In Detroit, the company said Wednesday it would meet the demands. A Ford spokesman in Buenos Aires said "conversations" already have started with the leftist People's Revolutionary Army (ERP), accused in several other kidnapings and attacks. The organization said its gunmen shot two Argentine employes of the company Monday as they left a suburban plant. The employes were Luis V. Giovanelli, a cost analysis director listed in critical condition, and Noemi Baruj de Da Rin, supervisor of social welfare programs, who was slightly wounded in a machine gun attack. The ERP said the shooting occurred during an unsucceas ful kidnap attempt and warned it would make more attempts if Ford did not pay "compensa tion" of $1 million to hospitals, ambulance services and other medical institutions. A Ford spokesman said in Detroit that the company ABOVE ALL ; MAKE IT WHITE'S ROOFING 3424)185 received a telephone call from an ERP representative that led to contacts with the guerrillas. "We have no idea what precipitated the attacks," said Edgar Ri Molirta, vice president of Ford's Asia-Pacific and Latin American automotive operations. "Ford ArgMtlna "had not been contacted Wh, threats or ransom demands prior to the shootings," he said, but added the company received a telephone call from an unidentified man who said more attacks would occur if demands were not met. "The caller demanded," Molina said, "that Ford provide 22 ambulances for each of seven provinces in Argentina and direct donations to hospitals in the area for operations and equipment. "The material demanded is valued at about $1 million. Ford Argentina has responded affirmatively and expressed its willingness to meet the demands. We believe under the circumstances we had no choice but to meet the demands." / Three, more kidnapings were reported Wednesday, raising to 12 the number of persons held for several million dollars in ransom or for political reasons. There have been more than 50 reported kidnapings in Argentina this year alone, with more than $4 million paid in ransom. In one of them, Ricardo Castell, the head of the Coca Cola Bottling Co. in Cordoba, was kidnaped Monday. He is still in the hands of his abductors. , t"" n, i ,i!ll|ll k mm* , „ Photographed byHunteMi SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) - Is it Bigfoot or some guy in a mptheaten, baggy gorilla suit? The elusive Bigfoot, legendary ape-man of the Pacific Northwest, was sighted and photographed, according to a group of professional creature hunters. Actually, they say their photograph is of "Son of Bigfoot," a hairy teen-age monster with silver-gray fur and a mane rising like a Roman soldier's plume from the nape of his neck to the top of his head. That's what appears in the photograph by B-F Enterprises, a Santa Clara, Calif., Corporation dedicated to the capture of a centuries-old legend. The Latest Photo The latest Bigfoot photo- there hasn't been one since 1967 —shows a monster sitting precariously on a rock two- Is It Bigfoot? Parliament Leader Resigns In Growing Vice Scandal LONDON (UPI) - Earl Jellicoe, Leader of the House of Lords and Lord Privy Seal in Prime Minister Edward Heath's government, resigned today N in Britain's fast-spreading sex, drugs and security scandal. Jellicoe was the second member of the Heath government to quit. His resignation was announced only 24 hours after that of Lord Lambton, 50, former Parliamentary Undersecretary for the Royal Air Force. Jellicoe'5 resignation was announced in a letter to Heath made public as Heath met with his cabinet against a background of press and parliamentary rumors that more of his ministers may be involved in Britain's most explosive political scandal in a decade. Jellicoe's letter to Heath said: "When you told me yesterday that my name was linked with allegations about a ring of call girls, J thought it right to tell thirds of the way up what is supposed to be a 500-foot chasm. The location, say Tom Biscari, 24, and Gene Findley, 25, is "somewhere northeast of Spokane, Wash." They won't be more specific because, "It'd be like a Bigfoot convention around there." They are right about that. The hunt for Bigfoot is a 'growing hobby for weekenders and has become a full-time occupation for a handful of adventurers. Indian stories started it all. They tell of eight-foot monsters rumbling around isolated areas of forest and jagged cliffs. Eighteen-inch footprints resembling a man's were left behind by these nocturnal beasts. Sightings Recorded Bizarre sightings have been recorded for more than 100 years.

Heath accepted "with great regret" the resignation, which he described as "in accord with the best traditions of British public life." The warmth of Heath's words contrasted sharply with the terse letter of acknowledgment he sent Tuesday to Lambton accepting his resignation.
