Group seeks to educate
students about code
By ALYSSA LUSTIGMAN
Just a few of years ago, most
students knew what the slogan "No
Code" meant. But since the debate
shifted from the Diag to the internal
hagglings of the University
committee assigned to hammer out,
a compromise, some student leaders
fear many students are now unaware
of the issue.
As a result, members of the
Student Rights Committee, a
branch of the Michigan Student
Assembly that is involved with
fighting the code, have been
visiting residence halls this month
to educate house councils about the
"We're trying to educate people
about the code, so if something
occurs, people will have a general
idea of what is going on," said Julie
Murray, vice chair of the
committee. "We speak of what the
code is, and try to get student
feedback." In addition to speaking at
each University residence hall, SRC
members plan to visit sororities,
fraternities, and cooperatives.
The debate has revolved around
whether the University should
implement a set of guidelines to
govern the non-academic behavior
of students, faculty, and staff.
Students have opposed the "code,"
saying it would violate civil rights,
but have feared that the ad-
ministration would pass a code
without their approval.
"We start with the dorms first,
because many freshman don't know
what the code is," Murray added.
She said students seem to support
the code more this year because
they feel it would help fight racism
and sexual assault.
The dormitory visits have
sparked a great deal of debate. Chip
Yeager, vice president of the
Mosher-Jordan House Council said
that, while "interest was high,"
some have complained that the
SRC representatives are presenting
a biased view of the code. "We got
very well informed on one side, but
we didn't really get the reasons
why," Yeager added.
"When we go in to speak to the
councils, we give them a picture of
the issue, and even if it is biased, it
gives them something to think
about," said Murray. Debates about
the code, she added, show that
people are thinking about the issue.
Many of the residence halls are
interested in setting up a forum
with one side supporting the code
and one side, represented by the
SRC, against it. "Everyone has
heard 'no code', but very few people
have heard the other side," said
Fouzia Kiani, president of the
Residence Halls Association.
Murray said that SRC would be
glad to debate the issue, but "no
one will take the pro-code side."

Division Street ftre kills Ann Arbor man
By JEFF HUGHES
A malfunctioning electric space
heater is believed to have caused a
fire at 732 South Division St. that
killed an Ann Arbor man yesterday
morning, a fire official said.
The victim, identified as Duane
Morhs, was found dead at the scene
of the fire, said Ann Arbor Fire
Marshall Wesley Prater. "There was
no attempt. at mouth-to-mouth or
CPR," Prater said.
. Morhs was taken directly to
University Medical Center, where
smoke inhalation was determined to
be the cause of death, said Toni
Shears, a public information officer
for the medical center.
. Susi Martin, senior secretary for
the Ann Arbor Fire Department, said
that five rescue vehicles responded to
the 7:09 a.m call. Martin, reading
from a fire report, said that the blaze
was "completely extinguished" by
7:29 a.m. Estimates on damages
Morhs was found in the second
story bathroom of the home, where
the blaze is believed to have started.
Firefighters observed smoke coming
from a window in the second story of
No injuries were sustained in
putting out the fire, but firefighters
had difficulties in entering the home.
Both the front and side doors were
blocked by piles of old newspapers
four to five feet high. Martin said old
newspapers - some stacks reaching
several feet high - were found
throughout the home. him. I'd never even seen him," said
Ashley Pratt, an LSA junior.
Firefighters finally gained entrance "I know his parents live close, and
by climbing though a window at the would come over sometimes. But

Most of the neighboring residents said Ray Williams, a neighbor of

contact with Morhs. "I didn't know last time I talked to him."

Medical School prof.
receives Kellogg grant
By LISA POLLAK
Not all the research projects done
at the University's Medical Center
are hard to pronounce, computerized,
or focused on the intricate biological
functions of furry lab animals.
In fact, the W.K. Kellogg
Foundation of Battle Creek last
month awarded over $300,000 to an
associate professor in the Department
of Internal Medicine to improve the

not have had "the stomach for what
Mark does." Kernan described Scott's
style on the radio as "outrageous."
"Mark Scott has always achieved
any level of notariety by being
outrageous," he said.
Kernan said WWJ brought Scott
to the station to attract his listeners,
but later decided it didn't want the
disc jockey's outrageous broadcast
"They bought a package plan but
didn't want part of the package,"
Kernan said. "(WWJ) might have
checked elsewhere for a less
outrageous talk show host."
Archer said Scott will continue to
work for WWJ in a yet undecided
position until his one-year contract
expires. Scott had done only eight
shows before he was taken off the

But Dr. James Woolliscroft, the
project's prinicipal investigator, ex-
plained yesterday that he is actually
reorganizing the traditional method of
recording a patient's medical history,
so that doctors and dentists can more
easily use the information.
Patients shouldn't worry, however
- the information sheet won't be
any harder to fill out.
"We're just reorganizing it,"
Woolliscroft said. "So that the
patient's genetic and other risk
factors are explicitly presented in one
cohesive section, with another
section for their social history."
Studies show that physicians and
dentists often pay little attention to
these charts, Woolliscroft added, and
ignore the patient's risk of cancer and
other potentially preventable
