Berkeley Club Protests Totalitarianism
By SHARON MJUSkOVITZ
Ann Arbor Police arrested five
residents of East Quardangle early
Thursday morning for the al-
leged theft of 1200 trays from
the quadrangle dining rooms.
The quadrangle business office
valued replacement of the missing
trays at approximately $3000.
The dining rooms had been us-
ing military surplus trays since
the disappearance was discovered
Wednesday morning, and, though
a search of the building failed to
turn up the missing trays, they
were later found in the basement,
directly below the kitchen.
James Gilbert, '64E, David Cun-
ningham, '63E, Robert Montgo-
ery, '62, Fred Gelesko, '64E, and
Thomas Groff, '63E, were arraign-
ed before Municipal Judge James
Gilbert and Cunningham, who
had been apprehended in the
kitchen, pleaded guilty and were
charged with illegal entry; the
others stood mute but were charg-
ed 'with aiding and abetting.
The men said that they had
only taken the trays as a prank,
that they had never actually in-
tended to keep them.
City police concealed a detectiv
"in the quad kitchen early Tus
day morning, after learning that
another attempt was to be made
to remove the trays. At 3:30 a.n-.
he apprehended two masked men
roaming about the kitchen, ap-
parently attempting to steal more
Entered with Key
The detective reported that the
two men had entered the kitchen
with a master key they had made.
All five men were released on
bond and will be tried in Muni-
cipal Court next Thursday after-
Assistant Dean of Men John
Bingley said that they will go
before Joint Judiciary Council af-
ter Thursday's court action.
The literary college steering
committee is dicussing the possi-
bility of extending the final exam
period to allow some time to study
before exams begin.
A two week exam period would
allow time for a week "reading
period." This would be used to
study and integrate the material
learned during the semester.
As a result there would be only
one week for exams instead of the
present week and a half. However,
the steering committee felt that
students would not mind having a
tighter exam schedule if they had
a week before hand to study.
They also suggested the possi-
bility of a three day "reading per-
iod" and then a staggered exam
schedule. This suggestion calls for
three days of exams and then one
day with no exams. Therefore no
student can have more than three
days of exams in a row, and his
chances of having all his exams
clumped together are reduced.

Acts Out German Cou rt
By CAROLINE DOW
A watch, a wife, and an honest man played the key roles in a
conviction at a mock trial in Hutchins Hall Thursday.
A living example for Prof. B. J. George's seminar in Comparative
Criminal Law, the proceedings followed German court. law, demon-
strating the differences between German and American courts.
Tried for Theft
Two men were tried at the proceeding which concerned a stolen
watch. The robber was convicted on evidence of his fingerprints, an-
other man's story and his wife's refusal, on hearing the penalty
for perjury, to alibi for him.
In West Germany a man is innocent unless proven guilty, but
there are strict rules on the admission of evidence. Hearsay and non-
testimony are admitted.
Choose Lay Judges
Two lay judges chosen in the same method as an American jury
sit with equal power as one professional judge. The three decide both
the guilt and the sentence of the defendants as opposed to the Ameri-
can system where the jury decides the case and the judge giving the
Procedure is inquisitorial rather than adversary, mock court
prosecutor Horst Niebler, '64L, said. As the prosecutor is responsible
for presenting favorable as well as incriminating evidence, the judges
ask most of the questions.
In addition there are no histrionics in the court room, he said.
Both the judge and the prosecutor have lifetime appointments and see
no need for dramatics to hold their jobs
