Adelman confirmed as

someone who can just get by, but the
very finest negotiating team we can
possibly assemble. Unless we put for-
ward our best effort, our best team, this
may be our last hope for mankind."
Sen. Gary Hart (D-Colo.) said
Adelman "appears to be more
dedicated to an arms buildup than to
reducing the hazards of unrestricted
competition." His nomination by
Reagan, said Hart, "signifies a serious.
lack of concern for the efficacy of arms
control negotiation."
Sen. Ernest Hollings (D-S.C.) did not
take part in the floor debate but voted
against the nomination.
CRANSTON and Hart are announced
candidates for the 1984 Democratic

presidential nomination. Glenn and
Hollings are expected to enter the race
shortly.
Sen.Charles Percy (R-Ill.), chair-
man of the SenateForeign Relations
Committee who led the fight for the
nomination, saying Adelman's confir-
mation would "vigorously move the
Reagan administration toward arms
control agreements that can win the
approval of the Senate."
Vice President George Bush, who as
president of the Senate was empowered
to cast a tie-breaking vote, presided
over yesterday's climactic roll call but
his vote was not needed.
Assistant GOP Leader Ted Stevens of
Alaska said he had asked Bush to be
present "just in case."

By GEORGEA KOVANIS
The chairperson of the University's
top budget committee yesterday defen-
ded her panel's practice of holding all
meetings behind closed doors.
Mary Ann Swain, chairwoman of the
Budget Priorities Committee, told a
small crowd at the final session of
Campus Meet the Press that the closed
sessions are necessary because com-
mittee members discuss personnel
matters and the University's budget.
"I THINK it's important to allow
BPC members to argue vociferously,"
and in private, she said.
But the closed sessions should not af-
fect open communication between the
committee and the rest of the Univer-
sity community, Swain said.
"There needs to be more dialogue on
these issues (the review process),"
Swain said.
IN DEFENDING the closed session,
Swain pointed out that her committee's
primary role is that of an advisory

reetings
board. Regents and the administration
are not obligated to follow through on
the committee's recommendations.
But\the group still plays an integral
role in the University's financial
redirection, she said.
Swain predicted that the review
process, which has been referred to as
the "five-year plan," will probably take
longer than five years to complete.
Swain said the committee's concerns
extend beyond purely financial mat-
ters. "I think the committee is very
concerned about issues of tenure," she
said, adding that committee members
have influence at the administrative
level. "I don't think that the staff or Dr.
(Billy) Frye are any more influential
than committee members," she said.

Profs criticize
research guideli~nes

(Continued from Page 1)
To Nicholls, the proposed guidelines
are "not needed and way off base."
Nicholls and other researchers feel the
guidelines infringe on their academic
freedom.
George Haddad, chairman of the
electrical and computer engineering
department, called the guidelines an
attempt to "legislate morality."
HADDAD, WHO recently completed
a project for the Navy to improve
missile guidance systems, said, "I still
feel the best way is to trust individual
faculty members . . . as long as the
research is open."
But campus critics of defense depar-
tment-sponsored projects say non-
classified research is neither innocent
of weapons applications nor totally
open.
"They say it's open, but then when
you scrutinize it they hit the roof. They
say you're not a scientist or anything,"
said Roger Kerson, hired by MSA in
September to investigate Pentagon
sponsored research.
KERSON THINKS the proposed
guidelines will have a significant im-
pact. "I think the effect of what we've
done is that things are not as likely to
slide through," he said.
But Kerson and others said they are
not happy with the faculty's decision to
have each school, college, and depar-
tment enforce the guidelines. They say
University - wide enforcement
would be better because it would have
no vested interests.
Although the faculty did call for some
sort of committee to watch over the
procedure, graduate student Ben
Davis, a member of the Research
Policies Committee, which recommen-
ded the guidelines, said, "The way it is
set up it is not clear. . . how a project
would be rejected."
VICE-PRESIDENT for Research
Charles Overberger said the executive
officers have been talking with school
deans and department heads about the
proposed guidelines, but he did not
know when a decision will be reached
on methods to police them. Although
the faculty vote asked for each school
and department to come up with a way
to enforce the guidelines, specifics will
be up to the University's executive officers.
Overberger said he did not know
whether the final decision will be made
by the executive officers of taken to the
Regents.
LSA senior Tom Marx, another
member of the committee, said the
purpose of the guidelines is not so much
to stop projects currently underway,
but to cause researchers to think twice
about submitting questionable projects
in the first place.
"I THINK we've already had an ef-
fect in that professors know that if they
were doing a project that would blatan-
tly violate ethics, we would know,"
Marx said.
In support of his view, Marx points to
1972, the year the University adopted
guidelines restricting classified resear-
ch. In 1972, classified research accoun-
ted for about 57 percent of the defense
department's expenditures on campus,
a figure which has fallen to about six
percent.

divestiture of its labs in Willow Run,
now the Environmental Research In-
stitute in Michigan. No classified
projects have been rejected by the
University since the guidelines were
adopted.
THE RESEARCHERS who have
been singled out by Marx and Kerson
said they probably will not be affected
by the new guidelines.,
Philip Jackson, a research scientist
in the geological sciences department,
does work on mapping terrain with
radar.
This type of research is used for
mapping such places as the Amazon
River Basin or the cloud-covered coast
of Alaska. Critics charge it is the same
type of technology used to guide cruise
missiles.
"I WOULD be foolish to say (the
research) couldn't be used for guidance
or a reconnaissance plane," Jackson
said, but added that he would have put
in the same proposal under the
proposed guidelines.
"I FEEL there's little technology
that can be done that isn't applicable to
the military," he said.
Engineering Prof. Thomas Senior,
who receives one of the largest propor-
tions of military funds on campus, said
'if the guidelines are adopted, "I will be
a little more sensitive to the concerns of
others," but said his paramount con-
cern lies with more than a dozen
graduate students whom his research
supports.
DAVIS AGREED that the example of
the classified guidelines showed they
were not a "significant deterrent." But
he said the fight for restrictions has
educated people who were formerly in-
different.
"The point is that two years ago
military research was not much of an
issue ... People didn't know what was
going on and they were not interested
and there were no guidelines," he said.
"With all the feelings against
military research. . . politics comes in
very strongly. Some people just get all
upset when you talk about the Depar-
tment of Defense," Nicholls said.
Like Senior, Nicholls said his
primary responsibility is to his studen-
ts, but "if in addition I can help the
Department of Defense, that's icing on
the cake," he said.
