Kremlin accuses $U.S.of
blocking weapons talks
MOSCOW (AP)-In the third major statement in four days
on arms control, the Kremlin accused the United States
yesterday of at least eight treaty violations and dismissed
similar U.S. charges as "political forgery" intended to block
nuclear weapons talks.
The formal, strongly worded government comment
followed a Foreign Ministry news briefing Friday that in-
cluded many of the same allegations, and the first interview
granted by President Konstantin Chernenko to an American
The forceful and highly public nature of the Soviet
statements, especially Wednesday's face-to-face meeting
between Chernenko and the Washington Post bureau chief in
Moscow, were seen as indications of the priority attached by
the Kremlin to arms control.
Yesterday's commentary ran an unusually long 1,000-plus
words and was identical in many parts to the statement read
by Foreign Ministry spokesman Vladimir Lomeiko on
Issuing the formal "Tass statement," reserved for major
government pronouncements, one day later may have been
intended to add emphasis to Lomeiko's comments and also to
keep up interest by foreign news media in the Soviet
Some Western diplomats believe the Soviets want to main-
tain the offensive in the public debate over nuclear weapons,
and also hope to keep the issue alive during the U.S. presiden-

Last year, 14 students were suspen-
ded and two expelled for non-academic
violations of the code, according to
Of the 603 cases which the judicial
system handled, two students were ex-
pelled, 52 suspended, 110 took part in
mandatory service projects, and 26
paid fines to local charities, Pavela
said. The rest of the students were
either found innocent or given war-
SANCTIONS FROM the code paid
local charities $700, while another
$2,000 was paid as restitution for
property damage, he said.
Since the judicial boards were
established, they have heard over 2,500
cases ranging from aggravated assault
and major theft to minor academic
cheating offenses, Pavela said.
Maryland's code reads very much
like the code administrators in Ann Ar-
bor are pushing, reflecting the extent to
which it was used as a model for the
PROHIBITED CONDUCT ranges
from sexual assault and possession of
weapons to interfering with the
freedom of speech of another person.
Punishments run from expulsion to a
warning that a second offense would
draw a stiffer penalty.
There are, however, significant dif-
ferences between Maryland's judicial
system and the hearing procedures of-
ficials in Ann Arbor have proposed.
Perhaps the biggest difference is that
Maryland's judicial boards are com-
posed entirely of students, while
Michigan's proposed boards would
leave students in the minority.
Michigan's boards would be made up
of two students, two professors, an ad-
ministrative staff member, and a
hearing officer to preside over the case.
"WHAT IS DISTINCTIVE about
Maryland is you (are) judged by your
peers," Bishop said. "Professors
might help when it comes to procedural
problems. . . but having them on the
board is terribly bad when it comes to
deliberations. Students would tend not
to be as open. The professor would
have excessive influence."
Another major difference, which
especially seems to have affected
students' positive attitude toward the
code, is that the non-academic parts
are tied closely to academic violations.
Pavela and Bishop said the major
push for Maryland's code came from
professors and students who were con-
cerned about rampant cheating and
"MARYLAND IS in the process of
trying to improve its standing (among
colleges)," Bishop said. "One of the
ways it wants to do that is to insist on
The school's code and judicial
process is effective in catching and
punishing academic cheaters. Last
year, 38 students were suspended for
"academic dishonesty," Pavela said.
There were no expulsions for academic
A third major difference is that
Maryland's code allows attorneys to
argue cases and ask questions during
hearings for non-academic offenses,
although they cannot answer questions
for accused students.
Michigan's proposed code allows
lawyers only at the discretion of a
Although these differences all give
Maryland's students more protection of
their rights than Michigan's proposed
code would, there are several parts of
Michigan's code which favor accused
For example, Maryland's code in-
forms students that hearing boards
might "draw negative inferences" if
students refuse to answer questions.
Michigan's code protects a student's
right to remain silent by stating that
refusal to answer "may not be con-
sidered in any finding, decision, or
Maryland's code requires only a
"preponderance of evidence" to prove
a student is guilty, while Michigan's
code would require "clear and con-
vincing evidence" of guilt.
Ted Mondale, the son of Democratic
presidential candidate Walter Mondale,
said recently that Michigan is one of
five key states in the campaign. That
remark was incorrectly attributed in
yesterday's Daily to Tom Howlett of the
state Mondale/Ferraro campaign of-
