Pro posed
The proposed student code for non-academic con-
duct inspired heated debate yesterday, as Com-
munications Prof. William Colburn and Michigan
Student Assembly President Mary Rowland clashed
at Campus Meet the Press.
MSA strongly opposes the code which would allow
the University to take action against students for ac-
tions outside the classroom such as arson,
harassment, and interfering with University ac-
COLBURN, a member of the University Council
which drafted the code, told the audience of 45 that
the University cannot take action against students
under the current rules. He cited a list of 6,000 crimes
by students which "we have no means to deal with."
But Rowland said the code is too broad, and
dangerously increases the University's authority
over students' lives.

code take's a beating

From AP and UPI
OTTAWA - Canada's flamboyant
prime minister, Pierre Elliott Trudeau,
announced yesterday he was retiring
after nearly 16 years in office.
Trudeau came to power in April 1968
at age 48, succeeding Nobel Peace
Prize winner Lester Pearson as
Canadian prime minister and leader of
the Liberal Party. After four election
victories and one short-lived defeat, his
15 years in office made him the longest-
serving leader of a Western country.
leader of our great party has been one
of the joys of my life. But I now feel this
is the appropriate time from someone
else to assume this challenge,"
Trudeau said in a letterto Liberal Par-
ty President Iona Campagnolo.
Stepping down as leader of Canada's
Liberal Party automatically means
Trudeau will leave the post of prime
minister. It was not clear when the
resignation would take effect.
Asked why he picked yesterday to
resign, he said:
"WHY TODAY? Well, because it's a
good day," Trudeau told reporters out-
side his Parliament Hill office. "It's the
first day of the rest of my life.
"I had a good day Tuesday ... and it
seemed to be a good day to have the last
Trudeau recently met in Moscow with
the Soviet Union's new leader, Konstan-
tin Chernenko, as part of a series of
visits to world capitals on a self-styled
international peace mission aimed at
nuclear disarmament,

'(The University Council) was
surprised that this code, which
we were putting together for
the students' benefit, met with
such animosity. We want
student reaction and input.'
- William Colburn
Communications Prof.
"There are legai means available to deal with these
students," Rowland said.
ROWLAND SAID she is not opposed to the idea of a

code, but said the current proposal excludes students
from too much of the decision-making.
"If it's for students, it should be governed by studen-
ts. If it's a student-faculty code, then students and
faculty should govern it," she said.
Colburn said the opposition to the code has surprised
him, and expressed a willingness to make com-
'(THE UNIVERSITY Council) was surprised that
this code, which we were putting together for studen-
ts' benefit, met with such animosity. We want studen-
reaction and input," he said.
Colburn called charges that the code is aimed at
stifling dissent on campus, "pure nonsense."
"We had the code written, typed and sent off before
any of the sit-ins took place (last) year," he said.

... ready to step down
Speculation had been rife for months
that Trudeau, 64, who has been
Canadian prime minister for all but
nine 'months of the last 16 years, was
preparing to step aside.
No clear successor has emerged.
Trudeau said in his letter to Cam-
pagnolo that he would remain as prime
minister until a leadership convention
could be held.

BORJA, Spain (UPI) - A U.S. Air
Force transport plane on a training
mission crashed into a snowswept
mountain in Spain while attempting an
emergency landing, killing all 17
Americans aboard and a Spanish of-
ficer, officials said yesterday.
The wreckage of the plane, a Her-
cules C-130 turbo-prop, was found by a
search team some 12 hours after it went
down about two miles northwest of the

THE PLANE was part of the 435th
Tactical Airlift Wing based at Rhein
Main Air Force base near Frankfurt,
West Germany and was flying a night-
time parachute drop training mission
at the time of the crash.
During the training maneuvers, the
plane was based at the U.S. Air Force
base at Zaragoza in northeastern Spain.
The crash site, accessible only by
helicopter, was reported about 35 miles
northwest of Zaragoza and some 10
miles from the plane's parachute drop

Petitioners protest GEO dues

Angry non-unionized teaching assistants began a petition
drive this week to protest the Graduate Employees
Organization's (GEO) mandatory fee for all staff and
teaching assistants.
Under GEO's contract, both union and non-union teaching
assistants must pay dues or risk losing their jobs. The
petition is asking that the fees be voluntary.
ONLY 637 of the University's 1,700 teaching and staff
assistants were GEO members last term, but less than tw.o-
thirds of the non-members paid the mandatory fees.
Last month GEO leaders started cracking down on TAs
who failed to pay union dues by threatening to have the
University fire them.
Although non-unionized TAs have always been required to
pay GEO dues under the contract, the union hasn't enforced
the policy in the past.

INSTEAD GEO focused its attention on negotiating a con-
tract with the University to replace the 1976 agreement. But
since a two-year accord was reached:last November, GEO
has been trying to build its strength through recruiting new
members and collecting unpaid dues.
Today the GEO Steering Committee had planned to notify
employees who haven't paid union dues that termination
procedures would begin if they didn't comply within ten days.
But the union instead decided to mail a second round of war-
ning letters, said GEO Vice President Jane Holzka. TAs
received a first set of letters last month.
THE sudden enforcement sparked 20 students to form the
petition drive to change GEO from a "closed" to "open" shop
which would give non-union members a choice in supporting

LSA profs
reject list
of teaching

It's a "faculty code of conduct" to
some LSA professors, that is much too
restrictive and may even spur students
to sue their teachers.
They sharply criticized teaching
standards proposed by the LSA Joint
Student Faculty Policy Committee at a
February 7 meeting and sent the com-
mittee back to draft a more watered-
down proposal.
"THE FACULTY just doesn't want to
be told what it should do," said English
Prof. Eric Rabkin.
The criticism has taken committee
members by surprise. They see the
guidelines simply as suggestions which
have caused unexpected alarm.
"The faculty is just too insecure,"

said LSA senior Dane Myers. "If they
were doing the things they should be,
then they wouldn't be worried about en-
ACCORDING TO the committee's
recommendations, faculty should be
more available in office hours, hand
out syllabi and class outlines at the
beginning of the course, critique all
work that students hand in, and speak
English fluently except in advanced
foreign language courses.
Near Eastern Studies Prof. Louis
Orlin first proposed the guidelines in
September, as a way to improve the
quality of LSA teaching.
"I have been in counseling for more
than 10 years and I have heard some of
