Former SLS director says code isn't needed

As the debate about the proposed
code of non-academic conduct sinks
back into the deliberations of . the
University Council, student leaders
are taking a "wait-and-see" attitude
toward the issue.
But the incidents in the past month,
opponents of the code say, show why a
new set of rules for students' behavior
outside the classroom is not necessary.
ONE, they say, involves a student
who was threatened in her dormitory
room ; the second, a Couzens resident
who put up posters saying he would

make his building director's life a
"living hell."
Housing officials threatened to evict
the Couzens resident, engineering
freshman Greg Brown, last week, but
later agreed to let him move into
South Quad. Housing officials have
the authority to cancel dorm leases if
students threaten the safety of others
in the dorm, said John Finn, associate
director of student housing.
The incident, said Jonathan Rose,
former director of Student Legal Ser-
vices and a follower of the code
proceedings, shows two ways the ad-

ACCORDING TO Rose, ad- from a dorm or calling the police--or

use the threat of formal action to push
for informal settlements, like seeking
counseling, paying retribution, or
moving to another dormitory.
But the University administrators
say they need to do more. For exam-
ple, said Dan Sharphorn, ad-
ministrative associate for the Office
of Academic Affairs and an advisor to
the University Council, the University

"We're pretty satisfied with how
we've been able to handle things in the
dorms," Finn said. "The way I under-
stand it, the code is supposed to

enable the University to deal with
.dangerous situations they can't
with now, like if a student threatens
somebody on the Diag."
OUTSIDE the dorms, the Univer-
sity can now call the Ann Arbor
police or bring in campus security of-
ficers to break up dangerous
situations. But they cannot impose
any sanctions for non-academic
crimes other than pressing charges in

Challenge for leadership boosts Rackham Student Govt. vote

Rackham Student Government President
Dean Baker said yesterday his opponents in
the RSG election "are putting up a good
challenge. It's possible they'll win."
Two students in the Institute of Public
Policy, Peggy Kuhn and Bart Edes, are
* challenging Baker and RSG Vice President
Thea Lee for their posts. Voting began
yesterday and ends tonight at 9 p.m.

The B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation
is embarking on a $3 million
renovation project to add 13,000
square feet to its Hill Street building
and build a new structure next fall in -
order to "reach people where their
,needs are," said Phyllis Zarren,
)Hillel's associate director.
Zarren said the renovation is
needed "because Hillel has grown to
be a monster." The additions will
enable Hillel to meet the growing
demands of the organization, she said.
"BECAUSE Hillel now directly spon-
sors and supports more student-run
activities than any other organization,
except for UAC, and allocates more
funds to student-run programs than Plar

KUHN AND Edes say they hope to ac-
complish four goals if elected: increased
communication between RSG and all
Rackham students; creating a more ef-
ficient RSG administration by balancing the
budget; improving the overall attitude of
the RSG; and insuring RSG participation in
a variety of University-wide issues, in-
cluding discussions on the non-academic
conduct code and computer facilities and

Edes. said the current RSG is "banging on
issues not related to students" and wants
that to change.
Baker predicted that 200 of 6,000 eligible
people may vote in this year's election.
"This is still pathetic considering the num-.
ber of Rackham students that there are," he
said, but it would be a 250 percent increase
over last year, when Baker received 40 of

less than 70 votes as a write-in candidate.
WHILE Edes said he was satisfied with
the increased turnout, he voiced several
complaints about the way the election is
being run. He said the locations of the polls--
at the Union from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and at
Rackham from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. yesterday
and today--are inconvenient to students who
live near Lorch Hall and other areas of
campus. He also criticized the policy

requiring voters to put their names on the
ballots when they vote.
Ed Chu, an Institute of Public Policy
student and supporter of Kuhn and Edes,
said "the other group is taking down our
signs and replacing them with their own" in
the Rackham building lobby. Yesterday af-
ternoon there were no signs hanging in the
Rackham lobby for any executive officer

No vacancy
Hotels fill for graduation

Good luck finding a place for your
parents to stay during graduation
weekend if you haven't found one
already: Area hotels are booked solid
for May 2 and 3.
The University of Michigan and
Eastern Michigan University's com-
mencement ceremonies fall on the
same date, so the nearest hotels with
any vacancies for that weekend are in
Plymouth, Mich. But already the
Plymouth Hilton has filled up for the
first weekend in May.
The Ann Arbor Inn and the Campus
Inn are already booked for graduation
weekend in 1987, and several other
local hotels--including the Bf11 Tower
Hotel, the Best Western Wolverine

Inn, the Briarwood Hilton Inn, and
both East and West Holiday Inns--
have been filled to capacity for this
year's commencement since
James Bolden of the Campus Inn
suggested that the sponsors of the
May Festival concert series move
their event in order to avoid the
co gestion.
There may still be some reser-
vations available at the smaller
hotels, such as The Lamppost, The
Varsity Inn, and Knights Inn. The
Jackson, Mich. and Detroit Metro
Airport areas are also reportedly
relatively open this year.
And if they're booked too, your
parents can just camp out in the Arb.
