PEACE CONFERENCE:
U.S. Threatens Boycott Until War Ends

WASHINGTON (RP) - The Unit-,
ed States yesterday greeted with
"satisfaction" the calls for a cease
fire in Laos.
But it warned it would join no
Laotian peace conference unless
the fighting actually stops.
The State Department's initial
reaction to the British-Soviet cease
fire call came shortly after word
reached Washington of a new mil-
itary push by Communist-aided
Laotian rebels.
Co-Chairmen
Britain and Russia, as co-chair-
men of the 1954 Indochina peace
settlement, issued the new pro-
posals calling for a cessation of
hostilities, use of a three-nation

commission to check on the cease
fire and a followup 14-nation con-
ference on Laos to start in Gene-
va May 12.
The British and Soviet ambas-
sadors to Washington Jointly pre-
sented the proposal to Secretary
of State Doan Rusk yesterday
morning. Rusk did not reply im-
mediately, but presently intends
to 'go to the opening sessions at
Geneva, officials said.
State Department Press Officer
Lincoln White said "our initial re-
action is one of satisfaction" with
the proposal. But "until there's a
verified cease fire, there's no con-

ference as far as we are concern-
ed," he said, adding:
Always Clear
"We have always made it clear
that there could be no 14-nation
conference on Laos until a cease
fire was called for and put into
effect.
"The (rebel) Pathet Lao this
weekend launched an offensive at
the eleventh hour in the direc-
tion of Vientiane knowing that a
cease fire was imminent. We shall
therefore see whether a cease fire
is, in fact, observed."
Authorities said the cease fire
terms did not provide for a halt
to the Soviet arms airlift to. the
rebels. United States aid to the
Royal Lao forces would not be
called off without a guaranteed
halt in the Reds' outside assistance
to the Pathet Lao, they said.
A high United States official
said the British-Soviet cease fire
call was not wholly satisfactory
from Washington's viewpoint be-
cause it set no specific date for
an end to the shooting.
Rusk and other US. authorities
faced the prospective Geneva Con-
ference with scant optimism. The
Reds have the bargaining cards
stacked in their favor because of
their= strong military 'position in
Laos.
Under a policy of keeping its
powder dry, the U.S. governm~ent
planned to continue its supplying,
training and advising of Lao gov-
ernment forces during the confer-
ence.

LONDON-A Laborite minority
last night proposed in Parliament
a motion congratulating Fidel Cas-

States' role in the attack.
Among the signers was tom Dri-

national executive, and onetime
government minister John Dug-
dale. There was no indication the
motion had official party backing,
or how many backers it had.
But if presented on the floor of
the House of Commons, it would
probably meet defeat.

Truee Call

On Armistice Timing
LONDON (P)-A long-awaited
appeal for a cease fire in Laos
was issued yesterday by Britain
and the Soviet Union as a pre-
lude to what is certain to be
months of hard bargaining with
the Communists on the political
future of the divided southeast
Asian kingdom.
The appeal was directed at the
torn nation's major warring fac-
tions-the Pathet Lao rebels, sup-
ported and supplied by Commu-
nists, and the pro-Western gov-
ernment in Vientiane, backed by
the United States.
Request for India
Althougth the appeal did not ask
for a cease fire immediately, as
the West had demanded, it was
accompanied by a request for
India to call a meeting of a truce
commission for Laos. The com-
mission, headed by India, with
Canada and Poland as the other
two members, scheduled its first
meeting in New Delhi Friday.
The truce commission repre-
sented the second step in the
Laos peace plan. The third will
be a 14-nation conference on a
permanent political settlement in
Laos, to open in Geneva May 12.
The main sticking point in
working out the arrangements was
the timing of a cease fire. The
Russians wanted the talking to
start before the fighting stopped,
a tactic used with success by the
Communists in Korea and Indo-
china.
Instruct Commission
The British and Soviet govern-
ments instructed the truce com-
mission first to discuss its own
functions, then to report to Lon-
don and Moscow for "directions
on going to Laos to carry out
the work of controlling the cease
fire."
This procedure seems to indi-
cate some time will elapse before
the cease fire is verified. But the
British government, in a state-
ment to Parliament, specified that
it would have to be satisfied a
cease fire was being observed be-
fore its representatives sit down
at the conference table in Gene-
va.
Folk Singers
Demonstrate.
NEW YORK-Some 2,000 folk-
song fans jammed a street near
Washington Square Park Sunday,
protesting the new ruling two
weeks ago by New York Park
Commissioner Newbold Morris that
the traditional Sunday singing is
now banned in the park.
Folk singers strummed banjos
and guitars and warbled new lyrics
to old tunes, such as "Npwbold
Morris is a grizzly bear."

VIENTIANE (P)-Hundreds of
government troops were airlifted
to the front north of Vientiane
yesterday to shore up crumbling
defenses against the pro-Commu-
nist rebels in the final hours be-
fore a ceasefire in the civil war.
Pathet Lao rebels pushed south-.
ward along the main north-south
highway during the weekend,
sending royal army troops into a
headlong retreat of 30 to 40 miles.
Three American military advis-
ers may have been captured in the
rebel thrust to Vang Vieng, a ma-
jor government military headquar-
ters 80 miles north of here on
the Vientiane - Luang Prabang
highway linking the administra-
tive and royal capitals.
Nevertheless, United States heli-
copters shuttled troops in battal-
ion strength to Vang Khy, a small
town on the north-south road. In
the uncertain military situation
this was encouraging. Vang Khy
lies 10 miles north of the spot at
which government troops had
been expected to halt their re-
treat.
Prince Souvanna Phouma, the

"neutralist" Laotian leader recog-
nized by the Communists as still
the legal premier of his country,
said in Peiping Sunday that his
people count on the Communist
and neutral nations to help restore
peace in Laos. Souvanna, who has
been touring West European and

dence. killed five 'million Jews."
