Three businessmen and one attorney
will fill the final four spots on a panel
set up to create the Michigan Research
Corporation, the group's chairman an-
nounced yesterday.
Ted Doan, president of Doan Resour-
ces, Inc., a Midland venture capital
firm; Cyrus Moscow, a Detroit attor-
ney; Monty Vincent, and executive at
Gelman Sciences, Inc. of Ann Arbor;
and Dwight Carlson, president of the
Farmington Hills firm Perceptron,
Inc., will join six University faculty
members already named to the panel,
said George Gamota, director of the
University's Institute of Science and
Technology.
The Michigan Research Corporation
is being created to help University
faculty members market their resear-
ch ideas in order to return profits to
both faculty members and the Univer-
sity.

"Our biggest task is to try to identify
good bets and line up the financial sup-
port for those bets," Gamota said.
The committee's first task will be to
find an interim director and recom-
mend a plan for forming the firm's
board of directors, Gamota said.
If the Regents approve the plan, the
University will kick in $200,000 to
establish the firm. The University's in-
vestment would make it a minority
stockholder in the firm, which would be
'controlled by its board of directors
The corporation will identify Univer-
sity research projects with market
potential and try to match those up with
the finances needed for production.
Gamota said the committee will
deliver its recommendations to the
University's executive officers in early
July.

in-depth analysis of the movement.
The conference, sponsored by the
University's Center for Afroamerican
and African Studies and the Black
Student Union, will feature Rosa Parks,
"the mother of the civil rights
movement." She will speak tonight at 7
p.m.
ALDON MORRIS, a sociology
professor who organized the event said
the conference goals are twofold.
"We just decided since it had been 20
years since the march on Washington,
it was time to look back at the (civil
rights) movement and analyze it, and
then see where we need to go from
there," he said.
Other speakers at the conference will
be Law School Prof. Wade McCree,
former U.S. solicitor general; Bernice
Reagon, director of the Smithsonian In-
stitution's Program in Black American
Culture; and Rev. C.T. Vivian, former
aide to Dr. Martin Luther King.
Accompanying the conference is a
photographic exhibit depicting the per-
sonalities and confrontations of the
movement, which is displayed at Trot-
ter House.
The programs are open to the public
and will be held in the Graduate School
of Business Administration's Hale
Auditorium.

President of the Independent Truckers Association, Michael Parkhurst, an-
nounces at a Washington press conference the end of the truckers strike.

disagree with Parkhurst.
HE'S GOT a piece of paper that's not
worth the paper it's written on,'
Sullivan yelled.
Sullivan, who claimed to represent
more than 35,000 truckers, including
most of the steel haulers, said later that
his committee would decide this
weekend whether to continue the strike.
Other truckers, angry over Parkhur-
st's announcement, said they did not'
regard the protest as over.
DURING THE strike, Parkhurst had
said repeatedly that protesting
truckers would return to work only if
Congress repealed the tax and fee in-
creases. But he said yesterday that the
commitment from the Congressmen
was the best that could be achieved.
It was not known how many of the
truckers would follow Parkhurst's
request to end the strike, but federal of-

ficials said privately that they coa-
sidered the protest virtually finish&d
anyway.
Parkhurst said that a letter being ci-
culated in Congress by Rep. Dougla
Applegate (D-Ohio) seeks a legislative
review of the tax and fee boosts with the
aim of making them more equitable for
independent truck drivers.
PARKHURST said it was "a com-
mitment on the part of a substantial
number of congressmen to "look at th
taxes" and was the best he could have
accomplished.
Rep. Peter Kostmayer (D-Pa.), who
also circulated the letter, called it "a
commitment of a winningness to listen"
to the truckers, and Applegate said .ht
expected congressional hearings would
be held. Parkhurst did not identify the
35 congressmen he said had agreed to
hear the truckers' complaints.
While the organizers planned their
next move, the strike was losing steam
around the country. Police reported
few acts of violence, and no shortages
of goods were attributed to the protest.
TRUCK TRAFFIC was increasing s
the number of reports of vandalism
against operating rigs dropped sharply
from last week, when more than 1,700
trucks were damaged, including 560 hit
by gunfire. In addition to the lone
fatality, 66 people have been injured
and 95. people arrested in connectio
with the strike.
"It looks like the thing is over"
Michael Pfleuger, an Agriculture
Department official said Wednesday;
He said fresh produce arriving in Ne
York City had increased by 73 pereit
over the previous week.
The letter being circulated in
Congress urged Speaker Thomas
O'Neill and Rep. Dan Rostenkowski (t
Ill.), chairman of the House Ways anrd
Means Committee, to review trucker'
complaints about the sharp, recent ir-
creases in highway user fees on trucks.
"The letter is a key to what out
position will be," Parkhurst said.
Parkhurst previously had saii
Congress would have to roll back tl
increase in user fees before the strike is
halted. But before he met with hi
regional representatives yesterda:
Pakhurst said that if a substanti
number of congressmen signed the let-
ter, "there's a very good chance" hi
group would urge drivers to halt thei
protest.-
Applegate and the three othe
congressmen who are trying to end th
strike began Wednesday to circulat
their letter seeking a congressionI
review of the fee increase and a 5-cen
a-gallon boost in the federal excise ta
on gasoline and diesel fuel whic>
Congress enacted shortly before
