    Nearly 30,000 Teagu students and citizens staged a torch light demonstration in protest against two so-called "evil law", the anti-communism law and demonstration control law, drafted the John M. Chang's government.

    In a mass rally held at the Teagu Railroad station ground this evening, followed by the torchlight street demonstration, students and citizens yelled and demanded Premier John M. Chang to immediately resign as most uncapable administration and they also demanded immediate release of ??? who arrested by Chang's police Seoul Wednesday night while demonstration against evil law.

    The demonstrators marched along the streets of Teagu after nearly two hours long rally, with two big straw-made puppets symbolizing ousted Syngman Rhee and Premier Chang meaning most hated men by the people. One student explained that the straw made Syngman Rhee is bridegroom and the other one Chang meant the bride of Syngman Rhee.

    This rally and street torch light demonstration was sponsored by the students struggle committee against the two evil law but attendance were mostly citizens of Teagu.

    In the mean time Kyung-buk Police Bureau had more than two thousands uniformed and plain clothed police on alert to prevent possible occurrence of violence.

    In Seoul, leaders of the Government, including president Yunpo-sun and Premier John M. Chang are seriously studying the booming demonstrations in many cities in South Korea. But Chang is still pushing to strengthen the Security Law.
