County supervisors question
personal motives of sheriff
By JIM HECK
In unprecedented style, a special committee 'of the County
Board of Supervisors yesterday publicly asked Sheriff Douglas
Harvey if he had "diverted any public money" to his personal
'Harvey immediately replied, "No." C
In ~the past the committee has not questioned Harvey's
personal motives but inquired only about the management -
practices of his office.
Committee chairman Supervisor Neal Mast (R-Scio) said
the question was posed to Harvey because it is "the obvious
question in the mninds of the public and the one which can i
clear the sheriff prior to the election."
Mast~ also said Harvey's replies to two brevious sets of

In the relaxed atmosphere of
a Michigan Union lounge, a
small group of University stu-
N dents talked by a- fireside -
N used presumably for effect -
with their University president
"Just what is the role of the
President?" asked one student.
'Are our faculty leaving at such
a great rate?" inquired another.
And so on, droning through a
wide range of topics.
President Fleming, with his
easy off-the-cuff style, fielded

into a confrontation. Relaxed,
quiet chatter characterized the
Fleming took great pains, for
example, to explain the work-
ings of the high-level decision-
making process of the Univer-
sity's administration to a stu-
dent who felt the whole opera-
tion was extraneous to her aca-
demic life here. -
"I don't make any decisions
alone," Fleming answered he,

Fleming described his week-
any questions which they might
have concerning our request."
Scattered in and about the
topic of the President's j o b
came questions on many prob-
lems facing the University which
students were concerned with.
'I have heard the University
is losing faculty at a great rate,"
piped up a voice from the back,
"Is it true?"
"Not much more than we us-
ually lose," was the reassur'ing
answer. "We lose some every
year' for many reasons, as does
every other school."
"Do you think the University
should institute a program for

than in a dorm."

kulle, '72. The Couzens Hall resi-
dent added more strong rationale
for off-campus privileges. "I don't
like dorm life at all."
A junior who lives in Barbour
offered her simple appraisal of the
current sophomores: "Sophomore
girls are mature enough to live
outside of the dorms."
Dormitory food was the prime
factor in a frepshman's opposition
to i'equired dorm residenqe. "I
don't like living in the dorm," said
the Bursley woman simply, "be-
cause the food is crummy."
Most of the housemothers ques-
tioned were not acquainted with
the board's action, but te few
that were reacted favorably.
