The government quickly ascribed political motives to the abduction of Antonio Maria de Oriol Urquijo, 63, president of the Council of State and a member of the king's advisory council. It said the kidnaping "will not influence the Spanish political process." But with the vote only four days away, the abduction opened the government to charges it had lost authority and raised the possibility of more "no" votes from the right wing in the national referendum. Spaniards are being asked to vote Wednesday on a program of reforms that include national parliamentary elections next year to replace the appointed body instituted by the late Gen. Francisco Franco. Police closed the border with France, on the edge of Spain's Basque region some 225 miles north of Madrid, and began an extensive manhunt in the capital for four young men with submachineguns who whisked Oriol from his law office and disappeared with him in midday Madrid traffic. The king and Premier Adolfo Suarez were informed of the kidnaping within minutes by Oriol's son, who watched helplessly as the kidnapers forced his father to leave with them. His family said Oriol was on an assassination list issued several weeks ago by the Basque separatist organization ETA. The initials stand for "Basque Land and Liberty" in the Basque language. ETA shot to death another of the king's advisers two months ago in the Basque capital of San Sebastian and killed former Premier Luis Car-rero Blanco with a bomb in Madrid in 1973. Oriol, a former justice minister, is a Basque but has never been associated with Basque nationalism. His family said he was forced from his office minutes after he arrived with a police escort to go to work. The family said he sometimes worked on weekends. Four men wearing dark glasses asked first for an appointment. They suddenly whipped out guns, forced Oriol's son and secretary to the floor, then calmly rode down an elevator before driving away in a car occupied by two other persons. The semiofficial news agency Cifra said the kidnapers were presumed to be ETA guerrillas. The action took place only blocks from a dozen government buildings, including the premier's office and national police headquarters. Hours later, Oriol's family said it had not been contacted by his abductors. A political conservative who fought with Franco's forces in the Spanish civil war, Oriol is the father of seven children and grandfather of 17. A president of the State Council, Oriol holds a largely honorary post with little real power in which he gives the administration legal advice. But as a member of the king's 16-member Council of the Realm, he votes on some of Juan Carlos' appointments, including the premier. ETA has staged five political kid-napings since 1970. The first four victims were released unharmed, but Basque industrialist Angel Bara-zadi was killed last March when ransom demands were not met. The political impact of the kidnap- parties, group parties, or just plain good old parties.

U.S. Plans Favorable World Bank Chile Vote MECHANICAL SERVICE AVAILABLE 'TIL 9 P.M. MON. THRU SAT. Highway Handler $ FOR tution, the InterAmerican Development Bank, Congress passed an amendment instructing the U.S. director of the bank to vote against loans to any government that had a record of systematic violations of human rights, except in cases where the proceeds of the loan would go directly to the poorest segments of society. As a consequence, the U.S. director voted against a loan to Chile by the developmental bank last summer. However, all of the Latin American directors voted in favor of the loan, and it was approved. Last month, Henry S. Reuss (D-Wis.), with eight co-signers, wrote a letter to Secretary of the Treasury William E. Simon urging a negative vote by the United States on the forthcoming World Bank loans. Reuss noted the amendment to the InterAmerican Bank legislation and also the fact that "Congress has placed a ceiling on its own direct lending to the present Chilean junta because of that country's repressive policies, torture, and systematic oppression of human rights." He continued: "Although no prohibition exists to limit U.S. approval of World Bank lending to countries like Chile, which so systematically violates human rights, it is the clear intent of Congress that we not support such repressive regimes through any economic assistance channel." (c) New York Timet WASHINGTON - The United States intends to vote favorably Tuesday on two World Bank loans to Chile despite strong pressure from Congress to cast a negative vote on human rights grounds. Gerald L. Parsky, assistant secretary of the treasury for international monetary affairs, said the United States intends to stand by its longstanding position that World Bank loans should not be decided on "political" grounds but only on the economic merits. While the U.S. study of the economic issues involved is not yet complete, Parsky said the "preliminary evidence" is that the loans are sound and should be approved. He noted that while Chile has many economic problems, its balance of payments is now fairly strong, which makes it "creditworthy." The board of executive directors of the World Bank will discuss Tuesday a $25 million loan for various aspects of Chilean agriculture and a $35 million electric power loan. Earlier this year the board had one of its rare divisions on a loan to Chile. The executive director representing the Scandinavian countries voted against the loan while the representatives of most other western European countries and Britain abstained. The loan carried, with the support of the United States and the less developed countries.

Each 11 W Priced from $1,295 to $1,845 If you think of woodworking at an art, you will appreciate the way we create a Kimball console. We work much like the old-time craftsman, except that we deal with larger number. We go into our own forests. There we choose the oak, maple, walnut, cherry or other hardwood we need. And, after it becomes lumber and veneers, we begin to build. Every cabinet part matches in color and shade. That's because it is built from the same shipment of veneers, then collected on a production rack to be finished at the same time. If all this sounds at though it's a lengthy procett, it it. It taket at long at 14 weekt to produce a Kimball contole. But we know it't probably a once-in-a-lifetime purchate and we want it to latt, beautifully, at leatt that long.
