Faculty
passes new
policy
(Continued from Page 1)
review committee and means for en-
forcing the policy are essential."
The policies committee's original
proposal called for a halt to research,
"the primary purpose of which" would
kill or incapacitate human beings.
But some faculty members said the
proposal would allow for more - and
more dangerous - military work.
"Primary purpose, so weakens the
statement," said RPC member Donald
Hultquist, professor of animal
medicine," that no research project
would be rejected on this statement. I
cannot recommend the recommen-
dation of this committee."
The guidelines were amended twice
yesterday on the floor of the Assembly.
History Prof. David Hollinger changed
the words "primary purpose" to read
"substantial purpose," and Prof.
Jonathan Thornton, also of the history
department amended the phrase to
read "temporarily" incapacitated.
"The word primary is too extreme -
what we need is a slightly different
wording to express what the principle is
to be," said Hollinger.
Thornton said his amendment was
important, because "otherwise the
policy would prohibit research in
anesthesiology where a patient would
be incapacitated but only tem-
porarily," said Thornton.
SOME ASSEMBLY members argued
that not only were the amended wording
changes inappropriate, but the entire
idea of restricting research bothered
them.
Law Prof. Douglas Kahn said that the
word change was ambiguous, however,
and that the entire idea of having any
policy was disturbing. "What troubles
me most is the underlying assumption
that it's desirable to have a policy at all.
My own view is that it is totally inap-
propriate. The basic aspect of any
university is freedom of thought, and
that the University should set up a
moral standard is hardly appropriate."
Following passage of the
"philosophical" part of the recommen-
dations, so termed by Senate Assembly
Chairman Ronald Bishop, the assembly
turned to the second half of the commit-
tee's recommendations, which called
for -school by school review .of non-
classified research projects.
ENGINEERING Prof. Dale Briggs,
said that research should be reviewed
within each peer group, but also said
the right to appeal should be allowed.

country, House study says
WASHINGTON - The Lebanese army, assigned a key role by the Reagan
administration in maintaining anti-terrorist security after Israeli and other
foreign forces withdraw, exists largely on paper and won't be able to police
the country effectively for two years according to a congressional study.
Morale is low, the people distrust the army, and nearly half the 20,000-man
force is "at home" or otherwise inactive, said the report prepared for the
House Foreigh Affairs Committee. The panel begins consideration today of
the administration's request for $251 million in military and economic aid to
Lebanon.
Efforts to recruit Christian soldiers in recent months have been largely
unsuccessful and "bitter militia fighting has left a deep sense of distrust
which will be hard to overcome," said the study by the Foreign Affairs and
National Defense Division of the Library of Congress.
"The army is in very poor condition after the long civil war and exists
mostly on paper at the present time," the report said.

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press international reports
Economy grows in first quarter
WASHINGTON-The economy likely will notch 4 percent growth in the first
quarter, the best spurt in two years and compelling evidence that recovery is
Under way, a government report showed yesterday.
President Reagan cited the news as a promise of a "long and strong"
rebound from the worst recession since World War II. Other administration
officials were equally optimistic.
Private economists were far more cautious about the prospects for a
robust and durable upturn that would put jobless Americans back to work.
They said the recovery could be shattered unless interest rates decline fur-
ther.
The Commerce Department's so-called 'flash" report, a crude,
preliminary estimate of economic activity, showed inflation-adjusted gross
national product expanding at an annual rate of 4 percent during the first
three months of this year.
Treasury Secretary Donald Regan, who misread the deep recession a year
ago by forecasting the economy "would come roaring back in the spring,"
said with a smile. "If one listens closely, one can almost hear a roar."

Top Court refuses retrial
in 'Scarsdale diet murder
WASHINGTON - Jean Harris, convicted of murdering'Dr. Herman Tar-
nower, founder of the "Scarsdale diet," failed yesterday to convince the
Supreme Court to give her another chance to prove she was denied a fair
trial.
Mr. Harris was found guilty Feb. 24, 1981 of shooting Tarnower, 69, author
of the best-selling "Scarsdale Diet" book during a struggle in the doctor's
bedroom almost a year earlier.
The justices, without explanation, turned aside her argument that the
"media extravaganza...beyond the vocabulary of exaggeration" denied her
.a fair trial. She also had claimed some evidence was gained improperly.
Banner headlines and extensive news accounts laden with references to
Mrs. Harris' tenure as headmistress at the exclusive Madeira School for
Girls in Virginia described the shooting as the act of a woman scorned.
Wind caused July jet crash
WASHINGTON - Federal investigators said yesterday that a vicious
downdraft - or "mieroburst" - slammed a Pan American 727 jetliner into
the ground near New Orleans last summer, killing 153 people.
The National Transportation Safety Board said the powerful wind shear
hit the aircraft just seconds after it lifted off in a thunderstorm last July 9,
and with precious little warning to the pilot.
Pan American World Airways flight 759 reached an altitude of no more
than 150 feet and was airborne only 29 seconds before it plunged into a
residential area and burst into flames. All 145 people aboard and eight on the
ground were killed.
Among its recommendations, the safety board urged airlines to increase
pilot training on how to deal with such phenomena and urged the Federal
Aviation Administration to hasten developmeht of better shear detection
equipment.
The board said the pilot acted reasonably in deciding to take off despite in-
dications of severe weather. But it declared that the failure of equipment to
adequately detect wind shears was a contributing factor in the crash.
Japanese protest arrival of
U.S. nuclear powered ship
SASEBO, Japan - Thousands of snake-dancing demonstrators protested
the arrival of the nuclear-powered U.S. aircraft carrier Enterprise in Japan
yesterday.
Red paint was splashed on the flattop's hull from one of about 30 small
boats filled with people shouting slogans against nuclear arms. Another
boatload, however, waved a banner welcoming the Enterprise and played
U.S. Navy songs.
Except for several brief scuffles with police, the protests were peaceful
and the 75,700-ton carrier, accompanied by the guided missle cruiser Bain-
bridge and three other ships, entered Sasebo on schedule.
The ships will be at the U.S. Navy base here through Friday to give their
crews of more than 6,000 rest and recreation after participation in the U.S.-
South Korean joint maneuver "Team Spirit '83."
Authorities said they arrested six people aboard a fishing boat for
throwing smoke bombs at Japanese patrol boats and injuring one Maritime
Safety Agency crewman. But before they were apprehended they managed
to slip by the patrol boats and splash red paint on the hull of the giant carrier.
