Eleven of the 19 residence halls have policies for checking room numbers on keys In-fore admitting residents into their halls. The other halls do not check keys, but they do lock all doors except the lobby door at midnight and monitor traffic coming in these doors. Terry Evers.

Two warrants for fourth- degree criminal sexual conduct were issued against the youth, whose name was not released, said Capt. Ron Williams of the Department of Public Safety.

Central safeguards make it easier to understand foreign-born profs County hopes hotline puts bite on drugs by WENDY GENZER 1 'Ft St.l't '.Vr.' by LAURA PHILLIPS I H - .t.iM vv. •■ - Understanding a foreign-lxirn professor's accent is not always easy for students, but CMU has some safeguards to help avoid the problem. Acting Provost -lanice Reynolds said most departments have faculty candidates give a speech - in a class ledure or presentation form - as part of the interviewing process. "They try to judge the proficiency of language ^killsand communication skills of i faculty candidates)." she said In addition. CM I* offers the faculty several seminars to help improve their communication skills. However. Reynolds said, the seminars don't guarantee perfect communication skills Wh.cn students do have problems understanding a professor's accent, said Hanif Khan, a clinical nutrition professor, students should talk to the professor. "I always try to make sure I'm understood." he said. "1 can slowdown. I can make sure they understand if they let me know." Khan said Khan, originally from Pakis tan, said he doesn't think anyone should have a problem. Professors are there to solve the students' problems, he said. Kim Van Stee, Onaway senior, suggests students ask the teachers to repeat themselves or ask them to write on the board when they cannot be understood. "You can pick up on the accent after a while." Van Stee said. "Most of the time you can understand them if you just try." Debbie Conklin, Linden junior, said she feels ("Mil's policy doesn't guarantee good communication between students and professors, adding she once had a professor she could not understand. "When we asked her a question, she didn't understand us," Conklin said. She added the l>est thing to do in that situation is to try to gel into another st>ction or take the class another semester. "My profs would specifically ask, 'Do you understand?" Val- one Kinney. Oscoda senior, said "I think the students don't feel comfortable enough to go to them for extra help, so it probably comes back to the student." she said. If Isabelta County Sheriffs Department deputies li.iw their way. citizens will be "disconnecting" drug traffickers Isabelta County Sh.-rill .J.im.-s Mull said he hopes bis department's new toll-free drug tip hotline will encourage people to report suspected illegal drug activities. The hotline was installed at the Sheriff's Department .Ian. 1 So far. Mull said, about five calls, have Iteen taken on the new line, which is answered by Sheriffs Department dispatchers. "The idea is to have a toll-free numlier when- anyone in the county can call to tell us aliout suspected drug-related activities." Mull said "It is completely confidential and the caller can remain anonymous if he likes" Money seized in a drug raid on three Saginaw men last year will pay for the hotline. Mull said Drug forfeiture laws. Mull said, state that money seized in a raid can In- confiscated and does not need to be returned even il the suspects are not found guilty He said the hotline will cost tin- county less than $1.IKHI a year initially and added he hopes more drug seizures in tin- future will support it if expenses increase If the number of people calling increases.
