Niara Sudarkasa, the
University official in charge of
minority enrollment, will leave
her position Feb. 1 to become
president of Lincoln University
near Philadelphia.
Sudarkasa, associate vice
president for academic affairs
and an anthropology professor,
said she was "pleasantly
surprised" at being named
Lincoln's new president.
SUDARKASA has been in
charge of the University's effort to
increase minority enrollment
since1983. She has been working
on a three-part report on minority
enrollment and will present the
final phase of that study--on
retention of undergraduate
minority students-this fall. The
last part of the report was
originally scheduled for com-
pletion more than a year ago.
In March1985 Sudarkasa and

sanctions against the white m.i-

The 313-83 vote rejected, in
effect, Reagan's last-minute offer
to invoke new but, limited
sanctions by executive order
against the South African
government of P.W. Botha.
The Democratic-controlled
House originally approved the
sanctions legislation 308-77, and
it had seemed virtually im-
possible that the chamber would
reverse course and sustain Rea-
gan's veto of last week. It takes a
vote of two-thirds of the members
present to override a veto.
THE REAGAN defeat in the
House shifts the battle to the
Senate, where Majority Leader
Bob Dole (R-Kan.) has ac-
knowledged that finding enough
votes to sustain the president's
veto has proved "very difficult."
In the moments before the vote,
House members debated once
more the wisdom of attacking the
South African system of racial
apartheid with tough sanctions.

Rep. Dante Fascell (D-Fla.)
chairman of the House Foreign
Affairs Committee, told the House
it was imperative to override the
Reagan veto because, "We need to
express very clearly once again
our feeling as the institution
representing the American people
the feelings we have about the
institution of apartheid."

"We have really tried to lay a
firm foundation for advancing

versity's executive officers en-

what only a few schools have been

"Alumni, faculty, staff, and

Sudarkasa said.

he doesn't want to lose the
"momentum" Sudarkasa has
gained in minority enrollment,

Deans support research imit

Three associate deans said yesterday that they
generally concur with a report that recommends
limiting classified research at the University.
Speaking at a meeting of the Research Policies
Committee, the deans expressed their satisfaction
with a document signed by nine of the12 members of
an ad hoc committee that reviewed the University's
current guidelines on classified research. The three
other committee members issued a minority report
which calls for the virtual elimination of
restrictions on secret research.
THE MAJORITY report endorses opening all
research contracts to public inspection and ensuring
that the results of most research projects be pulished
one year after funding has ended. At the same time,
however, the majority report eliminates the "end-
use" clause in the current guidelines that forbyids
research that could lead to the killing or maiming of
human beings.
Associate Engineering Dean Daniel Atkins said
he is satisfied with the majority report in part
because its restrictions will not radically alter
permissible research. "Most of what we are doing
can be accommodated by the (proposed) guidelines,"
he said.

Atkins emphasized that his views do not
necessarily represent the views of the engineering
ATKINS said he supports classified research in
some situations, especially if professors come across
classified material inadvertently.
"Most faculty members do not set out to do
classified research, but sometimes they extend into
the boundaries of classified research," he said.
"There is little classified research going on in
engineering, and I don't sense any pressures to do
more, but should it happen, (faculty members) can
move to a place that can accommodate their desires,"
Atkins added.
But Atkins said he doubts that researchers would
leave the University to go where classified research
is more permissible because they would have to give
up their contact with top-notch graduate students and
ASSOCIATE Medical School Dean Irwin
Goldstein said he is pleased with the majority report,
but he opposed eliminating the end-use clause.
All three deans, however, said they are confident
that faculty members will not engage in research
that could destroy human life.

A University space scientist has said he would discourage
students from entering careers in the space science field if the
government decides to replace the space shuttle Challenger by
cutting funds from other space programs.
If the National Aeronautics and Space Administration builds a
new shuttle at the expense of other experimental space launches, it
could endanger the survival of space science, said atmospheric and
oceanic science Prof. Thomas Donahue.
"It doesn't make sense for students to go into the area," he said.
Donahue is the chairman of the space science board of the National
Academy of Sciences.
DONAHUE said he is "warning the nation, NASA, and Congress
to worry about building something else besides building the shuttle
