Attorney begins final
defense summation'

workings of government could
all be fooled, tricked and used."
Weinglass repeatedly insisted
that the defendants had nothing'
to fear from the truth. "My clients
wouldn't change a :single garment
to curry your favor," he said.
"That's the way they are, and,
they want you to judge them as
they are."~
Weinglass spent much of his
summation- which will continue
this morning-re-examining the
government's witnesses.
Five Chicago police department
youth corps officers provided "40
per cent of the testimony," Wein-
glass claimed. "These officers had
never been trained in, or had any
experience in, under cover work
before the convention, and they
took no notes while observing de-
fendants in Lincoln Park," he
said. Now, 15 months later, they
have "instant recall, every word
verbatum," Weinglass said. "That's
absolutely incredible.",
Weinglass blasted other under-
cover agents, who went to legal
political meetings, for the inaccu-
racy of their reporting on what
was said there, and claimed they

that the jury will begin its deli-
beration early tomorrow and will
return its verdict this weekend,
the groups are tentatively sched-
uling a kick-off march for Sun-
day night following the Huey New-
ton benefit.
If the verdict is returned after
Sunday, however, the march will
begin at 8 p.m. the same day.
The initial march will begin
near central campus and will ter-
minate at the Washtenaw County
Bldg. where a rally will be held.
On the day following the rally,
the committee will encourage peo-
ple to return to the County Bldg.
for a day-long "demonstration
against political repression and
against the inequitable, institu-
tinonally biased legal system of
America," says Spears.
Local groups will also sponsor a
free program at Canterbury House
tonight at 7:30. The program will
include entertainment, newsreel
films, and taped and live inter-
views of some of the "conspirators"
to move people to organized action,
according to sponsors of the ac-

usually reported the defendants'
statements out of context. Such
witnesses, he said, are counted for
25-30 per cent of the prosecution's
The defense attorney also cast
doubt upon the evidence of police
intelligence division agents. "These
are people engaged professionally
in the ferreting out and prosecu-
tion of so-called subversives," he
He also pointed out that the
testimony of two intelligence of-
ficers had Rennie Davis in two
place miles apart within minutes
of each other.
Earlier yesterday, Schultz com-]
pleted his closing arguments to
the jury.
He claimed tippies Jerry Rubin
and Abbie Hoffman were madmen
who planned "nude-ins,. body
painting, and public fornication"
in Lincoln Park.

autonomy because the obligation

After yesterday's meeting some
committee members said they were
pleased with the letter but ex-
pressed concern for the position
Fleming is in.
"It's a very good letter, but it's
easier for us to pass aresolution
than it is for him to act on it,"
said Prof. Joseph Wehrer, SRC
chairman. "I think President
Fleming is basically in agreement
with us. If he doesn't go along
with us, it would be because it's
not a responsible thing to do."
"He's under a lot of pressure
from people who think the stu-
dents are getting away with mur-
der," Wehrer added.
History, Prof. Arthur Mendel,
author of the original draft of the
letter, said he hoped it would help
Fleming.. -
"If this kind of statement could
gain wide faculty support, it would
influence Fleming, in agreement
with his own views, and allow him
to plead a little stronger case in
"I urge all faculty members to
be heard-to send individual let-
ters to President Fleming," Men-
del added.

cided that it would be difficult to
distinguish between the two."
Fleming said agreement was still
possible. "It's difficult because we
obviously have some basic points of
disagreement," he added.
Law Prof. Robert Knauss, vice-
chairman of the Senate Advisory
Committe on University Affairs
(SACUA) later said, "As we left
last week's meeting I thought we
had some agreement. Today we
lost ground."
"Both parties are expressing a
verbal disagreement," Knauss said.
"What finally happens really de-
pends on the person we get as
vice president and on the people
who will work with him." Knauss
added that practically speaking,
final authority would rest with the
president and the Regents in any
The question of student control
over the OSS has been one of the
key isues in the bylaws dispute.
A set of bylaws proposed last
June by an ad hoc student-faculty
committee recommended that the
board "set general policy for the
However, in a bylaw draft pro-
posed last month by the Regents,
the section of OSS called for "The
Board and the Vice President for
Student Services (to) jointly set
policy for OSS"
Since that time, SGC has
threatened to disrupt Regents'
meetings in support of their de-
mand that the board have sole
authority over OSS, as stipulated
in the student-faculty draft.
McLaughlin suggested one pos-
sibility for SGC action on the is-
sue at tonight's meeting. "We
might pass our own bylaws and
observe them," he said. "We'll just
hassle for a while and see if we
can get something to work."
SGC member Bob Hirshon posed
another possibility. "Actually, the
faculty and students are in agree-
ment on the basics in this dispute.
If we could sit down with the fac-
ulty and draft a joint set of by-
laws to follow, Fleming would be
in a difficult position," he said.

Graduate Assembly last night
passed a resolution urging Presi-
dent Robben Fleming not to sub-
mit the names of students in-
volved in the LSA sit-in Sept. 25
to state authorities.
In another motion, GA con-
demned persons who hinder the
right of a student to interview
prospective employers.
The sit-in resolution, which was
carried by a large majority of
those present, is an adaptation of
one passed earlier yesterday by
the Social Work Student Union.
The motion urges Fleming to

night on bonds ranging from $5

ances" from state authorities, and
states in part that submitting such
names is "ansactionwhich would
aid politicians in their efforts to
unduly influence university af-
fairs and jeopardize state finan-
cial aid to these students."
The motion also urges Fleming,
to have the University "test the
constitutionality" of the state "by
refusing to implementit and by
bringing the case before the
During discussion before the
motion was passed, one represent-
ative expressed the opinion that
"someone's trying to test the Uni-
versity," as the students' names
are available from the courts and
from newspapers.

"I think we should test right
back," the student continued. "We
should hold out as long as we
The motion passed by GA states
in part that "every student in this
community should be free to in-
terview any prospective employer
without fear of hindrance for any
purpose whatsoever."
A second prong of the resolution
charges any person who "obstructs
or hinders" a student from speak-
ing with another with a "gross'
violation of the principles for
which Graduate Assembly stands."
In other action GA chose seven
representatives to serve on the
Senate Assembly's academic af-
fairs committee during its discus-
sion of the teaching fellows' at-
tempts to unionize.
