City council delays
homeless shelter vote

The Ann Arbor City Council voted last
night to table a proposal which would
allow a $25,000 down payment on the
controversial shelter for the city's
Council members voted 6-3 to post-
pone the decision until their April 5
SPONSORS of the decision to table
the measure said they wanted to give
the public an opportunity to voice their
concerns about the shelter.
But Larry Hunter, (D-First Ward),
said he did not support the council's
"They just, in my opinion, did not
have the courage to deal with the
decision they had to make," Hunter
HE ALSO pointed out that the council
has no power to stop the Shelter
Association, the non-profit group which
arranged to purchase the shelter, from
closing the deal on April 10. The group
purchased an abandoned church at 420
W. Huron last week.
The city had previously agreed to pay
a maximum of $7,500 per month for a
down payment on the shelter.
Although the Shelter Association
would still be able to raise the funds to
pay for the remainder of the shelter,
they would have to rely on private sour-
ces for the money, Hunter said.
Because the city had already
allocated $69,000 for the shelter before
the old church was purchased, they
should pay the down payment, Hunter
The new site is expected to house
about 25 people and could open by the
end of June. Until then, St. Andrew's
Episcopal Church will continue to
operate as a shelter for the homeless.
Arbor Haven, a shelter run by the
Salvation Army, also houses Ann Arbor
indigents. There are about 50 people
who stay in the city's shelters each

In a special meeting Sunday night,
the Washtenaw County Branch of the
American Civil Liberties Union voted
unanimously to set up a committee to
study the University's proposed student
code for non-academic conduct.
University Student Legal Services
Attorney Jonathon Rose along with
three ACLU members presented
arguments against the code to the
NO ONE IN favor of the code spoke at
Board members also voted to send a
copy of the ACLU's standard code of
student conduct to members of the
Senate Advisory Committee on Univer-
sity Affairs (SACUA).
"We have a national policy with
regard to regulations and disciplinary
procedures (for students) and we
decided to let SACUA know what the
ACLU position was on that," said Jean
King, board chairperson.
UNDER THE University proposed
code, officials could punish students for
offenses such as theft, arson, van-
dalism, sexual harassment, and "inter-
fering with normal University ac-
tivity." Sanctions could range from
expulsion to work projects.
The ACLU committee will compare
their standard student conduct
guidelines to proposed code guidlines to
determine if the University rules would
violate ACLU regulations, said King, a
Rose told the eight-member board
that the University already has
adequate means to reprimand-student
offenders and called the proposed code
"THE REMEDIES are there, (the
University) doesn't need this code,"
Incidents of student misconduct the
University has cited as evidence for
needing the code are insufficient, added
Offenses the University has pointed
to include students setting fire to
buildings or attaching razor blades to
doorknobs. But King said such exam-
ples could be punished under the
University's current system.
"I want to know what (the Univer-
sity) has said to justify this (code),"

WASHINGTON - President Reagan bestowed the nation's
highest civilian award yesterday on Whittaker Chambers, a
repentant Communist spy who helped to inspire Reagan's
own conversion to political conservatism.
Chambers, who died in 1961, and 13 other luminaries were
honored at the White House as recipients of the prestigious
Presidential Medal of Freedom.
CHAMBER'S son, John, accepted the coveted medal for
his father, a former communist whose testimony against
Alger Hiss was the springboard for the career of Richard
"At a critical moment in our nation's history, Whittaker
Chambers stood alone against the brooding terrors of our
age," said the citation read by Reagan.
For Reagan, the ceremony held a special poignancy
because the recipients included actor James Cagney, a
longtime Hollywood friend and onetime mentor.
WHILE JOHN Chambers and 12 other honorees stepped
forward to receive the medal from Reagan, the ailing
Cagney, 84, sat unsmiling in his wheelchair.
"As a giant in the world of entertainment, James Cagney
has left his mark not only on the film industry but on the
hearts of all his fellow Americans," Reagan read.
"As a great star in the same studio where I started, he was
eives top presidential honor
never too busy to hold out a hand to a young fellow trying to
get under way," the president said, adding a personal tribute
to the citation.
Chambers was the celebrated witness before the House
Committee on Un-American Activities who testified that
Hiss, a trusted State Department aide, and others in gover-
nment had passed him official secrets while he worked as a
Soviet spy during the 1930s.
HISS DENIED the charges, was twice tried for perjury a d
was convicted after his second trial in 1950 at the climax o a
legal battle still being fought by some of its partisans.
Nixon, a junior congressman on the committee, seized
Chambers' testimony as a national issue and rode it to a
Senate seat and his selection as Eisenhower's vice presiden-
tial running mate in the 1952 presidential campaign.
Senate Republican leader Howard Baker, who is retiring
from the Senate this year, also was among the medal win-
Posthumous awards were given to assassinated Egyptian
President Anwar Sadat and baseball great Jackie Robinson,
the first black in professional sports.
Since 1945, the Medal of Freedom has been presented to
more than 220 individuals for distinguished government ser-
vice, humanitarian work and other achievements.

terms: Psychology Prof. William Steb-
bins, University librarian Jean Loup,
