Mondale accuses Hart
From The Associated Press
Walter.F. Mondale, $110,000 richer af-
ter a fund-raising blitz in California,
accused Gary Hart yesterday of a
political flip-flop on Israel as Hart
apologized for a letter that differed
from his statemepts on moving the U.S.
Embassy in Israel to Jerusalem.
The Hart apology came as he and
Mondale traded accusations about each
other's loyalty to Israel in advance of
New York's April 3 primary.
Both candidates are seeking to ad-
vance their position among Jewish
voters, who have accounted for about a
third of the Democratic primary
turnout in New York City in recent
Hart, at a speech in New York City,
charged that Mondale had tried to "in-
timidate and coerce" Israel into taking
unacceptable security risks. Unlike his
rivals for the Democratic presidential
nomination, he said, "I have no
apologies to make and no explanations
to offer" for his stance on Israel.
But minutes later, Hart was asked to
explain a letter sent out by his Senate
office that suggested the U.S. Embassy
in Israel be moved to Jerusalem only as
part of overall effort to negotiate a
Middle East peace treaty.
Hart said that if elected president, he
would move the embassy without
As for the letter, he said, "I apologize'
for that ambiguity. It is unfortunate, I
assume responsibility for it. But the let-
ter does not reflect my position today or
my position a year ago, or for that mat-
ter six weeks ago."
He later said he wasn't "apologizing
for anything," only accepting respon-
sibility for the letter.
Gold, computers stolen
Burglars took about $13,000 in stolen
goods from an office building on 1925
Pauline Street between 5:30 p.m. Mar-
ch 20, and 7:30 a.m. March 21, Ann Ar-
bor police said. Police said the burglars
took a typewriter, a calculator, a
microwave oven, an IBM computer, a
computer printer, and a computer
In another burglary on the street,
thieves took about $1,600 in gold from a
Dental office at 1717 Pauline. Police
said the gold was stolen between March
'17 and March 19. They said they did not
have any evidence to link the two thefts.

Workers, students clash in stie
LIMA Peru - Striking workers and students fought pitched battles
yesterday with police sent into the streets to enforce a national state of
emergency and block a general strike called to protest government
Banks, schools, mines and factories across the country closed their doors
as Peruvian workers joined the strike called by major labor coalitions to
protest inflation and recession they say are caused by the austerity policies:
of President Fernando Belaunde Terry.
The government called the strike a failure because the shutdown was not
Authorities said at least 100 people were arrested nationwide in clashesa

people were arrested in connection with a wave of bombings that injured 12

Jury convicts two more men
in barroom gang rape trial
FALL RIVER, Mass. - A jury urged to uphold "a tradition that says we
don't tolerate bullies" began deliberations yesterday in the trial of four
young immigrants accused of gang raping a woman on a barroom pool table.
Another jury convicted two men of aggravated rape in the same case last
The six men and six women on the second jury began deliberations at 9:10
a.m., leaving their room a few minutes later to ask the judge for a list of
standards that must be met in order to convict.
They came out again three hours later to ask whether they could find some
defendants guilty of lesser charges while convicting others of aggravated
rape. Judge William Young said they could.
All four defendants, Victor Raposo, 23, Jose Medeiros, 23, Virgilio
Medeiros, 24, John Cordeiro, 24, are charged with aggravated rape in the
March 6, 1983, attack of a woman in a New Bedford bar. The Medeiros men
are not related.
The charge of aggravated rape, which carries a maximum life sentence, is
applied in gang rape cases. Young told jurrs they could find the men guilty
of lesser charges of rape or assault with intent to rape if they find the four
did not act together.
Raposo collapsed in tears as he was convicted, and Cordero, also found
guilty, bowed his head and wept.
Virgilio Mediros, who was acquitted, hugged his attorney Frank O'Boy.
U.S. carrier failed to detect sub
HAWK - The skipper of the USS Kitty Hawk said yesterday escort ships
protecting the 800,000-ton aircraft carrier failed to detect a nuclear-powered
Soviet submarine that rammed it in the Sea of Japan because they were too
The Kitty Hawk's skipper, Capt. David Rogers, told reporters yesterday,
"I had no indication on the radar scope and no visual indication" of the sub-
marine just before the collision. "I presume the sub was surfacing and it
did not show up on radar."
Rogers also said the nearest escort ship with sonar capability was 25 miles
from the carrier.
"The point remains that the submarine is the burdened vessel," he said,
adding that the Victor should have shown navigation lights if it was on the
surface of given way to the carrier if submerged.
He said available information made it unclear whether the submarine was
submerged at the time, although he reported that members of the Kitty
Hawk crew was the outline of a submarine conning tower, or sail..
In any event, he said, this "will have no effect on the carrier's operations."
Cancer survival rate increasing
CHICAGO - The survival rate of children with cancer has dramatically
increased in the past 30 years, although new cases are occurring at the same
rate, the National Cancer Institute said yesterday.
Dr. Robert, W. Miller and Frank W. McKay reviewed death certificate
diagnoses of children from 1950 through 1979 provided by the National Center
for Health Statistics.
"The incidence does not decline over this time," Miller said in a telephone
interview. "Cases are occurring at the same rate, but tley're dying less of-
"When you're curing childhood cancer, you're giving a person many more
years of life than if you cured an elderly person. The gains are much greater
The researchers attributed the mortality decline to improved therapy.
