MONDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1976 T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N (;K 7 SLA forced 'confession ' SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) -Patty C. Hearst, testifying for the first time about her days as a captive of the Symbio- nese Liberation Army, said today her tape-recorded confession to a bank robbery was made because of threats to kill her. With the jury out of the c o u r t r o o m , Miss H e a r s t , wearing a red corduroy pantsuit, testified at a special hearing in which her defense sought to suppress her taped admissions about the April 15, 1974, bank holdup for which she is on trial. The hearing was called by U.S. District Judge Oliver J. Carter to decide whether the jury of seven women and five men will hear the tape, received from the underground nine days after the bank robbery. Miss Hearst, almost immediately after being sworn in, said that the making of a tape to illustrate that she was a member of the SLA and took part in its activities, including presumably the robbery, was discussed by her captors under the direction of Donald DeFreeze. Miss Hearst was called to back the defense oath that she was forced to make the recording by her Symbionese Liberation Army kidnapers and that she read from a "script" written by Angela Atwood of the SLA. In the tape, Miss Hearst said she was a volunteer "soldier in the people's army" when she took part in the holdup, that her kidnapers did not have their guns pointed at her, and that the idea she had been brainwashed "is ridiculous to the point of being beyond belief." Two-car crash kills man A young South Side man was killed today and his companion injured seriously in an early morning two-car crash on South 10th Avenue near West 36th Street. The victim, Gonzalo Garcia, 24, of 1023 S. Meyer Ave., was U.S. Atty. James Browning completed the first phrase of his case last week, calling 19 witnesses and showing three versions of an 80-second film made from surveillance camera photos of the robbery of H i b e r n i a Bank's Sunset branch in San Francisco. The prosecution showed Miss Hearst had participated in the holdup with four of her SLA kidnapers, carried a carbine and fled with her captors after two men were wounded. The defense had not disputed those facts. Two eyewitnesses testified that the defendant cursed and threatened them during the robbery. Bailey cast doubt on the testimony of a bank guard during cross-examination, but he failed to make a major dent in the identification of Miss Hearst by a bank customer. Recalls ordered 15 --Gonzalo Garcia 16 -- W H O ? ? ? riding in a vehicle driven by Fabian N. Leyva, 24, of 377 W. La Paz St. Leyva was taken to St. Mary's Hospital, where he was listed in guarded condition. The driver of the other car, Jose M. Herrera, 24, of 4307 S. 12th Ave., was arrested by South Tucson police for allegedly driving with a suspended license. The 1 a.m. crash occurred, officers said, when one vehicle cut in front of the other as both were driving north at a high rate of speed. Herrera, who was taken to the County Jail, and another passenger were uninjured. Garcia was the 15th traffic fatality of the year in Pima County, compared to four a year ago. Reagan workers chosen Van Wyk heads Tucson drive Tucson automobile dealer John Scott Van Wyk was chosen today by state campaign chairman Nonavie Dyer of Phoenix to head the Pima County campaign of Republican presidential candidate Ronald Reagan. Van Wyk will be joined on the local campaign by cochairman J a c q u e l y n n R. Egan, a longtime party worker here, and a four-member advisory board headed by former North Vietnam prisoner of war Laird Guttersen. The advisory committee will include Maria E- Monplaisir, state chairman of the Arizona Conservative Union; Jacque- iyn Clark, of the Republican precinct committee; and Joseph C. Stephens, a Tucson motel owner and member of the county executive committee. Van Wyk, a Tucson resident since 1964, served as finance c h a i r m a n f o r E m m e t t McLoughlin's 1975 City Council campaign, and headed Jobs for a Better Tucson, an organization promoting construction of Interstate 710. Unneeded surgery issue AMA raps House report WASHINGTON (AP) - A spokesman for the American Medical Association is charging that a report on unnecessary surgery by a House subcommittee is "political propaganda" that contains errors in data. Dr. James H. Sammons, executive vice president of the AMA, wrote to Rep. John E. Moss, D-Calif., "We must conclude that the report submitted to you by the staff is nothing more nor less than a dishonest piece of political propaganda." Moss is chairman of a House subcomittee which issued a report Jan. 24 saying that approximately 2.4 million unnecessary surgeries were performed in this country in 1974 alone. The subcommittee estimated this cost the public about $3.9 billion and led to 11,900 deaths. In a letter dated Feb. 6 and released by the AMA yesterday, Sammons wrote Moss, "The report, is unsound in concept, unscientific in meth- od, contains errors in data and information, distorts testimony presented to the subcommittee and bases its main conclusions on an incomplete a n d i m p r o p e r l y d e f i n e d study." byGM DETROIT (UPI) -- General Motors Corp. today said it was recalling about 3,000 current model cars and 575 CMC motor homes because of defects involving transmissions and steering control. A GM spokesman said drivers may not be able to select the correct gear position because of an improperly installed stop on the transmission linkage of some Buick Regal, Century, LeSabre and Electra models and on some Oldsmobile Cutlass models. A driver thinking the car has been shifted into neutral may actually be in the drive position, possibly causing the car to lurch unexpectedly, GM said. The GMC motor homes are being recalled because a retaining nut may be missing from the intermediate steering shaft. This could cause the steering shaft to separate, resulting in a loss of steering control, GM said. There have been no reported accidents or injuries related to either defect, GM said. Necessary repairs will be made at no cost to owners. Selling a business? That's our business. We have assisted in the sale of over 1 200 Businesses.
