Law students' work at a legal
aid clinic could become more than
an extracurricular activity, a Uni-
versity experiment suggests.
If properly done, many unique
educational benefits may be foundt
in a course that offers academic
credit for work at a legal clinic,1
reports Prof. James J. White who.
conducted such an experimental
course last summer. t
However, he adds, the experi-
ment would require further evalu-'
ation by "observers more objective
Although some 100 law students
work at the Washtenaw County
Legal Aid Clinic each semester,
their work is under the supervision
of staff attorneys and is com-
In the experimental course,
however, students worked under
Prof. White's direction and for
academic credit. Ten students,
chosen randomly from 25 appli-
cants, put in a combined total of
1,73 hours of work on behalf of,
White,who has long been active
in the local clinic's work, notes
that "clinical law, and especially
clinical law practiced on behalf
of the poor, promises to be the
darling not only of our students
but also of the foundations and
the federal government. And the
latter two will doubtless entice all
of us into a mindless and unbe-
coming scramble to spend their
But, he cautions, "it will take
more careful planning and more
thoughtful analysis than anyone
has yet offered to insure that suchf
money is spent in an efficient' and
White says that in his course
students learned "very little sub-
stantive law." Although individual
students learned a great deal from
intensive research on specific
cases, "I am not sure that the
clinic setting is an efficient one
for teaching substantice legal prin-
Nor, White adds, was there much
evidence that the clinical experi-
ence taught students "social
awareness" Some people argue that
'the skin-flinted conservative car
be made into a compassionate lib-
eral by an eight-week or ten-week
exposure to legal aid practice," he
says. "I saw nothing in my stu-.
dents nor have I seen anything in
our volunteer students of past'
years which supports that thesis."'
"It is my impression that the'
quality of legal work is quite un-
related to the student's political
philosophy, and that exposure to
legal aid clients is just as likely
to i einforce a student's negative
views of the poor as it is to alter
those views," White says.-

to like the informal atmosphere

his own admission - and the ma-
jor point of his prepared speech --
that there has been a failure of
leadership in the country, a fail-
ure to lead an attack on the prob-
lems that face the nation.
*Nixon was one main target. In
a press conference before speak-
ing at Hill Auditorium, Ribicoff
said the President's apparently
" successful courting of the "silent
majority" was a hollow political
"The silent majority agrees with
President Nixon and that helps
politically, but that does not solve
any problems," he said. "Educa-
tion, health, pollution are n o t
eliminated as problems by Nix-
Picking up on a major theme-
Democrats have used since Nix-
on's State of the Union message,
Ribicoff complained that "specif-'
ics are lacking. There are no plans
to solve the problems."
Ribicoff managed to be biparti-
san in his attack. "The DemocratsI
have not shown much leadership
either," he s a i d. "It is lacking
from both parties."
Asked about the prospects of
leadership in the '70s, Rubicoff
s a i d he saw Nixon and Agnew
continuing to lead the GOP, while
many Democratic senators - Mc-
Govern, Muskie, Hughes, Nelson
and Phil Hart - appeared to be
contenders for leadership.

Among the programs thatbwould
be affected by an HEW budget
cut is the education school's ur-
ban education program. Instituted
last July 1, the program receives
all of its operating funds-$500,000
-from the federal government,
according to Dean Wilbur Cohen
of the education school.
Cohen, who served as Secretary
of Health, Education and Welfare
under the Johnson administration,
said last night he has contacted
ten members of Congress and
urged them to override the Presi-
Cohen criticized Nixon for turn-
ing the HEW dispute into "an
issue of financial integrity."
"If he was so concerned about
financial integrity, why did he
recommend so much money for
the ABM?" he asked.
In addition to the urban educa-
tion program, federal funding of

search and training programs re-
Dean Myron Wegman of the
public health school expressed
concern last night that a reduc-
tion of the HEWV budget may im-
pose restrictions on both the pres-
ent and future operation of the
school, which is currently receiv-
ing $640,000 from the department.
Even if Congress overrides the
veto, Wegman explained, the Pres-
ident's attitude indicates a prob-
able cutback in the HEW budget
request for the next fiscal year.
Nixon's budget requests for the
1971 fiscal year, which starts June
30, are expected to be submitted
to Congress shortly.

can get Union permission, he adds.
iMiss Kelley and Szpiech say they

the Union bowling alleys and bil-
liard area may stay open longer
to supplement the coffeehouse.

The propriety of the committee's

Students in groups of five or,
six strolledacross campus, view-

joking about the possible meaning
of it all.

here," said one participant buoy-c
antly. One group attempted to

A passerby stopped to point out
that President Robben Fleming
was also affected -candles were
seen in the windows of his South
University Ave. home. The organ- .
isers quickly turned to other tac-
tics, pelting the intruder with a:
barrage of icy cnowballs.
"To North Hall," cried one,
and off they went. Once there,
however, they found they had
company. Uniformed officers were
standing in the windows on three
sides, watching for possible inci-
dents of "trashing."
Women at Betsy Barbour and
Helen Newberry residences dug,
out candles for emergency light-j
ing. "This is fun, this is a r e a l
panic," said one woman guard-I
ing the door. "Lots of the girls
are upstairs telling ghost stories."
In East Quad, students found
other diversions. "East Quad was
blacked out, so we all lit up" quip-
ped one student.
