LONDON (AP) - A British
documentary broadcast yesterday
shows a calm Mark Davis Chapman
telling police he heard a voice in his
head saying "Do it! Do it! Do it!"
before he pulled a gun from his
pocket and killed ex-Beatle John
Chapman, in an almost languid
taped confession to New York City
police, said he killed Lennon because
the beloved singer-songwriter had
forsaken his ideals and become "a
complete phony."
He also said he was playing out
the role of Holden Caulfield, hero of
The Catcher in the Rye, J. D.
Salinger's classic novel about a
troubled adolescent.
"I'm indeed the Catcher in the Rye
of this generation," he told invest-
igators in the taped account soon
after he pumped five bullets into
Lennon outside his Manhattan apart-
ment on Dec. 8, 1980.
Yorkshire Television, which made
the film for its "First Tuesday" doc-
umentary series, said the tapes have
never been heard in public. They did
not emerge in court because Chap-
man cut short the August 1981
murder trial by pleasing guilty. Now
31, Chapman is serving a life sen-
tence at.Attica state penitentiary.

the time of his death, as were
Supreme Court Justices Dennis W.
Archer and Patricia Boyle, said Tom
Farrell, spokesman for the state
Supreme Court.
"A giant had fallen," Michigan
Gov. James Blanchard said in a
statement. "He was a giant in
Michigan politics and in Michigan
life. No one gave more unselfishly
to the public good in Michigan than
Governor Williams."
"My colleagues and I ar e

news of the passing of our beloved
colleague and friend," state Supreme
Court Chief Justice Dorothy

Comstock Riley said in a statement.
"He will be remembered always as
the governor of the people and a
justice of the people. "
"His parting is painful, but our
memories of him run long and deep."
Farrell said Williams had been
planning a trip in May to the Soviet
Union. He said Williams had
recovered from 1983 surgery for
prostate cancer.

Local anti-Contra aid activists
saw Pursell's comments as potential
justification for supporting Contra

military action would lead Pursell to
support Contra aid as an alternative.

Pursell would support Contra aid
