    Background: THE BIRTH OF A NEW STATE - MALAYSIA - WAS CELEBRATED IN LONDON TONIGHT (MONDAY) AT A CEREMONY ATTENDED BY MR. MACMILLAN, THE BRITISH PRIME MINISTER. HE WAS GREETED BY THE MALAYAN HIGH COMMISSIONER, TUNKU YA'ACOB, AND HIS WIFE - HOSTS FOR THE GLITTERING RECEPTION.

    ONE THOUSAND GUESTS WERE HERALDING IN A NEW FEDERATION LINKING TEN MILLION PEOPLE OF MALAYA, SINGAPORE, SARAWAK AND THE FORMER BRITISH NORTH BORNEO, NOW CALLED SABAH. HIGHLIGHT OF THE EVENING WAS WHEN MR. MACMILLAN HIMSELF UNFURLED THE NEW STATE'S FLAG, WITH ITS 14 RED AND WHITE BARS, A MUSLIM CRESCENT AND 14-POINT STAR. SIMILAR CEREMONIES HAD TAKEN PLACE IN ALL THE MEMBER TERRITORIES.

    THE PRIME MINISTER THEN PROPOSED A TOAST TO THE YANG DI-PERTUAN AGONG, THE SUPREME HEAD OF STATE.

    THE HIGH COMMISSIONER REPLIED.

    FROM THE RECEPTION, MR. MACMILLAN WENT HOME....AND BACK TO WORK, STUDYING A REPORT DELIVERED EARLIER IN THE DAY BY LORD DENNING, AN EMINENT BRITISH JURIST. 50,000 WORDS LONG, THE REPORT SUMMARISES LORD DENNING'S LENGTHY INQUIRY INTO SECURITY ASPECTS OF THE PROFUMO AFFAIR. OBSERVERS SAY ITS PUBLICATION MAY HAVE WIDE POLITICAL REPERCUSSIONS.
