  • Description

    AFRICAN STUDENTS BRANDISHING SLOGANS SUCH AS "SAVAGES ARE HERE TO STAY"GREETED LORD SALISBURY, BRITISH PEER AND STATESMAN, JUST BEFORE A CEREMONY AT SALISBURY'S UNIVERSITY COLLEGE OF RHODESIA AND NYASALAND, YESTERDAY (FRIDAY).

    THE STUDENTS WERE LINING THE DRIVE TO THE COLLEGE AS LORD SALISBURY DROVE UP TO LAY THE FOUNDATION STONE OF A GBP1,800,000 MEDICAL SCHOOL AND TEACHING HOSPITAL. THEY SURGED FORWARD PUSHING THEIR BANNERS IN FRONT OF HIS CAR.COUNTER-DEMONSTRATORS, ALMOST ALL WHITES, CARRIED RIVAL SLOGANS SUCH AS "EATING PEOPLE IS WRONG". THERE WERE NO INCIDENTS - APART FROM THE YELLING IN UNIVERSITY RAG-STYLE.

    THE AFRICAN DEMONSTRATORS' SLOGANS WERE REFERRING TO LORD SALISBURY'S MUCH QUOTED REFERENCE THAT KENYA'S AFRICAN LEADERS ARE "MEN STILL ONLY ONE GENERATION REMOVED FROM SAVAGERY." YELLS TOO FOR THE GOVERNORS OF THE UNIVERSITY, FOR SIR ROY WELENSKY, THE FEDERAL PRIME MINISTER AND SIR HUMPHREY GIBBS, GOVERNOR OF SOUTHERN RHODESIA.
