Speck on Tria BOSTON'(AP) -,'Dr. Benjamin Spock arid, four others go on trial' today in U.S. District Court on' charges of conspiring to counsel young men to evade the draft. . • The defendants, in addition to Spock,",are-William Sloane Coffin 'Jr.,''43, Yale University chaplain; Michael Ferber, 23, second-year graduate student at Harvard- University; Mitchell Goodman, 44, New York author arid teacher; and Marcus Raskin, 33, corrector of the Insti- tute for Political Studies in' Washington. At 65, Spock, the noted baby doctor, as the other defendants, could face up to five years in -prison and a $10,000 fine. They were indicted Jan. 5. ' The indictment lists 11 acts which tiie government said-were part of a ^nationwide program of resistance to^ the operations of the U.S. Selective Service System.-The government charged that the acts were a violation of the'Universal Military Training ^Laugh-in' Wins Emmies By BOB THOMA'S AP Movie-Television Writer HOLLYWOOD (AP) - It was "sock' it to -me" time at the Television .Academy as three Emmy awards were given to the,,raucous~"Rowan- and Martin's Laugh-in." The NBC show, a mad rocket-gun combination of outrageous' gags -and blackouts, won the award.'as best .musical or variety series, and special. Laugh-in was presented as a special before taking to the alias a series in midseason. _ ' .The show's platoon of writers won Emmies for best variety writing. In the other major categories, the awards Sunday night had the'look of a rerun. Repeat winners'-included: "'Lucille Ball, best actress-star hi a comedy series; Don Adams of "Get Smart", best actor-star-in a comedy series; .Barbara"'Bain of "Mission: impossible," best- actress- star., in: a, dramatic series; Bill Cosby of "I Spy,".best .actor- star in a dramatic series; "Mission: .Impossible," outstanding dramatic series. : Other awards went to Maureen Stapletbn,-best actress in a single •. dramatic role, for "Among .the Paths to-Eden"; Melvyn Douglas, .best actor in a. single dramatic role, for "Do Not Go Gentle into That Good Night"; best single dramatic program, "Elizabeth the Queen," Hallmark Hall of Fame; best comedy series, "Get Smart"; best supporting actress in a drama-, Barbara Anderson, "Ironside"; best-supporting actor .in a comedy, Werner : K'1«-nip ere r, "Hogan's leroes";-outstanding writing in drama, Loring Mandel ,"Do Not b Gentle 'into That: : Good Night." - ' .Two of the supporting Emmies brought a sentimental reaction. The awafd for best supporting actress in a comedy went to' Marion Lome, the fluttery witch of "Bewitched." She died two weeks'ago at age 82. Milburn Stone, the "Doc" of the long-running 1 ^ "Gunsmoke," won heavy applause as best sup- jorting-actor in a drama. Two second bananas who approach starring status were cited for "outstanding individual achievement": Art Carney of 'The Jackie -Gleason Show" and Pat Paulsen-of "The-Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour." In contrast to the over-length Oscar show, the Emmy telecast ran an hour and 45 minutes. But the awards were deadeningly jrofuse; there were 52 categor- es, and 10 writers claimed their Emmies for "Laugh-in.". The show itself proved an embarrassment to the television clan'.

A'defense spokesman said last week that the defense will maintain a position that what the government calls illegal acts were within the scope of legitimate protest, protected under the First Amendment of-the-Constitution. Two of the acts listed by the government include a meeting at Boston's Arlington Street Church last Oct. 16 and a demonstration four days later outside the Pentagon in Washington. At pretrial proceedings, Spock's attorney, Leonard -Boudin, said, 'the core of the indictment is the turning in of Selective Service cards at the Arlington Street Church Unitarian Universalist in Boston, and the turning in of these cards to the U.S. Justice Department. "The question is whether it is a crime-to take draft-cards and to turn them in to the U.S. attorney general ,as a form of protest —that's-what this case comes down to." The defense spokesman said later, "We'will-maintain 'there is no criminal intent, no conspiracy, no effort to corrupt." The defense originally tried to make the case.into a far-reaching test of the legality of the Vietnam war and.tjie constitutionality of- the nation's* draft laws. However,. Judge Fj-ancis J. W. Ford, who at 85 is one of the nation's senior jurists, greatly narrowed the issues by saying there would be no test of the draft laws at the trial. He also declared, "the legality of the Vietnam war is not a relevant issue in this case." Spock has become internationally known as a leading anti. war, antidraft demonstrator. Rebellious Youth Declare War France Under Virtual Seig€ By WILLIAM L. RYAN AP Special Correspondent PARIS (AP) - Rebellious youth in East and West have declared Avar on The Establishment.' In the East, the Establishment is the Communist party and its bureaucracy. In the West it is the bourgeoisie and its system. Whether they are ruled by Communists or capitalists, growing numbers of young people see around them a world they did not make 1 and do not want. .•-:-.' . The black flags of anarchism and the red flags of communism flying over the stately old_Sorbonne in Paris signal the students' rebellion which has pushed Charles de Gaulle's Fifth Republic; into deep crisis. "The bourgeois state must be destroyed," proclaims, a big, hand-printed sign on the portico of the university's chapel. Another says: ."In Warsaw, Prague, Madrid, Algiers, New York, Tokyo : and Rome,: students are-fighting" in the struggle against capitalism .and against the Stalinist bureaucracy." . : - ' .- ••'•'. France is virtually tinder siege because the student pro test has - billowed • into nationwide ' unrest strikes and protests against the government.' •Red China,-too, is an extreme example of war against "the high .and mighty bureaucrats.'" This struggle is controlled and directed by the followers of Mao Tse-tung. The target is. the. entrenched party bureaucracy, which after .the. :Communist takeover in 1950 became huge and difficult for Mao to handle, a power instrument in :the hands of others. Mao feared that the party would surrender its influ ence to the bureaucracy, the strong and authoritative Establishment.' '.-... In the Soviet Union, in Communist Poland and East Germany, it is youthful fermehl which bothers the political leaders. All the unrest has 1 had its distinct manifestations'.in resistance to established systems. As in the West, students and intellectuals join hands in protest. In the East, the protest is often against lack of intellectual and cultural-freedom. In the West, such freedoms are taken for granted, but the same young forces join hands in protest against conformity, against those they feel made a mess ot the world the young will inherit. In the United States and other countries of the Western Hemisphere, once again the Establishment finds itself the target of youngsters who resist conformi- ty- There are 600,000 university students in France, more than hree times the number 10 years ago, and the ranks of eligibles are growing all the 'time.

DeGaulle Consults with Ministers: By RODNEY ANGOVE PARIS (AP) - President; Charles de Gaulle consulted with his top ministers on France's growing crisis Sunday after hurrying back from Romania, but he. took no immediate action despite the rebellion rising across the country. De Gaulle returned home 14 lours early from his state visit ;o Romania, called back by the situation which began as a students' revolt and ballooned into the biggest strike wave to cripple France in three decades. More than 100 factories and an estimated two million workers were idle, and the number increased steadily. Strike votes were called today in many factories, including Sud-Aviatidn's main .plant Toulouse, where the Concorde supersonic .airliner 'is being 3uilt. The strikes started ' with Sud-Aviation's factory in Nantes last week: ; Orly, the big' Paris international airport, was almost deserted as airlines switched their [lights to Brussels and sent travelers to Paris on chartered juses. The French capital was also without trains, postal or telegraph services, subways, buses, garbage collectors and street cleaners. Workers occupied the city's electric and water plants over the weekend, but these services were continuing. Telephones'in the city were also operating normally. France's three' big .union federations . appeared unwilling to break' openly with De Gaulle, and none has called for a gener- al'strike. So .far their demands iave been modest: Higher pay with no specific target and a slight lowering of the retirement age. De Gaulle conferred with officials in charge .of national security and held, a long meeting with Premier' Georges Pompidou. Information Minister Georges Gorse .told newsmen "various measures concerning public order were examined." There was rib indication what those measures might' be, or when, they might- be .employed. But De Gaulle, gave no indication that he planned-to advance his radio-television address, to the nation, which .was still scheduled for'Friday. . • Pompidou facing a vote of censure; in the National .Assembly Wednesday, .- has • granted some .concessions, to- the : .students, and since then ; the student situation has -quieted • a ; bit. The: students are torn -between a desire, by ;many. :to take the year-end examinations and the determination.. - ; of.. others.-.-. to achieve drastic reform of the 'bourgeois social system." The radical wing of the student groups demanded a boycott of the exams to symbolize their desire for reform. But'this resulted in divisions.
