WASHINGTON (AP) - The White Panther party considered, kidnapping political leaders, of the- prominence of Vice-President Spiro T. Agnew to gain release of jailed radicals, a Michigan police official has told a Senate subcommittee. Sgfc. Clifford Murray of the Michigan State police said the kidnap plans were among several courses of action suggested to or considered by White Pantber officers in an effort to obtain release of their, chairman from the Marquette state prison. John Sinclair; co-founder and chairman of the party, is serving a 9%-to-10-year term for violating Michigan drug laws. Murray disclosed the alleged plan in testimony last September, before the Senate internal security subcommittee. The tes- _ timony was released today. Murray attributed his information to "a confidential source who has furnished reliable information in the past." "The recommendation included adopting the style of the Tupamaros of South America, involving the kidnapping of government officials to be traded against the release of 'political prisoners' to the United States," he said.

AGNEW CTV network problems checked HALIFAX (CP) - The Canadian Radio-Television Commission is looking into the structure of the CTV television network. A commission official said Tuesday the study involves the relationship between the affiliated stations and the network. He was speaking after the financial problems of the network were raised at a CRTC public hearing here. Alan Waters, president of CHUM Ltd. in Toronto, said it is clear the CTV network is "having a good look at itself because the direction it is going in right now isn't a healthy one from the financial point of view." Mr. Waters was taking part in an application by CJCH Ltd. in Halifax to acquire CJCB-TV. Sydney, N.S. CHUM Ltd. is a majority shareholder in CJCH Ltd. The CRTC study of the CTV network is being carried out by a Montreal firm of management consultants. It is understood the network is also carrying out a study. James Packham, CTV vice-president, said later that he did not wish to comment. The CTV is a co-operative owned by member stations. trading for Black Panther party leaders such as Huey Newton and Bobby Seale. "The recommendation included the suggestion that with someone of prominence of the vice-president, Spiro Agnew, one 'could write his own ticket,'" Murray said. North power rates must be lowered OTTAWA (CP) - Cheaper power rates are a must in northern Canada to support development of natural resources and should be subsidized by all Canadian taxpayers, the Commons northern development committee was told Tuesday. Alfred Mansell, a member of the Hay River, N.W.T., municipal council, said it is federal policy "that the natural resources of the Northwest Territories and the Yukon belong to every Canadian." Yet the government was about to pass a bill that would force residents of northern Canada to subsidize power rates for smaller communities in the territories, said Mr. Mansell. He was one of three witnesses appearing before the committee on the bill empowering Northern Canada Power Commission to set regional rates. This would allow the commission to take profits from larger communities such as Yellowknife and White-horse and use them to lower rates in smaller settlements.
