Several members of the Board of
Regents yesterday said they will act
on the code of non-academic conduct
if the University Council does not
come up with an alternative to the
administration's code proposal soon.
The regents, speaking to students at
an informal reception in the Michigan
Union, placed no deadline on when
they would consider by-passing the
council and adopting the series of
rules for behavior outside the
HOWEVER, they said the council -
which has been meeting for over a
year - has had enough time to com-
plete its work, and that action on the
code issue should be taken soon.
"I think the students on the council
have been trying not to have a code by
not making one," said Regent
Thomas Roach (D-Saline). "I'm
willing to wait until (University)
President Shapiro brings us a code to
vote on, but I think something should
be done soon."
"A year is sufficient time," said
Regent Sarah Power (D-Ann Arbor),
"especially when the safety of people
are involved." She pointed out that
the University currently has no
mechanism for taking action on
students, faculty, or staff members
who violate crimes, outside of calling
ADMINISTRATORS have said this
is not enough because of cases when
arsonists, for example, are released
on bail and allowed to return to cam-
Power said it was not her place to
set the timetable for the code's issue
and denied a rumor that she had told
some students at the reception she felt
the regents should take action on the
code next month.
"I said that if students wanted to
come talk about differing views on the
code at next month's (regents
meeting), I'm sure Mr. Shapiro would
set aside some time for them."
REGENTS Nellie Varner (D-
Detroit), Veronica Smith (R-Grosse
Ile), and Neal Nielsen (R-Brighton)
also said yesterday the regents per-
ceive the council as stalling and that
action shouldbe taken soon.The three
other regents on the board were
unavailable for comment.
The regent's remarks signal
growing impatience with the council.
Last month, students involved in the
code issue, including two who serve on
the council, said Shapiro had
threatened, in private discussions,
that he would present the regents with
a version of last year's code proposal
by the administration, unless the
council finished work by then. The
council is not expected to finish by the
end of the year. It has not yet begun to
work on the most controversial aspect
of any code proposal - how the
University should handle acts of civil
Councilmembers, when told of the
regents' statments at the end of its
weekly meeting yesterday, brushed off
the news as "old news."
"WE'VE KIND of known our time
was short from the beginning of the
semester," said Suzanne Cohen, a law

when it travels to Minnesota to meet
the 6-3 Golden Gophers and their star
sophomore quarterback Rickey
A lot more is on the line in this
year's Wolverine-Gopher clash than
in most recent Little Brown Jug
matchups because both teams are in
need of a win to get a decent bowl bid.
Should Iowa lose, Michigan (7-1-1)
will be in control of its Rose Bowl
destiny next week against Ohio State
while the Gophers need to finish well
to get any kind of bid.
BUT FOR now, the bowl situation is
wrapped in Foggie-ness.
After keeping Jack Trudeau, Chuck
Long, and Jim Everett - three of the
Big Ten's top quarterbacks - out of
the end zone, the Michigan defense
once again has its work cut out for it
in trying to stop Foggie who, unlike
the other three, is a running threat.
With his rushing and passing talen-
ts, Foggie is seen by many as the Big
Ten's best all-around quarterback. He
has rushed for 417 yards and nine

A new course in ethics, designed to
make engineers aware of the im-
plications of their science, may be of-
fered to engineering school students
as early as next year,
Mike Castle, chairman of the
Engineering Council's ethics commit-
tee, said course curriculum would be
determined by students.
"THE MOST important thing is that
it would be an. open forum," he said.
Topics such as pollution and the
Strategic Defense Initiative, might be
considered for class discussion, he
"But we should also consider
everyday things . . . every time you
turn on a light or talk on the phone,
you're affected by engineering
designs," Castle said.
If approved by the college's ad-
ministration, the course would be of-
fered to 70 juniors, seniors, and
graduate students, Castle said.
