Lefever recalled by senators

Lefever is being recalled for closed-
door questioning by a Senate commit-
tee next week, partly in response to a
Democratic request for full-scale
public hearings on his actions concer-
ning the marketing of baby formula in
poor countries.
The Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee may schedule the session with
Lefever, President Reagan's choice for
human rights adviser, next Wednesday
or Thursday, spokesman Scott Cohen
said yesterday.
COHEN SAID the session is partly in
response to three Democratic senators'
request. He said Sen. Charles Percy (r-
Ill.), chairman, has promised commit-
to new

been instituted which requires that of-
ficers attend at least four of six training
programs conducted during the year.
These programs consist of classroom
and target range training and are con-
ducted by the police department, he
Another thing helping Corbett settle
into his new post is the presence of what
he feels is a good relationship between
the police and the citizens here in Ann
ACCORDING TO Corbett; the police
also enjoy a good reputation among
University students, which he feels is
very important. He said that many of-
ficers feel this is the "best group of
students on campus" in quite some
time. He specifically mentioned the
cooperation and support students gave
the police in their attempts to control
and apparently put an end to the annual
Hash Bash.
The citizen support he feels here was
for the most part absent from his
Detroit post. There are, of course, great
differences between the citizens of Ann
Arbor and of Detroit's 14th precinct, he
sAnn Arbor is much higher up on the
income scale, Corbett noted. He
described many of Detroit's criminals
as "desperate" people who sometimes
see crime as their only alternative.
He added that often times criminals
are the heroes of children who grow up
in ghetto environments because they
are the ones who seem to be successful.
"Ann Arbor doesn't have this same
urban blight," he said.
Corbett also mentioned the personal
adjustments he has made in leaving his
old position, leaving behind old work
and social relationships and having to
get acquainted with a new environ-
He said, however, that aspect of
changing jobs was "very pleasant." He
added that Ann Arbor is "friendlier"
than Detroit. "There is a sense of
caring in this community," he said, in
contrast to the feeling of anonymity one
can have in Detroit.
Corbett also said that even though he
is the first new chief to come from out-
side the department he has been war-
mly accepted by his new command and
that the "support is gratifying."

Marketing of. baby
formula questioned

tee consideration of their request for
full-scale public hearings.
The three Democrats-Alan Cranston
of California, Paul Tsongas of
Massachusetts and Christopher Dodd of
Connecticut-last Friday called on
Lefever to "promptly withdraw" his
nomination and said they would ask
Percy for the hearings if he did not.
They submitted their formal request
Cranston said yesterday the new

hearings were needed because of
Lefever's "failure to level with us."
HE AND THE other two Democrats
asked for public testimony from
Lefever, U.N. Ambassador Jeane
Kirkpatrick and Nestle Corp. officials
to determine:
* If $25,000 in Nestle contributions to
Lefever's Ethics and Public Policy
Center were connected to the center's
distribution of an article supporting
marketing by Nestle and other com-

panies of baby formula in poor coun-
" Whether Lefever had any role,
through Mrs. Kirkpatrick, in the U.S.
vote in Geneva last week against World
Health Organization restrictions on the
baby formula marketing.
LEFEVER testified at his confir-
mation hearing two weeks ago that the
WHO restrictions came up only once in
his discussions with Mrs. Kirkpatrick
and that that was a passing reference.
Lefever also testified Nestle's con-
tribution to his research center had no
connection with the center's
distribution of a "Fortune" magazine
article entitled "Crusade Against the
Corporation: Churches and the Nestle
