Summer .Exams Trouble Law School-

Disciplinary actions continued
this week against those students
who failed to meet the September
1 deadline for completing exam-
inations for the 1969-70 academic
year. Some 25 to 30 students may
eventually be required to make
up examinations and - in some
cases - class hours before the
hearings conducted by the Admin-
istrative Board are completed.
The hearings stem from the
summer take-home examination
option offered to first- and second-
year students last May as a
means of conducting exams while
releasing concerned students for

work in Washington, D.C., or in
their home communities against
U. S. involvement in Cambodia.
While all third-year students
took their examinations and de-
grees in June, over 900 first and
second-year students chose to
take one or more exams at home.
These exams -were to be taken
under the same conditions as the
regularly scheduled examination
and had to be delivered to the
school, postmarked on or before
September 1, to satisfy the take-
home requirements.

.Freund Opposes Women's Law

By Michelle Scott
Paul A. Freund - Constitu-
tional Law authority, Carl M.
Loeb University Professor, and
opponent of the proposed Wom-
en's Rights Amendment-gave
a luncheon talk sponsored by the
Law School's Young Republican
Club last week in the Pound
Building large meeting room.
He immediately made note of
the fact that the large female
delegation in the audience prob-
ably disagreed with his much-
quoted opinions.
Freund insisted that his posi-
tion on the amendment did not in-
dicate antifeminist sentiment, but
rather the belief that the fight
for, the amendment wasthe pur-
suit of a mirage rather than bf
a productive reality . . . [with]
possible foolish, unpredictable or
chaotic results, Freund urged

Professor Paul A. Freund:

short of an amendment.

tection clause of the 14th Amend-

Some Students Face Disciplinary Action

Hoarding:of Bluebooks
Fouls up Registration
By Greg Ward
Registration this fall was more
scrambled than usual.
The hoarding of completed
blue-books by   students  who
elected to take their examinations
home over the summer was the
chief cause of the mix-ups; ac-
cording toStephen M. Bernardi,
Secretary of the Law School,
In the week prior to the dead-
line, 1,524 exams swamped the
Registrar's Office,
Registration would have been
tough anyway, said Bernardi,
because we didn't have the pre-
liminary registration in the first
few weeks of May. Preliminary
registration had been deferred
until tile summer to accommodate
those students who left for home
in the wake of the controversy
over U. S. involvement in Cam-
The sudden onslaught of blue-
books during the week prior to
the exam deadline, said Bernardi;
resulted in the overburdening of
the Registrar's Office and the sub-
sequent disorganization of the
registration procedures.
While 30-40 per cent of all ex-
ams on a course-by-course basis
were taken at the regularly sched-
uled time and place, 4,400 exams
were mailed to 947 students in
June. As of June 15, only 70 tLs
and 76 2Ls had completed all
their exams.     •
'The exams Were slow coming
back. There was some inflow in
June,' said. Bernardi,. but 'long
