KATHY SOLIAH'S connectionj
remained vague. She was a one-
time friend of SLA member An-
gela Atwood, slain in the Los
Angeles shootout. Together,
they once worked as waitresses
in a popular San Francisco res-
taurant and acted in amateur
plays.
But by 1975, when the links
surfaced, Angela was dead and
Kathy had disappeared, appar-
ently into the underground. She
was last seen in public at a
June 1974 rally mourning the
death of her friend and urging
Patty and the Harrises to "keep
fighting."
But FBI agents staking out
the Hearst and Harris hideouts
reported seeing Kathy and her
sister Josephine carrying wea-
pons between the two houses. A
police bulletin warned they
should be considered dangerous.
THROUGH ALL the frustrat-
ing months of the Patty Hearst
hunt, FBI agents insisted they
were tracking every detail, no
matter how small. Apparently,
through that persistent, plod-
ding method they missed Kathy
Soliah but found her brother.
And at his rented house, they
found Patty Hearst.
It had been a long and fre-
quently baffling investigation,
with agents rushing to check out
hundreds of reported sightings,
which zigzagged across the
country.

turn, reported Patty's mood of
defiance drastically changed
when they were reunited at the
jail.
AFTER THE visit, Hearst
said: "We asked her if she
wanted to come home with us."
Patty's mother said her daugh-
ter replied: "Where else?"
But in her first court appear-
ances, Patty gave no clue whe-
ther she would embrace the
world of affluence she once
shunned or cling to the revolu-
tionary alter-ego she created -
"Tania."
Perhaps this will emerge as
the drama proceeds in the court-
room. Perhaps more will come
from a book Patty is said to
have written while she was on

THE NEWSPAPER Newsday

Harrises have described her kid-
nanning, her revolutionary con-
version and their life under-
