I don't expect any offer and I don't have any intention of leaying Cen- tral Michigan," the CMU President said. Boyd explained that candidacy represents the final serious consideration given to anyone after a preliminary search. He explained that as a candidate, the person indicates that he is seriously interested. t "Since I've never been contacted, then in that respect I'm not a candidate,'1' he said." „"I have a tremendous job here at Central," continued the President. "I'm involved, with many projects which I have a great deal of interest in and I like the people ,1 work with.( It would be a very difficult decision for me to leave for any other university job.,x Stories have been circulating in various newspapers in Ohio that Boyd was one of five educators seriously considered for the post. The COLUMBUS DISPATCH recently said that Boyd, along with Edwin Young, vice president and chancellor at the University of Wisconsin at Madison, were the Only two remaining for serious consideration for the OSU job. "If the story in the paper is correct, I feel indeed flattered that I was thought so highly of," said Boyd. "Ohio,State is a top university that I feel a great deal of affection for." The other three on the list were Daniel G. Aldrich, chancellor at the University of California at Irving, E. Laurence Chalmers, Jr., president of the University of Kansas, and Willard L. Boyd, president of the University of Iowa. "William B. Boyd has had previous association with Ohio State. The 48-year- old CMU President served as director of the honors program at OSU in 1965-66. Dr. Rx)ger M. Busfield; Jr., of CMU's Board of Trustees, said yesterday, "I don't think we'll lose William B. Boyd as our president to any other university at this time. I don't believe he'll be a candidate for a presidency elsewhere." Dr. Busfield noted that CMU presidents and vice presidents are to give the Board of Trustees, one year's notice before leaving a position. "I disregard all the recent stories as rumor;" said Dr. Busfield. Boyd said he wants to consider the incident closed. "It was a very embarrassing situation," he said. "I regard the entire thing as a big nuisance." The DISPATCH reported yesterday that the Ohio State University Board of Trustees is in the process of making a new list of potential candidates. Reporters in Ohio are still speculating that William B. Boyd's name will reappear on a new list. CENTRAL MICHIGAN Weekender" edition More features, columns and entertainment!!

Sue Sutton, council representative, keeps tally. By MARK LETT LIFE Student Affairs Editor In a flurry of balloting Tuesday and Wednesday, residents of Woldt and Emmons dormitories voted in favor of a proposal to combine their respective councils into xa joint organization to service both halls. The move, which passed easily in both dormitories, opens the door for realignment Of both dorm councils and construction of a new constitution. Emmons, which conducted elections Tuesday, passed the measure by an overwhelming 283-24 vote. The proposal was expected-to meet somewhat-stiffer opposition in Woldt, but it still passed with little difficulty, 291-17. DECISION LEFT TO COUNCILS With passage of the proposal, it will be up to existing Woldt-Emmons councils to decide whether or not to disband and schedule elections for represntatives for a new council. Job market for teachers overcrowded .^j *■ $ ,i^ late relief in sight By BRIAN HLAVATY LIFE Staff Writer Teaching, in recent years considered a siamour job because of the short'working year and rising salaries, how presents 1 exe Problem to those interested in wementary and secondary education. ' ari loh market for teachers in these 2s has been tightening up irt recent mLSxand there appears to be no immediate relief in sight, to* V.according to Michael Carey, assis- «k director of Placement,'stating there Lc 01[ers«PPly of teachers and an un- "ersuppiy of jobs is not completely true. '•In certain .areas of teaching there is bv*« ite °verjsupply which makes it ««remely difficult to get a job," he plains. "But there are definite areas Jjere jobs are available if one looks nar<i enough." ronX undersupply of men teachers cur- sntiy exists in Industrial, Vocational, fecial and Elementary Education. mese a mac ni.m,i^ «,„ »*„,-*. appears, however*, that Special Ed. might be feeling effects of an "oversell." "Special Ed. has long been cited as an open field but mow shows signs of filling up," says Carey based on statistics from the Registrar's office. - According to Robert Conneli, Registrar, CMU graduated only 18 teachers of the emotionally disturbed, in June, 1970-71. Twenty-six teachers of the mentally handicapped, however, graduated in June, 1970 and an additional 34 one. year later. CHANGING COMMITTMENTS "These figures seem to indicate ah opening in this, field which is true," states Cornell. "But you have to remember those people made committments two and three years ago when the market was somewhat better in all fields. ' "Registration data sheets collected in 1971 fall registration show 349 people indicated a preference to teach the emotionally disturbed while 386 were interested in.teaching the mentally handicapped," he reported. . .. "But in no way does this commit them Many will undoubtedly change and will have a major ^authorized in a completely different field. - „ "But it does show that within the next three years there quite possibly, will be a significant increase in Special Ed. teachers available. This could fill up much of the job market," he continues. UNCERTAIN FUTURE This uncertainty in the number of people entering various field helps create doubt regarding which fields may open up or grow tighter in the future. Fields where there is a definite over- supply of teachers are Social Studies ■ and English. Physical Education is also filling up rapidly. Registration data information shows from Fall, 1970 to Fall, 1971 students indicating a preference in History and English (both teaching and non-teaching) dropped from 558 to 383 and 725 to 580 respectively. A strong reason for this drop, according to Conneli, could be the growing lack of jobs in those fields. "We hesitate to tell incoming freshman'they should or should not go into a particular field because of job availability," Carey points out /"A' student should not enter a field that doesn't interest him just because he might find a job there." .»•>♦:■« •»»'♦*>* V iv»»«6«tv«*i*«.i«v**v*tV«.,i.<iVAV Another option will be retaining present dormitory representatives and merging the two bodies into one. In either case however, some juggling of top council positions will be necessary before the new body can act. Combining two dorm councils is not a new idea. Last year, Saxe and Herrig combined councils and drew up a joint constitution. SITUATION EXISTS AT SAXE-HERRIG Situations between Saxe-Herrig and" Woldt-Emmons are similar. Saxe and Herrig share a common lobby as do Woldt and Emmons. Because of the close proximity of the dormitories, it was decided forming a joint council would promote interTdormitory activities and enlarge the treasury for a wider scope of use. "We hope that by combining the two councils we will cut some communication problems that have existed between the two dormitories," stated Dale Cleland, Emmons head resident. "Last fall, we had a lot of hassle as to the amount that should come out of each dorm fund to buy a stereo for the lobby. "There has also been some debate over the money collected from pinball machines in the lobby," added Cleland. "Right now, Emmons is getting all money from the machines. We haven't drawn up a constitution yet but we're examining the system Saxe-Herrig uses. The joint council should solve a lot of problems between the two dorms if representatives react sensibly to it." DORMS PASS DRINKING LEGISLATION In other balloting, both Woldt and Emmons voted for passage of the proposal to extend consumption of alcoholic beverages into dormitories. An affirmi- tive vote of 75 percent of the combined .number of residents of the two dormitories was necessary for passage. Roughly 82 percent of the combined total voted in favor of the proposal. In Emmons, over 90 percent of the residents approved the proposal while over 92 percent of the Woldt residents voted affirmatively. Other dormitories including Merrill, Sweeney, Larzelere, Saxe and Herrig have also passed the University alcoholic beverage policy for dormitories. In many dorms, policy change is expected to go into effect.this week^ j* ':* <"a •lOttr 5 (/'
