Fewer blacks entering Harvard

The number of black students that
enrolled at Harvard University last
year dropped 16 percent causing the
school to re-evaluate its recruiting
Harvard accepted 171 black students
last year, but only 56.7 percent enrolled
and anestimated 53.2 percent are ex-
pec enroll this year.
University administrators said they
were disappointed by the drop, blaming
it on stiff competition for black students
among Ivy League schools such as
Yale, Princeton, and Brown univer-
Officials in the admissions office said
they may restructure the current
recruiting programs. Last year several
Harvard students traveled across the
nation to recruit blacks students and
many black alumni were asked to en-
courage potential applicants.
The number of minority students at-
tendiig Harvard remained constant
and the percentage of Hispanic and
Peurto Rican students went up
significantly following high-powered
recruiting programs targeted at these
students. - The Harvard Crimson
Washington cuts $13 million
Officials at the University of
Washington will eliminate three depar-

tments and 19 academic programs by
1985 to save the school $13 million.
Following a 7 percent cut in state ap-
propriations last week, the university
announced its plan to wipe out
programs such as art and business
education, kinesiology, and nutritional
President William Gerberding said
the school will concentrate on im-
proving undergraduate instruction,
restoring funds to the library budget,
and increasing computer services.
Tenured faculty members in the
slated programs have been promised
jobs in other university departments
and students effected by the cuts will
have until June 1984 to complete

Wisconsin vetoes union
The Board of Regents at the Univer-
sity of Wisconsin in Madison voted last
week to deny collective bargaining
rights to faculty members.
Professors, instructors, and teaching
assistants have been fighting to be
represented by a state group, similar to
a union, to bargain for higher wages
and benefits.
The Teachers Association of the
University of Wisconsin Faculties
asked the state legislature earlier this
year to grant them the right, but the
government officials turned the issue
over to the regents.
Throughout the day-long debate
which preceded the vote, the regents
contended that the group's represen-

tation would disrupt the "congenial"
relationship between the University
administration and faculty members.

TAs sue Berkeley
Teaching assistants at the University
of California at Berkeley are suing the
school for abruptly changing from a
trimester system to the standard two-
term year.
The suit, filed by the American
Federation of Teachers, charges that
the university did not give TAs
adequate notice of the schedule change.
The teachers saya two-semester school
year will require 30 more teaching
hours than the old system.
Teachers are not trying to block the
university from implementing the plan,
but they are asking for a wage increase
to compensate for the extra work.

California prof. caught
spray painting
A German literature professor at the
University of California in San Diego
faces a possible six-month jail sentence
or $1,000 fine for spray painting
"Killers for Reagan" on a stairwell in a
campus building.
The campus police last month
charged Prof. Reinhard Lettau for
vandalizing state property and issued
him a citation.
A graduate student reported that Let-
tau was spray painting the stairwell in
the Humanities and Social Sciences
Building during school hours. Lettau

was suspended for five days in 1972
because he swatted a Marine recruiter
with a newspaper.

Princeton student gets
delayed degree
A Princeton University student who
was denied her diploma last year
because she plagiarized portions of a
term paper will receive the belated
degree this month.
Princeton officials last year witheld
Garielle Napolitano's degree and
notified law schools she had applied to
that the student falsified research in-
Napolitano, an honors student in
Spanish, sued Princeton for its decision
to delay her degree, but she lost the
case and two appeals.
Napolitano did not participate in the
school's commencement ceremonies
last week and instead asked that her
diploma be mailed. She said she has not
decided whether she will attend law

Students at Western Michigan
University may have a chance tojloin
the Guardian Angels. The national
group, based in New York, is con-
sidering starting a patrol on Western's
campus, despite criticism from many
students and residents in Kalamazoo.
The critics said the university does
not have a severe crime problem and
the campus police do an adequate job of
patrolling the area. But John McKim,
national leader of the Guardian Angels,
said the patrol would prevent crime.
If a patrol is established the group
will call for volunteers from the univer-
