Research charges found false

By ROB EARLE
Student concerns that a secret
research project had by-passed nor-
mal University review channels
proved unfounded this week, but
student leaders said even a false
alarm is reason enough to take a hard
look at the classified review projects
and procedures.
The project, called "EMP Har-
dening and Hardness Assurance
Development Support," was a secret
project conducted by the Booz, Allen
& Hamilton Corporation of Bethesda,
Maryland for the Dikewood Cor-
poration, a major defense contractor.

ELECTRICAL engineering Prof. V.
V. Liepa, who was thought to have
been working on the Development
Support project, does have a subcon-
tract with Dikewood, but he is
working on an unclassified project.
The project was first questioned by
Michigan Student Assembly military
researcher Ingrid Kock. Among the
documents included with Liepa's
project was a 70 page manual
describing howato prepare a secret
document and a form describing the
classification restrictions of the
project.
Leipa said the form from the

Development Support Project is "a co
ver sheet that somebody got a hold of
someplace." The results to his
project, however, are available for
public scrutiny.
"It is open for anyone to see," he
said.
ELAINE BROCK, Liepa's project
representative at the University's
Research and Development Ad-
ministration, said the classification
notice and the manual for preparing
secret documents are part of a
package that Dikewood sends to all its
subcontractors, whether all the in-

formation is necessary or not.
"All subcontractors get everything
in every package," Brock said.
Kock however, questions the
necessity of including a "how-to"
manual for writing secret reports in
non-classified sub-contracts.
"I'm concerned about a project in
which the sponsor includes a seventy
page manual on how to prepare a
secret project for publication," she
said.
Kock said that despite the projects
true nature, it illustrates the need for
clearer and more easily enforceable
research guidelines.

WWHNazi war criminal faces execution

BELGRADE, Yugoslavia (UPI) --
Accused Nazi war criminal Andrija
Artukovic faces execution if convicted
of ordering the deaths of thousands of
Jewsd Serbs, and Gypsies during,
World War II, prosecutors said
yesterday.
The 86-year-old Artukovic, who was
a police minister in the Nazi puppet
state of Croatia from 1941 - 45, was
flown Wednesday from the United
States to Yugoslavia after losing two
final bids to avoid extradition and a
battle to evade prosecution that lasted
for nearly 35 years.
AN INDICTMENT, filed along with
a Yugoslavian extradition request in
1984, charged Artukovic with respon-
sibility for the deaths of thousands of
Serbs, Jews, gypsies, and pro-
Yugoslav Croats.
Asistant Justice Minister Predrag

Natovic told a news conference the
indictment also accused Artukov of
two counts of "crimes against
humaneness and international law."
Matovic, whobdeclined to say when
the trial could begin, said conviction
carried sentences ranging from a
minimum of five years to death.
Yugoslav doctors will examine Ar-
tukovic, legally blind, senile and suf-
fering from heart problems and other
ailments, and report to the Sabreb
district court, whose judge will decide
whether he is fit to stand trial,
Matovic said.
Under Yugoslav law no foreign
defense lawyers may appear before a
Yugoslav court. Matovic said two
defense lawyers have been assigned
to Artukovic.
Matovic said the trial will be open to
the public but added that the court has

the right to hold parts of the hearings
behind closed doors.
Artukovic, dubbed the "butcher of
the Balkans," was secretly flown

from a California prison to New York
to await a decision on his appeal of an
extradition order and then taken to a
regular JAT Yugoslav airline jet
bound for Yugoslavia.

dering the Aug. 21, 1983 slaying of her
husband, again called on Marcos to
step down until the election was
decided.
"Although I again urge my op-
ponent to concede, I recognize his
reluctance to do so," she said.
"Therefore, I propose that in the
national interest my opponent step
down ... until this matter is settled."
ALSO yesterday, the Reagan ad-
ministration, in its annual report on
human rights in 164 countries, said it
found evidence of "serious violations"
in the Philippines - both by gover-
nment forces and by communist-led
guerrillas.
It is said violations included
killings, torture and abduction of in-
nocent people.
The State Department has been
working on the study for months, so
there were no references to the
current Philippine elections.
The report said five years after
Marcos ended martial law he con-
tinues to exercise broad powers to
"limit criticism of the regime and op-
position activities."
"In 1985 there continued to be
serious human rights violations
throughout the country, although
there have been some positive
developments as well," the depar-
tment said, listing government
toleration of public rallies and a trend
toward press freedom.
"However, there were frequent
reports, many of them well-founded,
of human rights abuses, espescially in
the countryside, by government
security forces," the State Depar-
tment said. "These included sum-
mary executions or 'salvagings' of
civilians; instances of torture; ar-
bitrary arrests, detentions, unlawful
searches and seizures; and disap-
pearances.
Corrections
Two paragraphs were deleted from
yesterday's story on MSA ad-
ministrative coordinator Cheryl
Bullard's resignation, because of
space restraints. The Daily deleted
the fact that the reprimand Bullard
received for speaking to the Daily was
never entered into her personnel
record, and MSA decided Tuesday
night that Josephson and Cole had
conducted themselves properly.

Her dream was to coach high school football.
Her nightmare was Central High.
