SACUA chair says
pleas for revisions to
Code draft went
unheeded in Friday's
vote to adopt
document
Stephanie Jo Klein
aily Staff Reporter
Two members of the top faculty gov-
rnance committee said yesterday they
are severely disappointed that the Board
of Regents decided to approve the new
Code of Student Conduct.
George Brewer, who chairs the Sen-
ate Advisory Committee on University
Affairs, called the proposal a "well-
rehearsed presentation by (Vice Presi-
dent for Student Affairs) Maureen Hart-
ford and the students (on the Code
workgroup)."
The regents, Brewer said, wanted to
see a code draft that students had worked
on, though he said the approved draft
did not have adequate student input.
"I think the regents came determined
to do it," Brewer said. "The administra-
tion wanted this Code and used the
opportunity to get it."
Brewer said the regents ignored both
the Michigan Student Assembly and
SACUA requests that more time be
granted to revise the new drafts.
"My view is that MSA and faculty
governance felt the code needed to be
improved," Brewer said. He called MSA
President Flint Wainess ambivalent,
saying that Wainess tried to voice stu-
dent objections to the code while say-
ing he approved of most of it.
English Prof. and SACUA member
Leo McNamara also said the decision
did not incorporate enough real student
input.
"It's clear that the broad range of
students are not happy with (the Code),"
he said.
McNamara said the students on the
workgroup could not accurately repre-
sent the overall student opinion, be-
cause groups of that type tend to be-
come "agents of the administration."
The eight students on the workgroup
were selected and paid by the Office of
Student Affairs.
Presentations by other students and
the Washtenaw County branch of the
American Civil Liberties Union did not
present favorable views of the code,
McNamara said.
"I thought the tenor of the afternoon
was to cast considerable doubt on the
document," he said.
Several regents were contacted for
comment but did not return phone calls.

House clears
way for new
budget talks

The Washington Post
WASHINGTON - After a tumultu-
ous and bitterly partisan week of bud-
get brinksmanship, the House set the
stage for another round of high-stakes
talks between Congress and President
Clinton by giving final congressional
approval to key budget legislation yes-
terday evening before going home for a
week-long Thanksgiving recess.
The House voted 421-4 to approve a
short-term spending bill to keep the
government at full force for 25 days
while Congress continues work on the
remaining fiscal 1996 spending bills
and begins talks with Clinton to wipe
out the federal budget deficit by 2002.
"This is the beginning of the negotia-
tion," House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-
Ga.) said on CNN. "We're not done yet.
... We still have several very tough weeks
of negotiation before we're finished."
The House action came at the end of
the first work day since last yesterday
for some 700,000 federal workers after
Congress and Clinton ended the longest
period the government has gone with-
out funding. The Smithsonian Institu-
tion and the Grand Canyon reopened,
the State Department resumed process-
ing passport applications and the Com-
merce Department began tracking the
economy again.
The interim spending bill, which
Clinton has promised to sign into law,
includes a provision paying furloughed
government workers for the last week.
It also requires agencies to spend at a
lower rate than they have been doing.
Clinton visited Capitol Hill last night
to thank Democrats for sticking with
him. The meeting was described by
those attending as a pep rally, pulling
Democrats togetheras they go home for
Thanksgiving.
"We leave, I think, in the kind of
shape that will make it possible for us to
come back in a week and begin the hard
negotiations of completing the kind of
budget we think can broadly be ac-
cepted in this country," said Rep. Vic
Fazio (D-Calif.), House Democratic
Caucus chairman.
Two Democrats, Major R. Owens (of
New York) and Pat Williams (of Mon-
tana), did not support Clinton yester-
day, voting against the interim spend-
ing bill. Republicans Wes Cooley (of
Oregon) and freshman Steven E. Stock-
man (of Texas) voted against the mea-
sure; Rep. Mark E. Souder (R-Ind.), a
freshman, voted "present."
Last night, the House also voted 235-
192 to send the GOP's massive blue-
print for eliminating the federal budget
deficit by 2002 to Clinton - and a
promised veto. The House had approved
the reconciliation legislation Friday; a
second vote was necessary because of
minor Senate changes. The far-reach-

Public behind
Clinton in
budgret battle
The Washington Post
WASHINGTON - President
Clinton has a majority of Americans
on his side as federal budget negotia-
tions enter a critical new phase, while
his Republican opponents in Con-
gress face growing disapproval over
the way they have handled the bud-
get impasse, according to a new
Washington Post-ABC News poll.
The survey, conducted Sunday be-
fore the agreement to end the partial
government shutdown was an-
nounced, found that seven in 10 dis-
approved of the way Republicans in
Congress are handling the budget
dispute - including a majority of
Republicans.
Overall, 56 percent interviewed
said Clinton's position on the bud-
get issue was closer to their own,
while 36 percent supported the Re-
publicans. By a 2-1 ratio, those in-
terviewed agreed that the Republi-
can plan to balance the federal bud-
get in seven years cut too deeply into
domestic programs and a smaller
majority said Clinton should veto it.
A total of 827 randomly selected
adults were interviewed. Margin of
sampling error for the overall re-
sults is plus or minus four percent-
age points.
Surveysand interviewssuggest that
most Americans blamed Republicans
in Congress for the budget impasse.
Even a majority of Republicans in-
terviewed expressed disapproval of
the way their party's congressional
leaders had dealt so far with the dis-
pute, including six out of 10 GOP
moderates and half of all self-de-
scribed conservative Republicans.
So far, few Americans see any-
thing positive coming from the bud-
get crisis. Nearly seven in 10 said
the partial government shutdown
was a bad thing, while one in four
saw it as positive. But nearly nine in
10 reported that they had not been
inconvenienced by the shutdown.

families, overhaul Medicare and give
the states responsiblity for Medicaid
and welfare.
But even as GOP lawmakers looked
toward talks on those issues with
Clinton, set to begin next week, they

The black, military-style vehicle
adorned with a white Nike swoosh logo
has become a familiar site at some of
the nation's largest college football sta-
diums.
Shoe and athletic wear companies
long-ago realized the value of connect-
ing their products to premier athletes
and teams. Professional teams and play-
ers have picked up big money from
endorsement deals.,
Now many others of the nation's col-
lege athletic powerhouses have entered
the marketplace and found it just as prof-

"Today it takes a lot of money to
maintain a lifestyle on a college cam-
pus," said Hansen, whose league has
had to cope this fall with investigations
of NCAA rules violations by UCLA
and USC football players.
Because of the NCAA's amateurism
rules, college athletes can receive only
tuition, room, board and books from a
university. In addition, scholarship ath-
letes cannot hold paying jobs during
school.
In a recent interview with The Michi-
gan Daily, Athletic Director Joe
Roberson defended the University's con-
tract and said a number of things people
point to in attacking it are not true.
"The student-athletes benefit from
our contract with Nike. No one gets a
penny," Roberson said. "We get a couple
