The statement was added to the end of a copy of Saturday’s tape in which Miss Hearst accused the FBI of wanting to kill her. In Sunday’s statement, an unidentified woman said the SLA sent tapes Saturday to radio stations KDIA in Oakland and KSAN in San Francisco.

Miss Hearst’s father, Randolph Hearst, editor and president of the San Francisco Examiner, told newsmen, “We were glad to hear her voice and to know that Patty’s alive, blit we’ll have to study it before we make any reply.” On the tape, the University of California coed said “it’s the FBI who wants to murder me.” She said the SLA had taught her how to fire a shotgun to protect i herself during a possible police raid. aren t much“^‘r‘rted about JI™ intercepted it before KDIA    ‘    Real    Deering their own lives.

Set as Condition WASHINGTON (AP) - District Atty Joseph Busch of Us Angeles county agreed Monday to peek dismissal of California burglary and conspiracy charges that had been placed in I the EUsberg case against John ! Ehrlichman, David Young and G. Gordon Liddy. The perjury charge leveled against Ehrlichman would remain. Made Jointly The announcement, was made jointly by Busch and special Watergate prosecutor Leon Ja-worski. Ehrlichman and Liddy were indicted by a federal grand jury last week on federal conspiracy charges in the case. Young was not indicted by the federal grand jury in Washington. Busch    agreed to    drop    the state charges as a result of the federal indictments. “Among the reasons given for seeking    to    dismiss    are    that many of these issues involve matters of national interest and therefore would best be decided in the federal court system,” the announcement said. “The two indictments would be exposing defendants to trial in two different jurisdictions By United Press International iwas to have been lifted at the agreed to discuss Sadat's propos- expected Syria and Algeria to an<L *n fairness to those defen-Deeply divided among them- Sunday meeting.    a1 in Tripoli.
