AUSTIN, Texas - Fourteen love
poems by novelist William Faulkner,
whose refusal to pay a subsidy to a
publisher kept the works hidden for 60
years, have been found in an attic and
will be published this spring.
The book, to be titled Visions in
Spring, will be released May 26 and is
described by its publisher, the
University, of Texas Press, as a.
"haunting" and "lyrical" work that
addresses loneliness, desireandkother
"basic human emotions.''
THE POEMS marked the transition
of the Nobel Prize-winning author
from poet to novelist and was his last
major work of poetry before
publishiing his first novel, Soldier's
Faulkner, best known for novels
like Absalom, Absalom! and The
Sound and the Fury, bound the poetry
by hand and presented the 88-page
volume in the early 1920s to his future
wife, Estelle Franklin, while she still
was married to her first husband.
"This collection of poetry was the
first book-length work that Faulkner
had ever submitted for publication,"
Vicki Woodruff of UT Press said
yesterday. "But it never made it into
publication because Faulkner balked
at paying a subsidy the publisher
wanted in order to get the poems into
Although Literary historians were
aware the works existed, the original
apparently was lost.

Judith Sensibar, received permission
from the author's daughter, Jill
Faulkner Summers, in 1979 to search
through the attic in the family home in
Charlottesville, Va., for the elusive

tified gunmen critically wounded a
French diplomat as he walked to work
yesterday, pumping five bullets into the
head and body of cultural secretary
Sauveur Gliozzio from a passing car.
While Gliozzio fought for his life at
the American University Hospital,
rival militias shelled residential neigh-
borhoods on either side of the "Green
Line" separating Moslem- west from
Christian east Beirut.
POLICE reported a 5-year-old girl
had been killed and 29 people wounded
in the shelling, the latest violation of a
tenuous cease-fire arranged this month
in Lausanne, Switzerland. At least 10
people were killed and 53 wounded in
similar violations Monday.
French and police sources said Glioz-
zio was just two blocks from the heavily
fortified French Embassy in west
Beirut when he was shot at close range
by three men in a car.
The sources said they believed the
gunmen had first followed the diplomat

American University Hospital, only a

emergency surgery which lasted three
hours. He was hit in the head, stomach,

Study says youth
WASHINGTON (AP) - American
high school students have forsworn
most political protests, tempered their
obsession with moneymaking and
careers, and are "probably more
closely aligned with their parents than
they have been in 30 years," a survey of
youth attitudes contended yesterday.
"If there washa generation gap in the
'60s, it narrowed to a crack in the '70s.
It's barely a hairline in the '80s," said
Janis Cromer, author of the study en-
titled "The Mood of American Youth,"
prepared for the National Association
of Secondary School Principals.
CROMER, director of com-
munications for the District of Colum-
bia Public Schools, was author of a
similar survey of student attitudes in
In eight areas - drugs, education,
work, politics, choice of friends,
religion, sex and dress styles - a
majority of students said they agreed
with their parents' views, her report
"While significant numbers of
today's students say their parents are
'old-fashioned' or 'too strict,' when it
comes to more substantive issues such,
as politics, sex, drugs, religion and
,careers, young people appear to have
increasingly adopted the views of their
parents," the survey concluded.
The students said the most important
problems facing America were unem-
ployment, inflation and violent crime.
In 1974, at a time when the Watergate
scandal was reaching a climax, the top
domestic problems were listed as
politics and the environment. That year
only 4 percent of high school students
said violent crime was a problem.
The biggest challenges facing the
world are nuclear disaster, the threat of
World War III and poverty, the students
"IN THE 60's, students were charac-
terized as having long hair. They were
involved in protests. They mistrusted
anyone over 30," Cromer said. "In the
'70s they were described as the 'me'
generation," were preoccupied with
careers and making money and "had a
strong aversion to politics."
The report, commenting on how
today's students differ from their
predecessors, said that "unlike the
more vocal youth of 20 years ago,
issuing a hue and cry over public issues
is seemingly not part of today's student

THE REJECTION -Only the eighth
since the Classified Research Review
Panel was formed in 1972 - sent the
proposals to another committee which
rarely takes part in decisions on
classified projects. In an 8-4 vote on
March 9, the Research Policies Com-
mittee decided the projects did not
violate the guidelines.
"I made the decision based on my
own judgement but the committee's
endorsement was a permanent con-
sideration," Sussman said yesterday.
Freedman, who resigned from the
classified panel after the March 9 vote,
said Birdsall's work could help put the
United States in a first strike position in
a nuclear war. With the aid of research
like Birdsall's, Freedman said the
United States will be able to pinpoint
the location of Soviet submarines, while
keeping its own fleet relatively hidden.
THE U.S. EDGE in submarine
technology would lessen America's
vulnerability to a Soviet attack, and
might induce it to strike first, she ex-
plained in a paper after she opposed the
Birdsall has maintained that his
research can be used to track sub-
marines, but has civilian uses as well.
In February, the Progressive Student
Network attempted a sit-in at Birdsall's
North Campus laboratory, which failed
when University security officials lear-
ned of the plan beforehand.
Afterward, Birdsall said his projects
can be used not only by the Pentagon,
but also by the Weather Service and
fishermen. "But none of the others are
willing to pay for it," he said.
