SAN FRANCISCO - Fugitive newspaper
heiress Patricia Hearst and three radical
comrades were arrested yesterday, end-
ing one of the longest and most bizarre
searches in American history.
Hearst, first the captive and then the
zealous comrade-in-arms of the Symbion-
ese Liberation Army, was arrested with-
out resistance in a house in the city's
Bernal Heights district along with fugitive
Berkeley artist Wendy Yoshimura.
THE FBI SAID a 27-year-old house-
painter also was arrested at the house
where the two women were apprehended.
Stephen Soliah would be charged with
harboring a fugitive, agent Frank Perrone
said late yesterday.
The FBI said it had been watching the
house for two days before the arrests.
A San Francisco policeman who accom-
panied FBI agents said she opened the
door of the house herself and, despite a
vow never to be taken alive, the slender
woman surrendered without a fight.
"O.K., YOU'VE got me," she said.
About an hour earlier, police and fed-
eral agents arrested SLA members Wil-
liam and Emily Harris when they spotted
them jogging on a street a few miles
"Thank God she's all right," Hearst's
mother, Catherine, said in a barely audi-
ble voice when informed of her daughter's

Bates said the arrests "effectively put an

HEARST AND the Harrises were ar-
raigned before U.S. Magistrate Owen
Woodruff on a variety of state and federal
charges and held on $500,000 bail each

Root of all evil
It was a moment reminiscent of Scrooge gone
berserk in his miserly counting house: Could it be
that financial doom-and-gloomism has finally ren-
dered the University's leadership so hysterical as
to consider borrowing cash from Student Govern-
ment Council? Don't look now, but at yesterday's
Regents meeting, President Robben Fleming was
so delighted with SGC Treasurer Elliott Chikof-
sky's accounting of SGC monies that he declared,
"You know, I think we should think about taking
out a loan!" Regent Gerald Dunn suggested hiring
Chikofsky. Or maybe SGC should hire Fleming.
Or maybe SGC and the University should hire
Abe Beame, and . . . well never mind.

Pot and potency
Men who smoke a lot of pot, take note! A new
study of men who smoked marijuana daily under
controlled conditions has show that the drug can
interfere with production of reproductive hor-
mones, in some cases suppressing the male sex
hormone testosterone to levels that could result
in impotence or infertility. Although earlier re-
ports linked pot use to lowered testosterone levels,
the new study clearly indicates that the drug is
the actual cause of this hormonal effect and that
the effect can be reversed within two weeks of
stopping marijuana use.
The government's etiquette chief tries to be nice
and what does he get? Someone recently sent him
a telegram that read, "You aren't doing a lot for
your country by going around stuffing your face
and swilling whiskey." Henry E. Catto, the chief
of protocol, grimaced, "That's the impression peo-
ple have of my job." Catto is invited to almost
every official party of note in the capital. It's
his job to make sure Jews aren't served pork,
that dinner partners speak common languages,
and that Moslemsaren't served alcohol. He gets
Golda Meir her Chesterfield cigarettes, King Hus-
sein his late night hamburgers, and keeps the sea-
food away from the Shah of Iran.
Pat Nixon could never be as candid as First
LadyBetty Ford was on television recently, said
daughter Julie Nixon Eisenhower yesterday. The
former president's daughter said she could not
imagine her mother talking about her daughter
having an affair as Mrs. Ford did. On NBC's To-
day Show, Julie was asked whether her father
had "repented" mistakes made during the Water-
gate affair. "He's honest with himself and he
knows he's made mistakes," she answered. But
she added, "I'm not going to repent for him.
He's a great man. He can admit his mistakes."

City Republicans warned
Mayor Albert Wheeler yes-
terday that if he goes
through with a threatened
veto of a GOP-Human
Rights Party (HRP) reve-
nue sharing compromise,
he faces a recall campaign.
Ten thousand signatures
on a petition will be re-
quired to force the recall
election. If, the GOP gets
them, the recall vote would
most likely happen in Feb-
"I'M going to veto it - and
I'm not going to be intimidated
by them," Wheeler said last
night, "they might as well start
(circulating the petitions) now."
City Councilman Robert Hen-
ry (R-Third Ward) confirmed
the ultimatum saying, "My own
feeling is that we will do it if
he vetoes the compromise."
Henry said that the final deci-
sion would be left up to the
members of the city Republican

Strauch and his pet rooster Rojo
City police call fowl play
By ANN MARIE LIPINSKI
Neither Bill Strauch nor his rooster have
much to crow about these days.
The Ann Arbor police are trying to silence
the boisterous ol' bird, and Strauch is facing
a November court date for his recent foul
HARD TIMES for Strauch and his pet roost-
er began Sept. 1 when city cops received a
call from irate neighbors who were furious
with Rojo's midnight serenading.
Upon answering the call at 700 Madison
Place, police found the Mexican rooster croon-
ing away in Strauch's parked Buick. Acting
on a city ordinance which prohibits the raising
of "fowl, horses, goats or farm animals," po-
lice slapped Stauch' with a misdemeanor for
"chicken being raised in auto," and posted a
$35 bond on the citation.
Strauch paid the ticket, but kept the bird-
temporarily. He's taking his case to court No-
vember 24, at which time the law will decide
the fate of Strauch's feathered felon.
"I'M PLEADING not guilty to the charge,"
said 59-year-old Strauch, a self-proclaimed ec-
centric. Rojo was not being raised in my car.

War, stats distorted

WASHINGTON - U.S. estimates of National Liberation Front
(NLF) strength before the 1968 Tet offensive here were halved in
an effort to deceive the American public, but the result was to
fool U. S. officials instead, a former CIA analyst said yesterday.
Samuel Adams, whose job was to estimate the strength of
the South Vietnamese insurgents, accused former and present
high military and civilian intelligence officials of taking part in
what he called a deliberate deception.
IN TESTIMONY to the House of Representatives Intelligence
Committee, he said: "Although our aim was to fool the Ameri-
can press, the public and the Congress, we in intelligence suc-

Ambassador Ellsworth Bunker

The cables showed both Bun-

kept below 300,000 - despite
intelligence estimates of 600,-
000 -- to show, in Bunker's
words, that U. S. forces were
"grinding down the enemy."
Adams said he was a CIA
analyst for 10 years and its
only analyst on
Vietcong strength figures dur-
ing the two years preceeding
the Tet offensive. He said he

strength estimate in his resig-

Following up on action taken
last week, Student Government
Council (SGC) last night unani-

Rhodes formally proposed a budget reduction of up to one per
cent for all schools, colleges, and non-academic units with the ex-
ception of monies earmarked for utilities and financial aid.
RHODES said the cuts would be administered on a selective
basis, in consultation with the various deans, vice presidents, and
members of the Budget Priorities Committee. He called the re-
duction process "a time consuming and thankless process" which
will be finalized in three to four weeks.
The cut will yield an enforced savings of about $958,000, neces-
sitated by a last-minute 1.5 per cent slash in the University's
state appropriation last month.
