Economics Prof. Daniel Fusfeld
reached an agreement with Regent
Thomas Roach (D-Saline) this
week which should allow Fusfeld
- the first University professor to
have his emeritus status threatened
- to be granted his retirement
memoir next month.
At the May meeting of the
University's Board of Regents,
Roach initiated a motion to
postpone Fusfeld's status because
of a comment he made in 1979.
After open controversy between
the University's faculty, admini-
stration, and regents, Roach and
Fusfeld sent a letter to University
President Harold Shapiro this week,
confirming that the regents will
reconsider the motion at their June
meeting. Roach indicated that
Fusfeld will be given emeritus
Roach initially introduced the
motion to table Fusfeld's memoir
or emeritus status because he had
not apologized for calling the
regents "stupid" at a meeting in
1979. Fusfeld still has not
apologized for the incident.
"He is being punished for
something he said eight years ago;
that's curtailing his freedom of
speech, it seems to me," said Jack
Weigel, chair of the Civil Liberties
Board. "A sanction has been
imposed once. It has a definite pos-
sibility of being imposed again."
Fusfeld said that he did not
remember what he said to the re-
gents in 1979, and that he consi-
dered the regental response an
infringement upon his right of free
"I think the basic issue which
has gotten faculty organizations
involved is that if the regents can
interfere in this issue of emeritus
status, they might also in the future
interferein promotions and tenure
decisions which have been left to
the faculty and administration;"
Former Faculty Senate Chair
William Stebbins said, "I'm
convinced the regents are smart
enough and sensible enough to
grant him emeritus status, and I'm
sure they will."
Emeritus status is an honor that

PIRGIM joins MSA fee request
By MARTHA SEVETSON
A long debated funding mech -
anism for the Public Interest
Research Group in Michigan
(PIRGIM) will be included with the
Michigan Student Assembly's
budget request to the University's
Board of Regents next month.
. MSA President Ken Weine led
the opposition to including
PIRGIM with MSA's request,
saying that "PIRGIM deals with is -
sues of a much different nature than
MSA and its affiliates," said Weine.
"(University President Harold) Sha -

proposals together it will nega -

from the vote, explaining that he

to make the decision.
"The political reality is that
PIRGIM is an effective lobby or-
ganization, and the weakest link in
the chain happens to be MSA," said
