"I think there is an illusion on
campus that students leaders repre-
sent the student voice," Cherbeuliez
said. She suggested that a random se-
lection of students would provide a
broader sample of student opinions.
Cherbeuliez was also concerned
that the candidates picked by the
original committee were chosen
from an administrative point of
view rather than from the perspec-
tye of students' needs.
"I think the advisory committee
probably did a very good good job of
meeting the president's needs in
finding three, not-off-the-wall suit-
able candidates," she said. "I happen
to think a good candidate for the
vice president of Student Services is
somebody who is a representative of

Katie Kendell, president of the
Pan Hellenic Council, said she was
pleased at the administration's ef-
forts to include student input in the
"I appreciated being consulted
and having a chance to meet the can-
didates," Kendell said.
Other students agreed there was
adequate student input in the search
"(The search) was handled very
fairly. It was handled well because
students were involved in every
process of the search," said Univer-
sity Activities Center representa-
tive Joe Merendino. "It would have
been nice if more students could
have been involved."
Chuck Han, a member of MSA's
Minority Affairs Committee, said
that although she is glad Black stu-
dents were consulted, "It would
have been nice for more minority
groups to have been involved."
The search process has been con-
ducted in secret and administrators
have refused to disclose the final-
Duderstadt said he felt a private
search process was justified because
a public process would limit the
field of candidates.
"I don't believe any University
can get any good candidates in a pub-
lic process. It would cripple the
University and other institutions,"
Duderstadt said in an interview ear-
lier this month.
Booth Newspapers, the Ann Ar-
bor News' parent company, is suing
the University for violating the
Open Meetings Act when it con-
cealed the names of the finalists in
the 1988 University presidential
search which finally named
The judge has not handed down a
decision in the case, which was ar-
gued before the Michigan State
Court of Appeals last March.
University General Counsel Elsa
Cole said if Booth wins the suit, the
court may instruct the University
to hold informal public hearings or
release certain documents.
Duderstadt said he did not think
the University should release the
candidates' names for the post.
After reviewing the recommen-
dations of the original search com-
mittee and the students and admin-
istrators who interviewed the can-
didates, Duderstadt is expected to
make a final decision on the student

Lenders turn down minorities
more than whites, study shows
WASHINGTON (AP) -
Lenders turn down Blacks and His-
panics for home loans much more
often than whites and Asian-Ameri-
cans, no matter what their income,
federal regulators said yesterday.
Last year, money-lending insti-
tutions rejected 33.9 percent of ap-
plications for conventional mort-
gages from Blacks, 21.4 percent
from Hispanics and 22.4 percent
from American Indians. Rejection
rates were just 14.4 percent for
whites and 12.9 percent for Asian-
Federal Reserve Gov. John
LaWare said the figures, compiled
from 6.4 million loan applications
submitted to 9,300 lenders, were
"worrisome data, but I'm not pre-
pared to say there's discrimination
until we get further into it."
He called for follow-up exami-
nations of selected lenders to find
out why they are rejecting minority
The rejection rates do not take
into account such factors as appli-
cants' credit and employment histo-
ries, and current debt loads.
Chris Lewis of the Association
of Community Organizations for
Reform Now, ACORN, said thy
figures were "not only an indict-
ment of the banking system but a
testament to the inadequacy of regu-
latory efforts to eliminate mort-
Rep. Henry B. Gonzalez (D-
Texas) chair of the House Banking
Committee, called on President
Bush to hold a White House summit
meeting of community groups, civil
rights organizations and local gov-
ernment officials to devise a strat-
egy for dealing with the issue.
"We are very concerned about
these statistics," said Rob Dugger,
chief economist of the American
The rejection patterns were simi-
lar when applicants were grouped
by income level. Among low-in-
come applicants, 40.1 percent of
Blacks were rejected, 31.1 percent of
Hispanics, 17.2 percent of Asians
and 23.1 percent of whites.
In the highest income group, the
denial rates were 21.4 percent for
Blacks, 15.8 percent for Hispanics,
11.2 percent for Asians and 8.5 per-
cent for whites.
The study found no significant
difference in rejection rates by gen-
der, with 19.9 percent of conven-
tional applications from women re-
jected and 20 percent from men. The
denial rate for couples was 14.2 per-
In 19 large cities examined,
Boston had the highest rejection rate
for Blacks, 34.9 percent, and Wash-
ington, D.C., the lowest, 14.4 per-
cent. Houston had the highest rejec-
tion rate for Hispanics, 25.7 percent,
and Minneapolis the lowest, 8 per-

Councilmembers expressed ap-
preciation for the efforts of the
Greek community, noting that
Greek houses were not responsible
for any of the 12 noise violations
given over homecoming weekend.
"It is a compliment to the stu-
dents, who are conducting them-
selves the way that they should be,"
said Mark Ouimet (R-4th Ward).
Council members stressed that
although the noise ordinance applies
to the entire community, it is im-
portant that students are aware of
"With a transient student popu-
lation, there is a need to constantly
reinforce the ordinance," said Ingrid
Sheldon (R-2nd Ward).
Mayor Liz Brater suggested that
student orientation groups should
be familiarized with this and all
other city ordinances that affect
The noise ordinance, which used
to have a set fine of up to $500 for
any violation, now separates pun-
ishments according to the number of
offenses, Grady said.
The limit of two years for sub-

ordinance because it is a "realistic

Earlier there had been conflict-
ing reports over Turner's where-
abouts, beginning yesterday evening
when an Iranian news agency said he
had been released. A senior Syrian
official later cast doubt on whether
the release had taken place.
U.S. officials, speaking on condi-
tion of anonymity, indicated the
United States had been told that
Turner was free, but didn't know
exactly where he was.
An editor in the Beirut office of
the Iran's Islamic Republic News
Agency said Turner was set free at 8
p.m. (2 p.m. EDT). The editor, who
refused to be identified, said he had
no further details.
He did not know where the 44-
year-old computer science professor
had been let go.

Turner, are being held in Lebanon.

Earl Nelson, the director of

ion of what constitutes diversity.
"This cut definitely shows that
Engler does not seriously regard the
issue of recruiting minority faculty
members at state universities," he
said. "I'm not in the Governor's
chair, but I do think this shows the
lack of importance he places on ob-
taining diversity in universities."
But Truscott said Engler is still
committed to diversity.
"There are still a number of pro-
grams that will bring minority pro-
fessors to universities," he said.
"The state does not need to fund
those programs when the universi-
ties can bring in their own minority

But Holbrook said the cut to the

more serious loss to the University.
