The closing summation was giv-

chairman of the Council's commu-
nity relations committee.
Americans have more freedom
than any other large society has
ever been given, but there are
danger signs on the horizon, the
Flint Jewish community was
There are four conditions for
civil liberties in any society, said
Dr. Robert Heywood. He listed
formal and legal protections,
widespread support of civil lib-
erties, conditions permitting the
right to dissent and a citizenry
willing to defend civil liberties.
Lobenthal, who serves in the de-
partment of sociology at Wayne
State University, warned that only
one of those conditions—the first-
exiSts in American society.
"We find ourselves moving in-
extricably toward the direction of
suppression, not through civil, but
out of efficient, administrative, ap-
propriate decision processes," he
said. "We have no choice but to be
radical, because the natural flow
is repressive. It is efficient and
technological to move from democ-
racy to fascism. Unless we take a
strong and active position for civil
rights for all, our neutrality will
put us in the position of being
forces of repression."
Citing historian Henry Steele
Commager as saying, "Freedom is
dying in America," Lobenthal
noted the high percentage who will
not sign petitions—a right guaran-
teed in the Bill of Rights of the
Surveys of high school students,
he said, show that 60 per cent
think censorship is permissible, 4
per cent support third-degree in-
terrogation by police to some de-
gree, 33 per cent believe it is all
right to search withQut a warrant
and 40 per cent would restrict the
right to vote.
Dr. Cohen said that civil liberties
are not about to be destroyed by
a revolution, but that they are de-
teriorating. He saw three threats
to civil liberties—wiretapping, con-
spiracy laws and the refusal of citi-
zens to listen to other's views. The
Constitution grants freedom against
unreasonable search and seizure,
he said, yet "eavesdropping on a
telephone is unreasonable search.
I don't think most people realize
how pernicious phone tapping is."
Last year in Michigan, 22,000
telephone calls were tapped with
a judicial warrant, "and we don't
know how many without one,"
he said, adding that the law on
conspiracy to commit a crime
becomes a way in which vigor-
ous criticism can be thwarted.
Trespassing, for instance, is a
misdemeanor, but conspiracy to
trespass is a felony.
Besides, he said, the charge is
