Suit hinges on proving

ruling that stunned the plaintiff's at-
torney and elated the defense, a
judge said yesterday that the $11
million "Born Innocent" suit against
NBC depends on proving that the
network was trying to incite rape
when it showed the TV film.
Attorney Marvin Lewis said the
decision by Judge Robert Dossee in
San Francisco Superior Court places
"an impossible burden of proof" on
his attempts to prove that NBC was
negligent in showing the film.
"IT'S RIDICULOUS to argue that
NBC advocated the rape," said
Lewis. "I would have to be idiotic to

Manager explained the Community
Health Center reduction by pointing to
the recent adjustment and success of
the program after a larger allocation in
its first year (last year). She said the
reduction was requested by the Cen-

acquired a new director and board so
she will recheck the request.

Roberta Perry protested the $2,000
proposed cut about which she claimed
to be uninformed.
"There would be a drastic effect"
which she said "will cut programs and

programs for lunches, karate, arts and
crafts, sports and special activities.

amounts to $10,000, because they

said, "If we lose money, we lose
people." He said he was unable to
determine the actual effects of the fun-
ding reduction.
In its evaluation, the Community
Development staff justified the cut:
"Octagon has succeeded in getting Yp-

DETROIT (UPI) - Police released
the head of a religious cult Sunday
without filing charges in the discovery
of the remains of two small children in
the yard of his commune.
Raymond Archer, 29, had been held
Friday and Saturday for questioning in
the deaths of a year-old boy and a three-
year-old girl. Autopsies showed the boy
died of natural causes and the girl died
from effects of a fall downstairs. She
never received medical treatment,
children, investigators said, and added,
that the birth of all four of his children
were natural and the births and deaths
were never registered. A further
analysis of the remains was ordered
even though Archer was released.
A tip from a relative, described as a
member of Archer's Theocratic Com-
mune Natural Health Service, led of-
ficers to the gruesome discovery
Friday. Both children died about a year
ago, the relative said.

Officers were attempting to learn
how many children had been born at the
commune and if any others had died.
But no further excavations at the east-
side house were planned.
AUTHORITIES said Archer could
face charges of child abuse of improper
burial even if the children's deaths
were natural.
Archer said Sunday he believe; his
children died because they were unable
to adjust to the §trict diet to which his
group adheres.
"They were just too pure for this

polluted world," Archer told reporters
shortly after he was released Sunday.
"IT WAS a matter of them being
young and tender and not being able to
adjust to the diet," he said.
Archer said his year-old son,
Resharocah Benjudha, died shortly af-
ter he was placed on the diet of un-
cooked nuts, raw fruits and vegetables,
supplemented by coconut and soy milk.
Within a month of his son's death, Ar-
cher said his daughter, Dawistah Ben-
judha, fell down a flight of stairs and
became ill.
