'U' community backs

The United States Government may
have declassified research proposals
from University professors in order to
get around guidelines that limit
classified research here, according to
a former top research official.
Alfred Sussman, interim University
yice President for Research until last
September, said that government
agencies have dropped the classified
status of proposals when approached
by University officials with the terms
of the current research guidelines.
THE CURRENT guidelines, which
prohibit research that may threaten
human life or that cannot be openly
published, are under review by a
committee of students, faculty mem-
bers, and administrators appointed
by University President Harold
Speaking last night at the commit-
tee's second open meeting, Sussman
said University officials have forced
he government "on most occasions"
todeclassify projects that would have
'violated the guidelines.
He could not, however, provide
specific examples of this practice,
when questioned by members of the
OVERALL, Sussman warned the
committee of the dangers changing
the guidelines. Opponents of the
review have said weakening the rules
would flood the University with
Classified and military research
"I believe we ought to very
seriously consider the risks involved
in changing the guidelines," Sussman-
He said the current guidelines have
worked well, particularly for the
Research Policies Committee, a panel
responsible for determining if
proposals conform to the guidelines
before they are sent to executive of-
Other speakers at the meeting last
night also expressed their support for
maintaining the guidelines as they
Art History Prof. Joel Isaacson
stressed the importance of balancing
the freedom of inquiry of researchers
with the protection of the community
"Individual interest must be sub-
jugated to the common goal," he said.
In this light, Isaacson siad, "the
review is appropriate and
Isaacson suggested going one step
further - applying the guidelines to
non-classified research as well. The
Board of Regents rejected such a
proposal in 1983, even though it had
the support of many students and
An opposing view was presented by
Prof. Chihiro Kikuchi, of the nuclear
engineering department, who said
some relaxing of the guidelines should
take place when the results of the
research could benefit the com-
Kikuchi conducts "nuclear peace
preparedness research," and needs to
use classified materials in his work.
He said the guidelines should be
changed to exclude the requirement
to publich openly and that reviewers
should be careful about excluding
projects where there is a very low risk
of harm to human life.
