Angtlts Times ·'VIENTIANE - For four days · the, seldom-seen 1 -war fronts o 'Laos have been shown to cor respondents. The aim is to con rvjnce -the -world that the Roya fio Army fighls on and that tlx -anti-communist conflict here nl "tliough related to' Vietnam, does -ridl involve Americans in com bat; . The verdict: Yes, Ihe western' .backed -Lao forces do retain i willingness and a capability lo . fight on, remarkably so in cer- taSn areas. --.."But" at 'the same time, the American participation in the ,-war could not be hidden, par- ;ticularly in combat air support al," someone asked. ;»nd logistical .backup without 'which the Lao Army would be ! helpless In the face of Ihe much ', stronger ; regulars North and the Vietnamese communist ; Pathet Lao forces .they are lead' The tour, therefore, was a Standoff. Its Lao government ; organizers, abetted by the ; American embassy here, fear- ;ful of revelations about American involvement at congressional hearings this week, won a !ppint and lost a point. There were surprises along the way even for veteran ob servers. These centered mainly on the technical competence o the fledgling Lao Air Force am on (he professionalism of some Lao Army officers and noncoms. There was one embarrassing day when Gen. Vang Pao, the of mountair followed the so enthusiastically that he denied anj American participation in the war--even as American F-4 Phantom jet fighters zoomed overhead. "What are they doing, Gener- doughty leader Meo tribesmen, government line "Maybe they are bombing the enemy infiltration Vietnam, hut I routes into don't need them," he answered. It has been tacitly admitted jy Americans that more than 200 American planes provided close Vang support bombing for Pno's embattled troops .wo months ago. "General, who provides com- nunicfitions for your soldiers? Americans?" Vang Pao was isked.

In the southern front the reception was more open and there was not an American in found Laos fighting it. On all war fronts the Royal Lao Army displayed captured North Vietnamese. They were all young men in green-gray sight. We were taken on Lao- uniforms with a variety of head maintained, Lao-armed and and footwear.

Actually, there are elaborate radio communications to a far- flung net of outposts, landing strips and lookouts for. enemy activity. "No newsman has ever been allowed into Long Cheng. Could you take us there?" a newsman asked. The ex-French army sergeant did not reply for a moment, and then said smilingly, "I should have one base for me tor privacy. It gives me security Tom my enemies." Vang Pao has a reputation for jeing the most resolute Lao general in the field and for laving a certain independence 'rom the Vientiane government. He showed it later, when, apparently nettled by the close questioning, he canceiced the remainder .of the tour in. the strategic Plain of Jars, fringes of which have just been regain- TV Pn KBTV, C h a n n e l 9; KLZ, C K R M A , C Wednesday, October 22 4.-00-KLZ: Andy Griffith Show driven training planes.
