could be further negotiated.
Scherer said if Assembly were
to comply with the Regents and
examine new procedures for en-
forcing the existing research re-
strictions, the body would prob-
ably specify a committee with
strong powers to review classified
research proposals.
Sociology Prof Leslie Kish, a
longtime opponent of classified re-
search, said, "I don't think this
issue will go away, especially with
a general concensus for new cri-
teria. We reached a middle ground,
and had an overwhelming con-
census."
Kish said he was not sure what
the next moves would be, but back-
ers of the proposal would probably
try to convince the Regents that
a change in policy is needed.
He said he was confident there
would be an effort "to get some-
thing like the assembly proposal
passed."
Assembly member Donald Ruck-
nagel said the Regents' action
"creates a great deal of confu-
sion." He said he agreed that the
Assembly proposal was confusing,
but again indicated that he felt
the Regents should consider modi-
fications of the policies them-
selves.
Norman said he did not consider.
the Regents' actions an "affront"
to the faculty, but that "I don't
know why they did it."
He said he did not think the
Regents' action was "indicative of
the feelings of the administrative
officers," indicating he hoped
something could be worked out
with them.

Regents' vote raises questions

(Continued from Page 1)
the end of the calendar year, the
resolution states that the Re-
gents will be willing to "recon-
sider the whole problem."
According to Regent Lawrence
Lindemer (R - Stockbridge), the
Regents would be extremely un-
likely to re-consider changing the
policy on classified research if the
Willow Run transfer were success-
fully accomplished.
Apparently, the Regents feel
that the amount of classified re-
search that would remain after
Willow Run leaves the University
would be too irtsignificnt to re-
quire a new policy.
"Why make a policy on classi-
fied research when there is no
classified research to speak of?"
Regent Paul Brown (D-Petosky)
asked yesterday.
Should no new policy be en-
acted, classified research would
continue on campus at the Cooley
and Radiation laboratories, which
are part of the engineering col-
lege's electrical engineering de-
partment.
Currently, those labs are per-
forming four classified research
projects worth about $336,000. Ten
professors are involved in these
projects.
Most of the work at the Radi-
ationsLaboratory is being done on
perfecting radar and other track-
ing systems, while the Cooley in-
stallation is heavily involved in
devising electronic countermeas-
ures, which help missiles and
planes evade the electronic track-
ing systems of the enemy on the
ground.

not expand significantly after the
ties with Willow Run are ended,
Specifically, it seems likely that
the five professors who currently
work at Willow Run might want
to transfer their work to one of
the engineering college's labs in
order to retain their University
teaching appointments.

that for the first time in recent
memory, they rejected the advice
of both the University executive
officers (President Fleming and
the vice presidents) and the fac-
ulty representative body, Senate
Assembly.

idents-will work with the Senate
Advisory Committee on University
Affairs, Senate Assembly and SGC
to present a policy in accordance
with the Regents' views.
The statement provides that the
Regents will consider the policy
again "as soon as" a revision is
presented to them.
There was no clear consensus
among the Regents, at least up
until the time of the vote. A poll
conducted Thursday by The Daily
showed them widely split on thel
issue.
Several of the Regents were un-
willing to formulate any sort of
research policy at all, claiming
that one would not be needed after
the Willow Run facilities were dis-
posed of. An amendment to that
effect was defeated at yesterday's
meeting.
Thursday, the executive officers
drafted a plan which amended
Assembly's proposal. In the past.
recommendations by the executive
officers have almost always been
accepted by the Regents.
The administration's plan in-
corporated Assembly's policy, but
with several weakening restric-
tions. The plan called for all pro-

The Human Rights Party of Ann
Arbor will hold a 'Meet the Can-

Party co-ordinator Doug Cornell
stated, "This will be -a good op-
portunity for anyone in Ann Arbor
to meet our candidates and get
a delicious, inexpensive meal."
The Human Rights Party is run-
ning candidates in all five wards

They are-Jerry De Grieck, First
Ward; Nancy Wechsler, Second
Ward; Genie Plamonslon, Third
Ward; David Black, Fourth Ward;

Ward.

jects conducted at Willow Run to
continue to be reviewed under
current guidelines.
It also said that any unit of the
University which finds Assembly's
research policy unduly restrictive
could apply for a review of the
policy by the Regents; and that
the present Classified Research
Committee would continue to re-
view classified research policies
until a substitute system could be
devised.
Regent Paul Brown (D-Petos-
key) said yesterday the Regents
bypassed the amended measure be-
cause "the sentiment of the Re-
gents was to work with what we
have, not to devise an entirely new
policy."
The present research p o 1 i c y,
adopted in 1968, prohibits projects
"whose intent . . . is to incapaci-
tate human beings," but makes no
mention of classification of the re-
sults of research.
After the meeting, Regent Rob-
ert Brown (R-Kalamazpo) said,
"We think the present policy is
adequate. The biggest problem is
procedures."
"I think Assembly's proposal is
useless," he continued. "What I
would hope for is a simpler plan."
Assembly, SACUA and SGC will
not attempt to formulate plans
acceptable to the Regents.
Fleming said he did not know
when the policy could be reintro-
duced to the Regents. It is likely
that extensive debate on the re-
search procedures could preclude
regental consideration next month.
Regent Robert Nederlander (D-
Birmingham) said he did not see
"a big problem" in the rejection of
the proposal. All we're doing is
asking them to sit down and work
out the mechanisms" he said.
Regent Lawrence Lindemer (R-
Stockbridge) indicated the Regents
would be unwilling to deal with
the research issue if the Willow
Run facilities had been disposed
of. If the rejection forces a delay
long enough for the Willow Run
issue to be settled, the possibility
exists that the University will
function indefinitely under the
current policies.
