Committees To Review


Experiments on

Any University researcher plan-
ning to use human subjects must
have his program reviewed by a
committee of his associates before
he can apply for funds or begin
his experiment, according to a
University regulation which goes
into effect today.
The new regulation was formu-
lated last October by the Academic
Affairs Advisory Council to pro-
vide procedure for safeguarding
the rights and welfare of persons
' involved as subjects in research
and investigation.
The regulation was developed
after Dr. William H. Stewart, the
Surgeon General of the Public
Health Service, stated in February,
1966, "No new, renewal, or con-
tinuation of research or research

WASHINGTON (P)-David Miller, 24, who said he expects to
be put in prison soon for burning his draft card, was carried,
bodily from national Selective Service headquarters yesterday
when he refused to leave after the close of business:
He said he wanted to continue a protest against the draft
by staying in the building until Monday morning.
PROVOST OF LONG ISLAND University's Brooklyn Center,
Dr. William M. Birenbaum, was formally removed from his post
Monday. Birenbaum differed with Dr. R. Gordon Hoxie, chancel-
lor of the university, on the autonomy individual campuses of
LIU should have. Birenbaum charged that the university's central
administration tended "to equate local dissent with disloyalty."
Originally Birenbaum had intended to resign in June, but at
the request of students and faculty, he asked last week that his
resignation be cancelled. This request was rejected.
AN ADVISORY COMMITTEE, to study organization of the
Department of Physical Education and Athletics and to recom-

VERA BAITS HOUSING last night held what was probably
the first University authorized beer party in the history of the
4 dormitory system. Staff members strictly supervised attendance,
which was limited to Baits housing residents and dates who were
over 21. The keg of beer was paid for out of house funds and dues.

n- eral's statement. He added that
al the new procedures definitely were
not causing faculty resignations or
ll curtailment of research.
e- While in the past experiments
be have come before review boards,
no restraints were made on ap-
ait plying for funds or beginning the
experiments before the review.
~= About five projects have already
been reviewed by the literary
school committee, according to a
member of the psychology de-
par tment.
More Paperwork
"The new procedure doesn r cur-
tail research, but it does present
some more paperwork," ne said.
"However, the literary school
has developed a form which ful-
fills the PublicHealth Service de-
mands and only takes half an
-= hour to complete."
"The effect of the reviewing is
not to hamstring research, but to
discuss the critical issues. If the
board feels an experiment plan is
unacceptable, it will meet with
the prospective experimenter," he
Subject Pool
"The. psychology department
has been aware of the need for
this type of consideration for
years. As a result it has a subject
pool program, and those experi-
mentors who use the pool submit
their plans for similar screening."
