demic Affairs committee, which
prepared the ROTC report. "I
don't know what the action means
legally, but I suppose they want
to show that they support their
representatives."
The chairman and vice chair-
man of Senate Assembly could
not be reached for comment yes-
terday.
The other major college affected
by the ROTC report-the literary!
college-will not follow in the en-
gineering college's footsteps, Dean
William Hays said last night.
He said the college will await
action by the administration and
the Regents before acting on the
role of ROTC in the school. "We
want to be consistent with what-
ever the University's decision is,"
he said.
It appears that engineering fac-
ulty members would like to see!
ROTC kept on campus, but feel
that the changes would strengthen!
the academic worth of the pro-
gram.
"There are no reservations about
making these changes, but the'

majority of the faculty would like:
to keep ROTC," Van Wylen said.-1
Prof. John Clark agreed with
Van Wylen's appraisal. "The res-
olution implies general support of
the principle of ROTC," he said.
Prof. Maurice Sinnot, who was
on the committee which prepared
the Assembly report, felt that the
initial requests for action came{
from those who felt that the re-t
port was too negative.
"A lot of faculty members1
thought that the report didn't go,
far enough in supporting ROTC-
they feel that the kids want'
ROTC, and that its good for:
them." This feeling, Sinnot went1
on, resulted in two proposals forl
amendments.
Though Grimes agreed that "in
the long run it would strengthen'
ROTC by putting it in a more'
healthy position," he was worried
about the negative connotations of
the report.
"It uses a more negative ap-
proach than I would like to see,"
he said.
The Regents will be having an
open meeting on Dec. 18 from
10:45-12:45 to discuss the report.

At the present time, about six
faculty members and 17 doctoral
students work in optics labs and
are closely associated with the de-
partment of electrical engineer-
ing.
Since the Engineering College
already administers over $10 mil-
lion in mostly unclassified, non-
defense research by faculty mem-
bers, Van Wylen expects the col-
lege could handle 'the administra-
tive burden of Willow Run's con-
tracts.
But he feels "it would be the
best thing for those projects which
don't have relevance to academicI
programs to join a private cor-
poration."
Both Van Wylen and Vice Presi-
dent Norman expect the possibility
of joining Willow Run with Bat-
telle Memorial Institute of Colum-
bus, Ohio would be a "very at-
tractive" alternative to the Wil-
low Run staff.
Battelle is a private, nonprofit
corporation well-endowed w i t h ,
capital garnered from profitable
patents, notably the Xerox pro-
cess. With branches in Europe and
other states, the corporation has
several thousand employes.
Because the University cannot
sell the labs and airport, it would

have to lease the buildings and the
equipment to a private firm. The
complex legal complexities and
significant implications of the
transfer make the decision a high-
level one involving all the execu-
tive officers of the University and
ultimately the Regents.
However, Norman expects a ver-
dict on the fate of Willow R u n

next fiscal year.
