this flight. They were B. Theeman [Bonnie Thielmann], W. Tietila [Wayne Pietila], J. Cobb [Jim Cobb], Ms. N. Huston [Nadyne Houston], Ms. [Mickey] Touchette, Ms C. [Clare] Bouqet, and Ms Grace Stoen.

According to Los Angeles FBI agent who briefly boarded the plane, Grace Stoen advised that she could possibly be a spokesman for the group, but she would discuss this matter further at San Francisco. It was pointed out to her that the FBI in San Francisco was very concerned about interviewing the above named individuals.

According to Delta officials in Los Angeles, an announcement of the arrival for Delta flight 965 will be made. The plan will not go to this gate but will be detoured to another gate. Particulars concerning this maneuver may be gained from Detal [Delta] representative [deleted name] in San Francisco. In addition, a stewardess on board flight -65 [965] by the name of [deleted name] may be contacted and she will point out Grace Stoen for easy identification.
