    THE UNITED STATES NUCLEAR SUBMARINE "SEA DRAGON" BERTHED AT THE SASEBO NAVAL BASE IN JAPAN YESTERDAY (TUESDAY) AND, AS ON ITS PREVIOUS VISIT, WAS GREETED BY NOISY ANTI-AMERICAN DEMONSTRATIONS.

    THE SUBMARINE ARRIVED IN THE HARBOUR DURING A SNOW STORM - BUT CROWDS OF DEMONSTRATORS CAME OUT TO MEET HER IN SMALL BOATS.AS THE 2,552 TON VESSEL BERTHED, A CROWD OF DEMONSTRATORS PROTESTED FROM THE TOP OF A NEARBY CLIFF.

    LATER, A CROWD OF PEOPLE MARCHED THROUGH THE STREETS OF SASEBO IN PROTEST AT THE VESSEL'S ARRIVAL.THERE WAS NO TROUBLE HOWEVER, FOR THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT HAD MOVED TWO THOUSAND POLICE TO THE BASE TO PREVENT ANY OUTBREAKS OF VIOLENCE.

    THE DEMONSTRATIONS WERE NATIONWIDE WHEN THE SAME SUBMARINE CALLED AT SASEBO IN NOVEMBER - AND THIS VISIT HAS ALREADY SPARKED OFF MAJOR DEMONSTRATIONS IN TOKYO AS WELL AS SASEBO AND A THREAT OF FURTHER DEMONSTRATIONS FROM LEFT WING TRADE UNIONS.

    THE LEADERS OF THE PROTEST GROUPS SAY THAT THE VISIT OF THE SUBMARINE FORESHADOWS THE INTRODUCTION OF AMERICAN NUCLEAR WEAPONS INTO JAPAN AND PRESENTS RADIOACTIVITY HAZARDS TO HEALTH.
