OPPONENT CONDEMNS SENA TEMEASURE

Criminal bill labeled 'repressive'

BY STEFANY COOPERMAN
Frank Wilkenson, director of the
National Committee Against
Repressive Legislation (NCARL), con-
demned the bill to revise the federal
criminal code and said the legislation
'U' education study
published
The University School of Education
has published a bibliography of
references related to the development
of the study of education at the Univer-
sity during the past century.
"The History of the School of
Education: A Handbook of Sources"
was prepared as part of the School of
Education's centennial celebration of
the establishment, in 1879, of a Chair in
the Science and the Art of Teaching at,°
the University.
The handbook cites some 900 articles,
reports, books and doctoral disser-
tations chronologically by topic as well
as the Michigan Historical Collections'
records and papers pertaining to the
School of Education and former
University Schools.
Copies of the handbook are available
from the School of Education.

violated the "civil liberties of in-
dividuals."
Wilkenson, speaking last Friday in
the home of two local chapter American
Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) mem-
bers, criticized U.S. Senate bill S 1437,
claiming it is more repressive than the
current criminal laws.
"THE BILL is worded in such a way
that basic civil liberties are am-
biguously protected," Wilkenson told
the group of 10 persons.
Wilkenson claimed that under the
proposal, prison sentences and fines
would be much harsher than under the
current criminal code. For example,
the current maximum penalty for non-
violent civil disobedience is a $150 fine
and seven days in prison. Under the
proposed bill, the maximum sentence
would be $100,000 and a three-year
prison sentence, Wilkenson claimed.
Wilkenson said the unclear language
of the bill could lead to unchecked
violations of civil liberties by police, the
FBI and the CIA.
WILKENSON attacked the
legislation, condemning the fact that
lawmakers are trying to include the en-
tire federal criminal code into one bill.
"We all agree that there is a need to
revise the federal criminal code,"
Wilkenson said. "But this omnibus

bill ... poses a. serious threat to our
civil liberties."
Wilkenson also said the legislation
was hastily passed in the U.S. Senate in
January, 1977.
"Many of the Senators had not retur-
ned from the Decbmber break and at no
time during the debate were there more
than eight senators present," Wilken-
son said. He added that the
congressional agenda did not announce
the bill's debate until the day before it
was scheduled.
AS NCARL director, Wilkenson spen-
ds the majority of his time criss-
crossing the country lecturing on
repressive legislation. NCARL was
formed in 1960. The group received
national attention in 1975 when NCARL
helped abolish the House Un-American
Activities Committee.
The NCARL and the ACLU have en-
couraged more than 500 independent
newspapers to oppose the bill, Wilken-
son said. Under the bill, anyone
receiving classified government
documents, such as the Pentagon
Papers, could be accused of a felony,
Wilkenson said.
Most of the task of revising the
federal criminal code is the respon-
sibility of House Judiciary Committee
and the committee chairman, Rep.

Robert Drinan (I)-Mass.). The commit-
tee will soon review the 700-page
document that was originally spon-
sored by Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-
Mass.), and Sen. Strom Thurmond (R-
N.C.).
AT FRIDAY'S talk, Wilkenson
produced a memorandum which he
said was "confidential." The memo,
from Kennedy to Drinan outlined
suggested revisions in the proposal.
Wilkenson claimed the memo proves
Drinan will rewrite the criminal code to
delete some of the civil liberty
violations.
Wilkenson expressed anger in Ken-
nedy's decision to support the
legislation. But the NCARL director
refrained from attacking Kennedy per-
sonally.
Ken Feinberg, Kennedy's chief of
staff, said yesterday in a telephone in-
terview that Kennedy was, well aware
of Wilkenson's displeasure in the bill.
"I am aware of Frank Wilkenson's
criticisms of the bill. However, a com-
prehensive reform of the federal
criminal code is needed," Feinberg
said. "The key word of this issue is
'comprehensive'." A viable reform
requires an omnibus approach."

Carter defends end to treaty

A,

1,

WASHINGTON (Reuter) - The Car-
ter administration went to court
yesterday to defend the President's
power to end the mutual defense treaty
with Taiwan following U.S. recognition
of China.
In papers filed at U.S. District Court
in Washington, Carter sought either
dismissal or a decision without the
delay of a trial of a suit brought by
Republican Senator Barry Golwater.
IF THE court grants the presidential
request, the judge would ,decide the
case quickly on the basis of the written
presentations, rather than requiring a
trial.

Goldwater has challenged the
President's right to abrogate the 1954
treaty without the advice and consent of
Congress. Treaties require a two-thirds
vote of approval by the Senate, but the
Constitution does not mention their
termination.
Administration documents said the
court lacks jurisdiction to decide the
complaint, which the administration
says raised political questions outside
the court's powers.
DEPUTY SECRETARY of State
Warren Christopher, in a sworn af-
fidavit, said the United States and
China had to remove the long-standing

barrier to reconciliation raised by the
treaty, which the Chinese had made
clear was incompatible with nor-
malization of relations.
"It is my judgment a court order in,
tervening with the President's action to
terminate the mutual defense treaty
would seriously damage the
President's capacity to speak and. act
for the United States in the conduct of
its foreign relations, and would disrupt
the process of normalization of
relations with the People's Republic of
China to the detriment of the national
interest of the United States," he said.
'U' Cellar
restructuring
postponed
(Continued from Page 1)
added the board's decision was a
"reasonable way to go. People need to
be consulted on the things that affect
them and their work place," he said.
The union is not happy with the
board's actions, according to Cellar
employee Ralph McKee. "We're not
happy with their decision," he said.
"We still feel it's a negotiable issue, as
a mandatory working-condition item.
We don't understand why they can't
compromise their position on
negotiating," he added. The board is
only allowing "criticism of the new
system," he claimed, and not a voice in
deciding what that system will be.
"I can't see how a reasonable amount
of input can be made in 8-10 days," he
continued. "They've supposedly been
working on this structure for months, so
it would be pretty absurd to think that
we could come up with a similar plan in
such a short period of time." He added
that the union will try to figure out their
next move "in one or two days."
