Laos (AP) - A young American engineer who recently completed a two-year stint in the Peace Corps said Friday that he feigned death in a bullet-riddled Laotian bus as bandits searched among the dead and dying for valuables. He said the ruse didn't fool the bandits, but they left him alone anyway. Michael McGough, 27, of Bareville, N Y., said at one stage the killers lifted his arm so they could get hold of an attache case left on an adjoining scat by a Laotian army officer who scrambled out a window. “It was terrible.” McGough said. “People were screaming and moaning. At one stage I was certain I was done for.” The incident began 120 miles north of here Thursday as McGough was riding down a mountain highway to Vientiane from the royal capital of Luang Pra- j slowed down. I couldn’t see ! what was happening but suddenly there were bursts of ma-jchine-gun fire and everyone : tried to crawl down on the floor. “People were screaming. After the shooting stopped, someone lobbed a couple of grenades at the bus. After that there was silence. “Several people scrambled out the back door, I stuck my head out a side window and saw one i of the bandits. He was in a ragtag military uniform and had a rifle. As soon as he saw me he pointed it at me. Ducked Inside “He was only IO feet away. I thought I was a goner. I realized I should have played dead from the start. I ducked inside and a moment later I heard him fire a burst at some passengers who were running away. I could smell the cordite.” McGough said soon afterward two bandits climbed into the bus “They seemed to be looking for something.” he said “I had my eyes closed but I could feel them moving about and hear them talking in low voices. “They seemed to he looking for something in particular and when they found the briefcase next to me they lifted my arm to get ii. They knew I was not I dead but they did nothing to mc.” —Hostages— (Continued from Page I.) inal lawyers William Garber and Hurley. Jones and Gorham were two of the ringleaders in an uprising three years ago at the D C. jail. They most recently appeared before Judge Oliver Gasch. By telephone, Gasch said Gorham appeared for sentencing after conviction on “a number of crimes, including many counts of jail break, conspiracy to jail break, conspiracy to kidnap guards.” The judge said Gorham already was serving a minimum of 73 years imprisonment and the sentences were made concurrent. Gasch recalled that Jones faced prison terms roughly equal to Gorham’s. Officers (Continued from Page I.) tor Woodward at the counsel table during some of the arraignments were Asst. County Attye. F^ugene Kopecky and Richard Pundt. However, County Atty. William Fiches said his assistants probably will not be involved in the prosecution cf the cases, since he is listed as a witness in the indictments. Some of the alleged perjury was contained in statements made during the county attorney's investigation of the police department. Committee Call Eyed on Gurney TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP)-state Republican Chairman L. FL Thomas said Friday that he will call a meeting of the Florida G G P. executive committee if Sen. Edward Gurney (R-F'la.) has not withdrawn from his race for re-election bv next week Gurney was indicted Wednesday on charges cf conspiracy, bribery, perjury and cover-up. Thomas said several committee members had called him to urge that Gurney be asked to step out of the race. But the chairman said he would not speak to Gurney about i giving up tin* race without a formal direction from the committee. “If they voted overwhelmingly to ask him t i step down, I I would go to him.” he added. Envoy Kin Killed William Borthwick, twin brother of the Australian ambassador. was killed as a hail of machine-gun bullets tore through the bus. Borthwick’s wife, riding with him in the front seat, was also killed, as were the driver and a Laotian passenger. More than a dozen other persons were wounded. McGough said he was sitting half-way back. “We were coming down a hill and for some reason the bus Public Safety Commissioner Steinbeck said Thursday The G a z e 11 e stated incorrectly Thursday that he resigned his detective post last year to seek the office he now holds He said his letter of resignation specifically stated he was leaving also August to take a position as criminal investigator with the alcohol, tobacco and firearms division of the treasury department. His intent to leave the city is borne out by his sale of his residence and cabin in May of 1973, he said. You Have Until 11 A.M. SATURDAY To Order Your Action Want Ad For The BIG SUNDAY EDITION!
