Gen. William Saxbe that FBI agents should attempt to rescue Patricia Hearst from her kidnapers. "Mr. Saxbe is not the father of Patricia. I’m going to do what I can to get her out,” Hearst said in a stinging rebuke to the attorney general, who suggested earlier Thursday that the FBI find and rescue the 19-year-old heiress. “To make a statement that you are going to bust in and shoot the place up from Washington is damned near irrespon- Theior perhaps reallocation of gaso-said line supplies among the states — did not come on Thursday.

A spokesman for Jaworski said the prosecutor has informed the chairman of the senate judiciary committee, Sen. James Eastland (D-Miss.), of the refusal. “The production of the additional evidence for the Watergate investigation requested of the White House since Jan. 9, has now been refused by letter from Mr. James D. St. Clair, who advised us that he was acting at the direction of the President,” the spokesman said. The presidential decision to cut off the prosecutor from further access to tapes and documents he has requested set the stage for a new conflict. The announcement wats the first public acknowledgement by Jaworski that the White Hoi*e had flatly refused to continue providing material he has sought. Subpoena?
