U. S. District Judge Oliver Carter said Friday he was sym- pathetic toward the efforts of the parents for her return. But he said it was "a matter in which I have no control. When Miss Hearst appears be- fore the court, we can then ne- gotiate as to what is reasonable bail and can look into what are the appropriate standards to apply." Attorney James Maclnnis. re- tained by Mr. and Mrs. Ran- dolph Hearst, said, "The parents of this girl are saying to her. 'Please come home' and saying, 'Please, Judge Carter, help us'.'" Opposes Motion U. S. Attorney James Brown- ing opposed the motion. "Once Miss Hearst is before the court, we would have no ob- jection to reducing bail, provid- ed she does give adequate as- surance that she will be availa- ble to stand he said. She was indicted June C in the robbery of a San Fran- cisco bank April 15. She also has been charged with violating federal weapons laws in Los An- geles. She faces bail on each set of charges. The S.ymbionese Liberation Army claimed it abducted Miss Hearst Feb. 4. But she said later in tape recordings that she became a member of the terror- ist group and took part in the robbery. Maclnnis said the real pur- pose of the motion was an at- tempt by Miss Hearst's parents to send a message to her by any possible channel. "Violent Deterrent" "They want to get word to the girl that, if she surfaces or sur- renders, bail 'will be set at a reasonable be said. He added that continuance of the bail at would be a "violent deterrent to her ever giving herself up." Carter said he realized the bail was high and should proba- bly be reduced, but said it was a matter to be discussed only with the defendant present. The parents, who live in su- burban Hillsborough, did not ap- pear in court. Union Assessed Strike Damages ST. LOUIS (AP) -Teamsters Union Local GOO was ordered Thursday to pay nearly mil- lion to 64 trucking firms for damages the companies in- curred during a .17-day strike 1870. U.S. District Judge Roy Har- per, who assessed the damages, had previously ruled that a strike conducted by the local was illegal and that the St. Lom's Motor Carriers Council and its member trucking firms were entitled to compensation.

Doctor Says Nixon Needs Lengthy Rest SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (AP) Richard Nixon has left the hospital but is under travel re- strictions that will keep him off the witness stand in the Water- gate cover-up trial for some time. Nixon was recuperating at his seaside villa Saturday after a 12-day stay in a Long Beach hospital. John Lungren, his physician, said the former President was "literally exhausted" and would require one to three months' rest. That made it unlikely he would appear soon as a witness in the trial of five former aides in Washington. The trial is ex- pected to last about three months. "Condition Worse" "I think after losing sleep, having repeated tests, I would say his condition is v.-orsc than when lie first came Lun- gren said. "And extreme poten- tial danger still remains." Nixon will take an anti- coagulant drug, Coumadin, for at least several months for his phlebitis, Lungren said. While taking it, he would be in danger of hcmorrhaging if lie suffered "physical trauma of any Lungren said. He will be able lo walk around freely within limits but "must not spend a protracted period of sitting in a ear or the doctor added. "Honest Conception" Nixon emerged from the hos- pital in a wheelchair with his leg propped up. Lungren said he knew some people still doubt the former President was actually ill "but this is my honest conception. I am trying to be non-political." ixporters Heed -UP1 Tck'pholo FIRST LADY BETTY FORD, who is regaining normal use of her arm following surgery, proves it by tossing a football to the President at Bethesda Naval hospital.
