Reagan
hints at
'further
aetions
on oland
WASHINGTON (AP) "- President
eagan said yesterday that while U.S.
sanctions against the Warsaw and
Soviet governments have had some im-
pact, life for the Polish people continues
to deteriorate under martial law.
"We're not going to wait forever for
improvement," he said.
The president, conducting his seventh
'White House news conference just a
day before his first anniversary in of-
fice, did not spell out what new punitive
steps he had in mind regarding the
ituation in Poland.
NOR DID HE say what specific
results he believes were produced by
the crackdown he ordered on trade,
aviation and fishing rights after War-
saw imposed martial law to control the
Solidarity reform movement.
"I think they have had an effect,
although there's no question the
situation in Poland is still
deteriorating,'7 Reagan said. "They
have tried to present it as moderating;
lt isn't.
"People are still imprisoned," said
Reagan. "There is no communication
with Solidarity or between the military
government and the people."
REAGAN SAID he has had "a
lengthy communication" from Pope
John Paul II, himself a Pole, and "He
approves what we have done so far."
"And yet we are not going to wait
forever for, improvenent in the
ituation there,' declared Reagan.
"We have those steps that we can.

Bo receives

$25,00
By DREW SHARP
A proposed $25,000 raise and a
guarantee of an eventual promotion to
athletic director kept Bo Schembechler
at the coaching helm of the Michigan,
Wolverines.
And, according to University Regent
Deane Baker (R-Ann Arbor), the
Regents will likely approve the deal.
THE PAY RAISE would boost
Schembechler's annual salary to
"$87,000, and along with outside in-
terests, including a $150,000 Domino's
pizza franchise, given to Schembechler
by a University alumnus to keep him in
Ann Arbor, the 52-year-old coach's an-
nual income could climb to.more than
$125,000.
"The Regents do not necessarily have
to approve the contract given to Mr.
Schembechler, but I'm sure that we will
eventually approve it," Baker said
yesterday.
"I have no first-hand knowledge of

rase

the actual negotiations," he said. "they
were conducted between Mr. Canham
and Mr. Schembechler. I imagine that
this entire matter will be taken care of
in due couse," he said.
Schembechler and Canham were
unavailable for comment on the repor-
ted package.
A report last evening said that
Schembechler's main reason for rejec-
ting the Texas A&M offer was that he
did not want to cause the firing of then
head coach Tom Wilson. This was
rebuffed however, by Michigan
Associate Athletic Director Will Perry.
"I think Bo described his reasons for
staying pretty clearly at the press con-
ference Friday," said Perry. "At the
time, we thought he (Wilson) had
resigned from his position."
Wilson has since been relieved of his
Aggie coaching duties, and was
replaced yesterday by former Pit-
tsburgh Panther head coach Jackie
Sherrill.

TO PERSUADE HIM to stay at Michigan, Bo got a $25,000 raise and a Domino's pizza franchise.

MSA approves anti-hazing policy

By BETH ALLEN
All student organizations recognized
by the Michigan Student Assembly may
have to draw up their own sanctions
against hazings by March 1 under a
policy approved by MSA last night.
The Assembly last night also approved
a separate set of anti-hazing
guidelines drawn up by a special panel
of the University's Office of Student
Services. But those guidelines - like
the policy on student organizations also
approved by MSA last night - must be
okayed by faculty members and ad-
ministrators before going into effect.
THE TWO policies wil first be con-

sidered by a subcommittee of the
faculty assembly, the Senate Advisory
Committee on University Affairs,
before being passed on to the Regents'
for final approval or rejection.
Also last night, MSA approved its own
anti-hazing guidelines. According to
the sanctions, any student organization
caught hazing its members will lose its
MSA recognition - a status necessary to
receive office space in University
buildings and funds from the assembly.
Approval of the package of sanctions
and guidelines, came after several
weeks of debate which centered on how
large a role MSA should play in

punishing organizations accused of
hazing.
SOME MSA members advocated a
stronger policy that would directly im-
pose sanctions on individual frater-
nities, sororities, or athletic groups that
engage in hazing.
But MSA does not recognize many
fraternities and sororities and has no
jurisdiction over them, according to
MSA Vice President Amy Hartmann.
OTHER MSA members suggested
additions to the MSA sanctions such as
asking University President Harold
Shapiro to write a letter to national
organizations of groups violating the

policy and 'ensuring that the sanctions
become part of MSA's compiled code so
that future student governments cannot
abolish the policy withbut serious
deliberation.
If the guidelines are approved by the
University faculty and administration,
MSA would be. authorized to write
hazing sanctions for any student group
recognized by the student government
that does not submit guidelines on its
own by March 1.
The hazing definition the Assembly
approved is the result of more than a
year's work by fraternity and sorority
representatives.

8 RAs won't be

By JENNIFER MILLER
At least eight of nine dormitory
resident staff members put on
probation last term for not having a 2.5
grade point average brought their
grades up and were not fired, housing
officials confirmed yesterday.
The. Housing Staff Selection Commit-
tee decided last month to move the GPA
deadline to an earlier date in order to
avoid the problem caused by hiring
students last term who didn't meet the
requirements, said Charlene Coady,
assistant director of in-residence staff.
Housing officials decided last Oc-
tober not to immediately fire the nine
staff members and instead gaive them
until the end of the term to raise their
GPAs or credit hours. '1
ONE RA EACH from Baits, Markley,
and West Quad, and one RD and three

RAs in Bursley did not have a 2.5 GPA
when fall term began, but have now
met the requirement, dorm directors
and other sources confirmed.
An Oxford housing RA who didn't
meet the 55 credit hour requirement in
September is also no longer on
probation, according to Oxford
Housing Director Diana Wilson.
ONE SOUTH Quad RA was under
probation, but South Quad Director
Mary Antieau refused to confirm
whether the RA's grades had been -
Taised or whether the RA has been fired
this term..
The possibility of firing the resident
staff members arose last October as the
result of a new housing policy requiring
them to have a 2.5 GPA and 55 credit
hours at the start of the fall term, in-
stead of at the time of application in

,fired
January, as in the past.
Housing officials had hoped the new
deadline would give more students,
especially minority students, a chance
to meet the eligibility requirements.
HOWEVER, THE process of getting
transcripts to Coady's office and
reviewing each one took until mid-
October. A controversy arose over the
proposed firing of the eight RAs and one
RD during midterms and after they had
developed a rapport with their studen-
ts.
Housing officials met and decided to
give the staff members until the end of
fall term to raise their grades or be
fired.

mittee decided last month to move the

*Gay man's suspeiision reviewed

By STACY POWELL
The question of whether or not a
Michigan State University fraternity
should reinstate one of its members,
who was suspended after it was
discovered that he was a homosexual,
has been passed to the fraternity's
alumni board.
If the fraternity board decides to
reinstate the member, John Newak, -he
will likely drop the charges he filed with
the university's Anti-Discrimination
Judicial Board. But if the fraternity's
decision, which is expected in the
coming week. is to uphold Nowak's
suspension, Nowak will await a ruling
from the judicial appeals board or-
dering that he be reinstated, according
to Donald Jefferis, treasurer of MSU's

Inter-Fraternity Council.
NOWAK, WHO was suspended from
MSU's Delta Sigma Phi fraternity fan.
10, appealed to the Anti-discrimination
Judicial Board, demanding that he be
reinstated and that the fraternity issue
a public apology. The judicial board is
expected to hand down a ruling on
Nowak's case within 20 days, unless
Nowak withdraws his complaint
following a favorable decision by the
fraternity.
"There will be a hearing within 20
days, but Nowak's lawyer and lawyers
for Delta Sigma Phi are trying to work
things out before then," Jefferis said.
".We've done all we can. We're out of it
now."
Delta Sigma Phi fraternity president

Scott Pauley said the members have
decided not to make any more com-
ments on the case until a ruling is made
by the Anti-Discrimination Judicial
Board.
FRATERNITY member John Gilbert
said a private meeting was held Mon-
day night to determine the fraternity's
official policy regarding the suspen-
sion, and to discuss whether Gilbert
should be penalized for making the
situation public. Gilbert first brought
the matter to public attention by
writing a letter to the university's
student newspaper, the State News.
Present at Monday's meeting were
representatives from the Inter-Frater-
nity Council, the executive director of

The Ann Arbor City Council
unanimously approved Monday night
new funds for training depu~ty voter
registrars in response to student com-
plaints that they were being denied
easy access to registration.
Councilman Earl Greene (D-2nd)
proposed a resolution authorizing the
transfer of $1,000 to the city clerk's
budget to aid the deputy registrar
program. City Council held a public
hearing on the issue last week, and
several speakers expressed support for
the program.
"We have a backlog of people to go
through the program," Greene said. He
explained the city clerk could expedite
the process through new record-
keeping.
City administrator Terry Sprenkel
said the first training session would be
held Feb. 4. Registration forms will be
identical to thosesed by the Secretary
of State, he said.
Councilman Lowell Peterson (D-1st)
called the forms "idiot-proof. We have
an obligation to register people," he
said.
After the meeting, Peterson credited
student activists with bringing the
