What goes on
in Senior.'s lab

Thomas Senior, professor of electrical
and chemical engineering, still remains
the focus of much of the protests again-
st military research on campus.
Ever since the issues of Pentagon-
sponsored research resurfaced at the
University two years ago, the British-
born engineer has maintained that his
interest is in the civilian applications of
his work, even though he must rely on
the military to fund his projects.
spokesmen, who were interviewed by
the Daily in 1982, Senior's work would
contribute to Stealth technology, which
is trying to develop airplanes and
missiles that are invisible to radar.
Senior has acknowledged that his work
could be applied to such technology, but
that he doesn't know anything about it.
He contends that the Air Force supports
his research on "electromagnetic scat-
tering" on the slight chance that it may
one day contribute to military pur-
poses, but that his work has more im-
portant civilian applications. He says
the research is applicable to non-military
purposes such as reducing interference
in airport or police radar.
Another Senior project involves the
testing of hobby-shop models of Air
Force jet fighters and bombers to
measure the impact of "elec-
tromagnetic impulses" on the equip-
ment inside.
Those electromagnetic impulses
could mean nuclear explosions - as the
protestors contend - or lightning - as
Senior contends. As 1979 "Statement of
Work" submitted to the Air Force on a
project that has continued for several
years specifically mentions the utility
of this work in predicting the impact of
"a high altitude nuclear detonation" on
an aircraft.
Senior has argued that military
language is written into statements in
order to satisfy Congress, which

requires the Pentagon to support
research that is close to its military
Furthermore, he adds, if the research
really did apply to Stealth technology or
nuclear weapons, it would have
classified status, as opposed to non-
classified. As it stands, the Soviets and
the Chinese have as much access to his
work as the Pentagon, he says.
Senior and other professors who work
for the military say the Pentagon pays
for basic research on campus in order
to assure the nation maintains a
technical proficiency. They say that
the government has geared most of the
research money for certain technical
fields away from agencies such as the
National Science Foundation and
toward the Pentagon.

side the windows of Senior's laboratory.
They spent several minutes chanting
there before moving inside the building
to the hallway past the laboratory.
The protesters chanted throughout the
rally, with such slogans as "One, two,
three, four, we don't want a nuclear
war; five, six, seven, eight, we don't
want to radiate," and Hey, hey, ho, ho
the DOD has got to go."
Those who attended the rally said
they thought the afternoon'srsit-in and
the accompanying demonstration
would have an impact on military
research on campus.
"HOPEFULLY, (the sit-in) will get
people to seriously reconsider what
(the researchers) are doing," said
protester Joel Kaufman, a first year
medical student.

Michigan Student Assembly
President Mary Rowland said that she
hoped the sit-in will raise the awareness
of the community. "I think it'll keep the
issue alive. I'm hoping in addition that
it will raise the consciousness of more
students who haven't been active in
(the fight against military research)
before," she said.
"I really support what they're doing
and I like to do my part," said MSA
Vice President Jono Soglin, who also at-
tended the rally.
PSN members will hold a military
research teach-in tonight, led by for-
mer MSA researcher Roger Kerson,
who explored military research on
campus for the assembly last year.
The teach-in will be followed by a
candlelight vigil at University
President Harold Shapiro's home at 10
p. M.

,students seize research lab

(Continued from Page 1)-
Bauer tried to enter the lab through the
back door, but PSN members had
blocked it with a screwdriver.
"Should I lose my job because there's
too much interference with my work I'll
be very upset," Bauer said.
At 5:30 p.m. Security Director Walt
Stevens and three security officers
walked over students, desks and lab
equipment to enter the room, pushing
aside protesters and onlookers.
"You can stay here as long as you
like" Stevens said to the crowd. After
asking the demonstrators if they wan-
ted anything, the crowd chanted back:
"Shut it down," referring to defense-
department research.
Two graduate students were conduc-
ting experiments when PSN members
entered the lab.
Stevens said the security guards were
posted in the lab to protect equipment.
Also, two graduate students who were
conducting experiments when PSN
members entered were directed by
Senior to remain in the lab to watch
over the equipment.
Though PSN members said there was
a "strong possibility" some of them
would be arrested, Stevens said it was

Three robbed
at gunpoint
Three Ann Arobr residents were robbed
at gunpoint early yesterday morning in
their home on the 900 block of South
Division. Two males in their twenties
forced their way into the house when
one of the victims, a 20-year-old man,
answered their knock at the door at
2:15 a.m. One suspect carried a long
gun, possible a rifle, and the other was
carrying a hunting knife, Ann Arbor
police said.
The suspects then ripped the cord out
of the telephone, and asked the man
who answered the door to give them

equipment. I don't think anybody wan-
ts to do anything to the people who have
a cause."
During the vigil, PSN members kept
in contact with the outside by using
walkie-talkies and a telephone in the
lab office. The office was locked at
about 6:15, cutting off phone use.
Security officials did allow students to
leave the lab to use the bathroom.
Four security guards were placed in
the lab for the night; three were
positioned in the hallway.
PSN has been the most visible op-
ponent of military research on campus
since the group's formation last year.
Last April, the group staged a 24-hour
sit-in at the office of Vice President for
Academic Affairs and Provost Billy
Frye, the University's top budget of-
"I WAS REALLY nervous "
Winkelman said of the plans to stage
yesterday's takeover. "This morning
when I was packing up I sort :f freaked
out, but once we were in it was fine ... I
know what we're doing is right."
PSN members insisted the research
has military applications. "They have
to use lightning because they are not
allowed to test any nuclear weapons
above ground," said PSN member
Susan Povich.
