Annxiety mounts for
MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay PA') - Anxiety mounted yesterday for
the safety of a Brazilian consul and a U.S. agricultural expert held by
guerrillas who killed another American Monday when Uruguayan au-
thorities rejected their ransom demands.
Hours passed with no word, as the Tupamaro guerrilla command
apparently deliberated what to do with Brazilian Consul Aloysio
Mares Dias Gomide and Claude L. Fly, 65, of Fort-Collins, Colo., an
American agricultural expert working for the Uruguayan govern-
The leftists kidnapped Dias Gomide and a U.S. police adviser,
Dan A. Mitrione, July 31 and demanded release of all political pris-
oners held in Uruguay, an estimated 150. They seized Fly Friday.
The government refused to make such a bargain, and Mitrione
was found shot to death early Monday in an abandoned stolen car.
The Uruguayan Congress, stunned by Mitrione's murder, Mon-
day passed a measure suspending all individual civil liberties for 20
Meanwhile, the U.S. Embassy shipped to Richmond the body of
Mitrione, father of nine. A U.S. Air Force plane was transporting the
body of the onetime Richmond police chief. The widow and five of the
children were aboard. The four other children live in the United
In Washington, a State Department spokesman said the United
States had urged Uruguayan authorities to do everything possible to
di ress secure the safe return of Mitrione. But, he said, Washington did not
press Montevideo to meet the ransom demands of the guerrillas be-
cause that would encourage more kidnapings.

Cost of letter could rise beyond
8 cents says postmaster general
WASHINGTON (P) -The
price of a letter stamp, likely to
rise from 6 tQ 8 cents early next
year, will probably go even high-
er despite passage of reform
legislation designed to cut Post
Office costs, says Postmaster
General Winton M. Blount.
"We've got the tools to hold
down costs," Blount said in an
interview, "but there's no ques-
tion that over the long haul
we're going to have rate in-
Blount had said earlier he ex-
pects to make use of interim
rate-setting authority granted
the Post Office under the re-
form legislation to raise the
cost of mailing a letter from 6
cents to 8 cents, probably soon
after Jan. 1.
But until Congress passed the
the reform bill last Wednesday.
Blount had indicated the price
of a stamp would stabilize at 8
cents for sometime.
At a, meeting with reporters
about two months ago, the post-
stave off further first-class post-
age increases for several years.
"The situation has chanmed
somewhat since that conversa-
tion,"' Blount conceded. "Like
everyone else, we're faced with
ever increasing costs."
Among these is the $645.8-
millon cost of increasing postal
salaries by 8 per cent, retro-
active to April 18, and compress-
ing the number of years needed
to reach top scale from 21 to 8.
