Judge to release rape case transcript

MADISON, Wis. U/P)-A judge
who suggested that women in
revealing clothing are more re-
sponsible for rape than men who
attack them will release the
transcript of a closed hearing in
which he sentenced a teen-ager
to a year's probation for a sex-
ual assault.
tane CountyJudge Archie
Smosn, 52, told a news con-
ference in his courtroom yester-
day that he would release the
transcript but would. make no
further comment in response to
criticism of the remarks he
made from the bench last week.
SIMONSON sentenced a 15-
year-old boy who pleaded no
contest to a charge of second-
degree sexual assault to one

year's probation to be served at
home with his parents. The boy
was originally accused of raling
a 16-year-old girl at a Madison
high school last fall.
In passing sentence, Simonson
was quoted as saying that Mad-
ison is a sexually permissive
communfty and that in view of
the fact that many women wear
provocative clothing, "should
we punish severely a 15- or 16-
year-old who reacts normally to
it?"
Feminists reacted strongly to
the comments, and a petition to
recall Simonson began circulat-
ing. Simonson has been a county
judge for five years.
YESTERDAY, Simonson said
his remarks were published out

of context and that he was not
convinced the boy had raped the
girl.
But D i s t r i c t Atty. James
Doyle Jr. and Assistant Prose-
cutor Meryl Manhardt referred
reporters to police reports indi-
cating there was evidence that
a rape had taken place.
Simonson accused Doyle and
Ms. Manhardt of unethical con-
duct, but Doyle said Simonson
badbrought up the issue of evi-
dence and that the jstdge was
trying to justify his comments
by making it appear that the
girl was at fault for the attack.
The first shoe factory in the
United States was opened by
John Adams Dagyr in 1760 in
Lynn, Mass.

The more frugal pick from
such delicacies as Souvlakia
(Greek style shisk-kabob), bar-
becued chicken, green beans,
bttered corn - on - the - cob,
rice pilaf and spinach pie.
The iron-willed who withstand
the tempting restaurant food
tiust contend with tables laden
with Greek pastries. Over 40,000
were made up to wreak havoc
on the most stringent diet.
NO GREEK festival would
be complete without a Tabepna
(bar). The festival offers beer,
wine, hard drinks and the Greek
liquer ouzo - a pleasantly de-
ceptive drink guaranteed to
make the world a little bright-
er.
Four women laughing and
passing around a bottle of ouzo

were approached by a young
man draped in traditional Greek
garb. He sat at their table and
one of the ladies poured the
clear liquid into the man's glass
by mistake. "I really know how
to pick my place don't I," he
slurred. The women gave him a
cold stare and then smiled.
Funny how a little ouzo makes
everyone friendlier.
As the evening progressed,
several rosy cheeked girls do-
ing ample justice to their color-
ful dancing costumes went on
stage to demonstrate the art of
Greek dance.
THE GIRLS whirled through
four Greek dances in an at-
tempt to teach the nimble foot-
ed and stumble-bum alike. They
put us fumble - stumpers to
shame as they -whirled to the

theme song from Zorba The
Greek. The audience clapped
in rhythm and one kid even
blew bubble-gum bubbles in
time to the music.
The YA'SSO festival will con-
tinue today and tomorrow with
food, drink and dancing - in-
cluding professional dancers.
Rumor has it the weather will
be warmer, thus making the
festival more enjoyable. Every-
one concerned with the festival
seemed happy with the first
day and Helen Garris said,
"things seem to be going
smoothly, a lot better than I
had hoped."
The funds raised from the
admission charge - in effect
after 6:30 p.m. - will go to-
wards paying off the St. Nicho-
las Church mortgage debts.

HI MOM!
This is an early-film by the director of Carrie and stars the then
unknown Robert DeNiro. Hi Mom! stands out for its wit, its ironic
good humor, its multilevel sophistications, its technical ingenu-
ity, its nervousness and its very special ability to bring the "sen-
sibility" of the suburbs to the "sins" of the inner city.
