U.S. General
Cites Danger
In Thailand
BANGKOK (P)-United States
Gen. Paul D. Harkins warned yes-
terday that danger still lurks from
pro-Communist forces in Laos
whose drive, from the north
brought a rush of American sol-
diers and marines here to protect
Thailand's border.
Though the Pathet Lao is no
longer exploiting victories in
northwest Laos, "there's not much
change in the situation which pre-
cilpitated the crisis," said the gen-
eral. He flew here from his main
headquarters in South Viet Nam
on his first commuting trip to in-
spect the Thailand leg of his new
It seemed, though, that 1,800
marines already encamped in a
dusty paddy field amid an im-
pressive display of shooting iron
close to the Laos border were

They have no orders to shoot any
Communists they suspect of slip-
ping over the border.
"The troops do not have the
right to. fire on suspect infiltrators
as of now," Gen. Harkins told a
news conference.
He warned, however, that "the
Communists are in a position to
do what; they did in Nam Tha.
The potential is still there for
them to do the same again." '
Meanwhile the New China news
agency reported a company of
royal Laotian troops attacked pro-
Communist Pathet Lao guerrillas
at Pak Bueng in Luang Prabang
Province and occupied the . area
earlier this week.
The agency quoted a Pathet Lao
radio broadcast as saying the
report came from the Nam Tha
front in northwestern Laos. There
were no details.
Pak Bueng is located in the pro-
vince of the royal Laotian capital,
Luang Prabang. Pathet Lao forces
swept through a large part of
northwestern Laos last week.
There was no indication of pa-
trol activity, and the Marines at
Udon seemed unlikely to have any
problem with infiltrators for the

weapons at an encampment about 30 miles from the La
in Thailand. The Marines were flown to the area Wedn
the request of the Thai government.

HOLLANDIA, West New Guinea
(A)-Dutch troops were reported
yesterday to have engaged at least
200 Indonesian parachutists near
Fakfak, scene of repeated Indones-

had found sympathetic listeners

these informants emphasized it

Washington has been advocating
for years that the Western allies

did not see the slightest hope for
an agreement as long as the Unit-
ed States and Britain insisted on

spection system operating on So-
viet territory.
British delegate Joseph Godber
called the Russian's speech "an
elaborate filibuster"
Dean called for a new effort to
insure that the current Western
and forthcoming Soviet tests
really mark an end to testing once
and for all."
He said the United States was
interested in a Mexican proposal
to set a date now for the end of
all testing. He suggested Jan. 1,
1963, as a possible cut-off date.
Dean added that the United

States would not accept another
uninspected moratorium if no ef-
fective treaty has been signed by
that time.
The three-nation test ban com-
mittee session followed a plenary
meeting of the 17-nation disarma-
ment conference' where the So-
viets opposed a western-backed
Brazilian plan to seek a way out
of the impasse over controls.
Sen. Alfonso Arino de Mello-
Franco of Brazil suggested a sub-
committee be set up to study tech-
nical aspects of controls.

social system."
Djilas makes no point of the
fact that Soviet troops moved in
response to German attack. But
he says in Stalin's defense, "he
was convinced that he was execut-
ing the judgment of history."
He reports that when he saw
Stalin again in January 1948, the
Soviet leader declared GermanBy

make. Western Germany their own,
and we shall turn Eastern Ger-
many into our own state."
Greek Uprising
He further reports that Stalin
said the Greek Communist upris-
ing must stop because it could not
succeed against the determination
of the United States and Britain
to preserve their Mediterranean
line of communications.
Djilas says Stalin related, in that
connection, that after the war with
Japan, the Russians told the Chi-

nese Communists to settle with
Chiang Kai-Shek but the Chinese
Reds fought Chiang instead and it
turned out "they were right."
The writer blames Stalin for the
destruction of millions and, over-
looking Hitler, brands him "the
greatest criminal in history."
