Purdue
slips by
Michigan,
91-87
By GREG MOLZON
Just like last year's contest be-
tween the two schools, not many of
the 13,609 fans jammed into Crisler
Arena will soon forget the classic
game put on by Purdue and Michigan
yesterday.
Only the memories will be differ-
ent. Michigan destroyed the Boiler-
makers last season, 104-68, on the
final day of the season, but Purdue
got revenge by winning this year's
battle, 91-87.
A SCREAMING capacity
crowd and a national television audi-
ence saw a back and forth contest,
featuring great play by both teams,
that wasn't decided until the final
minute of play.
"You guys might want to be
critical of us, but I think (Purdue)
played a great basketball game and I
think we played pretty well," Michi-
gan head coach Bill Frieder said. "It
doesn't happen often in athletics, but
sometimes you have to say it was a
great game between two excellent
teams, and it's unfortunate someone
had to lose."
The teams entered the game tied
for first place in the Big Ten, but the
win enabled the Boilermakers to take
over sole possession of the confer-
ence lead with an 8-1 record (19-2
overall). At the halfway point of
conference play, Michigan is now 7-
} 2 in the Big Ten, 18-4 overall. The
loss ended Michigan's 12-game home
winning streak.
Reserve guard Tony Jones hit
three of four free throws in the final
23 seconds of the game to seal the
win for the Boilermakers.

alternative
to 'code'
Student proposal
exc ludes sanc tions

By STEVE KNOPPER
The Michigan Student Assembly
has been criticized because of its
informal stance against Interim
University President Robben
Fleming's draft proposal to deter
student misconduct. But yesterday,
MSA's Student Rights Committee
drafted an alternative to the proposal.
The 10-section plan does not
suggest any academic sanctions for
non-academic misconduct, but instead
calls for:
-Absolutely no University
punishment, unless a student is
convicted of homicide, rape, arson, or
other serious crimes by a civil court.
-Informal negotiation between the
University and the student accused of
breaking a local law. If the two still
disagree, a neutral mediator would be
called in to help resolve the dispute.
As a last resort, the University would
take action through the civil and
criminal courts.
-An Office of Discrimination
Prevention and Awareness. Though
this office would have no jurisdiction
over students, its staff, faculty, and
student workers would counsel
victims of discriminatory attacks and
oversee University classes involving
racism and sexism.

"A clause limiting administrative
power under regental bylaw 2.01,
which allows the president to
promote the "maintenance of health,
diligence, and order among the
students."
Fleming proposed a document last
month to deter student harassment
and discrimination with academic
punishments, 'such as probation or
suspension. He hasn't said when, or
if, his proposal will go into effect;
he has maintained, however, that it
fosters critical debate among the
University community.
"In the sense that MSA is
entering into the debate President
Fleming called for, that's very
constructive," Regent Deane Baker
(R-Ann Arbor) said yesterday. Baker,
however, said he had not seen MSA's
proposal, and could not comment on
it.
MSA's proposal has not been
officially accepted by the assembly,
though MSA President Ken Weine
said he expected it to pass during
Tuesday night's meeting.
"We think it's a pretty good
proposal. It's something to work
with," said Mike Phillips, chair of
the Student Rights Committee. "It

'Presidential hopefuls shine at Iowa caucusses

Jackson gains respect
as a viable candidate

Special to The Daily
DES MOINES, Iowa - The
weekend before the Iowa caucusses,
Presidential candidates were traveling
throughout the state, making one last
effort to get out the .vote.
Democratic candidate Reverend
Jesse Jackson tried to relieve the
apprehension of his supporters, many
of whom had never participated in a
caucus before, by explaining the
process whereby neighborhoods

ipporters
assemble and discuss the candidates
before voting. He said to the diverse
audience, "Poor folk steal... rich folk
embezzle. Rich folks caucus. We're
going to get together."
He encouraged the vocal audience
to get to the voting places tonight,
whatever the weather, and despite
Jackson's low showing in recent
polls. He said, "The race does not go
to the swift or the strong, but to
those who hold out."

Daily News Analysis
DES MOINES, Iowa - As a
packed crowd in the small Iowa
union hall prepares to h e a r
Democratic Presidential nominee
Jesse Jackson speak, the man making
the introduction tells the group,
"Jesse's the best thing that's ever
happened to the Democratic party."
Though the campaign trail is filled
with meaningless rhetoric, this claim
may be valid.
Four years ago when Jackson
made his first run for the Presidency,
he was called the "angry Black
candidate" - a title he tried to play

down by saying his supporters were a
Rainbow Coalition made up of all
races.
Jackson had never run for office
before, and the novice candidate made
numerous errors in 1984. His
reference to Northeastern Jews as
"Hymies" led many Democratic
leaders to accuse him of undermining
the traditional Black/Jewish coalition
that has been a vital part of the party
for over 40 years.
During an electrifying speech at
the National Convention, Jackson
apologized for his mistakes, saying,

EMU official may show conflict of interests

By ADAM SCHRAGER
Eastern Michigan's associate athletic director
possibly violated conflict of interest laws - but
not National Collegiate Athletic Association
regulations - in receiving free use of a dealer-
ship automobile in exchange for private use of
the school's athletic facilities.
According to the former sales manager of Yp-
silanti's Davis Buick-GMC-Nissan, Eastern's
John Nordlinger accepted the car in exchange for
the use of Eastern's football field, Rynearson

Stadium, in the car dealership's cable television
commercial. The commercial ran on Columbia
Cable's ESPN throughout the month of Decem-
ber.
The commercial showed an actor wearing an
Eastern football jersey and posing as the team's
place kicker. As the actor kicks the ball through
the uprights, the camera focuses on the goal
posts, under which are the cars of the Davis Nis-
san-Buick-GMC dealership.
Former Davis sales manager Robert McAn-

ulty, who organized the filming of the commer-
cial with Nordlinger, said, "When we contributed
the car to Nordlinger, we got the field. We gave
the car to him at no cost at all."
A representative of Michigan Student Legal
Services said the exchange seems a violation of
conflict of interest laws.
"If someone received an economic advantage
in a commercial advertisement, and it was the
