Student code:


Viewed by some as an unacceptable
regression to 1950's paternalism, and others as
simply the best way to protect students, the
University's recent push to adopt a conduct
code for student behavior outside the
classroom has student leaders up in arms -
and administrators doing what they can to
calm them.
In the planning for nearly three years,

the proposed code is now undergoing final
revisions and will probably be brought to the
regents for final approval this spring.
IF ADOPTED, it would prohibit such acts as
arson, sexual harassment, assault, theft, van-
dalism, and possibly some types of civil
disobedience - all things the University has
traditionally left to civil authorities to police.
To enforce the code, the University would set
up an internal judicial system, headed by a
professor or administrator.

Relying upon outside authorities such as the
police and civil and criminal courts has not suf-
ficiently protected the University community
from students who are potentially dangerous,
say officials who helped draft the proposed
THEY SAY they have had difficulties ex-
pelling students who may be a threat to other
students, professors, and staff members -
even for violations as serious as arson or

ALTHOUGH THE University updated a set

Farmhand accused of

molesting cow

A farmowner charged with holding
two men as slaves testified yesterday
that one of the workers was ordered to
leave the farm because he sexually
molested a cow.
Ike Kozminski, 61, told the 12-
member jury in a crowded U.S. District
Courtroom yesterday that his wife,
Margarethe, had caught farmhand
Robert Fulmer "molesting cows
"(Margarethe) told (Fulmer) to pack
his stuff and get off (the farm)," said
Kozminski who spoke with a heavy
Polish accent. "(Fulmer) cried and
said he wouldn't do this (anymore). He
(said) he would try to be better."
IN THE LAST day of testimony of the
state's first slavery case in more than
60 years Kozminski denied charges that
he held Fulmer, 57, and Louis Molitoris,

60, against their will on his farm at
4768 Peckins Rd. near Chelsea.
Kozminski, his wife, 56, and his son
John, 30, are each charged- with two
counts of violating the farmhands' civil
rights and one count of involuntary ser-
Last week prosecuting witnesses
testified that Fulmer and Molitoris
were frequently beaten, slapped, and
verbally abused by the Kozminskis.
Witnesses also said the men lived in a
dilapidated, old trailer without heat or
running water, were fed spoiled food,
and inadequately clothed.
BUT KOZMINSKI and his wife both
denied such charges in their
testimonies yesterday.
Kozminski said he bought 10 to 12
bags of groceries each week for the two
men, spending about $150 a week. Koz-
minski added that Fulmer and

Molitoris were picky about what kind of
food they ate.
"If I brought the wrong kind of

Kozminski said he had purchased for
the men.
U.S. Assistant District Attorney
Virginia Morgan said in her opening
statements that Kozminski forced the
men to work long hours without pay.
But Kozminski said that the men
were hired in exchange for food,
shelter, and clothing and that he never
promised them any money.

'U' students
compete for
next year 's

"If you want to become independently wealthy,
leave the room," Associate Director of Housing
John Heidke told about 200 prospective residence hall
staff applicants Tuesday night in a MLB auditorium.
They may not make much money at it, but the lure
of free room and board is expected to attract 800-900
RA applicants this year.
TO WIN the dubious privileges of dorm food, loud
stereos; and a reputation as hall police officer, the
candidates must first go through some tough com-
petition for only 167 available spots.
Preference is given to reapplying RAs.
The tryouts are "tough, time-consuming, and ner-
ve-wracking," said Engineering Junior Fred Langer,
an RA in Mosher-Jordan.
AS MOST STUDENTS apply at more than one
dormitory to improve their chances of being picked,
they must go through the lengthy interviewing

process several times.
In order to be picked, applicants must have a 2.5
cumulative .grade point average and have 48 un-
dergraduate credit hours. The Housing office will
notify students who are picked for the spots around
March 30, said -Assistant Director of Housing
Charlene Coady.
"We hope students are applying because they're
really interested, but I'm sure there are some people
who are only interested in the free room and board,"
Coady said.
"YOU'D BE LYING if you said (free room and
board) didn't come to mind," admitted LSA junior
Steven Sanford yesterday.
Sanford, who wasn't picked in last year's tryouts,
said, "You feel as though they should get to know you
better before they decide you're not what they want."

The Valentine Day's massacre
THINGS AREN'T coming up roses at Louisiana's Cen-
tenary College. School officials worked for more than
two years to produce a rose hybrid bred specifically to sell
just in time for Valentine's Day, but Shreveport residents
will have to take a trip to the florists' after all. A new gar-
dener ruined the plans of the 100 people who ordered thet
flower when he acidentally plowed under 1,200 Centenary
rose bushes. "It is just so horrible," Centenary

when they plastered six floors' worth of hallways with
paper to protest a new bulletin board clean-up mandate.
The act of civil disobedience occurred over the weekend,
said Law School Dean John Pittenger. He arrived at school
Monday to find almost every inch of hall wall space in a six-
story building on campus covered with posters, newspapers
and.memos. The students were protesting an order by Pit-
tenger that bulletin boards be cleared of outdated materials
and signs not posted neatly. "It was unsightly and nobody
could find anything. Nobody took anything down either, so
outdated notices were everywhere. I created the policy to

* 1968 - The Big Ten started its investigation into alleged
code violations by University athletes.
* 1972 - Campus women called the Univers'ity's efforts at
stopping discrimination a purely "cosmetic attempt." E
