One of the most significant as-

By RONALD KOTULAK
A Supreme Court law clerk
does not have mysterious, be-
hind-the-scenes power as some
people think, Robert J. Hoerner,
'58L, who was picked as one of
Chief Justice Earl Warren's clerks,
said,
"We have no more Influence
than the strength of our ideas."
People tend to believe, he indi-
cated, that because a clerk helps
draw up a Supreme Court
opinion, he is in a position to in-
fluence the outcome.
Judge Instructs
Whatever tack a clerk takes in
writing an opinion, he pointed out,
is given to him by the judge."
Hoerner, who is the first student
from the University to serve as a
plerk in more than four years, said
the Washington position will allow
him to become acquainted with
federal law practice.
Law clerks serve for a period of
13 months. "This will give me
time to decide on whether I want
Washington as a career," he said.
Each justice is aided by two clerks
except Warren who has three and
William 0. Douglas, who has only
one.
Sends Record
To become a clerk an applicant
sends his law school record and a
brief letter explaining his qualifi-
cations to one of the justices.
With all the students applying,
Hoerner, who has a 3.8 average,
said, "it's usually the recommen-
dation of the school that pushes
you in."
After the qualifications of a
student are screened he is inter-
viewed by a representative of the
Court. "I was called to Washing-
ton by Warren," he said, "it was
an informal chat with no quizzes
on legal issues."

According to the students, the
main reason bikes are parked in
front of the Undergraduate Li-
brary entrance is that it is more
convenient," a survey indicated.
Many were even ignorant of the
fact that there are bicycle racks
nearby.
Reasons for leaving bikes in
the pam in front of the library
varied. Some students left them
'there because they would only be
in the library for a short time,
others did so because "everybody
does it."
one left his bike because he
wished to hide the fact that it
was not locked.
One student explained that he
did no use the bike racks because
they were poorly constructed, and
many times when he pulled out his
bike several others came out too,

resulting in scratches and re-
quiring added time to replace
them.
Opinion among the bicyclists
was divided as to whether or not
it was all right for the bikes
to be there.
Among those who disapproved,
some recomended placing bike
racks at the entrance to correct
this situation, some suggested
placing a "Please Park Bikes in
the Recks" sign where it could
be seen, and the others felt that
nothing could be done.
"Pedestrians"+ weaving their way
through the maze of bikes were
also asked for opinions of the situ-
ation. A few felt that blocking the
entrance was a bad idea, while
others replied that it didn't make
any difference to them.

WASHINGTON BOUND-Picked as one of Chief Justice of the
Supreme Court Earl Warren's law clerks, Robert J. Hoerner Is the
first clerk from the University in more than four years. The job
lasts 13 months beginning this summer, and includes a month's
vacation with pay.

The impact of Supreme Court
decisions are important, he as-
serted, because they set a trend
for lower courts to follow. Present-
ly student editor of the Michigan
Law. Review, Hoerner said he
wants to examine the various in-
fluences, that may shape the
Court's decision in controversial
cases.}
A law clerk, Hoerner indicated,
performs these duties:

quette Requests Dental Program

The city of Marquette recently
requested that the dental decay
control program developed here be,
extended to residents in its local-
ity.
The program affects decay con-
trol through guided diets. It was
begun by Dr. Philip Jay and nu-
tritionist Helen M. Benson, both
of the dentistry school, under a
state grant for research in Human
Resources. According to Dr. Jay,
it has succeeded, in ridding thou-
sands of patients of dental cares.
Dr. Jay exlained that lactobacil-
lus, a bacterium very closely asso-
ciated with dental decay, develops
when particles of food with high
sugar content -are left in the
mouth.
-Prrares Diet
A low sugar diet, prepared from
observation of the patient's eating
habits and saliva cultures, does

away with the cause for many'
decay problems.
Under Dr. Jay's guidance, Miss
Benson has drawn up a diet almost
lacking in sugars and starches, to
be followed by severely distressed
patients.
There are three consecutive
plans: Low starch-no sugar;
starch permitted-no sugar; and
starch permitted-sugar permitted
with one meal daily.
Dieters must omit such desir-
ables as bottled and powdered bev-,
erages, beer, wine, mixed drinks,
chocolates, candy or sugar.
They are allowed coffee or tea
as desired, puffed wheat or puffed
rice, natural and cottage cheeses,
certain selected meats, fruits, and
vegetables, and unlimited amounts
of sugar substitutes (saccharin,
sucaryl, or sweeta).

In a diet manual, Miss Benson
provides recipes to make the most.
of allowed sugarless ingredients.
Special ice cream, and lemon, cof-
fee, orange, and tomato. gelatine
may be served as desserts.
New Dessert
Cream cheese combined with
mustard, minced parsley, and
chopped nuts may "make a tasty
addition.to any of the dessert re-
cipes provided."
The program was first put into
effect in the University dental
clinic. Since then it has been ex-
tended to centers in Flint, Grand
Rapids, Traverse . City, Detroit,
City, ,Detroit and now Marquette.
The Marquette addition, which is
housed in the Northern Michigan
College Health Service, has been
functioning since January.

1) He reads and make com-
ments on the petitions to have the
High Court hear the case,
Reads Briefs
2) To present a balanced pic-
ture of the cases that are accepted
by the Court, he reads and com-
ments on the briefs of both the
defendant and plaintiff.
3) He may prepare a draft or
,do research on a prospective opin-
ion once the Court has reached a
decision.
4) Clerks for Chief Justice
Warren have an additional' task
of reading, doing research and
commenting on petitions from
those unable to hire a lawyer. This
group consists mainly of convicted
criminals.
One of the ethical obligations
-of a clerk, he related, is to refrain
from discussing a case while it is
before the Court.

the Glenview office. Here, in. the frame
room, I'm checking floor space re-
quired by the proposed equipment.
Believe me, the way our business is
growing, every square foot counts."

"3:10 p.m. Then I drive over to the

engineering assignment of mine is in
its final stages. Here I'm suggesting'
a modification to the Western Elec-

"3:30 p.m. Before starting back to

might fit in just fine at one of our
other offices. I'll look into it tomorrow.'
