FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Prosecutors who were trying to find out what was cooking at the Kennedy mansion during the Easter weekend got little information about the alleged rape at the compound.But they learned how to make eggs a la Lee.Depositions from Kennedy compound cooks and servants released yesterday do not spill any revealing beans about the activities surrounding the March 30 case or the accused, William Kennedy Smith. But their testimony offers a glimpse of family life behind the compound walls, especially the Kennedys' eating and drinking habits.

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- Choking back tears, the 30-year-old Florida woman who has accused William K. Smith of raping her on the front lawn of the Kennedy compound took the witness stand yesterday and offered her anguished recollections of that night.Referring to him first as "Mr. Smith" and later simply as "that man," she recalled how the defendant changed from what she described as a "gentle" and "interesting" man she had met at the nightspot Au Bar a few hours earlier into a kind of fiend who knocked her to the ground, forced himself on her and flippantly told her afterward that if she ever accused him of rape, no one would ever believe her.During the rape, she said, and later when they encountered each other in the Kennedy home, "I thought he was going to kill me."

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- The judge in William Kennedy Smith's trial on rape charges said last night that Mr. Smith's lawyers violated state laws in obtaining the alleged victim's medical records and ordered them not to use the records in the trial that begins next week.That could deal a blow to the defense, which hoped to make an issue of the Florida woman's medical history, including abortions and use of prescription drugs. Even more significant, since much of that testimony already has been barred or is expected to be barred, is Judge Mary Lupo's condemnation of defense tactics in obtaining the records.
