    AFTER A FULL PROGRAMME OF PARADES, SPORTING AND CULTURAL EVENTS, SENEGAL'S NATIONAL YOUTH WEEK ENDED IN DAKAR LAST WEEKEND WITH A GALA ATTENDED BY PRESIDENT LEOPOLD SENGHOR.

    CLOSING CEREMONIES AT THE DEMBA DIOP STADIUM INCLUDED THE FINAL OF A FOOTBALL TOURNAMENT CONTESTED BY TEAMS FROM GAMBIA AND THE SENEGALESE TOWN OF THIES.

    PRESIDENT SENGHOR PRESENTED MEDALS TO THE TEAM CAPTAINS AFTER THIES HAD NOTCHED UP A 3-0 VICTORY.

    THE GALA ALSO INCLUDED TRADITIONAL AND CONTEMPORARY RIDING DISPLAYS -- FIRST BY SENEGALESE HORSEMEN, LATER BY POLICE MOTOR-CYCLIST TEAMS.

    THE WEEK-LONG CEREMONIES HAVE UNDERLINED THE GOVERNMENT'S CALL TO SENEGALESE YOUTH TO PLAY AN INCREASINGLY ACTIVE PART IN NATIONAL AFFAIRS.
