coalition claims that the assem-
bly's proposed policies provide an
"unnecessarily complicated frame-
work in which research is to be
The coalition statement con-
tends it should be the University's
aim to impose as few restrictions
on faculty research as possible.
The reform coalition also states
that by extending the guidelines to
both classified and proprietary re-
search, the proposal "infringes on
the traditional freedom which has
been enjoyed by non-classified re-
The coalition's plan calls for the
University not to enter into any
contract which classifies the re-
sults of research, unless a classi-
fied status is necessary to gain
access to classified information
It also provides an 18-month
period for completion of current
classified projects before the new
policy would go into effect.
At tomorrow's meeting, the Re-
gents will also discuss a funding
proposal for the Public Interest
and Research Group in Michigan
(PIRGIM), a student advocacy
group conceived by consumer ad-
vocate Ralph Nader.
PIRGIM's funding proposal calls
for a refundable assessment from
every student in the state of $3.00.
The money would be assessed by
the universities, and subsequently
turned over to the group.
The research issue began last
year with a series of demonstra-
tions against war-related research
and a weeklong protest fast by
some 60 faculty members.
The assembly then instructed its
R e s e a r c h Policies Committee,
which investigates the University's
research practices, to conduct a
study of University classified re-
search guidelines and to present
recommendations for p o s s i b 1 e
changes in it.
The RPC report was bypassed
by the assembly last fall, however,
in favor of a resolution introduced
by sociology Prof. Howard Schu-
The proposal called for the Uni-
versity not to enter into or re-
new any federal contract or grant
that limits open publication of the
results of research, unless the pro-
ject was likely to contribute sig-
nificantly "to the advancement of
The Schuman resolution was
scheduled' to be presented to the
Regents last December, but be-
came stalled as several of the Re-
gents and President Robbin Flem-
ing were unwilling to deal with
the classified research issue until
RPC completed a report on pro-
prietary research aswell.
Supporters of the proposal ar-
gued that the two types of re-
search should be treated as sep-
arate issues. They feared that
because of overriding sentiment
against strong sanctions govern-
ing proprietary research, and be-
cause of the large amount of such
research done at the University,
any joint policy for both types of
research would have the effect of
weakening restrictions on war-re-
lated federal research.
It now appears that their fears
were unfounded, as the new as-
sembly resolution on both types of
research still prohibits most fed-
eral classified research.
The assembly, however, has not
yet considered procedures for the
implementation of the plan.
The Schuman resolution called
for the formation of a twelve-
menber committee to review all
requests for exemptions from the
The committee was to include
two members who are philosophi-
cally opposed to classified re-
search, two members who are en-
gaged in classified research at the
time of their appointments and
two student members.
This time, however, the assem-
bly decided not to include the pro-
The lack of procedural plans
could conceivably stall the plan
temporarily. Assembly members
feel the Regents will look to the
earlier Schuman proposed with re-
gards to their intent on the ques-
tion of procedures.
Delta Sigma Theta sorority is
conducting a bucket drive this
week aimed at raising $1,000 for
research into sickle - cell anemia
-an incurable hereditary disease
which attacks the blood cells. It
particularly affects black people.
According to Cesena Hayes, one
of the organizers of therbucket
drive, the sorority's efforts will
be concentrated on the central
campus area tomorrow and in the
downtown Ann Arbor area Friday.
Money raised will be donated to
the Kerwood Hospital Research
Center in Detroit.
The disease affects from sever
to eight per cent of American
blacks and a much greater num-
ber of Africans.

A reported bomb threat at police
headquarters in City Hall yester-
day afternoon led to the evacua-

after intense investigation, no
bomb was found on the premises.
According to Lieutenant Kenneth

bomb had been placed in the police
office and would go off in five
Klinge said that there was no

Sometimes it looks like there's a conspiracy
to get you to have children.
You're married and it's great being alone
with your husband, discovering each other
and feeling free to do whatever you want.
But already your girlfriends are telling
you how wonderful children are and how
selfish it is to wait and anything else they
can think of to make you feel guilty.
Actually the girls are only part of it.
Let us not forget the future grand-
facts of birth planning. (Lots of people who
think they know, don't. Research statistics
show that more than half the pregnancies
