Polish court clears
police of negligence

WARSAW, Poland (AP) - A court
yesterday acquitted two policemen in
the beating death of a 19-year-old
Solidarity supporter, but convicted two
ambulance drivers of negligence in the
case.
All four originally were indicted on
charges of beating the teen-ager to
death.
SOLIDARITY SUPPORTERS who
said police were responsible for the
death of Grzegorz Przemyk condemned
the verdict. As the decisions were read,
the dead man's father and about 30
family friends quietly walked out of the
packed courtroom in protest.
Janusz Jankowski, chairman of the
three-man judicial panel, looked up but
continued reading the verdicts as the
protesters filed out.
"So they finally proved there is no
justice in this country," one woman
said as she left. She asked not to be
identified. An estimated 200 people
were in the courtroom for the verdict.
PRZEMYK'S MOTHER, Barbara
Sadowska, was not present, although
she attended almost every session of
the trial. Ina statement on the first day
of the trial, Sadowska, an opposition
poet, charged authorities with covering
up for the police.
Solidarity leader Lech Walesa con-
demned the killing in a statement read
during Przemyk's funeral, but he was

on vacation with his family and
unavailable for comment.
Two doctors charged with negligence
in treating Przemyk committed an
"unintended offense" and the charges
against them were dropped under an
amnesty passed by Parliament a year
ago, the judge ruled.
PRZEMYK'S DEATH became a
symbol for Solidarity supporters who
cited it as an example of brutality
used by police to crush the outlawed
labor federation. An estimated 20,000
mourners attended his funeral in War-
saw on May 19, 1983, in a peaceful
protest against police brutality.
Przemyk was detained in Warsaw the
evening of May 12, 1983 for disorderly
conduct. He was taken from the police
station by ambulance to the Hoza first
aid station and then released. He died
two days later.
The trial, which began May 31,
received prominent attention from
Poland's official news media, including
almost nightly coverage of the
testimony on the evening news broad-
cast.
The court ruled the ambulance atten-
dants, who drove Przemyk to the first
aid station, had endangered his life
through negligence and improper care,
but said it could not determine the
killer.

An addition to the Earl V. Moore
building, home of the University's
School of Music, will be among the
new structures to appear on campus
in the next year.
With ,construction still on
schedule, the new addition should be
open by January 1985 - expanding
the facilities for music and dance
students to rehearse and performs
large productions in a more
professional atmosphere, according
to Morris Risenhoover, assistant
dean in the music school.
RISENHOOVER, chief advisor to
the construction site, said since the
stage of the new vocal arts center is
the exact size of the stage at the
Power Center, performers will have
the opportunity to rehearse in more
realistic setting than in a classroom,

where most now rehearse.
Included in the new structure will
be two auditoriums: a 120-seat
organ recital studio boasting an
organ built in Boston specifically for
the University and a 166-seat vocal
arts center for the music school
productions.
The new addition will also house
the Stearns Collection - a collection
of nineteenth century exotic in-
struments.
University graduate Maurice
Allen, the architect for the addition,
attempted to maintain original ar-
chitectural style of the Moore
Building in the new addition.
The addition is funded entirely by
private donations from both cor-
porations and individuals. The cost
of the structure will be $1.8 million.
To date, $1.1 million has been raised.
