    Leading intelligent citizens and some newspaper publishers together with over 20,000 Seoul citizens assembled in front of City hall plaza this morning and demonstrated strongly protested series of Russian nuclear tests. Angry citizens adopted a protest message to Russian Premier Khrushchev for recent monster bomb tests and also adopted a messages to Secretary General of the United Nations and to the President Kennedy to holt such explosions threatening the existence of human being, before the street demonstration was started. In the anti-nuclear tests demonstration joined by primary school children, demonstrators held umbrellas over their heads meaning not to get the dangerous radiations falling down by russian tests.

    They carried placards saying mostly "Russian must ban murderous nuclear tests immediately" and "We will continuously fight until Russia holt tests" and yelled their mottoes while they were demonstrating along the streets of Seoul. This demonstration took place when US Secretary Dean Rusk visits Seoul. It lasted after nearly two hours streets march.
