(Studio) Eric Sevareid discusses recent political changes in S.E. Asia.
REPORTER: Bob Schieffer

(No location given) Indochina fell to Communists like a collapsing tower - in stages. Communist control in Laos, South Vietnam and Cambodia compared. Present approach to governing Cambodia means country to be returned to an almost completely peasant economy for long time. Politically unified Indochina seems long way off. United States ought to stay out of Indochina's problems in foreseeable future and leave China and Russia pitted against each other.
