trial to




From Wire Service Reports
NEW HAVEN, Conn. - Testimony begins today in the
trial of Black Panther Party Chairman Bobby Seale and
local party leader Ericka Huggins.
Seale and Huggins are charged with murder, kidnaping
resulting in murder, and conspiracy to commit both these
crimes in the May, 1968 shooting of Alex Rackley.
Police charge that Rackley, who was working with the
Panthers in New York, was executed on orders from Seale
because Rackley was believed to be a police informer.
If Seale and Huggins are convicted on the murder charge
hey could both face the death penalty.
Besides Seale and Huggins, only

funct, as a student organization

radical group by Central Student
Judiciary (CSJ) last November is
The motion, passed by a six to
three vote after a heated argu-
ment among SGC members, states
that SGC will not recognize any
"successor" organization to SDS,
which incorporates the same indi-
viduals convicted ofdisrupting re-

However, the motion provides
that a new organization using the
name SDS could appear before
CSJ to seek a ruling that it was not
a "successor" organization to the
*onvicted SDS organization.
In other action, SGC allocated

two of the 14 defendants arrested
in the case remain to be tried. Six
persons pleaded guilty to reduced
charges, two cases were handled
in juvenile court, charges were
dropped against another and Pan-
ther Lonnie McLucas was convicted
of conspiracy to murder and sen-
tenced to 12 to 15 years in jail.
McLucas was acquitted of three
more serious charges.
The principal witness for the
state, Panther George Sams,
charges that Seale gave him orders
to have Rackley killed. In return
for testifying for the State and
admitting that he was a principal
figure in the killing, Sams has been
allowed to plead guilty to a lesser
charge of second degree murder.
The Panthers and their adherents
maintain that the defendants in the
Rackley slaying are being prose-
cuted for their political beliefs and
that the victim's death was con-
ceived and carried out by Sams.
The Panthers claim Sams was
working for the police.
Theodore Koskoff, chief defense
attorney at the McLucas trial,
commented on the political nature'
of the trials in a Yale University'
law school student publication.
"The Seale trial is more political
than the McLucas trial," he said,
because "the further away you get
from the guy that pulled the trig-'
ge, the more political the motiva-
tion seems to be."
Since being arrested in Califor-
nia on the Rackley charges in Au-
guest, 1969, Seale has been in pri-
son with his bail denied.

South Vietnamese troops were forced to further retreat

The pilots also confirmed that Landing Zone Brown, an
important base 14 miles from the Vietnamese frontier was
doomed as North Vietnamese gunners rained artillery, mortar

They further said that the South Vietnamese have aband-

The LSA Course Mart- Commit-

dures at an open hearing today.
The substantial revisions, ac-
cording to committee member psy-

stem from the recent controversy
surrounding College Course. 327,

The controversy developed at
the start of the term when the
LSA curriculum committee
charged there were certain "dis-
crepancies" between the course as
it had been approved and the
course as it was being advertised
in leaflets and in The Daily.
As a result, the Course Mart
Committee deleted six sections of
the course three weeks into the
term. Later, after members of the
course protested, and while the
LSA executive committee was in-
vestigating the issue, the commit-
tee reinstated the sections.
Included in the proposed
changes are limitations on adver-
