Testifying for the first time about how he shot four young men on a subway in 1984, Bernhard H. Goetz said "that smile" and "that shine" in one of the youth's eyes made him snap. He also acknowledged he had thought about using his keys to gouge out the wounded youth's eyes. "I was trying to get as many of them as I could," Goetz testified in a $50-million lawsuit filed by a paralyzed Darrell Cabey. Cabey, now 30, is said to have the brain capacity of an 8-year-old because of the shooting.

State Supreme Court Justice Stephen Crane ruled today that a second grand jury investigation in the case of subway gunman Bernhard Goetz may proceed, rejecting arguments from Goetz's attorneys that there was no new evidence to warrant the new panel. The second grand jury has already begun hearing testimony, including that of James Ramseur, one of four teen-agers Goetz shot on an suway train Dec. 22. Goetz claimed that the teen-agers surrounded him and demanded $5. Ramseur denied the claim.

Shirley Cabey saved all the letters--the ones that called her son a "nigger," that wished the boy had died, that threatened his life if he survived the gunshot that sliced through his spine. Each note, with its ugly words and racial venom, sits pressed today inside the Cabey family's Bible. The Good Book, like Shirley and her son Darrell, remains where it was when the letters arrived 10 years ago--in an apartment in a South Bronx housing project.

James Ramseur, one of the four teen-agers shot by subway vigilante Bernhard Goetz last year, was arrested today on charges of raping and robbing a young woman on a roof landing last month, authorities said. Police arrested Ramseur, 18, after the victim identified him in a lineup at the 48th Precinct in the Bronx, sources said. Ramseur was wounded by Goetz in a widely publicized subway shooting last Dec. 22. Goetz, 37, said he fired in self-defense as the four youths menaced him.
