Hulcher Recominends
Community Leaders
For Council Approval
By JILL CRABTREE
Ann Arbor Mayor Wendell E.
Hulcher yesterday recommended
to the City Council the names of
three citizens to fill recently vac-
ated positions on the city's Human
Relations Commission (HRC).
Those named by Hulcher are
Harold W. Katz, Mrs. Stanley
Thayer and Mrs. Wallace Officer.
Katz is a program director for
KMS Industries and a member of
the Ann Arbor Chamber of Com-
merce. Mrs. Thayer is a member
of the League of Women Voters,
the local NAACP and the Civil
Rights Coordinating Council. Mrs.,
Officer is treasurer of the Ann Ar-
bor Women's Federation and a
member of the Citizens for Better
School Organization.
Hulcher said tihat in making his
recommendations he took special
Uonsiderations of the need for
"broad representation of various
segments of our community" on
the HRC, and said he sought a
"balance in terms of such factors
as socio-economic conditions, race,
sex, religion, age and way of life."
He added that he sought "maxi-
mum possible community confi-
dence by all of our citizens to en-,
sure maximum effectiveness."
Hulcher said that "an effective
commission that represents the
many, varied viewpoints is of ut-
most importance. Maintenance of
aggressive programs for equal op-
portunity for all citizens in all
areas of life is mandatory."
Mrs. Thayer replaces Mrs. Nor-
ma Kraker, University Supervisor
of Off Campus Housing and Stu-
dent-Community Relations, who
submitted her resignation from the'
HRC two weeks ago in a memo to
Council expressing her dissatisfac-
tion with HRC make-up and prac-
tices.

week because she is moving out of

Research

By HENRY GRIX
F. Lee Bailey, the slick, cele-
brated defense attorney, prose-
cuted the jury system and de-
fended the Supreme Court and
human rights in Hill Auditorium
Sunday.
"The jury system is not that
accurate," Bailey charged, be-
cause there is "no means in the
world to correct an error by a
jury." While an executive decision
can rescind a jury decision, it
seldom does because the public
frowns on the reversal of con-
victions.
Bailey would like to have a
"guarantee of acquittal" for an
innocent person. But the jury
usually infers t h a t a man
"wouldn't be here if he hadn't
done something," Bailey feels.
"It would be a good system if
its theorectical principles were

followed, but they are not," the
lawyer continued. The result is
an "even-steven" justice: one in-
nocent man is convicted for every
guilty man.
Bailey, who gained fame de-
fending Drs. Carl Coppolino and
Sam Sheppard, proposed "a re-
view board with the power to re-j
view facts" and acquit individ-
uals.
The attorney lauded recent
Supreme Court decisions which
were designed to inform ordinary
citizens of their rights, rather{
than to handicap police and abet
criminals.
High Costs
While the criminal often knows
his rights, the innocent, accused
individual is usually unaware of
them and is staggered by legal
costs. Furthermore, insufficiently

Sit- I
SACUA Ht
Tomorrow's
'Disruption'
By KEN KELLEY
A group of twenty-six faculty
members will join the sit-in at the
administration building tomorrow
to protest the University's par-
ticipation in classified war re-
search.
Twenty-three literary school and
three engineering school faculty
declared jointly in a one sentence
statement that "the University
should not conduct classified war
research" and will "therefore par-
ticipate in the sit-in at the ad-
ministration building tomorrow.
Although individual f a c u 1 t y
members have joined past sit-ins
this marks the firsttime that an
organized group has ever joined a
sit-in.
Twenty-three members of the
group have professorial rank, the
other three hold academic ap-
pointments as an instructor, lec-
turer, and research "study direc-
tor" respectively.
Liberals
Several are prominent liberals,
including Frithjof Bergmann of
the philosophy deparement, Nich-
olas Kazarinoff of the mathema-
tics department and Anatol Rapo-
port of the Mental Health Re-
search Institute.
Meanwhile the Faculty Senate
Advisory Committee on University
Ofairs issued a statement follow-
ing its meeting yesterday opposing
the sit-iii planned for 1 p.m. to-
morrow.
"Demonstrations are not the
way in which an academic com-
munity can most effectively reach
a sound judgment" stated SACUA.
"Continuing discussion of this is-
sue, participated in by all members
of the community, can lead us to
a correct position on what is to
be done, which will then be imple-
mented as official University pol-
icy."

"Oh no, ' I'd rather not com-

tories Director Rune W. Evaldson
about the sit-in planned to pro-
test Univesrity involvement in a
$1 million counterinsurgency pro-
ject in Thailand.
Other University administrators
were equally reticent about to-
morrow's scheduled demonstra-
tion.
Vice President for University
Relations Michael Radock said he

did not expect any comment
would be forthcoming from Pres-
ident Harlan Hatcher.
"Why should be make any com-
ment," Radock said. "I don't
think he'll want to make one."
No Comment

make."
President-designate Robben W.
Fleming, who will succeed Hat-
cher Jan. 1, also declined com-
ment on the sit-in. "I don't want
to take a public position," he
said.
The sit-in is planned for 1 p.m.
in the Administration Bldg. of-
fice of Vice President for Re-

an end to the classified, defense

Reactors Agree
UAC's reactor panel, made up of
Willtam Cahalan, Wayne County
prosecutor; Frank Kelley, State
Atty. General; Prof. Yale Kamisar
of the law school; and Otis Smith,
University regent and former
State Supreme Court Justice, es-
sentially agreed with Bailey.
Kelley noted that in the ma-
jority of Michigan's 83 counties,
state trial lawyers earn "less than
the janitor in the building and
must spend a disproportionate
amount of time in private prac-
tice."
Kamisar attacked the hand-
ling of organized crime by the
state and by the taxpayers. He
charged that "while everyone is
calling bloody murder, we have
two of the softest guys to comej
down the pike." He slammed the!
American public for being willing
to do "anything to combat crime,
except pay for it."

J. Gainsley.

In its statement SACUA con-
tended that "the issue of Univer-

search is a complicated one about
which members of the University
community may have honest dif-
ferences of opinion. Anyone has
a right to voice his opinion and
even demonstrate on its behalf so
long as his'actions do not infringe
in the rights of others."
Opposition Explained
Faculty members participating
in the sit-in are opposed to classi-
field war research primarily be-
cause of its contribution to defense
effort and because of the lack of
dissemination of findings, which
some felt was not in keeping with
a University's function.
Bergmann said he plans to sit-in
"because the classified research is
being used for such things as
counter-insurgency, where the
University has no place."
"People very close to me," he
continued, "are doing something to
which I'm opposed, and I want'
them to be more responsible."
"I am not opposed to all clas-
sified research, but the research
being done is unconscionable be-
cause of the warfare resulting
from it," added Bergmann.
Another sit-in opponent, Profes-
sor Robert Sklar of the history de-
partment said, "the Thailand pro-
ject is contemptible and indefensi-
ble."
"There is no excuse for the Uni-
versity to be used by the govern-
