Saxbe asserts Hearst
shouldn't meet demands
By The Associated Press
Atty. Gen. William Saxbe said
at a news conference yesterday
that he believes federal authori-
ties can identify most of the kid-
napers of the 19 - year - old
daughter of newspaper publisher
Saxbesaid if federal officials
knew where Patricia Hearst was
being held "they'd go get her."
He said he believes it would be
a dereliction of duty for FBI
agents notttoytry to rescue Ms.
Hearst if they know where she
HOWEVER, THE FBI later is-
sued a statement which appar-
ently contradicted Saxbe's re-
"We have not identified any
suspects and we will do nothing
to jeopardize the girl's life,"
the FBI said.
In a stinging rebuke to the at-
torney general, Hearst stated,
"Mr. Saxbe is not the father of
Patricia. I'm going to do what I
can to get her out."
"To make a statement that you
are going to bust in and shoot
the place up from Washington is
d a m n e d near irresponsible,"
Hearst said from his Hillsbor-
ough, Calif. home.
SAXBE ISSUED a later state-
ment apparently backing down
from his earlier remarks: "I
have no certain knowledge there
are suspects identified in con-
nection with this matter nor
would I want the FBI to pursue
any action which would in any
way jeopardize the life of the
young victim in this case."
Saxbe also said at the original
news conference that he does
not believe the Hearst family
should comply with the demands
of her kidnapers.
"I certainly wouldn't recom-
mend any compliance with such
vague and unrealistic demands
-what they are asking is even
beyond theability of government
to perform," Saxbe told report-
"YOU DON'T catch kidnapers
or save the victim by doing what
the kidnapers say," he added.
Asked if Saxbe stands by his
statement that the Hearst fam-
ily should reject the ransom de-
mands, Justice Dept. Spokes-
man Horace Webb said Saxbe
does not intend "to amplify, add
to or subtract from" that com-
A group calling itself the
claims to hold the girl and has
demanded that her father ar-
range to provide $70 worth of
food to each poor personrintCali-
fornia. Hearst has said he is
preparing a counteroffer but be-
lieves it impossible to comply
fully with a program estimated
to cost as much as $400 million.

ESTIMA TE FOR '74:
Rising food prices predicted

WASHINGTON (JP) - Super-
market food prices are expected
to climb 12 per cent in 1974 but
could soar as much as 16 per
cent and ,mnatch last year's rise
which was the sharpest in a
THE AGRICULTURE Depart-
ment said yesterday consumers
now are seeing the biggest in-
creases expected this year. If
farmers produce record crops
and turn out more livestock next
summer, consumers mignt see
prices level off and possibly de-
cline by year end, officials said.
But meanwhile, the Outlook
and Situation Board said, super-
market food prices in the first
quarter are up five per cent from
the last three months of 1973.
And compared with Januarv-
March last year, those prices are
expected to be up 20.7 per cent.
Last December, in a prelim-
inary analysis, the department
said grocery store food prices
would rise about 15 per cent in
the first quarter.
A YEAR AGO, USDA predicted
1973 food prices in stores would
climb no more than 6.5 per cent,
They rose 16 per cent on an
all-year average basis.
Commenting on the first quart-I
er situation, the board said "pric-
es for practically all major cate-j
gories are rising." Reduced sup-
plies, higher farm prices a n d

farms to consumers were blam-
