"I told him twice lo John- son said. But Ihe deputy kept coming "and I just cut loose." Minutes later, Johnson said, he spotted a stale trooper moving through some weeds. Johnson, by thi? time, was barricaded in his home with his wife and 10 chil- dren. The trooper was trying to reach the'fallen officer. "I fired at Johnson said, "but I .was only trying lo scare him."

His wife and 10 inr from small tots Id the middle were in the cabin, making it impossible for the po- lice lo return Johnson's fire. Then he escaped into the dark- ness, with, only business suit and a sport shirt for warmth and his .22 rifle for protection. The children saw him go, think- ing he was going after coal for [he fire. And they saw him come back, handcuffed and subdued. One child rushed! out as her father was being -led away. She shoved 29 cenls into his hand. Moving away-to face charges ol shooting and wounding with to kill, and.facing a lerm for burning the haystack, Johnson bade his children farewell. "I'll see you he said sadly. One reason for a sudden desire or secrecy is that Communist orth Viet Nam may be sending n soldiers' to help the rebels. One ource returning from the valley aid he saw North Vietnamese and there from, Soviet planes and stimated 100 were now in the alley: The U.S. plane, a twin-engine Jakota belonging lo the U.S. Air attache's office, carried laj. Armand Riser of Arlington, who is assistant military at- ache, and a crew of four.- The attache's office reported lie plane was hit in the left en- line.and fuselage by small-caliber ire but made it back to Vientiane ilhout injury lo Ihose aboard.. The plane was flying on recon- laissance at the Laotian .govern- ment's request over Vangvieng, 'a Ullage located in a mounfain- inged valley 65 miles north of Vientiane. Vangvieng is where Capt. Kong -e's .paratroops halted Iheir re- reat 'from Vientiane after being driven out by pro-Western forces of Premier Bonn Oum in mid-De-. cember. They are supported by proCommunist Pathet I.ao guer- rillas. A spokesman for the attache said Riser was flying over a Sovi- et Ilyushin 14 Transport to see what kind of equipment it was parachuting to the rebels. It is not certain the .fire came from the Soviet the spokesman said. But a military expert pointed out that it is dif- ficult to hit a plane by firing.from under .jungle foliage. The Ilyushin 14 is not normally an armed plane, the spokesman said, so it could have hcen that a man was firing from the plane's door or the navigator's dome on top.

Richardson said if Goldfine is well enough lo jc released he may be well enough (o stand trial. Judge Sweeney directed Gold- line be held until Jan. 10 when Ihe court will act on RIchardson'3 motion to determine Goldfine's [ilncss to stand trial. When two deputy marshals rapped on Goldfine's hotel suite door at a.m. a voice answered that Solomon would be back in three quarters of an hour. At a.m. the marshals knocked again, but didn't' get in. At a.m. a waiter arrived ,vith Goldfine's breakfast and he, too, was refused admittance. Then in turn, came the hotel resident manager and the genera! manager. And then Solomon Gold- fine. He finally opened another door to Ihe suite and admitted U. S. Marshal Ralph Gray, three deputy marshals and a Goldfine attorney, Burlon Williams. At p.m. Goldfine came out in custody of Ihe marshals and was taken to U. S. Public Seivko Hospital.
