News release announces that Brother Raymond L. Fitz, S.M., University of Dayton president, has accepted the recommendation of the Academic Senate to permit the CIA to continue to recruit on campus. Before the announcement, Fitz wrote a letter to President-elect George Bush to share with him the Academic Senate's seven-page recommendation. The letter recognized the importance of the CIA to national security and urged Bush, a former director of the CIA, to "set a moral tone for CIA activity." He sent similar letters to U.S. Senators John Glenn and Howard Metzenbaum of Ohio, both of whom serve on the Senate intelligence committee, and to U.S. Rep. Tony Hall, who represents the 3rd District of Ohio, which includes Dayton.
