Jerry Gustav Hasford, whose book "The Short-Timers" became the movie "Full Metal Jacket," is being sought by California Polytechnic State University authorities, who late last week discovered some 10,000 books from libraries around the world in a storage locker in San Luis Obispo rented to the author. Campus police said they staged the raid to locate 87 overdue library books checked out to Hasford that carried $3,000 in fines.
