MONTREAL -- Federalists who
dvocated a united Canada celebrated a
airline victory yesterday over support-
rs of Quebec's independence move-
ent inta dramatic secession referen-
urn that will leave deep scars behind.
The Canadian Broadcast Corp. re-
'orted last night that 50.6 percent of
luebecers voted against the referen-
um, while 49.4 voted in favor of sov-
reignty. Only 50,000 votes separated
be two sides, the CBC reported.
The turnout, after a passionate cam-
aign, was exceptionally large - 92
ercent of the roughly 5 million regis-
ered voters.
"To see it escape our grasp is hard to
tear," said the separatists' charismatic
eader, Lucien Bouchard. "Let's keep
le faith, because the next time will be
he right time. And the next time could
ome quicker than you think."
About 82 percent of Quebecers are
rench-speaking, and roughly 60 per-
ent of those voted for separation. As
xpected, roughly 90 percent of En-
;lish-speaking and immigrant Quebec-
rs voted "No."

Jacqueline Lawson, an associate pro-
fessor of English and chair of the fac-
ulty senate on the University's Dearborn
campus, yesterday reported slow
progress on improving relations be.
tween faculty governance and the
campus's administration.
At yesterday's meeting of the Senate
Advisory Committee on University
Affairs, Lawson described increasing
tensions on the Dearborn campus in the
face of recent administrative actions,
such as possible violations ofgrievance
procedures and the publication of a
revised faculty handbook without fac-
ulty senate input.
"A faculty grievance was recently
quashed by the provost," Lawson said.
She gave further details that Dearborn's
Provost Robert Simpson had denied a
hearing in a recent case of an unnamed
According to Regents' Bylaw 5.09,
faculty members with grievances on
issues of tenure are entitled to a hearing
by a special committee set up by
Simpson said he did not find the
specific case grievable "because it was
an administrative matter." He said he
thought the appropriate procedurehad
been followed.
Upon the provost's action, Lawson
said she took it upon herself to autho-
rize a hearing.
"I went ahead, as chair of the faculty
senate, and took the case to the faculty
senate grievance committee," she said.
The chair of the committee, Donald
Anderson, is currently reviewing the
request to convene the committee.
Lawrence Berkove, a professor of
English and president of the Dearborn
chapter ofthe American Association of
University Professors, said AAUP com-
pletely supports the faculty government.
"We're helping them with informa-
tion on faculty rights on other cam-
puses across the state and country,"
Berkove said. "We're trying to ensure
that the standards offaculty governance
that are generally accepted as norms are
accepted at Dearborn's campus."
Lawson said the recent publication
by the provost's office of a faculty
handbook caused further tensions. The
handbook, which was distributed on
campus last week, was compiled and
published without the approval of the
faculty senate.
"From my perspective, it did not need
to go through faculty senate," Simpson
said, adding that the senate was not
meeting at the time of the revisions
during the summer.
Simpson appointed a committee of
five faculty members to help draft the
handbook, Lawson said. She also
claimed that crucial sections from the
1981 handbook, relating to grievances
and promotion, were omitted, in viola-
tion of actual grievance procedures.
Simpson denied that any parts were
omitted from the handbook, saying that
it was only a revision of the earlier
Berkove did not comment on the
omitted sections, but agreed that the

procedures followed were not normal.
"The senate has a right to amend its
