Hearst arnily since their daughter was abducted Feb. 4 from her Berkeley, Calif., apartment, insists that systematic techniques aren't necessary. Given the stress, a feeling of shared danger and her relative youth, said Dr. Frederick Hacker of Los Angeles, it's easily conceivable that 20-year-old Miss Hearst could have yielded to mental coercion. "It's not at all unusual that late adolescence one be comes a very different person," he said. "And the time (that is not particularly short if one is no particularly short if one considers the total control of information and interpretation they had during her captivity." A former observer of so- called "brainwashing" of Korean War GI's agreed. "We fell it had been demonstrated thai f you have total physical con i rol of a human being for a few weeks or more ...

Mayer, now head of the Calir ornia Department of Health, was a member of a special Army team that studied repatriated CI's from Korean prison camps. He declined, however, to speculate on Miss Hearst's motives. Newspaper executive Ran dolph Hearst says of his daugh ter: "We've had her 20 years. They've had her 60 days." He said at one point. "I don't believe she's going to change her philosophy that quickly or thai permanently."
