Kokomo Tribune (Newspaper) - October 9, 1975, Kokomo, Indiana Newspaper publishes SLA document SAN FRANCISCO (AP) Members of the Symbioncsc Liberation Army kidnaped Patricia Hearst in retalia- tion for the arrest of two comrades in the murder of an Oakland school su- perintendent, according to an SLA document published in part by the San Francisco Examiner. The newspaper, which did not say how it gained access to the material, printed lengthy excerpts from an SLA manuscript which explained the Feb. 4, 1974, kidnaping of Miss Hearst, whose father, Randolph A. Hearst, is president of the Examiner. The manuscript was included in a variety of written material confis- cated from the San Francisco apart- ment where SLA members Bill and Emily Harris were living when they were arrested on Sept. 18. Miss Hearst and artist Wendy Yoshimura were ar- rested later the same day at another apartment they shared here. The manuscript quoted in the Ex- aminer, apparently written by several SLA members, said the Hearst kid- naping was aimed at securing the release of SLA "soldiers" Russell Lit- tle and Joseph Remiro, who were ar- rested Jan. 10, 1974, for the slaying of Marcus Foster. "We didn't have any doubt that the Hearst family could arrange for a re- lease of Osceola (Little) and Bo but we needed to know whether the pressure of their daugh- ter's kidnaping would be enough to put this power into the manuscript said. "We were p.....off that the pigs had our two brothers and we all made a commitment at that time to come back strong.

Yet to be initialed are the school cal- endar, teacher hours and salary. Proposals have been handed back and forth and the board went into execu- tive session after its meeting Wed- nesday to discuss a teacher salary proposal. Agreement has been reached on ex- tra-curricular pay, coaches' salaries and a grievance procedure. Negotiation between TEA and the board began in February. An unfair labor practice charge was filed May 19 by TEA against the board. Negotia- tions continued into June but stalled until a decision was reached on the charge. A decision in favor of the teachers was handed down Aug. 19. In the deci- sion the board was ordered to nego- tiate all the items which had been in the 1970 teachers' contract. On Aug. 27 the board met with John 'City Council Hot Line' promises to give answers A new service to provide immediate answers to questions relating to af- fairs of the Kokomo Common Council will go into operation Tuesday. Dubbed "City Council Hot. the service will originate from the of- fice of Linda Boyd, city clerk, but indi- viduals seeking information are asked not to call the clerk's regular tele- phone number. Instead, to receive a response on council matters, callers are to dial 457-7588. The new number will be operational Mondays through Fridays, between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., according to Mrs. Boyd, who said problems can be dis- cussed with her or directly with the councilman involved through a tele- phone conference arrangement. "I know there have been times when people had a complaint or a problem and didn't know whom to Mrs. Boyd stated, noting that by use of the new service, questions can be cleared up within minutes. "Extended office hours and the ser- vice of the clerk's violation bureau have been beneficial to the public in the past four years, and, hopefully, the Council Hot Line will be another community service that will benefit the clerk remarked. Mrs. Boyd said she is not adding personnel to her office to handle the new service and its only cost will be for the telephone billings. For some reason, fall leaves are brighter reds this year By TONY BARKER Anderson Daily Bulletin (Written for Associated Press) The colors may be brighter but briefer as Indiana tourists make their annual autumn pilgrimages in search of the state's renewed foliage. The next two weekends may be the best times to view the annual specta- cle, according to Dave Herbst, direc- tor of Indiana state parks. "The colors will start to peak this he said. "This year, it's ahead by about a week, probably due to the amount of precipitation." The wetness could, however, bring a quick end to the fall delights. "After mid-October, when we have a few rains, the leaves are loose en- ough that they are washed Herbst. said. "They're definitely at their peak now."

The Mecca for those in search of fall beauty is Brown County State Park, where the full .time naturalist pro- gram is in full swing. Tom Fulton, property manager at Brown County park, said tourists may find something extra this fall. "For some reason, the leaves are brighter this year than before, with brighter reds and he said. "We've kicked it around here trying to find the reason, but we can't put our finger on it. The best time is from this point on. We have the brightest colors now and it's continuing to improve. I think it will peak this week and the fol- lowing week." Tourists have flocked to Brown County in the usual overwhelming numbers, with no weekend motel ac- commodations remaining and only few rooms available during the week. Adding to the annual attraction are fish fries, bluegrass music and square dancing on weekends, but those ev- ents are hardly restricted to Brown County. The State Division of Tourism lists several fall festivals throughout the state, highlighted by the annual Covered Bridge Festival in Parke County. E. Fell Jr. to discuss the charge. The board had 20 days from Aug. 19 to ap- peal the ruling before the Indiana Ed- ucation Employes Relations Board Deciding not to appeal, the board began negotiations Sept. 1. Since that time five meetings have been held. Current teacher contracts expire Dec. 31 and both sides hope that nego- tiations will not last that long. Edwin Berndt, board member, noti- fied the board that through acquisi- tions his insurance company now han- dles the school corporation's insur- ance. The Bill Hardy Agency, which had been been awarded the insurance contract- last year was sold to the Scott-Mason and Hatch Insurance Agency. On Oct. 1, the agency of Woodmansee-Berndt-Dean sucess- fully bid on the business of that agency. Berndt told the board he will re- sign if the board thinks he should. However, Hodge said that he sees no conflict of interest now because the bid had been accepted when Berndt was not a part of the agency. He added that there may be a conflict when insurance bids are requested again by the board. Dr. Gerald Essington, superintend- ent, said that the construction and renovation approved by the board is almost complete. The tennis courts and all-weather track have been se- aled; the electric capacitor have arri- ved and soon will be installed; the storeroom at the Indian Heights Ele- mentary School is near completion. Dr. Essington also asked about the feasibility of placing a repair service for buses on retainer. He said he had contacted Steve's Service, Green- town, but no decision had been re- ached. The board agreed that it would be a good idea. A dinner for previous board mem- bers and township trustees is set for Nov. 7 in the Taylor High School. The Home Economics Club will cook and serve The High School Swing Choir will perform.

(AP Wirephoto) Hirohito greets Mickey Mouse LOS ANGELES (AP) Japanese Emperor Hirohito fulfilled a "long cherished desire" in a daylong visit here, eating California avocados amid mariachi music and shaking hands with two of his favorite personalities, John Wayne and Mickey Mouse. The emperor was scheduled to fly to San Diego today for a tour of the city's acclaimed zoo and to visit the Scripps Institute of Oceanography in nearby La Jolla. He flies to San Francisco late in the day for his next-to-last stop on a 15-day U.S. tour. The emperor's plane circled the Grand Canyon briefly before arriving here from Chicago on Wednesday, and he later rode a tiny steam-engine train through a Disneyland exhibit showing the evolution of the national landmark. The 74-year-old emperor and Em- press Nagako were greated at the amusement park gate Wednesday by Mickey Mouse and the Seven Dwarfs, then were seated on wrought-iron chairs for a command performance of the park's musical salute to the Bicen- tennial, America on Parade. Hirohito and his wife earlier were hosted by Mayor Tom Bradley and other state and local officials, includ- ing Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr., at a lavish luncheon in the downtown Mu- sic Center. The lunch included filet rnignon and California wines, and Hirohito's inter- est was piqued by the avocados in his salad and the music of a Mexican mariachi band in the hall. He toasted the mayor and citizens of Los Angeles before stopping briefly to chat with actors John Wayne and Charlton Hes- ton on the way out. Hirohito is a Wayne fan and had met Heston some years ago in Tokyo dur- ing the Japanese premiere of the movie the emperor's news secretary said. The emperor ended his day by din- ing with members of the Japa- nese-American community. Biofeedback appears to be curing illnesses TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) Biofeed- back, a technique that "is still pretty much of a is curing chronic phychosomatic illnesses by teaching patients to tap power within their own minds, doctors reported at a national medical seminar. Speakers at the first National Con- gress on Integrative Health said Wed- nesday that patients using biofeed- back have learned to alter their blood pressure, stop migraine headaches and control asthma attacks simply by concentration. "Biofeedback is the yoga of the said Dr. Elmer Green, head of the psychophysiology laboratory at the Menninger Clinic in Topeka, Kan., an institution pioneering re- search in the technique. He said biofeedback harnesses "the placebo the well-documented phenomenon of patients improving merely from suggestion after taking a fake medicine. "The placebo effect is one of the most powerful things known to medi- said Dr. Green. "That power hasn't been utilized." Biofeedback uses sensors that moni- tor a patient's skin temperature, brain function or nerve action. These signals are amplified and then dis- played on a dial. The patient is shown the dial reading and told to change it simply by concentration. Dr. Green said that patients, in ef- fect, are taught to consciously affect some bodily functions which normally are controlled by the unconscious mind. A high rate of success of the tech- nique has been shown for psychoso- matic illnesses, or ailments with a mental instead of physical origin. Dr. Green claims that 50 to 80 per cent of all medical complaints originate from psychological stress. Dr. Arthur E. Gladman, a Califor- nia psychiatrist, reported he has used biofeedback to treat successfully such disorders as migraine headache, Ray- naud's Disease (a circulatory disor- asthma, peptic ulcer and chronic pain. He said he has used the technique on 175 patients and experi- enced some degree of success with each one, but he admits "biofeed- backs is still pretty much of a mys- tery." His patients ranged in age from 11 to 84 and all had ailments caused by some type of emotional and psychol- ogical stress. He said that often the beneficial ef- fects went far beyond the original complaint. "Many patients feel they are at the control of outside said the psychiatrist. "When they develop a way to control internal forces, they develop a new awareness of self. It en- ables individuals to view the world in a new way." The reports came on the first day of the meeting, sponsored by the Aca- demy of Parapsychology and Medi- cine. It has attracted doctors from 30 states.

(AP Wirephoto) OPORTO, Portugal (AP) Demon- strators supporting mutinous far-left soldiers clashed with opponents over- night, and hospital authorities said be- tween GO and 80 persons were injured, two with bullet wounds. Most of the victims, including six soldiers, were injured during rock-throwing battles between the two groups, they said. It was impossible to fix the origin of the shots in the general confusion. At the height of the demonstration, rebel troops fired blanks at the crowd of several thousand and drove a tank into the midst of the crowd in an at- tempt to break up the demonstration outside their barracks. The demonstration, grouping about members of the centrist Popular Democratic party began in the heart of Portugal's second largest city 175 miles north of Lisbon. The demonstrators shouted their support for Portugal's current, moderate gov- ernment. Large sections of the crowd then crossed a bridge over the Douro River and headed for the rebel artillery re- giments barracks, where they were confronted by a few hundred leftists who are camping outside the head- quarters in support of the mutineers. There were rock-throwing battles and charges behind makeshift wooden shields by both sides before the firing broke out and the military regiment sent in its tank. The mutineers arc demanding the reinstatement of leftist activists pur- ged from military units. Fear of civil war has increased in Portugal as more and more army un- its have taken sides between moder- ate leftists who control the govern- ment and the radical left which preaches revolution. The moderates, led by the Socialists and the Popular Democrats who won two thirds of the vote in April's na- tional elections, seek restoration of traditional discipline within the mili- tary, while the Communists have promoted dissent. The current Portuguese govern- ment is the sixth since military re- formers overthrew the old rightist regime in April 1974. The Communists say the revolution- ary ferment in the armed forces is not "chaos and anarchy" but "a lively expression of the struggle of working people and an affirmation that or- der in the armed forces can only be at- tained by removing reactionaries from posts of command." Seeking to avoid conflict that could escalate into civil war, the northern military command Wednesday rcs- Senior Citizens Center dedication to be Friday Dedication of the new addition to the Senior Citizens Center in Foster Park will take place 10 a.m. Friday The recreation center has been ex- panded to provide more space for sen- ior citizen's activities.

A command spokesman said 500 sol- diers of the Serra do Pilar artillery re- giment were joined by 150 soldiers from other units in the mutiny which began Tuesday. Hospitalized Martha Mitchell, estranged wife of former Arty. Gen. John N. Mitchell, is hospitalized for a serious bone marrow disease, says Dr. Thomas E. O'Brien, who is treating her. O'Brien said Tuesday night that Mrs. Mitchell has "a type of malig- nancy" that "is not a cancer in the strict sense of the word." (AP Wire- photo) WASHINGTON (AP) President Ford's plan aimed at stimulating competition in the air transportation industry is drawing strong opposition from airlines. Ford announced Wednesday he is asking Congress to remove some of the authority of the Civil Aeronautics Board, to allow airlines more freedom to raise and lower fares and to start and stop service between cities. Administration officials contended the legislation would result in lower over-all air fares for the public by stimulating competition. Major airlines objected to the pro- posal, saying it would lead to higher prices and turn the nation's transpor- tation system into chaos. The heads of House and Senate subcommittees involved with stud- ies of airlines indicated agreement with the effort to make air travel more affordable, but withheld imme- diate judgment on the Ford proposal. Rep. Glenn Anderson, D-Calif., chairman of the House Public Works aviation subcommittee, called Ford's proposal "commendable." Sen. Howard Cannon, head of the Senate Commerce Committee's avia- tion subcommittee, said, "I admit there is too much regulation. I am not ready to form a judgment on the legis- lation until I sec it." Much opposition to the Ford pro- posal was aimed at a provision that would let airlines start or stop service on routes. This proposal, which would be effective Jan. 1, 1981, would allow airlines to begin flights on routes which they now have no CAB author- ity to serve. It also would let them halt service on unprofitable routes unless the federal, state or local government agreed to subsidize losses. The Air Transport Association, rep- resenting scheduled airlines, said Ford's proposal would "tear apart a national air transportation system recognized as the finest in the world.
