Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - February 5, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Tuts., Feb. 5, Society for Women Features Mayor's Wife Phones Home, Reports Safe By Robert Gtiimisoii SAN FRANCISCO (UPI) Ma jr Joseph L. Alioto's wife, mysteriously missing since Jan. 20, telephoned home late Mon- day, said she was safe and promised a family reunion. The call to the worried Cali-j fornia gubernatorial candidate came only a few hours after her disappearance from the swank resort at Palm Springs was made public. Outside of saying that "the family will be reunited" Tues- day, Mayor Alioto's office de- clined to give further details or say where the call originated. Mrs. Alioto, 58, the former Angelina Genaro of Dallas, was last seen at a resort col- lage where she had gone with her son, Lawrence, and his wife, Ann, to join the mayor at a campaign appearance. When the rest of the famih returned to San Francisco, Mrs. Alioto, with her luggage in a rented car, said she was head- ing for a resort hotel rather than remain alone in the cot- tage. Public Not Told She said she would return to San Francisco no later than Jan. 27. But then she vanished. Within five days the mayor called Police Chief Carl Huls- lander in Palm Springs, asking that a watch be kept for the missing automobile and his five- foot, 115-pound wife. A missing persons bulletin was issued to California, Ari- zona, Nevada, New Mexico and Texas, but the public was not informed. Some hint of the mayor's concern cropped up when Alioto canceled four campaign appearances and an appoint- ment about city business with Navy Secretary John Warner. Two San Francisco police in- spectors, working on their own time but paid by the wealthy mayor, repeatedly combed the Palm Springs area. Mrs. Alioto, successful busi- ness woman with an antique shop specializing in expensive French furniture, was treated Jan. 17-18 at a Palm .Springs medical clinic because of back pains. Condition Not Serious Her condition was not consid- ered serious and Dr. Joseph Morreale said she had been "in excellent spirits very conge- nial we laughed and joked They have five sons, a daugh- ter and 11 grandchildren.
