'U' official to study transp
The Michigan Daily - Friday, January 25, 1985 - Page 5
By DOV COHEN
A University Hospitals official named yesterday to a
federal task force on organ transplants said his main goal is
not to further the hospitals' transplant program.
The University recently announced its bid to become the
state's official organ transplant center.
JEPTHA DALSTON, executive director of the hospitals, said
his primary reason for working with the task force was to
examine "a major societal issue of our time."
"There are a host of unsettled issues in front of us," Dalston
said. "How many (transplants) can we afford? What are the
criteria for recipients? Should the donors be reimbursed?
What are the ethical and moral considerations?"
Dalston said he doubted his new position would help the
University in its bid to become the state transplant center.
"IT'S IMPORTANT that we be right at the point of policy
formulation at the national level, so it can be integrated in
the state of Michigan," Dalston said.
"I will be acting in a liason role (by) bringing information
back to the University and taking our views back to
Washington," he said.
The purpose of the task force, set up by the Organ
Procurement and Transplant Act last October, is to "conduct
a comprehensive examination of medical, legal, ethical,
economical, and social issues presented by human organ
procurement and transplantation," said University
Hospitals spokesman Rick Bossard.
Dalston was chosen for the 21-member task force after
giving his name to Rep. Carl Pursell (D-Mich.), who then
nominated him, Bossard said.
"He was chosen because of his interest and professional
accomplishments and insight into health care financing,"
George Zuidema, vice provost for medical affairs, said he
was "very supportive of (the nomination) and delighted
about it" in a statement released yesterday.

PSN members found guilty of trespassing
(Continued from Page 1)
The demonstrators face a maximum
sentence of 30 days in jail and a $50 fine.
Elden will announce the sentence Feb.
After the trial, the defendants said
they had no regrets because they were
given an opportunity to express their
views about military research.
ERHARD KOCK, father of one of the
demonstrators, said he supported his
"I'm proud of what she did, that she
had the courage to do this," he said.
"When you take a stand for something
you can have no regrets. She won't have
regrets, I won't have regrets."
Courtroom 1 of the 15th District Court
was packed with supporters of the
demonstrators. Tom Marx, one of the
defendants in this case whose trial date
has not been set, said most of the sup-
porters were members of the PSN.
ONLY THREE OF the 11 demon-
strators arrested were tried yesterday.
A pre-trial date for the others has been
set for Jan. 24.
PRIOR TO the entrance of the jury, a
University attorney asked Elden to
quash a subpoena issued by the defense
ordering University President Harold
Shapiro to appear in court. The attor-
ney said Shapiro had left for Tucson,
Ariz. in the morning to make a speech
and would not return until Monday.
Koster said Shapiro's testimony was
vital to his case. Shapiro's testimony is
"in direct favor of the defendants," he
Koster hoped to prove that only
Shapiro. had the authority to invoke the
trespass act and that he could not have
done so because he was in Washington
P.C. that day. Elden decided that the
case would begin, but that it would not
be concluded until Koster had a chance
to question Shapiro.
In his opening statement, Noah told.
the jury that trespassing is a serious of-
fense but not a difficult one to verify. He
informed the jury that an eight-minute
video tape had been made of the
demonstration and that the tape would
prove the defendants' guilt.
"ONE PART OF the University
didn't know what the other part was
doing,". Koster said in his
Koster wanted to establish that
although several University officials ha
ve the authority to read the trespass
act, only Shapiro has the authority to
decide if it is to be read.
Noah called Haddad as his first wit-
HADDAD testified that on the day in
question, "There were several people
)lockading the entrance to the
He said he asked the students what
they were doing there. They made
several demands which he said were
beyond his control.
According to Haddad, the demon-
strators demanded that the guidelines
adopted by the University for classified
research projects be extended to non-
classified research. The guidelines stat
that projects, "the clearly foreseeable
and probably result of which, the direct
application of which, or any specific
purpose of which is to destroy human
life or to incapacitate human beings,"
shall be prohibited on campus.
THE demonstrators also demanded
that the University publish all contracts
with the Department of Defense and
that Haddad stop doing his research.
Noah concluded his questioning of
Haddad by asking him if the demon-
strators were in the way.
"They were interfering with the con-
duct of the department and the
laboratory," answered Haddad.
IN HIS cross-examination of Haddad,
Koster established that the demon-
strators had not gone into the
laboratory, but had stayed just inside
Walt Stevens, director of public
safety for the University said he was
present when the trespass act was read
to the demonstrators and that they
were duly warned that they would be
arrested if they chose not to leave. The
students were given five minutes to
leave and then were removed by Ann
WHEN IT CAME time for Koster to
present his case, he decided to waive
Shapiro's subpoena and present his
case without Shapiro's testimony. The
attorneys had their testimony
previously agreed not to make other
University officials appear unless their
testimony was required.
Later Koster said he wasn't sure if
Shapiro's testimony would have
changed the verdict.
"I don't know," he said. "I think so,
but I don't know. I thought we had a
shot (at winning without Shapiro). I
may have made a tactical mistake
going ahead with the case."
THE DEFENDANTS did get a chan-
ce to explain their reasons for demon-
"The research in Prof. Haddad's
labaoratory is part of the notion that
we need weapons to achieve peace,"
said Nancy Aronoff, one of the defen-
S"I feel that this fear (of nuclear
holocaust) is like a dark cloud over
everybody," said Amy ann
Angelasstro, another defendant.
"People are waiting to die. They have

"I was arrested because I wanted to
call attention to Haddad's research,
which is going to lead to a nuclear
war," said Ingrid Kock, the third
Kock also cited thedecision of the
regents not to extend the guidelines for
classified research to non-classified
projects, after the Michigan Student
Assembly and the faculty senate ap-
proved the proposal, as another reason
"IN THIS CASE I couldn't stay within
the law becasue.. .the regents cut off of-
ficial channels" of communicationk,
"There was no authority for this
arrest with President Shapiro out of
town, "Koster said.
But the thrust of his closing
statement took on a different face. He
concluded by leaving the jury with one
"These women have shown a
willingness to bear witness, a
willingness to take a risk, a willingness
to demonstrate their hope, for you, for
me and for future generations," said
