DOES THE I.H.L. WANT A "DOORMAT"

State Senator Rips College Board

At yesterday's special session, Gulfport Senator Billy Hewes blasted the state College Board for their treatment of USM President Horace Fleming Hewes said that Fleming went against the grain by advocating a stronger university presence on the Gulf Coast.

While on the chamber floor, he went on to say, "I suspect the job description approved by the College Board will be something like this, University president position available: Applicant must not be an individual of strong opinion, character or moral fiber. Must have a demonstrated history as a doormat with a desire to develop these attributes further. Leadership skills not required or desired. Anyone with a backbone or possessing the ability to take initiative need not apply. No visionaries, please.''

Last week the college board offered Fleming a one-year contract, but Fleming turned it down.
