Inscriptions verso BC (applied label): 23) INTERMISSION IN LAOS: The military band takes a breather in \ between parades in Vientiane. Fanfare and processions are far more to the \ taste of the peace loving Laotians than fighting. Meanwhile, the 14 nation \ conference in Geneva, held up by diplomatic procedure, may be able to con- \ tinue if the Americans and Chinese will agree that no accord on any one point \ will be binding until the signing of the final documents incorporating agree- \ ment on all issues. \ Credit: Nicolas Tikomiroff © 1961 MAGNUM PHOTOS
