routed out when police fired a
tear gas barrage into the house.
The prosecution has been try-
ing to prove that the Panthers
had conspired to kill Detroit
policemen on a large scale -
introducing Panther literature
with such inscriptions as "off
the pig" as evidence.
Defense attorney Neal Bush
said, however, that the prosecu-
tion has been unable to intro-
duce any evidence to prove
which one, if any, of the de-
fendants on trial conspired to,
or murdered Smith. "They can-
not ascribe any individual guilt,"
Lee's refusal to testify, Bush
added, destroys the prosecu-
So far, Bush noted, the ma-
jor prosecution testimony has
come from two policemen.
One, Frank Randazzo, testi-
fied the shot which killed Smith
was fired from a rifle he saw
come out of the window of the
However, Bush said, his part-
ner later testified that at the
time the shot was fired, he
thought Randazzo was crawling
down the street. As a result,
the defense claimed, he could
not have seen the incident.
The defense has contended
that the shots could just as
easily have come from a vacant
house two doors away from the
Panther house. It was well
known, they alleged, that others
in the neighborhood had guns.
Further, a few minutes after
Smith was shot, two men were
reportedly seen running down
the street, who the defense
claims,ralso could beresponsible
for the shots.
The prosecuting a tto rn eys
could not be reached for com-
The prosecution is about ready
to conclude their case and the
defense should begin to present
its side in about a week.
During the trial, the court-
room has retained a relaxed at-
mosphere -different from vir-
tually all other Panther trials
throughout the nation. There
are only a few policemen in the
courtroom and there have been
no outbursts from any of the
"The defendants are disci-
plined because they know they
are innocent and expect to win,"
Of the 15 Panthers originally
arrested, 12 are on trial in De-
troit Recorder's Court for con-
spiracy to murder. Besides Lee,
one case was referred to Juve-
nile Court and a woman's case
was postponed. The t h r e e
Panthers who remained in the
house until after the tear gas
barrage are charged with assault
with intent to kill in addition
to the conspiracy charge.

Committee aids students
(Continued from Page 3)
In early 1970, a survey con-
ducted by the committee indi-
cated that most underclass men
and women were dissatisfied with
the college learning experience.
Reasons cited most often were
b o r e d o m with introductory
courses (which often repeated
material taught in high school),
frustration at being closed out of
courses, and a lack of knowl-
edge of special academically-
oriented programs such as "Pro-

ASIAN COUNTRIES must improve their existing methods of or-
ganic farming rather than depending on western technology, an
Indian agronomist, told participants at the University's Conference
on Asian Environments yesterday.
Kusim Nair, agricultural expert with the Center for Asian Studies
at Michigan State University, said that "the methods of modern tech-
nology must be adapted to the realities of Asian environments, both
economic and ecological."
She explained that western fertilizers and insecticides, in addition
to their prohibitive costs, are "powerful pollutants."
MICHIGAN'S ABORTION REFORM BATTLE may be solved by
placing the issue on the 1972 presidential election ballot.
Sen. Gilbert Bursley (R-Ann Arbor), sponsor of the Senate-
approved abortion bill now stalled in the House, said he has the names
of more than 1,000 volunteers willing to circulate petitions aimed at
the ballot designation.
He said it would take some 300,000 signatures for a constitutional
amendment and roughly 250,000 for a legislative referendum.
DETROIT OFFICIALS have agreed to keep Balduck Park-on
the city's East side-open to young people under a provisional agree-
Under the pact, the park, which was the scene of four nights of
clashes between youths and police last summer, will be patrolled
by young marshalls in an effort to keep noise levels down and reduce
the visibility of drug sales in the park.
One youth involved in the negotiations said that hard-drug pushers
would be asked to leave the park, but if they persisted, their names
would be published in two Detroit area underground papers.
