    Background: DIPLOMATIC REPRESENTATIVES OF BRITAIN, THE UNITED STATES, CANADA, THAILAND, AND SOUTH VIETNAM ARE MEETING IN VIENTIANE FOR TALKS ON THE CRISIS IN LAOS. AT THE SAME TIME, THE PATHET LAO LEADER, PRINCE SOUPHANOUVONG HAS CALLED FOR A "SUMMIT" MEETING AMONG THE RIGHT-WING FORCES, THE NEUTRALIST, AND THE PATHET LAO, TO RESTORE PEACE IN LAOS.

    MEANWHILE PLANES OF THE GOVERNMENT AIR FORCE HAVE BEEN DROPPING SUPPLIES OF RICE TO REFUGEES IN A CAMP AT SAMTHONG, ABOUT 15 MILES SOUTH-WEST OF THE PLAIN OF JARS. THE REFUGEES ARE MOSTLY MEO TRIBESMEN WHO HAVE BEEN RESISTING THE PATHET LAO ADVANCE IN THE CENTRAL LAOTIAN AREA.

    THE TRIBESMEN, SCATTERED ON HILL POSITIONS IN THE PLAIN OF JARS, HAVE JOINED FORCES WITH NEUTRALIST TROOPS UNDER THE COMMAND OF GENERAL KONG LEE.

    ALTHOUGH THERE IS AN APPARENT LULL IN THE ADVANCES RECENTLY MADE BY THE PATHET LAO FIGHTERS, THE LAOTIAN GOVERNMENT IS CONTINUING AIR ATTACKS OVER THE PLAIN OF JARS. REPORTS HAVE CLAIMED THE NEUTRALIST FORCES STILL HOLD MUONG SOUI -- THEIR LAST STRONGHOLD IN THE AREA.
