She waits in her suburban Belfast home for him to re- vigil of love that police believe is becoming more and more futile with every day that passes. Niedermayer, a 45-year-old West German industrialist, was kidnapped outside his home last Dec. 27. Officially, the detectives on the case say they don't know whether Niedermayer is alive or dead. But privately, they are more pessimistic. Almost everyone connected with Niedermayer speaks of him in the past tense. The only people who keep their hopes alive are his wife and Nie- dermayer's colleagues in the Grundig electronics factory on Belfast's outskirts where he was the boss. Mrs. Niedermayer keeps her vigil in the ranch-style bungalow in the affluent Belfast suburb of Suffolk where they lived for 13 years. "I must stay she said. "I want to be here in case Thomas walks through the door one day. I know he is still alive. I have faith. It's all that has kept me going for the last five months." She has become a recluse, rarely leaving her home except to visit neighbors Niedermayer, who is also the German consul in Northern Ireland, was last seen around 11-15 p.m. two days after Christmas. Two young men knocked on his door and said they had accidentally bumped his auto parked outside. Niedermayer, clad in slippers, sweater and slacks, walked down his drive with them to examine the sup- posed damage. Witnesses said he turned to walk away, apparently after finding his car unmarked. Then the men bundled him into their auto and raced off into the night.

(AP) gangplank of a British lumber camp in noi SAN YSIDRO, Calif. (AP) Fifty-four years ago Thursday, Walter Talbot walked down the gangplank of HMS Calcutta in Montreal and deserted from the Royal Navy Thursday, a British passport in his pocket, he headed happily home to his native land Waiting at London's Gatwick Airport for him today will be his sister Melvina, who was a year old when Talbot, then 18, last was home. Talbot is 73. He has spent the last half-century as Edward Charles Clayton, working as a lumberjack; serving in the United States Navy, running his own radio repair shop, and working for an aircraft manufacturer. Then, last February, he blurted out the story of his past during an argument with his 28-year-old wife and decided to tell the world. In March, he walked up the gangplank of a British training frigate in San Diego harbor. Prince Charles was aboard, and the Prince of Wales and heir to the English throne was reported to have intervened in Talbot's behalf. An investigation showed Talbot served well during hazardous First World War duty in North Atlantic convoys. He was given a British passport and an honorable discharge. Talbot. then 19, deserted on June 6, 1920. while the Calcutta was in port in Montreal. "It was really because I faced another 11 years' service, and I preferred to seek a new life." he said. "If it had been wartime, I wouldn't have done it." He went first to a secondhand shop and bought civilian clothes, then took a job in a lumber camp in northern Que- bec. "When winter came, I hopped a freight train heading across the border into the U S.. and then I bought a ticket on a passenger train for New York City." said Talbot He enlisted in the U S Navy within a week, he said, and six years later he was honorably discharged. For a time, he ran a radio repair shop in New York City. Then he and his first wife, whom he married in 1927, moved to Los Angeles, where he was hired by Lockheed Air- craft Co. In 1943 he re-enlisted in the U.S. Navy, and served with a convoy escort in the Ca- ribbean Talbot's first wife died in 1945, never knowing of his past. In 1964 he met his present wife, Isabel, in Guadalajara, Mexico. They have three Edward. 3, and Marissa, 8 THERE'S ONLY ONE LEADER!
