    THE MALAYAN PRIME MINISTER, TUNKU ABDUL RAHMAN, ON JULY 25, RECEIVED AN ENTHUSIASTIC WELCOME FROM A LARGE CROWD OF WELL-WISHERS AT THE KUALA LUMPUR AIRPORT ON HIS RETURN HOME AFTER SUCCESSFULLY INITIALLING THE MALAYSIA AGREEMENT IN LONDON.

    THE CROWD, OBVIOUSLY JUBILANT OVER THE TUNKU'S SUCCESS, GREETED HIM WITH DEAFENING SHOUTS OF "FATHER OF MALAYSIA", THE MOMENT THE JOVIAL AND RELAXED PRIME MINISTER STEPPED OFF HIS AIRCRAFT.

    ON HAND TO WELCOME TUNKU ABDUL RAHMAN HOME WERE THE DEPUTY PREMIER AND DEFENCE MINISTER, TUN ABDUL RAZAK, AND MR.TAN SIEW SIN, THE MINISTER OF FINANCE.

    AMONG THE WELL-WISHERS WERE CABINET MINISTERS, MEMBERS OF DIPLOMATIC MISSIONS AND OTHER DIGNITARIES.

    THE TUNKU WHO VISITED DENMARK, THE UNITED ARAB REPUBLIC AND SAUDI ARABIA ON HIS WAY HOME SAID HE WAS VERY TOUCHED BY THE WARM RECEPTION ACCORDED HIM EVERYWHERE.

    "WHILE IN SAUDI ARABIA," HE TOLD THE CROWD, "I HAD VISITED THE TOMB OF PROPHET MOHAMED TO THANK HIM FOR THE HAPPY OUTCOME OF THE TALKS."
    LATER IN THE EVENING A PRESS CONFERENCE WAS HELD AT HIS RESIDENCY IN WHICH HE SAID THAT A UNITED NATIONS REPRESENTATIVE WAS STANDING BY IN MANILA, THE PHILIPPINES CAPITAL, TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE OPINION POLL IN NORTH BORNEO AND SARAWAK ON MALAYSIA WHICH WILL BE FORMED ON AUGUST 31.
