TRANSFER
Continued from page 1
"technical change."
"There are a lot of advantages to
this change of jurisdiction," she said.
"One thing that came out in the
hearings is that the students are sig-
nificantly concerned about their op-
portunity to have input. This gives
us a greater opportunity to interact
with the students."
Smith then spoke against the
transfer. Although she said she did
not condone the behavior of students
who protested at the deputization
hearings, she said she was troubled
by the "lack of democratic process"
involved in the deputization

proceedings.
Vice President for Student
Affairs Maureen Hartford also said
that she thinks students are being left
out.
"I believe that students on cam-
pus need to be included earlier in the
process," she said. "We need to get
students onto committees, and into
meetings with (the regents.)"
Hartford also condemned the stu-
dents' protest methods.
During the meeting, about 20
students sat with their mouths
gagged holding signs which
protested their lack of input in the
process.
Smith then criticized the
University for the lack of people of
color on the force. She also ques-

tioned the Michigan Union entrance
policy.
University President James
Duderstadt defended the policy.
"There is extensive student in-
volvement in that policy," he said.
Regent Deane Baker (R-Ann
Arbor) also defended the policy, and
said that it was necessary to insure
the safety of the students who use
the Union.
Smith expressed concern that the
regents were not notified that three
of the students who testified at the
public hearings were employed by
the campus police force.
"I'm troubled that they did not
identify themselves," she said.
Regent Nellie Varner (D-Detroit)
stressed the need for teaching the
campus police how to react in a
University community.
"One student yesterday addressed
the sensitivity training. Make sure
this training is adequate. Make sure
the force understands the situation,"
she said.

Regent Philip Power (D-Ann
Arbor) said the issue was not
whether to have deputized police,
but how to have the best police force
possible.
"We need to make sure that our
force responds to the special needs
and characteristics of the University.
Our officers must be very well-
trained and carefully selected," he
said.
He added that in his opinion, the
public hearings were extremely
helpful.
Varner questioned what proce-
dure will be followed when both
Ann Arbor and campus police re-
spond to a situation. She also told
the board to make sure that the
force's oversight board is effective.
Baker cited an incident from
some years ago during which a stu-
dent attacked the University presi-
dent. He said Ann Arbor police ar-
rived promptly, but that a campus
force could have responded more
quickly or prevented the situation.

CODES

lated and more emphasis should be
put on education and awareness of
the issue.
Hollmann added, "(Other people
are saying), 'It's about time the uni-
versity starts protecting people who
are unable to defend themselves be-
cause it is like a slap in the face and
it prohibits further discussions.'"
Rosenthal agreed with
Hollmann's conclusion and added
the student Senate passed a speech
code resolution Jan. 8.
"While we find hate speech
wrong, no provisions should be in
the student conduct code," Rosenthal
said in summarizing the student
Senate resolution.
Several college administrators
said they have had success handling
hate speech with a general policy
that does not set specific language
restrictions.
Brown University does not have
a speech code, but Vice President
and General Counsel Beverly
Ledbetter said the administration
uses its harassment policy, the
Tenets of Community Behavior, six
to eight times a year.
In one particular case at Brown
last year, a student violated four
provisions - public drunkenness,
misrepresentation, disrespect, and
behavior which shows flagrant ha-
rassment - and was expelled.
Representatives at Duke

University and Princeton University
- colleges with anti-discrimination
policies, but no specific speech
codes - said they are not in favor of
strict speech codes.
Sue Wasiolek, dean for Student
Life at Duke, said, "Basically we
handle the situation in two ways -
if it rises to the level of assault or
disorderly conduct it goes through
the campus judicial process, if it's
just offensive speech we bring the
two parties together and try to
mediate."
Princeton officials said the uni-
versity has also had a limited num-
ber of hate speech incidents. "We
'We felt it was
constitutional and not
an infringement on
freedom of speech.'

Dean of Students
will permit people to speak their
minds and ideas ... provided that the
speech is not personally directed at
an individual," said Kathleen
Deignan, associate dean of students
at Princeton.
"I suppose some would say we're
fortunate ... Perhaps it is because we
bend over backwards to protect
speech."

CHINA: The Senate voted 59-39 to bar the president from
renewing most-favored-nation trading status to China for the 12
months beginning July 3 unless he can certify that the Chinese
government has released political prisoners and made other progress
on human rights.
Sens. Carl Levin (D-Mich.) and Donald Riegle (D-Mich.) voted for
the bill.
HATIANS: The House voted 217-165 to suspend for six months
the repatriation of Hatians fleeing their homeland in the wake of a
military coup. It covers those in U.S. custody before Feb. 5.
Rep. Carl Pursell (R-Plymouth) voted for the bill.

the residence hall," she said.
Hughes said off-campus housing
is attractive to students because it is
a renters' market and as a result,
landlords are eager to bargain with
prospective tenants. However, he
stressed an advantage residence halls
offer through special programming
which is unavailable in off-campus

housing.
Hughes presented the Housing
Division's rate recommendation to

economical.'

in real income in the past decade and
the past few years, Levine said.
Major rioting occurred in Venezuela
three years ago in response to rising
prices and shortages of goods.
The government shuffled the
cabinet and created an advisory
council to the president in response
to the unrest which precipitated the
coup, he said.
Levine implied that these were
cosmetic changes. It is "effectively
impossible to get many people to
join the government," Levine said.
The government's immediate re-

sponse was to agree to a negotiated
surrender within a day of the late
evening insurrection. The govern-
ment suspended constitutional guar-
antees including the freedom of the

"Lollipops for business are no better
than lollipops for the middle class."
Brown renewed his call for a
universal flat tax, saying the current
tax code was a "4,000 page tax
morass that feeds on the corruption

change" in the government of
Venezuela. Levine said political
leaders, the business world and al-
most every major political party ex-
cluding the government party are
calling for the resignation of the
president, the supreme court and the
congress and constitutional reform to
accelerate the pluralization of
Venezuelan politics.
"The political classes are very
anxious to preserve the democracy
until the end of the year" when elec-
tions take place, Levine added.
"The coup is very serious. What
is more amazing about the coup is
that it uncorked desire and fear to
make changes right away," Levine
said.
was a terrible mistake," Clinton said,
repeating that he gave up a defer-
ment and made himself available for
the draft, but was never called.
Kerrey came after Clinton again
later, during a lengthy debate discus-
sion on national health care, and
how to get the care to rural residents
in states like Georgia.
"That was a baloney answer,"
Kerrey said when Clinton said his
plan would provide the preventive

Georgia's defense workers worried
that military cuts will cost them their
jobs.
The most colorful exchanges
came when the candidates were al-
lowed to ask questions of a rival.
Nebraska Sen. Bob Kerrey asked
Clinton how he could promote a
program that would allow for public
service to pay back college loans
when he didn't serve his country in
Vietnam.
"I opposed that war. I thought it

care needed to slash the rate of in-
fant mortality and low-birth weight
babies. "Your proposal, Bill, does
not solve the problem and in fact
may make it worse."
Clinton retorted that Kerrey's
government-run plan included "nine
separate tax increases" and advo-
cated his plan to require employers
to either pay for workers' health care
or pay into a government insurance
fund.
"It's nice to be out of the line of
fire," joked Tsongas, the punching
bag for his rivals in the final minutes
of Saturday's debate in Colorado.
