WASHINGTON (UPI) - An influen-
tial citizen's committee said yesterday
the administation's defense budget is
dangerously inadequate and should be
increased by nearly $100 billion over the
next five years.
In contrast to members of Congress
who seek to trim the $214 billion defense
program in order to reduce the deficit,
the Committee on the Present Danger
issued a statement calling it "grossly
inadequate" given the dimensions of
the Soviet threat.
IT IS RIDICULOUS to say we can't
afford it," Herbert Stein, a member of
the President's Economic Policy Ad-
visory Board who serves n the commit-
tee's executive board, told a news con-
ference.

Some 40 members of the committee,
a private group which was in the
forefront of the successful effort to bar
ratification of the SALT II treaty, hold
key positions in the administration.
They include Eugene Rostow, head of
the Arms Control and Disarmament
Agency, and Paul Nitze, U.S. negotiator
at the Geneva talks on intermediate-
range missiles in Europe.
William Van Cleave, director of the
Defense and Strategic Studies Program
at the University of Southern Califor-
nia, said the short-term spending would
go 4to increase defenses around the
existing Minutemen missiles as well as
to beef up the present B-52 strategic
bomber program.

benefit individuals or universities
financially.
"If, in a proposal, an investigator
describes a machine that is patentable,
for example, and that proposal is
released, then you've given it away,"
Lesch said.
"We'll be asking, 'Is there or is there
not proprietary information in the
proposal that can be and should be
protected from release?' " he said.
Lesch said that in the past, if a
faculty member had wanted such in-
formation kept confidential, the ad-
ministration would comply. He said,
however, that he could not remember
a case in which a researcher had made
such a request.
"WITH THE increasing awareness of
possible patents, we decided we better
formalize this procedure," he ex-
plained.
Lesch said that under the proposed
policy, information pertaining to the
purpose and scope of .every project
would remain public. "You can't just
mark anything willy-nilly. You will
have to be able to provide justification
for it."
He estimated that the policy might be
applicable to between 5 percent and 10
percent of research proposals.

MSA PRESIDENT Feiger said such a
policy might violate the state's
Freedom of Information Act. Acgor-
ding to Lesch, however, the act does 'not
apply to the type of material the policy
would restrict.
Lesch said the proposal was to be
reviewed yesterday by Overberger,
and could be sent on for the approval of
the University's executive officers
Monday.
Feiger said he is meeting with Lesch
today to find out what parts of his latest
request for defense-related information
will be denied, and he plans to take the
issue up with the University Regents
this afternoon.

and natural, with the last being the
most preferable.
"Civil rightsis nothing more than
base greed. It's an attempt by groups of
people to get a piece of stolen pie from
the original thieves," Means said.
Means is the leader of the Yellow
Thunder Camp Indian settlement in the
Black Hills of South Dakota. He first
gained fame as a key defendant in the
1973 Wounded Knee trials. At present,
Means is involved in a federal court
case concerning the eviction of the
Yellow Thunder Camp from its Black
Hills site.
THE CAMP bases its existence
claims on the 1868 Fort Laramie
Treaty, Article 6 of the U.S. Con-
stitution, and the 1978 Indian Freedom
of Religion Act. In 1878, however, the
U.S. government seized the land after
extensive gold deposits were found in
the hills. Recently, the Supreme Court
condoned the government land seizure
and ruled monetary compensation for
the Indians. But the Indians reject this
offer and maintain that the Black Hills
are not for sale.
Means, however, did not focus on the
camp in his speech at the law school.
Instead, he addressed the"propaganda
coup" of the United Staes which has
been very successful in. propagating
falsehoods about the origins of the
American Indians.
"Slave owner Thomas Jefferson said
that the Indians came from China
during the Ice Age," Means said, later
laughing over the statement. "Not one
fact ever justified that, yet it's taught in
this nation's universities."
DENYING other false Indian origin
notions, Means said, "The Mormons
think we're Jewish and those intellec-
tual clowns on the circuit these days
say we came from the sunken continent
of Atlantis."
Complimenting the success of such
propaganda, Means said, "The white

man even has Indians professing we
came from China - and sounding very
legitimate. My people doubt their very
existence."
Means then shifted his discussion to
compliments of his own people. "We
understand the cycle of life. According
to the anthros and archaes and all the
other ologists, we didn't suffer from
any diseases, not any, not even tooth
decay."
HE CONTINUED along these lines by
comparing Indians to the other peoples
of the world. "We don't want change.
If you're happy, why change a good
thing? Unhappy people make history,
by looking for utopia on earth, whether
by trickle down or Marxism."
Means emphasized his apprisal of
present day society stating that "the
'death culture' has taken everyone
toward species suicide." He qualified
his ideology by saying, "It all began
when Isaac Newton reduced natural
beauty to a linear mathematical
equation."
The concept of utopia or heaven on
earth isn't helping the earth's "natural
beings," Means said. In order to bring
a new and different revolution to the
world from human , to civil, to natural
rights, people must listen to their
ultimate mothers, Means said. The
ultimate mother is the land, he added.
Means was introduced by hisbrother
William, who said, "Whenever people
have pursued rights, they have been
called patriots. Others have been
called militants. There is a fine line
between patriots and militants. Russell
is the patriot."
