President James J. Duderstadt jumped
to the top of the University's list this year
with his $260,709 salary, which includes
a 5-percent merit increase and a $16,667
equity adjustment. He surpassed Mark
Orringer, head of thoracic surgery at
University Hospitals, who earns $259,516,
and receives the University's second-high-

Duderstadt said,

Medical School employees may take in

Duderstadt said he is not even in the

actual income. "Last year I was right
about 100th in the University in sal-
ary," he said. "Now, I am about 601:1."
Harrison said the salaries here are
similar to those at other top universities.
"Our stated policy is to remain on

Supreme Court to rule on cable 'smut'
WASHINGTON - The Supreme Court agreed yesterday to decide whethe
Congress' first venture into fighting smut on cable television violates free-speec
rights. The battleground is public-access channels and those leased by cable
systems to local groups.
Opponents of a 1992 cable law that aims to restrict indecent programs on such
channels say it will encourage censorship in violation of the Constitution's Firs
A decision upholding the measure could spur Congress to impose further
restrictions on indecency, perhaps on commercial cable television channels or on-
line computer services, said I. Michael Greenberger, a lawyer for local program
producers and viewers challenging the 1992 law.
Congress enacted the measure proposed by Sen. Jesse Helms (R-N.C.) follow-
ing complaints about lewd programs on some leased-access channels.
The government says indecent programs depict or describe "sexual or excretory
activities or organs in a patently offensive manner," based on contemporary
community standards.
Indecent material is protected by the First Amendment, while programs judged
obscene have no free-speech protection.

have kept with that. We tend to be at the
top of the public schools and competi-
tive with a lot of the private schools.
However, we do remain behind the top
private universities."
LSA Dean Edie Goldenberg is now
the highest-paid female administrator
with a salary of $190,000, a raise of
$11,000 more than her salary last year.
Ten of the 15 highest-paid employ-
ees at the University are associated with
the Medical School, and all of the top
ten salaries are more than $207,000 for
fiscal year 1996.
Men's basketball coach Steve Fisher
earns $125,580 this year, an increase of
4 percent. Hockey coach Red Berenson
also received a 4-percent increase and

Survey: Sexual
harassment still a
problem in govt.
WASH INGTON - Sexual harass-
ment remains a serious problem for the
federal government despite widespread
training programs that have made more
workers aware of the problem, accord-
ing to a new survey released yesterday
by the U.S. Merit Systems Protection
The survey, based on questionnaires
completed by 8,000 federal workers
last year, found that 44 percent of
women and 19 percent of men who
responded to a survey of 13,200 fed-
eral workers said they had been the
targets of "uninvited, unwanted sexual
Those are approximately the same
percentages as surveys found in 1980
and 1987, a worrisome finding that
prompted the board to suggest that the
government's prevention programs
"need some serious reconsideration."
The study found the costs of harass-
ment in terms of sick leave and job
turnover jumped to $327 million in a

two-year period ending in April 1994,
up from $267 million for a similar pe-
riod ending in 1987. It said that the
higher figure may reflect inflation and
the rise in federal pay and noted there
was "a significant drop" in job turnover
and sick leave attributed to harassment
since the last survey.
Poll: Anxiety
energizes Dems
WASHINGTON - The voter anger
that spurred the Republican revolution
is turning to anxiety, splitting the new
GOP coalition and energizing Demo-
crats, according to a broad new study of
American opinion.
Discontented Americans pin much
of the blame for their worries on Con-
gress and little on President Clinton, the
Times Mirror Center for The People &
The Press found in a survey released
"Congress has become the focal
point of people's complaints, even
among Republicans," said poll di-
rector Andrew Kohut. "As for Bill
Clinton, the buck isn't stopping

China's president
visits South Korea
SEOUL, South Korea - Chinese
President Jiang Zemin arrived here yes-
terday on a milestone visit symbolizing
a new era of pragmatic diplomacy to-
ward the Koreas: Balancing old Social-
ist allegiances to the north with rapidly
growing economic overtures tothe south.
The first visit by a Chinese head of
state to South Korea comes three years
after the two sides established diplo-
matic ties in a Beijing initiative that
shocked Pyongyang but helped force it
to begin coming to terms with Seoul
and the outside world.
"President Jiang's visit itself will
draw an epochal line in the 5,000
years of South Korea-China rela-
tions," said Yoo Chong Ha, senior
presidential secretary for foreign and
security affairs.
Jiang's visit is expected to focus
on the mushrooming trade ties dur-
ing his summit meeting with South
Korean President Kim Young Sam.
In a few short years, China has be-
come South Korea's third-largest
trading partner, after the United
States and Japan, and its biggest re-
cipient of direct foreign investment.


At Jiang's request, he and his del-
egation of more than 100 mostly eco-
nomic technocrats will visit semi-
conductor, auto and heavy industrial
plants during their five-day visit.
Japanese Cabinet
member resigns
TOKYO-The resignation ofa Japa-
nese Cabinet minister yesterday defused
a diplomatic row between South Korea
and Japan that had threatened to disrupt
the two nations' ties just days before a
Pacific Rim summit.
South Korea had furiously demanded
that Takami Eto, head of the Manage-
ment and Coordination Agency, be fired
orresign for commenting last monththat
Japan did some "good things" during its
1910-45 colonial rule of Korea.
Eto is the latest of several politicians
to provoke Korean anger by seeming to
whitewash Japan's harsh 35-year rule
of their country.
Korean officials had insisted that
unless Eto left his post, they would
cancel a summit meeting between South
Korean President Kim Young Sam and
Japanese Prime Minister Tomiichi
Murayama set for Saturday.
