Fiery during Hy Kick Dn Krow SAN KIIAN'CISCO ( U J ' I ) - J,, a sp |(, second, the seething anger between llie prosecution and defense in the I'alricia Hearst (rial erupted.

The prosecution brought up a c-mle il said Miss Hearst shared w i t h Symhionese Liberation Army members whom she claims forced her to rob llie bank. "Is it (he kind Captain Midnight might have used?" defense lawyer Albert Johnson needled a prosecution witness. Shortly afterward, annoyed by a defense common! during his questioning", prosecutor James L. Browning Jr. snapped: "May I be allowed lo try this case in my own way wilhoul interruptions every five seconds from the defense?" Browning slipped in a reminder to the jury that .Miss Hearst had taken the 5th Amendment on certain questions, mid (he barely- hidden hostility between Ihc two sides could be felt in the court. Finally, in the afternoon, (lie fury broke out into the open. Defense attorney F. I.ce Bailey was questioning a prosecution psychiatric witness, Dr. Joel Kort. who has appeared in the cases of Charles Manson. Timothy Lcary and Lenny Bruce. .Suddenly, Bailey wheeled around and said: "Do you know Mr. and Mrs. Hearst (the anger erupts Hearst trial The Idaho Free Press The News-Tribune, Saturday, March*, 197«--A-ll Obituaries parents) sitting here in the front heiress- row?" "Certainly," said Fort. "Did you go to them, Dr. Fort, and try lo fix this case behind my back?" A gasp went through Ihc courtroom. Browning jumped up and said: "Counsel belter lie prepared to back up that charge, your honor." Bailey snapped: "Counsel is eminently prepared lo back il up." He (limed to Fort and pressed on: "Did you sir?" "I certainly did not." said the doctor. For! said fie had merely spoken to (he Hearsts of the desirability lo try to avoid the "agony" of a public trial if il were possible because their daughter's best interests might lie lost in the legal conflict. He said the lawyers in the case knew he was going lo raise Ihe point. He also said he suggested In the family (hat they call anolher attorney with whom he once consulted on a case. .Soon, Bailey and Fort were accusing each oilier of lying. "Now, gentlemen," said Federal Judge Oliver J. Carter, "this is not the case to start calling each other liars, and that's just what you are doing. Now slop it." Bailey asked Fort: "Did you tell her ( M r s . Hearst I t h a t Ihc maximum, since she was a kidnap v i c t i m , would be six months probation?" Fort: "I did not, and there's no way I could have told her (hat because I didn't know That's a matter solely for a federal judge lo decide." On Monday, Forl will be on the stand again as the trial goes into its seventh week and the fierceness of Ihe battle intensifies with victory or defeal close at hand.

LITTLE ROCK I U P I ) - R e p Wilbur D. Mills, U-Ark, has announced the end of his 38-year political career - a career of power and prestige, and of scandal and alcoholism. Mills, facing a difficult reelection in the 2nd Congressional District, said Friday he would not seek re-election lo a 20lh term because he no longer had (he energy he once had when chairman of the House Ways ,and. Means Committee. :' '"I'atii not funning away from fffigfit,'" said'MillsTwh'o will b'e ^67iivMa'y. "Forl feel t h a t 1 have won Ihe greatest battle of my life in recognizing thai [ was assailed by the disease ol alcoholism and in accepting (he way of life (hat brought about my recovery from il." He said he had not touched alcohol in more than a year. "This decision was nol based on any fear that I cannot do the job or (hat I cannot maintain my sobriety," Mills said. "I am convinced beyond any doubt lhal I could do both. "I wan! lo emphasize t h a i this decision has nolhing to do with anything t h a t has occurred in my life in the pasl Iwo years." Evenls of (he pasl two years spilled the veteran congressman Rep. Wilbur Mills from (he heights of Washington power to the depths of being Ihc hull of cocktail parly jokes. Mills, for 16 years considered Ihe tax wizard of Ihe nation through his powerful committee chairmanship, overnight lost his reputation as a conservative politician who thought only of lax legislation and never of socializing. In October 197-t, one month before the general election. Mills was involved in a latenighl incidenl near Ihe Washington monument. Mills and a carload of friends, including Annabel Battislella. a stripper who danced under the name of "Fanne Foxc, the Argentine Firecracker." was slopped by U.S. park police. Mrs. Baltislela jumped into Ihe Tidal Basin and was rescued. Mills' face was cut and bleeding and his glasses broken, reportedly because of an earlier altercation with Mrs. Battislela. Many expected Mills lo resign once he went into seclusion afler Ihe incident, bul Mills instead returned lo Arkansas and began vigorously c a m p a i g n i n g . He easily won reelection, bul not by his usual landslide margin. Laler he was stripped of Ihe Ways and Means chairmanship Shortly after thai Mrs. Ballis- lela said her affair with Mills was over bul her love for him was nol. Mills also announced he was undergoing treatment for alcoholism. Five Democratic contenders already have announced for Mills' congressional seal, and several more have indicated privately they were awaiting definite word from Mills on his political plans. Lasl week Mills had indicated he would relire. FredHmfc/e MIDDLETON - Fred Jlinkle, 52, Middleton, died Friday in a Caldwell hospital. Services are pending a! M o u n t a i n View Funeral Home. H.

Standard 4 Poor's 500-slock index fell 0.60 point to and Ihe NYSE common slock index 0.30 lo 53.05. Declines topped advances, 1,042 to 796, among Ihe 2.053 issues crossing the tape. Myron Helman, vice presidenl of Shields Model Roland, said "on a near-!o intermediate-term basis, the market has peaked." He noted the Dow u t i l i t y .average, which generally leads market turns, has slipped recently. .As a result, Helman said he fell the industrial average would come under pressure. He said he "would expect ihe Dow industrials logo no lower than 890 in Ihe near future before gaining some strength," Volume totaled 120,542,710 shares, down sharply from the 161,737,900 traded last week, the second busiest week on record. Turnover during the same week a year ago totaled 130,010,110 shares, This week's volume, which averaged 24.1 million shares daily, was Ihe slowest in a full week since t!4,6J5,390 were traded the week ended Dec. 19 1975, just prbr lo the Christmas holidays. The average daily volume for the first two months of [his year has been more than 30 million shares. The slowdown in the trading was evidence the institutions had invested as much money as they're going lo for a lime being, lhal any "new" money was coming from public speculators and that Wall Street was entranced hy the Fed's apparent credit tightening. It mattered little to professional traders thai the government reported increases in factory orders, durable goods orders and nondurable goods orders; lhal Detroit's automakers registered sizable sales gains; that wholesale prices fell and unemployment declined for the fourth consecutive monlh The fact that Ihe economic recovery would be robust had been discounted during January and February, when the Dow- average rose nearly 150 points in the heaviest trading in ihe 184- year history of the NYSE.
