Jones told The Associated Press: "I recognized him..his moth- rr is one of our customers...he told me a bit about his experience. " They were more scared than I was,' he said. 'I think they were a bunch of amateurs. One of them chickened out before they made the pickup, he gave up the whole deal.' " Jones said the boy wore a topcoat, T-shirt, slacks and moca- sins without socks, in addition to a blindfold around bis neck. Dr. Rex Kennamer emerged from the Sinatra house at 5:15 a.m. to discuss Frankle Jr.'s condition with reporters. "The boy is in good shape; he's not injured in any way," said tlie Beverly Hills physician who has also ministered to Gary Cooper and Elizabeth Taylor. "He's in bed now and resting well. No harm has been done to him." Dr. Kennamer said that young Sinatra had been given some pills during his capture and that he slept part of the time. Jack Enlratter, a friend of Sinatra Sr., said in Reno, New, that the kidnapers twice contacted the boy's father at the Mapes Hotel in Reno. The second time, Entratter said, they "told him to go to Ron's gas station in Carson City. Sinatra arrived there at 12:45 p.m. Tuesday and the attendant, who was pretty surprised, told him: "Someone's been calling you here. 1 thought it was a gag.' "But it was no gag. The contact man for the kidnapers then called again — either at Ron's or a nearby gas station, I'm not sure which — and told Frank that he should go to Los Angeles and he'd be contacted there "That was the reason for Frank's hurried flight last night to Los Anseles." There had been no breaks in j the case since young Frank was hustled from his motel room at I Lake Tahoe Sunday night by two gunmen who burst in and demanded money. The youth, whose ambition is to pui-sue a career like his father's, was at the mountain lake resort on the Dilifomia-Nc- vada border for a casino singing engagement. He was about to leave his room to do a show- when he was abducted. Monday and Tuesday the FBI, plus California and Nevada law officers, combed the rugged High Sierra area for clues. In Reno, Dist. Atty. William J. TV'Sgio, a personal friend of Sinatra, said Sinatra Sr. re ceived two phone calls at Carson City station from same man who contacted previously. "He was told then of ransom demand told also he would be contacted at 9 that night in Los Angeles at his former wife's home." Sinatra returned to Reno, th?n flew to Los Angeles. At 9 p.m. Tuesday he was contacted at Mrs. Sinatra's home. Arrangements were made for a courier to bring $240,000. At 2 a.m. Sinatra left the home, with the headlights on his car out so newsmen could not follow. He returned 35 minutes later after presumably delivering the ransom. Then, 45 minutes later, Frank Jr. arrived in a private patrol tar.

China's Chou To Visit Albania LONDON (AP) — Diplomats said today Premier Chou En-Lai of Red China will interrupt a tour of Africa briefly to visit Peking's lone friend in Europel, Albania. The diplomatic authorities said the Chinese Communist leader's c a m pai g n to win friends and influence people will take him through nine African countries. Albania is the only Communist nation in Europe to give its full support to the Chinese in their ideological dispute with the Soviet Communists . Unrepentent exiles from the Soviet block, Albania's Communist rulers back the hard line of Peking against the coexistence policy of Premier's Khrushchev. Therefore Chou's appearance in Tirana, Albania's capital, almost certainly could: 1. Have the effect of deepening the Peking-Moscow political dispute. 2. Be regarded as an official blessing by the Peking government for the stand the Albanians have taken against the Russians. Peking has not yet announced Chou's detailed itinerary. But a check among African and European diplomats shows that Chou and a big entourage will be visiting the following: MEETINGS Varnell Rebekah Lodge Members of Varnell Rebekah Lodge, 296, will meet Thursday evening at 7:30 o'clock at the I.O.O.F.

Since Galvao is a militant foe of Portuguese dictator Antonio de OHveira Salazar, the Africans expected him to be a star witness for their cause. Instead he expressed doubt that the Portuguese teritories are ready for independence and also doubt about prospects for African unity.

He spent most of Tuesday conferring with Senate and House leaders. And before calling a day, he traveled to Capitol Hill to drop in on House Speaker John W. McCormack. "A visit with some friends," is the way White House news secretary Pierre Salinger described the meeting—Johnson's second informal call at the Capitol since becoming president 20 days ago. Among the friends, said Salinger, were leading congressmen from both parties. Some of the late President John F. Kennedy's COP critics j in Congress had contended that Republicans were passed over on foreign policy decision and "in only during a D.

JACKSON SOUTH SIDE SQUARE Southern Illinois' Leading Jeweler For Over 43 Years Senate Stops For Eulogies To Kennedy WASHINGTON - ^) - The Senate stops work today for a day of eulogy to John F. Kennedy. Republicans and Democrats, friends and opponents — all drafted tributes to the late President, assassinated 20 days ago on a Dallas street. But the phrases came hard, for so much had already been said. After all, said Sen. Philip A. Hart, D-Mich., no words could match the eloquence of the nrlef on the faces of "millions of the world's peoples." "Surely, tlie name of John F. Kennedy ... has already been consecrated far beyond our poor power to add or detract..." but, Hart added in his prepared speech, "a eulogy day gives us a chance to pour our grief into a common pool where it can be shared more readily and therefore borne more easily." Essentially his own eulogy, Hart continued, is a pledge to support President Johnson In his appeal for civil rights, tax and 1 other legislation as a memorial to Kennedy. The two Senate lenders, Democrat Mike Mansfield and Republican Everett M. Dirksen, also prepared eulogies, although both had expressed their grief j in eulogies shortly atter Ken-; nedy's assassination. I But memorial services in the Senate are always a special occasion. And when all the words have been spoken they will be bound into a volume for presentation to the President's widow as evidence of the admiration and affection in which her young husband was held.
