OSI reports in a memo to the Director that Khrushchev's promise to curtail production at two Soviet reactors may pertain to the two new reactors of about 1500 megawatts each, which are known to be under construction at Tomsk and which we estimate will become operational in 1966-67. If this is the case, construc- tion will be suspended If older plants are involved, a reduction in the rate of production will be much more difficult to confirm. 2.

The intensity of recent Viet Cong activities in the delta is beginning to show in terms of overall government personnel losses. A total of 1, 000 casual- tie s for the period 11-18 April - -the highest weekly total on record--was cited today in a Saigon press report, which quoted figures released by a US military spokesman. b. "Accordin g to the MACV weekly report, clear and hold operations are underway in Go Cong and Hau Nghia Provinces. This is our first indication that pacification efforts are actually being carried out in these provinces, although MACV SITREP's have hinted at clear and hold operations in progress. Clear and hold activities appear to be at a standstill in Binh Duong and Tay Ninh Provinces (near Saigon) --in Binh Duong because of a lack of direction by province chief and the ARVN division commander (who is said to have little regard for the pacification effort), and in Tay Ninh because of a shortage of ARVN soldiers.
