(Studio) Report on Patricia Hearst trial.
REPORTER: Harry Reasoner

(San Francisco, California) Assistant prosecutor David Bancroft tries to chip at University of California at Los Angeles psychiatrist, Dr. Louis West's testimony. Bancroft objects to defense attorney F. Lee Bailey's objections to his cross-exam. Judge Oliver Carter says if Bancroft thinks Bailey has no right to object, he'll tell Bancroft to "soak his head." Jury learns Hearst tried LSD and mescaline with fiance, Steve Weed, who also grew marijuana in their back yard. She once told nun to go to hell.
