Increasing the meter violation fine from 25 cents to 51 (unless paid within an hour at the meter office) was supposed to create greater turnover, cut down violation rates and make more spaces available for downtown shoppers. Meyer's report said the violation rate has dropped from 33 percent to 12.4 percent, and the number of tickets written daily has dropped from 600 to 440. Because the parkettes have more time now, there's also a greater ehanca an overtime parker will be ticketed. The chance is 30 percent now, compared to 14 percent before the fine increase. Revenues are up from per day to There are still some prob lems, Meyer said, because o drivers who don't understanc the new system or who have dif ficulty finding a place to park when they pay their fine, bu the problems are decreasing iOWIST IS J t from 11 a.m. until 9 p.m. Father Leonard will recite the Rosary Friday at p.m. at the funeral Rain can be expected Thursday night in northern Nevada, the middle and upper Rockies and most of New Mexico.

Speaking of Weed on the tape, Miss Hearst said: "As for my ex-fiance, I'm amazed that he thinks that the first thing I would want to do once freed would be to rush and see him. The fact is, I don't care if I ever see him again. "During the last few months Sieven has shown himself to.be a sexist, ageist pig. Frankly, Steven is the one who sounds brainwashed. I can't believe those weary words he uttered were from his heart. They were a mixture of FBI rhetoric and Randy's simplicity." Mocks Mother In using the phrase "those weary Miss Hearst apparently was making a mocking allusion to a similar comment by her mother, Catherine. They were words used by Mrs. Hearst to describe the last communication from her daughter. Miss Hearst also questioned the validity of a letter published in her father's newspaper. The letter, said to be from French revolutionary Regis Debray, asked for proof she was speaking voluntarily.

She said she was alive and well. "As for being brainwashed, the idea is ridiculous to he point of being beyond be-ief." Grand Jury Meanwhile, two young women alleged to have known persons vho later joined the SLA, appeared Thursday before a federal grand jury probing :the bank robbery. Janet Cooper and Cynthia Garvey, both of Oakland, said n statements to reporters that hey have no information about he terrorist group beyond what hey learn from the press.

Others in the coup apparently seized a transmitter of Radio Clube Portugues about 30 miles southeast of Lisbon on the other side of the Tagus river. Shortly after the seizure the armed groups began broadcasting from Radio Clube, urging troops and nalional guardsmen and police to avoid bloodshec and urging the populace to remain at home. A rebel communique promising democratic reforms and free elections said the uprising was staged for several reasons, among them: After 13 years of African wars, the government "has not managed to define objectively and concretely an overseas policy which would lead to peace." Portuguese are not allowed "to fulfill their (political) duties as citizens." There was a "necessity to restoring our institutions and eliminating from our way of life all illegalities that the abuse of lower has permitted." It is "the duty of the armed brces to defend the country, a duty which we consider to include civil rights of all citizens." "To this the _ommuni-que added, "we hand over the jovernment to a junta of salvation which will hortly publish a statement of lolicy and a call for free elec-ions.

An army spokesman in Tel Aviv said Syrian and Israeli ar-illery dueled during the morn-ng on Mount Hermon and the southern Golan heights. There were no reported casualties. The Israeli government, which Wednesday observed 24 hours of mourning for war dead in four wars, decided to forego a military parade to mark the anniversary of Israeli independence Thursday. The 'only official events to mark the anniversary which actually falls on May 14 but is observed according to the Jew-sh lunar calendar were the annual international Bible quiz and a song festival.
