The Chronicle of Higher Education reported
Monday that the Modern Language Association,
meeting in San Francisco, concluded that there
are "crucial links" between Bob Dylan's poems
and those of Arthur Rimbaud and another nine-
teenth century symbolist, Charles Baudelaire.
Furthermore, the group of mostly young English
professors found that Dylan's attitudes toward
women have evolved from "macho posturing" in
early poems like "Girl from the North Country"
to "a more androgynous vision of himself" and "a
spirit of reconcilation between the sexes" in his
most recent works. They said that like- Rimbaud
and Baudelaire, Dylan undertook "psychic trips
mainly through the use of drugs" and "emerged
from them with changed perceptions of reality."

According to Democratic National Committee

Chairman Robert Strauss, there is "no basis in
fact" to a published report that his party will move
its convention site from New York City to Miami
Beach. The New York Times said yesterday that
some top Democrats are worried that an investiga-
tion of state party officials might embarrass the
national party and one unnamed "prominent lead-
er" had asked Miami Beach officials whether they
could handle the meeting. Strauss called the story
"purely and simply a rumor." "We are at a com-
plete loss as to how the rumor started," he added.
The convention is scheduled to bpen July 12 at
Madison Square Garden.

NEW YORK-Judith Exner claimed in an out-
line of her soon-to-be-written memoirs yesterday
that John Kennedy once told her his marriage
was in poor shape and that only Kennedy family
intervention had stopped Jackie from divorcing
The outline was given out by her agent, Scott
Meredith who is seeking bids in the millions for
her book.
EXNER'S AGENT said his agency was satis-
fied the book was accurate, with Exner providing
documentary proof, mainly personal unpublished
photographs showing her "with everybody."
Exner, who recently disclosed she had a
"close personal" relationship with Kennedy dur-
ing the early 1960s, said in the outline that their
sexual relationship began during a four-day week-
end at the Plaza Hotel in 1960.

The book also will tell about her relationships
with underworld figure Sam'"Momo" Giancana,
who often joked about her affair with Kennedy,
and singer Frank Sinatra, according to the 10-
page outline.
MEREDITH SAID the outline was written by
his office here and approved by Exner, 41, who
lives in San Diego. According to the outline,
these are some of the details that will be included
in the book:
-"During the middle part of 1961 Judith met
Jack at the White House approximately 20 times."
Evelyn Lincoln, the President's personal secre-
tary, arranged the meetings.
-On several occasions Jack Kennedy "ex-
pressed to her his doubts that his brother Ted
would act responsibily enough to fulfill what he
saw as the destiny for all of the Kennedy brothers

Officials take Patty Heart from San Mateo County Jail to a
special hearing in 'San Francisco. A federal judge called the
hearing after accusations were made against the validity of a
government psychiatric examination of Hearst.

By AP and Reuter
tricia Hearst broke her si-
lence of the four months
since her capture to testify
yesterday that a govern-
ment. psychiatrist had driv-
en her to hysteria by ask-
ing accusatory questions.
In a surprise move by
her defense, the jailed
heiress took the stand at a
special -hearing called to
c onside r defense com-
plaints about the conduct
of the psychiatrist, Dr.
Harry Kozol of Boston.
IN OPENING the hearing,
U. S. District Court Judge Oliv-
er Carter said the session was
called to consider whether the
psychiatrist had acted "in a
manner inconsistent with appro-
priate procedures for inter-
viewing t h e defendant."
Hearst's lawyers had said they
planned to make "serious
charges" about the encounter.
"Everything was like an ac-
cusation," Hearst said in a
soft but firm voice. "He didn't
care what I said or didn't say."
Clad in a blue blazer, match-
ing slacks and a turtleneck
sweater, Hearst was asked
about her Jan. 7 meeting with
Dr. Kozol, one of a number of
psychiatrists who had examined
her prior to her Jan. 26 trial on
federal bank robbery charges.
The examinations are for possi-
ble use as expert testimony
about her mental state.
SHE TESTIFIED that among
other things, Kozol had asked
if she was congratulated by
members of the terrorist Sym-
bionese Liberation Army (SLA)
after the April 1974 bank rob-
bery in which she is charged.
"I told him I didn't feel proud
about it," she answered. She
was kidnaped by the SLA two
months before and later de-
claredshe had joined her cap-
Hearst also said the doctor
had accused her of being hos-
tile during the interview and
that she had cried as the ques-
tioning continued.
"I WAS UPSET and didn't
think Kozol was a real doctor,"
she said. "He was making me
feel worse."~
"He (Kozol) said 'let's go to
Feb. 4, 1974. You got yourself

kidnaped,"' she quoted the doc-
tor as saying.
Asked what she replied,
Hearst said, "I don't remem-
"SO YOU took offense be-
cause you felt it meant it had
something to do with your own
kidnaping?" defense attorney
F. Lee Bailey asked.
Under cross - examination by
U. S. 'Atty. James Browning,
Hearst said Kozol also asked
about her contact with SLA
member Willie Wolfe for whom
she proclaimed her love after
he died in a May, 1974 shootout

with police in Los Angeles.
"ISN'T it a fact that he ask-
ed you if you 'had deep rela-
tions with Wolfe?" Browning
"It is possible," she said.
She also said that the prose-
cution psychiatrist asked ques-
tions about the skin tones of
Cinque, the black leader of her
SLA kidnapers ,and accused
her best friend, Patricia Tobin,
of being a member of the group.
She did not indicate her re-.
sponse, as for Ms. Tobin she
said, "He was accusing her of
being a member of the SLA."
She said that was untrue.

WASHINGTON (Reuter) - Labor Secretary
John Dunlop resigned from the Ford Adminis-
tration yesterday because he felt he could no
longer be effective following President Ford's
veto of a controversial construction picketing
Dunlop told reporters he did not resign spe-
cifically because of the President's veto of the
bill which he had strongly supported.
"I HAVE NOT resigned in protest of the veto
. . rather, I have resigned because since the
veto an atmosphere and a set of attitudes has
developed, and is likely to persist, that seems
to me .to preclude constructive and cooperative
policies and administration in the fields of con-

esigus poSt
cern generally to the labor department," he said.
Dunlop said he arrived at his decision to quit
- his resignation is effective February 1 -
after a series of consultations with labor, man-
agement and congressional officials.
Administration sources said the front-runner
to take over the job is William Usery, who
serves as Ford's chief labor trouble-shooter at
the White House and has strong support from
union officials.
President Ford, through his White House
spokesman, had made it clear that he wanted
Dunlop to stay on in the job when rumors that
the Labor Secretary planned to quit first sur-
faced several weeks ago.

Research into genetic transplants should continue even at
the risk of some harmful results, a University professor in-
volved with controversial biological experiments said last night.
Microbiology Professor David Jackson, one of numerous
scientists in the United States engaged in recombinant DNA stu-
dies, told an audience of some 100 persons at East Quad the
potential benefits of such research must be weighed against
possible risks before the experiments are continued.
BUT, HE ADDED, it is extremely unlikely that the results of
the investigations would be used for harm when more practical
methods already exist.
