MSA seeks 'U' research change

By BETH ALLEN
Michigan Student Assembly members endorsed the
recommendations of d recently submitted MSA-
commissioned report on defense research at the
University, calling for University
guidelines on classified research to be extended to
cover all research.
MSA also recommended that the University set up
a panel of faculty members and students to enforce
the proposed extended guidelines.
THE NEW policy statement also suggests a review
of all Department of Defense-sponsored research
projects by an additional committee of faculty mem-
bers, students, and staff members.

The proposed committee would not necessarily
take action against any researchers on campus, said
MSA President Jon Feiger, but would force the
University to examine defense' research on campus
more closely.
Current University guidelines prohibit classified
research on campus that would endanger human life.
MSA'S POLICY statement is similar to- a recom-
mendation made by the University's Research Policy
Committee, which also pushed for extending the
University guidelines to include all research.
Feiger said he will present both the policy and
MSA's report on defense research at the University-
written and researched by Bret Eynon, a local

historian-to the University Regents at next week's
meeting.
In other matters, MSA agreed to include a recom-
mendation for the formation of a central University
body to handle complaints involving hazings.
MSA VICE President Amy Hartmann said the
hazing recommendation is intended as a safeguard to
back up the MSA's previous proposal requiring MSA-
sanctioned student groups to submit their plans for
punishing hazing violators by March 1.
MSA has also recently selected accounting major
Jim Flaun as treasurer to replace former MSA
Treasurer Steve Hochberg, whose term ended last
week.

Public Health's investigation into the
matter is continuing, according to the
department's director, Dr. Bailus
Walker.,
Theinvestigation should be con-
cluded by the end of the week, he said,
but samples of ceiling tile taken from
the Frieze Building did. not contain
asbestos, as first feared.
HE ALSO SAID that he hoped the
matter could be settled by the Univer-
sity without the involvment of a state
government agency.
At yesterday's meeting, the group
agreed that the University, not Schiller
Construction, will undertake the cleanup
operation because some University
Plan Operations employees have been
trained to properly remove asbestos in-
sulation.

Joy said that if University em-
ployees are used to clean up the site
there will be no time delay in removing
the asbestos. He said the removal
proceedure has been used many times
before by the University.
THE GROUP estimated that only
about 100 feet of pipe on the ground
floor and 400 feet of pipe in the
basement will be either completely
removed or taped up by the cleanup
crew. And it is possible that not all of
the pipe involved has insulation con-
taining asbestos, according to Joy.
"Until the area is cleaned up it will be
restricted to cleanup personnel," Joy
said. "The contractors (Eames and
Brown) will identify those pipes with
suspected asbestos insulation and a
cleanup crew of two or three will do a
thorough wash job of the entire area."
The wash job involves spraying all
the pipes with a concentrated detergent
to limit the amount of asbestos par-
ticles that would otherwise escape into
the air, Joy said.
AFTER THAT, Joy said, the workers
will either cut out the pipes altogether
or temporarily wrap the insulation with
tape.
"We can dispose of it (the asbestos)
in whatever way we get it," Joy said.
Union Director Frank Cianciola said
he will write the cleanup order to.
"remove, repair and dispose of the
asbestos in the affected areas."
Hui recommended that the Univer-
sity undertake permanent repairs at
this time. "We can just clean up and
make temporary repairs in one step,"
he said.
JOY SAID HIS department will con-
tinue to test different substances such
as "dry walls," which also may contain
asbestos..
"We just most use caution now," he
said, "everything is O.K.
"We must identify suspicious areas
- old-type insulation," Joy said,
although he hasn't seen any "dry
walls" in the Union.
A "dry wall" is a product used in con-
struction made up of gypsum and paper
used instead of plaster. The seam com-
pound used to help smooth out such a
wall may contain asbestos.

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
Trooper killed on U.S. 127
LANSING- A 28-year-old state police trooper shot on U.S. 127 between
Lansing and Jackson died yesterday at Jackson's Foote East Hospital.
Five persons believed connected with the shooting of Trooper Craig Scott
of Holt were arrested shortly after the incident. Police believed a sixth may
still be at large.
Scott apparently had stopped a car at about 1 p.m. just north of the
Ingham-Jackson county line for a more or less routine traffic violation when
the shooting occurred, according to Capt. Richard Abbott of the Ingham
county Sheriff's Department.
Civil rights marchers draw
few supporters at hearing
GREENSBORO, Ala.- Civil rights leaders interrupted a march through
Alabama yesterday to solicit testimony on alleged voter discrimination, but
only a few blacks showed up to testify.
The Hale County sheriff's office said a small number of blacks had ap-
peared at the courthouse by noon, two hours after the march organizers had
said members of the Congressional Black Caucus would convene an infor-
mal hearing.
About 45 marchers are making a 160-mile trek through central Alabama.
They are advocating extension of the 1965 Voting Rights Act and protesting
the vote fraud convictions of two black Pickens County women.
Congress passes more.
unemployment benefits
WASHINGTON- Republicans and Democrats swapped charges on the
House floor yesterdayabout who was to blame for the recession, then joined
forces to approve President Reagan's plan for an additional $2.3 billion for
benefits and services for the unemployed.
The vote was 398-3 to approve the measure and send it to the Senate.
The House took its action after voting 342-62 for a measure that Reagan
does not want-$123 million in increased funds to help poor people pay their
heating bills in the coldest winter of the century.
Despite White House opposition, Republicans made no organized attempt
to defeat the measure, and Senate Republicans said the bill would pass
there, too.
Colleague's report altered
says Atlanta witness
ATLANTA- An expert on water flow told the jury in Wayne Williams'
murder trial yesterday that prosecutors pressured his colleague to change a
report on how a body would float in the Chattahoochee River.
David Dingle, a hydrologist with the National Weather Service, said he
told defense lawyers about the change and offered to testify as a defense
witness because he was worried about "the potential impact that might have
on the trial."
Watt defies subpoena;
House cites for contempt
,.WASHINGTON- A House subcommittee voted 11-6 yesterday to cite In-
terior Secretary James Watt for contempt of Congress because he defied a
subpoena for documents relating to Canadian energy policy.
The contempt motion was approved by all 10 Democrats and by the
ranking Republican on the House Energy and Commerce subcommittee on
investigations. Six Republicans voted against the contempt citation, but only
one spoke against it.
The subcommittee's chairman, Rep. John Dingell (D-Mich.), said he
hoped the contempt vote alone would be enough to prod the Reagan ad-
ministration into producing the subpoenaed documents. 'Watt withheld the
documents under a claim of executive privilege, on orders from President
Reagan.
