New anti-crime bill
IF CONGRESS PASSES the administration's "anti-crime"
bill as it was reported out of a Senate-House conference
committee Monday, a policeman will be able to burst in-
to your house unannounced. If he arrests you, and a judge
considers you to be a "danger to society," you can be held
in "preventive detention" for as long as 60 days before
Upon the third felony conviction you automatically
receive a life sentence. If you feel you have been wronged
by the system, you can always sue for false arrest - but
you will pay the legal costs of the policeman you charge
-even if you win your case.
The bill presently before the Senate and House ap-
plies to only the District of Columbia, but the adminis-
tration designed the proposal as a model for the whole
nation. And its approval by the conference committee is
considered a major victory for Nixon and his "law and
THE BILL, which also includes a limited wire-tapping
provision, effectively eliminates individual privacy.
The "no-knock" provision allowing police to enter unan-
nounced if notice is likely to endanger the life of the po-
liceman and the provision obligating the plaintive to pay
the attorney's fees for policemen charged with false ar-
rest establish the nation's police forces as the adminis-
tration's own Gestapo-like force free to pursue its work
with virtual impunity.
While the bill provides the government with a dan-
gerous instrument of repression, its potential effective-
ness in lessening crime is dubious. Nixon's "anti-crime"
proposal ignores completely the conditions of poverty,
ghetto dwellings, p o o r education and inadequate job
training and placement programs--especially prevalent
in Washington, D.C. - that breed the crime he is sup-
posedly so concerned about.
THE BILL'S PROPOSED higher-paid, tenured judges
empowered to impose stiffer jail sentences enter the
scene only after a crime has been committed, and the in-
adequacies of this deterrent philosophy of crime preven-
tion have already been made obvious by the ineffective-
ness of the present capital punishment laws.
Nixon's "anti-crime" proposal is inhumane and repres-
sive. It is also racist. The white administration has chosen
a city with a 70 per cent black population as its first tar-
get in a nation-wide campaign of repression.
The bill is expected to pass the House. Unless the
Senate takes a stand to block it, Nixon's racist policies of
repression will be "legally" established in Washington,
D.C. as a blueprint for the rest of the country to follow.

When you play the movie mo-
guls' game and take a chance upon
a mainstream, middle-American
flick, what do you do when the
thing is a hype. Do you walk right
out and sneer at the pretty girl
selling concessions? Do you just
fall asleep until the debacle is
over? Do you daydream away? I
mean like, what do you do?
It's no secret that Airport-that
action-charged, t e n s i o n-filled,
emotionally-depraved, hype of the
year- has been playing at the
Michigan Theatre for eight con-
secutive weeks. Why has it been
running for eight consecutive
Well, who knows? It is because
Ann Arbor is not only one of the
hippiest, freakiest community in
the Midwest, but also a community
paradise for the redneck and the
bourgeoisie? Could it be that just
like you or I sometimes visits the
plastic Fox Village Theatre out
Stadium, the rednecks-thinking
that this is a free country-in-
vade theatres like the Michigan or
the State whenever MGM or Fox
try to get in good with the public
and stuff family entertainment
down their throats?
Well, maybe, it' could be. Some-
body told me the other day that
all the theatres around Ann Arbor
-- meaning the Michigan, the
State, the Campus, and, even the
University Drive-In, were owned
by this guy Butterfield. It figures
that once money gets tight and
the kids stay away from your
movies like the plague, that may-
be you ought to change your audi-
ence, cultivate a new clientele, like
they say in the-trade.a
When was the last time you saw
an outasight movie at one of these
Butterfield theatres? Zabriskie
Point, maybe, or Easy Rider; or
Alice's Restaurant, or The Ballad
of Cable Hogue? Were these really
the movies you enjoyed more than
anything else in the world? If
they were, that's cool as Peter
Fonda might say, but if they
weren't maybe everybody ought to
all get together and figure out
how they can get the capitalist
distributor Butterfield to start re-
presenting the_ people's interests.
But, wait. The people have al-
ready done all this and they even
show movies once and a while.
They show movies at Canterbury
House and Cinema Guild and
Cinema II and at, the Ark and
there are even places in Wash-
tenaw County like the Washtenaw
County Film Library where an
average-Joe like you or me can
take out movies, projectors and
screens free. You can see things
like the Red Balloon, early Chap-
in movies, a couple of W.C. Fields',
or maybe if you like to travel, they
have good travelogues. You don't
have to sit around and wait for
good stuff to come to town be-
cause maybe the money-makers
Twill decide like who are you?
I'm only saying that if you're
dissatisfied with the fact that
Airport has been here for eight
weeks and there is nothing else
worth seeing, well what can, you
do? I went to- see Airport and
fidgeted two hours in my seat
while I waited for it's thrilling
climax to a close. It's the type of
movie you can tell if you like it by
the cast, whom I won't mention by
name, but you know those people.
Anyway, good luck to ya, but if
you want to see a real good movie,
you might try Cinema Guild this
Friday and Saturday when they
play The Big Sleep with Hum-
phrey Bogart which is a killer. I
mean, that's if you want to be
subjective about it -and not lose
your objective eye.

Letters to .the Editor
To the Editor:
I read with great interest the
article about the fraudulent prac-
tices of Collier's Encyclopedia
(Daily, July 10). Six years ago my
husband and I bought a set of
Collier's in California under just
the sort of arrangement Lindsay
Chaney describes. Every year
since then we have paid $3.95 per
year for the yearbook.
This April we- received their
yearly inquiry about our present
address. Among the various en-
closed ads and brochures was a
form letter asking us to pay $4.95
this year-out of a sense of fair
play, as their costs have gone up.,
The actual bill, which arrived
about a month later with the year-
book itself, made no mention of
the dollar increase. It simply listed
the amount due as $4.95 plus 20
cents tax. Only by accident would
anyone have ever noticed that
form letter among all the ads in
I sent $3.95 plus 16 cent tax,
and have heard nothing more.

-Defending unpopularciet sik
By ERIC SIEGEL
"T THAS BECOME professionally and
legally dangerous -to be a lawyer
representing the poor, minorities, and
the politically unpopular."
-Harvard Civil Rights-Civil
Liberties Law Review
* * *
PHILIP J. HIRSCHKOP, a 35-year-
old ex-Green Beret and a lawyer for the
American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU),
despite all his legal and political acu-
men, never realized the degree of .truth
in the above statement. Until a few days
At that time, the disciplinary arm of
the U.S. District Court for the District
of Columbia recommended that Hirsch-
kop be suspended or disbarred for "pro-
fessional misconduct" during last Febru-
ary's trial of nine Catholic laymen and
clergymen who ransacked the Washing-
ton offices of Dow Chemical Company
in a protest against the Vietnam war.
The disciplinary arm, officially known
as the Committee on Admissions and
Grievances, whose members are ap-
pointed by the District Court judges,
charged that Hirschkop
-"failed to support the authority of
-"was often 'ude, offensive, discour-
teous, disrespectful, abusive and in-
-that he uttered statements that
were "prejudicial to the administration
The Court's grievance committee ini-
tiated a hearing on Hirschkop at the re-
quest of Judge John H. Pratt, who pre-
sided at the trial of the DC Nine. Judge
Pratt also charged Hirschkop with corl-
tempt of court during the seven day
trial, a charge that is now before the
U.S. Court of Appeals.
QUITE OBVIOUSLY, the Hirschkop
case has rather wideranging implica-
tions. These implications were quickly
recognized. Almost immediately after
the committee's recommendations were
released, ACLU released a statement of
"The grievance committee is, in ef-
fect, serving notice on all attorneys who
handle the defense of political dissi-
dents in the best spirit of the Bill of
Rights that their effectiveness in behalf
of their clients will bring them under
A day later, an ad hoc committee of
35 lawyers, many of them members of
ACLU, announced that they would be-
gin investigating the grievance commit-
tee. They issued a call for all Washing-
ton lawyers "concerned about the effect
of actions ... of the grievance commit-
tee . . on the vigorous advocacy by
lawyers of unpopular or controversial
causes" to join their investigating com-
mittee. In a prepared statement, the ad
hoc committee said:
"All lawyers recognize that the abuse!
of grievance committee procedures, as
well as the abuse of the contempt power
by courts, poses a chilling threat to any
lawyer who is dedicated to the provision
of equal justice to all persons and groups
in our society, particularly those whose
beliefs are shared by few."
INDEED, OUR WHOLE legal system,
with its manner of posting bonds, and
its manner of selecting juries (how
many people are actually tried by their
peers, i.e., blacks by blacks and radicals,
by radicals) is.weighted heavily enough
against these groups, without any at-
tempts by court-directed grievance com-
mittees to intimidate the lawyers who-
THE BROADER IMPLICATIONS not-
withstanding, there are many specific
facets of the Hirschkop case that are
intriguing in their own Way. For one
thing there are the statements he made
during the trial to Judge Pratt, saying,
among other things, that Pratt was
prejudiced and unable to conduct the
trial fairly. These statements were held
o constitute "professional misconduct."
Yet according to DC law,- if a lawyer
moves to have a judge dismissed, as
Hirschkop did, then he must state ex-
Then there is the question of why, of
the three lawyers who defended the DC
Nine and used similar tactics and lan-
guage, only Hirschkop-was recommend-
ed for suspension or disbarment. ACLU
lawyers think they have the answer:
Hirschkop was the most effective of all
the lawyers, and, besides, as a national
director of ACLU, he was a visible target
for their repression.
And what of Hirschkop? What is his
reaction to the whole thing? He said he
question's the committee's "ethics and
motives" while his appeal is still in liti-
gation. He also has shown that he is not
about to be intimidated by the commit-
tee, the District Court, or anyone else.
The day after the committee released its
recommendations, Hirschkop went to
Richmond to consult with one of his
