Williams' parents
cited for contempt

From AP and UPI
ATLANTA - Wayne Williams' parents
were cited for contempt of court.

had violated a gag order by discussing
the murder trial on a radio talk show.
Judge Clarence Cooper said defense
attorneys had told him that Homer and
Faye Williams disobeyed his order

hearing following the trail to answr
the charges.
The Williamses were not in court
yesterday and could not immediately
be reached for comment.
Meanwhile, in the second day of
defense testimony, a pathologist told
the jury the charges against Williams
"just don't make any sense."
DR. DAN STOWENS, a pediatric
pathologist from Utica, N.Y., made the
statement ° uinder a grueling cross
examination by prosecutor Jack
Sto'wens testified that Dr. Robert
Stivers, the Fulton County medical

examiner who performed the autopsy
on Cater, had indicated he too was sur-
prised that an indictment had been
issued. Stowens said he had the con-
versation with Stiyers in December,
five months after Williams was indic-
During cross-examination,
prosecutors attempted to portray
Stowen as a publicity seeker who had
little experience in criminal cases.
STOWENS conceded he had perfor-
med only one homocide autopsy in 1981
and none in 1979 and 1980. But he ad-
ded, "It's not how many Ive done.
There is a standard body of work
available in medical literature, and I
read it and I stay with it."
He also admitted giving several in-
terviews to reporters since becoming
involved in the case, but he said the
publicity was not important to him.
Stowens opened the seventh week of
Williams' trial by repeating that from
his study of the photographs and autop-
sy reports of the bodies of Cater and

"Reagan s new budget
pooks Wall Street

NEW YORK (UPI) - President
Reagan's proposed $91.5 billion budget
deficit spooked Wall Street investors
yesterday as stock and bond prices
On the New York Stock Exchange,
the widely followed Dow Jones in-
dustrial average plummeted 17.6 points
to close at 833.43, its lowest level in
nearly four months.
WALL STREET analysts said in-
vestor worries over higher interest
grates were intensified by the; size of
LReagan's anticipated deficit and could
'abort any significant economic
"The budget deficit is spooking both

the bond and stock markets," said
Newton Zinder, senioi vice president at
E. F. Hutton & Co.
Two more major banks boosted their
prime rate to 16 percent. Chase
Manhattan Bank, the nation's third
largest commercial bank, and 13th
ranked Marine Midland joined the
move last week by most major banks.
Reagan administration officials have
contended the rise in interest rates is
only a "temporary phenomenon."
But many economists fear .mounting
budget deficits accompanied by the
tight. credit policy, of the Federal
Reserve will drive interest rates up and
choke off any significant economic
recovery expected later this year.

students as he does faculty members."
Feiger said he feared "arbitrary"
elimination of students from the pool
*because of their activity in other,
runrelated University issues.
Frye emphasized that, in principle,
the would welcome student participation
,in implementation of the plan.
S"OUR OBJECTIVE" is to obtaitt
*substantive student participation.
SWe're not talking about student power,
rwe're talking about input," he said.
Under the present draft, a student
member of the Budget Priorities Com-
mittee, Jamie Moeller, is to participate
min "brainstorming" sessions with Frye,
;other members of the BPC, and Morton
Brown, the chairman of SACUA, in
eformulating preliminary lists of units
targeted for reviews.
Earlier, Frye had specified
W."priorities" of the reallocation plan as
-being faculty salaries, aid to graduate
tudents, research, equipment, and
"new intellectual thrusts"-creation of
-new academic programs, for example
in technology and science.
BUT HE yesterday modified that list
-to include as a priority "improvement
-of the teaching environment, methods,
=and incentives," and to emphasize the
;need for aid to married graduate
Frye said the interest in teaching
-comes partly as a result of concerns
about the present overcrowding in
many classrooms.
"There is no question that further
reductions in -faculty and staff without
commensurate reductions in
enrollment will aggravate it (the'over-
crowding problem)." Frye said. But, he
said, the simple fact of program reduc-
-tions and eliminations would probably
*contribute to a decline in enrollment,

despite the fact the University presen-
tly plans no cutbacks.
Frye said he wants to see. plans from
a number of units outlining how they in-
tend to improve the quality of instruc-
tion in their area in light of the over-
crowded situation. Among the
possibilities, he said, are redistribution
of work loads within units and use of
computer systems and other "modern
teaching methods."
IN ADDITION, Frye is proposing a
"bridging fund" of several million
dollars to allow selected units to post-
pone their cuts to allow more financial
leeway for planning.
With the bridging fund, the Univer-
sity would essentially grant the unit a
loan to delay cutting until ad-
ministrators had a chance to incor-
porate the cut into their financial
"Essentially what you're buying is an,
improvement in the quality of plan-

ning," Frye said. He said units that op-
ted to use the bridging fund would be
expected to pay interest at least equal
to the inflation rate on the funding they
"borrow" from the University.
"IN INFLATIONARY dollars, there
would be some penalty for delay," he
Brown, chairman of SACUA, said his
group's reception of the proposed plan
was "basically supportive.
"We'd been looking forward to and
asking for this kind of plan ever since
we passed the 'smaller but better'
resolution last spring," he said.
