MSA fights for release of report

IN BRIEF

(Continued from Page 1)
"IT'S A SHAME that the document
isn't brought out in the University
community for discussion among
students, the alumni associaton, and
faculty," said MSA President Scott
Page.
"It is important that on a document
like this students are directly in-
volved," he added. "They have the

right to know what's going on.'
Sudarkasa, Page said, "is probably
very thorough, but more voices would
improve the document."
MSA'S resolution is intendednto
pressure the executive officers into
releasing copies of the report to the
assembly and the public.
Aramaki said Sudarkasa told the
Council of Minority Concerns she wan-
ted to recommend an increase of finan-

cial aid for minority students. But she
did not indicate to the group what in-
crease she would seek.
Dave Robinson, an assistant director
of admissions, said the report also
recommends doubling black
enrollment within three or four years.
The increase would bring black
enrollment up to 10 percent, the goal set
by the University administration in 1970
as a result of the Black Action

Movement. The University has failed to
meet that goal in 15 years.
"I think (the goal) a realistic idea,
but the timing maybe isn't realistic,"
Robinson said.
Other executive officers declined to
say when Sudarkasa's report would be
made public. "I don't even know if it's
going to come out, (or) when it is," said
one administrator, who asked to
remain anonymous.

'U' council agrees to take new approach on code

(Continued from Page 1)
"A VARIETY of outcomes, short of
those mandated by court of law, seems
very appealing," she said.
Susan Eklund, an administrator on
the board, agreed that the criminal*
justice system may move too slowly to
ensure the safety of the University
community.
"The point is, I think, that they're
back at the University so fast," she
said. "It's a matter of speed."
EKLUND also suggested that the

council consider extending the jurisdic-
tion of a code to include off-campus
housing. Past versions of the code have
been limited to problems on University
grounds.
Student representative Eric
Schnaufer, however, argued that the
University shouldn't intervene in
problems that don't occur on University
property. "I think that the University
has no jurisdiction over personal dispu-
tes in off-campus housing," he said.
The council also discussed the

possibility of setting up a University-
sponsored mediation service to settle
grievances.
ACCORDING to Donald Rucknagel, a
faculty representative from the
medical school, such a system "might
be very effective."
"The ideal way of resolving disputes
is at the lowest possible level," he said.
Nordby, however, said the system
has its flaws. "Mediation really won't
work if one party has a considerably
larger power base," she said, such as

conflicts between the University and
students.
Nordby said ad hoc mediation efforts
have taken place in the University for
quite some time, and they have worked
"only in situations involving property
and contractural disputes between
students."
Correction
LSA Student Government will ask
department chairs and professors to
distribute surveys to students to deter-
mine the level of support for after-
commencement receptions. A story in
yesterday's Daily incorrectly stated
that surveys would be administered in
the Fishbow l.t

Kirpatrick quits administration
WASHINGTON-U.N. Ambassador Jeane Kirkpatrick, ending the
capital's long-running guessing game about her future, announced yester-
day she is quitting the administration after a sometimes stormy tenure and
returning to teaching and writing.
Revealing her plans following a private meeting with President Reagan,
Kirkpatrick adamantly refused to say whether she had been offered a neW
job in the second administration. White House officials also declined.
Asked if she was disappointed at not getting another top government posts
Kirkpatrick said, "No. No, no, no, no, no.
"If I had wanted a top foreign policy job in the second term, I would have
remained as U.S. permanent representative to the United Nations," said
Kirkpatrick, one of three women in the administration with Cabinet rank. # :
White House spokesman Larry Speakes said that in Reagan's view, "Shels
done a first-rate job, ranks among the greatest of U.N. ambassadors. He
does wish she would stay but understands her reasons for leavii g."
Senator attacks Meese's conduct
WASHINGTON-The ranking Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Commit'
tee, in a sudden burst of emotion, told Edwin Meese yesterday that hjs
behavior was ethical but "beneath the office" of attorney general. *'s
"Who the hell cares" about the technical points, said Sen. Joseph Biden of
Delaware, in response to Meese's answers during confirmation hearings to
questions about his conduct.
His voice cracking with emotion, Biden said, "It's an attitude. Why is it so
difficult for you to go back and say in hindsight it was wrong to do such aqA
such?"
"I have said that," Meese, the presidential counselor shot back. Bidens
comments followed hours of often repetitive questioning about Meese s
promotion in the Army Reserve and the federal appointments given to
people who helped him financially.
Meanwhile, it was learned four days after writing senators that Meese
violated no ethics rules, a government official acknowledged in a second let-
ter that the attorney general-designate "created the appearances" of con-
flict of interest.
Meese, attempting to explain the financial mess that got him into trouble,
noted his family and financial records are now in Washington and said he
expects to be "considerably less busy" in the job of attorney general.
Trade deficit breaks record
WASHINGTON-The U.S. merchandise trade deficit reached a record
$123.3 billion in 1984 and is likely to grow even more this year, the Commerce
Department said yesterday.
The worsening trade deficit-up from $69.4 billion in 1983-is the result of a
$71.3 billion, 26.4 percent, rise in U.S. imports combined with an increase of
exports of only $17.4 billion, or 8.7 percent.
Economists say the trade deficit slows U.S. economic growth, reduces the
rate of increase in employment and has turned the United States into a
debtor nation for the first time since World War I.
Commerce Department economist David Lund attributed the
deterioration to faster economic growth in the United States than abroad and
to continued strengthening of the dollar, which rose 10 percent against other
major currencies during 1984.
The report brought new calls from inside and outside the government for
steps to reduce the $200 billion U.S. budget deficit, believed by most
economists to be closely related to the trade deficit.

impending financial disaster
WASHINGTON-Representatives from the nation's agricultural hear=
tland warned Congress yesterday that there is "a gathering rural storm"
over the crisis in farm financing that threatens upheaval in America's food
production and banking systems.
"This disaster is of truly astounding proportions, " said Bishop Maurice
Dingman of the Des Moines, Iowa, Roman Catholic Diocese and a founder of
the state's Farm Unity Coalition.
"Equally astounding is our federal officials who are unaware of, or do not
care about, the gathering rural storm," said Dingman, who was among
about a dozen spokesmen for farmers, banks and rural action groups
speaking at an informal hearing on the farm credit crisis.
The message, brought to Congress for the first time since it convened this
month, was that farmers saddled by heavy debt are increasingly unable to
pay it off because of declining values of their land and crops.
OPEC lowers crude oil price

4

GENEVA, Switzerland-OPEC abandoned its $29-a-barrel benchmark
price yesterday and reduced its crude oil rate by an average of $1 in a move
that could yield small savings at the gasoline pump for American con-
sumers.
Foursof the 13 oil ministers of the Organization of Petroleum Exporting
Countries refused to accept the cuts, signaling a possibly disastrous split in
the cartel.
In adopting the new pricing system, a majority of nine members agreed to
drop the benchmark price of $29 for a 42-gallon barrel of Arabian light crude
oil to $28.
It was the second time in history that OPEC lowered its base price since
the cartel was founded in 1960. OPEC slashed its benchmark price by $5 to
$29 a barrel in March 1983 to avert a global pricing war.
