a sluggish opponent and move into last night's singles final

4-3, but then Nastase took the next two games to win the match.

By The Associated Press
NEW YORK - Bill Walton,
the outspoken basketball player,
pledged his support yesterday
to activists Jack and Micki
Scott in their policy of "total
non-collaboration" with govern-
ment investigators.
"I'mhere as a friend of these
people,' Walton, the 6-foot-11
center of the Poardand Trail
Blazers of the National Basket-
ball Association, said at a news
conference.
The news conference w as
called by the Scotts to discuss
their decision not to cooperate
with a federal grard jury in
Harrisburg, Pa., concerning the
disappearance of Patricia
Hearst.
"I want you all to realize the
situation these people are fac-
ing," Walton said. "It's obvious
to me that these folks have been
lied to over a major portion of
their lives, and so have you.
"Look at your dress, the way
you live, the way you deal with

other people. So much of it is
a lie - one contradiction after
another."
WALTON, bearded, his should-
er-length red hair parted down
the middle, was dressed in a
khaki shirt, faded green shorts
and sandals, a marked contrast
to the suits. and ties of the as-
sembled newsmen.
He sat on a dais alongside the
Scotts and Jack's parents, John
and Louise Scott, and a number
of attorneys, including William
Kunstler.
The elder Scotts told of being
offered as much as $200,000if
their son could he persuaded to
cooperate with the Federal
Bureau of Investigation in its
search for Miss Hearst.-
THE FBI and the grand jury
are investigating reports t h a t
Miss Hearst stayed last fall at
a South Canaan, Pa., farmhouse
reportedly rented by Scott. Wal-
ton was questioned by the FBI

last March about Miss Hearst
and the farmhouse.
Walton was one of same 150
signees of a statement issued
yesterday in support of t he
Scotts. It expressed outrage at
"the government's relentless
harassment of the Scotts, their
family and friends. These at-
tacks are but another example
of the government's corrupt use
of power .-.-
"We support the Scotts in
° their principled position of total
non-collaboration with this grand
jury and all similar government
investigations as the only 2.p-
propriate response."
WALTON was among te first
speakers to address the news
conference. Afterwards he left
his chair and sat on the floor
by the side of the dais, his back
to the wall. He listened atten-
tively to the speakers and the
questions which followed, occa-
sionally laughing at a remark
or a question he considered na-
ive.
