Mav. 9. lUPj—Murra/ Levlnc, whose 12- year-old son Peter ivas kidnaped 13 days n»o, admitted despondently today that efforts to deliver the $30,000 ransom demanded hy the boy's abductors have failed thus far. '"I here has teen no ransom payment," he to'd reporters who telephoned Ills home. "Any report of Hint is incorrect." Levine's statement was interpreted to nw\n that the kidnapers had not responded to his reiterated appeals by press and radio that Ihey renew the contact made last week after the ransom note was received. Tlie anxious father refused to answer any special questions concerning ills efforts to get with (he alxluctors. "There is nothing new," he said and hung np.
