Exactly what,use may be made .of the U.S. forces involved in the, precautionary moves is still unclear and will depend on further decisions in the .light of the developing situation, informants said. Whether American troops actually will go into Laos .was described as depending upon what the Communists and the pro-Western Laotian forces do in the immediate, future. Offici/ils refused at this juncture however, to exclude the possibility that,.the United-States would intervene directly in the little country. , The first step was taken Friday with the dispatch into Southeasl Asian waters of an aircraft carrier task force of the U.S. 7th Fleet, believed to be carrying 2,000-man reinforced Marine bat talion.

While . officials declined to dis clos6 any of the specific precau tions called for by Kennedy it ap peared likely that forces on Okinawa, U.S. island base in the Western Pacific, are involved. . It was also understood also that elements of the 7th Fleet, which has a total of about 125 ships, are. being pulled together for possible quick movement in the di- rection'of Southeast "Asia in'addi- tion to the task force already dispatched. Both White House conferences ncluded Secretary of State Dean lusk, Secretary of Defense Robert S. Mc'Namara . and Gen. Lyman L.

Officials said the consensus of those at the conferences was that the Laptian crisis has become in creasingly serious in the last 2°4 LAOS CRISIS—Map shows route of a task force of the-U.S. Seventh Fleet, which reportedly is en route to the South China Sea (2) and the Gulf of Siam area (3) near the landlocked Laotian kingdom.

But authorities here privately concede (hat his bargaining position has been considerably weakened by failure of his forces to stand up at any point against Pathet Lao attack. The United States has told Phoumi, informants said, that it considers his past conduct, including his recent handling of government military forces, unwise and it considers its present responsibility to be less to him than !o the people of Laos and to King avang Vallhana.
