    MORE THAN TWO THOUSAND STUDENTS, TRADE UNIONISTS AND MEMBERS OF THE JAPANESE SOCIALIST PARTY DEMONSTRATED IN TOKYO YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) AGAINST THE UNITED STATES' AIR ATTACKS ON OIL AND FUEL INSTALLATIONS NEAR THE NORTH VIETNAMESE CITIES OF HANOI AND HAIPHONG.

    THE DEMONSTRATORS SAID THE AMERICAN ACTION WOULD AGGRAVATE THE VIETNAM CONFLICT AND INVOLVE VIETNAM IN AN ENDLESS WAR.

    HUNDREDS OF POLICEMEN WERE MOBILISED TO DEAL WITH THE DEMONSTRATION.

    THE DEMONSTRATORS ATTEMPTED TO MARCH TO THE UNITED STATES EMBASSY, BUT WERE TURNED BACK BY CONTINGENT OF POLICE WHO HAD BLOCKED THE ROAD WITH A TRUCK.

    THE JAPANESE SOCIALIST PARTY HAS DECLARED ITS INTENTION TO START A LARGE SCALE CAMPAIGN AGAINST UNITED STATES BOMBING MISSIONS OVER HANOI AND HAIPHONG.

    THE AMERICAN SECRETARY OF STATE, MR. DEAN RUSK, IS EXPECTED TO ARRIVE IN TOKYO FROM AUSTRALIA ON TUESDAY. HIS ARRIVAL COULD BE MARKED BY ANOTHER LARGE DEMONSTRATION AGAINST AMERICAN ACTION IN VIETNAM.

    (THE JAPANESE FOREIGN MINISTER, MR. ETSUSABURO SHI INA, SAID ON THURSDAY THAT AMERICAN BOMBING IN THE HANOI AND HAIPHONG AREAS WAS INEVITABLE, AND THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT HAD NO INTENTION OF ASKING AMERICA TO CEASE ITS RAIDS.)
