  • Description

    ABOUT 1,000 SCHOOLCHILDREN FROM HONG KONG COMMUNIST SCHOOLS PARADED THROUGH THE COLONY'S CAUSEWAY BAY AREA LAST FRIDAY, SHOUTING ANTI-BRITISH SLOGANS.

    THE CHILDREN CHANTED THE THOUGHTS OF MAO TSE TUNG AND WAVED THEIR FISTS IN UNISON. TRUCKLOADS OF STEEL HELMETED POLICE WATCHED THE PROCESSION BUT MADE NO MOVE TO BREAK IT UP. NO ARRESTS WERE MADE. THE COLUMN WHICH STRETCHED FOR ALMOST 200 YARDS (ABOUT 180 METRES) FINALLY HALTED OUTSIDE A COMMUNIST STORE AND DISPERSED QUIETLY.

    THE MARCH CAME AFTER THE PREVIOUS NIGHT'S POLICE RAID ON A UNION HEADQUARTER IN KOWLOON. ONE MAN WAS SHOT AND THREE OTHERS WOUNDED IN THE THREE HOUR SIEGE.

    POLICE ON FRIDAY PUT ON DISPLAY HUNDREDS OF HOME MADE WEAPONS SEIZED IN PREVIOUS RAIDS. THE ARSENAL INCLUDED FRESHLY SHARPENED STEEL SPIKES AND BAMBOO STAKES AS WELL AS DAGGERS AND SHARPENED TRIANGULAR FILES. POLICE HAD ALSO CONFISCATED LARGE BOTTLES OF ACID, DUMMY RIFLES, WOODEN SICKLES AND HOME-MADE GAS MASKS AND GOGGLES.
