'U' deans
support
proposed
research
corp.
By JIM SPARKS
The University's deans left a closed
meeting with the executive officers
yesterday morning "cautiously suppor-
tive" of a plan to start a private resear-
ch corporation with University funds,
according to Vice President for
Academic Affairs Billy Frye.
The University would be a minority
stockholder in the proposed Michigan
Research Corporation, which would
finance and help market potentially
profitable research ideas of University
faculty.
THE $200,000 from University in-
vestment funds would pay for a board
of directors, staff, and president. They,
in turn, would try to draw money from
businesses, private investors, foun-
dations, and the state.
Frye said the University's executive
officers may make a recommendation
on the MRC by the end of this month,
and begin the search for an interim
director.
He said the possibility of a December
vote on the MRC in the Senate Assem-
bly, however, may affect the timing of
any announcement.
MANY FACULTY members still
have questions about the University's
ability to control the proposed cor-
poration, and the possibility that com-
mercialism may dominate intellectual
pursuits.
"The University might find itself in
an equity position in an institution
whose goals diverge, from its (the
University's) own stated goals . . . for
example on affirmative action or
military research," said mathematics
Prof. Morton Brown.
Yet Ara Paul, dean of the College of
Pharmacy, said he doesn't think the
MRC would be detrimental to research
at the University.
"I DON'T expect we're going to turn
ourselves into an industrial research
laboratory. That's not what attracts
people to the University of Michigan."
James Duderstadt, dean of the
College of Engineering, said that while
he'd rather see the goals of the MRC
accomplished within the University, he
recognizes that "inertia" may make
that impossible.
Duderstadt said the University's con-
cern with appearances and with poten-
tial conflicts of interest limits its ability
to aggressively market faculty ideas.

Protesters flock from a foreign policy conference held yesterday at North Campus' Ford Library. Dignitaries in atten-
dance were (from left to right) former Secretaries of State William Rogers and Dean Rusk, former President Gerald
Ford, and former Secretary of State Alexander Haig.

Conference,
sparks
campus
prot ests
By BETH ALLEN
As former U.S. foreign policy makers
gathered on North Campus for yester-
day's Foreign Policy Conference, a
collection of student groups protested
throughout the afternoon against the
policies they say the visiting dignitaries
represent.
More than 200 students made the
three-mile march from the Diag to the
front of the Gerald R. Ford Library in
the late afternoon, carrying signs and
shouting anti-war and anti-defense
department slogans.
"THEY SAY we can destroy the
world eight times over - what's the need
for that?" said LSA sophomore Pat
Galluci, expressing the mixed anti-
military, nuclear freeze sentiment of
the rally.
Although the rally was coordinated
by the Progressive Student Network, a
new campus organization, the rally was
a "coalition" effort, involving many
groups and individuals, said spokesper-
son Vicki Shapiro.
Shapiro said that even though the
foreign policy experts at the conference

Suntanned Haig grabs
conference spotlight

By KENT REDDING
With all the wisdom of 20-20 hin-
dsight, former President Gerald
Ford assembled former Secretary
of State Alexander Haig Jr. and a
host of other ex-government exper-
ts in Ann Arbor yesterday for a
conference on U.S. foreign policy.
Two other former secretaries of
state, Dean Rusk and William
Rogers along with former national
security advisor Zbigniew Br-
zezinski and several former
congressmen joined Ford and
Haig in the star-studded conferen-
ce at North Campus' Gerald R
Ford Library. The conference is
intended to resolve the perennial
struggle between Congress and the
president over American foreign
policy.
THE REASON such "battlesover
turf" causes problems for the
United States, according to Ford,
is that it makes consistent and ef-
fective foreign policy virtually im-
possible, as Congress tries to
assert its influence over policy
which is usually left to the
executive branch.
Both the executive and
congressional groups largely
agreed that U.S. foreign policy
has grown increasingly hemmed in
by congressional actions. In the
wake of the Vietnam, war, the
relationship between the president
and Congress has stood on the
"shakey ground of mutual
suspicion," Ford said.
As an example, Ford cited his
problems as president in getting
Congress to allow U.S. arms sales
to Turkey and CIA intelligence
operations in Angola. "I was
precluded from carrying out
responsible policy," Ford said.
SURPRISINGLY enough, those
in the first sessin, which was com-
posed mainly of former members
of Congress, largely agreed with
Ford.

"The War Powers Act which
limited the president's use of U.S.
troops was a result of the Vietnam
War," said Hugh Scott, former
Republican Senator from Pen-
nsylvania.. "At the time it seem
justified. I've had some serious
doubts about it since.
The result of the act has been to
make implementation of foreign
policy extremely inefficient, Ford
said. The best way to solve the
problem would be to give the pr-
esident a free hand in guiding
foreign policy, Ford said.
"WE DON'T want an imperial
presidency," Ford said, but he
emphasized that the nation cannot
have 535 members of Congress
trying to put their mark on foreign
policy.
"We have to establish trust bet-
ween the White House and
Congress and we have to do it with
civility," said Rogers, who served
as Secretary of State under
President Nixon.
The two-day conference was spon-
sored by the Gerald R. Ford Foun-
dation, the Atlantic Council, a
political think-tank, the Former
Members of Congress Association,
and the University.
THE FOCUS of yesterday's
session was to point out some of the
'major problems. confronting U.S.
policy makers and delineate some
possible solutions. Today's con-
ference will try to pin down ways in
which those problems can be
solved, and is composed mostly of
University professors.
In a pre-session press conference
attended by Ford, Rusk, Rogers,
and Haig, the former president
said the recent elections were
"pretty much of a standoff."
"There was a movement toward
the center rather than to either
extreme," Ford said, adding that he

From staff reports
Former Secretary of State Alexander Haig
Jr. was sporting a neat tan yesterday. He
said he picked it up "hitting tennis balls in
Puerto Rico." He was also wearing a blonde
camel hair suit, which stood out against the
multitude of blue and grey pinstripes.
Everybody noticed.
Everybody noticed everything Haig did
yesterday, as the tough retired general gar-
nered more attention at the foreign policy
conference on North Campus than all the
other guests combined.
DOES THE MAN with bushy eyebrows
and a quick temper miss the White House?
"Oh, you're talking about withdrawal pains.
I've never been happier," he said to a flock
of hungry reporters taking down his every
word.
What about his replacement? "I think
(Schultz) can do a better job than I can, or I

.,,

wouldn't have left."
Haig talked freely with reporters, and
even signed some autographs - one gutsy
student had his picture taken with the ex-
secretary.
WHEN FORMER President "Go-Blue"
Ford heaped lavish praise on Haig, the man
in the camel hair smiled and said Ford's
comments were "richly deserved, and
seldom received."
There was also a subtle game of state
department intrigue played at the conferen-
ce. Carter's national security advisor Zbigniew
Brzezinski walked in late and sat opposite
Ford and Haig (who sat together), in an im-
plicit foreign policy rebuff.
How'd they get $20,000-per-lecture Haig to
come to Ann Arbor? "All they had to do was
ask. I haven't been doing very much
lately," he said. Just hitting those tennis
balls.

Escapee to stand trial
on four felony charges

YippieAbbie Hoffman
talks on democracy

By GREG BRUSSTAR
Convicted murderer Kyle Johnson
was ordered yesterday to stand trial for
four felony counts stemming from his
escape from a prison van three weeks
ago.
Johnson will stand trial Tuesday in
front of Circuit Court Judge Edward
Deake for two counts of breaking and
entering, escape from custody, and
assault with intent to do great bodily
harm.
WASHTENAW County Prosecutor
William Delhey called four witnesses to
the stand in yesterday's pre-trial
hearing, including Maris Marley, 43,
who is credited with aiding police in

Johnson's arrest.
The pre-trial hearing was held in City
Hall, before 15th District Courty Judge
Pieter Thommasen.
Marley, of South Lyon, said Johnson
broke into her home through a sliding
glass doorland assaulted her before she
could escape and call the police.
"I asked him who he was and he
didn't say anything," she said. "Then I
picked up a dining room chair and
threw it at him."
ONCE IN the house, Johnson struck
her on the face and head, she said. She
has since had plastic surgery around
her eye. She also received several stit-
ches on the top of her head, and
sprained her hand as a result of the at-

tack.
After Johnson struck her, she went
into the kitchen to wash the blood off
her face and he ordered her to fix him
breakfast. As she was cooking he said
he wanted to take a shower, she said.
She directed him to the bathroom and
turned on the water for him.
She said she escaped her home and
notified police while Johnson was
taking a shower.
Johnson interrupted her testimony
saying, "That ain't right - these are all
lies."
CORRECTIONS officer Michael
Kline, who drove the prison van from
which Johnson escaped Oct. 22, said

Special to the Daily
ROCHESTER- Abbie Hoffman-
'60s Yippie, '70s fugitive, and '80s ac-
tivist-visited Oakland University
yesterday to teach students what
democracy is all about.
Updating '60s rhetoric with '80s
issues, Hoffman told nearly 350
eager listeners that now is the time
to forget causes, and concentrate on
issues. "Don't get involved in
causes, all causes are lost causes,"
he said. "You have to think big, but
act small. You have to forget causes
and start thinking issues."
HOFFMAN, a leading figure
during the '60s student protest,
joined the civil rights movement af-

ter earning a degree in clinical
psychology. In 1964 he formed the
Youth International Party-the
Yippies- and in 1968 made a further
name for himself as a member of the
Chicago Seven.
In 1973, facing a life sentence for
dealing cocaine, Hoffman fled un-
derground. There he stayed until
1978, when he resurfaced under an
assumed name to protest the plan-
ned destruction of the 1,000 islands
between Canada and New York
State.
Hoffman turned himself in two
years later, served a one-year stint
in prison, and is currently in a work
release program allowing him to
