'U': Engler
cut to hurt
by Stefanie Vines
Daily Government Reporter
Gov. John Engler's veto of the King/Chavez/Parks
* minority faculty program from the state higher educa-
tion budget came as a surprise to University adminis-
"We had no expectation that this program would be
cut and we will greatly feel its loss," said Associate
Vice President for Academic Affairs Robert
The program brought minority professors to the
University as guest lecturers. Several of the visiting
professors were subsequently hired by the University
as permanent faculty members.
* The state paid $90,000, half of the program's total
cost, while the University paid the remainder. Engler
used his line-item veto to block the spending for this
"I think the program was one of the most success-
ful here," said Vice Provost for Minority Affairs
Charles Moody. "It allowed all students to have role
models and to have interaction with faculty members
of color."
Moody has overseen the program for four years,
* during which time 200 professors came to the
University, he said.
Holbrook said the cut leaves the University in a dif-
ficult position.
"We are going to try to keep all of the commit-
ments we currently have with visiting professors, but
we don't know the status of their position here or the
funding available now because of the cut," he said.
John Truscott, Engler's press secretary, said the the
program was not needed.
"This was a worthwhile program, but it was not

Police arrest 'U'





by MelissaRPeerless
Daily Crime Reporter
LSA sophomore Virgil Burton was ar-
rested yesterday in connection with the Sept.
15 shooting of a student outside of an Eastern
Michigan University residence hail.
Three EMU police officers, one officer of
the University Department of Public Safety
and Security and one Michigan State Police of-
ficer arrested Burton in his room in Couzens
residence hall at about 2:45 p.m. yesterday,
said University Director of News and
Information Services Joseph Owsley.
Burton is to be charged with assault with
intent to commit murder and possession of a
firearm in commission of a felony, said
Kathleen Tinney, assistant vice president at
Tinney said police had been considering
Burton as a suspect since the incident occurred,
but did not have enough evidence to arrest him
until yesterday.
"He'd been a suspect since the beginning of
the investigation, which involved questioning
a number of people who were present at the
incident," she said.
Burton allegedly shot an EMU first-year
student in the head during a fight which oc-
curred after a fraternity party.
The party - which was given by the Kappa
Alpha Psi fraternity - took place at the
Bowen Field House, EMU's basketball arena.
Police denied approximately 300 people

admittance to the arena, which was already
filled to its capacity of 600. At about mid-
night, the students became angry at being ex-
cluded and started fighting, police said.
Three EMU police officers were also in-
jured in the incident.
The police dispersed the crowd and ended

the party at 12:30 a.m., an hour-and-a-half ear-
lier than originally planned.
As officers returned to the station - at
about 1:30 a.m. - they were called to Sellers
residence hall where they found the victim.
They reported seeing three suspects escape in a
black car.
Police believe the fight leading to the
shooting began at the fraternity party earlier
that evening.
However, they also speculate that Burton
knew his alleged victim from high school.
Burton spent last night in Washtenaw
County Jail and was scheduled to be arraigned
this morning at 9 a.m.
At the arraignment, the date for a prelimi-
nary trial will be set and formal charges will
be presented.

Students question role in search

by Bethany Robertson
and Henry Goldblatt
Daily Administration Reporters
Many students think their input
should play an important part in
University decisions, but with more,
than 34,000 students on campus,
finding a way to represent their
views is a controversial process.
The University administration
has expressed the goal of incorpo-
rating student perspectives in the
search for a new vice president for
Student Services over the past sev-
eral months. But some students
question the process used through-
out the search.

An initial committee - com-
prising three students and nine fac-
ulty and staff members - selected
three candidates from all the appli-
cants. Last week, several people on
campus, including a group of 14 stu-
dent leaders hand-picked by the ad-
ministration, were given the chance
to interview the candidates and
make personal recommendations to
University President James Duder-
Juliette Cherbeuliez, the presi-
dent of Mortar Board, the senior
honor society, said she thinks the
system for choosing students is
flawed. The 14 students chosen to

One VP candidate identified

by Henry Goldblatt
Daily Administration Reporter
Last night, a participant in the in-
terview process for the University
vice president for Student Services
identified Maureen Anderson, vice
provost for Student Affairs at
Washington State University, as one
of the three candidates being consid-
ered for the position.
None of the candidates hold
positions within the University.
A source at the Washington
State Evergreen said Anderson is
also looking at student services
posts at Stanford University and
perhaps at other universities.

The candidate who is selected
will replace Interim Vice President
for Student Services Mary Ann
Swain, who has held the position
since January 1990 in addition to her
post as associate vice president for
Academic Affairs.
University administrators origi-
nally combined the two positions to
study ways academic affairs could
be more closely tied to student life
outside class.
Administrators decided to keep
the two posts separate and Swain
opted to retain her Academic
Affairs position.


'U' reach agreement

U.N. says

A senior U.N. diplomat has re-
ported that American hostage Jesse
Turner has been released in Beirut, a
U.N. spokeswoman said yesterday
Secretary-general Javier Perez
de Cuellar was informed by his as-
sistant, Giandomenico Picco, that
Turner was released "and we un-
derstand that he is on his way to
Damascus," said the spokeswoman,
Nadia Younes.

Months after city officials ques-
tioned the cost of providing police
services to the University, the Uni-
versity has cut about $50,000 from
its projected bill by halving the
number of city officers on campus
halfway through the 1991-92 fiscal
The City Council approved an
agreement last night, in which the
University will pay less and receive
less police services.
Under the contract, the Univer-
sity will pay the city $407,000, ex-
cluding overtime payment for such
events as football games and
City Administrator Alfred
Gatta said he expects the total bill

to be $507,000.
Last year, the University paid a
total of about $552,000, Gatta said.
The city in turn will provide
seven patrol officers until Dec. 30,
and then decrease the number to
three until June 30, 1992.
It will also provide one detec-
tive from July 1 to Aug. 31 - but
because that date has already passed,
the contract will only apply
retroactively in terms of billing.
The city previously provided
seven full-time officers and two de-
The council tabled the contract
in July, after council members com-
plained it did not account for indi-
rect overhead costs.
The contract passed last night al-

lots $62,748 under this category.
Mayor Liz Brater said she still
does not feel the city is being fully
reimbursed under the contract the
council approved last night.
But Councilmember Bob Grady
(D-3rd Ward) said that despite
doubts of exact costs, the council
had already too much time with the
"You have to have an agreement
eventually. You can't just keep go-
ing back with questions of indirect
overhead," he said.
Brater initiated an amendment,
which the council approved, to di-
rect the city to meet with the Uni-
versity early next year in order to
discuss their services and analyze
