U.S. to ask High
Court to block
IRS file release

WASHINGTON (AP) - Government
lawyers, beaten at every turn, agreed
yesterday to again ask the Supreme
Court to block release of miles of com-
puter tapes that the Internal Revenue
Service says could be turned into a road
map for tax cheaters.
Meanwhile, a federal judge in Seattle
directed U.S. marshals in the nation's
capital to assist in carrying out his
earlier order for the government to turn
over the tapes to a Bellevue, Wash.,
couple.
THE TAPES, containing millions of
statistics from individual tax returns
filed from 1972 through 1976, are being
sought for research purposes by Susan
and Philip Long, who once challenged
an IRS audit and won.
After a two-hour meeting, lawyers for
the Justice Department, Internal
Revenue Service, and the Bureau of
Economic Analysis agreed to pursue
the case.

Supreme Court Justice William
Rehnquist had refused Tuesday to con-
tinue delaying implementation of an
order from federal court in Seattle to
give the tapes to the Longs. After Susan
Long was refused the tapes by the
bureau yesterday, government lawyers
met to map their own strategy.
CARRYING A COPY of Rehnquist's
order, Susan Long marched up to the
bureau's offices yesterday and, smiling
at the television cameras, demanded
the tapes.
Robert Parker, a division chief at the
bureau, grinned and told Susan Long he
would not comply until his lawyers
decided on another appeal.
"I'm sorry you won't follow the law,"
Susan Long said.
"I BELIEVE THE appeals process is
part of the law," Parker replied.
Mark Sheehan, a spokesman for the
Justice Department, said the depar-
tment will ask the Supreme Court clerk
today to hand the case to a second
justice or to the full court.
While that decision was being made,
U.S. District Judge Walter McGovern
issued "a writ of assistance" in Seattle,
directing marshals to help enforcement
of his original order for release of the
material.

WUOM: A history of
commmunity service

(Continued from Page 1)
hit by a double dose of budget cuts.
Radio station officials say operations
will have to be shrunk because of the
cuts. WUOM has already reduced its
hours of operation.
In December, the University announ-
ced that WUOM would be included in its
budget cut plans. The station's
allowance from the University could be
cut by as much as 40 percent.
WUOM/WVGR also gets federal
money from the Corporation for Public
Broadcasting. President Reagan hopes
to cut that agency's budget by 25 per-
cent.
When WUOM began broadcasting, its
programming emphasized concerts,
and music. But when other fine arts
stations started broadcasting, WUOM
began to feature more news and public
affairs shows.
"We realize that people who are in-
terested in classical music are in-
terested in certain other things, too,
said Program Director Stephen
Skelley. "Our programs are selected to
appeal to these people."
INCLUDED IN these programs is
"Masterpiece Theatre," a one hour
radio drama show, and "Ar-
ticulations," a five-minute weekly
reading of contemporary poetry.
One of the most popular programs is
"All Things Considered," a one-and-a-
half hour show featuring news,
features, and interviews broadcast
from Washington.
In addition to regular programs,
WUOM features a number of specials
each month. The station broadcasts live
concerts performed in the station's
studio every other Monday night and
transmits several live concerts from
Hill Auditorium.

A BIG CHANGE occured in the
station's programming in the mid-60s
when two major jazz record collections
were donated to the station. At that
time Burrows and Schumacher started
"Jazz Revisited," a weekly jazz show
which is used by public radio stations
all over the country.
"Our listenership still has a primary
interest in concert music," said
Burrows. "The audience likes jazz but
would be horrified if we played rock."
Shows produced by WUOM/WVGR,
including recordings of lectures and
live music concerts, are sent to NPR in
Washington to be used at other stations
around the country or on "All Things
Considered."-
Virtually -all WUOM's 30 employees
can handle almost every job it takes to
run the station, according to News
Director Fred Hindley. Engineering
and sports staffs can operate news or
classicial music programs, he said.
ALL THE station's employees are
required to have a strong background
in classical music. That means, accor-
ding to Hindley, that anyone who wants
a job there has to have grown up with
the music. The station doesn't hire 95
percent of the people who apply, he
said, because those people don't know
enough about classical music to suit
WUOM.
Two to six student interns also work
at WUOM each year. These students
volunteer for credit. Other students are
hired as professional broadcasters and
perform the same duties as other em-
ployees.
Listener donations have partially
made up for pending budget cuts. Ten
years ago, 95 percent of the station's
money came from the University. And
today, that amount has been cut to 58
percent. Twenty percent of WUOM's
funding comes from listeners, and
another 20 percent of WUOM's budget
is from the federal government.
Each November WUOM/WVGR
holds a 29-hour marathon fundraiser.
According to Schumacher, donations
picked up in December after the budget
cuts were announced.
"Things will have to be shrunk," said
Hindley. "But they'll be shrunk in a
professional way. We'll still sound
professional, but maybe not quite as
good."
The station hopes listeners will
donate a total of $155,000 this year.

IN BRIEF
Compiled from Associated Press and
United Press International reports
Shots fired at American
Embassy in El Salvador
SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador-Gunmen fired six shots at the U.S. Em-
bassy from a speeding car yesterday, but no one was injured and Marine
guards did not return fire, an embassy spokesman reported. There was no
immediate claim of responsibility.
It was the first reported attack on the embassy since the Reagan ad-
ministration announced a tripling of military aid to the military-civilian jun-
ta and the provision of 20 advisers to train Salvadoran security forces to deal:
with the guerrilla insurgency.
Junta leader Jose Napoleon Duarte, in an interview with the Associated
Press, also renewed his plea for up to $300 million in economic aid, vowed he-
would not tolerate foreign military intervention in his nation's civil crisis
and said he has no immediate plans to meet with intermediaries offering to
bring an end to the fighting.
Another black youth missing
ATLANTA-Another black youth was listed as missing yesterday, but
police were checking to determine whether he was a runaway before turning
his name over to the task force investigating the slayings or disapperances
of 21 other children.
Authorities said Joseph Bell, 15, who was last seen on Monday at the high
school he attended, was reported missing late Tuesday, a little less than two
weeks since 13-year-old Curtis Walker became the 21st name on the task for-
ce list that dates back to July, 1979.
Nineteen of those on the list, including three who have disappeared since
Jan. 1, have been found dead.
Hijackers free 27 hostages
ISLAMABAD, Pakistan-Hijackers threatening to blow up a Pakistani
jetliner in Afghanistan released 27 women and children and a sick man
yesterday, but held more than 100 male passengers and crew hostage for a
third day at Kabul airport.
A Pakistani plane that flew to Afghanistan to pick up the nine children and
18 women, including several Americans, was refused landing permission
and forced to return, officials said.
They also said Afghan officials refused to allow a Pakistani negotiating
team to speak to the passengers who were released.
Mass murderer's execution
expected despite petition
INDIANAPOLIS-Gov. Robert Orr said yesterday he expects mass mur-
derer Steven Judy to be executed on schedule Monday-as Judy
wishes-despite a petition for clemency from ten Indiana religious leaders
and the American Civil Liberties Union.
"It is not a legal petition. You must have the consent of Judy," Orr's legal
counsel, John Ryan, told a news conference.
Judy, 24, sent a note to the warden of the Indiana State Prison in Michigan
City after the petition for a clemency hearing wasfiled, saying he wanted
nothing to do with it.
Mark Chasteen, whose wife and children Judy killed in 1979, also fought
against efforts to commute the death sentence.
Avowed racist found guilty
of violating civil rights
SALT LAKE CITY-Avowed racist Joseph Franklin was convicted
yesterday on federal charges that he violated the civil rights of two black
men by shooting them to death.
Franklin, 30, of Mobile, Ala., was charged with violating the civil rights of
David Martin, 20, and Ted Fields, 18, by shooting them to death August 20 as
they left a city park where they had been jogging with two white girls.
Franklin denied killing the two blacks but said they deserved to die for
"race-mixing."
The civil rights charges carry a maximum penalty of life imprisonment.
He also faces charges of first-degree murder.
AT&T antitrust case opened
WASHINGTON-The government opened its antitrust case against the
American Telephone & Telegraph Co. yesterday, finally beginning to
present evidence in its six-year effort to break up the Bell system.
The Justice Department contends the vast Bell network should be disman-
tled because it engaged in "a classic case of monopolization" and has con-
spired to eliminate competition in violation of the Sherman Act. Observers
say the trial may last two years.

AT&T argues court-ordered divestiture would cause hardship for its
shareholders and 1 million employees, and adversely affect telephone rates
and service, the nation's economy and even national defense.
