students," Frank said. He said the
bylaw was most likely intended to
be used only in emergency situa-
tions, when no University system
existed to handle a problem, and
when there was no time for the re-
gents to act.
"I don't want to belittle a serious
problem that should be addressed,"
Frank said. "But I don't know that
iC's the president's role to do this."
But for administrators who sup-
port a conduct code outlining regula-

example of why a code is needed.

tinued development in Ann Arbor.
"We should encourage careful devel-
opment, and only development that
we need," said Councilmember Larry
Hunter (D-First Ward).
James Marsh, a Demo-
cratic/Green candidate from the
Fourth Ward, said the city needs to
assess what development has given
to and taken from the city.
"(Unrestrained development) is creat-
ing a climate that is making the city
uninhabitable," Marsh said. "We
need to place limits on growth so
that everyone can live in Ann Ar-

Thomas Richardson, an incumbent
in the Fifth Ward, said prosperity
and growth are not frightening to
him. He stressed Ann Arbor's re-

administrators do not feel the author-
ity to do so should be only be vested
in the president.
"(Copeland's case) really spells
out the reason why it's appropriate
to have a set of rules and a method
of enforcing them," Regent Thomas
Roach (D-Saline) said yesterday.
"People should not be injured;
they should be safe and secure. Prop-
erty should not be damaged," Roach
said adding that any incident involv-
ing injury or a threat of injury
should be the University's concern.
But Roach said punishment
should not be arbitrary. "Why should
it be left to an ad hoc determination
of the office of the president every
time there's a question of miscon-
duct?" he asked. Roach said having a
code would provide a structured way
to deal with student's non-academic
Richard Kennedy, vice president
for government relations and Univer-
sity secretary, agrees there are better
ways than using bylaw 2.01 to han-
dle student misconduct.
"There are all kinds of ways we
should be able to deal with one an-
other without having the president
involved," he said.
Because the University doesn't
have a set of procedures outlining
those ways, the president is the only
one who can now do anything, he
said. "If the process is absent we've
got to have something."
But the University could have
taken the case through the court sys-
tem, said Michigan Student Assem-
bly Aaron Williams. Instead, Duder-
stadt used the case to "test the wa-
ters" and see how upset students
would be over the use of bylaw 2.01
to discipline a student for non-aca-
demic conduct, he said.
"The case opens the door to other
problems," said Michael Schechter,
and LSA senior and president of the
campus American Civil Liberties
Union. "This case involves really a
crime. Opponents of the code are
worried about the University control-
ling political debates," he said.
"The case sets a precedent which
could be expanded on and serve other
purposes (beyond disciplining for a
crime)," he said.
Copeland was accused of two
counts of malicious destruction to
the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority
house on Feb. 14. He pleaded "no
contest" to the charges.

Automakers argue clean fuels
proposal may harm industry
WASHINGTON - A proposal to require the manufacture of cars that
burn clean fuels is the last major obstacle to Senate approval of a clean-air
bill the industry can accept, spokesperson said yesterday.
Automakers voiced arguments similar to those that prevailed last
week, when the Senate rejected emission controls tougher than those in
the compromise bill negotiated by the Bush administration and Senate
The amendment could be financially devastating to automakers and
dealers, forcing them to sell cars that consumers might not want, said
Tom Greene, executive director for legislative affairs of the National
Automobile Dealers Association.
Under the amendment, automakers would have to manufacture and sell
millions of clean-burning cars. Also, reformulated gasoline would have to
be sold in cities not meeting federal air quality standards.
Child labor abuses uncovered
WASHINGTON - A surprise nationwide sweep of fast-food restau-
rants and other businesses found 7,000 teenagers employed for too many
hours or in dangerous jobs in violation of child-labor laws, Labor Secre-
tary Elizabeth Dole said yesterday.
The three day investigation, called "Operation Child Watch," is ex-
pected to result in more than $1.8 million in civil fines against busi
nesses, Dole said. Fines totaling $2.7 million were assessed during all of
The majority of the allegations involved firms in which 14- and 15-
year-olds worked more hours or later at night during the school week than
allowed under federal law, said William Brooks, an assistant labor secre-
But there were also more than 900 youngsters, mostly 16- and 17-year-
olds, who were performing dangerous tasks or using hazardous equipment
such as power-driven meat-slicing machinery, dough mixers and paper-
Proposed bill to make family
planning a basic health service
LANSING - Unwanted pregnancies and infant mortality would be re-
duced if family planning was made a basic service provided by the state,
officials said yesterday in proposing legislation.
Lawmakers sponsoring the bill emphasized that family planning ser-
vices wouldn't include abortion counseling, abortions, prenatal care or
other pregnancy-related health services.
The Department of Public Health would be required to offer services to
help women have the number of children they want within the desired
time period. Those services could include fertility enhancement techniques.
or contraceptives devices.
The state is providing family planning services to about 60 percent of
the 467,000 poor women and sexually active teen-agers who are at risk for
unintended pregnancies, said Sen. Lana Pollack (D-Ann Arbor) and spon-
sor of the bill.
Mild winter may cause drought
WASHINGTON - This year's mild winter could come back to haunt
Americans in the form of a drought, the National Weather Service said
The March hydrological outlook, usually an annual report on potential
for spring flooding from snowmelt, this year is more a chronicle of miss-
ing snow and dry soil conditions.
Unless heavy precipitation occurs, the return of drought to major areas
of the nation is imminent, the report said.
Drought plagued much of the nation in the hot summer of 1988, eas-
ing somewhat last year. Pickers of dryness have persisted, however.
Serious water-supply problems are a distinct possibility for much of
California as well as in the Great Basin, lower Colorado, parts of the Rio
Grande and in western and southern Texas, the weather service reported.
Irish county to boycott St.
Patrick's Day festivities
LAFAYETTE COUNTY, Fla. - March 17 is just another day in
Lafayette County, Florida, the nation's most Irish county.
The county seat is named Mayo, but there will be no St. Patrick's Day
parade, and no green beer at the Hideaway Tavern.
No shamrocks, not even a leprechaun. Faith n' begorra, y'all!
Residents, in fact, were surprised to learn that in the last U.S. census,
17.7 percent of Lafayette's 4,035 residents declared Irish ancestry, the
highest percentage of any county in the United States.
Apparently, Lafayette's Irish descend not from Roman Catholics who
left Ireland after the 19thcentury famine, but from Protestants who mi-
grated years earlier.
These immigrants traced their own roots back to Scotland, which their
ancestors left in the 1600s to colonize northeastern Ireland, and many
moved on to America.
