6-A Sunday, April 9, 1972 The Shreveport Time jK Of i-WAV--. -i i T" - !-. Spray From The churning waters of Lake Michigan freezes to form icicles on a railing at Chicago's Howard Street beach as a snowstorm of near-blizzard intensity Friday unleashed an early April surprise across northern Illinois. The snowstorm followed a series of destructive thunderstorms and tornadoes. Snow was driven by winds gusting up to 55 miles per hour. (UPI Telephoto) Kidnaper, Victim Fly To Cuba ; SAN JUAN, P.R. (AP) - A gunman kidnaped a banker, picked up $290,000 in ransom, then forced a plane to fly him and his hostage to Cuba where , he is now in custody, the ; Federal Bureau of Investigation reported Saturday. ; Jose Luis Carrion, executive vice president of the Baaco Popular was seized by a gun- man Friday. The FBI identified the kidnaper as Jose Luis Lugo, a former Roman c a t n o i i c Church administrator, and filed a complaint charging Lugo with bank robbery. Clark D. Anderson, special 1 agent in charge of the FBI ' office in San Juan, said Lugo was in custody in Cuba. The State Department asked Cuba to ' return the hostage, the plane, the crew and the money. The plane that took the kidnaper and Carries to Cuba was from Prinair, a Puerto Rico based commuter airline whose president is Carrion's brother, Jaime S. Carrion. How It Happened From accounts of "relatives and the FBI,, this sequence of events was unfolded: Carrion was driving to his office at Banco Popular, the largest in Puerto Rico, whei an armed man climbed in and forced him to drive away. Under duress, Carrion made several calls to the bask, telling officials to get the money. The bank's controller was told to stand in front of the bank with the money. Shortly thereafter, Carrion drove up with the man at his side, took the money and drove away. From there they drove to Ponce airport on the south coast of Puerto Rico and forced a gate where private planes are parked. There Jaimes S. Carrion got in touch with the kidnaper at the airport. The commuter planes have only a 300-mile range. Extra tanks were installed for the flight to Cuba. The plane took off at 12:30 a.m. and landed in Camaguey, in east-central Cuba after first filing a flight plan to Miami and later to Havana. The FBI was called in Friday but did not intervene directly, probably to insure Carrion's safety. FBI agents were reported to have watched from the control tower, armed with rifles with telescop'c sights. New Surge of Violence Belfast Bombers Blast Hotel, Sports Stadium Nixon Lauds 2 Inspectors On Drug Haul KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. (AP) President Nixon hailed two U.S. customs inspectors Saturday who discovered heroin worth an estimated $5 million, saying, "Men like this deserve the appreciation of the whole nation." The two men beside him. dressed in the blue uniforms of the U.S. Customs patrol, stood solemnly as the President described the drug haul they made in Miami last Thursday. "The suticase which they picked up off of an incoming ship had in it heroin, 99 per cent pure, or a retail value of $5 million," the President said. "The estimate is that this is enough heroin to provide what they call fixes for 200,000 individuals." The President praised the customs patrolmen, Philip J. C a s c a v i 1 1 a, 53, and Frank Torres, 24, one day after his press secretary announced establishment of a nationwide "heroin hotline" to combat what Nixon called "the most reprehensible crime I can think of" the trafficking in heroin. BELFAST (AP) - Terrorist bombers blasted Belfast's biggest hotel and attacked a soccer stadium Saturday in a fresh upsurge of hostilities in Northern Ireland. No casualties were reported in the Belfast bombings. But a middle-aged woman was shot in th stomach during a clash between gunmen and British troops in a Roman Catholic district of Londonderry. Three other nersoris wore shnt and wounded during a raid on a DooKmaKer s oince in Belfast, including a 72-vear-nld man Police declined to say whether the bookie raid, one of eight carried out throughout the province, had any connection to the Irish Republican Army. Both Catholics and Protestants voiced opposition during the day to Britain's efforts to settle differences between the rival communities and end the violence that has killed 298 persons in the last three years. IRA Claims Backing , A spokesman for the IRA Provisional wing said ii Dublin that Catholic communities . in Northern Ireland back the group's decision to fight on despite Britain's conciliatory gestures. "The British hope to crush the guerrillas and then impose upon the cowed populace a settlement which will serve Britian's inter ests, not those of the Irish people, he said after a secret IRA meeting. Protestant leader William Craig said his Ulster Vanguard Movement will escalate its battle against direct British rule. He assailed Friday's re lease of 73 guerrilla suspects from internment, as ordered by British administrator William Whitelaw. Terrorist bomb attacks were made on the 13-story Europa Hotel and on the stadium of the Linfield soccer team, a Protes tant club which is champioi of pjortnern Ireland. Cafes, Hotel Wrecked Two restaurants and the lower floors of the Europa. Be fast's most modern hotel, were wrecked. Windows were shat tered throughout the building, Water and electricity supplies had to be shut off throughout tne aistirct. One spectator stand of Lin field's Windsor Park Stadium was wrecked but a . game with Cliftonville, a Roman Catholic team, went off as scheduled. Police said both bombs were planted by the outlawed Irish Republican Army which has vowed to oust Britain in its long-range campaign to unite the province with the Irish Republic to the south. Both bombs exploded from parked delivery trucks. British army bomb experts said the Windsor Park explosion was about 10 pounds of gelignite while the one at the Europa was 30 to 50 pounds.
