Students compare code

to

'kangaroo courts'

By LAURIE DELATER
Despite the threat of rain and chilling
wind, about 80 students and one
kangaroo rallied yesterday on Regents'
Plaza against the proposed student
code for non-academic conduct before
crowding into the Fleming Ad-
ministration Building where the
University's Board of Regents was
meeting.
LSA sophomore Paul Josephson don-
ned a kangaroo suit and other
protestors wore kangaroo stickers to
draw a parallel between the proposed
guidelines and "Kanagaroo courts," or
unfair judicial systems with secret
hearings, lack of due process, and
vague rules.
"ILLEGITIMATE courts, vigilante
courts. That's what we have here today
in the code," LSA senior Lee
Winkelman, told the crowd.
Speakers at the rally said the
proposed conduct rules are
discriminatory because they apply only
to students, fail to guarantee students'
right to an attorney or a jury of their
peers, and require no formal rules of
evidence.

Eric Goldstein, an LSA junior, had
students clap in time to a song he
delivered about the code's history.
Protestors hopped up and down
imitating kangaroos and chanted,
"Student rights, student power. There's
no justice in the Ivory Tower" and
"Hey, hey. Ho, ho. The code of conduct
has got to go."
AFTER THE rally, the students filed
into the regents' room to listen to three
students address the code during the
public comments session of the
meeting.

Graduate student David Holtzman
said he served on the committee which
formulated conduct rules at Princeton
University. He warned the University
against closed hearings and hearing
boards composed of administrators and
faculty.
LSA Sophomore Suzanne Law ex-
pressed concern that only one ad-
ministrator would hear and decide
most cases. She questioned the ap-
propriateness of the administration's
desire to find a more expeditious and
informal way to punish misconduct.

New code draft reflects student concerns

(Continued from Page 1)
.,THE NEW draft also exludes working student
joprnalists from the conduct rules; says students
nay decline to appear at a hearing on the grounds
that their testimony might be self-incriminating;
xeguires that a copy of the evidence and rules of
procedure be given to students before their hearing;
nd narrows the existing University regulations
;povered by the code to policies on hazing, sexual
Harassment, and the University's Statement on
Freedom of Speech and Artistic Expression.
'.But despite student opposition, the new draft still

does not require formal rules of evidence or prohibit
the University from taking action against a student if
a trial for the same crime in proceeding in the
criminal courts.
"It's definitely better than the last version, in my
opinion, but others may not think so," said MSA
President Scott Page.
Eric Schnaufer, chair of MSA's code commit-
tee, said the administration "is on the right track,"
but added that "a lot of the revisions are tactical and
not substantive."
Jonathan Rose, an attorney for Student Legal Ser-

vices and a vocal opponent of the code, said the new
arrangement for selecting student members to the
hearing board does "lip service to student control."
THE ADMINISTRATION'S March draft called for
hearing boards composed of two students, two faculty
members, and one administrator.
Under the new draft, three or five students will be
randomly selected to serve on each hearing board
from a pool of not less than 20 students. The president
will choose these 20 students from a larger pool of
randomly selected students.

U' makes state aid request

x, + (Continued from Page 1)
4he University solicited contributions
from-faculty and staff members to fight
,he proposal - a move that Baker said
was inappropriate.
a, "This University ought not even ap-
pear to coerce its employees into sup-
port of political related efforts," he
said.
"The principal issue here is not the
merits or demerits of Proposal C, but
the independence of the University of
Michigan and its freedom to search for
truth without the burden of political
identification," Baker said.
REGENT Thomas Roach (D-Saline)
agreed that the University should avoid
becoming embroiled in politics. He ad-
ded however, that "occasionally,
1 something comes up that is so fun-
damental to our existence that we have
to say 'no.' This was one of those
times."
Baker also said that he was disturbed
by what he felt was an unfair adver-
tising campaign by Promote Michigan,
a group organized to defeat Proposal C.
"It doesn't really stand the test of
scholarship, some of the stuff we put
out," he said.
IF PROPOSAL C had passed, ad-
ministrators said, the University could
have lost upwards of $20 million in state
aid over the next year. The University
receives $182 million this year from the
state, and will request a 13.5 percent in-
crase for next year.
Billy Frye, Vice President for
Academic Affairs and Provost, told the
regents that the University lags well
behind most of its peer institutions in
the amount of state aid it receives.
As a result, Frye said, tuition has

risen dramatically - 79 percent over
the past five years. The University also
trails other universitities in faculty
salaries, and has a backlog of at least
$15 million in building maintenance,
Frye said.
THE appropriations request includes
an increase of $27 million just to keep
pace with inflation, and another $18
million to improve salaries, instruc-
tional equipment, the library system,
the computer system, and minority
student aid.
In addition, the University will ask
for $200,000 to begin a "Center for
Educational Excellence," which would
serve as a "focal point for interaction
between K-12 schools and the Univer-
sity."
The Center would be modeled after
the University's English Composition
Board, which facilitates interaction
between University professors and
schoolteachers.
Regent Sarah Power (D-Ann Arbor)
said that the administration should look
at ways to cut the budget and reallocate
funds. "Maybe we have to follow up on
the five-year plan," she said, referring
to the University's program to
reallocate $20 million into high priority
areas.
University President Harold
Shapiro said that the administration
has tried to maintain the quality of the
University with diminishing resources
by using other sources of revenue in the
private sector.
"We don't want to fail, however, to
give the state a chance to maintain a
quality public institution," he said.
"But if they don't,w e will."
