In addition, ^University Counsel J, David Kerr would assume Bucklew's role' as chairperson of the administration team* Abel said in a letter to FA President James E. Hayes he had asked Bucklew to leave the team because of Abel's feeling that "the person, serving as the institution's chief academic officer ought not be - directly involved- in negotiations." When asked if tbe FA team had requested the Universty oust Bucklew from the bargaining1 team* Hayes replied. "absolutely not. It would be improper for our team to tell the University how to construct its team, or vice versa." Bucklew said he was happy with the move because he now could spend more time on academic programs. Since his arrival, on campus in 1970, Bucklew has been the University's chief negotiator and has a long background in labor relations. "The simple matter of time commitment is one * important consideration/' Abel wrote to Hayes. "It is my feeling the acting provost should devote his major effort to academic policy and interactions rather than to ' the demanding dynamics of the bargaining table." "Bucklew has done an outstanding job," Abel said, "but attempting to serve the needs of the faculty on one hand and to negotiate a difficult contract on the other is' inconsistent," Noll Bucklew BuckldW was nam'ed -acting provost this past summer after negotiations already Were underway. ^ s Bents en seeks support cm uru raoTo av mitc* hbao Roadblock aids search An Isabella County Sheriff Deputy stands guard with a shotgun while a Michigan State Trooper inspects cars in the northbound lane on U.S. 27 near Shepherd Monday afternoon.

News Editor Trying, to keep "all options open" in the face of possible budget cuts, 'the University has filed with the U.S. Department of Labor for an' exemption to the Jan. 1 boost in minimum wages for all students employed by the University, according to Frank 'Stiilings, acting Vice president for administration. This action has been taken by the University, according to Senator urges oil by DENISE KALIN LIFE Ass't. News Editor ~ Regulations on the price of oil should be phased out gradually to force the United States to explore for energy source* within its own country. Sen* Lloyd Bentsen, D» Texas, told the Michigan Oil and Gas Association Monday at the Mt. Pleasant Hotfday Ian. "One of the mout difficult problem* that concerns you (the association) today is the energy problem," Bentseri, who is seeking the ' Democratic presidential nomination, said. "It will depend on the severity of the winter as to how big the problem will be in. the North," FIVE YEARS ago Bentseri encouraged Congress not to depend on foreign energy sources* The Pear$on«Bentson bill, which currently is being drafted, will call for a gradual phasing out of regulations on fuel. The United States can't' be .completely energy self-sufficient, but "can go a long way in alleviating' the problem/' he said. People in the gas and oil producing states want to share with the northern states and make sure they have enough fuel to get. them through' the winter," according to Bentsen'i "I don't want to drive up the the pump and see it empty," he said. "The public is tired of the cbnfront&tioas between the President and Congress/' he continued. "They should work together for * compromise to help solve the - energy problem" Bentsen suggested exploration in other areas of energy such as solar and nuclear and to deal with the 343 (See "Bentsen,,.? page 12) Stiilings, because "we would rather pay more students at a sub-minimum wage than have to drop students from the payroll." • Currently, the University intends to pay students the new wage, however Stiilings said this action is being taken in the event that budget cuts force the University otherwise. THE CURRENT minimum wage prescribed by the Department of Labor is $2 per hour, but on Jan. 1 the minimum wage will be raised to . $2.20 per hour. Stiilings said certain in-, stitutions, such as colleges and universities, are given the option by the Department of Labor of filing for an exemption from the minimum, wage law, "Since the University budget still isn't settled, we need to keep all possible avenues .open in the- case that the budget- is cut- again," Stiilings said. "We want to .keep aD the students who are presently on* the payroll working and we Won't use the exemption unless we have to." Notices required by law announcing the possibility of sub- minimum wage pay to students will be posted on campus soon, Stiilings' said. . Stiilings said the University recognizes the importance- of security to student employes and students should be assured there will be no reduction in their wage "ALL WE ARE DOING by filing this exemption is to allow us to keep-student wage rates at their (See "University..." page 12, f ' i k •4'
