and its effect on a students body image j during the last year Ive taken care of the mechanics of which were then in process she said Ive completed what i said i was doing during the open hear Ings the Diihr initial determination compared Roberts teaching research leadership ability and publications with those of five males and another female in eps it appears that the eps committee discounted a significant part of Roberts research teaching and publications and committee work As evidenced by the fact that in All areas in which the candidates for tenure were supposed to be judged the complainant met the criteria equally if not better than the present male members of the department at the time of their candidacy for tenure the criteria were applied differently on the complainant the report said in 1972 the report also said 16 per cent of the phys granted in the us system went to women in fiscal year 1973 12 women and 60 men were promoted to tenure roughly the same per cent of 24 new professors hired system wide in 1973 one was a woman it continued and of 24 new associate professors three were women but All in a traditional female area of nursing or Home economics the report prepared by equal rights investigator Catherine Ferrial was an initial determination rather than Protection of dormant savings accounts urged the associated press testimony on the treatment of Dor Mant accounts by saving and loan institutions stirred a stae lawmaker into action Friday a state sen James Flynn West Allis ordered Daniel Fernbach a staff member for the legislative Council to look into practices of eliminating interest payments and assessing ser vice charges on accounts that have not been used for a certain amount of time Flynn said legislation should also be drafted to halt such practices in afraid people Are having their accounts stripped of them without knowing what the Law is Flynn said Colleen Cox an aide to state treasurer Charles Smith discussed the practice

been informed of the theft a final decision the Case could now go through a pubic hearing in Diihr or Roberts could take it through Circum court Roberts Rose Weston said they would explore avenues for the most expeditious approve la whether they choose the court or Diihr the wait will be it least several months t the significance of the report Roberts insisted was Fiat it broke the silence around her Case in particular avid women studies in general i l if a woman cant assert what she knows if Shes silent because of the social Milieu then none of us can human beings she said the positive result of the report is the validation of the position of those who had the to take a Public stand t she and other feminists insist that women be meaningful must delve into new methods and ways of thinking restructuring of authority and changes in patterns in the learning process you cant Hope to generate new knowledge if you try to attain it through the same old knowledge gathering methods thais the essential problem she said but the whole system of tenure has to allow people to think in different ways David Hanson Legal counsel to Lav Chancellor Edwin Young played Down the significance of the initial finding of probable cause by Diihr the report Only Means that Diihr has concluded theres some evidence that could support the charge of discrimination but that a Long was from determining there actually was any discrimination i we dont share their belief that there was probable cause and we certainly dont believe there was any discrimination in the Joan Roberts Case he said whether or not Joan Roberts was discriminated against in the decision not to Grant her tenure will not be soon Diihr admits a backlog of almost six months in equal rights cases and Hanson claimed it was closer to a year the courts could move As slowly Banks and savings and loan institutions Stop interest payments to savings accounts considered to be dormant accounts Are considered dormant she said when

considered Dor Mant one example she said was a Christ Mas club account of Mitch was depleted by after service charges were levied Flynn said there apparently were no state statutes or guidelines to define dormancy of savings accounts if this is the present state of the Law that lending institutions can arbitrarily determine when a savings account becomes dormant then the Public is really being
