Benjamin Spock convicted of conspiracy

Famed pediatrician and author Dr. Benjamin Spock and three other activists, including Yale University Chaplain William Sloane Coffin, Jr., are convicted in a federal district court in Boston of conspiring to aid, abet, and counsel draft registrants to "violate the Selective Service Act," that is, to resist conscription into the military.
