By Jon Norheimer c New York Times Los Angeles The search for Patricia Hearst resumed with new vigor Satur day as the authorities examined her latest taped message for clues to what she and her two companion fugitives might do next There were hints in message from the three which was delivered to a Los Angeles radio station Friday that they might soon reappear in some dramtic way to reinforce the bold language of the tape The recording by Miss Hearst and William and Emily Harris established that their main con cern was not merely to hide after the shoatout with the police on May 17 in Los Angeles in which six members of the so called Symbionese Liberation Army died The three SLA members stated repeatedly in the tape that they were willing to die in a revolutionary struggle that they said they believed would sweep the land The authorities had thought ill possible that Miss Hearst anc the Harrises would remain underground and silent while the search for them was centered in the Los Angeles area But the defiant messages filled with vilifications obscenities and challenges was seen as expressing a need t demonstrate that the surviving SLA members were mitted to revolution dead comrades Satur These new allegations sup orted by officials closely in volved in ftie wiretapping pro gram contradict Mr Kiss ugers testimony before the enate Foreign Relations Com mittee last September in hear ngs on his nomination as Secretary of State Kissinger told the senators ihat after May 1970 He and laig were in touch with the FBI only when the wiretaps produc ed a particularly egregious eport He also told the senators that ic never explicitly dealt with he question of terminating the wiretaps I assumed that a wiretap which proved unproductive was as as com their erminated Kissinger estified The sources told the New York imes however that FBI ecords showed that Kissinger through Haig rebuffed at least wo and possibly three of the Sureaus requests in mid1969 hat a wiretap on the home of Morton H Halperin then a Kissinger aide be terminated ecause it was unproduc Soviet dancer Panov and wife to emigrate memorandum quotes ive One iaig as citing Kissinger by name in rejecting the Bureaus pleas which were made in June a month after the wiretap was ut in place and again in late summer Halperin who later quit the National Security Council in jrotest over the Nixon ad ministrations Vietnam policies las since sued Kissinger and others on the ground that they violated his constitutional rights A high level White House source acknowledged that Haig had served as a liaison man between Kissinger and the FBI on the wiretaps but added He only did what he waf told to At the time the wiretapping began in May 1969 Haig was a colonel assigned to the Security Council Kissinger has repeatedly denied that he directly in itiated the wiretapping program and insisted that the idea to do so originated at a White House meeting he attended on May 9 1969 with President Nixon and J Edgar Hoover the late FBI director The Timess sources said there was no such White House meeting on May 9 1969 FBI files show that Hoover dictated a memorandum on that d a ys

adding I wont stay here an hour longer than I have to but everything will depend on OVIR the visa The break in the long deadlocked Panov affair raised speculation that some other Jewish activists long
