'U' delays proposal on code talks
The University administration will
not make a proposal tonight for
negotiating with student leaders on the
proposed student code for nonacademic
conduct, according to Scott Page,
president of the Michigan Student
Virginia Nordby, director of Affir-
mative Action, was scheduled to make
a presentation to MSA at tonight's
meeting, but MSA asked the ad-
ministration to hold off until student
leaders sit down
others to discuss
might be handled.
with Nordby and
Bill would make 'U' code illegal
(Continued from Page 1)
public colleges and universities in the
state include the following provisions
" Unrestricted use of an attorney
during all stages of a disciplinary
" A formal hearing before a jury of
the student's peers. A studenemay also
preside over the hearing;
* The right to cross-examine all wit-
" The right to appeal the decision of
the hearing panel to the school's gover-
" The right to confront accusers in all
" The right to avoid self-
" A formal hearing process that
follows the state's rules of evidence.
Eric Schnaufer, chair of MSA's code
committee, said Bullard's legislation
would make several provisions of the
University's proposed code illegal.
The latest revision of the proposed
code, for instance, limits the par-
ticipation of attorneys during a hearing
process and sets up a hearing board of
administrators and faculty members as
well as students.
THE PROPOSED code also does not
follow the formal rules of evidence
which restrict the information that may
be used'to convict a person. The rules
also say a person's guilt must be proved
"beyond a reasonable doubt."
Instead, the University would only
require "clear and convincing" eviden-
ce and leave a hearing officer to sort
out what kinds of evidence may be used
to reach a decision.
And although students are given the
right to question their witnesses under
the code, students would have to appeal
a decision to the judicial system ad-
ministrator rather than the regents.
THOMAS Easthope, associate vice
president for student services, said
Bullard's bill applies criminal law
procedures to a civil law situation
State and federal courts, he said, have
already upheld the right of universities
to use the mechanisms for trying
students described in the University's
"The courts give the universities a
great deal of leeway in setting up con-
duct codes. As long as these codes don't
violate your legal rights, the courts
pretty much leave (the schools) alone,"
The legislation, if passed, might be
thrown into court because it contradicts
previous court rulings, Easthope said.
THE BILL will be formerly in-
troduced in the House of Represen-
tatives Nov. 13.
Nextifall would be the earliest any ac-
tion would be taken on the bill, Bullard
said. No companion bill has been
introduced in the Senate.
Bullard said the amount of force he
uses to push the bill will depend on
whether the University's ad-
ministrators and students can iron out
their differences over the code.
"The real process of working out the
code has to go in the University com-
munity," he said. "But if it doesn't then
we will continue to pursue that issue on
the state level."
UNIVERSITY President Harold
Shapiro yesterday sent Page a letter
that reaffirmed the administration's of-
fer to enter "good faith" negotiations
over the guidelines for governing
student behavior outside the classroom.
Two weeks ago MSA adopted
resolutions setting conditions for talks
on the code. Assembly members asked
the administration to guarantee that
they would not ask the regents to
change their bylaw which gives MSA
the right to veto a code.
MSA also asked that the regents not
separate the code and the judicial
system. That separation would allow
the administration to pass the judiciary
without student approval.
After a meeting last Thursday, MSA
asked administrators to make a
proposal for negotiating on the code at
this week's meeting.
"I was short-sighted when I said
make a proposal Tuesday," Page said.
"I should have said 'Let's sit down and
work out some type of proposal that the
whole assembly can at least talk about."

Congress faces credit crunch
WASHINGTON - Senate and House members itching to leave the capital
to campaign are facing what will likely be the final week of the 98tp
Congress, with the federal government due to run out of cash at midnight
today and out of credit a couple of days later.
The bill containing nearly $500 billion for most departments of the goveri
nment over the next 51 weeks is entangled in a running dispute over U.S. aid
to rebels fighting the government in Nicaragua. One compromise being
studied by negotiators would allow the aid to continue for only a few months.
The measure would authorize enough credit presumably to last through',
next Sept. 30. The Treasury Department says the present credit ceiling of
$1.573 trillion will be reached before the week is out.
Unless the debt limit is raised, the government will havp no authority to
continue borrowing the $21 million an hour it needs to make up the difference
between taxes and spending.
This catch-all spending bil became necessary because Congress failed to'
approve nine of the 13 regular appropriations bills that provide money for,
Shuttle's relay system blacks out
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - The 13th space shuttle flight was hit by morel"
bad luck yesterday when a cosmic ray burst knocked out the radio relay
satellite used to send most of Challenger's voice communications and all of
its radar pictures to Earth.
More potential trouble developed when tropical storm Josephine formed'
over the Atlantic Ocean east of the Bahamas and started moving slowly
, toward Florida, threatening to disrupt Satdrday landing plans for the seven
The satellite, in an orbit 22,000 miles higher than the shuttle, was blacked
out more than seven hours by the radiation shot from the sun. That limited
the crew to only brief periods of communication with mission control as the.
ship passed over a handful of tracking stations each orbit.
Among the experiments conducted by the astronauts yesterday was another
satellite refueling exercise by Leestma and Sullivan. The transferred toxic
hydrazine between two tanks in the shuttle's cargo bay.
Bomb rips U.S. missile makers
BRUSSELS, Belgium - A bomb tore through a European headquarters of
the U.S. defense contractor Honeywell at dawn yesterday, wrecking fur-
niture, ceilings and halls but causing no injuries.
The blast, just several hundred yards from NATO headquarters, was the,
third in a week against foreign businesses in Brussels and was claimed by
the same mysterious group calling itself the "Communist Combatant Cells."..
In a letter delivered to a Brussels television station, the group said the
Honeywell offices were bombed because it "actively involved in the con-.
struction program of (U.S.-made) cruise missiles."-
NATO deployment of the weapons in Western Europe has provoked
massive protests across the continent.
Lawrence said American divisions of Honeywell make radar alternators
for cruise missiles to control their altitude during flight and is a subcontrac-
tor for in-flight stabilization mechanisms for the Pershing.
Iraqi attack on tanker kills 6
ABU DHABI,'United Arab Emirates - Iraqi warplanes yesterday at-
tacked a Hong Kong-owned supertanker 40 miles south of Iran's main oil exc
port terminal in the Persian Gulf, killing six crewmen and injuring nine
others, officials said.
Iraq, which has been at war with Iran for more than four years, claimed
its warplanes destroyed "two large naval targets" but shipping sources said
they knew of only one attack.
Lloyd's of London and Gulf sources said the Liberian-registered World
Knight was attacked at 11:15 a.m. as it headed for the Kharg Island oil ter-
minal to pick up Iranian oil.
The attack shattered a three-week lull in the so-called "tanker war," in
which an estimated 40 commercial vessels have been damaged since March.
Iraq made clear it would enforce its blockade of Iranian oil exports, aimed
at cutting off Iran's oil revenues and forcing Tehran to the negotiating table.
Peres, Shultz discuss economy
WASHINGTON - Shimon Peres, the new Israeli prime minister, opened
talks yesterday with the Reagan administration on his country's economic
problems and prospects for withdrawing Israeli troops from Lebanon.
Peres, who took office less than a month ago, began the three-day visit to
the capital with a 2/2-hour meeting with Secretary of State George Shultz,
who is an economist.
Israel's soaring inflation, now about 400 percent a year, is the principal
topic of the three-day Peres visit. The Reagan administration is seeking
assurances that Israel is addressing its problems in a satisfactory and com-
prehensive way before deciding how to help.
Among the measure under consideration are, U.S. underwriting of the
weak Israeli shekel in world money market; stepped-up Pentagon pur-
chases of Israeli military equipment, including anti-tank devices, artillery
pieces and ammunition; and accelerated delivery of U.S. economic aid.
The new government in Jerusalem has slashed $1 billion from its $23
billion budget and banned the import of automobiles, stereos and other
luxury items. It may ask the administration to deliver later this month the
$1.2 billion in U.S. economic assistance due in January.
