says code
University President Harold Shapiro told students
at a forum last night that he would not ban the use of
the proposed student code for non-academic conduct
as a method of selective punishment for civil
"If (civil disobedience) means interfering with the
legitimate pursuits of other members of the
academic community, than I wouldn't be in favor" of
restricting the code from punishing student
protesters, Shapiro said.
SPEAKING TO a crowd of about 300 students
packed into an Angell Hall, auditorium last night,
Shapiro repeatedly said the key purpose of the
proposed guidelines for governing student behavior
outside the classroom is to protect the academic
freedom of members of the University community.
But he said academic freedom is not currently
stifled, and can only be improved upon. Shapiro told
the crowd that safety was not "a big issue" in
developing a code, yet every example he cited as
proof of a need for a code was safety-related - the
harassment of instructors or campus bus drivers, or
damage to University property.
AND SHAPIRO said he didn't know how many
cases of harassment or destruction actually occur on

MANAGUA, Nicaragua - A

sound barrier over five
Nicaraguan cities yesterday, sen-

streets amid fears of a U.S. strike

to be MiG jets.

A BOOM shook the capital about
9:30 a.m. Similar booms Oct. 31
were first attributed to bombs, but
the government later said they
were produced by a U.S. plane

Reported invasion

Amid rumors yesterday of a
planned U.S. invasion of
Nicaragua, University students
and local groups worked feverishly
to plan their response to an in-
At a noon rally at the Federal
Building, organizers warned
onlookers to be prepared to protest
the reported imminent invasion.
PETER ROSSETT of the Latin
American Solidarity Committee
told the group of about 40 people
that he had received reports from
Nicaraguan citizens and the

National Network for Solidarity with
the Peoples of Nicaragua in
Washington that Nicaragua had
sent out an invasion alert.
The same sources, Rossett said'
reported that two U.S. paratrooper
divisions, the 82nd and the 101st
Airborne, were mobilized in
possible preparation for an in-

military base in North Carolina.

Secretary T.H. Bell, who helped spark a
nationwide drive to raise school stan
dards and made education an asset for
President Reagan instead of an
albatross, announced his resignation
yesterday to return to Utah as a college
"We're involved in a real renaissanc
of American education," Bell told a
news conference. "It's been a joy to b
a part of that." But he said "a four
year hitch" was long enough.
THE VACATIONING president, in a
letter released by the White House to
Santa Barbara, Calif., expressed his
"deep regret" and said "I want you to
know how greatly I will miss you asa
member of my Cabinet."

return home, both to resume beinga

Ford, Carter to host 'U' symposium

Brown University student Jason Salzman speaks to a class in the Modern Languages Building yesterday. Salzman
came to campus at the request of students who want the University to stockpile suicide pills for student use in the event
of a nuclear war. Salzman created and organized the movement at Brown which currently is gaining popularity across
the nation. "We want people to equate nuclear war with suicide," he said.

Former presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter will
moderate a symposium next week which organizers hope will
provide some new answers for ending the arms race and
establishing a common ground between both parties on the
Ford and Carter will meet with various scholars and
statesmen - including Zbigniew Brzezinski, National
Security Advisor under the Carter administration - to
discuss the problems of arms control and negotiations bet-
ween the world's two superpowers. The symposium's two

sessions will take place in the Rackham Auditorium before
an audience made up of University students and faculty
"THEIR HOPES are to educate the general public and
make suggestions to the policy-making community in the
U.S. on what to do vis a vis the critical isue of arms control,"
said Kenneth Stein, executive director of Atlanta's Carter
Center, which is co-sponsoring the meeting with the Gerald
R. Ford Library at the University.

Four more hours

The movie theater worker hoped to be recognized as a
Guiness record-holder for nonstop viewing of a "classic"
film. Four people began the attempt to establish a record
last Saturday, but only Lazarek was left when the judges
decided they had had enough. Lazarek, who watched the
Reagan film 56 times, won a video cassette recorder, a copy
of the film and a trophy for his efforts. Organizer Graham
Smith said he was prepared to give equal time to Reagan's
Presidential opponent Walter Mondale. "If Mr.
Mondale had won, I would have written him to ask for his
old home movies," Smith said.

woman from another group "came up and said 'You sound
like an American, where are you from?"' "I said the Mid-
west and she said, 'Whereabouts in the Midwest?' I said
Minnesota and she said she was from there, too, and asked
me where from in Minnesota. I said you probably haven't
heard of it. It's a small village in northern Minnesota called
Crosslake. She just let out a scream and grabbed this man
and said, 'Look, dear, I found someone from Crosslake.' "

to finish the job," coordinator Mike Meyer said Wednesday
as he prepared to haul the cookies to Jacksonville, Fla., for
delivery. Meyer, a columnist for the Times-Georgian
newspaper in Carrollton, Ga., got the idea for the "I Love
America" effort when his son, one of 5,300 sailors aboard
the ship, said the main thing they missed was home
cooking. "I know this present will be much appreciated,"
said Navy spokesman Nick Young. "Unless you've been at
sea, you can't imagine what the last two days of a long
deployment are like. I'm sure they will enjoy the cookies
very much."
