Murder probe continues as students seek safety

lies in making students aware of effec-
tive protection measures. Beginning
y, MSA members will distribute
ers on the Diag that describe the cir-
cumstances surrounding Sunday's
murder, point out particularly
"dangerous" areas on, campus, and
suggest extra precautions students can
take to avoid becoming victims.
"Awareness to these things has to hap-
pen;" MSA President Marc Breakstone
said yesterday. "That is the most
tangible immediate course of action we
n take. Breakstone said he will meet
ith Ann Arbor Police Chief William
Corbett tomorrow to discuss the issue of
campus security. In addition, an MSA
committee, being organzied by MSA
member Bruce Brumburg, will attempt
to, "look into measures that can in-
crease student awareness" of security
mveasures they can take.
Office of Student Services: Vice-
President for Student Services Henry
Johnson has called for a noon meeting

today with representatives from several
campus groups to "try to sit down and
develop some strategies." The groups
include MSA, University Security, On-
and Off-Campus Housing, the Affir-
mative Action Office, the Pan-Hellenic
Association, and the Fraternity Coor-
dinating Council: "I discussed this idea
with the executive officers this mor-
ning," Johnson said yesterday, "and
they said to go ahead and see what we
can come up with." He said the group
will discuss ways to "better inform
students and help counteract their
fears."
University Credit Union: What would
a credit union be doing trying to stop
crime? For the last several months,;
employee Chet Pawloski said he has
had a large box filled with small plastic
whistles that are intended to be used in;
the case of an attack. Yesterday, he,
brought the box out, andedistributed
hundreds of whistles to area residents.,
"I thought this would be a good time to
give them out," he said.-

University Security: "It would be
nice to say that we're going to put 30 or
40 people on overtime," director Walter
Stevens said yesterday, "but we just
don't have that many people." He ad-
ded that even if the security force was
large enough, "we don't have any
avenues for them to check out." (None
of the three recent killings have oc-
curred near campus.) Stevens said that
his department is working closely with
Ann Arbor police, "talking to
everybody, and trying to keep people
informed." Extra security personnel
might be added, according to Stevens,
"if this continues, God forbid, and
problems occur closer to campus. We
will constantly reevaluate our respon-
sibility."
Walden Hills Apartments (the site
where Rebecca Huff was slain early
Sunday morning): Residents of this
usually-quiet neighborhood held a
stormy meeting Monday night with two
Ann Arbor police detectives (including
Lt. Heath), complaining about deficient
lighting, private security forces, and

police patrols. "Everybody is really
kind of shocked by the viciousness of
the crime," said Dan Champion,
manager of the property management
and sales at the apartment complex.
"The women are asking, 'What can we
do?"' During the meeting, the detec-
tives recommended several safety
measures for residents, including in-
creased awareness of their neighbors'
schedules so unusual occurrances may
be detected more quickly. "They
realize the chances of this recurring
here are minimal," Champion said,
"but there are efforts being made." Lt.
Heath, who endured a lengthy
diatribe by several residents, said the
meeting was "productive in the end. I
can understand why they were up in
arms.'
Washtenaw Sheriff's Department:
Although this office has not yet been
formally asked to join city police inthe
investigation, Sheriff Tom Minick
acknowleged that he has met with Chief
Corbett, who "asked that we be aware
of certain specifics involved with the
crime." He said the sheriff's depar-
tment is "working on a day-to-day
cooperative effort" with the Ann Arbor
police and sharing whatever infor-
mation is needed by its detectives. Also,

a confidential telephone line has been
established by the department for
citizens with any possible leads. The
number is 973-7711.
Women's Crisis Center: Although this
organization is engaged in an ongoing
campaign to prevent attacks on area

women, the last few days have been
unusually hectic. According to
spokeswoman Lily Jarman, "We've
received a number of calls from
women-and men-concerned with-how
they can better protect themselves,and
what we can advise that they do to
make themselves safer."

"'aculty group says evaluations optional

By ADRIENNE LYONS
A University faculty group took steps
Monday to ensure that faculty mem-
bers will not be penalized if they refuse
to participate in college-or department-
run student course evaluations.
The University Senate Assembly
" verwhelmingly passed three "very
narrow resolutions regarding course
evaluations, said Engineering Prof.
Arch Naylor, who is the chairman of the
Senate Advisory Committee on Univer-
sity Affairs.
THE ASSEMBLY also decided to
refer a proposed amendment, which
would stress faculty approval of
evaluations, to a committee for further
discussion. The proposed amendment,
offered by Education Prof. Loren
4arritt, noted that the other resolutions
re not "intended to suggest that
faculty members should avoid student
evaluations of their teaching," and em-
phasized that "evaluations can be help-
fuland ._.. are an appropriate source of
info'jnation about a faculty member's
teaching competence."
Naylor also stressed that the
resolutions are not intended to put a
damper on any efforts-whether from
epartments or students-to offer
valuations.
Rather, he noted, "They (the
resolutions) are meant to avoid a
situation where a faculty member
chooses not to become involved in a
particular (course evalation) system.
It ' Ionly ha t"owith- that'

aspect-we're trying not to discourage
student evaluations," Naylor said.
Specifically, the resolutions:
" insist that academic units cannot
require evaluations without the instruc-
tor's permission;
" require the "explicit consent" of a
department or college's governing
faculty to offer evaluations;

* call for "explicit" policies regar-
ding information derived from
evaluations.
NAYLOR EXPLAINED that faculty
members who fail to participate in
evaluations could face "judgments" by
colleagues who might question the
teaching skills of an instructor who
refuses to offer evaluations.
