latest SLA message San Francisco AP And now this from Patricia Hearst My parents are pigs my fiance a clown And I am a soldier of the peoples army who voluntarily robbed a bank Speakingiri a calm subdued voice in a taped message received Wednesday Miss Hearst said Greetings This is Tania She then proceeded to heap scorn and ridicule on her family said she never cared if she saw her sexist pig fiance again and added To those people who still believe that Im brainwashed or dead I see no reason to further defend my position I am a soldier of the peoples army Patricia Hearst tape says she robbed bank voluntarily The only way we can free ourselves of this fascist dic tatorship is by fighting not with words but withguns In the tape the 20yearold college coed called her parents the pig Hearsts and at one point addressed her father as Adolph She termed Steven Weed to whom she became engaged last December and planned to marry in June my exfiance Her father San Francisco Examiner editor and president Randolph A Hearst confirmed the voice was his daughters and added The only good thing is that she is alive Regarding her personal attacks on me if she has been brainwashed and I firmly believe she has then its not surprising she would say something like this No matter what she says we still love her The girl weve known all her life would not say something like that of her own freewill Miss Hearst whom the Sym bionese Liberation Army claims to have kidnaped on Feb 4 said in the tape she was a voluntary participant in an April 15 bank robbery in which four alleged members of the SLA have been named in warrants She is wanted as a material wit ness The tape which also included the voices of two men was Miss Hearsts first communication since she renounced her family on April

legislation that would require the Cost Of Living Council to enforce economic stabilization decontrol commitments and permit orderly termination of the wage and price controls program The voice vote set the stage for a formal legislative maneuver on the Senate floor before the scheduled midnight April 30 expiration of all price wage controls authority except for petroleum Political strategists said that if the Senate approved an ex Sfevenson plan adopted he says twas amazed Nixon response deadline altered tension and that seems to bej a distinct possibility now House Democrats would be em1 boldened to do likewise despite the firm opposition of organized labor But the administration says it doesnt want the authority The Democratic action came SUNNY as John T Dunlop the head of the Cost of Living Council predicted that the rate of infla tion for the second half of 1974 may be higher than the 5 or 6 per cent admin istrat ion economists had forecast Prices increased at an annual rate

Commission 72485000 Joe says hes champ Steel may stall building By John Trimble Of The Southern Illinoisan Southern Illinois construc tion work may be slowed this season by a shortage of steel and the uncertainty of steel prices Contractors say they are having trouble getting steel and the prices change so rap idly it is hard to accurately bid jobs Construction on the new Washington Elementary School in Johnston City may be delayed until the middle of June because of the lack of steel We have been unable to get any structural steel deliv ered to complete the skeleton of the building Lynn Holmes of Marion said F E Holmes and Son Construction Co of Marion is the contractor Weve been told that it will probably be the first or the middle of June before we will be able to get any steel JHmes said Until that time we will have to continue con struction around the frame Holmes said he plans todo the underground plumbing and possibly some of the masonry work until the steel arrives We have received enough structural steel to almost com plete the skeleton of the gym nasium Holmes said The availability of steel is something that is plaguing all of the construction projects in this area Holmes said Holmes said he purchases steel from fabricators who in turn purchase the steel from all the major steel suppliers in the country I just dont exactly know where the problem is except there is a delay somewhere along the line he said There does not seem to be a fantastic shortage of any one type of steel it just seems that different sizes of steel beams are unavailable Superior Structures Inc Marion has been having a hard time getting concrete re inforcing steel A spokesman at the com pany said orders are several months behind Superior is currently involv ed in a street improvement program in northeast Carbon dale Bridge beams and steel trusses ar also hard to get he said So far the construction busi ness has not been slowed too much by shortages this year because the weather has not permitted very much work anyway the spokesman said It will be another month be fore the industry is in full swing He said another problem that is hampering the industry is steel pricing The sellers cannot quote stable prices so by the time a company gets the steel it is higher than when thp job was bid At present reinforcing steel is costing about 17 to 24 cents a pound he said Although reinforcing steel is hard to get it is not the worst problem Wire mesh used in flooring pavements and walls is harder to find because the steel companies are not mak ing much of it he said He summed up the situa tion Everything is in short supply right now and our in dustry is no different than any other The escalation of prices is really a problem Leo Robinson president of the J L Robinson Develop ment Construction Co of Carbondale said Were hav ing trouble getting every thing but we look for it to be corrected with the lift ing of price controls Reinforcing steel is up to for 100 pounds and thats twice what it was last year this time he said The con struction business is in a mess His company is finishing the Southern Illinois Airport im provements building a high school at Jdppa and building the offices for the new Gen eral Tire plant at Mt Vernon among other smaller projects Joe Carlisle 13 of Santa Barbara Calif is the worlds champion pogo stick or at least he
