Shouts Defiance To Premier Khanh, Americans-Viet Cong Agent Before Firing Squad For McNamara Death Try Indiana Evening Gazette, Thurt., Oct. 15, 1964.--7 By JOHN T. WHEELER SAIGON. South Viet Nam (AP) -- A 19-year-old Viet Cong agent who tried to kill U.S. Defense Secretary Robert S. McNamara went before a firing squad today shouting "Long live Ho Chi Minh" and "Americans get out of Viet Nam." Guards dragged Nguyen Van Troi from Chi Hoa Prison to a! nearby soccer field where 11 military policemen waited with carbines. After repeatedly shouting defiance of Americans aim Pve- i mier Nguyen Khanh, the con-| demned youth screamed his final salute to Ho Chi Minh, the president of Communist North! Viet Nam. Troi refused a blindfold, but guards tied one on just before the shots rang out. Order Girl To Hospital For Study HARRISBURG (AP) -- Cressie L. Kearse. 15. one of two teen-age York girls charged with the murder of a store-owner here, has been ordered to the Harrisburg State Hospital for observation and diagnosis." The order was handed down Wednesday by Judge R. Dixon Herman of Dauphin County Court. The action was the result of a hearing on a habeas corpus petition filed by her court-appointed attorneys. Romaine Dawson, 17, meanwhile, continued to await the appointment of a sanity commission- to conduct an inquiry into her mental condition. The girls are charged with the shooting death of Stewart M. Chandler, 55, who was killed in his store last April 6. Newsmen and photographers witnessed the execution, which took place on the same field where Ngo Dinh Can, younger brother of the late President Ngo Dinh Diem, was shot by a firing squad earlier this year. Troi was arrested May 9 while setting a bomb under a bridge McNamara was to cross three, days later. When terrorists in Venezuela kidnaped U.S. Lt. Col. Michael Smolen last week, there were telephoned warnings in Caracas l' r - ' C 'g- ..-".,M *o .yjt tn death unless Troi's life was spared. The American officer was released Monday. Twenty Vietnamese officers and civilians went on trial in Saigon on treason charges, accused of leading the attempt to overthrow Premier Khanh on Sept. 13. A prosecution statement at the start credited Gen. William C. Westmoreland, commander of U.S. forces in Viet Nam, and his chief of staff, Maj. Gen. Richard Stilwell. with a major role in preventing the coup. "If it had not been for the intervention of Generals Westmoreland and Stilwell there would have been bloodshed," it said. The two generals persuaded 1 the rebels not to attack Tan Son Nhut air force base after the air force refused to join in the coup i attempt. Nearly 4,000 Americans are also stationed there. The coup 1 leaders apparently became convinced that since 'Americans would be caught in the fighting, U.S. support would be alienated and the rebel cause would be doomed even if they won. Only 16 defendants were present as the trial opened. Four of the seven civilians are still at large and apparently will be tried in absentia. The defendants were headed by the former interior minister, Brig. Gen. Lam Van Phat, accused of being the mastermind of the coup; Mai. Gen. Duong Van Due, former 4th Army Corps commander; Brig. Gen. Duong Ngoc Lam, former mayor of Saigon; and Col. Huynh Van Ton, former 7th Division commander.
