  • Description

    Authorities frustrated the kidnappers of the Briti envoy, James Cross, today, consistently refusing to meet their ransom demands. So, the terrorists extended the deadline until non tomorrow. Through a flurry of planted notes making new demands, the government stood pat letting three F.L.Q. deadlines slip by without give in. And the life of the 49-year-old career diplomat hung in the balance.

    Police and politicians kept an anxious vigil through the night for some world from the kidnappers. Then, a break...Ottawa police, acting on a tip from police in Quebec, found a note, handwritten in French inside a locker at a city bus terminal. It demanded that Prime Minister Trudeau make a public statement on their demands before nine o'clock this morning. He didn't, and instead headed for his office where newsmen met him
