a former University researcher who
blew the whistle on scientific miscon-
duct is still waiting for her money.
Carolyn Phinney is the former as-
sistant research scientist in the
University's Institute of Gerontology

-a law designed to shield those who
report suspicions of misconduct.
Her attorney, Philip Green, said the

0 University moves toward final draft of drug and alcohol policy
BY HOPE CALATI
DAILY EDITOR IN CHIEF
The future of the alcohol and other
drug policy is taking vague shape. The
University's Alcohol and Other Drug
Committee released a second draft of
the policy this week.
This draft keeps close to the State-
ment of Student Rights and Responsi-
bilities in defining policy violations.
These consist of illegal consumption
of alcohol and other drugs - such as
underage drinking - on campus as
well as University sponsored events
These violations are the same as
those stated in the statement, the non-
academic code of studentconduct, and
nisms in that document.
"We want this to be an enforceable
policy,"draftauthor Susan Finley said.
"I think there is an assumption that the
campus law enforcement would kick
Inthe second draft, punishment will
be netted out through the Statement of
Student Rights and Responsibilities.
Sanctions would range from a formal
reprimand to community service to
"The policy is much more in tune
with prevention than sanctions,"Finley
The committee has begun to dis-
cuss the treatment of alcohol and drug
use by members of student organiza-
Polk Wagner, president of the In-
alcohol use into the draft.
The second draft states: alcohol
shall not be purchased with an
organization's funds, no organization
events shall have mass quantities of
alcohol, and only "Bring Your Own"
alcohol is allowed.'The entire organi-
zation would be punished for viola-
tions in this draft.
"We're the only group that ad-
dresses alcohol on campus," Wagner
The Greek system currently gov-
erns itself by a similar policy.
However, student rights may be
abridged if entire groups were pun-
ished for the acts of a few members,
said Michigan Student Assembly Vice
President Brian Kight.
