Edmund (Jerry) Brown Jr. "We feel like we're a third party caught between the secretary of state and the former governor," said Cornelius Pings, university senior vice president of academic affairs. "We have them; they were given to us," Pings said. "If the state has some action, we'll respond to it at the time." The university acquired about 1,600 boxes of letters, memos and personal correspondence in 1982, when Brown chose USC from among six locations — including the California State Archives and UC Berkeley — to house his gubernatorial papers. "All we have done is in good faith" in acquiring the papers, Pings said. ’ Potential legal fight However, Eu maintains that Brown's donation violates a 1975 law that Brown himself signed, which declares legislative and gubernatorial papers "public records." Eu's office sent a letter to the university, dated Jan. 20, threatening to sue the university if it does not return the collection to the state archives within 30 days, said Karen Daniels-Meade, Eu's media director, in an interview Tuesday. "We are prepared to file suit within 30 days of receipt of the letter," Daniels-Meade said. "The issue of public disclosure is different from property,""Eu (Continued on page 16) Salk theory enlisted to fight AIDS By Michael Lambert Staff Writer University researchers are now experimenting with antibodies that may combat Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome based on the theories of E>r. Jonas Salk, discoverer of the polio vaccine, researchers said Tuesday. Dr. Brian Henderson, director of the university's Kenneth Norris Jr. Cancer Hospital, said researchers have been testing the immunization material since last fall on people exposed to the AIDS virus. "We're testing the material he (Salk) prepared," Henderson said. "This is a pilot study. Basically it's a safety study of new material to see if the material is safe to give to people." Gordon Cohn, director of public relations at the Norris hospital, said the research involves using dead AIDS viruses to help develop the body's ability to fight the virus, a similar method used in the development of other vaccines. "The whole virus is killed by radiation and injected in the hopes of enhancing the patient's immune system," he said. "We're hoping that the killed virus induces a response." This is the first time dead AIDS viruses have been tested on humans. "Dr. Salk tested it on animals before we started working with him though," (Continued on page 2) Students to see debates via satellite By Chris Eftychiou Staff Writer Students can view separate live debates between the Democratic presidential candidates on Thursday and Republican candidates on Friday on a 20-foot-wide screen in the Annenberg Main Auditorium. The College Satellite Network will transmit the program via satellite from the debate site at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. The program will be broadcast exclusively to more than 500 universities across the country. The speakers committee of the USC Program Board will present the program in Annenberg and will select questions from students in the audience. CSN officials will screen the questions and may select some to be read live to candidates. Although several hundred universities are expected to submit questions for con- sideration, Jackie LaFleur, CSN's executive assistant to the president, said she believed at least one USC student would be able to question the candidates via a telephone hook-up. "I'd say it's pretty good . . . not everybody's calling in all the time," she said. All candidates who survived Tuesday's New Hampshire primary are scheduled to participate in the debates. Democratic candidates will debate Thursday, including Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis, Missouri Rep. Richard Gephart, Illinois Sen. Paul Simon and the Rev. Jesse Jackson. Friday's Republican debate will feature Vice President George Bush, Kansas Sen. Bob Dole and former televangelist Pat Robertson. CSN will provide exclusive programming to go along with the debate, including political comedy, on-air polls, live phone-in questions and voter registration information, said Mark Mathews, a CSN account executive. The program will begin at 5:30 p.m. PST both days with an introduction by Kathy Cronkite of KLBJ radio in Austin. She will explain the program's features and what students can expect. The debate will concentrate on national issues, and a live audience of student body presidents and college publication editors will view the debate in Texas. Todd Manard, director of the speakers committee, said, "Everything that's national debate material is going to affect students," so candidates won't concentrate on student-oriented topics, such as financial aid. However, students can address those specific types of questions during a live phone-in portion later in the program. Manard said that Annenberg should be filled to its 206-person capacity. (Continued on page 17) Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis will face Illinois Sen. Paul Simon and five other Democratic presidential candidates in a debate Thursday that will be broadcast live via satellite to campus. A similar debate among the Republican candidates will be televised live on Friday. Both debates will be shown in Annenberg Main Auditorium at 5:30 p.m.
