Beason Presents Film^
Reflects on Berrigans
The Program The Response
Tom Beason, an SA grad
ate connected with the de-
ense in the Berrlgan conspi-
acy trial of Harrisburg, Pa.,
as here on campus Tuesday
0 show the film “The Holy
utlaw,” and give background
formation on the proceed-
ngs.
The film, “The Holy Out-
aw,” deals with the justifi-
ation of the actions of Dan
Berrigan, a Jesuit priest who
as convicted of the destruc-
lon of draft files with home-
ade napalm; and later charged
th conspiracy toblowupheat-
ng systems in Washington, D.
and the planned kidnapping
f Presidential aid Henry Kls-
inger. The actions of Berri-
as shown in the film,
ere based on his convictions
egarding these questions:
ould the value of draft files
e placed higher than the value
f human lives lost in Vietnam,
d should one passively submit
0 an unjust legal system?
Halfway through the showing
f the film Tom Beason re
flected on his own personal
dealings with the trial, and an
swered questions from the au-
ience on Dan Berrigan and his
rother Phil, who was also in-
icted and cited as one of the
leaders of the conspiracy. Mr.
Beason stressed the Irregulari-
ies of the pre-trial proceed
ings —the serving of subpoe
nas to defendants by FBI a-
gents rather than US marshals;
’"e use of a John Doe subpoe-
a which permits questioning
0 go beyond the boundaries of
charges made; the dismissal
‘f charges against Dan Berri
gan who was cited as a leader
of the conspiracy by no less
han the director of the FBI—
J. Edgar Hoover; the keeping
in solitary confinement of Phil
Berrigan until his brother—who
ad gone underground to pre-
vent imprisonment—surren
dered; the refusal of the govern
ment to divulge whether their
ine of questioning would be
ased on Information obtained
illegal use of wiretap
ping
Now you’ve seen “The Holy
Outlaw;” you’ve read about the
Berrigan case; you’ve had a
chance to meet, and talk, with-
Tom Beason. Now ACT.
One possible line of action
is the Crafts Workshop this
Saturday, Sept. 14th. The goals
of the workshop are threefold:
First, to raise money,
through a local sale of crafted
articles, for the Berrigan De
fense Fund;
Second, to awaken Laurin-
burg to the particulars of the
Berrigan case;
And third, to teach those
Interested exciting new crafts.
Please note that of top
priority is fund raising. We
ask, therefore, that in the weeks
following the workshop, par
ticipants donate a few examples
of their handiwork to be sold in
Laurinburg. All contributions
are, of course, completely vo
luntary. Details of the sale
will be announced shortly.
Final adjustments in the
workshop schedule are now
completed and the Individual
craft members should be re
ceiving notices through the mall
announcing time, place, and
needed materials. Generally,
all crafts will get under way at
10:00 in the Science Lab; the
second shift of candle-makers
will convene at 2:00.
The workshop is open to all
members of the St. Andrews
Community. So come on over to
the Lab, Saturday at 10:00 —
and bring a friend. For further

Moyers (ext 324) or JUl Robin

Action in the Interdormitory
Senate meeting Monday night
took the form of continuing de
bate on open dorm policy in re
lation to the current concern
of the Student Life committee,
and discussion and approval of
the Student Association budget
for 1971-72.
Last week a committee was
formed to draft a recommen
dation to the residence di
rectors concerning the granting
of permission for open suites.
The proposal was presented to
the Senate, and when it became
known that only one dorm had
been having any “hassle” It
was decided that the proposal
be filed for future reference.
Eddie Smith, president of
Orange Hall, suggested that
Season tickets for the Hig-
land Players’ 1971-72 season
will go on sale Monday here.
Prices for the tickets, which
will be good for five plays and
any experimental productions
during the year are $3 for stu
dents and $4.50 for anyone else.
Tickets may be purchased
from any members of the High
land Players or from the Thea
tre Office, Room 115.
DR. ROSCOE BROWN
Piedmont Starts

“The Social Revolution in

York University, will be on the
campus as the first Piedmont
University CenterVisiting
Scholar for the new school year.

Earlier in the day, at 11:30
a.m„ Dr. Brown will meet in
fer mally for discussion with
students and faculty. As part of
his lecture tour sponsored by
the Piedmont University Cen
ter, Dr. Brown will earlier in
the week speak at Elon College,
At NYU since 1951 and full
professor since 1960, Dr.
Brown, Is a graduate of Spring
field College with M. Ed. and
Ph. D, from NYU. He co-hosts
“Black Lettres,” a television
series of WCBS-TV, now in its

taged youth. Dr. Brown also

fairs, established at NYU in ho
nor of the late Dr. Martin Lu
ther King, Jr.
dorm officers get together with
residence directors to decide
what would constitute “mis
use” of the open suite privilege
for that individual dorm.
Ken Watkins, President of
the Student Association, ex
plained to the group the cur
rent action by the Student Life
committee. The committee had
been given a mandate from the
faculty to check into the situa
tion of open dorms, and the new
Student Life committee, with
its new faculty members Dr.
Donald Barnes and Dr. Bill
Morgan, is acting on the man
date as ordered. The proposal
that dorms be open from 7 to 9
p.m. on Wednesday and Sunday,
and from 8 to 11 p.m. on Fri
day and Saturday was submitted
by Dr. Barnes only as an open
ing “trial balloon.” Dave Beale,
president of Mecklenburg Hall,
and Dean Decker proposed that
both Dr, Hart, President of the
College, and the whole Student
Life committee have a joint
meeting with the student Senate
to discuss the issue.
Jay Bender, Treasurer of the
Student Association, presented
the budget for the Senate’s con
sideration. He explained that al
though Dr. Hart and Dr. Davis,
the college business manager,
had appropriated an increase of
$200 for the Student Associa
tion over last year. The budget
had yet to reflect an $1800
deficit which must be assessed
from the various organizations,
and paid this year. Jay said
that he had tried to make sure
most organizations got the
money they thought they would
need, and then announced that
he would not sign any requisi
tions that would put groups “in
the red.” It was noted that
money for refrigerator rentals
received by the Cabinet would
be applied towards the deficit.
Questions raised about the bud
get concerned 1) the great dif
ference in the amount of money
spent by the Mens’ and Wom
ens’ Recreation Associations;
2) the increase allotted the
Peace Corps; and 3) the amount
allotted Farrago. Several Sen
ate members objected to the
purchase of trophies for intra
mural sports. Laurie Ewart, di
rector of the Peace Corps, de
scribed the need for transporta
tion and costs of their 14 on
going projects. Randy von Un
worth, president of Winston-
Salem Hall, spoke of Farrago’s
increased outlay for scheduled
entertainers. The budget was
unanimously approved.
The following Is the budget submitted by Student Associa
tion treasurer Jay Bender and approved by the Senate Monday
night.
