Join in Proposal
By The Associated Press
The 14-nation Laos Peace Con-
ference unanimously invited the
three feuding Laotian princes to
come to Geneva to settle their dif-
ferences as new reports of fighting
were issued in Vientiane.
The Soviet Union and Red China
joined the Western powers in the
invitation, to be relayed by the
nominal co-chairmen of the con-
ference, British Foreign Secretary
Lord Home and Soviet Foreign
Minister Andrei A. Gromyko.
The three princes, neutralist
Souvanna Phouma, pro-Western
Boun Oum and pro-Communist
Souphanouvong, have- failed re-
peatedly in their efforts to agree
on a government of national uni-
ty for their wartorn nation.
Communist North Viet Nam was
accused anew by the loyalists of.
reinforcing the neutralist-Pathet
Lao rebels behind lines largely dor-
mant since the proclamation of a
cease-fire last May. The commu-
nique named two North Vietna-
mese regiments allegedly moved
into Xieng Khouang province.
Western military men, who have
taken previous charges of North
Vietnamese intervention with sev-
eral grains of salt, said they had
no confirmed evidence of Red re-
inforcements or any major resurg-
ence of battlefield activity.
The one point of agreement was
that there had been trouble, what-
ever its scope, on the Tha Thom
sector southeast of Xieng Khou-
Western sources reported there
was some fighting there, not on
any great scale. The government
said the rebels launched a violent
attack on Tha Thom after Soviet
plans drpped them weapons and
supplies. By its account, rebel 105
m.m, howitzers fired more than 150
shells at the defenders.
United States Army officers in
the field as observers and United
States reconnaissance fliers keep
in close touch with developments
across the jungle kingdom.
The government's communique,
its second of an alarmist nature
within 24 hours, was authorized by
Gen. Phoumi Nosavan, pro-West-
ern deputy premier and defense
minister whose army has been
built up with American help from
25,000 to 70,000 men.
There was speculation among
Westerners that the communiques
were aimed to revive fears of a
new and perhaps broader war in
retaliation for American pressure
on Boun Oum to bow out and co-
operate in the formation of a na-
tional unity government under
Souvanna, the neutralist premier-
Experts said they did not doubt
some North . Vietnamese officers
and technicians and perhaps some,
troops have helped the Pathet Lao
guerrillas, but recalled that inves-
tigation failed to support past
charges of wholesale invasion.
The seven-month-old confer-3
ence has reached virtually com-
plete agreement on a cease-fire
and a permanent neutrality stat-1

points before Boun Oum's intran-

some American and British news-
papers have called him a hypo-

of Portuguese Goa and other ter-
ritories by force.

and a hypocrite. They said I was

One reason India acted in Goa
was that it might become a for-

Portugal was a member of the
North Atlantic Treaty Organiza-
tion and threaten India's neutral-
ity, Nehru said.
Thousands of Indians stormed
into the afternoon session of In-
dia's ruling Congress party and
engaged in an uproarious melee
that engulfed Nehru. Neiru him-
self struck a few blows before
leaving in a huff.
The invaders generally were de-
scribed as mass gate-crashers and
admirers of Nehru who wished him
no harm. But a dagger was found
on one man a short distance from
the platform where Nehru sat.
Thousands of uninvited stormed
into the session, most to get a
look at the prime minister. One
Indian official called the resultant

BONN (P)--The Soviet Union
has handed West Germany a new
memorandum on the Berlin and
German problems, the foreign
ministry reported last night.
A ministry spokesman said the'
memorandum was given to Am-
bassador Hans Kroll in Moscow'
two days after Christmas.
The spokesman described the
memorandum, now under close
study in the foreign ministry, as
long but declined to give any in-

the content already had been made
known to the United States, Brit-
ain and France.

Whether a noble experiment
(it's been called that) or a crack-
pot idea (it's been called that, too)
the Peace Corps is at work.
At long last it is getting the
chance to answer its critics-by
proving itself in the field.
Just a year after it took shape,
the corps has 401 men and wom-
en stationed in countries through-
out the world. There are 392 more
persons in training or soon to be.
By spring they will be stationed
in 17 foreign nations.
It is there, in clinics and class-
rooms, schools and farms, that the
Peace Corps will succeed or fail.

250 have taken the admission test.

SANTO DOMINGO (W) - The
first of the Western Hemisphere's
rescue missions began the explora-
tory work here yesterday which
Dominicans hope will help convert
their nation into a showcase of
democratic cornucopia right next
door to Fidel Castro's Cuba.
The Organization of American
States (OAS) voted in Washington
Thursday to lift its economic and
diplomatic sanctions imposed on
this Caribbean nation during the
dictatorship of Rafael Trujillo.
That day Jose A. Mora, OAS
secretary general, arrived at the
head of a technical team, includ-
ing Jorge Sol, OAS secretary for
In a half-hour meeting, Mora
told President Joaquin Balagner
yesterday OAS felt the Dominican
Republic was in good hands and
"our desire is to work with you."
He offered the fullest technical
assistance to Balaguer, who is ex-
pected to design as head of a new
ruling state council next month in
keeping with his promise to do so
when the sanctions were removed.
Mora's mission is the'first of the
anticipated visits by foreign emis-
saries which Dominicans feel will
make their nation a Berlin-type
showcase in the Caribbean. The
next scheduled mission is that
headed by Teodoro Moscoso, Latin
American director of the United
States Agency for International
Development, is due tomorrow.
Representatives of the Inter-
American Development Bank- and
the World Monetary Fund are
coming after that. ,
Atty. Gen. Jack Gremillion in-
dicated the state would appeal the
decision. The appeal would go di-
rectly to the Supreme Court.
In Washington the Defense De-
partment issued a new directive
aimed- at strengthening equal em-
ployment opportunities in the de-
partment and in companies hold-
ing defense contracts.
The directive requires the serv-
ice secretaries and other defense
agency chiefs to take what were
called positive steps in this direc-
tion. Procedures were specified un-
der which employes or applicants
for employment could appeal if
they felt they had been subjected
Fourteen Negro and white ,min-
isters picketed Burnside Elemen-
tary School in Chicago in support
of parents protesting against com-
pulsory transfer of 34 children to
a school 16 blocks from Burnside.
A group of pupils and their par-
ents, mostly Negro, began yester-
day morning their fourth day of
demonstrating against the trans-
fers to Gillespie School, which is
predominantly Negro. They favor,
transfers to the Perry School,
which is five blocks away and pre-
dominantly white. School authori-
ties say the transfers from Burn-
side to Gillespie are necessary to
ease overcrowded class rooms.
