The ad hoc committee that
reviewed the guidelines for
classified research at the
University discussed its findings
with the Research Policies
Committee and the Senate
Advisory Committee for
University Affairs yesterday.
The committee completed its
two reports last summer. A
majority report, drafted by nine of
the12 members, advocated tighter
restrictions for both classified
research and unclassified
research. A minority report filed
by the other three members
opposed restrictions on research
formed by University President
Harold Shapiro and had been
deliberated for nearly a year
before coming up with its
proposals. The committee
presented its recommendations to
Shapiro last July.
Shapiro distributed the reports
to various groups on campus,
including SACUAnand the
=Michigan Student Assembly.
These groups will have the entire
fall term to debate the proposals

before giving Shapiro their
SACUA President William
Stebbins said SACUA's
recommendations should be
ready for its November meeting.
Research Policies Committee
Chairman George Carignan said
the committee would reach a
decision after its fourth meeting
on the subject, currently
scheduled for early November.
DURING THE first committee
meeting, held yesterday,
committee members listened to
both minority and majority
reports. At the second meeting,
deans from various colleges in
the University will present their
opinions of the proposals and their
effects on future research projects.
The RPC will vote on
recommendations for Shapiro at
the fourth meeting.

outlined the majority report's
recommendations to eliminate
the "end-use" clause in the

faculty members from doing

can provide the parties with an
opportunity for an opening
occasion, but negotiations should
remain between the parties
concerned," Peres said, sharply
limiting the role of outside powers
in any substantive peace talks.
In addition to his talks here
with U.S. officials, Peres was
trying, through the Israeli
Embassy, to arrange a meeting
with Soviet Foreign Minister

Eduard Shevardnadze, who will
be in town at the end of the week to
see Secretary of State George
Shultz before traveling to New
York for the opening of the U.N.
General Assembly.
At the close of their summit
meeting in Alexandria last week,
Peres and Egyptian President
Hosni Mubarak agreed to explore
the idea of a multi-nation
conference on Middle East peace.
But Peres, who switches jobs next
month with Israeli Foreign
Minister Yitzhak Shamir,
encountered immediate
opposition from within his own
coalition government.
Both Reagan and Shultz
stressed their interest in direct
talks as well.
REAGAN said the Peres-
Mubarak summit itself
"demonstrated that Arab-Israeli
differences can best be resolved
through direct negotiations."
And Shultz set conditions for
any Soviet participation in a
multinational Middle East peace
conference, telling reporters the

President Reagan, unveiling his
plan to attack drug abuse in
America, ordered the executive
branch yesterday to set up
mandatory tests for federal
workers in sensitive jobs.
But Reagan's program drew
immediate resistance from the
American Civil Liberties Union
and labor organizations
representing federal employees.
IN THE Oval Office, where he
signed the order and put his name
on letters to Congress
accompanying a series of
legislative proposals, Reagan
said, "This is the federal
government's way of just saying
"no'to drugs."
Reagan's move came one day
after he and his wife, Nancy,
made a nationally televised
broadcast, appealing to people's
consciences and their sense of
patriotism, for help in waging
war on drug abuse.
With the formal
announcement of his anti drug-
abuse plan, including Reagan's
endorsement of capital
punishment for certain drug-
related offenses, the president
joined members of Congress who
have been scrambling to enact
new measures of their own.
BUT BEYOND the consensus
in official Washington that
something must be done about the
drug abuse problem, there were
indications that some suggested
solutions face heavy obstacles:

ROTC revival
Romantic ism of military
means more enlistments

Last summer, a University
Law School graduate who had just
passed the California Bar Exam
saw the movie Top Gun. It
changed his life. Instead of going
ahead with his law career, he
joined the Navy so he could fly
"We processed him right

U.S. Navy.
seemed like long hair and bell
bottoms would never be replaced
by crew cuts and uniforms. The
pendulum may not have swung
back all the way, but the
romanticization of the military
has resulted in a resurgence of
interest in the Reserve Officers
Training Corps (ROTC).
It might be that we all want to be
like Tom Cruise, fulfilling a
thirst for adventure by screaming

across the sky in an aerial roller
coaster at twice the speed of sound.
At least some of us do, Coburn
may be partially responsible for
the growth of the number of new
enlistments, but about half the
students in the programs are also
attracted by scholarships that pay
for tuition, books, a uniform
allowance, and $100-a-month
spending money.
"It's a good deal. I get an
education and in return the Navy
gets an officer," said engin-
eering sophomore Marty
Frierson, a Naval ROTC cadet.
"People tend to forget that those of
us in uniform are the ones who
protect their right to complain."
Besides the lust for adventure
and the lure of financial support,
some students enroll because they
