off the wire- Three Marked for Death by Terrorist SLA ^BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) The three persons marked for death by the terrorist Sym- bionese Liberation Army are trying to prove they are not FBI informers and have gone underground to avoid being "Shot on sight." SLA "death warrants" for Colston Westbrook, Chris Thompson and Robyn Steiner were included in the last com- munique from the group that claimed responsibility for kidnaping newspaper heiress -Patricia Hearst from her •^Berkeley apartment Feb. 4. SLA Field Marshal General Cinque issued the execution orders in the April 3 message, which also included Miss Hearst's declaration that she had joind her terrorist kidnapers and renounced her family. The most frequent communication from the three targets has been from Westbrook, 35, a teaching assistant at University of California at Berkeley, whose greetings are played by automatic equipment for those who telephone his Berkeley home. The messages change frequently. "Thanks for the telephone calls and support," said Westbrook's latest message Sunday. "I hope you have an enjoyable Easter." Westbrook, who said he earlier had gone East but was back in the San Francisco Bay area, warned he would arm himself if the SLA did not listen to reason. He asked for a lie detector test or a trial with state prison inmates as jurors to clear his name. Westbrnok apparently came CHECK OUR SPRING SALE STANDARD FIBERGLASS BELTED AMOCO.

WASHINGTON (AP)-The head of the Environmental Protection Agency says the end of the Arab oil embargo has prompted Americans to become "very complacent" again about conserving energy. EPA Administrator Russel Train said Sunday there was too much emphasis on expanding supplies of energy rather than reducing demand. "I am concerned that with the cutoff of the Arab embargo the American public is going to go back to its wasteful ways," Train said on the CBS television program "Face the Nation." "I think that we're very complacent about this, not really recognizing that we're in for a long-term energy problem in this country," he said. We've got to make up our minds. . .that we better start giving the highest possible priority to reducing the use of energy." Train said a switch to smaller cars is "probably the largest single energy savings that we could make.'' Meanwhile, New England Utilities today return their Voltage to full power after a winter cutback to save fuel. A spokesman for the New England Power Pool said the federal allocation system and ending of the oil embargo have stabilized the supply of fuel to the region's electric generating plants. Beginning Nov. 27, utilities in the six-state area had imposed a 5 per cent voltage cut daily between 5 and 9p.m. SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Two hitchhiking teen-agers were critically wounded in what police say was the latest in a series of senseless shootings. Eleven persons have been killed in random attacks since November. Homicide Inspector Frank Falzon said the shootings Sunday night were "most definitely" linked to the so-called Operation Zebra shootings. Zebra is the police code for 15 shootings which caused the 11 deaths over the five-month period and set off the largest manhunt in the city's history. In each case, a black assailant shot a white victim at nearly pbintblank range. Police have been unable to determine a motive for the shootings. Ward Anderson, 18, and Terry White, 15, were approached by "at least one black man who opened fire at a distance of about five feet and fired several times," Falzon said- The youths were reported in serious but stable condition after undergoing surgery at Mission Emergency Hospital. Falzon said casings from a .32-caliber automatic weapon — the same type used in the other Zebra shootings — were found at the scene. About 20 minutes after the double shooting, a man told police a gunman fired a sawed-off shotgun at him from a passing car about a mile and a half from where the two youths were gunned down. But police said they were unable to find any evidence of the blast, and doubted the shooting took place. Time* Herald, Carroll, la. *•* Monday, April 15, 1974 ^ IMIMHIMMUMII Daily Record GRINNEL, Iowa (AP) — The thieves who robbed the Pizza Hut restaurant here Sunday probably will think twice before pulling another holdup, Restaurant manager Cindee Ward, 24, wasn't about to let the masked robber get away with $359 at knife-point.

CITY, Iowa (AP) Officials at the University of Iowa U of I say the school will become the first institution of higher learning in Iowa to adopt a method of measuring a person's participation in continuing education programs. ____ The plan is called te Continuing Education Unit (CEU) '. and is designed to reflect knowledge gained in workshops, shortcourses, and other non-credit educational programs offered off campus— but which nornallly don't show up on a persons 's academic record. OMAHA, Neb., (AP)-The U. S. Department of Agriculture has scheduled a public hearing here April 23 to consider proposals to amend pooling and payment provisions in the federal milk marketing order for Nebraska and western Iowa.

Booth, long-time secretary-treasurer of Lennox Industries, Inc., nationally-known heating and air conditioning manufacturers, died Saturday of a heart attack at his Marshalltown home. Board of Trade CHICAGO (AP) - Farm commodity futures moved sharply higher today on the Chicago Board of Trade. For a few minutes after the opening, limit gains were posted in soybeans and in soy oil, then prices retreated. The advance was 20 cents a bushel in soybeans and 100 points, or 1 cent a pound, in oil. Soybean meal futures rose about $4 a ton. Wheat, corn, oats and iced broilers also were higher. The strong buying was largely influenced by the recent heavy rains and flood conditions in the South and conern over shortages of fertilizer. If fertilizer use is cut, yields could be lower and production goals of the government would not be met. As soybean oil and soybean prices pushed the limits, there developed a scarcity of sellers. After the limit had been attained quick profit-taking by professionals turned priceslower. The buying in the soybean complex tended to influence similar moves in wheat, corn and oats. It also tapered off in the grains with the retreat in the complex. Iced broiler buying was linked to strength in red meat futures. After about an hour, soybeans were 12 to 13 cents a bushel higher, May 5.54; corn was 6V4 to 7% higher, May 2.63Mz; Chicago wheat was 4 to 5Mz higher, May 4.34 while Gulf hard red was 3 to 5 higher, July 4.37 and oats were 2»/4 to 5 higher, May 1.21%. WHERE ARE THEY WASHINGTON (AP) Gasoline, cigarette and sales taxes account for much of the demand for pennies. Other billions simply have dropped out of circulation — lost, deposited in piggy banks, forgotten in desk drawers or horaded by coin collectors.

Wall Street NEW YORK (AP) - Stock market prices improved a bit today, but the pulse of activity remained feeble. The noon Dow Jones average of 30 industrials was up 1.72 at 846.53, and advances nosed out declines by about a 7-6 margin on the New York Stock Exchange. Brokers attached little significance to the market's upward drift, noting that volume on the Big Board continued at about its slackest pace in months. American Telephone & Telegraph was the Big Board's most active stock, down % at 47%, equalling its 1974 low. Brokers noted that the stock is bought primarily for its yield, and thus tends to decline in periods of rising interest rates. At the American Stock Exchange 1 , the market value index was down .14 to 93.87. Other Big Board issues on the active list included Citicorp., up M- at 40'/fe. The issue was recommended by a major advisory service. Most glamors were firm. IBM, subject of some bullish comments in Barron's magazine, gained 3 to232Vfe; Digital equipment was up 1% to 107%, and Polaroid climbed IVs to 62. The Amex volume leader was Syntex, up 1 at 48 7 / 8 . The often volatile stock has rallied from a recent low of 42% after sharp declines attributed by the company to "unfounded" reports about two of its new drugs. NYSE's noon composite index of all its listed common stocks was up .08 at 49.17. IN MEMORY OF Rev. Elmer W. Brewer Ravenna, Neb.
