(AP Wircphoto) Second pilot escapes from Communists BANGKOK, Thailand (UPI) -- A Laotian pilot stole a reconnaissance plane and flew it to Thailand in the second airborne escape from Communist Indochina in as many days, Thai military sources said today. The sources said Flying Officer Sun thorn Kornsikham stole an American-made L19 plane from Savannakhct airport in the Southern Laotian panhandle, and flew it Tuesday to Sakon Nakhon, 400 miles northeast of Bangkok. Tlit sources quuUu Suiillibrn as requesting political asylum in Thailand, but authorities said he was more likely to be placed in a refugee camp. He must first face technical charges of entering Thailand illegally. On Monday, a former South Vietnamese air force pilot fled South Vietnam in a stolen helicopter with his wife, four children and a former air force sergeant. Ho Kim Hai, recruited by South Vietnamese Communists into their air force as a test pilot, was being held today 145 miles southeast of Bangkok at Chantaburi. Like Sun thorn, the escapees will be charged with unlawful entry, but it was expected that after paying a small fine, all seven would be moved to a refugee camp and considered for entry to the United States. Hai said in an interview in Chantaburi today he would seek asylum in the United States. He said his father-in-law and friends are in Florida and Texas. "It was supposed to be a test night, but I just kept going for Thailand," Hai said The American-trained helicopter pilot stole a UHI Huey chopper at Can Tho airbase 95 miles southwest of Saigon, Monday. Hai said he had a letter for the U.S. ambassador to Thailand, Charles Whitehouse, requesting asylum in the United Slates. "I want freedom, I need freedom," he said. He snid his father-in-law is a motel operator in Ocala, Fla. His U.S. army helicopter instructor, Capt. Thomas Horner, was living at Fort Walters, Tex., the last time Hai heard from him, he said. The 30-year-old former lieu- tenant began thinking about his escape about three months ago when he was put to work at the airbase, he said. He finally convinced officials he should be allowed to test helicopters left by pro-American forces. The final plans for escape were made last weekend when he told his wife to lake the children to a field early Monday. He told officers at the base he was taking the helicopter up for a test, prior to a mission by another pilot. Sgt. Nguyen Van Thang went along. "When I got up in the air, I told Sergeant Thang I was going to Thailand and asked him if he wanted to come. He said he did." Thang left behind a wife. Witness says Miss Good threatened Rockefeller By BILL BUCV SACRAMENTO, Calif. (UPI) -- A witness in the trial of Sandra Good,former roommate of would-be presidential assassin l.ynette Fronime. says the Manson cultist once threatened to kill Vice President Nelson Rockefeller. Michael Davies, called a "snitch" by Miss Good because he turned over alleged death threat letters to the FBI, was the first witness in the federal trial of Miss Good and Charles Manson cult associate Susan Murphy. .The two women were charged with conspiring to mail 171 death threats to business leaders in an effort by the Manson lo slop pollution. They were acting as their own attorneys. In his opening statement, assistant U.S. Attorney Bruce Babcock said Miss Good, 31, and Miss Murphy, 33, both zealous environmentalists, sought lo use the letters to create a "campaign of terror" against corporate executives. Davies, a onetime college student, said he talked with Miss Good about the cult and its views on protecting the environment shortly after he met her in August. "Did she say anylhing about Nelson Rockefeller?" Babcock asked. "I asked her if Nelson Rockefeller walked into the room would she discuss her point of view with him," Davies replied. "She jumped up and said,'I'd kill him 1 ." Davies said the women gave him the alleged death threat letters to mail on the evening of Sept. 5, the day Miss Fromme tried to assassinate President Ford. He said he turned them over to the FBI the next day. During a rambling two-hour cross-examination, Miss Good said Davies continued to visit her $100a-month attic apartment even after he had become an informant fpr the FBI. She asked if he feared her. "To a degree," he replied.

SAFEWAY Save At Safeway Severe weather hits Atlantic coast Ky United Press International In the Northeast, a snowstorm caused traffic jams and numerous fender-bender accidents. In the southeast, high winds, rain and a tornado put a damper on Florida's primary election. It was winter weather having perhaps a final fling. The twister touched down Tuesday near MacClcnny, Fla., and smashed an unoccupied mobile home to ihe ground. The same tornado then apparently crossed the Florida border and struck St. Marys, Ga., knocking out the electric and water system and damaging about 100 houses. No injuries were reported. "We saw it pick up i big oak tree, llicn stl it down just like somebody had it by a string," city patrolman Larry Goolshy said. The Northeast snowstorm combined with a bus strike in New Jersey to leave more than 225.000 riders out in the cold Tuesday. The storm dumped about three inches of snow on the state. Additional automobile traffic caused by the bus strike resulted in traffic jams. The snow also snarled traffic and delayed airplane landings in New York City. The National Weather Service put travelers' advisories in effect for slippery roads and police reported ice on major arteries throughout the city. The weather service predicted three to six inches of snow would pile up before the storm ended around daybreak today. New York City's three major airports reported delays in landings but said most departures were on schedule. The storm also hit Washington, D.C., where schools called off classes or closed early in suburban counties. The nation's capital also had its share of fender-bender accidents. Up to two inches of snow made driving hazardous in eastern Kentucky Tuesday night, nearly a week after temperatures had reached the 80s. There was some good news from Michigan. Detroit Edison Co. said the number of homes without power from last week's ice storm had been reduced from 307,000 at the height of the storm lo 20,500 Tuesday.
