up brawl at
Taco Bell
Ann Arbor police officials broke up a fight between
more than 20 persons, most of them students, at the Taco
Bell restaurant on East University Street early Saturday
morning. The fight may have resulted from racial ten-
sions, according to several restaurant employees.
No one was arrested in the incident which started after
a white male University student threw *a half-eaten
burrito at a black male standing at the counter, said a
Witness who asked not to be identified.
THE TWO men began arguing and shouting racial in-
sults while friends of the men tried unsuccessfully to
restrain them, the witness said.
"It immediately occured to us that this would be a
racial fight," the man said. "It was made clear "(through
the shouting) that the burrito was thrown because he was

parties had already left the restaurant, said Ann Arbor.
Police Sgt. Harold Tinsey. The officers classified the in-
cident as a "food fight" because "no one wished to sign a
omplaint," Tinsey said.
SATURDAY morning's incident is part of a recent in-
crease in violence by students who flock to the restaurant
after local bars close on weekends, said a Taco Bell
manager who agreed to talk under the condition that his
name wouldn't be used.
"Everyone (in the restaurant) after 10 p.m. can be con-
sidered dangerous," he said.

was not supposed to take the last shot.
"We wanted to hit Bobby (Beecher) on the high
post," he explained. "If Bobby had the shot, he had
the green light to take it. If not, (he was to) pop it
out to the guard who would try to press the ball
inside, preferably to Perry Young. I thought Perry
set a good screen, made a good pivot, and I thought
he had his men beat. Tim did not see him and he
took a shot."

Special to the Daily
NEW YORK - The experts say that Michian is a
front-running team. They all know that the
Wolverines can't make a last-minute comeback.
They also say that when Eric Turner plays poorly
Michigan loses.
LAST NIGHT'S 78-75 Wolverine victory at
Madison Square Garden over a formidable Virginia-
Tech squad proved the experts wrong.
It also put Bill Frieder's team in the NIT finals
with a 22-10 record.
The Hokies possessed a 75-74 lead and the ball
with 1:09 remaining when Roy Tarpley, who led
Michigan with 23 points fouled VYU's Perry Young,
who was going up for an easy lay-up. When the 6-5
junior missed both of his foul shots, a potential
disaster had turned to opportunity.
Keith Colbert thenfouled Tarpley at the :45 mark.
The sophomore center calmly sank a pair to set-up
one of those last-second plays that have plagued the
Wolverines all season.
AFTER calling two time-outs, the Hokies set up a
final shot which junior guard Tim Lewis missed
from 14 feet. A Tarpley rebound and Antoine
Joubert lay-in set off the celebration. This one was
not to be a repeat of the heartbreaks against Ohio
State and at Northwestern.
Virginia Tech coach Charley Moir said that Lewis

half while the Wolverines made only 14 of 37 from
the field.
"I was getting upset because he. (Curry) was
making so many," said Joubert. "I was trying to
take him out of his rhythm in the second half."

Linguistics to contitnue
as LSA department


The University's Linguistics Depart-
ment will remain intact for at least one
more year, LSA Dean 'Peter Steiner
said yesterday during a closed meeting
of department members.
Late last week, Interim Chairman
Eric Rabkin confirmed rumors that
changing the linguistics department in-
to only an LSA program was under con-
sideration, but Steiner said yesterday,
"We felt we couldn't make a change
without knowing what to make a
change to."
PAZ NAYLOR, an assistant
professor of linguistics, said that she
and many of her colleagues were
"stunned" when they heard Steiner's

Naylor said. "Now we feel a relief
because we have been given more time
Steiner also disclosed yesterday that

department from 1968-1971, will replace

ALTHOUGH Steiner said the College

planned," he did suggest four
possibilities for the future of the

Faculty discuss code with Frye

Members of the University faculty governing board met
behind closed doors yesterday with a top administrator and
discussed the proposed student code for non-academic con-
Although faculty members would not disclose what they
discussed with Vice President for Academic Affairs and
Provost Billy Frye, some called the meeting "reassuring."
LAST WEEK members of the Senate Advisory Committee
on University Affairs (SACUA) said they were concerned
that the University had not made enough copies of the
proposed code available to students.
SACUA members also said they feared that students had
not played a big enough role in drafting the code.
But after meeting with Frye yesterday Psychology Prof.
Donald Brown said "What we, were told was quite

BY PROPOSING the code, "no one is suggesting that we go
back to in loco parentis, with deans of women and deans of
men. It wouldn't work today," Brown said.
Under the code, students could be punished by the Univer-
sity for such crimes as arson, sexual harassment, assault,
theft and vandalism. The code has been strongly opposed by
student groups.
SACUA meets monthly in closed meetings with Frye and
University President Harold Shapiro.
"WE SIMPLY talked with (Frye)," said Prof. Herbert
Hildebrandt whose term as SACUA chairman ended yester-
day. "The administration is receptive to changes from a wide
diversity of persons."
Hildebrandt, a professor of business and communication,
was replaced by Public Health Prof. Morton Hilbert.
