CM 8 2 Clear Ron aides in Portman flap There is no evidence that the White House exerted undue political pressure to raze two Broadway theaters for construction of the Portman Hotel project in Times Square, a Manhattan Federal Court judge ruled yesterday. Judge Kevin Duffy extended until Monday the ban on demolishing the Helen Hayes and Morosco theaters to allow time for the Natural Resources Defense Council to appeal his decision. Duffy said that Interior Secretary James Watt and former White House aide Lyn Nofziger did not exert undue pressure on the Advisory Council on Historic Preservation to block efforts to save the two theaters. HOMELESS FROM PAGE THREE approach, emergency court orders have been obtained in the last week for Carter and three other women, including one who was" living in the vestibule of a building at night The Short-Term Involuntary Protective Services Law, a state measure, permits a 72-hour period of commitment if a person is deemed in imminent danger and unaware of the consequences. An agency can seek a 72-hour extension of that commitment . In each case, a court-appointed lawyer must visit the scene, verify the life-threatening situation and report to the judge before an order is issued. Trobe stressed that the orders are short-term and not meant to hold people against their will for any length of time. "We can't use this order to keep people permanently." he said.' In the majority of cases, city workers learn of the people through neighbors, he said. BESIDES CARTER, the three women who were taken into custody in the last week are: Agnes Castellano, 64, a cancer victim who had no heat in her Brooklyn apartment She refused to leave her home, and within two days city officials obtained a court order to take her to Kings County Hospital.

She was living in an abandoned building she owns in Brooklyn, with no heat or electricity. After being treated at Cumberland Hospital, she was placed in a Queens home for the aged. ' Alma Brown, 38, who was living in the vestibule of a bank at 42d St and Ninth Ave. When city workers approached her Monday, she ran away. An order allowing city officials to take her to Roosevelt Hospital for treatment was granted after she was interviewed by a psychiatrist Officials now are working on three other cases. They said the courts have been agreeable, but they warned against an abuse of the individual's civil rights. Robert Hayes, an attorney representing the homeless, said the involuntary cases are a negligible number and that more decent shelters would eliminate involuntary custody.
