U.S. Tourists Victimised

U.S. Tourists Victimised

On Tuesday of this week an American Warship the U.S.S. Valcour was paid a visit by about 25 members of an organisation known as the "Wellington Front Against Imperialism." These guerrillas carried with them tear gas, stickers and the armour of Marxism Leninism. The advance guard of the group went aboard at about 1.15 p.m. and for ¾ of an hour examined this paper tiger of U.S. imperialism. At 2 p.m. it was announced over the public address system of the ship that all visitors were to leave this ship as there was tear gas aboard.

The activists were ably supported by Comrades Wright and Taylor of the C.P.N.Z. who stood some 200 yards away against the wall and held a banner. There were no casualties among the assault group as they followed the revolutionary strategy of Chairman Mao Tse Tung, however several of them were slightly marked when they got between one of the comrades and the ship when he, the comrade, was throwing a paint bomb. To all of the brave soldiers in this group go out the hearts of the masses. When acts such as this occur the Rev is surely upon us.

The former lecture room K 323 has been fitted out as additional study space for 70 readers. K 323 is on the top floor of the old Kirk Building, near the head of the stairs.

Students should note that there will be no staff supervision of this space, and that the maintenance of conditions conducive to studying will be dependant on self-discipline.
