Dollar changes to be
subtle, Treasury says

Traditionalists rejoice. The green-
back is staying green.
No more jokes about the dollar
being dead the day it's colored red.
IN FACT, the upcoming changes in
U.S. currency aimed at making it
harder to counterfeit may not even be
noticeable at first glance.
"We are not going to change the
color and we are not changing the por-
traits. Any changes will be subtle,"
U.S. Treasurer Katherine Ortega said
in an interview.
While Ortega's words are aimed at
calming jittery nerves over just what
the government has in store for the
money, not everyone is assured.
RON PAUL, a former Republican
congressman from Texas who was
defeated in a 1984 Senate bid,
questions the government's motives
in making the changes, charging that
something other than a desire to th-
wart counterfeiters is at work.
The deep down motivation is to find
out where the money is," he warns.
"It is direct attack on the privacy of

Paul paints a scenario where the
government would put metal threads
in the currency and then use metal
detectors to find where people have
stashed large sumes of cash.
ANOTHER possibility, Paul con-
tends, is that the government will
require that the old cash be turned in
for new money, all under the eagle
eye of the Internal Revenue Service.
But Treasury Department officials
say these fears are groundless.
They say the new bills will move in-
to circulation gradually as old bills
are withdrawn and all old currency
will remain legal tender.
ORTEGA said no final decisions on
changes have been made by Treasury
Secretary James A. Baker III.
Oretega said whatever changes
Baker approves will take 12 to 18 mon-
ths to put into effect. Thus, Americans
are not likely to see even minor
changes much before 1988.



Warning of code puts

the University community. The
University has not done a very good
job of this in recent years. Many of
our standards are scattered among a
variety of policy statements."
Contributing to the confusion, said
Dan Sharphorn, assistant policy ad-
visor to the vice president for
academic affairs, is the vagueness of
the current rules' language. Instead
of listing specific crimes as murder,
theft, or trespassing, the current rules
list only vague terms as "physical
force," "property offenses," and "in-
terference" as its crimes.
"IF THE terms are vague, we're
not giving adequate notice (on what's
considered unacceptable)," Shar-
phorn said.
Given these problems, the Univer-
sity Council, in early 1983, released its
first draft of the code. Based largely
on codes of conduct at other univer-
sities, most notably the University of
Maryland, the draft established san-
ctions ranging from reprimand to
expulsion for a wide variety of non-
academic acts.
The draft replaced the vagueries of
the current rules, for example,
replacing "physical force" with
several crimes including "inten-
tionally or recklessly causing
physical harm to a person, or inten-
tionally or recklessly causing ap-
prehension of such harm."
THE DRAFT also included sexual
harassment, arson, and hazing among
its list of crimes. Addressing the rape
problem was one of the council's main

valued at $30,000 and begin work as a technical manager with
immediate responsibility and authority. This is the only program
of its kind in the world.
To qualify you must be between the ages of nineteen and

concerns, communications Prof.
William Colburn, then-chair of the
council, said.
But only five days after the draft
was released, it was rejected by the
Michigan Student Assembly. Student
opposition to the code, however, was
still sparse, with MSA's rejection
coming by only a vote of 16-14. MSA
would unanimously vote against later
drafts of the code. The assembly also
said in 1983 that it was not opposed to
the "concept" of a code.
Over the remainder of that year, the
council would revise its first draft
three times; each draft encountering
more opposition from students, but
none differing much from the others.
It was also over this year that studen-
ts began organizing against the code.
Before then, "nobody really thought of
it as much of a threat. But when we
started to actually see the proposals,
we knew they (the administration)
was serious,"hsaid Eric Schnaufer, co-
founder of the "No Code" movement
on campus.
"NO CODE" would become the cat-
ch-phrase for student activists on
campus over the next couple of years.
Stickers, bearing the slogan would
cover kiosks on the Diag that fall. But
the slogan was deceptive, Schnaufer
"We weren't opposed to the concept
of a code, but we thought it was
politically improbable that the
University would propose a just one,"
Schnaufer said.
One of the biggest dangers students
saw in the code proposals, Schnaufer
said, was a possible crackdown on
campus protests.
UNDER THE current rules, the
University can take little action -
outside of calling the police - against
protesters, who, for example, disrupt
a laboratory doing research related to
the military. But under the council's
four drafts that year, it prohibits "in-
tentionally or recklessly interfering
with normal University or University
sponsored activities."
The provision, if it had been in
place, could have been used against
students who protested recruitment
by the Central Intelligence Agency
last fall. Administrators could expel
student leaders, Schnauferesaid, or
more likely, use the threat of ex-
pulsion to discourage students from
taking part in protests.
"The administration wants to stifle,
if not totally put down dissent,"
Schnaufer said. "They want to protect
its image as a positive university,
cleared of all conflict. It doesn't help
when students are calling the Univer-
sity facist."
ANOTHER concern among the
students, said Jonathan Rose, former
director of Student Legal Services,
and one of several non-students who
opposed the code, was a fear of
changes in the future. While the
code's original drafters may have

Peres pushes
Israel - Egypt pact
JERUSALEM - The Israeli government yesterday considered a long-
debated package of agreements designed to improve relations with
Egypt by solving a lingering border dispute and reaching trade, tourism
and cultural agreements.
Aides said Prime Minister Shimon Peres might bring down the gover-
nment if the inner Cabinet, a group of 10 ministers drawn from the, 25-
member Cabinet to handle policy matters, did not approve the accords.
But analysts said there was "every likelihood" that the pact would be ap-
proved, averting a crisis.
Peres, leader of the centrist Labor party, and Foreign Minister Yitzhak
Shamir, head of the right-wing Likud party, had clashed on the
agreements. The two men are the key partners in Israel's 17-month-old
coalition government. Under a unique coalition agreement, they are to
switch positions in September.
West German foreign rinister
fears Libyan assassination plot
TRIPOLI, Libya - A senior official yesterday dismissed "as a figure speech"
an invitation by Libyan leader Col. Moammar Khadafy for President
Reagan to visit the north African nation.
In another development, Libya was reported to have ordered the
assassination of West Germany's foreign minister.
A newspaper in Bonn, West Germany, said West German Foreign
Minister Hans-Dietrich Genscher was provided extra protection after an
unidentified Arab country warned that Libya had assigned a Palestinian
terrorist to kill him.
Bild, a Sonntag newspaper, known for its excellent sources within West
Germany's security agencies, did not say why Genscher would be the
target of a Libyan assassination plot.
Space shuttle blasts off
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. - The shuttle Columbia shrugged off a
record string of delays with a roar of triumph yesterday splashing the
dawn sky with a geyser of fire as it streaked into orbit 25 days late with a
congressman on board.
The astronauts completed the mission's No. I objective nine and a half.
hours later when they sent a powerful television satellite spinning out of
the ship's cargo bay, earning NASA $14 million in delivery fees.
"Excellent work, Columbia," said Jim Wetherbee in mission control.
"You've given us a lot of hard work over the past couple of months and we.
really appreciate it."

small as three feet across for the first time.
Top black activist killed in
S.A. before State Dept visit
JOHANNESBURG, South Africa - The State Department's top
African expert toured Johannesburg's trash-ridden black townships
yesterday hours after a black activist who was to be one of his hosts was
hacked to death by political rivals.
Ampie Mayisa, 58, was chased from his home in Leandra township 74
miles east of Johannesburg, and killed by about 10 blacks ranging in age
from 16 to 30 about two hours after sundown Saturday, according to his
son, Joshua Mayisa, and other Leandra residents.
Yesterday Chester Crocker, assistant secretary of state for African af-
fairs, arrived for talks on independence for South-West Africa, also
known as Namibia, and on the civil war in Angola, which is related to
Namibian issues. Crocker was in Luanda, the Angolan capital, on
He was tight-lipped while touring the rutted streets of KwaThema,
Dudza and Katlehong, slums east of Johannesburg.

press statement," he said.
U.S. conservatives endorse
Aquino in Philippine election
WASHINGTON - A private conservative group with close ties to the Reagan
administration yesterday endorsed Corazon Aquino, who is challenging
Ferdinand Marcos in a Feb. 7 election for president of the Philippines.
The National Defense Council, which has been a prominent supporter of
President Reagan's policies in Central America, said "Mrs. Aquino ex
presses democratic and anti-communist views.
"In order for democracy to be reborn in the Philippines, there must be
a change from the monopolistic and authoritarian position of the current

government," the defense council said in a statement. "A peaceable
change must occur and it must occur now."
The council's decision to back Mrs. Aquino, the widow of assassinated
opposition leader Benigno Aquino, reflects a split in American conser-
vative ranks over Marcos, who has been praised as a bulwark against
communism by Moral Majority founder, the Rev. Jerry Falwell. Other
conservatives have expressed doubts about Mrs. Aquino's political
