University Vice President for
Research Alfred Sussman said
yesterday that the University has
asked the U.S. Arms Control and
Disarmament Agency to change a
proposal by Prof. Raymond Tanter,
so that Tanter's research conforms
with University bylaws.
Tanter, a political science
professor, proposed research to the
Washington-based federal agency
that would review previous U.S.-
Soviet arms negotiations and develop
an alternate approach to arms con-
BUT according to the proposal,
"The research will require access to
classified documents up to the level of
'secret,' " and that "any report
produced will reflect the
classification of the input material."
Because the reports resulting from
Tanter's research would be classified,

Judge S. J. Elden yesterday dismissed the murder charges against Debra
Robinson, who was accused of fatally stabbing her housemate on May 21.
Elden was not convinced that a crime had been committed.
Eyewitnesses Pat Patterson and James Williams both contradicted their init-
ial reports to the police the night of the incidents by saying that nothing happened.
"IN LIGHT of Mr. Patterson's perjury today and Mr. Williams' perjury
yesterday, the people will not call any further witnesses," said prosecuting
attorney Brian Mackey.
