The case of Arthur Ogle, the editor of the Illini who is charged with contempt of court for having published an editorial condemning the methods of the grand jury charged with investigating the student riot, has been continued one week. Judge Harker, dean of the College of Law, asked for leniency because of Ogle’s youth. “If that article had been written by a mature man, I can see that he would be deserving of punishment but here we have a boy, not yet twenty years of age, who hasn’t the discretion he will have a few years later.”
