As we started rolling, insani-
ty gripped those who had
missed their chance. Govern-
ment troops opened fire on us.
Somebody lobbed a hand gre-
nade toward the wing. The ex-
plosion jammed the flaps full
open and the undercarriage in1
full extension.
Communist rockets began ex-
ploding at a distance.
OUR PILOT, Ken Healy, 52,
of Oakland, Calif., slammed
the throttles wide open and
lurched into the air from the
taxiway. There was no way we
could have survived the gun-
fire and got onto the main run-
way.
A backup 727 had flown be-
hind us but had been ordered
not to land when the panic

There were 268 or more peo-
ple jammed into the cabin of

Only two women and one
baby among them. The rest
were soldiers, toughest of the
tough, meanest of, the mean.
They proved it yesterday. They
didn't talk to each other or us.
They looked at the floor.
When we touched down the
troops who had stormed us
were offloaded and put under
arrest. They deserved it.
The mangled body of one
soldier, M16 rifle still strapped

to his shoulder, was retrieved
from the undercarriage. He got
his ride to Saigon but being
dead in Saigon is just the same
as being dead in Da Nang.
Over a score of others came
out of the baggage compart-
ment, cold but alive. Somebody
told me that four others
crawled out of the wheel wells
alive. One later died.
The last plane from Da Nang
was one hell of a ride. But the
face that remains is that of the
old woman lying flat on the
tarmac seeing hope, seeing life
itself, just at the end of her
fingertips and rolling the other
way.

Da Nang, once a stronghold
of the U.S. Marines, had col-
lapsed into disorder and rioting,
as the end neared.4
REFUGEES and government
soldiers battled each other yes-
terday to board aircraft or
barges leaving the city as the
Communist-led troops closed in.
Frantic soldiers shot and kicked
civilians to seize an evacuation
plane and terrified refugees fell
off crowded barges and sam-
pans in the harbor.
Saigon officials said a heavy
artillery and rocket barrage
forced Lt. Gen. Ngo Quang
Truong, c o m m a n d e r of the
northern 1st Corps, to leave his
headquarters with his staff.
They said he boarded a navy
vessel that left the port for the
South China Sea. As Truong
and his command staff aban-
doned the city North Vietna-
mese and Viet Cong advance
units entered, sweeping over
government positions, the offi-
cials said.
Also lost in the capitulation
was millions of dollars worth of
military equipment including1
warplanes, tanks and artillery.

AMONG the divisions trapped
and with little hope of escaping
were the 1st and 2nd infantry
divisions, a marine division,
rangers and armored cavalry
and militia units. The rangers,
marines and infantrymen were
considered to be among South
Vietnam's best fighters.
In neighboring Cambodia, for-
mer chief of state Cheng Heng
-No. 2 on a list of men marked
for death by the Khmer Rouge
-left Phnom Penh for Paris
with his f a m i 1 y. Reliable
sources said President Lon Nol,
the No. 1 man on the death
list, also has decided to leave
in a bid to get more U.S. aid
for his country. They said he
has obtained visas for Indonesia
and the United States.
The sources said -Lon Nol
would be accompanied by at
least four top ranking officials
including Premier Long Boret,
f o r m e r Information Minister
Chhang Song, and the two com-
manders of the presidnt's se-
curity guard. They added that
Long Boret and Chhang Song
,would go with Lon Nol 6s far as
Jarkata but then would return
to Phnom Penh, possibly to Er-
range peace talks with the
rebels.

will enter similarly low bids on
their behalf.
"OUR HOUSE isn't really
threatened," says Ms. Snyder.
"In effect, we cen get it back
. . . but if someone comes up
with a $100,000 bid, we just
might let them have it. The
house still has a $40,000 mort-
gage."
She vows that IRS will have
to go through this procedure
each year as long as she lives.
As the Vietnam war dragged
on, the Snyders reconsidered
their political views. In late
1969, they wrote a letter to their
local newspaper in support of a
number of anti-war demonstra-

tions.
Although the Snyders still
consider themselves members
of the United Church of Christ,
the local parishioners, algered
by the letter, asked them to
leave the congregation. Snce
1970, they have irregularly met
with the Quakers.
In undertaking their protest,
the Snyders have made things
particularly tough for the IRS.
Usually the agency just seizes
the amount owed from a delin-
quent taxpayer's bank account
or stock portfolio. But the Sny-
ders sold their stocks anJ con-
cealed all their liquid asses,
forcing the IRS to take property
in order to collect.
