Capture of antiwar radical mirrors group's violence

The capture of Kathy Boudin, a fugitive radical, almost closes the net that was around the Weather Underground, born in the antiwar rage of the late '60s. Some others are still at large.

Miss Boudin, the daughter of a prominent New York lawyer, Leonard Boudin, was arrested with three others Tuesday in a $1.6 million armored car robbery north of New York City in which two police officers and a Brink's guard were killed.

Her capture in such violent circumstances mirrored the urban guerrilla methods the Weather Underground admired. Ironically, however, most of the Weather leaders have surrendered peacefully in the past few years to face various charges.
