    Background: MALAYSIAN'S HAVE BEEN WARNED YESTERDAY (TUESDAY), THAT THE INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL THREATS NOW FACING THE FEDERATION COULD WELL LEAD TO CHAOS AND END TO DEMOCRACY. THE WARNING CAME FROM THE MALAYSIAN KING WHEN HE OPENED THE SECOND SESSION OF PARLIAMENT FOR THE FIFTH AND LAST TIME OF HIS REIGN. THE NEXT KING WILL BE ELECTED BY SECRET BALLOT BY THE CONFERENCE OF RULERS' IN AUGUST LAST YEAR.

    THE OPENING CEREMONY WAS A PICTURESQUE SCENE OF POMP AND SPLENDOUR. THE GRACEFUL TRADITIONAL COSTUMES OF THE EAST MINGLED WELL WITH THE LATEST FASHION TRENDS OF THE WEST.

    SPEAKING FROM THE THRONE, THE KING PREFERRED TO INDONESIAN CONFRONTATION AND THREATS FROM WITHIN AND OUTSIDE THE FEDERATION AND THANKED THE MALAYSIAN ARMED FORCES AND COMMONWEALTH TROOPS (FROM BRITAIN, AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND) WHO ARE FACING THE BRUNT OF INDONESIAN INFILTRATION IN MALAYSIAN BORNEO.

    THE KING LOOKED ELEGANT IN HIS FULL BLACK AND GOLD CEREMONIAL SUIT WITH DIAMOND STUDDED HEADDRESS. HE ADDRESSED THE GATHERING IN THE NATIONAL LANGUAGE -- MALAY.

    IN THE AFTERNOON, MEMBERS OF THE MALAYSIAN UPPER HOUSE PAID A GLOWING TRIBUTE TO AUSTRALIA'S AID IN COUNTERING INDONESIAN CONFRONTATION AGAINST MALAYSIA. THE TRIBUTE WAS MADE WHEN THE SENATE RECEIVED A SPEAKER'S CHAIR FROM A TWO-MAN AUSTRALIAN PARLIAMENTARY DELEGATION.

    THE PRESENTATION OF FULFILLED AN OFFER MADE TO THE PRESIDENT OF THE SENATE, DATO HAJI ABDUL RAHMAN BIN YASSIN, BY THE PRESIDENT OF THE AUSTRALIAN SENATE, SIR ALISTER McMULLIN, NEARLY TWO YEARS AGO WHEN HE ATTENDED THE COMMONWEALTH PARLIAMENTARY ASSOCIATION MEETING IN KUALA LUMPUR.

    THE FIVE-FOOT CHAIR IS MADE OF QUEENSLAND HARDWOOD, FOUND ONLY IN THE NORTH OF NEW SOUTH WALES AND QUEENSLAND. LARGE AREAS OF QUEENSLAND WERE COMBED TO FIND SUITABLE TIMBER TO FORM THE SIMPLE PATTERN OF THE CHAIR. THE UPHOLSTERY IS OF BUCKSKIN.
