after the principal demand had
been received, Hearst received
another message from his kid-
napped daughter and her abduc-
"It was never, intended that
you feed the whole state," Pa-
tricia told her family in a tape
recorded message. "So whatever
you come up with, is basically
okay. They (the SLA) have every
intention that you should be able
to meet their demands, and they
understand that you want to."
THE HEARSTS received that
communique through the Rev-
erend Cecil Williams, pastor of a
counter-culture church in San.
The Reverend Williams, who
also organized a coalition of
groups to oversee the food dis-
tribution, said yesterday, "I am
convinced that Patty Hearst is
going to be released. I am also
convinced that the peoples of
this land that have gone hungry
are going to be fed."

WASHINGTON (Reuter) - The
Secret Service yesterday dropped
charges against a young A r m y
private forced down by gunfire in
a stolen military helicopter on the.
White House grounds early Sunday.
The soldier, 20-year-old Private
Robert Preston, instead turned him-
self over voluntarily to the Army
for legal action.
Preston, a chubby-faced, f a i r-
haired youth, made a brief appear-
axice in a local court where hr fac-
ed charges of unlawful entry into
White House grounds.
Army sources said he likely
would be charged with unlawful ap-
propriation of government proper-
ty, which carries a maximum sen-
tence of three to five years in the

stockade and dishonorable dis-
PRESTON HAD commandeered
an Army Huey-1HB helicopter from
Fort Meade Army Base shortly af-
ter midnight Sunday and went on a
wild two-hour joyride over the 25-
mile highway between the Mary-
land base and Washington, pur-
sued by Maryland State Police
Preston commandeered the heli-
copter with ease as he drove onto
the airfield at the Fort M e a d e,
He careened along the Washing-
ton-Baltimore Highway, buzzing po-
lice cars and other venicles, made
a low pass over Washington's Na-
tional Airport and then swung over
the White House, where S e c r e t

Service agents and police w e r e
immediately put on the alert.
Preston zig-zagged back towards
Fort Meade, chased by two Mary-
land State Police helicopters, then
returned to the White House amost
exactly an hour after his f i r s t
pass over the stately colonial style
executive mansion.
. This time, guards were ready.
Blasting away with shotguns, 4hey
forced the errant pilot to what one
'agent called "a rough landing' on
the White House south lawn.
PRESTON, who suffered super-
ficial gunshot wounds in the leg
and buttocks, was nulled from the
aircraft, handc'ffed and led away
to Walter Reed Hosoital for treat-
ment. He was later taken to the
local police headquarters to, be
charged with trespessing Q and then
returned to Walter Reed's psychia-
tric department.
After his brief apearance in
court yesterday mornina, he was
handcuffed and taken frorn t h e
building with an army -ind civilian
police escort, hustled into an armrly
police car and driven at high speed
back to Walter Reed Hlositai.
A hospital sookesperioo S a i d
Preston was being kept under close
guard at the psychiatric w i n g

he would remain there.
