The article presents information on the various political issues. Secretary of Interior, Douglas McKay has withdrawn his Department's opposition to an application of the Idaho Power Company for a private license to build small dams and power plants at Oxbow and other points on the Snake River above Hell's Canyon. The Ho chi Minh forces have seized Laos' main riches, the rice crop and the opium crop. They now control the northern section of the country which, if they choose, they can hold at least through the rainy season and probably longer, while establishing an underground with communications to Vietnam and Southern China. Thailand, Burma, Cambodia and the Malay States are threatened and will remain so as long as the Communists are in Laos.
