    Background: THOUSANDS OF INDONESIAN JOINED PRESIDENT ACHMED SUKARNO AT A MILITARY PARADE IN DJAKARTA YESTERDAY (MONDAY) MARKING THE 19TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE INDONESIAN REVOLUTION.

    THE PARADE WAS HELD IN THE CAPITAL'S MERDEKA (FREEDOM) SQUARE, WHERE THE INDONESIAN LEADER OPENED THE NATIONAL MONUMENT, BUILT BY INDONESIAN ARMY ENGINEERS.

    HIS GUEST AT THE RALLY WAS CAMBODIA'S PRINCE NORODOM SIHANOUK, WHO TOGETHER WITH HIS WIFE IS ON A WEEK'S OFFICIAL VISIT TO THE COUNTRY. DR SUBANDRIO, THE INDONESIAN MINISTER, AND GENERAL NASUTION, THE DEFENCE MINISTER, WERE ALSO THERE.

    PRESIDENT SUKARNO RENEWED HIS PLEDGE TO "CRUSH" THE FEDERATION OF MALAYSIA, BUT AT THE SAME TIME CALLED FOR FRESH TALKS ON THE BORNEO QUESTION, ONE OF THE MAIN ISSUES IN THE MALAYSIAN DISPUTE.

    (AT THE SAME TIME ALSO, IN KUALA LUMPUR, THE MALAYSIAN CAPITAL, IT WAS ANNOUNCED THAT A PARTY OF INDONESIAN RAIDERS HAD LANDED IN SOUTH MALAYA. THEY WERE ATTACKED BY FEDERAL TROOPS, AND AT LEAST TWO OF THE RAIDERS WERE KILLED AND 16 CAPTURED.)
    TO OPEN THE NATIONAL MONUMENT, PRESIDENT SUKARNO BOARDED A STEAMROLLER AND DROVE IT THROUGH A METAL CHAIN SURROUNDING THE PLINTH. GENERAL NASUTION, ON ANOTHER STEAMROLLER, DID LIKEWISE AS HUNDREDS OF BALLOONS WERE RELEASED.
