University Council (UC) has completed work on a set
of "emergency guidelines" which have been endorsed by
President Robben Fleming for use during "crisis situations."
UC, composed of representatives from the faculty, ad-
ministration and student body, was created last year to
develop a University-wide set of rules.
The UC rules would replace the Regents' Interim Rules
and Disciplinary Procedures, formulated during the Black
Action Movement strike in 1970, as the laws governing
behavior in the University

Detroit Panther trial
decision still awaited
Special To The Daily
DETROIT-The jury enters its fifth day of deliberations this
morning in the trial of 12 Black Panthers accused of murdering
a Detroit policeman last Oct. 24.
The jury recessed last night after meeting more than seven
hours without a verdict.
The 12 Panthers are charged with premeditated murder and
conspiracy to commit murder. In addition three of the Panthers
are charged with assault with intent to murder.
Reliable sources have indicated that the jury is split 11-1. It
appears that the majority is favoring acquittal since the jury had
announced Sunday that they had arrived at a decision in 24 of the
27 charges.
It is unlikely that the jury will find the Panthers innocent of
assault with intent to murder while convicting them on the two
more serious charges.
The Panthers were originally arrested at the Detroit head-
quarters of the National Committee to Combat Facism, an organiz-
ing wing of the Black Panther party, after a long police seige of the
The seige had begun shortly after Patrolman Glenn Smith was
shot and killed near the house.
The basis of the prosecution's case has been the testimony of
police officers Frank Randazzo and Patrick Murray, an arsenal of
automatic rifles and ammunition found in the house as well as
f Panther literature urging 'death to the pigs.'
The prosecution's case was unsettled, however, when a key
witness, Panther John Lee last week refused to testify.
Prosecutor John Thompson has noted that all 12 defendants
lived in the house for a week before the shooting and that it is
the state's contention that all are guilty. "Of course we can't sur-
gically investigate their minds, we must look at their intentions
40 via evidence," he said.
"All lived there, all were members of the same organizations,
they were all inside when officer Smith was shot, and their true
identity was unknown until they left the house several hours later.
Even though there was only one finger on the trigger, there were
12 fingers legally speaking on the gun," he concluded.
Defense attorney Ernie Goodman has emphasized major
discrepancies in the testimony of officers Randazzo and Murray.

Housing Director John Feld-
kamp, also a member of the
Hoard, said yesterday that the
dropping of the rule "does not
alter the method of procedure,
but alters the written word."
Feldkamp noted- that there are
still several rules in effect that
will serve the same purpose of
the repealed rule. He pointed to
the clause in the information
bulletin which states that resi-
dents "must exercise due regard
for the welfare of their rellow
students and for the facilities
in which they reside.
"Disregard for the rights, re-
sponsibilities and d u t i e s of
others, as well as the creation
of circumstances which could
jeopardize life, limb or property
are conditions which are not
acceptable in University hous-
ing," the clause continues.
Felkamp said that in a situa-
tion where cohabitation in-
fringes on the rights of a room-
mate or other people it will not
be tolerated.
