(UPI) — The Hearst Castle at San Simeon, closed last week because of a telephone threat made against the family of Patricia Hearst, is reopening to public tours. State Parks and Recreation Director Herbert Rhodes Monday said' his agency decided to reopen the popular stateoperated tourist attraction today after consulting with police. The castle on the central California coast was closed Friday as a safety measure following the telephone threat. The call came after the televising of an interview of Miss Hearst at the family compound adjacent to the castle. Rhodes said Miss Hearst, freed from prison recently on bail while appealing her bank robbery conviction and awaiting another robbery trial in Los Angeles, was not at the castle and has not been staying there. i-In the interview, • Miss., Hearst said she felt her former Symbionese .Liberation Army associates "got exactly what they deserved" when six of them were killed in a May 1974 Shootout with Los Angeles police. The unidentified male caller threatened •., to.., have, snipers start shooting .the Hearst family and bodyguards unless Miss Hearst was surrendered to a group he identified as the "United Front." Carter Wants Critics To Be Patient PLAINS, Ga. (UPI) Jimmy Carter wants his critics to hold off-until he has completed his cabinet choices before judging whether he has kept his promises. With 12 major appointments behind him and (our left to go, the President-elect said Monday it's too soon to determine whether he's keeping his commitment to put a substantial proportion of women and minorities in top level government jobs. So far, Carter has named one black, Rep. Andrew Young, as U.N. ambassador, and one woman, Dr. Juanita Kreps as commerce secretary, to cabinet level posts. "I have a number of cabinet members to appoint in the future, and I would ask that you wait until the cabinet is appointed before you make a judgment on whether I have or have not kept my promise to you," he said. Carter scheduled another news conference Tuesday (2 p.m. EST) to announce more appointments. Still pending at the top level were four cabinet secretaries — labor, defense, housing and urban development, and health, education and welfare — which he plans to select by Christmas. Though women and blacks have undoubtedly faced discrimination in vying for major government jobs in previous years, Carter said, he hasn't softened his standards to make up for the past. "I have tried in every instance to get the best qualified person to serve, in the cabinet post, not just someone who might be satisfactory," he said, "And I've applied the same rigid standards to minority groups and women as I have to white men." Meanwhile, in an interview on NBC-TV, Dr. Kreps said she thought the number of qualified women is "quite large" but that the criteria are being set by men and "it's likely the men rate higher on that scale." ' .... "I think we're only beginning to see some progress and much too slow in appointing women," she said. "We have to look harder." IHAVEALOT OFWASHERFOR WOMEN WITH ALOTOFWASH!

(UPI) — Although prosecutors say they" are aware of nothing which could challenge their case that millionaire T. Cullen Davis murdered his stepdaughter and estnnged wife's lover, Davis' attorney says he can prove someone else committed the slayings. Richard "Race Horse" Haynes said Monday he believed drugs were involved in the August slayings of Andrea Wilborn, 12, and former TCU basketball player Stan Farr. "I don't know what the story is yet," Haynes said. "But a burglar may have been trying to get at the drugs or it may have been a double-cross on a drug deal." Haynes said on the evening of Aug. 2, when the slayings occurred, Davis was not at the mansion where his estranged wife Priscilla, Miss Wilborn and Farr lived. Davis and his wife were separated and involved in a stormy divorce action. Prosecutors contend Davis entered the mansion dressed in black and wearing a black wig, shot Miss Wilborn and Farr and wounded Mrs. Davis and another person. Haynes, however, maintained the man in black was a burglar. Haynes speculated there were drugs in the mansion and a burglar was trying to steal them. He also speculated the burglar may have been trying to recover drugs he had sold earlier, Haynes said at a later time he would be able to establish the identity of the assailant, and also would be able to prove there were drugs at the mansion. Assistant Tarrant County District Attorney Joe Shannon disputed Haynes' theory, saying no drugs were found in the police search of the mansion. He said all the evidence in the case had been made available to the defense. "We have shown them every piece of physical evidence," Shannon said. "And among them then; was no cash or dope." District Judge Tom Cave said he would hear a defense motion for a change of venue Dec. 2B. More than 100 motions have been filed in the case, including several requesting that charges be dismissed. Attorneys argued Monday in prclrlnl hearings the indict ments against Davis should bo dropped because the grand jury which handed down tin- indictments was not composed of an accurate cross section ol the community. Davis is lu'iiiK hold' in the Tarrant County Jail without bond on the capital murder charges. Escaped Inmate Captured HUTCHINSON (HNS) -'- A fall through a suspended ceiling of a rest room helped bring an ciul to a 12 -hour flight to freedom for a Kansas Slate Industrial Reformatory Inmate.
