    THE MICHELMORE MISSION FLEW IN FROM BAU, 20 MILES SOUTH OF THE CAPITAL, WHERE THEY WERE EARLIER MOBBED BY SOME 500 ANTI-MALAYSIA CHINESE YOUTHS WHO SHOOK THEIR CLENCHED FISTS AT MEMBERS OF THE MISSION.

    THE DECISION TO PROCLAIM MALAYSIA ON SEPTEMBER 16 HAS BROUGHT A STRONG PROTEST TO MALAYA, A SPONSOR OF THE FEDERATION.INDONESIA WHO SENT THE PROTEST AND HAVE BEEN AGAINST MALAYSIA ALL ALONG HAS CALLED MALAYA'S DECISION RECKLESS AND PREMATURE.

    THE UN SURVEY IS CONTINUING AND MR.DUNCAN SANDYS OF BRITAIN, THE OTHER MALAYSIA SPONSOR, IS NOW IN KUALA LUMPUR DISCUSSING THE COMING FEDERATION WITH LEADERS OF THE MEMBER STATES.
