time to writing tickets.
Most Michigan police forces,
including Ann Arbor's, operate
upon a quota system, according to
Cahill. "In my area it's a revenue
raising device."
Michigan state police think the
bill would hinder their ability to en -

Dr. Charles Moody, the University's new Vice Provost, for Minority
Affairs, stands in his office filled with flowers and balloons to celebrate
his new position.

(Cadmed from Pwg 1)
Moody will act as a liason be -
tween minority students and fa -
culty, relaying their concerns to the
executive officers. Moody's posi -
tion was elevated to the provost
level last March by University Pre-
sident Harold Shapiro as part of the
University's six point plan to dem -
onstrate its commitment to minor -
ity concerns.
As provost Moody hopes to
improve the quality of academic and
non-academic life for minority stu -
dents and faculty. In addition to as -
sessing the strengths and weakness-
es of the present programs concrn-
ing minority recruitment and reten -
tion, Moody plans on developing
new policies.
"I hope to create new variations
or new approaches to the same
theme. I want to try to develop
some novel, unique, innovative

ways of recruiting and tapping into
minority organizations. I will try to
maximize the resources we have at,
our disposal," he said.
As director of the Program for
Educational Opportunity, Moody
has been actively involved in efforts
to curb race and sex discrimination
in public schools throughout Mich -
igan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.
Moody believes that one of the
biggest problems facing minority
students is their lack of recognitio
at the University. "I would like t
see theUniversity value diversity as
a strength, not a weakness. People
have a tendency to discount things
that minorites do and contribute to
the institution. Minority students
have earned a right to be here, not
because someone lowered standards
for them," he said.
