CSJ HEARS CASE
Suit calls RSG elections illegal

(Continued from Page 1)
Also, he did not consider it
"proper" for the elections direc-
tor to include with the ballot biog-
raphies of the candidates or ar-
guments for and against the'ref-
erenda. Such descriptions were
likely to be biased, he explained,
and it is the responsibility of the
individual candidates to cam-
paign.
Bamba assumed office after the
ballot was printed.
Slaughter is one of five write-
in candidates running on a
GROUP slate in the RSG elec-'
tions.
GROUP ran a slate of five can-
didates in the SGC elections last
Nov.
John Koza, GROUP candidate
in the SGC election and current
SGC member, appears to be the
instigator of recent criticism of
RSG elections.
Early last week, Koza mailed
a letter to one-third of the Rack-
ham students asking for a nega-
tive vote on the three referenda

which appear on the RSG ballot.
The three RSG referenda re-
solve that:
-The graduate student gov-
ments, through the Graduate
Federation (GF) - proposed
successor to the recently dis-
solved Graduate Assembly (GA)-
have the authority to make nomi-
nations to faculty committees for-
merly made by GA;
-RSG be empowered to work
with other graduaterand profes-
sional college governments in
seeking autonomy from SGC and
CSJ in matters of representation,
taxation and governance of grad-
uate students, and that;
-Fifty cents per term from the
University fees paid by each Rack-
ham student be used for the sup-
port of RSG, that money not be-
ing obtained in addition to any
funds from student fees approv-
ed by any other process.
Candidates whose names appear
on the RSG ballot include: Barry
Bowman, Robert Johnson, Chris-

topher Unger, Charles Stanton,
Robert Edgeworth, John Tolan,
and Rudolfo Arevalo
Law Prof. Francis Allen, psy-
chology Prof. Martin Gold and'
Rep. Marvin Esch (R-Mich.) are
among 40 nationally prominent
persons in the fields of correc-
tions, law and social science who
have agreed to serve as consult-
ants and advisory panelists on the
National Assessment Study of
Correctional Program for Juve-
nile and Youthful Offenders,
now being conducted at the Uni-
versity.
During the five year study, the
relative effectiveness of major
kinds of correctional programs
for different juvenile and youth-
ful offenders will be evaluated,
and recommendations for new
policies will be developed.

a sudden 600 'people" from the
community enroll in PESO classes,
the administration ' may review
their position.
Other subjects discussed at
yesterday's PESC meeting includ-
ed the question of credentials and
PESC's financial situation.
A special "credentials commit-
tee" has been appointed to nego-
tiate with area schools to grant
credit to non-students who suc-
cessfully complete PESO courses.
English prof. Hubert English, head
of the literary college curriculum
committee said yesterday, how-
ever, that his committee has not
yet been approached on the ques-
tion of granting such credit to
nonstudents.
The University has received a
grant of $19,965 from the Na.-
tional Endowment for the Hu-
manities for the first part of a
study of the role of the French-
man Caron de Beaumarchais in
aiding the American Revolution.
Beaumarchais was the author
of the two famous plays, "The
Barber of Seville" and "The Mar-
riage of Figaro." From 1776 until
1778 he ran a fleet of ships bring-
ing secret supplies to this coun-
try to aid the revolutionaries.

By JEFF WILLSON
Activities Day, Jan. 15-23 in the
Union Ballroom, is going to be dif-
ferent this year than it has been
before. Past Activity Days have
been held during the first term
to introduce freshmen to cam-
pus groups. But this year a sec-
ond Activities Day is being held
as a community project.
Instead of just inviting student
groups to take part, the Univer-
sity Activities Center (UAC), who
sponsors Activities Day, is invit-
ing all Ann Arbor groups.
This will be the first step in
UAC's plan to get campus groups,
community groups, and individu-
als closer together. Right now, a
UAC spokesman says, there are
many groups that people would
be interested in joining but they

don't know about them.
Starting with Activities Day, the
Office of Student Services (OSS)
is hoping to make a list of groups
in the Ann Arbor area so that
people can find an activity they
are interested in. They also plan
to keep a file of people interest-
ed in a specific activity where
there is no existing group, so that
other people interested in that
activity will be referred to them.
Organizers hope that this Ac-
tivities Day will be more success-
ful than the one held last fall,
since freshmen are now settled
and may be looking for something
outside of homework to do. There
are presently 36 organizations
signed up for Activities Day, in-
cluding Gay Liberation and a
number of fraternities.

of factual liberties not, however,
in the name of drama. Sacco's
hatred of incompetent defense
attorney Moore, and Moore's
Kunstlerlike role in making
martyrs of the pair is only hint-'
ed at. The double-bind of being
scapegoats for the Right and
martyrs for the Left is likewise
barely touched. And the differ-
ences between the defendants
themselves is never probed.
All of these omissions can un-
doubtedly be chalked up to Mon-
4aldo's ogre hunt, less concerned
with people than with politics.
But a more mysterious exclusion
is the emasculation of Vanzetti's
moving courtroom speech, a
speech which works both politi-
cally and dramatically. How
could anyone have trimmed
these lines:
If it had not been for this
thing. I might have lived out
my life talking at street cor-
ners to scorning men. I might
have die, unmarked, unknown,
a failure. Now we are not a
failure. This is our career and
our triumph. Never in our full
life can we hope to do such
work for tolerance, for justice,
for man's understanding of
man, as now we do by acci-
dent.
That last moment belongs to
us - that agony is our triumph.
Dramatically bereft, the film
also blunders along visually with
repetitious two-shots, wobbly
camera-work that tries to pass
for cinema verite, pointless re-
action shots seemingly stuck in
on the theory that one cut is as
good as another (when the ver-
dict is announced, we get close-
ups of practically everyone in
the courtroom), and big, blurry
objects, usually heads, thrust in
the foreground. When in doubt,
director Montaldo zeroes in on
defense attorney Moore's san-
dals (read "disrespect for
court"), the jury foreman salut-
ing the flag (read "one-hundred
percenter"), and Judge Thayer
smirking (read "railroad").
These things are annoyances.
Much worse is Montaldo's visual
treatment of Vanzetti's court-
room speech, which matches the
director's textual butchery. The
camera begins with a close-up
of Vanzetti and slowly zooms out
to a medium close-up capturing
the immobile Sacco. Perfectly

acceptable. But then, as Van-
zetti delivers his stirring last
words, Montaldo cuts to a long-
shot of the courtroom and all
is lost. The words have been
dwarfed by architecture; the
man has been dwarfed by the
film.
In thesame vein, though less
a matter of visual style than~
overall poor judgment - espe-
cially strange since -Montaldo
worked on Battle of Algiers -
is the use of black and white for
the prologue and execution, and
color for all the rest. Sacco &
Vanzetti seems to be one flim
that clearly proves the case for
monochrome; and though I'll be
saying a good deal more about
the mythology of the objective
image when I review The Last
Picture Show, suffice it to say
here that we visualize Sacco and
Vanzetti in terms of newsreels,
and the visual poetry of our
mind's eye is cast in that mold.
Color only spiffs things up at
the expense of th e poetry.
And I for one don't think the
Sacco-Vanzetti story needs eith-
er Montaldo's political or aes-
thetic polish. Vanzetti wrote
shortly before his execution:
What I wish-more than all
else in this last hour of agony
