On 14 November, a Meo roadwatch team re- ported a convoy of 120 trucks moving toward the Plaine. This is the largest single convoy sighted since the Communists resumed major resupply ac- tivity in late September. Laotian Air Force attempt to interdict the road have thus far not been effective Recently stepped-up Communist activity in the Tha Thom region probably reflects the improved logistical situation on the Plaine. There have been reports of substantial Communist reinforcements arriving north of Tha Thom from the Plaine area. 25X1 In Vientiane, meanwhile, continuing suspicions among the rightist elements have given rise to new coup rumors. Although there does not appear at present to be any solid foundation to these rumors, they point up the persistence of deep-seated rival- ries which keen the government unstable- (Map) a 17 Approved Fv 64 DAILY BRIEF 0130 01-8 25X1 Approved F Guinea: President Sekou Toure's control is threatened. for the first time since Guinea's inde- pendence in 1958. Sweeping administrative measures announced by Tour6 last week appear to have intensified a long simmering conflict between him and powerful mem- bers of the ruling party. Changes included a cabi- net and administrative shake-up, which downgraded or banished to the provinces several important per- sonalities, and a return to full state control over domestic and foreign trade. The crisis may come to a head. on 19 November when the party's top council holds an emergency meeting. Opposition to Tourd may coalesce around Finance Minister Saifoulaye Diallo, who has been number-two man in both government and party and. who is a representative of the Fulani, the country's largest tribal group. In a showdown Tourd probably would receive the support of the defense minister, whose security forces have been playing an increas- ing role lately. criticize alleged discrimination against their tribe. who were dominant before Tourd came to power, also The crisis arises from domestic, economics and tribal factors rather than any discontent with Tourd's increasing Western orientation.

His chief critic, former prime minister Ben-Gurion, resigned from the Mapai central committee on 15 November, after it approved Eshkol's proposal for an electoral align- ment with a left-wing member of the governing co- alition, Achdut Haavoda. Ben Gurion's disruptive activities have shaken the Mapai, however, and may in time lead to a weakening of its dominance of the (nalition_ 17 Nov 64 DAILY BRIEF 25X1 Approved F r Release - 0130001-8 \\\ IMENEMM: Malaysia: Anti-Malaysia demonstrations in two towns in Sarawak on 15 November probably were in- spired by the Communist-controlled Sarawak Advanced Youth Association. The protests were timed to under- cut the federation government's current campaign to emphasize the loyalty of all major communities to Malaysia. The association, with an estimated hard- core membership of 1,500 indigenous Chinese, under- takes subversion largely independent of Indonesia, and is regarded by the UK as a potentially serious threat to Malaysia. 25X1 25X1 25X1 17 Nov 64 DAILY BRIEF 6 Approved F - 130001-8 25X1 Approved For4Wea a 2002/07/23 : CIA-RDP79T 97 W08000130001-8 THE PRESIDENT Executive Offices of the White House Special Counsel to the President The Special Assistant for National Security Affairs The Scientific Adviser to the President The Director of the Budget The Department of State The Secretary of State The Under Secretary of State The Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs The Deputy Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs The Counselor and Chairman of the Policy Planning Council The Director of Intelligence and Research The Treasury Department The Secretary of the Treasury The Under Secretary of the Treasury The Department of Defense The Secretary of Defense The Deputy Secretary of Defense The Secretary of the Army The Secretary of the Navy The Secretary of the Air Force The Assistant Secretary of Defense ( International Security Affairs) The Assistant Secretary of Defense The Chairman, The Joint Chiefs of Staff Chief of Naval Operations, United States Navy Chief of Staff, United States Air Force Chief of Staff, United States Army Commandant, United States Marine Corps U.S. Rep., Military Committee and Standing Group, NATO Supreme Allied Commander, Europe Commander in Chief, Pacific Commander in Chief, Atlantic The Director, Defense Intelligence Agency The Director, The Joint Staff The.Assistant Chief of Staff for Intelligence, Department of Army The Director of Naval Intelligence, Department of Navy The Assistant Chief of Staff, Intelligence, Department of the Air Force The Department of Justice The Attorney General The Federal Bureau of Investigation The Director National Aeronautics and Space Administration The Administrator The Atomic Energy Commission The Chairman The National Security Agency The Director The United States Information Agency The Director The National Indications Center The Director Approved For Rele - 75A008000130001-8 25X1 25X1 Approved For Releaser2eqfh07!StG#& r'99T009 5M008000130001-8 Approved For Release' M 7$.QFf79T00975A008000130001-8
