Listo f kidnap vitis found

CHOWCHILLA, Calif. (A .-
A scrawled list of the names
of 26 kidnaped children and a
school bus driver was found
when officers searched the
home of one suspect in the
case, a published report said
The Redwood City Tribune
quoted sources as saying the
list, written on a paper bag,
named the children in the order
in which they were herded one
by one from vans into their
makeshift underground prison
at a rock quarry.
AFTER THE kidnap victims
escaped, they told authorities
that their abductors wrote down
their names as they were ush-
ered into the buried moving
The Tribune said the list was
found at the home of Frederick

Woods, 24, one of three men
jailed in connection with the
case. His family's 80-acre estate
on the San Francisco Peninsula
was searched July 21, six days
after the kidnaping.
The newspaper's report was
confirmed to The Associated
Press by an independent source
close to the investigation, but
the source gave no further de-
M E A N W H I L E, a
sheriff investigating the case
said Friday he hopes to learn
a motive for the crime by draw-
ing a "psychological profile" of
Woods and two other young sus-
pects, including "their habits"
and "their genes."
Madera County Sheriff Ed
Bates added that although the
three men are behind bars, au-,

thorities still are pursuing leads
that others may have helped in
the mass abduction. He said at
least two of the children men-
tioned a fourth kidnaper.
"I don't know at this stage
that there's any hard evidence
that a fourth person was in-
volved," he said. "It's possi-
ble, but I don't know of any
hard evidence."
ALAMEDA County Asst. Dist.
Atty. John Meehan agreed that
there is "still a lot of investiga-
tion needed to pull information
together. We have no firm proof
that others were involved, but
we're working on it."
A manhunt for the three men
wanted in the kidnaping ended
Thursday with Woods' arrest
in Vancouver, Canada, and the
arrest earlier in the day of

ASKED ABOUT Thursday's
arrests, Bates said, "Yeah, I'm
happy. It's a relief."
But Bates said be still was
bothered by the question of
why the three accused men al-
legedly kidnaned the busload
of children from this quiet
farming town and sealed them
in a moving van buried in a
rock quarry 95 miles away. The
victims pried their way out af-
ter 17 hours.
"I want to draw a osvcholog-
ical profile of the subjects -
their habits, their genes, their
educations, their backgrounds
- every known thing that could
possibly give us a clue to their
motivation," said Bates. "Were

they trying to prove to their
parents they didn't need mon-
ey? Was there a deeper psy-
chological need? What are their

Held, a 35-year FBI veteran
who was head of the Chicago
office at the time of his ap-
pointment as associate director,
said he took the new position
"because I truly believe that
I can do a good job for the

Minority parties await
decision on ballot bill
Michigan minority parties are anxiously awaiting a court
decision Monday that will determine the constitutionality of a
bill requiring minority parties to garner a certain percentage of
votes in Tuesday's primary in order to earn a spot on the Novem-
ber ballot.
According to Libertarian and U.S. Labor Party spokesmen,
judges reviewing the joint suit filed by the two parties in con-
junction with an American Civil Liberties Union suit, have made
a verbal commitment to hand down a decision before the August 3
THE BILL, CALLED the Minority Party bill-Michigan law
1323-was passed last May 8. Since its passage, supporters of the
Libertarian, U.S. Labor, Communist Labor, Socialist Worker, and
Socialist Labor parties have decried its constitutionality, and
claimed it was passed only to serve the purposes of the two major
parties, particularly the Democrats.
The bill requires minority parties to amass three tenths of
one per cent of the total votes cast in the primary for a spot on
the November ballot. Proponents of the bill claim it was initiated
because there was not sufficient room on the ballot to accom-
modate the number of parties attempting to secure a spot.
Libertarian state Chairman James Hudler conceded that this
was once the case, but no longer.
"THERE IS ONLY room for nine parties on the machine
ballot," said Hudler, "and at the time the bill was introduced, 14
parties were trying to get on the ballot."
However, only nine parties now have submitted enough peti-
tions to qualify for the ballot, "so this bill isn't really even
necessary anymore," he says.
