The flagrant disregard in the courtroom of elementary stand- ards nf proper conduct should not and cannot be tolcralocl." Therefore, Hie high conn said through Blnck, there are at least throe constitutionally per- missible ways for a trial judge to handle an obstreperous de- fendant. He can be bound and fagged, hul allowed in remain in the court room; he can lie di- pt) for contempt; or he can be taken out of the court room until he promises ID conduct himself properly.

Bui the ruse failed. Annul four hours after the plane landed with 115 persons aboard, Ihe pilot asked the con- trol tower to allow him lo lake off. "We waul to laud some 120 miles north of he said, apparently meaning at Pyon- gyan, the N'orlh Korean capital and Hie destination Ihe hijack- ers had demanded. Sources al the airport said the local manager of Japan Air Linos senl Ihe hijackers a note telling them the pilot could lake them lo Pyongyang but they should allow the olhcr 95 or more passengers and crewmen to get off in Seoul. Ttic sources said there was no immediate response from the hijackers. The Soulh Koreans had rigged up signs lo make Ihe airport ap- pear lo be Pyongyang's and Iried other devices to convince the hijackers Ihey were in the Communist North, but (he ruses failed. Learning from the pilot's call shortly before 7 p.m. thai the tricks had failed, tire authorities withdrew a group of South Ko- rean troops who had been stand- ing guard near Ihe plane in North Korean uniforms. Separate concmring opinion; were filed by Justices William 0. Douglas and William J. Bren- nan Jr. The decision is of major sig- nificance in lighl of a recent wave of disruptive trials. The recent highly publicized Irial of cighl Arsons accused of conspiring lo incite riots during the 19GB Democratic National Convention in Chicago was dis- rupted repeatedly. At its end, all Ihe remaining defendants were sentenced for contempt of court by Judge Julius G. Hoff- man. One ot Ihe original defend- ants, Botjby G. Scale, was bound and gagged for a time be- Inre a mistrial was declared in his case. The ruling, however, came in an otherwise routine holdup case in Chicago involving a man named William Allen. ruling meets the argu- ment that Ihe presence of noisy defendants must be tolerated at Iheir trials because they have a constitutional right lo confront their accusers. Backers of that jected by the Supreme Court have contended Ihat the consti- tutional right can be observed only by having the defendants present and unshackled during Iheir trials. The Allen and riol cases are connected in that Judge Hoff- man relied on an appeals court ruling in Ihe Allen case to bind and gag Scale, who later was sentenced to four years in pris- on for contempt. Ulack, in announcing the deci- sion from Hie bench, said, (he courls can't deny him (Allen) a fair Irial; he was trying to deny Iho courts their function." The justice said the Irial judge "cimdurled himself as a judge should." Allen, whose, defense was in- sanity, disrupted the Cook Coun- ty trial by tearing up his file, arguing with the judge and ad- vising him at one point: "When 1 go oul for lunc-h lime, you're going lo bo a corpse."
