Those in the rear of the plane were the fortunate ones, said De ny se Hebert. 26. of Longueuil. Que., making her.first flight. She said she escaped injury because “I was in the back. The people up front were hurt, but the people in back were all right.” It all happened *0 quickly that ML** Hebert didn't realize the danger “We were circling around over New York lor an hour and a half, trying to land.” she said. “They told us to fasten our safety belts: and the first thing we knew, we landed.” The body was taken to O.

Opponents of the measure cited large amounts of aid funds still unspent, disappointment at Communist Inroads in Indochina and the possible loss of huge stockpiles of U.

The cut came despite warning* from administration and veteran Democratic senators that It would be misunderstood by nations looking to this country for anti-Com-tnumst leadership.
