Students may lose

right to vote on code

By CLAUDIA GREEN
To insure that the University has a
code governing students' conduct
outside the classroom, the regents may
change their rules to bypass some of the
code's most vehement opponents.
Under current University rules, the
Michigan Student Assembly must
approve the controversial code of non-
academic conduct before it can be
enforced.
BUT UNIVERSITY President Harold
Shapiro has sent a letter to the regents
saying the board may have to change
the bylaw requiring MSA's
participation, if they want to pass the
code.
"I will continue to seek to negotiate
with the leaders of the Michigan
Student Assembly, but at this time it does

not appear that they are interested in
any Code or System," Shapiro said in a
rough draft of the letter obtained by the
Daily. "It may be necessary either to
amend regents' bylaw 7.02 to take away
the Michigan Student Assembly's
ratification authority or to revoke it,''
the letter continued.
SHAPIRO verified yesterday that a
final version of the letter - including
the bylaw change section - was sent to
the regents before their meeting last
week.
MSA President Mary Rowland, an
outspoken opponent of the proposed
code, reacted angrily to the possible
bylaw change. "I think it's so blatantly
undemocratic that it would occur to
them to change (the bylaw)," she said.
Rowland and other code critics,

charge that the proposed guidelines
place the University in the role of a
police agent and allow the University,
not the courts, to judge a student's guilt
or innocence. They also fear certain
parts of the code, such as the provision
against "interfering with a normal
University or University-sponsored
activity," could be used to stifle dissent
on campus.
THE CODE allows the University to
punish students for such crimes as
arson, sexual harassment, assault,
theft and vandalism - acts which go
unpunished under current rules,
officials say.
Shapiro said last night that he is not
"currently proposing" the bylaw
change, but he will recommend the
change if he "came to believe.. . that

we should adopt such a code."
A Daily poll of the regents shows that
at least half would approve such a
request. Four of the regents said they
aire willing to change the bylaw, two
refused comment, and two were
unavailable yesterday.
"IN GENERA t f the students try to
totally frustrate (Me issue) by refusing
to cooperate, I think that the bylaw will
be amended," said Regent Thomas
Roach (D-Saline).
Regent Deane Baker (R-Ann Arbor)
agreed with Roach. "We have an
obligation to maintain some sense of
order in a society," Baker said. "We
can't be neutral about that. You've got
to establish some system that provides
protection within the University."
IF THE REGENTS do eventually

amend the bylaw, they will also remove
another voice from the decision-making
process - the faculty. An alteration of+
the bylaw would eliminate the faculty
assembly's right to veto the proposal. ;
"I think it would be ill-advised for the
regents to step around the faculty and
Faculty as

the students to pass this code," said

Communications Prof. Herbert
Hildebrandt, who chairs the faculty
Senate Assembly. "But everyone has
the right to change their bylaws. I may

Members of the University's top

making more information available on

conduct.
Copies of the proposed code should be

agreement
From AP and UPI
LAUSANNE, Switzerland -
Lebanese Christian and Moslem
leaders appeared to have reached
agreement lat night on power sharing
plans, but one called it a "vague com-
promise."
Walid Jumblatt, chief of the Druse
militia, told reporters of the emerging
compromise shortly before the
delegation leaders met in a formal
session that could wind up their recon-
ciliation talks.
THE MEETING of the leaders of the
nine most influential groups in Lebanon
and Syrian and Saudi observers had
been postponed earlier, but began at
10:12 p.m. (4:12 p.m. EST).
Former President Camille Chamoun,
leader of the Lebanese Front coalition
of Christian groups, said "We tlhink it
will be the final session."
Jumblatt said he was disappointed
with the proposed compromise, "but
one has to be a realist."

Marquette,
Xavier next

By PAUL HELGREN
Clutch Wolverine free throws iced
last night's 83-70 victory over Marquet-
te at Crisler Arena last night. They also
kept Michigan in the friendly confines
of Crisler Arena for the next round of
the National Invitation Tournament.
Michigan will host Xavier 8:00 p.m.
Thursday night. Xavier knocked off
Nebraska 58-57 last night to advance.
Had Nebraska got past Xavier, the'
Cornhuskers would have played host to
Michigan.
THE Wolverines kept the home-court
advantage by blowing past the
Warriors with four minutes left in the
game. They held a 6462 advantage
before Tim McCormick scored five of
his game-high 21 points in a 10-point
Wolverine run. After that, the contest
became a foul line 'em up game, and
Michigan responded by nailing 14 of its
last 15 free throws.
"It's good to see Tim McCormick
give us a strong game," said an ob-
viously pleased Bill Frieder. "He
played really tough in there."
McCormick's strong game aided by

fellow front-court men Rich Rellford,
Roy Tarpley and Butch 'Wade. The
four big men combined for 57 of
Michigan's 83 points.
THE WARRIORS displayed front-
court prowess themselves, as forwards
Dwayne Johnson and Marc Marotta
gave Michigan an end-to-end battle.
Marotta, finished with 16 points and
seven rebounds and Johnson notched 15
points and six boards. Marotta praised
his opponents.
"(Michigan) was a good ball club.
They're one of the most talented - if
not the most talented - teams in the
Big Ten."
It was Marotta and. Johnson who
pushed the Warriors out to an early
lead in the first half. Marquette held a
15-9 lead before the Wolverines clawed
back and played them even. But a 13-2
Wolverine spurt at the end of the half
gave them a comfortable 39-31 edge at
the half.
"THAT RUN really gave us a lot of
confidence going in the half,"
remarked Wolverine Antoine Joubert,

Accusations fly on eve.
of key Illinois primary

CHICAGO (UPI) - Gary Hart,
hunting votes on the eve of the crucial
Illinois primary, suggested yesterday
that Walter Mondale's background
could get America into another
Vietnam. Mondale said the senator
doesn't have the experience to be
president.
The two Democratic front-runners,
battling civil rights activist Jesse
Jackson for the heavy black vote,
stepped up their personal attacks the
day before the election - a key battle in
a big Midwest industrial state for 171
delegates to the Democratic National
Convention.
THROUGHOUT the presidential
campaign Mondale has stressed that
his three decades in government,
including a term as vice president,
make him more qualified for the White
House than Hart, who has been in the
Senate 10 years.
"The experience issue cuts both
ways," Hart fired back. "The question

'If (Mondale) in fact believes there is a
military solution to our problems in Central
America, I don't think he learned a great
deal in Vietnam.'

"So you want to know how to take my
job, huh?" Channel 2 News Anchor-
woman Kathy Adams asked an audien-
ce of 40 students at Bursley Hall Sun-
day.
For starters, "you gotta work your
tail off," Adams warned students.
"Start off small if you want to become
big."
SPEAKING at a media seminar
sponsored by the Bursley Hall Board of
Governors, seven local media
celebrities, including Adams, gave
students tips on how to break into the
business.
Experience is the key, said Murray
Feldman, a reporter at Channel 2 in

"If he in fact believes there is a
military solution to our problems in
Central America, I don't think he
learned a great deal from Vietnam,"
Hart said, adding Mondale was one of
the last Democratic leaders to oppose
the war.
"THAT suggests that in Lebanon and
in Central" America and the Persian
Gulf that he may believethere is a
military solution to a fundamentally

non-military problem" he said.
"With the enormous and dangerous
crises looming ahead ... can we afford
Mr. Mondale's brand of 'experienced'
leadership? he asked.
As he campaigned in Chicago,
Mondale branded Hart a "late comer"
to the civil rights movement, hitting
hard on his theme that the senator from
Colorado is not qualified for the White
House.

YOU ARE HOW you drive, and cars barreling aggressively
down a freeway may be steered by people who take
that same approach to life, a UCLA professor of psychiatry
says. "The way we drive may be a recognition of an aspect
of our personalities-how we deal with life," says Dr. Ar-
nold Gilberg, associate clinical professor of psychiatry at
the UCLA School of Medicine. "I'm not sure we could make
a global statement. But we could say that people who feel

IT SEEMS some pranksters got a wee bit carried away with
the Go Green, St. Patrick's day spirit over the weekend.
Perhaps they had consumed too much green beer
when they replaced the American flag on
the Diag with an Irish one. But not only did the little
leprechauns replace the flag, they also severed the rope
used to move the flag up and down the pole, making it just a
tad difficult to change flags. According to University

replacing the sidewalks would not help,.they said, the only
solution would be if "we could put a big umbrella over the
whole campus."
