iran said was flown by
the late Shah Mohammad Reza
Pahlavi's personal pilot.
Iran demandea Bani-Sadr's ex-
tradition, but France granted him
asylum and warned him not to make
political statements. On arrival in
France, Bani-Sadr said the election of
President Mohammad Ali Rajai was a
sham and predicted the people of Iran
would soon return Iran to "the path of
HIS WORDS brought a quick warning
from French officials and Bani-Sadr
canceled a scheduled afternoon news
The jet carrying Bani-Sadr, Massoud
Radjavi, leader of the Marxist guerrilla
Mujahedeen Khalq, and Col. Behzad
Moesi, who Tehran Radio said was the
personal pilot to the late shah, landed at
the French military air base at Evreux,
60 miles west of Paris, about 4:30 a.m.
Bani-Sadr was in shirtsleeves and his
moustache was gone.
They joined a group of other Iranian
exiles in France, the country in which
Khomeini and Bani-Sadr in 1978-79
gathered another disparate band of
Iranians to plan the downfall of the

One dead in England riots
during wedding celebrations
LIVERPOOL, England-England's urban rioting claimed its first life
yesterday, but even in battle-scarred Liverpool five hours of overnight
violence failed to dampen royal wedding celebrations.
"Most people here are having street parties, not street riots," a police
Police quelled rioting by youths in the Toxteth area, the third straight
night of disorder, then pulled back to station houses to join the rest of the
nation in watching television to see Prince Charles marry Lady Diana Spen-
During the rioting, a young man was struck by one of several police Land
Rovers that raced among the youths in an attempt to prevent crowds from
forming. He died later ina hospital.
Police identified him as David Moore, 22, who lived at a nearby housing
Patterson files papers in bid
for gubernatorial nomination
LANSING-Hardline Oakland County Prosecutor L. Brooks Patterson has
filed the necessary papers to seek the Republican gubernatorial nomination
and will formally announce his intentions early next month.
Patterson insisted filing papers for his campaign committee did not con-
stitute an official announcement, but said he will havea formal statement at
a $25-per-plate fundraising breakfast in Bloomfield Township Aug. 12.
The prosecutor's entry in the race would give the moderate Gov. William
Milliken two conservative opponents should he choose to seek re-election.
Liver transplant patients'
survival aided by new drug
BOSTON-The odds of surviving tricky liver transplants improve
dramatically when patients are given an experimental new drug, resear-
chers say, and the medicine also may help surgeons transfer other organs
from the dead to the living.
Although liver disease is common, the art of replacing that organ is still
considered experimental because the operations usually fail.
But using a drug called cyclosporin A, doctors said they achieved "excep-
tionally encouraging early results" after transplanting livers in 12 people
whose own organs were ruined by cancer or other diseases.
An average of one year after the operations, 10 of these people, or 83 per-
cent, were still alive. In an earlier study, the same surgical team performed
170 liver transplants and gave the patients conventional drugs. Their sur-
vival rate after a year was only 32 percent.
Beer baron wants to erect
$15 million Statue of Justice
SAN FRANCISCO-France spent $250,000 in 1884 to give us our Statue of
Liberty, but now comes Paul Kalmanovitz, a reclusive beer baron who wan-
ts to spend $15 million to give us a Statue of Justice.
Kalmanovitz, the chairman of the board of General Breweries, got the
idea for a mammoth justice statue in San Francisco Bay from his attorney,
"Many years ago some friends and I conceived the idea that a country
dedicated to liberty and justice should have a statue to honor justice, too,"
Boccardo said yesterday.
When Boccardo brought up the idea, Kalmanovitz said he would donate $15
million for the statue ifa site could be found.
"I could build a pretty good statue for $15 million," Boccardo said. "I don't
have any idea what one would cost. If we wanted just a tall aluminum statue,
it probably could be built for $15 million. If they want an elaborate park and
all, it could cost $50 million or $100 million."
Amway held responsible for
salesman's rape of girl
ADA, Mich.-Amway Corp. is considering an appeal of a California jury's
decision to hold the company responsible for a salesman who raped a girl
while selling Amway products door-to-door, a company spokesman said
A Superior Court jury in San Diego Monday ordered Amway to pay the
girl, who was 12 at the time of the assault, $180,000 in damages for the injury
and humiliation she suffered.
Amway attorneys argued that its distributors are independent
businessmen who contract with the company to sell its products.
Distributors hire others to sell products who are not direct representatives of
Amway, they said.
Casey Wondergem, Amway spokesman, said the decision was "disturbing
and surprising" and corporate attorneys are carefully investigating their
options before proceeding with an appeal.
