THURSDAY, F E B R U A R Y 12, 1976 rulini T U C S O N D A I L Y C I T I Z E N SAN FRANCISCO (AP) _ The jury in Patricia Hearst's trial will hear the taped voice of Miss Hearst boast that she took part in a bank robbery and then probably hear her -in person -- repeat her dramatic story of being forced ir.'o the holdup. Miss Hearst's defense lost a battle yesterday to prevent the playing of a taped commu- nique in which the newspaper heiress, using her underground name "Tariia," said she willingly joined her terrorist kidnapers in the April 15, 1974, robbery with which she is charged. U.S. District Court Judge Oliver J. Carter ruled that Miss Hearst's taped statement was made "voluntarily" and that the prosecutor could use the tape and the testimony of a Los Angeles teen-ager who said that Miss Hearst and two others held him hostage in May 1974. Carter's ruling all but assured that the defendant will take the stand in her own defense and recount for the jury the story she has told out of its presence in the past two days, her version of life with her Symbionese Liberation Army kidnapers. Meanwhile, in Los Angeles the judge in the trial of Sym- bionese Liberation A r m y members William and Emily Harris has delayed the case another month, and a defense attorney says a joint trial with Miss Hearst "is looking probable." Superior Court Judge Mark Brandler continued to March 15 the Harrises' (rial on 11 Stevenson in Cairo CAIRO (DPI) -- Sen. Adlai Stevenson arrived last night for a three-day visit during which he will meet Foreign Minister Ismail Fahmi and House Speaker Sayed Marei, the Middle East News Agency said. felony counts of kidnap, robbery and assault. The motion was granted yesterday to allow the presentation of several defense motions. Court-appointed defense counsel Leonard Weinglass asked if he thought his clients would be tried with Miss Hearst, said, "We're definitely heading toward that. It's looking more probable." The prosecution also seems · to be agreeable to a joint trial with Miss Hearst. Deputy Dist. Atty. Samuel Mayerson told Brandler, "We are quite amenable to making this trial available to a joint proceeding with Miss Hearst." A f t e r the ruling in the Hearst robbery trial to allow the tape into evidence, the jury was brought into the courtroom and U.S. Atty. James L. Browning Jr. called two witnesses to repeat the testimony that previously had been withheld from the sequestered jurors. Anthony Shephard, a clerk at a sporting goods store in central Los Angeles, said he caught SLA members William and Emily Harris shoplifting and scuffled with them on the sidewalk. Miss Hearst has admitted breaking up the fight by peppering the store with submachine gun fire from a van parked across a busy four- lane street from the store, allowing the Harrises to flee. Thomas Dean Matthews, a 19-year-old college student, testified that the Harrises and Miss Hearst took him hostage and used his van as part of their getaway. Smiling frequently and brushing hair from his eyes, the casually clad youth told of his night-long ride through the streets of Los Angeles with benevolent captors. He admitted a fondness for the Harrises and Miss Hearst "because they were all so nice." "You considered yourself fortunate to be there?" asked chief defense attorney F. Lee Bailey. "Yes," replied Matthews. He said they offered him food and Harris tried to pay him for the gasoline they used. "In fact, you thought they were some of ihe nicest people you ever met?" asked Bailey, with a broad smile and erupting ^VALENTINE M-, HIS BLACK STAR RING. 10K YELLOW § 95 l!£- ^ HELZBERO- . - BUILDING MATERIALS CENTER 1310S.Wilmot OPEN: Won. thru Fri. 7:30 AM to 5 PM.

Y_ r CLAIMS STUDIES SHOW 50% DAMAGE ON HAUL-IT-YOURSELVES With most "Warehouse showroom" firms there is one major drawback -- damage to goods by consumers who "take-wHh" and set-up themselves. Studies indicate that 50 per cent of purchases under the "take-wrth" plan end up with damaged merchandise, requiring extra work by the retailer. Or, if "take-wHh" goods have been damaged, often the customer doesn't want to lug H all the way back -- and is left with a bad taste in her mouth!
