WASHINGTON (AP)- One of
the most expensive, negative, and
unfocused campaigns in memory
will likely leave the House of
Representatives pretty much the
way it is now, solidly Democratic.
Both parties have predicted an
overall gain for the Democrats of as
many as 10 seats in the chamber
where they already hold a 253-180
A gain of that size, however,
would be a departure from recent
political history, which has seen
much larger losses in off-year
elections for the party in control of
the White House. So both sides are
poised to call such an outcome a
Democratic incumbents are un -
contested in 53 districts nationwide,
and are rated as solid favorites in at
least 184 others, which would auto -
matically put them well over the
218 seats needed for control.
Sixteen Republicans have free
rides to re-election, and GOP can -
didates are likely victors in another
Most of the attention nationally
was focused on the Senate races.
Republicans hold a 53-47 edge in
the current Senate, but are defending
22 of the 34 seats on the ballot.

Committee urges watchdog
panel for classified research
By MARTIN FRANK
The Research Policies Comm-
ittee unanimously passed an
amendment yesterday to urge the
University to set up a committee
that would make sure the proposed
guidelines for classified research are
The amendment is a result of the
displeasure of many RPC members
with the proposed guidelines'
elimination of review panels. The
current guidelines provide for two
review panels-the RPC and the
Classified Review Panel-and were
reviewed by an ad hoc committee
appointed by University President
THE AMENDMENT, in
effect, "will formulate review
procedures to monitor compliance
with the policies of the majority
The majority report was signed
by nine of the 12 members of the
ad hoc committee. It would
eliminate a clause that forbids
classified research that could kill or
maim humans, and it would do
away with the review panels.
The minority report, signed by
three committee members, proposed
the elimination of research
guidelines in order to protect
academic freedom. Yesterday the
RPC rejected that proposal.
RPC CHARIMAN George
Carignan said, "We need to oversee
a review panel that can work. The
current enforcement mechanism
doesn't start to work until after the
contract has started."
Many RPC members supported
Carignan's call for a review
committee, including RPC member
and student activist Ingrid Kock,
who said the absence of a review
panel removes students from the
Some members of Shapiro's ad
hoc committee, however, do not see
the need for enforcement
mechanisms, which is why they
left enforcement up to department
heads, project directors, deans, and
the Division of Research and
The committee and other groups
on campus have until the end of fall
semester to give their
recommendations to Wilson. She
said the regents will vote on the
research guidelines next semester.
The faculty's Senate Advisory
Committee on University Affairs
decided in its meeting yesterday to
bring before the assembly a motion
to adopt research policies based
upon the majority report and have
the RPC monitor implementation
and operation of the policy,
according to SACUA representative
The motion will be brought
before the assembly at its next
meeting which is scheduled for

IMPAC sent about 40 students
to Illinois in 1984 to campaign for
Democrat Paul Simon in his race
against Republican incumbent
Senator Charles Percy. Simon went
on to defeat Percy by less than a
percentage point, and Goldenberg,
who now works for Simon, says
IMPAC played a role in putting
him in office.
BOTH Goldenberg and Parness
say one striking'feature of IMPAC
is that it Xpows no party
boundaries. "The best part is that
you have Democrats, Republicans,
conservatives, independents, and
everyone else agreeing on a single
issue that is very important," says
The educational impact is also
important, according to Goldenberg.
She says it teaches people about the
importance of pro-Israel activity and
also educates people who do not
know about the issue.
A problem that arises with
groups of this sort, however, is that
they focus on one issue so much
that they ignore all the others.
Goldenberg admits there are
problems with "single-issue

THE PROPOSED council
would be charged with monitoring
the quality of the freshman and
sophomore years and coming up
with new courses and proposals to
improve those years.
Money for improvements may
be there for the asking. Vice
President for Academic Affairs
James Duderstadt has recently come
out strongly in support of LSA in
both speeches and budget
allocations, but LSA Dean Peter
Steiner said, "I don't think it's a
simple matter to decide how to
utilize such additional funds."
The proposal did not clearly
define the exact make-up and duties
of the committee and the
discussion, led by Steiner, was
somewhat reminiscent of a student
coming unprepared to class. Faculty
members continually pressed
Steiner on questions such as how
committee members would be
appointed, whether students would
be on the committee, whether
faculty members would be
compensated for their time, and
how large the committee would be.
"We have not thought a great
deal about the structure," Steiner
Steiner said he had brought the
proposal to the meeting to "get a
feel for the faculty sentiment about
the sensibility of the initiative."
Faculty members were reluctant
to back the proposal, which they
called vague. "I see a blank
document. I don't know what the
nature of the council is going to
be," said English Prof. Eric
Rabkin led the group of faculty
members who flatly opposed the
