  • Description

    KUALA LUMPUR'S PICTURESQUE LAKE GARDENS WAS THE SITE OF A WREATH LAYING CEREMONY TODAY (SUNDAY). THE WREATH WAS FROM PRESIDENT JOHNSON, IN ONE OF HIS FIRST OFFICIAL PROGRAMME FOR THE DAY.

    ONCE AGAIN, STRICT SECURITY PRECAUTIONS WERE TAKEN IN AND AROUND THE LAKE GARDENS TO PREVENT ANTI-AMERICAN DEMONSTRATIONS.

    AMONG THE GALAXY OF DIGNITARIES PRESENT WAS THE MALAYSIAN PRIME MINISTER, TUNKU ABDUL RAHMAN.

    SIX VETERANS OF WORLD WAR TWO WERE INTRODUCED TO PRESIDENT JOHNSON. ON HIS WAY OUT, THE PRESIDENT STOPPED BY THE MALAYAN NATIONAL MONUMENT. THE MONUMENT IS DEDICATED TO MALAYAN SECURITY FORCES KILLED IN THE 12-YEAR MALAYAN EMERGENCY.

    LATER, PRESIDENT JOHNSON VISITED THE MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR MALAYSIAN PARLIAMENT HOUSE. THE BUILDING IS ONE OF THE LANDMARKS OF KUALA LUMPUR.

    THERE WAS FULL TURN OUT OF MALAYSIAN CABINET MINISTERS. AMONG THEM WAS THE MINISTERS FOR SARAWAK AFFAIRS, TEMMENGONG JUGAH (MAN WITH PECULIAR HAIRCUT SOMEWHAT LIKE THE BEATLES).

    PRESIDENT JOHNSON SPENT ABOUT AN HOUR IN CONFERENCE WITH THE MINISTERS.
