HALEY
Continued from page 1
said he learned how memories pass from gen-
eration to generation, and he gave the audi-
ence some advice based on his own work.
He advised people seeking their histories
to go to their grandparents. "We all know
that grandparents would tell grandchildren
things they wouldn't tell their own chil-
dren," he said.
Haley also emphasized that people should
thank previous generations for paving a path
for them to follow.
"You should open your arms wide and
physically hug them and say thank you for
making you possible," he said. "Show them
you have reached the maturity to appreciate
what they've done for you."
The theme of respect for family was also
raised at an earlier panel discussion, attended
by Haley, titled "The Role of the successful
African America individual in the 1990s and
beyond."
The panel also included Henry Johnson of
the University Alumni Association, Vice-
Provost for Minority Affairs Charles
Moody, and Heisman Trophy winner
Desmond Howard.

Howard stressed the role his family
played in his success, and said, "I'm not ever
embarrassed to thank my family, even on na-
tional television."
Later in the discussion Haley paid
Howard a compliment, calling him "about as
beautiful a Black role model as I've seen."
At the panel, Haley also discussed some
of his experiences with Malcolm X. He
pointed out that it is often forgotten today
that Malcolm X placed a great emphasis on
learning.
"I see young people walking around the
inner city with the 'X' hats on, and they
don't seem to realize how deeply dedicated
Malcolm X was to the education of Black
people," he said.
Crowds attending both events said they
felt inspired to see the young and old leaders
together.
"Haley was very emotional, but not heav-
ily emotional because he used his sense of hu-
mor," Social Work graduate student Gretta
Abu-Isa said. "When he told the story of
how he figured out what the ties between his
ancestors like Kunta Kine were, he didn't
have to explain it. It just sent a tingle down
my spine."

HEARINGS
Continued from page 1
The regents will examine this re-
quest.
There was a tentative proposal
that a "neutral" person moderate
the hearings in place of President
Duderstadt, Green said. Hartford
was suggested as a possibility. The
regents must approve this as well.

"The
run was

way it (the hearing) was
not conducive to letting

students express themselves," Van
Houweling said.
Students will be given five min-
utes to speak at the hearings. A ten-
tative plan calls for one hour for
students who signed up to speak and
the second hour for those who
missed the sign-up deadline.
"The meeting was frank and

somewhat constructive," Green
said. "My big concern is making
sure that everyone can speak, and if
they can, then I'm satisfied."
Because the dates of the hearing
are close to spring break and many
students may leave on Thursday for
an early vacation, students who call
to reserve a speaking time will be
asked to speak on Thursday to avoid
an absence of speakers on that day,

Van Houweling said.
The MSA representatives sug-
gested that the public hearings be
divided, one in February and one in
March. Swain said she will present
this suggestion to the Regents.
The University said they would
begin to advertise for the public
hearings almost immediately by
diffusing information through
MSA and campus governments and

putting advertisements in campus
publications.
Plans for setting up the over-
sight board were also discussed at
the meeting.
"We have concerns that the over-
sight board won't have effective
power," Van Houweling said. "We
want something that looks at poli-
tics and campus security more holis-
tically, and we want some represen-
tation of students that has a broad
range of powers."
Two students, two faculty and
two staff members will be elected
to the oversight committee. MSA
will monitor student elections, and
faculty elections will be adminis-
tered through S ACUA and staff
elections will be open to all staff
including union workers.
There is already a 12-person
oversight board in place, but a new
six-person board must be elected ac-
cording to state legislation.
"One option is to let the new,
six-person commit tee deal simply
with grievances and use the struc-
ture of (the other) committee but

make it democratic, define it's ob-,
jectives and make it elective," Van'
Houweling said.
"This is what I feel to be the
most importantdfacet of this legis'.
lation," he added. "It's the only",
part of the legislation that offers an'
advantage over having the Sheriff
deputize."
Those who attended the meeting,,
said it was a good first step.

"I think that despite the fact,
that they had a different idea than,
we did about the hearings, hopefully,
we've ironed out some issues," Van.
Houweling said.
Members of the administration
agreed that the meeting wasT
productive.
The University Board of Regents
plans to vote on campus deputiza-
tion at the February meeting, and,
the executive officers will present a
motion at the Regents meeting for,,
the University to assume authoriza-
tion (of deputization) by July 1,.;
1992.
The DPS budget was increased
when the decision to deputize of fi,
cers was made. This money pays fot'
the new equipment.
"Sure there was a budget in,
crease," Executive Director of,
University Relations Walt.
Harrison said. "They bought cars
and hired new people, but with an
'We'require officers
to take a target test
10 months out of 12.'

from a police academy where they
learn how to use their weapons
safely, and many already had several
years experience," said Lt. Vern
Baisden, Supervisor of Crime Pre-
vention for DPS.
Each of the security guards still
working as DPS officers after depu-
tization had to reapply. There was
not an automatic rehiring, said Bais-
den.
DPS Sgt. Chris Spork said there
was a definite increase in responsi-
bility when an officer carries a gun.
"You have to be aware of when you
can use or even draw it," said Spork.
"There are very strict guidelines
concerning the use of weapons."
Baisden described those guide-
lines as, "In the defense of the life
of a citizen or officer. A weapon is
the last resort."

She added that, in her opinion,
having a code is a good idea.

Other equipment that came
along with the $25,000 bill to the
