The SLA also demanded that the cassette recording with "my voice aiul Miss Hearst's" be broadcast fully. The "my" in the letter was not identified. It further demanded that the SLA's seven-headed cobra em- blem and its latest letter be published in newspapers. Exchange The FBI and police have said it is logical that the SLA might demand in return for Miss Hearst's freedom the release of Russell Little, 14, and Joseph Remiro, 27. The two alleged SLA members arc being held without bail in San Quentin prison on charges they murdered Oakland Schools Supt. Marcus Foster last November, a slaying the SLA claimed it engineered. In Pcnsacola, Fla., Little's father, Oscar Little, said he planned to fly fo San Francis- co on Thursday to make good on a proposal that he trade places with the kidnaped girl. "The authorities there have been informed of my proposal for exchange with the girl and have agreed not to intervene if the transaction takes the retired credit union employe said Monday. Letter In a letter to the SLA pub- lished by the San Francisco Chronicle, Little said: "If you insist on practicing the art of execution, then why not accept the exchange of my- self, father of Russell Little. "Seeing as Russ is the only son I have, at least you could have the satisfaction of knowing that you had been instrumental in the destruction of riot only Russell but of his whole fami- ly." He said that if his son and Remiro are innocent in the Foster murder, "then how in heaven's name cart the kidnap- ing and threatened execution of Patricia Hearst have any signif- icance to RUES and Joe but to sustain their C.

Ernst has received suspended concurrent one-year sentences on three counts of failing to file federal income tax returns and has been, fined on each count. The 49-year-old Cedar Falls man was accused of failing to file, on gross income of for 1968, for 1969 and for 1070. Ernst pled guilty to. the charges last month. His attorney in a pre-sentence statement in federal court in Cedar Rapids Tuesday said he has been informed that Ernsl, an optometrist, will have his license suspended for a period of time to be determined after the sentence. He said his client has hired a certified public accountant to take care of his tax matters, but the work has riot been complet- ed because not all necessary materials have been received from the government. Ernst's only asset of conse- quence is his homestead, the at- torney said, and it is encum- bered. He said the family has a financial burden stemming from the care of a mentally retarded child. Judge E. J. McManus placed Ernst on probation for three years. 30 YEARS AGO The slate department revealed that more than American and Fili- pino war prisoners died of Japa- nese mistreatment in one prison camp alone during the first lew months of their detention.

They came back hours' later when the newsmen had left to take him into custody. "Obey the Law" Solzhenitsyn had refused to obey the summonses and sent a written reply to the prosecutors, suggesting they "learn to obey the law themselves." Solzhenitsyn said authorities should fulfill Soviet laws by re- leasing "the innocent from cap- tivity" and punishing officials responsible for alleged extermi- nations and deportations. "I refuse to.recognize the le- gality of your summons' and shall not appear at an tion in any state the writer said in the statement.

The new system would not compromise current security and fire protection and would in fact provide personnel who are more technically competent to perform airport duties, he added The. commission asked that the safely systems be reviewed last month after Jamesen re- ported modifications would have to be made to meet federal avi- ation administration fire stan- dards.
