  • Description

    "BEATLEMANIA" STRIKES THE CONTINENT AGAIN, AND IN AMSTERDAM TODAY, (SATURDAY), THE USUAL TRANQUILLITY OF WEEKEND WAS SHATTERED AS LOCAL TEENAGERS CONTINUED THEIR WELCOME TO BRITAIN'S TOP POP GROUP.
    THE ROUTE FOLLOWED BY THE BEATLES MAY HAVE BEEN SECRET, BUT IT WASN'T SECRET FOR LONG. EVERYWHERE, DUTCH TEENAGER SCREAMING ADULATION GREETED THE TRIO AND MANY FOLLOWED IN LAUNCHES AND SMALL GRAFT.
    FOR THE MORE ENTHUSIASTIC DISTANCE PROVED TOO MUCH, AND SAME DIVED OR JUMPED INTO THE DARK WATERS IN A BID FOR A CLOSER LOOK AT THE VISITORS. SOME OF THEIR EFFORTS NEARLY PROVED DISASTROUS, FOR SOME WHO TOOK TO THE CANALS OVERLOOKED THE FACT THAT THEY COULDN'T SWIM.
    FORTUNATELY, AMSTERDAM'S WATER POLICE WERE OUT IN FORCE AND THE LUCKLESS QUICKLY FOUND HELPING HANDS DRAGGING THEM TO SAFETY. ONE OR TWO, HOWEVER, OBJECTED TO BEING RESCUED AND STRUGGLED WITH POLICE AS THEY ATTEMPTED TO JUMP BACK INTO THE WATER AND WERE RESTRAINED.
    APART FROM BEING A LITTLE COLD AND VERY WET, NONE OF THE AMSTERDAM TEENAGERS SUFFERED ANY INJURIES AS A RESULT OF THEIR UNIQUE WAY OF GOING OVERBOARD FOR THE BEATLES.
