  • Description

    THE PRIME MINISTER OF MALAYSIA, TUNKU ABDUL RAHMAN AND MR. LEE KUAN YEW, PRIME MINISTER OF SINGAPORE, WERE GREETED WITH THUNDEROUS CHEERS WHEN THEY TOURED TROUBLE-AREAS OF THE RECENT SINGAPORE RACIAL DISTURBANCES.

    IN GEYLANG SERAI, SCENE OF THE WORST CLASH BETWEEN THE CHINESE AND MALAY MOSLEMS, THE TWO PRIME MINISTERS MET PEOPLE OF DIFFERENT RACES AND GOODWILL COMMITTEE LEADERS INSIDE AN UNUSED NEWLY BUILT MARKET.

    THE TUNKU WARNED THE PEOPLE TO BE ON CONSTANT GUARD AGAINST AGENT PROVOCATEURS SENT OUT BY INDONESIA ESPECIALLY TO EXPLOIT THE SITUATION CREATED BY THE RECENT SINGAPORE DISTURBANCES.

    BANNERS AND PLACARDS, WRITTEN IN CHINESE, MALAY AND ENGLISH READ "WELCOME, FATHER OF MALAYSIA" AND "LONG LIVE TUNKU".

    REPRESENTATIVES OF VARIOUS COMMUNITIES HAD HEART-TO-HEART TALKS WITH THE TUNKU ON THE SINGAPORE SITUATION. THE TUNKU PROMISED THEM THAT HE WOULD LOOK INTO THEIR REQUESTS AND THE QUESTION OF WELFARE AND HOUSING FOR THE LOWER INCOME GROUPS.

    AT ANOTHER VILLAGE IN THE GEYLAND AREA, THE TUNKU MET LEADERS OF VARIOUS RACES AND TOLD THEM TO FORM MORE GOODWILL COMMITTEES TO RESTORE INTER-RACIAL CONFIDENCE AND HARMONY ON THE ISLAND. A CHINESE COMMUNITY LEADER LATER GARLANDED THE TUNKU.
