campus. Procedures would have to be developed to comply,
with the policy, and individuals would have to be notified
before information from their file is re-released, Nordby
Nordby said she was unaware of similar guidelines at
other universities. "We like to think we're out in front,".she
said. Sam Plice, a political science professor also on the
committee, however, recalled that both the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology (MIT) and Stauford have had
similar policies for several years.
When developing the guidelines, the six-membercommit-
tee had to strike a balance between what it perceived to be
the public's right to know and the individual's right to
privacy. This. same dilemma characterized the long-
standing campus controversy over disclosure of name-
linked salary information.
EARLIER THIS month, the state legislature passed a
measure which will force the University to release faculty
salaries by name. Since the University is legally bound to

ents' rights
disclose these figures, the privacy guidelines; would no
longer apply to salary information. Nordby explained that
the proposed bylaw contains a "catch-all" phrase ex-
cluding all information whichis legally considered part of
the public domain from consideration under the privacy
Disclosure of salaries, however, seemed to be the main
issue in the privacy controversy, according to many
professors. "I really can't think of any other issue besides
salaries," said George Johnson, a professor at the Institute
for Public Policy Studies.
Johnson conceded that letters of recommendation and
results of health exams should not be released randomly,
but termed the majority of information in professors' files
"enormously petty.'
"I don't want anyone spying on me. I don't want anyone
seeing X-rays of my pancreas. After all, it's my pancreas,"
Johnson joked.

Wall St
NEW YORK (AP)-To the beat of a
brass band, more than 1,000 anti-
nuclear demonstrators tried in vain
yesterday to close the New York Stock
Exchange on the 50th anniversary of
the stock market crash.
Police reported 959 arrests in what
was the largest of several anti-nuclear
demonstrations across the nation.
IN WASHINGTON,. D.C., about 250
protesters blocked doorways to the
Energy Department and rallied on In-
dependence Avenue, and 88 persons
were taken into custody during a
protest at the Trident Nuclear sub-
marine base in Bangor, Wash.
In New York scores of demonstrators
jammed the exchange on Wall and
Broad streets, saying their targets
were companies that finance'-the
nuclear industry. Clowns on stilts
mingled with the peaceful protesters.
"Don't go to work today and take a
holiday from death," one demonstrator
urged the Stock Exchange employees.
Wall and Broad streets were closed, but
traffic was backed up for nine blocks on
nearby Broadway.
AMONG THE FIRST. to be arrested
was Daniel Ellsberg, a key figure in the
vietnam-era Pentagon Papers case. He-
went quietly.
The exchange brought many of its
employees in early and opened on
schedule at 10 a.m. to active trading.
"We intend to remain open and operate
normally," said one exchange official.
On the exchange floor, a roar went up

when the 10 a.m. bell signaled the start
of trading. "Usually they cheer when
it's closing," said James Fuller, a
senior vice president. "All the people
are in. We're fully staffed. It has had no
effect on the market."
ASIDE FROM occasional brief scuf-
fling at police barricades, the mood was
festive, with the 15-pice band providing
circus music. "I haven't had this much
fun since the 1960s," Police Capt.
Thomas Ryan said, referring to the
many anti-war protests of that decade.:
Police dragged some of the demon-
strators away by the arms, others were
transported on stretchers. Ten. buses
were on hand, 'along with a similar
number of police wagons.
-Most-of the protesters were charged
with disorderly conduct. Those who lay
down were booked for resisting arrest.
Police said 750 summons 'were issued
and 209 persons were jailed.
Stock Exchange officials had been
asked by demonstration leaders earlier
this month to suspend 61 of its mem-
bers, who deal in nuclear weapons and

More than 200 citizens jammed the
Ann Arbor City Council chambers last
night, taking advantage of the mayor's
invitation to voice their opinions con-
cerning development of the Ann Arbor
Municipal Airport.
Representatives of pilots' groups,
citizens associations, and environmen-
talists filled their five-minute speaking
time allocations with speeches for and
against the construction of a longer
runway at the Ann Arbor Airport and
the installation of a new instrument
landing system (ILS).
IN SEPTEMBER, the 11-member
mayor-appointed Airport Advisory

ens voice opinions on A2 airport

Committee recommended that a new
runway with an ultimate length of 5,050
feet be built and that a full ILS be in-
stalled. In response to Council and
citizen concern,' Republican Mayor
Louis Belcher said he set aside last
night's special session for citizen input.
Currently, the airport's main runway
at State Road and Airport Drive is 3,500
feet long and unpaved. Proponents said
a longer repositioned runway with an
ILS would be safer and provide
economic benefits to city businesses.
Opponents said increased safety and
noise problems would result and
blasted the use of city tax dollars to

subsidize theinterest of an elite group
of "pro-expansion pilots.",
Three Ann Arbor residents presented
a slide show advocating the
repositioning and lengthening of the
airports' main runway.. In the presen-
tation, they cited the use of the airport
in the transport of critically ill patients
to University Hospital. They said the
current runways are too short and un-
safe in bad weather.

Palacios tefls
Chilean coup
The moderate socialist government
of Salvador Allende Gossens was over-
thrown in 1973 because it failed to
recognize the influence of the Soviet
Union and the United States in Chilean
affairs, according to Jorge Palacios,
exiled Chilean author and philosopher
who spoke on campus last night.
Palacios, author of an inch-and-a-half
thick Marxist Leninist analysis of
Chilean politics in the 1970's, began his
speech before a crowd of about 150 in
the Michigan Ballroom. A few in the
audience left after Palacios' 35 minute
speech was read through an inter-
preter, and many more left during the
hour-and-a-half question and answer
