Deadline The World Around Us A Surprise Landing at Budapest Number 102 EDITORS NOTE This is one of a series of daily reports by our editor on a trip by air around the world B By W EARL HALL UDAPEST Hungary When our Russian plane landed here this forenoon I suspect that my colleague and I on this trip around the world were the first Ameri cans to arrive in this unhappy city by air since the uprising against Commu nist tyranny last October And it a 1 came about as quite a surprise to us too We W EARL HALL were ticketed from Vienna to Kiev Russia ant the announcement that we woulc be sitting down here for an hour was made to us by our blonde frizzyhaired Russian stewardess only a few minutes before oui plane began losing altitude foi the landing In a sense I suppose this sur prise addition to our itinerary was in compensation for having lost out on Belgrade Yugoslavia en route from Athens to Vienna perhaps also for our inability to visit Baghdad Iraq last month Things have a way of leveling out Russ Ski Team With us on the plane was the Russian ski team which at the Olympics wintergames in Italy last year won just about every contest The dozen blueclad ath letes all wearing fur caps had been competing on Austrias al pine slopes again with victory on their side There was nothing about Buda pest as viewed from the air to suggest that within recent days it had been a bloody battleground The red roofs of the homes partly snowcovered and the several bridges across the Danube which separates Buda from Pest looked peaceful enough But at the airport terminal I met up
