12 to 15 Years
Given Cocoanut
Grove Owner
Welansky Sentenced
To 'Hard Labor' on
By The Associated Press
BOSTON, April 15.- Night club
owner Barnett Welansky, his face as.
expressionless as it was during the
four weeks of his trial, tonight began
serving a 12 to 15 years sentence "at
hard labor" on manslaughter charg-
,es resulting from the Cocoanut Grove
holocaust that took 490 lives last
Nov. 28.
A few hours earlier, when Welan-
sky appeared in Suffolk Superior
Court for imposition of sentence, a
defense counsel motion for a stay
was denied and Attorney Herbert F.
Callahan immediately indicated he
would appeal.
The courtroom was crowded and
many of the curious were forced to
stand in the corridors outside as
Judge Joseph L. Hurley pronounced
concurrent 12 to 15 year sentences
on each of the 19 manslaugter
counts of which Welansky was con-
There were defense motions for a
new trial, a continuance and arrest
of judgment prior to the sentencing,
but all were denied and Welansky's
counsel said that he would submit a
bill of exceptions to all three denials.

F.lmer Davis, OWI director, told a
press conference yesterday the food
report had been held up since Janu-
ary. He explained: "There were dif-
ferences between two government
(agriculture department) agencies
over what were the facts."
Recently, he said, he had held it

ity and maturity, we could well waive
many of the entrance requirements,
not only for the duration but for all
time," he concluded.,
Prof. David M. Trout, director of
the Michigan Study of Teacher Ed-
ucation, speaking yesterday at theI
opening session of the Fourteenth
Annual Conference on Teacher Edu-
cation said that he was "profoundly
im-pressed with the deep and wide-
spread interest in teacher education
throughout the state."
Prof. Trout said that "colleges are
more than eager to learn anything
they can about teachers' education
but in this state the professional
standards are still rather vaguely de-
fined." He pbinted out that "there
are almost no sound standards for
the selection of persons for the
teaching profession." Although "we
can predict the supply ,,of teachers'
pretty well," Prof. Tisout said, "no
use has been made of this data."
Rural, Urban Standards Contrasted
Prof Trout called attention to the
fact that only one year of county
normal training is required to teach
in one-room rura-l schools in con-
trast to the higher standards re-
quired by urban schools. He re-
marked "we have built up a favored
class within our own program for
selection of teachers." From his ownI
clinical experience, Prof. Trout ob-
served that "people are crammed
with neuroses caused by faulty,
teaching early in their lives."
Advocating interchange of practice
and programs - and interrelation
among the,, forty-two schools in
Michigan which train teachers, Prof.
Trobut said, "I do not believe in aI
aissez-faire set-up in Michigan."
