    Background: THE JUNGLES OF SOUTH VIETNAM ARE REGULARLY BEING "BOMBED" WITH LEAFLETS WRITTEN IN VIETNAMESE FROM L-28 PLANES FLOWN BY GOVERNMENT TROOPS ASKING THE COMMUNIST GUERILLAS IN HIDING TO SURRENDER.

    THROUGH LONG RANGE LOUDSPEAKERS ATTACHED TO THE PLANES, THE TROOPS PERSUADE THE GUERILLAS, WHO HAVE BUILT HIDEOUTS IN THESE DENSE JUNGLES, TO GIVE UP AND RETURN "TO YOUR FAMILIES".

    THE TROOPS ARE ALSO CONSTANTLY ASSURE THE GUERILLAS THAT WITH THE LEAFLETS, THEY COULD GO TO ANYONE OF THE GOVERNMENT OUTPOSTS ON THE JUNGLE OUTSKIRTS AND SURRENDER WITHOUT BEING HARMED.

    THIS METHOD WAS INTRODUCED AFTER GOVERNMENT TROOPS HAVE HELD A SERIES OF DISCUSSIONS WITH AMERICAN MILITARY ADVISORS STATIONED IN THE COUNTRY
