Argus (Newspaper) - December 21, 1970, Fremont, California The Argus Page 4 Fremont Newark California monday december judge 9s ruling could Hurt radicals disrupting trial Paul Anderson Tacoma Wash. The Seattle conspiracy trial is Over for the moment but the Legal implications of its Sud Den end May strongly affect future trials where disruptive courtroom tactics Are employed. . District judge George Boldt s declaration of a mis trial and his ruling that the defendants must serve their contempt sentences before a new trial can be held May chill the Hopes of radicals who plan to use the courts As a political platform. But the Boldt which the judge said came As an answer to his daily Pray must first be upheld in the Appeal courts. In essence the Boldt doctrine involves calling a mistrial when the actions of the defendants have in the opinion of the judge prejudiced their own Case with the jury. Then the judge would sen tence the defendants for contempt of court and uphold the beginning of a new trial until the contempt terms had been served. If disruptions continue to occur in subsequent trials the procedure could be repeated apparently endlessly. Not Only could the use of such a plan have a direct effect on limiting courtroom outbursts but it would deny Radical defendants news exposure and fund raising appearances Between trials. In Short Boldt s plan has considerably upped the Ante for those defendants who con Sider their strongest defense to be a direct attack on the court the court room itself. However attorneys for the seven defendants charged with conspiring to damage Federal property at a feb. 1 demonstration at the . Courthouse in Seattle have already started vigorous a peal. Attorney Michael Tigar said he knew of no Case where a mistrial had been called on such grounds. Tigar a Law professor at Urcla said it was possible there never will be another trial for the Seattle seven. His Appeal will attempt to show the mistrial order was not justified and a second trial would be double jeopardy. Boldt called the mistrial dec. 10 after the six male defendants held up the Start of the court session for nearly 30 minutes to protest part of the overflow crowd of spectators being forced to wait outside in the rain.

Dec 27 Dubcek backers punished Prague who kept his Job has lost his Hon or he who kept his Honor has lost his behind this grim Little epigram lies the reality of hardship for hundreds of thousands of czech slovaks caught in the purges which have sliced through this nation in the past year. Men who once stood at the top of their profession have been dropped into manual la Bor or enforced unemployment All because they approved the 1968 reforms of Al e x a n d e r Dubcek or condemned the soviet led in Vasion that ended those re forms. Victims among the victims Are some famous names. Emil Zatopek a four time olympic Champion Tours the Countryside with a surveying team. Jiri Hochman a leading journalist does manual labor in a provincial factory. Frantisek Kriegl a prominent surgeon and former member of the communist party s ruling politburo is an old age pensioner even though he is Only 62 and in Fine health. Dubcek himself the for Mer Leader of the no Job at All. He lives in Idle Ness in his summer House near Bratislava. Honor to have been victimized like this is a Mark of Honor with Many czechoslovak. But it makes life no easier for the victims. The purge of the communist party has ended now. More than of the 1.4 million party members lost their cards. Membership of Many others was suspended. Some suspended Mem Bers have kept their jobs. Ousted members have been Lucky to find manual labor. A second stage of the purge is beginning now. It is aimed at no party members who must undergo a close screen ing of their politics. Questions typical questions in this screening include do you assess the 1968 military intervention of the Warsaw pact countries have you done since 1967? give details. You go abroad in re cent years. If so Why and where you have Contact with foreigners Are your friends this purge of non Par to members has hit especially hard in education and the mass Media. Seventy professors at Prague s Charles University have been fired be cause of reformist lean Many factories refuse to accept purged White Collar workers for fear of their bad influence on workers. Therefore Many leading Pra Guers who do not want to go to the provinces Lake a Job on the Prague subway construction Sites. A joke Here says the subway is being built entirely by intellectuals. New problems loom. A Law is expected Early in 1971 which will give factories right to keep workers from changing their jobs. That will mean that purged reformers now working As factory hands would be unable to return to their former jobs when times improve.
