ANTHONY Ll.'KAS New York Times Service NEW YORK After a protracted and hard-fought battle, New York has landed one of the world's largest and most lucrative conventions for 1969. The New York Convention and Visitors Bureau said Saturday that the American Medical Association had agreed to hold its July, 1969, annual meeting here. Bureau officials estimated that the convention would attract more than 65.000 people and bring about $7.5 million into the city. The AMA's decision ell- Tshombe Reported Kidnapped On Flight MADRID OJPD The Spanish news agency Clfra said Saturday that Moise Tshombe, exiled former Congolese premier, had been "kidnapped" during a short flight over the Mediterranean and taken to Algeria. Citing "well-Informed sources," the agency said the unidentified kidnappers hi- jacked Tshombe's private plane while it was flying from the Spanish Mediterranean Island of Majorca to nearby Ibiza. Cifra reported the sources said the plane was diverted to a military airfield in Algeria. It said the kidnap- 10."19 Itriuling lid. liiii III iri 1FI-I r itx i,.

The Spanish agency did not say when the alleged kidnapping; happened or how Tshombe's alleged captors got aboard his private aircraft. TSHOMBE Is under a death sentence In the Congo for "high treason." If con-firmed, the kidnapping could be part of a plot to take him back to the Congo capital of Kinshasa. Long the storm center of Congolese politics, Tshombe has been living In exile mostly In Spain since Gen. Joseph Mobutu ousted his government in a bloodless military coup in November, 1985. Tshombe then flew to Europe for "medical treatment" and has not been back in the Congo since. Last March 13 a Congolese military court sentenced Tshombe to death for "high treason." He was tried in absentia. TSHOMBE had been living in a plush Madrid apartment and neighbors said they saw him there only two days ago. About that time he left Madrid aboard his twin-Jet private plane for Rome. From there he flew to Palma de Majorca. Clfra said it was on the subsequent flight from Majorca to the tiny neighboring island of Ibiza, a 10-minute hop to the southwest, that the hijackers diverted the plane. Spanish government sourcrs replied "no comment" to all questions about the Cifra report. Reliable sources said Generalissimo Kranclsco Franco summoned his cabinet to an urgent meeting Saturday afternoon, however. maxes more than "two years of discussion and about four months of maneuvering, persuading, cajoling and infighting by the convention bureau to bring what one official called "this big baby" to New York. Although the battle for .the AMA convention was unusual in its length and ferocity, it Illustrates the Intense competition In which the city's convention bureau must now engage to get conventions for the city. As to whether the battle is worth the effort, the bureau cited the figures for last year, when 2,683,580 delegates and guests came here for 801 conventions and poured $266,142,000 into the city's economy. As small cities throughout the country have completed modern, new facilities in recent years and gone out more aggressively in search of conventions. New York has had to compete much harder to keep, much less expand its share of the country's conventions. "Convention combat has become much, much tougher in recent years," Charles Glllett, executive vice president of the convention bureau, said in a recent interview. Glllett, a genial, gray-haired executive believes the clinching of the American Medical Association convention is one of his bureau's greatest triumphs. "This is a red-hot convention one of the top prizes in the game," he said. New York normally gets the AMA once every four or five years because it is one of the few cities in the country with enough facilities to accommodate a convention of this size. Chicago, San Francisco, Atlantic City and occasionally Miami Beach have been the other sites of AMA annual conventions. After the last AMA convention in New York in 1065 convention bureau officials began talking with AMA about 1969 and soon got a tentative agreement that the organization would meet here June 22 to 26. Planning went ahead on that basis until early this year when negotiations be- tween the AMA and the coliseum, where the convention's main exhibits will be held, broke down. However, in March, tired of waiting for the AMA to sign the contract, the coliseum management leased the building for the June, 1969, dates to another convention. FEARFUL OF losing the AMA altogether, the convention bureau quickly proposed dates In July, 1969, but the AMA board of trustees balked at changing Its traditional June meeting time. In early April, It dropped New York to third in Its order of preference for the 1969 meeting behind Miami Beach and San Francisco. "That was a really critical moment In the battle and we really swung Into action with everything we had." recalls Eugene C. Hosmer Jr., the bureau's director of sales. The bureau was successful. At its May meeting, the board reversed Its stand and voted to come to New York from July 13 to 17, 1969. . t BOB WIGS Tout hair problami t quickly tolvaa jtt put ea en a ef Japp'i natural hair hob wiji.
