I am sure she's either being coerced—brainwashed—or being forced, but I don’t know which it is. and I'm sure he (Davies) doesn't either.” Charles Bates. FBI ag^nt in charge of the case, said only, “Photos are subject to various interpretations.” Author of Book Davies is author of a book called “The Truth About Kent State”. In the book he analysed photos on national guardsmen firing on a crowd of campus demonstrators in the 1970 incident in which four students died. There has been speculation whether Miss Hearst, 20, was a willing accomplice in the $10,-692 holdup in which four alleged members of the Symbio-nese liberation A r rn y are named in warrants. The SLA claims responsibility for the Feb. 4 abduction of Miss Hearst.
