Democratic Society and a former Universityactivist, together with
Jerry Rubin, self-styled Yippie revolutionist, burned subpoenas to
appear before the House Committee on Un-Amercian Activities

University of California's Berkeley campus represented their
contempt for HUAC. Also that Monday, the Soviet Union agreed in

Heavy booty
A Louisiana bank robber may not have had much sense when he
walked into the Bank of New Orleans Thursday and announced a hold-
up, but he sure had.a lot of cents when he left. The robber ordered a
teller to hand over a bulging money bag he spotted on a table. But he
was surprised to find he had to struggle to lug the bag out the door as
he escaped: the bag was full of pennies. Total loot for his efforts: $50.
Like they say, crime doesn't pay.
Guilty as charged
You've got to give Dennis Wright credit. For 18 months, that's just
what scores of London stores have been doing. Wright, 28, used a sheaf
of stolen credit cards for a shopping spree and ended up setting a
record at London's Old Bailey Criminal Court. He finally pleaded
guilty to 20 theft charges and asked that 806 other crimes ''be taken
into consideration." He was sentenced to four years in prison. It was
the largest number of offenses ever listed against one person at the
Old Bailey, which has been in business for 900 years. Asking that
uncharged offenses be considered is similar to plea bargaining and is
used to clear police records and court calendars.

Murder law ruled

'bread' air
By The Associated Press
A small but steadily growing number'
of supermarkets are offering shoppers
the opportunity to do their banking
where they do their buying and a new
study indicates that consumers - with
some reservations - like the idea.-
Some of the in-store electronic funds,
transfer (EFT) systems make it easier
for customers to cash checks to pay for
groceries. Others offer a complete
range of banking services through,
automatic cash machines.
A STUDY conducted for the Food
Marketing Institute (FMI) and the
Bank Administration Institute (BAI),
showed that customers who used the
systems were generally satisfied,
although they reported some dif-
ficulties with machine breakdowns.-
Non-users, in contrast, were apathetic
and saw little need for the card-
operated services.
"A clear need exists for effective
backup procedures," said the survey,
prepared by Willard Bishop, Consulting
Economists of Barrington, Ill. "Without
adequate backup, customers are slow
to build confidence in the system. In
addition, the absence of backup can
discourage regular use of the service
because there is considerable customer
inconvenience accompanying the long
interruptions in service."
The whole subject of electronic
money handling has come under,
scrutiny by Congress. Legislation is
pending to establish safeguards for
consumers by limiting customer
liability for unauthorized withdrawals.
AT PRESENT, most of the automatic
terminals are located just outside
financial institutions, but, where state
law permits, they are spreading to
shopping centers and other non-
banking areas.
The most frequently used systems in
supermarkets are the simplest. They
permit a customer to obtain
authorization for cashing a check by in-
serting the check, a personal iden-
tification number and a plastic card in
an electronic terminal. Seventy-four
per cent or almost three-fourths of the
cardholders surveyed in the FMI and
BAI study said they used the check-
cashing service. Sixty-two per cent of
the card users said they had no
problems with the system: the rest
reported problems ranging from
broken machines to forgotten iden-
tification numbers.
"The primary benefit of this service
to the customer was to speed up service
at the checkout," the survey found. It
also showed that-consumers wouldlike
a universal check-cashing card that
would permit them to cash checks in all
stores with a single piece of plastic. A
second kind of EFT system offered by
supermarkets allows customers to con-
duct banking transactions with the aid
of a clerk. Cardholders can cash
checks, withdraw or deposit money and
transfer funds from one account to
SIXTY-EIGHT per cent of the car-

t banking:
id butter,
dholders surveyed said they used this
system. They said they liked being ab-
le to do their banking outside regular
banking hours and avoid trips to the
bank. Asked what, if anything, they dis-
liked about the system, customers most
often mentioned operating problems -
either with the machines or the person-
nel - and delays.
"The major opportunity for im-
provement relates to the lines and
delays occurring at the courtesy
booth," the survey concluded. "This
congestion appears even at relatively
low transaction volumes and is a source
of considerable frustration."
Automatic tellers, also known as cash
machines, drew the fewest users. Only
53 per cent of cardholders surveyed
said they had used them. Forty-one per
cent of the users expressed specific
dislikes ranging from system malfun-
ctions to the lack of personal contact.
TWENTY-FI E per cent or one-
fourth of all cardholders said they had
trouble remembering their personal
identification number; 16 per cent said
they were concerned about making
deposits via the automatic tellers since
they did not have immediate access to
the money they had put in their accoun-

LANSING (UPI) - Separate
Michigan Court of Appeals panels ruled
yesterday Michigan's felony murder
law does not discriminate unduly
against men in rape cases and fits in
with the state's new sexual assault
In both cases, the appeals court said a
the state legislature did not intend to
change the murder law when it ap-
proved a new statute governing sexual
assaults which dropped the term
"rape" and replaced it with "first
degree criminal sexual conduct."
THAT LAW TOOK effect April 1,
In the murder statute, a mandatory
life prison term is provided for persons
convicted of rape and murder.
However, defendants Jeffery Terry
in a Macomb County Circuit Court case
and Lee McDonald in Wayne County
argued before the appeals court that
the new sexual assault law, by striking

the term "rape," abolished the rape-
murder provisions of the felony murder
TERRY WAS convicted of first
degree murder and McDonald was
found guilty but mentally ill of first
degree murder.'In both cases, the vic-
tims were 14-year-old girls.
" The appeals court panels affirmed
these convictions.
"We do not believe that in enacting
the crim ;11 sexual conduct statute the
legislature intended to repeal or modify
the felony murder statute," the appeals
court said.
"IF THE legislature had wished to
modify the felony murder statute so as
to provide that a charge should
describe the offense of criminal sexual
conduct rather than rape, it would have
been a simple matter to so provide in
the statute."
The appeals court also rejected Mc-
Donald's contention that the current
legal frame violates equal protection
standards because only males can be
convicted of felony murder - or first
degree murder - in a rape case.
Only males can rape; thecourt said,
and the legislature's decision that rape
is more dangerous to human life than
other forms of sexual assault is sound.
