By The Associated Press
Appeals courts will convene today in Washington and
New York to consider the government's plea that the New
York Times and the Washington Post be enjoined from
printing articles from secret Pentagon documents concern-
ing U.S. involvement in Indochina.
As the nine judges of the Washington Circuit Court will
be sitting down to hear the Post case, a similar eight-mem-
ber bench of the U.S. Circuit Court in New York will hear
a government appeal of a similar ruling by U.S. District
Court Judge Murray Gurfein in a case involving the New
York Times. -
In both cases, federal 4 '
judges have denied the gov- Un t r
ernment's requests for injunc- *
tions to cease publication of the
articles, but the papers remain
under restraint due to govern- d is u te n ot
ment appeals of both dec ions.

After hearing an interim re-
port from its Research Policies
Committee, (RPC) Senate As-
sembly - the faculty representa-
tive body-voted to postpone ac-
tion on limiting classified re-
search at the University until
September when the RPC report
will be completed.
The committee's interim re-
port, presented by chemistry
Prof. Isadore Bernstein, the com-
mittee chairman, offered only
one suggestion for changing the
present regental guidelines on
classified research.
Instead, the report focused pri-
marily on administrative changes
to be used in approving classified
research contracts.
Senate Assembly asked the
committee last March 22 to study
current research guidelines a3
report back to the unit.
But difficulties in preparing the
study necessitated yesterday's
interim report and the subsequent
delay in Assembly action on the
research .question until Septem-
Present research guidelines,
adopted by the Regents in 1918,
state that the University "will
not enter into any classified re-
search contract the specific pur-
pose of which is to destroy hu-
man life or incapacitate human
The committee recommended
this passage be altered to read:
"The University will not engage
in any research, the specific pur-
pose or clearly forseeable re-
sults of which are injurious to
human life or welfare."
Several Assembly members
criticized this policy as being
just as vague and unworkable as
the present wording has been al-
leged to be.
The committee also urged a
number of administrative pre-

cedures to be adopted by the
Classified Research Committee
(CRC), the unit which stud.es all
classified proijcts to determin'
whether they comply wirs Jhe
1968 research guidelines.
In addition to the "preproposal
summary forms", which the re-
searcher furnishes CRC to out-
line his project, RPC suggested
that "work statement forms"
(which specify exactly the work
to be performed) be made avail-
able to CRC.
The statements would not ?I-
ways be available to all mem-
bers of the committee, however,
as many of them are classified
and not all CRC members have
the necessary governmeat secur-
ity clearance to examine the
forms, Bernstein explained.
RPC also reconim-nded that a
"disinterested group" should

carry nut a re
tract at the an
year to deter
priateness of th
been done," at
as to whether t
be renewed.

Women stage anti-waractivities

"It's so nice to see other people doing im-
possible, absurd things, as it gives many of
us a sense of kinship," said sociologist Alice
Rossi in a letter to local organizers of Women
Uniting to End the War tWUEW.)
The task of WUEW leaders seems to have
been next to impossible, as they ended yes-
terday a campaign which attempted in only
six weeks, to unite American women in a na-
tionwide protest against the Indochina war.
Activities in Ann Arbor yesterday calling
for an end to the "longest war on the longest
day of the year," included programs for col-
lecting food and clothing for war victims and
migrant workers, gatherings of women writ-
ing to their congressmen to protest U.S. policy
in Indochina, a peace vigil, and a candlelight

march from St. Thomas Church to the Coun-
ty Building.
The focus of yesterday's activities was a
nation-wide boycott of all stores by women
who disagreed with the administration's
policy in southeast Asia.
Merchants in Ann Arbor, however, declared
that their business yesterday was "normal
for a Monday afternoon."
"The intent of the boycott," stressed one
of WUEW's leaders Jean Converse, "is not to
deprive stores of business, but to make women
aware of the feelings of other women con-
cerning the war. It may make them realize
that their mothers feel the same way they do."
Although a large lull in business was not
seen, leaders of WUEW were confident that
their efforts had succeeded-in commnunicating
a message to American women.
