meeting by Prof. Martin Gold, of
the department of psychology, ur-

of its committee on research po-
licy and to implement that re-
port by establishing the review
committee specified in the four
policy statements as its guide-

resolution. The Gold resolution
was then passed, 85-61. Both votes
represent about 15 per cent of
the LSA faculty.
The four policy statements would

"a significant contribution to the
~advancement of knowledge" or
"enhance the capability of the
researcher or his unit."
Angell's resolution had urged a
policy "prohibiting the acceptance
of contracts which specify that'
results be kept secret." It also urg-
ed that the Regents disengage the
University from contracts incon-

Commenting on the faculty's
action, literary college Dean Wil-
liam Haber said. "This is an is-
sue of crucial significance in the
educational mission of the Uni-
versity. It is clear after today's full
and vigorous debate that the fa-
culty is strongly divided on this
topic. While the motion to request
the Regents to establish a policy
prohibiting acceptance of con-'
tracts by the University which
specified the results be secret was
defeated, the vote was not over-
wbelmingly one-sided."
"It seems to me," he continued,
"that a majority of the faculty
felt that the senate committee on
research policy, in proposing to
set up review procedures, was moreI
likely to overcome the most ob-
jectionable features of classified
research than the proposal thatj
sought its total elimination."

To successfully plan the growth pat-

as the availability of adequate space,

And at the same time, they must
realize that the state legislature prob-

for growth.
The Office of Academic Affairs con-

But now, "It has become obvious LSA
simply cannot grow," Smith said. In
fact, Smith and the literary college fac-

And the school of Architecture and
Design, similarly hit by lack of funds
and space, has put a freeze on enroll-

Although last fall's enrollment of
