(AP) - The nation's military chief
yesterday advised ousted President
Jean-Bertrand Aristide to remain in
exile, defying international pressure
to restore Haiti's first freely
elected president.
"I personally do not believe it's
a good idea for Aristide" to return,
said Brig. Gen. Raoul Cedras, whom
Aristide has accused of leading
Monday's coup.
Cedras, the acting army com-
mander-in-chief, also accused
Aristide of ordering the execution
of a leading political opponent only
hours before fleeing the Caribbean
nation for Venezuela.
Speaking to reporters, Cedras de-
nied the military wants to retain
power in Haiti and reiterated his
claim that the army intervened be-
cause of Aristide's alleged abuses,
including the training of an elite
presidential guard to be under his
direct command.

ut of Haiti

He said the execution order of
Roger Lafontant was an example of
Aristide overstepping his authority.
Lafontant was a former leader of
the dread Tonton Macoute militia
that supported the Duvalier family
dictatorship for nearly 30 years un-
til 1986.
Lafontant was in the National
Penitentiary along with about 1,000
other prisoners, many of whom
were freed following this week's
coup. Cedras said Lafontant was as-
sassinated late Sunday or early
Monday by a soldier acting on or-
ders from Aristide.
Aristide flew yesterday to
Washington from Venezuela to
urge the Organization of American
States to take action to put him back
in power.
He called for an armed U.N.
force to return him to office, which
he held since a big election victory
in December. The U.N. Security
Council has so far refrained from

said he was "disinclined to use-

Also yesterday, the 12-nation
European Community suspended all
cooperation with Haiti, including a

Gates facing mounting

criticism from

Robert Gates' confirmation hear-
ings yesterday laid bare painful and
bitter division within the CIA,
with a former analyst accusing the
director-designate of "pros-
titution" of intelligence analysis.
Jennifer Glaudemans, in an emo-
tional appeal to the Senate Intelli-
gence Committee not to confirm
Gates, joined two other former
CIA analysts who accused Gates of
slanting intelligence to conform
with the anti-Soviet views of his
President Bush said "it seems
funny" that the critics are only
now coming forth.
"But I know Bob Gates and I
know he wouldn't slant an
estimate for some political
purpose," said Bush, a former CIA
director who named Gates his
deputy national security adviser in

Glaudemans said she was speak-
ing for many at the CIA who felt
very differently. So did Hal Ford,
the former director of the agency's
top analysis-writing body and a re-
spected intelligence veteran.
Ford, who reversed his initial
support of Gates in recent weeks,
said he received calls from 16 or 18
mid-level and senior officials cur-
rently or formerly at the CIA
telling him "you got it right; we
admire your courage." He said the
callers were from both the opera-
tions and analysis sides of the
"I do not believe I have ever
heard such a bitter cry for greater
integrity than I have recently com-
ing out of my colleagues" in the
Soviet analysis division, "who
hold the view that Mr. Gates and
his politicization has led to the
prostitution of Soviet analysis,"
she said.

Glaudemans described Gates as a
heavy-handed manager who
imposed his strongly held anti-
Soviet views on subordinates and
brooked no dissent.
Glaudemans said she was partic-
ularly disturbed that Gates pre-
vented any analysis that described a
declining Soviet Union. "I think it
is a pathetic shame that analysts
had this story to tell in 1985 and
1986, but could not get it out."
Gates' supporters agreed that a
perception exists among agency
analysts that they are expected to
skew their analyses to suit the
policy goals of the administration.
But they rejected accusations that
Gates was responsible.
Douglas Maceachin, currently a
special assistant on arms control
issues to the CIA director, said
Gates was critical of analysts for
sloppy or poor work.
"There is no question that his

efforts made our product,
corporately, a better one," said
Maceachin, who served as the chief
of the Soviet analysis division
under Gates in the mid 1980s.
Maceachin took issue with some
of the most damaging criticisms of
Gates, especially that he dictated
the essence of a 1985 memo that
concluded the Soviet Union was
behind the 1981 assassination
attempt against Pope John Paul II.
The paper has been the subject of
heated debate, and at least one of its
authors is among the people being
considered as additional witnesses.

Frustration mixed with hope
characterized the response within
the Law School to the news that it
has once again been placed on a na-
tional Hispanic organization's
"Dirty Dozen" list.
The list, released annually by the
National Hispanic Bar Association,
is reserved for law schools with
disproportionately few Hispanic
The University is one of eight
schools spending its second year in a
row on the list.
Third-year law student Pedro
Ramos, who chairs the faculty hir-
ing committee of the Hispanic Law
Students Association (HLSA), said
the University belongs on the list.
"Michigan has earned its place in
the Dirty Dozen ... No Latino has
ever held any kind of full-time
teaching position at the Law
School," he said. "I think that not
having any Latinos on the faculty is
a result of the school's not trying
hard enough."
Law School Dean Lee Bollinger
agreed that the lack of Hispanic fac-
ulty, and minority faculty in gen-
eral, is a problem, but said it was
not for lack of effort on the part of
the University.
"The problem, of course, is seri-
ous, and finding minorities of all
kinds to apply for faculty positions
is something we've worked on very
hard over the past decade or so.
We're frustrated," he said.
Bollinger said that of about 45

professors at the Law School, two
are Black, and none are Hispanic,
Asian or Native American.
Juan Torres, also a third-year
Law Student and the current chair of
HSLA, said the lack of Hispanic
faculty is a problem, but added he
remains optimistic for the future.
"This coming semester there
will be a visiting professor who is
Hispanic," he said. "I'm happy that

the University brought someone,
but there's still work to be done,
and this list is an example of that,"
he said.
Torres said agitation from
groups like HLSA has caused the
Law School to become more recep-
tive to the special problems in hir-
ing Hispanic professors.
"Most of the people who teach
at Michigan Law School have gone
to the right schools, have done the
right thing at these schools, have
gone on to clerk for the right
judges," Torres said.

CBS tour to put 'U'
students in spotlight

Tired of the same boring sched-
ule? How about broadcasting the

to view excerpts from upcoming
The CBS College Tour, featuring
Jeff Phillips of Guiding Light, will
entertain students on Palmer Field
today from noon until 6:00 p.m. and
tomorrow from 10:00 a.m. until
4:00 p.m. .
The tour will consist of four 600
-foot tents, each with two interac-
tive events based on CBS Television
Network programs.
"We recognize that there is a lot
of interest in daytime television on
college campuses," said CBS mar-
keting consultant Jim Byrne. "The
purpose of the tour is basically, as a
network, to reach out to the stu-
dents, to provide entertainment and
Jeff Phillips, who plays Hart
Jessup on Guiding Light, will auto-
graph CBS Daytime calendars given
to all students attending the event.
In addition, he will perform scenes
from soaps with the students and
participate in games such as The
Price is Right and Family Feud.

The tour has been organized
through the University Activities
Center (UAC).
"Students get a lot out of it be-
cause they get a break from the day-
by-day schedules," said LSA junior
Wendy Shanker, head of special
events for UAC. "It is pure fun and
that is what it is meant to be."
Shanker said University officials
attempted to deny the request for
the event last Thursday.
"The University is not very
gung-ho about the program:because
of its commercial nature. The prob-

Kelley: Residency rules

LANSING (AP) - Universities

Kelley said in an opinion released
Kelley said it was legitimate for
a state university to advise an appli-
cant that he or she could acquire in-
state residence status if he or she
worked full time for 12 months in
Michigan while attending school
part time.
The Constitution "authorizes

"The state can establish such rea-

residents of the state, but who have
come there solely for educational
purposes, cannot take advantage, of
the in-state rates," the court wrOte.
Out-of-state tuition is usually
much higher, sometimes triple- the
rate Michigan residents pay.
Kelley said students would have
to provide clear proof that they had
acquired residency, such as evidence
that the student stayed in Michigan
