U'

officials' phone wires

By CLAUDIA GREEN
Students opposed to the proposed
student code of non-academic conduct
left a message with University officials
yesterday morning by phoning the of-
fices of top administrators for three
hours.
At least 80 calls were made on nine
different lines to the offices of
President Harold Shapiro, Student Ser-
vices, and Affirmative Action during
the phone campaign, according to of-
fice staff.
ONE STUDENT read a poem
protesting the code, others outlined
specific objections, and some who were
not counted, simply called and hung up.
Sponsored by "No Code," the phone
campaign was designed to put "con-
structive communication and disrup-
tive pressure" on University officials.
The calls caused a little of both. Vice
President for Student Services Henry
Johnson said the phone -calls wouldn't
help administrators develop a code
agreeable to both the Board of Regents
and students.

"IT'S HARASSMENT," Johnson
said. "So far, it hasn't been productive.
People don't give their names, so it's
hard to tell if they represent a con-
stituency."
But Johnson's secretary, Doris
Goodwin, said several of the eight
students who called her made good
points and she found one student who
read her a poem speaking out against
the code especially amusing.
The poet, LSA junior John Christen-
sen, said he told administrators and.of-
fice staff that the judical system for en-
forcing the code needed tougher stan-
dards for proving a student's guilt.
Under the proposed system, a student
could be convicted of an offense based
on insufficient evidence according to
Christensen.
"No Code" is trying to discourage the
regents from amending their bylaws in
order to adopt the code. Under the
current bylaws, the Michigan Student
Assembly and the faculty senate must
approve the code before it is passed.
MSA has already voted the code down,

but some regents have said that they
might go ahead with the bylaw change,
in order to pass the code.
Christensen and LSA junior Lee
Winkelman, who also participated in
the telephoning, said the action was
meant to show the administration the
depth of student concern about the
code.
"We are saying to the University that
as long as they shut us out of the power
system, we'll continue to be disruptive
until we achieve a power system where
we can be constructive," Winkelman
said.
Christensen and Winkelman said they
weren't too happy that secretaries were
the people mostly disrupted by the
calls.
On Friday, the group will have a
more visible protest of the code, when
they encircle the Central Campus with
blue yarn. No Code is also calling for
students to stay away from classes
from 9 a.m. to noon to show support for
the code protest.

sComputer
merger
spurs
student
questions

By TRACEY MILLER-
While some questions were answered
last night, some specifics on the merger
of LSA's and engineering's computer
department remained sketchy in a
meeting at C.C. Little.
More than 100 people turned out for
the meeting, to ask whether the merger
will mean new classes at CRISP, and
different class locations.
GIDEON FRIEDER, who will head
the new Department of Computer
Science Engineering (CSE) said there
will be no changes at this month's
CRISP line, but next year all courses
will be changed. The department will
come out with catalogues cross-listing
the courses, he said.
Frieder said students in the current

computer programs will have the
choice of continuing on their current
curriculum, or shifting to the depar-
tment's new plan in the fall, but he did.
not say how student's courses may
change under the new department.
Although engineering and LSA
students will take basic computer
classes together now, they will receive
their degrees separately.
THE UNIVERSITY'S graduate com-
puter program, Computer Information
and Control Engineering, will be
phased out and graduate students will
now take courses in the new de
tment.
Currently, LSA students take Com-
munication and Computer Sciences in

About 50 graduate students turned out on the Diag
yesterday forga short but loud rally against the pay cuts
many TAs have received this term since the University
beganwithholding taxes on tuition waivers from TA's
paychecks.
Last December, Congress failed to reinstate a federal law
which made tax-free the amount the money the University
puts toward a TA's tuition bill. Since then teaching and staff
assistants have seen an average cut in their paychecks of $75.
DURING THE rally leaders of the Graduate Employees
Organization (GEO) gathered signatures for a petition that
protests the University's action.
"We demand the immediate cessation of the tax, the return
of all income withheld, and we want it now!" said GEO
Treasurer Rick Matland.
Bill Shea, a TA for the Pilot Program who participated in
the rally yesterday, said the tax deduction has meant a $100
cut in his monthly pay. Other graduate students jeered at
University administrators for taking away their "food
money" and called upon University President Harold
Shapiro for a free lunch.
"HEY, HEY, HO, HO, tax withholdings got to go," the
group chanted before disbanding after 15 minutes.
The University is the only college in the country that is

cessation of the tax, the return
of all income withheld, and we
want it now!"

withholding taxes on tuition waivers, Matland told the crowd.
University of Oregon, The University of California at
Berkeley, and the University of Wisconsin have ignored the
tax law, Matland said.
GEO wants the University to return the money it has held
already in taxes on the waiver, even though Congress is
expected to reinstate the law this summer, said GEO
President Celeste Burke.
On a related issue, Burke said the University next week
may begin firing TAs and staff assistants who have failed to
pay thier mandatory union dues. Last month GEO gave
University personnel officials a list of 47 graduate employees
who could lose their jobs under the contract signed with the
University last December, Burke said.

never will," said Westchester County Warden Norwood
Jackson. "It's been several days." Leonard Fore, 27, of
White Plains, N.Y. swallowed the evidence March 21 after
he allegedly took the jewelry from a gas station attendant.
He was then jailed and authorities hoped they would even-.

Fore, said last week they took X-rays of the evidence and
