District Court today charged with conspiring to set off the bloody clashes between police and anti-war demonstrators at the 1968 Democratic National Convention. Selection of jurors is scheduled to begin this morning in the extra-large Ceremonial Courtroom of the U.S. Courtroom with Judge Julius J.Hoffman, 74,presiding. The defendants, who call themselves The Conspiracy, have said they will call upon their si^^rters to demonstrate against the trial, the first under the anti- riot provisions of the 1968 Civil Rights Act. Some 700 persons gathered Tuesday night in Lincoln Park, scene of some of the worst of the convention week clashes, and marched more than two miles to the courthouse carrying lighted candles. Defendants Named Police arrested oh e youth after a scuffle but the march proceeded into the Loop without further incident. , ■ _ The defendants are Abbie Hoffman, 32, New York, leader of the Youth International party-Yippies; David Bellinger, 53, New York, editor of Liberation magazine;'Rennie Davis, 29, Chicago, organizer for the National Mobilization Committee to End the War in Vietnam; John R.

Seale, 32, of Oakland, Calif.; national chairman of the Black Panther party. Motions Denied The defense sought a hearing on its contention that wiretap evidence against the eight was obtained illegally, but Judge Hoffman ruled that the propertime for such a hearing was after the trial. —**!£ the defendants, are ac qpited," he said, "the government can save the expense of such a hearing." The judge has also denied niotions thathed__sojialify himself on grounds of prejudice and that he have the trial moved to a larger arena. Once jury selection is ended in the Ceremonial Courtroom, the evidence will be heard in Judge Hoffman's smaller court. UJS. Marshall John C. Meiszner has brouigbtindep- uties from across the nation for extra security and a contingent of Chicago police has been deputized toas- sist them. Schoenbrun blames Vietnam War on poor m Columbia University senior lecturer David Schoenbrun believes the war in. Vietnam would' have ended a long time ago, but **unqualified" reporters have been covering the war. The former CBS newsman told the crowd in Warriner auditorium Monday, "I feel the war is wretched, and" the media has not done a good job". . Reporters;unfamiliar with the area and history were sent dver, "and these newsmen accepted as troth information sent in government: releases'% according to Schoenbrun. Schoenbrun attacks objectivity as a **false god", and said, "The principal of objectivity is one of the most dangerous things in the world. It is nobly expressed by members of the media, but it is terribly damaging". Schoenbrun attacked basic journalistic principles, such as cramming the facts into .a small space,.and placed the blame on the introduction of the wire service. He said people were „ not sure the wire would hold up for a long story. •Today we don't have this problem with the wire, . but we get the same kind of reporting", he added. The first one-year course in Vietnam history at Columbia was taught by Schoenbrun in 1957, when he joined the faculty there* „ New student conduct code reporting forces revision Schoenbrun witnessed some of the major events' in "history as a correspondent, including the American landings in North Africa, the capture of Berlin, the Indo-China and Korean wars, and the Marshall Plan - up to the Kennedy administration and the present. He Won the Overseas Press C lub award for his interview with Charles de Gaulle, the only exclusive interview ever given by Hie former French presi- '■* dent. The author of ••Vietnam: How we got in and how ,we can get out'% Schoenbrun advocates immediate withdrawal from Vietnam. ••The war has bloodied us, and it's time we get out. If we could wash the mud and blood from it,' it's still a pret&y good flag", he fe&s. People in the news media always separate the facts from the opinion, according the Schoenbrun. **Well, people dont read the editorial page, they read the front page,, and I believe the facts can't be separated from the opinion if the media wants to give the public the whole truth", he. said. Schoenbrun slammed television news coverage, say- . ing, "What you have there is a 40 second description of a major news event, sandwiched in between a post nasal dri£ and an underarm deodorant". The judicial review section of the student body constitution must be revised due to the formulation of a new student conduct code. The. student conduct code consists of a series of revisions of general policies, including the standards of conduct, university sanctions and procedures of .review. • , The purpose of the revision is to update the present conduct code. The guidelines for the code were taken from the "Joint Statement of Rights and Procedures for Students." ' The joint statement was a combined effort of stu* dent professional' organizations around the country, including the National Student Association and the American Association of Colleges and Universities. Central's previous conduct code was vague and did not specify in detail which violations were subject to penalty according to Philip Hummel, assistant dean of students he said, "the rules should be specified for the good, of the student." The revision of the Judicial system is the responsibility of1 Student Senate. Lou Oates, student body president, is heading the revision committee. Working with Oates are Bob Baszler, Montrose, senior, Gerald Branch, Otsego senior and Tim HrUska, Allen Park junior.
