Coon says a "significant propor-
tion" of the committee has secur-
ity clearance to deal with class-
ified information.
Even though the committee de-
layed acting during the summer
because they "hesitated to make
decisions when all members were
not present," the chairman ex-
plains "Once standards are set,

chairman of the electrical engin-

John G. Pedley of the classical

ell Kelly of the psychology depart-

of the music school, Prof. Warren
E. Miller of the political science
department, and Prof. Joseph K.
Yamagiwa of the far eastern
studies department.
The faculty members were elect-
ed to their positions by the Senate
Assembly after the Senate Advis-
ory Committee on University Af-
fairs placed their names in nom-
ination. Prof. Irving M. Copt,
chairman of SACUA, says the
nominations were made "after
consulting with the men, involved
and being assured they were
neither against all classified re-
search nor in favor of all classi-
fied research."
Copiadds allthe men "feel
bound by the guidelines of the
Elderfield Report." The SACUA
chairman dispels fears that some
members of the committee are in-
volved in a conflict of interest on
the committee because of p a d' t
reception of research grants.
"That's like saying a man can't

The plea is accepted at the dis-
cretion of the court. It is usually
accepted and allowed in anti-
trust cases and traffic violations
where the defendent does not
want to plead guilty and thus be
susceptible to further trial based
upon his admission of guilt by
entering a plea of guilty.
However, the students' rationale
for making the plea would be to
uphold their principles of what
they believe right in a context
of civil justice that clearly defines
them as wrong. Should Elden
wake up tomorrow feeling as mor-
ally dedicated to the absoluteness
of justice as the students f e e 1
towards the welfare mothers'
cause, he may decide that such a
plea circumvents the political is-
sue - and thus, he may not :ac-
cept it.
If Elden denies the plea, most
of those tomorrow -- perhaps as
many as 150 of the 242 - will
stand mute when Elden asks them
for their plea. Standing mute is
treated as though a plea of not
guilty has been entered, but it ,
has legal advantages.
Before asking for the plea, Eld-

Elden has said. If he remains
mute, he is not acknowledging it
and can thus' challenge it later
during the trial as the basis for
More specifically, by remaining
mute the defendent has the abil-4
Ity to challenge an inadequacy in
the warrant for his arrest - if,
in fact, such any inadequacy exists.
More than 99 per cent of the time,
the warrant is correctly written
and delivered, but legally an in-
adequate warrant that can be
challenged could be grounds for so
new trial
No matter what the verdict for
each person, the right to appeal to
circuit court is de novo - grant-
ed without grounds. All cases in
municipal court are automatically
granted an appeal in circuit court.
A final mitigating factor in how4
the students plea is the obvious
but unwritten fact that those who
plead guilty usually receive a less
stringent sentence than those who
plead not guilty and, are later
found guilty. Whether or. not this
age-old custom of the American
jurisprudence is moral .s irrele-
vant. One needs 'only to review
those convicted during the Detroit
riots. to realize its impact. Those
who pleaded guilty to charges
were sentenced to jail with the
time they had already been in jail
applicable to t h e i r sentence+
Others were sentenced anew with *
no jail-days to !their credit.
The final decision to prosecute
is up to Prosecutor William Del-
hey. A slew of verbal bogs from
city officials has been generated
in the last two weeks, but a state-
ment by one official Is probably,
still ringing in the ears of every-
one who appears in court today.
The statement, delivered most
vehmently by County supervisor
and mayor of Ypsilanti John Bur-
ton, called on the county to dis-
miss all charges pressed against
those in the demonstrations. He
was seconded by several Ann Ar-
bor city council members and
congratulated by Ann Arbor May-
or Wendell Hulcher.
A resolution by the supervisor
asking that charges be dropped
would probably politically force
Delhey to drop the charges. This
is, however, highly unlikely. At
the supervisors meeting Monday,
the mood was not one that would
bring about the calling of amnesty.
Nevertheless, the call was made
by a high county official and it
may influence Elden's sentencing
or even a jury's verdict.4

Unfortunately for those who
plead not guilty, trial dates are
expected to be set before the sen-
tencirig dates of those who plead
guilty. Thus, those who stand
mute or plead not guilty will not
be allowed the perogative to
change their plea based upon the
severity in sentencing those who
plead guilty. a
