programs for minority students.
He said that $1.5 million would be
needed next year just to maintain
such programs as the Opportunity
Awards at present levels.
Several people in the audience
rose to speak after Spurr's pre-
sentation. Discussions between
them, Spurr and Fleming revolved
around the issues of finances,
prioritiestat the University and
the power of the Legislature to
control University affairs.
At one point, a student said that
the Regents "knew very well how
to make money." He referred to
their jobs and said "Where do you
work, Regents? Regent Otis Smith,
you work for GM, don't you?"
Angered by the taunting com-
ment, Smith burst out, "You all
think you're so goddamn smart,
and you don't know anything." He
went on to tell the audience that
"this University is composed of
all kinds of people with all kinds
of demands, each which have to

came after the testimony of pro-
secution witnesses and other wit-
nesses for defense.
The trial itself was marked by
many interruptions, objections,
and outbursts. At one point on
Tuesday, Elden had to clear the
court of spectators ,and on sev-
eral occasions, the jury was sent
from the room while Van Der
Hout asked questions or was giv-
en warnings by Elden.
Prosecuting Attorney Jerome
Farmer's case followed the pat-
tern most of the LSA sit-in cases
have taken in trying to convict the
defendant of "creating or incit-
ing a contention or disturbance."
However, testimony was limited
by Elden for the first time in the
LSA sit-in trials, to what occurred
in and around the LSA Bldg. the
night of the sit-in.
Elden sustained objections and
warned Van Der Hout not to
bring his political issues of re-
pression into the trial. Van Der
Hout emphasized the point that
he as an individual was not in-
volved in the specific incidents cit-
ed by the prosecution as conten-
The six-man jury deliberated for
over three hours, before reach-
ing the verdict of "not guilty."
During that time they re-entered
the courtroom twice to ask ques-
tions on the nature of the conten-
At the trials beginning, Van Der
Hout asked Elden to disqualify
himself; and after the prosecution
witnesses. he asked for a directed
verdict of "not guilty" on t h e
grounds that the prosecution had
not proved him guilty. Both mo-
tions were denied.
Farmer, on Tuesday, after the
prosecution's witnesses were fin-
ished, had been granted a motion
to sequester the defense witnesses,
but several sat through testimony
yesterday morning. On the grounds
that the witnesses had not been,
properly sequested, he asked f o r
a mistrial, late in the presentation
of defense testimony. The request
was not acted on.
One witness for the defense was
dismissed by Van Der Hout after
the judge warned him that any-
thing he said in court could be
used against him in his own pend-
ing LSA sit-in trial.
However, architecture Prof. Jos-
eph Wehrer, chairman of the Sen-
ate Assembly's Student Relations
Committee, who also has his sit-
in trial pending, testified despite,
a similar warning.
Several of Van Der Hout's
twelve defense witnesses directly
contradicted testimony of Farmer's
five witnesses, and in his instruc-
tions to the jury, Elden emphasiz-
ed that the "credibility" of the
witnesses had bearing in the jury's!
The trial was the third in which
defendants have been acquitted,
and the first in which a defendant
has earned his own acquittal by
acting as his own lawyer.

Stare at your walls.
Ycu might learn something for a change.
Something about learning and change. Thinking and
participating. Even about film-making and quantum
physics. It's not done with mirrors but with charts.
Three of them.
It's asking a lot of three charts to undo all the harm done
by university education. You have to undo most of it.
But the charts can help.
The charts, and an accompanying handbook (to ease your
transition from print) now comprise a BLUEPRINTFOR
COUNTER EDUCATION. The liberated chart watcher sees
before him the crisis of western civilization in a pattern of
names, concepts and events configured around the most
radical members of today's intellectual and artistic
vanguard-from Marcuse and McLuhan to Eldridge Cleaver
and John Lennon. From there on, everything becomes
self-evident. Or unintelligible.
Maurice Stein and Larry Miller, who created the charts,
are two deeply committed radicals now affiliated with the
California Institute of the Arts in Los Angeles. Marshall
Henrichs, who designed them, is now making a movie of
his own screenplay. Where are you?
