It was just that I would have liked to stick around a bit longer.' These were Lloyd Oppel'? thoughts shortly after his cap- ture in Laos last Oct. 28, where the young Canadian was work- ing as a missionary with the Christian Missions in Many Lands. He wrote of his ex- periences as a prisoner of war j for five months Thursday in a! bylined copyright story in the Sun. The 21-year-old missionary catalogued his experiences into three Time of the Long March, The Time of the j Hanoi Hilton and The Time of] the Lulu. I The only near-pleasant ex- perience, he wrote, was Lulu. The name stands for the Legen- dary Union cf Laotian Unfortu- j nates. It began Feb. 6 after Mr. Oppel was told he would be freed because a truce had been signed, when be and nine other prisoners taken in Laos but in- terned in North Vietnam were brought together at the Hanoi name given by pris- oners to the major PoW camp in North Vietnam. Mr. Oppel said he End fellow missionary Samuel Mattix of Centralia, Wash., were tied to a fence in a "cute" way after their wrists to- gether in front, elbows behind their backs and their necks in a hangman's loop. "The slightest movement is agony. Particularly as they use a fine wire that bites into your flesh." Even with the discomfort. Mr. Oppel said, their spirits were soldiers started dig- ging two six-feet by two-feet holes behind them. That's when he said he was prepared to die. But it turned oat the holes were not graves but machine- gun nests. Then the time o f the long march began. Barefoot aad still bound by fins wire at the wrists, elbows and neck, he and Mr. Mattix were marched for 3 days until they were deep into North Mr. Oppel developed a fever and diarrhea. They slept on the ground with jungle rats and other night creatures. They starved. When he arrived at the Hanci Hilton, "my belly was distended my feet were just clubs. my eyes slits and folds of flesh just bang round my face." "I learned after my release I had beri-beri and cerebral ma- laria." Mr. Oppel said he received no predication for his illness for the first three weeks, other than some sort of injection "that looked like Coca-Cola." Mr. Mattix's pleas that Mr. Oppel be taken to a British con- sulate were met with jeers by his captors, who labelled him as a U.S. collaborator. He was not tortured, but says he was subjected to "phycholo- gical abuse. Let's not say tor- ture." He was "softened up" by the "closet to lie down in a space just big enough for one man on his back, but with a 16-foot ceiling from which dangled an electric light bulb. "The idea is that you lie at the bottom of this tube staring at the light and get psyched into talking freely about any- thing and everything. "Most of the questioning was done by two plaindotbes offi- cials. "I don't know who they were but... they would ask ridicu- lous questions such as how much money I earned in 1969; how much my father earned last year." This routine went on until the peace pact was signed and he and Mr. MaUix were taken to the back of the Hanoi Hilton where they met eight other Americans who were captured in Laos. One. he says, had been a pris- oner for eight years. "AH had been kept separated from others simply because they were taken in neutral Laos by the North Vietnamese.
