"(A new facility) must be flexible because
you don't know what will come up in the
future," he said. The changes will
ultimately save the University money,
he added, because the new facilities
will allow research to be conducted
more efficiently.
"Chemistry has changed enormously
from a gallon-type operation to a very
small operation," he said. Instead of
using large amounts of chemicals to
perform experiments, researchers
today rely more heavily on computer
systems.

The project includes a sophisticated
computer information system which
will speed up research, Dunn said.
THE FOUR-story building, expected
to be completed in three years, will add
several lecture and seminar rooms and
more than 100 small research labs.
An underground library is also being
planned for a later time.
Regents also approved a $4.3 million
renovation plan for Lorch Hall which
will be funded by an insurance set-
tlement from the fire in the Economics
Building.
Although CRISP would be relocated
under the plan, the economics depar-
tment, Center for Research in
Economic Development and the In-
stitute for Public Policy would be
housed in Lorch Hall.
A new location for CRISP has not
been decided yet.

Mozambique bombing strike,
draws South African revenge
PRETORIA, South Africa - Warplanes pounded suspected guerrilla
bases in neighboring Mozambique yesterday to avenge the car bomb attack
by black nationalist rebels in Pretoria last week. Mozambique said five
people were killed and 30 wounded in the raid.
The warplanes armed with missiles and cannon also "effectively
neutralized" Soviet-made SAM-5 anti-aircraft missile batteries guarding the
facilities, said South African Defense Minister General Magnus Malan.
The official Mozambique news agency AIM said all of the dead and woun-
ded were civilian Mozambicans living in the suburb of Matola.
AIM and South African officials said seven jet fighters swooped over the
city warning the Maputo airport tower an attack was about to begin, then
unleashed a barrage of rockets and machine-gun fire.
Thatcher ad charged as racist
LONDON - Opposition politicians hoping to erode Prime Minister
Margaret Thatcher's lead in the polls, yesterday charged a Conservative
election advertisement aimed at black voters was "degrading" racism.
The Labor Party rolled out the adjectives to denounce the Conservative
Party ad in ethnic minority newspapers as "fraudulent ... pious nonsense,"
and in the worst possible taste.
The advertisement - showing a smartly dressed black man - appealed to
the black population to re-elect the Conservative Party, which passed the
Nationality Act guranteeing full citizenship to all British citizens.
"Labor says he's black. Tories say he's British" said the poster.
Britain's Asians and West Indians make up only about 4 percent of the
population and wield just 2.5 million votes, but they are concentrated in
parliamentary seats where the ballot could easily swing to favor either the
Conservatives or a.Labor candidate in elections June 9.
Peru warfare kills 169
LIMA, Peru - The military said yesterday that 160 people - all but two of
them rebels or peasants - were killed ina week of fighting in central Peru,
and President Fernando Belaunde suggested he might send a special anti-
guerrilla squad into the battle zone.
The report on the bloodiest week yet in the 3-year-old guerrilla war raised
the official death toll from two months of fighting to 560. More than 1,000
people have been reported killed since Belaunde sent soldiers into the
guerrilla heartland last Dec. 29.
About 1,000 officers of the civil guard, national police and Republican
Guard - backed by 2,000 soldiers - are battling an estimated 500-700 leftist
rebels around the state capital of Ayacucho, 350 miles southeast of Lima.
But Belaunde told reporters here that he was considering pulling out the
soldiers and sending in a "more modern and flexible" police force. He did
not elaborate, but apparently was referring to a special anti-guerrilla police
squad.
Israeli doctors vow to strike
TEL AVIV, Israel - Striking public-health doctors yesterday vowed to
defy any government back-to-work order, and skeleton crews staffed most of
Israel's hospitals where patients complained about lack of attention.
The government issued back-to-work orders yesterday to 1,300 of some
8,000 striking doctors. Many hospitals were close to collapse, with just 10
percent of the physicians on duty.
The orders were read on Israel Television and state radio broadcast the
names of the doctors who were told to report to work at 8 a.m.
An Isreal Television correspondent said he was told by Attorney General
Yitzhak Zamir that if the doctors disobeyed the orders, it would be regarded
as civil disobedience and the defiant doctors would be brought to trial quicky
and punished.
Some 8,000 doctors, the vast majority of the physicians in a country where
most people subscribe to the public health service, walked off their jobs Sun-
day in-a pay dispute and hid in resort hotels from their government em-
ployers.
Hundreds camp-out for loans
COLUMBUS, Ohio - Hundreds of people, many of whom had camped out-
side banks through three days of rain, jammed lending offices yesterday in a
scramble to get one of up to 6,000 home mortgage loans being offered at 9.98
percent interest.
Mark Hendrickson, 26, said he had "butterflies, heart palpitations - the
whole thing," while waiting outside Buckeye Federal Savings and Loan in
downtown Columbus since Friday morning. But when the doors opened at 8
a.m., Hendrickson was at the head of the line of 112 people.
"It was definitely worth it," he said.
"We did it," said his smiling wife, Trish, who had kept vigil with her
husband in an alley behind the savings and loan.
Yesterday was the first day financial institutions could lend from a $300
million fund raised by a state bond sale, and most reported large crowds for
the first-come, first-served loans. Some hopeful homebuyers had lined up as
early as Wednesday, officials said.
Raymond Sawyer, executive director of the Ohio Housing Finance Agen-
cy, estimed the money would provide 5,000 to 6,000 30-year mortgages, gran-
ted through 449 institutions statewide.
