No details of Murphy's talks

Nahar reported yesterday that Mur-

Sovets mai U.S. tank designs to student
MILFORD, Mich. (AP) - The FBI said yesterday
it is investigating how microfilmed information about
U.S. tanks got into a package that the Soviet Mission
to the United States sent to a high school student who
requested material for a class project.
The microfilmed specifications, all unclassified,
were in a damaged package received by Christopher
Foley, a junior at Milford High who discovered the
film's contents on a microfilm machine at the school
FOLEY, THE son of Milford Township Supervisor
Robert Foley, had sent away for information from
the Soviet Mission at the United Nations as part of a
project on international relations.
"We have no conclusive theory" on how the
ficrofilm got into the package, said FBI
spokesman John Anthony in Detroit.
"That's not from our mission. That's absolutely im-
possible," Ludmila Delyaeva, public relations officer
for the Soviet Mission, said yesterday.
"I MYSELF sent (thepackage) and I know I never
sent microfilm," she said, laughing. "We sent
brochures, books and magazines."
Anthony said the microfilm was clipped to com-
puter cards found in the retaped package received by
Foley at his Oakland County home on Sept. 17.
"Also included were 42 cards pertaining to un-
classified M-60 tanks in connection with
a bid on a contract for work to be performed on
turrets on tanks" for 1960-1981 models, said Anthony.
"THEY WERE not plans," he said. "They were
something any contractor wanting to bid on a job

could have fouled up and

Anthony said it was possible the cards and
microfilm had been in another package and
"comingled" with the contents of the damaged Soviet
He said FBI agents had learned that at about the
same time the package was being sent to Foley, the
Army had sent out 42-card packets to various con-
tractors in the United States for bids.
"THE OUTGOING 42 cards and the incoming mail
may have crossed paths in the same U.S. Postal
Department," somewhere along the route, Anthony
"Or it could have been sent by the Soviet Mission it-
self inadvertently," said Anthony. "Someone at the
mission could have fouled up and accidentally placed
it in the package to the kid ... There are a couple of
other possibilities I'd rather not deal with. We are
Teacher William Floyd said Foley "brought his
package in, he showed it to me and he said 'there's
something unusual.' "
"I told the student to go to the library to use the
microfilm machine to see what was in it," he said.
"He came back and said the information contained
specifications on American tanks. I said the FBI
should be contacted."
Foley's parents have requested that school officials
not allow the youth to be interviewed, said Diane
Rancont, Huron Valley School' District
"Really, I am not going to comment on it," the
elder Foley said.
"It's under investigation. I'm getting calls from all
over the country."
LANSING (UPI) - For many voters
this Nov. 6, faced with-an array of vir-
tually unknown candidates for state
education boards, the biggest issue
may be how these people got on the
ballot in the first place.
All 16 candidates for the eight-year
terms on boards governing Michigan
State University, the University of
Michigan, Wayne State University and
the State Board of Education were
nominated by their respective party
conventions. But at that point the
similarity between the two parties
The Republicans allowed many a rip-
ple to mar the smooth waters of their
convention, easily approving their
nominees with few disagreements.
For the Democrats, however,
seemingly no convention would be
satisfactory without a fight. And that is
what happened, although most of the
fireworks took place away from the
Democrats currently control all four
The Democrats, at the urging of a
large contingent of union delegates at
their convention, ousted two incumbent
board members, University regent Gerald
Dunn, on the Board for 6 years, and
MSU Trustee Blanche Martin, first
elected in 1969. Dunn was replaced by
Marjorie Lansing, an Eastern
Michigan University political science
professor, and Martin's spot on the
ticket was given to Charles Vincent, a
Democrats for a while toyed with the
potentially explosive idea of replacing
Dunn, a lobbyist for the Metropolitan
Association for Improve School

The United Auto Workers were repor,

William Fitzgerald sparked a bitter

UClub cited with second
liquor sales violation

"RECEIVING a second violation is of
great concern to us," said Education
Prof. Charles Lehmann, president of
the U-Club Board of Directors. "Ob-
viously (the Liquor Control Com-
mission) isn't pleased and neither are
we. Obviously we don't want a third
The employee who served the liquor
control officer the drink which resulted
in the second violation was fired. The
U-Club has also instituted a new mem-
bers only admittance rule.
The U-Club has 20 days from the date
each citation was mailed to respond. If
club officials do not respond to the
citations, liquor control officers will
schedule a hearing for the club.
The club will probably acknowledge
that the offenses occured and explain
why. In this case, the Liquor Control
Commission would issue penalties
without a hearing.
University officials also met with
liquor control officers this week to iron
out problems and get suggestions on
how to enforce the club's license.
In an effort to make sure no more
violations occur, Keck said the Liquor
Control Commission will continue to
make checks on the U-Club. "Some day
we'll amble in there and try to buy a
drink," Keck said.
