Potty had no identity, doctor says SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Patricia Hears! was a confused young woman with "a variety of behaviors" and virtually no identity of her own in the weeks after her arrest, says a court- appointed psychiatrist. Dr. I,. J. West, a professor of psychiatry and an expert on prisoner of war torture, spent the entire day Tuesday on the witness stand at Miss Hearst's trial for bank robbery. Asst. U.S. Ally. David Bancroft, who repeatedly questioned West's interpretations of Mi:s Hearst's mental state, planned to continue his cross- examination today. During direct questioning by defense counsel F. Lee Bailey, West portrayed Miss Hearst as a "shattered" survivor of a 19-month ordeal in the terrorist underground. West said Tuesday that Miss Hearst, who had been given the name "Tania" by her Symbionese Liberation Army captors after she proclaimed her allegiance to the terrorist band and took part in the bank robbery, became "Pearl" for much of her time in the underground. Miss Hearst testified earlier that SLA member Emily Harris gave her the wait Weld residents were waiting in line as -long as (wo hours Tuesday to buy renewal tabs for their vehicle license plates. While employes in the Weld Clerk and Recorder's O f f i c e are working as fast as possible to process the renewals, a spokesman for the office said residents are much later this year than usual in getting plates renewed -possibly because there arc no new plates on the streets to remind them. Deadline is midnight Sunday, but the clerk's office closes at 4 p.m. Friday. Lines were unnecessary for most residents, since moil-in renewals were accepted this year. Chance of delayed delivery makes t h a t roule risky now, clerk's office spokesman said. Office hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. (Tribune photo by Ron Stewart) Bond says Lamm's UNC request short By RON STKWAKT Tribune Staff Writer Recommendation of Gov. Richard \amrn Monday for a $19.0 million 1976-77 appropriation for the University of Northern Colorado was greeted with mixed emotions Wednesday by UNC President Dr. Richard Bond. While' Bond said the governor's recommendation seems to indicate his recognition of some of UNC's problems, it doesn't recognize other concerns Bond has f6r UNC funding. First off. Lamm's recommendation is $4.3 million less than UNC's request for $2.1.9 million. Bond said the request was an honest amount based on what it would take io operate UNC effectively. Lamm's r e c o m m e n d a t i o n to the Legislature is not the final word. The General Assembly makes the final appropriation in its "long bill," usually passed near the end of the session and usually closely conforming to recommendations of the Joint Budget Committee. S p e c i f i c a l l y , ' Bond said L a m m ' s recommendation would allow only a three to four per cent increase in salaries for UNC faculty - far below the 18 per cent requested hike, which Bond said is needed to "catch up" UNC faculty Inside the Tribune (44 pages, 2 sections) Abby 2(J Hospital f Agri-news 28 Markets 35 Classified .19-44 Obituaries r Comics 3" SIT'S ;1M8 Crossword 30 Theater 29 Editorial 4 TV log 30 Heloise 21 Weather f, Horoscope 11 W r n s p g s . 19-21 Today's press run: i9,7S(l If you have not received your Tribune by 6:30 p.m.. call 3520211. salaries with other comparable in-state and out-of-slate institutions. And, UNC would continue to suffer for lack of supplies and travel if I«imm's recommendation were adopted, Bond said. For "general operations"--to purchase badly needed supplies -- UNC asked for $855,115. Lamm has recommended $641,911, Bond said. Third concern is w i t h Lamm's suggestion for capital outlay, Bond said. An economic pinch last year forced UNC to reduce its budget by $252,238, and capital outlay expenditures sufferd most, Bond said. For 1976-77, UNC requested $576,521; Lamm recommended $325,760. Capital outlay is the fund for purchasing badly needed science and industrial arts equipment, Bond said. Some new buildings, UNC's Ross Hall of Science, for example, were supposed to have been equipped in years following their completion. Bond said, but weren't, creating need now for equipment purchases. And, Bond said Lamm recommended lhal t u i t i o n be lied lo credit hours, a change which would mean a sizeable increase. Under Lamm's proposal, according to Bond, tuition for an out-of-stale student could jump from $1,395 this year for three quarlers to $1,657 in 1977-78. I n - s t a t e s t u d e n t s under Lamm's proposal also v/ould pay more than UNC officials expected, Bond said. With luition now at $351 for Ihree quarters, Lamm's system would raise it lo $397 for Ihrce quarters. Since it is based on number of credit hours, Lamm's proposal also would force students lo choose the number of hours t a k e n on economic r a t h e r t h a n educational considerations. Bond said. Another concern, Bond said, it that I^amm's budget fails to recognize UNC's need of about $22,000 for rentals. While the amount is small, Bond said it is significant since Lamm's budget is "tight." name "Pearl" after the May 17, 1974, Shootout in which six SLA members died in Los Angeles. West said the heiress had made a "remarkable improvement" in her condition in the past few months but still showed signs of anxiety and the fear for her life that characterized much of her own testimony. West was one of three psychiatrists appointed by U.S. District Court Judge Oliver J. Carter last fall to help determine whether Miss Hearst was competent to stand trial. He spent a total of 23 hours examining the 22-year-old defendant and was called as a witness for the defense. The other two experts who examined her on behalf of the court have not testified at the trial. Bancroft attempted Tuesday to discredit West's sympathetic picture of Miss Hearst and elicited the fact the psychiatrist had written the Hearst family months before he ever met the defendant. West defended his letter to Randolph and Catherine Hearst as "one parent to another," written sometime while Miss Hearst was sought as a fugitive. "I think I expressed some sympathy and told them they should not despair of their daughter's condition because if she were ever returned to them alive she might be in a condition to be helped and possibly defended," he said. West and the judge confirmed lhal the court was aware of the letter prior lo West's appointment by Carter lo the case. The prosecution contends Miss Hearst willingly joined her SLA kidnapers, helped them rob a bank and remained w i t h them on her own volition unlil her capture last Sept. l«. Miss Hearst contends she cooperated w i t h her kidnapers and desperately wanted them lo believe she had joined their terrorist ranks because she fell it was her only means of survival. Any sign of betrayal or lack of commitment, stie said, would mean dcalh. West said she "lived for (he moment as a sort of psychological armor" to blot out the pain of being a hostage of the SLA and a f u g i t i v e of the law.. The defendant has testified that she was raped by now dead SLA members Donald "Cinque" DeFreeze and William Wolfe Iwice in the weeks after her Feb. 4, 1974, kidnaping. Original Script Written by Horace Greeley in 1871 VOL. 68, NO. 107 GREELEY, COLORADO80631 A N D T H E G R E E L E Y REPUBLICAN Weekly Tribune Established 1870 WEDNESDAY, F E B R U A R Y 25,1976 Ford edges Reagan in N. H. vote CONCORD, N.H. ( A P ) - President Ford edged out Ronald Reagan in New Hampshire's leadoff primary, and Jimmy Carler strengthened his claim to fronlrunncr status with a comfortable triumph in the crowded Democratic field. With only partial returns from one precinct missing in what had been a night-long seesaw race, Ford had 54,786 or 51 per cent to Reagan's 53,544 or 49 per cunt. Former Georgia Gov. Carler defeated f o u r major candidates on Tuesday's Democratic ballot. His percentage total dropped one point to 29 per cent in late returns today. Arizona Rep. Morris K. Udall was second w i t h 24 |x;r cent and Indiana Sen. Birch Hayh was third with 1C per cent. Ford said today his victory in the New Hampshire primary is "a great springboard" to the Republican n o m i n a t i o n and to victory in the November presidential election. "If we win a couple more, and I think we will, we'll be ready for the finals, and I think we'll win there, too," Ford told a meeting of his senior staff at the White House. W h i t e House Press Secretary Ron Nessen said New Hampshire was Reagan's "best state in the North. He went all out in campaigning ... He gave it his best shut and couldn't win it." But a tired Reagan told a post- midnight news conference before the final results were in that "I feel what's happened tonighl is a victory." He claimed at least a moral victory compared with his stated pre-eleclion goal of 40 per cent of the vote. . . Leaving his hotel in Concord this morning, Reagan was asked whether he was still claiming victory over President Ford. "I certainly am," he said. "No one has ever done tliis to an incumbent. I think it's great and we'll go on from here." Presidential adviser Rogers Morton, -a former Ford cabinet member, scoffed at claims that Reagan's 49 per cent showing was actually a victory. "There seems to be a lot of rhetoric about the advantages of coming in second in this primary ... I heard the Democratic candidates say they achieved all their goals when they ran second and third," Morton said on NBC's "Today" show. "This is a new politics. I've always felt that it was belter to win." Carter, who like Reagan waged a campaign against the Washington establishment, flashed a victory sign to cheering supporters in a Manchester hotel ballroom and declared he would win the Democratic nomination on the first ballot. Appearing on the "Today" show. Carter said today that he was satisfied with the outcome in New Hampshire. "We were hoping to come in first or second. 1 thought WP would for the last month or two. 0 Five named to consider Weld legal advertising Commissioners lay over bids for consideration Weld County Commissioners Monday considered bids on leasing the recently arnmrcri Davis Ranch nn Rth SlrM Rnad east of Greeley.
