CHICAGO-A free-for-all between "The Conspiracy" and
S. marshals broke out at the close of yesterday's session of
t e Chicago 7 trial as Judge Julius Hoffman revoked bail for
defendant David T. Dellinger and ordered the 54-year-old
pacifist to jail.
Hoffman cited Dellinger's "vile and insulting" inter-
ruptions of court proceedings, referring specifically to an out-

(SACUA) yesterday con- '
demned recent vandalism at
the University and said it
would not hesitate to recom-
mend strengthening Univer-
sity disciplinary procedures if
the present ones prove inade-
quate.
The statement approved unani-
mously at a special meeting of the
faculty executive committee, came
just one day after President Rob-
ben Fleming announced a three-
point disciplinary program aimed
at persons involved in recent dis-
ruptions at the University.
SACUA's statement expressed a
concern about "the recent series
of events involving violent tactics
by a few persons at the Univer-
sity." In an apparent expression
of concern with the harassment
of corporation and military re-
cruiters over the last two weeks.
the release called on the Univer-
sity community to reaffirm sup-
port and enforcement of the prin-
ciple of academic freedom.
The special session was called
by SACUA Chairman J o s e p h
Payne. who said the group was

The Student Mobilization Com-
mittee last night continued to plan
for the National Student Anti-
war Conference scheduled for Feb.
S14 in Cleveland,
As of last night, about 40 stu-
dents from the Ann Arbor area
had signed up to go to the con-
ference aimed at revitalizing the
anti-war movement.
The two problems to be discuss-
ed at the conference, according to
Debbie Bustin, SMC chairman, are
the "relevance of issues other than
Vietnam and the possibility of
conducting the anti-war move-
ment from the standpoint of anti-

of wanting to end the war now,"
Mrs. Bustin added. But she also

imperialism."
The conference will draw an es-
timated 1500 people, but leaders at
several localities still hope to draw
between 3000 and 4000 if the
weather is good.
The conference is expected to
include representatives from sev-
eral organizations including the
Vietnam Moratorium Committee,
SDS and many other anti-war
groups.

Thirteen of the 16 persons fac-
ing charges have been identified
as literary college students and
their names will be given to LSA
Dean William Hays for possible
disciplinary action.
Fleming emphasized that trying
students by both the civil courts
and the literary college does n o t
constitute double jeopardy, how-
ever.
"The law is absolutely, irrevoc-
ably clear that there is no double
jeopardy," Fleming said. ,"We've
researched it in the statutes and
I can cite the statute i you
want."
Defending this position, Flenm-
ing also cited cases at Columbia
and Berkeley where demonstra-
tors had been prosecuted in both
civil courts and university disci-
plinary bodies.
In response to a question sug-
gesting that Fleming's current
stance might represent a change
from his position last summer on
penalizing students, the president
vigorously denied the charge.
Last July Fleming had criticized
the State Legislature for passing
a bill that would automatically
cut off financial aidto any stu-
dent convicted in a campus dis-
turbance. Such action would con-
stitute "a double penalty," f a r

Education school Dean Wilbur Cohen,
under fire last night from education stu-
dents on a number of issues, hinted he
may make major personnel changes in the
school's administration.
Speaking at a meeting with about 30
members of Students for Educational In-
novation, the school's official student gov-
ernment, Cohen said he has interviewed
three persons for a high administrative
position, probably an associate deanship.
He said each candidate has turned down
the job offer, however.
A student then questioned Cohen on why
Associate Dean Charles Lehmann and As-
sistant Dean Lowell Beach were still on the
school's administrative staff, charging
them both with lack of imagination,
originality and rapport with students.

His first complaint was that there were
far too manly students in the education
school to permit quality education. But
before he could continue further, Jim
Buntin, head of the black caucus at the
education school, interrupted to suggest
a moratorium on the admission of white
studenits until the number of black stu-
dents was increased to 20 per cent.
Cohen said black admissions could be
increased only over the long run because
it is necessary to eliminate other programs
in order to release the resources for ac-
companying tutorial services. He said he
did not intend to rush into new projects
for which administrative resources to do
them well do not exist.
Criticism was also levelled at Director
of Urban Education Leonard Sain, re.-
cently appointed full professor from in-

of Detroit, she felt that University edu-
cation courses, particularly in methods,
did not adequately prepare her to teach
in these areas.
"With the present system of education,
we don't want to go to Detroit. We're more
a detriment than a help," she said.
Cohen responded that all education
courses including the methods course must
answer to very general needs. The girl
suggested more specialized classes be pro-
vided, but Cohen did not answer.
Students sugegsted that planning and
decision-making committees be given a
specific time limit to reach their con-
clusion so that committee reports do not
drag on for years. Cohen said he would
attempt to implement the idea.
Cohen mentioned that when he came to
the education school last summer, he
