The search committee selected six
candidates for further interviews by sev

decided to send three candidates to the
chancellor for final selection. The final

with any of the three (finalists),"
Dunkelman said. "The chancel lor asked
us not to rank the final candidates."
Tuchi has the same qualifications as
the other two final candidates, he said.
All three candidates have a doctorate

Dunkelman added that the chancel

until crowds had died down.

The search for suspects in an incident
involving the possible racial harass
ment of two black University students
continues, but the situation has esca
lated after the students received letters
Tuesday that they perceived as a con
tinuation of the harassment.
The office of the dean of students and
University Police are attempting to find
the person or people responsible for a
miniature noose found on the message
board outside the door of two black
Hinton James residents the Monday af
ter they returned from Spring Break.
Sophomores Corey Sturdivant and
- Melvin Browning, second floor Hinton
James residents, found the noose hang
ing from the pen attached to their mes
sage board March 9.
"I didn't know what it was at first
because I wasn't thinking anything ra
cial at the time," Sturdivant said. "I
couldn't believe it. I didn't think stuff
like this still happened."
Browning said he was angered at
such overt racism.
"My mom was ready to come get
me," he said. "But I explained to her
that it happens to black students on a lot
of college campuses."
A letter of apology appeared behind
their message board March 1 1, signed
by a Bill Russell, who claimed to be the
grand master of the Superior Order of
the Holy Cross.
Sturdivant said a friend told him that
Russell was the head of the Denver,
Colo., branch of the Ku Klux Klan.
When the only Bill Russell listed by
Denver information was contacted, he
denied any such affiliation.
The letter said the noose had been
meant for one of his suitemates as a
symbol of initiation into the group,
"I don't think so," he said. "I think it
was a joke."
Hinton James Area Director Bill
Latham said that while nothing overtly
racist was stated in the letter, the inci
dent was very possibly racially moti
vated. "When African-American students
find a noose on their door, you suspect
the worst," Latham said.
Sturdivant and Browning said they
believed that repeated letters posted this
week on the bathroom door in their suite
were written by the same people re
sponsible for the earlier incidents.
Sturdivant said the letters stated.
"Unless you're female or in there with
a female ... nobody wants your butt."
He said: "I think it was the same
people (that wrote the last letter). I'm
sick of it ... I really am."
Latham said he had not heard about

cials found the culprit, they would take
