Edison
tries to
solve light
problem
By MARY CHRIS JAKLEVIC
Blackouts which have affected
streetlights in several campus areas
may have been caused by construc-
tion related to the University's new
phone system, officials said yester-
day.
Detroit Edison supervisor Ron
Mason said crews which began
checking underground cables yester-
day had not yet found the source of the
problem. But he speculated that the
outages were the result of damage to
the cables which occurred last sum-
mer during installation of new
telephone wires.
UNIVERSITY Director of Public
Safety Leo Heatley said the blackout
poses a safety hazard because it af-
fects high-traffic areas, including the
walkways around the Betsy Barbour
and Helen Newberry residence halls.
Security officers reported Tuesday
that about 25 lights were out along
Maynard and Thompson streets and
on North Campus at the intersection
of Hubbard and Stone roads.
Mason said that additional lights
may be out because there are about 50
lights on the affected circuits.
HEATLEY said that construction
crews working during the summer
may have made tiny cuts in the elec-
trical cables. If moisture slowly
seeped into those cuts, he said, it

'U' profs criticize
Libyan sanctions

By JILL OSEROWSKY
President Reagan's recent san-
ctions against Libya will prove inef-
fective due to the lack of support from
U.S. allies and the small amount of
U.S.-Libyan trade, according to
several University professors.
"The economic sanctions are
doomed to fail," said Political Science
Prof. Raymond Tanter, a former
member of Reagan's National
Security Council.
"I THINK the administration is
making a strategic error in its loud
rhetoric with little action," he said,
adding that "anti-Khadafy rhetoric is
self-defeating . . . (and) makes
Khadafy out as a revolutionary hero
standing up to a superpower."
Reagan announced Tuesday that
the United States would halt virtually
all economic activity with Libya. He
froze Libyan assets in the United
States and ordered most of the 1,500
Americans working in Libya to return
home. The administration is also con-
sidering military action against
Col. Moammar Khadafy's government.
Visiting History Prof. David Com-
mins agreed with Tanter , saying that
he "can understand putting pressure
on Libya but can't understand the
great lengths to which (Reagan) is
going. . . putting American prestige
on the line." He added that the
criminal actions threatened against
Americans in Libya if they don't leave
are unfair. "That sounds like
Russia," he said. Commins called the
sanctions taken against Libya for its

alleged role in recent terrorist attacks
in Europe "part of Reagan's deal of
getting tough on terrorism - all
sound and fury and no tangible ef-
fect."
ALTHOUGH Near-Eastern Studies
Prof Trevor Lagassick said the san-
ctions will "have some psychological
impact on Western-oriented
Libyans," he added that he doesn't
"expect any changes in Libyan policy
to come out of these activities."
In response to the U.S. moves,
Khadafy yesterday promised to ex-
tradite any terrorists if the West can
prove that the terrorists are using
Libya as a sanctuary.
"That's easy to say," said Denis
Sullivan, a political science teaching

assistant who added that identifying
terrorists would prove difficult
Several professors opposed taking
military actions against Libya
because "any U.S. retaliation would
strengthen Col. Khadafy's hand," Tan-
ter said.
He suggested that the U.S. support
covert operations that would
destabilize Khadafy's regime and in-
filtrate terrorist groups to prevent
attacks.
"The U.S. has a moral obligation to
act before someone has acted against
the U.S. In other words, it's self-
defense in its purest form," Tanter
said.

Shultz says U.S.
would consider force

WASHINGTON (AP) - Secretary of
State George Shultz said yesterday
that the United States was near the
"end of the road" in applying
economic pressure on Libya and
would consider using force, if
necessary, to counter terrorism.
"We are prepared to use the means
that will be effective and are
necessary," Shultz said at a news con-
ference dominated by the escalating
U.S. effort to tame Col. Moammar
Khadafy, the Libyan leader.

"Force may not be the best means,
but it may be necessary," he said.
Shultz announced, meanwhile, that
he was sending his deputy, John
Whitehead, to Europe to try to per-
suade U.S. allies to support the
American campaign to isolate Libya
economically.
With rising emotion, he suggested
that Europeans, who have been
dragging their feet, should look at the
photographs of the mayhem at the

' Council
sets March
goal for
"finishing
code draft

By KERY MURAKAMI
The University Council yesterday tentatively
set a "middle of March" goal for releasing
their version of the proposed code of non-
academic conduct to solicit comment from the
public.
The council also said they would try to finish
by the end of the month their "emergency
procedures" for life-threatening situations
within the University community.
MADE UP of students, faculty, and ad-
ministrators, the council was called in over a
year ago to come up with a compromise in the
controversial debate over a new set of rules for
behavior outside of class.
University President Harold Shapiro and
members of the Board of Regents have repor-
tedly grown impatient with the slow progress of
the council.

Shapiro, according to students on the council,
has warned them that he may bypass the coun-
cil and ask the regents to approve a temporary
code as soon as next week.
SUZANNE Cohen, a law student and co-chair
of the council, yesterday denied that the
deadline was set because of pressure from
University decision-makers. It was set, she
said, at the request of Eugene Nissen, Assisant
Dean of Student Academic Affairs for LSA,
who is one of three administrators on the coun-
cil.
Nissen said he just wanted a time frame for
the council's work.
Shapiro was unavailable for comment last
night.
ONE REGENT, Deane Baker (R-Ann Ar-
bor), was not impressed with the council's
goals. "The council's work should have been

finished months and months ago," Baker said,
"they've lost their credibility as far as I'm con-
cerned."
Several of the-regents, including Baker, have
said they think students on the council have
been stalling.
They have said they would support passing
a code before the council finishes.
Baker, said yesterday that he didn't know if
the council's deadline would deter the regents
from passing an interim code.
ALSO yesterday, the council continued
polishing its initial draft of the "emergency
procedures."
According to the council, once an emergency
arises, a faculty or administrator ser-
ving as the central coordinator would decide
how to react. For example, if a student is
threatening other students in a class, the coor-

dinator could bar them from the classroom.
Within ten days, the council has said, the
University would have the right to call a
hearing to determine how to handle the
student. Otherwise, any restrictions placed on
the accused would be void.
THE COUNCIL yesterday agreed to allow
the accused to appeal the central coordinator's
decision before the hearing.
Such an appeal, would only deal with whether
the coordinator's sanction is too severe, not
whether or not the sanction is justified. "We
should leave questions like 'who hit the first,'
up to the hearing, said Susan Eklund, assistant
dean of the law school. '
The council also, gave the coordinator the
right to change a sanction if, for example, new
evidence showed the accused posed a greater
threat than previously thought.

Pretty good food replaces
Chinese food in MUG

By AMY D. GOLDSTEIN
Students searching for supper at the Union this term
will have to go elsewhere if they want Chinese cuisine.
Forbidden City restaurant, which had previously oc-
cupied a spot in the Union basement, has moved out and
has been replaced by Curt's Pretty Good Food, which
specializes in fried chicken.
THE CHINESE restaurant moved on December 20
because its owners wanted to concentrate their efforts on
their full-service restaurants in Ann Arbor.
Jim Bee, manager of the restaurants, said that they
moved out of the Union because they were "having a hard
time controlling their employees." The problems stem-
med from student scheduling, especially during exams
when nobody wanted to work.
Bee also said that Forbidden City was pulled out to
avoid damaging their reputation. "When the owner is not
there, it is hard to give the best product to the customer,
and we feel that it hurts our name."
Its replacement, Curt's Pretty Good Food, is the brain-
child of Curt Atkinson, the chief chef of the Union for the
past two years.
The restaurant is a culminiation of Atkinson's life ex-

perience. The decor in the stand is filled with parapher-
nalia from Atkinson's childhood. "I tried to decorate it
like my grandmother's kitchen, like I remember it from
when I was a kid," he said. As many Southern ladies
decorated their kitchens, Atkinson has hung cooking uten-
sils on the walls along with other momentos from his life,
right down to a decorative ham made out of dough when
he was a kid. His guitar and magazines from when he was
young also help create the effect.
Though Curt's has only been open for two days, its fried
chicken cuisine and low prices have already attracted
crowds. "If the past two days are any indication, (Curt's)
will be the hottest place in here," said Atkinson. "It's fast,
hot, people can get a good, nourishing meal and get in and
out in a hurry."
The meals are priced to "take care of the academic
community, so students can afford it, and at the same
time we're serving the community."
Curt's Pretty Good Food is part of the Union's master
plan for the ground floor. They are also planning to ex-
pand the seating capacity and put in another new eatery,
Spuds, late this term. It's motto will be "This Spud's for
you."
