A picture of Ho Chi Minh is held aloft during Ha noi's May 1st May Day parade. The celebration
centered on the recent fall of Saigon to the Provisional Revolutionary Government.
U.S. agrees to Thai request to

not remove S. Viet.

BANGKOK, Thailand ({) -
The United States agreed yester-
day to a Thai government re-
quest to stop removing South
Vietnamese aircraft flown here
by refugees. But the U.S. carr-
ier Midway sailed out of Thai
waters with at least 25 jets and
fighter planes already aboard.
The new Communist govern-
ment in Saigon, which claimed
the right to the planes, said in
a liberation radio broadcast it
had learned of the removal
from Utaano Air Base and "se-
verely condemns this robbery
hv the Ford government."
OTHER BROADCASTS from
Saigon--renamed "Ho Chi Minh
City"-said the new city govern-
ment will be introduced to resi-
dents at a mass rally this morn-
ing at the metropolitan adminis-
trative offices-the former pre-
sidential palace long occupied
by Nguyen Van Thieu.
Live entertainment and tele-
vision coverage were promised.
Saigonese were urged to bring
pictures of Ho Chi Minh, be or-
derly, on foot and on time.
On the refugee island of Gu-
am, the captain of a ship which
arrived with 5,030 Vietnamese
said at lease 50,000 persons had
been left behind in boats in the
waters off Saigon "howling and
crying, 'Come back! ..." Capt.
Arthur Boucher, of Cherry Hill,
N. J., said people were afloat
in maybe 500 boats and scramb-
ling to get on ships.

continued to fly out of Guam for
the United States. The United
States also launched an airlift
of 985 Cambodian refugees from
Thailand to the United States,
including former President Sau
Kham Khoy.
Thai Foreign Minister Chati-
chai Choonhavan announced
that the United States had
agreed to suspend the removal
of the 122 South Vietnamese
military planes flown here by
refugees in the last days of the
old regime. State Department
officials in Washington later
confirmed it.

aircraft
FS Freedom Fighters were
aboard the ship when it sailed,
but this could not be confirmed
by witnesses.
The United States claimed the
planes because it supplied them
to the former Saigon regime,
but the new South Vietnamese
government also claimed them
as the spoils of war. Thailand, a
U.S. ally that also wants to live
in peace with its Communist
neighbors, was caught in the
middle and decided to hold onto
the planes.
