LOS ANGELES (A' - Kidnap victim
Patricia Hearst became kidnap suspect
Patricia Hearst yesterday, as authori-
ties charged the newspaper heiress with
joining her new-found c o m r a d e s in
abduction, assault with a deadly weapon
and robbery.
"In our opinion, Miss Hearst was act-
ing on her own free will," said Los An-
geles Dist. Atty. Joseph Busch, who filed
the state felony charges against Hearst
and two Symbionese Liberation Army
(SLA) members. "She is a suspect in a
kidnaping, not a victim.".
THE 20-YEAR-OLD heiress was drag-
ged from her home Feb. 4, and later
said she was joining the SLA terrorists
who claimed to have kidnaped her. Yes-
terday, she was accused in a multi-
count indictment along with William and
Emily Harris. Federal firearms charges
had been filed against the three earlier
by the FBI.
Hearst's father, newspaper executive
Randolph Hearst, remained at the fam-
ily home in Hillsborough, Calif. "There's
nothing to say, really," he responded
when told of the latest charges against
his daughter.
According to authorities, the Harrises
and Hearst were involved in a shooting
and bungled shoplifting attempt last
Thursday that touched off a citywide
search for SLA members in the Los An-
geles area. A police raid on Friday left
the terrorists' chief, Donald "Cinque"
DeFreeze, and five otherSLA members
dead. Authorities said they were the
nucleus of the group.

of a suburban sporting goods store with
bullets in the aftermath of the shoplift
attempt, then joined the Harrises in

. Saying "I don't recognize any ex-

Gerhard Gesell signed subpoenas direct-
ing Nixon to turn over documents for the
plumbers trial, including some top sec-
ret papers. The judge said he is de-
termined that all "relevant and mater-
ial" evidence be made available to the
five defendants charged in the break-in
of the office of Daniel Ellsberg's psychi-
atrist. Gesell's order came at the specific
