PROGRAM IN EUROPE
U' offers summer abroad study trips
By PAUL RUSKIN
The University, in conjunction
with Sarah Lawrence College, will
co-sponsor its first summer study
abroad program this year.
The program offers six-weekI
courses in four European cities:
Paris, London, Lacoste - a small
Medieval town in the French Alps
-and Florence. The courses will
be taught by faculty members
from the University and Sarah
Courses offered in Florence en-
compass Renaissance art and cul-
ture, Italian history and Italian

Trinkaus will discuss the emer-
gence of Florence as a leading
Medieval economic 'and cultural
center and will examine the ma-
jor new attitudes in the humani-
ties which have their roots'in this
small Tuscan town.
The program in Paris is spe-
cifically designed to meet the
needs of individual students, ac-
cording to its director, French
Prof. Guy Mermier. Mermier said

The Lacoste program differsI
from the other three in that it of-
fers studio courses in sculpture,

making and photography. The lo-
cation is well suited to sculpture+
and painting, with local stone pro-
viding excellent material for
sculptures and local scenery fas-
cinating enough to have attracted
such masters as Cezanne, Van
Gogh, Gauguin, Picasso as well
as many lesser known artists.
Trinkaus hopes that local resi-
dents friendly to visiting artists
will render the atmosphere con-
ducive to the integration of his
students into community life.
The cost of the London, Flor-
ence, and Paris programs is $800
plus transportation to Europe. The
Lacoste program costs $1,000 plus
transportation. No scholarships
are available this year, but Train-
kus hopes that if the program is
successful, scholarship m o n e y
might be found in future years.
Applications are processed at
Sarah Lawrence, but University
students can obtain and submit
applications at the Study Abroad
Office, 1058 L.S.A.
The program is geared mainly
for undergraduates, who can re-
ceive up to six credits, but this
year there will also be room in
Florence for four or five gradu-
ate students who read Latin or
Italian. Graduate students will
participate in individual research,
utilizing various manuscripts or

gan from Sarah Lawrence this
year, claims that the summer pro-

there since its inception in 1957.
He says that students find the

The Mansfield - Scott amend-
ment is expected to be a rallying
point in the Senate for liberals
anxious to stave off much more
restrictive anti-busing measures.
The Senate is confronted with
more than a dozen amendments
designed to ban or cut down on
busing of school children to
achieve racial desegregation.

variety of conseqeunces. If found
guilty, the time they have spent
in jail is credited to their sen-
tence. Often, though, they are
sentenced to a lesser term than
they have already spent behind
bars. They are then immediate-
ly released, but with nothing to
show for weeks and often months
of wasted time.
If found innocent, as many of
them are, individuals often lose
their jobs and their friends, and
too frequently witness the break-up
of their families as well.
In their struggle to alleviate the
burden created by the backlog of
cases, the courts have witnessed
the widespread adoption of "plea-
bargaining" or "plea copping."
In plea copping, the defendant
agrees to plead guilty to a charge
less serious than that under which
he or she was originally arrested.
In return for the guilty plea,
prosecuting attorneys will often
agree to ask the judge for leniency.
In many cases, however, defend-
ants will cop pleas simply for the
sake of getting out of jail-even
if they are innocent.
As one local attorney argues,
"If a guy is going to get a $1001
fine and probation in a ten minute
hearing the day after he is arrest-
ed if he pleads guilty to a mis-
demeanor, why should he wait in
jail a year and a half for his case
to come to trial, even if he's
"If you didn't have plea-bar-
gaining you would be so far be-
hind you would never be ahead,"
explains Judge Conlin.
"I don't know what you would
do without it," agrees attorney
These men, and many others,
believe that plea-copping, al-
though not an ideal method for
achieving justice, is better than
nothing. Other attorneys do not

Goldstein says he will take a case

But it is perhaps the police who
have the strongest objections. Of-
ficers are bitter at many sen-
tence reductions, and feel that
their efforts to build a "good fel-
ony case" are thwarted when
charges are reduced to misde-
meanors and criminals are re-
leased into society, "just to go and
do it again."
Attorney Don Koster's views
might confirm police fears: "Any
good defense attorney will tell you
that the longer a case takes the
easier it is to win."
City Police Chief Walter Krasny
concurs. "Witnesses' memories be-
come fuzzy when they must wait
months to testify," he says. "A
slow court docket puts attorneys
in a position to bargain with the
Despite the objections of some
to plea-copping, it seems that it
may be the only practicable me-
chanism to clear the docket. Of
the 194 criminal cases disposed
of during December, 186 did not
come to trial. Most of these were
the result of plea copping.
Meanwhile, cases on file at the
years' end as being over two years
old jumped from 69 in 1970 to
102 last year.

ments had been discussed, and
that "It's hard to say how long
the strike will last."

Women, however, have not al-

tradition. Shin, Jae-hyo, a 19th-
century reformist and codifier
of the art, broke the sex barrier
himself by training a woman
singer. Since its probable begin-

been a male art, like some Eliza-
