Law School

Lawyers group cheers Attica
defendant, Suporter at show

"Attica means . . ." shoutedI
Rev. "Mama" Stroble - Smith
and the crowd roared back
"fight back!"
"Attica is . . ." she shouted
again, and the crowd again re-
sponded loudly, "all of us!"
Rev. Stroble-Smith, mother of
Attica defendant Shango Stroble-
Smith, and Attica defendant
John Hill spoke yesterday at the
law school to about 200 peqple.
In 1971, prisoners rioted at
Attica, a New York state maxi-
mum security prison. During
that disorder several guards
and 39 inmates were killed.
Jn his speech, Hill tried to
explain what happened during
the disurbance and why.
"The brothers at Attica are
fighting to be able to call them-

selves human beings," said Hill.
"I was there," he continued,
"and I felt the hot fiery steel."
Hill described "the day of the
seige" - Sept. 13, 1971- when
state troopers retook the prison.
He fell from a 20 foot catwalk
into the mud below.
After the fall he recalls, "I
saw ,a state trooper standing
over me with a gun saying,
'crawl nigger' (Hill is an
American Indian) and I said,
'I've been crawling too long'
and he shot me in the head."
Hill verbally painted what he
saw around him in D-yard of
Attica prison when he finally
gained consciousness.
"You see Attica every day,"
said Hill. "I was a victim be-
fore I even went to Attica, you
all are. You are being chan-
neled into the American dream
and it just don't exist any more,
the American dream is a night-

Hill has been charged with
the first degree murder of a
prison guard during the, Attica
uprising. He is accused of hav-
ing thrown the man through a
window at the prison-where all
windows are barred.
All of this happened to Hill
when he was 19. By law, he
should not have been at a maxi-
mum security prison unless he
was 21.{
He is now out of jail, after,
finishing his term for a pre-
vious crime, on $7500 bail.,
When Rev. "Mama" Stroble-
Smith got up to speak, the
crowd readily responded to her
chants. "A t t i c a mean fight
back!" she shouted over and
over and each time the crowd
answered louder than before.
"They say that change takes
time," she said. "I say that it
doesn't take time for change.
"We are going to fight for
every stroke. Wherever the,
struggle we are going to be
t h e r e!" Stroble - Smith con-j
In concluding she said, "We
are not trying to overthrow the'
government, we are just trying
to overhaul it."
The program was sponsored'
by the local chapter of the Na-
tional Lawyers Guild to raise
money for the Attica defense!

al-mnai-staff review committee,
before final regental approval.
LANEY said that the review
board, "was in° essence a kind
of window dressing committee,
with no power whatsoever, no
nower to screen candidates, no
nower to rank them, no input as
to recommending persons to in-
vite for interviews." The Facul-
ty Senate voted earlier this fall
not to send representatives to
the review body, he said.
The four final candidates for
the 550,000 a year position were
Bricklev; Dr. Harold Abel, pres-
ident of the Castleton, Vermont
State College; State Board of
Edlcation director John Porter;
and Dr. Clifford Clark, an ad-
ministrator at the State Uni-
versity of New York at Bing-
hamton. Clark and Porter with-
drew their names before visit-
ing the campus for interviews.
There was some controversy
over the lievitnant governor's
background. Brickley's experi-
ence in higher education has
been as a part-time political
science and law instructor at
the University of Detroit, Wayne
State University, The University
of Michigan Dearborn campus,
and the Cooley Law School in
PROF. Fred Anderson, presi-
dent of the EMU chapter of the
American Association of Univer-
sity Professors (AAUP), said
"department heads did not think
very favorably of him. He did
not have the qualifications that
Dr. Abel had."
Reports have been circulating
that Abel was discouraged by
regents, eager to appoint Brick-
lev. Abel could not be reached
for comment last night.
EMU regents are appointed
by the tn prnn,.tori rht vps.

Why be a priest? Certainly, in times as difficult as these
we live in, being a priest is a lot harder today than it was in
years past.
And committing oneself to anything for any amount of
time seems to be one of the conflicts of our modern age. But
the priesthood is a challenge. A big one.
Today, more than ever before in history, men and women.
young and old, are searching for religious meaning, for
withdrawal from isolation and alienation to joyful community
experiences, for Good News in the midst of discouragement
and hope in the place of pessimism.
The Paulists are trying to minister to these needs. As a
contemporary religious community serving the American
people, our mission is to communicate the love of Christ
to people.
Every Paulist is a missionary: in the pulpit or the parish
house. . . on campus or in the inner-city .-- with the spoken
or the printed word . ,.he is communicating to people. His
mission is to all of America. His message is love: the love of
Christ for all people.
It isn't easy but the Paulist welcomes commitment.
Welcomes the challenge. If you are interested in the Paulist and other noteworthy coMpon-
