Cougar News Services

UH will be symposium central this weekend as two forums, one on the future of the largest cities in America following the Sept. 11 terrorist
attacks and another on the Vietnam War, come to campus.

Academic experts, journalists and political leaders will meet at the UH Hilton beginning at 9 a.m. Friday for the 2nd Annual Lanier Public Policy
Conference. The "Resurgence of America's Great Cities: Causes, Consequences and Sustainability After 9/11" symposium will focus on the
ways in which residents of New York, Chicago, Los Angeles and Houston are dealing with any post-attack changes.

Former mayor of Houston Bob Lanier, former mayor of San Antonio Henry Cisneros, Harvard economist Edward Glauser, Ron Brownstein from
the Los Angeles Times and author David Rusk will speak during the event, which will be split into morning and afternoon sessions.

From 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, the Center for Military History will bring a "Fall of South Vietnam and Lessons Learned" symposium to the
Houston Room of the University Center. Speakers such as Congressional Medal of Honor recipient Clarence Sasser will present the war from
the soldiers' points of view and talk about survivors of key battles.

The veterans' views of the Vietnam War will also be discussed.
