name for South Africa. They stood
silently as the sentences were read.
After sentences were passed the
students embraced emotionally and
waved and smiled to friends and
relatives packed into the small cour-
troom. Outside, the freed blacks were
greeted by a jubilant crowd while
relatives of the jailed wept.
During the trial, which drew inter-
national attention, the state tried to
prove that the students, and
specifically their leaders, conspired to
confront the state knowing full well that
violence would be the outcome.
The defense argued that the students
had organized peaceful protests against
legitimate grievances over segregated
black eduction, and that the demon-
strations turned violent when police
opened fire.

three-day visit he hoped to see
libraries, parks, and other public
facilities.
THE VISITORS from Hikone City
will get their chance today during a
picnic lunch at Gallup Park.
The visitors surprised Ann Arborites
by arriving here three hours earlier
than planned from Las Vegas, the
second stop in their six-city mission,
which also includes San Francisco,
Niagara Falls, Toronto, and Van-
couver.
INCLUDED among 32 travelers are
Japanese presidents of some major
corporations and Hikone city officials,
according to Dick Lotz, Director of the
Conference of Visitor's Bureau in Ann
Arbor. Lotz added that this visit is the
first official visit from one of Ann Ar-
bor's four sister cities. The other sister
cities are in France, Germany, and
British Honduras.
Ann Arbor's Mayor Louis Belcher,
who said he is excited about the cultural
exchange, said, "We have a super
relationship with all of our sister cities.
There's a special feeling."
Ann Arbor City Councilman Ken Lat-
ta noted the Japanese leaders are much
older than their U.S. counterparts.
"The Japanese don't make names for
themselves till they're in their forties."
ONE VISITOR from Hikone City,
Hisa Hayasaki, president of the
Federation of Women's Organizations,
agreed with Latta. Federation,
Hayasaki said, is tryig to find ways to
cope with the aging society in addition
to improving "women's livelihood"
