Newman "the fighting Quaker from Cambridge." Mrs. Newman, a moderate Republican who served in the Legislature, in Gov. Francis Sargent's Cabinet, and President Gerald R. Ford's administration, died of cancer Wednesday in Norumbega Point health care facilty in Weston. She was 86. Throughout her political career, she was always "guided by the Quaker principles which are so much a part of her family background: principles that emphasize education, hu-manitarianism, racial equality, prison reform, concern for the mentally ill, and an active opposition to war," according to a biography published last year, when she received the J. Joseph Moakley Award for Distinguished Public Service. Mrs. Newman was a state representative, manpower affairs secretary under Sargent and New England regional director of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare under Ford. She ran unsuccessfully for secretary of state in 1970 and chaired Gov. William F. Weld's campaign for attorney general in 1978. ' Born Mary B. Temple in Philadelphia, she graduated from Swarth-more College. ' In 1935, she married Edwin B. Newman. During World War II, they traveled to California, where they operated a Quaker conscientious objector camp. '.'In 1946, when her husband became a professor at Harvard University, they moved to Cambridge, where Mrs. Newman became active in both the city and state League of Women Voters. ; A; state representative from 1953 to 1970, she was "affirmed" rather than sworn into office by Gov. Paul Dever, because the Quaker faith doesn't allow swearing. She was only the second legislator to be "affirmed" in Massachusetts.

(This was during the era of Sen. Joe McCarthy). . . why did she do that?" she said in 1994. In 1970, when she ran unsuccessfully for secretary of state, Globe political reporter Carol Surkin described her as "a quick-witted, hardworking legislator who possesses a pleasing combination of intelligence and charm. While holding a record as a constructive and enterprising legislator, she also retains her lively wit." She wTas the only woman in Sargent's Cabinet and became a leader in the early stages of the women's liberation movement. In a 1972 Globe interview, she encouraged women to "shed their aprons" and enter government, "one area in which too few women are employed." She was an executive member of the Massachusetts Taxpayers Association and became a visiting professor at the University of Massachusetts in Boston in 1975. She took a leave of absence for a year to take the regional director's post under President Ford, and returned to UMass, where she lectured until recently.

Detective David Diamond was part of a stepped-up patrol of an area of North Cambridge where about 35 armed robberies have occurred in the last three months, said Frank Pasquarello, a police spokesman. At about 7:15 p.m. the three youths approached Diamond, pointed a small black firearm at him and ordered the detective to give up his cash. Instead, Diamond drew his own firearm and ordered the three suspects to stop, Pasquarello said. After a brief foot chase and a building search, three suspects were captured and placed under arrest. Police are investigating the possibility that the attempted holdup was related to similar robberies in the area, Pasquarello said. SUSAN E. NEFF
