UN Questions Laotian Charges That Chinese Invaded Viet Nam; Harris Seeks TV Practices Law

UNITED NATIONS, N.Y., Nov. 6--A U.N. fact-finding group reported today it failed to uncover proof of charges by Laos that it had been invaded by Communist troops from North Viet Nam.

But the four-nation subcommittee told the U.N. Security Council it did discover evidence that rebels in the restive Asian kingdom had received equipment, arms, supplies and the help of political advisers from the Communist regime across the northern border.

The long-awaited report to the 11-nation Council had these immediate repercussions:

1. A U.N. spokesman said Secretary-General Dag Hammarskjold was considering making a visit to Laos, but it would have no connection with the report to the Council.

2. A spokesman for the U.S. delegation hailed the report as one that would "enable the Security Council to better understand the danger that confronts Laos."


Harris Asks TV Law

WASHINGTON, Nov. 6--Oren Harris (D-Ark.), turning off a House investigation of quiz show rigging, said today Congress should pass new laws to assure program honesty and take a hard look at other channels of television activity.

"Millions of Americans have been tricked, deceived and duped by what was nothing more than a sordid commercial scheme," Harris said in closing his House Commerce subcommittee's hearings on the quizzes.

He has heard enough about this type of rigging, Harris said, but recently developed leads indicate other video practices require investigation.

The subcommittee recessed until next month after hearing Dr. Frank Stanton, president of the Columbia Broadcasting System, say there is always the danger of connivance in high-stake quiz shows.

Stanton said CBS is ready to help formulate new legislation aimed at deceit. But he repeatedly opposed any action resembling censorship.
