NEW HAVEN, Conn. (A) -
Black Panther Chairman Bobby
G. Scale is flee on bond after
21 months in prison and two
sensational mistrials.
Seale, 34-year-old cofounder
of the Black Panther party, was
mobbed by about 100 jubilant
Panther sympathizers as he
walked out of the Federal Court
Building late yesterday after-
The crowd in c 1 u d e d three
members of the jury that dead-
locked earlier this week in the
mistrial of Seale and a local
Panther leader on charges stem-
ming from 'he 1969 killing of
another Panther.
The first people to greet Seale
as a free man were his brother
John and David Hilliard, Panth-
er chief of staff.
Seale kissed two of the jurors,
and warmly embraced the third,
jury foreman Robert Gauthier.
"I wish I could have stood up
and acquitted you in court,"
G a ut h i e r told the Panther
The kisses went to Barbara
Lanier. one ot the five black
women on the jury, and to Ni-
nette Martino.
Miss Lanier said she went to
the federal building because "I
just wanted to see him a free
Then he left the building to
the cheers of the crowd.
Seale raised both arms with
his fists clenched.
Seale declined to talk to news-
men. He jumped into a car and
headed for New York City,
where he was to catch a flight
for San Francisco and a con-
ference with Black Panther Min-

Seale had been in the federal
building here awaiting the ar-
rival of legal papers from Chi-
A federal circuit court of ap-
peals judge in Chicago approved,
over government objections, the
release of Seale on $25,000 bond
pending his appeal of a four
year contempt of court sentence
stemming from the Chicago 3
conspiracy trial.
The decision to release Seale
came after a New Haven Super-
ior Court judge dismissed all
charges against Seale and a co-
defendant because of the mis-
trial. Four of those charges could
have brought the death penalty.
"I'm not guilty. I was acquit-
ted in that courtroom," said
Seale as he left the state prisoi
at Montville and headed for New
Haven to sign the bond papers.

BOBBY SEALE, Black Panther leader, is taken for the last time
from the State Correctional Center at Montville, Conn. on his way
to the New Haven Federal Building for final release processing.
Charges against him and Erika Huggins were dismissed in New
Haven Superior Court, last Tuesday.

Record seeks to expand communications

Since last October, the University com-
miunity has been receiving free each
week the administration house organ,
"The University Recrd," as an official
source of information ab,$t University
The University Recora had formerly
been published for weekly distribution
to faculty and staff members as a jour-
nal of University affairs aimed at aca-
demic employes.
But at the September Regents meet-
ing, former Regent Paul Goebel, (R-
Grand Rapids) proposed that the admin-
istration sponsor its own record of Uni-
versity news, since he considered The
Daily unfairly biased.
Because the University was already
publishing the Record, it was decided to
expand it and to increase the scope of its

distribution and interest rather than start
an entirely new publication.
Record Managing Editor Sharon Yo-
der, '63, thinks it fits in with a national
trend towards such products. "Universi-
ties all over the country are going to a
fuller information route as far as cam-
pus publications." she says.
Yoder's office, on the sixth floor of
the Administration Building, is not
equipped with a typewriter.
Yoder is the only full-time staff mem-
her of the Record. Others include Execu-
tive Editor Ted Bonus, who is also di-
rector of State and Community. Rela-
tions in the office of University Rela-
tions; Contributing Editor Lou Cartier,
editor of the University News, a publi-
cation intended primarily for non-aca-
demic employes; and Reporter Jana
Bommersbach, Grad. a journalism in-
tern with University Relations, and

President of Graduate Assembly.
The Record is printed locally every
Saturday during the year by a private
firm. It is distributed by University em-
ployes, on Monday mornings.
For the summer, the Record has re-
duced its printing schedule to every two
weeks and has reduced its press run
from 22,000 to about 10,000.
Yoder could give no estimate of how
much the University pays for the Re-
Yoder perceives no conflict be tween
her concept of a newspaper and the use
of the Record as an administrative ve-
"I question the term 'administrative
mouthpiece.' We use the newspaper con-
cept but we aren't a newspaper. How
can you be when you come out only once
a week?" she asks.
