the regents as a "partial victory."
"This is a partial victory but the
code is seriously flawed and it should
not have been implemented," Kight
Kight urged against making the
code a permanent policy at the public
comments part of the regents' meeting
two weeks ago.
"Making it a permanent policy
sends the message that it is 100 percent
OK and it should be left as is," he said.
In an effort to ward off criticism
that the code, once made a permanent
policy, would become intractable,
PresidentJames Duderstadt said, "that
making the non-academic code of
conduct a permanent policy "doesn't
set the policy in stone.... Whether the
policy is an interim or a permanent
one, it will evolve."
But Kight said the University
should dump the entire policy.
"Even with amendments, the
University should not have this policy.
We are opposed to codes of non-
academic conduct because they
inherently violate student rights,"
Vice President for Student Affairs
Maureen A. Hartford, an adamant ad-
vocate for the code, said, "We all
agree that this is not the language we
want but it is workable."
The code will continue as an
interim policy until it will be re-
evaluated again in April 1995.
Two attempts to approve
amendments failed when the
University administration failed to
convene a quorum of the student
Regent Rebecca McGowan (D-
Ann Arbor) said Friday's meeting
should end students efforts to change
the code. "It is not yet finished. The
opportunity to amend it has not yet
Opponents to the code have cited
that it fundamentally violates students
rights and does not provide adequate
due process. In addition, code
opponents say the University fails to
report enough information in order
for students to monitor the process.
Regent Shirley McFee (R-Battle
Creek) praised MSA members for
voicing their opposition to the code
and said, "This deals primarily with
students and they should be given the
opportunity to propose amendments."
And now it is up to University
students to once again pester the
administration to get a quorum of the
pool of jurors to show up. Whether
they do, is anyone's guess.

opposition are to raise funds and
heighten awareness about the amend-
"When we explain to people that
we aren't looking for special rights,
and tell them that in Michigan you
can be fired, denied housing or public
accommodations because of your
sexual orientation, they change their
minds about the proposed amend-
ment," she said.
MCHD is a coalition of state and
national organizations concerned over
the ballot initiative. Shapanka said
that about 60 percent of the organiza-
tions involved are gay-identified, but
predicts that percentage will decrease
as more people become involved.

First Centrum proceed with the $4.6
million from the city at half the going
rate. First Centrum Treasurer Nicholas
Faber said the company decided to
abandon its request in order to meet a
state deadline for tax credits.
To receive low-income housing
tax credits, First Centrum had to sign
an agreement with the city by March
Over Nicolas' objections, the
council agreed to leave open the
possibility of future subsidies for the
project. Before receiving any
subsidies, First Centrum must set aside
additional housing units for its lowest-
The compromise was hailed by
most council members as an
improvement over an earlier plan to
hand out the parking subsidy without
conditions. But Nicolas, noting the
city's current woes over a five-year-
old loan guarantee to the YMCA for
Women's organizations, minority
coalitions, and different religious
groups are among the thirty-six orgay-
nizations that make up MCHD. "Ba-
sically anyone who has been attacked
by the extreme right," Shapanka said.
Kathy Hines, member of the Ann
Arbor branch of MCHD, said she
became involved with fighting the
ballot initiative because of its rel-
evance to her life.
"It's very frightening to me that
we could lose our rights - we don't*
have that many rights to begin with,"
Hines added that the amendment
would not just affect lesbians, gays
and bisexuals. "If they can take away
the rights of one group of people, they
can take away anyone's rights."
Makousek could not be reached.
"There's a good chance that ifyou
leave the language in, then a future
council could consider a subsidy," he
said. "I'm just feeling uncomfortable
that a future council would have to
bail out the Ann Arbor Inn."
Councilmember Tobi Hanna-
Davies (D-1st Ward) said limited
subsidies are justified for "this very
special project." She lauded the
guarantee between the city and First*
Centrum reserving the inn for low-
income tenants for 30 years.
Ann Arbor will act as the go-
between in the planned transfer of the
inn from the Michigan Department of
Natural Resources to First Centrum
in June. The city will buy the 11-story
structure at the corner of Huron and
Washington streets that the state
repossessed after the inn's former
owners declared bankruptcy.
Construction on the project is
expected to begin shortly after the
transfer. According to schedule, the
inn should be ready for occupancy in
late 1994 or early 1995.

the Michigan Party did not release a
copy to the assembly.
"It proves my point even further
that this was a political move of the
Michigan Party," Bodoh said.
The Michigan Party's candidate
for vice president, LSA Rep. Jacob
Stern, defended the party.
"We just feel that this is our
constitution," Stern said. "Idon't think
we kept anyone in the dark."
Despite its timing, Kight denied
the Michigan Party's proposal for a
new constitution was simply a
"I've been on MSA for three-and-
a-half years and I've been trying to do
what I could to make changes to make
MSA more effective," IFight said.
The proposal may change the focus
of the debate from the assembly's
support of the Michigan Collegiate
Coalition (MCC) and the Ann Arbor
The Students' Party has announced
its continued support for MCC and
the AATU, while the Michigan Party
has been critical of both.
"I think (the Michigan Party is)
trying to cloud the debate to take
away from MCC and AATU," Bodoh
said. "We'll try to keep the focus on
the true issues, not the ones that are
made up by the Michigan Party."
Stern said the AATU and MCC
will be issues in the campaign as the
Northwestern is an equal opportunity educator and employer.
