Hazel Diane "Rasheeda" Moore, D.C. Mayor Marion Barry's girlfriend-turned-FBI informant, placed at least 214 calls to Barry's command center over a 45-month period ending in January, according to the center's telephone logs, introduced into evidence Friday at Barry's cocaine and perjury trial.

The calls from Moore far outnumber those recorded from other frequent callers, including Bettye Smith, who placed more than 60 calls during that period, and Rose Marie "Maria" McCarthy, who called more than 40 times.

Smith worked for W.R. Lazard & Co., once the city's top financial adviser, but quit in December 1987 after it was revealed that she traveled with Barry to the Bahamas. McCarthy was also a close female friend of the mayor's, who spent a month in jail this year before agreeing to testify against Barry.

The logs, maintained by the D.C. Office of Emergency Preparedness, reflect calls to the mayor after business hours and on weekends. Prosecutors are expected to use the logs to argue in court that many of their witnesses, particularly Moore, were among Barry's closest and most trusted friends. As such, the prosecutors will argue, their testimony should be believed.

Barry yesterday castigated prosecution witnesses as liars and chastised the news media for not reminding the public that he enjoys a constitutional presumption of innocence in his case.

In his most extensive public remarks about the trial since it began in earnest on Monday, Barry urged reporters not to regard the testimony of the prosecution's witness as "gospel."

"They're not reading from the Torah or the Koran or the Bible," Barry said. "They can lie, and they often do."

According to sources familiar with the case, U.S. Attorney Jay B. Stephens has changed his witness schedule, and now plans to call Moore as a witness as early as tomorrow. That change would mean the videotape of the undercover sting at the Vista Hotel on Jan. 18 could be played in court on Tuesday, sources said.

Originally, Stephens had planned to open the trial with Charles Lewis's testimony about the Ramada Inn episode and end the government's case with Moore's testimony and the Vista tape, sources said. But prosecutors were pleased with the testimony of convicted cocaine dealer Lewis and D.C. government employee James D. McWilliams, sources said. Prosecutors decided that presenting Moore's testimony early would maintain their momentum, the sources said.

Most of the names on the telephone logs appear to be friends of Barry's, and the vast majority of calls do not appear to be business related.

There are dozens of calls from people who, like Moore, have been named by federal prosecutors as unindicted co-conspirators in the case.

Among the more frequent callers are A. Jeffrey Mitchell, a longtime Barry friend and Washington advertising executive; Lloyd N. Moore Jr., a Washington lawyer; Tony Jones, a Washington businessman and city contractor; Daniel Butler, a former advisory neighborhood commissioner and frequent late-night companion of the mayor's; Willie Davis, a former aide to Birmingham Mayor Richard Arrington; and Doris Crenshaw, a political activist and longtime Barry friend. Lloyd Moore and Rasheeda Moore are not related.

Other frequent callers are Gaylord Tissueboo, a former Barry photographer; Hassan H. Mohammadi, a longtime Washington restaurateur and D.C. lottery board contractor; Hank Wilson, a former Washington public relations executive; and Darrell Sabbs, a former city employee and longtime Barry friend. Also among the more frequent callers are close female friends Theresa Southerland and Maria McCarthy. All of these frequent callers are among the 19 named co-conspirators, sources said.

Other frequent callers include Carthur A. Drake, owner of the DAC Corp.; R. Donahue Peebles, former chairman of the D.C. board that oversees property assessment appeals and a major city contractor; and Wanda Stansbury, a close Barry friend. Drake and Stansbury are listed as possible prosecution witnesses in the Barry case, as is Tivia Hoppenstein, a close female friend of Peebles'.

According to an FBI transcript of the videotape recorded during the Vista sting, Barry mentions Peebles early in his conversation with Moore. He refers to Peebles' house in Georgetown as a site for romantic encounters, according to the transcript.

Some of the log entries also contain cryptic messages. For example, the log for May 22, 1988, contains this message from Jones: "Please call. Ring twice and hang up and call again."

Prosecutor Richard W. Roberts introduced the telephone records into evidence on Friday, during the testimony of McWilliams. At the time, Roberts noted that the log showed calls to Barry from McWilliams immediately after the Ramada episode of Dec. 22, 1988.

Roberts noted in court that not all of the logs were presented as evidence. The log appears to cover most of the days in the 45-month period between April 1986 and January 1990. The page for Dec. 22, 1988 -- the day D.C. detectives aborted a drug sting of Lewis at the Ramada -- was not included in the exhibit.

Sources familiar with the case said the telephone logs, obtained by the grand jury after Barry's arrest, were a valuable resource to investigators. The records were used both to corroborate statements by witnesses and as leads that guided investigators to additional witnesses, the sources said.

Barry made his remarks about the case yesterday outside the Park Hyatt hotel, where he attended a breakfast with 200 of his political supporters. The mayor said he felt "comfortable" commenting on his trial because the jury had been sequestered with no access to news reports about the case.

Barry's comments followed testimony last week by Lewis about alleged cocaine use by Barry at the Ramada. Subsequent testimony by McWilliams, who also was at the hotel, supported part of Lewis's account.

Barry suggested yesterday that those who are following the trial may be forgetting a central tenet of U.S. constitutional law: a defendant's right to be presumed innocent until proven guilty.

"The burden is on the government to prove my guilt, and not on me and my lawyers to prove my innocence," the mayor said. "The burden is on the government to prove the truthfulness and the veracity of their witnesses, and not on my lawyers to prove the non-veracity or the untruthfulness of the witnesses."

"And {it's} not just a simple burden, either, on the government -- it's a mighty burden," Barry added. "Can't be 50-50. It has to be beyond a reasonable doubt. These jurors have to be convinced beyond a reasonable doubt that I'm guilty, not that I'm innocent."

The mayor faulted the news media for not highlighting that legal safeguard.

"The media has not really seized upon that, I don't think, to try to convey to the American public in general, and Washington in particular that the burden is not on me. I don't do anything."
