Autry execution to be off4he-air
HUNTSVILLE, Texas-The Texas Board of Corrections voted yesterday
not to permit television cameras to record tomorrows execution by injection
of convicted killer James David Autry, who escaped death by a mere half-
hour last fall.
The board voted 8-0 against changing the state guidelines that forbid
cameras in the death chamber during an execution.
Also yesterday, the Texas Board of Pardons and Paroles voted against
recommending that the governor commute the sentence or grant Autry a 45-
day reprieve.
Autry's last hope lies in a petition for a stay of execution that was referred
to the full U.S. Supreme Court by Justice Byron White.
If Autry receives no stay, he will be taken from a holding cell shortly after
midnight tomorrow and escorted to the death chamber, a room where he
waited on a gurney, with needles in his arms, to be killed last Oct. 5. He
spent about an hour on the rolling table at that time before White granted a
stay just 30 minutes before midnight.

FULMER SAID that Asam, who
worked on the farm from November 22,
1981, to June 3, 1983, "kind of likes to
blame things on me.
"We've never gotten along together
too good," he said.
Under questioning by defense attor-
ney Thomas Ellis, Asam said he threw
Molitoris against the wall because he
was "sexually molesting cows." Asam
described Molitoris as a "a very
aggressive man . . . whether (he was)
pulling a knife out, or walking around
pulling his clothes down."
ASAM WHO blinked nervously
throughout his testimony, told gover-
nment prosecutors he had hit Molitoris
on occasion, but not to force him to
"I never hit Louis to make him
work," Asam said. "I threw cake-dried
manure at him (to make him work)."
Defense attorneys tried to prove that
Asam had not used any undue force on
the farmhands.

3 men arrested
in Markley
Police arrested three Ann Arbor men
Friday, after they allegedly entered
unlocked dorm rooms in Markley Hall
and attempted to steal property. The
men, aged 18, 19, and 20, were charged
with causing a disturbance. The
suspects said they were in the dorm
looking for a party, according to police.
None of the three were University
students, but one of the suspects had an
ID that he allegedly stole from the In-
tramural Building on January 10, police
said. - Rachel Gottlieb

Businesses spend record billions
WASHINGTON-American businesses plan to spend a record $343.6 billion
on modernization and expansion in 1984, an inflation-adjusted increase of 12
percent that is the best gain in nearly two decades, the government said
The Reagan administration hailed the Commerce Department business
survey as further proof of a "thriving economy" while one private analyst
said the nation appeared headed for a "full-scale capital spending boom."
The increase in capital spending, which amounts to a 12 percent rise after
adjusting for inflation, would follow three straight years of declines in
capital spending, including a 3.8 percent fall-of in 1983. It would be the best
increase since a 13.4 percent rise in 1966.
The new estimate was based on a government survey of business
investment plans in late January and February and presents an even more
optimistic view than a year-end survey which projected a 9.4 percent
"These are super numbers that begin to show signs of a full-scale capital
spending boom," said Jerry Jasinowski, chief economist of the National
Association of Manufacturers. "This is a particularly healthy response with
interest rates as high as they are."
JuRENspctv to stand trial for bribes
RENO,ev.-Prospective jurors filed into a courtroom yesterday for the
trial of U.S. District Judge Harry Claiborne on charges that include taking
bribes from a brothel owner, after the U.S. Supreme Court rejected his last-
ditch bid for a delay.
He became only the second federal judge every to go on trial for crimes
allegedly committed while on the bench.
Judge Walter Hoffman of Roanoke, Va., who was appointed to hear the
case, also refused yesterday to postpone the trial and ordered the first of 225
prospective jurors to begin filing in for a selection process that is expected to
continue through tomorrow.
The trial is scheduled for five weeks.
A federal indictment returned against Claiborne last December charges
him with soliciting and receiving $30,000 from Joe Conforte, the owner of a
brothel near Reno, in connection with a vote-fraud case in which Conforte
was involved.
Claiborne also is charged in the indictment with trying to defraud Conforte
by promising, in return for a $45,000 payment, to get Conforte's tax evasion
conviction overturned by bribing 9th Circuit court judges.
Detectives testify in rape trial
FALL RIVER, Mass.-The prosecution rested its case yesterday against
two men charged in a barroom gang rape after a policewoman testified she'
interviewed a hysterical rape victim who "couldn't believe what had
happened to her."
Detective Sandra Grace was among 20 witnesses called by prosecutors
before they rested their case against Daniel Silvia, 27, and Joseph Vieira, 28,
who are being tried separately from four other defendants.
Ms. Grace said she interviewed the 22-year-old woman hours after the
woman reported being raped on a pool table at Big Dan's tavern in nearby
New Bedford on March 6, 1983.
"She was hysterical and in a state of shock," said Ms. Grace. "I got the
impression that she couldn't believe what had happened to her."
Earlier, in the separate morning session for the four others, another police
officer testified that two of the men admitted they held a screaming woman
on a pool table while she was raped.
Detective Kenneth Gormley said the admission came from defendants
John Cordeiro and Victor Raposo on March 7, 1983.
Alleged rape victim testifies
MASON, Mich.-Defense lawyers in the Michigan State University gang
rape case sought yesterday to undermine the testimony of the alleged
victim, suggesting she had opportunities to escape and did not take them.
In response to persistent defense questions, the young woman said she was;
scared and not thinking straight at the time of the alleged assaults.
The woman's failure to escape or in other ways resist her alleged
assailants has been a key issue in the controversial case since the beginning.
Seven young men face charges of third-degree criminal sexual conduct in
connection with the incident which occured at an MSU dormitory in:
November, 1982.
Six of the seven were MSU students at the time. The alleged victim was a
17-year-old MSU freshman from Detroit.
The woman and four of the defendants currently are enrolled at MSU.
