Tenure questioned by faculty members during Oracle forum m fill i Oracle photos by Robin Clark I thursday's ORACLE Jan. 24, 1974 Vol. 8, No. 100 12 Pages Tenure policy questioned on validity, effectiveness BY WAYNE SPRAGUE Oracle Staff Writer Tenure policies are at the "brink of chaos" in the State University System, Dr. Sotirios Barber, assistant professor of Political Science at USF, said yesterday. continue to teach because of tenure," he said. ':.'._. Barber also said "a publish or perish standard is being imposed on the State universities quite contrary to law." There are strong indications faculty members without four publications will not be granted tenure, he. said: Riggs denied USF has a publish or perish policy but said there are some areas; such as science, where most faculty should have some kind of "scholarly output." Speaking at an Oracle spon sored open forum on tenure, Barber said a "quota system" endagers jobs of some untenured faculty. The quota only allows a certain percentage faculty to earn tenure, he said later. If a professor in a tenure earning position does not earn tenure in six years, he is removed, he said. Peddling end sought Barber predicted a revolt of non-tenured faculty to the system which he said regularly fires faculty more competent than it retains. However, Vice President for Academic Affairs Carl Riggs said he believes "strongly and deeply in tenure as an institution." But he said it has changed from a protection of academic freedom to a form of job security. Thi:=; is bad as it condones and protects incompetence in the faculty, he said. Dr. Jesse Binford, Faculty Senate chairman, said the academic freedom afforded outweighs disadvantages in the system. "Tenure is working," Binford aid. "As long as I've bee11 in Florida a tenured professor has neveer been fired." The real problem is slowing growth in universities, he said. According to Binford, there are too many persons with Ph.D's for available positions. "We need to encourage older Ph. to retire," Binford said.

He said he has had reports of these types of solicitation in dorms and in other locations. "They (salesmen) cannot go door to door in the halls and they cannot corner you in the halls," Busta said. "Our University policy prohibits people from doing this." ANYONE approached by a salesman on campus should notify either University Police or Student Affairs, Busta said. Dan Walbolt, assistant vice president for Student Affairs said yesterday he has received "just continuous complaints since I got here" concerning insurance agents on campus. If the com plainer supplies the solicitor's name, Walbolt said "I write them a letter right away and remind them of our policy "The most frequent complaints do concern the over-zealous actions on the part of life in surance agents," Walbolt said. Althnugh such persons are prohibited from being on campus or receiving mailing lists of students. Busta said it is "easy" for the policy to be violated. Student names are frequently obtained from illicitly acquired directories, he said. "They go in the UC and ask for a student directory and walk out with it.

THE ORACLE -January 24, 1974 5 Officials see Pinellas land Photo courtesy of USF Info Services St. Pete campus .. move eyed BY MATT BOKOR Oracle Staff Writer USF officials yesterday made their first formal tour of a site being considered for expansion of the Bay Campus, Vice President for Finance and Planning Bert Hartley said. Hartley said he and USF Pres. Cecil Mackey "only looked at the land on a very superficial level." THE LAND is the Bullard tract, located on the Pinellas side of the bay adjacent to the Howard Franklin Bridge, Harthey said. Hartley stressed this is "only one proposal for the campus extension.'' "There are two sites owned by Pinellas County that are being considered," Hartley said. "One near the Toytown Landfill area and the other in the western part of the county." "THE CITY of St. Petersburg is considering an expansion of the present campus, too," Hartley said. Hartley said there were "a couple" of developers in the Correction Dr. Jesse Binford, Faculty Senate chairman, was misquoted in yesterday's Oracle. The Oracle mistakenly quoted Binford as saying he was involved with the faculty group working for collective bargainjng. Binford said last night he is not involved in the group. Budget cuts cause groups to reevaluate programs county who have expressed in terest in expansion. He did not specify which developers were involved. "There are many things that must be taken into con sideration," Hartley said. AMONG considerations are typography of the land, availability of utilities and ac cessability of the campus itself, he said. "We do expect action from the county and city very soon," Hartley said.

Twenty vocalists, under the direction of Mtisic Department faculty member Everett S. Play not like Broadway Reviewed by ABRA BIGHAM Entertainment Writer Musical comedy lovers are always hoping for that "grand new musical," but in the case of "Two Gentlemen of Verona," which appeared Tuesday at the Bayfront Center in St. Petersburg, they will unfortunately lilave to keep waiting. In spite of exuberant per formances by the youthful cast, the show remains a mildly en-tertaining, over-produced and musically barren piece of theater. THE BEST dialogue in the show still belongs to the original Shakespeare; many of the "updated" gag lines are already too dated to be funny, and in place of poetry is much gimmickry and pre-1973 political moralizing, as in "Bring the Boys Home." The main problem with "Two Gentlemen of Verona," however, is not the dialogue itself, but the lack of it.Less dialogue means more music, and at best Galt McDermott's score is unexcitirig. The orchestration is excellent, but conductor Margaret Harris and her first-rate musicians deserve better material. THE SAME is true for the acting company of "Two Gen tlemen" (which, incidentally, won major awards for its Broadway run): most of the performances are bright, energetic and imaginative, but the songs, which are redundant "drawing-room" type rock, are a weak vehicle for their talents. Above all, Rozaa Wortham as Sylvia handles the vocal material well Her distinctive style makes some of the best moments in the show. Art of love Oracle photo by Chris Malone Louise Shaffer as Julia, although certainly no singer, has a flair for comedy and puts it to good use. Roy Brocksmith, portraying Thurio, handles his comic role professionally. Carlos Cestero's portrayal of Proteus is memorably creative and thoroughly enjoyable.

Off-campus Oracle move 'unwise' THE ORACLE-Janua. r y 24, 19H 7 Board rejects removal charge A charge from USF Pres. Cecil Macke y to mo v e the Oracle off campus was rejected yesterday b y the Board of Student Publications In a 5-3 vote, the Board refus ed Mackey s charge, given in writing to the Board earlier in it.s meeting Voting by secret ballot were: students Howard Steele Tony Carvalho, Ed Schless inger, and Mike Crews ; and faculty Dr. Mark Orr, Ruth Allen Dr. John Hatcher and Don Baldwin.' BOTH MACKEY'S statement of his charge and the Board's rejection statement are reprinted in full on this page. The "charge" memo written by Mackey to Dr. Joe Howell, v ice president for Studen t A f fairs was discussed at length by the Board and pro mpted th e Board' s initial 6-3 vote to recons i der their acceptance of Mackey's charge as the y interpreted Jan. 9 The v ote to recons ider was taken following a ruling by Chairman Margaret Fisher that, although the original vot e ac cepting the charge was taken b y secret ballot members of the committee who had not voted to accept could not mo v e to reconsider. HA TC HER then withdrew his motion which was subsequently made by Baldwin -, --S-P-.8* ;,-em _____ o __ I January 23, 1974 MEMORANDUM TO: Dr. Joe Howell Vice President for Student Affairs FROM: Dr. Margaret Fisher, Chairman, Board of Student Publications At its meeting January 23, 1974, the Board of Student Publications moved to reconsider the motion to accept the charge of the President. The motion to reconsider was adopted by a vote of 6 to 3 The motion to accept the charge of the President was defeated. The Board of Student is unable to accept the charge as stated in the letter of the President of Jan. 22. The Board reached this decision after careful and lengthy consultation. The members agree that moving the Oracle off campus is both unwise and unne cessary, and consider the present guidelines to give ample protection and control to the President as Publisher, with safeguards of due process. Any defects could be more effectively remedied by changes in the present structure. WE REALIZE the sense of urgency you feel in constructing a proposal to carry out your decision However, we believe the following considerations present some of the important for the con clusion that a move off campus is widesirable. 1. First and foremost, we are convinced from our study that historical precedent demonstrates the almost certain failure of an independent off-campus university-oriented press. True in dependence is largely a myth in the first place and we feel satisfied with the amount of freedom the student press currently enjoys on campus. 2 Practically speaking, such a. move would immediately necessitate the creation of other on-campus communications to take up effectively the void left by removing the Oracle Such fragmentation, such additional devices, would most probably be more expensive than the present program in the long run. 3 As a Board concerned with the educational value of student writing and publication we strongly feel that the loss of the paper on campus would severely impair the vitally important educational function which the Oracle provides for students in so many diverse areas. 4. An effective system of internal communication is essentialto the operation and quality of the University The student publications program supplies much of this need at present, with a good base for furthe r improvement. The Board does not consider it realistic to expect any external agenc y to provide internal communication of similar quality and eff ec tiveness 5 The superior qu a lity of the Oracle has been d e monst rated repeatedly by awards from out s ide thi s institution In the opinion of this Board, the v a lue r e alized for th e Uni ve rsi t y from the student publications program are well worth the investm ent, and the benefits far outweigh the risks and difficulties involved in the role of th e Pre sid e nt as Publisher.

Baldwin a r gued th e Board cou l d retain con trol of the Ora c le s off-campus mo v e by a cc epting Mackey's charge and suggested the Board m ight s w a y him from his r igid decision. FOLLOWI N G the Board s decision to reconsider Fisher noted three options the Board could choose, rather than pro v iding Mackey with a plan to move the Oracle off campus. She sugges t ed the Board could : -Set a date for termination of publicatfon and that it do a cos t s s t udy to assist in a bid for publication ; -Recommend a corporate structure and assist in preliminary screening of prospective vendors; or -Act as advisor to the President in any publication contract. "It' s clear Mackey wants us to propose a plan to move the paper off Steele s aid. It would be a waste of time for us to recom m .end another alternative to him." "IF WE propose a corporate structure and it fails this Board is going to get the ultimate blame, he said. Hatcher said he opposed complete independence since he believe s the paper would have no educational function or connection to the campus, would cause a communications break down, and would probably be editorially controlled Also present during portions of the meeting were exoffic i o Board members Leo Stalnaker, Patricia Lee Valerie Wickstrom and Board member L .G.

I indicated t o t he Board that I would like .t o hav e from them, early .in Quarter II, an indicatio n of their 0\"11 timetable for completion of the proj ect. I said further that it seemed to me that.the y should hav e proposals completed prior to the end of Quarter III in order that there w ould be time for implementation of recom mendations during the latter part of Quarter III and Quarter IV looking toward operation as an independent entity beginning Quarter I of the 1974-75 academic year. I ASKED the Board to consider organizational structure, as well as possible financing, in order to make the transition as smooth as possible. I specified that I was asking them to suggest a plan that would lead to a truly indeRefldent entity and emphasized that I thought it appropriate for the Uni v ersity to anticipate phasing out of financial support o ver a two or three year period The kind of financial support might exist during the transition period could take a number of forms including the purchase of a fixed number of papers each year to be distributed b y the Uni versity on campus, or commitments o ver the period to buy certain amounts of advertising, either for University events or space in the form of a University news sheet similar to Campus Digest. I asked for the Board' s comments on the alternatives which might be most desirable In the discussions I emphasized the need for early action so that it would be possible to begin promptly to consider possible alternatives for space for the housing of the newspaper. It is my understanding from discussions with you that you have conveyed the essence of these remarks to the Publications Board again subsequent to my meeting with them in your discussions with Margaret Fisher and other members of the .Board.

Dr. Richard Bowers, athletic director, said he would give Don Williams' head Coach replacement "every opportunity to interview Collins in the possibility of keeping him (Collins)." However, Bowers has also said he would "give the new coach an opportunity to bring in his own staff." Both Bowers and Student Affairs Vice-President Joe Howell agreed Collins' future at USF would be determined largely by the incoming coach, but said Collins' familiarity with the program and area could make the 33-year old Ohian a coaching asset. "I feel he

10-THE ORACLE January 24, 1974 U ravich wants UP manual beefs BY l\IARY RUTH MYER Oracle Starr Writer Paul Uravich, director of Public Safety and Security, said yesterday he would like all ob jections to the revised statewide UP policy manual to be voiced directly him. "I'd rather not have to debate through the Oracle but have all objections to the manual come through to me," he said. "I'd rather ta)k on a one-to-one basis." Uravich said no one has ever talked to him about the manual. "It's no secret document, anyone can go to the library and read it." Tuesday, Tampa American Civil Liberties Union President Jack Moore said parts of the policy manual appear to be un constitutional. ''I'd like to have Jack Moore ask me about these a.llegations he's made," Uravich said Moore questioned the manual's treatment of mace, dossiers, and Ticketer takes back ticket polygraph tests. "Mace is a defensive weapon not an offensive one," Uravich said. "It is not to be used with a number of people but on a one -to one basis as a last resort. before using a weapon." He said USF police do not carry mace because it may be harmful if safety procedures are not followed after its use. "There was a controversy among the directors about mace, so the manual leaves the decision Oracle photo by Robin Clark "Mace ls a defensive weapon, not an offensive one... the manual leaves the decision of its use up to each director." -Paul Uravlch of its use up to each director," Uravich said. Moore had questi o ned dossiers kept by UP and methods for monitoring information con tained in them Monitoring is done by courts and persons in authority for law enforcement functions," Uravich said. "We are bound by ou{ responsibilities as Jaw enforcement officers and by Florida statutes to follow the guidelines in the policy manual. He said a amount of research went into development of the manual and it will be periodically revised. "I think the only wsy the manual can effectively be revi se d is by our knowing what is considered ohjcctionable in it, he said. "If these feelings are present, why don't people come and tell me why?" SG announces rules for write-ins Any qualified student who has not declared candidacy for an SG office but wishes to run, may campaign as a write-in can didate Beth Bell, SG Election Rules Committee !ERG) chairman said yesterday. To run for senator, a candidate must be a registered student this quarter carrying nine or more credit hours and have at least a 2.0 cumulative GPR. according to election rules but space will be provided for an elector to write in a name. Write-in candidates must comply with all ERC campaign regulations Janet Price, a University Police meter maid for three months, discusses an illegal parking ticket with an unidentified campus visitor. The visitor, unaware of University parking regulations, talked Price out of :the ticket, making a happy ending for a long story. Candidates for SG president or vice-president must be taking eight or more credit hours this quarter with a minimum cumulative GPR of 2 0 They also must have completed 90 hours with at least 15 at USF RICKI'S LAUNDRY B'ASKET Come Today!!! Candidates debate issues Names of write-in candidates will not appear on the ballot, 'BY JILL AARONSON Oracle Staff Writer SG presidential and vicep res i den ti al candidates discussed their campaign plat forms yesterday at a debate sponsored by the Natural Science College Council. All declared presidential candidates, Andy Derek, 3C()M; Steven Johnson, 3MAN; Richard Merrick, 8 ENG; and Johnathan Wise, 3 PHI, were present. Johnson spoke of what he called the need for a better e:i tertainment program at USF. "WE HAD REALLY great entertainment at my junior college and there is no reason why we can't have a good program at USF," he said. Greater communication, Derek said, could help solve many problems. "We (SG) should put aside flamboyant and inflammable rhetoric and open up channels of communication." Merrick stressed his experience with SG at USF "I know what's been done, what hasn't been done and why it hasn't. I won't need a cram course in .SG"' Merrick said. SG IS NOT running the University, Wise said, but should assist the Administration. "I want to push for information to involve the student and rid the campus of apathy," he said. Gary Manka, 3EDE, was the only candidate not at the debate. "SG,'; said Michael Einstein, 4ACC, "should work on academics. One way would be to publish faculty evaluations." John Koch, 3REL, said he has become personally acquainted with many people in his years at USF. "My availability; my knowledge is what I offer you," he said. IT'S NOT that students don't care, said William Parker, 3PHI, it's that they don't know what's happening. "My job as vice president would be to find out what the students want," he said. 8 Mu autos vandalized University Police (UP) last night reported at least eight vehicles were broken into Tuesday night. The autos were all located in Parking Lot 16, adjacent to Mu Hall. John Romero, who lives in Lambda 118, said he discovered his van had been broken into about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday as he was preparing to go to a basketball game. Police reported several vehicles had been entered by prying open a vent window. All autos had their tape decks removed, some were also missing speakers; early reports indicated. Police said those taking the property apparently concentrated their effort on the two rows of cars closest to Fletcher Ave. Police estimated the crimes took place sometime after 11: 30 p .m. Tuesday night. Paul Uravich, director of Public Safety and Security, requested anyone witnessing unusual movement of cars or people near the vicinity of the Mu parking lot late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning to contact UP. Wayne Wechsler, 3ENG, said he wants to make the Student Senate "strong, innovative, and creative." He said he plans to go out to talk to students. Platform statements from ali SG candidates should be submitted by today at 1 p.m. for publication in the Oracle Tuesday. WOMEN'S SELF DEFENSE Course -i.
