    The tour leader, Mr. Cleaver, inspected the anti-aircraft guns and afterwards the visitors joined the North Vietnam women in making the "Black Power" salute.

    Mr. Cleaver said later that the Black Panther Delegation had been impressed with the patriotism of the North Vietnamese and their "anti-imperialist enthusiasm" He said the Black Panthers would report on conditions in North Vietnam when they return to the United States and would do their utmost to condemn President Nixon's Asian policy.
