My first faith was in God. My second in the FBI and the police." These were the words of a jubilant mother, Frances Chionchio, for whom nine days of anxiety and agony ended early today with the i safe recovery of her kidnaped in- ifant daughter. The 26-year-old teacher, who has been on maternity leave, said she first learned the baby was found alive and healthy from her husband, Franks who telephoned from SI.

McCormack (Mass), is sued a final report over the weekend picturing the Soviets as per haps l',4 years or more ahead of the United States in space progress. Brooks was a member of the temporary committee as well as senior Democratic member of the House Armed Services Committee. The space committee saw America's extinction as the likely co'st of Soviet victory in the space race. Calling for the utmost national effort, it quoted estimates that even with a thoroughgoing program it will take the United States "at least five years to dose the gap." Different View Vice President Nixon holds a different view, according to information given newsmen Sunday. Nixon, who sits in top strategy (ouncils, says the United States is ahead of the Soviet Union in developing military missiles and is catching up fast in other phases of the space race. Nixon does not think more money can be spent wisely on satellites, He blames on the pre vious Democratic administration what he says is a lag of several years in a U.S. start on developing big rocket engines. Under a massive effort now, he says, this country is fast overtaking the Soviets in rocket power and satel lites.

The woman, Jeanne lavarone, • 43, protested all night that she was innocent. Police said she had been married twice and had eight children, seven of them living and in other homes, including four at orphanages or foster homes. The youngest is 3, police said. A son, 23, died last summer, according to police. No DouM of Identity "There is no doubt, on the basis of scientific evidence, that she took the child," said Chief Asst. Dist. Atty. J Kenneth McCabe. He said the infant, snatched from St. Peter's Hospital nursery 2li hours after she was born Jan. 2, had apparently been kept in Mrs. lavarone's furnished flat in Brooklyn ever since. The woman quit her job as a credit clerk in a Brooklyn department store on the day the baby disappeared, police said. Kidnaper Claims Child Officials said the woman claims she gave birth to the child herself Jan. 2 alone in her second- floor apartment. "She insists the baby is hers,"' McCabe said. He said footprints o£ the kid- naped girl, born to Mr. and Mrs. Frank D. Chionchio, and those of the recovered baby are identical. He also said there was a small mark on the baby's left eyelid, as described by the father. The 5-foot-G Mrs. lavarone, a woman with stringy, reddish- blonde hair and rose-tinted fingernails, held the front of her dark coat over her face as she was taken to a precinct house for booking.
