MAIL 12 The Arizona Republic Phoenix, Wed., Nov. 5, 1969 Suit filed to effect Scale's self-defense United Press International CHICAGO - Thirty lawyers, charging that U.S. District Court Judge Julius J. Hoffman had returned Black Panther leader Bobby Seale "to his pre-emancipation chains," yesterday petitioned to halt Scale's riot conspiracy trial until Seale is allowed to handle his own defense. The suit, filed in U.S. District Court, asked for an immediate show cause hearing on why the trial should not be halted until Seale is permitted to act as his own defense counsel. Seale is on trial with seven other men, charged with conspiring to incite riots during the 1968 Democratic National Convention. The petition also asked that Hoffman be required to allow Seale to defend himself. The injunction petition was assigned for hearing to U.S. District Judge Edwin A. Robson. The primary purpose of the suit, attorney Howard Moore Jr. of Atlanta said at a news conference, is to "gain for Bobby Seale the right to defend himself." Seale was shackled and gagged in the courtroom for three days last week when he erupted into wild outbursts in demanding the right to cross-examine prosecution witnesses. Seale Monday and yesterday tempered, both the frequency and tenor of his attempts to defend himself, but issued a new, handwritten NAUtolet L.A. lawyer talk on draft Northern Arizona Bureau FLAGSTAFF - A Los Angeles attorney whose speciali- ty is the draft law and its alleged inequities will be allowed to speak during the Nov. 14 Vietnam moratorium at Northern Arizona University, a campus speaker control board decdied yesterday. Attorney William Smith, 36, was approved by the board of seven faculty members and six students in an 11-2 vote, Brent Adams, student body president, said. Smith will speak on "The Draft and You" at 8 p.m. Nov. 14 at the University Union Auditorium. He will discuss the draft and the rights and responsibilities of young men who are subject to it, Adams said. His appearance will be sponsored by Associated Students of NAU Other speakers tentatively scheduled are Prof. Herbert Marcuse of San Diego; Dr. Morris Starsky, professor of philosophy at Arizona State University; William F. Buckley and Sen. Barry Goldwater. Some of the objections raised by board members ••to Smith's appearance on campus included these possibilities: . That a controversial figure might stifle funds supporting the university; That his presence in conjunction with a Vietnam moratorium might create a potentially explosive situation; And that he might be there more as an attorney peddling his own wares than as a guest speaker, Adams said. statement catling Hoffman "a racist, a Fascist and a pig, etc." Moore, a brother - in - law of Georgia legislator Julian Bond, said 30 attorneys, most of them black, collaborated on the suit on behalf of Seale and the Black Panther Party. Seale is national chairman of the Panthers. Scale's new statement denied he had disrupted the trial and said he "only demanded my rights" when he insisted, after "firing" his courtroom lawyers, that only San Francisco attorney Charles P. Garry, recovering from surgery, could represent him in court. Hoffman repeatedly refused to let Seale cross-examine witnesses. Finally, after the defendant's eruptions brought the trial to a near standstill, the judge had marshals gag and truss him. Without explanation, the gag and shackles were removed Monday. Prosecution testimony yesterday centered on butyric acid allegedly found in a bus terminal locker and in the purses of two women arrested in a Loop hotel the day after the convention. Undercover police agent William Frapolly had testified previously that defendant John Froines advocated that antiwar demonstrators spread the acid in hotels because "it smells like vomit" and told the policeman he gave the acid to Kathy Boudine and Constance Brown to strew around. Joanne Ryan, a policewoman, testified she found butyric acid in the purses of the two women at the Palmer House Hotel early on Aug. 30, !168. Policeman Ted McMillin testified the key opened locker No. 107 in the Greyhound terminal. He said the locker contained a one-half gallon bottle and several smaller bottles, all containing a clear white liquid that "smelled like vomit." Lease a new IMMEDIATE DELIVERY ON SOME MODELS 32O N.

Price said the highway department has located and started to build an alternate route up the San Francisco River out of Clifton, but that it will cost an estimated $20 million and will take 10 to 15 years to construct at the present rate of financing. The commission authorized Price to seek an opinion from the attorney general as to the authority of the company to close the present roadway, and indicated it would fight such a move. Meantime, Coons advised the commission that the company is seeking to build a detour or temporary alternate route, but that / it would involve about 14 piles of winding roadway and grades to replace about 1 miles of the present road. ; Price said ths highway department has been seeking a better location for this temporary detour, but said none had been found to date. «* EVERYTHING IN GLASS 41* «*»*.» JIM tUU *t>JL»tUUH • A1MM1 ' »-.tN~aT<,N7T^*/* r IIJISHOP ©LASS t I ALSO YUMA 1250 THIRD AVE.
