'U' student to face prosecution

Downing will be represented by
University Attorney Peter For-
sythe, since, according to Christ-
ensen, the action occurred w h e n
Downing was acting in his capac-
ity as a University employe.
Possible sanctions against Eus-
tis include probation, suspension
Although the meeting outside
of which the alleged act occurred
was the Regents' regular monthly
open session, the Administration
Bldg. was locked and students were
told theytold they should have ap-
plied for passes in advance to
enter the meeting.
A skirmish broke out between
students trying to enter the build-
ing and University security offic-
ials and Ann Arbor police.
Two other students have been
arrested as a result of the actions,
but Eustis is the only one as yet
facing both University and civil
The rules allow students facing
trial in civil court to postpone
their interim rules' hearing until
after their trials in civil court.
According to Hayes, seeking the
postponement is "one of the things
we are considering."
Other possibilities include seek-
ing a preliminary restraining or-
der against the hearing or chal-
lenging the constitutionality of the
interim rules themselves "on both
state and federal grounds," ac-
cording to! Hayes.
Since their inception, the rules
have been criticized by both stu-
dents and faculty members. Op-
ponents have charged that the rul-
es involve a denial of basic rights
to which defendants are entitled
in judicial proceedings.
These include trial by one's
peers and the guaranteed right of
the defendant to be present at his
trial. The rules allow for the hear-
ing officer to bar the defendant
from the trial if he becomes "dis-
ruptive" and to hold the t r i a 1
without him if he fails to appear.
Although Hayes criticizes t h e
rules, he said that "when you be-
gin to consider due process, you
find the rules look as if they've
been designed by someone very
much aware of the minimum
grounds for constitutionality - a
successful challenge is not a for-
Souris, in a letter to Fleming
which was forwarded to E u s ti s ,
noted several reservations he has
to the rules, including the fact
that his "most serious reservation"
was that the trules procedure al-
lows the University to delegate re-
sponsibility for students "to one
outside the University."
Contacted last night, S o u r i s
would not comment specifically on
his reservations saying "my task
is to make sure Mr. Eustis is ac-
corded his rights."
Hayes says he asked Christensen
to "come forth with procedures for
filing charges against Mr. Down-
Eustis says he "would go along
with fighting" the charges in
whatever way his lawyer advises.

They estimate that it w o u1 d
take four people about a month
to dig a trench or hole suitable
for a family. Most households
report that they dug several
such hideaways during the
course of the heavy bombing.
"We would try to find places
where we thought the planes
wouldn't bomb," a 62 year old
woman from the Plain of Jars
has explained, "but in the end
they bombed everywhere."
As a result, the bombing caus-
ed heavy casualties - often as
high as 25 per cent in villages
surveyed. Most civilians were
killed or wounded by anti-per-
sonnel bombs, though victims of
500 pound bombs, napalm, frag-
mentation bombs and strafing
have also been recorded in re-
Villagers explain that they
had to leave their retreats re-
gularly to raise food, care for
livestock, pound rice, and per-
form other such essential tasks.
Many casualties occurred dur-
ing these occasions.
Older people and children were
the main victims.
The refugees explain that the
children were the most likely
to become afraid and fail to
find shelter during a raid, or ac-
cidentally detonate a delayed-
action or unexploded bomb after
one. Older people, they say,
"could not run fast enough" or
did not react quickly due to the
disabilities of age.
Education, normal commerce,
religious observance and agri-
cultural production were severe-
ly curtailed. The bombing in
1964 and 1968 caused schools,
markets, cooperative stores and
pagodas to be relocated in the
forest. Heavier bombing after
that made regular groupings of
people almost impossible.
Fear of being seen from the
air also restricted farming ac-
tivities. By 1969 villagers had
abandoned most of their rice-
fields, turning to cultivation of
manioc in the forest and sub-
sistence plots of rice. They say
that they would mainly work on
their fields at night,* with the
aid of small kerosene lamps.
Harvested rice lying out in the
open was a particular target.
They describe long and often
hazardous porterage as one of
the greatest hardships. They say
that before the bombing began
the Pathet Lao army handled its
logistics by itself.

SGC unit considers charges against Daily

March 30, the first day of the elec-
tions, Nelson said the Daily had'
not provided enough time for re-
sponse from candidates not en-
At a hearing on the complaint
last Sunday, the Senior Editors did
not send a representative, and in-
stead filed a statement with the
Credential and Rules Board which
denied that The Daily was subject
to the rules of SGC.
"The Senior Editors feel . . . that
the criticism as to the orief period
between endorsements and the elec-
tion is quite sound, and we hope to
be able to print future endorse-
ments of candidates in SGC elec-
tions several days prior to the elec-z
tion," the statement said.
"It is quite another matter to
concede that Council or 'tther gov-
erning bodies have the power ort
the right to impose such a rule upon
The Daily, or indeed, upon any
newspaper," the statement added.
The Credential and Rules Board]
subsequently found The Dailyf
guilty of violating the rule, but .
stated it was "uncertain of the con-
stitutionality of the law."
In order to assure that The Daily
appeal the ruling to SGC, and
thereby elicit a determination of
constitutionality, the board fined
Kraftowitz $6, just enough to have
a "hold credit" placed on his ac-
count if he declines to pay. I
Kraftowitz believes the fine is in-

editorial freedom from the Regents
in 1968, and are empowered to de-
termine what is printed and when

Kraftowitz adds that the Senior
Editors "hope that SGC will recog-
nize our sincerity in adopting the
thrust of its new rule.
"But we cannot, in good con- -
science, allow SGC, or any politi-
cal body on which we report estab-
lish a precedent where it can con-

"It is only when a newspaper's
editorial freedom is curtailed, or
there is a threat of curtailment,
that governing bodies are able to
act without answering to the pub-
lic," Kraftowitz says.
