CIA discloses

academic corps

(Continued from Page 1)
were compiled by CIA employees and
generally concerned China or the Soviet
Union.
Albert Feuewerker, director of the
Center for Chinese Studies, said many
people receive these reference aids. He
said, "We (the Center for Chinese
Studies) get all their publications -
look in our library, we want those
publications."
In October of 1974 Weiying Wan, head
of the Asia Library wrote to CIA Coor-
dinator for Academic Relations Gary
Foster. In the letter he wrote that "the
Reference Aid series issued by your
Agency are indispensable reference
works for the studies of Contemporary
China."
Weiying Wan asked Foster if it would
be possible for the library to receive all
titles in the Agency's reference aid
series. He assured Foster that due to
recent renovations the "Contemporary
China Reference Collection is now
housed in a restricted area to which

only qualified scholars have access."
Foster replied with a list of Reference
Aids on China that "have been made
available to the public for a fee via the
Document Expediting project."
The released CIA documents show
that University professors have been
receiving reference materials from the
Agency since 1967.
Before all professors were allowed to
use these reference aids only a very
small group of scholars, selected by the
CIA, were given the advantage of direct
access to the government's leading in-
telligence source.,
In the released documents the largest
number of nation-wide recipients on the
CIA mailing list for reference aids was
forty-two - the smallest was eight, ac-
cording to the released documents..

While anyone who wants these
reference aids can now buy them from
the government, the CIA documents
show that several University professors
still received their reference aids direc-
tly from the CIA.
In disbributing the reference aids
the CIA always sought anonymity. On
July 16, 1975 Foster sent 13 individuals a
"background paper" which had been
discussed at the San Francisco
seminar.
Foster wrote that he had "removed
the 'Official Use Only' caveat from it,
but hope that you will honor our desire
to avoid attribution."
In a much earlier case a CIA em-
ployee and a University professor work
together to release classified an un-
classified CIA document for general

use among scholars. But problems
arose.
The CIA employee wrote: "There will
be no problem getting these items
declassified or decontrolled. The
question is how do we get these
desposited for academic use. (I am
already assuming that this is a
desirable goal.)."
Of all the professors asked about
possible connection with the CIA, no
one said they had any connection with
the agency but several have said that
through academic life they personally
know people in the CIA.
Many of the letters from which the
material in this article was taker
demonstrates both personal and
professional relationships between
University professors and the CIA.
The Campaign to stop Government
Spying, headed by Morton Halperin;
former Deputy Assistant Secretary of
defense and one-time Senior Staff
member of the National Security Coun-
cil, has' asked University President
Robben Fleming to initiate an effort to
adopt guidelines defining what should
be the proper relationship between in-
telligence agencies and University em
ployees.
Hal Candee, a Campaign represen-
tative, said his group was most worried
about the CIA using professors for:
recruiting. He said that in some cases
the professor may be an unwitting
recruiter.
The agency might ask a professor if
he knows a student who fits the CIA's
particuilar needs, said CAndee. If the
professor gives the Agency a student's
name, "he's setting them up for an in-
vestigation."
Candee said this investigation is done
without the knowledge or consent of the
student. "This is an invasion of
privacy," he said.

"I can see why consolidation is a gooi
thing. You can take space and get more
room," he said. "But $3.5 million and
rising dorm rates and no new construo-
tion of dorms, it seems kind of funn
they'd want this consolidation. It'h
really stupid the way everyone eats iti
their own dorms ... there's a lot of
duplication."
SOPHOMORE Steve Tumen,
president of Alice Lloyd's student
government, said he thinks con-
solidation is "a really good idea."
"As it is, a lot of people in the Hill
dorms don't have much chance to
socialize," he said. "With the Hill dor-
ms as close as they are it wouldn't be
much of an inconvenience.
"I think it's (consolidation) a good
idea because dorm rates have been
going up seven to eight per cent each
year and I know for a fact one of the
biggest reasons for consolidation of
food services is high labor costs," said
sophomore Mike Raymond, former
president of the Mosher-Jordan student
government. "Most people would mind
the inconvenience. . . I think I'd get
used to it."
SOPHOMORE Gina Tonge, outgoing
president of Couzens' government, said
she has mixed emotions about the con
solidation concept.
"I like the idea of eating in your own
dining room in your own dorm, but if
it's (consolidation) going to save money

in the long run, I don't know which is
better," she said. "Consolidation seems
to work at other campuses.
"I'd rather have food service stay in
Stockwell" said Kathy Solomonso
president of that dorm's government;
"We have a lot better food-than most
places, but I guess that's not really faire
If they could handle all the people
coming in without long lines, I guess it
wouldn't be a bad idea."
Henry Johnson, University vices
president for student services, said apt
proval of any consolidation plan mad
not come before next fall.
