De Gaulle to Reveal Plan for Algerians PARIS <AP )—President Charles de GiUille tonight discloses his master plan for ending the nearly five-year-old Algerian rebellion- France's top problem. De Gaulle prepared his statement behind a cloak of secrecy at his country estate at Colombey los Deux Kgliscs. This morning lie was to read it to his Cabinet and later broadcast it over radio and TV. Little officially is known of what De Gaulle will propose for ending the rebellion, but it has been disclosed he will "affirm the principle of self-determination." This has been interpreted to mean Algeria's nine million Moslems will be able to vote on how they wish to be governed. Nothing official has been reported as to De Gaulle's timetable for bring- iiiR this about. To achieve maximum attention, the French President has ordered radio and TV channels cleared in France and Algeria to carry his statement. The speech, expected to last about 15 minutes, will also be heard throughout the vast French community embracing 12 scmiautonomous states in Africa and Madagascar. 5 vssJStJSTS-^l Ready if SEATO Acts, Have Plan of Own- Thailand Has Armed Forces That Could Aid Laos Parish Projects Discussed by Men The Holy Name Society of SS.

READING TERMITES NORMAN, Okla. <AP) — Twenty-nine copies of "Our National Forests" had to be removed from the University of Oklahoma library because they were damaged by termites. By EDWARD R. KENNEDY NEA Special Correspondent NEW YORK - (NEA) — The Free World's best bet for military help if it's needed in Laos is neighboring Thailand, a once sleepy little country now awakening to its destiny. The Thais have a vital stake in continued Laotian independence. If the Reds — now reported massing troops in the North Vietnam-Laos border regions — were to take over Laos, Thailand would have a common border with communism. There already exists in Thai Army headquarters a plan to seize all of Laos west of the Mekong River if it looks as if the Royal Laotian army is about to collapse. This would give the Thais a natural and more easily defensible border. The Thai Army can be tough if it wants to be. It has been underrated because of its surrender to Japan in World War II. The surrender was ordered because it was felt the Japanese would have overwhelmed Siam, as indeed, they would have. In Korea, the Thai Army earned the nickname "Little Tigers" with a regiment they sent which fought beside two American divisions. Under an old treaty provision, the Thais^ do not keep army elements on their frontier with Laos. However, elements of the 15 regiment regular army could be easily shifted. More likely would be the employment of the Thai National Gendarmerie. These are police units organized along Army lines for anti-terrorist activities in the border region. They have been trained by American experts in para-military work and have actual field experience in Malaya.* The most famous is the "Black Panther" parachute battalion. The Thai Army is headed by the Prime Minister, Field Marshal Sarit. The marshal has been ill, but is surrounded with loyal young, officers, all pro-American and U.S.- trained. His personal aide is former military attache to the U.S., Col. Chalerm Chai. He told me of the Thai plans to seize the areas of western Laos should it appear the Reds might gain control of that former Thai territory. The Thais have a fine, small air force whose tactical chief is West Point-educated Air Marshal - Daw- ee. They fly F-84's, Bearcats and. F-51's — ideal aircraft for close support and harrassing strikes against guerrillas. The U.S. policy is to seek an end, to the Red aggression in Laos through United Nations action. If that fails, however, action might be taken by the South east Asia Treaty Organization (SEATO) if necessary. The Thais are probably the firmest supporters of SEATO, whose secretary general is Pote Sarasin, former Thai ambassador to the U.S. The other seven SEATO powers have little or no military forces in the area. France has nothing in the area and if she did it would be resented and resisted by her former colony. The British have a battle group including a tough Scottish battalion in Johore, Malaya. Nearest non-Asian troops is a battalion group of the First Australian Regiment in North Malaya. The diggers, part of the British Commonwealth Strategic Reserve, are Korean veterans and have been in jungle action in Malaya recent- They are the best trained and ly. most ready fire-brigade soldiers CHINA fe)NEWSMAP \smm AlWAV'S f, I'R 5 I QUAinViS Penney's saves you money on the latest, most adorable fashions for your little ones!

From their garrison area to Nankai in Thailand, just across the river from Vientiane, Laos, is only three or four days by rail. The Australians could make a major contribution to the tremendous airlift which would be required for operations in landlocked Laos, too. They recently modernized their troop carrier command with two groups of U.S. built C-130 turbo-prop troop transports. Pakistan Is tied down by commitments on the Khybcr Pass and along her disputed border with India at Kashmir. New Zealand has nothing in the area, but would probably offer air support in the form of transport, craft and fighters if needed. Her contributions to SKATO maneuvers have always been naval elements. The Filipinos are well-known and respected in Laos. They have financed and manned Operation B r 0 t h c r h o o d. medical teams throughout the country. Some Philippine troops gained experience in Korae and hunting Huks at home. They would be welcome and do well. The nearest U.S. ready force is the Third Marine Division units on Okinawa. They are neither trained nor in condition for tropical jungle fighting. acclimatized could be expected to perform like U.S. Marines. South Vietnam is not a part of SEATO. but the commitment of their Army in support of Laos has been agreed to on two conditions: 1. If the bulk of the North Vietnamese army is committed in Laos, a tactic the Communists would bo foolhardy to employ. 2. If the Red Laotians, backed by North Vietnamese or Chinese, make advances far enough south in Laos to flank the parallel dividing line which now cuts Vietnam in half. President Ngo Diem will block any attempt, to envelop his left ; flank by giving him a western j boundary with the Reds. j Korea has offered troops for any ; fight agaiiist communism in Asia, but it is doubtful they 1 would be i accepted.
