By KERY MURAKAMI
The Board of Regents, upset by the administration's
decision to reject a classified research project by
political science Prof. Raymond Tanter, yesterday or-
dered the administration to review the University's
guidelines for classified research.
Tanter's project, which would explore ways of reaching
arms control agreements without formal treaties, was
rejected by University Vice President for Research
Alfred Sussman last month, after the 12-member Resear-
ch Policies Committee voted unanimously that the project
violated the guidelines.
SUSSMAN said Tanter's project would have required
using classified documents for research which could
make his results classified as well. Sussman said the
project violates guidelines which state, "The University
will not enter into or renew any agreement or contract ...

Voicing concern yesterday over the rejection, Regent
Sarah Power (D-Ann Arbor) said, "Personally, I would be
troubled by the public perception that University policy
prevents persons from doing research."
Regent Nellie Varner (D-Detroit) asked if anything
could be done to make the guidelines more flexible, but
University President Harold Shapiro said that only the
regents could change a regental bylaw.
REGENT THOMAS Roach (D-Saline) then proposed a
resolution saying that the bylaws were created "13 years
