U.S. Defense Secretary Caspar

THEIR SECOND session of this year

alliance for greater attention on what it
calls an urgent need to improve
NATO's ability to fight a conventional
NATO officials, insisting that the
divisive debate over the alliance's
deployment of intermediate-range
missiles is largely over, recently have
stressed the alliance's need for more
money and better development
programs for conventional arms.
Gen. Bernard Rogers, the top com-
mander of NATO forces in Western
Europe, said during NATO field exer-
cises in West Germany last month that
without a better conventional defense,
NATO would be forced within days of a

Soviet conventional attack on Europe to
resort to nuclear arms.
FEW OF THE NATO allies have
fulfilled the alliance's stated goal of in-
creasing national defense spending by
at least 3 percent a year. Rogers has
said a 7 percent growth rate is needed
to prevent NATO from falling further
behind the Warsaw Pact in conven-
tional warfare readiness.
The allied commander has said
major additions to the conventional
force in Europe, which would include
increasing stores of ammunition,
equipment and ready manpower, would
extend the time NATO could hold off a
large-scale Soviet attack until reserves
arrived from the United States and
Senior NATO officials have stressed
in recent interviews that they view the
alliance's most controversial nuclear
issue - the deployment of 572 U.S.-
made cruise and Pershing 2 missiles in
Western Europe - to have been
defused by the successful start of
deployment last December. The
massive public demonstrations by anti-
nuclear groups that preceded the
deployment have since faded.
NATO has refused to disclose the
number of new missiles that have been
installed. The defense ministers
meeting in Stresa will review the
deployment, according to a senior
NATO official who spoke on condition of
The ministers also are expected to
discuss the Dutch government's reluc-
tance to accept its share of 48 cruise

missiles. The Netherlands said in June
that it would delay by two years the
scheduled deployment on Dutch soil-
that NATO had established for 1986:
The number of missiles the Dutch,,
would accept was left undecided.

evidence of faltering resolve among;.

Former lawyer receives parole

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Mary Evans, a former
lawyer who fell in love with an armed robber, helped
im escape from prisonf and spent 139 days with him
on the run, won parole yesterday after admitting she
made "a serious mistake."
Evans, 27, is to be released Feb. 4, 1985, after ser-
ving nearly 11 months of a three-year sentence, the
Board of Paroles ruled in a 3-2 decision. The law
requires her to serve a minimum of just under 11
SHE WILL also be required to report to a
"qualified counselor," said Nevin Trammell, the

During a parole hearing at the Women's Prison in
Nashville, Ms. Evans sat quietly with her parents, an-
swering questions from board members about her
part in the 1983 escape of convict William Timothy
Kirk. "There's no doubt in my mind at all that it
was a serious mistake," Evans said at one point. "I
do regret the pressure on my family. I do regret the
most all they have had to go through because of me."
Psychiatrists testified then Evans was mentally ill,
that she was attracted to Kirk and may have loved
him "in the sense that an infant loves a parent." They

said she thought he could save her form demonic
voices in her head and "alien things that tormented
Evans, who has since been disbarred,, pleaded
guilty in March to aiding and abetting the escape in
March 1983, and received a three-year sentence.
In July, NBC announced plans for a television
movie based on Evans' escapade. She has said,
however, that she will fight any attempt to portray
her story in books or films.

test for judges before they, are selected

for the federal court. And then Jerry
Falwell announces that means they get
at least two justices of the Supreme
Court - I think that's abuse of faith in
our country," Mondale said.
The GOP platform adopted in Dallas
in August continued the 1980 stance of

saying all judges should take a "pro-
life" stance.
"WE REAFFIRM our support for the
appointment of judges at all levels of
the judiciary who respect traditional
family values and the sanctity of in-
nocent human life," the platform reads.

ler Reagan
The "sanctity of innocent human
life" is a phrase often used by anti-
abortion activists to describe their own
Falwell said the remade court would
probably outlaw 90 percent of all abor-
tions with such a decision, but he
cautioned abortion opponents not to ex-
pect an end to all abortions.
"I don't expect rulings without excep-
tions," including rape, incest and con-
ditions that endanger the mother's life,
he said.
Mondale invoked Falwell's name in
the debate in connection with the abor-
tion issue.
Falwell also criticized political and
religious leaders who decried what they
call an attempt by Reagan to mix
religion and politics to win support from
fundamentalist voters. Liberal church
leaders became deeply involved in
political and social issues in the past
two decades without criticism of their
practices by other liberals, he said.
"What it really amounts to is a bit of
hypocrisy," he added. "I think they just
have to realize that what's good for the,
liberal goose is good for the conser-
vative gander."
