Tm not interested at all in returning to that (segregation)," he said. "That's not going to happen as long as I have anything to do about it. I think it's illegal: I think it would work against us. That's not an appropriate thing to put on a housing card," he said. Affirmative Action Officer Marshall Rose could not be reached for comment Sunday night. A meeting Dec. 2 between Housing and the Office of Minority .Affairs officials resulted in the possible policy change for black students when they file a residence hall request card, said Laura Gonzales, director of the Office of Minority Affairs, in an earlier interview. The recommendation involved "improving conditions in residence halls for black students" and stems from an investigation of an April 2 conflict between black and white students in Wheeler Hall, she said. According to Gonzales, Housing would send accepted black students letters with their housing card. The letter would state that the black studenta can specify if they want to live with another black student, she said. Gonzales is supposed to complete a rough draft of the letter for Housing's approval by the next meeting, tentatively scheduled for this week, she said. Jennings, who retires as Housing director Dec. 24, said identifying minorities could be done by working with the Admissions office and letting residence hall directors pair up minorities, unless students specify a certain roommate. The meeting with Gonzales and several other people was just to discuss things, not to formulate proposals for action, Jennings said. "I was not pleased that there was a release (to the press) after that meeting. I didn't agree to anything. We never ever agreed that we would put that on a housing card." Jennings said. Also at the meeting were Gary Ciaf- fone, assistant director of Housing; Ann Owens, complex manager in Beddow Please See HOUSING Page 14 Canned Ritual of throwing toilet paper during hoop games to end by RICK JAKACXI UfE Sports Editor Beginning Thursday, CMU officials are planning to halt the toilet paper-throwing ritual at Chippewa basketball games. The throwing, which occurs each game following the first CMU basket, will be stopped because it could become "detrimental" to the men's basketball team and "endanger the safety of fans." Athletic Director Dave Keilitz said. CMlTn name Thursday against Youngstown Slate marks tbe first time officials will prohibit tbe toilet paper ritual, liegun more than a season ago. Fans'reaction PacjelO All rolls of tissue will be confiscated at the door. Any person who smuggles the toilet paper into Rose and tosses it will be escorted from the arena. Keilitz said then* are two reasons for the banishing of the toss. "We feel we've got tbe l>est fans in the Mid-American Conference and we don't want to dampen enthusiasm." Keilitz said "But the MAO office has informed us we may get a technical foul, and, also, liecause of the safety factor. It's getting out if hand with some pco- pie. "All of a sudden, it's not fun anymore." Keilitz said this season, participants are stuffing the inside of toilet paper rolls, causing them to liecome heavier, thus traveling farther Spectators also are throwing them at officials and opposing teams and a few rolls are tossed well after the first basket is made. In addition, objects, other than toilet paper, are lieing thrown onto the court One person threw an egg after the first basket in the Western Kentucky-CMl' game Dec. 7. Keilitz. said at the same game. two people's eyeglasses were broken by tbe flying toilet paper Also, officials working the games have complained to the MAC office. For upcoming games, at the referees* discretion, a technical foul may In* called on the CMU fans. At the ln'ginning of this season. the conference adopted a new policy, aimed, in part, to control the toilet paper toss "All MAC institutions shall take steps to prohibit the throwing of any articles onto the floor during basketball games. If any articles are thrown in sufficient numbers to cause an undue game delay, in the opinion of the game officials, then the teams will be sent to their locker rooms until the floor is cleared," the policy states The policy was unanimously approved by both the men's basketball coaches and by the league's athletic directors.

The advertisement, published in the Saginaw News, states applicants for the job are required to have "a valid Michigan driver's license with psycho endorsement or ability to obtain." Jackie Pappas. the Personnel secretary who placed the advertisement over the phone, said the News' classified advertising salesman apparently misunderstood her when she said, "applicants must have valid Michigan drivers license with cycle permit," a requirement to become a Michigan police ofTicer. The advertisement, which appeared in the News' Dec. 6 Help Wanted section, caused quite a stir at DPS, several officials said. ('apt. Ron Williams said he and other members of his department have taken a lot of good-natured kidding about it but said "if the shoe fits..." DPS Director John McAulifTe said he'll Ik* more cautious about screening applicants for the position "Colleagues have called to say they've alwa>s suspected (DPS officers to be a little eccentric), but this verifies it." he said. McAulifTe added: "It helps to be a little zany to work here, but we don't require a psycho permit." Williams said new DPS officers should be required to follow the same regulations as officers presently on the staff "If those of us who presently work here have to meet the qualifications, new workers should have to also" Pappas said Friday she was not aware of any applicants who have a valid "psycho" permit, but said members of her department have been reading the applications closely since the advertisement appeared. "We're screening them a little more carefully now," she said. Kevin Newton, advertising sales manager at the NeVs. said he was not aware of the error. "Are you sure it isn't true?" Newton asked. "A lot of us here, including myself, are CMU alumni. It sounded right to us." I11 i <l il'
