(Studio) Angela Davis' lawyers give final arguments. Say absence of blacks on jury could handicap justice in her case.
REPORTER: Garrick Utley

(San Jose, California) Prosecutor Albert Harris says Miss Davis conspired to kidnap and murder to free her lover, Soledad Bro. George Jackson. Shows guns she bought which were used in shoot-out. Defense attorney Howard Moore says prosecution witnesses confused, mistaken. Attorney Leo Branton says he doesn't know who person was that witnesses identified as Miss Davis. Asks why she would use own name to buy gun she intended to use in crime?
