Administrators reassigned By ll«kJ Sltauoaho- Two NAU vice presidents have requested job reassignments within the university, as the administrative structure undergoes reorganization. Administration Services Vice President E . Harlin Staires will teach education courses, while Finanical Affairs Vice President Laverne R. Pitcher will act as a financial consultant to tht university. Staires said he requestrd reassignment so he could resume teaching. "After more than lS years in public school and higher education administration, it is my desire to get back into the classroom and I have some I I years to give in a teaching role. __ " Staires said in a prepared statement. Staires will be teaching school law tor teachers, school finance and introduction to education. Pitcher said his reassignment request was based on a mutual agreement with NAU President Eugene M. Hughes. Both agreed that an administrative change benefits with new individuals, Pitcher said. "I did not feel it was best when the university has three op;:nings for vice presidents to have someone around who has been here as long as I have," Pitcher said. The 21-year NAU administrator is looking forward to an early retirement. However, he said his eventual retirement will not break his ties with the university. "As far as I'm concerned, my association with NAU does not stop when I retire," he said. Pitcher will be 62 on Nov . 29. Hughes agreed that Pitcher 's reassignment request partly was due to a university committee 's recomm<ndations for adminjstrativc restructuring. "Based on Pitcher's analysis of whattht committee was recommending-- tht fact wt. would be rrdudng the number of viet presidents from five to four and bringing in at least three new vice presid<nts-- he fell it was in the best interest of the university for him to ask for reassignment," Hughes said . The universi ty commiu~ was responsible for reviewing the current administrative structurr and rerommending a proposed change to be implernentrd in tht near future, said Hughes . Recommtndations establ ished vice presidencies for university · relations and development, administration and finance, and student strvices . Hughes said the only offices firmly established before the committee's recommendations were tho;e of the president and academic vice president. Vice presidential responsibilities were established by the committee and subsequent discussions with himself, Hughes said. "What we have tried to do is look at the functional areas of respoosi bility on campus and pull together what we feel are appropriate areas for vice presidents," he said. Responsibilities of the univrrsity relations and development vice president include public relations and information, alumni relations, grants and fund raising, publication center, conferences and special events, states an advertisement in the 'The Chrontcle for Hightr Education.' The ad ministration and finance vice president will managt tht budg<t office. business manag<r. affirmative action officer, ph ysical plant, personnel office, purchasing, uni-ersity security, awdliary services, computer center , managmtnt information services and institutional studies.

Clubs plan Earth Day celebration By Roa Sralth Solar cook-<>uts, a mobile exhibit sponsored by the NAU Solar Club and a national recycling contest sponsorrd by People Assembled for a Clean Environment, are some of the activities planned to crlebrate Earth Day 1980 in Flagstaff. An organizational meeting to discuss the specifics of these events will be conductrd tonight at 7:30 in the second floor lobby of the Public and Environmental Service Building on south campus. Evtryone is welcome. These events will be conducted Tuesday, April 22 as part of the national Earth Day. President Carter recentl~ proclaimrd that day as Earth Day 1980, marking the lOth anniversary of the event. Earth DaJ Symbol In making the proclamation, Carter messed the need to place special attention on "oommunitr activities and educational efforts directrd to protecting and enhancing our lifegiving environment." The original Earth Day was organized mostly by college students 10 years ago as a result of the intense social and political activism of the period, Byron Kennard said in a recent Eanb Day newsletter. Kennard is the chairman of the EartH Day 1980 Board of Directors. This Eanh Day has a special significance to it, said regional coordinator Janet Schnorr . "Due 10 the recent energy shortagt, society has let the environmental issues slide to get more energy,'' she said. "For examplt, the energy mobilization board was created to cut through existing environmental laws, just to get more energy," the NAU professor said. "People art more worried about their standard of living than protecting the environment/' Schnorr said. "And, traaes fallacious because we waste •~ percent of the enerJY we use_ "Other countries have tbe same standard of living as us and only UK half the eaergy we do," she said. "In tllr past, eneru has been so cheap that we haven't looked into efficiency fiiCton in our machines. "Earth day is intended to be a recommitment of tbae ideas and concuns," Sdlnorr said_ "We Deed to mniad people of the im~ of pro«Cdilll the anb." Jolui 'Heywood, stlldatt coordiaator fiODI PACE, acreed. "This year marks a recommitment to Cll wir01liiiCIIIal cooams,'' he said. "The moo;eJIIellt clidn 't die in the '70s." Heywood said one problem they face is public acttptaaOr. "lt's not as popular anymore, but the diehards are still here,'' he said. lly Carrie Header Every other Friday, two long lines form on the first floor of the Administration Building. The panicipants of this biweekly ritual are NAU students picking up their pa~checks . Next semester there may be fewer students standing in those lines. The national federal work-study budget has been cut in President Carter's fiscal l980-l!l buJ~et. s•id '-hn F. Shipley <•u dent finatlctal a1ds director . NAU .,.;11 not be heavily affected by this, Shiple~ said, although campus work-study will be cut by 10 percent. This means that fewer students will get a piece of the pie, Shipley said. NAU currently contributes Sl73,!:ro to the work-study budget, while the frderal government contributes 5700,000. Staning in July, the work-study cut will take the budget from $873,000 to SSOS,!:ro, Shipley said . Considering that the majority of students "orking on campus receive less than minimum wage, one may wonder why there are so many. HWorkjng on campus is convenimt/' said Shiplty. "We are very fleltible with workstudy." Students can arrange their work hours around classes. If they have to study for an exam or nerd time off for som<thing, it usually can be arranged, he said. Working off campus, although providing a bigger paycheck, is usually more demanding on a student's time, Shiple~ addrd. Most work-study and student wage students stan at S2.64 per hour. After a year the wage is usuall~ raised a dime, said Shipley . The current minimum wage is S3 .10 per hour. Work-study and student wage jobs include working for the campus food service, typing and clerical work for various offices and library work. ad• anlages of working on campus," satd Janet C.

"The governor felt she (Marler) could best represent the students at NAU and the other univ~sities," satd Chris Hamel, special assistant to the governor_ Hamel said Babbitt was in Flagstaff last week and interviewrd all the candidates. "The governor was impressed with Ren~'s answers and she came highly recommendrd b~ faculty, students and people in the local community," Hamel said. Marler, 20, a political science major and economics mjnor, said she wasn't surprised about gelling the position . " Babbill told me in my interview with him that his aides had ranlcrd me number one among the candidates," said Marler. Marler's appointment will go before the Senate Education Commillee next 'Aetk for ratification. Marler said gelling the position "in one sense is a rrlief, in another sense it isn't because you ha•e to start thinking about the " ork that needs to be done." Marltr said she was hoping to hold a forum at NAU to get student's vie..,s before b~ first official meeting in May, but because she doesn't get installed until Ma~ 15 and I be regent's meeting is after school lets out , she wil wait until the fall and hold forums at all three universities. Marler said her contacts in student government al the three univtrsities will be a major resourct in finding out student's needs and opinions.
