One day after the University had 11
protesters arrested for demonstrating
in a laboratory against military resear-
ch, President Harold Shapiro said he is
concerned about attempts to shut down
"It is very dangerous to have a moral
orthodoxy at the University," Shapiro
told 50 students in a question-and-
answer session at Bursley Hall. "Why
not let every faculty member, student,
and administrator have their own
opinions?" he asked.
SHAPIRO SAID THE University's
defense department-sponsored resear-
ch has many applications besides

expressed dissatisfaction with the

One student said he found his lectures
a waste of time, and learned more just
by reading his textbook.
SHAPIRO ACKNOWLEDGED that
there are some problems with the
quality of the University's TAs and said
the administration is trying to ensure
that alVTAs are qualified before they
step in front of a class.
"In my opinion, there is no excuse for
putting an incompetent teacher in a
classroom," he said.
ON A LIGHTER note, Shapiro
pleaded ignorance when a student
complained about bursting heating
pipes in the dormitory. He said the
problems may have stemmed from
only having a "skeleton crew" doing
maintenance over Christmas break
when many residence halls experience
flooding and damage after pipes burst.
Shapiroacknowledged that he is con-
cerned that the University is becoming
increasingly expensive for students,
but he said. "We can't run quality
programs by wishing. We can only run
quality programs with resources.
"We made a choice to defend the
quality of our programs, and that has a
direct affect on tuition," he said.

Police recapture escaped convict
MARION, N.C. - Police yesterday recaptured a "most dangerous"
escaped convict from Tennessee, hours after officers gunned down his par-'
tner, a double murderer who earlier had eluded police in a shootout at a blind'
The fugitive, James Clegg, "is in custody," said North Carolina Highway
Patrol Sgt. Jeter Wilds. Details of the arrest were not immediately released.
A fellow escapee, Ronald Lee Freeman, 41, was killed earlier yesterday in
a gun battle with police in an abandoned house in this western North
Carolina community. Police had trailed him with bloodhounds from the
blind couple's home, where Freeman had broken in early in the morning.
But the woman suffered a heart attack and one of the people who came to,
help her called police.
While Clegg, 30, was still at large, residents of a Marion neighborhood
voluntarily left their homes so police could search every house.
The two men, both "armed and dangerous," escaped from a Tennessee
prison last month and had vowed not to be captured alive.
"We think Clegg is by far the most dangerous of the two men," said Mc-
Dowell County District Attorney Alan Leonard.
Subcommi tte demands details of
U.S. Central American policy
WASHINGTON - A House Appropriations subcommittee yesterday told
Reagan administration officials not to expect "a dime" more for military
construction in Honduras until U.S. plans in that Central American nation
are spelled out.
Democrats and a Republican on the military construction subcommittee
expressed annoyance over the administration's failure to submit a report on
those plans requested by Congress'last fall. The clash was the latest flare-up
of congressional suspicion about U.S. military plans in Honduras.
"We in the Congress and the American people are literally in the dark
about what our government is doing in Central America," said Rep. Bill
Alexander, (D-Ark.). "I'm not willing to give you one dime until you tell this:
committee what you're up to."
Congressional Democrats have accused the administration of building a
network of permanent and semi-permanent military bases in Honduras un-:
der the guise of conducting joint military exercises. The administration,:
however, insists the facilities are only temporary.
Subcommittee members demanded that the administration provide a full:
accounting of its construction plans in Honduras before the panel will act on
an $8.7 million request for Honduran construction next year.
Lawyer admits to helping killer
CLINTON, Tenn. - A female defense lawyer who spent five months on the
run with a prison killer pleaded guilty yesterday to helping him escape, in a
plea bargain that could allow her to be released on probation.
Mary Evans, 27, pleaded guilty to an escape charge in exchange for a
prosecutor's recommendation that she receive a suspended prison sentence
of one to three years and psychiatric care.
Charges of aggravated kidnapping and armed robbery were dropped.
William Kirk, 37, who was brought from the Tennessee State Prison in
Nashville, pleaded guilty to armed robbery and escape. Prosecutors
recommended sentences of 35 and five years and dropped aggravated kid-
A state psychiatrist has said that Evans apparently had fallen in love with
Kirk while preparing to defend him on a murder charge.
Filipinos rally against elections
MANILA, Philippines - Tens of thousands of Filipinos climaxed a seven-
day march from the provinces yesterday with the biggest anti-election rally
yet. They marched to a seaside park as office workers saluted them with.
confetti and students left class to join their ranks.
More than 70,000 protestors seeking a boycott of National Assembly elec-
tions in May rallied for four hours at the Rizal Park as riot police guarded
bridges and streets leading to President Ferdinand Marcos' Malacanang
Diplomats say the elections are vital to Marcos' credibility after the
political and economic instability that has followed the Aug. Z1 assassination
of Benigno Aquino.
Aquino was gunned down as he stopped from a plane in Manila after three
years in the United States, and many Filipinos feel the government is
responsible. Marcos says he was shot by a communist agent. A civilian panel
A boycott movement has split the opposition between those ho believe:

Bartender testifies in rape trial
FALL RIVER, Mass. - Three men returned to a tavern and talked about
their role in a gang rape the day after a woman reported being raped on the
bar's pool table as patrons cheered, a bartender testified yesterday.
Daniel Cunha said he was tending bar at Big Dan's tavern on the morning
after the rape was reported when he overheard a conversation among three
defendents - Daniel Silvia, Virgilio Medeiros and Jose Medeiros, whom he
called "the blond one."
Silvia said the Medeiros men, who are not related, are among six men
charged in the March 6, 1983, rape of a 22-year-old woman at the bar in near-
by New Bedford.
The woman has testified that Silvia and Joseph Vieira took turns raping
her on the pool table. She said one of the two forced her to perform oral sex
and that another man, John Cordeiro, also tried to force her to perform oral
