is extremely vague. He notes it condemns "indecency in public places"
but fails to distinguish between different public places, "A theatre is
hardly a street corner," he says.
In New York City. Richard Schechner. producer of "Dionysus in
69" said "to call our play obscene is to say an elephant can fly."
"We have had no obscenity trouble in New York and further-
more obscenity laws are obscene. The play is doing very well here.
"We'd like to play Dionysus at. more colleges," he added.
Priscilla Smith and McDermitt were elected by the other cast
members to represent the company in court.
Chief assistant prosecutor Casper Cast motioned the court forfeit
the bonds of the other eight defendants and issue bench warrants for
their absence from court.
However, Thomassen denied the motion, presumably because the
defendants were arrested for the identical offense and any two could
represent the others.
"The court was eminently fair on this matter recognizing the
hardship if they went ahead and forfeited the bonds." said ,Darrow.
After Cast's motion, Darrow motioned the examination be ad-
jurned and the court decide the case.

while the Rev. Dennis Moloney
and the Rev. Bernard Meyer
engaged in dialogue and an-
swered questions outside.
The last hour of the annual
stockholders' m e e t i n g was
reserved for speeches by repre-
sentative protesters and Ger-
stacker's reply to their accusa-
The first speaker was the Rev.
John Bailey, who called Dow
Chemical "a merchant of
death." He also said that Dow's
continued manufacturing of na-
palm will put the company in
the same position as DuPont
after Worlfl War II.
Bailey said that U.S. usage of
napalm was a violation of the
Hague Conference, which bans
weapons that cause unnecessary
suffering. Brailey also berated
Dow for its manufacturing of a
poison gas which causes hem-
orraging, blindness and damage
to the nerve center.
Dr. Theodore Tapper, a pedi-
atrician representing the Chi-
cago medical committee for
Human Rights was the second
speaker. He worked in Vietnam
during the spring of 1967. Tap-
per begged the stockholders not
to be "guilty of the crime of
Tapper pleaded with Ger-
stacker as a "good Christian" to
urge his company to make al
moral decision. He then cau-
tioned the stockholders that,
"when people cannot deal in
rational dialogue, then more
dramatic acts bypassing non-
violence must take the place of
persuation. We have reached
this mark once before."
The next speaker was Father
O'Rourke., who told the stock-
holders, "We must stop your
company" because of its "exul-

tation of profit and property
over people."
Gerstacker began his address
by stating, "I have a hard time
trying to stay calm when I hear
the mixture of unthruths and
half truth these people have
Gerstacker continued, "Don't
accuse us of not making a moral
decision. We have, but you don't
like it. I think yqu are abso-
lutely wrong. Of course napalm
harms people; that's why it's
In reply to Dr. Tapper's
charge, and a statement re-
leased by Students For a Dem-
p6atic Society that one million
children have been burned by
napalm in Vietnam over a five
year period, Gerstacker cited the
findings of a Midland physician
recently returned from Viet-
The physician said that the
few cases of victims suffering
from burns had received them
as accidents from gasoline
stoves and were not the result
of napalm bombings.
Gerstacker also cited the find-
ings of Dow's canvassing of 100
physicians recently returning
from Vietnam. He said that
they reported only two cases of
victims suffering from napalm
burnings-on the southern tip
of South Vietnam.
At one point Gerstacker de-
nied that TORDON, a powerful
herbicide produced by Dow, was
used in Vietnam. ,
But later Gerstacker defended
TORDON, saying that in those
areas In Vietnam where the
chemical has been used, new
crops will grow better. "We are
proud of TORDON' he asserted.
Gerstacker a d j o u r n e d the
meeting with a final word to
the protesting speakers. "I think

you people should be ashamed
of yourselves as ministers and
priests for asking our compan
to deny to its government, duly
elected by the majority of the
people, the supplies it needs t
win the war."
As the stockholders left the
meeting, they were jeered am
cheered by people displaying
pro- and anti-Vietnam and na
palm slogans and signs.

demonstrators from becoming
