HAR T CALLS MONDALE UNFAIR
Sen. Gary Hart said yesterday Walter Mondale is
making unfair attacks on his campaign but Mondale
unleashed more harsh criticism, hammering away at
his rival's, "confusion" over the Middle East, Central
America and arms control.
In Hartford, Conn., Hart said Mondale should stop
criticizing and say what he would do as president.
"I CHALLENGE my principal opponent, Vice
President Mondale, to rise above attacks on my cam-
paign, my candidacy or my background and put for-
ward his own ideas," Hartsaid.
"I think it's time for him to put in place his own
policies and programs. We still await those," said
Hart, who is considered the favorite over Mondale in
next Tuesday's Connecticut primary.
"Unlike others in this race, I am not afraid to put
forth specific policies," he said.
REFERRING TO Mondale's often repeated line
borrowed from a fast food television commercial, he
added: "There's the beef."
But even as Hart was appealing for a toned down
campaign. Mondale made a speech in New York City
ridiculing the foreign policy of both President
Reagan and Hart.
'Reagan's is a policy of
illusion. Senator Hart's is a
policy of confusion. I offer
reality and steadiness of
former vice president
"Reagan's is a policy of illusion. Senator Hart's is a
policy of confusion. I offer reality and steadiness of
purpose," the former vice president said.
THE TWO Democratic frontrunners will spend
most of the next three weeks in the northeast
preparing for primaries in Connecticut, New York
Hart, Mondale and civil rights activist Jesse
Jackson interrupted their campaign schedule long
enough yesterday to attend a memorial service in
Baltimore for Clarence Mitchell, known in
Washington as the 101st senator for his long years of
lobbying for the NAACP.
After stopping in Greenwich, Conn., Hart cancelled
a stop at a downtown Stamford shopping mall and
went on to Hartford.
In the radio talk show, Hart also brushed off
criticism that he was only appealing to the young,
more affluent voters, nicknamed young urban
professionals or "yuppies."
"If you look at the demographics of the voters who
have supported me, they're not yuppies, or yumpies
or whatever," said Hart spiritedly. "They're elderly
people, and 50 percent of union households - I am
appealing to a broad section of the country."
MASON, Mich (UPI) - Four more
defendants in the Michigan State
University gang rape case testified
yesterday that the alleged victim never
resisted having sex with them.
Testimony from a defense witness that
the alleged victim was "flirtatious"
drew objections from the prosecution,
and an instruction from the judge.
THE TESTIMONY BY defendants
Kevin Smith, David Duren, Previn
Dixon and Anthony Batiste wound up
the third week of the highly publicized
Seven young men are charged with
third degree criminal sexual conduct in
connection with a November, 1982 in-
cident in a MSU dormitory.,
The reported failure of the alleged
victim to actively resist their advances
has been a key issue in the trial.
The young woman has testified that
she told the men she did not want to
have sex with them, but was in a state
of shock during the ordeal.
Previn Dixon, the fifth of the defen-
dants to have sex with the alleged vic-
tim, said she consented to his request
for sex. "If she had said no, I would
have left," he said.
Batiste, who was sixth, was asked
whether the alleged victim could trust
him. "I didn't give her any reason not
to," he said.

protests baroom rape convictions
FALL RIVER, Mass. - About 10,000 people marched through narrow
streets to the courthouse yesterday to protest the barroom rape convictions
of four men, and many were angry at the spotlight turned on their Por-
"Over and over, we've heardhow we shouldn't be here in this country, that
we should all go, back," said Aldo Melo,.a leader of the city's large Po
tuguese community, told a cheering crowd at the steps of City Hall.
"We've been discriminated against in the schools and at work, but today
we show them how much we're worth," she said."We won't stand for it any
more. We won't be second-class citizens."
Demonstrators carried placards proclaiming: "95 percent of the Por-
tuguese people are honest," "We are here for justice," "Where are our
rights?" and "Railroading Portuguese men won't fight rape."
After seven hours of deliberation Thursday, a jury convicted two men of
raping a young woman on a pool table at Big Dan's tavern in nearby New
Bedford on March 6, 1983. Two other men were found innocent. Last Satur-
day, two men were convicted of aggravated rape in the same case.
Street battles erupt in Beirut
BEIRUT, Lebanon - Sunni Moslem militiamen recaptured their west
Beirut headquarters in bitter house-to-house fighting yesterday, just 24
hours after they were driven from their strongholds by rival anti-gover-
Other units of the Sunni Mourabitoun faction fanned out in a bid to recap-
ture from their Druze Moslem rivals a strategic section of the Green Line
which until Thursday linked Moslem West Beirut with the Christian eastern
half of the capital.
Police sources said at least 17 people were killed and 80 wounded in
fighting between the Druse and the Libian-backed Mourabitoun militias, and
that more victims might be trapped in areas ambulances could not reach.
The fighting came as French ambassador Fernand Wibaux told reporters
his government would announce within 48 hours it was pulling its troops -
the last members of the multinational peace-keeping force - from Beirut.,
Mills to pay clean air penalty
WASHINGTON - LTV Corp. and its subsidiary Jones & Laughlin Steel
Inc. agreed in a settlement with the government Friday to pay $4 million, the
largest cash penalty ever assessed under the Clean Air Act, and to spend $30
million to control air pollution at steel mills in three states.
The agreement would settle Justice Department claims that the com-
panies violated the act and three court orders requiring them to comply with
it. The government said the companies were liable for more than $109
million in penalties, but the companies denied they had violated either the
act or the orders.
If approved by the courts after a 30-day public comment period, new
consent orders would settle three contempt proceedings initiated by the
government in 1983 after Jones & Laughlin failed to install required air
pollution control equipment, including devices to remove soot and sulfur
from the emissions at some of its facilities.
Rise in consumer prices slows
WASHINGTON - Consumer prices rose only 0.4 percent in February -
less than in January - as cheaper gasoline helped balance higher food costs
and the biggest jump in heating oil prices in three years, the government
The February rate reported by the Labor Department was a reassuring
slowdown from January's 0.6 percent increase, showing fundamental
pressures on prices seem to be moderating even though interest rates have
"Inflation appears pinned to the mat," White House spokesman Larry
Most economists held to their projections that the inflation rate would rise
a moderate 5 percent or so this year although the combined inflation figures
for January and February was 6.1 percent.
Yet, a few economists worried that the economy's strong performance in
January and February, combined with the declining value of the dollar,
would lead to a bigger pickup in prices later this year.
Carmakers report strong sales
DETROIT - The U.S. auto industry continued strong sales in mid-March,
posting an estimated 33.7 percent gain over the 1983 period, and industry
analysts said yesterday that the recovery shows no signs of faltering.
General Motors Corp. sales were up 28.6 percent and Ford Motor Co. had a
52 percent gain. Chrysler Corp. reported a 26 percent increase. "By and
large, the rate of demand was pretty much what we've been expecting," said
Gary Glaser, an auto analyst with Sanford Bernstein & Co. Inc. in New
"It's still a pretty strong performance," agreed David Healy, analyst with
Drexel Burnham Lambert Inc. in New York. "It's up a third from last year
and by two different means of calculation, it's about 7.75 million for an an-
That annual rate is lower than the 8 million that prevailed during the sur-
prise boom of January and February, but still "is something they would
have given their eye teeth for a couple years ago," Healy said.
"For the next six months or so we would be looking for selling rates very
similar to what we've seen in the last two or three months, on average,"

Novelist learnedwgfnm mother
By ALLISON ZOUSMER
Success as a writer for black poet and
novelist Paule Marshall didn't come
from rigorous standardized instruction
in the four walls of a classroom.
It wasn't a teacher or books that
trained Marshall to be a writer, but
the influence of her mother and her
friends who worked as maids in a white
section of Brooklyn to help support
their families, she told an enthusiastic
audience of 60 yesterday in the Modern
AT A TIME when money was scarce
and the future looked grim "language
was the only outlet of their creative ex-
pression," said Marshall who has
taught at both Harvard and Yale
Universities. "(They) were more im-
portant than the books I read and
creative writing classes I took."
Quality writing stems from a true
love of language which Marshall lear-
ned at a young age, she said in a speech
sponsored by the Center for Afro-
American and African Studies.

As a child, Marshall would listen
carefully to these women's conver-
sations after they returned from work
each day without realizing that she was
developing a passion for words.
THE WOMEN used creative descrip-
tions in their conversation such as
describing a homely woman as having
"a face like an accident before it hap-
pened," Marshall explained.
"They were constantly enriching
English with Biblical quotes, -colorful
metaphors, and proverbs.
"Their spirit and special quality for-
ms my life and work. They taught me
without any of us being aware that a
teaching process was going on." she
From these women Marshall said she
learned "characterization, the beauty
and power of speech, how to shape a
story." And she also learned that she
was "no less for being a female."
Today, Marshall is a visiting
professor at the University of Califor-
nia in Berkeley with several novels to
her credit such as "Girls, Brown
Stones," and "Praise Song for the
Widow" which describes the problems
and triumphs of black families.
Marshall's speech was the third in a
series on women of distinction.
