Chair to
quit 'U'

The unexpected early resignation
of University Council co-chair
Donald Rucknagel has burdened the
council with many uncertainties as
it continues drafting a code of non-
academic conduct.
"I don't think that I can do
anything meaningful for the council
anymore," said Rucknagel, a pro-
fessor of internal medicine. "There
is more that we can accomplish
because we haven't agreed upon the
fundamental issues." Rucknagel had
planned to leave the University in
late January to assume leadership of
a sickle-cell anemia center in
Atlanta, Ga. His early resignation
has left the council with a gap that
all agree needs to be quickly filled.
According to faculty senate chai-
rman William Stebbins, replacing
Rucknagel may be difficult. "We
have already been looking for over a
month, but have yet to find
someone who is willing to assume
a position of such responsibility
and commitment," said Stebbins,
who is in charge of finding the
R U C K N A G E L'S departure
has left the leadership of the council
to student co-chair Nicole Diller, a
former member of the Civil Liber-
ties Board. "I'm sure that the
council will continue, but we really
need to get the vacancies filled,
qui ily," said Diller,
The council, composed of
students, faculty, and admini-
strators, has been working under
Rucknagel's guidance in its draft of
the code since October 1984. Its
slow progress has led to speculation
that the University administration
may bypass the council and
implement its own code if the
council doesn't present its version

'I don't think thatI can do
anything meaningful for
the council anymore.'
- Donald Rucknagel,
University Council co-
University administrators feel
that a code is necessary because it
would provide the University with
an additional court system to
supplement what they see as an
inadequate civil court system.
One of Rucknagel's major goals
was to conclude the council's draft
by last month. Although the
council made significant progress in
establishing guidelines for political
dissent last term, he was frustrated
by how far it has to go before
presenting a final version to
University community.
"The faculty seem to know what
he has gone through," Stebbins
ALTHOUGH the council may
have far to go, last December
marked the virtual completion of
guidelines for political protest, the
second of three controversial tiers
that the council plans to tackle.
"This seemed like a convenient
stopping point," Rucknagel said.
Members of the council hoped
to design an alternative to the
administration's code proposal-
which has been rejected by the
Michigan Student Assembly.- by
dividing discussion of the proposed
code into the emergency procedures
for the most violent crimes,
political dissent, and less violent
crimes such as assault.
MSA has the right to approve
any code draft, but has already

Iranian missiles hit Baghdad a 3

NICOSIA, Cyprus (AP) - Iran launched missile
attacks yesterday against Iraq's capital of Baghdad and
the southern port city of Basra. Iraq said it hit back
with a "devastating" air raid on Ayatollah Ruhollah
Khomeni's holy city of Qom.
Fierce ground fighting was reported for a third
straight day. Communiques from both sides indicated
Iran's forces were still on the offensive near Basra.
Tehran radio claimed Iranian troops killed or
wounded 14,000 Iraqi soldiers and captured 1,000 since
the offensive, called Karbala-5, began early Friday.
An unidentified Iraqi field commander quoted by

Iraq's official news agency said Iran lost 250 tanks in
heavy overnight fighting, with Iranian casualties
including at least 5,000 dead.
The claims, monitored in Nicosia, could not be
substantiated because both sides severly restrict foreign
correspondents' access to the battle zones.
Iran had threatened to launch a decisive "final
offensive" in the 6-year-old Persian Gulf war before the
Iranian new year, or Noruz, on March 21. The
objective appeared to be the capture or encirclement of
Basra, Iraq's second largest city with a population of
about 1 million.
