Hinckley's defense to
hinge on psychiatric tests

WASHINGTON (UPI)-John Hin-
ckley, the stocky college dropout and
drifter charged with trying to kill
President Reagan, was held without
bond today at the Quantico Marine
Base, awaiting psychiatric tests that
may be the key to his defense.
John "Jack" Hinckley Jr., 25, the son
of a wealthy Evergreen, Colo. oilman,
was charged with attempting to
assassinate a president and assaulting
a federal agent with a pistol.
HINCKLEY outlined his plans for the
assassination in a letter to starlet Jodie
Foster, sources said yesterday.
The sources said Hinckley apparently
was upset overmagslight by
Reagan-real or imagined-of Miss
Foster, 18, who is best known for her
role as a prostitute in the movie, "Taxi
Driver."
The film included a scene in which
lead actor Robert DeNiro went heavily
armed to a political rally where a

blow things up."

presidential candidate was to speak,
but secret service agents kept him too
far away.
INVESTIGATIVE sources said Hin-i
ckley was infatuated with Miss Foster,
now a freshman at Yale University, and
was out to prove his love-and the in-
fatuation grew into an obsession.
In "Taxi Driver," DeNiro told Miss
Foster, "If you don't love me, I'm going
to kill the president."
ACCORDING TO the Cable News
Network in Atlanta, Hinckley wrote
Miss Foster and said: "If you don't love
me, I'm going to kill the president."
Hinckley attended Texas Tech
University in Lubbock on and off for
seven years after graduating from
Highland Park High School in Dallas'
most exclusive suburb.
People who knew him or were friends
of his well-to-do parents described a
man rapidly deteriorating during his
aimless college years.
MARK SWAFFORD, now a lan-
dscape contractor in Amarillo,
managed the Westernaire Apartments
where Hinckley lived in Lubbock from
January 1979 until the end of thb spring
semester. He remembered the youth
with no affection.
"A few weeks after he moved in, I
had to go in and try to clean out a stop-
ped-up drain," Swafford said. "He just
sat there the whole time, staring at the
TV. That TV and a guitar were the only
personal things he seemed to have."
Swafford said Hinckley kept no
cooking utensils, no personal items on

his dresser, and packed everything he
owned in a duffle bag when he moved
out. He said the only clean spot in the
apartment was the stove, simply
because it was never used.
"EVERYWHERE there were bags
from hamburger joints and cartons of
ice cream," Swafford said. "Dozens of
cartons of ice cream and junk food
bags. The place was a real trash heap.
"I only saw him with another human
being one time," Swafford said. "He
and another guy were going up to his
apartment. They weren't saying
anything. I'd say something to him, but
he'd never say anything back. He
alwasy hit me as kind of strange. As far
as I could tell, the guy didn't have a
dime to him."

NEW YORK (UPI) - Sen. Harrison
Williams (D-N.J.) promised to use his
influence with then-President Carter to
obtain government contracts for a'
titanium mine of which he was a secret
part-owner, an Abscam prosecutor
charged yesterday.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Edward Mc-
Donald made the charge in an opening
statement at Williams' bribery-
conspiracy trial in U.S. District Court.
An attorney for Williams, the only
senator indicted in the FBI's two-year
Abscam probe of political corruption,
called the government case "a fraud, a
sham, and a farce."
McDonald said Williams, "with great
pleasure, promised to talk to the
president of the United States about it
(the mine) in a personal way."
He said Williams made the promise
in a 1979 meeting with an FBI agent
posing as an Arab Sheikwho
pledged to invest $100 million in the
mining venture.
Williams, 61, is charged with using
his position as a senator to obtain
governmer contracts for a titanium
mine and processing facility in which

he held a concealed 18 percent interest.
Titanium is a lightweight metal used
in the manufacture of missiles, aircraft
and submarines.
Williams also is charged with
promising to use his influence to assist
the bogus sheik to obtain permanent
residency in the United States.
"I will do everything in my power to
advance your permanancy," McDonald
quoted Williams as saying to the sheik
in another meeting, Jan. 15, 1980.
