Comittee wants ear guidelines

ideas is basic to the purpose of a
University," Janecke said, urging
that the part of the current guidelines
restricting research that cannot be
published openly "not be weakened
under any circumstances."
Other members of the University
and Ann Arbor community agreed
and defended the other main tenent of
the current policy - that no research
that can threaten human life may be
conducted.
Representatives from the Campus
Ministry insisted that weakened
guidelines would lead to more
military research that would
dangerously link the University to the
Department of Defense.
"WE BELIEVE that the University
community is jeopardized by secret
classified research because those who
practice it owe their loyalty to another
community of people - the military,"
said Don Coleman of campus
ministries.
Committee member Carl Cohen,
who is a professor of Philosophy, then
attacked Coleman's statement as
"horrendous."

"What do you mean to say these are
wholly incompatible loyalties? How
can you possibly believe that? Anyone
can do his intellectual and University
work and support the defense com-
munity at the same time," said
Cohen, who has criticized research
guidelines in the past.
PROF. PHILIPP Converse, the
director of the Center for Political
Studies and the committee's chair-
man, prefaced the meeting by
criticizing what he called "the
misconception that we already know
what we're going to decide."
Michigan Student Assembly leaders
have accused the University of trying
to pressure the committee into
loosening the guidelines.
Converse said earlier that the
committee is stil in its "information
gathering stage," and has taken into
account how other universities deal
with classified research.
Ingrid Kock, the MSA's military
researcher, told the committee at its
last meeting that many peer in-
stitutions, including Harvard and
Yale, prohibit classified research or

research that cannot be openly
published.
Converse agreed that "it's fairly
clear that a number of other univer-
sities simply ban classified research
in general," but he cautioned that the
committee "does not feel bound by
what other places do."
Converse said the committee has

not yet substantively addressed the
issues of open research or research.
that threatens human life, adding that
there areas "are still up for grabs."
"I don't think anybody is resistant
to a policy that requires freedom to
publish," he said, "but the question is
whether there are any time limits on
this."

pedestrians. "The DDA is a
facilitator that can provide financing
for sidewalk and parking im-
provements in connection with
private development of office and
retail spaces," he said.
" THE DOWNTOWN Development
Authority, which is funded by the city,
is cooperating with developers to
build Tally Hall, a combination
retail area/parking structure on
Liberty Street.
Richard Black, a local architect,
praised the city for its planning
process. Much of historic Ann Arbor
remains intact, he said, and new
buildings are designed to complement
existing architecture while projecting
modern image.
"Future designs should not destroy
the integrity of downtown," he said.
THE PANEL, chaired by
University planner Fred Mayer,
agreed that downtown development
projects should be sensitive to the
human activities that go on there.
"We don't just look at our environ-
ment, we have to. exist in it," said
Peter Pollack of Pollack Design
Associates.
Pollack urged that a city park or
"open air space" be developed down-
town in order to make the area more
livable.
City Planner Gerald Clark added
that housing should be encouraged in
the downtown area, but he also said,
"If there's going to be affordable

housing downtown, it's going to be
with the taxpayer's money."-
Speakers during the public com-
ments session of the meeting said the
city should encourage less expensive
housing downtown.
