    BEFORE RETURNING TO LAOS, GENERAL NOSAVAN HELD A PRESS CONFERENCE IN SAIGON YESTERDAY (THURSDAY) AT WHICH HE SAID HE WAS HOPEFUL THAT MEASURES WOULD BE TAKEN TO CHECK 'AGGRESSIVE ACTS' BY NORTH VIETNAM. HOWEVER, HE REFUSED TO COMMENT ON PLANS TO STRIKE AT COMMUNIST SUPPLY ROUTES RUNNING THROUGH SOUTHERN LAOS.
