Seattle 7 face conspiracy trial Monday
SHOP .TONIGHT AND FRIDAY UNTIL 9:00 P.M
TACOMA, Wash. (P) - Seven
young people go on trial here
Monday on federal conspiracy
charges stemming from van-
dalism at a U.S. federal court-
house in Seattle last winter.
The defendants and the govern-
ment already are arguing the
The defendants, who e a 11
themselves the Seattle Seven,
and their attorneys claim t h e
trial is the nation's second ma-
jor conspiracy trial, the l e g a 1
battle of the Chicago Seven be-
ing the first.
"Plain rubbish," says U. S.
Atty. Stan Pitkin. His office
drew up the conspiracy indict-
ments after Seattle's federal
courthouse was defaced during
a demonstration last Feb. 17, the
day after the Chicago Seven
verdicts were handed down.
"Conspiracy is quite often an
included count in any criminal
case," Pitkin says. "It could be
conspiracy to commit bank rob-
bery, distribute heroin or par-
ticipate in a civil disorder."
Charged with conspiracy to
damage the federal courthouse,
which was sprayed with paint
and had some windows broken,
are Michael Lerner, 27, Charles
C. Marshall III, 25, Jeffrey
Dowd, 20, J o s e ph Kelly, 24, y
Michael Abeles, 19, Roger-Lipp-
man, 22, and Susan Stern, 27.
An eighth defendant, 19-year-
old Michael Justensen, is s t i l
Lerner also has been charged
with using interstate telephone
lines to incite to riot. Addition-
al charges of crossing s t a t e
lines to incite to riot have been
filed against Marshall, D o w d,
Kelly and Abeles,
Lerner came to Seattle f r o in
Berkeley, Calif., and spent a
year as a visiting professor of
philosophy at the University of
Washington. His contract was :
nxot renewed. Marshall, a poli-
tical science graduate of Cornell
University, Kelly, Stern and
Abeles, formerly were members
of Students for a Democratic
Society. Lippmann, a former
student at Portland's Reed Col-
lege, and Dowd have been as-
sociated with leftist groups in
Lerner, charges that th, trial
is an attempt by the govern-
ment to "smash the New Left."
"The whole future of t h e
New Left is on trial," says Lern-
er, claiming the trial a diver-
sionary move by the @overnment
to draw attention away from
the nation's economic prob-
Marshall says Seattle has been
singled out as a target area
for repression by the national
administration. He s a y s al-
though there were about 30 de-
monstrations throughout the
country Feb. 17, "there was only
one federal-level indictment
coming out of these demonstra-
tions and that was in Seattle."
Marshall asserts. Seattle was
chosen because of its "isola-
tion" and because the defend-
apts are not as well known na-
tionally as were the Chicago
Pitkin disagrees, saying "it's
a local case."
"There's no national signifi-
cance," the U.S. attorney adds.
"There are cases pending in-
volving violent civil disorders
throughout the country."
He says those cases "run the
gamut from damaging govern-
ment property to interstate
travel to incite riots."
Lerner says demonstrations
will be staged in Detroit, Los
Angeles, New York, Philadelphia,
Washington, D.C., Boston, Mil-
waukee, Minneapolis and Seattle
when the trial opens.
He also told newsmen recent-
ly that defendants will attempt
to talk to the jury without be-
ing disruptive. Marshall and
Lerner plan to defend them-
Lerner says U.S. Judge George
Boldt, who will preside, may
think the defendants are dis-
turbing the trial, "but the jury
will know we are not."
Defense efforts are being sup-
.ported by a Seattle Liberation
Front (SLF), a loosely knit
group of militant organizations
that assume the SLF name when
they act together.
Boldt ordered the trial moved
here from Seattle when defense
attorneys asked that the charges
be dismissed because of pub-
licity in Seattle adverse to the
defendants. The judge rejected
the motion and instead shifted
the trial to Tocoma, 25 miles
south. He also rejected a motion
that he disqualify himself from

We want to talk to you
about a career in law .,.
without law school.
When you become a Lawyer's Assistant, you'll
be doing work tradtionally done by lawyers-
work we think you'll find challenging and re-
sponsible. And Lawyer's Assistants are now so
critically needed that The Institute for Para-
legal Training can offer you a position in the
city of your choice and a higher salary than
you'd expect as a recent college graduate.
You'll work with lawyers on interesting legal
problems-and the rewards will grow as you do.
A representative of The Institute for Para-
legal Training will conduct interviews on:

Not many people know that
General Electric started building a je
engine in 1941. America's first jet
That jet produced only 1200
pounds of thrust.
Our newest jet, for the DC-10,
produces around 50,000 pounds
In the early days of jet aviation,
the important thing was thrust.!
But suddenly our skies are filled
with jets. And, suddenly, jet pollution
is a major problem.
General Electric tackled it head
on when building the DC-10 engines.
And we accomplished two things.
When you see the DC-10 take
to the air, you'll see no black marks
against the sky. Because the engines
make virtually no smoke.
Of course, there's more to jet
exhaust than just smoke. Our goal is
someday to make jets run totally clean.
Another problem with jets is
noise. If you've ever lived anywhere
near an airport, we don't have to
tell you that.
General Electric has been
working on noise, too.
GE was chosen by the federal
government to help solve this
problem for the aviation industry. At,
present, we know of no way a
powerful turbofan engine can be
made noiseless. But we've made
progress in that direction.
The DC-14 engines, for instance,
are quieter than any jet engines on
the passenger planes of the Sixties.
Quieter, even though they're more
than three times as powerful. .
We have more work to do
before we'll satisfy all the people
concerned about jet pollution,
ourselves included. But because
we've been working at it since the
we've already crossed some

The problems concern us
because they concern you. We're a

But there's another, more
important reason. These problems

and this planet. We have a stake in
that future. As businessmen: And,
simply, as people.
