falls to Fighting Irish

A heavily-revised University pol-
icy that punishes students for dis-
crimination and harassment was put
into effect Friday by University
President James Duderstadt.
Duderstadt announced the enact-
ment of an interim policy on dis-
crimination and discriminatory con-
duct to the University's Board of
Regents at its monthly meeting
Friday morning.
The president used the powers
given him under Regental Bylaw
2.01, which allowedehim to put the
policy in place without a vote of the
regents.
Last month, a federal court struck
down many parts of the original pol-
icy, which was passed by the regents
in March, 1988. Duderstadt said the
new policy, like the old one, aims to
"protect the rights of all our students
to learn free from harassment."
The policy is less vague and
broad than the original policy, which
Judge Avern Cohn ruled unconstitu-
tional after a challenge by the
American Civil Liberties Union.
Cohn said the policy, which pro-
hibited verbal conduct that stigma-
tizes an individual in an academic
setting, violated the First
Amendment.
University General Counsel Elsa
Cole, who helped write the new pol-
icy, compared it with the old policy:
"The difference in this policy is that

we are focusing right now on injury
directed at a person with the purpose
of harming an individual, as opposed
to aimed at a group with no intent to
injure."
Under the new policy, a student
could be punished if a racial epithet
were made to a person with the in-
tent to harm, but not if a comment:
deemed racist was made during a:
classroom discussion. Under the old

University President James
Duderstadt was in a bind last week.'
Because the original anti-discrim-
ination policy was declared unconsti-
tutional, he wanted the University's
Board of Regents to enact a new in-
terim policy at its monthly meeting,
which was held last Thursday and
Friday.

After Raghib "Rocket" Ismail
had returned the second half kickoff
for 88 yards and a touchdown, Notre
Dame head coach Lou Holtz didn't
figure his sophomore speedster
would get any more special teams
action for the rest of the game.
"When the second kick came, I
figured they were going to squib
it," said Holtz. "When they kicked
it deep, someone behind me said,
'Oh boy, here we go again."'
Ismail took the second kickoff
back 91 yards for his second touch-
down and the deciding points in de-
fending National Champion and
No. 1 ranked Notre Dame's 24-19

Wolverines.
"(Ismail) might be the best that
I've ever seen," said Michigan spe-
cial teams coach and head coach Bo
Schembechler. "He's faster than the
speed of sound. We couldn't tackle
him."
The Wilkes-Barre, Pa. native,
who was undefeated on the Irish in-
door track squad last spring, set an
all-time Notre Dame record for
kickoff returns for touchdowns with
a total of four. Last year against

Rice, Ismail also returned two kicks
for touchdowns.
"It would be unfair to just give
me the game ball," said Ismail,
whose two brothers are nicknamed
"The Bomb" and "The Missile."
"The entire return team deserves
game balls. All I have to do is
catch the ball and run. They've got
the hard iob"
Michigan quarterback Michael
Taylor did not throw a pass in prac-
tice all week and suffered a sore
back when scrambling in the third

quarter. His status for this
Saturday's game against UCLA is
still uncertain.
