New department
heads to stress
program quality

By LOU FINTOR
Retaining quality faculty members
and maintaining high, academic stan-
dards will become top priorities for
political science administrators over
the next year, chairman-elect John
Kingdon said yesterday.
Kingdon is one of two University
professors recently approved by the
Board of Regents to head departments
with chairperson vacancies. He will
succeed current chairman Samuel
Barnes and begin a five-year term July
1.
"THE BIGGEST issue facing the
department over the next couple of
years is hiring and recruiting quality
faculty members," Kingdon said, ad-
ding that he will also focus on main-
taining the quality of graduate students
admitted to the program.
According to Kingdon, political
science is the third largest elected
major by students in the College of
Literature, Science, and the Arts, and
consistently ranks among the top ten
political science departments in the
nation.
"I'm pleased and flattered to have
been selected to chair it, and I plan to
do everything I can to see that the
quality-is maintained," Kingdon said.
THE REGENTS also approved Art
History Prof. Joel Isaacson to head the
history of art department. He will suc-
ceed current chairman Nathan Whit-

man for a three-year term also begin-
ning July 1.
"I'm delighted to be selected,"
Isaacson said. "I basically feel we have
a strong department. It is committed to
undergraduate teaching and resear-
ch," he added.
Isaacson said that during his chair-
manship, he hopes to "foster closer ties
with other units on campus,"
specifically the School of Art and the
Museum of Art.
PROFESSOR Nathan Whitman,
outgoing chairman of the history of art
department, said his successor should
make the planned $2 million Tappan
Hall addition a top priority. The ad-
dition is expected to house a fine arts
library and slide collection.
"This has become a top priority in
light of the recent Economics Building
fire," Whitman said. "It should cer-
tainly be the major preoccupation of
my successor," he added.
"That's (the addition) something that
I'm terribly interested in and hope that
before my three years are up, it will be
completed," Isaacson said.
A fire virtually destroyed the
Economics Building and items of
historical value were unsalvagable.
The Tappan Hall addition will be
especially designed to resist fire and
preserve irreplacable items held by the
department.

Today
The Weather
Temperatures will rise to the 80s today, with only a slight chance of thun-
dershowers and scattered clouds. .Q
Position open
STUDENTS WHO want to become part of the University's administra-
tive doings now have a good opportunity. A position currently is
available for a graduate or undergraduate student representative on the
University's Budget Priorities Committee. Those interested may pick up
applications until May 17 at the Michigan Student Assembly's offices in the
Union. MSA representatives stress that the student representative will play
an important role in upcoming school and college reviews. w .
Stay hungry
T HE TABLES have turned for Jesse White, a convicted murderer
who staged a hunger strike last year at the West Virginia Penitentiary.
White, who shunned solid food for four months to protest his living con-
ditions, has now become the prison's cook. "Jesse's doing a fine job," says
Warden Manfred Holland, who gave White the culinary position im-
mediately after the hunger strike ended. During his fast, White's weight
plummeted from 240 pounds to a svelete 124. White's new job is sure to give
the former faster ample food for thought. ut
Drive with medicare
N ELDERLY couple in Hastings, Mich., decided to sample life in
the fast lane yesterday by taking a 50-mile joyride. Jack Wilson, 70, and
Gertrude Cremer, 65, strolled out of their senior citizens home, stole a car,
and took an illegal spin. "I think they just got together and decided to go for a
ride," said Hastings Police Chief Mark Steinfort. "There was no criminal in-
tent and we do not intend to prosecute them." Police, however, did put out an
alert for the pair, who were described by officers as unarmed and "very
senile." The couple was found eight hours later parked in a driveway. The
two were then returned to the home, slightly shaken from their automotive
adventure.
