(Studio) Report on Patricia Hearst trial.
REPORTER: Edwin Newman

(San Francisco, California) Photos show GIs in 1953 being indoctrinated in Korea. Defense says this what happened to Hearst. University of California at Los Angeles Psychiatrist, Dr. Louis West, tells jury of torment Hearst went through and how she joined SLA to stay alive. Says her clenched fist and revolutionary remarks after arrest were automatic reflexes. Prosecution shows that West approached Hearst's parents with his theory long before she was captured. Jury could open new chapter in law with regard to brainwashing and its effects.
