General Note / OCR

Largest Communist Rice Cache Distributed to South Vietnamese Refugees ; Hundreds of tons of rice, laboriously carried bag by bag down North Vietnamese Army infiltration routes into Quang Tri Province in South Vietnam to support Communist forces, are being used to feed 20,000 refugee families of that province. Nearly 4,000 bags of the rice marked with origin in Communist China were distributed to anti-Communist refugees in eight districts of Quang Tri. The 140 tons distributed by allied forces to date, and estimated to be sufficient to feed 5,000 Communist soldiers for more than two months.
