text: (104) Pong-yong was Ang before Longmei.
text: There was a quarrel between Pong-yong - morung (Ang-bang) and the village, therefore they dismissed him and put him into the Ang-ha-bang and sent for Longmien (sic) from Shiong. Half of the men of the Ba-la morung were driven to Wanching, the others mixed with the other morungs, and the Ba-la was given up. (105) When the Government came the people of Balang (sic) were called back the morung rebuilt, and Pong-yong was made Ang of the Ba-lang (sic) morung.
