  • Description

    Parliament House in Canberra has virtually been taken over by the army for the duration of the SEATO conference. Members of the First Cavalry Unit are enforcing security precautions imposed for the meeting.

    A Parliamentary rule prevents the soldiers from being armed within Parliament House, but all are experts at unarmed combat. People who work in restricted parts of the building have been issued with special lapel badges. Without them, it's impossible to get past the guards. When the SEATO meeting ends, members of the ANZUS Pact will confer in Canberra. Mr. Dean Rusk will remain for the ANZUS meeting.
