S. Arican President accepts
ANC delegation for dialogue

JOHANNESBURG, South Africa
(AP) - President F. W. de Klerk
accepted a proposal by the African
National Congress yesterday to send
a delegation for the first formal talks
between the white government and
its foremost adversary.
The ANC's commitment to dia-
logue "is a positive step," reflecting
a desire to "search for solutions
through peaceful means," said de
Klerk, who lifted a 30-year ban on
the guerrilla movement three weeks
ago.
De Klerk also made his first pub-
lic statement on controversy involv-
ing Defense Minister Magnus
Malan, who has been linked in press
reports to a secret military unit that
allegedly assassinated anti-apartheid
activists.
The president, interviewed by the
state-run TV network, said the alle-
gations would be thoroughly investi-
gated by a judicial commission,

outside Lorch Hall.

criticized the press for conducting a
"trial by media," and praised the role
of the security forces in saving South
Africa from "anarchy and chaos."
Opposition political leaders de-
manded Malan's resignation and
urged de Klerk to ensure that no
cover-up takes place.
Malan, in statements this week,
denied having ordered assassina-
tions, but did not rule out the possi-
bility the unit may have committed
such acts. He pledged the military
would not interfere with any investi-
gations.
The Star newspaper of Johannes-
burg quoted sources as saying Malan
had been aware of the unit at least
since 1987.
Police investigators have said in
court papers that members of the
unit, called the Civil Cooperation
Bureau, are suspected of involve-
ment in the assassinations last year

"I think we're very lucky to have
her here."
According to Dhaenens, her own
coaching status for the following
season is "still tentative." Also,
Youde Wang, last season's other
assistant, will not return to Mich-
igan next year. Wang received a non-
volleyball related research role at the

ACC volleyball Coach of the

Year takes

by Ryan Schreiber
Daily Sports Writer
The University of Michigan
Athletic Department named Peggy
Bradley-Doppes as the women's
volleyball coach for the 1990-91
season Wednesday.
Bradley-Doppes, 32, was form-
erly head coach at the University of
North Carolina, where she compiled
a 140-77 record. In addition to earn-
ing honors in 1989 as the Atlantic
Coast Conference Coach of the Year,
she engineered the Tarheels' 1988.
ACC championship and earned

NCAA tournament bids in 1988 and
1989.
Previous to her coaching stint at
North Carolina, Bradley-Doppes
compiled an impressive 160-67
record as coach at Miami of Ohio.
"She's a proven coach both at
Miami of Ohio and North Carolina,"
said Phyllis Ocker, Associate Dir-
ector in charge of women's athletics.
"Both institutions are fine educa-
tional programs and I think she
would understand the requirements of
student-athletes here."
Besides her volleyball experience

as a collegiate head coach, Bradley-
Doppes has worked at other levels of
competition as well.
"She's involved with the Olym-
pic program and the United States
Volleyball Association," Ocker said.
"She's a winner and she'll be an
outstanding addition to our pro-
gram."
Bradley-Doppes already h-
number of goals for her rook
on as the Michigan coach.
"My first goal is to establish
some type of spring practice and
work on recruiting for next season,"

Bradley-Doppes said. "I want to set a
strong foundation for the volleyball
program for years to come."
While there were no extenuating
circumstances for her departure from
North Carolina, Bradley-Doppes cit-
ed three major reasons for her switch
to Michigan volleyball.
"I've been very successful and
happy here and there are only a few
schools in the country that I could
leave UNC for," she said. "Michigan
was one of those schools.
"I decided to come to Michigan
for three reasons. First is the

strength and recognition of the Big
Ten conference. Second is the natio-
nal and international prominence of
Michigan in academics and athletics.
I want to tap into that resource. And
finally is that it is an ideal situation.
The setting is going to be suc-
cessful."
New assistant coach Jennifer
Dhaenens is looking forward to a
successful squad run by Bradley-
Doppes.
"I'm very excited about her com-
ing here," Dhaenens said. "I think
she's going to do wonderful things

Speech kicks off Robert
Hayden conference

by Tim Gammons
University alumnus and award-winning
Black poet Robert Hayden helped to "build,
shape, and determine the texture of African
American culture" University of Iowa Profes-
sor Darwin Turner said yesterday in the open-
ing of a four-day conference on the poet.
The conference, titled "Words in the Mourn-
ing Time," commemorates the 10th anniver-
sary of Hayden's death.
Turner said Hayden's relative invisibility
during the 1950s was directly attributed to the
fact that "neither white scholars nor publishers
considered Black poets marketable."
The subsequent turmoil of the 60s, said
Turner, created a market for "young (Black)
writers who proposed to use their work as lit-
erary weapons (in the struggle for racial equal-
ity)." Turner said Hayden lamented the notion
that many believed Black poetry "had to have a
message, to preach" often at the expense of art.
Hayden's criticism of the younger poets

caused controversy within the Black literary
community and according to Turner, "some
young Black writers charged that Hayden was
not sufficiently Black."
Turner, however, defended Hayden as a
"Black human being who needed no slogans or
signboards to assert his Blackness," referring to
many of his poems that "denounced economic
oppression and racism." Turner said Hayden
was simply "tired of having our work inter-
preted in a social and political context" instead
of appreciated for its lyric and song.
Turner stressed Hayden's love of the rhythm
of poetry and its structural artistry, emphasiz-
ing that Hayden's poetry, whatever the subject
matter, never ceases to "reflect his love and
compassion for not only all of mankind but for
all creatures big and small."
Hayden won the Grand Prize of Poetry at
the First World Festival of Negro Arts at
Dakar in 1966, and See HAYDEN, Page 5

Baker cautious
over elections
WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of State James
Baker III said yesterday that even if international ob-
servers find the Nicaraguan government wins Sunday's
elections fairly the Sandinistas will have to show "a
substantial period of good behavior" before there can be
normal relations with the United States.
He also said the Bush administration reserves the
right to decide on its own if the election is fair.
Baker, appearing before the House Foreign Affairs
Committee, said the administration would insist on pe-
riod of good behavior including an end to support for
leftist insurgents in neighboring El Salvador and recon-
ciliation with domestic political opponents, before end-
ing economic sanctions and restoring full diplomatic re-
lations.
The secretary accused the government of President
Daniel Ortega of intimidating opponents and poll
watchers besides denying visas to congressional ob-
servers.
The leading opposition group - the United National
Opposition, headed by Violeta Chamorro - has re-
ceived U.S. aid in its bid to govern the country.
Baker said that the United States is "prepared to rec-
ognize a government that wins a free election." Then he
set conditions that must be met for the restoration of
normal relations and asserted U.S. authority to judge
the elections.
Observer groups, including one led by former Presi-
dent Carter and another sponsored by the United Na-
tions, will assess the election and "arrive at reasoned
judgments" about its fairness, the secretary said. "But,
in light of experience, the United States needs to make
its own judgment."

.Sen. Durenberger to be
investigated for actions

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Senate
Ethics Committee said yesterday it would
begin a trial-like hearing on Sen. David
Durenberger (R-Minnesota) because of
"substantial credible evidence" that he vio-
lated Senate rules and federal law.
Most of the allegations concern a book-
promotion arrangement under which Duren-
berger made speeches and accepted fees to
promote two books he wrote.

Failed to report on his financial dis-
closure forms "the acceptance of reimburse-
ment" for travel undertaken in connection
with the book publishing deal.

paign contribution to personal use, and vio-

and deposit the contribution.
