Black militant Angela Davis, avowed Communist and former UCLA instructor, was sought yesterday on warrants charging murder and kidnap in the Aug. 7 shoot-out that killed a judge and three others. Dist. Atty. Bruce Bales said he had issued an all- points bulletin for Miss Davis after heavily armed police officers failed to find her in a raid late Friday on a San Francisco home. Miss Davis, 26, identified by police and news media as the purchaser of three guns used in the courthouse kidnapings, was charged with one count of murder in the judge's death and five counts of kidnap, Bales said. Similarly charged was Ruchell Magee, 31, San Quentin convict wounded in the shoot-out. Bales said Miss Davis was charged under California law holding that anyone who aids or abets in a major crime is equally guilty with the direct participants. Warrants against Miss Davis were issued on the eve of a funeral in Oakland yesterday for Jonathan Jackson, 17. Police say he smuggled weapons into a Marin County courtroom for the attempted escape of three San Quentin convicts. Jackson and two of three convicts to whom he gave arms were killed as they tried to drive away in a van. Inside the van, Superior Court Judge Harold J. Haley, 65, one of five hostages, was shot to death. Two San Quentin convicts, James D. McClain, 37, and William Christmas, 27, also were killed. Bales said investigators had "a number of leads" on Miss Davis' whereabouts. In Friday night's raid, police found her sister, Fania Jordan of Los Angeles, but released her after questioning. The home raided was headquarters of defense activities for three black convicts accused of killing a white Soledad Prison guard last January. The Soledad Brothers, as they are called by militants organizing their legal defense, are awaiting trial at San Quentin. During the cqurtroom break, witnesses said Jackson shouted a demand that the Soledad prisoners be freed by 12:30 p.m., or within the hour. Bales said he understood four guns had been brought into the courtroom by Jackson. At least two guns had been purchased by Miss Davis, the office of California Atty. Gen. Thomas C. Lynch said Wednesday. Lynch said Miss Davis had bought a Browning .38 automatic pistol on Jan. 12,1968, and a 30 - caliber PlainfieM rifle, M1A1, carbine on April 7, 1969, from Los Angeles stores. The Los Angeles Herald - Examiner reported yesterday that a third gun, the shotgun that killed Haley, had been purchased by Miss Davis in San Francisco two days before the shootiof. The newspaper attributed its copyright report to "investigative sources." Chavez continues fast despite doctor's pleal 2 black militant leaders held in Chicago shooting CHICAGO - Police charged two leaders of a South Side street gang with conspiracy to commit murder yesterday in connection with then* continuing investigation of the critical wounding of a policeman outside of an abandoned hotel Lee Jackson, 26, and Maurice Carter, 17, both reputed members of the leadership circle of the Black P Stone Nation, were the 21st and 22nd persons arrested in connection with the shooting incident but the first to be charged specifically with the wounding of Detective James A. Alfano Jr. Alfano was in "very grave" condition at Billings Hospital where he has received more than 100 pints of rare AB pos- itive blood. Doctors said bullets struck his liver, an organ that normally helps cleanse blood, making it necessary to continue transfusions. The Thursday night gunfire began when bullets were fired from the once stylish South* moor Hotel at an unmarked gang intelligence unit police car. The hotel, abandoned by its owners, has been taken over by street gangs. Twenty other persons, many of them members of the Black P Stone Nation, a coalition of about 50 street gangs, were arrested on a variety of charges after the incident. They have been charged with disorderly conduct, aggravated battery, resisting arrest, mob action, failure to register firearms and possession of marijuana. Insults front Indian groups traded during ceremonial United Press International GALLUP, N.M. -TheGal- lup Inter - Tribal Indian Ceremonial Association and the Navajo Indian Reservation's Office of Economic Opportunity • funded legal services program traded insults yesterday with the four-day ceremonial in full swing here. Edward S. Merry, head of the ceremonial association, which annually stages the tourist spectacle, said he believes the OEO organization, Dinebeiina Nahiilna Be Agadi- tahe, Inc., (DNA) is responsi- ble for protests which occurred during the first three days of the ceremonial. Leo Haven, DNA director, said there is a feeling of bitter resentment toward the protesters even though the demonstrations have been peaceful. City police, bolstered by Indian officers and state police, have arrested 250 persons for public drunkenness. Most of those thrown in jail were Navajos from the nearby reservation. Advertisement < TERMITES - 6th of a Series. If your home is less than five years old, you probably have a "termite warranty." The minimum FHA guaranty is for 5 years, The builder is responsible for any termite treatment or damage for the first five years. Some builders give 10 year warranties. These warranties are included la the purchase price, of the home and there are no further charges during the lifetime of the warranty. Treating is done by a termite firm at the time of construction. WeVe seen termites in build- Ings before construction was complete; we've seen buildings over 50 years old without a sign of termites. But in about 80% of all termite jobs, termites first showed up in the 6th to 8th year. A 10 year warranty spans these dangerous years of discovery. For homes over one year old, FHA requires a "termite inspection" before they will insure a new mortgage. Every buyer should insist on such a report at the, escrow closing by a firm in whom he has confidence. A thorough inspection costs about $20.00, wjuch is paid by the seller.

Angela Davis United Press International SALINAS, Calif. - Cesar Chavez ignored Ms doctors' orders yesterday and refused to end a "fast of thanksgiving" which has confined him to bed. The 43-year-old leader of the United Farm Workers Organizing Committee was told to start eating by Dr. Jerome Lackner, who said Chavez might suffer "irreparable damage" if he didn't end the fast. But Chavez fasted for a fifth day. "The doctors are trying hard to get him to eat," a union spokesman said. "They're currently in the bar- gaining stage with him, but Chavez says he won't eat until he feels he's fasted long enough." Chavez began his fast Tuesday to protest a restraining order issued in his union's jurisdictional struggle in the Saunas Valley with the Teamsters. The two unions settled their differences the next day, but the farm union chief- taui continued the fast as a "fast of thanksgiving." A union spokesman close to Chavez said yesterday the fast also had religious implications for the farm leader, who believes social change can come only through self- sacrifice and nonviolence. Chavez fasted for 25 days hi 1968 during his effort to organize California grape growers and suffered permanent back injuries. LETCO WORID CARPETS 3811 W. Indian Sch.
