from the waist We do not have all the It may turn out that Goetz is possibly as a consequence of the mugging he endured in Witnesses may come forward to testify that the youths were merely highspirited and evidenced no intention of inflicting bodily a few recollections and I believe I know what Goetz has gone I wanted to kill the two teenagers who robbed After the in cident I went by a

other bullets into their bleeding bodies just to make I 1 would be arrested and but a jury would acquit me without leaving the and the courtroom would ring with The foreman of the jury would tell We wanted to vote you a Pocketapocketa said Walter In New Goetz already is a folk I didnt buy the and I have to be sorry that Goetz did what he says he The law recognizes a right of but the law says that the forms of such defense must be appropriate to the At the moment Goetz arose and so far as we the screwdrivers had not Other passengers were looking Two of the youths reportedly were shot in the back as they attempted to get But having been through a I can tell you that while my mind tells me Goetz was my gut aches with understanding for The four may have meant to kill but they meant at least to humiliate to frighten him out of his to impose their will upon You man You better be cause you gonna give us your Now I We have to live by the mind and not by the The IRT goes from 14th to 96th

ByTERRENCEHUNT AP Writer WASHINGTON With most of the Republican establishment and even his wife sure hell George Bush has asked associates to lay down a prudent plan reserving a spot for him in the 1988 race for the Republican presidential I dont want to leave something undone so that I couldnt make a prudent decision a couple years from Bush said in an interview with The Associated less than two weeks before he is sworn in for a second term as Ronald Reagans vice Bush said that if he does he doesnt necessarily expect Reagans He insisted he hasnt made a about He isnt leaning one way or he he he is doing some thinking with a handful of friends to figure out what it is I need to the minimum I need to to make a prudent decision a couple years from I havent really schemed or stayed in touch or formalized our lists of all the deadly things you have to do if youre going to Bush weve got to start thinking about what are the things to do so you can make a prudent decision a couple years from Bush said that once his associates come up with plan to keep his options open for 1988 he has instructed them to bring it to him before they go He said he told them Lets discuss I want to keep a feel on this I think Ive got reasonably good political Bush said he was not inching closer toward running but inching closer toward doing those things that are necessary in order to make a prudent Even though the race is four years other potential Republican candidates already are quietly lining up media experts and fund raisers and are trying to make sure that GOP leaders across the country dont commit themselves to rival Some probable can didates already have set up political action Jack has hired a number of new staff members with national experience on his congressional but

morning briefing for reporters at the White House this Larry Speakes had aides distribute a single typewritten sheet of paper with no letterhead or other indication of its It began SENIOR AD MINISTRATION and went on to quote excerpts from remarks the unidentified official made the day before to a selected group of The official hinted President Reagan might go along if Congress insists on

He offered only three short paragraphs from a lengthy transcript which his deputies of the reporters who had attended the meeting had for some of the quotes that werent included on the sheet said flatly Reagan would continue to fight any change in Social Asked if the paper represented the position of the Speakes I think you could say it reflects the thinking of the Who was the senior administration official Speakes refused to identify him but I would be glad to tell you off the so you can give weight to these He then named the source on condition those who heard him not identify the Others who had been present at the didnt hesitate to identify the official as White House Chief of Staff James Baker It was the latest twist in the ad ministrations use of an increasingly convoluted background rule to spread its views while hiding behind the curtain of But try as they the officials sometimes trip over their own Last Speakes welcomed reporters to what he called a
