DA Still Probing 'Poon; Case May Not Come Up in Court

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

The Middlesex County Grand Jury moets Monday, and District Attorney George E. Thompson still doesn't know whether or not the Lampoon case will come up for consideration.

Contacted last night at his home, Thompson said, "We're still waiting for information." He would not specify what information his office was seeking, merely commenting that it was to come from the police department.

There are a variety of charges on which the 'Poon might be prosecuted, but people high in the involved legal channels last night indicated that they foresaw no action.

One official who wished to remain, anonymous said, "The thing started off big, but has sort of fizzled out now. The magazine really isn't so bad as it was originally supposed to be, but once the ball got rolling, it got out of control. I wouldn't be surprised if the whole thing died quietly."

Lawyer is Ready

Joseph A. DeGuglielmo '29, counsel for the Lampoon, said last night that he had heard nothing about Monday proceedings. "No one has contacted me," DeGuglielmo said, "but if action is necessary, I'm prepared to be in court."

Captain Patrick J. McCarthy, acting Chief of the Cambridge Police, issued no official statement on the Pontoon parody case last night.

Up to today, no official action has been taken by the Deans' Office.
