    The Headquarters of the Revolutionary Government at Padang, in Central Sumatra, has been showered with leaflets by aircraft of the Central Office. A cameraman in Padang at the time shows what happened to the leaflets. These are soldiers of the Santong Division based in Padang. The thousands of leaflets dropped called on the people of Sumatra to arrest four Colonels leading the revolt. The appeal was signed by Major Narsono, the spokesman for the Army Chief of Staff - General Nasution. According to observers, the population was rather apprehensive when the planes came into sight, But after reading the leaflets they merely laughed and built bonfires to destroy them.
