to increase
4 percent
By Amy Klein
Daily News Editor
As the University continues to hire
more women faculty, the number of
women recommended for promotion to
full professor has grown 4 percent from
last year.
Provost and Executive Vice Presi-
dent for Academic Affairs Gilbert R.
Whitaker Jr. said that at Friday's Board
of Regents meeting, 30 percent of the
recommended faculty promotions will
go to women. Last year, 26 percent of the
culty promoted were women.
Whitaker attributes the 4-percent rise
to an increase of women in the lower-
level positions.
"The number of women being hired
at the assistant professor level is up, and
they are working their way through the
pipeline," Whitaker said.
University President James J.
Duderstadt said that while the increase in

Carr to coach
as interim fOr
'95 season

By Nicholas J. Cotsonika
Daily Sports Editor
The new era of Michigan football
may have to wait.
The Wolverines' next head coach
will not be named until after the 1995
season in the interest of "stability" and
"continuity," Michigan Athletic Director
Joe Roberson said yesterday.
Interim head coach Lloyd Carr, who
replaced former head coach Gary
Moeller on May 4, will continue to lead
the Wolverines through the fall.
Moeller resigned two weeks ago af-
ter his arrest on charges of disorderly
conduct and assault and battery, follow-
ing an incident at a Southfield restaurant.
"Under the circumstances, (Carr) is
~ai5y the best man for the job," said Michigan
linebacker Jarrett Irons. "Coach Carr is a
Michigan man, and it will be easier to
make the transition with him."

Debate flares
between vendors,
tore owners
By Maggie Weyhing
Daily Staff Reporter
The battle for the sidewalks has heated up this
spring, as the conflict between the street vendors and
the Ann Arbor merchants sparks once again.
The city of Ann Arbor issues a sidewalk occupancy
permit to most vendors.
Jeff Ellis, the permit manager at the city clerk office,
said that to apply for a permit, a vendor must first try to
receive the signature from the store located behind the
*ndor's cart.
"The vendor does not necessarily need approval
from the store owner," Ellis said. "If the owner can verify
reasons why a vendor should not be able to set up in front
of his/her store, the city investigates the situation. How-
ever, the reason must be identified in the ordinance."
However, a mixed community of vendors and mer-
chants in Ann Arbor has angered some store owners and
managers. Many disagree with city permit policy and ar-
gue that the current policy has created an unfair situation.
Cava Java owner Kent Whitman said that despite a
*ty ordinance, vendors compete with surrounding

Roberson said
that Carr's ties to
the Wolverines
were important fac-
tors in his decision.
After consult-
ing individuals
whom he "had a
great respect for,"
such as former
Michigan head Car
coach Bo Schem-
bechler and Penn State head coach Joe
Paterno, Roberson said he felt hiring a
new coach at this point of the year would
be too difficult for players.
Paterno stressed the gravity of the
decision to Roberson, saying, "Joe, do
this right. The Big Ten and collegiate
football cannot afford to have Michigan
slip into mediocrity."
State panel
OKs increase
in 'U' funding
By James Nash
Daily Staff Reporter
A Senate subcommittee yesterday
recommended a 6-percent increase in
state funding to the University - a boost
that, if passed by both branches of the
Legislature, might cap tuition increases
at the rate of inflation.
But University officials and lawmak-
ers both concede that the 6-percent hike
will most likely be rolled back by either
the full Senate or a joint legislative com-
The three-member Senate higher
education appropriations subcommittee
voted unanimously yesterday afternoon
for 6-percent appropriations increases
for the University and 12 other public
state universities. Michigan State Uni-
versity was tagged for a 7.3-percent hike,
while Western Michigan University was
earmarked for 7.8 percent.
