  • Description

    Mr. Edward Heath, Britain's Prime Minister, received an Honorary Doctorate of Technology at Bradford University on Saturday morning (30 October). The degree was conferred by Chancellor Harold Wilson, leader of Britain's opposition Labour Party. On arrival at the university, Mr. Heath was greeted by a large crowd which included many hecklers. Several eggs were thrown, and one narrowly missed the Prime Minister. The protest was mainly directed against unemployment and Northern Ireland internment policies. Inside, however, both leaders spoke light-heartedly during the brief ceremony.
