HILLSBOROUGH, Calif. (IP) --.
On the eve of her 20th birthday,
Patricia Hearst remained a cap-
tive yesterday as her parents
once again waited a response
from a band of terrorist kid-
napers.
Patricia Hearst's parents asked
her kidnapers yesterday to make
the ultimate "gesture of sincer-
ity" in return for their $2 mil-
lion pledge to feed the poor: free
their daughter on Wednesday,
her 20th birthday.
"I EXPECT them to make a
gesture of sincerity themselves
and naturally in my position and
Mrs. Hearst's position, the ges-
ture they could make would be
the release of our daughter,"
said newspaper executive Ran-
dolph Hearst.
"But this $2 million is not ran-
som."
Hearst also said yesterday he
almost has worked out details of
the food distribution plan with
the coalition of community
groups named as observers by
the Symbinese Liberation Army.
He said he hoped-to announce it
"hopefully quite soon, hopefully
tonight."
California Atty. .Gen. Evelle
Younger said yesterday he would
not prosecute anyone who ac-
cepted the food. He also sug-
gested the Red Cross and Sal-
vation Army as possible charita-
ble organizations that might han-
die the distribution.
Hearst had said over the week
end there were legal problems to
be worked out in connection with
the food distribution plan. He
said, for example, that persons
accepting the food might be vio-
lating the laws by taking part in

extortion activities.
T H E MONEY was avail-
able yesterday-the deadline set
by the kidnapers for a response
to their demands - but Hearst
continued searching for a suit-
able organization to handle the
food distribution program.
Food industry officials said $2
million would provide enough
food to stock 34 supermarkets.
IN A SECOND good faith
gesture the gray-haired presi-
dent and editor of the San Fran-
cisco Examiner asked noted San
Francisco attorney William Co-
blentz to ensure that two SLA
members facing murder charges
get a fair trial.
Coblentz, who serves on the
University of California board of
regents with Hearst's wife, Cath-
erine, said he would not be coun-
sel for Russell Little, 24, and Jo
seph Remiro, 27, but would act
as a "kind of ombudsman" in
the case.

CHICAGO (P) - Seven men in
three companies were indicted
yesterday in connection with a
scheme which allegedly defraud-
ed Teamsters Union pension
funds of more than $1.4 million.
U. S. Attorney James Thomp-
son said that some of the indi-
viduals charged obtained loans
from the Central States, South-
east and Southwest areas pen-
sion funds for the purposes of a
manufacturing project in Dem-
ing, New Mexico.
"Instead, the money was
siphoned' off and diverted to
others involved in the scheme,"
Thompson said.
Named in the indictment were
Irwin Weiner of Niles, Ill.; Ron-
ald DeAngelos of Port Ritchey,
Fla.; Allen Dorfman of Deerfield,
Ill., Jack Sheetz of Dallas; Al-
bert Matheson of Detroit; An-

thony Spilotro of Las Vegas, and
Joseph Lombardo of Chicago.
THE INDICTMENT charged
that Weiner and DeAngelos ob-
tained loans from the pension
fund by saying they planned to
manufacture pails, dish sets and
tape cartridges at the Deming
industrial site.
The government lawyers said
that the defendants used the pen-
sion fund money for their per-
sonal housing, clothing and en-
tertainment in New Mexico and
that personal loans were made to
Spilotro and Lombardo. Thomp-
son said the scheme began in
1971 and continued through the
present.
THOMPSON said, "This is not
an indictment of the Teamsters
Union or the pension system. It
is an indictment of seven individ-
uals and Teamsters who paid
.K .-

their money into these funds are
the victims."
He also said that other inves-
tigations throughout the country
involving the misuse of Team-
sters pension funds would be
shifted to Chicago.
"We have reason to believe
there are other activities involv-
ing the pension funds which bear
scrutiny before a grand jury,"
he stated.
