nastics. HRP maintains, however, that

direction of the police is an im-
portant issue, since it would test
whether the city can set police
enforcement priorities.
One HRP worker commented on
the result of such a hypothetical
test case: "If we could win it, it
would be a tremendous victory for
community control."
Countering the Republican argu-
ment that the law should be out of
line with the state law, the HRP
noted that the city has a legal
right to set less stringent penal-f
ties for marijuana use than the
state.
CITY DEMOCRATS have not
taken a party stand on the issue
of marijuana, allowing each can-
didate to take a position consist-
ent with individual campaigns. The
result has been three candidates in
favor of the proposal, with two
taking no stand or neutral. The po-
sitions of the candidates:-

-Colleen McGee, First Ward,
favors passage,
-Mary Richman, Second Ward,
favors passage, "in principle, but
has reservations," in practice,
-Dan Burke, Third Ward, takes
no stand,
-Jamie Kenworthy, F o u r t h
Ward, favors passage, and
-Paul Brown, Fifth Ward, takes
no stand, although he is privately
rumored to be opposed.
Much of the controversy sur-
rounding the current marijuana
proposal stems from the city's
first brush with a $5 fine for pos-
session or use of marijuana in
1972.
The political climate of the city,
was different then, with a loose
coalition of Democrats and HRP
members controlling City Council
under the rule of a Democratic
mayor, Robert Harris.

A career in law-
without law school.
What can you do with only a bachelor's degree?
Now there is a way to bridge the gap between an
undergraduate education and a challenging, responsible
career. The Lawyer's Assistant is able to do work traditionally
done by lawyers.
Three months of intensive training can give you the
skills-the courses are taught by lawyers. You choose one of
the six courses offered-choose the city in which you want
to work.
Since 1970, The Institute for Paralegal Training has
placed more than 500 graduates in law firms, banks, and
corporations in over 40 cities.
If you are a student of high academic standing and
are interested in a career as a Lawyer's Assistant we'd like
to meet you.
Contact your placement office for an interview wish

We will visit your campus on

pot law
passed an ordinance making weed
possession or use punishable by a
fine of up to $5.
Coming at a time when laws on
drugs were under scrutiny all over
the country, the city ordinance re-
ceived widespread publicity via
stories in many national maga-
zines and newspapers, earning the
city the title of "Dope Capital of
the Midwest."
This unofficial title, along with
the city's reputation at that time
as a countercultural mecca, soon
became a campaign issue with
law-and-order candidates claiming
the liberal law brought "undesir-
able elements" into the commun-
ity.
THE LAW didn't last long. A
test case of the law came before
Judge Sandorf Eldon in Septem-
ber, 1972, and he promptly ruled
that the key sections of the ordi-
nance - the famous $S fine - and
other matters relating to maxi-
mum court costs that may be
charged to a convicted defendant,
were illegal.
Among the campaign pledges
of the Republicans was repeal of
the city's pot ordinance, ands the
Republicans kept their word in
July. At a meeting attended by
over 200-dope-smoking constitu-
ents, the Council repealed the or-
dinance.
Mayor Stephensonx set the tone
of that meeting when he declared
last year, "Pot dealers are a so-
cial blight and must be driven out
of business."
