Daily News Analysis
The issue of classified military
research at the University ap-
pears headed for a showdown
next Wednesday in the Adminis-
tration Bldg. Voice has scheduled
a sit-in there in an effort to get
the University to withdraw from
a $1 million classified counter-
insurgency contract in Thailand.
Echoing this demand is Stu-
dent Government Council, which
passed a resolution last Thursday
calling for cancellation of the
Thailand project. SGC President
Bruce Kahn, '68, and Graduate
Assembly President Roy Ashmall,
Grad., have indicated they per-
sonally back the sit-ins.
The controversy appears to cut
across all University lines as a
broad cross-section of faculty
leaders and adminstrators joined
students last Friday at a teach-
in on the issue.
Perhaps Vice President for Re-
search A. Geoffrey Norman best
articulated the situation at the
teach-in when he told the aud-
ience, "I'm convinced that it is
research enterprise that makes
this school what it is more than
anything else."
Norman summarized -current
University policy, "If faculty want
to accept classified research re-
strictions, we leave it up to them."
Academic Freedom
Among issues raised at the teach-
in were potential curbs on aca-
demic freedom and government
control surrounding classified re-

"You can't prejudge a problem
you know nothing about," he ex-
plained. "I have constraints in my
mind: when research contributes:
to the needs of society; the profes-I
sional level of the faculty: and!
to the needs of state, nation andI
industry, then we accept the con-
"We do not discourage research
just because it relates to the na-
tion's defense."
Security, Information
The question of security clear-
ances and difficulty of finding out
what goes on in classified pro-
jects were raised by panelists and
audience alike as objections to
secret research.
Norman denied that security is
tight at WRL: "Many of the pre-
cautions are merely taken to mini-
mize fire hazards."
Daily Editor Roger Rapoport,'
'68, one of the panelists speaking
against continuing present policy,I
pointed out that the University re-I
leases an abbreviated project list
which does not provide full titles
of sub-contracts.
He asked why a University
"Quarterly Compilation" listing,
such breakdowns is not made pub-:
lic, as is a similar list at the Uni-
versity of Wisconsin. Norman re-
plied, "No one ever asked us for
"Those who are defending classi-
fied research claim it is a really
good thing. Then why can't they
give us the names of all the pro-
jects," said Rapoport. "Anybody
can always get any information he
wants," Norman countered.
When Norman said that "just
a simple police check" is involved
in security clearance, one student
yelled "that takes three months?"
Vietnam, Thailand
One questioner asked Van Wylen
if the University would engage in'
a project that could potentially'
involve the country in a situation
like the Vietnam war.
"If we were ever asked to do
research we thought would get
the government in trouble, we
wouldn't do it," he replied.1
The following exchange ensued
between Norman and Eric Ches-1
ter, a panelist, of Voice.
Chester: "Who asked us to go
to Thailand-did the Defense De-
partment ask other universities to
do this, or did they just come to

Special To The Daily
DETROIT-Americans for Dem-
ocratic Action Chairman John
Kenneth Galbraith last night
backed away from joining a
"dump Johnson" movement, but
called for the formation of "pow-
erful peace caucuses" at both the

"Come next summer I hope ve

these beliefs," the Harvard econo-
-mist and former ambassador to
India said at Detroit's Rackham
Memorial Bldg.
Echo Sentiments
l Galbraith had been expected to
echo the sentiments expressed by
Democratic State Chairman Zol-
ton Ferency who earlier this
month suggested that Johnson's
renomination might hurt the
Democratic ticket. However, Gal-
braith made no mention of run-

of rolling back the Viet Cong and

The Gophers took advantage of
their gift as Wilson quickly car-

with the Wolverines on top, 15-6.
In the process they had totaled
more points than the Gophers' last
