"The University could appro-
priately consider separating the
Willow Run Laboratories 1WRL)
from the University," commented
Dean Gordon Van Wylen of the
Engineering College last night in
response to a.question at a teach-
in on classified research. "The
engineering school has from time
to time considered this question
and I think it is very possible the
University should move in this
direction," he explained.
"This should not be one of the
goals of the University," Vice
President for. Research A. Geof-
frey Norman contended, however,
"I look forward to the day when
it could even be combined with ex-
isting facilities on North Campus."
Willow Run Laboratories, lo-
cated at Ypsilanti, is a unit of the
University conducting some $11.8
million in research this year.
About $9 million of this is classi-
fied, including a $1 million coun-

year and is scheduled to run into
