The Governor, addressing a capacity audience in the New Dimeling Hotel ballroom short- ly after officially opening Shaf- er for Governor campaign headquarters in the former Mil- ler Hardware building next to the YMCA, emphasized the rec- ord "of extraordinary progress" his administration has made in the last four years, "a record on which Ray Shafer and his running mates are running this fall, and a record upon which they want to build an even bet- ter Pennsylvania for all Penn- sylvanians."

Yount murder- rape trial yesterday that in his opinion the defendant was temporarily insane at the time when 18-year-old Pamela Sue Rimer was killed and that he had "no know- ledge of the nature or qua- lity of his act." The psychiatrist, Dr. Sherman Pochapin of Pittsburgh, was one of two expert witnesses in the field of mental disorders called by the defense yesterday to substantiate its claim that the 28-year-old math teacher was legally insane when the murder was committed. This morning Allegheny Coun- ty Chief Deputy Coroner Dr. Cy- ril H. Wecht of Pittsburgh was on the stand throughout the en- tire session, to answer the charge of rape brought against Yount. Dr. Weeht, who is both a lawyer and a medical doctor specializing in criminal patho- logy, testified that in his opinion the sexual relations in the case occurred "18 hours or more" before the autopsy. (According to testimony the autopsy was performed some five hours after the murder.) Dr. Wecht said he based his conclusion on the autopsy re- port made by Biookville patholo- gist Dr. John Unger and on the microscopic examination made at the time of the autopsy. The slide, which had been examined under microscope and convinced Dr. Unger rape had occurred, was not submitted to Dr. Wecht until a little more than two weeks ago. He admitted under cross-ex- amination that he had not seen the girl's body or a picture of the body. The Pittsburgh pathologist al- so said that his conclusion that Yount could not have had sexual relations with the girl was" also based on the fact that she had lower part of her body.
