In College Park,
they like the code
By SUE BARTO
Picture a campus, a public college like The
niversity of Michigan and about the same
size, where students not only helped adopt and
administer a student code of non-academic
conduct, but they overwhelmingly continue to
support it four years after it was implemented.
You have pictured The University of
ALTHOUGH THE number of students ex-
pelled and suspended has mushroomed since
the university adopted a code in 1980 covering
,both academic and non-academic behavior,
Maryland students say they do not find the
system unjust or oppressive.
Rather, they boast of "a higher standard of
behavior" set by the code and a judicial system
which they say is fair and efficient.
After adopting its code in 1980 to address
many problems with cheating and general
unruliness among some students, The
Univesity of Maryland found itself at the
forefront of a resurgence of student discipline
among many colleges.
THE PRIMARY author and architect of
Maryland's code, Gary Pavela, a legal advisor
to the Chancellor for Student Services, has
written several articles about the school's code
for such publications as The Chronicle of
Higher Education. The school's code and
judicial system has also been used as a model
by many other universities, including The
University of Michigan.
"It's a good system," said Maryland fresh-
man Sanford Horn, who like many of the
students interviewed said the system provided
adequate protection of student's rights and
even credited the code with instilling a certain
pride among the student body.
"I honestly believe the university has every
right to step in and act firmly. . . if a student
violates a rule on campus," said Horn, a
student government official.
MANY MARYLAND students expressed
surprise at Michigan students' opposition to
adopting a code of conduct.
"It was generally well received (at
Maryland)" said Michael Bishop, who spent
two-and-one-half years on Maryland's student
judiciary when he was an undergraduate. He is
currently a graduate philosophy student at
"Gary (Pavela) was very open about what
went into it," he said. "He was very non-
combative. He asked for input from students,
faculty, and administrators."
BISHOP SAID the code "heightened
awareness" among students about what types
of behavior were considered acceptable and
even fueled a rivalry with the University of
Virginia over school spirit and pride.
In the years since the code was adopted, the
number of students receiving suspensions and
expulsions has risen dramatically.
In the year before it was adopted, only two
students were suspended or expelled for any of-
fenses, academic or otherwise.
SINCE THAT year, however, the number has
grown until last year 54 suspensions or ex-
pulsions were handed out.

IOWA CITY-There's no avoiding the issue any
longer. That dreaded off-year that Michigan has
been dodging for so many seasons has arrived.
Yesterday's 26-0 loss to Iowa was Bo Schem-
bechler's worstdefeat at Michigan and the first
time the Wolverines have been shut out since
Minnesota did it to them in 1977.
NOW MICHIGAN'S record stands at 4-3. It's
the first time a Schembechler-coached unit has
gone down to defeat for the third time before the
final game of the regular season.
The Wolverine defense kept the Hawkeyes un-
der control for much of yesterday's contest, but
once again the offense couldn't move the ball and
made some major mistakes that led to the blow
"Our defense would have hung in there if they
had an offense to work with," said Schem-
bechler. "But they didn't have that or even a
kicking game today."
THE TURNING point of the game came late in
the third quarter with Iowa ahead 12-0. After
Hawkeye punter Gary Costrubala booted the ball
out of bounds at his own 36-yard line, Russell Rein
moved the Wolverines to a first and goal at the
But Michigan lost five yards on two plays, then
was backed up another five for delay of game.
Finally, on third down at the 15-yard line, Rein
was intercepted by safety Devon Mitchell, who
chugged 75 yards down the sideline to set up
Iowa's second touchdown and put the game out
"That was the big play of the game if there was
one," said Schembechler. "Not only do you not
get in, but you give them field position as well."
THE TRIUMPH kept the Hawkeyes-even with
Ohio State in the Big Ten race at 4-1 and gave all
the Iowans something to get excited about.
"Oh, gee, what a great game," exclaimed the
Hawkeye head coach Hayden Fry. "It was the
most satisfying victory that I have ever been
associated with against one of the best football
programs in America."
"THIS WAS A big win," agreed Hawk quar-
terback Chuck Long. "It's not every day that you
beat Bo Schembechler 26-0. We proved today
how good we are.
Iowa indeed looked unstoppable in front of the
CBS cameras. It avoided the turnovers that had
cost it losses to Penn State and Ohio State earlier
in the year and kept its opponent out of the end
zone for the third straight game.
"It was a super defensive football game," said
Fry. "No one ever dreamed we would goose-egg
"WE KNEW if we could get them in passing
situations, we could beat them," said Hawkeye
safety Mike Stoops. "They rely on that strong
running game and we thought if we could take it
away from them, they'd be in trouble." The
struggling Wolverine offense mustered only 104
yards on the ground, but Schembechler wasn't
giving all the credit to the opposition.
"They're good," said Schembechler. "But not
good enough to shut us out."

Walter Mondale's speech at a rally
last month at the University of
Southern California was marred by
hecklers chanting "Four more years"
The heckling was so loud that Mon-
dale stopped his speech, and shouted,
"It's not bad enough that the
Republicans are running from the
issues, they've got to send a couple of
kids here to prevent us from being
heard in this campaign."
MARK LEACHMAN, the president of
College Republicans here, said the
club's members will "let Mondale know
we're here" when the Democratic
presidential candidate speaks on the
Diag Tuesday afternoon. But he said
the group would not interrupt Mon-
"We'll be there with signs. .. But on-

my people the heckling stops," Leach-

The September truck bombing of the American Embassy
annex in Lebanon and efforts to end the arms race are likely
to be hot items in tonight's debate between President Reagan
and Democratic challenger Walter Mondale.
Several University professors say the candidates are
evenly matched. Reagan enters the debate showing a lead in
pubic opinion polls, and Mondale has the advantage of being
dubbed the winner of the candidates' debate two weeks ago
on domestic affairs.
The 90-minute debate in the Kansas City Municipal
Auditorium Music Hall will be broadcast live by television
networks beginning at 8p.m.
Following is a summary of the issues and comments from
professors on each candidate's position:
A sensitive issue, arms control may find the two presiden-
tial contenders striking uncharacteristic stances.
"Mondale has a difficult road home," says History Prof.
Brad Perkins. Mondale must maintain a hard line against
Soviet military aggression, Perkins says, but at the same
time, "He has got to impress Americans with the dangers of
the arms race and the need to do something about it."
If charged with an unwillingness to negotiate on arms
reductions with the Soviets, Reagan is likely to haul out the
history books, according to Political Science Prof. Raymond
Reagan could counter that the U.S. initiated the inter-
mediate range nuclear force talks and the Strategic Arms
Reduction Talks (START) in 1981-82 and the Soviet Union
walked out of those two talks in 1983, Tanter says.
Abramo Organski, also a professor of political science,
agrees. He predicts Reagan would 'simply respond, "We
have had communications."
BUT MONDALE could say those proposals for arms talks
were not serious proposals, according to History Prof.
Ronald Suny. "Later this was admitted by the Reagan ad-
ministration," he says.
Reagan is the first president since Harry Truman not to
sign an arms treaty with the Soviets.
The professors predicted that Mondale would emerge the
winner of the arms control debate.
"Mondale will try to put Reagan on the defense about arms
control. "He'll be after him for not negotiating settlements,"

6,000 people participated in the effort, but there were not enough people to
form a single continuous chain.

road mile after mile and see people
saying something you wonder about
what they're saying," said University

the effort to form a six-and-a half-mile

" Some 6,000 protesters lined up along
Eight Mile Road trying to form a

Artillery Armory to the National
Guard Armory. They were demon-
strating against the nuclear arms
race, military intervention in Central
America, and the decrease in funding
for human services.
