NEW -YORK - Linda Evans,
one of 12 Weathermen wanted
in Chicago in connection with
riots there last October, was
arrested by FBI agents yesterday
on the lower East Side of Man-
Seized with her was Thomas
Neiman, 22, of Staten Island,
who was accused of assaulting
an FBI man during the arrest
of Miss Evans.
Miss Evans was indicted by
a federal grand jury in Chi-
cago April 10 with 11 other
members of the Weatherman
faction of the Students for a
Democratic Society (SDS).
The whereabouts of the re-
mainig 11 Weathermen re-
mains a mystery.
FBI agents, who are con-
ducting a nationwide search
for the other 11 are not com-
menting, on the case.
A Chicago law enforcement
official, who declined to be
identified, said some of those
sought may still be hiding in
Chicago, where a federal grand
jury charged them April 2 with
violating the federal antiriot
The Weathermen have closed
all their communes in Chicago
and New York, the official said.
"There used to be two or three
places you could go and there'd
always be somebody," he said.
"Now there's nobody."
T h e Weatherman leaders
dropped out of sight more than
a month ago, before they were
scheduled to appear in local
courts on state and local charg-
es stemming from street ram-
pages Oct. 8-11.
Chicago police reported trat
one of the 12 indicted leaders,
Bernardine Dohrn, 28, was
sighted on a North Side street,
several days before a cache
of dynamite and guns was found
in a North Side apartment on

national secretary, also is being
sought by Chicago police for
questioning in connection with

scribed by police as a "bomb
factory." Police say she- fits

Thomas A. Foran, U.S. dis-
trict attorney, says, "it's going
to be difficult to find some of
these people." He has tended
to discount reports the radi-
cals have fled to Canada.
Chicago police also say they
have no knowledge that any
of the 12-eight men and four
women-are in Canada or Cuba.
Foran said "a trial could be-
gin without all 12 being in cus-
tody" and that it might be
held as early as September.
The federal case against the
12 is the second test of the
controversial 1968 "Rap Brown"

TWO BLACK PANTHER CHIEFS have received six-month
jail sentences after being charged with contempt of court.
David Hilliard, chief of staff and Elmer Douglas, the party's
minister of culture received the sentences during°a hearing of five
party members charged in a murder case.
A scuffle with sheriff's deputies came as Hilliard and Douglas
were huddled together in the spectator's section reading a sheaf of
papers. A deputy reportedly ,told them not to read while court was
in session, and the scuffle ensued. The court has banned demon-
strations during court sessions in the Panther cases.
