CCEW avoids review
center averts cuts
By FANNIE WEINSTEIN
University Vice President for
Academic Affairs Billy Frye announ-
ced yesterday that, based on the report
made by the review committee
evauating the Center for the Continuing
Education of Women (CCEW), the center
will not undergo a major budgetary
review under the University's five-year
plan of budget reduction and
"In the manner that I have accepted
the report . . . I'm not going to follow
through with the budgetary review,"
Frye said, adding that action has not
yet been taken on specific recommen-
dcations made by the committee.
"THE REPORT is well-researched
and well-argued. It's a very strong
report in terms of the quality of the cen-
ter," he said. "It's one of the best
reports I've seen."
Unlike the other schools and units
targeted for review under the Univer-
sity's plan- to reallocate $20 million of
general fund money in the next five
years, the CEW review committee was
charged only with evaluating the per-
formance and utility of the program.
According to Frye, CCEW will now be
categorized with those units not under
review and will only be subjected to an
annual evaluation where budget cuts of
up to 15 percent will be considered.
CCEW DIRECTOR Jean Campbell
also commended the committee on its
report. "I think they did a very serious
and thorough job ... They were so at-
tentive to the charge."
"I think all of the recommendations
have merit," she said. "I will be
discussing them with Vice President
Frye and Mr. Holbrook (Robert
Holbrook, associate vice president for
academic affairs) next week."
"The important thing is that this
report has been accepted," explained
Campbell, who said she felt the report

Artist to sue art fair group
By KRISTIN STAPLETON
The case for reinstating local black artist Jon
Lockard in this year's art fair will be argued in court
r today by famed civil liberties attorney William Kun-
stler, noted for his defense of the Chicago Seven, ac-
cording to an associate of Kunstler.
Kunstler reportedly will charge racial
discrimination and violation of due process in the Ann
Arbor Street Art Fair Inc.'s decision to exclude
The Ann Arbor City Council last night
passed a resolution requiring the
judging criteria for artists be made
available to the public. See story, Page
Lockard, whose works often portray blacks
struggling against oppression.
A TEMPORARY restraining order seeking to rein-
state Lockard was filed in 15th U.S. District Court
yesterday by Kunstler's associate, Mark Gombiner,
who said Kunstler would arrive today for a 4:15 p.m.
hearing at the Federal Building.
The suit involves both reinstating Lockard and
seeking compensating damages.
Lockard, who has participated in the fair for 22
years, claims that racial discrimination is involved in
the Ann Arbor Street Art Fair, Inc. acceptance com-
mittee's decision to reject him. Committee sources
deny, however, that racism was involved.
During a press conference yesterday, Gombiner
said the secrecy of the criteria used by the committee
to jury artists and the anonymity of committee mem-
bers represent a violation of Lockard's 14th Amen-
dment right to due process. Artists have a right to
know on what .ground their work is refused and to
have some appeal if they are rejected, Gombiner
"WE'RE NOT exactly sure what process is due
someone," Gombiner said, "but here (in Lockard's
case) it is clear that there is no process."
Gombiner charged that the acceptance commit-
tee's refusal to make its selection process public is an
attempt to hide the racist basis of Lockard's rejec-
When asked if he had any proof that racism was in-
volved in the committee's decision, Gombiner said,
"We aren't able to show that as an absolute fact, but
