MSA members call
hazing proposal weak

IN BRIEF

By BETH ALLEN
Michigan Student Assembly mem-
bers criticized last night a set of
proposed anti-hazing guidelinesand a
new set of sanctions against violators,
arguing that the guidelines are too
weak to be effective.
The sanctions "should be strong and
viable rather than a weak approach
with loopholes,' said MSA member Ed
Nwokedi.
AFTER REVIEWING a proposed
definition of hazing approved by the
Office of Student Services last
December, MSA members decided to
add a set of sanctins to the definition.
The guidelines written last year by
a group of fraternity and sorority
members, define hazing but do not list
specific sanctions, a problem MSA
wants to remedy.
"We're not criticizing the
guidelines; we just feel (the sanctions
proposal) is a little iore concrete,"
said MSA Vice President Amy Har-
tmann, who supervised the drafting of
the sanctions.
THE PROPOSED sanctions would
give MSA's Student Organizations
Board the power to revoke recognition
or refuse MSA recognition to any
group violating hazing guidelines and
to send notification of hazing
violations to national organizations in

the case of fraternities and sororities.
Most MSA members who criticized
the package. of sanctions and
guidelines objected to the suggestion
that MSA conduct confidential
hearings into hazing complaints,
saying that it is unlikely anyone will
come forward with complaints.
MSA member Steve Belkin said
even if MSA conducts the hearings
confidentially, many national
organizations would demand non-
confidential hearings which would
deter students from coming to MSA.
HARTMANN said the MSA-
proposed sanctions are not written to
deal with athletic organizations, but
said she hopes those groups will write
their own sanctions.
"The University policy is a positive
step in the right direction," Hartma-
nn said, "but it isn't enough."
Hartmann said she had contacted
leaders in the Interfraternity Council
and the Pan-hellenic Association to
help write the sanctions, and added
that the leaders had discussed incor-
porating hazing sanctions into the
codes of their respective groups.
Pan-hellenic spokeswoman Janine
Brown said yesterday that her
organization was not as concerned as
some groups over the policy because
it doesn't believe hazing is a problem
within the sororities.

'U' profs say Polish regime may collapse

(Continued from Page 1)
Zimmerman said he was surprised
that martial law wasn't declared
earlier. He also said he was surprised
that the martial law had been so brutal
and so effective.
YET, GITELMAN said he doubts
Solidarity has been crushed by the mar-
tial law. "There is no sign of an
agreement with Solidarity, and no sign
that Solidarity is subservient to the
government," he said.
Gitelman also noted that even if
Jaruzelski is successful in taming
Solidarity, his regime could be con-
demned by continued economic collap-
se. Unless the regime can inspire
greater productivity among workers, it
vould be brought down by its failure to
boost the economy, he said. Poland's
chronic food shortages, foreign debt of
more than $28 billion, and lack of
prospects for reform threaten an
already unstable situation, Gitelman

said.
AS JARUZELSKI and his gover-
nment try to rebuild the Polish
economy, the government's ability to in
some way get the working class
producing at high levels again is key to
resolution of the crisis, the professors
,agreed.
"You can't run a country without the
workers acquiescing," Suny said.
He also said although he believes
resistance is now sporadic at best, the
passive resistance movement that has
been reported recently is the most ap-
propriate measure workers can take
because it gives them some bargaining
power and is not a violent threat to the
regime.
BUT SZPORLUK said if worker
resistance becomes too severe the
"government may opt for tighter con-
trols. It is possible to force people to
work, although that cannot in Poland go
on for very long."

Szporluk also linked worker produc-
tivity with political reforms. "A coun-
try cannot have a good economy
without certain political rights (which
he said Polish workers do not have un-
der the current martial law). Martial
law itself will not solve anything," he
said.
Gitelman said Jaruzelski can still
strengthen the government's grip over
the workers. "The government can link
workers' wages to productivity. If
productivity goes down, the gover-
nment can increase prices," he said.
"Over a long period of time the workers
will say 'we must produce to survive.' If
they don't, they'd be cutting their noses
off to spite their faces."
BUT, AS Zimmerman said, all this
depends on what actions the regime is
willing to take to survive. "If you are
willing to kill a lot you can survive."
But while the situation in Poland has
not approached that point, "non-
cooperation has become quite expan-
sive in some critical areas," he said,

particularly in the nation's 50 to 60 key
industrial factories.
And, according to Zimmerman, the
United States canehave some influen-
ce in Poland by helping banks absorb
Poland's debt and giving agricultural
aid. "But Reagan's sanctions hurt
Polish citizens more than the gover-
nment."
Gitelman, however, said in order
for the sanctions to have any real im-
pact, the United States needs support
from Western Europe. "Without help,
sanctions will have no impact on a
practical level," he said. "They will
be largely symbolic."
S zporluk was more skeptical, "It is
not within the United States' power to
cause the Polish government to
retreat from its policies."
Suny added, "Reform in the East
can only happen with good East-West
relations. You don't influence the
Soviets by antagonizing them (as
Reagan has done)."

Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
Polish officials hope to end
martial law by February
WARSAW, Poland- Polish Deputy Prime Minister Jerzy Ozdowski told a
news conference for Western reporters yesterday that Poland's authorities
"would like to end" martial law by Feb. 1.
However, Ozdowski said there was no timetable for ending the state of
emergency declared Dec. 13 and that a decision on lifting military rule
"depends on the situation."
At the same news conference, government spokesman Jerzy Urban said
although Walesa's future is "unknown, he is such a personality that a place
will be found for him in future agreements."
Both Urban and Ozdowski refused to say where Walesa has been held since
the martial law crackdown, which has led to the internment of more than
5,000 Solidarity activists.
Testimony undermines
defense in Williams trial
ATLANTA- Testimony in the Atlanta murder trial of Wayne Williams
undermined two vital aspects of his defense yesterday when one witness
testified she saw Williams with murder victim Nathaniel Cater and another
witness reported seeing Cater alive three days before his body was found.
Much of Williams' defense had been based on claims that Cater may have
been dead more than a week before his body was recovered from the Chat-
tahoochee River. Williams, who is also on trial for murdering Jimmy Ray
Payne, denied knowing either of the victims.
Payne and Cater are two of 28 young blacks killed during a 22-month
period in Atlanta. No arrests have been made in the other 26 cases.
Margaret Carter, who said she had been a friend of Cater's since 1978,
testified that she saw Williams and Cater on the bench near the apartment of
Cater's parents.
Reagan reconsiders tax
exemptions for private colleges
WASHINGTON - President Reagan, in an abrupt tactical shift spurred by
the protests of civil rights groups and the top blacks in his administration,
announced yesterday he would seek legislation to deny tax-exempt status to
private schools and colleges that practice racial discrimination.
The legislation would overturn the administration's four-day-old decision
to reverse an 11-year-old federal policy of denying tax exemptions to non-
profit institutions that discriminate on the basis of race.
In a statement issued after a Cabinet meeting Tuesday afternoon, Reagan
said he remains "unalterably opposed to racial discrimination in any form"
and that the sole reason for the Treasury decision was the conviction that
government agencies should follow the will of Congress and "cannot be
allowed to govern by administrative fiat."
Taiwan arms sale criticized
WASHINGTON - President Reagan's compromise on the volatile issue
of arms sales to Taiwan has reaped criticism from both Peking and Taipei -
as well as key congressional allies.
China lodged a "strong protest' over *Reagan's decision to replenish
Taiwan's existing arsenal of F-5E jet fighters, even though he denied the
island nation the more advanced F-5G Tigersharks it wanted.
Taiwan said it was disappointed, and members of Congress complained
that the president failed to fully consult with them and reneged on a cam-
paign commitment to the Nationalist government.
In a confidential memorandum to members of the Senate Foreign
Relations committee, chairman Charles Percy (R11ll.) said, "We have a
commitment from the State Department that it will consult the committee
before a final presidential decision on arms sales to Taiwan."

Rape suspect
apprehended
Police arrested a suspect Monday in
connection with the rape last August of
a 21-year-old Ann Arbor woman.
Charles Cecil Spratling, 26, was
charged with first-degree criminal
sexual conduct in an arraignment at 15th
District Court. A preliminary
examination was scheduled for Jan. 20
and bond was set at $50,000. No address
for Spratling was given.
Police said the rape occurred in the
700 block of Packard between 7:15 and
7:30 a.m. Aug. 22. An intruder broke in-

According to the committee report,
some members felt the RHA "needs to
prove itself of worth before this large
an increase in funding would be in or-
der." Hughes will be making a recom-
mendation on RHA funding to the
Regents.
Students interested in serving on the
rate committee are selected through
the RHA, Sunstad said.
