He was sedated and placed under
augmented guard.
Berkowitz was to have been senten
ced first for the July 31, 1977, murder of
Stacy Moskowitz, 20. She was the fina
victim in Berkowitz' year-long series of
random attacks with a .44-caliber
revolver on young women and on
couples that spread terror through the
city.
"STACY WAS a whore. Stacy was
a whore!" Berkowitz began to chant in
a loud-sing-song voice. "You animal!
You animal!" gasped the victim's
mother, Neysa Moskowitz, from a fifth-
row seat.
"That's right! That's right! I'd kill
her again," shouted Berkowitz as his
guards reversed direction and dragged
him out.
"You should get killed, you creep!"
Robert Violante, 21, shouted after him.
Violante was with Moskowitz when she
was fatally shot in Brooklyn.

ing re-set Egyptians back Sadat's
efforts to bar opponents

Berkowitz's bullets cost him one eye
and most of the sight in the other.
It was in the office of Chief Court Of-
f ficer D.F. Ruocco down the hall from
I the courtroom that Berkowitz launched
f his initial outburst.
Brought there in handcuffs from a
holding pen, Berkowitz began ranting
and wildly kicking. Three guards were
taken to a hospital.
AFTER HE LUNGED toward a win-
dow, Berkowitz was overpowered and
his arms shackled to his waist with the
wrists handcuffed separately.
The courtroom scene followed.
After Berkowitz was removed from
court and order restored, Judge Corso
took the bench. The defense moved for
I deferral of sentence and a further
examination as to Berkowitz's mental
condition.
Berkowitz twice has been adjudged
mentally capable of standing trial, but
there has been no ruling on his sanity.

CAIRO, Egypt (AP) - President
Anwar Sadat, trying to silence a "cam-
paign of doubt" about his leadership,
won almost unanimous populrr backing
in a referendum to bar his opponents of
the left' and right from politics, the
government announced yesterday.
The Interior Ministry said the tough
measures proposed by Sadat were ap-
proved by 98.29 per cent of the voters in
the Sunday balloting. It said 9,202,553
voted in favor and 159,578 people voted
"no," and the turnout was 85.4 per cent.
THE GOVERNMENT-controlled
media had campaigned hard for a
"yes" vote. An issue of a leftist
newspaper urging a negative vote was
confiscated.
Cairo newspapers reported, mean-

while, that eight leftists were arrested
in the Nile Delta province of Gharbeya
on Sunday for distributing pamphlets
urging a negative vote and "inciting
voters against the regime."
The leftist party, the National
Progressive Union, said one of its
members in the Egyptian parliament,
Abul Ezz el Hariri, also was arrested
Sunday, his second arrest since leading
a demonstration last week that
authorities denounced as "endangering
social peace."
The left and right had opposed the
referendum as a "repression of
political liberalism" fostered by Sadat
in 1976 when he legalized opposition
groups for the first time in two decades
of one-party rule.

Judge agrees thear
'black English' case

Mosely said students with learning
disabilities are provided with special
education classes but that "if you are in
the service or if you're a jock you speak
non-standard English. We don't do
anything differently in those cases," he
said.
ATTORNEY John Weaver, who
represents the school district, called
Joiner's decision "quite a victory."
"It's clear the statute doesn't apply to
Ann Arbor," Weaver said. "In the
Minimum Achievement tests we are the
number one school district in the state.
... I don't forsee any difficulties win-
ning the case," he added.
Weaver said he believes the school
district is not at fault if some students

do not have an adequate grasp of
English.
"In Michigan, English is the
language used and taught in the
schools. From day one, they are ex-
posed to the correct version of English.
If they don't master it, then it's because
not every kid is going to learn as fast as
the next one," Weaver said.
In order to win the case, the plaintiffs
must prove four things, said Lewis.
They must prove "black English"
really does exist, that the children in
question speak it, and that it impedes
their education. They must also show
that the school district has not taken
adequate steps to alleviate the
problem.
