Students question housing
offic ials about asbso

By BRIAN BONET
Most members of the Senate
Advisory Committee of University
Affairs (SACUA) agreed yesterday
that a document concerning
academic misconduct of faculty
members is an improvement on a
1984 report, but not yet ready to be
considered for University policy
The update, titled "Maintaining
the Integrity of Scholarship," was
written by the office of University
Vice President for Research Linda
Wilson. The report and update
suggests procedures to be used if
any University research is suspected
of being untruthful and includes the
standards by which integrity could
be judged.
SACUA members found fault
with the draft, saying that it could
force an accused researcher to face
two formal investigations. An
investigation is required within the
current draft, and a second
investigation is mandated by
University Board of Regents bylaw
5.09.
SACUA members also criticized
the document because they say it
doesn't assume the innocence of the
accused.
"YOU DON'T get the feeling
that the person has a chance of
being innocent," said SACUA
president William Stebbins, "It's
not well-written in that aspect.
"If we could change the wording
to show that it is protecting the
individual in question, then maybe

we can help it," he added.
Charles Lehmann, a professor of
education, agreed. "The language is
unclear. It seems to protect the
University." Lehmann said the
document portrays "the attitude that
you are guilty until proven
innocent."
Stebbins said that there is a "real
urgency" to get a report out on
academic misconduct because the
federal government is pressuring
universities nationwide to establish
such rules.
SACUA members also said the
report must clarify when accused
parties should be informed of
accusations against them.
Stebbins said the accused should
be informed immediately after the
alleged crime. Each SACUA
member seemed to agree with his
statement.
"The person should know as
soon as the accusations are voiced,"
said Stebbins.
Although most members viewed
the new, shorter draft as an
improvement, they failed to agree
on its effectiveness.

For example, social work Prof.
Beth Reed said although the draft is
better than the original draft, she
feels limited by it because it is
shorter and is therefore less
comprehensive.

San Facon said a "negative air
machine" monitors the asbestos
level in the air of each bathroom
during removal. He said 11 of the
Lloyd bathrooms have been studied
and meet the University's standard,
which are stricter than state and
federal regulations. He said,
however, that the air in one of the
bathrooms registered very high

levels of asbestos because a worker
for the hired agency left the crawl-
space door open, and some asbestos
particles escaped into the air.
Monroe said asbestos was not
hazardous elsewhere in the building,
such as inside radiators. He
explained that asbestos only poses a
threat when it chips and gets into
the air. Monroe said, for example,
that exposed asbestos-covered pipes

in Mosher-Jordan Hall have become
dangerous because students kick,
hit, or hang clothes on the pipes,
causing the asbestos to chip.
SanFacon said removal takes one
to one and one-half days per
restroom and estimated the
procedure will continue "a few more
weeks." He added that asbestos is
present in about 75 percent of all
campus buildings.

Students cram campus computer centers

the hours for the end of the
semester and our eventual goal is to
get enough high-quality access to
have one computer for every 15
students in the University.".
Deb Masten, a computing center
consultant, said that, in the
meantime, longer hours will be
instituted beginning Dec. . Fo .
example, the School of Public
Health, which is currently open 87
hours a week, will be open108
hours a week, she said.
WHILE MANY people waited
at the UNYN and UGLi Sunday
night, only seven people waited for
computers at the School of Nursing
in the North Ingalls Building.
"Students would be better to take
the time to go to the centers that
are not being used even if they are
not as centrally located," Mayer
suggested.

However, students waiting at the
UGLi computer center yesterday
said there are enough computers but
not enough hours.
"The University spent a lot of
money to have 25 brand new
computers put into the West
Engineering building, but the center
is only open from 6 p.m. to 10
p.m., Monday through Friday," said
LSA junior Stephen Levy.
There are 812 terminals open to
the public, excluding the 300
terminals reserved for business and
engineering students. There are
currently 429 Macintosh, 265
Zenith, and 118 other computers
including Ontel, Decwriters, and
Visual 550s (graphic writers). This
number has increased by 600 in
the last year, according to Masten.
ALL University students pay a
$100 computer fee each term to use

those computers. Business and
engineering students pay an
additional mandatory $50 fee.
"By the beginning of Fall '87
term we want to try to get that

them.
Computers use is constantly
reevaluated, officials say. For
example, when the UGLi opened
with only Zenith computers,

number up by an additional 350
computers," said Masten.
Although residence halls also
have computers, only residents can
use them because the Housing
Division put in a lot of money to
open, operate, and remodel the
stations, according to Masten.
While many students wait in
line for Macintoshes, students who
use Zenith computers don't contend
with the long waits.
"I only use Zenith and I can
come any time of the day with a
one- or 20-page paper and not worry
about missing a deadline because I
never have to wait," said LSA
senior Larry Emmons.
Many students wonder why the
University does not increase the
number of Macintoshes, and
decrease Zeniths. Masten says there
are "educational applications" for
Zeniths and faculty members use

student patterns showed a need for
more Macintosh computers on
campus. Currently 24 Macintoshes
are in the UGLi.
Van Houweling said that
students needs are monitored and
computer use is constantly being
re-evaluated.
The computer expansion
program is on schedule, he said.
"We would be able to have more
work stations but we have run out
of good space," said Van
Houweling. "The cost to
rennovate the space available is
very expensive."
