Almost simultaneously, a woman's voice called the school authorities and said a taxi would arrive soon to pick up the boy. Cab driver Bert Walowjtz. 24. was sent to the school and picked up the boy. One member of the gang must, have watched him because a telephone call then went lo the father's office in downtown Miami. The caller told Daniel Richter he had Ricky in his custody and box holders. People who get their mail in rural'boxes don't get much mail, he said, and read thoroughly what they do get. He said people vote with their hearts not their heads,-and "they care-little lor issues.

"I told him the most I could raise was about $15,000 in jewels and $200 in cash He said that would do." Richter went to the hotel and waited in the booth.

"If those old, worn out, gold brick pilots in Texas . . . had Lhe proper leadership," he said, ".. . they would never have puller] their so-called sitdown strike." Vandenberg. Air Force chief of staff, commented on a more general situation. He said a "small" number of airmen "is not indicative of any thing as great as it seems to appear on the surface." He added that, the Air Force stopped calling reservists involuntarily five months ago and' expected the situation to ease. In Merced, Calif., Frank C. Hilton of Reading. Pa., national commander of the Veterans of Foreign Wars, said punishment of such men was tragic. Hilton blamed the country's state of unprepared- ness after World War III and told a public meeting: "We have had to call back men who flew and served their country and were just getting themselves t established in normal civilian life.
