Student leaders fight 'U' code
(Continued from Page 1)
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
BUT PERHAPS the most formidable
task facing students opposed to the code
is preserving the little direct control
over the code which they possess.
So far, the key to effective student
opposition has rested or Regents' Bylaw
7.02, which states that MSA and the
faculty must approve any conduct rules
University adminstrators and
several regents, however, have already
said they may suspend or abolish the
bylaws in order to pass the code without
Caught in what he calls a classic
"catch-22," Page, more than any of the
other leaders, has been forced to walk a
thin line between opposing the code and
not appearing inflexible.
Working with the administration to
remove some of the parts which these
students oppose would tacitly be admit-
ting that "we're not going to win the
fundamental point that there shouldn't
be a code" at all, said Page.
On the other hand, a hard-line stance
against any code whatsoever would en-
courage the administration to cut direct
student involvement out of the process,
the only way students can reject the
code is through large protests and ac-
"If the students stand up and say, 'We
don't want this,' they will win. That's
all there is to it," said Page.
Tomorrow: What role will the
All the leaders agree, however, that faculty play?
Nobel Prize winners warn of
WASHINGTON (AP) - Nineteen Nobel Prize win-
ners and the leaders of about 100 of the country's en-
vironmental and arms control organizations joined
yesterday in a warning that mankind faces extinction
either through a nuclear or an environmental
catastrophe "unless humanity changes its ways."
At the start of a five-day conference on "The Fate
of the Earth," they made public a policy statement
declaring that an exploding global population and the
nuclear arms race are both threats to the future.
"WHAT NUCLEAR war could do in 50 to 150
minutes an exploding population assaulting the Ear-
th's life-support systems could do in 50 to 150 years,"
says the statement, signed by winners of Nobels in
physics, medicine, chemistry and economics and 175
leaders of environmental and peace groups.
Shaped at meetings in Washington, San Francisco
and New York and in round-robin exchanges through
the mails over the last two months, the statement
lays out a common course of action to influence
Stanford University biologist Paul Ehrlich, an ex-
pert on populaton, called the conference "the most
important meeting that's ever been held on Earth."
He told reporters the session would not endorse a
candidate in the plresidential race but that he per-
sonally would back any opponent to President
Reagan. He termed Reagan blind to the threats of a
nuclear end to the world or a population explosion
that will exhaust the globe's resources.
"I make no bones about it," Ehrlich said. "I am a
Earth s fate
registered Republican but I cannot imagine a
Democratic candidate I would not prefer over Ronald
Reagan simply because Reagan pushes the wrong
way on virtually every issue I'm interested in and
seens to be totally disconnected from what's going on
in the world. Ronald Reagan's policies toward the
environment could shove us down the drain sometime
in the next 50 to 150 years."

A second man was arrested Tuesday
in connection with the robbery of a bank
in Briarwood Mall. The 38-year-old
Detroit man was arraigned yesterday
in the 15th district court.
The suspect who allegedly carried a
sawed off shotgun during the robbery
was unarmed at the time of his arrest
and none of the stolen money was.
Last Wednesday Ann Arbor police
made their first arrest in the incident
when they found Sunny Wilson outside
his Ann Arbor home. An undetermined
amount of cash taken in the robbery,
was recovered with Wilson's arrest.
Most of the money that allegedly had
been stolen could not be spent because
it was covered with red dye. The
package of dye had been hidden in one
of the bags of cash and exploded as two
men were fleeing the Great Lakes
Federal Savings bank, September 7.
A passer-by who saw the get-away
car was able to provide police with a
partial description of the suspects and
part of the license plate number. This
information led to the arrests of the two
U.S.-Vatican ties challenged
WASHINGTON-The United States' formal diplomatic ties with the
Vatican were challenged in federal court yesterday by religious leaders who
said the move tramples on constitutional guarantees of separation of church
"The glamour of a popular president and a popular pope have blinded
many in our land to the bad public policy generated" by the new diplomatic
relationship, said Robert Maddox, a Baptist minister and head of Americans
United for Separation of Church and State.
The organization and a coalition of religious groups filed suit in U.S. '
District Court in Philadelphia, selected for its symbolism as the birthplace
of the American Revolution.
The religious leaders-including some who support President Reagan for
re-election-said their chances of winning are excellent. They said they in-
tended to convince the courts that the issue is not foreign policy but
domestic: spending taxpayer dollars to promote one religion over all others.
"We believe this formal relationship between the state and one church is
absolutely improper in a nation where the principle of church-state
separation has long been enshrined in constitutional law and in the hearts:of
the American people," said Maddox.
G.M.-U.A.W. talks stagnate
DETROIT-Talks between the United Auto Workers and General Motors
Corp. appeared at an impasse yesterday as nearly 30,000 workers at four
more major plants walked off the job, bringing to nearly 100,000 the number
of union members on strike against the giant automaker.
In a statement late in the afternoon, the union said "virtually no progress
was made" in the day's bargaining. UAW president Owen Bieber met with
top union officers to update them on the talks.
A union spokesman said that to his knowledge, there had been no meetings
between the UAW and GM officials. "Some meetings were held on minor
issues," spokesman David Mitchell said.
It was the first time either side has admitted that the negotiations have
appeared to reach a standstill. There has been no comment from the com-
pany since Sept. 10.
Gain in personal income slows
WASHINGTON-Americans' personal income in August posted the
smallest gain in three months while new housing construction plunged 12.8
percent, the government said yesterday, as the economy gave further signs
of a rapid slowdown.
The new reports sent many economists scurrying to revise their predic-
tions for economic growth for the rest of 1984, but the Reagan administration
said it was sticking by earlier forecasts.
The Commerce Department said Americans' personal income rose .5 per-
cent in August, the smallest gain since May.
The report showed that Americans were also not, as eager to spend their
earnings. Personal consumption spending rose by only .1 percent, matching.
the meager increase of July. Early in the year, spending grew as much as
1.8 percent in a single month:
The government said construction of new homes in August plummeted to
an annual rate of 1.54 million units, the lowest level since December 1982w
when the country was beginning to pull out of the long recession.
Soviets release American sailors
WASHINGTON - Sailors of the U.S. Coast Guard cutter Sherman arrived
at a rendezvous point in the Bering Strait yesterday and boarded the 120-foot
supply ship, the Freida K, the State Department reported.
"The Coast Guard is now on the Frieda K," the State Department press -of-
ficer said. There was no immediate word on the five American seamen whoe
crewed the supply ship and who have been in Soviet custody since the vessel
apparently wandered into the Soviet waters near the Diomede Islands in the
strait and asked a Soviet naval vessel for directions.
Sonda McCarty, a State Department spokeswoman, said the Coast
Guard's mission to pick up the five Americans was "going according to
State Department officials monitored radio and telephone com-
munications with Coast Guard officers aboard the Sherman, who reported
the sea in the area was calm and winds at 10 knots.
The five seamen had been held in a hotel at Urelik, a remote port in
The exchange agreed to by Soviet officials is to take' place midway bet-
ween that port and the American port of Gambel on Alaska's St. Lawrence

Reagan's steel import decision
WASHINGTON - Saying there is "terrible hurt" in the country, United
Steelworkers President Lynn Williams criticized President Reagan steel
import decision yesterday and predicted steelworkers will vote against him.
"I think the future of the steel industry remains in jeopardy," Williams
told a news conference. "I am deeply disappointed in the president's failure
to grant prompt import relief to the domestic steel industry."
Reagan Tuesday refused to grant import protection sought by American
steel makers but promised to seek voluntary agreements with exporting
natons to prevent "surges" of steel into the United States. He rejected a
proposal backed by the steelworkers union that would have limited steel im-
ports to 15 percent of the U.S. market.
Williams said the United States, unlike other major world powers, seems
willing "to let the most basic industry of an industrial nation slip into
