119 miles north of the demilitarized zone.

The regental draft of the judi-
ciary plan, released yesterday by
the University administration, al-
tered the section of the plan deal-
ing with the makeup and powers
of the panel that will preside over
trials under the new judiciary.
While they retained a key ele-
ment of the proposal-the use of
a randomly - selected all - student
jury to decide guilt and punish-
ment in trials of students-they
stated that the jury would make
decisions by a majority vote. The
committee had proposed that de-
cisions be made unanimously.
Although the Regents will not
make a decision on whether to
adopt the plan at their meetings
this week, they will meet with the
judiciary in closed session tomor-
rowsto review the proposed revi-
sions. Last week the Regents
stressed that their revised draft
was "negotiable" and that no per-
manent decisions had been made.
On Friday, the Regents will hold
an open hearing on the judiciary
at 10 a.m. The administration is re-
quiring persons whowish to speak
at the hearing to contact Richard

At a meeting last night, the stu-
dent members of the drafting
committee said the change in the
presiding panel was unacceptable.
Under the regental draft, the pre-
siding panel would consist of a
judge, who would be an attorney
selected from outside the Univer-
sity community, accompanied by
two associate judges, one student
and one faculty member.
The committee had proposed
this composition of the presiding
panel for the first half of the one-
, year trial period of the new ju-
For the second half, the com-
mittee had suggested use of a plan
favored by Student Government
Council and other student groups
-the use of two students and one
faculty member as associate judges
in trials of students, and two fac-
ulty members and one student as
associate judges in trials of fac-
ulty members.
At the end of the trial period,
one of the two plans would be,
made permanent.
However, in their draft of the
judiciary plan, the Regents de-
leted the plan favored by the stu-
dents, an action which prompted
considerable criticism at I a s t

Committee formed to
support Angela Davis
The Free Angela Davis Committee, a newly-formed or-
ganization designed to help "free Angela Davis and all other
political prisoners," held its first meeting Monday night and
formulated plans for future actions.
Patrick Thomas, a member of the group, reported that the
committee is currently circulating a petition advocating free-
dom for Angela Davis. Joel Block, another member, said that
the petition has over three hundred signatures.
The petitions will be used in further activities sUch as
