Gamota: Research is underused

The United States does not use the results of
academic research as well as it should, said George
Gamota, director of the University's .Institute of
Science and Technology (IST).
Speaking yesterday at Campus Meet the Press in
the Michigan Union, Gamota said Japan has sur-
passed the United States technologically by applying
research findings. The Japanese take the basic
research of American universities and apply it to
technological problems, while in the United States
much of this same research is completed and then
"put on the shelf," Gamota said.
HE STRESSED the need for relationships between

university researchers and private corporations to
encourage the application of research.
"Universities, because of their research faculties,
are a wealth of ideas, tremendous potential,"
Gamota said.
He said copperation between universities and cor-
porations is valuable, but that "there are pitfalls".
One problem is that corporations which sponsor
research projects usually want exclusive rights to the
results of these projects and will not let the Univer-
sity release them publicly.
Gamota said it is inappropriate for the University
to do research for the sole benefit of one corporation.

"The University does not do research which is not
ultimately published," he said.
Gamota said he did not think that the University's
reputation for student activism, illustrated most
recently by the blockading of an engineering
laboratory last March, would be an inhibitory factor
in its competition for Defense Department dollars.
He also said that passage of the Nuclear Free Zone
proposal, intended to ban the testing, design, resear-
ch and development of nuclear weapons in Ann Ar-
bor, would have very little affect on IST projects.
Most of IST's research does not have direct military
application, he said.

(AP) - More than 70,000 children in
four black townships boycotted their
schools yesterday after the army and
police raided their communities and
conducted a house-to-house search for
riot instigators.
Those townships south of Johan-
nesburg were quiet, police reported,
but they said rioting flared in other
townships east and west of Johan-
nesburg, and east of Cape Province.
Two people were injured and 14 rioters
were arrested, and an unspecified
number of buildings were set afire, said
police Lt. J. L. Barnard at national
headquarters in Pretoria.

~o boycott ed
Police and South African Press
Association said the rioting broke out in
Katlehong, Tembisa, and Kwathema
townships east of the capital; in town-
ships on the fringes of northern Soweto
township, and in New Brighton and
Kwazenkele in the eastern Cape
Province near Port Elizabeth on theIn-
dian Ocean.
The township sweep was the largest
police-army operation since the riots
began in late August, when the white
government established separate
houses in Parliament for Asian and
mixed race minorities but left the black
majority with no representation.

Top military chief cited f or
conspiracy to assassinate Aqu1ino
MANILA, Philippines - A civilian investigatory board yesterday accused
armed forces chief Gen. Fabian Ver of complicity in the assassination of.
Benigno Aquino, and Ver temporarily stepped down. Opposition leaders
called for President Ferdinand Marcos to resign.
Marcos accepted the request of his most trusted and powerful military of-
ficer for a leave of absence, but supported Ver's claim of innocence of in-
volvement in the Aug. 21, 1983, killing of the opposition leader and Rolando
Galman, the man the military said shot Aquino.
The board, in a 457-page report, claimed Aquino and Galman were killed in
a military conspiracy involving Ver, two other generals, two colonels, three
captains,17 other soldiers, and one civilian.
The panel members, who presented their report to President Ferdinand
Marcos of the presidential palance yesterday after a year of testimony,
recommended that all involved be immediately indicted and tried.
It called the alleged plot "an act of tragic responsibility inspired by ab-.
solute power."~
Policeman arrested in Warsaw in
connecion with priest's abduction,
WARSAW, Poland - A Warsaw policeman was arrested yesterday in con-
nection with the kidnapping of a pro-Solidarity priest, the state television
He was placed under arrest for "willfully absenting himself from his job"
and failing to provide an adequate abibi for missing work last Friday, the
day the. Rev. Jerry Popieluszko of Warsaw was abducted, the report said.
The policeman was identified only as Grzegorz P. The official Polish new
agency PAP said he was a functionary of the Interior Ministry, which con-
trols Poland's police force and internal security service.
According to the television report, he was among several drivers of cars,
similar to the one believed used by the priest's kidnapper who had been:
questioned about the abduction.
The arrest was the first in connection with the abduction of the priest on a.
highway in northern Poland last Friday night. One of the abductors was:
dressed in a police uniform, according to official reports and the testimony
of the priest's driver.
Earlier yesterday, Solidarity leader Lech Walesa and the outlawed union's
underground leadership said Poland's Communist authorities bear respon-
sibility for the kidnapping of a pro-Solidarity priest.

GARZA SAID the group was unique
because although "it is not a new thing
for law students to be involved in
politics, it is a new phenomenon to work
among themselves.,,
At Harvard University, the group has
encountered a "pretty favorable"
response according to Doug Hagerman,
who became involved with the group
because of his work for the Mon-
dale/Ferraro ticket.
Hagerman sees it as an "opportunity
for students of law who understand that
a second Reagan administration would
not be beneficial to do something about
it. Our aims are twofold: One, to in-
crease the level of support at various
schools for Mondale/Ferraro and
against Reagan; Second, we want to
transform grass roots support to a
media event ... to counter the negative
press in terms of college students
becoming Reagan supporters,"
Hagerman said. "That's just not so."
Professor Alexander Aleinikoff of the
University of Michigan Law School also
believes the group can be an effective
force. According to Aleinikoff, who
supports the coalition, "One of the sur-
prising things in recent polls is the
number of young people voting with the
President . . . since their interests lie
with Democrats. A student group
talking to students about the election
will probably be more effective than

Student attacked
A 20-year-old University student was
attacked Tuesday at 6:35 p.m. while
walking in Nichols Arboretum, accor-
ding to Ann Arbor Police Sgt. Jan
The woman was walking in the lower
part of the Arb when a man approached
and began to talk to her. The man then
grabbed the woman's arms and pushed
her to the ground, Suomala said.
The woman began to scream, and the
man told her to be quiet and that he had
a knife. The woman continued to
scream, and began to fight the at-
tacker, Suomala said.
Upon hearing the screams, a jogger
ran to the scene and chased the subject
out of the Arb.
The woman sustained minor injuries
to her face.

9 Americans die in hotel fire
BAGUIO, Philippine, - Firemen yesterday retrieved the bodies of more:
victims of a blaze that swept through a luxury hotel and killed 17 people, nine;
of them Americans visiting for the 40th anniversary of Gen. Douglas MacAr-
thur's return to the Philippines.
At least 51 people, including 36 members of the American Legion tour,
were injured in the blaze that gutted the wood-frame, four-story Pines Hotel
in the hillside tourist resort of Baguio, 125 miles north of Manila.
"The Americans have all been accounted for," said Maj. Barry Glickman,
a spokesman at the Clark U.S. Air Force base, where the injured Americans,
- many of them elderly and infirm - and unhurt tour members were airlif-
The conditionis of the other injured, some of whom were hospitalized in the
Baguio area, were not known.
The fire erupted around 11:30 p.m. Tuesday and burned through the night.
Officials estimated some 330 guests were inside the 423-room hotel at the
time, including the U.S. Group and a 110-member Asian women's delegation.;
Scientists will revive embryos.
SYDNEY, Australia - The two frozen embryos left by a dead American:
couple will go anonymously to prospective adoptive parents, the Victoria
state attorney general said yesterday.
Attorney General Jim Kennan said the parents will not be Americans,
even though many women from the United States have volunteered to
become the embryos' mother.
Scientists repeated yesterday that they doubted the embryos - which
were frozen in 1981 when the freezing techniques were being developed -;
would survive thawing. But scientists promised to make every effort to thaw
the embryos and implant them in a surrogate mother.
Kennan said even if the embryos survive and are born, it was unlikely any
resulting children would have any claim on the estate of Mario an~d Elsa
Rios, the Los Angeles couple who had the embryos created.
The legislation blocking the embryos' destruction also clears the way for
their adoption, and Kennan said this would mean the children would be con-
sidered solely the offspring of their adoptive parents.
GM-UAW impasse broken
TORONTO - An impasse that stalled talks between striking United Auto
Workers and General Motors Corp's Canadian subsidiary was broken last
night, raising hopes of an early settlement, a union leader said.
"It's fair to describe it an a breakthrough in terms of getting the talks star-
ted," UAW leader Robert White told a news conference. "We have tran-
sformed the mood from pessimism to very cautious optimism," White said.
The weeklong strike by 36,000 GM workers in Canada already has forced
layoffs of 21,885 U.S. workers at 18 plants in six states, with the effect expec-;
ted to escalate quickly.
White said much work remained to be done before a final settlement would
be reached, and an aide said the talks could not be concluded Friday.
