"I thought Leo Farhat was a very ex: cellent member," Abel said. "He was controversial on some issues-and challenged the Administration, but he asked us to look into matters and was a very good worker." Abel added he received a letter from (See "Farhat"—pagel2) "We got a lot of work done, and narrowed down the issues," said R. William Dunham, Administration spokesman. "Any time you narrow the issues you make substantial progress." The FA is trying to make both faculty and the Administration aware of Jheir problems and the fact they want to wrap the whole thing up-' ~ ._. The Crisis Committee does just that.
