A possible attempt at breaking and
entering Thursday night at the Madelon
-Pound House on Hill Street was re-
ported to the University's Department
of Public Safety. An officer discovered
,a broken window and minor damage to
;the garage door.

sidered vandalism because there was
no sign that the suspect or suspects

his trespassing and was escorted from
the building, DPS reports showed.

New Code draft restricts
power of administrators
By Josh White
Daily Staff Reporter
The proposed Code of Student Con-
duct has another incarnation this week,
and Michigan Student Assembly Presi-
dent Flint Wainess said the changes
incorporated in the document's fourth
draft are significant.
Two of the major changes to the
newest draft, dated Nov. 3, are modifi-
cations to article N of the violation
section and a restriction of the powers
given to the dean of students and the
vice president for student affairs. The
new draft also includes a minor alter-
ation to the introduction of the sanc-
Wainess said the new version of ar-
ticle N is clearer and more specific. In
previous drafts, "violating other Uni-
versity policies which specifically ad-
dress the behaviors of students" was a
violation of the Code. The old drafts
went on to list eight such policies that
would fall under the violation's scope.
The new violation prohibits "violat-
ing University computer policies," in-
cluding "University Housing's Com-
munity Standards and Guidelines,"
"lTD's Condition of Use Statement"
and "Computer Aided Engineering
Network's Conditions of Use Policy."
"The way N was originally written,
the violation incorporated any Univer-
sity policy established at any time by
anybody in the University community,"
Wainess said yesterday. "It was not an
exhaustive list and they left room for
some funny business. Now, students
would specifically know their respon-
sibilities and would specifically know
which policies the Code has jurisdic-
Another modification Wainess
pointed to was the power given to the
dean of students and the vice president
for student affairs. The last draft al-
lowed the two administrators to "modify
a sanction to include suspension or ex-
pulsion in extraordinary circum-
stances." The new draft states that they
"may not modify a sanction to include
suspension or expulsion," which
Wainess said was an important change.
"While it is fairly self-explanatory, it
limits the power of those two posi-
tions," Wainess said. "While it still
allows the administration to modify a
sanction, it does not give them the power
to suspend or expel students."
University presidents are able to sus-
pend or expel a student under extraordi-
nary circumstances under Regents'
The change to the sanctions section
of the draft removes a clause that read,
"possible sanctions include, but are not
limited to the following (12 sanctions)."
The sentence now reads,"Possible sanc-
tions are:" before listing the Code's 12
Wainess said there may be a fifth
draft released within the next few days
and anticipates that a final draft will be
ready by next Tuesday's MSA meet-
ing. The University Board of Regents is
expected to consider a final draft of the
Code at its regular meeting next week.

The economy is great, today's college .
graduates are going to have a higher stan-
dard of living than their parents and the
average salary in 20 years is going to be
almost $100,000-- at least in the minds
of this year's college graduates.
But some University students are not
as sure of future prosperity.
A recently published Gallup poll,
using a random sample of nearly 2,000
seniors at 134 colleges and universities
nationwide, found that:
* Nearly two-thirds of the seniors
anticipate that in 20 years, their stan-
dard of living will be higher than that of
their parents at the same age.
The average salary in 20 years will
57 percent of the seniors plan to
work in the business world.
Almost one in five plan to attend
graduate business school, making it the
first choice for post-graduate education.
LSA senior Nabil Sabki says these
results signify too much optimism.
"In light of all the things plaguing the
economy, it's a little hard to believe
that so many people are going to be
doing this well," he said. "After all, less
than 5 percent ofAmericans today make
that kind of money."
"It seems that these feelings do not
fall in line with today's conceptions,"
said Alan Simpson, an account execu-
tive with Westerbeck Communications.
Westerbeck is the media consultant for
the Graduate Management Admission
Council, which sponsored the survey.

Students under 21 face harsher pen-
alties if they are found purchasing, pos-
sessing or consuming alcohol, under a
state law that went into effect in early
Department of Public Safety Lt. Jo-
seph Piersante said initial statistics have
shown a decrease in certain automobile
accidents since then.
"Fatal traffic accidents involving
drinking and driving for people under
21 has declined," he said. "But you
won't know the general trend until it
has been in effect for a year."
The law, which expands punishments
for alcohol use by minors, was spon-
sored by former state Sen. Gil DiNello.
"The main reason for the legislation
is to cut down on the high amount of
injuries and fatal accidents that involve
underage drinking," Piersante said.
The law changes the minor in posses-
sion penalty from a civil infraction to a
misdemeanor offense, a criminal charge
resulting in a criminal record. The maxi-
mum penalty for a civil infraction is a
fine imposed by the court.
The penalty for a first minor in pos-
session offense starts at a $100 fine, as
well as community service and sub-
stance-abuse screening. A third offense
is punishable by up to $500.
Second and third offenses also carry
a driver license suspension, even if the
minor was not driving a vehicle when
State Sen. William VanRegenmorter
(R-Hudsonville), chair of the Senate
Judiciary Committee, said he voted
against the bill.
"It does increase some penalties, but
it has some very fatal flaws," he said,
including putting the burden on the
minor and removing responsibility from
In order to prosecute the seller of
alcohol, the minor must first be charged.
"It is unprecedented in law,"
Another provision of the law says
that if a person provides alcohol to a
minor resulting in the death of the mi-
nor, the individual can face felony
charges punishable by up to 10 years in
prison and/or a $5,000 fine.
But, the law has specifics based on
whether the provider is a commercial or
private seller. If the minor is killed as a
result of a commercial seller, it is con-
sidered a misdemeanor; a private seller
faces felony charges.
"This is unequal protection of the
law," VanRegenmorter said.
The new law also allows a law-en-
forcement official to request that mi-
nors take a preliminary breath test if
they are suspected of consuming alco-
If the test indicates a blood alcohol
content of .02 percent or higher, the
minor can be cited for minor in posses-
sion and/or consumption of alcohol-
meaning that if a person has alcohol ;in
their body, they can be charged with
possession even when they are not car-
Also included in the statute are penal-
ties foraperson21years old or olderwho
provides alcohol for a minor. The first
offense includes a maximum of 60 days
in jail and a mandatory $1,000 fine.,A
second offense results in 90 days in jail
and a mandatory $2,500 fine.
DPS spokeswoman Elizabeth Hall
said officers will enforce the new alco-
hol law fairly and impartially.
"DPS officers will enforce the policy,
but we will keep in mind this is a Uni-
versity community," she said.
The legislation also requires police
to notify parents or guardians of minors

current "Generation X"stereotypes, the
survey didn't surprise Career Planning
and Placement librarian Jeanne Miller.
Miller noted a conflict between the
traditional American ideal of one genera-
tion being more successful than the previ-
ous one and today's prevalent cynicism.
Miller said she has seen and read both
sides of the debate. "The cultural norm
comes up against cynicism," Miller said.
In line with the Gallup poll results is
a CP&P survey that reported Univer-
sity graduates are finding a large mea-
sure of success. "Of those who were in
our office in 1992-1993, 89 percent
said they found employment within
six months of graduation," Millersaid.
She said 87 percent of those employed
described their employment as "hav-
ing career potential."
While the survey indicates that graduate
business school is the most popular choice
of post-secondary education among se-
niors, it may not be the most profitable.
"What an MBA may add to your career is
all over the map," Miller said.
Business School senior Sean
McLaughlin said he believes any form
of business degree is extremely valu-
able. "At least as far as the Business
School here goes, anyone who wants a
job will find a job," he said.
The methodology ofthe survey seems
sound, Simpson said. "Gallup is the
polling industry beyond compare. They
did everything to ensure a random and
One flaw Simpson found was that study
failed to stfess whether inflation was
accounted for in the future income.
