Allen Not Guilty

.Mock Trial Cage
Tar Heel columnist Rick
Allen was found not guilty for
selling obscene literature in
Chapel Hill in mock trial
proceedings at the UNC Law
School Friday afternoon.
Allen was "charged" with
selling copies of "Star Lust
Motel" at Kemp's Ahead Shop.
Professor Kenneth Broun
served as presiding judge. Law
students Jim Brown and Joel
Stevenson acted as prosecutor
and defense attorney,
respectively. Members of the
jury consisted of
undergraduate students who
volunteered for duty.
Bill Faison, arresting officer,
said he had responded to a
complaint by a Mrs. Williford
that Allen had sold obscene
literature to her 14-year-old
son. Faison said he gave Allen
the Miranda warnings and
Allen had replied that Faison
'was busting up a good thing."
Football star Don
McCauley, who had earlier
been "charged" with assaulting
Cathe Herman after reading the
stimulating book, said the
book was the reason he
attacked the frail and fragile
Tri-Delt coed.
Witness Barbara Henderson,
a psychiatrist, told the court
that after reading passages in
the book "any normal male
might find himself yielding to
his baser instincts and might
lose his self-control."
Mike Cotten, a literary
expert, testified the book was
obscene. Defense then
established that Cotten receives
a fee for testifing at obscenity
trials.
Testifying on his own
behalf, Allen said he had not
read the book himself, only the
blurb on the inside cover. The
defense claimed that since he
was unaware of the book's

Luther Moore, another
literary critic, rejected the
notion that the book was
obscene and said the book was
"not only socially interesting
but also socially relevant."
He said a moral lesson could
be learned from the book.
Bill Lamb, a country Baptist
preacher, told the court he had
not been offended by the book
and even considered it to be
indicative of community
standards.
Dave Williams, a
psychiatrist, testified that
McCauley would have been
motivated by any suggestive
book, not just "Star Lust

Student Body President
Tommy Bello Thursday vetoed
a Student Legislature bill
which provided for the
elimination of funds to several
student organizations if the
administration tries students
without their consent.
Bello vetoed the Bill to
Insure the Autonomy of
Student Courts because it was
passed by the 1969-70
legislature and he felt it is the
responsibility of the new
Legislature to act on this
matter, he said.
The bill was passed by a 17
to 12 margin in an April 22
Legislature meeting.
Speaking before the
forty -ninth assembly of the
Student Legislature, Bello
based his reasoning on four
points:
the new Legislature should
begin immediately to take a
stand on the disruptions
policy. The most effective
stand they can take is not to be
limited by legislation passed by
the old Legislature.
disagreement of the Men
and Women's Honor Courts to
uphold the bill. There should
be a joint stand taken by the
judicial, executive and
legislative branches of Student
Government.
personal belief that
cutting off funds to student
courts and - the attorney
general's office might not be
the best way to insure the
accountability of the student
judicial process.
the dismissal of the Alex
Willingham case by the
administration which was
trying him under the
disruptions policy.
The bill would have cut
funds from 10. student
organizations and would
request student courts to cease
operation seven days after the
administration tried a student
outside student judicial
processes.
Bello stressed that although
he felt some action needed to
be taken in such instances, he
did not feel the new
Legislature should necessarily
follow the lead of the old.
The student body president
sophomore had not held the
post in many years but he was
confident he could do a good
job.
A member of Delta Upsilon
fraternity, Mitchiner said no
concrete plans had been made
for the yearbook as yet.
Fromen, speaking for the
Publications Board, said he felt
all of the appointees are
"qualified and will' do a good
job next year."
He said no business manager
has yet been appointed for the
Carolina Quarterly because no
one has applied for the
position. Anyone interested in
the position should contact
Fromen or any member of the
board.

led off the meeting by
expressing hopes of Student
Government-Student
Legislature cooperation in the
corning year.
"I sincerely feel that the
coming year will be a
watershed for the whole
process of Student
Government either we work
together considering what is
best for the student body or
we alienate the majority of
students on this campus.
"We will witness the rise of
student respect for the Student
Government or we will see the
stagnation of that structure."
Bello expressed his personal
willingness to work with the
Student Legislature for joint
achievement in the coming
year.

Faculty Club Petition
Gains Student Support
By Terry Cheek
Staff Writer
Morehead Residence College
has gained nearly 100 percent
response on a petition which
calls for making the Faculty
Club part of the facilities of
the college.
Morehead Governor Steve
Saunders said Friday only one
signature was need to make the
response 100 percent.
"I can't remember when
any large group has obtained
100 percent on a petition for
any cause," said Saunders.
The University Space and
Planning Committee, chaired
by Assistant to the Chancellor
Claiborne Jones, will be
meeting Monday to decide the
fate of the now vacant Faculty
Club.
The committee has the
responsibility of administering
the use of all the buildings on
.campus. Primarily a function
of the Un i versi ty
administration, the committee
has one student member.
The petition points out that
the Faculty Club is centrally
located among the components
of Morehead Cobb, Graham,
Ay cock, Stacy, Everette and
Lewis dormitories and that
Morehead 'is currently
without adequate social
facilities and has no office
whatsoever."
Saunders said he is the only

Bello cited a need for more
cooperation within the
executive and legislative
branches of the Student
Government. He called for an
end to the conflict of "one
against the other."
"Tonight will not be the last
time I am seen on this chamber
floor," Bello predicted. "I feel
it essential that the Legislature
and the president work
together."
Turning to legislative
business, Bello mentioned the
appointment of three officers
to be submitted to the Ways
and Means Committee.
Guil Waddell was appointed
treasurer of the student body,
David Crump to fill the vacant
seat on the Student Supreme
Court and Steve Saunders as
presidential advisor on

The petition also stated
"next fall all incoming
freshmen will be required to
live on campus for two years,
thus placing an obligation on
the University to improve
on-campus living."
The final notation of the
document said any
improvements in the residence
college system will be of
general benefit to students.

said he saw no reason to veto
it but that several charges
needed to be made.
In other legislative
business:
Charlie Dean was elected

Susan Case by a 30 to 12 vote.
Gene Yates was also
nominated but withdrew his
name.
A bill to eliminate

Government was introduced
by legislator Gerry Cohen.

activities. Using the large room
as a 24-hour social lounge, the
college plans also to establish a
seminar room, a library, a
study lounge and a central
office.
Support for granting the use
of the club to Morehead is not
restricted to the residents of
the college. The Committee on
University Residential Life, an
advisory committee to
Chancellor J. Crlyle Sitterson,
has recommended the facility
be given to Morehead.
The proposal has also gained
the approval of the Residence
College Federation, the Men's
Residence Council, the
Association of Women
Students, Student Body
President Tommy Bello and
other student leaders, the
Board of Social Lieutenant
Governors and Student
Legislature.
Saunders said he expects the
proposal may have trouble in
the Space Committee. He said
groups which are now in
"temporary" buildings, such as
ROTC, are being considered.
The petition has already
been assured support by some
of the members on the Space
Committee, said Saunders.
"If the Space Committee is
to represent the best wishes of
the University community, it
must take into consideration
this accurate expression of the
student's wishes," said
Saunders.
