Back on the street for only two days after striking, the cabs are forming long idle lines at taxi stands. Walking past them, with noses upturned, ; are their former customers who became s e a s o n e d hoffers during the transportation strikes of the May revolution. Walking hasn't been so bad, a good part of the public apparently believes, especially compared with the rate raises: a short trip costing the equivalent of 80 cents now costs $1.40.

Barnes, 33, of Fort Wayne, operations director of the Air Guard's 122nd Tactical Fighter Group at Baer Field, Fort Wayne, guided his crippled plane to the open spot in which it crashed. Lines, 55, said he recognized Barnes, clad in a flying suit, as a former customer. He said the flier wasn't "even shook up although he hit pretty hard." Lines quoted Barnes as saying the engine "froze up" and he headed it for a place where it wouldn't hit anything. "He knew right where it went down, too," Lines said. "He said between a house and barn and that's where it ·was." Barnes bailed out at about 15,000 feet and came down half a mile south of Fiat, which is about 15 miles northwest of Portland. He was on a flight to check the proficiency of another pilot in another plane. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. Claude Barnes, live at Petroleum, 4 miles north of Fiat.
