Debbie Races parents were asked to leave a Duluth courtroom Wednesday for being openly friendly with Larry Race, the man on trial for the death of their daughter. District Judge Jack Litman apparently believed the sight of Race embracing and talking to his in-laws, Frank and Sylvia Selvey, during court recesses would influence jurors. The Selveys, who had traveled from their home in Staples, to attend the trial, were quietly ushered from the courtroom by Races attorney, William Mahlum, before testimony began. Larry Race, 34, of Hoyt Lakes, is being tried on a first-degree murder charge in the death of his wife. Mrs. Race, 33, died from hypothermia in what her husband contends was an accident during a cruise on Lake Superior aboard the couples 21-foot boat in May 1982. The prosecution contends Larry Race killed his wife to collect insurance money and to get out of the marriage. Mahlum escorted the Selveys from the courtroom after a conference with prosecutor John DeSanto and Litman in Litmans chambers. The Selveys have stood behind Race since a grand jury indicted him Feb. 5 on first-degree murder charges connection with their daughters death. During recesses in the trial, Race has frequently walked over and sat with the Selveys, talking affectionately with them and on several occasions embracing his mother-in-law. Judicial board's action called illegal ST. PAUL A board member has accused the state Board on Judicial Standards of being pressured into violat- ing the law in the way it handled a complaint against Justice John Todd of the Minnesota Supreme Court. The board, which polices the conduct of Minnesota judges, Friday filed a complaint against Todd alleging that he cheated during a recent bar examination. However, the board over the weekend withdrew a request to the Supreme Court that a referee to appointed to hear the case. The board then directed its staff to keep the complaint confidential. Todd acknowledged that he had tried to keep the complaint from being made public. Everything that happened since Friday was illegal, said Ramsey County District Judge Hyam Segell, a board member. Segell said James Schumacher, a lawyer who heads the Doard, telephoned board members Sunday to get their approval to withdraw the request to the Supreme Court. His contact was illegal under the rules of the board, Segell said. He had no authority to do what he did. He was obviously getting pressure from somebody and trying to put that pressure on the board. Schumacher refused to comment on Segells allegations. 4r AP Laserphoto Going for the record Jerry Greer, left, and Chuck Guy, both from Agoura, to New York City, of Costa Mesa, will try to set a They have enclosed their 185cc motor-fuel-economy record of 210 miles per cycle in a specially-made 60-pound plas-qallon when they drive their motorcycle tic shell.

It was apathy. ,1 was lazy. On Tuesday, after her sentencing, Mrs. Bouza called her sons to tell them she would be going to jail.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -Although shes the wife of Minneapolis police chief. Erica Bouza says she expects to be treated like anyone else when she begins a 10-day sentence next week for trespassing in peace demonstrations. I broke the law, twice, and Im willing to take the consequences of my acts, Mrs. Bouza said Wednesday. Mrs. Bouza, 52, was among 577 protesters who were arrested at Honeywell Inc. during an Oct. 24 demonstration against the companys manufacture of parts for nuclear weapons. She and six other women were sentenced Tuesday. All had been arrested during a similar protest last April and their demonstration last week violated terms of their probation. The police chiefs wife got a 30-day sentence, but 20 days were suspended. If I were offered any privileges, I wouldnt accept them, she said. I want to be treated like anyone else, because I am like anyone else. Mrs. Bouza may be given a job to do, as are most inmates in the Hennepin County Adult Corrections Facility, known locally as the workhouse. Sigmund Fine, the superintendent of adult corrections, said Mrs. Bouza would likely work in food service or general housekeeping while serving her jail term. It will be unnerving being locked up where I cant leave, or see the sky, she said. Chief Tony Bouza, tongue-in-cheek, said he hoped some of his wifes friends and relatives would help her engineer an escape. But on a serious note, Bouza said he was sure his wife would be treated like anyone else when she enters the workhouse Nov. 10. Mrs. Bouza said she had never been arrested before the April protest and hadnt ever broken the law except for jaywalking in New York where everyone jaywalks. I dont like the idea of breaking the law but Im in despair about the state of the world, she said. I spent most of my life obeying the law, trying to do the right thing, raising a family, keeping the house clean, doing everything expected of a middle-class housewife.
