  • Description

    AS THE 14-NATION CONFERENCE IN GENEVA CONTINUES DISCUSSIONS ON A SOLUTION TO THE LAOTIAN PROBLEM, AND THE INTERNATIONAL CONTROL COMMISSION CONTINUES ITS FRUSTRATING ASSIGNMENT OF MAINTAINING AN UNEASY CEASE-FIRE IN LAOS, MORE GOVERNMENT FORCES CASUALTIES WERE FLOWN INTO VIENTIANE AUG 25.

    SINCE MAY 11, WHEN THE "CEASE-FIRE" WAS REPORTED BY THE I.C.C., THERE HAS BEEN NO SERIOUS FIGHTING ALONG THE MAJOR FRONTS WHERE THE OPPOSING GOVERNMENT AND PATHET LAO TROOPS HOLD DEFINED TERRITORY. BUT SKIRMISHES BETWEEN THE TWO FACTIONS CONSTANTLY OCCUR WHEN "ENEMY" PATROLS ARE DISCOVERED IN THE TERRITORIES.

    REPORTS OF MILITARY BUILD-UP BY THE PATHET LAO FORCES HAVE CAUSED GREAT CONCERN AMONG WESTERN DELEGATES TO THE GENEVA CONFERENCE - NOW IN ITS THIRD MONTH - WHO FEAR AN ALL-OUT ATTACK WHEN THE RAINY SEASON ENDS NEXT MONTH.
