IOWA CITY - Two weeks still remain in the Big
Ten basketball season, but the race for the conference
championship is all but over.
Iowa's 95-87 victory over Michigan Saturday at
Carver-Hawkeye Arena made sure of that.
The loss leaves the second-place Wolverines (22-5
overall, 11-3 in the Big Ten) two games behind first-
place Purdue with four games to go -and no longer
thinking Big Ten championship.
"Yes, our focus is now on the NCAA tournament,"
Michigan coach Bill Frieder said. "You can forget
about the Big Ten. Purdue isn't going to lose anymore,
except maybe to Michigan."
WHEN THE WOLVERINES erased a 54-43
halftime deficit against the Hawkeyes and took a 71-63
lead midway through the second half, it appeared next
Saturday's game with the Boilermakers in West
Lafayette would decide the conference winner.
But as the Hawkeyes did in the first half, they came
from behind and took the lead for good, 86-85, when
center Ed Horton sank a turnaround jumper with 2:41
Iowa outscored Michigan, 16-4, in the closing five
minutes. Detroit native B.J. Armstrong aided in sealing
the win with four free throws late in the contest as

Interim University President Robben Fleming said
yesterday he will publicly release a "very substantially
revised version" of his controversial draft document to
deter discriminatory behavior through academic pun-
The new draft, he said, will be published in today's
University Record. He said it will respond to commu-
nity criticism that the original draft limits students'
First Amendment rights and fails to set up a legitimate
hearing process for students. lHe would not elaborate
Vice President for Government Relations Richard
Kennedy said Fleming plans to discuss the new docu-
ment with the executive officers during a meeting to-
Fleming's original draft has invoked much debate -
written alternatives, formal suggestions, and public
protest - since it was released in early January for
The first draft would impose suspension or proba-
tion for students who harass other students through
physical contact or written or spoken language. Hear-
ing panels set up by the deans of the 17 schools and
colleges would judge a student's guilt or innocence.
Many have praised Fleming's proposal for taking
the first step in battling racism on campus, but others
have maintained that Fleming's proposal is a unilateral
attempt to control student behavior.
In his original draft, Fleming said he would invoke
regental bylaw 2.01, which allows the president to
provide for the "maintenance of the health, diligence,
and order among the students."
In doing so, he said he would bypass bylaw 7.02,
which states that any change in behavioral rules must
pass through the University Council, a nine-member
board of students, faculty, and administrators. It also
must be ratified by the Michigan Student Assembly
and the faculty's Senate Advisory Committee on Uni-
So far, MSA, the faculty's Civil Liberties Board,
and several regents have commented on the draft. Last
month, MSA passed a written alternative that would
impose no sanctions upon students unless they have
been found guilty by the civil court system.

'U', state officials confer on budget

Special to the Daily
FLINT - In a meeting with state
senators on Friday, University officials
stressed the "disappointing" increase of
only one percent in state aid, saying
Gov. James Blanchard should make
higher education a top priority in his
"(The State of Michigan) has a his-
toric strength in the education field,"
Interim University President Robben
Fleming told the Senate Appropriations
Subcommittee on Higher Education. "If
that strength is to continue... it seems
to me it .has to be made one of the
highest priorities in the state."
"I am disappointed that the executive
recommendation failed to give a higher
priority to higher education," he said in
a written response to a subcommittee
questionnaire sent to all state universi-
ties. "In the context of what is possible,
I would recommend that a greater share
be invested in higher education because
it is so critical for the future growth of
The meeting was the second of four
hearings the subcommittee will have at
locations around the state to hear from
each of Michigan's public universities.
Both Fleming and James Duderstadt,
University vice president for academic
affairs and provost, emphasized the shift
in the American workplace away from a
"blue collar," labor-intensive society
toward a "white collar," knowledge-
"Knowledge workers are becoming
the cornerstone of the economy,"
Duderstadt said. He added that the uni-
versities' role is to produce those
knowledge-workers for society's benefit.
Fleming also stressed the decreasing
financial contribution by the state into
the University's general fund - the
$500 million main operating fund that,
among other things, pays salaries and
buys library books.
If the governor's proposed budget is
enacted and tuition is raised 10 percent,
the state next year would carry 47 per-
cent of the general fund budget, and tu-
ition would carry 44 percent, Fleming
said, hypothetically. This, he added, re-
flects a broader trend in the state's rela-
tion to the University.
Although officials won't be specific
at this time, most are talking about
double-digit tuition increases. Sen.
William Sederburg (R-East Lansing),
chair of the subcommittee, has predicted
tuition hikes of 10 to 13 percent across
the board for Michigan public universi-
