volume for last year. "If we were a $100
million company, we wouldn't have
pursued it to this point, we're not too big
to go through all the effort," he said.
Both Casoglos and Marcuss said the
decision probably would have been
favorable the first time if it had been
taken to higher levels of authority,
within the agencies.
Casoglos said the Chinese
technologists, who have been residing
in Ann Arbor since before the original
appeal learning to use the equipment,
will remain in the country until it is

ready for shipment. The Chinese have
been frustrated by the delay because
the equipment can only be used during
the warm weather months, according
to Casoglos. The American-made scan-
ners will be attached to Canadian air-
craft, most of which have already been
delivered to the PRC. He said the
Chinese want to get in some practice
flights before winter, and the lengthy
licensing action has set them back six
months. However, he said, "We're not
that far off the original contract,"

Casoglos said he thought the

cording to Marcuss.
Administration officials have denied
any connection between Brzezinski's
recent Chinese trip and this decision.
But efforts to ensure friendly U.S.-Sino
relations have been stepped up lately,
including trade relations. The
Associated Press reported yesterday
that adverse effects on U.S.-Soviet
relations have discouraged State
Department officials' approval of the
Daedalus sale.
The PRC liaison office has refused to
comment on the case, saying it involves
only the two companies named on the
what they might be doing."
For ten years after his son's death,
Huff said he talked to several public of-
ficials about receiving the insurance
benefits he feels he is entitled to.
After a decade of battling the gover-
nment, however, Huff gave up, until he-
heard that more than $70,000 in in-
surance benefits had been given to the
widow of Private Eddie Slovik, the only
American soldier to be executed for
desertion since the Civil War.
And now, Huff is fighting again, sup-
ported by a Washtenaw County
detachment of the Marine Corps,
Senators Griffin and Carr, and Rep.
