    PRESIDENT HABIB BOURGUIBA AND 60,000 SPECTATORS ON SATURDAY WATCHED THE TUNISIAN FESTIVAL OF YOUTH IN THE OLYMPIC STADIUM IN TUNIS. SOME 12,000 YOUNG TUNISIAN MEN AND WOMEN TURNED OUT TO PRODUCE THE SPECTACLE IN THE STADIUM.

    MEMBERS OF THE TUNISIAN CABINET AND FOREIGN DIPLOMATIC REPRESENTATIVES WERE ALSO IN THE AUDIENCE FOR THE FESTIVAL. PRESIDENT BOURGUIBA WAS ACCOMPANIED BY HIS WIFE, MME. WASSILA BOURGUIBA.

    PRESIDENT BOURGUIBA EXPRESSED THE PLEASURE THE FESTIVAL HAD GIVEN HIM, AND SAID HE HOPED TO SEE IT REPEATED IN FOLLOWING YEARS.

    DETERMINATION, FIDELITY AND AMBITION WERE THE THEMES OF THE FESTIVAL. THE YOUNG TUNISIANS PERFORMED FORMATION DISPLAYS SYMBOLISING THE THREE IDEALS.

    THE ASSEMBLED PERFORMERS MADE A COLOURFUL SIGHT IN THE OVAL OF THE STADIUM, DRESSED IN BLUE SHORTS AND YELLOW JERSEYS. A HUGE PORTRAIT OF PRESIDENT BOURGUIBA DOMINATED THE STADIUM.
