FBI's 10 Most Wanted List Can Be Expanded If Needed By TOM SEPPY I WASHINGTON (AP) _ The FBI's list of most wanted fugitives has leveled off at 10, with rtiore than half of them political revolutionaries, and there is no Indication it will be expanded In the near future. But there is no reason why it 1 couldn't, should the need 'arrive. "We're not wedded to (he number ten," said Jack E. He- rlngton, the FBI spokesman. We would like to keep it at 10. If 't's necessary, we'll add names to the list." The 23-year-old Ten Most Wanted Fugitives program first went over 10 in 1961 when hatchet-killer Richard Mar- ·juette was put on the list. He was arrested the following day. . In late 1970, however, the FBI list reached a record high ·· with 16 people, nine of them sought for such crimes as sabotage and terrorist acts. The current list, which was reduced to 10 last summer, contains the names of seven so- called political revolutionaries. Herington said that the politi cal fugitives have caused the Investigative agency . so problems because they '. nave fled the country to a sanctuary where the U.S. has no jurisdiction, such as Algeria. ; Another problem, he said, is - that the political fugitive doesn't travel in the same cir cles as the traditional bank rob her or murderer whose appre · hensicn built the reputation o: Accomplishment for the FBI. .' . "They move in a differen culture," he said. "The politica fugitive does not move in th ' normal 'underground system. I makes it more difficult for us. CAPTURED ; On Feb. 17. 1972, Karleton . Lewis Armstrong, one of foil men wanted in connection wit! a fatal bombing on the Univer *ity of Wisconsin campus, wa captured by Canadian police ii Toronto. Only one other person on th then-list of 12 was apprehendei during the year--Byron J. Ric who had been charged with th murder of an armored ca . guard. He surrendered to FB agents in Chicago last Aug. 1. There have been 317 person . nut on the most wanted fugitiv list since its inception in 19E and 295 have been appre hended.

Acting FBI director L. Palick Gray III. and J. Edgar ioover before him. decides 'hat fugitives are placed on he Top Ten list after receiving ecommendations from the eld. Hoover personally ordered he list lo be expanded in 1961 nd 1970 because he thought it 'as of utmost importnnce that he fugitives be caught. Asked about the criticism lat the FBI puts the name ol ugitives they are about to cap- ure on the list. Herington relied that the charge was ridic- lous. "There hasn't been a single ase like that." he said. "We on't get any extra points For a op 10 fugitive. If we can catch fugitive, we'll catch him." He said there have been uick arrests because the pro ram work";. EFFECTIVE "The method has been effec ive because we have appre icnded fugitives after he ha, been on the list for only 24 o: 8 hours," he said.."But some ody may see his picture in the aper-'or on television and spo lim on the street. That person vill call the FBI and we ar hen able to move rapidly." The newest addition to th' fop Ten list is Mace Brown, a convicted hired assassin w h o participated in an escape from the District of Columbia jail ast fall. He was put on last Oct. 20. Charles Lee Herrpn, one of 'ive men allegedly involved in .he slaying of one police officer and the critical wounding of another, in Nashville, Tenn., on Jan. 16, 1968, was placed on the list on Feb. 9. 1988. and has been on the longest. The others are Benjamin H. Paddock, who escaped from a federal prison in Texas while serving a 20-year sentence; Cameron D. Bishop, charged with sabotage in the dynamit ing of Colorado power transmission towers; · Also, Dwight A. Armstrong, Leo Burt and David Fine, a\ wanted in the University ol Wisconsin bombing; Bernardine Dohrn, a self-described revolu tionary Communist and leader of the Weatherman; and Susan E.

On the other side, there's the constant complaint that it will cut into managerial strategy, will cheapen statistical records and also allbw overweight, over-the-hill hitters lo stick around in the major leagues. "It doesn't seem like baseball." says Craig Stolze of the Rochester, N.Y., Democrat and Chronicle, who saw the designated hitter tried in the Class AAA Internatonal League.

"Don't give us gimmicks," said Bill Davis of the Fort Wayne, Ind., Journal-Gazette, "give us good pennant races." The American League begins a three-year trial of the DH this year while their brothers from the National have turned it down. When the leagues collide in the World Series, All- Star Game or even spring training, the old system will be in effect with no designated hitter.
