In the opinion of the Commit-
tee, it received no compelling
evidence for the categorical eli-
mination of all classified re-
search although certain presti-
gious universities have to some
extent done so and many wit-
nesses expressed fears that un-
favorable consequences of class-
ified research might exist or
eventually occur.
Since the Committee could
find no satisfactory categoriza-
tion for acceptable and unac-
ceptable research it recommends
continued adherence to the pro-
ject by project review for ap-
propriateness under a set of of-
ficially approved policies.
Policy I (of the current guide-
lines on classified research)
states that classified research
which has as its "specific pur-
pose" the destruction of human
life or the incapacitation of hu-
man beings is inappropriate for
the University.
It was clear, however, that
the meaning of the words "spe-
cific purpose" was different de-

pending on whether an indivi-
dual chose to define "specific
purpose" in a narrow or broad
sense.
. . . The Committee recom-
mends that Policy I be altered
to read: The University will not
engage in any research, the spe-
cific purpose or clearly forsee-
able results of. which are injur-
ious to human life or welfare.
The Committee is of the opin-
ion that the proposed term,
"clearly forseeable results" in
the new version of Policy I de-
fines the types'of prohibited re-
search more stringently than
does the "specific = purpose"
statement in the initial word-
ing of Policy I.
THE PROPOSED CHANGE in
wording of Policy I makes this
policy applicable to all research
carried on at the University. No
longer does the word "classified"
appear in any of the policy
statements. The Committee re-
commends that Senate Assembly
urge the Regents to explicitly
adopt Policies I-IV (the present
guidelines on classified re-
search) as governing policy for
all research at the University.
Up to the time when the pre-
sent Committee began its stu-
dies of classified research, the
University community was pro-
vided with only limited inform-
ation regarding the scope and
purpose of clasified research
projects, thus hampering "in-
formed discusion" concerning
the appropriateness of s u c h
projects.
The Committee . . . recom-
mends that upon funding of a
project previously approved by
the Clasified Research Commit-
tee, a copy of the pre-proposal
summary form (description of
the project submitted by the re-
searcher) and of the "work-
statement" (the guidelines on
request from the government to
submit a project) be filed in
the SACUA office open to the
University community . . .
THE NUMBER of students re-
ceiving research training is

greater, in proportion to the size
of staff and budget and scope
of the operation in the depart-
mentally based Radiation a n d
Cooley Electronics Laboratories
than it is at the Willow R u n
Laboratories .
Therefore, the Committee re-
commends that a study be ini-
tiated immediately to ascertain
how the geographical location
and administrative structure of
Willow Run Laboratories, in re-
lation to the University, can be
improved to the mutual advant-
age of the Laboratories and the
remainder of the University.
The study (by the committee)
revealed that the "summary of
the proposal" as prepared by the
applicant-researcher and pre-
sented in the Pre-proposal Sum-
mary Form did not appear al-
ways to convey adequately the
desires of the sponsor.
Conceivably, the additional,
more detailed information might
have altered the decision of the
reviewing committee.
THE COMMITTEE recom-
mends that the Classified Re-
search Committee have access
during its review of a proposal
to the specific "work statement"
from the sponsor's Request for
Quotation or Request for Pro-
posal in case of a solicited pro-
posal, or from the proposal in
case of an unsolicited proposal.
Obviously, in the case of work
statement and proposals hav-
ing clasified portions, the Class-
ified Research Committee will
have to depend on the services
of its members who hold secur-
ity clearance.
. . . The Committee recom-
mends that at least three mem-
bers of the Classiifed Research
Committee hold security clear-
ance.
In the opinion of the Com-
mittee some means should be
developed to assure the Univer-
sity community that classified
research approved by the Classi-
fied Research Committee, sub-
sequently funded and completed

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE UNIVERSITY FRESHMAN COEDS

rirrwrwmrr

Now that you have been welcomed by the RA in your dorm and the friendly bookstore
cashier, the women of Gamma Phi Beta would also like to extend their personal welcome to
you. Our greeting however, is of a different type; not only are we glad you have chosen to
become a part of the Ann Arbor community, we are extending an invitation to you personally
to explore the many diverse facets of our particular sorority.
Don't let that word turn you off so fast! If you claim that you're not interested because
your mind is too open for that kind of thing, then maybe you had better take a second look.
Do you really know what a sorority is, or do you still labor under the misconception that it's

a big old house with funny looking letters over the door? In the past several years,1
ities at Michigan have undergone some pretty drastic changes. They are no longer
orous social organizations of which your mother speaks, they are not the "in loco
institutions which your older sister shunned, and they most certainly are not the

the soror-
the glam-
parentis"
exclusive

cliques which popular opinion makes them out to be. You will find, if you choose to accept an
invitation, that the sororities at Michigan, and Gamma Phi Beta in particular, are like an ever
expanding collage. We are a conglomeration of distinctly different personalities joined to-
gether by a time tested bond of friendship for the purpose of drawing the utmost from the
university experience-academically, socially, and most important of all, personally. We have
adopted a life style which presents the continual challenge of individual involvement, not so
much of a string of Greek letters or a system of outdated ritual, but to another woman-your
sister.
We believe that we have a wealth of worthwhile ideas and experiences to share with
you. But we also realize that there is an equal wealth on your part which may be shared with
us, so we are taking the initiative in inviting you over to take a look at us. This coming Wednes-
day and Thursday from 7-10 p.m. we are having an open house and we would very much
like to have you stop by. After all, if you don't try a taste of something new how are you
going to be able to formulate an honest opinion of it? And if you come and see and still
don't thing that Gamma Phi is your bag, did it really hurt to expand your mind a little by
meeting some new people?
And so we welcome you to the University. We welcome you to it's independence, its
vast store of knowledge, and its great reservoir of personal experience. But we also extend
to you an invitation to sample the reservoir of experience and personality at Gamma Phi Beta.
