COHOESI Crippled Plane Crew Bails Out Enid, Okla. (AP) -- A crippled Navy two-engine B26 plane crashed in an open tield near Vance Air Force Base early today after the pilot and three passengers bailed' out safely. Maj. James Stewart, public information officer at the base, said the plane crashed shortly after the pilot bailed out at 3:30 a.m. The pilot made four passes over the field from 10,000 feet with one man going out each time. The pilot was the last man out. Stewart said, "we advised him of the c l e a r areas around here and he pointed the plane toward an uninhabitated area and bailed out." Names of the men were not for immediate release Stewart said. They were undergoing a routine medical check, but apparently were in excellent condition- The flight originated it North Island near San Diego, Calif., and was bound for Joplin, Mo., Stewart said. The plane lost its left landing wheel in an attempted landing at Joplin at 12:15 a.m., but the pilot gunned the engines and kept the plane in the air. He radioed he would try to land at Olathe, Kan., but found the' right wheel and nose wheel couldn't be retracted. The pilot then headed for Vance with intentions to evacuate his plane and let it crash. He made Vance his destination because the base is equipped with an air-sea rescue unit and a helicopter.

Turncoat Tells Of Hard Times In China Honk' Kong (UPD--A U.S. Army turncoat who returned ironi Red China told today of hunger, hard times and growing hatred for Russia behind the bamboo curtain. Albert C. Belhommc, a Belgian national captured during the Korean war, spoke to newsmen for 90 minutes about his 12 years as a prisoner of war and defector. "I was looking for Utopia and it isn't to be found," Belhomme said, "I think I've stopped looking now." Belhomme married and became the father of three sons, aged one, four and six, during his years in Communist China. The family crossed into Hong Kong yesterday. He said his decision to refuse repatriation after the war was not influenced by brainwashing but by his hopes of rinding "a better society--better conditions than I had experienced in the past." "It was mainly my own quest for a better life and a touch of adventurism," Belhomme said. He was asked whether he had any regrets or remorse. "That's a hard question to answer," Belhomme said. I think it was worthwhile. Although I saw hard limes, I found my wife there and we have children. I would write my family up on the good side of having been there." · The former sergeant told of going on strike for more than nine months at a Tsinan paper mill where he worked as an electrician. He said the strike resulted in an "attendance bo- nils" of 75 per cent of base pay that was given to him and other turncoats employed in the same city. He said his base pay was about S29 a month, but that a Red Cross subsidy, the bonus and other allowances broughl his total wages up lo about $98 a month. This was about four times what Chinese got for the same work, Belhomme said. He said conditions were extremely bad during Red China's highly-publicized "big leap forward" lasl year. Conditions improved in 1963 but probably were still below the 1957 level, he said. During the "big leap" industrialization drive "people definitely went hungry," Belhommc told reporters. He said prices "were horribly high" and "shortages were terrible." 8-31 "White flannels are in again, Alice! Now if we could just bring back the Coolidge administration!"
