Campus graffiti artists, while they have always been
active scrawling their images or political messages on
University property, have stepped up their destructive ef-
forts this fall, and increasingly their targets are members
of minority groups.
University construction foreman Glenn Nicholai of the
plant department said reported incidents of campus graf-
fiti have doubled from a year ago, shooting up the cost of
cleanup bills to the University.
Gus Pablindeman, also a construction foreman,said
there is a pileup of about 25 work orders to clean up the
graffiti dating back to last September. This means much
of the graffiti becomes part of the campus landscape.
"It's a shame," Pablindeman said. "They don't under-
stand the time and money involved to remove it."
Although methods of battling the graffiti have improved
over the years, the costs have steadily risen. A new
chemical called "graffiti grabber" runs about $50 a
gallon, and with the sudden rise of graffiti vandalism, last
month's cleanup crew used 12 gallons of the chemical.
Of even greater concern than the expense and the
unaesthetic nature of the graffiti on campus is the increas-

Haig balks at rumors of
LOS ANGELES (AP) - Despite his literary agent's
comment that "It will be Haig for president in 1988," Gen.
Alexander Haig balked yesterday at talk of succeeding
Ronald Reagan in the White House.
His agent Norman Brokaw issued a press release this
week anticipating that the former NATO commander,
secretary of state and White House chief of staff would be
a candidate in '88. And Brokaw said yesterday in Los
Angeles that Haig told him he planned to run for

West Point, where he had a speaking engagement, "I'm

He said he would remain active politically and cam-

He said making a statement now about his aspirations

The Michigan Student Assembly
may urge students to boycott the

student body's overwhelming rejec-

In addition to considering a boycott,

Code debate shifts towards firats

When the University's ad-
ministration proposed a code of non-
academic conduct last year, students
balked, saying that the University has
no authority over their lives outside
Since then, however, students seem
to have accepted that - at least in
cases in violent crimes - the Univer-
sity should be able to take some kind
Just how far the long arms of the
University's law should extend began
to be questioned last week when the
University Council started haggling
over how to handle violent crimes in
fraternities, sororities, and co-
BOTH SYSTEMS lie in the gray
area between being a University
organization subject to University
sanctions, and being a private
residence governed by societal san-
The University Council - the nine-
member body charged last year to
work on an alternative to the ad-
ministration's code proposal - has
already agreed that the University's
jurisdiction is limited.
The University should be able to
take aciton when the crimes take
place on campus or when a student,
faculty member, or staff member is
acting within those roles off campus.
FOR EXAMPLE, the University
would have jurisdiction if a faculty
member attacks a student while
holding a seminar at home. The
University would not have jurisdic-
tion, however, if the faculty member
and the student were at a party.
Under the current proposal in cases
of violent crimes, the council has also
agreed that a student, faculty, or staff
member can be, at the most, banned
from campus. The decision would be
made by a central campus coor-
dinator within 24 hours of the incident.
The accused, however, would be able
to appeal the decision in a mandatory
hearing within 10 days after the sen-
"I think the council has pretty much
reached a consensus that the Univer-
sity should not get involved in what
