    THE STUDENTS FROM HIGH SCHOOLS AND COLLEGES IN DJAKARTA, BOGOR AND BANDUNG, STARTED OUT FROM THE UNIVERSITY OF INDONESIA- FIVE MILES (8 KMS) AWAY. THEY CARRIED ANTI-SUKARNO PLACARDS AND BANNERS.

    STUDENT LEADERS CARRIED ENLARGED PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE PRESIDENT POSING WITH THE NOW DEAD LEADER OF THE INDONESIAN COMMUNIST PARTY, MR. AIDIT, WHICH THEY TORE UP AT THE PRESIDENT AND SANG POPULAR SONG TUNES TO THEIR OWN WORDS INSULTING THE PRESIDENT'S FOUR WIVES.
