If-calls for shareholders of Steak and Ale to receive 1.4 million shares of Pillsbury common stock, with a current market value of $100 million. MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) -- Executives of the Pillsbury Co. and Steak and Ale Restau- rants of America, Inc., have announced an agreement in principle to merge. t The agreement announced Tuesday by Pillsbury Chair- man William H. Spoor and Norman Brinker, Steak and Ale SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Members of the Symbionese Liberation Army spent much of their 19 months underground attempting to compile a written explanation of their philosophy, according to a source close to the investigation. The source said investigators have not yet made their way through the mountain of docu- ments confiscated from the apartment where Bill and Em- ily Harris were living when they were arrested Sept. 18. Patricia Hearst, who was kidnaped by the SLA on Feb. 4, 1974, and later said she had joined the terrorist organ- ization, was arrested the same day in another apartment along with Wendy Yoshimura, wanted on federal explosives charges. The SLA material which was carted from the Harris apart- ment by the FBI on Friday in- cludes "some personal stuff," but there is no way to deter- mine who wrote any of it, the source said. There are no signatures on any of the pages and they are not filed in any identifiable or- der, the source said. There is no elaboration in the documents about the kidnaping of Miss Hearst, the source said. "There is nothing in there that says, 'I put on a wig and black makeup and kidnaped her.'" Witnesses saidtwo black men and a woman were the abduc- tors. The Harrises, awaiting trial in Los Angeles on state assault and kidnaping charges, are un- der investigation in connection with the abduction, which re- mains a crime with which no one has been charged. There were these develop- ments in the case Monday: --A hearing scheduled for to- day on Miss Hearst's com- petence to take the witness stand for cross-examination in a bail hearing on federal bank robbery charges was postponed indefinitely. --Miss Hearst's original at- torney, Terence Hallinan, re- signed from the defense team but declined to comment on the reason. --Miss Yoshimura's case was postponed in Alameda County Superior Court in Oakland after her attorney said he wanted more time to examine the 3- year-old charges against her. --A gunman attempting to rob a Greenwich Village bank branch in New York City took 10 hostages and demanded the release.of Miss Hearst, Miss Yoshimura and the Harrises in return for the hostages' free- dom. He later said the demand "just popped into my head" and that he was not connected with Junction Hwy. 210 And 59 South Fergus Falls, Minnesota \ PHARMACIES MANAGER'S OVERSTOCK WE'RE REDUCING OUR INVENTORY!

Psychiatrists who have been examining Miss Hearst and were scheduled to report to the court today on results of their tests said Monday they are not finished with their work. The hearing on whether Miss Hearst is competent to be cross- examined on the affidavit she filed claiming she was tortured and brainwashed by the SLA was postponed indefinitely until the psychiatric examinations are completed. Hallinan, 38, a radical attor- ney who had represented Miss Hearst since her arrest, an- nounced his resignation from the case, but another defense attorney, Albert Johnson, de- nied rumors that the resigna- tion came because of "friction" on the defense team. Attorney James Martin Mac- Innis resigned last week, leaving Boston trial lawyer F. Lee Bailey as head of the team that now includes Johnson, John Knutson and E. John Kfeines.

Journal Wed,, Ocl. 8,1975 3 Elk reserve plan urged OKLF.r:, Minn. (AP)^State Hep. John Corbid, DFIXlklee, Tuesday asked the Department of Natural Resources to trap the remaining elk in Minnesota and told them for placement in the new Minnesota Zoological Gardens under construction in Dakota County. "lliave made this proposal in an attempt to arrive al a solu- tion to a volatile .situation that has developed in northwestern Minnesota," Corbid said. "Since the slate has the policy of not reimbursing farmers for crop loss due to wildlife dam- age, 1 believe moving the elk to the new zoo is the best and least expensive answer and will insure the survival of the elk for future generations," he said. Corbid said the cost of creat- ing a reserve for the elk seems prohibitive," but said the al- ternative will be tried if support for inclusion of the elk in the new zoo does not develop. The volatile situation Corbid referred to has developed since Gordon Foss, Grygla, Minn., was charged with killing five elk that had damaged his crops over a period of years. Although elk are protected by state law, only 15 or 16 are left in Minnesota, said Milo Casey, DN'R fish and wildlife director. 2-to-the-pack'C or 'D' Eveready batteries PACKS (6 Batteries) LIMIT* BATTERIES!
