ttKA *> CLASSIFIED ADS Extortion Plot Nipped; Arrest Jobless Father CLEVELAND m „ An unemployed father - trapped at a suburban telephone booth—has admitted trying to extort $1,500 from an old friend, police said today. No charge was filed immediately- Arrested was Louis Vincent Cabot, 33, the father of four children Police say he left an outdoor booth at nearby Oakwood village late Saturday with two marked bills in his pocket. , Th« bills — wrapped around a package of waste paper-had been planted there by Louis A. Flack, a home builder whose three voting daughters had been threatened in a series of anonymous telephone calls. William Cooper, a patrolman in the suburb, arrested Gabot as he left the booth. Eight other policemen were in the area and several other suburban police departments had set up roadblocks at nearby key intersections. Flack, who said Cabot "was a friend of mine," called police after 'being told by an unknown voice that "I want $1,500 from you or your kids will get hurt." A later call told him where to deposit the funds. Two detectives helped Flack make up the package .so it would look like it held $1,500 and one hid in the back of his car when he took it to the booth. At the last minute an unidentified man who stayed in the booth for an hour almost upset the plan. Flack waited, however, and deposited the package under a shelf in the booth as soon as the long call was completed. Flack recalled knowing Cabot "practically all my life," and added, "I know he was pressed for money. Just last Saturday he sat in my car and asked me for a job." The two families Jive on neighboring streets about two blocks epart. TUB Mitchum, Semi-Nude Actress Cause Cameramen Casualties CANNES, France (/ft—Movie actor Robert Mitchum said today it was either to be photographed with a buxom semi-nude British actress or Jump into the Mediterranean Sea. He didn't jump. "I had my back to the sea," the handsome Hollywood star told newsmen. "There was no place for me to go b ut to the water •• Mitchum played it suave and debonair a s he shrugged off his experience last Tuesday at a picnic held in connection with the annual Cannes film festival. "If a girl wants to have her picture made like that," he commented, it's none of my affair." The star of. the impromptu production was red-headed Simone Silva, a flashing-eyed, 85-year-old girl whose movie experience thus far has been mainly confined to siioporting roles in British films. Miss Silva—wearing a grass skirt and a scarf top— was poking for pictures on rock? near the sea during the picnic. Mitchum was called over to pose with her. "The photographers got down on their knees to plead with me to take the top off," she told newsmen in London last night. "As long as sex is box office I keep my figure, I'm'out to be th« sexiest thing oh two legs, So I took off the scarf." " In the mad scramble that followed. Miss Silva said, three photographers fell into the Mediterranean, a fourth broke his ankle and a fifth suffered a fractured elbow. Mitchum said he had heard nothing from his studio about the incident—and didn't expect to hear anything. Miss Silva left Cannes a day or two after the picnic. There were rumors—promptly denied by the actress when she arrived in London—that the festival officia-ls had asked her to lake he5 37-inch bust elsewhere. The actress told newsmen she wanted to go to Hollywood and had agreed to the photographers' re- ouest for publicity. Student Drives Car In Bedroom GRACEMONT, Okla.
