In fact, his sabbatical was with the CIA, and it had nothing to do with the war. Then, when the news of his true location became public, Rose declined to return to Rochester to answer questions, despite the fact that senior CIA officials urged him to do so. Freedman, who spent a day at CIA headquarters in Langley, interviewing officers involved in RIT activities, is expected to report that the CIA also was dismayed when Rose concealed the true nature of his sabbatical.

IN A SECTION of the report from which some panel members are expected to dissociate themselves, Freedman deals with efforts by Rose and trustee chairman Thomas GosneLl to discredit a former RIT dean, Edward Mclr-vine. Mclrvine disclosed publicly in June that RIT had initiated a CIA security clearance procedure behind his back and without his consent. A story was subsequently spread at RIT that Mclrvine had invented the incident because of a prior grievance with school administrators. The report will allege that Rose and GosneLl told fact finders that Mclrvine had lied, and that he had in fact signed a CIA form requesting clearance. The fact-finder's report concludes that Mclrvine was telling the truth, and that those who made false allegations against him either knew or should have know they were false.

Dissenting views will be reflected, either in footnotes or in the text, sources said. Personal statements by several panel members are likely to be attached. THE REPORT is most critical of the way RIT's governing organs allowed the CIA relationship to mushroom, without adequate oversight and without the knowledge of the majority of faculty, staff and students at the institution. According to sources, it contains strongly worded criticism of RIT President Rose for failing to inform the board of trustees of burgeoning CIA links, and of the trustees themselves, for periodically approving a vaguely worded resolution about classified research without questioning it further.

The report refers to RIT's leadership as authoritarian, and its governing structure as one that produced fear and intimidation, so that many who were disturbed by the CIA relationship did nothing about it. Investigators received considerable cooperation from RIT personnel, the report will point out. But it also will note significant problems and delays, partly because some of the information was classified, and partly because of obstruction, stonewalling and deliberately false statements by some officials. The report also recommends: Suspension of the "Officer-in-Residence" program whereby the CIA sends a senior officer to RIT, ostensibly to study or teach. In fact, Officer-in-Residence also recruits students for the CIA, the report will show.

Closing the Federal Programs Center, where RIT students with security clearances work 'on CIA-funded projects as part of an ROTC-type training program for the CIA. Making public all remaining CIA activities including unclassi-ified research contracts, private consulting by individuals and on-cam-pus recruiting. Prohibiting the processing of security clearances without the knowledge and consent of the person for whom the clearance is Clearly acknowledging RIT's 'relationship with the CIA and stating it publicly in all admissions and recruitment materials sent to students, including foreign students. The review panel has apparently concluded, after extensive investigation, that foreign students could have attended an institution identified with the CIA. In addition, the report proposes that the memorandum of agreement, which RIT entered into with the CIA in 1985, should be considered null and void, since it was never approved by the trustees or any governing body.

Investigators have concluded that the 1985 memorandum dismissed by Rose and other administrators as a non-operative "draft" effectively described the relationship between the CIA and RIT, and was never replaced by a shorter, less specifically worded memorandum in 1987. THE MEMORANDUM is a crucial piece of the RIT-CIA puzzle since it spells out in detail the ways in which the agency was to exert influence at the school, particularly in the Center for Imaging Science, where the agency would be involved in appointing faculty, determining curriculum, funding seminars and underwriting exchange programs. The investigators found additional links, notably that the CIA was closely involved in the move to establish an imaging science doctoral program and intended to provide substantial funds. However, the CIA's interest was never revealed to the RIT committees discussing the doctoral program. The report is expected to deal at length with the controversial report, "Japan: 2000," which RIT prepared for the CIA and which experts characterized as racist, factually incorrect and a prime example of Japan-bashing.

Investigators learned that although the document "Japan: 2000" was unclassified, the transcripts of the conference that gave rise to the report were classified and therefore unavailable to the academic community that sponsored it Their report concludes that this illustrates some of the problems associated with doing classified work at an academic institution, as well as the damage it causes when a purportedly scholarly document is produced in the name of an institution, but without appropriate academic oversight. The review panel and investigators reject the explanation that "Japan: 2000" was actually produced by RIT's applied research subsidiary, the RIT Research which the report refers to as "a wholly owned legal fiction." The report is expected to be particularly critical of Rose, who investigators conclude misled the RIT community on a number of issues. They found, for example, that the initial announcement of Rose's LOCATED AT CULVER RIDGE PLAZA 2255 RIDGE ROAD EAST ROCHESTER, NY 14622 TAKE CULVER ROAD EXIT OFF ROUTE 104, GO NORTH ON CULVER ROAD TO RIDGE ROAD.

DECORATOR SETS CRAFTHOUSE EACH EACH men "utilized the resources and facilities of the nation of Libya Boucher described Al-Megrahi as a well-connected senior Libyan intelligence official who reported directly to Gadhafi's brother-in-law, Abdullah Sanussi, the head of Libyan intelligence. The indicted men are fugitives, the Department of Justice said. Because the United States has no diplomatic relations or extradition arrangements with Libya, they cannot be apprehended through normal channels. The indictment alleged that the two, conspiring with others, worked to develop plastic explosive devices for use in international terrorism and specifically planned to bomb a U.S. airliner.

U.S. officials would not speculate about their motivation, but in the past officials have said it was retaliation for the 1986 bombing of Tripoli by U.S forces. Gadhafi's adopted daughter was killed in that raid. murder of 270 people." Boucher said that the United States was "in touch with our friends and allies regarding steps the international community should take to ensure that action is taken to punish the government of Libya in a way which will deter others." The flight, bound for New York from London, exploded 31,000 feet above Lockerbie, Scotland, on Dec. 21, 1988, killing all 259 people on board and 11 on the ground.

Of the dead, 189 were Americans, many of them homeward bound for Christmas holidays. The indictment, returned Wednesday and released yesterday, charged Abdel Basset Ali Al-Me-grahi, 39, the chief of airline security of the Libyan intelligence service, and Lamen Khalifa Fhimah, 35, a Libyan intelligence operative who worked as station manager and representative for Libyan Arab Airlines at Luga Airport in Malta.
