BLYIHEVELLE (ARK.y OOtttlER NEWS 'Kidnaping' Boils Down to Family Custody Dispute Grandmother Takes Child of Her British Son-in-Law By PIERRE LEGROS PARIS W— The reported kidnap- ing of tin millionaire Antenor Patino's motherless 4-month-old granddaughter simmered down today to a custody fight between the wealthy Bolivian family and their British son-in-law. The young father, 20-year-old hotel neir James Goldsmith, reported last night to police that his baby daughter Isabela had been kidnaped by an "unknown person or persons" from the Versailles hotel where she had been living with her grandmother. The baby, Patino's lawyers announced today, "is somewhere in or "near Paris with her grandmother," a Spanish Bourbon princess who has been estranged from Antenor Patino for years. The lawyers said Mrs. Patino had asked the Paris Civil Court for custody of the child and the case would be argued tomorrow. The attorneys refused to say just where Mrs. Patino and the baby were but added, "we can say they are together." Drops Kidnap Charge In filing Ms own charges in the civil court last night, Goldsmith dropped his kidnaping allegation and protested against "non-presentation of the child." He said he expected a, thorough search to be made for the .baby. : Court sources said after such a charge an investigation was routine. But they doubted any all-out hunt would result from what they said appeared to be essentially a family quarrel. Goldsmith married Patino's 18- year-old daughter Isabela last January after a. headline elopment to Scotland. Her parents joined in pursuit of them, out finally consented to the match. The young couple's baby was delivered, by caesarian operation last May 14 shortly after Isabela underwent complicated surgery for removal of a brain tumor. The mother died a few hours later and little Isabela lived in an incubator for two months. Since then she had been cared for by an English nurse in the swank Trianon' Palace Hotel, near the famous Chateau of Versailles, while Goldsmith was on a business trip to West Africa. Goldsmith said the baby is suffering from anoxemia, a" lack of oxygen in her blood, "caused by the unusual circumstances of her birth." He said she "may die if | not properly cared for." ' Patino's lawyers said Goldsmith End Mrs. Patino had quarreled on what sort of medical treatment she should be given.

They had been nabbed by a Red gunboat while cruising in Applegate's yawl near here. Although they had eaten only broken rice with scraps of fish, meat and vegetables for a year and a half, they did not overeat last night.

They visited with a few newspaper and radio friends and went f to bed well before midnight.
