Court revamped
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (P) - A "courtroom of the future" is being
built for a Sacramento law school experiment aimed at boosting secur-
ity, curbing disruptions, aiding news coverage and making the jury's
job easier.
"The practice of law in most courtrooms today is about as modern
as performing surgery in a barbershop," says Gordon Schaber, dean
of the University of Pacific's McGeorge Law School where the $464,000
courtroom is scheduled for completion in June.
Among its innovations will be desks for jurors, who will be encour-
aged to take notes. Jurors also will have a closeup look at evidence
via nine-inch television screens on their desks and will be able to
view videotapes of the trial during deliberations.
The courtroom will be circular enabling the jurors to sit with
their backs to the audience and thus eliminate many distractions from
spectators.
Several other rooms are planned as part of the total court complex.
For instance, a soundproof isolation chamber where an unruly defend-
ant can see and hear the proceedings without being able to interfere
is being constructed.
News reporters will be able to observe the courtroom from a
special viewing area featuring a one-way window "to reduce inter-
ference and increase the view.
More elaborate securitydevices within thecourtroom will include
remote control locks on the doors and weapon detectors at all en-
trances.
Translation facilities and headphones will be provided for par-
ticipants who do not comprehend English. The trial will also be broad-
cast via closed circuit television into a large public viewing room.
Schaber added the main purpose of the new courtroom "will be
to train students in the basic skills of litigation."
But it is intended to serve as a laboratory for testing new designs
and procedures for modern courtrooms, he said.

WATERGATE CASE:
Guilty defendant may reveal
who authorized wiretappin

By Reuter and UPI
WASHINGTON - More crim-
inal charges and further embar-
rassment for the Republican Par-
ty appeared possible yesterday
after James McCord, one of the
guilty men, promised to lift the
lid from the Democratic party
bugging case.
Democrats hoped McCord's of-
fer to talk - after month of stoic
silence - would reveal who au-
thorized the spying and political
sabotage against the Democrats
during last year's presidential
election campaign.
The dramatic last-minute offer
to break silence by McCord, se-
curity chief of President Nixon's
re-election campaign committee,
appeared to greatly sincrease the
chances the facts behind the Wat-
ergate case would become known.
McCord, one of seven men con-
victed of spying on Democratic
Party headquarters in the Water-
gate office building, has s a i d
others were involved in the plot
and indicated he will name them
to a judge later this week.
McCord, a 53-year-old former
agent of the CIA and the FBI

also asserted political pressure
was put on the seven defendants
to plead guilty and keep silent.
He claims several witnesses com-
mitted perjury during the trial.
President Nixon said yesterday
"we have nothing to hide." His
campaign committee denied ex-
erting pressure on any defendants
to plead guilty and remain si-
lent.
"Others involved in the Water-
gate operation were not identi-
fied during the trial, when they
could have been by those tes-
tifying," McCord said in a letter
to Judge John Sirica read at a
dramatic court hearing Friday.
Witnesses at the trial includ-
ed senior officials of the Nixon
re-election campaign committee
who denied all knowledge of the
plot to plant electronic eaves-E
droping equipment in the Demo-
cratic party headquarters.
McCord will meet behind closed
doors this week with Sirica, who
frequently expressed displeasure
during the Watergate trial that
the hearings in his court failed
to bring out the full facts.

Pending McCord's revelations,
Sirica passed permanent senten-
ce on only Gordon Liddy, a mid-
dle-echelon official for the Nix-
on campaign committee, said ny
government prosecutors to be the
ring-leader of the Watergate bug-
ging operation.
In postponing final judgment
on the five other convicted men,
Cirica urged them to cooperate
in the forthcoming Senate in-
vestigation of the Watergate case
and held out the prospect of light
sentences for them if they did.
Meanwhile, Sirica temporarily
sentenced the five to the max-
imum sentences allowed. He in-
dicated he eventually expects
to give them shorter prison
termsthan the seven to 20 years
given Liddy.
