Two convicted in barroom rape
FALL RIVER, Mass. - Two men were convicted yesterday of gang-
raping a young woman on a barroom pool table while onlookers joked and
cheered, a verdict that sparked cries of outrage from courtroom spectators
and angry charges of racism from crowds outside.
Cries and screams from the defendants' relatives echoed through the cen-
tury-old courtroom after the verdict, and one man was dragged away by
Outside the courthouse, an angry crowd jeered jurors as "racists," while
the victim, through her attorney, said, "Justice has been done."
Daniel Silva, 27, and Joseph Vieira, 28, were convicted of aggravated rape,
which could bring a life sentence and possible deportation for the Portuguese
The eight-man, four-woman jury reached the verdict after 5% hours of
deliberation following a 16-day trial in a case that became afocal point for
women's rights advocates.
The two are among six men charged in the March 6, 1983, gang rape of a 22-
year-old woman in a New Bedford bar. Four other men are defendants in a
separate trial that is expected to go to the jury this week.
Shot kills accused La. kidnapper
BATON ROUGE, La. - A karate instructor accused of kidnapping one of
his students died yesterday after the student's father shot him in the head
and then told deputies, "If it were your son, you would have done the same
thing," officials and witnesses said.
Gary Plauche stepped from a telephone booth at Ryan Airport on Friday
night and fired one shot point-blank into the head of Jeffery Paul Doucet ac-
cording to deputies and witnesses. Doucet had just arrived on a flight from
Los Angeles to face trial on charges of abducting 12-year-old Jodie Plauche,
who was freed unharmed.
Doucet died at noon yesterday from a single-gunshot wound to the head,"
said Joy Phillipps, a spokeswoman at New Orleans' Charity Hospital.
Plauche, who had been held on a charge of attempted second degree mur-
der, now faces a charge of second degree murder, said Sgt. Roy Forbes of the
East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff's Department.'
Plauche had been held on $100,000 bond on the attempted murder charge,
but Forbes said a judge would decide now whether to release Plauche on
bond in view of Doucet's death.
Calif. drivers face smog checks
SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Millions of California motorists - from the
Mexican border to the Golden Gate - face inspections, mechanics and nosy
computers as a mammoth smog check program begins tomorrow.
More than 12 million cars in California's smoggiest urgan areas - Los
Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Fresno Bakersfield, Sacramento and
Ventura - must be checked for pollution once every two years in order to be
registered in the state.
That's about 500,000 inspected each month.
"We expect a lot of people are not going to quite comprehend what it's all
about," said Irwin Cooper, a spokesman for the state Department of Motor
Vehicles. "We expect to receive thousands of registration payments in the
mail without the smog certificates, at least in the first few days."
The new inspection law, which the Legislature approved and former Gov.
Edmund Brown signed in 1982, was adopted after years of haggling amid
pressure from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which threatened
to cut off nearly $1 billion in federal sewage and highway construction funds
unless the state cleaned up its air.
State lawmakers had resisted ordering the inspections, fearful of angering

in escalating pre-election violence that killed four civilians, wounded eight
soldiers and left a city block in flames.
In Nicaragua, the chief of state security said U.S.-backed rebels have
launched their biggest offensive yet to overthrow the leftist government in
Leftist guerrillas in El Salvador assaulted the nation's third largest city of
San Miguel at midnight, firing a barrage of mortars that struck within a
block of the city's center.
Military officials said rebels attacked the city from three sides. Jour-
nalists at the scene said the guerrillas penetrated to withinaone block of the
army garrison in the city, which is 69 miles east of the capital.
Justice dept. official defends
Reagan s civil rights record
NEW YORK - the Reagan administration's chief civil rights enforcer
went to a church in Harlem yesterday to defend his record, saying civil
rights enforcement has been moving forward not backward as so many have
Assistant Attorney General William Bradford Reynolds said the ad-
minisration has been pursuing a "colorblind policy that keeps its eye riveted
on equal justice for every American.
"That, my fellow Americans, is the true mark of effective civil rights en-
forcement," Reynolds said in remarks prepared for delivery at the Church of
the Master in New York City's Harlem. A text was released by the Justice
Department in Washington.
Reynolds said the Reagan Justice Department has taken many "ground-
breaking initiatves" in the civil rights arena, spearheading major suits un-
der the Fair Housing Act and bringing the first civil rights case every again-
st a municipality for the combined charges of housing and employment

In South Carolina, with 78 percent of

good day today," Mondale said in
"About 10 days ago they were writing
me off," he said. "The campaign was
over. Mondale is down the tube."
He noted that he had changed bis,.
campaign tactics and started a
"debate" in ,which he has -been
questioning .Hart's record ands
positions. "Now we've really bad the;
debate joined here," he said. "The
debate will go forward further. I feel
very good about it."

campaign appearance in Michigan, and
we made no concerted effort at the
national level or expenditure, the 40
percent showing in Michigan is a very,
good showing for us," he said.
The senator, said his showing sin
Arkansas also was good, "given one
political swing throughout the state."
He added, "I tend to agree with Vice
President Mondale that this campaign
will go on quite a ways and I think that
as time goes on we'll continue to do bet-

Mary Rielly, the caucus manager at

problem because many of them had

Cumberworth said the challenged
ballots will now be sent to the
Democratic party headquarters in
Lansing where a committee will
evaluate them and decide whether to
count them. She said party officials
will probably reject most of the
challenges because they stem from
"campaigns getting nervous" at the ed
of the caucus.
Despite the confusion over polling
places and caucus rules, more than
9,000 county residents voted yesterday.
Cumberworth said the turnout was
especially high in the campus area,
where student campaigners worked
hard to draw students to the polls.
"I voted for Hart," said LSA fresh-
man Mike Nachman. "He's the best
man and can beat Reagan."
"He's got guts," said another
student, who asked to remain
anonymous. "He stood up in Detroit
and said he didn't vote for the Chrysler
bill - that's guts."
While most students voted for one of
the three candidates still in the race,
several votes were cast at campus-area
sites for former 'candidates George
McGovern and John Glenn. And one

Summer Institute" for five weeks from May 29 to June 28 for

duce the student to the law library and legal writing tech-

mance in law school. The Institute will be conducted in the
same manner as regular law school courses and will include
case and statutory analyses and research techniques.
