Harvard Scientists Hit Research for Military.

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Harvard scientists have organized a Science Action Coordinating Committee (SACC) in opposition to militaristic use of science and technology, James Shapiro, a research fellow in bacteriology, revealed yesterday.

The group, consisting of Faculty members and graduate students in the sciences, was formed in response to the planned March 4 research stoppage at M.I.T., but will deal with larger issues, Shapiro said. "We must face the problem of where science is being channelled in this country," he said.

Harvard SACC is currently circulating petitions supporting the March 4 protest, and is trying to convince Harvard scientists to stop their research that day and attend the teach-in at M.I.T.

Harvard SACC was founded Sunday afternoon by seven graduate students and one Faculty member--Thomas Wegmann, assistant professor of Biology. A meeting in planned for Thursday night.
