The defendants had previously
entered a plea of not guilty, ac-
cording to Stuart Katz, Grad, but
changed their plea for monetary
reasons and because "we have
exhausted our forms of protest."
Katz said the large amount of
money needed to stage a jury trial
would not be worth "the few words
we could say in court."
Charles A. Barr, the defendants
lawyer, said the plea of "no to
contendre" only indicates "the
students conceed they can't win
not that they are guilty."
Although the student trespass-
ing trials have been limited to
"the narrow- forum.of the county
circuit court," said Barr, he said
he feels the protest was success-
ful since the trials of the welfare
mothers have been appealed to
"the larger forums of the federal
Richard Gordon one of the ae-
fendants, said to the court: "I
feel our protest was, political, and
the substance of the protest was
the 200 people who were arrested,
but since the court has broken
that number down into smaller
groups to be tried we have lost the
political impact of 200 people pro-

About 150 people attended a
teach-in on "Militarism and the
University" held by Students for
a Democratic Society in the Un-
ion Ballroom last night.
The teach-in was part of an
SDS program against militar-
ism on campus. The program is
being carried out on campuses
across the nation.
Martin Nicoulas, a writer for
the Movement and former edi-
tor of "Viet Report" said "Even
the older generation is begin-
ning to have doubts about what
it lived for."
"Ourparents went abroad
with the intent of overthrowing
a series of governments whose
leaders espoused a racist ideol-
ogy, used military force, showed
a high dedication to capitalist
ideas and waged wars to support
these," he said. "They are now
seeing the reappearance of this
Nicolaus added, "The task
that faces us is overthrowing
the capitalist system and re-
placing it with our own."
Because this "system relies on
violence and force we can't
overthrow the government with
rallies and teach-ins," he said.
Referring to ROTC, Nicolaus
claimed universities "have been
the breeding grounds for 50
per cent of the officers in the
Officers favor war because it
benefits them, he said. "We
can intervene in a vicious circle
by stopping this program."
Nicolaus also said, due to the
war less money is being spent
on education and, that this has
caused changes in the educa-
The universities have to "adopt
industrial methods" and "are
becoming more like factories."
Tom Horwitz, a member of
SDS at Columbia, said, "ideal-.
ism is a tool that makes you
not deal with reality."
"The . peace movement has
turned into a war movement
and there is no room for ideal-
ism in a war," h, said.
"We can't sit here and think
about abstract ideals when we
know this place is rotten, he
said. "We have to go out and
fight along with the people."
"When thet ampus movement
ties in with the people's move-
ment you can't cut it off," he
Earlier Jim Mellen, a region-
al SDS worker, said, "The U.S.
economy is a monopoly economy
controlled by only a few com-
"Capitalism," he said, "needs
high military technology and
high military spending to ab-
sorb surplus capital."
Another place surplus capi-
tal is spent is in education. "The
university is, now used to make
people to be productive units,"
"College also delays entrance
of students into the labor force,"
he said, reducing its size. The
fact that it is handling human
beings doesn't bother capitalism.

The total rent which the Ro-
sen's put into escrow was $300.,
If the jury had voted in favor of
Arbor Management they would
have received this total plus twen-
ty-five dollars in court costs, This,
comes to a sum that is presumably;
far less than the money spent on
Though members of the steer-
ing committee felt this particular
case was a rather minor one and
did not contain as many code via-
latio's and unremedied complains
as others, it ended up carrying
more weight than was suspected,
said Dale Berry, Grad, a member
:f the steering committee.
Berry felt that the case had
become a precedent. "Specifically
the verdict shows there is a great
deal of sympathy for the strike
in the community at large. For the
rent strike as a Whole indicates
that people can strike. They will
be brought into court and then
receive appropriate rent reduc-
tions," he added. .
"The jury reduced the Rosen's
rent ($20 in total) because they
didn't feel Kloian was deservant
of $150 a month," Berry said.
Rosen said, "We're pretty happy
with the verdict." He felt that the
procedure had taken up a lot of
time and money on the part of the
landlords while his own expenses
had been paid throuhg the R e n t
At the beginning of the strike,
according to Rosen, he had de-
posited 10 per cent of his rent
or $15 into the' fund. In receiving
the twenty dollar reduction from
.his own rent he made five dollars.
He felt he "helped to establish a.
very important precedent and a
very important victory for the

constructively make change."
