    Background: IN DJAKARTA, ANGER HAS BEEN RUNNING HIGH AGAINST INDONESIA'S COMMUNIST PARTY (PKI). AFTER LAST MONTH'S ATTEMPTED COUP, THE ARMY WAS ARRESTED OVER 1500 OF THE PARTY'S THREE MILLION MEMBERS AND A HUGE RALLY IN DJAKARTA DEMANDED THE REMOVAL OF ALL COMMUNISTS FROM THE CABINET AND STATE ENTERPRISES.

    IN A SERIES OF DEMONSTRATIONS ABOUT TWO-THOUSAND MEMBERS OF MOSLEM, PROTESTANT AND CATHOLIC POLITICAL PARTIES CALLED FRO THE BANNING OF THE PKI. LATER THE PKI HEADQUARTERS WAS SET ON FIRE AND DEMONSTRATORS TORE DOWN THE HOUSE OF PKI PARTY CHAIRMAN MR D.N.AIDIT WHO REPORTEDLY DISAPPEARED AFTER THE COUP ATTEMPT.

    POLICE AND TROOPS HAVE BEEN KEEPING UP AN INTENSE SEARCH FOR WEAPONS SAID TO HAVE BEEN HANDED OUT BY DISSIDENT AIRFORCE MAN, BUT ONLY A QUARTER OF THOSE DISTRIBUTED HAVE SO FAR BEEN RECOVERED -- ABOUT 400 RIFLES, PISTOLS, STENGUNS AND KNIVES TOGETHER WITH THOUSANDS OF ROUNDS OF AMMUNITION.

    THE SOVIET UNION HAS EXPRESSED CONCERN ABOUT EVENTS IN INDONESIA. YESTERDAY (MONDAY), THE SOVIET LEADERS IN A MESSAGE WARNED THAT ATTEMPTS TO STRIKE AT WHAT THEY CALLED, THE FORCES MOST ACTIVELY FIGHTING IMPERIALISM IN INDONESIA WERE A GODSEND TO IMPERIALISM AND REACTION.

    THE LEADERS -- MR BREZHNEV, MR KOSYGIN AND MR MIKOYAN -- ALSO EXPRESSED PLEASURE THAT PRESIDENT SOEKARNO'S HEALTH HAD RECOVERED AND SAID THEY WERE CONFIDENT HIS APPEAL FOR ORDER IN INDONESIA WOULD BE SUCCESSFUL.

    TODAY, THE PRESIDENT HELD MORE TO-LEVEL TALKS IN DJAKARTA AFTER THE ARMY HAD ANNOUNCED THAT THE REVOLT HAD BEEN "NINETY PER SENT CRUSHED" AND ITS LEADER CAPTURED.
