Greeks
By CLAUDIA GREEN
The University's proposed code of non-1
academic conduct is raising the ire of a pair of
organizations which are usually silent when it
comes to campus politics.
Recently, members of the 49 campus
fraternities and sororities have spoken out
against the code saying that the guidelines
would threaten their autonomy from the
University.
YESTERDAY, representatives of the

, co-ops
Panhellenic Association, the sororities'
goverining board, sent a letter to the
University Council and affirmative action
director Virginia Nordby expressing "firm
opposition" to the proposed code.
Members of the Inter-Cooperative Council
which oversees the 27 co-ops also voted
unanimously last month to oppose the draft of
the code. ICC President Marcel Salive, who has
been an outspoken critic on the proposed
guidelines, says the code violates the co-ops'

attack proposed code

policy of self-regulation.
Although the fraternities' governing board,
the Inter-Fraternity Council, has not written a
letter "the IFC does not see a need for the code
and doesn't want the University meddling in
Greek affairs," said IFC President Harry
Walters, an LSA senior.
"FRATERNITIES and sororities are usually
labelled as conservative groups," said LSA
junior Gretchen Matz, vice president of the
Panhellenic Association. "When you're

labelled as a conservative group, you're taken
as accepting of things, and that is not the case
here.
"I think (the letter) is showing that
opposition is really broad-based."
Walters, Matz, and Salive object to the
proposed code that would allow the University
to punish students for such acts as arson, theft,
vandalism, and some ' types of civil
disobedience.
CURRENTLY, the University relies on civil

and criminal authorities to handle such
incidents, but under the code an internal
judiciary would be appointed to enforce the
guidelines.
Fraternities and sororities already have
internal rules and disciplinary procedures
governing such acts, Matz said. The 17 campus
sororities are owned by national chapters
which also have conduct rules and "when
combined with the existing civil justice system
these controls eliminate the need for further

Student lobbying angers GEO

By THOMAS MILLER
Angry members of the University's teaching
assistant's union last night charged that a graduate
student who went to Washington to lobby for the
passage of a bill making TAs tuition breaks tax
exempt overstepped her authority.
The controversy surfaced last night at a press con-
ference held by Rackham Student Government
(RSG) presidential candidate Angela Gantner, who
went to the capitol on March 26 to speak 'with
congressmen about the bill.
UNIVERSITY TAs have been fighting to regain tax

money they lost due to the expiration this year of an
IRS tax code which had previously exempted from
federal withholding taxes the tuition break which TAs
receive.
As a result, TAs have had to pay the government an
average of $75 more a month - money TAs say is
vital to their survival.
Graduate Employees' Organization members at
last night's meeting attacked Gantner for trying to
represent graduate teaching assistants interests,
because the union claims the problem is within their
jurisdiction as the legal voice for TAs.

"WE'D BE glad to cooperate with RSG, but it looks
like an end-run around GEO to make RSG an alter-
native to GEO," said union steering committee
member Gene Goldenfeld.
The union also charged that Gantner was ill-
qualified to handle the task of lobbying to Congress.
"She didn't even know who the congressman was
from the district let alone who the senators from
Michigan were," Goldenfeld said. "Before she left,
she spent six or seven hours on the phone with Rick

.Mondale wins Pa., takes
control of nomination race

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -Walter Mondale easily won the
Pennsylvania primary yesterday, defeating a fading Gary
Hart and rolling past the halfway mark in his quest for the
delegates needed to capture the Democratic presidential
-nomination.
Mondale called it a "very strong win" and said he had
established new momentum. Hart arriving in his hometown
of Denver, said, "We are headed into our territory, folks."
With 55 percent of the vote in, Mondale had 45 percent of
the vote to 34 percent for Hart.
The Rev. Jesse Jackson apparently was winning in
Philadelphia and hoped for a strong third-place showing
statewide that would underscore his still-increasing clout
within the party.
Mondale claimed victory and said, "I'm encouraged to
believe that what I have been saying about where I would
take the country, the differences as the public perceives
them, is, helping me gain momentum toward the
nomination."
He called it "a very strong win."
The returns, from 55 percent of the state's 9,560 precincts,
were:

" Mondale, 403,074 or 45 percent.
" Hart, 300,895, 34 percent.
" Jackson, 177;662, 20 percent.
Minor candidates shared the remainder of the vote with
several Democratic dropouts. President Reagan ran
unopposed in the Republican primary.
CBS News said its poll of voters as they left the election
places indicated Mondale trailed Jackson in Philadelphia
and Hart in its suburbs, but led elsewhere.
According to the network exit polls, Mondale expanded his
traditional Democratic labor and blue-collar constituency
and began for the first time to cut into the young urban
professional "yuppie"support that had carried Hart to
earlier primary victories.
And while Hart had been emphasizing in campaign
speeches that he was the more likely candidate to defeat
President Reagan in November, respondents in the NBC
News poll picked Mondale as the stronger candidate against
Reagan by a 2-1 ratio.
With no primary elections and just four caucuses coming
up in the next three weeks, the former vice president looked
back at the first half of the primary season and said, before
the polls closed here, "I win some; he wins some."

TODAY--
The Pizza Connection
BIGGER AND 'juicier than even the French Con-
nection, Italy's most wanted criminal used a
Midwestern "pizza connection" to distribute the
largest amount of heroin ever smuggled into the

communities. Federal officials caught onto the pizza pact
by eavesdropping on seemingly innocuous conversations
about cleaning pizza parlor tables or delivering flour that
were used as codes for drug deals. "Oven," for example,
was the secret word for a kilogram of heroin. FBI agents
reportedly saw suspects carrying a variety of sacks, bags,
pizza boxes and briefcases around, exchanging money for
pizza boxes of heroin. At one end of the pizza connection
was Gaetano Badalamenti, "the most wanted man in Italy"
and leader of a Sicilian Mafia family. At the other end was
Salvatore Catalano, whom authorities have labeled "top
chef" of the Bonnano crime family of New York.

traditional sort of guy, he's picked up the tab for the 25
women he's gone out with since the story ran - even flying
one woman from Indiana to Boston. "We wrote letters to
each other, and she sent me pictures," Butkus said of the
Indiana woman. "I thought she was Mrs. Right, but I was
wrong," he said. "I held a big red balloon so she'd know me
when she walked off the ramp at Logan Airport, but when I
saw her, she looked like a middle linebacker for the Pit-
tsburgh Steelers. I said to myself, 'There's the beef,"' quip-
ped the still wifeless man, adding that the airfare and dates
have run up a bill of over $600.
