Black Panther faces trial today 'U' wary

CELEBRATE 1690 VICTORY:

HIGHEST RATING!"
- Wondo Holt. N.Y, Do c~l s

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (/P - A
jury that includes three blacks
begins hearing testimony today
in the trial of one of e i g h t
Black Panthers charged in the
slaying of a fellow party mem-
ber 14 months ago.
The trial of Lonnie McLucas
is being held separately from
the rest of the defendants, who
include Black Panther Nation-
al Chairman Bobby G. Seale.
McLucas, 24, is an area captain
in the Panther organization and
f o u n d e r of the Panthers'
Bridgeport chapter. The charg-
es against him include the cap-
ital offense of kidnapping re-
sulting in death. However, the
prosecutor has assured defense
attorneys that he does not in-

tend to seek the death penalty.
McLucas and the other de-
fendants are charged in connec-
tion with the shooting death of
Alex Rackley, 24, of New York
City. Rackley's body was found
in a shallow river in Middle-
field - about 15 miles from
New Haven - May 21, 1969.
Police contend the Panthers
began suspecting Rackley was
an informer after 21 Panthers
were indicted in New York City
for allegedly plotting several
bombings. The New Haven Pan-
thers abducted Rackley, tortur-
ed him and conducted a kanga-
roo trial, police said, then shot
him in the head and chest on
orders from Seale.
The Panthers and their po-

litical allies, who include a
number of white radicals, main-
thin that Rackley. was a "mem-
ber in good standing" of the
party.
Panther attorney Charles P..
Garry has charged that Rack-
ley was murdered by govern-
ment agents. Black Panther
Chief of Staff David Hilliard
recently asserted that Rackley
was killed as p a r t of a con-
spiracy to "annihilate" the par-
ty.
Fourteen Panthers were orig-
inally indicted in the case. Two
were turned over to juvenile au-
thorities, and three others in-
cluding Warren Kimbro, 35,
whom police charged with fir-
ing the first shot - pleaded
'quilty to noncapital charges.

Another, Francis Carter, 20,
was jailed on contempt charges
for refusing to testify against
the others after being granted
Immunity. He is out on bond
pending appeal.
Of the remaining eight de-
fendants, two are fighting ex-
tradition from Colorado and the
other six a r e in Connecticut
jails awaiting trial.
McLucas, a native of Wade,
N.C., was arrested in Salt Lake
City, Utah, in June 1969 during
a series of r a i d s on Panther
headquarters in four cities by
police and federal agents. He
waived extradition proceedings.
His case was separated from
that of the other defendants in
May by Sperior C o u r t Judge
Harold M. Mulvey, a former
Connecticut state attorney gen-
eral who is scheduled to preside
at his trial. Mulvey granted the
state's request f o r a separate
trial of McLucas because of
statements McLucas gave au-
thorities shortly after his arrest
that allegedly implicated the
other defendants.

on protest
legislation
(Continued from Page 1)
the heart of the matter-the
University's autonomy.
"Under the interim conduct
rules passed by the Regents,
sanctions can range anywhere
from a warning to expulsion,"
Smith says. "Should a hearing
officer decide in a damage case
to call for restitution and a
warning, I don't know what we'd
do."
It is precisely that apparent
unpreparedness which Student
Government Council President
Marty Scott is critical of.
"I thought the amendments
were bad when I heard of them
one at a time aid when you
read them all together, it knocks
you on the floor," Scott says.
"They're bad and more is com-
ing. The University has to de-
cide where it stands on this
whole thing and take a posi-
tion."
But Smith says, "We are not
eager for a confrontation on the
autonomy question. If we lose a
fight, we're really in trouble and
if we win, we still won't have
exactly endeared ourselves with
the Legislature."
The administration plan, if
one exists, seems to be a "wait-
and-see" policy. "To bring a
general suit that all these are
unconstitutional is just asking
for trouble when we don't have
an actual case to work from,"
Smith says, agreeing that the
University might end up fight-
ing all through the courts for
the case of 'a student accused
of disrupting University activi-
ties, damaging it or possessing
an unregistered firearm on Uni-
versity property.
"I'd like to see someone try to
force us to prosecute in the case
of damage such as the tearing
down of the goalposts after the
Ohio State game," Smith says.
But the bill is aimed at violent
protest, not athletic fervor, and
on that subject, Smith is less
definite on what he would like
to see. "We'll wait until a case
comes up and decide what to do
with it," he says.
But Scott is afraid the Uni-
versity may find itself unpre-
pared when that time eventually
arrives. "This is an issue that
strikes at the heart of the Uni-
versity-what we're doing here,
who's running it. These are some
hard questions that should be
answered now. There might not
be time later."

BELFAST, Northern Ireland
UP) - More than,100,000 men of
t h e Protestant Orange Order
paraded with fife bands squeal-
ing and banners waving yester-
day in a massive demonstration
of their determination to re-
main British.
A security f o r c e of 20.000
troops and police kept watch
on major towns of the troubled
province.
By late afternoon only three
youngsters had been arrested -
Roman Catholics charged with
disorderly behavior in flying the
flag of the Irish Republic to
the south.

A total ban on liquor sales
and a cut in the number of ral-
ly speeches helped to keep tem-
pers down on this 280th anni-
versary of the Protestant vic-
tory over Catholics at the Bat-
tle of the Boyne.
The speeches that were given
underlined the powerful Orange
Order's growing dissatisfaction
with the moderate policies of
Prime Minister James Chiches-
ter-Clark and particularly his
insistence that reforms demand-
ed by the Catholic minority
must go through.
Resolutions at t h e Orange-
men's rallies pointedly omitted
