But one shareholder in the company indicated many stockholders were against paying ransoms because it only en­ courages guerrillas to kidnap someone else. Bernard Frailer, public relations director, said Wednesday employes at the company's world headquarters seemed unconcerned about the kidnap­ ing of John R. Thompson, Firestone's president in Argentina, and the reported payment of $3 million for his safe return July 6. "This thing happened in another country. It's something to read about in the newspapers," Frazier said. Me said it "is possible some stockholders, will ask about this" at the company's next annual meeting in January, 1974. "But that bridge is still several months away." Firestone has 40,000 stockholders and 10,000 employes at its Akron headquarters. One shareholder, former Firestone assistant treasurer Robert E. Linder, said the thrust of comments he has heard from stockholders is: "After the first company gave in, where does it end?" Labor leaders said the kidnaping also caused little visible stir among the 4,000 union employes. "If they were upset, I'd know about it," said William Collier, president of the United.Rubber Workers local. "I don't know much about the kidnaping; I haven't kept up with it." Thompson was released July 0 in Buenos Aires and a Marxist guerrilla group claimed Tuesday the company paid a $3 million "revoluntion- ary tax" to free him. The company has refused to comment on details of Thompson's release. Some 80 kidnapings have been reported in Argentina this year, and guerrilla groups have been paid an estimated $11 million. Insurance sources in Buenos Aires said policies for payment of ransoms are available but that premiums have gone as high as $120,000 per $1 million of ransom covering the top five persons in a company. Frazier said he was unaware of Firestone's holding a ransom insurance policy. READ THE WANT ADS1 O.T. Johnson Co., Galeiburg's Greatest Sforo Sine* 1862! SHOP O.T .'s 10 To 9 FRIDAY & MONDAY.
