County records reveal


officers deputized

*by Sona Iyengar
and Josephine Ballenger
County records indicate that eight
Department of Public Safety and
Security officers have been depu-
tized since August and September,
though University officials have
withheld this information from the
general public.

Ann Arbor City Council mem-
bers voted unanimously not to in-
stall parking meters on several resi-
dential streets last night.
"People who live in residential
neighborhoods... deserve to have
their living space respected without
having to pay a fee" for parking said
Councilmember Anne Marie Cole-
man (D-First Ward), one of the
sponsors of the resolution.
The resolution came in response
* to residents' protests to the installa-
tion of parking meters on several
streets north of Kerrytown. Resi-
dents of these streets, including
many University students, met with
Council members in several neigh-
borhood meetings to express anger
over the installation of the parking
meters, said Councilmember Larry
Hunter (D-First Ward), the other
*sponsor of the resolution.
Parking meter posts already in-
stalled on these streets will be re-
Streets which will not have park-
ing meters include:
Kingsley St. between N. Main
and Fourth Ave.,
Kingsley St. between Fourth
Ave. and Division (north side only),
Fifth Ave. between Kingsley
* St. and Detroit St., and
Ashley between Kingsley St.
and Catherine (west side only).
Parking meters will not be placed
on other residential streets as well.
Residential areas are defined as
any block where 85 percent of the
structures on the street are residential
homes or apartments. On streets
which are less than 85 percent resi-

and the remaining five were autho-
rized in September.
The cards show that Terry
Seames, Janet Jablonski, and Kevin
McNulty were deputized Aug. 31,
Joseph Anderson, Robert Neumann
and Timothy Shannon on Sept. 7,
and Charles Noffsinger and Thomas
Arreola received authorization Sept.
Once these cards are signed, the
officers are sworn police officers,
said Sheriff Ron Schebil. "Their
deputization is effective the moment

Officials silent since August;
student leaders not surprised

they sign it," Schebil said.
Though the University made no
official public statements on the of-
ficers' status, they have confirmed it
to the Daily.
Administrators have identified the
officers in training as "police" -
which requires state certification -
but have made no mention of their

authorization by the county sheriff.
Executive Director of University
Relations Walter Harrison said no
University policy existed to with-
hold information about the police of-
ficers. Harrison said it is "standard
procedure" to release information on
a new University office or depart-
ment a month before that entity be-

comes active. The University plans
to put the fleet in force Jan. 1.
Harrison said the names have not
been released in order to protect the
officers' privacy. "(I'd) prefer them
not to be personally targeted," he
Students, including anti-deputiza-
tion protesters, said the administra-
tion has behaved secretively during
the deputization process and criti-
cized the University's decision to au-
thorize the officers prior to their

"The University could easily have
said it publicly, but they didn't,"
said Engineering sophomore Bill
Cosnowski. "This act is a betrayal
to the students on this campus be-
cause the administration seemed to
have stated (the police) would be
trained before deputized," added
Cosnowski, a Michigan Student
Assembly Conservative Coalition

plane accident
Northwest planes brush wings
while taxiing; 20 are injured

ROMULUS, Mich. (AP) - A
jetliner apparently clipped another
while preparing to take off from the
Detroit airport in heavy fog
yesterday, igniting a fire that left one
plane in smoking ruins. At least
eight people were killed and 20 in-
jured, officials said.
It was not immediately clear what
caused the collision between a DC-9
and a Boeing 727-200, both operated
by Northwest Airlines. A spokesper-
son for air traffic controllers said the
DC-9 appeared to have become lost
on a slick, foggy taxiway and strayed
into the 727's path.
For nearly an hour after the acci-
dent, smoke billowed out of the

fuselage of the DC-9, where passen-
gers apparently became trapped by
the fast-moving fire. By the time
the fire was extinguished, much of
the plane's roof was open to the
overcast sky.
Officials had initially said that 19
people were killed, but Northwest
officials and Wayne County
Executive Edward McNamara later
said that was wrong.
McNamara said the medical ex-
aminer had "swept through the
wreckage twice and found nine bod-
ies," while Northwest spokesperson
Bob Gibbons said the coroner "told a
Northwest representative that there

Metropolitan Airport yesterday after it was struck by Boeing jet. Eight people have been confirmed dead.

Swain left satisfied with

final forum

by Tami Pollak
Daily Staff Reporter
Interim Vice President for
Student Services Mary Ann Swain
left last night's third and final forum
on campus safety on a satisfied note.
"I think they've done what I've
wanted them to do," Swain said
about the discussion she organized to
rectify her self-described lack of
communication with students.
Like the first two forums, the fo-
cus of the discussion quickly shifted
away from various campus safety is-
sues that Swain brought up - such
as the new drug and alcohol policy
- and turned to the decisions sur-
rounding the deputization of campus
security officers.

Only 40 people attended last
night's forum at the Michigan
League, a significantly smaller
turnout than the previous two fo-
rums. Almost all those in attendance
had been at a previous forum, accord-
ing to the show of hands Swain
asked for at the meeting's opening.
While many students attributed
the drop in attendance to the end of
the term's academic stress,
Engineering senior Morgan Glenn
offered another perspective on the si-
"I think people are pretty fed up
with this kind of a forum because
they think it's a farce," Glenn said.
"I haven't seen anything new men-

tioned in these forums."
Glenn added, "Mary Ann Swain
did not advertise these forums. I
don't think she wants 500 people
showing up to disagree with her
A large part of last night's dis-
cussion focused on the logistics of
the 12-member oversight committee
being formed to give faculty, staff,
and students a voice in the supervi-
sion of deputized officers.
Psychology Prof. Dr. Martin
Gold, one of only two faculty mem-
bers at the meeting, repeatedly asked
about exactly who the advisory board
would advise.

"As Vice President of Student
Services, campus security is not one
of your responsibilities," Gold told
Swain. "Campus security is not a
student service. Campus security is a
community service, and if I under-
stand this correctly, the reports (from
the oversight committee) should go
to (Director of Business Operations)
William Krumm. It would be help-
ful if William Krumm or someone
in that office also participated in this
kind of forum."
"The point is," Glenn later com-
mented, "that an. overview board
doesn't mean anything without the
power to make sanctions, and this
overview board won't have that



Pursell loses bid for third-
ranking House GOP post

Pursell, an eight-term representative
from Plymouth, Michigan was de-
feated yesterday by California Re-
publican Jerry Lewis in a bid for the
third-ranking House GOP post.
Pursell said his defeat resulted
largely from his colleagues' reluc-
tance to vote out an incumbent.
He challenged Lewis after joining
a revolt by conservative Republicans
against the tax and spending package
negotiated by President George Bush
and the bipartisan congressional
leadership this fall. Lewis supported
the package.
"The American people are look-
ing for clear, distinctive differences"
between the GOP and the
Democrats, Pursell said. He helped
draft an alternative budget proposal
in October that called for a spending
freeze and no new taxes and said he
would continue pushing those pro-
* posals as a member of the Appropri-
atinna Commitee

as chair of the National Republican
Congressional Committee.
Vander Jagt defeated a challenge
from Rep. Don Sundquist (R-Tenn.)
on a 98-66 vote during a closed-door
caucus of House Republicans.
Both offices are relatively un-
known outside the ranks of congres-
sional insiders and political profes-
sionals. But the races were viewed
widely as evidence of deep division
in a party that has not held majority
status in the House in 36 years.
"I would hope that ... we can all
put the pieces back together again
and move forward," said Ed Rollins,

sharp criticism from Sundquist and
his allies. They raised questions
about the campaign committee's fi-
nances and its effectiveness in view
of the House GOP's failure to gain
ground on the Democrats over the
past decade. Republicans lost a net
of eight seats in this year's election,
giving Democrats a 100-seat
"In Guy's case, he got a very
strong message from a lot of his
own supporters that there had to be
very dramatic change at the NRCC,"
said House GOP whip Newt
Gingrich, (R-Ga.).
Vander Jagt defended the commit-
