By LYNN WEINER
"An appeal to law and order should be tempered with ,
justice," said Eric Chester, Grad, in the defense summation
yesterday of his trial for disturbance during the LSA sit-in '
last fall.'
Chester, who is serving as his own lawyer, claimed that
no evidence had been presented which showed he had created
a contention of disturbance.
The jury will receive its final instructions and will delib-

places less reliance on test score

normal admissions.
The large majority of student
on the program are black.
In his memorandum to the BAN
Fleming said the administratio
was unwilling to commit itself t
the 10 per cent enrollment figur
because, he claimed (such an un
dertaking would need financial ai
from outside he University such a

and the availability of obtainin
such monies was uncertain.'
Speaking for the BAM, Darry
Gorman expressed disappointen

"The program which Presiden
F eming will present to the Re

ar financial aid. and does no

n said. "Also the deans, de

The proposal to be submitted t
the Regents by the administra
tion also stipulates :
-That the University doubl
the present enrollment of disad

-That direct investment by th
University in the Opportunit
Awards program be raised fron
$1 million to $3 million within
four years. This money is to b
used for student aid and suppor
tive services for disadvantage
students.

~'erate the verdict tomorrow.
A motion for the disqualifica-
tion of District Judge S. J. Elden
was denied earlier by District
Judge Pieter Thomassen. Chester
had charged that Elden was pre-
judiced against "radicals."
The court quashed a subpoena
that Gov. William Milliken testify
in the trial. Elden accepted a mo-
tion that the governor had other
committments precluding his ap-
pearance in the matter and that
he had no personal knowledge of
h matters pertaining to or material
. to the case.
d- Chester made a motion for a
1o mistrial with objections to the rul-
y ing that Elden was not disquali-
a fied; to the preemptory challeng-
d es; to the indirect questioning of
s the jury; and to the "unfair" re-
n striction of defense questioning.
The defense called to the stand
ts Mayor Robert Harris, Architecture
Prof. Joseph Wehrer, and several
, students who had participated in
n the sit-in. The witnesses testified
that they did not see Chester
break windows, unhinge doors,
n- block janitors, or urge others to do
d so, acts that he had been charged
