Italian gang attacks

GENOA, Italy (AP) - An ambush
team using silencer-equipped revolvers
shot and wounded a lea ding in-
dustrialist in this north Italian port city
yesterday in what was claimed to be the
latest attack by the Red Brigades, the
terrorist gang holding former Premier
Aldo Moro.
Felice Schiavetti, 51, president of the
Genoa Industrialists' Association, was
gunned down from behind by two young
men on a street as he left home for his
machinery company. His assailants
IT APPEARED, meanwhile,
that the widespread police man-
hunt for Moro may have

driven other kidnappers deeper un-
derground in this abduction-plagued
country. Relatives of victims were
making public appeals to kidnappers to
contact them.
In a Rome newspaper ad, the wife of
Duke Massimiliano Grazioli, who was
abducted last Nov. 7, said she had been
paid an undisclosed amount in ransom
last 'month but her husband had not'
been freed.
"Even if in the last few weeks police
controls have increased, you were
bound at least to give us a sign that
Massimiliano is still alive," she ap-
pealed to his captors.
A ROME moviehouse owner made a

similar plea through an Italian news
agency to the kidnappers of his 19-year-
old daughter, grabbed in front of the
family two months ago.
Police reported no new breaks in the
three-week-old search for Moro abd his
abductors. Investigators announced
that four leftist extremists arrested in a
beach villa near Naples on Thursday
would be taken to Rome for
Police said Schiavetti's attackers,
between 20 and 30 years old and
wearing dark green raincoats, fired six
shots, hitting him in the legs and right

pain in the legs," the father of seven
said from his hospital bed.
"They did not certainly intend to
strike me as a person but for the office I
hold," he said. "For some time they
had been speaking of the industrialists'
association in their leaflets. But it is
necessary to stay calm. We must con-
tinue to carry out our duty. It is the only
way to defeat them."
Thirty minutes after the ambush, a
man calleda newspaper here and said:
"This is the Red Brigades. An armed
group has shot Felice Schiavetti, ser-
vant of the state."
THE MARXIST revolutionary Red
Brigades, believed to number several
hundred, have mounted an escalating
campaign of terror against
businessmen, political leaders and
police in recent years. The March 16
abduction of Moro and other recent at-
tacks appeared aimed at forcing the
release of Red Brigades leaders on trial
in Turin.
Moro's wife yesterday made the
family's first public statement since the
kidnapping, saying in a front-page let-
ter in the Milan newspaper I1 Giorno
she hoped her husband would be freed
but that "we unhappily have no sign to
comfort our hope."
"We would like, however, that he
should know that we are close to him,
that we live with him, moment by
moment, the hours of these very long
days, that we pray with him, that
having, despite everything, confidence
in men, we believe that it may still be
possible, after so much pain, to em-
brace him again."

Scalp massage?
No, this is not a glorified head-rub. Rather, it is the formal in-
stallation of Wallace Spencer, center, as president of the Reorganized
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The laying on of hands
took place yesterday in Independence, Mo.

Harry Hoover says he knows a rodeo clown who wants to buy his
yak if only he can catch the beast. The yak is up for sale as part of
Hoover's elimination of a small zoo he had collected to exhibit at a nor-
theast Alabama. Hoover has been trying to open the cave to the public,
but the federal government says it contains an endangered species of
bats. So, Hoover is liquidating five ponies, two elk, a donkey, several
birds and the yak that he's priced at $750. "A yal is normally calm and
quiet, like a buffalo, but not when he gets excited like when somebody
wants to catch him," Hoover said. "And that clown really wants him."
