yesterday to portray the weekend U.S. air strike in

escalation of the conflict, and urged the Soviet Union
to encourage restraint by Syria.
He said in Washington that the use of U.S. airpower
did not foreshadow an American effort to mipose a
military solution in Lebanon, and called on the Soviet
Union to use its influence with Syria to moderate that
country's policies.

The U.S. Supreme Court yesterday

The court will examine a ruling by a
federal judge in Minnesota who last

not met the legal obligation to register.
Six University of Minnesota students

the ruling by U.S. District Judge
Donald Alsop.
Alsop wrote that the law was uncon-

and assesses punishment without first
allowing for a trial.

draft registration case

A federal district judge in Detroit,
e hearing the case of a University student
indicted for failing to register for the
draft, has decided to delay action pen-'
ding further review of documents which
have been turned over by the White
House and other government agencies
involved in the case.
The decision, which Judge Phillip
Pratt expressed to attorneys Friday,
follows a ruling last month by a panel of
district judges in Cleveland to overturn

the conviction of a Cleveland man ac-
cused of failing to register with Selec-
tive Service.
ATTORNEYS for the University
graduate student, Dan Rutt, say both
the Cleveland decision and ruling in the
Rutt case are partial victories. The at-
torneys had asked the judge to seek the
governments documents, saying they
would help prove their contention that

Faculty panel pursues
U'research conference

The University moved a step closer to
sponsoring a major conference on
' academic freedom and military
research yesterday when a top faculty
governing committee decided to pursue
the proposed forum.
The Senate Advisory Committee on
University Affairs (SACUA) acted on a
request made by medical school Prof.
David Bassett at last month's faculty
Senate Assembly meeting that such a
conference be held here at the Univer-
BASSETT proposed the conference
i response to concerns over Pentagon-
sponsored research on campus and to
the regents' rejection of guidelines for
non-classifed researdh last June.
The guidelines, proposed by the
Assembly's Research Policy Commit-
tee, would have prohibited research
that has "substantial purpose...to
destroy or permanqptly incapacitate

human beings."
Many SACUA members shared
Bassett's concern that the University
has not dealt sufficiently with the issue
of military research.
"IT'S SOMETHING we need to talk
about," said Nursing School Prof.
Cheryl Easley. "All sides need to be
Most SACUA members said that
while they realized a conference might
not convince the regents to reverse
their decision about the research
guidelines, an international forum on
the issue might 'serve an educational

educational thrust to it," said Medical
School Prof. Alphonse Burdi, another
SACUA member.
;ARE THE. REGENTS going td be

feeling that the regents' rejection of the

was more of a gut reaction from them,"
Burdi said. "But that doesn't mean
they're going to change their minds if
we have the conference."
SACUA chairman Herbert
Hildebrandt, a busiress school
professor, said that there was "over-
whelming support (from SACUA) for
further investigation into whether a
conference should be held." He said
SACUA's next move will be to bring the
issue to the Collegiate Institute on
Values in Science (CIVS).
CIVS is an organization of professors
at the University who meet once a mon-
th to discuss ethical issues in science.
The current membership totals about
50 professors. Two SACUA members,
